BLOW TO CARBON TRADING AS ISLINGTON GROUP PACKS UP

This article brings the sad news that a small, but dedicated band of planet-saving eco-warriors has decided, after almost four years, that their Carbon Rationing Action Group is not worth continuing. How, you may ask, is the planet to survive? That is something we can only ponder for the time being. At least these dedicated souls did not try to rip the rest of us off unlike this lot.

MET OFFICE LIES NAILED

This post goes through the evidence that exposes the attempt by the UK Met Office to try to hide their lack of forecasting ability. As usual the cover up is worse than the original failure.

CELEBRITY HYPOCRITES

This website by Phelim McAleer exposes the hypocrisy and double standards of some of the high profile celebrities who support green causes while carrying on their high spending high carbon lifestyles.

NEW STUDY - HIMALAYAN GLACIERS NOT MELTING DUE TO GW

After all the predictions in the 2007 IPCC report about how Himalayan glaciers were melting away due to global warming, we now have a report of this study which claims that there is no evidence that the melting is due to global warming at all. Who says the science is settled?

"CLIMATEGATE INQUIRIES NOT SATISFACTORY" SAY MP's

This piece in the Telegraph gives the details. At last some bite from our representatives in parliament on this important issue. Now let's see if they can get a new inquiry with some teeth!

BBC ARE GW PROPAGANDISTS SAYS NEWSREADER, PETER SISSONS

This article is an exerpt from a book by retired newsreader, Peter Sissons. In it he looks at the many instances he has been involved in, in which the bias of the BBC towards the alarmist CO2 hypothesis on global warming was all too evident.

An example of this was seen on Monday evening's Horizon programme on BBC2, in which the new President of the Royal Society gave a one-sided view of why scientists are not trusted (mainly on global warming!) - blaming it on the bloggers and the media for stirring up undeserved bad publicity.

CLIMATE SCIENCE IN A NUTSHELL

Here is an excellent look at all the many factors which affect climate put in an easy to read style. The article is on WUWT, which is required reading for anyone interested in the subject of global warming.

MASSIVE FRAUD IN EU CARBON TRADING SCHEME

"No surprise there", I hear you say.

It has been reported on euractiv.com that up to two million permits have gone missing and been sold on the spot market: Great carbon theft may have netted 14m of permits. This is not the first such problem, but it is the biggest so far. It was caused apparently by phishing scams which have gathered passwords necessary to trade the permits. The seriousness of it has prompted the shutdown of the national carbon registries and hence the ETS itself.

In the same item, it was reported that "Trevor Sikorski, director of carbon markets and environmental products research at Barclays Capital, predicted that the closure could cost carbon traders around 70m per week." To put it another way, a scheme which seems both ineffective and vulnerable to serious fraud is providing profits to traders of 3.5bn a year. All of this, ultimately, is a cost paid by consumers and taxpayers.

BY THEIR WORDS SHALL WE JUDGE THEM

Here is another excellent post from the new website Haunting the Library. As more time passes we will find ever more strident claims from prominent climate scientists will come back to haunt them. As the public learn of more and more failed predictions their confidence in the global warming scare will begin to evaporate. The enormous sums of money being set aside to deal with this non-existent problem will then be under close scrutiny, particularly as prices of fuel and energy are driven up and up.

WARMISTS TRY TO CHANGE THE RULES OF SCIENCE

Warmists try to change the rules so that the hypothesis of CO2 causing global warming must be held to be true until it has been completely falsified.

HANSEN CHOOSES MARXIST DICTATORSHIP OVER DEMOCRACY

Climate scientist and alarmist, James Hansen has stated that to 'solve' the global warming 'problem' we would be better off if democratic governments were replaced by Marxist dictatorships (so long as they support his views, of course!) That is the view of anyone who believes he is right and any other opinion does not count.

SIGN UP TO SUPPORT SCRAPPING THE CLIMATE CHANGE ACT

Here is the link to a really worthwhile project - to gather support to scrap the ruinous UK Climate Change Act which is costing us over £18 billion pounds every year for the next 40 years in order to achieve - precisely nothing worthwhile! Please spread the word.

USA COOLING TREND CONTINUES

This report shows that temperature figures for the USA show a definite cooling trend.

