global warming, nothing but a scam of the left …

The Paris-ites have upped the scaremongering in time for the Paris boondoggle in December. However the scam is increasingly being unraveled. Pierre Gosselin:

[…] According to some university researchers who were former heads of their departments, if a university even mentioned natural cycles, they were either denied future grants, or lost grants. And it is common knowledge that United States government employees within NOAA were cautioned not to talk about natural cycles. It is well known that most university research departments live or die via the grant system. What a great way to manipulate researchers in Europe, Australia and the United States.

As I said, a scam!

Jonova adds the context: Pierre Gosslin has a great post: Former NOAA Meteorologist Says Employees “Were Cautioned Not To Talk About Natural Cycles”.

David Dilley, NOAA Meteorologist, tells how for 15 years work on man-made climate change was pushed while work on natural cycles was actively suppressed. Grants connecting climate change to a man-made crisis were advertised, while the word went around to heads of departments that even mentioning natural cycles would threaten the flow of government funds. Speeches about natural cycles were mysteriously canceled at the last minute with bizarre excuses.

But jobs are on the line, so only retired workers can really speak, and no one can name names. […]

Increasingly, it is apparent that all the global warming hype agenda, is to fund the left’s intentions to control everyone and everything, through the UN’s IPCC, Agenda 21 crowd.

The ‘black shirts’, or is it the ‘brown shirts’, are after total control; get rid of capitalism; bring in a one world government, Agenda 21 type; after your money with their agenda. First, the UNs Christiana Figueres wants to get rid of capitalism. UNFCCC boss Christiana Figueres’ dreams spell a nightmarish future for Earth’s citizens

Friday Funny Bonus: blinkered @greenpeace activists can’t tell the difference between steam and CO2

From the “cooling towers are evil fossil fuel icons” department and the mind of Greenpeace comes this hilariously funny (and stupid) tweet. It demonstrates the usual m.o. of Greenpeace these days, blind uneducated vandalism in the name of a cause. Mind you, this isn’t some rogue splinter faction of Greenpeace putting out this photo, it’s the…

the left’s cancer of lies …

The lies to achieve political advantage have become more and more extreme in recent years. Just this week:

EDITORIAL: How did lies spread so easily about Andrew Hastie?

His reputation was just collateral damage in the ‘Get Abbott’ game.

Liberal candidate.

It’s the Abbott Derangement Syndrome in overdrive.

Deceptive temperature claims, theft of carbon offsets, yes, Russia is extreme left. So are Aussie Greens:

A GREENS senator stands accused of being fast and loose with the truth and living in a bubble after she claimed the Adani coal project would dig up the Great Barrier Reef.
couriermail.com.au

Not forgetting those Labor/Green media operatives: #TalkAboutIt: Climate change sceptics versus the scientists (correcting ABC mistakes, strawmen, and misleading lines)

I will correct that, ABC lies, strawmen and more lies. More fraud:

Another carbon credit fraud – $2b. The faked fixed unfree market feeds crooks and makes no difference to emissions.

More news of how the faked fixed unfree market in carbon credits feeds the people who are inclined to cheat, and may have actually increased emissions by 600 million tonnes as well (not that that matters). […]

Then the left are now and attacking those who are investigating those same thieves,

Who can ever forget the Climate Commissioner’s biggest ever lie, one that has cost us billions of dollars of unused desalination plants? “Even the rain that falls isn’t actually going to fill our dams and our river systems

The ‘Cult’ of Climate Change (née Global Warming)

Guest essay by Ari.H. Global warming has become a religionThis is the opinion of Nobel Prize Winning Physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever , Prof. Richard Lindzen, and many others. Climate change alarmism has a surprising number of attributes of a medieval or even ancient religion. Nevertheless, real religions have some pre-requisites, like a tradition spanning at least…

Worse than a scam: Study: ‘The vast majority of carbon credits generated by Russia and Ukraine did not represent cuts in emissions’

In some projects, chemicals known to warm the climate were created and then destroyed to claim cash.

Typical criminal behaviour?

East Kimberley revisited …

Each year I manage a trip or two to the other side of the Kimberley. Distances here are enormous, and a trip to the WA/NT border are is over 2 thousand km return.  Many of our revegetation activities have been in East Kimberley towns and Communities, which first entails collecting the seed.

In the course of these activities, some worthy sites were visited, such as the Wolfe Creek Crater.

A feature of these trips has been to visit the wild horses, as most Kimberley Cattle Stations changed to the use of vehicles instead of horses. More recently, some stations are returning to the calmer ways of horseback mustering.

the port of Broome …

The Port of Broome is subject to massive tidal ranges, with the biggest movement of ten metres. Handling logistics for the Browse Basin offshore Gas field is it’s main use, followed by the live export cattle trade.

rabbit food, or essential diet …

The problem with salad, is that the resources needed to grow, ship and finally serve, are not worth the nutrition, or lack of, therein. Why salad is so overrated.

However it may be helpful as a ‘weight loss pill’.

There’s one food, though, that has almost nothing going for it. It occupies precious crop acreage, requires fossil fuels to be shipped, refrigerated, around the world, and adds nothing but crunch to the plate.

It’s salad, and here are three main reasons why we need to rethink it.

Check it out. Pass the lobster please, and hide the salad!b4

(via Hot Air)

Update, More from Instapundit:

NEWS YOU CAN USE: Why salad is so overrated. “It occupies precious crop acreage, requires fossil fuels to be shipped, refrigerated, around the world, and adds nothing but crunch to the plate. . . . Four of the five lowest-ranking vegetables (by serving size) are salad ingredients: cucumbers, radishes, iceberg lettuce and celery. (The fifth is eggplant.) Those foods’ nutritional profile can be partly explained by one simple fact: They’re almost all water. Although water figures prominently in just about every vegetable (the sweet potato, one of the least watery, is 77 percent), those four salad vegetables top the list at 95 to 97 percent water. A head of iceberg lettuce has the same water content as a bottle of Evian (1-liter size: 96 percent water, 4 percent bottle) and is only marginally more nutritious.”

I like a nice salad. But yeah.

up the beach …

Barred Creek, about 30km north of Broome is a popular fishing and camping destination for locals. It has everything, beaches, creeks, sandstone rocks, fossil trees, mangroves, fish and flowers. Oh, and a very good exercise area for dogs.

a “moral imperative” to burn coal …

[…] Carbon-based energy, which is “the most affordable and reliable source of energy in demand today, liberates people from poverty,” Christy explained to CNSNews.com. “Without energy, life is brutal and short.”

Without carbon, there is no life. Without CO2 to feed plants and trees, we have no life support or food. Optimum CO2 levels are at least double what the Green Paris-ites want, so burn that coal and gas.

If you don’t burn more fossil fuels, life will stagnate and/or die out. Same result if it gets a bit colder too.
