The Dark Story Behind Global Warming aka Climate Change

By F. William Engdahl via Information Clearing House

The recent UN global warming conference under auspices of the deceptively-named International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded its meeting in South Korea discussing how to drastically limit global temperature rise. Mainstream media is predictably retailing various panic scenarios “predicting” catastrophic climate change because of man-made emissions of Greenhouse Gases, especially CO2, if drastic changes in our lifestyle are not urgently undertaken. There is only one thing wrong with all that. It’s based on fake science and corrupted climate modelers who have reaped by now billions in government research grants to buttress the arguments for radical change in our standard of living. We might casually ask “What’s the point?” The answer is not positive.

The South Korea meeting of the UN IPCC discussed measures needed, according to their computer models, to limit global temperature rise to below  1.5 Centigrade above levels of the pre-industrial era. One of the panel members and authors of the latest IPCC Special Report on Global Warming, Drew Shindell, at Duke University told the press that to meet the arbitrary 1.5 degree target will require world CO2 emissions to drop by a staggering 40% in the next 12 years. The IPCC calls for a draconian “zero net emissions” of CO2 by 2050. That would mean complete ban on gas or diesel engines for cars and trucks, no coal power plants, transformation of the world agriculture to burning food as biofuels. Shindell modestly put it, “These are huge, huge shifts.”

The new IPCC report, SR15, declares that global warming of 1.5°C will “probably“ bring species extinction, weather extremes and risks to food supply, health and economic growth. To avoid this the IPCC estimates required energy investment alone will be $2.4 trillion per year. Could this explain the interest of major global banks, especially in the City of London in pushing the Global Warming card?

Scaremongering IPCC Pushes Climate Hysteria with New Doomsday Report

Those discredited jokers, gropers and fake scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have surpassed themselves in the idiocy stakes in their latest Summary for Policy Makers. It is just a rehashed version of the farrago of adjusted data, dubious science, wailing and gnashing of teeth and eco-fascistic edicts on how we shall all live our lives in the future.

Here are a few of the main points:

Sea levels are rising. (As they have been, by the way, at the same harmless pace, for centuries),

The crisis is so dire that even if all the countries stick to their Paris Accord commitments, it still won’t be enough to stop the planet heating by 2 degrees C or more.

Drastic lifestyle changes must be made, drastic carbon emissions cuts must be implemented to stave off further disaster,(no mention of how many of the thirty – something thousand deligates to the Paris climate conference turned up in private jets, oh no, us ordinary punters must change OUR lifestyles but the elites must live ever more lavishly, in order that they may be at their best when dealing with the onerous tasks involved in saving the planet.)

$2.4 trillion must be spent by 2035 on sustainable energy projects such as wind and solar
, (even though these ‘sustainable’ sources have failed to prove they can supply the baseload required by modern, developed societies.)

Climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security, and economic growth are projected to increase as the planet warms

Vector borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever will likely increase

One observer – Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation – describes it as the IPCC’s “Hail Mary”: its last, desperate shot at trying to scare a world which just doesn’t care any more. He’s right. None of the predictions made by the warmageddonist lobby over the past twenty years have been correct. Snow is not a folk memory, the arcitic sea ice has not disappeared, the predicted 50 million refugees displaced by rising sea levels must be wearing Harry Potter’s cloak of invisibility.

The reason people no longer believe the “last chance to save the planet” bollocks is first, we’ve heard it many times before, second, it hasn’t been supported by real-world evidence and thirdly because thanks to the internet and free speech (which governments, aided and abetted by Google and Facebook, want to abolish,) we have access to all the scientific research projects conducted by diligent researchers according to the scientific medthod (i.e. no adjusted data,) and these reports make sense.

Take that tired old line on vector borne diseases. Anyone who has followed this saga or researched it thoroughly knows that this claim was debunked years ago by an expert epidemiologist, Paul Reiter.

As far back as 1998, just as the hysteria was starting to rev up, Reiter delivered a lecture on this subject to the Cooler Heads Coalition:

All attempts to link specific recent outbreaks to climate change cannot survive a confrontation with the facts. In all cases, local conditions (such as the banning of DDT, land use changes, or foreign contact) account for expansions of disease vectors or increases in infection rates.

Yet here is the IPCC, trotting out the same old scare stories as if no one’s paying attention.

What is new, or new-ish, is the IPCC’s fairly frank acknowledgement that the Paris Climate Accord was a failure. What would be really meaningful is if the IPCC would admit that its attempts to push the globalist agenda by creating a big scary monster have failed.

