Western climate change alarmists won’t admit they are wrong

CLIVE JAMES  from The Australian extract from the essay Mass Death Dies Hard by Clive James

When you tell people once too often that the missing extra heat is hiding in the ocean, they will switch over to watch Game of Thrones, where the dialogue is less ridiculous and all the threats come true. The proponents […]

Climate of Complete Certainty

Bret Stephens in the New York Times

When someone is honestly 55 percent right, that’s very good and there’s no use wrangling. And if someone is 60 percent right, it’s wonderful, it’s great luck, and let him thank God.

But what’s to be said about 75 percent right? Wise people say this is suspicious. Well, and what about […]

Bureau of Meteorology ‘altering climate figures’

The Australian has a report about the Bureau of Meteorology modifying climate records from stations so that past temperatures look lower, making modern records look hotter. This is based on work by Jo Nova. This came up in Adelaide with the heatwaves in 2014, where the Bureau of Meteorology stated that Adelaide had surpassed its […]

Climate Commision closed down, Tim Flannery out of a job

The Climate Commission -  global warming alarmist propaganda organisation – has been closed down by the incoming Abbot Federal Government.  As well the part time chairman Tim Flannery has lost his part-time job which paid $180,000 per year. Now we need to get rid of the hundreds of public servants who work for the Federal […]

IPCC - We got it wrong on warming


Its only based on leaks coming out of the IPCC, but it looks like the exaggerations of the last 20 years by climate alarmists are going to finally be wound back. The warming since 1997 which has been close to zero has forced the IPCC to rethink the computer modelling and finally admit that it […]

Climate alarmists get more frustrated, and dismiss carbon taxes

Two interesting articles today show the irritation of Climate alarmists, and how frustrated they are with the progress of their political agenda aimed at forcing the general population to accept radical climate change policies.

Guy Pearce has written a new book that advocates that Australia not export any more coal (something even the Greens have given […]

Arctic Sea Ice coverage higher than last year

Arctic Sea ice coverage is higher than 2012, as well as 2011 and 2007.  Yet another example of climate alarmists making predictions about the future that do not come true.

In 2007 the BBC published an article quoting Professor Wieslaw Maslowski that the Arctic would be ice-free by 2013. Yet here we are in 2013, and […]

Do CFCs cause climate change?

Another example of the science  not being “settled”.   Qing-Bin Lu, a professor of physics and astronomy, biology and chemistry at the University of Waterloo has found a strong correlation between the levels of CFC’s  (chlorofluorocarbon) and the levels of warming in earths atmosphere. The problem to be explained is why the climate has been cooling […]

It's not drought, it's climate change, say scientists

Is it any wonder that people are sceptical about Climate Change predictions made by scientists. From the Age Melbourne August 2009.

“A three-year collaboration between the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO has confirmed what many scientists long suspected: that the 13-year drought is not just a natural dry stretch but a shift related to climate change.”

The Tim Flannery prediction years

As it rains all over South-Eastern Australia causing rivers to flood and dams to overflow, many people have commented how silly Climate Commissioner Professor Tim Flannery’s predictions of permanent drought in Australia are now. It looks even sillier when you look at a long term rainfall map for Melbourne showing the very short dry period […]

Australia goes it alone with a Carbon Tax

The Copenhagen Climate Change talks in 2010 failed to produce a binding Climate Change agreement.  Durban in 2011 fails as well. The result in Durban was not a binding agreement to reduce carbon dioxide output, it was an agreement to negotiate an agreement sometime before 2015, and that hypothetical agreement will cut emissions starting in […]

Greenland has been warmer in the past

Greenland has been warmer that currently several times in the last 8000 years. That is Greenland has been warmer than today, with lower levels of Carbon Dioxide levels that today. Two studies have been released over the past few weeks that show that there was less Artic Sea Ice than today, and higher temperatures.

The University […]

"we haven’t had snowfall like this in more than 140 years"

New York City has its earliest snowfall in 140 years. 2 million people are without power in the North Eastern United States.

If this had been a long heat-wave the advocates of the AGW religion would be telling us all how this was all caused by global warming. However when its the first significant snowfall in […]

England has it coldest summer in 18 years

The carbon dioxide levels go up every year. The IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) forecasts show that the world should be warming more and more, yet observation does not match those computer models.

England has had its coldest summer since 1993, with an average temperature of 15C. The normal average is 17C. This is not […]

Sea level rise slowing

You will not find the head of the Climate Commission Professor Tim Flannery mentioning this, because he prefers scaremongering high sea levels that are above the IPCC estimates. You will not hear Malcolm Turnbull mentioning this as he wants to respect the science  and ignore “less reliable”  scientists that do not fit in with his […]

The end of sunspots?

While the Gillard Government and the multiparty committee on Climate Change plot to tax Australians with a Carbon Tax, the Sun is doing something completely different. The Federal Government and its trained Climate Change Commission like to deny any link between the suns activity and global temperatures. However the Maunder Minimum of low sunspot numbers […]

Climate Change Commission increases the scare-mongering

The Climate Commission headed by Professor Tim Flannery is not making much headway with its support of its employers carbon tax, the Federal Government Labor/Green alliance.  So today Tim Flannery is spruiking the Department of Climate Change report Climate Change Risks to Australia’s Coasts. It made the South Australian news as Tim Flannery and his […]

Climate Commission predicts the end of the world

The “independent” Climate Commission has released its first report. The “independent” Climate Commission was appointed by an Australian Federal Labor/Green alliance government that wants to introduce a carbon tax. So the Federal Government appointed members to the Climate Commission that would endorse the Labor/Green alliance views.  And surprise, surprise, it has produced a report that […]

Perisher Ski Resort to open early

Well what a difference nearly ten years make.  In 2002 the CSIRO was predicting that Global Warming would reduce the snow cover on Australian ski resorts. They said “that scientific modelling suggests a very real threat exists to snowfields in both New South Wales and Victoria”

Nine years later, and Perisher Ski Resort opens three weeks […]
