Things have not been going well for environmental NGO Greenpeace in the last few months, there was the insanely stupid attempt to interfere with Gazprom operations in the Arctic, which led to the Arctic 30 enjoying the hospitality of the Russian penal system for a few months. Greenpeace also lost a ship, the Arctic Sunrise which is still impounded in the Russian port of Murmansk, and likely to be there until it rusts away and sinks, or ends life as a towed target for the Russian Navy.
In the words of Greenpeace Co-Founder Patrick Moore “I’d like to think that Greenpeace left me, rather than the other way round. I became a sensible environmentalist. Greenpeace became increasingly senseless.“
Greenpeace apart from being increasingly senseless have also been caught losing millions in donations by failed currency trading, been labelled as a threat to national economic security, and one of their top executives has been caught out hypocritically commuting by air from Luxembourg to Amsterdam.
All this makes for very bad publicity for Greenpeace: Read the rest of this entry
Dr Don Easterbrook is a climate scientist and glacier expert who predicted back in the year 2000 that the Earth was entering a cooling phase for at least the next 20 years and to expect lower temperatures.
There has been no real warming, only Green fantasy warming for the last 17 years, so it looks like Easterbrook is a rare climate scientist, one whose predictions actually come true.
A mere 7 years after Easterbrooks prediction Al Gore and the UN IPCC shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize for their “planetary emergency” that alleged that Planet Earth was facing catastrophic global warming due to rising levels of CO2.
At this point is worth remembering that the charter for the UN IPCC only allows the IPCC to consider the hand of man in climate change, so their reports will always attribute natural climate change to Anthropogenic causes. 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
“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
No doubt about it 2013 was a terrible year for the warming alarmists, Greens and Climate Change scammers.
The conviction of Liberal Democrat Climate Change secretary Chris Huhne for perverting the course of justice was a major setback for warming alarmism both in Britain and the European Union.
The annual UN Climate Meeting, COP19 in Warsaw was the biggest UNFCCC car crash to date, already doomed to fauilure by Barack Obama before it had even started. As the days went by the cracks really began to show when all the Green NGOs staged a walkout. Tensions then reached fever pitch when Venezuela accused EU Climate Commissar Connie Hedegaard of ruining not only COP19, but COP15 as well.
So it is fitting that 2013 should end with a coterie of warming alarmist scientists trapped in Antarctic Sea ice: Read the rest of this entry
Tis the season to be jolly unless of course you are a joyless Green climate zealot in which case tis the season to try to frighten children.
This latest video from Greenpeace has Downton Abbey actor Jim Carter (the butler) doing an impression of Saddam Hussein dressed as Santa broadcasting from a bunker during an air raid.
“Dear children, regrettably I bring bad tidings,” the Greenpeace “Santa” says, speaking from what looks like a stark, dimly lit bunker. “For some time now, melting ice here at the North Pole has made our operations and our day-to-day life intolerable and impossible, and there may be no alternative but to cancel Christmas.
