GLOBAL WARMING DISPROVED

This article looks at some data that appears to disprove the current climate change hypothesis. It sounds very interesting, but you will not have seen it on the mainsteam media.

ADMISSION OF FAILURE WOULD BE HONEST

This report into the Large Hadron Collider's attempt to find the vital Higgs Bosun particle suggests that failure would be a disaster in PR terms. I can see that spending billions of pounds of public money to find nothing might irritate taxpayers, but at least an admission of failure, if that is what happens, would be honest. Much better to have that than to copy the CRU scientists approach. Now that would be a disaster.

CLIMATEGATE TIMELINE

Here are the details of the climategate emails set out in an organised way so the reader can appreciate the progress of events over the past 30 years.

ANOTHER SCARE STORY

This scare story makes an amusing diversion from the seasonal festivities. Who comes up with such extraordinary calculations as that plants and animals have to travel half a mile a year to 'escape' from climate change. I have this image of hoards of insects all marching north to find a new climate. Ho ho ho! Perhaps we should try to find the twelve climate scares and write a song about them.

PACHAURI IN CASH FOR CLIMATE ROW

Christopher Booker gives us more of the IPCC chairman's financial web in this week's Telegraph.

GLOBAL WARMING BY NUMBERS

This article gives an explanation of what's been going on to "sex up" the data in order to drive the politics.

Here's another summary of the mounting evidence of data fiddling.

BROWN'S CLIMATE POLICY TO COST UK 500 BILLION POUNDS

This article lists the costs of Gordon Brown's generosity with the money of his voters. If Brown's successor was to stick to his promise then our standard of living looks set to fall. However I cannot see this happening, so I expect the country will fail to keep to this unachievable goal.

A HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO SCEPTICS EVERYWHERE

Here is something to lift the spirits of sceptics everywhere, brought to you by those wonderful Minnesotans. Enjoy!

HIMALAYAN GLACIERS, THE TRUE PICTURE

This report looks at yet another area of disagreement. We have been told on television news that Himalayan glaciers are melting at an unprecedented rate due to global warming, yet the Indian Government commisioned a report by scientists which said that this was not the case. The report was heavily criticised by the IPCC chairman, Rajenda Pachauri. The linked report explains his conflict of interest. It does not inspire confidence in the IPCC.

CRU RELEASE MORE DATA & CODE

This report on 'Watts up with That' blog explains. It is still not all the data, but with code it could still be useful. Gradually they are being forced into transparency.

THE REAL ECONOMIC BATTLE BEHIND GW

This piece written a few days ago on EUReferendum Blog sums up the situation we are really faced with very neatly. The 'climate change debate' is really a smokescreen being used to conceal a much deeper underlying purpose which is to force the 'white man' to pay up to the poorer 'non-white' nations. At least that is the real aim of the 'non-white' nations. Richard North has summed it up very well and you should read his words. Even if the science is found to be nonsense, the whole thing will not go away as long as we in the 'white' world have weak and divided leaders aided and abetted by compliant scientists.

JOHNNY BALL IS A SCEPTIC

Johnny Ball, who presented science and maths programmes to children for many years has written this piece in the Daily Express. Johnny was always a popular and likeable presenter who has absolutely no reason to speak out, other than to tell the truth as he believes it. How long can the manmade theory withstand the onslaught?

PROPAGANDA FOR POLITICIANS

This video was shown to delegates to the Copenhagen Climate Conference. There can be no other word for this than propaganda aimed at politicians. But who is producing this and deciding that this is right, if not the politicians themselves? Politicians trying to brainwash themselves. We are in a mad world.

SET OF VIDEOS ON CLIMATEGATE ETC

Here's some great footage from Fox News on the climategate issue. It includes interviews with McIntyre and McKittrick, and features damaging emails from those leaked out of the UK Climate Research Unit. Well worth viewing.

LIES AND DECEPTION AT HEART OF IPCC

Here's an eye-opening report by courageous blogger, Richard North, on his EUReferendum blog. I love his style.

More of the same in This Sunday Telegraph report. It seems that the IPCC chairman has alot of explaining to do.

RUSSIAN CLIMATE DATA IS IGNORED BY CRU

This article from Climate Audit Blog reveals rhat the Climate Research Unit at the Uk's Hadley Centre has ignored the majority of Russian Temperature measurements, using only 40% of those available. Siberia is a place where global warming is said by the alarmists to be warming more than most, so it does seem strange to say the least, that they are using only a small precentage of sites and presumably 'interpolating' the figures for the areas that are missing. There could be an innocent explanation for this. If so, let's hear it.

THE REAL MEANING OF 'HIDE THE DECLINE'

This article from the Mail is very interesting, but the best part is where it de-bunks the 'Hockey Stick' graph by showing how the use of tree-ring data as a proxy for temperature gives a completely ridiculous result, which was hidden by a 'trick' which the ordinary citizen would regard as completely dishonest.

