History is littered with examples of cults who believed, while in the throes of religious fervour that a specific cataclysmic event was about to happen, the second coming of Jesus Christ, the religious belief made people think there were bullet proof and environmental Armageddon caused by an inert trace essential for plant life on earth.
The Millerites in October 1844 experienced, what became known as the Great Disappointment, when having disposed of all their earthly possessions, they gathered on hills outside New York to await the second coming,
One of the major problems for doomsayers is what happens when you cry wolf repetitively and the CO2 wolf does not appear, the shrill cries of fear fall of deaf ears as yet another prediction from settled science fails to happen.
Science is never settled, anyone who believes in the concept of settled science is either a religious nutcase, or is so intent on pushing a political agenda, that they have abandoned the concept of rational thought, Chris Huhne is a prime example of the latter. Read the rest of this entry
There are some questions to be answered about Chris Huhne’s explanation that ever rising prices for gas and electricity are mainly caused by fossil fuel costs, with only a tiny fraction of the increases supporting the massive
susbidies taxes on everyone’s energy bills.
Wholesale energy prices peaked in 2008, and then fell back at the end of 2009, retail energy prices however after a slight fall stayed well above the 2008 peak, there were modest increases in wholesale price, last year and this year, but wholesale prices today, are well below the 2008 peak.
Fossil fuel prices have fallen, yet Huhne maintains that ever rising fossil fuel prices are the cause of all time high energy bills: Read the rest of this entry
Britain’s last remaining Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) project has been cancelled, because the major players in the project Scottish Power, Shell and the National Grid were concerned about the economic viability of the project without still more Green taxes on energy bills for electricity and gas.
Like all Green and approved Environmental based projects, they simply don’t work in the real world, without massive
subsidies taxes on consumers. Read the rest of this entry
2700 people will die this winter because of fuel poverty, that is more than lose their lives in traffic accidents in an entire year.
In Britain fuel poverty is defined as spending 10% or more of disposable income on gas and electricity, between 2005 – 2010 the cost of keeping warm in winter has doubled and there are now more than 6 million households in energy poverty.
A report on fuel poverty commissioned by the government found that if just 10% of winter deaths were caused by fuel poverty then 2700 people will die: Read the rest of this entry
Barry Obama has been in power for 1000 days now, 1000 days of incompetence, crony capitalism and abject failure, with Obama’s approval ratings slightly lower than snake shit and the 2012 Presidential Election looming, the brave new world that Obama offered is being compared with the Camelot of JFK.
Now widely regarded as a single term president of less competence than Jimmy Carter, Obama is resorting to the time honoured Socialist tactics of class warfare, the politics of envy and much playing of the racism card.
So bad is Obama’s position that his supporters even setup Attack Watch so that people could inform on those that say derogatory things about “Dear Leader” Obama. Attack Watch was a resounding failure with people reporting their dogs for having anti Obama thoughts, the butt of endless humour and parodies Attack Watch lasted only a few days, before hiding behind the registration form that now appears.

Yesterday Cameron and Huhne stage managed a summit with the big 6 energy companies as the fall guys for the recent massive increases in the costs of gas and electricity, the increased costs were of course nothing to do with the Green taxes and other carbon taxing lunacy.
Huhne took time off from telling consumers they were lazy in not switching tariffs to say that the cost of Green policies to families was only £20 a year, when most estimates from a range of sources put the real cost at £100 a year minimum.
The future for energy costs and the financial outlook for Britain is grim, and the more wind farms there are the worse it will get: Read the rest of this entry
Poor old Ursus maritimus is allegedly suffering again from the effects of Man Made Global Warming, now polar bears are shrinking in size.
The Polar bear has almost become the doomed mascot of the Church of Climatology, the ecomentalist’s Christ on Cross who has suffered for our sins, well, according to the religious teachings of Al Gore, Greenpeace, WWF and FoE the ploar bear has.
The drowning polar bears, resurfaced as Polarbeargate and just like so many more Green and Environmentalist lies, the declining Arctic sea ice was in fact increasing at the rate of an area the size of Manhattan every 3 minutes, now in the latest effort to keep belief in Anthropogenic Global Warming alive, the polar bear and other species are supposedly shrinking in size: Read the rest of this entry
“Global Warning: Trust Scientists, Not Shamans” is unbelievably, a headline from a post on the warming alarmist Huffington Press site.
While many of the warming alarmists like James Hansen have rolled out a number of lame excuses for the decline in Climate Religion belief, like the skeptics have better PR, Huff Po are the first to break ranks and tear chunks out of Al Gore, the IPCC and the environmental movement.
Seems it all started to go wrong in the 1990’s when the international left were in meltdown and environmentalism was a handy place for those against capitalism to regroup and begin the fight anew: Read the rest of this entry
The COP17 Climate Synod has an official airline which offers special discounts for warming alarmists flying to Durban to put a stop to us normal mortals, flying.
Flying is supposed to be one the great evils that the morally superior self appointed guardians of the environment are forever telling us we should not do, what is worse many of them will be committing the ultimate carbon heresy and flying first class. Read the rest of this entry
Australia has committed economic suicide, a country heavily dependent on fossil fuels for both energy and export, has during a deepening global recession introduced a carbon tax, which translates into a tax on everything.
Tony Abbot the opposition leader said “I am giving you the most definite commitment any politician can give that this tax will go. This is a pledge in blood this tax will go.“
Latest polls show 70% of Australian voters against the carbon tax that Gillard said she would never introduce, while unpopular with voters the carbon tax has received support and applause from warmists around the world, that don’t have to live with the economic consequences: Read the rest of this entry
