Latest Excuse for the Global Warming Pause: The Bali VolcanoPosted: November 30, 2017 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
“The huge Bali Agung volcano has erupted at a convenient time for climate scientists. If the volcano properly blows its top, it buys them a few more years to excuse their failed climate predictions.”
And, recalibrate the busted UN CMIP5 models for their newly embraced “natural variation” ‘phenomenon’!

A NASA Scientist is claiming that if Mount Agung in Bali erupts, it could plunge the world into a cold period for several years.
Bali volcano REVERSE global warming: NASA say Mount Agung could plunge earth into ice age
BALI’S volcano eruption could plunge the earth into a prolonged cold spell as scientists warn Mount Agung explosion could reverse global climate change for up to five years.

And the result will be in a reverse of global warming, as the planet’s temperatures cool instead of increasing as projected.

Polar bears refused to die as predicted and this is how the propheseers respondPosted: November 30, 2017 Filed under: Alarmism Debunked, Alarmist Predictions, Arctic, Climate science, Dud predictions, Fact Check, Failed Climate Models, Michael Mann, Polar Bears, Religion | Tags: arctic, Arctic Sea Ice, Climate Change, Climate Change Religion, Climate science, Dud Predictions, Merchants Of Smear, Michael Mann, Polar Bears, Science and Environment, Scientific Method, Susan Crockford Leave a comment
Belief and “Denial” are the words of zealots, not scientists.
The fact that you have taken on the climate establishment and criticized their failed doomsday theories, with regards to their favourite catastrophe mascot – the cuddly polar bear – “with supporting evidence is precisely why these “leading researchers” feel so threatened and why the paper had to be written.”
It is not surprising that you are being targeted by serial smear merchants like Michael E Mann et al. How dare anyone question their religion and threaten its veracity with solid data and evidence?!
You’ve hurt them and their melting credibility even more with your excellent, objective, data-driven science. Well done Susan!
The truth really does hurt.
The polar bear experts who predicted tens of thousands of polar bearswould be dead by now (given the ice conditions since 2007) have found my well-documented criticisms of their failed prophesies have caused them to loose face and credibility with the public.
Predicted sea ice changes (based on 2004 data) at 2020, 2050, and 2080 that were used in 2007 to predict a 67% decline in global polar bear numbers vs. an example of the sea ice extent reality experienced since 2007 (shown is 2012). See Crockford 2017 for details.
Although the gullible mediastill pretends to believe the doomsday stories offered by these researchers, the polar bear has fallen as a useful icon for those trying to sell a looming global warming catastrophe to the public.
Here’s what happened: I published my professional criticisms on the failed predictions of the polar bear conservation community in a professional online…

Australia Still Relies On Coal For Most Of Its PowerPosted: November 27, 2017 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
By Paul Homewood
I looked at the Australian Live Generation data yesterday, regarding the Tesla nonsense.
But it struck me just how much of the country’s electricity is still coming from coal.
I have just checked out the current position, which shows coal contributing 73%, and gas another 14%.
Wind power is running at a measly 3%.
It is still early morning down under, (and I am off to bed!), but solar is still only up to 6% at the moment. It will no doubt rise during the morning, but will still surely be virtually irrelevant.
Even the renewable wonderland of South Australia is mainly dependent on natural gas.
Perhaps I am missing something, but can anybody tell me how our Antipodean cousins are going to manage when Jay Weatherill and his chums get their way, and do away with fossil fuels?
Somehow I don’t think one of Elon…

ENERGIEWENDE : €1Trillion Low Carbon, Environmentally Sound, Reliable, Affordable Energy Transition Report CardPosted: November 26, 2017 Filed under: BIG Government, Climatism, Energiewende, Energy Poverty, Fact Check, Failed Green Schemes, Green Agenda, Green Energy, Renewables, Solar, Unreliables, Wind Farms | Tags: Climate Change, coal, Energiewende, Energy Poverty, Forests, Fossil Fuels, Fuel Poverty, Germany, Global Warming, Green Energy Failure, green energy scam, merkel, Solar panels, unreliables, Wind Energy, Wind Farms, wind power 1 Comment
IDEOLOGICALLY aggressive “green” Germany has spent €1 Trillion Euros, of other peoples’ money, on windmills and solar panels, under the Energiewende program.
THE transition to a low carbon, environmentally sound, reliable, and affordable energy utopia has been so successful that Germany is now cutting down “ancient forests” to pave the way for the biggest coal-fired power expansion in her history…
WHY not just erect more windmills or solar panels? What went wrong with them?

