The BBC Preaches Climate Change In The Day Of The Triffids And The UK Met Office Get It Wrong Again

BBC manage to put Climate Change propaganda into anything

Nothing is safe from the Church of Climatology’s believers, including remakes of John Wyndham’s classic the Day of the Triffids. The BBC have done a  remake of Day of the Triffids, part 1 was shown last night, with part 2 tonight. As a child Aardvark enjoyed the 1950’s film with Howard Keel, so a new version with modern day effects has got to be better, well in theory anyway.

The BBC version is loosely based on the book, in so much as most people are blind and there are big mobile flesh eating plants everywhere. The CGI effects are very good and it was throughly enjoyable until suddenly the reason for the Triffids was Climate Change, specifically Global Warming. A quick pause and replay confirmed that the AGW lie was being pushed by the BBC not only in fact, but also in fiction; which is where Anthropogenic Global Warming belongs anyway.
The Triffids are now being farmed as they produce clean oil, this was cited in the script as the farming of Triffids stopped the burning of fossil fuels and thus caused an end to Global Warming, the script then continued to say that the cessation of burning fossil fuels has caused Global Cooling, which is ironic to say the very least.

Later on it is again repeated that the human race is this mess because of Global Warming/Climate Change; the Church of Climatology spreads it’s message of fear not only in debunked science but also in fiction the message is being preached.

The BBC is known for broadcasting Sophisticated Government Climate Change Propaganda in the guise of pseudo scientific fact, what is a very rapid step up, is the attempted indoctrination  of the AGW lie in works of fiction, expect more.

The Met Office whose predictions about impending doom in 2050 have dropped their second predictive clanger of the year, it’s going to be a mild winter.

April 30th 2009 Met Office predict barbecue summer

July 29th 2009 Met Office admits “barbecue summer is off”

October 2009 Met Office predict that Britain will have milder than average winter

December 2009 It’s colder than it has been for years

This is the Met Office who can’t predict the weather 3 months in advance without being 100% wrong, how can their predictions for 40 years from now be taken seriously?

Climategate – Re-examining The Anthropogenic Global Warming Issue And How AGW Propaganda Works

This is a guest post from Dr Leonard Weinstein, ScD on the Air Vent Blog

The following is an effort to reduce the AGW issue to a minimum number of necessary claims to support or reject. When I read of “thousands of supporting papers” on the issue, I would like to hear what these papers show that refutes the following:

The issue of anthropogenic global warming and its consequence arose from several factors. The obvious three main factors that prompted the issue coming up were:

The global average temperature has been rising noticeably since about 1850 (with obvious results of glaciers melting, sea level rising, etc)

The atmospheric CO2 concentration has been increasing significantly since it was first accurately measured in 1958, and proxies indicate the main part of the rise started about 1850. This rise seems to be clearly related to human burning of fossil fuels.

There is a theoretical basis for the fact that CO2 is a major greenhouse gas and contributes to the surface temperature level.

The Intelligent Essays blog has a really good post on Anthropogenic Global Warming propaganda:

Scholars have written volumes explaining the techniques and methodology of propagandists for hundreds of years. To propagandize, one need only read a how-to manual to learn the concepts of an effectively run propaganda campaign. Propaganda techniques include appealing to fear, appealing to authority, name-calling, transference, bandwagoning, obtaining disapproval, over simplification, utilizing virtue words, employing faulty logic and more. AGW proponents utilize all of these methods to further their goals, which will be discussed later.

Appealing to fear is perhaps the strongest technique used by propagandists. Hitler’s Propaganda Minister, Goebbels exploited and motivated the German population by striking fear into them. Likewise, propagandists have attempted to use the fear factor to get the media’s attention and gain front-page real estate. Headlines such as “Scientists fear global warming higher than expected” are designed to make the audience cringe with fear when they read that earth’s average temperature could rise by 7.8°C by 2300 with polar ice caps melting and seas rising by seven meters.3 Nearly every report concerning global warming is laced with calamitous consequences if something is not done soon. This type of propaganda is effective in catching readers’ attention and motivating them to some action.

