One of the most interesting aspects of the Greenpeace pirates story is the deafening silence from the embassy’s of the foreign nationals currently under arrest in Murmansk. Apart from some muted comments from the Dutch about the Arctic Sunrise being a Dutch registered vessel and a faint mumbling from the Finns about one of their nationals, nobody seems bothered about a bunch of Green activists being in prison.
This must have come as a surprise to Greenpeace who are used to Politicians in the West hanging on their every word and being terrified of upsetting Greenpeace on its self appointed mission to destroy industrialized society.
So when Greenpeace director John Sauven wrote this piece in The Guardian in today they would have been expecting unwavering support from the Green Guardianistas who would of course be suitably outraged that these people were arrested for following their conscience, one of the most noble Liberal acts anyone can do, and which, should of course, make you immune from any sort of punishment.

As the public knowledge about the real cost of renewable energy has grown, so too, have the attempts by the Greens to hide the real cost of their renewable energy boondoggle, which continues to take money from the poor and give it to the rich, wind turbines really are an inflation proof cash machine that pays out vast sums of money.
On February 27th this year, Damian Carrington at the Guardian claimed to have discovered new data which showed that fossil fuels got roughly 5 times the amount of subsidy (£3.63bn) in 2010, when renewables only got £0.7bn for the same period.
One of those figures is true, the other is a complete fabrication arrived at by comparing something that has never existed, fossil fuel subsidies, with something that does, renewable energy subsidies. Read the rest of this entry
With the planet being the coldest it has been for a decade it is comforting to know that the decrease in solar activity will not stop the run away global warming caused by obscene levels of atmospheric CO2 that the Earth is experiencing.
Well that’s the story from the UK Met Office famed for its useless weather forecasting, it has conjoined with Reading University to produce a new fear scenario all based on a single computer model’s predictions.
In November 2010 the Met Office found that the world was warming faster than they thought, so no big surprises that nothing can stop the inexorable rise of global temperatures and the Guardian are ecstatic that Armageddon is still scheduled for a vague date in the future: Read the rest of this entry
With COP17 Durban just 10 days away from
disintegration starting, the Climate of Fear campaign is gathering pace and this years scary fear story is Anthropogenic Global Warming causes extreme weather events, which is not the case.
Al Gore in his recent embarrassing
24 Hours of Climate Reality Goregasm attempted to link any weather event he could think of to Climate Change and was ridiculed by both sides of the Climate Change debate for his trouble.
The new IPCC report has been carefully leaked to see how the world reacts to what Jo Nova describes as “IPCC scientists testing the exit doors“, in short the IPCC now say that they are not sure that atmospheric CO2 causes Global Warming, a seismic shift from their 2007 Fourth Assessment that was totally sure that CO2 was the most evil gas, ever.
Damian Carrington at the Guardian is at it again, trying to re-spin the old lies from the IPCC 2007 Fourth Assessment Report, and use this to blatantly lie about the contents of the upcoming Fifth Assessment Report while muttering darkly about moral choices: Read the rest of this entry
The cartoon represents a modified version of the prisoner’s dilemma. The best (or least bad) course of action for both parties (the man and everyone else) is to start spending again. However, no-one else follows the man’s lead, so he ends up in the street. As with the prisoner’s dilemma, both parties benefit only if they are prepared to put aside personal interest and act selflessly. Unfortunately, it tends to be every man for himself.
The idea of using game theory is no more workable than any other, as it always comes down to self interest and the negotiators at the Climate Synod in Durban are ultimately accountable to the politicians, who in turn are accountable to their votes, and Climate Religion is in decline globally.
