The Secret Santa Leak

ipccdatasticks1000A week before Christmas, three data sticks containing 661 files and amounting to nearly one gigabyte of material came into my possession. They were created by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a UN body currently at work on a high-profile report.

Due to be released in stages starting in September, this report will be promoted by government press conferences the world over. Officials will point to its findings and continue to spend billions on climate change measures.

'Global warming is NOT as bad as feared': Met Office under fire as it claims Earth's temperature is rising more slowly than first thought (and could even have stalled)

Global warming is not causing temperatures to rise as quickly as previously feared, the Met Office has claimed.

Today the weather agency released its revised forecast which was quickly seized upon by climate change skeptics who used the data to claim global warming has stopped.

In turn, the scientific community accused them of ignoring the weight of evidence showing that global warming is a reality, and accused the Met Office of 'falling short' of the standards expected of it.

Reid says Hurricane Katrina was 'nothing in comparison' to Sandy

[h/t to amirlach] Comparing disasters is probably never a good idea because regardless of the size it's a travesty for those directly affected. Therefore, it was surprising, as well as factually incorrect, when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid Friday took to the Senate floor and declared that Hurricane Katrina was "nothing in comparison to what happened to the people in New York and New Jersey" from Hurricane Sandy.

Howard Kurtz: 'Al Gore's Al Jazeera Deal Doesn't Seem Right'

gorecurrentCNN media analyst Howard Kurtz isn't happy about Al Gore selling his failing Current TV to Al Jazeera.

In a piece published minutes ago at CNN.com, Kurtz elaborated while he missed potentially the greatest hypocrisy in the deal.

"There is something highly unusual -- OK, just plain weird -- about a former vice president of the United States doing this deal with the emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani," accurately observed Kurtz.

Undeniable Proof of Global Warming in North America!

For you global warming skeptics, here's your proof. Scientists at the Geophysical Institute at the University of Alaska Fairbanks report that during the first decade of the new millennium, 2000 through 2010, Barrow, Alaska gained an average of 3.04 degrees Fahrenheit.

That is what I would expect the LA Times and NY Times to report. But as one of my heroes, Paul Harvey would say, "...now here's the rest of the story..."

The IPCC - a history by IPCC expert reviewer Vincent Gray



During the 1980s a new anti-science pseudo religion called ENVIRONMENTALISM became very popular.

It replaced the conventional deity with THE ENVIRONMENT, which is a kind of mythical earthly Paradise which is worshipped and demanding of constant sacrifices.

It has established Ministries in most countries and a host of activists who impose its dogma on most news outlets. 

Is biofuel really green? Trees grown as fuel worsen air pollution and will kill 1,400 people a year by 2020, report finds

Wood used as a biofuel could make air pollution worse and cause almost 1,400 deaths a year in Europe, scientists have warned.

Trees grown as a biofuel have been seen as a greener, cleaner alternative to fossil fuels but could be having a detrimental effect on air quality.

According to a new report they release a chemical into the air that, when mixed with other pollutants, can damage human health and reduce crop yields.

Wind industry big lies no 3: wind turbines are eco-friendly

Of all the many lies put out by the subsidy-troughing scum-suckers of the wind industry and their greenie fellow travellers, the biggest porkie of the lot is this: that wind turbines are eco-friendly.

In order to believe this tosh, you'd first have to accept the warped view that being eco-friendly can legitimately entail wiping out millions of bats and birds. It is a measure of just how intellectually and morally corrupt Big Green has grown over the last few decades that many self-professed environmentalists actually cleave to this belief. Why else would they expend so much energy trying to defend – or distract from – the indefensible truth: that wind farms around the world are destroying rare species on an industrial scale?

Government of, by and for activists

English: Lisa P Jackson speaking at the press ...

Lisa Jackson’s resignation as administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency has focused attention on the “unfinished agenda” she leaves for this agenda-driven agency’s next director (probably Clinton era assistant EPA administrator and current California Air Resources Board chairwoman Mary Nichols).

One of the most notable leftovers involves an activist think tank that recently informed EPA it intends to file a lawsuit demanding that the agency establish a cap-and-trade system for transportation fuels. The group had petitioned EPA in 2009 to regulate and ration how much motor fuel goes into the U.S. economy from refiners and fuel importers – thereby putting EPA in charge of cars, trucks, boats, trains and planes, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prevent alleged “dangerous manmade global warming.” Jackson’s EPA did not respond, leaving the lawsuit and potential regulations to the next administrator.

Met Office Forecasts No Global Temperature Rise

Nigel Lawson“Shall I send a cheque to the House of Lords?” Letwin asked LawsonThe UK Met Office has revised its global temperature predictions as a result of a new version of its climate model and climate simulations using it. It now believes that global temperatures up to 2017 will most likely be 0.43 deg C above the 1971 -2000 average, with an error of +/- 0.15 deg C. In reality this is a forecast of no increase in global temperatures above current levels. If the latest Met Office prediction is correct, and it accords far more closely with the observed data than previous predictions, then it will prove to be a lesson in humility. It will show that the previous predictions that were given so confidently as advice to the UK government and so unquestioningly accepted by the media, were wrong, and that the so-called sceptics who were derided for questioning them were actually on the right track. --David Whitehouse, The Global Warming Policy Foundation, 7 January 2013

Global warming, the tool of the West

For years, the Elites of the West have cranked up the myth of Man Made Global Warming as a means first and foremost to control the lives and behaviors of their populations. Knowing full well that their produce in China and sell in the West model and its consequent spiral downward in wages and thus standards of living, was unsustainable, the elites moved to use this new "science" to guilt trip and scare monger their populations into smaller and more conservatives forms of living. In other words, they coasted them into the poverty that the greed and treason of those said same elites was already creating in their native lands.
