The following is a mea culpa from prominent climate activist and environmental leader Michael Shellenberger, a Time Magazine ‘Hero of the Environment’ (pictured).
On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening.
It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.
I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.
But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as an Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public … Continue reading >>>

Many cities and countries have already taken action against 5G deployment by banning it, filing lawsuits, issuing moratoriums, passing ordinances and resolutions (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. 7. 8). Since 2018, there have been reports of people and animals becoming sick after it was turned on (see 1. 2, 3, 4).
Of course it’s not just 5G that is harmful. All sources of Electromagnetic Radiation (aka “Electrosmog”) is biologically and environmentally harmful. This includes Bluetooth, cell phone and WiFi radiation. Health experts have been warning about exposure risks for many years and continue to do so (see 1, 2). This includes the World Health Organization and American Academy of Pediatrics. Even Dr. Oz has warned about exposure!
Kudos to these Canadians for appealing to their government to stop 5G deployment and invest in safer wired connections instead.
Twenty-Four Canadian Groups Say: Suspend 5G Until Proven Safe
Appeal to the Government of Canada “Look Before We Leap”
For Immediate Release
May 14, 2020
Ottawa: Scientists and citizens groups from across Canada are demanding the right to say “No” to 5G in their neighbourhoods. Twenty four Canadian groups are banding together and appealing to the Trudeau government for a national moratorium on 5G roll out, until questions about its human health effects are resolved.
“This has nothing to do with Covid-19. All groups launching this Appeal condemn acts of violence such as burning antenna towers” said one of the organizers. “The Parliamentary Health Committee has been investigating the negative health impacts of cell phones, cell towers and Wi-Fi for over a decade … Continue reading >>>
It’s not very original to say climate alarmism has turned into a quasi – religioous cult, I was saying it ten years ago and I wasn’t the first. But the activities of climate activists like the middle class crusties of Ekstinktion Rebellion and the followers of the Swedish muppet St. Greta of Thunberg, (She’s not the Messiah, she’s a very naughty girl,) have taken on a very nasty fanaticism that is typical of the tactics favoured by the far left and far right when trying to impose their ideology on the world.
It’s often said that those who do not learn from history are condenmed to repeat its mistakes and it seems the ideologically driven authoritarians of the globalist movement have failed to take heed of the Prostestant reformation that was triggered by the excesses of the Holy Inquisition, the liberal backlash against Europe’s despotic monarchies in the enlightenment era, thenineteenth century rise of social democracy (a very different creature to Socialism,) in the face of unregulated capitalism in the second stage of the Industrial Revolution, and now the resurgence of nationalism as a reaction to rampant neo – liberalism.
One of the notable things about the globalists reaction to the success of nationalist politicians, such as U S President Donald Trump, Italy’s Matteo Salvini, Nigel Farage, Marine Le Pen in France and parties such as AfD (Alternatif fur Deutschland,) or the Sweden Democrats is their attempts to smear and discredit any challenges to their idological polics, especially those rooted in the realities of life for middle and working class voters.
It was inevitable then that as the claims of the climate catastrophe scaremongers became more lurid and sensational, the more grounded majority would push back. And as the lies of those who write St. Greta’s scripts, (oh come on, you don’t believe a seventeen year old with leatning difficulties cause by foetal alcohol syndrome writes that Messianic bullshit herself do you?) become more outrageous and more obvious, it was inevitable that an anti – Greta would arise ….
I met this amazing young lady in Madrid last week. At 19 years old; she impressed me with her quiet but powerful understanding of how she had been misled on climate alarmism.
Recorded in Madrid, Spain, the site of the UN’s COP25. Naomi Seibt, a popular YouTube streamer, speaks on her journey to climate realism, the state of science, and more during the United Nations’ COP25.
She closed out the Heartland livestream presentations in Madrid in the opening week of the conference. Continue reading
Meet the 19-year-old ‘anti-Greta’, who warns Thunberg’s ‘alarmism’ must be stopped
With her slight frame, long blonde hair and converse trainers, German teenager Naomi Seibt might not seem the most obvious candidate to front the growing climate scepticism movement. But holding court at America’s largest gathering for grassroots Republicans, expounding her controversial views on global warming, she exudes an air of self-belief that belies her 19 years.
