"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." (Telegraph)

This blog has been tracking the 'Global Warming Scam' for over five 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"

Massive Greenland Fraud Is Rapidly Growing

Real Science
Last summer, University of California scientists made this hysterical claim about the Zachariae Isstrom glacier in northeast Greenland. ...It’s a great story, only problem is it is a complete fabrication. If anything, the glacier has grown since 2012. In 1940, scientists reported that glaciers in Northeast Greenland were receding very rapidly, and were “nearing a catastrophe.“ The glaciers are still there, there is no catastrophe, and the only thing that has changed is that the fraudsters at NASA have erased the 1940’s warmth in that region. If the glaciers were receding rapidly in 1940 and are not now, then it must have been warmer in 1940 than it is now. But logic and data are not a part of the criminal venture known as “climate science.”

Jet Stream Slows Down As It Gets Faster!!

Paul Homewood
 As a footnote to the New Scientist piece on Greenland meltdown, it is interesting to note that Jennifer Francis is pushing her widely derided theory that loss of Arctic ice is causing the jet stream to slow down – something she then uses to blame every bit of bad weather on.
Readers will no doubt recall that fellow junk scientist, Dr Paul Williams of Reading University, has been claiming that global warming is causing the jet stream to become stronger.
In climate science, it seems that you can make up whatever BS you want!
UK taxpayers are paying Mr Williams £91k a year for this nonsense."

Treasury Dept. Sitting On Investigation Into Solar Energy Fraud That’s ‘Two-And-A-Half Times Solyndra’

Daily Caller
“As you are aware, the Department recently indicated that applicants included ineligible costs or otherwise overstated the value of their solar energy investments by claiming approximately $1.3 billion in unwarranted cash grants,” Republican senators, led by Jeff Flake of Arizona and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, wrote in a letter to Treasury officials obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation."

Uncovering the subversion of scientific methods in pursuit of politics

Matt Ridley
Science, humanity’s greatest intellectual achievement, has always been vulnerable to infection by pseudoscience, which pretends to use the methods of science, but actually subverts them in pursuit of an obsession. Instead of evidence-based policymaking, pseudoscience specialises in policy-based evidence making. Today, this infection is spreading.  ......
Pseudoscience is bad enough when it infects astrologers, 9/11 truthers and crop-circle makers. But when its symptoms show up in mainstream bodies, such as the World Health Organisation, it’s time to be worried."

NASA “Homogenization” Infusing MORE Error? Adelaide Airport: Cooling Turns Into Warming

NoTricksZone
Hiding the cooling
It should be obvious to all that these adjustments to the raw temperature data are an attempt to hide the long-term cooling temperature trend at Adelaide. These changes to the temperature data begs us to examine all station data for similar changes. Is global warming real or just a  product of pencil, pen, and computer? "

Superstition Is Occurring With Alarming Frequency In The US

Real Science
The New York Times believes that a warm Christmas in New York proves global warming, and that “Record-breaking temperatures are occurring with alarming frequency in the United States.” Like everything else the New York Times writes about climate, this claim is complete nonsense. The frequency of maximum daily temperature records in the US peaked in the 1930’s – and have generally declined since then. For stations with history extending back to at least 1930, almost all US all-time temperature records occurred before 1940. Last Christmas was the warmest on record in New York, beating 1982 by two degrees. Valentines Day this year was the coldest on record in New York. Last year January through March was the coldest in New York City since 1934. This is a typical content-free climate article for the New York Times. The author obviously did no research and is just making stuff up. "

Systematic Error in Climate Measurements: The surface air temperature record

WUWT
There is no support in the temperature record for any emergency concerning climate. Except, perhaps an emergency in the apparent competence of AGW-consensus climate scientists."