Climategate – Copenhagen IPCC Boss Dr Rajendra Pachauri Says “Climategate Is All Lies”

Dr Rajendra Pachauri

The chairman of the IPCC Dr Rajendra Pachauri has produced his nothing to see here defence to the Climategate emails, this was the defence used by suspended Penn State scientist Michael Mann in the Washington Post at the weekend.

James Delingpole in the Telegraph:

Surely not even an organisation as a corrupt and dishonest as the IPCC can afford to keep Dr Rajendra Pachauri on as its chairman after the weekend’s damning revelations by Christopher Booker and Richard North?

But Pachauri – with all the chutzpah we have come to expect of our favourite jetsetting, millionaire, troll-impersonating railway engineer – is not going down without a fight. Just as he did after Climategate, Pachauri has produced his classic ‘nothing to see here’ ‘Big Brother knows best’ defence.

In an interview with the Times of India he says:

‘‘These are a pack of lies from people who are getting desperate. They want to go after the guy whose voice is being heard. I haven’t pocketed a single penny from my association with companies and institutes. All honoraria that I get goes to TERI and to its Light a Billion Lives campaign for reaching solar power to people without electricity. All my dealings are totally above board.’’

Climategate – Copenhagen Daily Express: “Gordon Brown The Climate Nut Who Will Ruin Britain”

Climategate is gathering pace as more mainstream media starts to report, and reflect the true depth of UK public feeling about the UN Climate Change circus in Copenhagen.

Almost upon arrival Brown was bragging he would plunge the UK further into debt to buy his place as a World Statesman. When Ethopia suggested Global Socialism as the panacea for Climate Change, Brown was immediately up and supporting them.

In today’s Daily Express they let rip about “Climate Nut” Brown:

GORDON Brown was yesterday accused of signing a £500billion death warrant for Britain’s economy in his desperate quest for a climate change deal.

The Prime Minister has offered a dramatic 42 per cent cut to 1990 levels of carbon dioxide emissions by the year 2020.

His pledge – the biggest reduction proposed by any western industrialised nation – was made despite a continuing debate about whether mankind is to blame for climate change.

Ignoring the dire state of the country’s finances and record Government borrowing figures announced yesterday, Mr Brown has already pledged to hand over £7.5billion to an international fund to help poorer countries cope with climate change.

He made the 42 per cent offer in a bid to give the flagging talks in Copenhagen a fresh impetus with world leaders, including US President Barack Obama, trying to find a face-saving formula on the last day.

If he succeeds, he will be able to claim that he saved the planet much as he boasted of having “saved the world” over the banking crisis.

Which is pretty much what this blog and many other blogs world wide have been saying for the last 2 weeks.

Climategate – Copenhagen Its A Failure

Breaking news from Reuters:

EU is unhappy with whats on the table and cannot accept it.

Indian environment minister says “close to signing a non binding deal”

Breaking news from Reuters

Looks like Climategate has taken it’s toll and a window dressing exercise is in place for major face-saving and cover up of the lies of Michael Mann, CRU, IPCC and all the others from the global socialist movement.

A big thankyou to Chavez for letting the socialist cat out of the bag, Copenhagen has really shown the hidden agenda of the eco-mentalists.

Climategate – Copenhagen Sarkozy Warns Of Disaster At COP15 Summit And Jonah Brown Is Confident

One the leading supporters of Global Socialism Nicolas Sarkozy is warning of disaster at Copenhagen if no agreement is reached. The disaster Sarkozy is warning of is not the fraudulent Climate Change lie actually coming true, any pretence of Climate Change having been blown away by Chavez, the President of Ethiopia, Sarkozy and Brown. Talk is now of developed nations guilt, redistribution of wealth and one world intrusive Socialist government.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy has warned fellow world leaders that the UN climate talks are heading for disaster unless they move into “top gear”.

