NGO CONSPIRACY LAID BARE

This report gives the details of the inter-linking of the many green charities and arms of government. It really is a tangled web. One that's practically impossible to unravel.

SCHOOL DIRECTOR CALLS TEXTBOOK CLIMATE CHAPTER "PROPAGANDA"

gives the details. He may not have been able to persuade his colleagues to support his view, but he deserves credit for speaking out against the tide of propaganda that is sweeping our schools.

MET OFFICE CLIMATE FORECAST A LAUGHING STOCK

This report looks at the forecast made by the Met Office for global temperature rise by 2014 from 2004, and finds that, surprise, surprise, it is  a long way out.

OFFICIAL LIES AND STATISTICS

This piece looks at the way official climate statistics are being misused to create a false picture of what is happening. They are still trying to pretend that temperatures are rising when they are not.

DATA TAMPERING COOLS THE PAST

This article by Christopher Booker looks at the evidence that a major organisation that stores climate temperature data is replacing the temperature record with computer generated versions of the past which are "cooling the past" which in turn makes the present appear warmer.

IPCC SAY THAT CO2 IS NOT LIKELY TO CAUSE CATASTROPHE

Yes, that headline is not a typo - that is according to This article by Matt Ridley. He has read all the detail in the IPCC reports that most of us do not have the time, inclination, or the knowledge to do, and he has discovered that they do not actually say that we are going to get the much trumpeted catastrophe. He then looks at the massive cost of what is being done and concludes it is not worth it. Now to get the Western governments to change course!

FISH STOCKS INCREASE WHEN IRON IS ADDED TO THE OCEAN TO MOP UP CO2

Here is the gist of it:
120 tons of iron sulphate is added to the ocean to increase plankton which mops up CO2, which boosted fish catch by over 100,000 tons – We get a lot of fish and solve the so-called CO2 climate problem
About 20 months ago, an American businessman conducted a massive ocean fertilisation test, dumping around 100 tonnes of iron sulphate off Canada’s coast, it has emerged the Canadian government may have known about the geo-engineering scheme and not stopped it. Satellite images confirmed the claim by Californian Russ George that the iron has spawned an artificial plankton bloom as large as 10,000 square kilometres. Now it appears that the fish catch in the area was boosted by over 100,000 tons.

CLIMATE IN THE ALPS NOT AS WARM TODAY AS IN THE PAST

This article highlights something that is seldom, if ever, heard in the mainstream media - an inconvenient fact that destroys the myth that today's climate is the warmest since the last ice age. The truth is that the climate has warmed and cooled several times, showing that there are other natural forces at work.

PUTIN USING GREEN GROUPS TO STOP FRACKING IN EUROPE

This article in the Mail claims that the Russian leader is using Greenpeace and others to generate and increase opposition to fracking, which leaves Europe dependant on Russian gas.

PUBLIC PERCEPTION OF CLIMATE CHANGE

This article from the excellent Scientific Alliance looks at a recent report into the public's perception of climate change. Their findings were that the public were more likely to "engage" with the notion when it referred to climate effects that had directly affected them, rather than abstract things which they had not experienced. Things like the recent floods in the UK were particularly relevant. Of course the important point that is never mentioned in the majority of media articles is that the IPCC state that no heavy rainfall period can be attributed to warming of the globe, which to date has remained very small. It is only computer projections of the future that give significant warming and the real data does not show it.

THE "HIATUS" AND ITS HUGE IMPORTANCE

This article by Ross McKittrick looks at the lack of global warming for the past 17 years and its massive importance for the whole CO2 hypothesis if it continues for a few more years.

ANOTHER PREDICTION GOES UP IN SMOKE

Here's the story of how scientists back in 1997 were predicting permanent El Nino's were likely within the next decade. How wrong they were. It seems they cannot resist making predictions, yet they always turn out wrong. They would do far better to keep quiet.

LATEST CLIMATE TALKS END IN FAILURE

Here are the details of the latest bondoogle. It is starting to look like a pattern. Hardly surprising really, as the Western governments start to wake up to the fact that they are simply handing over money and jobs without any real cuts in CO2 being made by the world as a whole. The whole thing is a pointless charade, but no government dare admit it. What a farce!

GREENPEACE HAVE LOST THEIR WAY

Here is a good article that looks at the campaigning of Greenpeace. In particular it criticises their opposition to coal and nuclear power as the main sources of cheap reliable electricity - the only way that the developing world can raise themselves out of poverty.

