The Greens global campaign against fracking continues unabated with this latest flimsy story from the keyboard of Green junk journalist Suzanne Goldenberg at the Guardian where a very small town in Texas has apparently run out of water.
The story is actually over 2 months old, but in true Grauniad tradition has been dusted off and vaguely presented to appear as though the events are current and that the town is still dry.
To be honest, Goldenberg and yours truly have history, not in the biblical sense, but we have crossed swords on Twitter, the net result being that Goldenberg blocked me on Twitter from following her, or Tweeting with her, quite simply because I asked her question about one of her posts in the Grauniad. So in the interests of impartiality this is what Bishop Hill has to say about Goldenberg:
Meanwhile Roger Harrabin tweets a link to a story from the Guardian’s Suzanne Goldenberg, who enjoys a reputation for a less-than-diligent approach to truth and accuracy.
The story has naturally been resurrected in the light of David Cameron’s statement on Shale Gas at the weekend that “Britain cannot afford to miss out on Shale Gas”
Always one to keep her reputation intact Goldenberg is as always, true to form with this story: Read the rest of this entry
The problem for the Greens, Liberals and Socialists right now is that their Climate Change scam is melting away faster than their junk science computer models predicted the Arctic ice cap would, back in 2007 the Green peddlers of fear were predicting that the Arctic would be ice free, during the summer months no later than 2012.
As always this was just more Green wishful thinking and hoping for a real climate disaster, something to give their fear stories some legitimacy at last, the hope that one day the wolf they have cried for so many times will actually turn up and lay waste to a significant portion of our planet.
It is this immediate compulsion to cry wolf that has been a significant factor in the decline of Big Green, the failed prediction factor, the lack of any statistically significant warming for 17 years another, the truth coming out about the real costs of Green energy, the smug do what we say not what we do platitudes of the Champagne Celebrity Greens, and of course, observed empirical evidence which bears no relation to the warming predicted by their junk science computer models.
As the decline in Climate Religion carries on unabated the warmists are scratching around in the dirt looking for new ways to keep their scam alive and what better possible way could there be than another fear story? 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
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
