Coal-fired power is dead Update…
Good news for Australia’s flailing economy. It’s a pity that the hard-green lobby and climate elites have successfully demonised coal under the weight of “global warming” hysteria, shifting hard to green-energy madness mode, selling more coal than Australia uses, making energy prices skyrocket, pushing jobs, industry and ’emissions’ offshore.

From the Daily Caller:
Environmental activists are fuming over Japan’s plans to build as many as 45 new coal-fired power stations in the coming years.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is still firmly behind plans to build coal plants, despite repeatedpressuresfromenvironmentalists to stop construction of the major new coal plants. Abe wants more new coal plants to make sure the island nation isn’t too reliant on any one source of electricity.
“Japan needs to import 95 per cent of all its energy sources,” Tom O’Sullivan, an energy analyst with Mathyos Global Advisory in Tokyo, told Australian Broadcasting Corporation. “So it’s trying to diversify its fuel sources and it doesn’t want to be too reliant on any one market.”
Most of the coal Japan plans to burn in these plants will be imported from the U.S. or Australia. The country is also building additional…

Rather inconvenient news for promulgators of CO2-induced Climate Change fear, doom and gloom…

Study of historical hurricane occurrences in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea, during the period 1749 to 2012, reveals that “the hurricane number is actually decreasing in time.”
Rojo-Garibaldi, B., Salas-de-León, D.A., Sánchez, N.L. and Monreal-Gómez, M.A. 2016. Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea and their relationship with sunspots. Journal of Atmospheric and Solar-Terrestrial Physics148: 48-52.
Although some climate alarmists contend that CO2-induced global warming will increase the number of hurricanes in the future, the search for such effect on Atlantic Ocean tropical cyclone frequency has so far remained elusive. And with the recent publication of Rojo-Garibaldi et al. (2016), it looks like climate alarmists will have to keep on looking, or accept the likelihood that something other than CO2 is at the helm in moderating Atlantic hurricane frequency.

Debunking the L A Times story claiming new study shows human caused warming doubled western U.S. area burned since 1984Posted: October 13, 2016
As evidence for anthropogenic global warming theory dwindles, with widespread debunking of the favoured canaries of doom (like the recent record September Arctic sea-ice growth along with its decadal recovery) the CAGW obsessed mainstream media will simply double down on their falsehoods to reinforce their ideologically driven agenda.
They certainly won’t re-evaluate or tell truths about “global warming”, as too many jobs, money and reputations are now at stake.

The October 10, 2016 Times article addresses a study recently published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences where the authors claimed that through the use of large scale climate models and annual wildfire data from 1984 to 2015 they determined that man made climate change increased the aridity of wildfire fuel by 55% which doubled the area of the western U.S. that burned during this period.
This latest story is significantly different in its presentation of a supposed wildfire connection to climate change versus a wildfire story which was published in the Times on October 18, 2015 where Governor Brown’s attempt to link man made climate change to wildfires was unsupported by fire experts.(
In October 18, 2015 Times article wildfire experts unsupportive of Brown’s position noted that:
“But climate scientists’ computer models show only that global warming will bring consistently…

The high priests of the Global Warming faith embracing Nuclear!
Sound the death knell for unreliable energy – wind/solar – as a fanciful baseload alternative to fossil fuels!
What a truly catastrophic disaster – environmentally, socially and economically the feel-good ‘Green’ energy experiment has been.

Huffpost has published a very supportive post, about New York State embracing nuclear power as an equal player in the low carbon energy game.
The Game Changer: New York’s Clean Energy Standard and Nuclear Energy
For years, I’ve said that when it comes to the challenge of fighting climate change, we will need every tool available to reduce carbon pollution and create opportunities for new clean energy technology.
Yet, despite a world that demands more carbon-free energy – not less – public policies have left some of the tools in the toolbox. Until now.
In August, with the help of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s leadership, the New York State PSC took unprecedented action in passing a Clean Energy Standard that, in addition to ensuring ample opportunity for more wind, solar, and energy efficiency, recognizes the important role of existing carbon-free…

Breitbart reports on the Luvvies’ Love In at St Tropez:
Leonardo DiCaprio sounded a dire warning at his charity foundation’s annual climate change gala in St. Tropez Wednesday night, telling the dozens of celebrities and dignitaries in attendance that they represent the “last generation” that has a chance to halt the deleterious effects of global warming.

Add another to your list of climate change, global warming, global weirding, climate disruption or whatever they call it next, that causes anything and everything.
What a sad/sick joke this climate scam has become.
According to Reuters, in Guatemala, young girls don’t get raped because they are stalked by filthy perverts, who are shielded by what appears to be a rape enabling culture; Apparently Climate Change is to blame.
Women’s organisations – and funders – are increasingly seeing climate change as a root cause of women’s problems
COPENHAGEN, May 20 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Carla Lopez remembers the first time she heard a suggestion that climate change was a factor leading to the rape of young girls.
“I was in Santa Maria Xalapan of Guatemala when a group of women said young girls were being kidnapped and raped because there was a water crisis. It was a revelation,” said the…

Thanks for another great year of excellent work and in particular getting some serious runs on the board in exposing the NOAA / NASA et al fraud.
Was chuffed for you and your efforts, watching Ted’s senate hearing ‘dogma over data’ and seeing your graphs used and logged as evidence!
Your tireless work makes such a difference and keeps a lot of people sane, confident and happy for our future, amongst so much climate insanity and fraud that abounds.
Wishing you and fam a safe and happy Xmas and a brilliant new year!
Future President Ted Cruz recently held a Senate hearing on climate which featured the two graphs below showing the various stages of NOAA’s vandalism of the US temperature record.
The graph on the left was published by NOAA around 1999, and shows about 0.5F data tampering, which flatlined after 1990. All of the adjustments were upwards at that time.
I generated the equivalent graph for 2015, which now shows about 1.5F data tampering – three times as much as they did in 1999. All of the pre-2000 adjustments are now downwards (previously were upwards) indicating that these hacks are simply making it up as they go – and not doing any actual science.
Next graph shows the 1999 and 2015 versions overlain at the same scale, and normalized to 1910-1920. There has been massive additional tampering, and the post-1990 flatline is now a hockey stick.
