"Carbon (Dioxide) trading is now the fastest growing commodities market on earth.....And here’s the great thing about it. Unlike traditional commodities markets, which will eventually involve delivery to someone in physical form, the carbon (dioxide) market is based on lack of delivery of an invisible substance to no-one. Since the market revolves around creating carbon (dioxide) credits, or finding carbon (dioxide) reduction projects whose benefits can then be sold to those with a surplus of emissions, it is entirely intangible."

This blog has been tracking the 'Global Warming Scam' for over four years now. There are a very large number of articles being published in blogs and more in the MSM who are waking up to the fact the public refuse to be conned any more and are objecting to the 'green madness' of governments and the artificially high price of energy. This blog will now be concentrating on the major stories as we move to the pragmatic view of 'not if, but when' and how the situation is managed back to reality. To quote Professor Lindzen, "a lot of people are going to look pretty silly"

Gina McCarthy, EPA: carbon reduction is not about pollution – it’s about money

JoNova (Australia)
I don’t think Gina McCarthy had thought this through. McCarthy to the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee:
“And the great thing about this proposal is it really is an investment opportunity. This is not about pollution control. It’s about increased efficiency at our plants…It’s about investments in renewables and clean energy. It’s about investments in people’s ability to lower their electricity bills by getting good, clean, efficient appliances, homes, rental units,”
“This is an investment strategy that will really not just reduce carbon pollution but will position the United States to continue to grow economically in every state, based on their own design,” McCarthy added.

UN Pushing The Same Arctic Ice Scam For Almost 45 Years

Real Science
In 1971, the UN said that humans were melting polar ice and it could raise sea level by 7 meters. ......Time Magazine reported a 12% increase in Arctic ice in that same year."

Who’s really waging the ‘war on science’?

When it comes to attacking climate scientists, the alarmist Left has the market cornered .....
While proclaiming victimhood, they detest and vilify any experts who express doubts that we face an imminent climate Armageddon. They refuse to debate any such skeptics, or permit “nonbelievers” to participate in conferences where endless panels insist that every imaginable and imagined ecological problem is due to fossil fuels. They use hysteria and hyperbole to advance claims that slashing fossil fuel use and carbon dioxide emissions will enable us to control Earth’s climate – and that references to computer model predictions and “extreme weather events” justify skyrocketing energy costs, millions of lost jobs, and severe damage to people’s livelihoods, living standards, health and welfare.
Reality is vastly different from what these alarmist, environmentalist, academic, media and political elites attempt to convey."

Data Tampering With Sea Level

Real Science
Not only is satellite sea level rise much faster than tide gauges, but it is also much faster than older satellite sea level. Look how the University of Colorado has altered their data since 10 years ago. ......Sea level fraud in academia is just as big a problem as temperature fraud. Academics are rewarded for producing large numbers, not for being accurate."

Half the world is immune to “expert consensus” they don’t think scientists know what they are talking about

JoNova (Australia)
The four most skeptical nations were respectively, the US, Great Britain, Australia and Russia. A recent large and detailed poll of the UK with full demographic information showed 62% of the UK (or GB, as it is listed below) were skeptical and didn’t believe the recent floods in the UK were “man-made” through climate change. That detailed poll was more internally consistent than this international one. It also showed there was a higher proportion of skeptics among the well educated, and the largest contingent of believers was left in the unskilled worker category."

LISTEN NOW: Dr. John Christy rebuts climate alarmist talking points

The Hockey Schtick
Dr. John Christy's radio interview today debunks silly misconceptions including the bogus "97% consensus", that all climate change is man-made, that CO2 has a significant effect on climate, that climate models are reliable, that glacier melt is 'unprecedented' or man-made, that skeptics are against clean air, the mistaken beliefs of amateur climatologist Neil Degrasse Tyson, as well as other alarmist talking points. "

Watch what Climate Change SKEPTICS have to say about Climate Change

The Right Scoop
A great video from a gathering of Climate Change skeptics where some weighed in on why this idea of global warming or climate change is just nonsense."

New paper finds 23% of warming in Europe since 1980 due to clean air laws reducing sulfur dioxide

The Hockey Schtick
A paper published today in Geophysical Research Letters finds that clean air laws which greatly reduced sulfur dioxide emissions explain 81% of the "brightening" of sunshine and 23% of the surface warming in Europe since 1980. However, the authors note "this phenomenon is however hardly reproduced by global and regional climate models." 

According to the paper, 
"observed surface solar radiation, as well as land and sea surface temperature spatio-temporal variations over the Euro-Mediterranean region are only reproduced when simulations include the realistic aerosol variations" which the authors state are "however hardly reproduced by global and regional climate models"

‘Climate models not only significantly over-predict observed warming in the tropical troposphere, but they represent it in a fundamentally different way than is observed’

New Paper by McKitrick and Vogelsang comparing models and observations in the tropical troposphere "

Get rid of the rogue EPA and pointless “climate” policies. Governments can’t change the weather.

JoNova (Australia)
One day people will marvel that turn of the century governments thought they could control the climate, and needed to issue decrees about how much “change” in the weather they would allow.
From different continents come two articles with a similar theme. It’s time to dump the EPA and pointless “Climate” policies."

Should you trust NOAA claims about May and June records?


GIStemp – who needs Antarctic data or temps near ice.

E M Smith

In Conclusion

I’ve got some more on GIStemp, but that will wait for another posting. The big lumps are just that the source code is out of date, the data looks like it is missing a chunk from ‘down south’, and in 2011 the code was modified to avoid water temps from near ice. One can only wonder what possible rationalization could exist for that change. IMHO, it is totally unwarranted by any means. Might as well just start dropping any thermometers in cold places…"

97 percent of Australian renewables investment dries up without subsidies (so the ABC gives free adverts to the industry)

JoNova (Australia)
We’re told “clean” energy is a viable and cost effective. But cut the government subsidies, and 97 percent of investors vanish (in Australia it’s collapsed from $2.6b annually to $80m). The truth is that renewables are almost totally dependent on taxpayer largess. No wonder they lobby like their life depends on it. It does."

Germany’s Habitually AWOL Green Energy…Installed Wind/Solar Often Delivers Less Than 1% Of Rated Capacity!

In a nutshell, solar and wind power production are often AWOL and so conventional power systems (coal, gas, nuclear) always need to be on standby, ready to deliver on a minute’s notice."
