  • Climate Models Tested

    2021-06-07

    The GWPF report on a new study which claims to verify the accuracy of climate models used to predict the climate in the North Atlantic.

    "The basic questions for climate models is whether they realistically simulate observations, and to what extent can future climate change be predicted? It’s an important concept as political and environmental action is predicated upon it"

    Scientific modelling has had a bit of a bad press in the Coronavirus pandemic scenario, so how do these climate models fare when put to the test?

    The GWPF has the story.

  • Another Government-Mandated Environmental Policy Disaster?

    2021-06-03

    "German government warns of dangerous water pollution and public health threat from heat pumps""

    The latest press release from the Global Warming Policy Forum draws attention to a study by the German Federal Environment Agency that has identified the threat from refrigerants used in such devices as air conditioners and heat pumps leaking into the atmosphere, leading to contamination of groundwater supplies.

    European governments have already established their propensity to make a bad situation worse (think diesel fuel for cars) through not doing their due diligence and running a full health and safety assessment on the proposed course of action

  • Steve Baker MP warns of Backlash and Public Outrage

    2021-05-21

    Steve Baker MP has just earned himself some free-thinker points by (a) joining Benny Peiser at the Global Warming Policy Foundation and (b) warning the government that we are not going to take kindly to replacing all our nice cheap and efficient gas appliances with expensive and not very effective heat pumps.

    Perhaps the government will think that we will all be so relieved to have survived the Great Covid Catastrophe and so grateful for their splendid management of the lockdowns that kept us all safe (not to mention the fantastic purchase at government expense of innumerable unapproved

  • More Workable Proposals for the Green Revolution

    2021-05-18

    The latest newsletter from the Global Warming Policy Forum lists a number of notable stories, from Germany's refusal to bring forward the ending of their dependence on coal, to the news that RR will be bring out enhanced Small Modular Reactors capable to provide power to local energy grids.

    Given the costs, timescales, international politicking, and consequent uncertainties associated with traditional large nuclear power plants, that sounds like a "no-brainer" to me.

    Not included in their newsletter are their proposals for a

  • Net Zero (Carbon or Population?)

    2021-05-18

    LarouchePAC publish an interesting viewpoint, pointing out that the current drive for "zero carbon" will probably have serious consequences for the population (should the Covid menace spare any of us).

    As always it's the poor and needy who will bear the brunt, but the zero carbon push seems to fail before it's even got going due to the impossibility of mining enough of the prerequisite key minerals (required by current technology).

    the world doesn’t have the capacity to meet such demand

  • IRT Releases Critical GMO Regulatory Report

    2021-05-13

    The IRT (Institute for Responsible Technology) releases a report on the GMO regulatory system in America.

    It's not true that here is no regulatory oversight, but their article for the layman that explains the position summarises the difficulty in one telling paragraph:

    "Unfortunately, no meaningful laws or regulations reign in these biological time bombs. Ironically, the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulations that do apply to most genetically engineered microbes treat them explicitly as chemicals. They employ evaluation standards developed for toxic substances. They have yet to create systems to analyze the very different set of risks

  • Ban the Beef? Oregon Shows the Way

    2021-05-06

    Ice Age Farmer reports on the latest in the globalists' war on long-established farming custom and practice - how long before we begin to hear the same rumblings in the UK and Europe?

    "a new bill proposed in Oregon would create a 'sanctuary state' for animals, radically transforming how animals are treated across the state"

    "The language is all about eliminating 'animal abuse', which sounds good, right, but the subtlety is that all animal agriculture has been redefined as abusive... all references to good husbandry practices are eliminated..."

  • A Pandemic of Vulnerability?

    2021-05-04

    Zach Bush meets Del Bigtree in Hawaii (wouldn't we all?) to discuss his views on the latest virus situation - and that's just the start.

    Their first encounterwe highlighted in December 2020 - in fact it's the only video that we have highlighted twice.