COPENHAGEN - BROWN LOOKS AT PLAN B

Brown's plan B wants to make an agreement excluding China. How on Earth can you get a meaningful agreement excluding the world's biggest emitter of CO2. This is a farce and everyone will see it as such.

Here's an interesting post which looks at how the money is being used against the West in a most unfair way. We would be crackers to agree to this nonsense.

HERE'S WHY COPENHAGEN IS AN IRRELEVANCE

This article explains the numbers which show that no matter what is agreed in Copenhagen, emissions of CO2 will go on increasing, because the developing nations will more than make up for any cuts made by the developed nations. All the pain felt by the West, all the wealth tranfer made to the rest of the world will not prevent the very thing that Al Gore and James Hansen et al claim will lead to irreversible catastrophic warming. How ironic.

COPENHAGEN - AN OVERVIEW

This National Review article sums up the negotiations so far ver nicely.

PR AND FEARMONGERING

Here is an excellent take on the Copenhagen beanfest from the Times Higher Education Supplement. Well worth a read.

WHAT IS SURFACE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE?

Here is an interesting look at what is actually meant by the term Surface Average Temperature. It is a tricky thing to define as the link shows. As this is the fundamental measurement that the whole global warming debate is about it is important to understand it - or at least to understand just how difficult it is to define or measure accurately. At present it would be fair to say that the inaccuracy in measuring it is almost as great as the total amount of warming over the twentieth century. That is a sobering point in such a heated subject.

MASSIVE EU CARBON TRADING FRAUD UNCOVERED

Here already the massive fraud which was widely predicted to follow the introduction of CO2 emission trading schemes.

Not only are such schemes costing us all a great deal of money, but they also don't deliver the massive CO2 reduction that climate alarmists are calling for. They are simply a lose, lose option. The alternative, which is a carbon tax, is off the agenda because it would link the governments to the cost.

THE CRACKS ARE SHOWING

This post on EUReferendum Blog highlights the wind of change that is blowing through the Global Warming debate. I find particularly ironic the bit about thousands of people from NGO's standing outside the conference for eight hours in freezing conditions, only to be told that they were permanently banned from it. Talk about being tortured for your beliefs! And then to learn that the UN had issued 45 thousand passes for a hall with a capacity for 15 thousand - it beggars belief!

"2010 THE HOTTEST EVER" - MET OFFICE

The UK Met Office has stuck its neck out with this prediction, based on El Nino conditions in the Pacific. Only time will tell if they get it right, but it must be a brave effort.

FIDDLING THE DATA, BIG TIME

This report looks at one set of data for Darwin, Australia. By looking at how this data has been 'adjusted' the author reveals a great deal about the kind of fiddles that may have been going on elsewhere. I'm sure that once all the raw data is put out in the open there will be many experts pouring over it and it will be interesting to see if they turn up many more blatant attempts to produce 'warming' by 'adjustment'.

Here's another data set this one for Nashville, Tennessee. Once again the article from Watts Up With That illustrates the way the raw data has been adjusted for no obvious reason, other than to show a clear warming trend.

And Orland also shows the 'adjustment' effect.

HADLEY CRU RELEASE MORE DATA, BUT.......

This article explains the spin and double talk of the Hadley Climate Centre's claim to have released data - yes they have released some more data, but it is not in its original state, but has been subjected to certain 'enhancement'. They can't go on pulling that 'trick' anymore - they have been rumbled!

ITS THE MATHS STUPID!

With all the furore over the climategate emails, it's easy to overlook the simple truth which is that the maths of climate is impossible to solve. This article by a mathematician puts its effectively but simply, and yet the pretence goes on that we not only understand but have solved the mysteries of forecasting and controlling our climate. What utter folly and misplaced hubris.

WHEN WILL THE WEST WAKE UP?

Christopher Booker has once again highlighted a scandal. This time it's that job losses are directly a result of our so-called climate change policy (aided and abetted by the EU). How many job losses like those in Redcar will we put up with before the public start to protest? Maybe when job losses are combined with power cuts and further massive electricity price hikes we will become a little angry?

UK ENERGY PRICES DOUBLE IN A DECADE

This report gives the details. Not only have prices for gas and electricity more than doubled for consumers, but even though wholesale energy prices have fallen by more than 50% this year those falls have not been passed on to the public. What the report does not mention is that a considerable part of the increase is due to the rush to build uneconomic wind turbines to reduce CO2 emissions.

'SCEPTICS ARE MUDDLED' SAYS STERN

In this report Lord Stern claims that climate sceptics are muddled. Perhaps he needs to get his own facts straight - yes there is evidence of climate change. No one doubts that the climate is changing and will continue to do so.

But this does not mean that CO2 increases are responsible, and neither Lord Stern, or anyone else has yet produced any convincing evidence that it is. It is not up to me or any other sceptice to provide an alternative hypothesis.

It is for those who support the CO2 hypothesis to provide the clear evidence - and put all their data in the public domain so it can be checked. I hope this is clear to Lord Stern and all the other alarmists.

