CLIMATE SCIENTISTS: OPPORTUNISTS WHO PROFIT FROM POORLY SUPPORTED DOOMSDAY PREDICTIONS?

Posted 31 March 2015

"The scientific theories promoted by the global warming advocates are soft targets. Their science is lousy. But critical scientific arguments are highly technical and only of use in getting authoritative scientists to join the skeptical side. To influence the vast majority of citizens, including non-specialist scientists, emotional arguments are necessary. My suggestion would be to paint a picture of a future when global warming promoters get what they want and everyone else loses money, mobility, jobs, etc. Combine this with authoritative scientists saying that global warming dogma is scientifically flawed and you have a winning formula." Policy advisor Norman Rogers posts at American Thinker.

FOSSIL FUELS GREATEST BLESSING TO HAVE EVER BEEN VISITED UPON OUR SPECIES

Posted 28 March 2015

"Let me begin with a simple, and surely and incontrovertible, proposition. It is that the abundant availability of fossil fuels, combined with the wit that has allowed human beings to exploit them, is the greatest blessing ever to have been visited on the species. After all, without them no BBC at all, and no University of Oxford - well, at least not as to be recognisable today,"  Thus begins a letter to Lord Hall, Director General of the BBC, written by Rupert Wyndham, a former Times journalist, now 70, who describes his interests as "travel across the world and enhancing my carbon footprint for its benefit. Challenging politicians, clergymen, dishonest broadcasters and other assorted riff-raff". He was protesting about a BBC broadcast describing shareholding in fossil fuel extraction as "an ethical issue".

HAS JOHN KERRY BECOME AMERICA'S 'SECRETARY OF MIS-STATE'?

Posted 18 March 2015

"In statements made to support his political agenda [US Secretary of State John] Kerry manages to perpetuate a series of errors, myths and slurs. One is the claim Al Gore made before the US Senate in 2007 that the 'science is settled' and the 'debate is over', Kerry said. Kerry displays further ignorance by marginalizing those who question the science....These are frightening words and a disturbingly narrow position from one of the most powerful statesmen and diplomats in the world."  Canadian climate scientist, Professor Timothy Ball posts at Watts Up With That.

RISE & FALL OF KYOTO PROTOCOL - CLIMATE CHANGE AS A POLITICAL PROCESS

Posted 2 March 2015

"On the grounds of all the elicited preceding information, we may state that the Kyoto Protocol is a failed climate strategy since emissions have neither been reduced absolutely nor relatively. The approach has not been successful with the emissions that are increasing the most - and with respect to the atmosphere, this is exactly pivotal. The atmosphere has no moral sensors, which would distinguish between the so-called luxury emissions and survival emissions".  A scholarly 400-page thesis by Eija-Ritta Korhola, Faculty of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of Helsinki. Ms Korhola, a former Member of the Euopean Parliament, was at the core of EU climate policy-making. This thesis is a long, but essential tool to understand why current climate policies are faiing humanity.
