AUSSIE COAL INDUSTRY FACES GW TAX

This report explains how the Australian coal industry is facing serious financial penalties as a result of the government's CO2 emissions reduction measures. Just as in the USA, the home industry is faced with penalties that similar industries in developing countries will not face. Those who lose their jobs will not find this a reasonable action by their own leaders.

UN CLIMATE PLAN - A GIANT WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION SCHEME

This article explains how a draft copy of a UN plan reveals the massive extent of wealth redistribution contained within it. This is the hidden agenda that is at the heart of the global warming agenda being driven by top UN officials. The extreme environmentalists are being hi-jacked to carry forward the drive towards an eventual world government.

The extraordinary thing is that Western governments are going along with it, apparently oblivious to the trap they are sleep-walking into. Luckily the economic downturn is going to save them from themselves in the short term, but it is to be hoped that the weather itself will show beyond doubt that it does not conform to the script written by the alarmists.

UK COURT RULES ENVIRONMENTALISM IS A "RELIGION"

This Telegraph report explains how an employee has won the right to sue his employer for unfair dismissal on the grounds that his "belief" in environmentalism was not being taken sufficient account of. So there we have it - a new religion!

CATASTROPHIC SEA LEVEL RISE - A LIE

This report by Christopher Booker explains how the climate alarmists have consistently tried to strike fear into the population by exaggerating the rise in sea levels. This article exposes this as simple alarmism.

OPPOSING WIND FARMS IS "SOCIALLY UNACCEPTABLE"

So says the UK climate change minister, Ed Miliband. Read the article from the Telegraph here.

WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IN A 3 MINUTE SPEECH?

Although this has nothing to do with climate, except that sitting next to the speaker is Roger Helmer, who takes a robust view on climate matters; but this 3 minute speech was so beautifully delivered by MEP Dan Hannan that I thought it deserved a wide audience. As 1.2 million people have already viewed it, I thought readers might like to join them. I know Dan personally, and he works so hard, speaking to audiences from 30 upwards in local halls all over the country.

CO2 RISE DUE TO THE OCEANS - NEW PAPER

This new paper suggests that the increase in atmospheric CO2 may be caused by the ocean currents rather than simply emissions from burning fossil fuels. The science in this paper is very interesting and deserves consideration.

CATASTROPHE FROM THE SUN

This article from the New Scientist explains the possibility of a catastrophic effect due to an ejection event from the Sun. Of course it receives little publicity as there is no way we can be blamed for it and so it is of no political use.

EU MAKES A GRAB TO CONTROL WORLD SCIENCE

This article explains and links to the report. It seems to me this is a grab too far, but it shows the grand intentions of this supra-national body to try to control our lives.

GREENS DESTROY BLUE-COLLAR JOBS IN US

This article explains how an elite group of environmentalists are undermining the blue collar jobs in California by putting the needs of nature above those of humans, thus exacerbating the shortage problems that already exist.

AUSSIE GOVERNMENT REBELS OVER EMISSION CUTS BILL

It's not only the US that is having second thoughts over emission reduction bills. This article also indicates the same thing in Australia.

US DEMOCRATS TO VOTE AGAINST EMISSIONS SCHEME

Here is the article which explains how Obama is likely to be thwarted in his attempt to bring in a bill to cut CO2 emissions. It will load extra costs on industry and even his own senators know it will prove unpopular in the time of recession.

ALARMISTS IGNORE THE INCONVENIENT FACTS

This article highlights the one-sided reporting of our weather, seeming to deliberately focus on events that support their cause and to play down or ignore the things that don't.

REPORTS FROM THE RECENT CLIMATE REALIST CONFERENCE

Since the mainstream media are not prepared to report on the latest climate conference held in New York, I hope readers will take this opportunity to catch up on the many presentations HERE.

TAXES MUST RISE TO PAY FOR LOW CARBON

A parliamentary committee has issued this warning. See HERE for the report in the Telegraph. Despite all the hype, I expect these alarmists will end up disappointed as the government is more interested in getting re-elected than pretending to save the planet.

