Australian Green Christine Milne Endorses Coal

COAL is life! Well so says Australian Green Christine Milne, who endorses coal:

Australia needs to choose between coal and death, according to Greens Leader Christine Milne …

“Do you want death or do you want coal?

“That’s what we’re talking about here,” she told reporters in Hobart.

“Tony Abbott wants coal.”

Time to pick sides:

Hypocrisy Takes Wing: The Greenpeace Manager Who Flies To Work

OF course we should never look at what our betters actually do: their function is to tell us what to do, not to live up to the rules that they would impose upon us. So it is with those self-appointed moral arbiters at Greenpeace. We should not fly, oh no. For that would be there mere unwashed peasantry enjoying themselves. But when there’s a Greenpeace manager who happens to live in Luxembourg but his work is in Holland it’s fine for him to have a few flights a month to get between the two.

Think I’m kidding?

One of Greenpeace’s most senior executives commutes 250 miles to work by plane, despite the environmental group’s campaign to curb air travel, it has emerged.

Pascal Husting, Greenpeace International’s international programme director, said he began “commuting between Luxembourg and Amsterdam” when he took the job in 2012 and currently made the round trip about twice a month.

The flights, at 250 euros for a round trip, are funded by Greenpeace, despite its campaign to curb “the growth in aviation”, which it says “is ruining our chances of stopping dangerous climate change”.

Monstrously Stupid Recycling Laws Fine People Who Waste Less

PA 19273262 Monstrously Stupid Recycling Laws Fine People Who Waste Less

 

SO, we think there should be less stuff wasted. Sounds like a plan: so, therefore we will fine people who waste less. This is, well, this is monstrously stupid, isn’t it? But it is what the European Union is going to do to Britain. We now waste less paper and glass than we used to. Therefore we are going to be fined.

Recycling rates will fall for the first time in over 10 years due to “green fatigue” caused by councils imposing numerous confusing bins on households, one of the country’s biggest bin collectors has predicted.

The fall will make it almost certain that Britain will miss tough EU targets of recycling half of all household waste by 2020.

A combination of “green fatigue”, declining glass usage, and local authority budget cuts are also likely to have contributed to the fall, which risks the UK having to pay millions of pounds in fines.

The War On Free Speech: Professor Lennart Bengtsson And The McCarthy-Style Witch Hunt On Dissenting Scientists

 

climate mccarthy The War On Free Speech: Professor Lennart Bengtsson And The McCarthy Style Witch Hunt On Dissenting Scientists

 

 

IF you value free speech, you’ll be interested in the news that sceptical views on man-made climate change are being squashed. In echos of the “Climategate” scandal at the University of East Anglia, these new allegations are that a paper by Professor Lennart Bengtsson, a research fellow at the University of Reading, was censored because it contested the UN’s Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that the global average temperature would rise by up to 4.5C if greenhouse gases in the atmosphere were allowed to double.

He tell the Times: “The problem we now have in the climate community is that some scientists are mixing up their scientific role with that of a climate activist…It is an indication of how science is gradually being influenced by political views. The reality hasn’t been keeping up with the [computer] models. Therefore, if people are proposing to do major changes to the world’s economic system we must have much more solid information.”

Professor Bengtsson and four scientists from America and Sweden submitted their research to the Environmental Research Letters.  The publication rejected it after one assessor called it “less than helpful”. This editor added:

“Actually it is harmful as it opens the door for oversimplified claims of ‘errors’ and worse from the climate sceptics media side.”

The Blinding Stupidity Of Jonathan Porritt

HE’S written a new book he has, Jonathan Porritt, that leading environmental thinker of our age. And in it he’s described how we’re all going to get poorer. But the really crazy thing is that he’s just too dman stupid to understand why his suggestion makes us poorer.

Here’s the Mail giving an outline of it all:

In the vision of the UK in 2050 humans are doing less work – and not just because of robots.

In the fictional future, the EU’s ‘Maximum Working Time Directive’ is introduced and in 2045 people work for just under 25 hours a week in their regular job, compared to an average of 36.4 hours in 2010.

Alex writes that the change came about as unemployment continued to rise in the 1920s and there were protests to distribute jobs more fairly, resulting in GDP being scrapped in 2029 as a way of measuring a country’s wealth.

The ‘index of sustainable economic well being’ and a new model of working came in, which saw people swap labour for services via a local ‘time bank’ and earn extras outside their regular work.

