A LOOK AT WORLD TEMPERATURE STATS

One of the best websites for news of climate change/global warming is Lord Lawson's Global Warming Policy Foundation (link on right hand side). Here they look at the coming 'end of year' temperature average and what it actually means. Devotees of the climate change religion are hoping for a sign that they are right and the world is undergoing 'significant' warming, but it looks more than likely that it will just be another ordinary year.

EMAIL INQUIRY - SLOPPY OR DEVIOUS?

Those dedicated few with the time can watch the latest instalment of the inquiry into the leaked emails via the House of Commons Select Committee. Exciting it is not, but the implications are clear as this report on Climate Audit explains. Either the Inquiries were sloppy, or they were deliberately deceitful. In either case, as Steve McIntyre explains, they must not be allowed to get away with it.

MORE INDUSTRY SET TO QUIT 'GREEN' BRITAIN

This report explains how the government's Carbon Reduction Commitment (which is just a euphemism for a stealth tax on energy) is driving UK businesses abroard. When will this insanity end?

IS THE GREEN REVOLUTION JUST HOT AIR?

This report looks behind the soundbites at the way the cuts are affecting the green economy.

AUSSIES TO CONSIDER CARBON TAX

According to this report in the Economist the Australian Government is considering some form of carbon tax. This is a government propped up by a few independents and one Green MP. Here is an example of how a small minority can exploit a very close election result.

UK BUDGET CUTS - BUT NOT FOR "AID" TO THIRD WORLD

Christopher Booker turns his attention to the UK Budget this week, and reminds us that while we have cuts at home he is increasing spending on overseas aid, including large amounts for schemes to cut carbon emissions, and even some for the Indian space programme. All this when we are up to our necks in debt with the interest alone rising to £190 billion a year.

COMMON SENSE GOES MAINSTREAM!

I have not read any climate sceptic articles by Charles Moore before, but this one puts his views squarely in the sceptic camp. I expect this shift represents the beginning of a trickle in the direction of common sense. Where Charles Moore goes today, many others will follow.

CLIMATE MODEL FLAWS EXPOSED

Here's an excellent article exposing the flaws in climate models, which though acknowldeged by the IPCC, are kept concealed from the public, and, in fact, expose the Summary for Policy-Makers as a deception. I have referred to this before - see here.

BIODIVERSITY, THE NEW SCARE STORY

This article by the redoubtable James Delingpole, throws the spotlight on the new scare story set to replace global warming as the big issue on which the UN wants to extract massive amounts of the West's taxes and hand it over to the third world. Now that the UK government has woken up to the fact that we can no longer afford to allow millions of unemployed people to live comfortably on benefits, you would think they might be more careful to look after our taxes, but don't count on it.

MORE ON ELECTRICITY PRICE RISE

This Telegraph article again warns of the massive price rise coming along for UK energy. The figures seem a little different from the Booker article (see Tuesday's post), though still enough to make us all feel poorer.

BBC TO GIVE 'BALANCE' ON GW

This article explains that the BBC has new guidelines which expect reports on climate change to be more 'balanced' and to let the public know that the science is not 'settled'.

ELECTRICITY COSTS TO MORE THAN DOUBLE

Christopher Booker has done the maths to reveal the true cost of the 'dash for wind' and it is truly astonishing; far worse than the government is prepared to admit. Thr truth will out!

GET YOUR 'HEAT BALLS' (WITH A BIT OF LIGHT)

I just love this story of man's ingenuity at getting round the daft light bulb regulations. With people like him we may yet be saved from the po-faced doom merchants.

CALIFORNIA'S GREEN JOBS NIGHTMARE

This article shows how the green jobs hype in California appears to have been a myth, yet UK politicians use it repeatedly as an advantage of decarbonising our economy. How long before the public rumble them?

DROWNING PUPPIES AD RULED OK

The UK government ad campaign featuring crying bunnies and drowning puppies to illustrate the perils of global warming have been ruled as OK by Ofcom, according to this article. No surprise there! Maybe this will lead to even more ridiculous ads, as long as the wording is couched in 'could' and 'maybe'.

RECENT SCIENCE DEBATE REPORT

This report refers to a recent meeting at which Mike Hulme was questionned about his belief in global warming. It is good to see that some debate is taking place, though not, unfortunately at government level.

YEO COMPARES GW TO NAZIS

This article gives details of the claims made by government minister, Tim Yeo, who likens the war against Nazi Germany to the fight against global warming. Some may think he is a bit over the top, others that he is completely off the wall. I leave you to read it yourself and make up your own mind.

SENIOR PROFESSOR RESIGNS FROM APS

This article looks at the letter of resignation of Professor Hal Lewis from the American Physical Society. His wrods are very apposite and show a great strength of character. I doubt it will lead to an avalanche of similar resignations, but nevertheless it is an important contribution.

