U.K. Daily Telegraph columnisty Sherrelle Jacobs writes: "This post-truth scam is having a chilling effect on science. Experts are locked in a race to the bottom to make detailed and disastrous premonitions. And despite the fact that disciplined debate is the motor of scientific discovery, eco-extremists are shutting down discussions that dissent from the Apocalypse narrative. "
Dr Roger Higgs (DPhil Oxford, geology, 1982-86) writes: "The United Nations IPCC says ongoing warming is due to man's CO2 emissions, hence 'Anthropogenic Global Warming' (AGW). The 3 pillars on which they base this claim are unscientific and quickly disproved."
Anyone concerned at the misinformational peddled about alleged adverse effects on Earth's climate arising from of emissions of methane (CH4) by farm animals must read this 2014 paper by U.S. scientist Dr Tom Sheahen, in which he first applies to CH4 the term "irrelevant", a term since picked up by other scientists such as Dr Will Happer.
Matt Ridley rebuts biodiversity alarmism at Reaction.Life: "Driven perhaps by envy at the attention that climate change is getting, and ambition to set up a great new intergovernmental body that can fly scientists to mega-conferences, biologists have gone into overdrive on the subject of biodiversity this week.
John Rofe is a New Zealand fraud investigator. In this paper he sets out these conclusions: "For the period since satellite records began, the global atmospheric temperature increase to the end of March 2019 is now down to only 0.34 degrees Celsius. (That is the only tamper-proof temperature data now available.) That doesn’t support the notion of runaway global warming. This year it is claimed the global warming industry will be worth USD1.5 trillion and its total worth is climbing rapidly. It is simply a USD1.5 trillion fraud that will continue to get bigger."
This detailed report prepared by Dr Ole Humlum for the Global Warming Policy Foundation covers all the aspects of "climate change" and shows we have little or nothing to worry about - unless it is future cooling. Dr Humlum is former Professor of Physical Geography at the University Centre in Svalbard, Norway, and Emeritus Professor of Physical Geography, University of Oslo, Norway.
We thank New Zealand's most-widely-read blog, "Whaleoil Beef Hooked" for having the courage to be the only news medium to publish this article by John Rofe, a specialist in fraud detection. His paper tells us: "The time has come for reality to displace the elaborate fiction created under the auspices of the United Nations directed climate change fraud. It has long been known that CO2 is colourless, odourless, non-toxic at atmospheric concentrations and essential for the survival of all life on earth. Further, more atmospheric CO2 means more plant food to help the greening of the planet. Less atmospheric CO2 means all plant life suffers because it is so essential to support photosynthesis. The charade of any political party that refers to itself as 'green' attempting to tax CO2 and thereby reduce its concentration is bizarre in the extreme". James Shaw should be ashamed of his role in this fraud." We recommend also the GSM video linked in the Rofe paper.
Telling how and why the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) originated, Dr Ed Berry writes in the U.S.: "IPCC and climate alarmists have abandoned the time-tested scientific method. They exclude evidence that proves their theory is wrong. This is 'confirmation bias' and it contradicts the scientific method. In true science, proof that a theory is wrong prevails over all opinions, consensus, and so-called evidence used to support the theory. The proof is simple. Simple inspection of IPCC’s 2013 report shows IPCC made gross errors in its calculation of the human carbon cycle."
Distinguished Canadian climate scientist, Professor Timothy Ball rebuts claims by an American group of medical doctors that "climate change" is a threat to human health.
As the world contemplates greater use of wind and solar power, two new papers from USA, find it would require five to 20 times more land than previously thought, and would warm average surface temperatures over the continental U.S. by 0.24 degrees C.
Greg Williams posts at Quadrant: "I am a mathematics teacher in a well-to-do school. Next year will be my fiftieth year in the profession. I am well known around the school as someone who hasn’t fallen for the CO2 swindle, although I have no problem with the notion that the various climates around the earth are changing in various ways. Being a mathematics teacher, the notion the mainstream media runs, that the earth has 'a climate', appals me. How can we can 'average' the multitude of climates around the earth and come up with 'the climate'? It does not compute." Read on to see what he explains to his students.
In the New Zealand Parliament, the Green Party has introduced a Bill known as the "Zero Carbon" Bill. It has passed its First Reading and been referred to the Environment Select Committee for public comment. Later this year, the Bill will have its Second Reading, at which stage the Opposition National Party is being urged to vote against it, thus putting the heat on Government Coalition partner, NZ First to decide whether the measure proceeds or goes no further. Our Climate Science Coalition chair, Hon Barry Brill has made a 5-part submission to the Select Committee urging it to recommend that the Bill is rejected:
"There are many real environmental problems, but the slow, gentle, net beneficial warming to be expected after correction of climate scientists’ long standing and costly error of physics is not among them. The panoply of climate rules, restrictions, taxes, imposts, conferences, speeches and treaties...
Distinguished UK commentator Matt Ridley writes in 'The Spectator': "Let nobody tell you that the second decade of the 21st century has been a bad time. We are living through the greatest improvement in human living standards in history. Extreme poverty has fallen below 10 per cent of the world’s population for the first time. It was 60 per cent when I was born. Global inequality has been plunging as Africa and Asia experience faster economic growth than Europe and North America; child mortality has fallen to record low levels; famine virtually went extinct; malaria, polio and heart disease are all in decline. Little of this made the news, because good news is no news."
When Al Gore coined the term "carbon footprint", he and his alarmist conspirators, in their evil desire to scare the populace, seized on using the term carbon as a synonym for carbon dioxide (CO2) knowing it would conjure up visions of soot, lamp black and coal dust, none of which were warm and fuzzy. Dr Jay Lehr and Tom Harris explain this attempted brainwashing.
The news media should be cautious about linking hurricane activity to global warming, according to National Hurricane Center Science and Operations Officer Chris Landsea, in a posting to WattsUpWith That.
In an Open Letter to the senior executives of NIWA, MBIE, Ministry for the Environment, Climate Change Commission, the NZTA, and all university vice-chancellors, Peter J Morgan, Honorary Chairman and CEO of Environomics (NZ) Trust, has written what he describes as "Irrevocable refutation of the UNIPCC’s ‘Climate Change’ hypothesis, that mankind’s increasing emissions of CO2 cause the atmosphere to warm up dangerously – known as Dangerous Anthropogenic Global Warming (DAGW)".
Australian geologist Peter Purcell produces evidence that many Pacific Islands, rather than sinking as claimed by climate alarmists and some money-hungry island leaders, are actually increasing in size due to a combination of the intrinsic nature of atolls and Pacific-area tectonic plate movements.
In a detailed and fully-referenced paper, Wellington researcher/analyst Barbara McKenzie has published a withering rebuttal of the New Zeaand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern's comments in a speech lauding ther passage in the NZ Parliament of the so-called Zero Carbon Bill.Ms McKenzie writes: "Jacinda Ardern calls [the bill] the 'nuclear moment for this generation." What she means, of course, is that Parliament is in effect nuking the New Zealand economy and the New Zealand environment on the back of what is frequently referred to as the greatest hoax in the history of science."Later in the paper, Ms McKenzie says any MP who claims to take an interest in the climate debate must know "Jacinda's speech was a pack of lies."
