The Climate Youth Brigade

The history of the twentieth century is replete with radical groups scaring children about the future they are to inherit, and encouraging them to take to the streets to shout slogans they did not understand, to denounce their parents, and to demand political changes they could not comprehend. It is not a happy company. The …

CO2 and Methane

$3.80 out of $10,000. That’s the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere. 1.7 cents out of $10,000. That’s the amount of Methane in the atmosphere. Terrifying, isn’t it?

And Right On Cue

Five minutes after I posted the previous article about global warming alarmists losing debates and resorting to insults, an article by professor of psychology Stephan Lewandowksy appeared on the ABC’s Drum website. It starts off well enough: Science is self-correcting. In the long run, occasional errors that slip into the peer-reviewed literature are ironed out. …

Jackboots on Viscount Monckton

A few days ago Viscount Monckton suggested that those who think like professional climate boogeymen Ross Garnaut are on a short road to fascism. Cue legacy media frenzy of horror. His comments were bizarre, appalling, distasteful, etc, etc. He should be disinvited from everything and no one should ever be seen near him again. Yeah, but, yeah, but …

Resistance Is Footle

Are the Islamists and Greens more like the borg, from Star Trek, or the Necromongers, from the sadly under-rated Chronicles of Riddick? OK. Don’t get the idea I have spent hours on this. But ..

Unwarranted Assumptions

Take for example the Zero Carbon Australia, 2020 report which claimed that all of Australian energy could com from renewable energy sources by 2020. Ted (F.E.) Trainer, a well known Australian energy theorist pointed to some of the plans flaws, To summarise, my back of the envelope …

It’s Freezing. Must Be Global Warming.

Arctic Summer temperatures have been trending down since about 1960, so have temperatures in San Diego, cold snaps are killing all manner of things in South America, Antarctic sea ice is increasing, the southern hemisphere oceans seem to be getting colder, and it’s been flipping cold here in Australia. I want my global warming now! News …

Now There’s An Idea That Could Work …

This is both funny and tragic because the words put into Obama’s mouth are true, and the plan would work. But it will just never happen. Imagine the posibilities, the hopenchangen. But, instead, real hope, and real change. Darn. The more I think about it, the sadder I feel. From Scott Ott’s Scrappleface: Delegates to the global climate …

Mainstream Media Picks Up CRU Email Story

This article in the Wall Street Journal Hacked Emails Show Climate Science Ridden with Rancor may be the beginning of some very reluctant coverage by the commercial media. They were always going to be a bit slow. After all, disastrous global warming has been one of their major headline grabbers for the last decade. Higher sales …
