...oh, so November was actually warmer six years ago?

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


But over in the US it is the coldest series of winters in living memory. "I can't remember and I don't think anyone else can remember this much snow falling in this short a period," said Mark Poloncarz of Erie County in Buffalo New York.

The cold spell has seen temperatures below freezing in all 50 States, killing 21 people and causing transport gridlock. Al Gore should be ecstatic. 

Tuesday morning this week had the coldest average November temperature across the entire country since 1976, according to meteorology consulting firm, “Weather Bell Analytics”. Apparently it was colder in 1975, so even the title “climate change” itself is a scam. 

CNN meteorologist Chad Myers called the phenomenon “thunder snow”. He explained, "The steam from the lakes is still much warmer than the air. The air temperature is in the teens and the water in the 40s. That steam wants to rise. The rise creates a thunder storm but it's so cold it doesn't rain. It just snows."

Amy Godsey, a meteorologist with the state Division of Emergency Management said, “Record-setting lows were expected in northern Florida, with minimums dipping below 20 degrees (Fahrenheit) around Tallahassee and in the Panhandle.” 

Climatologist John L. Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, warns that a radical shift in global climate is underway, and that Al Gore and other environmentalists have it completely wrong... it’s actually getting colder.

Sure, the media jumps on the “global warming” story every time there is a heat wave and each time a hurricane hits the East Coast, but has the world really warmed?

Well, according to NASA’s own data, the world has warmed 0.36 degrees over the past 35 years (they only started measuring the data in 1979 so previous temperatures can’t be compared). 

Even if they knew what the temperatures were 500 years ago it would have no significance anyway because climate change evolves and varies over tens of thousands of years and has involved ice ages that came, and eventually went due to cyclical warming.

When the last ice age gave way to cyclical “global warming” 15 thousand years ago, surely man wasn’t to be blamed then, was he?. 

So a 0.36 degree increase in temperature over the past 35 years is hardly something to get too excited about.

Granted, that DOES mean the world is warmer, right? Wrong! The trouble with the UN's IPCC modelling is that it is grossly dishonest. It selects dates that that suit its argument i.e. between 1979 and 1998 there was this miniscule degree of warming and that’s the only period they quote.

But ever since then, the planet has actually been cooling! 

The reality is this: The world is now 1.08 degrees cooler than it was in 1998. “Remote Sensing Systems Ltd”, which provides data to NASA and other scientific organisations confirms this figure.

America has experienced a succession of cooler summers and longer winters. And what the hell is wrong with warming anyway? Cooling is the worry. It’s carbon-induced warming that provides the world with food, try growing veggies in ice.

“Global warming” proponents continue to repeat that ocean temperatures are rising.

This baseless assumption is made necessary because other baseless forecasts suggest big chunks of ice will melt, killing polar bears and causing States like Florida to suffer inundation. 

In 2007, while accepting a Nobel Prize for his “global warming” initiative (and quietly pocketing millions of dollars in the process), Al Gore made another outrageous prediction that,“The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff and it could be completely gone seven years from now.”

Well it is now seven years from then, and the latest satellite images show that not only have the icecaps not melted but they have expanded in size by between 43% and 63% with the southern cap expanding to an extent not previously recorded.

Here’s what the Globe and Mail article had to say in relation to the northern cap: “An area twice the size of Alaska (America's biggest state) was open water two years ago and is now covered in ice.”
Since 2002, ocean temperatures have fluctuated between -1 and +1 degree. There is no oceanic warming.

In fact “climate change” itself is a normal occurrence. If the climate didn’t change we would all be dead inside a year. Everyone knows that, so the title has once again morphed... this time into "man-made climate change".

Al Gore stood on stage blaming us and our “gas-guzzling” cars, standard four bedroom houses, and the local factory for man-made climate change.

Of course, the hypocrisy of the claim is that Al Gore himself racks up electricity and gas bills of $30,000 pa... more than 20 times the national average.

Now, everyone agrees a clean environment is a good thing but humans have not caused any “global warming” and “climate change” is cyclically regulated, as it has been for billions of years, by the earth itself. 

Indeed, “global warming” alarmists and their allies in the Left media all agree that anthropogenic (man-made) “global warming” is real and they rely on the public’s gullibility for acceptance of such a discredited proposition.

