Is Carbon Dioxide worse than Satan?

When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity; when many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.”

(Attributed to Robert Pirsig)

These 3 questions need to be answered in this order of priority:

  1. Is climate changing globally?  (There has been no measurable warming for 19 years, and zero increase in the frequency, scale or intensity of extreme weather events)

  2. If climate is changing globally, is anthropogenic CO2 the cause?  (Emissions caused by human activity have been rising, though they are still only a tiny proportion of the total of atmospheric CO2)

  3. If climate is changing globally, does the change present a danger to human life?  (So far, even after many years of  dire predictions from the UN’s IPCC, there is no evidence whatever that human life is threatened either by climate change or increasing CO2 levels.)

Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming – It is just another religion – isn’t it?


Why you need to be careful reading Climate predictions made by the Met Office.

by Dr. Geoff Dobson

This year the UK Met Office has made two important announcements about Climate Change.

The first was a revision of their temperature forecast for the next seven years. It seems that it has finally recognized that there has been no rise in Global Temperature for the last 15 years; and that this trend is likely to continue over the next few years because we are in a period of low solar activity. It is worth comparing what they say now with the corresponding pronouncement a year ago. In that forecast they predicted a temperature rise of 0.5°C between 2010 and 2020. That corresponds to 5°C per century – even above the wildest dreams of the IPCC. It will be interesting to read what they write at the end of this year if temperatures actually go down as some solar scientists are predicting, or if the next IPCC report due in September is more realistic than in the past.

The second pronouncement was that 2012 was the wettest year since records began, and that there was a trend to ever increasing rainfall due to climate change. But they cherry picked the data by starting from 1910 and ignoring some previous peaks. In fact they have rainfall records going back to 1766. The graph shows that there is no trend to increased rainfall in the UK and in fact 1768 and 1872 were wetter than 2012. The report on this in the Independent did attempt to have some balance by commenting that 2012 was only the third wettest year on record, but did not mention that the overall record shows no upward trend.

What this all means is that, as Steve McIntyre (Climate Audit) has remarked, “when reading official pronouncements on climate change, you need to watch the pea very closely”.

The graphs are shown below.

The next chart is what they were telling us before they sneeked out their revised version at Christmas:

And now the rainfall story – was 2012 the wettest year ever?

At last! The Beginning of the End of the Global Warming Scare

If you have been worried by the constant stream of prediction, over the last 20 years,  of imminent catastrophic man-made climate change, and the dire consequences thereof, you can finally rest easy.

report published by the IPCC (the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) last week  finally admits that scientists can’t say with any reasonable degree of confidence whether the climate will be warming or cooling in the next 20-30 years.

In addition, because the “man-made signal” is negligible relatively to the climate’s natural variability there can be only low or medium confidence in computer model predictions of any rate of change in the frequency of  extreme weather events.

Similarly there can not be a high degree of confidence in conclusions that the tiny proportion of atmospheric CO2 gas which can be described as “man-made” is capable of causing any observable climate change.

This report must surely mark the beginning of the end of the most expensive confidence trick in history.  Politicians, and the BBC of course, will not suddenly abandon all pretense of belief in the scam, since to do so would make them look foolish, and, anyway, many of them are still making plenty of money from it.

Eventually, however, the whole thing will be forgotten and swept away to become a sort of cautionary tale, like the story of the South Sea Bubble.  No doubt some leading British politicians are already planning strategies that will enable them, in the future, to claim to have saved the country from the scam, much as Sir Robert Walpole did back then – not before he had made his own fortune out of it, naturally.

Newsweekballs

We know this is not specifically about living in France, but we print it as it helps to illustrate the scandalous way in which the media has persistently tried to scare the public with “Global Warming”, now called “Climate Change” or “Climate Chaos” since there has been no credible evidence that any significant warming is happening.

Thanks to Christopher Booker, writing in the Sunday Telegraph, for the following anecdote:

Inevitably the devastating tornadoes that killed more than 300 people in the US prompted Newsweek to ask: “Is global warming responsible for wild weather?” The answer, it found, is “yes”.

Another Newsweek article cited “the most devastating outbreak of tornadoes ever recorded”, killing “more than 300 people”, as among “the ominous signs that the Earth’s weather patterns have begun to change dramatically”. But that article was published on April 28, 1975, when Newsweek listed the US tornado disaster of 1974 as one of the harbingers of disastrous global cooling, heralding the approach of a new ice age.

Journalism is often the career taken by the laziest people and the dullest minds.  They always used to say, “Don’t believe everything you read in the papers”.  Now you know why.
