GOOD-BYE TO EU STEEL MAKERS

Here are the sad details of the demise of one of Europe's great industries along with the hundreds of good jobs that go with it. Of course it is not going entirely all at once, but if new plants are being built out of the EU it is just a matter of time before the older plant becomes obsolete. Such policies are the knock-on effect of climate change policies and if these continue then other energy intensive industry will surely follow.

THE CLIMATE BANDWAGON KEEPS ON ROLLING

As a councillor I get sent a lot of stuff on climate change. Here is an example of an expensive waste of time, or an easy way to make a profit out of climate propaganda. Why on earth would anyone want to pay £300 to be given more propaganda on this topic?  You would think there was already enough in the mainstream media.

WHO SAID SCEPTICS WERE CONSPIRACY THEORISTS?

If you thought that climate sceptics were likely to believe in conspiracy theories, then read this! Does this man really believe that only he and three other UK scientists are experts on Arctic ice thickness? He seems to live in a climate alarmists bubble and needs to get out more - but of course he can't, as this would allow the "assassins" to get him. Time for him to get a disguise and disappear.

UK PRESS AND THE HOTTEST MONTH/YEAR HEADLINES

Here's a good piece dissecting the claims, often mad in the UK press recently, that this month/year will be the hottest ever, based on a forecast of a few hot days.  Of course they want to sell papers and these claims make for dramatic headlines. The reality is that it becomes like the story of the boy who cried wolf.

ECO HOMES TURN INTO OVENS IN HOT WEATHER

This Mail article looks at the problems with increasing the insulation and draught-proofing of homes. It works in the winter but causes severe over-heating in the summer. The obvious solution, which climate alarmists will not like, is to install air-conditioning. So much for low carbon !

BBC RATCHETS UP ITS ALARMIST PROPAGANDA

This article from Roger Helmer MEP's excellent blog explains in simple English why the BBC is wrong to be so biased in its reporting of issues related to climate change, but I doubt that they will change as their alarmist position has become so embedded that it is very unlikely to change.

THE MYSTERY OVER BRITAIN'S "HOTTEST DAY"

UN URGES DEVELOPED NATIONS TO TRANSFER 100 BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR

If climate change is not all about the money, I think we can conclude from this that it is certainly a very important aspect which helps to keep it going despite the apparent lack of warming in recent decades.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki- moon on Monday urged developed countries to create a credible plan to commit 100 billion U.S. dollars per year by 2020 to support developing countries to adapt to climate change.

"I strongly urge developed countries to provide a politically credible trajectory for mobilizing 100 billion dollars per year by 2020 to support developing countries in curbing emissions and strengthening their resilience," Ban said at a high-level event on climate change.

The UN chief said he would "proactively engage with leaders from both the global north and south to make sure this goal is met and is considered credible by all."

He expressed disappointment with what he called the "snail's pace" of climate negotiations currently taking place in the lead up to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change meeting set to take place in Paris on Dec. 7-8.

"I really count on leaders, presidents, prime ministers and ministers to exercise their political direction so that this negotiation will move much faster," Ban said.
