We’ve been saying it since this blog began in 2005 and before, the Climate Change scare is part of a power grab by the global elites who, unterstanding that Marxism is the most elitist political philosophy since the Patricians ruled The Roman Empire, have embraced Cultural Marxism and want to enslave us all in a global, bureaucratic dictatorship.
Well OK, that’s maybe a bit extreme, but we all like to attract traffic to our blogs and sensationalism is as god a way as any. The basic premise holds true though: the unanimity of opinion on climate change, its effects and causes is not just exaggerated, not even a myth, it’s a fairy story as this report demonstrates …
500 Scientists Write U.N.: ‘There Is No Climate Emergency’

More than 500 scientists and professionals in climate and related fields have sent a “European Climate Declaration” to the Secretary-General of the United Nations asking for a long-overdue, high-level, open debate on climate change.
Just as 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg addressed the U.N. Climate Action Summit in New York accusing world leaders of robbing her of her future, scientists were begging the United Nations to keep hysteria from obscuring facts.
“Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” the declaration states. “Scientists should openly address the uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real benefits as well as the imagined costs of adaptation to global warming, and the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of mitigation.”
The scientists underscored the importance of not rushing into enormously expensive climate action before fully ascertaining the facts.
“There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent,” they declared. “However, CO2-mitigation measures are as damaging as they are costly. For instance, wind turbines kill birds and bats, and palm-oil plantations destroy the biodiversity of the rainforests.”
The signatories of the declaration also insist that public policy must respect scientific and economic realities and not just reflect the most fashionable frenzy of the day.
A team of scientist sounds the alarm in a new Science Policy Forum report about a mysterious US government program that is developing genetically modified viruses that would be dispersed into the environment using insects. The virus-infected or ‘Frankenstein’ weaponised insects are being developed as countermeasures against potential natural and engineered threats to the US food supply. The program is operated by the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) could be viewed as an attempt to develop an entirely new class of bioweapons that would prompt other nations to seek similar weapons, they cautioned.
I’ve lost count of how many times this blog has highlighted the extraordinary consistency with which politicians and scientists working in concert manage to achieve the exact opposite of what they are aiming for.
One might be tempted to think that the first step in proposing a scientific solution to any problem is to first understand what harm the unintended consequences of your solution might cause. And then having stepped back, looked at the bigger picture and thought OMFG, that’s not good, maybe reconsider. It should be a no brainer, so what does that say about the science that keeps leading its practicioners into the same trap?
Still, as any comedian knows if a joke is worth doing once it is worth doing a thousand times, so here we go again with the latest variation on a theme.
A report in The Daily Telegraph tells us the orang-utan population of Indonesia is being driven to the brink of extinction thanks to the massive deforestation underway to satisfy the rapidly growing demand for palm oil as a clean, green, sustainable biofuel.
Some scientists estimate that as many as 95 percent of the orang-utans native to Sumatra have already been wiped out.
Isn’t it ironic that the Warmageddonist mob are so humourless they will never see the irony in this?

Maltesers: Does the Earth have a honeycomb centre like these sweets? (Source)
Russia Today reports that a major project is to be launched to investigate a mysterious huge hole that suddenly appeared in one of the most remote and inaccessible regions of northern Russia’s . It was unclear what had caused the gaping crater, about 100 meters in diameter, filmed from the air (see YouTube video below) in Yamal, which means “the end of the Earth” in the local Nenets language, where arctic temperatures winter temperatures regulrly plunge to -55 degrees Fahrenheit. Yamal, inhabited by indigenous reindeer herders, is one of Russia’s richest regions in natural gas.
The hole was found near the Bovanentsky gas field, leading to speculation that it could have been caused by an underground explosion. No Thor’s Hammer found as yet, not a secret passage to a ‘Stately Pleasuredome’ (where Aelph the sacred river ran, through caverns measureless to man, into a sunless sea – h/t Samuel Taylor Coleridge and Kublai Khan) in sight.
And, to the great disappointment of certain American conspiracy sites I like to look at, there was no evidence of an underground city built by The Nephilim millions of years ago, nor the secret headquarters of a megalomaniac, paraplegic, billionaire psychopath who rolls around in a nuclear wheelchair with a white Persian Cat on his knee as the plots to seize control of the world.
Other theories we are dismissing at this stage include Godzilla breaking loose from his thousand food deep tomb to terrorize Tokyo again, and the Norse Demon Angrbodr bursting out of Niflheim to summon the forces of darkness to Ragnarok , the final battle between good and evil.
So what caused the hole. Well I’m going to suggest that all the science and mythology up to now has been wrong and the planet is really a giant Malteser offered by the God Cronos to his consort Rhea. Or maybe not.
What I really want to know however is how can you be a helicopter pilot who shot that video and not want to go down that hole and hover to get a better look. Health and Safety issues I suppose. People are such wusses these days.

Owen Paterson is Secretary of State for the Environment in the Coalition government. Owen Paterson’s brother-in-law is Viscount Matt Ridley who is, I believe, the nephew of the Nick Ridley who was a minister in Margaret Thatcher’s government. He is also a former CEO of Northern Rock Bank, which kicked off the credit crinch when it failed in 2007. Ridley is the main quoted ‘expert’ and media proponent of fracking in Britain. Ridley has financial links with companies that are involved in fracking.
Owen Paterson: fracking bastard
Owen Paterson is entirely in favour of fracking, to the extent that he won’t even discuss the subject with his constituents and near neighbours who are directly affected by fracking proposals. There have been rumours that land owned by Paterson lies above bedrock rich in shale gas but I have not been able to confirm this.
Though the long term effects of fracking are not clear, experience in the UK, Australia and the USA shows that when frackers move into an area, residents fuck off (if they can afford to). House prices tumble and various problems result in forcing water into the bed rock at high pressure.
In spite of serious concerns about the effects of fracking, current law makes no provision for property owners to be compensated if their assets are damaged by fracking operations.
Nice to know the people in power are so crystal clear about whose interests they should be looking after.
