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.
Since then a whole host of vested interests have produced a series of models predicting doom and gloom to perpetuate the global warming myth.
Of course, to create a model all you need is the appropriate data to produce your desired result. Most of us intelligent folk know that, yet the apocalyptic nonsense about global warming and climate change, based on modeling, has spooked the world. In turn this has given rise to green industries and the finance industry who promote the concept in their own financial interests and of course; the green tax payer funded subsidies and carbon tax stupidity exercised by Labor and the Greens in Australia.
These are the politicians with no ability whatsoever to think for themselves and who are intent on taking us all back to the dark ages and making life very expensive along the way. Let’s assume for a moment that there are some good intentions in that lot but hang on, you can’t really give them that credit because as far as taxpayers are concerned it’s all pain and absolutely no gain. It’s a financial and lifestyle sacrifice that will do absolutely nothing to reduce emissions.
In a highly disturbing piece of commentary four years ago, Geologist, Dr. David Gee, Chairman of the 2008 Geological Congress said. “For how many years must the planet cool before we begin to understand that the planet is not warming? For how many years must cooling go on?”
Well enough! The scam is up. Over the weekend a set of conclusive figures was released by the UK Met Office and predictably ignored by the general ‘Left wing’ media which confirms that global temperatures for the last 16 years, from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012 have not risen.
The data compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea also confirms the cyclic nature of our climate and the fact that no one really knows what causes fluctuations in temperature. At the very least you cannot argue that carbon dioxide is the nasty culprit. That clay castle just got washed away. You can’t have it both ways. If carbon dioxide was as bad as they say then the world’s temperatures over the last 16 years should have soared – they didn’t.
The stable temperature ‘plateau’ has now lasted for at least as long as the previous period, 1980 -1996 which saw a slight rise in average temperatures. Prior to that, temperatures had declined or remained stable over a period of 40 years. Now that is reality and not the hypothetical rubbish that the climate-change charlatans would like us to believe.
We also know that we cannot even rely on the accuracy of a weather forecast for tomorrow or even next week yet these idiots want us to believe that they know what the weather will be in ten, twenty or fifty years’ time.
A few weeks ago the folk from the Climate Change Institute, those who promote Labor and Green propaganda along with the CSIRO, were in Queensland providing yet more nonsense to support the carbon tax. Professor Will Steffen was predicting that sea levels are rising and will continue to rise sufficiently to wipe out a whole host of coastal suburbs along the Gold Coast. Apart from the fact that in reality sea levels have been stable for the last decade, have these people no shame, no conscience?
These are the folk like Tim Flannery who falsely predicted a few years ago that Queensland would never again experience heavy rain and its dams would never be full again. This doom and gloom, apocalyptic prediction was promptly followed by two major floods and dams which are 90% full and have to be regularly monitored to ensure that the neighborhood isn’t flooded again.
Similar stupid predictions were made across the country and have found to be false and misleading. This kind of scare-mongering has resulted in highly expensive desalination plants, built by Labor state governments, paid for by taxpayers which are now in mothballs. Now they want us to believe more stupid predictions that will undoubtedly, on past form, be proven false.
In any event, anyone who believes in the absurd notion that man or woman, by mucking with less than 0.1% of our atmosphere, can control the climate is, arrogant, naive or downright stupid. That’s notwithstanding the impact on our atmosphere caused by solar activity. I can only assume that scientists who conform and promote this propaganda are for the most part, in it for the money. Worse! It’s all built on a lie and that doesn’t include Julia Gillard’s big fat lie; ‘There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead’.
Well known British, and very green environmentalist, Dr. David Bellamy, who we might expect to be in the doomsayer camp, has claimed that we need more carbon dioxide not less. Given the planet’s growing shortage of food his statement makes a lot of sense.
Dr. Bellamy is not alone. According to Geoffrey G. Duffy Professor, Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Auckland NZ, “Even doubling or tripling the amount of carbon dioxide will virtually have little impact, as water vapour and water condensed on particles as clouds dominate the world and always will.”
It’s about time that Tony Abbott and the Liberals stopped supporting this insane rubbish and make an announcement to confirm that position. Please give us a point of difference. It’s not just about removing the carbon tax it’s also about removing all the other expensive green stuff based on the same idiocy. Take a leaf out of Queensland Premier Campbell Newman’s book and abolish the lot.
Yes. We all have a duty to protect our environment but the world is a much cleaner place than it was 50 years ago without any green schemes and a carbon tax and we should continue to encourage cleaner ways to do things BUT! A message to Labor, Greens, Rob Oakeshott, Tony Windsor, Andrew Wilkie plus all the other academics whose careers are funded by maintaining the carbon tax lie;
Fess up, admit you’re wrong and GO AWAY!
I can assure you that ‘the children of the future’ will not be grateful because if we stay on the road we’re on, they’ll still be paying the bill for your combined stupidity in thinking that you can actually control the climate.
