Opinions vs Facts

Climate is always changing, but luckily we live in an era with a stable, benign, warm climate and a healthy, abundant bio-sphere.

Alarmists who claim that today’s climate changes are unprecedented have not checked the climate history written in the rocks, the ice cores, the satellite registers and the tide gauges.

Ice core records show that current temperatures and sea levels are not extreme - they are more stable than they were as the last ice age ended just 12,000 years ago. At that time, global temperature increased quickly, the great ice sheets melted, sea levels rose rapidly (130 metres), and the warming seas expelled much of their dissolved carbon dioxide into the atmosphere 

As a result of this natural global warming and the additional moisture and carbon dioxide plant food in the atmosphere, plant life recovered and the great forests and grasslands were re-established.

Check the Ice Core Records:

Not one coal-fired power station, diesel truck or feedlot of belching bovines contributed to those massive climate changes; and ancient witch-doctors were unable to prevent flooding of coastal settlements by sacrificing humans to the Climate God. Then, as now, nature controls the climate.

More recent evidence from ice cores, sediment layers and even historical records show that for the last 7,000 years Earth’s climate has been relatively stable. Even more recently, satellite records show that global temperatures have not risen significantly for 18 years.

Check satellite temperature records:

The tide gauges surrounding the Pacific show that sea levels are barely rising and satellites show that there is little change in the average area of polar ice.

Check the Sea Levels:

Our climate is NOT changing rapidly, no matter how often alarmists and their media mates repeat this lie.

Today, witch-doctors wearing UN/IPCC head-dress are again demanding that humans sacrifice their industry and jobs on the carbon altar in the hope of changing the climate. This sacrifice will enrich green vested interests but will fail to change the climate.

Alarmists should check the facts. Just one stubborn fact or careful observation will beat 97 pal-reviewed opinions.

Some Fact Checking on Bank of England alarmism:

Alarmists should heed Senator Moynihan’s advice: 
“You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts.”


Sydney's sister city of San Fran... or is it brother city?




It's a well known fact !

The IPCC is gonna hate this.

The BIG GOVERNMENT funded fraudsters, and the BIG GOVERNMENT funded "Education"(indoctrination) System, seems to be proving their incompetence, because after almost 3 decades, the only voters who are true believers are the young and naïve.

Always a pleasure to read the un-homogenised facts thank you Viv.

How many shills in the "climate change" industry, misinforming and scaring the children, PM?

Do you really think ALL that money will go into "safer" housing.
More likely lavish housing for the distributors of that money.

I think a lot of people are growing tired of hearing that CO2 is so terrible when in fact there has been an increase in vegetation right across the world. It's always sounded pathetic from Labor and the Greens but now even more tragic. Here is a link to an article by an American, David Siegel, who confesses he has seen the light on the scam: Each day I find it interesting to check the hottest and coldest on record for that day. Today, 20th October 1900 recorded 36.3 degrees as the hottest on record.

As with any crime, always follow the money. The UN was broke before global warming and the biggest debtor was the US. Now with peddling the global warming con it is not only overflowing with cash it has put on countless bureaucrats and employ scientists to feed the scam. All the while the gullible and those who need to be told how to think fall into it. Not to mention governments who will reap billions of tax dollars to waste on inefficient, ineffective technology and hold power from these same idiots. Great work by them, create a non existent problem and then create the solution. Like Adolph said: 'Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it'.

O/T. Can we get our planes to hell out of Syria, before we are treated to some cock-up , where one gets shot down, "accidentally", like MH17 ? At least MH17 was legally there even if it was stupid. Our RAAF is not even legitimately in Syria. Or have we declared war on Syria ? Or is it that the Yanks need help to bomb more civilians power stations in Aleppo ? We are dangerously close to war criminal status, the US would drop us in it , if it was in their interest.

Our Govt is signed onto Agenda 21. They MUST follow the orders of the New World Order. We are required to be fewer, poorer and less empowered. The signatures are dry on the UN documents and Paris will bring more amendments.

fish fossils on mountains, animal fossils on the bottom of the ocean........hello.....

You don't think Mal knows all this? Banks and banksters make money from trading in fear. Truth is the casualty.

And still we are left the following legacy by the departed ex Prime Minister

On the 19th November 2014 "VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE GET STRONG AND EFFECTIVE OUTCOMES" ( Shows what a fool Mr Monkton was Tony was never a Hold Out, still all of Mr Monkton's pronouncements are rubbish)

And here he is announcing our target cuts just a few weeks ago

The Seychelles have not been anything close to being under water for a minimum of 3000 years and that is confirmed by core drilling in the lagoon of the main Island in 2008.
the hysteria over warming could be understood if they were actually concerned about the real cooling...real cooling as in "Ice age"....
Try feeding the growing world population with only 40% of the worlds arable land available for cropping....and 40% of the planet in a perpetual winter all year.....
Global warming is the greatest wank since the hoola hoop

sorry folks, fat finger. real post follows: what a remarkable assembly of misleading pseudo factoids. For those who may be seriously interested in reality, google "PETM" (Paleocene Eocene thermal maximum) and despair. One does not need a degree in geology to understand the message from the past.


Green logic ... If you stand in the water two meters from the beach the water is below your knees however, if you go into the water twenty meters from the beach the water may well come up to your chest ... there you go, absolute proof of rising sea-levels.

Some of the people that live on man made islands off the coast of Malaita, in the Solomons, have never needed to add extra height over sea level, as the "sea" has never risen. Except in a massive storm or typhoon. Then they move to the main island and sit out the storm with relatives.

There are always 2 sides to everything so if you don't believe the UN & NATO are not geo engineering prove it Viv. I didn't believe man could wreck the planet but now I'm not so sure, explain away Dane Wigington's if you are.

Quote from David Archibald’s TWILIGHT OF ABUNDANCE:
“Global warming did serve a couple of useful purposes. The issue has been a litmus test for our political class. Any politician who has stated a belief in global warming is either a cynical opportunist or an easily deluded fool. In neither case should that politician ever be taken seriously again. No excuses can be accepted. “ They will all shortly be on display in Paris.

These are official IPCC spokesmen that should be re-read by all:

“Prof. Dr H. Stephen Schneider, lead author in Working Group II of the IPCC (said in 1989): ‘For these reasons we have to announce terrifying scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements with no mention of any doubts whatever which we might have. In order to attract attention, we need dramatic statements leaving no doubt about what is said. Every one of us researchers must decide how far he would want to be honest rather than effective.”

In an interview published in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung on 14 November 2010, Ottmar Edenhofer, co-chair of IPCC Working Group III, said “The climate summit in Cancun at the end of the month is not a climate conference, but one of the largest economic conferences since the Second World War…. one must say clearly that de facto we redistribute the world's wealth by climate policy…. One has to rid oneself of the illusion that international climate politics have anything to do with environmental concerns.”
