Green subsidies in UK at new high. Figures reveal UK public being misled by UK political leaders..

                     The cost of green electricity has reached a record high in the UK due to growing subsidies for offshore wind turbines and household solar panels, a report by Emily Gosden and James Kirkup (Telegraph Sunday 29 June).  The annual bill to consumers to subsidise renewable technologies has exceeded £2.5 billion as more turbines are built. The cost has risen from £54.26 per MWh in 2011-2012  to the latest £66.97 per MWh in 2012-2013.  The cost of subsidies for solar panels on household roofs has also escalated from £150 million to £500 million.  This exposes the nonsense from the leaders of the three main parties, the Conservatives, the Lib Dems and Labour that rising electricity bills are due to the "big six" energy companies.  Absolute nonsense!   The rise in electricity bills  is entirely due to subsidies for green technologies.   That is why the Danish energy minister Rasmus Petersen announced recently that Denmark is abandoning wind power.   This Danish announcement is not even reported in newspapers like the Guardian(deliberate?).  Denmark is abandoning wind power because it is destroying the Danish economy. If Denmark is abandoning wind power because it is destroying the economy then why is the UK not abandoning wind power?    Please answer Mr Cameron.

Professor Richard S. J. Tol MEA former lead author IPCC to speak in UK House of Commons on Climate Change

             Professor Richard S. J. Tol MEA Director of Research Department of Economics University of Sussex and former lead author of the IPCC(Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) will speak in the UK House of Commons committee room 20  on 9 July.  This is under the auspices of the UK  Climate Network.    This is at 12 until 2pm. on 9 July.     His title is

                                 AND ITS IMPLICATIONS FOR UK CLIMATE POLICY.   

          Professor Tol is also Professor of the Economics of Climate Change, Institute for Environmental Studies, Vrije University Amsterdam.    He recently resigned from the IPCC on the grounds that its report was too alarmist.     PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF TIME.

Washington Times reports on forthcoming Heartland Institute Las Vegas climate conference

                        Unlike newspapers like the Guardian the Washington Times has reported on the coming International conference on climate change July 7-9 in Las Vegas Nevada.  If you cannot make it to the conference every minute of the conference will be streamed live at the conference web site.  Visit  The President of the Heartland Institute Joseph Bast says the conference is for people who want to understand global warming.   Nearly 1000 people are expected to attend the conference(no doubt ignored by the biased UK broadsheet  press) making it the largest yet.  Thirty co-sponsors are listed.
                The proposals of President Obama to limit what he calls "carbon pollution" are rejected by thousands of scientist who know better. Economists say that his proposed plans will cost $50 billion a year and destroy some 250 000 jobs while reducing future warming by an undetectable 0.18 degrees celsius by 2100..  The benefits of atmospheric carbon dioxide and modest warming greatly exceed the costs. Solar evidence indicates that warming has stopped and there is no evidence of a resumption of warming, rather there is much evidence of widespread global cooing(Niagara Falls has frozen over twice in the last twelve months). The reports of the devious alteration of temperature recording stations to give the impression of global warming by NOAA/NASA is well documented---fraud?

               Scientists from the Nongovernmental International Panel on climate change (NIPCC)an international network of independent scientists with no financial stake in the debate will be on hand to answer questions..  Their new three volume report totals more than 2500 pages, citing more than 7000 peer reviewed studies.Published in both the US and in China.  NIPCC scientists conclude:

  • Atmospheric carbon dioxide is not a pollutant.  It is a non toxic, non irritating and natural component of the atmosphere
  • the human impact on climate is very modest, much less than the impact of natural cycles
  • carbon dioxide has not and will not cause weather to become more extreme, polar ice and sea ice to melt, or sea level rise to accelerate.  these are all false alarms.
  • there is little or no risk of increasing food insecurity due to global warming or rising atmospheric carbon dioxide levels.  Farmers are benefiting from from rising agricultural productivity around the world.                                                                                                       
  • the benefits of modest global warming exceed the likely costs.

note:    Senator James Inhofe reports that the US Supreme Court has reprimanded the Environment Protection Agency in the US for ignoring the law and issued a stunning rebuke to the EPA`s efforts to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.   the truth is that Obama`s efforts to use the EPA will destroy America.  Such politicians who keep parroting that humans are the cause of climate change are lying.