Meanwhile an independent (and not nearly so enthusiastically reported by mainstream media) audit of the key temperature dataset used by climate models has exposed more than 70 problems with the data which render it “unfit for global studies.” It’s worth reminding warmageddonists, who tend to have short memories, that all the projections and predictions made by “climate scientists” to date have been based on output from ;mathematical models’ of the climate rather than empirical observation.

The problems identifided in the data include zero degree temperatures in the Caribbean, 82 degree C temperatures in Colombia and ship-based recordings taken 100km inland.

The audit concluded that the people running these mathematical models are deliberately exaggerating temperatures to support a theory of global warming utilizing global averages that point to very different outcomes to what is being forecast after the data has been adjusted.

The audit has discovered (not really, all thinking people have known for years what was going on,) that “that climate models have been tuned to reflect incorrect data, which would render incorrect their projections of future temperatures and estimates of the influence of human activity on temperatures.” Furthermore, the Paris Climate Agreement’s adoption of 1850-1899 averages as “indicative” of pre-industrial temperatures is “fatally flawed.” The entire Paris Climate Agreement has an agenda to eliminate effectively the advancement of society and attempt to reset the clock to the pre-Industrial Revolution. This entire theory that before the Industrial Revolution, our planet’s atmosphere was somehow pristine and uncontaminated by human-made pollutants has been also proven to be completely bogus with archaeological finds showing human activity was affecting the environment 2000 years ago.

An indication that rather than simple scientific concern for the environment, there is a rather unpleasant and authoritarian political agenda at work in the warmageddonist agenda is revealed in the IPCC reports recommendation that we should all eat less meat and propaganda should be employed to nudge everybody towards a vegetarian or vegan diet. Now there are plenty of conservative vegetarians, it is not just a left wing thing, but for the left everything is political thus vegetarianism cannot be a matter of individual choice, it has to be made a political issue.

This new audit also argues that even the most simple basic quality checks have not been done on the HadCRUT4 dataset, which is managed by the UK Met Office Hadley Centre and the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. The audit exposed that estimates (guesses,) were made to cover uncertainties arising from thermometer accuracy, homogenization, sampling grid boxes with a finite number of measurements available, large-scale biases such as urbanization and estimation of regional averages with non-complete global measurement coverage.

******

The audit has exposed the dishonesty in this entire scheme and it appears to be directed at the goal of reducing the population. Anomalies it has identified include at St Kitts in the Caribbean, the average temperature for December 1981 was zero degrees, normally it’s 26C. For three months in 1978, one place in Colombia reported an 82 degrees Celsius average – hotter than the hottest day on Earth. Then in Romania, one September the average temperature was reported as minus 46°C, which has never happened. The data showed that supposedly ships would report ocean temperatures from places up to 100km inland. The paper also points out that the most serious flaws identified was the shortage of data. For the first two years, from 1850 onwards, the only land-based reporting station in the Southern Hemisphere was in Indonesia. Then there were ship observations at the time but Australian records had not started until 1855 in Melbourne, behind Auckland which started in 1853. This data appears to have been just made up.

According to the HadCRUT4 calculation of coverage, it was almost 1950 before there was data from even half of the Southern Hemisphere was available. Yet they claim global warming has taken hold for 100 years prior. Then the Paris Climate Agreement takes the HadCRUT4 average from 1850 to 1899 as an “indicative” temperature or pre-Industrial Revolution. There is absolutely no possible way the data set being used to support all this Global Warming is even valid for any forecast.

Climate: Earth is set for BIG FREEZE as sun goes BLANK for majority of 2018?

According to the webite Space Weather the sun has been void of sunspots for more than half of the year as scientists believe the Earth could be in for a spell of extreme cold with winters more harsh than usual and summers delivering poor harvests.

This is nothing to do with Carbon Dioxide emissions or human activity, it’s about that huge firey ball in the sky that climate scientists like to ignore even though it is known to have a significant effect on the planet’s climatic conditions.

Observers report the sun has been free of sunspots for a total of 133 days this year. With only 241 days of 2018 passing, that means the sun has been blank for the majority of the year. Experts warn this is a sign that the solar minimum is on its way.

Website Space Weather for 30 August, 2018 (click link above and enter required date in dialog box, top right of home page for archive,) says: “The sun is spotless again. For the 133rd day this year, the face of the sun is blank.

