CO2 To Hit 400ppm And We Are All Going To Die (Again)

atmospheric_co2

There is a chance that levels of atmospheric CO2 could exceed 400 ppm next month, according to readings from the US government’s Earth Systems Research laboratory in Mauna Loa, Hawaii.

So far this year hourly readings of 400 ppm have been recorded 6 times in the high Arctic, with such a symbolically important event about to happen the usual Green suspects have been begun wailing, and yes you guessed correctly, we are all going to die again.

In a wonderfully self-defeating story in the UK Guardian, Green evangelist John Vidal has heeded the call for CO2 hysteria: Read the rest of this entry

Is This The End For Hedegaard And The EU Emissions Trading Scheme

Comrade Connie gets it wrong again by jumping on the warming alarmist event attribution bandwagon

Things are starting to slide for unelected EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard, the rot set in prior to COP18 with EU officials saying that Hedegaards pushing for emissions cuts of 30% as fanciful thinking, next Hedegaard and her opposition to shale gas was ignored and now her plan to save the EU ETS has failed.

The European Unions climate change policy is at the point of collapse, the carbon floor price has crashed through the floor to an all time low of €2.63 a metric ton, after MEPs voted against “backloading” the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).

The EU ETS has been in crisis for years, there was a huge €5bn VAT fraud, then the computer systems were hacked and down for weeks, the price of carbon globally has been in free fall and backloading was the last ditch attempt to save the ETS.

Backloading is essentially withholding from sale 900 million carbon permits in an attempt to drive up the price of carbon which continues to fall due to the economic problems and decline in manufacturing in the EU.

Commissar Connie described backloading as “no brainer”, ignoring the obvious irony of such a statement, Hedegaard had put her all her political clout behind backloading, the rejection by the EU Parliament is a decisive blow to Hedegaard and the Green Agenda she relentlessly pushes.

2012 US Drought Was Not Caused By Climate Change

The summer of 2012 was one of the worst droughts in US history, Barack Obama and other prominent Greens said the drought was caused by Global Warming.

The summer of 2012 was one of the worst droughts in US history, Barack Obama and other prominent Greens said the drought was caused by Global Warming.

The summer of 2012 was one of the hottest on record, America’s corn belt was parched dry, frequent comparisons were to made to the Dust Bowl disasters of the 1930s, but unlike the 1930s this modern drought was hailed as further proof of the hand of man influencing the climate.

The Boy King Obama, facing re-election in November 2012 immediately attributed the drought to Anthropogenic Global Warming, the usual Green suspects rallied around the king, who then received even more support for his theory from such Hollywood scientific luminaries as Bette Midler, the guy with the squeaky voice, what’s his name, oh yeah Matt Damon and Barbra Streisand to name the most irritating but a few.

So the stage is set, the good and the Green have written the script,  another weather event caused by CO2 and man, further proof of man made climate change, but was the 2012 US drought really caused by Anthropogenic Climate Change? Read the rest of this entry

The Pitcairn Island Wind Farm Fiasco

Pitcairn Island in the South Pacific where the mutineers from the Bounty setteled

Pitcairn Island in the South Pacific where the mutineers from the Bounty settled

This is a classic case of government wasting tax payers money in an irresponsible way, all in the name of the International Aid Budget which currently stands at 0.7% of Britain’s GDP, and being Green.

Pitcairn Island is where the crew of HMAV Bounty settled, after casting the Captain of the Bounty, William Bligh adrift, the story has been immortalized in several Hollywood movies over the years so most people have some knowledge of the story.

The mutineers led by Fletcher Christian consisted of 8 British sailors, 6 Tahitian men, 11 Tahitian women, and 1 baby landed on Pitcairn in 1798 and remained there undiscovered until the US sealing ship Topaz visited the island in 1808. The people who landed in 1798 are the ancestors of today’s Pitcairn Islanders.

History is not sure what fate held became of  Fletcher Christian, he is alleged to have been brutally murdered on the island, other stories say that Christian made it back to England, though the logistics of doing this were nearly impossible at the time, for example today to travel to Pitcairn Island means flying to New Zealand, then taking 2 more flights and finally a 32 hour boat trip to reach the island, this place really does put the R in remote.

Pitcairn Island is a British Overseas Territory, a throw back to the days of the Empire, which means it receives priority foreign aid from the Foreign Aid budget, which is currently £43000 per islander. Estimates of the island population vary from 44 to 67, with 55 being the most popular, which is where the figure of £43000 comes from, considerably more than the average wage of £25000 in Britain.

On top of all the foreign aid money flowing in, the geniuses at the Department for International Development (DfID) decided that it was time for Green energy on Pitcairn Island and that a wind farm should be built: Read the rest of this entry

Green Success – Afghanistan Joins The Kyoto Protocol

Afghanistan now it has joined the Kyoto Protocol is an ideal environment for rich countries to invest in solar and wind farms, as this quite pastoral scene shows.

Afghanistan now it has joined the Kyoto Protocol is an ideal environment for rich countries to invest in solar and wind farms, as this quiet pastoral scene shows.

When this story first surfaced, the initial reaction was, April Fools day joke, how could a country with one of the lowest per capita emissions signing up to a treaty that expired on December 31st 2012 be hailed as a Green success story.

The world’s only treaty for fear of CO2, the Kyoto Protocol ended along with 2012 on December 31st, attempts to keep it alive at COP18 failed, an attempt at a new Kyoto 2 was ignored by most of the world, except the EU and grasping hands of the small islands states demanding their climate justice money.

All search engines confirm this story to be true, such is the state of decline of Big Green these days that a negligible emitter joining a now defunct treaty is a cause for celebration: Read the rest of this entry