THE Great Global Warming “Pause”Posted: November 23, 2017 Filed under: Alarmist media, Climate models, Climatism, Dud predictions, Empirical Evidence, Fact Check, Failed Climate Models, Global Temperature, Green Agenda, IPCC, NASA, NOAA, The Pause | Tags: "The Pause", auspol, Climate Change, Climate science, Climatism, COP24, Global Warming, Global Warming "Pause", Global Warming Hiatus, IPCC, nasa, nature, Nature Mag, NOAA, Pal-Review, Peer Review, science, UK Met Office, warming pause 33 Comments
BETWEEN the start of 1997 and the end of 2014, average global surface temperature stalled. This 18-year period is known as the global warming “pause” or “hiatus” and has been the subject of much research and debate in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
THE rise in global temperatures that alarmed climate campaigners in the 1990’s had slowed so much that the trend was no longer statistically significant. This despite one-third of Man’s entire influence on climate since the Industrial Revolution occurring since February 1997.
THE pause took a pause during the 2015/16 super El Niño which was the strongest such event in recorded history and helped to make 2015 and 2016 the warmest years in the modern warm period. However, 2017 witnessed the biggest drop in global temps in recorded history, seen across most data sets, bringing temps back inline with 1997-2014 averages, rendering “the pause” alive and well, to date.
THERE has been a recent surge in media reports aiming to debunk and bury the inconvenient hiatus, not predicted by any climatologist, science agency, government body, media outlet or UN computer model.
A few of the latest attempts by the mainsteam media at re-writing climate history…
BEFORE it “never happened” – established, peer-reviewed climate science was all over the pause.
IN fact, before it was disappeared, the hiatus was central to the IPCC report…

PRESIDENT Tong knows perfectly well that without the U.S. involved in the UN wealth redistribution scam, the fast and furious ‘climate cash’ ain’t gonna come!
HE’S now backtracking from the Kiribati “drowning” scenario, big time, so as not to deter potential investors to his new “5-star” resort plans! After all, who would want to invest in a ‘sinking’ island?!
I jousted with Tong/Kiribati via twitter back in 2013 during the lucrative Obama climate-cash years…

Guest essay by Eric Worrall
The President of Kiribati doesn’t want his people to be seen as climate charity cases – instead he wants investment, new tourist resorts to give his people jobs and economic opportunities, to help pay for reclaiming land from the sea like Singapore.
As climate change threatens islands, Kiribati’s president plans development
The low-lying Pacific island nation of Kiribati is one of the parts of the world most threatened by climate change and rising sea levels. Scientists say the islands could be uninhabitable within decades, and in recent years, some leaders there have begun planning for a worst-case scenario that could involve relocating the population to other countries.
However, in a video presentation to the international climate conference in Bonn, Germany, last week, the president of Kiribati appeared…

