In the late 1940′s and early 1950′s there was a particularly cringe making genre of film called the Musical Western, these movies for a while were very popular, but eventually the camp clothing, the ludicrous plot lines proved too much for audiences, who drifted away from the fad.
Well it should, in the last decade of the 20th Century and the first decade of the 21st Century there was a fad for Climate Religion where the same hair shirt clothing and ludicrous plot lines proved too much for the audience, who drifted away from the fad.
At least the Musical Western had the decency to just fade away from the screens, unlike the UN Climate Process which annually makes a spectacle of its continuing and agonizing death throes, last years event Fear and Loathing in Doha was one of the best Green disaster movies of all time, this year’s event in Poland is set to trump Doha in spades.
When Poland was chosen as COP19 hosts, at COP18 the wailing and whingeing from the Greens started and has continued unabated ever since. The Greens are less than impressed with the COP19 website which is neither Green nor extreme enough for them, Poland has a history of being obstructive to Green plans for economic suicide and most ironically for the Greens, the political consensus on the stupidity of Green measures is shared by both the Left and the Right.

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
“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
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
2012 was an unprecedented year of disaster and defeat for the Greens and warming alarmists, it was a year that on the face of it offered much hope to the watermelons, in June there was going to be the Rio+20 Earth Summit, COP18 in Doha was going to build on the progress of COP17 and the Durban Platform and the European Union was going to single-handedly enforce a flying tax on the world.
Instead it all went to hell in solar powered hand cart, as Green defeat followed Green defeat.
On January 1st 2012 the EU announced the start of its Green flying tax on all flights in and out of the EU, as global opposition to the Green tax mounted, Comrade Connie Hedegaard, the EU’s unelected Climate Commissar remained bullish and insisted that the world would bow down to her Green will.
Many nations including the US, China and India prohibited their airlines from taking part in the EU flying tax amid threats of a trade war, particularly from China. Finally in November Hedegaard and the EU backed down and suspended their Green flying tax for
forever 12 months.
The Rio+20 Earth summit held the promise of the chance to relive the glory days of warming alarmism: Read the rest of this entry
The EU’s unelected Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard is at it again, pushing fear stories of extreme weather events, naturally caused by Anthropogenic Global Warming of course.
This is the Green silly season, the run up to a UN COP meeting which always sees a massive increase of Green doom and gloom predictions, historically none of which have ever come true thus far.
Hedegaard it is worth remembering was responsible for hosting and preparing COP
Climategate 15 before being appointed EU Climate Commissar, so she is hardly impartial when it comes to pushing the Global Agrarian Society.
In warming alarmist reality, Global Warming is the cause for just about everything that has ever happened or will ever happen, event attribution to give it’s name and it is a very popular tool in promoting the political science of Climate Change.
Event Attribution makes even IPCC lead authors despair, IPCC Lead Author Myles Allen had this to say about Al Gore and event attribution: Read the rest of this entry
This years record Arctic sea ice melt has got the warming alarmist doom sayers all fired up and predicting more environmental Armageddon in the Arctic, even though the warming alarmist propaganda machine had already predicted that the Arctic would be ice free by the summer of 2012.
Of course this is the start of the silly season for Big Green, the run up to COP18 in Doha, the same cycle that happens every year in preparation for the annually declining attendance at UN COP meetings.
This year the fear theme is Arctic Sea Ice, and this time the Arctic will be ice free in just 4 years according to Professor Peter Wadhams: Read the rest of this entry
