Conservative Bruges Group publishes climate lecture by Professor Murry Salby

              The Conservative Bruges Group has published the climate lecture given by Professor Salby in the House of Commons and in the Scottish Parliament last November. It has been put together by Mike Haseler BSc  MBA of the Scottish Climate and Energy Forum    It has an introduction  by Philip Foster MA.  The visit to the UK by Professor Salby was arranged by Philip Foster and A Terri Jackson a member of the Bruges Group.  His lecture is also available on U-Tube and hard copies can be obtained from the Bruges Group at 214 Linen Hall,162-168 Regent Street, London W1B 5TB  e-mail: info @
                          see also youtube presentation of Professor Salby
Professor Salby`s new book on climate change: Physics of the Atmosphere and Climate 2nd edition 2012  ISBN 9780521767187.   Recommendation by Professor Jim Williams University of California Los Angeles.
                   " Salby`s book is a graduate textbook on earth`s atmosphere and climate that is well balanced between the physics of the constituent materials and fluid dynamics.  I recommend it as a foundation for anyone who wants to do research on the biogeochemikstry, and ocean-atmosphere coupling."

Australian bureau of Meteorology manipulates temperature datas

        A report in the Australian newspaper has revealed that the Bureau of Meteorology in Australia has been busy adjusting temperature data to give the impression to the gullible that the earth is warming instead of cooling.(Graham Lloyd The Australian 23/08/14).   This to fit a pre-determined view of global warming. Before their "adjustments" the trend at Amerley in Australia was a cooling trend of 1 degree celsius per century.  After their manipulations it becomes a warming trend of 2.5 celsius per century.  People in real life who do this are usually jailed for
deiberate misleading of the public!   Australian researcher Jennifer Marohasy claims the adjusted records resemble "propaganda" rather than science.

Greenie politicians policies put 1.5 million UK jobs at risk!

                               A report by Emily Gosden(Daily Telegraph) reveals that 1.5 million UK manufacturing jobs are at risk due to green policies imposed by Brussels.  Business for Britain BFB says that EU policies are to blame for up to 9% of energy bill costs for industry and this can rise to 16 % by 2030.  Manufacturers are now considering moving their operations abroad where energy is cheaper, risking devastating job loses in the UK.  More than 1.5 million people are employed in energy-intensive industries such as metals, ceramics and glass with 363000 in direct employment.  BFB says that opting out of EU renewable targets could cut energy bills.  BFB estimates that help to meet EU energy laws could be as much as £93 billion!  The EU laws have been fully implemented by the Cameron conservative led government.  The coming general election will give voters the opportunity to give their response to Mr Cameron and his greenie policies.

British Antarctica Survey Team lose power at Halley VI base.

CFact reports(7 August) thirteen members of the British Antarctic Survey were trapped and in danger of freezing to death when their base, Halley VI lost power in temperatures of -55.4celsius.  Power has been partially restored but all science activities have been suspended and emergency plans to abandon some of Halley`s eight modules have been prepared.  The station cannot be reached for months so the danger is very serious.  In fact if they lose power again they could freeze to death. Marc Merano of Climate Depot reports that the incident occurred during the height of the Antarctic winter while southern sea ice is at or near record highs.Halley VI is located on the Brunt Ice Shelf on 150 meter thick ice.

Letter by Tom Harris(International Climate Science Coalition) in the St Louis Post Dispatch

     Tom Harris Executive Director of the International Climate Science Coalition has just published an excellent letter in the St Louis Post dispatch.  St Louis Post Dispatch. Letter by tom Harris (ICSC)

                  The Rev Dr Gerald Durley is certainly right to alert us to "our moral obligation to act and urge action on climate for those communities hit hardest by its impacts"("we must speak with one voice about climate change"  July 31). Across the world people are suffering due to the effects of dangerous climate change.  Yet aid agencies are unable to secure sufficient funds to help them because, of the $1 billion spent globally every day on climate finance, only 6 percent of it goes to helping vulnerable people adapt to climate change today.   The rest is spent trying to stop climate phenomena that might happen in the distant future.  This is immoral, effectively valuing the lives of people yet to be born more than those in need today.

