swellnet Flood Appeal Directory...Donated by "GIVIT".
Qldurrz again Salute Oz for Qld / NSW Telethon & National Concert & recognizes those days are over!
In fact there was very little in the way of Flood Appeals when tbb last reported.
Given the mass of water...the Flood Appeals have stepped up & Qld must now return the favour.
Yes! tbb repeats he has given twice to Vic's recent homeless crisis & promised to give twice again soon.
Least we can do is muster up what support lines are out there...cont from last guide...

This time round we now have a Flood Appeal Directory...it's only fair that we share that.
Firstly! Crew may have noted Dan bossing his Vax mandate for Volunteers...
If Unvaxed Vic / NSW crew wish to Volunteer for Floods then tbb can point you where...
Blaze Aid run Regional Fencing repair Camps (All are No Vax)
https://blazeaid.com.au/

NSW Govt now have a Full Donations Guide
Note: [ GIVIT ] ( How did they get Top Billing? Huh! ) see next...
https://www.nsw.gov.au/floods/recovery/donations

ABC ( Now also stepped up & has a handy Guide/s )
Hey! Wait up tbb! Wot?
Isn't that there [GIVIT] Bossing #1 Position on the Hottest 100 Donors...( Nah! Ya must be seein' things!)
Like how come this Mob be bullying all Govts + ABC to hand over all our possessions & money! (Dunno!)
+ Also! Why does no one ever once mention this Secret Sect that preys on the poor.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2022-10-21/how-to-help-victorian-flood-victi...

Vic Govt have a decent Support / Resource Guide (But there's a catch!) Yep...that be "GIVIT"
https://www.education.vic.gov.au/school/teachers/management/Pages/flood-...
Unlike NSW - Vic Donations List only links the one mob > "GIVIT" ( Like WTF or Who is this Newbie)
Vic/Qld/NSW Govts now run "GIVIT" (tbb checked > GIVIT is run by "Insurance Australia Group"
https://www.education.vic.gov.au/school/teachers/management/Pages/flood-...

So why is Dan asking Aussies to Donate to an Insurance Agency? How does that not sound real dirty!
Why is Dan promoting Donations only to an Insurance Agency above all Charity Groups! Please Explain!

"GIVIT" Has promptly got Melbourne Cup elites bankrolling it...
Here's a demo...
(Cry for Help) Couch Potato Mum needs a scabies free slightly less soaked couch to surf on....
Tip: Remove yer Stash from the zip cushion prior to dumping yer Mouldy old Couch on Desperate Mum .
Bizarre downtown Trash'or'Treasure done by Highest Level Authorities...(This needs a double take!)
Like in what world are our Premiers running Op shops for Insurance Agencies...Things are getting bleak!

"GIVIT" sounds like shitting over victims! (FFS Please get a less creepy name!) OMG! Let us all pray!
Will we see the Charity Groups battle to hold ground against Insurance Agencies for Donations
How the hell did this wretched beast escape from the Natcab Lab.

tbb thinks it's best to avoid the ebay creepshow & play safe with yer more desperate Donation Groups.

Who cares about emissions when you have an air show to put on ? Are these real jets ?https://twitter.com/thefigen_/status/1593271998586802177?s=46&t=8pYPk8J18T1Siqv2sDaRpg

yeah, they seem to be spewing out a lot of fumes, and looks real, wonder how much better the USA's are? And they are starting to look like what you expect those UAP craft to do, but they seem to have no emissions

Yeah they looked real at first but in the comments , majority say they are remote control toys and that pilots couldn’t possibly take the G forces in some of those turns. Regardless though air shows are just burning fuel and polluting for no good reason other than entertainment.

Agree, great news, however this passage caught my eye:

"It takes enormous resources and effort to advance fusion research. One approach turns hydrogen into plasma, an electrically charged gas, which is then controlled by humungous magnets."

Humungous?

Given all this, it is probable that also, Hell* has frozen over.

Auckland has been breaking records left right and centre.

And the amount of moisture in the atmosphere and intensity of the downpours in a small amount of town has been very very significant..

"Between 8pm and 10pm on Friday night, more than 131mm of rain fell in Auckland. By 1am, the region had recorded 249mm of rain, exceeding the previous 24-hour record of 161.8mm set in February 1985."

Sea ice extent is at record lows across both the Antarctic and Arctic, pushing two standard deviations away from the 1981-2010 average..

Woah that's immense. Was it being battered by a storm or something? Can see the current or whatever puts pressure on the coastline and crack, there's another massive chunk just above it let's go first. That's.... Dunno.
And what happened in 2016? Antarctic Ice cover plummeted and well, Zach's going to need a new graph. Thx again

Does all this melted ice add volume to the sea ?

Try this experiment. Take an icecube out of the fridge and put it in an empty glass. After the icecube has melted, tip the contents of the glass into the sea. Then have a think about what you just did.

Haha, while I appreciate the clever use of sarcasm and irony WP it seems you're using it to try to bully me into agreeing with you. Why don't we take your experiment and multiply it by 6 billion people?
Anyhow that one chunk gone is the size of greater London ffs and keep in mind at the bottom of these graphs it says ZERO. No sea ice, it's all melted!
The problem is a 1mm rise in sea level is 1m of coastline lost. Not sure about the coast wherever the hell you live but around here that's another chunk of the the GORd gone for a start.
It's later than you think

not sure what you're talking about @StandingLeft.. I thought you posed the question as to whether the water from icemelt (icebergs/icesheets/glaciers etc) adds volume to the sea. Maybe I should have said this:

Take a massive glass about the size of Mt Everest. Stick a few glaciers and icebergs in it, let them melt and then empty the glass into the ocean and see what happens.

Q: Does water from icemelt increase the volume of the oceans leading to sea level rise?
A: Of course it fucking does. Any idiot can see that.

Now as to what you're on about this idiot has no idea.
