About a month ago Greenpeace went head to head with the Russian Coastguard, after being refused a permit to enter Russia’s Northern Sea Route, Greenpeace went anyway.
The Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise was boarded by 4 Russian Coast Guard officers who subjected the ship and its crew to a lengthy inspection, during the course of which the Captain of the Coast Guard ship told the Arctic Sunrise to leave the area immediately or strict measures would be used. For strict measures read the threat to open fire on the Greenpeace ship with real live ammunition, starting with a shot across the bows and if that didn’t work then incoming would be the order of the day.
The Arctic Sunrise slunk away, Green tail between its legs only to reappear today in the Pechora Sea off the northern coast of Russia with the intent of boarding the Prirazlomnaya rig, in a repeat of last years occupation protesting about drilling for oil in the Arctic. Read the rest of this entry
Dateline December 1st 2008 Poznan, Poland the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) 14th Conference of the Parties (COP) is underway.
The world 5 years ago was a vastly different place than it is today, fear of Anthropogenic Global Warming was still in the ascendancy, Al Gore and Rajendra Pachauri were taken seriously, fawning Liberal politicians hang on their every word, Green NGO’s like Greenpeace, WWF and FoE have the ear of politicians and their Green propaganda is included in IPCC Assessment reports as observed scientific fact.
The outcome of COP14 was as always with COP meetings the gateway to the big deal on Climate that was going to happen at the next COP meeting, in this case COP15 in Copenhagen.
As COP14 progressed there was no sign on the horizon of the gathering storms clouds of Climategate, the Greens, warming alarmists and Liberals were confident, the election of the Boy King Obama in the US was going to bring the impetus to force through the climate deal in Hopenhagen.
The Friends of the Earth International website for that day is upbeat and full of optimism: Read the rest of this entry
No warming for the last 17 years has had the warming alarmists and Greens running around like headless chickens in the search for something to attribute the “pause” in Anthropogenic Global Warming to, the current favourite contender is that somehow the missing warming has mysteriously sequestered itself away in the deep oceans, where it lies dormant, just waiting to reappear and fry us all.
A new study by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography and supported by the US Government’s National Oceans and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has found that the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) ocean circulatory system is the most likely cause.
A large number of people have heard of the El Niño and La Niña weather systems, for those that have not, and to put it simply El Niño brings warmer weather and La Niña brings cooler weather typically in cycles of just a few years, El Niño and La Niña are part of the PDO, which can last for decades bringing warmer or cooler weather.
The last cooling phase lasted from the 1940s – 1970s, a period of about 30 years, during which the time the warming alarmists, who at the time were cooling alarmists warned that we were all going to freeze to death. Read the rest of this entry
Greenpeace have just made a massive miscalculation of who to mess with in the Arctic, in this case Russia.
The story goes like this Greenpeace wanted to go the Northern Sea Route in Russia’s Arctic and protest, for that read, interrupt the search for oil and gas in the Arctic, the Arctic is reckoned to have 13% of the worlds undiscovered oil reserves and around 31% of the worlds undiscovered natural gas reserves.
Entry to the Northern Sea Route is by permit only, Greenpeace applied 3 times, and 3 times the Russians rejected the application, so the nobly motivated watermelons at Greenpeace decided they would ignore the lack of permit and go anyway.
A major miscalculation by Greenpeace, the old USSR might be gone, but the new Russia led by Comrade Putin is little changed from the USSR, now instead of the KGB, there are the incredibly rich oligarchs and Gazprom pulling the strings behind the scenes, with same the ruthlessness that the KGB once did. Democracy and free democratic protest is an anathema to Russians used to centuries of despotic rule by the Czars and 70 years of communist tyranny, and the sort of praise that Greenpeace gets in the west from fawning Liberal politicians is never going to happen in Russia.

The run up to United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Conference of the Parties (COP) like Christmas seems to begin earlier each year, and 2013 is no exception.
Absolutely anything that could be tenuously attributed to Anthropogenic Global Warming is being broadcast by the usual Green propaganda outlets, the UK Guardian is working flat out to keep the scam alive, the story about the dead polar bear on Svalbard, which according to the Guardian starved to death because of global warming, is typical of the shoddy journalism masquerading as Green propaganda, or is it shoddy Green propaganda masquerading as journalism?
Polar bears live on average between 15 – 18 years in the wild and the dead bear in question was 16 years old.
Last years COP18 meeting in Doha was the biggest COP failure yet, ever since the total failure of COP15, and Climategate in 2009 the whole UNFCCC has been in accelerating decline. Read the rest of this entry
Barack Obama is keeping up his campaign to fan the embers of the dying of Anthropogenic Global Warming boondoggle, this time with a Twitter campaign #ScienceSaysSo, this is presumably a reference to Obama’s very own science, a science that relies upon Liberal Green political consensus, rather than the real type of science that relies on observed empirical evidence.
Back in 2009 the science was settled for Obama, so 4 years down the road the science is even more settled.
As with all attempts to use social media to keep the fear of CO2 alive, the protagonists just end up preaching to the converted and attracting a lot of flack, just look at what has happened twice to Al Gore and his 24 hours of Climate Fantasy.
This latest failed attempt is unique in that apart from receiving a lot of attention from people who don’t buy into the man made climate change meme, it also attracted criticism from Lady Gaga’s fans: Read the rest of this entry
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
Ask not for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for the UN Climate
process scam boondoggle which has been in terminal decline since the massive failure of COP15 in Copenhagen, back in 2009.
Since then each successive COP meeting has been a more spectacular car crash than it’s predecessors, the last COP18 saw the end of the Kyoto Protocol and no real successor to the only global treaty on emissions. In a desperate attempt to achieve something the COP18 President, Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah forced a number of measures through as the meeting was closing, that post COP18 have subsequently caused way more problems than they solved at the time.
Ignoring the observed empirical evidence of the COP18 failure the EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard wrote a long article for the UK Guardian on December 14th 2012 claiming that COP18, was in fact a success, it was just the success was hiding in the deep oceans with the missing warming, or something like that.
Comrade Connie had this to say: Read the rest of this entry
Here we go again, a new Armageddon prediction from warming alarmist central about the Arctic, this time our children won’t know what Arctic ice was in 2058, or will they?
And what does an ice free Arctic really mean anyway?
More on that later, for now back to warming alarmist failed predictions.
Back in 2007 Jay Zwally, a NASA Climate Scientist predicted the Arctic would be ice free in the Summer of 2012, the summer of 2012 came and the Arctic stubbornly refused to lose all it’s ice. This is despite increasing levels of atmospheric CO2, which the Greens have been telling us for years will cause planetary meltdown.
The Greens and warming alarmists have an unenviable record of never being right with their predictions, to date not one Green prediction of doom and gloom has come to pass.
As each prediction fails so the date for the next Armageddon is pushed back further into the future, Green fingers are crossed that this time they will be correct and millions of people will die, and they will have been vindicated.
Slippage in Armageddon events is a tactic beloved of the Greens, and most especially the railway engineer Rajendra Pachuari, head of the UN IPCC, for whom slippage is an art form: Read the rest of this entry
