2010 is the hottest year since...?

1500BC, or maybe 5100BC?  The CO2 levels 7000 years ago were a lot less than today. The point is that the temperature has been changing on earth for millions of years, and the real question is, is the current temperature increase within normal bounds or an outlier? This is the crux of the Climate Change […]

Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past

The predictions from ten years ago about UK winters from The Independent – March 2001:

Greg Combet does not want Australia to be prosperous

Australian Labor/Green Alliance Minister for Climate Change and Energy Efficiency Greg Combet said yesterday “Our reliance on coal-fired power generation has made us prosperous.” However Greg Combet obviously does not want this prosperity to continue, as he wants to tax coal fired power stations out of existence.

Tuvalu is not sinking under the sea

The poster boy of the Climate Change religion is the pacific Island of Tuvalu.  To quote UN Climate official Christiana Figueres speaking at the Cancun 2010 United Nations Climate Change Conference who said:  “Tuvalu, The Maldives, Kiribati, Vanuatu are looking for ways of evacuating their entire populations because of salt water intrusion and sea level […]

If you don't believe in Climate Change, we will force you to believe.

The Climate Change alarmists are getting frustrated with the Australian population, and its growing climate change skepticism. If individuals or countries do not toe the Climate Change Religion line, then its time to use force.

The latest survey from Essential Media shows that the majority of Australians do not believe that Climate Change is caused by mankind.

Mike Rann wants to make sure that South Australia has more expensive power

South Australian Premier Mike Rann tweets “Announcing that SA wants to set the toughest emission limits anywhere in Australia for electricity production.” and “The  C02 emission limits we are proposing would effectively prevent the construction of new coal fired power stations in SA.”

That guarantees South Australians will be paying more for their electricity.  South Australians […]

Wikileaks and Climate Change

Even though proponents of Climate Change will tell you its all pure science and no politics, it really is nearly all politics and hardly any science.  The wikileaks cable talking about the Saudi-Arabian minister:

“Is Al-Naimi the Problem?