As Greta Thunberg brought her climate awareness campaign to the UK last week – speaking at a rally of some 25,000 striking school children in Bristol – on the other side of the Atlantic, Seibt, dubbed the “anti-Greta”, was propelled onto the world’s stage in Washington, making an appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and firmly positioning herself as the new darling of right-wing climate sceptics.
Thunberg, now the general of a worldwide teen army, was named Time magazine’s ‘person of the year’ after berating world leaders for their inaction at a United Nations summit last year. A video of the Swedish 17-year-old glaring at Donald Trump went viral. Seibt, meanwhile, uses her YouTube channel to challenge what she calls the climate change “alarmism” espoused by Thunberg … Continue reading
Naomi Seibt and Her Journey to Climate Realism
Another assertion that crops up time and again is that climate change sceptics somehow believe CO2 pollution does not affect them but only affects poor people. Firstly, CO2 is not a polutant. Secondly, while pollution is a serious problem in some places it doesn’t affect sceptics as badly as it affects poorer people who vote Labour in Britain, Democrat in the USA, and socialist or leftist parties around the world – and if the left understood more clearly why this is so, they could be many times more effective at implementing the right environmental policies to deal with the problems.
Let me show you what I mean with the help of an American AGW sceptic site . Here’s a photo of Los Angeles on a clear day from 1990.
Smog like that used to be a huge problem, and that smog is not carbon dioxide (which is a colourless gas,) but probably a high concentration of nitrous oxide along with sulphates and other noxious gases. But today, Los Angeles looks like this:
The difference between those two photos is obvious. A lot of environmental policy changes were needed to get from point A to point B, and they worked. Mission accomplished.
Now, lets compare that to a photo of Chattanooga, Tennessee, from 1990:
And here’s Chattanooga today:
Other than 28 years worth of advances in camera technology, Chattanooga hasn’t changed much. In fact Chattanooga was considered one of the cleanest cities in America in 1990, and still is today. The environmental policies that were absolutely necessary in Los Angeles weren’t needed at all in Chattanooga.
One of the problems the left have is that their collectivist mindset demands one-size-fits-all solutions because they want everybody to be the same. However if you ask any fashion conscious woman how well do one size fits all solutions work in clothing, the answer will probably be too profane for a public forum.
One of the reasons socialism always fails is that for all their screeching to the contrary, socialists cannot abide diversity either at local or national national level. Thus we are seeing theEuropean Union falling apart as a result of its attempts to politically and financially integrate all its diverse member states (from industrial power house Germany, population 85 million,) to the island nation of Malta (population 350,000) with its fishing and tourism based economy.And we are seeing Britain (now out of the EU,) and other member states torn apart as divisions, between north and south, east and west, city and rural communities go unaddressed because the broad left, the neo – liberal, globalist consensus imposes national and global policies to problems that require local solutions.
The result of trying to pass national legislation to solve local problems is that you’re going to get a lot of push back from people who don’t have the problem you have. Moreover, they don’t want to spend money solving a problem they don’t have.
If I had, now how does the song go?, “A mark, a yen, a buck or a pound,” for every time I’ve read ridiculous statements like “Conservatives hate clean air and water” in response to their opposition to proposed environmental legislation that would shut down entire industries, I would perhaps have accumulated enough to take a holiday in some unspoiled island paradise in The Caribbean – maybe. But what for.There’s plenty of unspoiled countryside around where I live in north Lancashire and the air is clean. Yet less than 50 miles away away in Manchester, Liverpool or Leeds the usual big city pollution problems apply
How can the left reasonably expect someone who can look outside and sees a lot of green, clean air, clean water, and a sustainably-developed/ undeveloped/unspoiled/unpolluted woodland, hillsides and valleys, fast flowing streams in all directions that they should pay more in taxes to fix problems that in most places don’t need fixing?And how incompetent would a government have to be to spend shitloads of taxpayers money in order to provide a nationwide solution to a problem that only exists in a few localities.