CLIMATE DRIVEN BY OCEAN CURRENTS - NEW PAPER

Dr. William Gray's new paper can be found here. His argument that the ocean currents drive our climate deserves serious consideration. It won't, though, as long as politicians refuse to open their minds to look at all the science.

AUSSIE TV FAILS TO DELIVER FULL FACTS ON ETS

This article in the Australian suggests that the ABC, like the BBC in the UK does not deliver a balanced programme when dealing with global warming issues. By error and omission it becomes part of the propaganda in favour of the man-made global warming argument. In doing so it fails in its duty to the people it is supposed to serve.

NEW PAPER - OCEANS COOLING NOT WARMING

Here is a new scientific paper asserting that the oceans are cooling, not warming, in recent years. This seems to contradict the recent pronouncement from a conference in Copenhagen to say that they expect sea levels to increase faster. When scientists disagree over the facts there is only confusion.

GLOBAL WARMING DENIAL A "MENTAL DISORDER"

According to this article by Christopher Booker extreme climate alarmists believe that denying that we are facing a global warming catastrophe is a kind of mental disorder. I would call it an acceptance of the facts. I hope the men in white coats don't take me away!

ALARMISTS LOSE CLIMATE DEBATE

This article on Ice Cap(scroll down page) explains the details. It seems to be quite common for debates to go this way. When the facts are put before an audience they realise just how thin the argument in favour of humans controlling the climate really are.

A new book is being launched tomorrow 12th March in Washington. It covers the aspects of global warming that the alarmists don't want you to know!

REALISTS CLIMATE CONFERENCE UPDATE

In New York there is a climate conference with a difference currently going on. The difference is that at this conference other opinions backed up by the latest research about causes of climate change are allowed to be heard. To read about the conference follow this link. If the media reported the facts in a more open way there would be a more informed debate. Have you heard any reports on the conference in the TV news?

For more on the conference visit Jennifer Marohasy's blog.

AUSSIE GOVERNMENT BACK-PEDALLING ON EMISSIONS LAW

This report in the Australian explains how the recession is atarting to hurt down under. This is causing the Rudd government to think again about bringing in, unilaterally, a scheme to coerce business into cutting CO2 emissions with financial penalties. Also see this article in the Sydney Herald, and this one from the Canberra Times. It looks as though the financial climate has forced a dramatic re-think, thank goodness.

EU - NO AGREEMENT TO FUND CLIMATE CHANGE IN DEVELOPING NATIONS

EU ministers agreed that it would cost 170 billion a year to fight climate change in developing countries by 2020, but could not come up with the money (thank goodness!) according to this report. They are usually only too keen to pour our cash into a bottomless pit, so I wonder what stopped them - perhaps it was because they thought this was reckless even for them, and in the current recession it might make them a tad unpopular with the public.

US GW PROTEST AFFECTED BY SNOW STORM

It is a little ironic that a major protest against CO2 emissions from power stations is being affected by unseasonally cold weather according to this report. The report goes on to list a number of other similar events where the cold weather has been in attendance. Of course we know that weather can change, but after a decade without warming the irony still seems to be lost on the alarmists.

GW TO GO INTO HIBERNATION FOR 30 YEARS SAYS NEW STUDY

Poor old global warming isn't powerful enough to cope with the current climate, so, according to this study we may not see it for the next 30 years. But like an old Arnold Schwarzenegger character - it'll be back! What a cunning wheeze - so even if the planet cools for the next 30 years, we must still carry on spending trillions of dollars reducing CO2 emissions, otherwise nasty old GW will return and get us. If we believe that, we'll believe anything.

EU SAYS INDIA & CHINA TO GET NO MORE "FREE LUNCHES" ON GW

Here is the report which indicates that finally the EU are waking up to the fact that India and China have no intention of doing anything to seriusly cut their CO2 emissions, though they are more than happy to go on accepting cash handouts. Mind you the EU are much better at talking than taking real action, so we will have to wait and see.

US CLIMATE POLICY MAY LEAD TO TRADE WAR

This report explains the possible consequences of Obama imposing stricter controls on manufacturing in the USA, putting them at a competitive disadvantage to imported goods from nations such as China and India. Without import taxes the USA will undoubtedly lose jobs and income.
