Renewable energy subsidies in Europe are having a devastating effect on conventional power prices, causing power companies to mothball plant, cut jobs and sell assets. The unforseen consequence for the Renewable Subsidy Farmers, is that these companies are also scaling back on renewables.

Power supplier SSE today said it was freezing household energy prices until “at least” January 2016 as it unveiled plans to trim £100 million off its annual cost base within the next two years. (more…)

Comments on New SPPI Paper

Subject: New SPPI Paper: Modern Growth Trends of Forests

Hi Bob

This paper is a very good demonstration of how critical CO2 is to life.

The myth that permeates the current thinking and propaganda, is that the rainforests are permanent natural features of the earth. Nothing could be further from the truth:

Professor Philip Stott, Emeritus Professor of BioGeography at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, wrote this in 2003:

“At the end of the last ice age, only some 12-18000 years ago, the tropics were covered by seasonal savannah grasslands, cooler and much drier than now. There were no rain forests in the Malay Peninsula and much of Amazonia, and, despite the increasing human development of forested space, there are still more rain forests persisting than existed then.

Global Warming: a Marxist perspective

With the recent Rio+20 green fest now over, but with the underlying agenda continuing in myriad different ways because of the insidious impact of Agenda 21, this article in a Marxist journal describes exactly what is behind the the activities of the UN.

The impacts of global warming fall disproportionately on the poor. The effects will manifest themselves in lots of ways: more expensive foods, a shortage of water, less fertile soil, and more extreme weather. Those who will suffer (and already are suffering) as a result are ordinary working and middle class people, peasant farmers – in short, everyone except the super-rich, who can always up sticks and move to a more pleasant climate. Although at the moment the effects are largely confined to the so-called third world, they are already starting to impact on the richer countries.

This means that global warming is not just a scientific issue, but a class issue. (more…)

Things More Worrisome than AGW: UN seeks to control 70% of Earth’s surface – The Oceans

There are many politicians, both Democrat and Republican, who constantly press for the US to ratify “The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS),” commonly referred to as LOST, an international agreement that was concluded in 1982, and came into force in 1994. It is an insidious attempt to remove national sovereignty and for national waters to be subsumed under the control of the UN.

Law of the Sea Convention Update – whitehouse.gov

The National Ocean Council website carries this message, dated March 25th, 2012.

“President Obama has stated that the United States will promote the stewardship and sustainable use of the oceans in several ways including by cooperating and exercising leadership at the international level and pursuing U.S. accession to the Law of the Sea Convention.   On March 21st, the State Department published a Fact Sheet identifying a number of compelling reasons why the United States should join the Law of the Sea Convention now.” (more…)

Things More Worrisome than AGW: US Military Arms Sales Up

US foreign military sales already a record 50 billion dollars, up 70% from 2011 — MercoPress

“Speaking in Washington this week about how the US State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs is engaging with allies and partners to expand the defence trade, the US official cited some key data in the 655 Report released last week, which is an annual report of defence articles and services that were authorized for export.

The report focuses on direct commercial sales, and it showed that there was a more than 10 billion dollars increase in Fiscal Year 2011 in items authorized for transfer. In 2011, the Directorate for Defence Trade Controls, which is part of the Political-Military Bureau, processed more than 83,000 licenses, the most ever.

He said the State Department was going to continue to press and advocate for US arms sales, adding that additional sales are expected in FY13 from countries like India. ”We’ve made tremendous progress in the relationship (with India) over the last decade. We went from nearly zero sales to about 8 billion dollars in arms sales to India,” 

One has to wonder what Pachauri has to say about that?

There are some pretty weird people out there and we have all the politicians over in Rio, like Hillary Clinton, posturing about sustainability and here they are selling arms to poor, developing nations, who at some point may use them against the West.

National Resources are no longer National

In June this year, the German government issued the Press Release shown below, relating to the UN Convention on Biodiversity, which is another product of Maurice Strong’s UNEP/Agenda 21 from the 1992 Earth Summit. The Press Release relates to a UN Conference on Bio-Diversity, in Nagoya, Japan in October 2010, which was widely reported in the media, but with minimal detail and little public interest, because all the talk was of the forthcoming UNFCCC COP16 event in Cancun, Mexico.

This is how major advances are made by the UN, in their drive for global governance. Conferences and meetings on all sorts of issues are held almost monthly and each country sends its representatives to agree on measures which the average member of the public will not be aware of until it impacts them directly. Whilst ostensibly to protect the rights of “indigenous peoples”, if new genetic resources, such as medicinal plants were to be discovered in, say, the Amazon, the implications are widespread and effectively it says genetic resources are no longer the property of an individual nation, they are “World Property”, to be administered by the UN. If anyone accessed them without UN sanction, they would be guilty of “Bio-Piracy”. How much closer to global governance can you get than this? (more…)

The UN IPCC – Influence Without Accountability

by Dennis Ambler

Donna La Framboise has an excellent piece on Dr Rajendra Pachauri and highlights the emergence of a new UN body similar to the IPCC, but in respect of Bio-Diversity. This is of course another objective that was decided at the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992, and is now being brought of the cupboard.

