Owen Patterson sacked by Cameron now to deliver the annual GWPF lecture on 15 October.

                        Owen Patterson the environment minister has been sacked byPrime Minister Cameron.  His position on the environment has been supported by millions right across the UK.  In an article in the Sunday Telegraph of 20 July Mr Patterson pulls no punches. He starts by saying that he has great misgiving about the power and irresponsibility of the Green Blob as he calls the greenies.  He says by that he means the mutually supportive network of environmental pressure groups, renewable energy companies and some public officials who keep each other well supplied with lavish funds, scare stories and green tape. He says he fully supports ordinary local conservationists who do great work as do the farmers, rural businesses and ordinary people.  They are a world away from the highly paid globe trotters of the Green Blob who beseiged me says Mr Patterson with their self serving demands many of which would have harmed the environment.  He goes on to mention the death threats he received, his home address was circulated worldwide  with an incitement to trash tt! (These are the green fascists at work--blog editor).  He goes on to record he was burnt in effigy by Greenpeace as he was recovering from an operation to save his eyesight.(The Indian government have said that Greenpeace are a threat to economic security and stability.  I agree!--  Blog editor))  He says he is proud that his departure was greeted with such gloating by spokespeople for the Green party and Friends of the Earth. He says it was not his job to do the bidding of two organisations that are little more than anti capitalist agitating groups whose leaders could not tell the difference between a snakeshead fritillary and a silver washed fritillary! (Note: In the war most of the greens in Germany were card carrying Nazis!   today they appear little different.  As for Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth clearly their knowledge of the atmospheric physics of climate change is zero!)

                         He says he saw his task in improving the environment and the rural economy while many in the green movement believed in neither. He says the Green Blog sprouts especially vigorously in Brussels.  The European Commission web site reveals that a staggering 150 million euros was paid to the top nine green NGOs from 2007 to 2013. We broke the Council deadlock on GM crops so decisions may be repatriated to member states and we headed off bans on fracking said Mr Patterson. He says when he proposed a solution to the dreadful suffering of cattle  badgers and farmers as a result of the bovine TB epidemic he was opposed by rich pop stars who had never been faced with having to cull a pregnant heifer.  He went on to say that when he spoke up for the landscapes of the countryside against the heavily subsidised industry that wants to spoil them with wind turbines at vast cost to ordinary people, vast reward to  rich landowners and undetectable effects on carbon dioxide emissions he was frustrated by colleagues from the Lib Dem party.  When faced with the flooding on the Somerset Levels he said he refused to make the popular and false excuse of blaming it on global warming.(Note: the flooding in the Somerset Levels was entirely due to the incompetence of the Environment Agency in withdrawing at least thirty dredging machines resulting in massive flooding of people`s houses. ---Blog editor.)  Yes he says he has annoyed these people but they do not represent the real countryside of farmers and workers.  The Green Blob has become a powerful and self serving caucus.  It is the job of elected politicians to stand up to them. He concludes saying that we must have the courage to tackle it head on as Tony Abbott in Australia and Stephen Harper in Canada have done or the environment and economy will both continue to suffer.

Australia: No longer a carbon tax nation! South Korea to follow suit!

                        The alarmists have taken a double hit. The new Aussie Prime Minister Tony Abbott true to his election promise has seen to it that Australia has abandoned the carbon tax that has been pointedly crippling the Australian economy. The Senate upheld the vote in the House to bring the doomed CO2 tax to a timely end.  The Australian Labor Party with the Greens have been resoundly defeated. Now we hear that South Korea is about to follow suit.  The South Korea finance minister has called its emissions trading market "flawed in many ways".  South Korea`s courageous stand against carbon madness raises hopes that Australia`s rejection of carbon pricing will be the domino which topples any chance of global cooperation on CO2.

Coldest Antarctic June ever recorded! Brisbane has coldest temperature for 103 years!

French Antarctic Dumont d`Urville Station     Anthony Watts has posted a report by Eric Worrall. Meteo France concerning the French Antarctic Dumont d`Urville Station.  During June this year the average temperature was -22.4celsius which is 6.6 celsius lower than normal.  This is the coldest June ever reecorded at the station.  June broke the June daily minimum temperature record with a new low of -34.9celsius!  According to the Meteo France record, there is no other weather station for 1000km in any direction.     So much for the alarmist global warming script!  

Brisbane hits coldest temperature in 103 years!  Report in the Australian by Chris McMahon and Sharnee Rawson 12 July 2014. (    Not since 28 July 1911 has Brisbane felt this cold with a temperature of only 2.6 celsius.   According to meteorologist Matt Bass the average for this time of the year is 12 celsius so Brisbane was about 9 celsius below average.   Note: Australian prime minister Tony Abott says he intends to get rid of the carbon tax in Australia!    Add to all this the fact that there has been very heavy snow falls in the Swiss Alps and one gets the picture.  Its global cooling on the way, global warming is dead so keep your fur coats handy folks!

NOAA reinstates July 1936 as the hottest month on record!

                       NOAA the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the US, criticized for manipulating temperature records to create a warming trend, has now been exposed as reverting to the true real temperatures again.  When meteorologist and climate site owner Anthony Watts went to check the NOAA data last Sunday he found the science agency had quietly  reinstated July 1936 as the hottest month on record in the US.  This is after they had wrongly  previously  said that July 2012 was the hottest month on record in the US.  This change back to reality by NOAA is welcome news and has been reported in the Daily Caller of 30 June 2014       .
