the Ponzi climate scam … and Green fail

Environmentalists and Greens have done themselves and the country immense damage. The recent Green vote in the West Australian State election lost one third of their previous vote, despite Chris Maher’s superb showing in the Kimberley. Now this is a real environmental issue where science is concerned.

Instead, they search for rainbows and unicorns. East Anglia University are trying to spot hoaxes. Oh the irony?

In the mad rush for easy money, fortune and fame, they misled, duped, lied and bullied their way in political and science forums about Global Warming and carbon as a massive polluter. Once, I thought they just did not read the science properly, but once I saw the Climategate e-mails, then I knew it was just one giant Ponzi scam.

“I’ve just completed Mike’s Nature trick of adding in the real temperatures to each series for the last 20 years (i.e. from 1981 onwards) and from 1961 for Keith’s to hide the decline.” – Phil Jones, UEA

“Can you delete any emails you may have had with Keith regarding the latest (IPCC) report? Keith will do likewise…Can you also email Gene and get him to do the same?…We will be getting Caspar to do likewise.” – Phil Jones, UEA

“We also have a Data Protection Act, which I will hide behind.” – Phil Jones, UEA

“Mike Mann refuses to talk to these people and I can understand why. They are just trying to find if we’ve done anything wrong.” – Phil Jones, UEA

Even the Government Climate Commission snubbed scientific submissions  from a well known physicist and other scientists, who tabled a whole sheaf of peer reviewed paper:   

They denied the peer reviewed papers tabled by a former Climate Change Department scientist. »

They denigrated anybody who tried to point out the actual science and not model data. Instead, the world has arguably started cooling. Keep reading  →

This should be a Green winner, but I guess they have trouble seeing the wood for the trees:

… The truth will hurt. The writing is on the wall. A bridge in the climate debate – How to green the world’s deserts and reverse climate change

Greens say the climate skeptics are funded by oil money. Where is it?

The Greens would do a lot better if they just keep to real environmental issues like the ones that gave them such a good showing in Broome.

Recent research on Humpback whales is starting to reveal a serious deficiency in Woodside’s Environmental Assessment. They couldn’t see the whales for the dollar signs.

One more thing, CO2 is not pollution, Co2 is plant food. Indur M. Goklany

This illustration from a recent article in Science magazine shows that CO2 is plant food.  It is based on both empirical data and model results (not “data”).  I know that looking at empirical data might seem like a novel idea to some people, but for some perverse reason, I find it more compelling.


About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level. If you note a photo or description may be wrong, please e-mail to
