Public money at work – Screen shot of a publicly funded Sydney sex clown attacking Christmas and Climate Change

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

A group of Sydney artists have collected $10,000 of public money, to perform a single showing of a play which featured a sex clown attacking the negative impact of Christmas on the global climate.

According to The Daily Telegraph;

SYDNEY Lord Mayor Clover Moore has slugged already hard-up ratepayers a whopping $10,000 to fund a controversial left-wing review that attacked Christmas as being bad for the environment.

The show, called Climate Change Variety Hour, was performed in front of tiny audience of just 70 people at Sydney University on Saturday night.

The poor turnout means Ms Moore spent about $142 of ratepayers’ cash per audience member.

One of the acts featured a ­bizarre performance by a near-naked “sex clown”.

This isn’t the first time mixing a climate theme with inane nonsense has successfully secured public grant money. But seriously – is there no limit to bad taste and public waste? Couldn’t Sydney’s Lord Mayor find any better use for that $10,000? Maybe something slightly less climate related, like helping homeless people, or perhaps funding a few drug rehab beds, to help address Sydney’s out of control substance abuse problems?

    • Is it some sort of ‘climate change’ religious ritual in the video?
      Can someone confirm the ritual shows the AGW priest in the costume and the naked public on their hands and knees paying the penance and taking the costs where the sun doesn’t shine?

  1. At first blush it looked like Mother Gaia doling out punishments, maybe against a hockey stick agenda? Then I read “sex clown” and thought it could be some ritualistic form of railroad initiation?

  2. Looks like a good subject for a public service billboard ad or two …”.Your money at work “……

  3. This, is what the celebration of Christmas is all about: bringing “comfort and joy.”

    (Note: While there is an ultimate reason for Christmas (the birth of Jeshua, the Messiah), the general celebration, i.e., the generosity and love and merriment surrounding that day, is for EVERYONE, regardless of one’s beliefs.)

    AGW/dogmatic anti-materialism = disappoint little children.

    • Hey Janice, it is CHRISTMAS. So from me to you a merry Christmas and as a gift for your last comment 1,000,000 plusses! and I hope you will have a great 2016 and beyond), ( LOL at Marcus and Kevin “cheapskates” a joke guys)

      • Dear “Sybot,”
        Dear, dear, Sybot of the many encouragements to me these past difficult (“testing, testing, 1, 2, 3,….” — thanks for that; it WILL end! 🙂 ) months: Thank you. Regardless of what my comment is worth in 1750 dollars (or, sadly, apparently, per one Canadian commenter I read here recently, in current Canadian dollars…), your generous kindness warmed my heart.
        Glad you liked it.
        MERRY CHRISTMAS, to you, too. May 2016 be your best year, so far!
        #(:))
        Fondly,
        Janice
        [The mods will remind Janice that a 1750 dollar will be difficult to find in print (much less a comment be paid for in kind or in equivalent), but, since the Colonies had not yet even finished the French and Indian War in 1750, taxes were a little bit lower than in 1770-1776. 8<) .mod]

      • I don’t know what country you are from, Menicholas, but in the U.S. and Canada, we send each other Christmas greetings and say it, too, in the days leading up to Christmas, that is, during Christmastime.

    • It is still possible to touch the heart in this cynical age in which we live.
      Thanks for posting this.
      Happy Christmas to all those who run this site, contribute to it, post comments or just visit it.

      • Dear Mr. Verney,
        Lol, I THINK you meant the Salvation Army comment… (heh) Re: “possible to touch the heart”: yes, indeed, at least, in those who have hearts to touch… . And you are so very welcome! My pleasure.
        Happy Christmas! #(:))

    • From TJ to JM: Merry Christmas Janice!
      How ’bout a red Camaro Z28 with a green convertible top for Christmas? Ok, scrap that. How about good cheer to keep our own motors recon’.
      Best wishes.

      • Dear Tom J (smile),
        So that WAS you… . #(:)) Merry Christmas to you!
        LIKE the Red (yes!) Camaro Z28 (1969 sounds good to me) — HATE the green top (lololo), so, yes — scrapped. Yes — invest in horsepower and style and handling NOT utilitarian “thuthtainability.”
        I sure hope you are doing some drawing/painting — and wrenching on a motor or two.
        Take care,
        Janice

    • Funny how so many (in the US) don’t object to St. Patrick’s Day but do object to the Christ part of Christmas?
      (Yes, I know he wasn’t born Dec.25th. (The best I know it was Sept. 11, 3 BC.) Saturnalia was “baptized” as his birth to change the meaning for a pagan celebration way back when.)