With just one day to go to reach a global climate change deal, Mr Sarkozy said failure would be “catastrophic for all of us”.

“All of us, we will have to account for our actions to world public opinion, and our national public opinion,” he said at the Copenhagen summit.

“We are not here to convene a conference on global warming, we are here to make decisions.”

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, however, was upbeat about the prospect of reaching a deal.

He said a new finance offer from the US meant the UN summit was “absolutely” more than halfway to securing an agreement.

Interesting use of “absolutely” by Brown, the curse of Jonah Brown will strike in Copenhagen; Climategate has discredited the science of Anthropogenic Global Warming and the ship of fools in Copenhagen would do well to shut up and wait for real science to show if indeed there is a problem, or that AGW was simply a means to redistribute wealth and arrive at a one world socialist government by the back door.

Updated 18th December 2009 01:25 GMT

The big news is that the grand alliance pushing global warming alarmism and energy-rationing policies has started to break apart here in a spectacular way. The official United Nations global warming bureaucracy has thrown out the twenty to thirty thousand environmentalists who traveled to Copenhagen to attend the meeting as officially-accredited delegates of non-governmental organizations (or NGOs). The environmentalists are extremely angry and have every justification for being angry.

This is potentially momentous because the two wings of alarmism are totally dependent on one another. The UN’s Kyoto bandwagon has been pushed along by the environmental movement and no new treaty to follow the Kyoto Protocol, when it expires at the end of 2012, will have a chance of being adopted without the continuing and unremitting backing of the environmentalists whom the U.N. has unceremoniously booted out this week. For the environmental groups, Kyoto and its successor treaty are the only viable vehicles for achieving their goals of reducing emissions and putting the world on an energy starvation diet.

Climategate – Copenhagen Gordon Brown Speaks To COP15 Summit And Ignores Climategate And UK Public Opinion

It is worth remembering that what is behind this speech is One World Socialist Government, Brown will push the UK further in to debt so he can establish himself as a World Statesman and such is his contempt for UK voters he says the 58% that don’t believe in Climate Change are “flat earthers

Climategate discredited the science behind Climate Change, the scientists, the IPCC, CRU, the data and the message of Anthropogenic Global Warming; for the first week they tried to brazen it out and pretend it was business as usual.

More stories surfaced about selective use of data from only the warmest Russian weather stations, Al Gore made a complete idiot of himself twice and finally yesterday Ethiopia let the proverbial cat out of the bag: Global Socialism supported of course by Gordon Brown and EUSSR socialist Sarkozy.

Copenhagen was never about Climate Change, that was just a smokescreen, the real agenda is One World Socialist Government and wealth redistribution by the back door.

President Chavez brought the house down.

When he said the process in Copenhagen was “not democratic, it is not inclusive, but isn’t that the reality of our world, the world is really and imperial dictatorship…down with imperial dictatorships” he got a rousing round of applause.

When he said there was a “silent and terrible ghost in the room” and that ghost was called capitalism, the applause was deafening.

The true hallmarks of Socialism, lies, deceit, wealth redistribution, a hair shirt existence for the majority and the privileged existence of the Socialist Elite. The UK has had experience of the Labour Party socialist elite: Baroness Scotland for example

The socialists close ranks, change rules and ignore the laws they pass.

Climategate – 100 Reasons Why Climate Change Is Natural

The Daily Express caught Aardvark off guard this morning, with a story about Climate Change that does not support the flawed science that is being so heavily pushed in Denmark right now.

The mainstream media in the UK has largely blacked out Climategate, with the exception of James Delingpole at the Telegraph, who has been relentless in exposing the AGW lie. All other Climategate coverage has been righteous indignation at the non-believers, which has been a double edged sword for the warmists as they report the story from their angle; it also exposes the story to other interpretations.