How can you reasonably expect someone who has zero need for more regulations, more constraints on their freedom, which would be completely unnecessary where they live, to be happy to pay the extra taxes and accept the curtailment of personal liberty?
Think it through. If a footballer breaks a leg during a game you don’t sent the whole team to hospital to have the broken bone set in a cast. If a kid eats something rotten and gets a gut infection you don’t give the whole school antibiotics.
The way left wing thinking works is like the guy with the shittiest yard in the street telling everyone else they should be doing more to keep the neighborhood nice.
In reality, most of the country, my country, your country, any country, is perfectly fine from an environmental impact standpoint. You wouldn’t pay someone to mow your lawn if your lawn didn’t need to be mowed. You wouldn’t pay a mechanic to fix your car if it wasn’t broken. And you wouldn’t be happy if government regulators came and said “Listen, we’re going to raise your taxes because people with overgrown lawns and inoperable cars can’t be arsed sorting their problems out.”
So, on the same token, why should communities who already do a good job taking care of the environment where they live be taxed and burdened with regulations to solve a problem they don’t have?
If the left understood this and focused environmental policy at the state and local levels, instead of the national and global, they would not be facing collapse here, in the USA, Europe etc. Why am I writing advice for the left when I am a libertarian you might well ask. It’s because I know I’m safe, the left never learn because they can never accept they are wrong. They can never admit those who oppose them might have a better understanding of a problem. Even now, after suffering a crushing defeat in the General Election two months ago, the UK Labour Party cannot acknowledge that working class voters abandoned then because they are perceived as out of touch with ordinary people, obsessed with minority issues like gay and trans rights, with pandering to Islamic extremists and with exporting more British jobs to China, India and other emerging economies in pursuit of unrealistic and self destructive targets for reducing CO2 emissions.
Greta Thunberg (well obviously the wealthy Marxists behind the far left campaign to destroy the economy of the developed world that the little Swedish muppet is fronting because of her ’emotional blackmail’ factor, and the Extinction Rebellion loonies have been ramping up the hysteria about an imminent, global climate catastrophy that could destroy life on earth.
Well us punters are not buying it, oh yes, mainstream media are dutifully reportint the scaremongering as if only a few obdurate die hards are still calling the claims of the warmageddonist lobby fake science, but in reality, while the noisy few, the virtue signalling addicts of the university brainwashed left are screaming and shouting the overwhelming majority of us just see it for what it is, a power grab by the globalist elites who want to abolish democracy, national sovereignty and personal independence and create an authoritarian world government.
That the human race is still “alive and well” after the preidicted catastrophes of 2000, 2005, 2010m 2012, 2015 and 2017 failed to materialise speaks loudly of our ability to adapt to the planet’s changing climate or of the hypothetical nature of the climate trends that were predicted to cause runaway tembperature incrases, rapidly rising sea levals, mass extinctions, the disappearance of the ice caps and all the rest.
The hypothesis that human activities, specifically the generation of carbon dioxide by industry, transport, home heating, agriculture and permafrost ment is causing the global temperature to rise is not supported by the climate models themselves. As for the reality (not something scientists are familiar with) the global mean temperature has not risen for twenty years.
Those highly scientific mathematical models of the climate that are using atmospheric CO2 as a benchmark for when tipping point is reached and climate change becomes irreversible have yet to match actual world conditions in their forecasting.
Additionally, some 1,500 peer-reviewed scientific papers published between 2016 and 2018 are skeptical of human-caused climate change. In 2019, there are about 200 more such reports, including scientists in Finland who found “practically no anthropogenic [man-made] climate change” after a series of studies. Their results have been corroborated by scientists in Japan.
Chinese scientists say they have found evidence beneath a lake in northeastern China that ties climate change to 500-year sun cycles. And therein lies the major factor in earth’s changing climate . . . the variable output of the sun’s energy . . . cycling between Solar Maxima and Solar Minima conditions. Ominously perhaps, the sun is cycling towards the lowest energy output in two centuries, and the many record snowfalls and record cold temperatures (over 7000 in the U.S. alone) being set in many parts of the globe may be a precursor of the global cooling in our near future.