NZ CLIMATE SCIENTISTS COOKED THE CLIMATE RECORDS

According to this article the New Zealand government are distancing themselves from their scientists' temperature records. ItAll sounds familiar and reminiscent of the fiddling that has already been revealed in the climategate emails. I wonder why this will not appear on the TV news?

DOES A HOT SUN COOL THE CLIMATE?

This article points to new research which suggests that it may. We still have a lot to learn.

NEW BOOK ON ENERGY AND CLIMATE WARS

Here is a thought provoking resume~ of a new book on why the left is wrong to abandon fossil fuels for wind and solar. A good article.

STATUES TO MILIBANDIUS

The latest from Christopher Booker looks at the political legacy of the new Labour leader, Ed Miliband, and he rightly claims it will be the 700 billion pound cost of the UK Climate Change Act, and the visible evidence of the great wind farms will be the lasting manifestation of our stupidity in believing that we can control the climate. In the coming centuries citizens will visit the great statues to Milibandius, the man who championed the most costly and pointless legislation in the history of the UK.

LATEST 10:10 FILM PARODY

For those following the saga of the 10:10 sadistic mini-movie disaster, Here is a very good parody. I must say, it is rather amusing to see the alarmists in such disarray. How the best laid plans have gone astray!

ROYAL SOCIETY STILL LETS SCIENCE DOWN

This article on WattsUpWithThat looks in detail at the Royal Society's new statement on climate change, and finds it still falls far short of what a major scientific institution should say if it was truly impartial.

UK FOREIGN SECRETARY ON MESSAGE WITH CLIMATE

Leading politicians seem to be consistently talking the talk on global warming as though the science was still settled. There is certainly no desire from any major party in the UK to re-visit the science. Here is UK Foreign Secretary, William Hague trotting out the whole mantra, urging world leaders to greater efforts to 'prevent the worst effects of climate change', as though he is utterly convinced that climate change is preventable. Can he really believe this stuff? Personally, I doubt it.

'GLOBAL COOLING' DISCUSSED BY BILDERBERG GROUP

Here it is on the agenda for discussion - global cooling. These people are normally well-informed, so it seems that at the highest level our leaders are considering the problems of a cooling planet. I wonder if this new concern will be reported in the mainstream media?

HOW ACCURATE ARE COMPUTER CLIMATE MODELS?

No doubt the scientists behind them would rather we did not have the answer, but in fact it is 50 years since the first predictions were made and so there is now hard evidence available as this article shows. On reading the evidence it becomes clear that the predictions have not been fulfilled. It points to the conclusion that it is impossible to predict the climate, which is born out by the accuracy of short-term forecasts, as we all know.

MORE ON THE 10:10 FILM DISASTER

Further to the earlier post and update, here is more coverage on EUReferendum Blog on what is becoming known as "splattergate", the attempt at humour by the 10:10 Campaign Team led by Franny Armstrong. It seems that they have met a storm of protests and even sponsers are now pulling out. It couldn't be much worse for them - what a shame!

IS SHALE GAS THE FUTURE?

This article looks at this new development in gas production that is both cheap and plentiful. It looks impossible to resist in a world where cheap energy is the key to prosperity.

LYING THERMOMETERS 'FIXED'

When thermometer records showed that the 1930's was the hottest decade in the USA during the past century it posed an awkward problem for those who wanted to claim that the planet was getting hotter. However with some sleight of hand more usually seen in the magic circle, the boffins at the US Historic Climate Network (USHCN)have been able to fix those lying thermometers and all is well, as you can read here.

PACHAURI AND THE FIDDLED CHARITY ACCOUNTS

Here Christopher Booker takes the lid off unsavoury goings on with Dr Pachauri, IPCC Chairman, and the UK Charity Commission. It has all the hallmarks of collusion and cover-up. Yet more evidence of corruption in high places to further the cause of alarmist propaganda.

BIN LADIN GOES GREEN!

Yes it's true, the man behind Al Quaeda and numerous terrorist atrocities now claims to want to save the planet, according to this report. While this at first seems ludicrous, on reflection, and in the light yesterday's post there is, perhaps, not such a difference between the two after all.

ECO-JIHAD CLIP SHOWS ALARMIST 'SENSE OF HUMOUR'

They are a funny lot the 'eco-warriors', as this piece on EUReferendum testifies.

Here's another person who found this offensive. It seems as though this video has done their cause more harm than good, even though this Guardian article and this Telegraph piece are supportive. But it takes all sorts, as they say!

UPDATE - Here are the take-offs! And even more here. It seems that this has really touched a nerve, causing a massive backlash. This is the danger with propaganda.

ROYAL SOCIETY ADMITS CLIMATE PREDICTIONS 'UNCERTAIN'

As a result of pressure from its own members the Royal Society has been forced to replace its original highly alarmist climate change rhetoric with something much more circumspect, as this Daily Mail article explains. Another victory for common sense over propaganda. One by one the alarmist propaganda is being unmasked, without much fanfare by the media, admittedly. For those who take an interest it is having an impact,no doubt.
