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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

This article explains how the rhetoric has changed since Obama entered the White House.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