  4. The $10,000 would have been better spent on a nice bonfire… using the $10,000 for the fuel.
    And what’s this about “sex clowns”?!?!! Apparently I haven’t been keeping up with the latest job classifications from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Lord only knows what other new jobs are out there.

  5. People get $10,000 for this stuff. Sad enough.
    But then Climate science gets $10 billion for the same thing (not counting the $350 billion wasted on green energy).
    What the heck is going on.

    • Yep, lets raise the bar.
      I guess it’ll take more than an “artists” $10,000 peccadillo to shock this old man.
      I’ve got high speed internet 🙂

    • Too many zereos, but I think you get 1 million sex clowns for that sort of money. Seems about right to me.

  6. Welcome to the world of inner city sandalistas, where taxpayers money is cast about like confetti on looney stuff like “stopping” the climate from changing.

  7. From The Economist, Letters to the Editor: Bernie’s Briefs. This is underwear with Bernie Sanders’s face emblazoned across the backside along with the words “Feel the Bern”.

  8. Well, I suppose that that’s an improvement on $340,000 (aus. dollars) on the Gergis reconstruction paper that lasted three weeks before retraction.
    Having said that, for the money, they got alarmist headlines all over the world.
    The paper has been debunked and retracted long long ago – but the alarmist articles still exist with no corrections or apologies.
    See example below – then click the first link “a new report” and you will be taken to where the report no longer exists.
    So this guardian article remains with no correction. But the wonderful “Children won’t know what snow is” has been deleted. That’s the trouble with alarmist “science”. It doesn’t have to be valid – it only has to be profitable and published:

  9. When you belong to a cult, your brain interprets information with tunnel vision. The absurd and nonsensical can appear as normal.
    The best weather and climate since the Medieval Warm Period………can appear to be extreme weather and catastrophic.
    The greening of the planet and booming biosphere…….can appear to be threatening all life.
    Record crop yields and increasing world food production …..can appear to be disasters.
    Modest beneficial warming can appear to be leading towards a doomsdale outcome.
    Sea levels increasing at an inch/decade can cause fear of sea levels increasing at 10 times the observed rate.
    A beneficial gas can appear to be pollution.
    A speculative theory represented by computer models that project climate and weather for 100 years…………can carry more weight than observations in the real world which contradict the models.

    • Mike, excellent comment, but I must be a bit pedantic; “Sea levels increasing at an inch/decade” More like 1/2 to 1/5 of that.

      • David A, I don’t think that was “pedantic” — if I had not been lazy (and I don’t have it memorized, that’s for sure), I would have corrected that one, too — at that rate, it would be a bit alarming (though, still not proven caused-by-CO2, of course). So, thanks — from this commenter.

  10. Sometimes art imitates farce while sometimes simultaneously farce imitates CAGW, however, I wonder at the complete absence of reality imitating CAGW.
    Hey, its craziness after all . . . . .

  11. Had oysters on the half shell tonight with a pint and some other goodies (no sex clowns present though).
    Noticed that the oysters were 2x last year’s price. So I asked … you guessed it.
    “yeah bud, climate change is increasing our shellfish prices”.
    I think generous tips are warranted for good service, but I couldn’t bring myself to do so.
    I guess fake pricing based on climate change is affecting my tip rate.
    Too much BS in our day to day lives.
    Too many scammers.

    • Besides the fact that “Christmas” seems to inflate prices from gasoline to air travel and groceries, I would have asked my money back based on the fact that the oysters were tainted by the fumes of the boats that harvested them, the trucks that transported them and the smell of the waiters armpits because he doesn’t use warm water and soap to wash himself in the morning before coming to work and sweating while riding his bike to get there. Every once in a while knute you just have to bitch back!

      “I think generous tips are warranted for good service, but I couldn’t bring myself to do so.