So rather than being scared into surrendering ourselves to the tender mercies of a global slave state, shouldn’t we be prepping to deal with the coming cold spell? To qoute a saying I’ve heard a lot these past few years –
WINTER IS COMING
Greta Thunberg and her cartoon twin Pippi Longstocking
As the backlash against the Greta Thunberg cult gathers momentum a lot of lefties are asking why the little Climate Warriorette is so hated by so many people. As usual with the left, they are asking the wrong question. Just as they asked, “Why can’t you believe the scientists, they spend their lives studying climate, they know what they are talking about, why can’t you just accept the science is settled?” when in fact not only is it always legitimate (and scientific,) to question and challenge scientific theory, so it is perfectly rational and logical to challenge the Cult of Saint Greta.
“The science” on climate change was never settled of course, in fact a lot of it was very dodgy, being based on output from mathematical models run on computers managed by people with a career investment in persuading people to believe the catastrophes forecast by these computer models, which were fed adjusted data rather than information from observations of the real world.
This goes a long away towards explaining why none of the dire predictions of catastrophic natural disasters predicted by Warmageddonists over the past twenty five years has come true. It is 2020, snow is falling in Scotland and Northern England, in the USA, Canada, Germany, France, Scandinavia, yet climate sciencetits (not a typo,) told us with great certainty that snow would be a thing of the past by 2010. Likewise they told us rapidly rising sea levels caused by the melting of the ice caps would submerge low lying nations like The Maldives by 2010. Earlier this week my brother booked his annual post Christmas holiday in The Maldives. He’s pretty certain it will still be there, because he went to the same resort last year and found it above water.
And yet, despite all the demonstrable evidence to the contrary, Warmageddonists still insist we must accept that “the science” is correct because sciencetits (not a typo,) are very clever and they say the science is settled.
The Greta Thunberg thing took off, I believe, because the Warmageddonist movement had lost so much credibility, they were desperate to prevent the wheels coming off their globalist bandwagon. And so they resorted to the dirtiest of tactics. Now that is backfiring too.
I don’t think it is hatred of Little Saint Greta that drives the criticism so much as that people dislike and are angered by the way the girl’s handlers are manipulating her to be the poster child for a campaign based on a particularly nasty kind of emotional blackmail. It is the same kind of blackmail as was used at the height of the European Union’s when pictures of a drowned child lying on a beach somewhere in the Greek Islands was accompanied by screaming headlines in mainstream media about how heartless Europeans were in not welcoming anyone who wanted to come from a third world country to “seek a better life” (a very emotive phrase,) in Europe.
It turned out the boy was not from a migrant family at all, but had been taken along for the ride by his father who was in the human trafficking business and drowned when the overloaded inflatable boat sank on the crossing from Turkey to Greece with a cargo of people who had paid exorbitant fees to be smuggled into the EU illegally.
I believe Greta Thunberg has just turned 17 so I started commenting on her activities when she was sixteen and one of the things I remarked on was that she was like no sixteen year old Swedish girl I encountered when working in that country a few years ago. They are mostly stylish, fashion conscious and desperate to give the impression they are older than their years. Greta Thunberg looked and dressed as a ten or eleven year old would, i.e. as a child. And she conjured childish tears when talking about her childhood being stolen. It was all carefully stage managed to play on the emotions of adults. I actually referred to her as a wannabe Pippi Longstocking, a reference to the children’s fiction character created by Astrid Lindgren (https://www.astridlindgren.com/en/characters/pippi-longstocking) in the 1940s, a little girl with special powers.
If Greta’s childhood has been stolen it is not by climate change, but by the people who are using (or abusing perhaps,) her to advance a political agenda.
So my view, shared by many other people around the web, is criticisms of Greta Thunberg are not motivated so much by anger at her, the socially inept teenager with learning difficulties and Asperger’s syndrome, as anger at the fictional character created by those who are managing her campaign and putting words in her mouth. People are more likely to feel sympathy for her.
