HOW CLIMATE DATA HAS BEEN RE-WRITTEN

Earth was much warmer 5,000 years ago when atmospheric CO2 levels were lower – so people whose income depends on climate alarmism had to rewrite history. In the following video Tony Heller shows how the real facts have been erased and replaced with data that supports the CO2 hypothesis.

NET ZERO COST-BENEFIT ANALYSIS THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOT WANT US TO SEE

Net zero, according to the figures from the IPCC will cost the world a quadrillion dollars (that's a one followed by fifteen zeros) and cool it by almost 0.3 degrees Celsius. Read about it here:

HYDROGEN COSTS LOOK PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE

 The idea of using hydrogen as a replacement for methane looks to be highly unlikely if the current costs cannot be substantially reduced. The latest figures can be seen in this report:

ANOTHER CLIMATE REPORT IS DEBUNKED

In this new video by Paul Burgess he looks at a new report by the Isle of Man Climate Change Committee (yes, they have one as well) and explains where it is wrong using the evidence in scientific reports by highly respected institutions including the IPCC. I doubt they will listen to him or change anything, but it is still a very instructive video. The points he raises are equally valid for any other climate body.

WE WILL ALL PAY A HEAVY PRICE FOR TRYING TO ACHIEVE NET ZERO (AND FAILING)

The article, below, contains a lot of points about how our lives are going to be restricted in the attempt to reach net zero, but the main point about the rich paying a heavy price is not quite right as we will all be paying a heavy price, but it is the middle class who will face the worst of the restrictions as it is they who will find they cannot afford to run their car, heat their home, go on holiday. The rich will still be able to do these things, as a complete ban on private jets, heated swimming pools, etc. would simply drive the rich abroad and no government would want to risk that.

The only way the government will be able to claim they have achieved net zero is by claiming that vast amounts of CO2 have been removed from the atmosphere. This will result in a number of schemes coming forward to do this, but this will come at a huge price leaving the question of how this money will be found. I expect some will come from the taxpayer in the form of subsidies and some added to our bills. 

I will wait and see how they try to hide it. I make one prediction, which is that these schemes will lead to scams as a result of either they will simply not work, or even worse they will prove completely fraudulent, as have some of the schemes to "off set" carbon emissions.

NATIONAL GRID RESORTS TO PROPAGANDA

It is hard to know what to believe in the media these days, particuarly on anything to do with climate change and associated policies such as replacing conventional coal and gas generators with wind and solar. The following article debunks a series of attempts by National Grid to show that renewables are cheaper and just as reliable as the traditional coal and gas plants.

NET ZERO IS UNNECESSARY SAYS NEW STUDY

 Unnecessary Net Zero, Part II: A Demonstration with Global Carbon Project Data « Roy Spencer, PhD (drroyspencer.com)

The above link is to an interesting study by Professor Roy Spencer. He says: Net Zero assumes that human CO2 emissions must stop to halt the rise in atmospheric CO2. This is false. nature removes atmospheric CO2 at a rate based upon the CO2 content of the atmosphere, and as long as that remains elevated, nature continues to remove CO2 at a rapid rate. Satellite-observed “global greening” is evidence of that over land. Over the ocean, sea water absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere in proportion to the difference in CO2 partial pressures between the atmosphere and ocean, that is, the higher the atmospheric CO2 content is, the faster the ocean absorbs CO2.

PARTS OF CHINA 7 DEGREES WARMER THAN TODAY FOR OVER 2 THOUSAND YEARS

 New Study: China’s Loess Plateau 7-8°C Warmer Than Today For Much Of The Last 4000 Years (notrickszone.com)

 For the period extending from 2700 years ago to the last few centuries the mean annual temperatures were 17.02°C. This is 7.16°C warmer than present. The mean annual precipitation was 903 mm for this Late Holocene period, which is about 70% higher than today’s.

So warmer and wetter is nothing new and also they claim it was  “the best,” most “favorable,” and “optimal” climate period when compared to the drier and colder climates of recent centuries.

MET OFFICE CAUGHT OUT MAKING UP DATA

This is an amazing story that surely must make the mainstream media. It strikes me that this is the equivalent of the Post Office scandal with data being to all intents and purposes made up. The main story is here:

 Met Office Creates Warming Out Of Thin Air | NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT (wordpress.com)

I would encourage everyone to read the comments, as some correspondents are researching further into the location, suitability, and even the existence of some of the weather stations! In particular this one from Ray Sanders:

May 26, 2024 4:40 pm

“Only 24 of the 380 stations used by the Met Office to calculate UK temperatures are fit for purpose,”

Well actually it is now only 23 not 24. As Paul will know ( I shared the email response from the Met Office with him) Hastings station was shown as Class 1 but I challenged that assessment and have now had it confirmed it is now registered as only Class 4!

