All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

France to drop carbon tax plan

Source: GWPF
It appears to be all crumbling for the elites:
  • Brexit against their wishes;
  • The Paris agreement;
  • Trump wins popular vote in US;     and now
  • France to drop carbon tax plan.

The French government is set to drop plans to introduce a carbon tax, French financial daily Les Echos said on Thursday. 
The newspaper, quoting several sources, said the socialist government will not include the carbon tax in a draft 2016 budget update currently being discussed. 
Environment Minister Segolene Royal had said in May that France would unilaterally introduce a carbon price floor of about 30 euros ($33) a tonne with a view to kickstart broader European action to cut emissions and drive forward the December 2015 United Nations-led international climate accord.
Meanwhile, Roger Helmer (@RogerHelmerMEP) has posted on his blog



I was recently discussing Lysenko with a friend (as you do), and naturally, we turned to Wikipedia to clarify a point.  And I came across a quote that hit me between the eyes (figuratively speaking);
“The term Lysenkoism can also be used metaphorically to describe the manipulation or distortion of the scientific process as a way to reach a predetermined conclusion as dictated by an ideological bias, often related to social or political objectives”.
Dear Reader, you’re way ahead of me.  Yes, of course, I was struck immediately by the read-across to climate science.  The parallels are remarkable. (Read more)

Roger Helmer continued by comparing Lysenkoism to 
the parallels with climate theory:
Lysenkoism was restricted to the USSR.  And it was imposed by a totalitarian régime that could, and did, shoot dissenters.  Climate alarmism, on the other hand is broadly speaking global (even if some countries merely pay lip-service to the orthodoxy).  It is imposed not by a violent autocracy, but by an intolerant and often vindictive establishment – scientific, media and political.  It threatens not imprisonment and murder, but the destruction of careers.  Scientists who dare to challenge the prevailing view are denied tenure, and publication, and perhaps worst of all, grant funding.

The pushers of so-called “renewable energy” lie.


Terry McCrann, writing for the Herald Sun, reveals the truth about renewable energy:

The experts lie about renewable energy

THE first and most important thing to understand about global warming true believers and the pushers of so-called “renewable energy” is that they lie.
 They lie effortlessly, seamlessly, continuously and without the slightest sense of shame. They lie deliberately and carelessly and casually, and even when they don’t realise they are lying. They lie without the slightest sense of self-awareness and with all the pomposity of stupidity aforethought.

Terry says that the International Energy Agency (IEA) used to be "a sober international agency, comprised of real energy experts and built on old-fashioned expertise."

However, as Terry says, they '
succumbed to the “greatest moral challenge of our time” more accurately known as Global Warmism. Kool-Aid became the house beverage not of choice but of mandatory consumption.'

And speaking of consumption, they 'claimed' that

“Renewables have surpassed coal last year to become the largest source of installed power capacity in the world.”

It is a claim so utterly ludicrous, so instantaneously false, that in any other context it would be stunning and a generator of endless ridicule.

It’s tantamount to claiming electricity-powered cars have overtaken petrol-driven ones on the world’s roads. 




Invitation to Climate Hustle Screenings in Sydney, NSW

Scorching temperatures. Melting ice caps. Killer hurricanes and tornadoes. Disappearing polar bears. The end of civilization as we know it! Are emissions from our cars, factories, and farms causing catastrophic climate change? Is there a genuine scientific consensus? Or is man-made “global warming” an overheated environmental con job being used to push for increased government regulations and a new “Green” energy agenda?

CLIMATE HUSTLE answers these questions, and many, many more. Produced by CFACT and CDR Communications in the one-of-a-kind entertaining and informative style that has made CFACT’s award-winning ClimateDepot.com one of the world’s most sought after sources for reliable, hard-to-find facts about climate issues, this groundbreaking film tears the cover off of global warming hype, and exposes the myths and exaggerations of this multi-billion dollar issue.

CLIMATE HUSTLE, hosted by award-winning investigative journalist Marc Morano, reveals the history of climate scares including global cooling, debunks outrageous claims about temperatures, extreme weather, and the so-called “consensus;” exposes the increasingly shrill calls to “act immediately before it’s too late,” and in perhaps the film’s most important section, profiles key scientists who used to believe in climate alarm but have since converted to skepticism.

Temperatures: Who do you believe? RSS or GISS?


From 1979 to 2001, the graphs for global temperature from the RSS satellite data and the NASA:GISS data are rising at the same rate.

However, from 2001, RSS data show temperatures have fallen. GISS's massaged data shows temperatures are still rising.

And of course, the alarmists will, surprise - surprise, say that 2017 is



the hottest year evah!

CO2: Is it polluting; OR, is it Greening atmosphere?

Donald Trump's New Head of the EPA, Myron Ebell, sent an email containing this:


Projected on to the EPA building last night. 


Professor Tim Ball addressed this with:
I have never heard Myron deny climate or climate change.If they make such charges they should provide evidence. If they can't then they should be prosecuted for false statements.

