US CRUSADER AGAINST THE CLIMATE ALARMISTS

This article tells the story of the Virginia Attorney General and his battle to get at the truth of research by Professor Michael Mann of the hockey-stick notoriety. He may pay a heavy price for his efforts, but at least he has put his job on the line to try and uncover the truth.

THE GOVERNMENT'S GREAT GREEN CON TRICK

This article in today's Daily Mail is interesting for the language that is used, as much as the content. It tells us that it is now mainstream to criticise the government's policy on global warming. This has been going on for some timem but it is gaining momentum. How much longer before we get open criticism on television, and by politicians who are ahead of the game. When the power cuts begin, those who have supported this will be as popular as the tyrants in north Africa!

GW GOOD FOR CORALS SAYS NEW RESEARCH

Alarmists don't want us to hear any research that says that there are benefits of a slight warming of the planet, but here is an example of one benefit. When the IPCC only publishes the negative stories it reinforces the point that there is an agenda rather than honest disclosure of the facts.

US GOVERNMENT VOTES NOT TO FUND THE IPCC

Here's the story via an alarmist blog. You can see from their anger that this is hurting them. My fear is that the UK might be daft enough to make up the shortfall. Either that or the EU, who in turn will send the begging bowl round to us anyway. If the USA are not playing the game then we might as well all pack up now since none of the objectives in terms of CO2 reductions can be met. All we will be doing is posturing, convincing ourselves how virtuous we are, while levels of CO2 just go on rising. How pathetic is that?

CLIMATE PROPAGANDA WAR HOTS UP

This post on WUWT gives us details of a new well-funded website set up specifically to counter any climate stories that contradict the "consensus". The age of Big Brother is well and truly upon us. In spite of all this propaganda many of the public remain sceptical.

TV PRESENTER'S CAREER RUINED BY SMEARS FROM ALARMISTS

NEW ATTEMPT TO MEASURE EARTH'S TEMPERATURE

This article gives the details of a new group that are attempting to obtain an average surface temperature of the Earth. With all the attempts to manipulate the data it would be good to see a new transparent data series, but I remain sceptical whether anyone will produce such a result.

UK SHALE GAS GETS GO AHEAD

This article gives the details of how shale gas is to be extracted in the UK. It appears that the UK could be self sufficient in natural gas again once the new technology is in place.

THE COST OF WIND TURBINES

There is a lot on this blog about the cost of wind turbines, but this article brings it down to a scale of one turbine, which is a figure that is more understandable. On every scale they are uneconomic. This has also reached the Daily Mail.

SHALE GAS WILL CHANGE THE WORLD

This article shows the massive impact that the new technique of extracting natural gas from shale rock will have. It promises to end the dependance of the West on Russian gas and Middle Eastern oil within a few years. It must surely also mean the end of any hope of a reduction in carbon emissions.

FUEL BILLS TO FALL £1,000 BY 2020 SAYS DAVID CAMERON

This article is the evidence that he really did say that, and it is not April 1st! There is no mention in the article of by what yardstick this drop is compared. It maybe that prices will reach such a peak by 2019 that he could be proved right - who knows. Of course it's more than likely he won't be in office to take the blame.

UK PARLIAMENT ACCEPT FLAWED INQUIRIES

This article explains how the UK Science Select Committee over-ruled the one member with a scientific background and decided to accept the whitewash of the inquiries, rather than pursue a more rigorous approach. Our feeble MPs toe the line.

ARE FOOD PRICES THE CAUSE OF THE RIOTS IN NORTH AFRICA?

This article by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard seems to suggest so, in which case the argument for ditching the "climate change agenda" is getting rather urgent. There seems little point in indulging in vain attempts to save the planet in 100 years if we have to endure mass hunger through high food prices today.

THE TRUE PRICE OF UK ENERGY

Here is an excellent article from the Mail on Sunday which looks into how the rare earth metals are produced in China to make the magnets for our wind turbines. It also includes up to date figures on the quantity of electricity being produced from wind turbines and at what cost. Very thought provoking.
