Catastrophic Global Cooling- only 30 years ago


Factsheet on 1970s Coming 'Ice Age' Claims  
'Fears of a coming ice age, showed up in peer-reviewed literature, at scientific conferences, by prominent scientists and throughout the media'

Despite many claims to the contrary, the 1970's global cooling fears were widespread among many scientists and in the media. Despite the fact that there was no UN IPCC organization created to promote global cooling in the 1970s and despite the fact that there was nowhere near the tens of billions of dollars in funding spent today to promote man-made global warming, fears of a coming ice age, showed up in peer-reviewed literature, at scientific conferences, voiced by prominent scientists and throughout the media.

Garth George- Copenhagen Blabfest is a load of hot air

Buried on a far back page of world news in this newspaper on Monday was an item recording that an international carbon credits scam worth more than $2.2 billion is being investigated by detectives in at least five European countries.

The fraud, covering Britain, Italy, Spain, Denmark (scene of the upcoming Copenhagen international climate negotiations conference in December) and Sweden involves the buying and selling of emission allowances across borders to avoid value added tax.

For those of us who have known for years that man-made carbon dioxide emissions have nothing to do with global warming, and who recognise that an unnecessary international carbon trading scheme would be wide open to abuse, this comes as no surprise.


Lawrence Solomon: The end is near

I know that the global warming scare is over but for the shouting because that’s what the polls show, at least those in the U.S., where unlike Canada the public is polled extensively on global warming. Most Americans don’t blame humans for climate change — they consider global warming to be a natural phenomenon. Even when the polls showed the public believed man was responsible for global warming, the public didn’t take the scare seriously. When asked to rank global warming’s importance compared to numerous other concerns — unemployment, trade, health care, poverty, crime, and education among them — global warming came in dead last. Fewer than 1% chose global warming as scare-worthy.


The Great Global Warming Scam (ctd)

Friday 2nd October 2009

Yet another scientific scandal has come to light which knocks another whopping crater in the already shattered theory of anthropogenic global warming. Eight peer-reviewed studies, which for years have played a significant supporting role behind the IPPC’s claims of AGW, have been shown to be fraudulent.


Farmers dispute animal methane measure

Asa Wahlquist, Rural writer | October 05, 2009

Article from:  The Australian


CLAIMS that cattle and sheep are responsible for 10.9 per cent of Australia's greenhouse gas emissions have been called into question after scientists discovered considerable variation in the amount of methane produced by individual animals.

Farmers, fearful of the costs greenhouse gas emissions trading will impose on their businesses, are demanding more accurate measurement of emissions before the ETS is brought in.

Beverley Henry, manager for environment, sustainability and climate change with Meat & Livestock Australia, said current estimates were based on livestock overseas, with the actual emissions likely to vary depending on diet and animal type, as well as other factors.

"At the moment, we don't reflect those in Australia's national accounts very well," Dr Henry said.

"We need to get better quantification of the emissions as well as an understanding of how much mitigation is possible."


A Threat to Freedom and Prosperity- NZCPR Weekly

The current Global Warming Debate is not about temperature or CO2 levels. It is an ideological clash between those who want to change us (rather than the climate) and those who believe in freedom, markets, human ingenuity, and technical progress. The advocates of global warming alarmism ask for an almost unprecedented expansion of government intrusion, of government intervention into our lives and of government control over us. We are pushed into accepting rules about how to live, what to do, how to behave, what to consume, what to eat, how to travel. It is unacceptable.

National’s Climate Change Response (Moderated Emissions Trading) Amendment Bill is now in front of the Finance and Expenditure Select Committee. Submissions close on the 13th of October, giving a

scandalously short time frame for the preparation of submissions on legislation of this scale.[2]


Carbon scam in Europe

5:15AM Monday Oct 05, 2009
An international carbon credits scam worth more than £1 billion ($2.2 billion) is being investigated by detectives in at least five European countries.
The fraud, originally coordinated by gangs in Spain and Britain, involves the buying and selling of emission allowances across borders in order to avoid value added tax.
The disclosure of the scale of the illegal trade in carbon credits will cause further consternation for the Governments and environmental groups that set up the system to measure and limit emissions. It comes as the EU introduces rules to control the fraud.

Prologue to Copenhagen


NZCPR Guest Forum 

Chris de Freitas
3 October
The Kyoto Protocol, an icon of the global environmental movement, is soon to be replaced by a more radical international accord to curb greenhouse gas emissions. What it will involve depends on the outcome of negotiations this December in Copenhagen. In preparation, the Government has committed New Zealand to cut up to a third of current emissions by 2020. The emissions trading scheme is a first step, but this alone cannot guarantee such a massive reduction. Sweeping legislation restricting the use of oil, coal and natural gas will be required, along with far-reaching reforms in pastoral farming to cut methane release. The economic and social implications for New Zealand are immense.

Global Warming

 Believe "Global warming"? Better have a read.....

Australia's Opposition leader is destroying his party with his  'belief'.

Regarding the ETS. It should be thrown in the bin. Not negotiated. I am
an Australian computer scientist, specialising in computer models and
statistics, ex Australian Bureau of Statistics, founder and ex- chairman
of the QAUUG.... What is your comment on this revelation from one of the
chief climate scientists WITHIN the IPCC?
"Latif is one of the leading climate modellers in the world. He is the
recipient of several international climate-study prizes and a lead author
for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
He has contributed significantly to the IPCC's last two five-year reports
that have stated unequivocally that man-made greenhouse emissions are
causing the planet to warm dangerously.
Yet in Geneva, Latif was forced to admit that all those An-
Inconvenient-Truth-style fantasy projections showing global temperatures
rising inexorably with C02 levels were wrong.

“Man-made Global Warming does not Exist”.


Viv Forbes

The truth is emerging – there is not a scrap of evidence that man-made carbon dioxide causes global warming. The IPCC has been devious and incompetent. Australia should boycott all further IPCC meetings and withhold future funding.
A mere 20,000 years ago, massive ice sheets covered much of the earth. The sparse population led a cold hungry existence.
Then, just 12,000 years ago, and there was dramatic natural global warming - ice sheets melted, sea levels rose and the warming seas expelled carbon dioxide. The warmth and increased carbon dioxide plant food in the atmosphere encouraged the spread of grasslands, forests and animal and human populations over lands once covered by thick, barren sheets of ice.
