RUNAWAY GLOBAL WARMING DEBUNKED

This new research paper debunks the myth of runaway global warming and suggests a temperature rise of about 0.6C for the twenty-first century (the same as the twentieth), but don't expect to see it featured on the national news headlines.

WIND ENERGY - THE IMPOSSIBLE NIGHTMARE

Christopher Booker is one of those journalists who does not mince his words. In this recent column he uses devastating logic and facts to demonstrate the impossibility of the government achieving its energy policy. A must read for all climate realists.

AUSSIE INSURANCE LOSSES NOT AFFECTED BY GW

We are constantly being told that one of the main indicators of global warming is the increase in the incidents of major climate extremes, which are measured by increases in insurance claims. Here is a paper which has studied the figures in Australia and says "The collective evidence reviewed suggests that societal factors – dwelling numbers and values – are the predominant reasons for increasing insured losses due to natural hazards in Australia. The impact of human-induced climate change on insured losses is not detectable at this time. Yet another myth debunked by actual evidence.

CLIMATE MODELS FAILING YET AGAIN

Actual scientific observation is showing yet again the shortcomings of the much hyped "climate models". This report explains how scientists have found that the ozone over the Mid-Atlantic is being destroyed by 50% more than predicted by the computer models. This in turn leads to a reduction of methane resulting in a reduced greenhouse effect. It is becoming increasingly clear that the models are flawed (see here, here and here) in a number of ways and cannot be a reliable guide to climate prediction.

VOLCANOES UNDER THE ARCTIC CONFIRMED

I wonder if this amazing discovery will make the dumbed-down news? Could it be that active volcanoes under the Arctic ice will cause some of it to melt? Read the story here.

GREAT GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE LINKS RESTORED

The links to the film "The Great Global Warming Swindle" have been restored, so the whole film can now be viewed by going to the right hand side bar - GGWS Parts 1-9. Or even easier - click here. Unfortunately the links seem to keep changing and many of them had ceased to work.

MADNESS

Again the EU Referendum blog, superbly written by the indefatigable Richard North, has described the windpower folly precisely.

THE ANSWER IS NOT BLOWING IN THE WIND

This Daily Mail article shows once more the massive cost to us all of the government's headlong dash to cut our carbon emissions by using windpower - even though there is now plenty of good evidence that there is no need to do so. (See the numerous articles on this site!)

LATEST OPINION POLL CONFIRMS PUBLIC SCEPTICAL OF GW

This Observer article confirms that, despite all the relentless propaganda, the general public do not swallow the GW theory. Poll after poll tells the same story. The more hysterical and one-sided the claims, the more unconvincing they sound; particularly when in the real world, temperatures are not rising but falling! As the public see the massive cost of the measures proposed by government to "combat" it, they are bound to question the basis of the claims being made; scepticism could soon turn to anger.

For full poll details see here.

GOVERNMENT PLANS TO COST US ALL ROUND

This report in the Guardian sets out the outline of the government's measures to force us all to lower our carbon use. Every step is leading to increased costs, and all because they refuse to look at the science in a sensible way.

HISTORIC CO2 LEVEL DATA DECEPTION

Why do scientists who support the CO2 theory of global warming only use measurements of CO2 levels taken from ice cores to reconstruct past levels, when there are large numbers of well documented actual measurements made by scientists from as far back as 1812? The answer is in order to manipulate and deceive, according to This report by Dr. Zbigniew Jaworowski which explains that scientific measurements of CO2 levels show that between 1880 and 1940, when global temperatures increased by 0.5C, levels of CO2 increased from 290ppm to 440ppm (about 60ppm higher than today).

Between 1949 and 1970 global temperature decreased by 0.3C and the CO2 level dropped to 330ppm. Today when man-made CO2 emissions are 30 times higher than in 1980 the CO2 level is similar to that in the 1930's.

The paper referred to is essential reading for any climate realist. It is a quite shocking inditement of the establishment scientists of today. Will we ever believe a government scientist again?

HOW THE IPCC CORRUPTS SCIENCE

Here is a very interesting report by an expert reviewer,Dr. Vincent Gray, who explains in clear terms how the IPCC reports are compiled. His conclusion is that the whole process is so corrupt that he believes the IPCC must be abolished.

EU THREATENS UK POWER

Here's a thought provoking article from Professor Philip Stott's excellent blog. It shows how the UK is coming increasingly under the rule of the EU, whose extreme regulations are requiring us to close down power stations.

AL GORE'S ENERGY USE UP 10%

Since last year Al Gore has, so we are told, put in energy saving measures. This article explains that his efforts were in vain. Bad luck Al, but don't give up! He should have listened to his own campaign.

ALARMISTS BLAME EXTREME WEATHER ON GW

The beauty of climate change from the point of view of the alarmists is that they can blame any extreme weather on it as shown in this report from Wisconsin.

TREES NOT A GUIDE TO PAST CLIMATE

For years scientists have used tree rings as a proxy for temperature in order to reconstruct the past temperature of the planet. This new study throws all that into doubt. It is yet another nail in the coffin of the notorious hockey stick graph which was used to try to deny the existence of the medieval warm period.

EXTREMISTS TAKE DIRECT ACTION ON GW

This article tells the story of coal being hi-jacked to try to stop a power station. Is this the start of a new turn in the GW story?

"CIVIL SOCIETY" SAYS EU MUST STOP CLIMATE CHANGE

At the EU Agora (see post for June 11) , "Civil Society" (consisting of 99% committed climate alarmists) made a vast number of suggestions on how to stop climate changing, from the very low key - reducing washing up, to issuing carbon ration cards to every household. The final text of the Agora is available here, though, to be honest, I would not recommend reading it unless you really have nothing to do. The really alarming thing is that there are almost 500 people who are so brain-washed that they really believe that armageddon is just around the corner, and yet, astonishingly, they also believe that our salvation is at hand if only the EU and the World adopt their solutions. We also heard from a US professor who believed that all humans should become vegetarian.

NZ RENEWABLES LET THEM DOWN

This report in the Guardian explains how a drought in New Zealand has led to hydro-electric power stations failing. This is causing serious shortages leading to power cuts.

EU CONSULTS "CIVIL SOCIETY" ON GW

On Thursday I will be in Brussels attending something called an Agora. It is a type of conference organised by the EU to which 500 non-governmental organisations are invited. I have been asked to represent The Freedom Association.

The Agora website lists all the participants and also has a comment section for them. The pre-conference on-line discussions clearly show that the vast majority of those invited are fully signed up to the alarmist agenda. Already the Friends of the Earth representative has suggested that I should be banned (scroll to bottom of the link). If you have time, read the pre-conference Working Papers and you will get a clear idea of the mind-set of those in charge of the EU. The conference ends on Friday evening and I will post my impressions on my return.

STILL NO NEW SUNSPOTS!

While the media, the UN, the EU and most political leaders continue to prepare to put their people through a very costly decarbonisation programme this report warns we could be facing a totally different problem - global cooling.

IS THE EARTH WARMING OR COOLING?

It all depends on the way the data is gathered and handled. This article gives a lot of detail, but is an interesting read. A tale of lies, damned lies and statistics!

US TO DUMP GW BILL

This report gives the details of this much predicted outcome. Once the facts of the financial disaster that would result emerged US legislators had to vote for common sense.

UK ENERGY BILLS TO SOAR

This article explains how gas prices could go up by over 59% in a year. In a recent Financial Mail (not on line) is an article: "Green tax to push fuel bills up £400" It explains "the huge increase is expected to be phased in by 2020" A key driver is the government's decision to accept an EU directive to generate 20% of its energy by 2020 through renewables - wind, wave and water power.

ENOUGH OIL FOR AT LEAST 30 YEARS

This article explains that there is no immediate possibility of the world running out of oil. The present high price would seem to be the result of speculation, rather than lack of material.

URANIUM NOT RUNNING OUT

There are some people who say that nuclear power is not suitable because they claim the world's stocks of uranium will run out shortly. This is nonsense and readers can find plenty of information here.

POWER CUTS HIT THE UK

I don't recall this story making the TV news, but it may be the sign of things to come. If we get a cold winter and we replace reliable coal and gas power with wind it must be very probable.
This article from 2006 lays out the dangers, but the government is governed by EU directives and they are unable to make the decisions that are needed for the people of the UK.

EU CO2 EMISSIONS UP DESPITE CARBON TRADING SCHEME

This article gives the figures which show that the UK is among several major EU nations that have increase CO2 emissions. It just shows that we depend on fossil fuels and reducing emissions will cause great difficulty for all of us.
