A Week in Green Warming Alarmist World – Communism, Fear and Blame

The-Greens

If 2013 was the worst for the Big Green Machine since records began, then 2014 is rapidly shaping up to be an even worse year with the Green decline slipping into hyper drive as more politicians run away from the Green Agenda.

There have been far too many Green stories to write about all of them so here goes with a weekly roundup.

First off the blocks is Christiana Figueres head of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) who thinks that the only answer to stop the global warming that isn’t happening is Communism. Figueres is a long time communist and protegé of the late Hugo Chavez, and was among those that cheered Chavez’s infamous COP15 silent and terrible ghost in the room speech which referred to capitalism and democracy.

Being Green is all about blame and fear, blaming someone or something so that you have something to fear, bread and butter to the warming alarmist industry. So no surprises then in a new Green report they have finally decided on a country to blame for Global Warming Read the rest of this entry

The Global Warming Boondoggle Pantomime To Tragedy

It was all so rosy in 1988 for the Agrarian Society lovers, however 25 years of symbolic politics has ended in Tragedy for Gaia.

It was all so rosy in 1988 for the Agrarian Society lovers, however 25 years of symbolic politics has ended in Tragedy for Gaia.

The warming alarmists, Greens and Liberals are in a mixed state of consternation and incredulity that the world has not stopped turning since the release of the IPCC’s Fifth Assessment Report (AR5).

The Green scammers were over the moon with the PR for the report, which says something completely different to the findings, so the IPCC released the bad news first so that the Green propaganda machine could go into overdrive with the fear message, yet again.

We are over the peak. Years late, the IPCC concedes some territory and wears headlines they must hate (“Global warming is just HALF what we said“, “We got it wrong on warming“), but PR still rules, and in the big game, this will quickly spin to a minor bump. It’s a classic technique to release “the bad news” before the main report, to clear the air for the messages the agents want to stick.

The trouble is there has not been a lot PR message sticking, world leaders have mostly ignored the report, unless of course they stand to get their grasping hands on some climate justice money.

The stark naked reality of the situation has not been lost on warming alarmist Dr Christopher Shaw, who has impeccable warmist credentials like the Grantham Institute and the Climate Crunch project: Read the rest of this entry

COP19 Hosts Poland And The Green Standoff With The EU

COP19 hosts Poland are still refusing to take notice of pointless EU leading the way environmental legislation.

COP19 hosts Poland are still refusing to take notice of pointless EU leading the way Green economic suicide legislation

In the late 1940’s and early 1950’s there was a particularly  cringe making  genre of film called the Musical Western, these movies for a while were very popular, but eventually the camp clothing, the ludicrous plot lines proved too much for audiences, who drifted away from the fad.

Sounds familiar?

Well it should, in the last decade of the 20th Century and the first decade of the 21st Century there was a fad for Climate Religion where the same hair shirt clothing and ludicrous plot lines proved too much for the audience, who drifted away from the fad.

At least the Musical Western had the decency to just fade away from the screens, unlike the UN Climate Process which annually makes a spectacle of its continuing and agonizing death throes, last years event Fear and Loathing in Doha was one of the best Green disaster movies of all time, this year’s event in Poland is set to trump Doha in spades.

When Poland was chosen as COP19 hosts, at COP18 the wailing and whingeing from the Greens started and has continued unabated ever since. The Greens are less than impressed with the COP19 website which is neither Green nor extreme enough for them, Poland has a history of being obstructive to Green plans for economic suicide and most ironically for the Greens, the political consensus on the stupidity of Green measures is shared by both the Left and the Right.

The Green Madness Of Connie Hedegaard – Make Your Own Climate

A world you like. With a climate you like, according to Commissar Connie and her dwindling band of Green followers the human race can pick and choose the weather by simply believing in climate religion.

A world you like. With a climate you like, according to unelected EU Climate Commissar Connie and her dwindling band of Green followers the human race can pick and choose the climate by simply believing in climate religion .