    Zach does have an excellent way of expressing himself and explaining his understanding of how our bodies function and how we relate to the planetary ecosystems of life - I have never found anyone else express this compelling vision (and no, that's not over-hyping it), let alone do it so cogently:

  • The Geopolitics of Climate Change - 2050

    2021-04-21

    Yesterday i had my introduction to the JR Nyquist blog, and today I encounter the Climate Discussion Nexus article on the alleged Chinese ambition to dominate the world...

    Now I have to say that I have no firm information - we are certainly in the realms of speculation, but as they say, if the cap fits, wear it.

    World history has been littered by a long succession of folk who felt that they were entitled to rule the world (or as much of it as they could get their hands on before their regime fell apart) and would go to any lengths to do so. The problem that we face today is that the world has been shrunk to such an extent by sea travel, air travel, probably soon sub-orbital space travel, and recently by what we might

  • Count your Carbon alongside your Calories?

    2021-04-16

    "There’s rising demand for another type of food label as people become increasingly concerned about climate change, and conscious of how they’re contributing to it"

    Demand from whom I wonder? The man on the Clapham omnibus?

    Oh - Extinction Rebellion perhaps?

    Now I may myself occasionally look at the label on an unfamiliar food product before I buy it, but I'm not looking at the calorie count since I long ago decided that the link between calories and weight gain is a relatively minor part of the whole, a part that only becomes significant when the whole is seriously out of balance.

    And I must confess that whilst as a matter of good management I would prefer my food to be locally sourced and subject to

  • Net Zero In Peril?

    2021-04-12

    Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Forum releases another round-up of articles evaluating the prospects for the much-vaunted "Net Zero" initiatives so beloved of the climate lobby. Food for thought.

    As is usual in discussions about "Net Zero", the two indispensable weapons are always carbon taxes and subsidies, both paid for but never voted for by the tax-payer or by the population who purchase power in the form of electricity, gas, or oil.

    But surely we vote our governments into power?

    But when was the last time any major political party gave the voters a choice by standing on a policy platform

  • Debunking the Fake Science

    2021-04-08

    Dr Shiva describes the history of the Climate Change "science" - what is the difference between "science" and pseudo-science?

    (A question that might also usefully be directed towards the Covid-19 pandemic narratives)

    Science requires observations (evidence) in order to prepare a hypothesis, and from that hypothesis we may prepare a number of predictions.

    The resulting predictions are then compared with new observations of reality, and if all of the predictions are observed to be true then that hypothesis becomes a theory... until new observations come along that do not fit the predictions.

    To confirm the theory and guard against errors, the same process must be repeated by independent scientists, working

  • German Audit: Green Energy is a "Danger for All of Germany"

    2021-04-03

    "Control over energy has been a goal of Technocracy since it was founded in 1932. Alternative energy offers control over scarce resources, while destroying abundant energy resources. Whoever control the energy controls all economic activity. Germans are discovering that the whole program is regressive and dangerous"

    Quite so.

    How does Germany differ from the UK in this respect?

    2021-04-01

    The Protect Nature Now Coalition, an initiative by the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT),  is all about "Safeguarding Biological Evolution from GMOs 2.0".

    We have heard much about the genetic modification of the food that we eat and the crops that we grow, but here the emphasis is on the microbiological flora and fauna upon which the health of our natural environment, including the soil, indeed you might say Mother Earth herself, depends.

    If nature's microbiome is corrupted, the result may be catastrophic beyond imagining.

  • How to Think About Climate Change

    2021-03-17

    "The Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor Emeritus of Physics at Princeton University, Dr. Happer"

    With a title like that we should expect something special, and I think that that is exactly what Dr Happer delivers in this excellent presentation.

    And yes, this really is all about being green. But does CO2lead to more green or less green?

    He explains how the heating and cooling cycles (day and night) that envelop the earth work, how some of that heat is convected northwards and southwards towards the poles, what happens when CO2 and water (vapour and clouds) get in the way, and how changes to the level of CO2 actually in the atmosphere affect both plants and warmth.
