Australian woman Finds Mammoth Tusk Due To Global Warming

Mammoth tusk

Mammoth Tusk found by australian geologist

The Mammoth Tusk was found by an Australian Geologist known as ‘Thora The Explorer’ while holidaying in Alaska. She spotted a bit of a blue, curved object, protruding from the mud.

She soon recognised that she had found a Mammoth’s tusk. The tusk is estimated at a minimum of 10,000 years old.

The main reason that the tusk became visible is the more and more of the permafrost has melted over the last few years.

While this is a wonderful find that anyone would treasure, it is another indication that our governments need to make urgent changes to prevent more melting of the permafrost and glaciers.

The tusk had been turned blue by thousands of years of mineralisation.

Effects Of climate change

effects of climate change

Climate Change – What is happening?

 
The average temperature on Earth increased by 2°F in the last millennium.
 
So what? That is not much, is it?
 
This may seem a small amount but it is not. Not when you look into our planets recent history. There is a record of our climate record accessible to science. This is through items such as, coral reefs, tree rings, and ice cores. The data shows the Earths global temperature to be stable of long periods of time.
 
Small temperature changes equal huge changes in our environment. The last ice age ended 11,700 years ago. During the ice age, North America had over 3,000 feet of ice sitting on it. The temperature was only between 5 and 9 d cooler than now.
 
Confidence is high in the scientific community that temperatures will continue to rise. For decades. Due to greenhouse gases in the main.
 
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) forecast a rise of up to 10d in a hundred years.
 
I will take a look at future effects next.

Justin Trudeau

Justin Trudeau – Brownface Photo

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has apologised for a “brownface photo” which was taken during his attendance at a Vancouver private school back in 2001. Is this PC gone mad? Do we need to ban themed parties?

Trudeau has unreservedly apologised saying that when he attended the Arabian Nights themed party he should have known better, but didn’t.

Did he harm anyone? No, not really.

Were the people at the party offended? It appears not going by the photo released in the press.

Why was nothing said about this when he was first elected as Prime Minister of Canada? Because the dirt diggers of the opposition are better at their job than the first time around.

We see actors playing out roles on TV, movies and on stage. Sometimes they are playing characters who are wife beaters or racists.

Are they held accountable? No.

Why not? Because they are acting.

And acting is really what PM Trudeau was doing back in 2001. He dressed up as a character. That was all he did.

So I guess we will need to ban costume or themed parties after all.

War On Terrorism Australia

Terrorist

War On Terrorism Australia

Our war on terrorism in Australia consists of a set of laws designed to protect our citizens from attack by terrorist forces. We also have dedicated border security to ensure terrorists from Islamic State or any other radical factions are unable to gain entry into Australia.

You and I are also part of the war on terror. We are expected to be vigilant, always watching out for any suspicious actions by others. Should you see an unattended bag in an airport terminal, you should not touch it, but report it to the nearest official you can find. That may not be an actual security guard. It could, for example, be the attendant at the boarding counter.

Proposed Changes To Anti-Terrorism Laws In Australia

Peter Dutton is proposing a change to our anti-terrorism laws. Mr. Dutton wishes to have the laws amended to prevent Australians who have been fighting as a terrorist from allowed back into Australia.

For 2 years!

Dutton went on to say that under our constitution, 2 years was the most he could push for. Do you not agree that this is absolutely ridiculous? If an Australian has decided to fight for Islamic State he or she should be banned from ever returning to Australia’s shores.

I, for one, do not care if they have been fighting for Islamic State because they believe in their cause, or if they have been fighting as paid mercenaries. Once you have gone down that path, there should be no way back.

Keep Australia Safe

We want nothing to do with terror. Mr. Dutton says the constitution prevents lifetime bans. I think we should lobby our local MP to fight for a change to the constitution in order that we can keep these people out of Australia forever.

Paganism

What Is A Pagan

According to the 2016 census results, more than 15,000 Australians identified themselves as pagan. Which means with Paganism being practised on a daily basis, a religion you may have thought to be dead is a vibrant part of Australian culture.

Add to this the other 6,616 people who identified themselves as Wiccan with 829 being Druids, the old religions appear to be making a comeback. The Druid religion is a nature-based belief one with its root in ancient Celtic times.

In 2016,  Tasmania had the highest number of practising Pagans, NSW the lowest.

What Is A Pagan?

Ritual or Superstition?

These religions are largely ritual based. People put shoes in the attic or roofspace of their homes to ensure their children can always find their way home.

Shoes also feature in warding off evil spirits by being placed in front of the hearth at night.

To a Pagan, Halloween is not Halloween. It is the Feast Of Beltane, which is the feast of fertility, sex and love.

Perhaps the resurgence of Pagan religions is partly due to the disillusionment there is with the “accepted” religions as many of you view them as nothing more than corporate business behind the curtain of robes.

What Makes A Pagan?

The dictionary describes a Pagan as “a person holding religious beliefs other than those of the main world religions”.

So this leads me to wonder if breakaway the exact teachings of a recognised religion forming a splinter religion of their own could be classed as Pagans?

Historically, the old religions such as Wicca and Druids were the mainstream religions. pagans were still around at the time of the Roman Empire. It was the mad blue men that stopped the Romans from taking control of Scotland. The mad blue men were in fact the Celts that painted themselves blue for battle.

But, back to what makes you a Pagan.

If you follow or practice a non-mainstream  religion which involves rituals and incantations, then I beleive that is what a Pagan is. And the beauty of Australia is that you can practice any religion as long as no-one is harmed by it.
