EU Carbon Trading Rocked By Mass Killings

The reported killing of 23 Honduran farmers in a dispute with the owners of UN-accredited palm oil plantations in Honduras is forcing the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) executive board to reconsider its stakeholder consultation processes.

In Brussels, the reported killings have triggered European policymakers into action, with Green MEP Bas Eickhout calling the alleged human rights abuses "a disgrace".

The Dutch member of the European Parliament told EurActiv he would be pushing the European Commission to bar carbon credits from the plantations from being used under the EU's Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).

Several members of the CDM board have been "personally distressed" by the events in Bajo Aguán, northern Honduras, according to the board's chairman, Martin Hession, who said they had "caused us great difficulties."


Everything you've heard about fossil fuels may be wrong

The future of energy is not what you think it is

Are we living at the beginning of the Age of Fossil Fuels, not its final decades? The very thought goes against everything that politicians and the educated public have been taught to believe in the past generation. According to the conventional wisdom, the U.S. and other industrial nations must undertake a rapid and expensive transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy for three reasons: The imminent depletion of fossil fuels, national security and the danger of global warming.

What if the conventional wisdom about the energy future of America and the world has been completely wrong?


It pays to check out Tim Flannery's predictions about climate

Andrew Bolt

Tim Flannery has had years of practice trying to terrify us
into thinking human-made climate change will destroy Earth, says Andrew

TIM Flannery has just been hired by the Gillard Government to
scare us stupid, and I can't think of a better man for the job.
This Alarmist of the Year is worth every bit of the $180,000
salary he'll get as part-time chairman of the Government's new Climate

His job is simple: to advise us that we really, truly have to
accept, say, the new tax on carbon dioxide emissions that this
Government threatens to impose.
This kind of work is just up the dark alley of Flannery,
author of The Weather Makers, that bible of booga booga.
He's had years of practice trying to terrify us into thinking
our exhausts are turning the world into a fireball that will wipe out
civilisation, melt polar ice caps and drown entire cities under hot seas.
Small problem, though: after so many years of hearing
Flannery's predictions, we're now able to see if some of the scariest
have actually panned out.


The Truth About Greenhouse Gases

The dubious science of the climate crusaders.

The object of the Author in the following pages has been to collect the most remarkable instances of those moral epidemics which have been excited, sometimes by one cause and sometimes by another, and to show how easily the masses have been led astray, and how imitative and gregarious men are, even in their infatuations and crimes,” wrote Charles Mackay in the preface to the first edition of his Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds. I want to discuss a contemporary moral epidemic: the notion that increasing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases, notably carbon dioxide, will have disastrous consequences for mankind and for the planet. The “climate crusade” is one characterized by true believers, opportunists, cynics, money-hungry governments, manipulators of various types—even children’s crusades—all based on contested science and dubious claims.


New NASA Data Blow Gaping Hole In Global Warming Alarmism

by James Taylor  27 July 2011

NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth's atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.


2011 will be a cold year

Global Cooling

2011 will be a cold year
In a peer reviewed paper entitled “Influence of the Southern Oscillation on Tropospheric Temperature” published in 2009, Maclean, de Freitas and Carter established that global temperatures followed the Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) with a lag of between six and eight months. Obviously, this meant that global temperatures could be predicted about seven months ahead.*

Global warming? A new ice age? The only certainty is that YOU'RE paying for the hysteria of our politicians

Daily Mail by Christopher Booker  6 July 2011

Who would possibly have thought it? The latest news is that the world may be threatened by a sharp drop in temperatures, possibly so severe that it could herald a new mini ice age.


There has been no global warming since 1998

The Telegraph- James Delingpole   6 July 2011

The headline of this post really shouldn’t be controversial. It chimes perfectly with what Kevin “null hypothesis” Trenberth wrote in that notorious 2009 Climategate email to Michael Mann:
