It would matter little if Tom Karl were found guilty of scientific fraud tomorrow and exiled to the moon. The UN’s Paris treaty and others like it will continue unhindered. Because ‘Climate Change’ is not about science or data anymore. Rather, it provides the perfect tool to push the UN’s leftist agenda.
Reblogged from Breitbart London
The US government’s main climate research agency has refused a request by House Republicans to release key documents concerning the controversial issue of whether or not there has been a “pause” in global warming.
Despite being a public, taxpayer-funded institution, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) insists that it is under no obligation to provide the research papers, as demanded in a subpoena by Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas).
Gosh. What vital information of national secrecy importance could NOAA possibly have to hide?

Excellent Driessen summary of the gobal economic and humanitarian disaster that could result out of this months Paris climate treaty, in the name of environmentalism.
We should lead from behind – instead of with brains in our behinds – on this new Treaty of Paris
By Paul Driessen ~
What an unpalatable irony. The 1783 Treaty of Paris ended the Revolutionary War and created the United States. The 2015 Treaty of Paris could end what’s left of our democratic USA – and complete the “fundamental transformation” that the Obama Administration intends to impose by executive fiat.
Meanwhile, as a prelude to Paris, October 24 marked a full ten years since a category 3-5 hurricane last hit the United States. (Hurricane Wilma in 2005; Sandy hit as a Category 2.) That’s a record dating back at least to 1900. It’s also the first time since 1914 that no hurricanes formed anywhere in the Western Atlantic, Caribbean Sea or Gulf of Mexico through September 22 of any calendar year.
Global temperatures haven’t risen in 18 years…

One of the basic tenants of the UN and that of most ‘catastrophic global warming’ believers, is that we should all curb our carbon footprints to live “Sustainably” so that Malthus would be proud.
Their holy advice on how to achieve this includes – switching from red meat to bugs and insects, no AC, sleeping with pets for warmth (Gillard AU Gov), even cutting back on vacations. etc etc etc.
If the global warming zealots, those organising and attending the Paris gabfest, are so convinced that Mother Earth is going to hell in a hand basket, WHY don’t they use conference technology like Skype to help “save the planet”?! And I’m not being facetious.
Practice what you preach UN, UNEP, IPCC, WMO, Sierra Club, Greenpeace et al.
Guest essay by Eric Worrall
Christopher Booker, one of Britain’s most prominent climate skeptics, has written a brilliant expose about the shambolic leadup to the Paris COP21 conference. One of the most striking features of Booker’s expose, is just how little money countries have pledged towards the “$100 billion” green fund.
According to the Australian Financial Review;
At the end of this month 40,000 politicians, officials, green activists, lobbyists and journalists from 195 nations will converge outside Paris – at Europe’s largest airport reserved only for private jets – for a conference they hope will change the world.
Their declared aim is to agree on a treaty that commits to such a massive cut in greenhouse gas emissions that the earth’s temperature is prevented from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius higher than when the climate began naturally warming again two centuries ago.
The chief obstacle to such an agreement…

“Climate change”, “global warming”, “global weirding” was is never about science and empirical evidence proving a theory and the false prophecies wrong. It is a classic eco-religion that advances many of the lefts socialist agendas; wealth redistribution, population control, Malthusiansism, earth-worship, anti-capitalism, and throw in the UN’s one world government agenda 21.

Andrew Bolt: I’m telling you, there’s a lot of fear out there. So what I do is, when I see an outlandish claim being made…so Tim Flannery suggesting rising seas this next century eight stories high, Professor Mike Archer, dean of engineering at the University of NSW…
Robyn Williams [ABC chief science reporter]: Dean of science.
Andrew Bolt: Dean of science…suggesting rising seas this next century of up to 100 metres, or Al Gore six metres. When I see things like that I know these are false. You mentioned the IPCC report; that suggests, at worst on best scenarios, 59 centimetres.
Robyn Williams: Well, whether you take the surge or whether you take the actual average rise are different things.
Andrew Bolt: I ask you, Robyn, 100 metres in the next century…do you really think that? Robyn Williams: It is possible, yes. The increase of…

The most John Cook will ever be accused of for blatant climate deceit, is an excess of virtue.
Hell will freeze over before (taxpayer funded) climate catastrophists like Cook ever make retractions.
Five years ago I pointed out that claims of ice loss at East Antarctica are idiotic. John Cook then ran a three part series attempting to twist logic and common sense into his usual mindless nonsense.
NASA has now confirmed that I was correct.
Zwally’s team calculated that the mass gain from the thickening of East Antarctica remained steady from 1992 to 2008 at 200 billion tons per year, while the ice losses from the coastal regions of West Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula increased by 65 billion tons per year.
I’m sure we can expect a three-part correction from climate fraudster John Cook any minute now.
Like the old sailors say, “The wind is free … but everything else costs money.”
(Handy analysis. Tks Paul)
By Paul Homewood
We saw the headlines last week of claims that wind power is now the cheapest source of electricity. As I pointed out at the time, such claims ignore the fact that wind needs back up capacity, and therefore cannot be directly compared with conventional, dispatchable capacity.
I have now had a chance to do some detailed costing, based on the EIA calculations that they published in June.
