“If is the middle word in life” said Marlon Brando’s character Colonel Kilgore in the movie Apocalypse Now.
Generations of computer programmers know If is a conditional, as in the conditional If, used in many programming languages, only in warming alarmist world are conditionals an absolute, where if and could, are actually synonyms for will.
When you couple this skewing of language with vested interests reporting on vested interests, you end up with the a classic Green non story like “Value of coal assets ‘could be halved’ if world goes low-carbon“.
Conditionals are of course based upon probability, and obviously there is a chance that the entire world could decide to believe the Green meme, leave fossil fuel reserves in the ground and decide to follow a dimly lit future based upon intermittent Green approved energy generation.
The big question, is it likely? Read the rest of this entry
The whole world has had a chance to have a long laugh at the antics of a bunch of warming alarmists scientists and Green propagandists from the BBC and The Guardian getting trapped in Antarctic sea ice.
The stupidity and religious belief in their own propaganda got these Green fools into a mess of their own making, which has happily ended with no loss of life or injury, just a huge amount of carbon pollution from dirty ships bunker fuel, and aviation emissions from the Chinese helicopter that rescued the fools.
The explanations as to why the ice was so thick have ranged from the ludicrous “Sea ice is disappearing due to climate change but here it is building up“, once the global laughter had died down Turney admitted it was weather not climate that had caused the huge build up in Antarctic sea ice.
So the big question is are we headed for a new ice age? Read the rest of this entry
The pre-COP silly season is well underway with all outlets of the Global Warming industry spreading doom, gloom, fear and trying desperately to find non existent heat in the deep oceans.
No run up to a UNFCCC COP meeting would complete without some predictions of Armageddon from the head of the UNFCCC Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Rajendra Pachauri.
The head of the IPCC is not a climate scientist, nor indeed any form of scientist, Pachauri is by profession a railway engineer and a part time soft core porn novel writer, with a long track record of making failed predictions of when the 4 Green horsemen of Apocalypse will arrive.
Now in Pachauri world it is 5 minutes to Green midnight and the Apocalypse: Read the rest of this entry
With little over a week to go until COP18 starts, there are increasing signs that the Anthropogenic Global Warming boondoggle is disintegrating at an ever increasing pace.
Attendance is down to a lower level than COP17, so slow has the take up for visas been that, the counter for visa applications was removed from the COP18 website.
Then in one of the strangest statements to ever come out of the UNFCCC, the COP18 President, Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah declared that Shale Gas was good news for the world as it would provide energy security for the next 300 years, which is poles apart from the UN official meme of abandoning the use of fossil fuels.
Now the United States has suggested that the UN is not the best place to ever achieve a climate deal: Read the rest of this entry
With COP17 Durban just 10 days away from
disintegration starting, the Climate of Fear campaign is gathering pace and this years scary fear story is Anthropogenic Global Warming causes extreme weather events, which is not the case.
Al Gore in his recent embarrassing
24 Hours of Climate Reality Goregasm attempted to link any weather event he could think of to Climate Change and was ridiculed by both sides of the Climate Change debate for his trouble.
The new IPCC report has been carefully leaked to see how the world reacts to what Jo Nova describes as “IPCC scientists testing the exit doors“, in short the IPCC now say that they are not sure that atmospheric CO2 causes Global Warming, a seismic shift from their 2007 Fourth Assessment that was totally sure that CO2 was the most evil gas, ever.
Damian Carrington at the Guardian is at it again, trying to re-spin the old lies from the IPCC 2007 Fourth Assessment Report, and use this to blatantly lie about the contents of the upcoming Fifth Assessment Report while muttering darkly about moral choices: Read the rest of this entry
The most often repeated lie used by the warming alarmists is that 97% of Climate Scientists are in consensus, probably the next most repeated lie is that sea levels are rising because of melting Arctic ice.
Both lies have become cornerstones of the Church of Climatology, but twice in 2011 NASA have announced that sea levels are dropping, this was confirmed by the European Space Agency earlier this month.
Satellite monitoring shows a drop in sea levels and then there is the inconvenient Truth of Archimedes, who like the Medieval Warming Period is ignored by the warmists: Read the rest of this entry
The railway engineer is at it again spreading the Climate of Fear in preparation for the next UN climate scam synod in Durban.
This is the silly season where the run up to the next UN climate scam conference breeds more new and bizarre stories of Anthropogenic Global Warming that should make us all, very afraid.
Pachuari is flying around the planet again spreading CO2 and vague stories of environmental Armageddon: Read the rest of this entry
