ALARMIST 'CARBON BUBBLE' ARGUMENTS ARE FLAWED AND HIGHLY EXAGGERATED

Posted 23 May 2015

"As the year-end Paris climate change summit draws ever nearer, preparatory meetings continue apace and we see streams of reports and stories arguing how vital it is to come to a binding international agreement to limit carbon dioxide emissions. One of the key arguments is that a large proportion of the proven coal, gas and oil reserves will have to remain in the ground if the world is to stand a fair chance of limiting the rise in average temperatures to 2oC, the level beyond which the effects of climate change are considered negative."  The UK Scientific Alliance explains how these arguments are flawed, and talk of a "carbon bubble" is highly exaggerated.

It summarises the six strategies the alarmist industry is using to advance its agenda and protect its access to tens of billions in taxpayer and consumer dollars: climate research, renewable energy research and implementation, regulatory fiats, a new UN climate treaty, vicious attacks on anyone who contests climate chaos claims, and thought control in every venue of possible debate.

MOST SPECTACULARLY POINTLESS, WASTEFUL PROJECT IN ENGINEERING HISTORY?

Posted 24 February 2015

James Delingpole asks: "If ever there's a competition for the most spectacularly pointless and wasteful project in engineering history, you'd be hard pressed to find a more promising candidate that the one announced this week [in UK] with great fanfare, by Energy Secretary Ed Davey. Dogger Bank Creyke Beck is its name - and though it may seem a bit of an unfamiliar mouthful now, in future years it will trip off the tongue very nicely as the answer to any number of trivia questions."