      You seem to imply that the waiter was the one who set the price. Methinks you are taking out your frustrations on the wrong person. If you did not like the price, you shouldn’t have purchased the product.
      Old Florida waiter’s joke:
      What’s the difference between a Canadian tourist and a canoe? Canoes tip.

    • Dear JM,
      We share the same initials, but, we differ much on this issue. To me, a woman in a “room” full of men, it was very kind of Mr. Worrall to do that. It may be my personal failing, but, it would have made me feel very uncomfortable. So, I am grateful. There are, as U.K. pointed out, many other places to go see what was covered in that video frame… .

      • Janice
        would you be offended if a person ( I imply a woman here) was breast-feeding in a room full of men?
        Get a life.

      • “Janice

        Alex, I was breast feeding once and you would not believe how many people stared, puked, and were offended.
        Thomas Judd

      • Alex,
        Yes, I would. I think such a public display of a part of one’s anatomy (and in REAL life, to boot — your hypothetical is not an apt one, for you added another factor, i.e., it would not be just a recording/picture) is disgusting.
        Get sense of propriety.
        Janice

      • @ Alex.
        So, your life is so fulfilling that you need to try to beat up on our Janice, eh.
        Talk to me, I’ll be here all day.

      • Oh, James (a.k.a. U.K (US)),
        Thank you for that. Alex’s sharp remark DID hurt. I know, I know, don’t give people the power… — just a weakness of mine, STILL haven’t learned to “choose” to not be offended. As you can tell from my mistakes in my typing of my response to Alex, I was upset!
        Your kindness melted all that away — smiling, now. #(:))
        Thanks for being such a gallant “big brother,” here.
        Merry Christmas out there in Illinois!
        Take care,
        Janice

      • Dear James (ukus),
        Thank you for being such a gallant “big brother.” You turned my sad face into a smiling one.

        Get a life.
        Cultures differ. In some cultures it’s no big deal.
        Here in the US….
        A couple of decades ago one of my sisters delivered the first child that made me an Uncle. She breast fed. At a family gathering she noticed that I was watching. She showed a bit alarm at first but then she realized that I was simply thrilled by the bond of a mother and child.
        If it had been in a “room full of men” and I perceived that one of them wanted her to get the damn baby out of the way, I would have taken his lights out.
        (Or at least tried to.)

      • u.k.(us)
        ‘So, your life is so fulfilling that you need to try to beat up on our Janice’.
        You call that a beat up? I think you should get out more often, too.
        Janice treats this website as some sort of social media, cloyingly sickly sweet and quite fake. It’s quite……….something.
        As my wife would say: the Janices of the world set back the women’s movement(not feminists) 50 years.
        You’re such a hero for defending her. I hope you are nearby to her and can catch her when she has the vapours and swoons

      • @ Alex
        I don’t care (or if you wanna go deep, I don’t give a flying &%*$) about you , Janice seems to be a nice person.
        So treat her with respect, is that so hard.

      • Alex, it was the feminsts that destroyed the feminist movement.
        Your anger towards Janice just illustrates your own intolerance towards anyone who standards differ from yours.
        I know you won’t, but you really should try to grow up.

    • JM in Canada on December 19, 2015 at 7:08 pm
      Why the censor bar? You know, not everyone is traumatized by the sight of breasts…

      And the mindbogglingly intolerant also advocate a censor bar on the statue of the Spirit of Justice in the US Dept of Justice building in Washington DC.

      The mindbogglingly intolerant also want a censor bar on Michelangelo’s David as well.

        Janice Moore,
        You are, of course, free to appeal your case for censorship to the moderat0rs and Anthony. I even encourage you to do so. Then you very well may get your wish of censorship.
        Disrespect? Disrespect is what happens to our intellects when intolerance of those two statues is allowed.

      • Fascinating how others get so offended when they find out that their personal lifestyle choices aren’t followed by everyone.

  12. Janice Moore on December 19, 2015 at 6:59 pm
    @ Brian H (who is certain to appear here… any second, now…):
    Mr. Whitman is an excellent speller. “ITS” IS JUST A TYPO.