The ongoing decline of Green climate religion is creating some absurd scenarios that are continuing to cost the citizens of EU prosperity, affordable energy and jobs as the Green boondoggle comes apart, the most absurd is not actually the notion that the human race can selectively pick the weather of its own choosing, and ultimately the climate, but, the massive policy confusion inside the EU Commissariat on Climate Change.

The dawn of realisation that nobly leading the way to a Green economic disaster is not an example the rest of the world has any intention of following has dawned on finance ministers in the Brussels Kremlin, but has been missed completely ignored by Comrade Connie and her new friend, Britain’s Climate Change Fool Ed Davey, for whom every day is Groundhog day 2008, with a prosperous Green economy, zillions of Green jobs, electric cars, and a European landscape covered with Green religious symbols monuments to Green folly aka wind turbines.

In the run up to COP18 last November, Hedegaard was pushing fear stories of global climatic apocalypse using the much beloved and completely erroneous, warmist science of event attribution and muttering darkly about the human race being able to select the climate of its own choosing.

Well today sees the launch of an EU campaign, doubtless costing untold millions, called #worldulike the campaign slogan being “A world you like with a climate you like“, there is no mention yet on the web site of turning base metals into gold, but it can only be a question of time: Read the rest of this entry

The Great Climate Change Scam – The Decline In A Month Is Incredible

Our children will not know what a wind turbine was

Our children will not know what a wind turbine was

Having had a month off blogging and really taking no  interest, in the news or the warming alarmists due to being very busy relocating, the decline of the AGW scam is quite amazing, when you read loads of new stories everyday you tend not to particularly notice the gradual decline, until some major event like Climategate or another UNFCC COP failure happens.

The old saying goes that a week in politics is a long time, well a month in the Anthropogenic Global Warming industry equates to several years of decline, as the move away from Green foolishness and stupidity accelerates in the last bastion of the Church of Climatology, Europe.

David Cameron and his “Greenest Government Ever” in Britain are being told to listen to Climate Change Skeptics, by none other than George Eustice MP, Dave’s very own Climate Change Adviser:

He said: “I am personally persuaded that there is a link between carbon emissions and climate change but it is essential that all perspectives in this argument are heard.

“I don’t like the way that legitimate, yet contrarian scientific opinion on the issue has been rubbished or ridiculed. Sometimes those who believe in climate change have foolishly undermined their own case.”

Eustice is like all the politicians, still hedging their political bets by saying they are personally persuaded in the existence of the big bad CO2 wolf that is so often summoned, yet never comes, while preparing to advise the British Government to implement policies that go directly against their personal persuasions, Read the rest of this entry

Ed Davey “Climate Change Science Is Irrefutable”

Liberal Democrat Climate Fool Ed Davey believes that Climate Science if irrefutable.

Liberal Democrat Climate Fool Ed Davey believes that Climate Science is irrefutable.

This would be funny, or possibly just plain boring if it were one of the usual Green suspects like Ban Ki-Moon, Connie Hedegaard, Christiana Figueres or one the banshee wailing NGO’s, instead it is a British Government minister who has a very big say in the energy mix and energy security of Britain.

Ed Davey is the replacement Liberal Democrat Climate Change secretary in the lack lustre coalition government that is currently compounding the damage done to the country by the previous Labour Regime of Tony Blair and Gordon Brown.

Davey’s predecessor as Climate Change secretary, Liberal Democrat Chris Huhne has gone, guilty of the serious crime of Perverting the Course of Justice, Huhne is currently awaiting what is most likely a custodial prison sentence.

Huhne in his day was a formidable politician, a devout member of the Church of Climatology, at the annual UN Climate Circus meetings Huhne could usually be found with his nose up Connie Hedegaard’s butt, busily trying to give away more money that Britain did not have.

