“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
The (now standard) violence perpetrated by Climate Change activists at the UN’s latest climate boondoggle in Paris, is further proof that Left-wing ideology is the natural home of the barbarian.
The mob violence and vicious hatred of the modern Leftist (Climate activist) exposes the sham behind such preachers of peace, tolerance and ‘climate justice’.
Bertrand Russell is right :
Much that passes as idealism is disguised hatred or disguised love of power.
A frightening thought is that these Leftist ‘ideologues’ are of the very same tribe that we are to entrust with global energy policy.
Think globally, arrest locally
France puts global warming alarmists under house arrest, having worked out that they’re actually a menace. Just 24 so far, but it’s a start:
French climate change activists have been placed under house arrest ahead of the opening of the UN climate change conference in Paris …
Green groups have described the move as “an abuse of power” but the French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said the activists were suspected of planning violent protests.
“These 24 people have been placed under house arrest because they have been violent during demonstrations in the past and because they have said they would not respect the state of emergency,” he said.
They must remain in their home towns, report to the local police three times a day and abide by a nightly curfew until December 12, when the climate change conference winds up.
Global warming protesters in Paris show their commitment to a better word by trying to smash police with rocks:

Paris gets the party started #COP21
The latest last chance to save the world has begun, with just 200+ arrests so far.
Here we go again, the biggest names in the political and climate world are gathering to pretend that they are intent on saving the world again. Quite simply the Oscars of virtue signalling.
Yet its is (almost) set in stone that this conference is set to fail in its primary objective. That is, to force rich countries to quietly destroy their economies and for the poor economies, with the highest death rates, to reject energy & prosperity.
The Pointman has delved into the details of the Bonn preconference conference and assures us this event is set to fail. Meanwhile there is a timely reminder in a guest post at Bishop Hill on the genuine problem of extreme poverty.
What sets COP events out from the rest is of course the side events, the preening, posing, tears and tantrums. We’ve already had #birthmark. Useful idiots tattooing the CO2ppm of their brithday. #Climatemarch, Some people, led by famous people, waving banners demanding: blue sky, stop climate change, stop sea level rise….

Climate fraudster Al Gore solemnly told the Nobel Committee that the Arctic could be ice-free by 2014
The Nobel Laureate repeated his brainless nonsense in 2009.
Instead of an ice-free Arctic, we just had the shortest melt season on record – followed by record sea ice growth. Arctic sea ice extent is the highest for the date since at least 2004.
Criminals at the New York Times and Guardian told us recently that Greenland is melting much faster than previously feared. In fact, Greenland’s surface is gaining record amounts of ice, with 250 billion tons of new ice over the last three months.
Temperatures in the center of the Greenland ice sheet never got above -5.9C this year, and averaged -29.7C so far this year. Last year’s maximum temperature

Australia’s premier scientific body and hotbed of climate alarmism, the CSIRO, conducted a similar study with similar results, concluding that global warming ‘believers’ are now in the minority.
A recent American study also reflected the same majority shift toward climate scepticism.
Fascinating and heartening results considering the bombardment of largely uncontested climate alarmism and breathtaking propaganda that has been hammered out across the mainstream media for years.

Are prophets of climate doom going out of fashion? The BBC fears so.
Public support for a strong global deal on climate change has declined, according to a poll carried out in 20 countries. Only four now have majorities in favour of their governments setting ambitious targets at a global conference in Paris.
In a similar poll before the Copenhagen meeting in 2009, eight countries had majorities favouring tough action. The poll has been provided to the BBC by research group GlobeScan.
Just under half of all those surveyed viewed climate change as a “very serious” problem this year, compared with 63% in 2009.

‘Green’ energy – wrecking the environment (and people’s lives) to save it.
Tsk tsk tsk.
The hidden costs of wind, solar power
13 November 2015
The state of California has embarked on a 25-year green power odyssey in an effort to reduce the amount of CO2 we place into the atmosphere, all aimed at leading the world in an anti-climate change crusade for humanity.
Beginning in 2030, 50 percent of all electrical power produced for our regulated utilities will be mandated “renewable” energy. This definition under the current law includes energy from solar, wind and small hydroelectric facilities built, or to be built, over that time frame. It excludes residential solar installations and existing large hydroelectric projects such as energy produced from Hoover Dam.
While some of this new power will be “infill” development (smaller solar projects that may be placed in vacant or brown-field urban areas), most of it…

The nefarious intent of NASA/GISS temperature adjustments is no more evident than when dealing with UHI (Urban Heat Island effect).
In every case I’ve seen, there is a consistent pattern of adjusting temperatures ‘up’, in the latter half of 20th century, as cities artificially warm with infrastructure growth, rather than adjusting them ‘down’ to compensate for this well known UHI effect.
This inverse UHI logic, leading to an increase of late 20th century temperatures, is further compounded by massively adjusting mid-century (1940’s-1960’s) temperatures ‘down’!
Cooling the past and warming the present, to fit the ‘global warming’ narrative.
This is scientific fraud and it-is-a-crime.