“To find a year with fewer sunspots, you have to go back to 2009 when the sun was experiencing the deepest solar minimum in a century.“Solar minimum has returned, bringing extra cosmic rays, long-lasting holes in the sun’s atmosphere, and strangely pink auroras.”The sun follows cycles of roughly 11 years where it reaches a solar maximum and then a solar minimum. During a solar maximum, the sun gives off more heat and is littered with sunspots. Less heat in a solar minimum is due to a decrease in magnetic waves.The sun was not expected to head into a solar minimum until around 2020, but it appears to be heading in early which could prove to be bad news. The last time there was a prolonged solar minimum, it led to a ‘mini ice-age’, scientifically known as the Maunder minimum – which lasted for 70 years.

The Maunder minimum, which saw seven decades of freezing weather, began in 1645 and lasted through to 1715, and happened when sunspots were exceedingly rare. During this period, temperatures dropped globally by 1.3 degrees Celsius leading to shorter seasons and ultimately food shortages.

The ‘Hunger Stones’ Crush Climate Change ‘Warmageddon’ Scaremongers.

Authored by Martin Armstrong via ArmstrongEconomics.com,

Every time during the past twenty years when there has been a spell of unusually hot weather, the Global Warming fanatics have come crawling out from under the stones they hope wil protect them from the rampant sun’s merciless rays, screaming, “We told you so, you horrible climate deniers, the earth is being fried because you insist on driving cars, heating your homes, cooking you food and earning a living. And while they blether incoherently and unscientifically about carbon dioxide and human activity they continue to ignore history. The extreme heat in Europe this year is part of well (if unusually documented) irregular cycle.

Swings from extreme heat to extreme cold have been going on throughout recorded history. They have been recorded by medieval monks, renaissance era scholars, enlightenment era scientists and since the medieval era at least, by people with club hammers and stone chisels. One of the most unusual but irrefutable sets of historical evidence we have, and which is ignored by climate change scaremongers are known as the Hunger Stones.

Pictured above is a Hunger Stone from 1616 which has been exposed by the low level of water in the Elbe River.

Such events have been recorded when drought has resulted in the low level of water in the Elbe river.

The above scene is at Decin, in the Czech Republic. Throughout the centuries, there have been cycles of extreme heat followed by extreme cold (e.g. so called the mini ice age, when the River Thames in London froze each winter for several years and Londoners held ‘frost fairs’ on the ice).  Such fairs were also common in Europe where continental weather effcts generally make the winters colder than Britain’s

The hot, dry weather in Europe has, for the recorded time in over a century, exposed  the Hunger Stones that have been used for centuries to commemorate historic droughts which warn of their consequences when you see these stones again.It might be unwise to infer anything from this gap, given Europe’s political history in the twentieth centure it’s possible droughts occurred at times when people in Germany and central Europe faced bigger worries than drought.

The Hunger Stones are visible this year in the Elbe a major river which rises in the Czech Republic and flows west through Germany. There are more than a dozen Hunger Stones that serve as records of previous droughts establishing that the extreme heat and drought of this year is by no means unique to history.

The various Hunger Stones record droughts droughts that resulted in crop failure and famine on the stones dated 1417, 1616, 1707, 1746, 1790, 1800, 1811, 1830, 1842, 1868, 1892, and 1893, which covers a period of 476 years, which would take us from the end of the ‘medieval warm period’ to the end of the nineteenth century.You may remember in one of the most notorious global warming frauds, Professor Michael Mann, creator of the now ridiculed ‘hockey stick graph’ erased the medieval warm period from history.

Basing his calculations on tree ring data from bog oaks, tree trunks preserved in peat bogs, which he claimed showed no unusual climate trends in the medieval warm period (which lasted several hundred years,) because the tree rings in preserved oaks pulled from north European bogs showed average or less than average growth. Mann only succeeded in proving he is either dishonest or stupid. Cool weather is not the only cause of poor growth rates as any gardener or a novice biology student could tell you. Hot, dry weather will adversely affect growth as will any unusually dry period. Trees and plants need carbon dioxide, oxygen, temeratures in the right range, and water to grow.

Some scientific types have already noted that if we look at the above drought data it produces a gap average of 39.6 years.This only proves that scientists, like Michael Mann are idiots and wankers. A quick glance at the data would show there’s no regular pattern there. An intelligent person would immediately understand this is not a scientific record and the data is probably incomplete.

It is worth noting that two drought years used to obtain that average, 1892 and 1893 are back-to-back. It’s highly unlikely there were two separate droughts,  it probable there was ab extended dry period. In fact, additional evidence that is being ignored by the Global Warming crowd who seem intent upon leading society to its doom by ignoring the past entirely and persuading governments we must suck every molecule of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere (thus making the existence on Earth of carbon based life – forms – i.e. everything including us,) impossible.

