Terrifying New Data on Sea Level Rise

Terrifying to climate alarmists, that is. Sea level has been rising for the last 20,000 years, since the start of the blessed global warming that brought us into the light, warmth and buzzing with life bio-diversity of the current inter-glacial period. The most rapid increases in sea level occurred between fifteen and eight thousand years …

Climate Change is a Moral Issue

Vain attempts to stop completely natural climate variation – aka global warming – kill millions of people in developing countries. 4.3 million people die every year from indoor pollution casued by burning wood and dung on open fires for cooking and heating. Yet  greenies actively work to stop poorer nations developing the electricity supplies and …

Green Power, Black Death

Paul Driessen pointed out years ago that green policies mean stopping developing nations from developing by depriving them of energy and clean water. Viv Forbes lists the ways green policies also undermine the continuing growth of the West. Greens are not only traitors to the poor, they are traitors to the environment: Greens hate individual …

Global Warming Causes Everything

If you haven’t visited it lately, Dr John Brignell’s numberwatch site has a great list of everything so far blamed on global warming. Over six hundred links listing everything from AIDS to haggis to lampreys to feminised turtles to women cheating on vacation. Of course, global warming hasn’t caused any of these things, because the world hasn’t warmed at all …

Same Old Bogeyman

Ron Burgess at Business Spectator describes Australian uber-alarmist Flim Flannery as ‘Labor’s new bogeyman. I am not sure in what sense Flannery or his message are new. He has been constantly, amusingly wrong, but at least he has been consistent. Ron says he doubts that Australian politicians, even those most stridently in the AGW (warming) camp, really believe …

I Want My Global Warming

Four of New York’s seven worst ever recorded snow storms have occurred since 2003. This January has been new York’s snowiest since records have been kept, breaking a record that goes back to 1925. January 26th also broke the 1871 record for the most snow to fall in one day. Records for cold and snow …

I Find Your Lack of Faith Disturbing

He, he. ‘We can give billions of dollars to green energy research.’ ‘And that will enable us to replace gasoline with sunbeams?’ ‘Nothing lost in trying.’ ‘Except the billions of dollars.’ ‘That is taxpayer money. If we don’t take it from them, people will just waste it on their own families, instead of it being …

Fixing Things That Ain’t Broke

With solutions that don’t work. I hope soon to comment on the Murray Darling proposals (costing billions of dollars and tens of thousands of jobs to ‘preserve’ something that never existed until fifty years ago) and SA’s proposed marine parks (costing some 1,000 jobs and approximately $1 billion in lost income from commercial and charter fishing …

Osama Bin Laden Worried

And so he should be. But what is he worried about? Climate change. Of course. There are two possibilities here. Either Osama is an ignorant bloodthirsty hypocritical loon, and he really does believe that anthropogenic climate change is a bigger threat to world peace than he is. OK, it’s certainly possible. Or he is an …

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 …

Undeniable Climate Change Denied

A big group of scientists whose funding depends on continuing to scare people about climate change have produced a report saying climate change is scary. This is news, apparently. Older news is that Phil Jones still can’t find the data on which much of the warming warnings were based. What Phil has admitted is: There has …

Climate Vox Pop

I asked three random people (well it’s about as scientific as those polls in the Courier-Mail) some simple questions. Do you believe the world is getting warmer as a result of human action? Two said yes, one no. To the two who said yes: ‘What are we doing that is causing the world to get warmer?’ …

Hottest Decade?

It is certainly hot in South Australia – over 40 degrees on Kangaroo Island. Adelaide is even hotter – about 43 degrees. One or two very hot spells in a season are not unusual, however. The hottest day I have ever lived through was 46 degrees in the early 80s, also in Adelaide. Has the last decade been …

DSSO (Decadal Science Scare Oscillation) Winner

After considering a number of possible candidates for the next major science scare, the UN today annouced the winner was the asteroid Apophis. ‘We’ve got as much funding, and as many free holidays, as we are likely to get from global warming,’  UN Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon announced today. ‘It’s time to move on.’ ‘The …

Consensus, Consensus, Consensus

I said it three times, so it must be true. Or it was true back in the seventies. No matter how much they try to deny it now (just as in five years time they will all be denying they ever fell for the AGW scam) there seemed to be a consensus two decades ago that …
