The Met Office has warned that if the world continues to burn fossil

The Cost of Carbon

Taranaki Daily News

Last updated 05:00 26/09/2009
OPINION: Taranaki has been high on the agenda in Parliament this week.

But the honourable members of the House were not talking about the region's wonderful collection of must-see attractions or John Key's failure to mention the energy pulse of the nation on the Letterman show.

Taranaki was the point of attack, the fulcrum of debate over the efficacy of National's Emissions Trading Scheme and how much of the burden of meeting our obligations under the Kyoto Protocol will be passed on to the consumers and taxpayers.

Government Funded Scientists

 Thursday October 1 2009 - 02:14pm

How can you trust government-funded scientists ?

Audits of the climate science are left to unpaid volunteers. A dedicated but largely uncoordinated grassroots movement of scientists has sprung up around the globe to test the integrity of the theory and compete with a well funded ($75 billion spent over 20years) highly organized climate monopoly.


Climate Change Mitigation Strategies Ignore Carbon Cycling Processes Of Inland Waters, Scientists Say

ScienceDaily (Sep. 27, 2009) - In a paper titled "The Boundless Carbon Cycle," published in the September issue of Nature Geoscience, scientists from the University of Vienna, Uppsala University in Sweden, University of Antwerp, and the U.S. based Stroud Water Research Center argue that current international strategies to mitigate manmade carbon emissions and address climate change have overlooked a critical player - inland waters. Streams, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and wetlands play an important role in the carbon cycle that is unaccounted for in conventional carbon cycling models.


Do Sunspots cause Global Warming?

September 25, 2009
In our last article on sunspots, we mentioned the strange period from 1645-1715 when sunspots seemed to disappear.  Called the Maunder Minimum, this period coincided with the "Little Ice Age", when Northern Europe and other parts of the world were plunged into a long period of cool summers and long winters when crop yields fell and rivers, harbors, and canals froze.

New Information causes Climate Scientist to concede: The Earth is Cooling

Recently some new information has become available which seriously questions the whole UN’s basis on climate change and its computer modelling work of future changes. The week before the latest UN’s world leaders conference there was another UN climate conference in Geneva where one of the UN’s own leading climate scientists and computer modellers, professor Mojib Latif from Germany’s Leibniz Institute of Marine Sciences at Keil University stated that from recent research he has conducted he has had to conclude that global warning has ceased and also that the planet is currently cooling and will likely continue to do so for another 20 years.

An experiment that hints we are wrong on climate change -by Clare Swinney

We discovered this article on ''- a fascinating site.

Are the one-world fascist government proponents distorting the facts regarding global warming to get countries, including ours, to pay a tax that they can then use to fund their non-elected bureaucracy – a bureaucracy that will have no significant impact on the climate?

This from the London Times, February 12th 2007
An experiment that hints we are wrong on climate change
Nigel Calder, former editor of New Scientist, says the orthodoxy must be challenged.

Al Gore admits: I was wrong about Climate Change.............Yeah Right!!!!

We came across this spoof and thought it might provide a bit of light relief amid all the serious articles... enjoy!

Climate Rules stump DOC -by David Williams, The Press

The Department of Conservation (DOC) has suspended control of wilding pine trees while the Government fixes a climate-change "mistake".

DOC has been hit with an $811,000 "liability" under the emissions trading scheme because it cut down 53 hectares of pre-1990 trees.

The liability for other organisations councils, charitable trusts and conservation organisations runs into millions.

Activities at the United Nations this week -- including Tuesday's climate change conference -- are generating a large carbon footprint from international travel, lengthy motorcades and clogged streets.
