The gods will destroy..........

By Vincent Gray
"Those whom the gods would destroy, they first  make mad". This ancient saying is attributed, wrongly, to Euripides
Western Nations are sinking in a sea of debt, yet they are obsessed with the belief that our civilisation is being destroyed by our own actions, and the chief culprit is our need for energy. By  preventing the use of fossil fuels or nuclear power we are hastening our own departure.
I have been involved with trying to understand this mad delusion for over twenty years. At first I was trapped by the authority of those publicizing the "Global Warming" theory and it was only by slow degrees that  I became convinced that one aspect of its claims after another was without scientific foundation until I reached my current assessment that everything about it is wrong, It violates every possible principal of physics, mathematics and elementary logic..

Selling the Five Big Carbon Lies

By Viv Forbes and Helpers

20 March 2012

A print-ready copy of this issue of "Carbon Sense" can be downloaded from:


The Australian government's plan to sell their un-saleable carbon tax has hit a snag – their pollsters have discovered that the word ''carbon'' provokes anger in the electorate.

This is no surprise. Most decent people hate liars and the carbon tax campaign has been mired in lies from the start.

There are five big carbon lies.

The first big lie was from Senator Penny Wong who told us that carbon dioxide is a "pollutant". But people soon learnt that this colourless, non-toxic, natural atmospheric gas is the essential source of food for all life on earth.

The second big lie was graphic – government propaganda pictured a "dirty" coal power station belching black pollution. Three lies in one here – the power station pictured is closed, it is in England, and all the carbon dioxide it ever released was invisible.

The third big lie was to claim that there is a "consensus" and "the science is settled".  The reality is that there is no evidence that convicts carbon of controlling the climate - only theories and models. There is also widespread evidence that temperature records have been subject to urban bias and deliberate doctoring so that they show more warming than has occurred. Moreover more than 30,000 scientists have signed sceptical petitions and their number is growing. There is no consensus and the science is not settled.

Matt Ridley: The beginning of the end of wind

To the nearest whole number, the percentage of the world’s energy that comes from wind turbines today is: zero. Despite the regressive subsidy (pushing pensioners into fuel poverty while improving the wine cellars of grand estates), despite tearing rural communities apart, killing jobs, despoiling views, erecting pylons, felling forests, killing bats and eagles, causing industrial accidents, clogging motorways, polluting lakes in Inner Mongolia with the toxic and radioactive tailings from refining neodymium, a ton of which is in the average turbine — despite all this, the total energy generated each day by wind has yet to reach half a per cent worldwide.

Eastern Europe may block Green Lobby for good.

Poland is lobbying its neighbors on the European Union's less-affluent eastern edge as it seeks to block efforts by the regional group to sharply reduce greenhouse-gas emissions, arguing that the planned cuts will hurt economic growth and fuel inflation.

The European Commission, the EU's executive arm, has drafted a proposal to slash carbon-dioxide output by 2050 to levels so low that Polish officials say they would virtually rule out the use of fossil fuels to generate electricity.

Warsaw vetoed the plan at a meeting of EU environment ministers Friday, and Polish officials say they are now starting to gain the support of its neighbors including the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Romania in a bid to block the initiative permanently.


Binding Citizen's Initiated Referenda

Hi Esther,
"Everyday, good, hard-working, caring people, passionate about their cause/s, and concerned about the government's policies constructively
reducing their freedoms, and adversely affecting their lives, their families, friends, and New Zealander's generally, take precious time and effort to "fight the good fight"
 - and routinely lose - not because they aren't right, or lack support, but because they are missing a vital piece of democracy - the requirement for Citizen Initiated Referenda to be BINDING on Govt!"
Nothing makes this so plain and obvious as when the people of NZ who after returning 80% or more in favour of making a change, or rejecting a policy, e.g. anti-smacking law - are ignored, and rejected by the politicians whom they are supposed to represent! Remember, "by the people, of the people, and for the people..?"

Global Warmists try to Hide their Decline

The Global Warmists Try to Hide Their Decline

by Robert Tracinski

The promoters of the global warming hysteria never really recovered from Climategate, the release of e-mails and data which demonstrated that climate insiders were using questionable data, promoting misleading arguments, and conspiring to block dissenting views from the scientific literature. It was a fatal blow to the credibility of the warmists, and it has been followed by a steady stream of distinguished scientists standing up publicly to withdraw their backing from the global warming "consensus." The latest example is an op-ed by sixteen such scientists in the Wall Street Journal, followed up by a devastating response to their critics.

The global warming alarmists are losing the argument, and the latest scandal—James Delingpole

'I Feel Duped on Climate Change'

Will reduced solar activity counteract global warming in the coming decades? That is what outgoing German electric utility executive Fritz Vahrenholt claims in a new book. In an interview with SPIEGEL, he argues that the official United Nations forecasts on the severity of climate change are overstated and supported by weak science.

The articulate utility executive is nervous at the beginning of the conversation. He is groping for words -- not a common occurrence for the practiced provocateur. After all, Fritz Vahrenholt, 62, who holds a doctorate in chemistry, has been a rebel throughout his life. "Perhaps it's just part of my generation," he says.

Body Blow To German Global Warming Movement! Major Media Outlets Unload On “CO2 Lies!”

By P Gosselin on 6. February 2012
Page 2 story in Bild today! The first of a series.
“THE CO2 LIES … pure fear-mongering … should we blindly trust the experts?”
That’s what Germany’s leading daily Bild(see photo) wrote in its print and online editions today, on the very day that renowned publisher Hoffmann & Campe officially released a skeptic book – one written by a prominent socialist and environmental figure.
This is huge. More than I ever could have possibly imagined. And more is coming in the days ahead! The Bild piece was just the first of a series.
Mark this as the date that Germany’s global warming movement took a massive body blow.
Today, not one, but two of Germany’s most widely read news media published comprehensive skeptical climate science articles in their print and online editions, coinciding with the release of a major climate skeptical book, Die kalte Sonne (The Cold Sun).
Germany has now plunged into raucus discord on the heated topic of climate change

Race begins for wonder gas 'frozen under sea'

From the Climate Policy Network -16 January 2012

Race begins for wonder gas ‘frozen under sea’

A discovery by scientists may have more than doubled the world’s energy reserves. They have found vast amounts of natural gas frozen into the sea bed, potentially containing more energy than all the world’s known coal, oil and gas reserves combined. The research follows the growing excitement generated by Japan Oil, Gas and Metals National Corporation (Jogmec), which has been drilling test wells into methane hydrate reserves in the Nankai trough, off Japan’s southwest coast. It predicts the first gas will be extracted this year, and suggests there could be enough methane hydrate in the trough to supply all Japan’s energy for 300 years. --Jonathan Leake, The Sunday Times, 15 January 2012