There is far too much money involved in the scam for the warmists to admit they have been wrong all along.

President Obama tweeted on May 16, this year that, “97% of scientists agree: Climate change is real, man-made and dangerous.” John Kerry, Al Gore, and a host of others have also championed this false statistic.

The Wall Street Journal, a newspaper not known for rash statements, reported recently that, “The assertion that 97% of scientists believe that climate change is a man-made, urgent problem is a fiction.”

It is a fiction because the only studies that are accepted by the corrupt UN IPCC are those of climate alarmists. Scientific reports that show the Earth is actually cooling are not accepted and scientists within the Obama Administration who have exposed the truth have suddenly found themselves without a job.

Therefore the truth is that 100% of IPCC “scientists” say that climate change is man-made, with 3% deducted so as to appear a realistic figure. 

The IPCC is not a scientific body at all, most members are environmental activists and its role is solely to promote the UN’s climate scare because the UN’s very future relies on the billions it receives from willing nations’ taxes on carbon and its involvement in trading carbon credits.

One leading climate scientist, Kevin Trenberth, admitted: “The fact is we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.” A travesty simply because they are worried about losing their government funding.

In another email, Dr. Phil Jones, a leading “global warming” advocate at the UN, admitted that he used “Mike’s Nature trick” in a 1999 graph to “hide the decline” in temperature.

Another study by Stephen Goddard who works at “Real Science” revealed just how ridiculous “climate scientists” can get with data manipulation. Here is what he had to say: "The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been 'adjusting' its records by replacing real temperatures with data 'fabricated' by computer models.”
Professor Robert Stavins, who helped write the 2014 United Nations Climate Report, revealed to “Breitbart News” that Democrat politicians had demanded he change and edit parts of the report to fit their needs!

Honest climate scientists who refuse to be intimidated and coerced into producing false data are publicly pilloried and referred to as quacks, charlatans and senile sceptics and have had their grants cancelled. 

The incentive to go along with the climate hoax is monetarily attractive, the disincentive is the risk of losing one’s career. 

When further reviews were carried out it was discovered that a mere 1% of scientists are saying human activity is causing climate change.

A petition was signed by more than 30,000 enraged independent climate scientists that states, “there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause heating of the Earth's atmosphere and/or disruption to the Earth's climate."

Even the founding father of the "man-made global warming" theory, Claude Allegre, recently recanted his position by admitting, “The cause of climate change is unknown.”

Back in Australia Tony Abbott has been trying to convince G20 members of his belief in global warming. I can tell you now that Abbott believes “global warming” is a load of frog droppings but pragmatism rules in international affairs, despite the waste of taxpayers’ money.

He skited to France's President Hollande that Australia has a $10 billion Clean Energy Fund, but it is he (Abbott) who is attempting to have it disbanded as a waste of taxpayer funds. 

Like a similar US fund it apportions money to Green projects that have been dismissed as impractical by commercial financial institutions. 

In fact you must first show that the commercial sector has already rejected your proposal before you can qualify for a loan. Of course these ventures end mostly in tears and so far there has been no attempt made to have any loan repaid.

It’s more than a little interesting that this Clean Energy Fund of the Gillard government is a carbon copy of Obama’s, with dozens of schemes going broke, yet somehow they are still able to contribute massive sums to Party coffers.

When $500 million in taxpayer money was given to the infamously green and bankrupted US “Solyndra” company, both investors Goldman Sachs and George Kaiser were still able to ensure $1.25 million of the original $500 million went to Obama’s election campaigns.

The same occurred when $400 million was gifted to “Abound Solar” with large chunks of it finding its way back to the Democrats. “A123 Systems” received $279 million, much of which funded Democratic Senate campaigns.

The same with “First Solar” and dozens more smaller green “front” companies. Even “General Electric”, whose losses in subsidised, unsightly and uneconomic wind farms and other green schemes, helped it to legitimately pay zero tax in 2011.

Since Al Gore first dipped his hand in the cookie jar his worth has ballooned to over $100 million through investing in myriad “green-tech” companies, 14 of which received more than $2.5 billion in loans, grants and tax breaks from the Obama Administration.