    Janice,
    Well, I could attempt an ex post facto rationalization that ‘its’ was the correct usage in the statement “Hey, its craziness after all . . .”.
    Let me think. …… Oh, how about the excuse that any word I used in a sentence with craziness focus gives me an inherent poetic license to use any word arbitrarily even if the use is crazy wrong. Any takers on that excuse?
    John

    • Oh, well, then, John. (lol) I DID think of one which I was going to cite to Mr. H., but refrained
      Here it is: “Hey, its craziness after all is what makes it so much fun to mock!”
      Sigh. And, no doubt, Mr. H. will fault me for failure-to-insert-a-comma 2 times in that sentence.
      SO! Here’s another one: “Hey, its craziness after all the AGWers have said so far was quite predictable.”

      • Notice the period left off the end of my first sentence at 7:27pm (sly look)… . I did that on purpose (wink, wink, nod, nod).

      • lol, “second sentence” — quitting now — trying to outwit Mr. H. is hopeless (for me, I mean….. er….. because I have so many other more important things on my mind that I end up making typos often — LOL).

      • Janice Moore December 19, 2015 at 7:30 pm
        i.e., John Whitman MEANT to write ITS and IT’S just fine! 🙂

        The matter could so easily be resolved if HAEL (Hoffer’s Amendment to the English Language) were to be fully implemented. HAEL is based on a few simple facts:
        o its and it’s sound precisely the same
        o in the spoken language, context entirely defines which meaning is to be used
        o since which meaning can be derived entirely from context (see 2nd point above) there is no need to differentiate between the two.
        I propose that henceforth itz be used to replace both. Itz obvious from itz usage what itz in any sentence means, itz silly to argue otherwise, and itz equally silly to hold onto an anachronism that demand that the various itz be spelled differently. Itz easy to see my point, and itz beyond my comprehension why itz hasnt caught on. Think of all the pixels that could have been saved by itz, all the comments itz would have saved us from reading, all the sniping and snobbish arguments swept into the dustbin of history.
        Itz only logical.

        Remember what Horton the Elephant said in Dr. Seuss’ book ‘Horton Hatches The Egg’,

        “I meant what I said and I said what I meant.”

      • [But, your friendly, local moderator quickly notes that the ITZ is only tropical. .mod]
        The ITZ (all caps) is only tropical, but is both spelled (all caps) and pronounced ( Eye Tee Zee) differently. In fact, itz not a word at all, itz a TLA. But your point is topical.

      • So we now have an “it’s vs its” controversy? 😎
        The best I’ve heard to keep the proper English straight is to think of “his and hers”.
        If it belongs to him, then it’s “his”. If it doesn’t, then it’s “hers”. If he’s going to take it from her, then it will be “his”.
        (Through in proper nouns and we have why English is such a wonderfully confusing language.)
        I also heard a simple way to know when to use “effect” or “affect” but I don’t remember what it was.
        (The eaffects of age I guess.)

      • And, dear Bruce Cobb, lol, I was not being picky about Mr. Whitman’s writing — I am just tired of seeing Brian H continually correcting people’s typos, so, I tried to defend Mr. Whitman from a “Brian H” attack. I would not have said anything, but for Brian H and his pickiness campaign.

  13. Australia is a county where anything is possible.
    Here is a wayback machine copy of a press-release from Wollongong University – which plainly states that
    “Researchers from UOW are developing technologies for next generation offshore wind turbines that are one-third the price and 1,000 times more efficient, and they could be installed off the coast of Australia in the next five years.”
    The claim from this esteemed organization lead to viral coverage.
    The researcher received about $200,000 for this project.
    I do not know whether the grant awarding body were aware that wind turbines can never become 1000 times more efficient without a very significant relaxation of the laws of physics.
    Since the generator unit in modern large turbines is already more than 90% efficient.
    90,000% efficiency seems unlikely anytime soon. (sarc)
    http://web.archive.org/web/20150227044807/http://media.uow.edu.au/releases/UOW184359.html?ssSourceSiteId=UOW_Main

    • and 1,000 times more efficient
      ====================
      a false claim to get money is fraud most everywhere in the world, unless of course you are a politician or a church. apparently climate science has now jumped the shark.
      clearly you cannot make a wind turbine 1000 times more efficient. the article even admits the maximum improvement is only 7-10%.

