UAH says Australia Cooling at -.927C per decade for last 5 years

No wonder Climate Comm, Karoly and the “Angry Summer” brigade leave out UAH satellite data from all of their alarmist propaganda reports!

UAH is a satellite temperature dataset, developed at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Last month UAH added AUST to its satellite data temperature set. AUST is Australia.

According to UAH, Australia is cooling at -.927C per decade over the last 5 years and cooling at -.291C per decade over the last 10 years.

UTTER INSANITY: Spending $160b to cut the temperature by 0.00005 degrees

The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up 
with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, 
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these
dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself
.”
– Club of Rome,
premier environmental think-tank,
consultants to the United Nations

We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.

– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation

No matter if the science of global warming is all phony…
climate change provides the greatest opportunity to
bring about justice and equality in the world

Topher strikes again:

What is the TRUE cost of climate change? Is stopping it early really the cheapest plan in the long run? 50 to 1 explores the costs of stopping climate change vs adapting to it as and if it’s required, and uncovers a simple truth; it’s 50 times more expensive to try and STOP climate change than it is to simply ADAPT to it as and if required.

Topher works out that Labor’s global warming policy would after 10 years cut the world’s temperature by 0.00005 degrees at a cost of $160 billion.

The global warming faith has robbed our politicians of all reason.

Full length interview with Christopher Essex

Topher interviews Christopher Essex, Professor of Applied Mathematics, who promptly ‘flips the checker board’ with questions about the very validity of such a thing as ‘Global temperature’.

Full length interview with Donna Laframboise

Topher interviews Donna Laframboise, former journalist turned investigative author. Donna has critiqued the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s claims about itself, its authors and its peer review process, and found them very VERY wanting…

Full length interview with Marc Morano

Topher interviews Marc Morano, accused ‘criminal against humanity’ and alleged ‘central cell of the climate denial machine’ and gets an insiders look into the politics and collateral damage caused by clumsy political responses to fears about climate change.

Full length interview with Fred Singer

Topher interviews Fred Singer, atmospheric and space physicist and long time hero of the environmental movement, and finds out why he founded the NON Governmental Panel on Climate Change and why he’s taken a high profile stand against the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

Full length interview with Henry Ergas

Topher interviews Henry Ergas, a high profile Australian economist with a lot to say about carbon taxes and emissions trading schemes, and discovers some of the underlying reasons why politicians love carbon taxes and emissions trading schemes and why these ‘markets’ always seem to fail.

“We live in constant fear of the adverse impacts of climate change. For a coral atoll nation, sea level rise and more severe weather events loom as a growing threat to our entire population. The threat is real and serious, and is of no difference to a slow and insidious form of terrorism against us.

Sinking islands call for NZ action – NZ Herald 3/9/2013

MAJURO, Marshall Islands – A tense opening session of the 44th Pacific Islands Forum has been dominated by appeals from Pacific leaders for ‘real action’ against the threat of rising sea levels associated with climate change.

•••

Current status of sea level rise within the region:

 THE MARSHALL ISLANDS

Since the end of the last ice age, The Marshall Islands have survived 130 metres of sea-level rise, but the last 1.43mm/year since 1950 is going to sink them, therefore compensation must be paid for by Western nations!

NOAA tide gauge in the Marshall Islands shows sea level rising at 1.43 mm/year – less than 15cm per century *

Since the end of the last ice age, sea level has risen 130 metres:

* NOTE from WattsUpWithThat on Marshall Islands and their sea level changes:

This is the sea level graph (from Kwajalein) recently being circulated and claimed to show an alarming acceleration of a proposed general sea level rise.

Yes, this curve rises fairly rapidly from 1990 to 2012. But for what reason and with what regional message?

clip_image002

This is a sea level graph (from Majuro) and is shows a general sea level stability from 1992 to 2010.

No traces of any acceleration!

clip_image004

It looks like Kwajalein is affected by a local subsidence induced by building construction (or some sea level “correction” in order to have it going up).

The Majuro records, for sure, contradicts and acceleration claim; even a general “rise”.

In conclusion, don’t “hang your hat” on the Kwajalein graph. Look around and observe!

KIRIBATI

Alarmist cries of rapid sea level rise and Pacific Islanders losing their homes are completely unsubstantiated by empirical evidence and peer-reviewed science. The catastrophic message essentially stems from statements by the thoroughly discredited Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and promoted vigorously by Governments pushing their own climate agenda and vested interests angling to cash in on climate guilt..

Apparently no one attending the Pacific Forum bothered to read the latest science from New Zealand researchers on why many Pacific Islands are actually growing and not sinking:

NZ research shows Pacific islands [growing] not shrinking

From TV New Zealand:

An Auckland University researcher has offered new hope to the myriad small island nations in the Pacific which have loudly complained their low-lying atolls will drown as global warming boosts sea levels.

Geographer Associate Professor Paul Kench has measured 27 islands where local sea levels have risen 120mm – an average of 2mm a year – over the past 60 years, and found that just four had diminished in size.

Working with Arthur Webb at the Fiji-based South Pacific Applied Geoscience Commission, Kench used historical aerial photographs and high-resolution satellite images to study changes in the land area of the islands.

They found that the remaining 23 had either stayed the same or grown bigger, according to the research published in a scientific journal, Global and Planetary Change.

“It has been thought that as the sea level goes up, islands will sit there and drown,” Prof Kench told the New Scientist. “But they won’t.

“The sea level will go up and the island will start respondingKeep Reading »

South Pacific Islands are not sinking. Claims they are due to global warming driven sea level rise are opportunistic.

The purported plight of The Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Tuvalu and other Pacific Island nations serve merely as emotional arguments to promote Government and global climate agenda for carbon (dioxide) taxes, whilst cash-strapped Pacific Island nations use the associated climate guilt as a vehicle to pursue compensation to be paid by Western nations. Economic outcomes in line with the United Nation’s wealth redistribution agenda.

UPDATE 2015

Two years has passed from first publishing this post, and there is still no sea-level rise in the Pacific islands that 40,000 COP21 Paris climate delegates and climate catastrophists assure you are “drowning”.

These are the same Pacific islands that Australia’s warmist PM, Malcolm Turnbull, has just granted USD $1,000,000,000 (One Thousand Million Dollars) to help stop a sea level rise that isn’t happening. Breathtaking insanity and a hubris that would make King Canute blush, ultimately defrauding Australian taxpayers of their hard-earned money.

Did anyone in the Australian government google “Pacific Island sea-level rise data” before pledging a billion to the UN? Silly question.

If someone in government had spent 10 minutes and 10 cents googling, they would have found no cause for concern at all :