I am currently challenging Cassley station (also shown as class 1) and have been able to confirm that the entirety of Cassley (Loch Shin) Hydro electric power station, access roads/hard standing and air cooling for the generators lie within the critical measurement zone – class 3 or even 4 is more appropriate. I also intend to challenge several others in the near future.

Now here is a separate issue that I have discovered in extensive research into dubious Met Office activities. In my home county of Kent there are currently 7 Met Office weather stations. How does that compare with years gone by? Well in 1970 (when scares of an impending ice age were the latest religion) there were …..31 simultaneously operating Met Office stations in Kent.

So why the huge reduction most of which occurred in the 70s/80s? (N.b. This level of reduction occurred nationally)

Well back then most were “manual” stations that required operators to take readings at regular intervals on site. To “improve” forecasting and data quality (ho ho ho) these were automated obviating operator visits. To achieve this the Met Office had to change the thermometers to Platinum resistance units from traditional chemical ones AND provide power and telecoms to the sites. Back then telecomms effectively meant a land line connection.

{Discussion on change to PRT’s on another day.}

As a direct result nearly all the RURAL sites were closed down as no power or telecomms was readily available. I have identified 25 closed sites since 1970 of which 18 were in rural locations. As some examples the coldest temperature ever recorded in Kent ( -21.3°C) was recorded at rural Elmstone (very close to the middle of nowhere) but this site was closed in 1994, the second coldest was at Anvil Green (I know where it is but very few would ever find it) and this was closed in 1992. Even the hottest UK January record site at rural Eynsford was closed in 2008.

So not only are many existing Met Office sites becoming increasingly affected by UHI, they have removed a huge percentage of premium quality rural sites not so affected. Phoenix44 could probably ascertain the statistical distortions this change would have better than I can.

Now hold this thought, of the 18 closed rural sites I have identified I would suggest all were Class 1. Of the remaining 7 current sites only 3 are Class 1 and 2 of those I will challenge soon as being poor sites.

But just to put the icing on the cake I have also identified that a quarter of all sites appearing on this Met Office “Climate Averages” page DO NOT EXIST at all!!! Despite the fact that latitude/longitude co-ordinates and altitude are quoted a quarter are complete FICTION and do not have a recording station within many miles. As just one example Dungeness (shown) is over 25 radial miles from the nearest recording site.

The Met Office have confirmed this and are now rapidly trying to bluff their way of it

More on this to follow soon.

    p.s. forgot to add – don’t you just love it when climate averages are quoted to the second decimal place of one degree using data from sites inaccurate to 5 degrees!

CO2 IS PLANT FOOD AND HERE IS AN EXAMPLE

 “Thanet Earth” is the largest greenhouse area in the UK.

“The glasshouses produce approximately 400 million tomatoes, 24 million peppers and 30 million cucumbers a year, equal to roughly 12, 11 and 8 per cent respectively of Britain’s entire annual production of those salad ingredients.”

Now consider this.

“The complex is powered by combined heat and power systems that create heat, power and carbon dioxide (which is absorbed by the plants) for the greenhouses”

They actually pump the waste CO2 into the greenhouse to improve production levels. 2,000ppm is their target figure – the plants love it, the human workers don’t notice any difference.

PUTTING CO2 EMISSIONS IN PERSPECTIVE

People often say things like "its important for us to do our bit to save CO2 emissions by....." and then mention some small thing like reducing our meat consumption, or driving less, etc, etc. What you seldom hear is what the scale of CO2 emissions actually is. A quick search of the internet found the table below which shows the top ten countries for CO2 emissions and then lists over two hundred other countries. The UK is 17th and produces 0.8% of the world's total. 

Individually our small changes will make no discernible difference whatsoever to the effect of CO2 on the weather or world temperature. Even if we went a lot further and cut out the entire emissions of the whole UK it would have no measurable effect. But the effect on our lives would be massive. The cost to the economy would mean severe cuts on government spending. We would all be affected, but the poor would suffer the most.

£100 MILLION FOR THE WINNER

Firms are beavering away trying to find the best way to capture CO2 and remove it from the atmosphere. You can see how they are doing at this link (from Renewable Guy) 

Musk-backed Xprize carbon removal competition… | Canary Media

I could not find any specific amount of CO2 which they are required to remove, or the cost of it or who is going to pay for it. Even Elon Musk would not be able to afford that! I look forward to China, India and Russia etc, paying their contribution. Or will they be given a free pass?
