There is a chance that levels of atmospheric CO2 could exceed 400 ppm next month, according to readings from the US government’s Earth Systems Research laboratory in Mauna Loa, Hawaii.
So far this year hourly readings of 400 ppm have been recorded 6 times in the high Arctic, with such a symbolically important event about to happen the usual Green suspects have been begun wailing, and yes you guessed correctly, we are all going to die again.
In a wonderfully self-defeating story in the UK Guardian, Green evangelist John Vidal has heeded the call for CO2 hysteria: Read the rest of this entry
The European Unions climate change policy is at the point of collapse, the carbon floor price has crashed through the floor to an all time low of €2.63 a metric ton, after MEPs voted against “backloading” the EU Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS).
The EU ETS has been in crisis for years, there was a huge €5bn VAT fraud, then the computer systems were hacked and down for weeks, the price of carbon globally has been in free fall and backloading was the last ditch attempt to save the ETS.
Backloading is essentially withholding from sale 900 million carbon permits in an attempt to drive up the price of carbon which continues to fall due to the economic problems and decline in manufacturing in the EU.
Commissar Connie described backloading as “no brainer”, ignoring the obvious irony of such a statement, Hedegaard had put her all her political clout behind backloading, the rejection by the EU Parliament is a decisive blow to Hedegaard and the Green Agenda she relentlessly pushes.

The summer of 2012 was one of the hottest on record, America’s corn belt was parched dry, frequent comparisons were to made to the Dust Bowl disasters of the 1930s, but unlike the 1930s this modern drought was hailed as further proof of the hand of man influencing the climate.
The Boy King Obama, facing re-election in November 2012 immediately attributed the drought to Anthropogenic Global Warming, the usual Green suspects rallied around the king, who then received even more support for his theory from such Hollywood scientific luminaries as Bette Midler, the guy with the squeaky voice, what’s his name, oh yeah Matt Damon and Barbra Streisand to name
the most irritating but a few.
So the stage is set, the good and the Green have written the script, another weather event caused by CO2 and man, further proof of man made climate change, but was the 2012 US drought really caused by Anthropogenic Climate Change? Read the rest of this entry
This is a classic case of government wasting tax payers money in an irresponsible way, all in the name of the International Aid Budget which currently stands at 0.7% of Britain’s GDP, and being Green.
Pitcairn Island is where the crew of HMAV Bounty settled, after casting the Captain of the Bounty, William Bligh adrift, the story has been immortalized in several Hollywood movies over the years so most people have some knowledge of the story.
The mutineers led by Fletcher Christian consisted of 8 British sailors, 6 Tahitian men, 11 Tahitian women, and 1 baby landed on Pitcairn in 1798 and remained there undiscovered until the US sealing ship Topaz visited the island in 1808. The people who landed in 1798 are the ancestors of today’s Pitcairn Islanders.
History is not sure what fate held became of Fletcher Christian, he is alleged to have been brutally murdered on the island, other stories say that Christian made it back to England, though the logistics of doing this were nearly impossible at the time, for example today to travel to Pitcairn Island means flying to New Zealand, then taking 2 more flights and finally a 32 hour boat trip to reach the island, this place really does put the R in remote.
Pitcairn Island is a British Overseas Territory, a throw back to the days of the Empire, which means it receives priority foreign aid from the Foreign Aid budget, which is currently £43000 per islander. Estimates of the island population vary from 44 to 67, with 55 being the most popular, which is where the figure of £43000 comes from, considerably more than the average wage of £25000 in Britain.
On top of all the foreign aid money flowing in, the geniuses at the Department for International Development (DfID) decided that it was time for Green energy on Pitcairn Island and that a wind farm should be built: Read the rest of this entry
When this story first surfaced, the initial reaction was, April Fools day joke, how could a country with one of the lowest per capita emissions signing up to a treaty that expired on December 31st 2012 be hailed as a Green success story.
The world’s only treaty for fear of CO2, the Kyoto Protocol ended along with 2012 on December 31st, attempts to keep it alive at COP18 failed, an attempt at a new Kyoto 2 was ignored by most of the world, except the EU and grasping hands of the small islands states demanding their climate justice money.