Mr. Chairman, Your Carriage Awaits January 28, 2011, Donna La Framboise

“According to some people the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a marvelous organization – so marvelous it should be regarded as a prototype. A month ago, therefore, the UN General Assembly formally created the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services.

As the press release explains, this body will be an “IPCC for Nature” which will:

in many ways mirror the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which has assisted in catalyzing worldwide understanding and governmental action on global warming.

There’s just one problem. The IPCC model is utterly dysfunctional. It is a screeching, flashing, billboard-sized example of influence without accountability. For proof of this statement, one need look no further than the IPCC’s chairman, Rajendra Pachauri.” (more…)

WikiLeaks and the Great Myths of Global Warming

Monday, December 6th, 2010

by Dennis Ambler

Those who have studied the UN process on “Global Warming” aka Climate Change, know full well that it is little to do with climate but everything to do with advancing the interests of global corporations and international financiers. The WikiLeaks revelations detailed in the Guardian demonstrate the accuracy of that assessment.

The Great Myth revealed in the leaks, is the long held and deliberately promoted belief that the US is opposed to any measures designed to “control climate.” Nothing could be further from the truth because behind the scenes it has been promoting and engineering the process for many years, driven by NGO’s and their funders, the “eco” billionaires.

The other Great Myth is that the be-all and end-all for climate negotiation is the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), when in fact there are numerous private and pseudo-governmental operations taking place all the time, particularly in terms of gaining a foothold in the vast energy markets of China and India.

Extreme Weather, Extreme Claims

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Source:  SPPI

A recent paper at SPPI looks at the history of extreme weather events.

The on-going claims of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming have been ramped up again lately because of the opportunities presented by the heat wave in Russia and the floods in Pakistan, which are also being claimed as attributable to anthropogenic CO2. If the amount spent on global warming were to be diverted to mitigating and preventing the worst effects of natural disasters, then the desperate plight of the people of Pakistan would be relieved more quickly.

The paper can be downloaded here: http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/originals/extreme_weather_extreme_claims.html

Author, Dennis Ambler, concludes:

Extreme Weather – The Blame Game

The Aztecs had sophisticated irrigation systems and “astrolonomical” observatories, (apparently a mix of astrology and astronomy), to attempt to predict the weather and reservoirs. But the unseasonal frosts and cold, followed by severe, prolonged drought, may have taken them to the brink of collapse. Once the climate became more benign again, they praised their gods with human sacrifice.

“When rainfall and agriculture had resumed, the Aztecs responded by massively increasing the number of human sacrifices to their rain god Tlaloc. It is thought that hundreds of thousands of people were sacrificed.” (more…)

To David Wells’ Comment:

David, you must realize that AGW has nothing to do with the science or saving the planet. It is a false crisis to create the case (by the IPCC) that we need worldwide emissions control. Then they can set up a carbon trading economy, a one world government, and carry out massive undeserved wealth redistribution, all under a totalitarian/socialist regime.

Crippling and de-developing the Western World and preventing the development of the undeveloped countries would serve them well, as a means of retaining power. The latter would become huge welfare states, crippled forever by government handouts from ever taking their own initiative.

By depressing the world, how could they not stay in power, particularly when they effectively disarm everybody and they have the only legitimate military (police/Gestapo/thugs) to force large scale compliance? Notice the International Small Arms Treaty (just agreed to by Clinton!) – why would the UN have any business knowing where all the guns are in the US, or any country, unless it is to eventually do something about them? They claim it is to better track illegal guns, but then why know where all the legal guns are? There is already perfectly good means of establishing the origin of a gun – starting at the manufacturer.

The psych part described here simply hallmarks the fact that the science and climate are not the issue, it’s getting the people to do what they want. They want compliance and acquiescence to their agenda – and they want it now! We are standing in their way with our delusional smugness! (more…)

Global Temperature Is Warmest on Record, NASA’s Hansen Says: Reality Check

by Joe DeAleo

June 2 (Bloomberg)—The global temperature this year reached its warmest on record based on a 12-month-rolling average, James Hansen, the top climate change scientist at the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said today.

The rolling average surface temperature in April was about 0.65 of a degree Celsius (1.17 degree Fahrenheit) warmer than the 1951 to 1980 mean, according to a graph in a 37-page draft paper on the website of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. That makes it a fraction warmer than the previous peak in 2005. Absolute temperatures weren’t published in the paper. (more…)