Is it any wonder Australia’s ALP and the Greens have used their Senate numbers to prevent the Abbott Government from disbanding their beloved Clean Energy Fund?

Naturally the title “global warming” morphed first into “climate change” and then into "man-made" climate change for good reason. 

It will be fascinating to see what scarey title they come up with next, but the scam of separating taxpayers from their wallets remains the same.

There are two things Left leaning Western governments will have to come to terms with sooner or later: Terrorism is an Islamic problem and global warming is a hoax!

... and the sooner the bloody better.


The world has been heating up and cooling down for billions of years - but suddenly its all the fault of mankind. What bullshit!! Two things are at work - the first is man's overblown ego that makes us think that we are at the centre of the universe (say hi to Galilieo folks). The second is that the stupid Greens want to shut down our industries and return us to feeding on nuts and weaving daisy chains - and the even more stupid Laborites go along with it.

Americans are feeling ever so fold, and are freezing, from all that global warming they're experiencing right now.

Obama said we could lose the barrier reef due to ''global warming''. As China, India and the US are biggest producers of co2 and we produce only about 2% of it, Obama should not be putting any blame on us, he should have given his speech to China and India

All this cock about Climate-Change, Global Warming & The environment gives me the shits.... I am sick to death of all the cock and bull stories. These Liebour/Green devious scum have only one agenda. To force on us all their sick twisted ways. They couldn't give a fuck about anyone but them selves.

You failed to state that the alarmists' new mantra is climate change - dome have even abandoned global warming. Maybe the reversal was due to the tax we were never going to have :-))

SUNDAY: Victorian Election People's Forum
In the lead up to the 2014 Victorian State Election on November 29, Premier Denis Napthine and Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews go head to head as they take part in a People’s Forum. Moderated by Sky News Political Editor David Speers, the forum brings together 100 undecided voters in the crucial seat of Frankston, giving them the opportunity to put the important questions to both leaders. The seat of Frankston, currently held by Independent MP Geoff Shaw, has proved influential on the Victorian political landscape throughout the coalition’s first term. In this exclusive interactive opportunity, Napthine and Andrews show Victoria what they’re made of.

Not at all it is you who is impersonating you

It's OK, the idiot in the US has been shot, twice, just to be sure.

On ALPBC news today, "US records hottest October temperatures on record". So can we expect to see the ALPBC news headline next month of "coldest November temperatures on record".? Hahahahahahahahahaah !!

Been raining here off n on for past 24 hours.

The latest in a bizarre series of attempts to explain the "hiatus" in the warming scam.

I read somewhere that vapour from 40 f water in Lake Michigan is rising and being turned into snow from the -8f air temp, jeez, how much evaporating would be going on at 40 deg f.

"THE US and wealthy European nations are outsourcing their carbon dioxide emissions to China and other developing countries, while at the same time arguing for big global pollution cuts to combat climate change."

You're in danger Hermes of being labelled an apologist. The LNP has given the strong impression of appeasing so called 'moderate muslimes". As a consequence is bleeding votes. This has caused an upsurge in new opposition parties. At last count there are expected to be 3 parties with an anti-islam platform at the next election. The LNP have only themselves to blame. Their attitudes to the islam problem are last century and completely out of touch with the electorate.

You all have this thing wrong. When there are cool/cold conditions, that's just an aberration, or part of a cycle, but when it warms up, then that is REAL climate change. Dr Tim the environmentalist, self styled because he's really a mammalogist, should be hiding his head, but he won't be. he'll be out there spruiking his boogy woogy, hand on heart, saying "I hope I'm wrong about all this". Remember the forecasts, there will be wars over water in Australia, the dams will never be full again, any rain that falls will immediately evaporate because the ground will be superheated....and on it goes. The the company in which he holds significant shares, gifted $90 MILLION by labor, to generate power through hot rock technology was washed out by record rains. You're a joke Tim.

At least Jacqie is funny, and trying to get better pay for defence force personnel.

Warm is good Freezing is deadly

I am pissed off . The ABC showing the chat rooms from PP and my avatar was not there

I only joking . I just saw her on 7.30 putting obumma in his place. She is in New York sorting something out