                  By promoting the scientifically unfounded belief that we can control the climate of Earth merely by regulating our carbon dioxide emissions, environmental groups are unwittingly encouraging the continuation of this scandal, one of the greatest ethical tragedies of our time.  I hope Rev Durley can speak out about this ongoing injustice.

The World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2014---world share of nuclear energy lowest since 1980s.

                                  Nuclear power`s share of global energy production has dramatically fallen from 17.6% in 1996 to 10.8%.  The shift in new generating capacity has been to "renewables".  The average age of the world`s reactors has climbed to 28 years and more than 170 units, or 44% of the total, are more than 30 years old.   In the US in particular, older, non competitive plants have been shut down, thanks to enormous government subsidies for renewables, and the temporary natural gas boom, thanks to fracking.  New construction is not keeping up with the shutdowns .Even leaving aside the shut down of Japan`s 48 reactors following Fukushima, the number of operating nuclear  plants has fallen to 388, 50 less than the peak in 2002.Of the 67 nuclear reactors under construction, at least 49 are behind schedule, some due to the hysterical temporary halt in construction after Fukushima; others due to the inflationary increase in costs.

UK drivers sold out by the Westminster greenie politicians. Eleven million diesel drivers face massive extra costs.

                             Britain is being sued by the EU Commission for breaching air pollution limits as emissions ( nitrous oxides and particulates) from diesel cars are contributing to tens of thousands of premature deaths each year. Mr E King the President of the AA said that drivers were encouraged to go for diesel as there was hysteria over carbon dioxide.  This is the big  greenie lie and deception promoted by the greenie politicans at Westminster and their unknowledgable lackies in the media, the "environment" correspondents of the broadcheets, the self appointed "experts"  many of whom know little about the environment!  The lie that carbon dioxide emissions from humans is harming  the environment!

                  It was Brown who brought in the scheme to penalise those vehicles that emitted higher carbon dioxide levels.Tax breaks in the form of lower car tax were given to those who bought diesel vehicles. This when all along it has been the fine particles and nitrogen dioxide from diesel vehicles that are the causes of air pollution not carbon dioxide.  Drivers of diesel vehicles will no doubt remember this betrayal when the general election comes round in 2015.  The greenie politicians were warned at the time that diesel vehicles emit "ten times the fine particles and up to twice the nitrogen dioxide".  Over the past decade the number of diesel vehicles on UK roads has risen from 1.6 million to over 11 million and accounts for a third of all vehicles on UK roads. . Frank Kelly the chair of the Department of Health  committee on air pollution said the public were still being misled about the benefits of diesel cars with plenty of information about CO2 emissions but nothing about the pollution these cars emits.   He said that government policy needed to be founded on the best science available.  This can only be interpreted as a criticism of government policy.

                    It is reported that about 18 cities in the UK could be forced to impose higher charges on diesel vehicles. London is the European capital most polluted by nitrogen dioxide which is closely related to asthma and respiratory diseases. By World Health Organisation (WHO) standards 96 percent of British urban dwellers are exposed to dangerous levels of particulates.  A study by Public Health England has reported that the risk of dying from air pollution in central London is four times higher than in other parts of the country.  The WHO has classed diesel fumes as a cause of cancer.The paticulates in diesel fumes contain soot which has been identified as a cause of increased global warming in places!

75 000 see their investments shrivel!. $1.9 billion German wind energy company goes insolvent!

                            The excellent German site  run by P Gosselin reports(23 July) that the German Prokon wind company has collapsed!  Instead of securing financing from banks and leading institutions, the company attracted capital from private persons,enticing them with promises of high rates of return and a contribution to protecting the climate.In 1995 the company raised $1.9 billion by advertising directly to the public with promises of superb annual returns.  In total 75 000 investors took up the offer. As time went on critics began to accuse the company of using fresh money coming from new investors to pay the returns for the older investors.  They warned it was only a matter of time before the scheme collapsed.  And so it was that on 22 January 2014 the company declared insolvency!  German leading newspaper Der Spiegel reported on this wind power disaster.  Der Spiegel wrote that the woes of this company were not only unique to Prokon but also to many wind park developers all over Germany!  so much for the alarmisst reliance on wind power.
