Before you accept what you read and hear via the mainstream media, and from assorted politicians and advocacy groups, about ‘hottest summers’ or increasing temperatures, consider this:
Really? Do yourself a favour and check out the Landsat photographs of Earth from Space since 1984. I’m making it easy for you; here’s a link to Kiribati - often reported to be disappearing beneath the waves. Just click on the LINK for this photograph:
8. Perhaps you think that wind turbines are a wonderful way to reduce ‘carbon [sic] emissions’ in electricity generation, and thereby ‘save the planet’?
And then there’s the manufacture of the mechanisms, the blades, the magnets, the wiring, the delivery and construction, etc.. All of these things involve considerable ‘carbon [sic] emissions’ - there's no avoiding this! Very conservatively, it will take at least 15 years before a turbine could possibly just break even! And then there's the ‘minor’ problem that if the wind doesn’t blow - either strong enough, or too strong - the turbines don’t work, so there has to be a constant back-up running, including to provide heating in freezing conditions. Of course, there is also another ‘minor’ (?) problem of the massive killing of wildlife - birds and bats (and aren’t environmentalists supposed to concerned about such matters?), to say nothing of the problems for both livestock and humans caused by infra-sound. (Don't believe this? There’s a standing offer for people to spend a holiday living in one of the now-abandoned farm-houses to test this out for themselves. It’s a fair offer!) And then there’s the fire risk as these things burst into flames quite regularly as their bearings give up - what a wonderful thing to happen during our bushfire period. I could go on. (Click on photo links for interesting stuff!)
(It was because of The Cold War,and the emphasis on making bigger bombs, for which this technology was useless!)
Do you know that the Norwegians turned on their first Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor in April, 2013? (Link) What? Didn’t hear about it? (Refer to the adage quoted above about newspapers and good news!)
There’s lots more; I’ve mentioned that our planet is greening, and plant growth is increasing, but you most certainly will not know anything about these things unless and until you are all prepared to open your minds and look!
Now that’s interesting! To quote James Delingpole on “Breitbart”: “NOAAgate: ‘ocean acidification’ could turn out to be the biggest con since Michael Mann’s Hockey Stick!”
It seems that empirical data withheld by key scientists shows that since 1910 ocean pH levels have not decreased in our oceans as carbon dioxide levels increased. Overall the trend is messy but more up than down, becoming less acidic. So much for those terrifying oceans of acid that were coming our way! (Click HERE for details.)
Now here’s an interesting thought! These black balloons are supposed to be filled with CO2, aren’t they? But wait! CO2 has a molecular mass of 44 – so it’s heavier-than-air. (That’s why it’s used in fire extinguishers: it’s safe in almost every type of fire, it cools as it’s released due to adiabatic expansion [effectively coming out as ‘snow’], and it goes down to smother flames!)
Think about that! .... How is CO2 from any source supposed to defy the laws of physics and go floating ‘up there’ to wreck our climate? (True, there will be some mixing, especially in windy conditions, but its’ natural tendency is to go down!)
Don’t believe it? Don’t trust me? Click on the balloons' links to get the facts!
Don’t believe this claim? Especially when “97% of climate scientists” say we’re all doomed?
Well here’s a challenge for you! (A $10,000[AUD] Challenge, in fact.)
All you have to do is to provide a conclusive argument based on empirical facts that increasing atmospheric CO2 from fossil fuel burning drives global climate warming!

By the way, not one ‘expert’ has taken the money in over three years. Perhaps that might tell you something!)