The scandal of fiddled global warming data. Report by Christopher Booker.

                       Sunday Telegraph columnist Christopher booker reports 22 June on Steven Goddard`s US blog  REAL SCIENCE showing how shamelessly manipulated has been one of the world`s most influential climate records.  This is the graph of US surface temperature records published by the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration(NOAA)
   Goddardshows how in recent years, NOAA`s US Historical Climatology Network(USHCN) has been "adjusting" its record by replacing real temperatures with data "fabricated" by computer models.  The effect of this has been to downgrade earlier temperatures and to exaggerate those from recent decades, to give the impression that the earth has been warming up much more than is justified by the actual data.  In several posts headed "Data tampering at USHCN/Giss"Goddard compares the currently published temperature graphs with those based only on temperatures measured at the time.  These showthe US has actually been cooling since the Thirties, the hottest decade on record; whereas the latest graph ,nearly half of it based on "fabricated" data shows it to have been warming at a rate equivalent to more than three degrees centigrade.
per century.  this is not science but is in fact lying political propaganda.   Those who support it are liars.
           (see my post on this site 12 April for graphics compiled byGoddard giving more damming evidence of the political. manipulation at the heart of surface temperature records.

India labels Greenpeace a threat to national economic security.

                            Watts up with that blog( of Anthony Watts reports that India has called Greenpeace a threat to national economic security.
                An Indian Intelligence Bureau report on foreign funded NGOs dated 3 June has been submitted to the Prime Minister`s office and was first reported by the Indian Express.  The report accuses Greenpeace of contravening laws to "change the dynamics of India`s energy mix".  They accuse Greenpeace of anti nuclear agitations and to have mounted " massive efforts to take down India`s coal fired power plants and coal mining activity".  The IB report sees Greenpeace as the prime mover of mass based movements against development projects. It also accuses Greenpeace "actively aided and led by foreign activists visiting India" of violating the provisions of the Foreign Contribution (regulation) Act of 2010.    With the controversy over the activities of Greenpeace in Russia one would have thought that their imprisonment in Russia would have taught them a lesson.  But apparently not, no sooner are they our of a Russian prison they are now annoying the Indian government.

Talk by Professor Richard Lindzen: The Climate Debate Models versus Measurements

Talk by Professor Richard Lindzen Professor of Atmospheric Physics Massachussetts Institute of Technology on climate.
                                  MODELS versus MEASUREMENTS     Professor Lindzen said that real science is not what many climate modellers present as science. He said climate modelling was a kind of religion.  EIKE meeting in Germany April 2014

Professor Caleb Rossiter employment terminated because he described man made global warming as unproved.

            Dr Caleb Rossiter has had his fellowship with the Institute for Policy Studies(IPS) in the US terminated because he said the man made global warming theory was "unproven science".  This is the alarmist climate fascists at work.    Marc Morano of Climate Depot( June 12, 2014 ) reports  that following his May 4th 2014 Wall Street Journal article titled "Sacrificing Africa for Climate Change" in which he called man made global warming an "unproved science" his contract with IPS  was terminated.  Professor Rossiter also championed the expansion of carbon based energy in Africa. He has a Phd in policy analysis and in an interview with Climate Depot he said "just two days after I published a piece in the Wall Street Journal calling for Africa to be allowed all of the energy we have in the US, the Institute for Policy Studies terminated my 23 year relationship with them because my analysis and theirs` diverge".  He questioned the claim of the alarmists and quoted the IPCC(Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) own data showing a nearly 20 year temperature pause.

