"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 ten 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"

The Irrelevant Climate Change 'Consensus'

 American Thinker

Even the Guardian -- typically a stalwart supporter of climate activism -- ran a headline stating: “The claim of a 97% consensus on global warming does not stand up.”

After a thorough analysis, more than 100 published articles shredded the study’s faulty methodology and completely rejected its postulated consensus level of 97 percent.

Yet, Cook’s baseless study was still used as the inspiration for today’s release from Cornell -- which, unsurprisingly, is similarly flawed. Regarding the researchers’ methodological approach, the article’s press release states, “In the study, the researchers began by examining a random sample of 3,000 studies from the dataset of 88,125 English-language climate papers published between 2012 and 2020.”

There are many issues with this approach, the primary concern being selection bias. The authors arbitrarily decide to look at just an eight-year range of climate papers, neglecting to examine the large number of papers published before 2012. This approach, therefore, conveniently “forgets” to incorporate the significant sample of climate skeptical papers written in response to the then-nascent concept of global warming in the 1970s.

They go on to say “case closed” even as the glaring bias of pre-selection ensures many skeptical papers from the 1970s, when global warming first appeared on the radar of science, to today, were excluded from the study."

 

South Pole’s Winter Weather Record

 WUWT

"...As for the second part, global warming took a long winter vacation, at least in Antarctica. The Antarctic interior recorded its coldest April-to-September this year since records began in 1957. According to the US National Snow and Ice Data Centre (NSIDC), the average temperature at the US Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station was minus 60.9ºC for the six months. It was also the station’s second coldest winter (June, July and August) on record, with an average seasonal temperature of minus 62.9ºC. This was an extraordinary 3.4ºC below the long-term average (1881-2010) for winter.

Antarctic sea ice extent also was above average for several months.  In late August it was the fifth highest in the 43-year satellite record. The maximum observed on September 1 was 18.75 million square kilometres (7.24 million square miles, over twice the size of Australia) and the second-earliest seasonal maximum in the satellite record.

Ironically, it was “relatively cool” near the North Pole last summer, compared to recent years, which allowed September’s ice extent to be the highest since 2014."

 

'They need to breed less': the darkness of climate zealotry

 American Thinker

"....a United Nations climate conference that gets underway this month at Glasgow.  The annual conference seldom addresses third-world energy poverty, which deprives billions of people of basic needs like clean water, lights, and modern medical care.  Many of these people are subjected to indoor pollution from cooking and heating with wood and animal dung while bureaucrats and politicians preach the banning of the very fossil fuels necessary to alleviate their suffering.   .......

Having noted the cultural slight, I return to the lack of concern for energy poverty in developing countries as the larger issue.  It is the religious fervor of the climate-alarmist cult driving a misanthropic view that would deny people basic needs — even life itself — to achieve the fantasy of a carbon-free economy.  All to purportedly avert a fabricated climate crisis.

If this disregard for our very humanity goes unchallenged, we could be in for some dark times indeed.  Watch COP26 at Glasgow for trends."

Global Warming Is Actually Sparing Lives …Cold Kills 17 Times More Than Heat, According To Lancet!

 NoTricksZone

Here, Reichmuth cites researcher Roland Rau at the Institute of Sociology and Demography at the University of Rostock in Germany, He told German n-tv television: “When it’s cold, the risk of both respiratory infections and cardiovascular disease increases. You have a 50 percent higher risk of dying from a respiratory disease in winter than in summer.”

Australian Media Finally Calls Out Davos "Great Reset" Agenda

 ZeroHedge

Bernardi cites the fact that coordinated government shutdown policies (not COVID) have brought down fuel consumption and canceled international travel and bankrupted scores of airlines and travel firms already.

In addition, governments are using the ‘pandemic’ to permanently curtail civil liberties and freedom of movement and assembly.

“Why do you think the Australian Greens have been so quiet these past months … it’s because their policy agenda is coming to life?” he asked.

“After decades of peddling climate change lies and propaganda to force government by the elites, the socialists have used a media induced hysteria over public health as their latest weapon of economic destruction.”

The end game of creating to illusion of a global pandemic emergency is to rapidly usher-in the introduction of a ‘Green New Deal‘ policy – where billionaires seek to restructure our capitalist system into a new ‘green economy’ – promising equality and “climate justice” along the way.

He also highlights the fact that many of the same scientists and institutions involved in the fraudulent over-the-top modelling of COVID deaths – are also involved in IPCC computer modeled projections of supposed future climate change.