EXAM BOARD'S BAD SCIENCE QUESTION

One UK exam board has used inaccurate graphs to make it appear that global warming is much bigger than is the case, according to this article. How can students learn if they are faced with propaganda in the exam room?

QUEENSLAND FLOODS - LESSONS NOT LEARNT

This post by a Queensland resident looks at how climate scientists have allowed their belief in global warming theory to affect their judgement about natural cycles. Those that don'r learn the lessons of history are bound to repeat them. Sadly it is the people who pay for the mistakes.

THE CLIMATE BATTLES IN THE USA

There are huge political and legal battles going on in the USA over the right to control CO2 emissions. Nowhere is the battle more keenly fought than in Texas where thousands of jobs will be at stake if the Federal government wins the battle via the EPA (Environment Protection Agency)to control the emissions of CO2.

WIND TURBINE FIRM GETS WINDING UP ORDER

Another one bites the dust. This article refers to another wind turbine firm going to the wall. The idea that wind can play any more than a minor role in our energy mix seems more apparent with each revelation. Surely the government will soon come to the same conclusion?

ALARMIST ARGUMENTS DEMOLISHED

Here is a good point by point demolition of the sort of arguments put forward by climate alarmists.

WIND POWER LEAVES A BIG GAP IN OUR ENERGY SUPPLY

This article explains the major flaw in relying on wind turbines - they don't work when there's no wind, which often happens in very cold weather. Could someone mention this to the government?

SO WHAT ARE OUR "PARTNERS" IN THE EU DOING TO FIGHT GW?

While the UK forges ahead with its Climate Change Act and phasing out of the use of fossil fuels to save CO2, what are our partners in the EU up to? This article gives us a clue (though I haven't seen or heard much about it in the UK media - have you?). Basically it would appear that we are continuing to subsidise their new coal-fired power stations - well I never!

THE END OF DEMOCRACY?

Here's an article reviewing a book by a university professor who is a part of the IPCC. The review looks at how the author sees that democracy must be replaced by an all-powerful world government in order to force us all to change our way of life. It's a chilling reminder of what could happen.

QUESTIONS FOR THE MET OFFICE

This article from the Global Warming Policy Foundation looks at the increasingly odd behaviour of the Met Office, resulting in them sending a letter to parliament asking them to answer a number of questions to get to the bottom of what's been going on. One theory being looked at is - did the Met Office deliberately keep their fears about severe weather suppressed because they feared it would undermine their message about global warming at the Cancun climate conference?

OCEAN PLASTIC CONTENT MUCH LESS THAN CLAIMED

Environmentalists have been caught out again. This time vastly exaggerating the amount of plastic in the Pacific Ocean.

WARMISTS STILL TRYING TO PUSH FOR CARBON TRADING

Here's a good article by Bob Carter on the way that EU and Australian ministers are trying to introduce some form of carbon trading despite the very good reasons why they shouldn't.

WHO SAYS CRIME DOESN'T PAY?

Those following the case of the protestors who planned to shut down a UK coal-fired power station may be angry to learn of The pathetic punishments given out by the judge when they were sentenced yesterday. It was almost pointless taking them to court and wasting £400,000 of taxpayers money. No wonder these nutcases don't fear the law. There is simply nothing to fear. No doubt we can now look forward to much more disruption from these people.

WIND TURBINES FOUND TO BE LESS EFFICIENT

New research has shown that wind turbines are around 25% less efficient than claimed by the industry itself according to this Telegraph report. Is it time for the government to look again at its policy of relying on this form of energy? We are probably more likely to see pigs flying into the rotor blades methinks.

UK GOVERNMENT TO LET DEEP WATER DRILLING CONTINUE

At last some common sense on energy from the government. Despite the opposition from the environmental lobby the decision was clearly right for the UK. If the EU try to block it we shall have some very interesting times ahead.

HOW THORIUM COULD PROVIDE ABUNDANT CHEAP ENERGY

Here's a very interesting article by David Archibald on how the USA could be self-sufficient in energy by 2020. The same argument could apply to the UK. Where are the politicians with the common sense to rescue our nations?

THE FOLLY OF TOKENISM IN GW

This article reveals the complete nonsense of on the one hand banning coal-fired power stations while at the same time exporting the very same coal to China where they use it to power their power stations. It is Alice in Wonderland madness without a doubt.
