The CSIRO used to be a highly credible, constructive scientific research institution and one that all Australians could be proud of but not anymore. For some years now, its subservience to Labor Government climate change propaganda has destroyed its once proud reputation and sadly its independence.
Its latest doom-filled prediction according to CSIRO Research Scientist, Pep Canadell is that the planet’s temperature is on track to rise by 4 to 6 degrees by the turn of the century.
Now that is your typical Nostradamus type prediction wheeled out regularly by the CSIRO and let’s not underestimate what Pep’s doing here – Pep’s predicting a climatic event that will happen in 80 to 90 years.
O.K. some might be impressed but it’s an easy call and a safe bet for Pep. It’s taxpayer’s money he’s spending, not his own and of course, most of us won’t be here to find out whether Pep Canadell is an absolute idiot or indeed brilliant.
Mind you a far more constructive prediction would be the discovery of a formula for controlling the climate because we all know that the climate always changes. However, the obvious absence of such a solution just highlights the pointless nature of this kind of scaremongering perpetrated by Pep Canadell and the CSIRO.
If you think I’m being harsh then the absurdity of the CSIRO’s regular alarmist predictions can be highlighted quite simply.
In Queensland on Monday (3/12/12) the television news services were dominated by the dramatic forecast for the next day. The predicted temperature was 39 degrees for Brisbane.
We were dramatically warned about the need to protect ourselves during this one day crisis. We were even instructed, despite the expensive ‘gold plating’ of energy networks which was supposed to cure blackouts, to avoid using electricity during peak periods so the network could handle the extra consumption.
So the overall message was; please folks, we know you’re paying top dollar for electricity but go easy with your air conditioners and avoid washing clothes until after 8pm.
That irony aside, apart from the typical ‘vultures at a feast’ media syndrome that prevailed, given that this was just a one day event, the 39 degree day in Brisbane simply didn’t happen.
Never the less the media had done enough scaremongering to create panic amongst the less informed which is not much different to the CSIRO’s aim with its constant climate propaganda.
But here’s the point. The Bureau of Meteorology was one degree out. In Brisbane it only reached 38 degrees. So what you might ask?
This climatic prediction was made less than 24 hours prior to the event and it was wrong. The weather bureau got it wrong by one degree – not much you might say but Pep Canadell wants us to believe that he can get it right in some distant future and wants us to believe that not only, won’t he be one degree out, in fact in relative terms – he’ll be spot on.
Why isn’t Pep doing the weather? If he’s got that kind of accurate fortune cookie, predicting what the weather will be tomorrow should be an absolute doddle for Pep.
But here’s another dose of reality which exposes the cruelty and the insult sold by those at the CSIRO, the ABC and others who like to scare us about rising temperatures and the like.
In February 2012 over 300 people lost their lives in Europe due to the prevailing cold temperatures and it was an event that wasn’t predicted. Some estimates put the death toll at over 400 people with nearly 2,000 people hospitalized for hypothermia and frostbite as a result of the lowest temperatures seen in decades.
Why didn’t Pep and others at the CSIRO predict that event? They might have saved a few lives. This is the obscenity of those like Pep and many others who participate in the global warming conspiracy – they are the ones in climate denial – it’s not the so called sceptics. Pep Canadell should try telling the families of those who died due to the extreme cold in Europe that they should worry because the temperature’s going up a few degrees in 100 years. I’m sure they’ll pay attention.
Of course there’s no money in predicting decreasing temperatures, that kind of heresy doesn’t fit the Labor government carbon tax model. So if you’re a scientist, the road to profit is assured when you predict higher temperatures in some far off distant future because no proof is required and no one is held to account if the prediction is wrong. In fairness to Tim Flannery, even though his crystal ball gazing was way off the mark at least he made predictions which were relevent to our times. Trouble is he got found out when the opposite happened and Pep Canadell won’t make that short term mistake.
My argument isn’t about that particular cold event that took so many lives, as if it’s some kind of basis for making a prediction about a drop in temperatures no – it’s the stark reality that the climate cannot be controlled or predicted and certainly not in the long term like the CSIRO would want us to believe.
I’ve already written an article on this website highlighting the recent open letter from 129 scientists who slammed the UN for perpetrating this scam. A scam based on no real evidence and one supported by so-called models that are already running contrary to climate reality.
I’ve already written about the UK Meteorology Office and its recently released data from 3000 weather sites located around the globe that shows that there has been no discernible rise in temperatures over the last 16 years. Even its data covering the previous 16 years showed little rising variation and prior to that, during the previous 40 years, temperatures were stable.
Contrary to the alarmists we are even experiencing less extreme weather events currently than in previous years – so much for the hysteria over Hurricane Sandy which was used by these charlatans to further their scam.
There is now almost conclusive evidence in the real world that the effect of CO2 on temperatures is completely unknown. That it’s not the big demon it’s been made out to be. You can’t have a rise in CO2 levels, which is the case and not see a corresponding rise in temperatures over the last 16 years and think your case for all this hysteria about CO2 is proven.
Yes, the climate is changing and there is nothing we can do about it other than to adapt as humans have always done. Some scientists will tell you that contrary to supposed rising temperatures, we are moving into a cooling period and heading quite possibly to an ice-age.
In any event, it would be far more constructive if the CSIRO spent its time and the $1 billion of taxpayers’ money on researching ways by which we can adapt to temperature variations regardless of whether they are up or down.
Far better I would suggest, than becoming a joke by paying lip service to Gillard, Combet and the like and making far-off predictions that most sensible people just cannot take seriously.
But what is really heartbreaking given the propaganda that prevails in relation to rising temperatures, is that people die in the cold far sooner than they do in the warmth – that it’s easier to remain cool than it is to keep warm. Just ask the relatives of those 300 plus people who lost their lives because of colder than predicted temperatures.
Furthermore, that the world’s food supply would more than likely benefit even if Pep’s rising temperature predictions proved to be true.
So if the world did in fact get warmer how bad would that be? And don’t talk about rising seas the jury is still way out on that one.
Even if Pep’s right, should we really be spending all this money and making this sacrifice to achieve a 0.0038 degree reduction in 100 years? On his reckoning of a 4- 6 degree rise there’s not much point.
Please forgive this repetition on my part. It’s from a previous article on this website, ‘PROOF THAT THE WORLD IS NOT WARMING’ and I repeat it here to again make the point;
A few years ago, UNIPCC Committee Member, Japanese scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award winning PhD environmental physical chemist, described the warming fears as the “worst scientific scandal in history” and “when people come to know the truth they will feel deceived by scientists.”
Dr. Itoh was one of around 24 scientists who resigned from the original 56 member IPCC Committee when UN employed, unqualified activists edited and exaggerated their submissions to produce the flawed climate change document that western governments, including Australia’s worshipped as something to be taken really, really seriously.
To all you fools in government, the CSIRO, ABC and to all those in the media who support this scam – your day of reckoning is nigh.
Of course the trouble is these people know how to make a buck and their game is obvious. They simply make predictions so far into the future like Pep Canadell does – in the hope that we won’t be around to discover their giant fraud. They’re probably spot on with that prediction.
