SCIENTISTS HAVE FOUND MORE EVIDENCE THAT CLIMATE MODELS ARE OVER-ESTIMATING THE TEMPERATURE RISE


This article gives a rather technical explanation, but the summary is clear "we are all living with the consequences of climate modelers stubbornly using generation after generation of models that exhibit too much surface and tropospheric warming".                   

"That's bias, not uncertainty, and until the modelling community finds a way to fix it, the economics and policy making communities are justified in assuming future warming projections are overstated, potentially by a great deal depending on the model."

FOSSIL FUELS ARE KEY TO SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT


This article points out the fact that fossil fuels have enabled farmers to increase crop yields and so free up land for the environment. Not something that many climate alarmists would like to admit.

PAST CLIMATE WAS MORE EXTREME IN USA THAN RECENT TIMES


This video reveals the evidence to show that the climate in the first half of the twentieth century was more extreme than that of the recent 50 years. So much for the climate becoming more extreme!

WAR ON THE MOTORIST INTENSIFIES IN THE UK

Some councils in the UK are using the coronavirus crisis as an excuse to make life more difficult for motorists. See here for details. As you can see from the article the shopkeepers are also suffering from these attacks on the motorist, as the motorists are simply not going into these towns and are shopping elsewhere. Shopkeepers don't have a vote in council elections unless they also live in the same district as the shop, however a lot of people who work in shops do and are unlikely to vote for councillors who destroy their jobs with grand schemes.


Already some councils have been forced to backtrack according to this report. It seems they have so little foresight that they are unable to see such obvious problems with their schemes.

HOW A COOLING TREND CAN BE TURNED INTO A WARMING TREND


This short video highlights the extraordinary ways that climate alarmists try to convince us that the world is warming rapidly when in fact the trend in the USA is one of cooling. Simply by changing the start date for the graph they can simply alter the whole trend.

WHAT ARE CLIMATE SCIENTISTS ACTUALLY TELLING US?


This short video goes into the history of global temperature data. Another superb video by Tony Heller explains how scientists have been unable to get their forecasts right, forcing them to keep changing their explanation to try and fit the facts.

CLIMATE SCIENTISTS ALTER TEMPERATURE DATA TO FIT THEIR THEORY


This short video makes a compelling case that world temperature data is unreliable based on the state of glaciers around the world. The original data has been altered with no clear reason given, leading to the conclusion that it has been done to fit the hypothesis of man made global warming.

POWER CUTS ARE NOW A REALITY IN CALIFORNIA DUE TO CLIMATE LAWS

This article explains how Californians not only have the most expensive electricity, but also the least reliable as well. I hope the UK government will take note, but I doubt it as they will regard this as something in the distant future, though they may find it happens unexpectedly, just like corona virus.

WELCOME TO THE SCARY FUTURE OF UK ENERGY

This piece looks at the future of UK energy and it is not a pleasant one for consumers, as we already know. However the majority of the public are quite unaware as the media have simply ignored this, which is odd really since they normally love a scare story.

BEWARE THE THREAT FROM CHINA

American policymakers have long assumed that Chinese and American goals in the Middle East are largely complementary. Beijing, so the prevailing wisdom holds, is fixated on commerce, with a special emphasis on oil and gas. “China’s strategy in the Middle East is driven by its economic interests,” a former senior official in the Obama administration testified last year before Congress. “China … does not appear interested in substantially deepening its diplomatic or security activities there.”

According to this reigning view, China adopts a position of neutrality toward political and military conflicts, because taking sides would make enemies who might then restrict China’s access to markets.

This oft-repeated shibboleth ignores clear signs that China is very actively engaged in a hard-power contest with the United States—a contest that the Chinese occasionally acknowledge and are capable of winning. In 2016, Xi Jinping toured the Middle East for the first time in his capacity as president of the People’s Republic of China, visiting Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Iran. Chinese propaganda hailed the trip as a milestone. The Chinese Foreign Ministry issued a 
white paper on its Arab policy, the first of its kind. “We will deepen China-Arab military cooperation and exchange,” the paper read. “We will … deepen cooperation on weapons, equipment and various specialized technologies, and carry out joint military exercises.”

The following year, in 2017, the Chinese navy opened a naval base in Djibouti, the first overseas base it has ever established—a tacit renunciation of the traditional Chinese credo of noninterventionism. Djibouti sits on the southern end of the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait, which guards the passage to the Red Sea and the Suez Canal from the Gulf of Aden. On the northern end, only 18 miles away, lies Yemen.

China is advancing on the Middle East with ruthless determination, because the region is of more vital interest to China than any other, aside from the Western Pacific. Indeed, China is actively working to oust the United States from the Middle East—a reality that the American strategic community would overwhelmingly prefer not to recognize, but one that is nonetheless becoming glaringly obvious.

Don’t believe us? Ask the Uighurs, the brutalized people of Xinjiang province, which the Chinese government is actively colonizing by moving in millions of ethnic Han Chinese. The lucky among the Uighurs, who number some 11 million in total, are trapped in an inescapable web of surveillance and oppression. The unlucky ones, numbering perhaps 1 million, are interned in ideological indoctrination camps where they are exploited as slave labor, tortured, and, according to recent reports, subjected to forced sterilizations.

