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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
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!)

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This article in the Wall Street Journal has the details. Not only is the economy stalling, but GW has also stalled. A double whammy for the alarmist brigade.

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.