           In his op-ed in the Wall Street Journal of 4 May he said "I started to suspect that the climate-change data were dubious a decade ago while teaching statistics. Computer models used by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to determine the cause of the six-tenths of one degree Fahrenheit rise in global temperature from 1980 to 2000 could not statistically separate fossil-fueled and natural trends".  He continued "The left wants to stop industrialization--even if the theory of catastrophic man made global warming is false".  He added "western policies seem more interested in carbon-dioxide levels than in life expectancy.  Each American accounts for 20 times the emissions of each African.  We are not rationing OUR electricity.  Why should Africa, which needs electricity for the sort of income producing enterprises and infrastructure that help improve life expectancy? The average in Africa is 59 years, in America it is 79".   he went on  "how terrible to think that so many people in the west would rather block such success stories in the name of unproven science"

Latest Guardian Antarctic melting story. Another alarmist scare devoid of scientific truth!. Volcanic activity the real cause!.

                    Principia Scientific International report the latest Guardian climate scare as devoid of scientific truth and logic.    The West Antarctic glaciers are now melting "past the point of no return" (Guardian 12 May 2014) and this will raise world sea levels according to the Guardian!.  This report is about new research that shows an influx of warm sea water is permeating underneath where the glaciers extend into the sea., causing them to melt back with warm water flows under the Ross Ice Shelf.  As PSI report the inference is a human cause with sea level rises worldwide according to Eric Rignot a glaciologist at Nasa.

                   However the melt back cannot raise sea levels as a floating body displaces its own weight of water(the well known Archimedes Principle---apparently the Guardian are unaware of this simple physics law which invalidates their "report"). As independent researcher Dr Bernie Gunn points out  the floating glacial ice will not cause any sea level rise at all!  Also the melting of the glaciers on land will not cause sea level rise as the influx of warm water is not touching that.  As the PSI report notes the worst possible disaster scenario of warm water continuing to get under the glacier fronts cannot increase the sea level.  Even if it melted back all the way to the continental body the ocean current or atmospheric temperature would certainly have no affect on land based ice at -40celsius!

                 The truth about the melting ice is the volcanic activity as seismologist Amanda Lough of Washington University in St Louis reports ( She says "a subglacial eruption and the accompanying heat flow will melt a lot of ice----by lubricating the bedrock, it will speed the flow of the overlying ice, increasing the rate of ice-mass loss in West Antarctica"  Note also Professor Doug Wiens of Washing University(1).

                 Compare this non political scientific analysis from these world class seismologists with the biased agenda driven nonsense of "climate scientists" who in the wake of 17 years of no global temperature rises are desperate for a human caused explanation,  the nonsense of blaming it on anthropogenic global warming heat entering the oceans which does not exist.

Canadian Climate model and actual global temperatures

The graphic is reproduced with permission by Tom Harris of the Climate Science International    Climate Change "consensus" is a dangerous lie.  The assertion that the majority of scientists believe that climate change is a man made problem is a fiction.  Joe Bast President of the Heartland Institute and Roy Spencer principal research scientist at the University of Alabama and  the US Science team leader for the advanced microwave scanning Radiometer on Nasa`s Aqua satellite says this is nonsense. US Secretary of state Kerry and President Obama are liars.  Climate change is natural and due mainly to the changing sun and ocean cycles.( Terri Jackson`s blog now on Climate Science International web site).

Pause in global warming upsets religious believers.

              Licia Corbella columnist and editorial page editor with the Calgary Herald in an excellent  piece highlighting the presentation by Professor Ross McKitrick at the Friends of Science lunch on 13 May 2014 revealed how the climate models have turned out to be at complete odds with the actual observations. The models predicted rising temperature while the actual observed global temperature has remained steady with no rise for the last 16 years. Professor McKitrick is Professor of Environmental Economic at the university of Guelph Canada    .