‘Bill Nye Is Not A Real “Science Guy” (He Just Plays One On TV)

Climate Depot
'Nye who has been a vocal supporter of the climate change hypothesis isn’t more qualified to speak about climate science than any other non-scientist. He has a B.S. in mechanical engineering from Cornell University, and worked at Boeing in the mechanical engineering department. His entry into TV was not because of any science expertise but because he won a Steve Martin look-alike contest and began moonlight as a stand-up comic by night. Eventually he quit Boeing and became a comedy writer and performer on a sketch comedy television show in Seattle, Washington, called Almost Live!'

Hansen Repeating His Identical Lies From 30 Years Ago

Real Science
James Hansen says that we will have killer storms “stronger than any in modern times” and drowned cities in a few decades. He said the exact same thing 30 years ago. He predicted 50% stronger storms in 1988. He predicted that Manhattan would be underwater by now. Climate scientists have no idea what they are talking about and repeat the same lies decade after decade, but they do know that scaring people keeps the money coming in. "

Aussie Government Pledges $1 billion for Renewables

Aussie Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has just pledged to spend $1 billion of Australian taxpayer’s money, on renewable schemes which are struggling to raise their own finance on the open market. "

Satire Veep's Slogan Used By Australian PM  [SkyNews]

A "meaningless election slogan" created for the political comedy is used by Malcolm Turnbull in a number of interviews. .....
Veep writer Simon Blackwell was more severe: "In S4 of Veep we came up with the most meaningless election slogan we could think of. Now adopted by Australian PM," he tweeted."

The Sun in February 2016 and the latest heat records

WUWT
In February 2016 our sun’s activity was, as in almost every month of the current cycle, well below the average. The observed SSN (SunSpotNumber) was 57.2. The average of the cycles 1 … 23 for this month is 80.8, thus the observed activity was 71% of the average value in the current 24th cycle.  ... An El Nino in the end therefore generates a heat loss of the system earth. The current pulse of warming is partly a consequence of this natural process. The recent temperature records therefore are more related to the natural ENSO cycle than to global warming of probably about 0.01° C / year by the effect of moderate greenhouse gases, when allowing for a reduced CO2 climate sensitivity."

February Was The Stupidest Month Ever

Real Science
It takes a very special brand of stupid to believe that February is the hottest month. The hottest months on Earth are always July and August, because most of the land surface is in the northern hemisphere. Southern hemisphere summers have little effect on global atmospheric temperature, because most of the sun’s heat goes into the ocean. "

Hottest seasonally adjusted month EVER! Hyperbole runs wild.

JoNova(Australia)

Who needs a trend when you can have a hot month?

The news is all over the media — Feb 2016 was a record hottest ever month — and the Global Worriers  are saying “Meltdown“, “Planetary Crisis” and “Terrifying Milestone.”
But the Pause is still there. No matter what happens now, the world didn’t warm for 18 years, and that shows the models can’t predict a thing. (Unless they take solar factors into account, which they don’t).
One big El Nino didn’t fix the climate models. (They can’t predict ElNino’s either).
During the last whopper El Nino in 1997-98, CO2 levels were 365pp, They’re now 400ppm. For a lot of the last 10 years the Global Worriers have been claiming that we can’t start a pause with an El Nino. So why is OK to stop a Pause with one?  The heat wasn’t “global” but was an Arctic, Russian, Alaskan thing (see the dark red above and the top graph of the three below). It’s likely the heat has come out of the ocean. So an ocean current may have shifted. Or solar influences may have moved the jet streams…. There is no 'planetary emergency' in half the planet. "

Erasing The 100% Consensus

Real Science
In the 1960’s and 1970’s there was a 100% consensus that the Earth was cooling The National Academy of Sciences showed this in their 1975 report. The New York Times began reporting on this in the early 1960’s. This doesn’t fit the current needs of NASA, so they simply altered the data to make the cooling disappear. Over the last 15 years, NASA has doubled 1880-2000 warming, by replacing rural stations with UHI infected ones. Global warming has very little to do with science, and very much to do with politics."
