Season’s greetings!


Climate Plus wishes you a pleasant Christmas/New Year and health and happiness for 2015.

Personally it’s been an up and down year. I’m rather looking forward to 2015!

For the blog it has been up and down too. I’ve been grateful for your support. We’ve struggled a bit since I took a holiday, but have just had the best day traffic-wise in months! I think Hockey’s budget was a great blessing for us. Now if Abbott would only do the decent thing and resign!

I had originally thought to have a blogging hiatus for a few weeks over the festive season. I need to do my tax, which is a major production – much ado about almost nothing, really – and some other personal stuff. On reflection, I think I’ll keep the blog open but at reduced volume. I’d hate to miss out if Abbott really did make an honest man of himself.

So as it stands I hope to get back to full production by about the third week in January. Certainly I plan to carry on from there, health permitting, while foreshadowing that we have booked a European holiday and river cruise down the Danube in October. We’ll certainly be back for the Paris climate conference in December.

I’ll leave you with this photo, packing up at Purni Bore in the Simpson Desert, which captures some of my mixed feelings about the year:

  1. To Brian and all you good folk:

    A very merry Christmas, a relaxing Boxing Day, a rip-roaring New Year and a bright and wonderful 2015 with good health, pleasant surprises, good fortune, success, good cheer and personal satisfaction.


    If you are going on a Danube trip, do you need someone to carry your bags? Be a food-taster? Security guard? Camera caddy? Phone answerer? Quality assurance officer? Factotum? Do you? Please 🙂 Anyway, have a terrific trip!

  2. Merry XMAS Brian and all those who participate in climate+ conversations.

    Hoping that the Qld state election will strike another blow against the state barnacle in chief and his tea party mates.

  3. Graham, apart from Prague to Budapest, we are spending some time in Berlin and Erlangen (near Nuremberg) and then my brother is going to show us the ancestral villages in Poland.

    John, the thing about the chief barnacle in Queensland is that he’s the worst candidate the LNP has to offer as premier apart from all the others! So knocking him off in Ashgrove with the LNP still winning overall is a distinct possibility and a problem IMHO..

  4. Brian @ 6: Looking at your trip another way: it will give the residents of your ancestral villages a look at real Australians to balance their view that Tony whatshisname and tantrum-tossing celebrities are typical Australians.

    John D. @ 5: Ha-ha-ha-ha. How can I possibly add to your perfect comment? Ha-ha-ha-ha.