The Freezing Polar Vortex Is God’s Punishment For Not Believing In Global Warming Say Weather Experts

polar vortex The Freezing Polar Vortex Is Gods Punishment For Not Believing In Global Warming Say Weather Experts

EVER hear of a Polar Vortex?

A “polar vortex” will affect more than half of the continental US, starting Sunday and into Monday and Tuesday, with wind chill warnings stretching from Montana to Alabama. The vortex is an anticlockwise-rotating pool of cold, dense air, and is behind the startling forecast: -25F (-31C) in Fargo, North Dakota, -31F (-35C) in International Falls, Minnesota, and -15F (-26C) in Indianapolis and Chicago.

Antarctica’s Climate Change Leave Huge Carbon Footprint On The Ice They Polluted

Akademik Shokalskiy Antarctica’s Climate Change Leave Huge Carbon Footprint On The Ice They Polluted

CHRIS Turney and his band of climate experts once holidaying aboard the MV Akademik Shokalskiyv not only learned that Antarctica is cold and man-made fibres excellent and helicopters faster than global warming , they know what certainty is.

Turney wife Annette and children Kara and Robert tells us:

“It’s 100 percent we’re off!” Chris Turney, a professor and a leader of the scientific expedition, said on Twitter with a link to a video of the Snow Eagle landing.

100%. No room for scepticism, there. Fact.

Ross Clark reports

The Xue Long, the Chinese ship which provided the helicopter to airlift Turney and his colleagues from the Akademik Shokalskiy to the Aurora Australis, has itself now become stuck in ice. Meanwhile 22 Russian crew remain aboard the Shokalskiy. Both ships are stronger than the Endurance, Shackleton’s ship whose timbers were crushed in similar circumstances in 1915, prompting his famous voyage and trek to the whaling station on South Georgia, but both ships remain in danger from further movements of the ice.

Tracy Rogers, Turney’s colleague at the University of New South Wales, is upbeat:

“The Chinese captain is an incredible ambassador for his country,” she said today. She is very lucky that China, which normally incurs the wrath of the climate change lobby due to its fondness for new coal-fired power stations, has chosen the path to wealth – which includes ships and helicopters able to rescue scientists in distress – rather than a path to carbon-free enlightenment.

Anyone worked out the carbon footprint of Turney and his gang of fossil-fuel driven climate change experts?

MV Akademik Shokalskiyv Laugh In: Trapped Climate Scientists Discover Helicopters Are Faster Than Global Warming

ice trapped MV Akademik Shokalskiyv Laugh In: Trapped Climate Scientists Discover Helicopters Are Faster Than Global Warming

 

THE ANTARCTIC is home to the coldest place on Earth. On August 10, 2010, satellites recorded the temperature at minus 93.2C (-135.8F), in East Antarctic Plateau at an altitude of about 3,900m (12,800ft).  The coldest temperature on the ground was recorded in July 1983 at minus 89.2 C (-128.6F) by the Vostok Research Station, Antarctica.

So. God speed Russian scientific ship MV Akademik Shokalskiyv (Academik Stuck-a-lotski), which embarked on a mission to record low ice levels and ended up trapped in the ice with 74 people on board. The ship became wedged into the frozen wastes around 1,500 nautical miles south of Hobart.

Kapow: Wind Turbines Cause 600,000 Bats To Explode With Joy

bats explode Kapow: Wind Turbines Cause 600,000 Bats To Explode With Joy

WIND Turbines are the  eco-responsible power to preserve life:

The Times reports:

More than 600,000 bats were killed in the United States last year by wind turbines, according to a new estimate. The figure, based on a statistical analysis of rates of dead bats found close to 21 turbines, suggests that wind energy could be harmful to certain migratory species.The bat counts were averaged to give a death toll per mega watt generated. Extrapolating this to the total power generated in the US, gave an estimate of 600,000 deaths.

Wind Turbine Plot To Murder Bald Eagles

PA 16029862 Wind Turbine Plot To Murder Bald Eagles

HAVING killed the bird of the century, sliced golden eagles and made bats explode, the US bald eagle is getting the silent treatment:

More than four decades ago the golden eagle was awarded the same protections under US law as the country’s national bird, the bald eagle. Even disturbing their nests is a criminal offence.

The raptor is not considered to be under threat but scientists are worried about a recent increase in the number of golden eagles killed by wind turbines. Eagles in flight tend to focus on the ground below as they look for prey, unaware of the fast-spinning blades in their paths until it’s too late.