SO; Who are the TRUE DENIERS?

The Deluded who have been indoctrinated for the last 20+ years?

Or the citizens who believe that CO2 is greening the atmosphere?

AND - WHO WERE THE CLOWNS -

who projected this stupidity?

NASA's tricks exposed by ClimateGate emails

President-elect Donald Trump says he will slash NASA's climate change budget:

Donald Trump expected to slash Nasa's climate change budget in favour of sending humans back to the moon - and beyond (source)
AND why shouldn't he slash NASA's budget? NASA cheats.

Here is Gavin Schmidt, in a letter to Senator Malcolm Roberts on the 1940s Temperature.
"You appear to hold a number of misconceptions which I am happy to clarify at this time," Dr Schmidt told Senator Roberts in letters and emails obtained by Fairfax Media. "The claim that GISS has 'removed the 1940s warmth' in the Arctic is not correct."  From the Canberra Times

The Climategate scientists discussed their desire to get rid of the 1940s spike

It would be good to remove at least part of the 1940s blip, but we are still left with “why the blip”.

As Tony Heller explains: by 2013, they had done exactly what they wanted to – removed the 1930s-1940s blip

ScreenHunter_158 Apr. 13 05.51
They accomplished this by an impressive 2 degrees (3.6F) of data tampering, lowering 1940 temperatures and increasing present temperatures.

Just a few of the Latest Reports.


Study: UHI in Hong Kong accounts for most ‘warming’ since 1970

How much warmer has Hong Kong’s urban area become during the past 4 decades?
Characterising the urban temperature trend using seasonal unit root analysis: Hong Kong from 1970 to 2015
Scientists from Macao Polytechnic Institute are pioneers in exploring urban temperature in Hong Kong using seasonal econometric models. In particular, the characterization of the urban temperature trend was investigated using a seasonal unit root analysis of monthly mean air temperature data over the period of January 1970 to December 2013.“The seasonal unit root test makes it possible to determine the stochastic trend of monthly temperatures using an autoregressive model,” says Prof. Wai Ming To. “We

Time to Trump the Climate Hysteria

By Viv Forbes
Secretary


To download a print-ready pdf of the whole article plus image click:

The Clexit Coalition has pledged to assist any government or politician seeking to exit the Paris Agreement and to curb the wasteful and destructive UN/IPCC.
The Secretary of Clexit (Climate Exit Coalition), Mr Viv Forbes of Australia, said that Clexit could call on over 190 well-qualified climate realists from 26 countries to provide scientific, business, legal and political support and advice.
See: http://clexit.net/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/clexit-members.pdf

Clexit sees four main priorities:
Firstly, de-fang the Paris Climate Treaty by refusing to sign it, by ignoring any deals signed by others without a supporting referendum, or by giving notice of formal withdrawal.
The Paris Treaty is now a toothless tiger.
Permission is given to reproduce this cartoon providing the source (www.clexit.net) and creator

Secondly, de-fund the global warming industry – no tax-payer funding for the UN/IPCC, no government money for climate tourism or conferences, no government grants for climate propaganda posing as “research”, no tax exemptions for green “charities” and no government subsidies for green energy.
We can start with Australia’s CSIRO:
http://carbon-sense.com/2016/11/12/defund-csiro-climate/

Thirdly, de-staff all government climate bureaucracies.

And fourthly, re-educate – ensure that the climate curriculum in schools and universities is based on good science and real evidence, and not political agendas.
These four actions - de-fang, de-fund, de-staff and re-educate will cool the climate hysteria, with huge and immediate benefits for tax-payers, jobs, industries and energy cost and security. It will also end the doomsday horror stories terrifying our young people. And if there is additional carbon dioxide in the air, our Earth will be greener and produce more food.
Trump is likely to Slash and Burn the Obama Climate policy:

(Both Senator Roberts of Australia and Tim Ball of Canada are Founding Members of Clexit).

The same sceptical questions are being asked in France, Poland, Hungary, UK, Canada, Russia and Germany; even at the Climate Carnival in Marrakech, Morocco: http://clexit.net/2016/11/17/marrakech-papers-by-clexit-members/
Clexit Vice President, Mark Morano, presented a “State of the Climate Report” in Marrakech:

Who is behind the falsified AGW fraud? China? Bankers? Communists?

The Man-made Global Warming hypothesis has been falsified. (see here, here and here.)

Man-made Global Warming hypothesis has been falsified. THAT is a given.

Man-made Global Warming is a fraud.

SO

Who is promoting the fraud?

Well. The Donald  as reported by YourNewsWire says: (link)
Man-made global warming is a hoax perpetuated by the elite to make money and damage the U.S. economy, according to President-elect Donald Trump – and America isn’t going to stand for it anymore.
And my friend, Senator Malcolm Roberts says - as reported by the Australian: (link)
Speaking after his win, Mr Roberts confirmed his belief the UN and international bankers were behind a fabrication of man-made climate change in a bid to make money.
Patrick Moore - Now and then.
ACS Graphic.

Meanwhile, Co-founder of Greenpeace, Dr. Patrick Moore, probably gets closer to the truth:
(He) wrote that, after the collapse of World Communism and the fall of the Berlin Wall, the environment movement was hi-jacked by the "political and social activists who learned to use green language to cloak agendas that had more to do with anticapitalism and antiglobalization than with science or ecology." (Source)
Malcolm may say that it is the bankers: Well, yes, they will make money from  the trading, The Donald, thinks that it is China.

Meanwhile Patrick Moore, the Co-founder of Greenpeace.  nails it.

The dregs of the communist movement, "political and social activists who learned to use green language to cloak agendas that had more to do with anticapitalism and antiglobalization" have moved in to collar the green movement and to help destroy Western democracy.

Brian Cox - Eat your words; Moon Landing People demand empirical evidence

Brian Cox, on his rude, massaged-data-evidence throwing appearance on QandA, asked Senator Roberts if he believed in the moon landing; then spluttered:

"The idea that NASA — I should say to people, by the way, the Australian Academy of Science have done a brilliant — you can never get any sense on programs like this (Q&A), they're adversarial, but the Australian Academy of Science report is superb. I've brought it because I'm going to come and give it to you in a minute for you to have a read. The accusation that NASA, the Australian, the Met Office in the UK, everybody is collaborating to manipulate global temperature data..." (source: ABC)
No, Brian, that was NASA:GISS. The real NASA astronauts, who engineered the moon lannding, have disputed the GISS "scientists."

49 Former NASA Scientists Send A Letter Disputing Climate Change


Some prominent voices at NASA are fed up with the agency’s activist stance toward climate change. The following letter asking the agency to move away from climate models and to limit its stance to what can be empirically proven, was sent by 49 former NASA scientists and astronauts. 
The letter criticises the Goddard Institute For Space Studies especially, where director Jim Hansen and climatologist Gavin Schmidt have been outspoken advocates for action. (Bold added) (source)
AND 100% of Scientists who walked on the Moon agree that man-made Global Warming is total bullshit.

Alarmists on the Marrakesh Express gravy train.

Alarmists are the true deniers!
The Alarmists are in a spin.

Looking at the world

Through the sunset in your eyes

Trying to make the train

Through clear Moroccan skies


They should have the sunspots, not sunsets, in their eyes as the world is seen to be cooling.




According to scientists, this unsettling phenomenon is a sign we are heading for a mini ice age. 
Meteorologist and renowned sun-watcher Paul Dorian raised the alarm in his latest report“For the second time this month, the sun has gone completely blank,” Mr Dorian says.
Sweeping cobwebs from the edges of my mind

Had to get away to see what we could find

Hope the days that lie ahead

Bring us back to where they've led

Listen not to what's been said to you


The Alarmists have been spinning cobwebs over the edges of science. There is not one peer-reviewed paper to demonstrate the man's (and only man's) CO2 emissions are causing dangerous global warming. (Challenge: ANYONE?)

So the Alarmists "Had to get away to" COP22 in Marrakesh.  25,000 odd (and I do mean odd) people flying in from around the world. Can you imagine the size of their carbon footprint?
And their purpose?

One week to save UN climate change talks from Trump


Donald Trump intends to axe billions of dollars in climate finance when they take the White House and Congress in January.
“We are going to cancel billions in payments to the UN climate change programmes and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure.”
Meanwhile, the Alarmists are wasting millions taking the gravy train, or more likely, taking the CO2 emitting planes:
On the Marrakesh Express, they're taking me to Marrakesh  
All on board the gravy train, all on board the planes
They've been wasting all our money just to gather there.

Trump Full Speed astern on Paris Climate Deal.

Valerie Volcovici and Alister Doyle, writing for Reuters:
Donald Trump is seeking quick ways of withdrawing from a global agreement to limit climate change, a source on his transition team said, defying widening international backing for the plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Since Trump was elected, Australia signed the Paris agreement (without the support of the Australian public.) And the Reuters two above say that China has signed. Big Deal! China's agreement was to keep increasing emissions of CO2 until 2030.

To show that Trump is serious in his quest, he has chosen Myron Ebell to head the EPA.

From Scientific American:
Choosing Myron Ebell means Trump plans to drastically reshape climate policies 
By Robin BravenderClimateWire on September 26, 2016 
Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute, is spearheading Trump’s transition plans for EPA, the sources said.

From the CEI site, here is part of Myron's bio:
Myron Ebell is director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and chairs the Cooler Heads Coalition, which comprises over two dozen non-profit groups in this country and abroad that question global warming alarmism and oppose energy rationing policies. 
Ebell holds a B.A. from Colorado College and an M.S. from the London School of Economics. He also did graduate work at the University of California at San Diego and at Peterhouse, Cambridge University.
BRING IT ON!
