Climate Conference keeping warm on fossil fuels

At https://notalotofpeopleknowthat.wordpress.com/2017/11/14/how-green-deleg... ... which takes us to a an investigative journalist who discovered the current Global Warming conference in Bonn (but hosted by Fiji) uses fossil fuels to heat the conference hall - diesel generators in fact. This comes on top of all the air flights generated to get to the venue - using fossil fuels. You can't make it up. These people are so up themselves they are upside down in logic.

Recent Warming

At http://notrickszone.com/2017/11/09/new-paper-most-modern-warming-includi... ... a new paper claims that two thirds of climate warming since 1750 is due to solar causes - not what the doom mongers want to hear (or their paymasters in Renewables and the hedge fund managers invested in them). It seems the IPCC have shown a preference for modeled reconstructions of solar activity. This is rather strange but then this is climate science (mainly model generated).

Antarctic Volcanoes

There has been lots of talk about volcanoes beneath the West Antarctic peninsular and now we seem to have proof - see www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?release=2017-291 ... as a NASA study adds evidence that a geothermal source (a mantle plume) lies deep under Antartica's Marie Byrd Land. This may thus be able to explain why the West Antarctic peninsular has been unstable recently, in direct contrast to the large block of Antarctica which has stubbornly remained very cold and surrounded by lots of sea ice.

climate policy and wildlife

At https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2017/11/04/will-climate-change-controver... ... although the political story is interesting there is something else that may interest SIS members, a video of Benny Peiser talking to Fritz Vahrenholt on renewables and the effects on nature and wildlife. Benny used to be a member of the SIS council - back in the old days when he was a bit younger and all that. Scroll down to the first comment, by Oldbrew.

Scamming the People

At https://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2017/11/01/energy-customers-foot-the-bil... .. yes, the headline reads, energy customers footing the bill for our failed climate policy - as perpetuated by the politico class steered on such a course by the Green Blob (via lobbying and countless doom mongering articles by so called scientists). Obviously, he that can afford a few roof top solar panels avoids being scammed, to some extent, but we all pay the costs passed on to business by the price we pay for goods made in this country. No wonder Chinese prices look so attractive.

Round Up

In this instance, not a round up of animals but the commercial brand of a weedkiller that you will find on the shelves of your local garden centre. The Risk Monger has been fighting a lonely battle against environmentalist activists but now has a new ally it would seem - go to www.bishop-hill.net/blog/2017/10/21/who-science-not-the-iarc-josh-391.html ... which comes with a cartoon. Round Up contains glyphosphate which the Green Blob want to ban - for no especial reason apart from the fact the American manufacturer is Monsanto (with all the demonisation that comes with that name).

climate goings on

It is often depressing to read CAGW stuff but you are rarely far away from it especially in the media with its constant thump thump of doom and gloom, even when there is something positive to address. An example of the doom and gloom spreading more doomery can be found at https://wattsupwiththat.com/2017/10/15/collapse-of-global-warming-decept... -- which is Dr Tim Ball getting despondent about some upcoming lawsuits intended to shut him up and nobble the sceptical majority.

Worse then Ponzi

Move over Ponzi - forget about Bernard Madoff. Ignore the Enron scam, and sniff at mortgage debt leading to bank collapse, one Judith Sloan thinks the Renewables Energy schemes adopted by politicos in Australia and Europe are worse than all of them - go to http://wattsupwiththat.com/2017/10/09/aussie-revolution-mounting-high-le...

Younger Dryas Hurricanes

At https://phys.org/print426427240.html ... considering recent wailing by the CAGW fraternity, hurricanes have increased because of global warming (ignoring the fact hurricanes have been short in supply in recent years) research has thrown up an anomaly. During the almost Ice Age conditions of the Younger Dryas episode hurricanes, surprisingly, were fairly frequent in nature - as far as Florida was concerned.

Ian Plimer

New book by Australian geologist Ian Plimer, 'The Climate Change Delusion and the Great Electricity Ripoff' ... sure to zoom into the best selling lists. He is a professor emeritus in the Earth Sciences at Melbourne University and a professor of mining geology at the University of Adelaide.