 

Germany’s Dependence on Fossil Fuels and Russian Gas

When Hausfrau – Volksfuhrer Merkel’s grip on Germany seemed unassailable she was free to let loose several personal sacred cows on the German people. One of course was her disastrous ‘open doors’ immigration police, another was the eqully disastrous green enegry policy, and now that is in ruins too.

from Institute For Energy Research

Germany embarked on Energiewende in 2010 with the goal of eventually making Germany independent of fossil fuels. The idea was to phase out oil, coal, and natural gas to allow for drastic reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. Since 2009, Germany has spent over a hundred billion euros on solar and wind energy, but carbon dioxide emissions did not decline over that period. In fact, they have risen by about 2 percent. The financial obligations from the expansion of wind and solar energy will continue to burden taxpayers for another two decades and will end-up costing German consumers around 550 billion euros.

In 2017, Germany’s energy consumption was fueled primarily by fossil fuels (79 percent). Renewables including hydroelectric power provided 15 percent and nuclear energy 5 percent. Despite the generating sector providing just about one-fifth of Germany’s total energy consumption, it was targeted to phase out its fossil fuel generating capacity under Energiewende. When the tsunami hit Japan in 2011, Germany decided to phase out its nuclear power first despite the unlikelihood of a similar disaster hitting Germany. Germany’s nuclear generation has declined by 56 percent since it reached its peak in 2001. Germany’s nuclear plants are to be shut down by 2022 and its coal-fired plants are to be closed by 2030.

Germany backs up its wind and solar units with coal-fired and natural gas-fired generation. Germany has 36 billion metric tons of coal reserves and produces domestically about half the coal it consumes. Despite its desire to reduce carbon dioxide emissions, Germany is bulldozing centuries-old villages and displacing their residents to make way for open-pit brown coal (lignite) mines. Having very few reserves of natural gas, it imports natural gas by pipeline with over half of it coming from Russia. Germany is Europe’s biggest natural gas consumer, and its demand is expected to rise by about 1 percent over the next five years as it phases out its nuclear fleet.

The Pain In Spain as Green Energy Policy Fails

You will not find anything in mainstream media, either print or broadcast, about the failure of the green energy initiatives that have left Spain in dire economic strais or Denmark in the dark. Bizarre, as other governments are pressing ahead with plans to make us reliant on these crackpot schemes and intellectual wanks of mad scientists …


Climate Scientists versus Free Speech and Freedom Of Information

This week four groups, whose boards represent a distinctly liberal world view and who oppose scrutiny of taxpayer-funded science by academics, asked the University of Virginia to disregard its agreement before the court with American Tradition Institute to provide the records of former climate scientist Dr. Michael Mann, which belong to the public. The groups, led by the far-left Union of ….

Ever Changing Ocean

The scientists warn us climate change will cause massive extinctions, species will be destroyed, nations will die, the oceans will swamp huge areas of land as sea levels rise and lots of scaremongering stuff like that. But life in the seas has survived much worse catastrophes, much more violent changes than anything we puny humand can conjure up. It is a measure of the arrogance of humans in general and scientists in particular to imagine we puny humans could destroy the planet.also availabe HERE

Climate Change and the Population Explosion
In all the debates about climate change and the effect of carbon dioxide emissions on the environment there is one issue that has a huge bearing on humanity’s relationship with our planet that neither politicians nor scientists will discuss. Population growth. So a philosopher has to step up to the mark and ask why people are encouraged to have children when we face so many population related problems?

Here’s A Snippet From A Brilliant Article On Climate Change
Those building the biblical Tower of Babel, intending to reach heaven, did not know where heaven was and hence when the project would be finished, or at what cost. Those setting out to solve the climate change problem now are in the same position. If we were to spend 10 or even 100 trillion dollars …

The Great Wind Turbine Catastrophe

Because of failure to invest in new coal and nuclear powered generating plants to provide the electric energy we need Briain now faces a serious shortfall in electricity supply as old stations, already well past their planned lifespan are forced to close. Seduced by the voices of academics and the science lobby, the government seems foolishly determined to rely on wind turbines for future electricity needs.

Film Maker Admits No Evidence To Link Starving Polar Bear Viral Video To Climate Change’

As one of those sites run by nasty fluffy-kitten-eating climate change sceptics we have taken our fair share of insults over the years from rabid lefties claiming, “but its science, you can’t question facts like that,” and then calling us a lot of unpleasant names.

Well the whole point of science is it’s there to be questioned. And as dutiful sceptics we have questioned those emotionally manipulative stories about the poor polar bears (which according to unbiased evidence are increasing in numbers,) dying because of human made climate change, the bear clinging to a very small ice floe (which was exposed as a Photoshop mash up,) and the starving polar bear foraging for food in an arid landscape that could have been southern Spain, North Africa or the Middle East.

