Somebody else that does not buy the idea Easter Islanders soiled their own nest as proposed by environmentalists a few years ago. It's getting pretty clear they invented the idea to sell their politicised theory that humans are breeding so fast we will shortly run out of resources and there will be global warfare as nations compete for the dwindling raw materials vital to modern life (and that is without taking into account the food issue).

Climate change news
Could every town have its own small nuclear reactor - see www.climatechangenews.com/2016/07/27/could-every-uk-town-have-a-small-nu... ... as an alternative strategy to building large and expensive nuclear plants such as Hinckley Point. The nuclear industry see the UK as a spearhead as we are getting perilously close to regular black outs. However, looking at it from a non partisan view I would think the security issues would be a major problem - and one of the commenters says much the same thing.
At https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2016/08/04/the-us-renewable-fuel-standar... ... is a bit of old fashioned investigative journalism by Marita Noon and Christine Lakatos. Those with special access (crony capitalists) and influence (lobbyists) have cashed in on various green energy programmes and benefited from the mandates by politicians, the rules as set and the regulations confirmed. Its a huge scheme - with huge profits.
Upcoming climate conference is being advertised on the web, but with a difference. This one is sceptical of climate science claims and climate models and bloated hot air from stale people. It has some cutting edge science, the redoubtable Piers Corbyn, and lots of evidence contrary to the mainstream money laundering operation.

At http://phys.org/print388854293.html ... video surveillance at solar power towers in California have revealed flying animals such as birds and bats and various insect species on the wing, from bees to butterflies, dragonflies and wasps etc are killed by intense heat (cooked in flight and seared to a cinder). It seems Greens are not too concerned with wildlife in spite of what they spout self righteously - and we all know they couldn't give a fig for those knee deep in fuel poverty.
In Down to Earth 96 (August 2016, ISSN 0969 3408), we have an article by geologist Brian Ellis who has been looking at records and visiting the site of a glacier that once filled the Nigard Valley in Norway, one of the outflows from the major Jostedal ice cap north of Sogn fiord. It goes back to the Little Ice Age and concerns documents of landowners complaining that tenant farmers had not paid their rent and court records from the same farmers who complain their farm is being overcome by advancing glaciers.
We seem to get a lot of people thinking in a lopsided manner nowadays - but it seems climate scientists take the biscuit in this department (or should that be a tin of biscuits or cookie jar). At https://wattsupwiththat.com/2016/07/24/nasa-global-warming-observations-... ... the climate scientists seem to be quite blatant now with their tricks and spin and don't even mind letting the sceptics know first hand they are fiddling the books. Why?
Oh Dear. Auntie has been caught telling porkies. Doom monger Roger from Auntie has been on the air waves - he even provided the words for Mr Shukman to strut on the 6.00pm news (July 20th). However, at https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2016/07/20/hottest-june-no... ... has the real story. The dregs of the 2015/6 El Nino are coming to a close and we are still being harangued that global warming is to blame. The hottest June was back in the 1999 according to satellite data (the dregs of the 1998/9 E Nino).
At https://tallbloke.wordpress.co.uk/2016/07/13/environmental-effect-of-inc... ... you can download a full paper by Arthur Robinson, Noah Robinson, and Willie Soon. The Abstract reads ... a review of research literature concerning the environmental consequences of increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leads to the conclusion that increases during the 20th and early 21st centuries have produced no deleterious effects upon Earth's weather and climate. Increased carbon dioxide has, however, markedly increased plant growth.