GREAT WEBSITES

This website does not claim to know all the answers on climate. Its purpose is to give links to articles which have something of interest on the subject, or something related to it. In that regard I have just come across two great sites. I have provided permanent links at the top of the links section on the right. The first is The Right Climate Stuff written by a group of retired NASA scientists. The second is an excellent source of climate data Climate4You. Both are well worth looking at.

FIRED FOR PUBLISHING SCEPTIC VIEWS ON CLIMATE CHANGE

Here is the story of another professor being sacked for taking a sceptical line on climate change. Such heresy will not be tolerated. To many the whole subject seems much more like a religion than a science.

GEOTHERMAL HEAT IS MELTING ANTARCTIC PENINSULA ICE

According to this report that is a major cause of the melting, rather than global warming.

SCOTLAND MISSES CO2 CUTS TARGET

This article gives the details. Scotland has the most demanding emission reduction targets in the world (as they are led by their Independence Party, full of left-wing green activists) so its hardly surprising that they have not managed to achieve them. What is surprising is that the Scottish people have not yet woken up to the crazy gang that is leading them to disaster. But our government is not likely to point this out as they would like to follow their example, if only they could do so without wrecking the economy even quicker.

UK START BUILDING DIESEL GENERATORS TO BALANCE THE GRID

Here is the story on the BBC website. This confirms earlier reports that this was being planned. Has anyone done the sums to see if any CO2 is being saved at the end of the day?

ABBOTT AND HARPER AGREE NOT TO TAKE ANY CLIMATE ACTION THAT WILL HARM THEIR ECONOMIES

This article gives the details. At last some common sense from the developed nations. Surely now others will follow.

NEW MEXICO FRACKING BAN COULD BE ENDED

This article looks at the details. The ban is in a part of New Mexico and voters seem to be punishing the politicians who put it in place. What a contrast to the UK, where the politicians are in favour and a vociferous number of voters are against.

MET OFFICE FORECAST OF SUMMER DOWNPOURS IGNORES EVIDENCE

This article examines the evidence from weather records to see whether summer daily rainfall is linked to warmer or cooler periods, and finds cooler periods give a stronger link. But why should we believe a few records when the forecast is made by nine months work by a huge computer?

SPANISH GOVERNMENT TO U-TURN ON ITS RENEWABLE ENERGY PAYMENTS

This report gives the details. It is a salutary tale and leaves many investors understandably very angry. Surely many other national governments will be looking at what is happening in Spain. Once a government has reneged on its commitments it is difficult to see how it can restore trust. How could they be so stupid?

NATIONAL TRUST DOES A U TURN ON FRACKING

This article looks at the amazing U-turn by the NT and its director general, Dame Helen Ghosh. Last October she had an "open mind", but now she is "absolutely opposed". Has she been leant on?

CHINESE WHISPERS ON CO2 LIMIT TURN OUT OT BE WRONG

This report looks at the initial understanding and the later clarification which was to announce that it was incorrect. So it seems that it is business as usual for China. This makes the latest USA attempt to close down coal fired power stations seem futile.

CARBON CAPTURE BREAKTHROUGH

Here are some details of this new process for capturing CO2. If it is as good as it sounds then it could solve the whole issue of CO2 emissions and end the demand to end the use of fossil fuels.

U.S. STATES MOVE TO COUNTER NEW LAWS ON CO2 EMISSIONS

This article on the GWPF website explains how several states are looking at moves to water down the effect of new regulations being made by the EPA. The regulations will lead to increased cost for electricity as existing coal powered plants are forced to close.

PROFESSOR POINTS OUT FLAWS IN USA CLIMATE REPORT

Here is the evidence submitted to the US Senate Committee by Professor Botkin,  a very experienced and senior figure in the world of science. It is well worth reading through and calmly he demolishes much of the recent USA Climate Report.

MAJOR MUSEUMS ENGAGE IN SCARY GW SCIENCE FICTION

Just as we are entering our 17th year without global warming, directors of major museums around the world are ratcheting up their alarmist exhibits to try and convince their patrons that the climate is somehow getting worse. Here is an article to give the details of what is happening. It seems so blatant that I don't understand how they can get away with it. But unfortunately most of the public are unaware of the truth. It is simply propaganda.
