ETS supporters betray Australia

The Carbon Sense Coalition claimed today that those who vote for the Wong Ration-N-Tax Scheme are betraying every backbone industry in Australia, for no climate benefits whatsoever.

Letter to Waikato Times 25 January 2010

 I could not agree more with JA Griffiths (WT 25/01). From the studies I have undertaken, it appears to me that it is the environmental movement who have been selective in the facts which they have used to convince the world that we are responsible for a phenomenon which has been continuing in cycles for billions of years. The recent failure of the Copenhagen summit and the resulting waste of time and money should be regarded as a wake-up call which will hopefully buy the world some time.

U.N.'s Global Warming Report Under Fresh Attack for Rainforest Claims

By Gene J. Koprowski

 - 28 January 2010

A United Nations report on climate change that has been lambasted for its faulty research is under new attack for yet another instance of what its critics say is sloppy science -- adding to a growing scandal that has undermined the credibility of scientists and policymakers who back the U.N.'s  findings about global warming.
In the Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), issued in 2007 by the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), scientists wrote that 40 percent of the Amazon rainforest in South America was endangered by global warming.

But that assertion was discredited this week when it emerged that the findings were based on numbers from a study by the World Wildlife Federation that had nothing to do with the issue of global warming -- and that was written by a freelance journalist and green activist.

The Hottest Hoax in the World

OPEN magazine 30 January 2010

It was presented as fact. The UN's Intergovernmental panel on Climate Change, led by India's very own RK Pachauri, even announced a consensus on it. The world was heating up and humans were to blame. A pack of lies, it turns out.

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrarywise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see? —Alice in Wonderland
The climate change fraud that is now unravelling is unprecedented in its deceit, unmatched in scope—and for the liberal elite, akin to 9 on the Richter scale. Never have so few fooled so many for so long, ever.

Car and driver for 1 mile trip Climate Gate Chief but you should take public transportation

Sunday 31 January 2010

He is the climate change chief whose research body produced a report warning that the glaciers in the Himalayas might melt by 2035 and earned a Nobel Prize for his work – so you might expect Dr Rajendra Pachauri to be doing everything he can to reduce his own carbon footprint.

But as controversy continued to simmer last week over the bogus ‘Glaciergate’ claims in a report by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – which he heads – Dr Pachauri showed no apparent inclination to cut global warming in his own back yard.

More Scandals Implicate IPCC Climate Scientists

By F. William Engdahl
22 January 2010


Only days after the failed Copenhagen Global Warming Summit, yet a new scandal over the scientific accuracy of the UN IPCC 2007 climate report has emerged. Following the major data-manipulation scandals from the UN-tied research center at Britain’s East Anglia University late 2009, the picture emerges of one of the most massive scientific frauds of recent history.

There is “no real evidence” Global Warming causes natural disasters

Gee whiz, it turns out Global Warming isn’t responsible for natural disasters. Who’d a thunk it?

The paper on which the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) based its Himalayan Glacier argument — by Robert Muir-Wood (a researcher whose career the IPCC has undoubtably damaged) — is now speaking out against the organization which made him so famous. The IPCC based their claims on Muir-Wood’s article before it was peer-reviewed, and it seems he is no doubt upset that his work would be cited before being verified. Since the controversy, Muir-Wood has made statements along with fellow researchers pointing out that there is no validity behind the IPCC’s claims of global warming causing natural disasters — such as in Bangledesh and Cumbria — which are the basis of arguments for speakers shouting impending doom, like Miliband and Barack Obama. Here an excerpt from the Times Online article:

He found from 1950 to 2005 there was no increase in the impact of disasters once growth was accounted for. For 1970-2005, however, he found a 2% annual increase which “corresponded with a period of rising global temperatures,”

Muir-Wood was, however, careful to point out that almost all this increase could be accounted for by the exceptionally strong hurricane seasons in 2004 and 2005. There were also other more technical factors that could cause bias, such as exchange rates which meant that disasters hitting the US would appear to cost proportionately more in insurance payouts.


Warming trend or cooling trend?

The Kiwi Party
Press Release
14 January, 2010

“The headlines recently proclaimed the first decade of the 21st century to be the hottest ever,” said Kiwi Party Leader, Larry Baldock. "This is all supposedly consistent with global warming of course. As it turned out this headline was actually referring to NZ temperatures only and NIWA had to admit it was only hotter by a very small margin.

“What really matters in the global warming debate,” said Mr Baldock, “are the Global Average Temperatures (GAT). In England, around the time of the Copenhagen climate change summit, I saw a headline in the newspapers proclaiming, ‘2010 predicted to be the hottest ever.’ A rather rash prediction given that weather forecasters are never too good on their predictions, particularly in the UK where they were talking about a mild winter just prior to being hit by the coldest temperatures in 30 years!”

Neil Henderson- reservations about Global Research Alliance

I have severe reservations about the Global Research Alliance on Agricultural Emissions that came out of Copenhagen. I believe it is a poisoned chalice. It is headed in totally the wrong direction.

The suggestion that something needs to be done about our livestock emissions is suggesting there is something wrong with them now. Nothing could be further from the truth. Our animals are as near to clean and green as it is possible to get. To change their emissions is to make them less green.

Those pushing the need to reduce livestock emissions are damaging our clean green image. It is remarkable how many urban people know human produced global warming is a myth, but in the next breath say we need to do something about those dirty cows and their methane. The Global Alliance as proposed is only going to reinforce this misunderstanding.

From the Met Office's mistakes to Gordon Brown's wind farms, the cost of 'green' policies is growing.

From UK Telegraph..............Warmists' folly is becoming clear

 Impeccable was the timing of that announcement that directors of the Met Office were last year given pay rises of up to 33 per cent, putting its £200,000-a-year chief executive into a higher pay bracket than the Prime Minister. As Britain shivered through Arctic cold and its heaviest snowfalls for decades, our global-warming-obsessed Government machine was caught out in all directions.
