OCEAN ACIDIFICATION FEAR EXPOSED

This article shows how coral and CO2 can exist quite happily side by side. So that's another scare we can safely ignore.

THE FORGOTTEN HEAT SOURCE

The following link - http://iceagenow.com/Underwater_volcanoes_Bake_Sediments-Add_to_Warming.htm looks at heat from beneath the earth's crust which the IPCC has chosen to ignore when drawing up a global energy budget. See page 10 of this pdf http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/cas/papers/KiehlTrenbBAMS97.pdf for the diagram.

RELAX, WE'RE NOT DOOMED AFTER ALL

Apocalyptic reports recently in the press have suggested that GW is causing a melting of the permafrost in Siberia leading to vast outgassing of methane causing a runaway warming; however this article may reassure you that there is no need to panic. Just relax and enjoy the festive season.

2011 NOT A WARM YEAR

In fact 2011 is not in the top 10, according to this GWPF report. The warming just isn't happening and the warmists just cannot explain it, except by saying that they never said every year would be warmer than the last one - but they never said we would not see any warming trend for 12 years either.

EU CAR MAKERS FACE AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE

This report explains the system of fines for motor manufacturers if they fail to meet the strict new emission controls on new vehicles. No doubt we will all be paying the extra costs for these unnecessary stringent conditions.

WHAT CONNECTS THE EU AND CLIMATE CHANGE?

This essay shows the connection brilliantly. Two of the most expensive and futile political causes in history debunked.

EPA GIVES AMERICANS AN EXPENSIVE PRESENT

This piece explains how new restrictions on mercury emissions will drive up the price of electricity without actually lowering the level of mercury in the atmosphere. Merry Christmas!

CLIMATE FRAUD REVEALED

This article shows how we are being manipulated and deceived by those who we should be able to trust. As each breach of trust is revealed we become more cynical, until in the end we cannot trust anyone in the media.

THE TROUBLE WITH BIOFUELS BY MATT RIDLEY

This essay by Matt Ridley gives the arguments why biofuels are not the answer to cutting CO2 emissions. As he explains far from solving the perceived problem of global warming they do not do so and actually cause several other problems such as drive up food prices as well as actually increasing CO2 in the short term.

"GREENHOUSE GASES COOL THE EARTH"

That is according to this paper - http://omsriram.com/Greenhouse_Gases_Cool_Earth.pdf which refutes the very basis of greenhouse theory. While I go along with much of what they say, such as that water in the form of clouds can have a cooling effect; I did not see in the paper any mention of the fact that both CO2 and H20 absorb infra-red radiation, which even most sceptic acientists accept does lead to increased heat retention. However this is still an interesting contribution with many truths in it.

MONCKTON TO REPORT CLIMATEGATE SCIENTISTS FOR FRAUD

This article by Christopher Monckton explains his reason for preparing a report for the police based on the revelations in the leaked emails. I doubt whether the police will be keen to act, but on the basis that if you don't ask you don't get, it is surely worth having a go.

THE TRUTH ABOUT ICE SHEETS

This article by Prof Ian Plimer shows that the ice sheets do not conform to any script dreamed up by computer models. The truth is much more complex.

AN EXPERT VIEW OF OUR ENERGY FUTURE

This article on the Royal Academy of Energy website looks at a sensible energy policy, as opposed to the government's obsession with wind farms as the only way forward.

HOW CHINA CONNED THE WEST ON GW

This report highlights the problem of China keeping out of any current emission cuts, while expecting the West to commit to more severe cuts.

This report looks at the reason for the Canadian government's decision and the effect of it on the future agreements.

IPCC SEA LEVEL FORECASTS ARE WAY OUT

The problem with the IPCC forecasting sea level rise is that other organisations, such as those tasked with coastal protection, use these forecasts to make long term plans. We are now finding that these IPCC predictions are proving to be exaggerated. See this article to see how reality trumps computer models yet again.

SO WHAT REALLY HAPPENED IN DURBAN?

This report makes interesting, if rather disturbing, reading. What it says is that there is a lot more going no behind the scenes than is reported in the media, and that governments would like their voters to know. It is also going to cost us all a great deal of money.

NO NEARER TO UNDERSTANDING THE CLIMATE

This report by the Scientific Alliance shows that scientists still disagree about the precise cause of warming, which confirms that no real consensus actually exists.

SCOTTISH CLIMATE POLICIES TO COST £11 BILLION

The cost of Scottish climate policies is set to reach £11 billion according to this report in the Daily Express. No doubt the Scottish people will be grateful to Alex Salmond for his efforts.

HERE'S WHY THE CLIMATE BONDOOGLE WON'T END

This report from the excellent Canadian journalist Donna Laframboise, who I had the pleasure to meet at a one-day conference at Westminster on her recent visit to Britain. She has uncovered the collaboration going on between our climate scientists and our activist organisations and politicians - all in it together.

ARCTIC WAS VIRTUALLY ICE-FREE IN 1922

Here is an interesting article to put before those such as David Attenborough who claim that today's Arctic warming is unprecedented.

BBC BETRAYAL ON CLIMATE - A NEW REPORT

This article in the Daily Mail sets out the evidence, which all those who see the BBC's climate change output are well aware of. It came to a head with the recent showing of the last episode of David Attenborough's accalimed series Frozen Planet. Sadly, those who saw it will have seen a one-sided look at the evidence for a catastrophic warming of the planet with no mention of any evidence that contradicts the so-called 'consensus' narrative. One small example was the melting of sea ice where no reference was made to the fact that this will have no effect on sea level - something that many viewers will be unaware. No mention either of the fact that the Antarctic has been gaining ice in recent years, leaving the total mass of ice on our planet more or less unchanged. No mention of the fact that the Arctic has in the recent past had several periods when it has warmed and lost ice, only to revert to regain it again. I fear Mr Attenborough has bowed to pressure and resorted to propaganda instead of balance. What a shame.

GOVERNMENT PLANS TO BAN PETROL & DIESEL VEHICLES

This article in the Express sets out Mr Huhne's vision, though I note that no date has been given. No doubt it will be way beyond the next election, but the fact that he has mentioned it at all is a warning to us all.

CAUGHT HIDING THE INCONVENIENT TRUTH

This article explains how the NSW authorities decided to pull the plug on the work of their scientists working on sea-level, when the results showed that sea-level was only rising at one tenth of the rate given by the IPCC.

MARKET FUEL PRICES FALL AS FUEL POVERTY GOES UP

This article in the Mail explains that the increasing in fuel bills is driving more and more people into fuel poverty, and yet at the same time the wholesale price of gas is going down to a 12 month low.

ONLY 3% OF CO2 RELEASED INTO THE ATMOSPHERE IS MAN MADE

Many people are unaware of the very small proportion of CO2 emitted by mankind. To prove that this is a well-founded claim here is the proof from none other than the IPCC itself ( I know, they can't be trusted!)but if you are trying to convince a warmist it should be good enough. When you look at the diagram in the link you can add up all the amounts in the 'up' arrows (all amounts are in gigatons), the total is 215. The fact that the UK emits less than 2% of this 3% and you are getting to some pretty small amounts. As Michael Cain might have said "not a lot of people know that."

LORD LAWSON COMMENTS ON DAVID ATTENBOROUGH'S TV PROGRAMME

Lord Lawson has replied to the assertion being made by David Attenborough that human CO2 emissions are causing the Arctic ice to melt. He could have added to his remarks the important point that melting of the Arctic ice is not unusual. See this article for example.