      • Exactly correct.
        I called this stunt frawd-U-lent when discussing it at the time that it emerged.
        An internet acquaintance warned me that I should be careful when using the “f” word.
        Honestly, I have nothing and if the UoW wished to sue me then good luck to them.
        Because, these claims were whorish attention seeking behaviour, anti-science, anti-engineering, anti-rational and effectively frawd.

    • Nothing has changed, 60 years ago when I was a young man in New Zealand it was said ” An Australian businessman, and or con-man ” Yep, its what they teach in the Or-strain University.

  14. And all along we’ve been worried about getting the ‘science’ right. Who knew? Don’t think the general public doesn’t notice crap like this….. they do.

    • Indeed…and the ‘production’ that furnishes the societal wealth, which allows them to practice their self-absorbed, self-indulgent intellectual necrophilia. Sydney University, even an embarrassment to ‘The Conversation’, appears to largely be talking to itself. Clearly a sign of institutionalized insanity.

  15. I’m dreaming of a kinky Christmas
    Just like the ones I used to know
    Where the panties glisten
    with every new position
    To hear moans in the afterglow.
    I’m dreaming of a kinky Christmas
    With every pathetic porno play I write
    Yes, I know each act is quite a sight
    But for your public servants
    It’s a delight
    Now, I have to warn everybody, the reason I could write the foregoing is because I’m no longer employed. If you don’t wish to read any more things like the above you’re all going to have to insure that other people such as myself (yes, they do exist) remain employed so that they don’t have oodles of free time to dither away writing things like the above. So, this Christmas I encourage you all to give yourselves a present and fight the CAGW crowd with common sense. Otherwise, if they get their way, there’s going to be millions of unemployed people with oodles of free time to dither away writing things like I just wrote. And, don’t be surprised if some of them actually apply for grant money (like for a theatrical play) to write this kinda stuff. Ask yourselves: Do you really want that? Well, do you?
    Merry Christmas to all! And to all a good night!
    And day!
    And week!
    Best wishes to all!

  16. I wish all WUWT followers a merry Christmas, Hanuka or Yule, but the other day I received a rebuke on the Paris COP 21 booklet and also a good look at Australia’s stance on Climate Change, I do not know who distributed it, as it was delivered by hand, but my neighbor another skeptic actually got one too. It mentioned JoNova, and local grants to UNE Armidale
    and the Armidale Sustainable Living group that had a petition to support COP21. Anyway have a good holiday season where ever you are.

    • And I am sending my copy to Barnaby Joyce the Minister for Agriculture, who I voted for, but he is a national party and deputy leader of the Fed.Nationals.

  17. Giving $10,000 to the Salvation Army would have been money better spent, than $10,000 for a dogmatic, CAGW-promoting, anti-Santa, anti-children, tiresome, fatuous, self-indulgent, theatrical Rant.

  18. Sanctimonious self-righteous environmentalists, so filled with hate, pointing fingers everywhere, forgetting that for every finger pointing out, three are curled, pointing back at the true villain to the environment.
    Being so anti- is not the same as being for something … the joy of life eludes them.

  19. If only Spitzer had thought of this. He could have paid “Kristen” for a live stage performance and no one would have been the wiser. $10,000 to his “sex clown” to ensure a satisfied customer.

  20. Presumably the audience of 70 found that it was a meaningful deconstruction of capitalism’s capture of Christmas [not that they’d agree with Christmas in the first place]
    I note that there were over 54,000 students and 7,600 staff members who didn’t attend the review
    Clover Moore has some explaining to do.

  21. It is with a heavy heart I see that the council under Clover Moore has funded such a degrading to the human person, betrayal of art dressed up as sick fantasy.
    However I am sure that if she was aware this would happen she would have defunded this organisation.
    Many of her achievements in the City of Sydney have assisted the poor and mentally ill on the streets.
    The expert architectural advice she obtained has meant that newer buildings are more energy efficient and some are covered in plants,so they don’t focus heat on their surroundings,part of the UHI effect.
    Clearly the theatre group should do a full refund and donate it to assist those less fortunate on the streets.

  22. You guys have got it all wrong.
    For the sake of the environment, Christmas should be banned along with all festivities, birthdays etc.
    Think of the children!