A hat tip to the Express for this article:

The report, by the respected European Foundation, also argues that a higher level of carbon dioxide (CO2) – the main greenhouse gas – is not a problem because it helps to boost crop yields.

And it claims that the warming we are now experiencing is “mostly natural”, pointing to historic shifts in the climate such as when Vikings farmed on Greenland in medieval times.

Political analyst Jim McConalogue, who wrote the report, said: “This demonstrates how tenuous, improper and indeed false the scientific and political claims are for man-made global warming, from claims that climate change can be controlled by human activity to the proposition that CO2 emissions represent a severe threat to our way of life, when in fact there is little evidence to support any of these claims.”

In a linked article the Express continues with:

HERE are the 100 reasons, released in a dossier issued by the European Foundation, why climate change is natural and not man-made:

1) There is “no real scientific proof” that the current warming is caused by the rise of greenhouse gases from man’s activity.

2) Man-made carbon dioxide emissions throughout human history constitute less than 0.00022 percent of the total naturally emitted from the mantle of the earth during geological history.

3) Warmer periods of the Earth’s history came around 800 years before rises in CO2 levels.

4) After World War II, there was a huge surge in recorded CO2 emissions but global temperatures fell for four decades after 1940.

5) Throughout the Earth’s history, temperatures have often been warmer than now and CO2 levels have often been higher – more than ten times as high.

6) Significant changes in climate have continually occurred throughout geologic time.

7) The 0.7C increase in the average global temperature over the last hundred years is entirely consistent with well-established, long-term, natural climate trends.

8)The IPCC theory is driven by just 60 scientists and favourable reviewers not the 4,000 usually cited.

9) Leaked e-mails from British climate scientists – in a scandal known as “Climate-gate” – suggest that that has been manipulated to exaggerate global warming

10) A large body of scientific research suggests that the sun is responsible for the greater share of climate change during the past hundred years.

The question that still remains unanswered is why given all the question marks over the validity of science and the findings do certain politicians like Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and Ed Milliband in the UK say the flawed science does not matter press on regardless.

Climategate – 12 Out Of 13 Scientists Dont Believe In Climate Change

Warmist scientist Professor Mark Maslin is as confused about the IPCC as Nick Cohen, Maslin thinks 5000 leading climate sciencetists are in the IPCC.

Maslin loses heavily and behaves true to Church of Climatology form as he loses the argument.

There May Be a Consensus – Just Not The One You Were Told, 12 out of 13 scientists agree: Global Warming Is A Hoax

Climategate – I love the smell of unfounded science in the morning. It smells like greenbacks. One day this scam is going to end…..

I love the smell of unfounded science in the morning. It smells like greenbacks. Once day this scam is going to end......

Six Republicans who sit on the Senate Commerce Committee are calling on its chairman, John D. Rockefeller IV, Democrat of West Virginia, to investigate the recently leaked e-mails from climate scientists for evidence of data manipulation.

In a letter dated Decmeber 8th, the Republicans assert that the committee “needs to provide confirmation that American taxpayer dollars are not being misused,” and open a bipartisan investigation into an episode that some are calling Climategate.

The senators signing the letter are Sam Brownback of Kansas, John Ensign of Nevada, Johnny Isakson of Georgia, Jim DeMint of South Carolina, David Vitter of Louisiana and Roger Wicker of Mississippi.

The letter states:

A number of federal and independent scientists receiving federal funds are included in the e-mails and documents. There is clearly more information that federal researchers and researchers receiving federal funds could provide to the committee.
The American people deserve to know that federal scientific funding is not being used to distort science to reach a political end.

The letter also makes reference to one of Aardvark’s favourite emails from now suspended CRU head Phil Jones

“PS: l’m getting hassled by a couple of people to release the CRU station temperature data. Don’t
any of you three tell anybody that the UK has a Freedom of Information Act!”

Now why would any honest scientist try to the hide the fact the UK has a Freedom Of Information Act?