THE Australian military firing ordnance triggered the bushfires in New South Wales. Those who saw it a sign of man-made global warming are left clutching at dry straws. One is Academic Janet Stanley, who tells us that if children started the blaze  -as was thought - their actions were driven by climate change:

“With a child it might just be an accident, you know, it’s fun to watch a fire. You light it and in the circumstances that we’ve got at the moment with climate change it gets away when it probably wasn’t meant to get away.”

Al Gore: Rich On Tobacco And Oil Money Trusty Al Gore Links Australian Bush Fires To Global Warming

PA 8846303 copy Al Gore: Rich On Tobacco And Oil Money Trusty Al Gore Links Australian Bush Fires To Global Warming

AUSTRALIAN Prime Minister Tony Abbott says the NSW bushfires were not linked to climate change. Was it the 11-year-old boys?  No. It was the military firing ordnance that started the State Mine fire. But they all said it was global warming. Were those experts wrong? Al Gore says not. He says anyone who says the bushfires aren’t a result of global warming is like a fool who believed smoking wasn’t harmful:

“Well, it’s not my place to get involved in your [Australian] politics, but it reminds me of politicians here in the United States who got a lot of support from the tobacco companies and who argued to the public that there was absolutely no connection between smoking cigarettes and lung cancer...

“For 40 years the tobacco companies were able to persuade pliant politicians within their grip to tell the public what they wanted them to tell them, and for 40 years the tragedy continued.

“And bushfires can occur naturally and do, but the science shows clearly that when the temperature goes up and when the vegetation and soils dry out, then wild fires become more pervasive and more dangerous. That’s not me saying it, that’s what the scientific community says.”

Australia Bush Fires: Global Warming Could Be A Few Idiotic Boys

WHAT has caused the terrible fires in New South Wales, Australia?

The Bushfire Cooperative Research Centre and the Australasian Fire and Emergency Service Authorities Council:

NEW SOUTH WALES

Above average rainfall for much of the preceding three years is likely to continue the trend of heavy grass fuel loads throughout the grassland areas of NSW. These grassland areas include those west of the Great Dividing Range, the Tablelands and the Upper Hunter. Above normal fire potential is expected to continue in these areas due to high grass fuel loads, combined with the predicted ENSO neutral (that is, neither El Niño or La Niña) summer outlook… Over much of the forested areas of NSW, below average rainfall since July has resulted in a drying trend in forest fuels. If this trend continues, above normal fire activity conditions are expected for the forested areas of central and southern NSW coast and ranges.

More rain. More grass. Mote to burn.

Wind turbines kill golden eagles and make bats implode

16510724 Wind turbines kill golden eagles and make bats implode

WIND turbines are good for nature. So goes the theory? What about birds?
Anne Youngman, Scottish officer at the  Bat Conservation Trust, said:

“People think the danger is bats getting hit by the blade but the danger is barotrauma, where they are popped from the inside. There are many risks to bats but when you add wind turbines it could be the final nail in the coffin. It had no signs of external trauma. That, to me, suggests it suffered internally.”

Man-made global warming creates 1 million sq miles more Arctic ice, say experts

arctic ice1 Man made global warming creates 1 million sq miles more Arctic ice, say experts

THE Arctic ice sheet is huge:

A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent. The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

Instead, days before the annual autumn re-freeze is due to begin, an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia’s northern shores.

In 2010, BBC Science Reporter Jonathan Amos told us:

1933: How the yo-yo triggered war in Syria

ON January 23, 1933 it was reported that Yo Yo’s were banned in Syria because they were also “blamed for drought”.

In 2013, William R. Polk. was quoted:

Syria has been convulsed by civil war since climate change came to Syria with a vengeance. Drought devastated the country from 2006 to 2011.  Rainfall in most of the country fell below eight inches (20 cm) a year, the absolute minimum needed to sustain un-irrigated farming. Desperate for water, farmers began to tap aquifers with tens of thousands of new well.  But, as they did, the water table quickly dropped to a level below which their pumps could lift it.

Finding the Holy Grail in cutting emissions

I’D never really had the Mail pegged as a paper that particularly cared about climate change but they’ve gone overboard on this story about how someone’s found the latest incredible technology that will save us all from Gaia murdering us in our beds. To the point that they are pondering whether it is the Holy Grail of the whole climate change thing:

Scientists believe they have achieved the ‘holy grail’ of the green economy by designing a hydrogen production plant that can split water with sunlight.The University of Colorado at Boulder envisages an array of mirrors that would focus sunlight onto a central tower several hundred feet tall.The tower would heat up to around 1,350 °C – enough to liberate hydrogen from steam with the help of a metal oxide compound.
