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.
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.

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
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
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
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
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