EMPEROR PENGUINS DOING FINE - DESPITE "WORST CASE" MODEL PREDICTIONS

This article explains how reality is exposing the failure of computer models, just as with polar bears the reality is that they are doing well, but those in the media don't want to tell us that.

SO MUCH FOR "CHEAP" WIND ENERGY


This article looks at the claims made by Scottish Power boss, Keith Anderson that Wind energy was now "so low the projects may even help to make Britain’s energy cheaper."
It is easy to make such claims, but hard to substantiate them when your own companies cost data shows them to be false. 

This article also adds to the debate.

RENEWABLE ENERGY USES RESOURCES JUST AS MUCH AS FOSSIL FUEL


This article explains that simply because energy is called renewable does not mean that it does not require a lot of resources in order to obtain that energy.

Here is a short extract:
"No energy system, in short, is actually “renewable,” since all machines require the continual mining and processing of millions of tons of primary materials and the disposal of hardware that inevitably wears out. Compared with hydrocarbons, green machines entail, on average, a 10-fold increase in the quantities of materials extracted and processed to produce the same amount of energy."
Tell that to a Friend of the Earth.

SEA LEVEL RISE

A study of the Newlyn (UK) sea level measurements discusses how different instruments and different time frames give totally different trends. The text states:
 

“The record of monthly MSL [Mean Sea Level] at Newlyn during the past century shows that the average increase of MSL for the complete record and for the recent period 1993–2014 are 1.8mm/year [tidal gauge]) and 3.8 mm/year [satellites]* respectively. (we use 1993 somewhat arbitrarily for the start of the modern era in sea level monitoring as that was when precise altimeter information from space became available). 

High rates of sea level increase were observed in previous 22-year periods, including those centred on approximately 1926, 1950, and 1980 (with rates of approximately 3 mm/year), with the lowest rates centred on 1934 and 1968 (approximately 0 mm/year), with such accelerations and decelerations in the record similar to those seen in other parts of the world (Woodworth et al. 2009b). The variability and long-term trend in the Newlyn MSL record are similar to those at Brest (W√∂ppelmann et al. 2006), although some differences become apparent in a detailed comparison (Douglas 2008), and at other stations in the North Sea area (Wahl et al. 2013). 

*The noticeable difference in rate (a ratio of at least 1:2) between the two data sets still has no broadly accepted explanation.

SIX REASONS WHY WE CANNOT MAKE ACCURATE PREDICTIONS ABOUT FUTURE CLIMATE

1) The climate system is never in equilibrium.  

2) The core of the system consists of two turbulent fluids interacting with each other and unevenly heated by the sun, which results in transport of heat from the equator towards the poles (meridional) creating ocean cycles that may take 1,000 years to complete. 

3) The two most important substances in the greenhouse effect are water vapor and clouds, which are not fully understood and are not stable.  

4) A vital component of the atmosphere is water in its liquid, solid, and vapor phases and the changes in phases have immense dynamic consequences. 

5) Doubling carbon dioxide, (CO2), creates a 2% disturbance to the normal flow of energy into the system and out of the system, which is similar to the disturbance created by changes in clouds and other natural features. 

6) Temperatures in the tropics have been extremely stable. It is the temperature differences between the tropics and polar regions that are extremely important. Calculations such as global average temperature largely ignore this important difference.

WHY WE MUST REVISE THE ASSESSMENT OF WHAT IS A SAFE LEVEL OF NUCLEAR RADIATION


This article looks at the way safety in dealing with nuclear radiation has been assessed in the past and why it is wrong and must change. In the past it was decided that no level of radiation was safe, with the consequence that the cost of nuclear power plants has been driven up to ridiculously high levels and so uncompetitive that they were not built. For decades we have denied ourselves safe, affordable energy.

COASTAL PROTECTION EXPERTS NOW ROUTINELY RAMP UP THE SEA LEVEL RISE SCARE IN REPORTS

Below is a short extract from a report into the failure of sea defences in my Council area at Milford-on-sea: 

"The first groynes were constructed at Milford-on-sea between 1867 and 1898. Studies of historical maps and aerial imagery indicate that in the period between 1872 and 1932 the cliff top was retreating at a rate of between 0.1 and 1.0m per annum. Additional structures were added in 1936, these localised defences restricted shoreline movement. The period 1932 to 1963 saw an increased erosion rate of up to 1.3m per annum. These defences were extended to the east and west in the 1960's resulting in the rate decreasing to around 0.1m per annum between 1963 and 2005.

This is consistent with observations by West (2020) that suggest that the cliffs were relatively stable until the last decade. However rising sea levels of up to 1.0m by 2105 (Royal Haskoning, 2011) combined with beach narrowing potentially as a result of adjacent sea defences reducing sediment supplies from the west are now resulting in more overtopping of the existing sea defences and more rapid cliff erosion."

Notice that the report seeks to blame the failure partly on sea level rise - not based on actual figures from nearby tide gauges, but instead from a report giving projections of future sea level rise. If they used the actual figures they would show that the sea level is only rising at under 2mm per year which equates to less than 20cm, or 8 inches per century

REMEMBER THE RECENT DECADE IS COOLER THAN THE PRECEDING ONE


This piece is an excellent debunk of the climate change hype that is constantly put out by the BBC and other media here. Here is a chart to confirm the headline to this article.

Indeed, decadal average temperatures have actually dropped slightly since 2000-2009:
