Green's Witch or GreenSwitch?

The Christian Science Monitor (20/4) has reported a fraud in the Carbon Offset Market.

A company called GreenSwitch was selling "green power" certificates. Very noble of them, NOT! They didn't buy the renewable energy in the first place.

"In January, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) ordered GreenSwitch's parent company, Global Green Plan, to buy 4,000 certificates at a cost of about US$128,000. Then the agency took offsetter Prime Carbon to court over false claims it was affiliated with the National Stock Exchange and approved by the Australian government."

The ACCC Chairman, Graeme Samuels has reported
• SAAB had a dubious tree planting claim;
• Avoid a Japan-based offset promoter.

Point Carbon pointed out the same day that "Carbon credits stolen during a phishing scam were transferred to accounts in Denmark and the UK."

Meanwhile, the Huffington Post (20/4) asks: "Can Carbon Offsets Save the Planet? Don't Bet on It"

The article is written by the Editor of the Christian Science Monitor.

Which leads me to the question - Are Christian Scientists the only Scientists we can trust these days?

IPCC report is inaccurate and dishonest

A third of the IPCC report is inaccurate and dishonest

A Press release by the President of Australia's Climate Sceptics Party

Sir / Madam,

In 1922 there was a concern that the globe was overheating
In 1970 the scare was that an ice age was looming.
Now we have climate scares come and go regularly. Mixed with other scares such as running out of fossil fuels and mass species extinctions.

So, to know if these scares are real or not, we need truthful hard nosed science that can be relied upon.

So let's examine the 2007 Climate Change report by the IPCC.
Forty researchers from 12 countries have just checked out every one of the 18,531 scientific sources cited. They found that almost a third of them – 5,587 – were not peer-reviewed at all, but came from newspaper articles, student theses, even propaganda leaflets and press releases put out by green activists and lobby groups.
On top of this the IPCC predictions of Global Temperatures rising from 1998 has not eventuated for over a decade.
And the predicted sea level rise has stopped over the last 4 years.

Therefore the "accepted" science of the IPCC is not science at all. It's a politicised, compromised and deceitful compilation of misinformation and scares. In reality the word science should not be associated with it. Science fiction would be more appropriate.
Unfortunately our Prime Minister has swallowed this report unquestioningly AND he will still use it as the reason to bring in an ETS if he wins the next election.