There are only ten GHCN stations currently operating in South Africa, and only one of these, Calvinia, is classified by GISS as rural. It has a population of 9000, and is situated inland in the Northern Cape province.
|Airport Y/N?||Pop K|
This is the actual temperature trend at Calvinia, based on GHCN V2 raw data in 2011.
There has been no warming since the start of the record. Yet the current version of GISS, which is based on adjusted GHCN data, has miraculously morphed into a sharply rising trend.
Temperatures prior to 1989 have been marked down by around 0.7C, and those 1940’s ones by even more.
So, what about the other nine sites? We have three with…

The much more comprehensive and accurate satellite data shows us that the last time there was any ‘global warming’, at all, was when Bill Clinton dumped his own legacy in the White House. “I did not have sexual relations with that woman.” – 1998.
Earth’s atmosphere has not warmed for decades, as shown by both satellites and radiosonde data.
However, the White House is desperate to create a fake climate legacy, and had their employees at NOAA and NASA tamper with temperature data – so that 100% fraudulent headlines like this could come out ahead of the Paris conference.
The only record being broken is the amount of data tampering going on at government agencies.
Until the latest massive fraud push ahead of Paris, NASA and NOAA both made it clear that Earth was not warming significantly this century.
Satellite temperatures make it clear that the NASA/NOAA graphs are nonsense.
Here in the US, we have been having progressively less hot weather – with the last three years being among the least…

“If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth
as a killer virus to lower human population levels.”
– Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh,
patron of the World Wildlife Fund
Prince Charles blames global warming junk science, not radical Islam, as the root cause of the Syrian Civil War
The Syrian crisis that is spreading terror across the world was prompted by climate change, the Prince of Wales has claimed…
‘Some of us were saying twenty-something years ago that if we didn’t tackle these issues you would see ever greater conflict over scarce resources and ever greater difficulties over drought, and the accumulating effect of climate change, which means that people have to move.
‘There’s very good evidence indeed that one of the major reasons for this horror in Syria, funnily enough, was a drought that lasted for about five or six years, which meant that huge numbers of people in the end had to leave the land.’
Andrew Bolt fact checks the deep-green Princes claim :
The International Food Policy Research Institute warns that overpopulation and overstocking in the arid Middle East will make droughts worse:
Drought is a recurrent and often devastating threat to the welfare of countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) where three – quarters of the arable land has less than 400 mm of annual rainfall, and the natural grazings, which support a majority of the 290 million ruminant livestock, have less than 200 mm. Its impact has been exacerbated in the last half century by the human population increasing yearly at over 3%, while livestock numbers have risen by 50% over the quinquennium.
Australian researchers predict global warming will actually bring more rain to key parts of the Middle East:
The prospect of climate change sparking food shortages and water wars in the Middle East is less likely than previously thought, with new UNSW research suggesting that rainfall will be significantly higher in key parts of the region.
Syria gets a drought – like it so often does – albeit one more prolonged than most:
“Israel is no longer drying up and the severe drought ended two years ago,” Water Commissioner Alexander Kushnir told “Globes TV” today [October 2, 2013]. “We’re emerging from the drought, and the water sector has stabilized at a supply rate for the next 10-15 years.”
We’re reminded that far worse has happened in Syria before, without man-made emissions being blamed:
The Akkadian empire flourished in the third millennium BC. Sometime around 2,200 BC drought hit, the lands dried and people migrated from urban centres. The government then collapsed, and the mighty empire began to falter in a series of calamities collectively referred to as the third-millennium Mesopotamian urban crisis.
In fact, the IPCC concedes there is little evidence that global warming (which has paused for 18 years) has brought more droughts around the world:
In summary, the current assessment concludes that there is not enough evidence at present to suggest more than low confidence in a global-scale observed trend in drought or dryness (lack of rainfall) since the middle of the 20th century…. Based on updated studies, AR4 conclusions regarding global increasing trends in drought since the 1970s were probably overstated.
The harvest in Syria this year is again good, leading the United Nations World Food Programme to plead for a ceasefire to let farmers bring it in and transport the food to where it’s needed.
More evidence that global warming is not causing food shortages but, if anything, record harvests. The US Department of Agriculture’s Foreign Agricultural Service/ has just reportedthat the world’s wheat production has just set “a new record” and world corn production “is up”. Rice production is only very slightly below the record harvests of 2013/2014. Corn production this year in Turkey, Syria’s northern neighbour, sets a record.
Similar picture from the International Grains Council of increasing food production in this era of “global warming”:
So let’s sum up. There’s been no statistically significant warming for 18 years. No one is sure whether more warming will bring more rain or less to the Middle East. There is little evidence that warming of world over the last century has brought more droughts, although Syria had a bad drought that ended four years ago, before the rise of the Islamic State. Democratic Israel survived the drought without difficulty. Syria is much more vulnerable to drought with so many more poor farmers and livestock. Syria has had worse droughts before. World food crops are actually increasing.
Prince Charles is a reckless scaremonger and denier of the science.

Cuts to the bone, and funny as hell too!

Prince Charles’ capitalist hypocrisy, so brazenly blinded by a deep-green misanthropy, described nicely by Bertrand Russell …
“Much that passes as idealism is disguised hatred or disguised love of power.”
By Paul Homewood
It seems the inbred, soon to be our next King, has been making a fool of himself again. Speaking at the “Inclusive Capitalism Conference” (whatever that is) in London, he has called for “an end to capitalism as we know it in order to save the planet from global warming.”
The Telegraph report:
Prince Charles has called for an end to capitalism as we know it in order to save the planet from global warming.
In a speech to business leaders in London, the Prince said that a “fundamental transformation of global capitalism” was necessary in order to halt “dangerously accelerating climate change” that would “bring us to our own destruction”.
He called for companies to focus on “approaches that achieve lasting and meaningful returns” by protecting the environment, improving their employment practices and helping the vulnerable to develop a new “inclusive capitalism”.