‘Green’ Premiers Red-Faced: Wind Power Fiasco Ends in Dirty Diesel DebaclePosted: November 21, 2017 Filed under: Australia, Failed Green Schemes, Fossil Fuels, Green Agenda, Green Energy, Renewables, RET, Solar, Unreliables, Wildfires | Tags: Blackouts, Dan Andrews, Diesel, Energy Poverty, Fossil Fuels, Green Energy, Green Energy Failure, Hazlewood, Jay Weatherill, Josh Frydenberg, SA Blackouts, Solar panels, South Australia, unreliables, Victoria, wind energy scam, wind power Leave a comment
DIESEL generators hooked up to energy networks in Australian states with a heavy reliance on “green” energy as part of a last-ditch effort to keep the lights on this summer!
SO, climate theory obsessed politicians blow up and decommission baseload “dirty” fossil-fuel power stations, to stop bad weather, and replace them with “dirty” fossil-fuel diesel generators to stop blackouts!
YOU literally can’t make up this unreliable-energy-insanity stuff up anymore.
AND the further cost to taxpayers already skyrocketing power bills!!
SA’s Premier: dogged by dirty diesel debacle.
Australia’s ludicrous attempt to run on sunshine and breezes sometimes reads like the farcical plot of an episode of Blackadder or Fawlty Towers.
In a ‘you couldn’t make this up if you tried’ moment, Australia’s ‘greenest’ States, Victoria and South Australia (which has been forced to wear its mantle as ‘Australia’s wind power capital’, more like a crown of thorns), have been reduced to running on diesel generators.
Consumers set to cop cost of diesel back-up
14 November 2017
Victorian consumers could foot the bill for a summer energy plan using diesel generators as a stopgap during periods of peak demand.
In an about-face by the Andrews government, diesel generators will pump up to 100 megawatts of power into Victoria’s energy grid as back-up in case of extreme heatwaves this summer.
The plan by the Australian Energy Market Operator…

WORDS Of Wisdom To A Disciple Of The Church Of ClimatologyPosted: November 21, 2017 Filed under: Alarmism Debunked, Carbon Dioxide, Climate Alarmism, Climate science, Climatism, Empirical Evidence, Energiewende, Energy Poverty, Fact Check, Green Energy, Politics, Religion, Renewables, Sceptics, Solar, Unreliables, Wind Farms | Tags: Alarmism, CARBON DIOXIDE, Climate Change, Climate Change Religion, climate religion, CO2, CO2 Fertilisation, coal, Energy, Energy Poverty, Fossil Fuels, Global Warming, Hans, Patrick Moore, Renewable energy, sceptics, Twitter, unreliables 4 Comments
TWITTER has become a hotbed of debate between staunch believers of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming (CAGW) and those sceptical of the supposed adverse impacts of mankind’s energy emissions on planet Earth.
THERE is little grey area or middle-ground in often heated debates, with the CAGW camp blaming the burning of fossil fuels, namely coal, not only for a >1 degree celsius warming of the atmosphere since 1850, but on literally anything and everything that moves, shifts, spins or tilts upon contact with colourless, odourless, tasteless, non-reactive, trace gas and plant food carbon dioxide!
HERE’S s a list of everything caused by
global warming climate change as of 2012:
LIST OF THINGS CAUSED BY GLOBAL WARMING – CO2 & WHAT IT DOES LIST !!!! LOL !!! A complete list of things caused by global warming
ANY good scientist is a sceptic; if he or she is not, then he or she should not be a scientist. But yet the language of the global warming alarmist, is to accuse anyone who does not believe in man-made climate change as a “denier”, a heretic, a blasphemer. This is the language of religion, not science.
SCEPTICS do not ‘deny’ the existence “climate change” or “global warming”. The earth’s average temperature has been increasing and decreasing since the beginning of time. A climate sceptic is basically ‘sceptical’ of how much of the recent warming can be attributed to the burning of fossil fuels versus natural variation. And, in fact, any slight warming might actually be beneficial. After all, cold weather is twenty times more deadly than hot weather, according to a study published in the British journal The Lancet.
MOREOVER, sceptics acknowledge the remarkable benefits of the essential gas-of-life, carbon dioxide, that has become so politically demonised with a religious zeal rivalling the Spanish Inquisition.
GREENPEACE co-founder and prominent climate sceptic Patrick Moore PhD penned a must read treatise on the benefits of life-giving CO2, noting “This is probably the most important paper I will ever write.“
MOORE looks at the historical record of CO2 in our atmosphere and concludes that we came dangerously close to losing plant life on Earth about 18,000 years ago, when CO2 levels approached 150 ppm, below which plant life can’t sustain photosynthesis. He notes:
A 140 million year decline in CO2 to levels that came close to threatening the survival of life on Earth can hardly be described as “the balance of nature”.
NOW, with 400ppm in the atmosphere, the biosphere is once again booming as many recent studies confirm. He also points out how environmental groups and politicians are using the “crisis” of CO2 increase to drive their own draconian agendas.
CONTROL CO2 and you control energy, thus you control everyone and everything!
AND to the point of this post!
“StormSignalSA” is a rancher and climate sceptic from the great land of South Africa. A recent tweet of his captured the attention of many for a wonderful response to a climate catastrophist who derided “Storm” for his stance on coal.
IT is a brilliant retort in defence of Mother Nature’s mighty black rock that has allowed us to improve human well-being and make the world a better place…
STORED solar energy that will continue to improve the lives of anyone exposed to it and lift millions more out of abject poverty, including the 1.3 Billion who still have no electricity, at all.
ALTERNATIVE energy sources, “unreliables“, are either too expensive, too difficult to access, or simply too inefficient to achieve any meaningful results for the most impoverished.
AMEN to that!

