How does This Work?

The answer is that, while carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, it is only a trivial one. Water vapour is the Earth’s GHG by far by both volume and effect. The “carbon” alarm relies on an unproven assertion/hypothesis that an increase in the tiny trace gas will somehow be amplified by a permanent increase in global humidity. We never see perturbations in global temperature causing such instability – never.

NSW Election

untitledWhile making the obligatory noises about it to attract second preferences from the Greenies, “Climate Change” ran dead as an issue in the election campaign of yet another large Aussie State, New South Wales.

The main issue was whether to sell off some electricity infrastructure so money can be spent burning fossil fuels to try and un-clog the giant city of Sydney which has become a rabbit warren of tunnels.

Gallup Poll

Or, why Earth Hour was just an after-thought last night – NOBODY CARES!!

Only 25% have a great deal of concern –
“On the other hand, Americans express the least amount of concern about climate change — 25% have a great deal of worry — confirming that despite widespread news coverage of the implications of changing temperatures, Americans are not highly worried about the issue.” –

Global Governance – The Threat

commissarThe most alarming thing about the putsch for global governance at the U.N. to save-da-planet is that it is designed make the “Masses” suffer so they will revolt against their capitalist masters.

Why alarming?
The putsch is designed to make the fundamental basis of our prosperous modern society, our energy system, dysfunctional.

You can put up windmills and solar panels and install a huge battery bank and try to grow your own biodiesel on your remote hobby farm, but you cannot apply that globally.
It cannot be scaled up to replace a system that took three generations and trillions of dollars to build. (see sidebar)
You cannot store gigawatts of power in lead acid batteries.
There is no such thing as “Alternative” power because there is no way of storing it. Coal, oil and gas are vast reservoirs of stored energy.
“Renewable” energy is so dilute and dispersed that you will cause significant environmental problems just trying to collect enough of it.
Trying to store the dilute and dispersed energy from “Renewable” power “farms” adds an order of magnitude more cost.
Like the Carnot Cycle, that order of magnitude cost is intrinsic. You use energy storing energy and you lose energy retrieving it.
Also, the means of storing “Renewables” it is still all theoretical. It has not been demonstrated on a large-scale. Limited experimental success has not been touted because the cost of the power produced can only be described as astronomical with no obvious way of improving the intrinsic, inherent, storage losses.

Then there is biofuel. Trying to run the global fleet of ships, trucks, trains and aeroplanes on vast monoculture plantations would be an environmental disaster, vulnerable to pest and plague.

So what is the harm in trying to be Green?
Simple.

ONE   They do not know what they are doing. They are FORCING implementation of unproven energy systems in the vain hope that they can be made to work.

TWO   We have a highly efficient, well-developed, non-polluting and cheap system of power generation and supply. The efficacy of that well-oiled system is disrupted when it is forced to sit and idle, waiting for the wind to die down and the clouds to clear.

THREE   We finish up with very expensive “renewable power”  which has to be backed up 100% by regular power which has been made very expensive by forcing it to remain idling on standby for extended periods.

FOUR   Proponents are inherently anti-human, they treat humanity as a disease despoiling the planet. Their misanthropy is manifested by their rejection of the one demonstrated successful solution, Nuclear Power.

Here is what I mean by “FORCING” unproven energy systems –

” …This text agreed to for negotiation by the federal government includes a remarkable proposal. Buried deep inside, it proposes an “International Climate Justice Tribunal in order to oversee, control and sanction the fulfilment [sic] of and compliance with the obligations of Annex I and Annex II Parties under this agreement and the [1992 UNFCCC climate treaty]…”

How Climate Change Ends

It just fades away.

It is the manifestation of the old joke – “everybody complains about the weather but nobody does anything about it”.

The public are bored with it because it has degenerated into a political impasse with no obvious problem and no obvious solution.

“Projections” you can bank onThis report from BP shows that the wealthy bourgeois trendy intellectual greenies are having absolutely zero effect on global fossil fuel output.

Whole CSIRO Board To Go

There is a Green culture infesting the scientific community.
Scientists trying to earn a stable living would be well advised to stay out of the politics, be objective and produce results. They should resist the temptation of creating dramatic scenarios in the media to attract public funding.

Sea World LIES

Having no shame about the hundreds of tonnes of greenhouse gases that they produce themselves by refrigerating a large outdoor pool to keep bears in a subtropical climate, or ignoring the simple fact that Polar Bear numbers have rebounded and are very healthy, or that despite the fact that astronomical global greenhouse gas output has produced no significant temperature rise yet, the Aussie Sea World have celebrated Polar Bear Day by claiming on Channel Nine that they are endangered . http://youtu.be/KR90M8AL5_s

The claim that there is a “dramatic decline in numbers in the wild” is a BLATANT LIE

Threatened? 
They are also threatened by an asteroid strike, which at present seems just as likely as human fossil fuel burning causing the planet to overheat, and the bears not being able to adapt to it.
Melting sea ice is obviously not going to threaten the whole species even if it does start melting and a few of them accidently drown.

Cartoonist Rick McKee – Augusta Chronicle

We in aussie get the usual superstitious bullcrap every time we get a summer heat wave so I have to resist the hypocrisy of pointing out that the record cold winters we are seeing in the northern hemisphere lately are consistent with the lack of sunspot activity seen in the Maunder Minimum/Little Ice Age.

I just thought this was amusing, that’s all.

While other deniers are dancing, I am sorry to see him go.
I hope the UNIPCC don’t replace him with someone with talent and charisma.
