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
It is Climate Week in Britain where 500000 people will attend 3000 events in support of the Anthropogenic Global Warming scam, or to put it more accurately the public support for
action on controlling the climate committing economic suicide is so overwhelming each event attracts an average of just 166 people.
The mission of Climate Week is the usual mix of Green renewable energy can meet all of Britain’s energy needs, and if we lead the way with Green gesture politics then the rest of the world, who to date have walked away from this idea, will suddenly get a massive change of heart and follow our example.
One of the objectives of Climate Week is to reinstate an ambitious, for that read economically disastrous, power sector decarbonisation target for 2030 that some how vanished at the end of 2012, the re-introduction of this target is being actively supported by the Head of the Climate Change Committee crony capitalist and rent seeker Tim Yeo and Labour MP Barry Gardiner.

The story goes like this, Canada has oil rich sands in Alberta, the plan is to build a 1700 mile underground pipeline from Alberta to oil refineries in Texas and Oklahoma, the pipeline is known as Keystone XL.
Keystone XL has been chosen by the warming alarmists and Champagne Celebrities as the environmental battle to fight, the decision Obama makes on Keystone will for the Greens be the defining moment on whether or not Obama delivered his State of Union address promises to lead on the fight for the UN and governments to control the planets weather.
Previous protests against Keystone have seen NASAs James Hansen, the fabricator of ever warming historical records of temperature data, get arrested, a fate shared in this latest protest by Daryl Hannah.
The protest against Keystone was billed as the “Biggest Climate Rally In History” but was it? Read the rest of this entry
Last weekend a wind turbine collapsed at Broadworthy, Devon in a 50 mph wind, although the wind turbine is supposed to be resilient to wind speeds more than twice as fast as this.
Now a second bird chopper has come crashing down 18 miles away in Cornwall on the family farm of a Lib Dem councillor, the Lib Dems you may recall from their last party conference were the only major political party in Britain, to still believe in Climate Religion, so it is no surprise to find Green crony capitalism being practiced by one of their number.
The collapse of 2 symbols of Green tokenism within a week have put health and safety pressures on an industry already under attack for besmirching landscapes and costing billions in Green subsidies for energy bill payers.
Investigations into the cause of the Broadworthy turbine have found bolts missing from the base which is leading to an attempted damage limitation exercise where the dark deeds of sabotage are being mooted as a possible cause of the collapse. Read the rest of this entry
“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others” were the words of Napoleon the pig in George Orwell’s Animal Farm, an allegorical story about Stalin and communism, equally applicable to today’s Greens and environmentalists.
Some animals are politically correct and fit the Green fantasy Disney stereotype of how nature should be, others need to be eradicated because they kill other animals or because of the their carbon paw print.
The Green in environmentalism has always been about the color of money, if you need further proof just look at the huge subsidies that renewables like wind and solar receive globally, in Britain solar energy companies are suing the Government for cutting subsidies for having solar panels installed, in the US the wailing from wind farm operators when the PTC was delayed was deafening.
In Australia another Green profiteer has seen an opportunity to cash in on
saving the planet killing an animal that does not fit the Green model: Read the rest of this entry
It has as they say, all been downhill for the warming alarmists since the catastrophic failure of the COP15 UN climate circus meeting at Copenhagen in 2009, the last meeting, COP18 in Doha, held in November was the biggest failure to date.
The Kyoto Protocol expired at the end of December 2012, when COP18 ended not one major emitter had singed up for any new form of Kyoto, and the few countries that did underwent a rapid mind change within days.
As 2013 began Russia announced that it will never sign up to a new Kyoto treaty, the same goes for Canada who left the original Kyoto Protocol, the US, Brazil, China and India have yet to publicly adopt the same position as Russian and Canada, but their actions amount to the same.
The truth that the great man made climate change scam is mostly over is proving unpalatable to the Greens, the observed empirical evidence is so far removed from the Green Armageddon narrative, it is little wonder that the scam has come apart, yet for some they continue to marshal the Green doom sayings from years ago about rising temperatures, rising sea levels and ice free polar regions as absolute truths that the world must act on.

Ever since COP15 in Copenhagen, each successive year’s Conference of the Parties (COP) has been a bigger failure than it’s predecessor, COP18 was even by the standards of the UNFCCC, a spectacular failure, the delegates left Doha without any of the major emitters making a new pledge to cut their CO2 emissions.
The chances of a global climate deal have receded to virtually nothing, Canada has turned it;s back on Kyoto, and already this year Russia has said it will never sign up for Kyoto 2.
The US under Obama will not sign up for anything that harms the US recovery, China plays a game of pretending to be Green will getting on with their economic expansion and India is unlikely to sign up to anything that will stop India’s economy growing.
However for some people in the Green boondoggle this reality, and the reality of the standstill in global temperature for what will be 20 years according to the UK Met Office, has still to sink in: Read the rest of this entry
Climate Change, Global Warming, whatever the ever changing scam is called today, it hardly figured in the US Presidential Election last year, though once re-elected Obama did mention Climate Change is his victory speech.
The mere mention of Climate Change by Obama has got the Greens all excited, dressed up and with nowhere to go, in the eyes on many environmentalists Obama failed his first Green test when he signed a law that prohibits US airlines from taking part in the now shelved EU Green flying tax.
At this stage of the disintegration of the Church of Climatology, drowning environmentalists with non rising sea levels are indulging in a fest of straw grabbing: Read the rest of this entry
The outcome of COP18 did at least last a little bit longer than COP17, where just 1 day after COP17 finished, Canada exercised its legal right to withdraw from the Kyoto protocol stating that “Kyoto was not the way forward for Canada or the world“.
So it is no real surprise to learn that once again Kyoto is rapidly eroding what little COP18 achieved, which in essence was 37 countries agreeing to a non legally binding extension of Kyoto to run until 2020, not one major CO2 emitting country has signed up.
The scale of the Green defeat at Doha can be quantified by the fact that the 37 countries emit just 15% of the scary CO2 emissions, and the majority of the 15% (11%) comes from the EU block of nations.
The way that the new Kyoto texts were forced through by the COP18 President Abdullah bin Hamad Al-Attiyah at the close of the meeting is causing problems for the outcome: Read the rest of this entry