Davey by comparison to Huhne is a glove puppet, more akin to one operated by a limp wristed puppeteer come to think of it, Davey is a political lightweight so it is not surprising he should choose to make his irrefutable science claims to an audience of the converted: Read the rest of this entry

EU Needs To Cut Emissions 40% By 2020 To Provide Climate Leadership

EU Commission President  Jose Manual Barroso wants Europe to lead the way in committing economic suicide.

EU Commission President Jose Manual Barroso wants Europe to lead the way in committing economic suicide by 2030.

Different day, same tired old Green propaganda being pushed relentlessly by another unelected European Official, this time EU Commission President Jose Manual Barroso.

Barroso like other EU and Liberal Socialist politicians is still locked into the Green bubble, inconvenient truths like no warming for 16 years, the repetitive failure of UNFCCC cop meetings, the death of the one and only climate treaty, the Kyoto Protocol, the lack of a successor to Kyoto, the lack of populist support for bold climate measures are all ignored as the Green elite repeat their meaningless sound bites of Green drivel.

On this occasion the climate robot had a USB memory stick inserted with the sound bites: 2°C Warming, Green economy, Green jobs, emissions cut, 40%, control the weather (constrain warming) preloaded and then suitably prefixed with approved Greenspeak: Read the rest of this entry

There Is No Link Between Rising Temperatures And Increased Rainfall

Anyone who lives in, or has visited Britain in the last 6 months will be aware that it has rained here a lot, the 40 days and nights of biblical misery does not even come close to the amount of rain that has fallen on the country.

No doubt about it, 2012 was one of the wettest years ever recorded, another potentially doom laden record that has naturally been grabbed by the doomsayers of Climate Change religion as irrefutable proof of Anthropogenic Global Warming.

Viewers of Sky News last night were treated to a warmist scientist pontificating about the endless rain being caused by Climate Change and rising temperatures, while conveniently ignoring the fact that even the UK Met Office has acknowledged, global temperatures have remained static for the last 16 years: Read the rest of this entry

Wind Turbine Fail, Service Life Is Just 50% Of That Quoted By The Wind Industry

Latest peer reviewed study proves that the life of a bird chopper is 10 - 15 years not the 20 -25 years spun by the renewables industry and used by politicians.

Latest peer reviewed study proves that the life of a bird chopper is 10 – 15 years not the 20 -25 years spun by the renewables industry and used by politicians for planning.

The case against wind turbines was already proven, intermittency or the inability to provide and meet demand for electricity is bad enough, as is the problem for renewables that they need to have a fossil fuel or nuclear power station on standby because of the intermittency issue, now a peer reviewed study by the Renewable Energy foundation has disclosed another major failing of wind power, the turbines actual serviceable life in roughly half that of the life span quoted by the manufacturers.

The study was carried out by Professor Gordon Hughes of the University of Edinburgh, one of Britain’s leading energy and environmental economists, using years of data from wind farms in both Britain and Denmark.

The findings are yet another embarrassment for the whole Green renewable energy boondoggle and has serious financial implications for energy bill payers who are already propping up the renewables industry via the ever increasing Green subsidies on energy bills: Read the rest of this entry

EU Green Agenda Fail – Carbon Capture And Storage

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is another Green technology that is being currently pushed very hard so we can all be saved from Anthropogenic Global Warming.

CCS like all the Green Dream technologies is very expensive, requires huge tax payer funded subsidies and is the usual mix of environmental tokenism and gesture politics that so typifies the Greens.

Britain’s last CCS project was cancelled in October 2011 after the companies involved Scottish Power, Shell and the National Grid, pulled out citing funding issues, in short they wanted more Green subsidies to make the project financially viable, the typical refrain for all things Green, more taxes and ever increasing energy bills.

Never one to let anything deflect her from her Green Agenda, the EU’s unelected Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard and the other european Green fools held a contest to provide funding for CCS: Read the rest of this entry