THE Papal Dilemma: Champion Of The Poor or UN Puppet?Posted: November 19, 2017 Filed under: UN, UNEP, UNFCCC | Tags: Africa, Catholic Church, Climate Change, Fuel Poverty, Jesus, Pope Francis, Religion, UN, UNEP 4 Comments
POPE Francis. The 266th and current Pope of the Catholic Church, a title he holds ex officio as Bishop of Rome, and sovereign of Vatican City.
THE Popes close relationship with the United Nations is at first glance an obvious one. However, in the interests of climatism and our never-ending quest to fend for the poor, we have identified an interesting contradiction in this suspiciously cordial relationship.
THE contradiction is a rather simple one. The Popes first and foremost role is to be champion of the poor. Perhaps the ultimate sacrifice as laid out by his boss, JC. As we all know, Jesus was gung-ho about giving his last slice of sourdough to the poorest amongst him.
DOES his numero-uno disciple Pope Francis share the same enduring sacrifice? Let’s find out…
Pope Francis, doing the rounds, giving the poor a shoutout..
WORLDWIDE ELECTRICITY DISTRIBUTION
THERE are currently 1,300,000,000 (1.3 Billion) people in the world who live without any energy at all.
In 2013, the UN’s World Bank approved a new energy initiative that severely limited the funding of coal-fired power plants and projects around the world, meaning developing countries would be unable to obtain access to cheap electricity.
DEVELOPING NATIONS (aka THE POOR)
This is how 1.3 Billion human beings live, right now, without access to cheap, efficient, reliable, hydrocarbon fuels…
Pope Francis’s 2015 encyclical on climate change, “Laudato si’,” sought to leverage the pontiff’s moral authority and draw attention to climate change as a global issue that disproportionately harms the poor.
At the root of the problem, the pope wrote, are a “disordered desire to consume more than what is really necessary” and a “use and throw away culture.” Although he praised efforts by scientists to find solutions to environmental problems, he said, “A sober look at our world shows that the degree of human intervention, often in the service of business interests and consumerism, is actually making our earth less rich and beautiful, ever more limited and grey.”
Peter Forster, the Bishop of Chester, and the Catholic Labour peer and former advisor to two Labour Prime Ministers, Bernard Donoughue, comments on the Pope’s encyclical. The authors share the Pope’s concern for the world’s poorest people. However, they are concerned that the policies advocated in the encyclical, which include jettisoning fossil fuels in favour of renewables, paid for by grants from wealthy countries, do more harm to the world’s poor than they do to help, noting:
“We fully share the concern of the Pope for the severe poverty that is found in many parts of Africa, but to deny the continent a wider access to cheap fossil fuels and electricity generated by them will only serve to embed that poverty.”
