SHOCK FINDING

...renewables NOT renewable

There is an incessant chorus from the green gospellers glorifying “renewable” energy and warning disbelievers that continued use of carbon fuels will damn the world to eternal fires of global warming.


CARBON CAPTURE AND BURIAL

... a biocidal policy

There are four non-toxic gases-of-life in Earth’s protective atmospheric blanket. None should be captured and buried. The most abundant is nitrogen – 78%. If there was no nitrogen there would be no plant or animal protein and a very different world.


REMEMBRANCE DAY

...and things we've forgotten to remember

Today is Remembrance Day, an appropriate time to reflect on our ability to defend ourselves. History holds lessons. Back in Dec 1941, Japan suddenly attacked the huge US Naval base at Pearl Harbour.


Warmth is Good, Cold is the Killer


SHHHH, BE QUIET!

... the science is settled

Governments are running huge deficits, but still spend billions on “climate research” especially trying to model the effect of the atmosphere and its trace of carbon dioxide on surface temperature. Benefits are hard to find. It may have improved weather forecasts by a day or so, but official long-term predictions have not improved in the last fifty years.


GREENS' BEYOND ZERO EMISSIONS

let's hear how they will do it

In January 2014 OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurría called for “a plan to achieve zero net greenhouse emissions globally.” Not to be outdone, Australia has an organisation named “Beyond Zero Emissions”

Carbon Footprints – Good, Bad and Ugly


Penguins Pray for Global Warming

For decades, climate alarmists have been attempting to trigger global cooling by killing industry with carbon taxes and absorbing solar energy with windmills, solar panels and wood-fired power stations.

Unsettled Science

We are told by government-funded climate alarmists that their forecasts of dangerous man-made global warming rely on “settled science”. Their “settled science” represents a mare’s nest of computer models, resting on a few match-sticks of science, surrounded by tall forests of uncertainty

Five Fatal Flaws of Solar Energy

The sun is the most important energy source on Earth. It provides our daily warmth and light and the rotation and orbit of the earth turn its steady output into fluctuating day and night, summer and winter. Solar energy powers the growth of all trees, grasses, herbs, crops and algae; it creates the clouds and powers the storms; it is the source of all hydro, photo-voltaic (PV), solar-thermal, bio-mass and wind energy; and, over geological time, it also creates coal.


Shivering in the Dark

Yesterday, the temperature here at Rosevale in Queensland rose 25 deg in just 8 hours - from zero at 6 am to 25 deg at 2 pm. It rose at the rate of 3 deg per hour, and every degree of warmth felt better.