Beyond that, there is a growing stack of evidence that the “science” behind the climate change scare is fraudulent, and the fact that United Nations climate experts have confessed that they look at output from mathematical models when formulating their long term forecasts rather than giving priority to real world evidence.
All of this damages the credibility of the case for destroying industrial civilization as does the focus of Ms Thunberg and other activists on demanding that the liberal democracies bear the full burden of reducing CO2 emissions while China (https://originalboggartblog.wordpress.com/2019/11/21/clean-green-power-sucks-china-goes-all-out-for-coal/), India, Brazil, Philippines, Nigeria and other developing nations continue to develop their industrial base without regard for the environmental effects of their economic expansion. The link in this paragraph leads to a page which exposes how many new coal powered generating plants are under construction or planned right now in China, it is more than in the whole of Europe. India is following the same path.
Finally, “the masses” as left wing intellectuals contemptuously refer to us ordinary people who work hard for decent living, do not like being treated as if we are stupid or told what we must think and how we must behave. In a democratic society we have a right to question “the science” of climate change, and when questioned it does not stand up to logical analysis. So Greta Thunberg’s handlers who send her across the Atlantic in a specially built carbon fibre yacht (check out how CO2 intensive the manufacturing process for carbon fibre is,) and the other elitists who fly halfway round the world in their private jets for a lunch meeting (Yes Leonardo DefuckingCaprio, I’m talking about you,) are hardly going the right way about winning the battle for hearts and minds are they? Personally I feel no hatred to Greta (just don’t get me started on Leonardo DefuckingCaprio,) but think the people who turned her into a social media phenomenon should be exposed for the abusive opportunistic charlatans they are.
After a year of being given earache by Greta Thunberg, a pain in the arse by the posh, privileged crusties of Extincton Rebellion and having our heads done in by the ignorant, self – righteous prating of sciencetits, media luvvies, showbiz has beens, attention seeking politicians about the imminent climate catastophe that will destroy life on our panet, here’s a brief commentary on the track records of those useless arseholes who manage to milk money out of us poor taxpayers by predicting disaster, when actually they have no more idea of what is happening than you and I:

Climate change hoax COLLAPSES as new science finds human activity has virtually zero impact on global temperatures
We have previously highlighted this report from Finland which exposes the great flaw in “the science” of global warming. The link at the end of this extract takes you to a much more complete account of the research project which, not for the first time debunks the fake science on which the politically – motivate climate change scare.
Fellow Slams The Royal Society as Nothing But a Lobby Group for Climate Change.
Another respected scientist comes out and denounces the science behind the climate change scare as a fraud. The whole thing has been a scam to justify punitive taxes on fuel and enable the rich to make fortunes trading carbon credits. Again it shows what a sack of rogues the climate science community really are.
Another Kick In The Bollocks For Warmageddonists And CAGWARTS*
I’ve had many arguments with the Warmageddonists, the people who have been saying that if we did not shut down all coal, oil and gas related activites the earth was going to turn into a giant furnace and we would all burn. When the scaremongering first started, the deadline for frying was “after dinner”. Then it got to “Tomorrow …… or the day after tomorrow perhaps,” then “next year”, “before 2050,” and eventually “soon.”
What if man-made climate change is all in the mind?
If our view of reality is shaped by the mind and our perceptions of information, how successful are attempts to manipulate the perceptions of the whole populations through manipulated data, spin and assertions of authority likely to be. As scientists and politicians moan that the public no longer take sertiously climate change scare stories, we have to conclude, not very.
Meteorologists Begin To Admit To Climate Engineering
The freethinkers and Libertarians of New Media have been questioning the pseudoscientific certainties of the global warming lobby for a long time. During that often acrimonious process (because the Global Warming lobby are ever bit as organised and as driven by blind hatred of those who question them as the Bearded Queens In Bridal Gowns lobby) and most of us have been accused of infanticide, genocide and worse. At last the respectable climate scientists (the ones who didn’t sell their arse for the corporate dollar) are speaking, and the media are listening.
