A cynic would most probably argue, rightly it must be said, that for years those with an obsessive fear of CO2 have been using emotion suitably laced with cherry picked junk science to convince others of their beliefs.
The emotion most favoured by Gaia’s disciples is fear, their stories always follow the same plot line, could and probably, now mean will most definitely happen, and we should all be terrified of the outcome of their predictions.
That to date not one single Green doomsday scenario has come to pass matters not to the warming alarmists, previously failed predictions are swept under the responsibly sourced bamboo matting and a new cry of Green wolf shrilly broadcast.
How many times has the Arctic going to be ice free by this date and then that date?
All the fear stories and junk science have failed to carry the message to the masses, now Environmentalist George Marshall believes he has the answer halt the decline in Climate Religion: Read the rest of this entry
The secret of any campaign be it military, or in this case Green protest is to pick a fight you can realistically win, otherwise you are likely to have your own Battle of the Little Big Horn and join George Armstrong Custer in ignominious defeat.
Keystone XL is a 1700 mile pipeline that will stretch from Alberta in Canada to refineries in Texas and Oklahoma, the pipeline will be buried 4 feet underground and have switch off points every 20 miles.
The Greens and warming alarmists decided that the Keystone XL pipeline was going to be their battle, they would defeat the pipeline and the evil oil sands of Alberta would forever stay in the ground, failure to obey the Greens would naturally lead to catastrophic global warming and the whole planet would fry as a consequence.
The warming alarmists and their scientists expected the great Green hope, Barack Obama would live up to his Green rhetoric and a put a stop to the whole project. Read the rest of this entry
It is just one month into 2014 and the decline in the Anthropogenic Global Warming boondoggle within the European Union continues, this time with visible splits in the EU Commission on Energy.
European Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger has called the latest EU climate ambition for 2030 emissions targets “stupid or arrogant“, this is not the first time that Oettinger has broken ranks with the EU Green cabal. Last year Oettinger pointed out that there is no mileage in the leading the way with Green policies that kill jobs and make energy unaffordable, the rest of the world is not going to follow the EU’s lead and commit economic suicide.
The latest Green stupidity from the EU commission is to cut Greenhouse gas emissions 40% from 1990 levels by 2030, in plans announced last week. Read the rest of this entry
The collapse of the warming alarmist industry continues unabated with one of the last bastions of the dying Climate Fad, the EU, failing to commit economic suicide at a suitably fast pace for environmentalists and Green NGO’s.
The immediate reaction for Liberals and Greens when their aspirations are not fully met and pandered to, is outrage; the problem with outrage is that being an intense emotion it clouds judgement, thinking and writing.
This latest piece from the Head of the Environment (has anyone told Gaia?) Damian Carrington at the Guardian falls in to just that category: Read the rest of this entry
“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
One of the poster boys for the Green Liberal warming alarmists has slithered out from under his stone to warn that Climate Change denying Conservatives risk becoming irrelevant, a fate that is currently befalling warming alarmists at an ever increasing rate.
Nasheed was the poster boy of the warming alarmist movement, a shrewd politician who saw that rich western Liberals wanted to give money away to fight the fantasy of man made climate change, so Nasheed played them to the hilt by claiming the Maldives were sinking due to rising sea levels, even though globally sea levels have been receding for at least the last 10 years as Envisat data showed.
The warming alarmists and mesmerized politicians took Nasheed to their hearts, British Prime Minister David Cameron once described Nasheed as “my new best friend“, since the coup there has been an attempt to raise Nasheed to being a minor deity, they even made a film eulogizing Nasheed “The Island President.”
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
Green stupidity still occasionally holds sway at the highest levels of government in some countries in the EU, as was amply demonstrated by British Prime Minister David Cameron in the House of Commons yesterday.
Fortunately not all countries in the EU are saddled with politicians who are nothing more than molluscs, liberally dipped in snake oil, The Czech Republic and Poland for example, have politicians who long ago decided being Green was stupid and have since put the interests of their citizens ahead of trying to earn personal Green credentials on the world stage.
In the run up to the General Election in 2010 which Cameron failed to win, one of Cameron’s big spin lines was that, He (Cameron) was the natural heir to Tony Blair, yep truly something to aspire to being, a socialist war monger, can there be any higher aspirational goal?
Cameron blows hot and cold on the Climate Change boondoggle, during the COP19 fiasco in Warsaw last November Cameron was allegedly wandering about muttering darkly about “Green crap” in response to rising consumer anger about energy prices, and the ever increasing cost of renewable energy subsidies.
Yesterday was obviously a hot day for Global Warming in Cameron world Read the rest of this entry