The starving polar bear video was a heart-rending piece of viral footage: a polar bear, ravaged by the impact of climate change, starving and staggering across an ice-free landscape.

The video, watched 2.5 billion times on the National Geographic website – where the write up explicitly linked the anorexic anima’s plight to climate change was explicitly made – was used as propaganda by the green lobby. But the film-maker who shot it has now acknowledged it didn’t necessarily show a polar bear dying from the effects of climate change at all.

Cristina Mittermeier has come clean and admitted the animal could simply be old, ill or injured and unable to successfully forage for food – and it was incorrect to say the bear was starving because of climate change,’ because there was no evidence to support that.

Photographer Paul Nicklen captured the heartbreaking scene of a starving polar bear scrounging for food on dry land.

National Geographic has since edited the title of the video so there is no link to climate change.

Mittermeier says the problem began when National Geographic captioned the video ‘This is what climate change looks like’.

Mittermeier says, ‘In retrospect, National Geographic went too far with the caption.’

She said, ‘Photographer Paul Nicklen and I are on a mission to capture images that communicate the urgency of climate change. Documenting its effects on wildlife hasn’t been easy.

‘With this image, we thought we had found a way to help people imagine what the future of climate change might look like. We were, perhaps, naive. The picture went viral — and people took it literally.

‘Perhaps we made a mistake in not telling the full story — that we were looking for a picture that foretold the future and that we didn’t know what had happened to this particular polar bear.’

Oh well, it’s no worse that the use of ‘adjusted data’ in ‘mathematical models’ of the climate to produce statistics showing the planet is warming although real world data shows there has been no increase in global mean temperature for twenty years.

Global Warming? Coldest Temperatures Ever on Earth’s Surface Observed

Researchers working in the Antarctic to study the effects of global warming this week released a report revealing “ultralow surface temperatures” in East Antarctica that surpass the coldest temperatures ever recorded on the earth’s surface.

The lowest measured air temperature on earth was previously recorded as -89.2 °C (-129 F) on 23 July 1983, observed at Vostok Station in Antarctica, but new data published in Geophysical Research Letters this week, has found that some 100 different locations on the East Antarctic Plateau reached temperatures of -98° C (-144° F) during the Antarctic polar night between 2004–2016.

The researchers believe these temperatures are close to the greatest levels of cold that can be reached on the earth’s surface.

A team from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder have identified the East Antarctic Plateau — a massive, empty expanse the size of Australia that begins near the South Pole and is known as one of the dryest places on earth — as the coldest place on the planet.

The East Antarctic Plateau sits some 3,500 m (11,500 ft) above sea level and the air over the Plateau is extremely still, dry and thin, providing ideal conditions for extremes cold.

“In this area, we see periods of incredibly dry air, and this allows the heat from the snow surface to radiate into space more easily,” said Ted Scambos of the University of Colorado Boulder, lead author of the study.

East Antarctica is home to extremely low air and surface temperatures brought on by intense radiative cooling of the snow surface during prolonged wintertime periods of clear sky, weak winds, and very dry atmosphere, the report revealed. These findings tend to conform that water vapour rather than carbon dioxide is the essential greenhouse gas that makes the temperate zones suitable for supporting carbon based life forms and proects life on earth.

The researchers analyzed data from NASA’s Terra and Aqua satellites, as well as the NOAA’s Polar Operational Environmental Satellites, gathered during the Antarctic winters between 2004 and 2016, and found that snow surface temperatures regularly dipped below -90° C (-130° F) across the Plateau, with some 100 spots reaching a lowest temperature of -98° C (-144° F).

War and Politics Behind Mass Displacement in Africa, Not Climate Change – UCL
A report from a new study conducted by University College London’s may cause a stir in the climate scaremongering industry. The report challenges the academic establishment’s standard narrative of mass displacement in Africa being principally responsible for the creation of refugees in Africa and casts doubt on a number of other assumptions about global problems.

Hurricane Harvey Climate Catastrophe Man Made?As we reported last week the Hurricane Harvey disaster which has hit the U.S. states of Texas and Louisiana has shown characteristics never before observed in any hurricane or tropical storm since records began. Meteorological depressions (because that is what hurricanes, typhoons and other intense storms are,) move and once over land quickly weaken as air pressures become normalised. Harvey has stayed in the same area, dumping massive amounts of rain on the heavily populated coastal strip and causing $$$billionsworth of damage through flooding and high winds.
