Extreme Temperature Diary- Wednesday December 24th, 2020/ Main Topic: “Cringe”…An Honest Ad Coming From Australia

The main purpose of this ongoing blog will be to track United States extreme or record temperatures related to climate change. Any reports I see of ETs will be listed below the main topic of the day. I’ll refer to extreme or record temperatures as ETs (not extraterrestrials).😉

Main Topic: “Cringe”…An Honest Ad Coming From Australia

Dear Diary. I was really chuckling this morning when I stumbled upon a short video put together by a group truthfully entailing how badly Australia has shirked its global responsibility to bring carbon emissions down since the 1990s. Sometimes humor is the best medicine for what ails society, and this one has it in proverbial spades. Check it out for a little holiday cheer:

Honest Government Ad: Australia’s Kyoto Carryover Credits

The Australian Government was not allowed to speak at the latest Climate Summit, so it made an ad about its climate policy instead – and it’s surprisingly honest and informative. Video: The Juice Media

(The Juice Media) – This is a special double-length Honest Government Ad, featuring our first-ever time-travel historical sequence, because there’s just so much shitfuckery to cover. Hence why it took us a little longer than usual to research, write, and make this one.

I had of course heard about the Kyoto Carryover Credits but I never really understood the depth of shitfuckery until January, when Simon Holmes a Court talked about it on Episode 8 of The Juice Media Podcast. I couldn’t believe my ears, but I knew right away we had to make an HGA about it so that people could get their head around it more easily. But then of course Covid happened, and then the US election, so I had to put this script on hold. I’m glad we’ve managed to round off the year with the video I planned to make in March – which is just so 2020.

I want to make it very clear that we’re not “breaking” this story. Many brilliant scholars and journos have written about it over the years, in detail. And I’ll post some of them below for those who want to read up more about this topic. [more]