          “no, you don’t deserve what you have and i’m leveling the scales of justice .. i’m my turn”

  23. They’ve got their own global conference next year – SexClownsOfthePanet22.
    Prepare the private jets.

  24. I am far from understanding how many folk in Sydney are bereft of a home and enough to eat, but a donation of $10,000 must have helped provide some relief. Instead those custodians of the public purse elected to squander money on some insane demonstration of their faith. These people are certifiable.
    To Anthony and everyone else who contributes or visits this blog, may I wish you all the very best for Christmas and 2016.

  25. The ones that need educating about waste are the ones that were pushing alarmism in Paris. Speaking of waste, so was the play.

    • I’m not liberal or conservative – I simply imagine what if resources were spent for any improvement …

  26. I’ve done some more reading about this. I don’t know how these people bear to live. There’s a scene in The Last Battle where Aslan puts a feast in front of the treacherous dwarfs and they think they’re eating disgusting rubbish. Here we have a wonderful world before us, full of beautiful things, the kindness of strangers (many of you in this blog), cleaner air and water, and all they can do is hate. We have to be wary of dangerous people, but hatred will blind us too.
    To all of you out there who seek truth without hatred, Merry Christmas (or Hanukkah or whatever) and many more of them.

  27. Strippers against global warming!
    HAHAHA…on the other hand, if we get to return to the Little Ice Age which seems to be the goal here of our rulers, the art of stripping on stage will end. Performing in fur coats will be ‘in’.

  28. “Couldn’t Sydney’s Lord Mayor find any better use for that $10,000? Maybe something slightly less climate related, like helping homeless people, or perhaps funding a few drug rehab beds, to help address Sydney’s out of control substance abuse problems?”
    Let the peasants roll in Clover!

  29. In its essence, the Warmist religion hates humanity. This peep-show (or whatever it is – I refuse to watch it) is a celebration of that hatred. These folks make the Grinch (pre-revelation) look like mother teresa.

    • True.
      Maybe if they watch the Grinch coming to his senses (when his heart grew 2 sizes! 🙂 )….
      How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)

      Grinch (before): “They’re finding out now that no Christmas is coming… .”
      But,
      Those with eyes that can see: “Christmas Day is in our grasp, so long as we have hands to clasp.
      Hey, “Grinch,” yeah you (and you and you and you, too) — there’s a hand reaching out …. to you. As someone said (more or less), “To hate is to drink poison thinking it will hurt someone else.” Come on, join in the celebration of love and joy (no matter what you believe about Christmas’ ultimate meaning).

  30. The article reads in part:
    “A group of Sydney artists have collected $10,000 of public money, to perform a single showing of a play which featured a sex clown attacking the negative impact of Christmas on the global climate.”
    Piffle.
    At the recent climate conference in Paris there were about 40,000 clowns in attendance and it cost taxpayers billions.
    Two decade ago, the question was:
    Is global warming alarmism simply false or is it fraudulent?
    Now, after the Mann hockey stick fiasco, the fabricated aerosol data used to fudge the warming alarmists’ climate models, the Climategate emails, and the many false “adjustments” of the surface temperature data record, there is no question:
    Global warming alarmism is clearly fraudulent – in financial terms, it is one of the greatest frauds of all time.

      • A sex clown is a made up phrase to GET YOUR ATTENTION.
        Sex always works and people like to laugh.
        Unfortunately, I just don’t see it working as the Sex Clown Skeptic

    • That’s when a guy drops his pants and his girlfriend starts laughing uncontrollably.
      It’s the antithesis to the Great Immensity. Um, not really. The Great Immensity is the male ego just prior to the reality described above.
      Now, You don’t think I know this from personal experience do you? Of course I don’t. Honest. I don’t. I’ve, um, uh, been … told this.

  31. Okay! #(:))
    After that interesting side-discussion… (cough) BACK TO CHRISTMAS!
    First, a reprise from December 18, 2018

  33. Climate and inane nonsense seem to go together quite well. They have been mates since at least the 70s.

  34. clown is in one way the right word , 10,000 and how much do you think it actually cost to put on ?
    Well someone is certainly laughing all the way with a ho, ho ,ho and no doubt will have a better Christmas thanks to the tax payers of Sydney.

  35. The purpose of all ‘climate change’ activities seems to be to give otherwise unemployable individuals a handle on government grants.
