The Greens and Liberals whose default state is outrage have had a lot to be outraged about recently, the death of Australia’s ill conceived carbon tax and the lack of enthusiasm for UN Secretary General Ban ki-moon’s Climate Summit in September which is being held in New York.
India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi is one of many world leaders who will not be attending Ban ki-moon’s Climate Summit.
India is the third largest emitter of the life giving CO2 that the warming alarmists fear so much, consequently the Green outrage at Modi’s snub to Ban ki-moon has reached fever pitch.
Now the Asian Development Bank has produced a report predicting Green Armageddon in South Asia unless India gets on board with the UN program: Read the rest of this entry
One thing you can be absolutely sure of, globally, there will be a huge number of outraged Greens and warming alarmists because Australia has dumped it’s carbon tax.
This as the saying goes really is a double whammy, Australian PM Tony Abbott is a politician who has actually kept his word and dumped the hugely unsuccessful and deeply unpopular Carbon Tax, that Labor PM Julia Gillard promised voters she would never introduce, and then promptly broke her word.
The Carbon Tax was ill conceived, it generated virtually no revenue because of its negative impact on productivity and led directly to the downfall of the Gillard Labor/Green coalition, so it wasn’t all bad really.
Alarm bells will be sounding across the Green world as those that believe that crippling Green taxation will allow the human race to select a climate of its own choosing, can see their belief system about to come crashing down. In the immortal words of EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard “A world you like. With a climate you like“, delusional thinking even by 15th Century standards, frankly bizarre in the 21st Century.
The response from the Green rent seekers, crony capitalists, left wing politicians and others complicit in the AGW scam has been, well what you would expect really: Read the rest of this entry
The 20th century successors to the failed dictator Napoleon Bonaparte, the EU are having their retreat from Moscow moment, as EU Climate Policy comes apart, quite literally at the seams.
The Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard, Greens, Liberals and other beneficiaries of the warming alarmist industry are pushing hard for binding targets for renewable energy for 2030, while on the other side of the argument countries, industry and politicians are against binding targets.
Just before the UNFCCC COP19 climate circus in Warsaw last year, Hedegaard sort of admitted that the EU Climate Policy was not supported by all member states and that some countries are no longer taking part, for example the Czech Republic and Poland, the COP19 hosts. Poland is currently involved in a legal standoff with the EU, which if the EU lost would totally destroy EU Climate Policy in a single stroke. Read the rest of this entry
The dust has settled on COP19, mega quantities of Green Turd polish have failed to disguise the fact that COP19 was yet another dismal failure for the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
COP19 was most the divided COP meeting so far, with the Green NGOs and the other self appointed representatives of “Civil Society“ staging a walk out, followed soon afterwards by the Venezuelan vice minister Claudia Salerno accusing Connie Hedegaard of damaging not only COP19, but COP15 as well.
The reality of the collapse of the Global Warming Boondoggle has at last percolated through to the highest levels of the UNFCCC and according to the 3 past and present leaders of the UN wealth redistribution scheme the future is far from bright: Read the rest of this entry
The bad news for the warming alarmist movement continues apace, as hot on the heels of the IPCC AR5 report crashing and burning on the indifference of politicians across the planet come 4 more bad news stories for those that have an irrational fear of CO2 and Western Industrialized society.
One of the cornerstones of the Climate Scam is the Green Climate Fund (GCF), the UN wealth redistribution scheme to give away US $100 billion annually to developing countries to mitigate climate change brought about by the evil West developing industrialized society.
In a letter to the board members of the GCF, 133 NGOs from developing countries called for the adoption of a robust environmental and social framework through which the GFC could operate.
They wrote: “developed countries are obligated to provide the necessary finance to enable affected peoples to deal with climate impacts, build resilience, and shift to more sustainable, equitable low carbon development pathways.
There has been no warming for 17 years, severe weather events are at an all time low, even the UK Guardian has had to admit the 2013 Hurricane season has been flat, the scam has unraveled, not one single Green Armageddon event has yet happened, and Green NGOs are talking of obligations.
The UN IPCC have already admitted that they plan to redistribute the world’s wealth by Climate Policy. Read the rest of this entry
Britain’s Climate Change fool is at it again, this time Ed Davey is telling the country that wind and solar will keep the lights on when 20% of Britain’s power stations close by the end of the decade.
Writing in Liberal Democrat Voice Davey then drags out the well worn Green jobs lie, Green jobs have not happened anywhere in the world thus far, but don’t worry because Britain will buck the trend and millions of lasting Green jobs will be created because a Green ideologue says so.
Naturally consumers will be better off as well, as Davey predicts that 30% of Britain’s energy mix will be funded by taxpayers in the form of Green subsidies for wind, solar and all the other economically non viable renewable energy schemes that Big Green see as the future.

Julia Gillard’s Labor regime in Australia is in deep political trouble because Gillard lied to voters, when she was elected Gillard promised she would not implement a carbon tax, a promise she promptly broke.
Gillard is no different from any other politician, it’s all about power, and the way Gillard managed to hang on to power was to do a deal with the Australian Green Party, the price of this deal a Carbon Tax and Gillard reneging on her promise to voters.
The Carbon Tax has been popular with voters, about as popular as a skunk in an elevator, 65% of Australian voters are against it, and despite Gillard offering bribes to business and voters the carbon tax is showing no sign of becoming popular anytime soon. The Labor party suffered a massive defeat in the March 2012 Queensland elections, and currently polling indicates a similar outcome is very likely in the Federal Election this coming September.