US NEWS BULLETIN ON CLIMATEGATE

Compare this news bulletin from the USA with the coverage from the BBC and ITV in the UK and you can understand why their politicians are much bolder in challenging the so-called 'consensus' view than those in the UK, where much deference is given to alarmists.

THE TRUTH HIDDEN IN THE LEAKED DATA

Here is aforensic look at the leaked data which goes far beyond emails, and shows a complete disregard for the truth and a cynical manipulation in order to obtain the result they were looking for. No amount of whitewash can cover the extent of the fiddling that has been revealed. It is nothing short of a breathtaking scandal which does to science what the expenses scandal has done for UK politics. But this can only get the impact it deserves if a supine media gives it the coverage needed. The problem is that only statistics experts can understand the extent of the scandal and it may be covered up by those who believe (wrongly) that they are doing so in order to 'save the planet'.

More on the computer code reveals further examples.

THE GREAT GW CON TRICKS

This piece by Dominic Lawson explains the double-talk and hypocrisy which are all part of the global warming circus currently in Copenhagen. The article is very revealing and shows a shocking, scandalous situation which should be much more widely known.

US TO REGULATE CO2 AS A "POLLUTANT"

This article explains how a US agency on environment matters has decided that CO2 is a 'pollutant' which must be subject to control. Yet another crazy twist in the 'climate saga' which is being played out on the world stage. What this means in practice we have to wait and see, but it will mean masses of regulation. But before that there will be legal challenges to keep the courts busy.

REPORT SHOWS DECLINE IN SEA LEVELS

Here's an interesting report which refers to a study carried out this year into sea levels all over the world. What's interesting is that thi study shows that sea levels have actually declined over the least three years, in marked contrast to the ever more doom-laden predictions from the 'alarmist' camp. These figures at least cast doubt on the situation, if they are not enought to completely refute the alarmists.

BOOKER - THE MOST INFLUENTIAL TREE IN THE WORLD

This chilling tale from Christopher Booker outlines the extraordinary lengths that climate scientists at CRU went to to obtain the results they wanted. It will be fascinating to see what the inquiry makes of all this when it reports.

INCOMPETENCE OR WHAT?

This article seems an astonishing gaff, given the recent email fiasco, but the fact that it is by the BBC is all the more remarkable. All this week ITV news have been reporting from the Himalayas about the impending demise of the glaciers there. Obviously the Himalayas were singled out as a result of the report referred to in the BBC article. Was it just incompetence or was there some other underlying motive.

WIND FARMS DON'T SAVE ANY EMISSIONS OF CO2

This excellent piece by Charles Moore gets right to the point - wind is not reliable or cheap. Politicians please note.

MET OFFICE TO RE-EXAMINE 160 YEARS OF DATA

This times report gives the details. Apparently the government are trying to stop them. When will they ever learn to stop spinning and covering things up?

Watch last night's Newsnight Programme on the BBC - This clip, courtesy of EUReferendum Blog which shows a rather bad-tempered Prof Watson rattled by his US opponent, Marc Morano. His final remark, when he may have thought his mic. was off is particularly petulant!

PERSONALCARBON RATIONING THE NEXT STEP?

This article unveils the evidence that individual rationing of carbon is indeed being given serious thought among those in influential places in government and elsewhere. Rather like the EU, the way this is being carried out is by stealth, in such a way that the people will hardly notice what is happening until it is too late - at least that is what they are hoping.

FOI REQUEST EMAIL TRAIL

Here is a revealing series of emails from the Climate Audit website of Steve McIntire. It very clearly shows the obstruction of the Head of CRU to any disclosure of the data he holds in relation to the world temperature series.

This is summarised here.

AUSSIES DUMP EMISSION TRADING POLICY

Politics in Australia has just got interesting with the opposition Liberal Party changing their leader to someone more sceptical of the global warming hysteria. The Senate just voted out the Emission Trading Scheme. Is this the beginning of a re-think on the climate issue?

BRITISH MUSEUM POLL RESULT - COUNT US OUT!

The final result can be found here. The UK public have given hteir verdict - count us out of any costly bureaucratic climate change treaty. Are the politiciams listening?

MASSIVE CO2 FRAUD UNCOVERED IN EU

Emissions trading has hardly started and yet already we have massive fraud being uncovered in the EU. See this report for the details. Another example of how citizens will be ripped off by these complex and bureaucratic schemes.

HIDE THE DECLINE

MORE DATA FIDDLING CLAIMS

This pdf tells the story of how a temperature record in New Zealand showing no trend has been turned into one which shows a distinct warming trend. What makes this seem fishy is that the scientists behind it are not prepared to give a full explanation. Where silence and secrecy prevail people will draw their own conclusions.

A similar piece of chicanery appears to have been done to the Australian temperature record. See here for the details.

This piece on EUReferendum explains the thought process of this close knit group and why they had to appear to reach the same result and 'hide the decline'.