All search engines confirm this story to be true, such is the state of decline of Big Green these days that a negligible emitter joining a now defunct treaty is a cause for celebration: Read the rest of this entry
There is a lesson to learned from events last month in Europe’s poorest country, Bulgaria, well actually there are 2 lessons to be learned, both unfortunately need to be learned by politicians in the rest of Europe, or the world when it comes to it.
The first lesson is that people will not put up with ever increasing electricity bills in the name of saving the planet while a few fat cats and crony capitalists cream off huge profits from Green subsidies on ordinary people’s and businesses energy bills, the second lesson is that Green intermittent renewable energy wreaks havoc on electrical grids, ultimately leading to brown outs and black outs as the grid cannot cope with the sudden Green energy spikes.
History shows that even a short period of rolling black outs will bring down a Government, even in a country like Britain, when in 1974 then Prime Minister Edward Heath took on the miners, with the resulting Three Day Week of rolling power cuts. Heath called an election in February 1974 when the Three Day Week was at its height, and effectively lost the election as he could not form a working majority for Government.
On February 20th this year protests at the cost of Green energy and the resulting increased poverty toppled the government of Boyko Borissov: Read the rest of this entry
There are many myths, urban legends and downright lies pushed by Big Green about their Global Warming scam, the most popular being “the rise in global mean temperature is unprecedented“, unprecedented in so much, that there has been no warming for 17 years.
Every natural event that has happened cyclically since time began is taken out of context, isolated and then attributed to man man Global Warming, the natural cycles of receding glaciers and calving ice sheets are more proof to the warming alarmists that the hand of man is at work here.
Warming alarmist computer models shows that increased levels of atmospheric CO2 will cause catastrophic global warming, computer models like opinion polls can always be counted upon to give the required answer, it is all down to how you load the data or questions in your favour to ensure the required answer is obtained, most climate models accept 5 million parameters for example. There is also the very real and always ignored problem that the climate models cannot reproduce any climate events from history, they do not even get close yet somehow we are supposed to trust their predictions for the future.

The time for another pointless Green gesture is upon us, again, today at 8:30pm local time across the planet the WWF have declared that it is Earth Hour, where for 1 hour we are all supposed to turn off the lights, sit in the dark and get used to how life would be, in a Green world with a Green global economy.
Since the first Earth Hour in 2007 the event has been in decline, last year’s Earth Hour was a spectacular non event, this year sees some changes in Australia where some buildings will be lit with a Green light to symbolize the commitment to renewable energy, then are even prizes on offer to towns that make the most pledges to switch to intermittent renewable energy, the towns can win solar panel systems, so Earth Hour is good preparation for getting used to sitting in the dark when the sun goes down.
The WWF insist that Earth Hour is not about saving energy, but about making a Green gesture: Read the rest of this entry
What the Greens refer to as debate, for that read indoctrination in the fear of CO2, has been dropped from the National Curriculum for school children under the age of 14.
The teaching of Climate Change in British schools does not paint a pretty picture, Al Gore’s Powerpoint Slide Show aka An Inconvenient Truth was ruled by a High Court Judge to be a political film that contained 9 key scientific errors, and can only be shown with guidance notes to prevent political indoctrination.
Then there were Climate of Fear adverts run by the Department of Energy and Climate Superstition, at the time run by Ed Miliband, which corrupted nursery rhymes Jack and Jill and Rub a Dub Dub into Green fear memes, which breached the Advertising Standards Authority’s guidelines, unlike the video at the top of this post which strangely did not.
In March 2012 Education Secretary Michael Gove said Climate Change propaganda has no place in British schools which is absolutely correct, history shows the dangers of indoctrinating children with political ideology, if you need an example think Hitler Youth, or Pol Pot.
Now the latest draft guidelines for teaching in Stages 1 – 3 have no mention of Climate Change in Geography: Read the rest of this entry
Wind farms are another of the Greens zero CO2 mirages, naturally the emissions produced during the manufacture of the turbine are ignored, as are the emissions of the fossil fueled coal or gas power station that has to be on standby for when the intermittency problem happens.
A new study by researchers from Aberdeen University has uncovered yet another problem with CO2 emissions and wind farms, this time it is the land that wind farms are built upon that is the source of massive amounts of CO2 being released.
Around of 50% of English onshore wind farms are built on peat bogs or peat based land, in Scotland the total is even higher at 66%: Read the rest of this entry