 

Socialists are using 'hysteria over COVID as a weapon of economic destruction'

 

SkyNewsAustralia 

Sky News contributor Cory Bernardi says the panic surrounding the health pandemic is being used as a weapon by socialists wanting to bring about economic destruction to usher in the introduction of the Green New Deal. “There is something unusual about the continuing pandemic panic,” Mr Bernardi said. “Medical experts now acknowledge that lockdowns don't work, they say that treatment with Hydroxychloroquine and zinc does work and that government responses globally have led to a massive destruction of wealth, wellbeing and work. “Now none of that makes any sense until you open your mind to consider if there is another agenda at work.” Mr Bernardi said behind the COVID-19 pandemic hysteria was an agenda to bring about social and economic change. Klaus Schwab, founder and Chairman of the World Economic Forum, said “COVID 19 cases have shown us that our old systems are not fit anymore for the 21st century, it has laid bare a fundamental lack of social cohesion, fairness, inclusion and equality. “Now is the historical moment of time not only to fight the … virus but to shape the system ... for the post-corona era,” Mr Schwab said. "(Mr Schwab) admits that COVID is the new excuse to usher in the Green New Deal that climate alarmists, profiteers and big government have been pushing for years," Mr Bernardi said. “Think about it, the global response to COVID has been a green socialist's dream." Mr Bernardi said the pandemic brought about a reduction in the use of fossil fuel, caused next to no international travel, ensured welfare for all, saw civil liberties curtailed and has seen the government run by bureaucrats. “Why do you think the Australian Greens have been so quiet these past months ... it’s because their policy agenda is coming to life,” he said. “After decades of peddling climate change lies and propaganda to force government by the elites, the socialists have used a media induced hysteria over public health as their latest weapon of economic destruction.”

Global warming ‘craziness’ is a ‘huge problem’: Bolt

 SkyNewsAustralia

Sky News host Andrew Bolt says the craziness about global warming, based on dodgy modelling and wild predictions is a huge cultural and economic problem. “it’s this craziness about global warming, it’s like the craziness really about this virus as well,” Mr Bolt said. “The way you’ve got a scare that’s based on dodgy modelling, wild predictions of catastrophes that don’t actually come and a one-sided media fear campaign where the truth doesn’t seem to matter. “We have got a huge problem; a cultural problem and an economic one.” (Video)

Did Global Warming Play A Significant Role In The Recent US Northwest Wildfires?

 ZeroHedge

A number of groups and individuals are claiming that the recent major wildfires in the Pacific Northwest are predominantly or significantly the result of climate change produced by increasing greenhouse gases. In fact, many have called these conflagrations "climate fires." Did global warming (a.k.a. climate change) have a significant impact on the Northwest wildfires of the past few weeks? ......

The bottom line:  this summer was not one of significant drought or very unusual.  Until the September 7-8 fire initiation by the strong winds, the area encompassing fire was below normal in both Oregon and Washington.

Thus, considering observations and modeling, both strongly supporting each other, the major fire/smoke outbreak this month was the result of very, very unusually strong easterly winds, NOT global warming or climate change.

Those pushing the climate change narrative, including some politicians, activist groups and media are simply misinforming the public.

'Rogue' Chinese Virologist Joins Twitter, Publishes "Smoking Gun" Evidence COVID-19 Created In Lab

 ZeroHedge

On Saturday we reported that Dr. Li-Meng Yan - a Chinese virologist (MD, PhD) who fled the country, leaving her job at a prestigious Hong Kong university - appeared last week on British television where she claimed SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19, was created by Chinese scientists in a lab.

On Sunday, Li-Meng joined Twitter - and on Monday, just hours ago, she tweeted a link to a paper she co-authored with three other Chinese scientists titled:

A Century of Fire Suppression Is Why California Is in Flames

 

 Mother Jones

The devastating fires that hit Bouverie and a large swath of Northern California’s wine country in October killed 42 people and destroyed nearly 7,000 buildings. In California’s Sierra Nevada in recent years, megafires have burned at much greater severity than those forests ever saw in the past, killing trees across large landscapes and unleashing enormous quantities of carbon. The remedy, Berleman and many other scientists say, is to reintroduce fire to the landscape by allowing more natural fires to burn and setting controlled burns when weather conditions minimize the risk of a catastrophic blaze.

“We have 100 years of fire suppression that has led to this huge accumulation of fuel loads, just dead and downed debris from trees and plant material in our forests, and in our woodlands,” says Berleman. “As a result of that, our forests and woodlands are not healthy, and we’re getting more catastrophic fire behavior than we would otherwise.”

The 'green dream' of renewable energy is a 'mirage'

 SkyNewsAustralia

Sky news contributor Cory Bernardi says the green dream of a future of renewable energy is a mirage. His comments come after residents of California have been told by the lord mayor to turn off as many electric appliances as they can to ensure the power continues to work in the heat of summer. California has departed from traditional forms of energy such as gas and nuclear in favour of renewable energy. “Remember we were told, over and over again, that California was the model economy, it was going to be fantastic for the green dream?” Mr Bernardi told Sky News host Paul Murray. “What we’ve realised is that the green dream is a mirage. “That when hot days come and people want to use their electricity, it might not be there for them.”  Video HERE

'ABC forgets' documentary which ‘absolutely skewers the renewable energy industry’

SkyNewsAustralia
A new documentary produced by the “far green left” has in fact put the argument forward “that renewable energy is not clean, not green and not practical,” according to Sky News host Chris Kenny. Environmental documentary film, ‘The Planet of the Humans,' absolutely “skewers the renewable energy industry,” Mr Kenny said. “The film goes on to attack major corporations for their pretense, their virtue-signalling on renewable energy”. Mr Kenny said the stance taken in the documentary is “kinda strange” given the executive producer is Michael Moore, who is a “millionaire, leftist, academy award winning director”. Mr Kenny said, “why isn't the ABC talking about this, showing this, debating this?” “They usually love Mike Moore's films; they usually love to promote the political films of the green left”. “This one goes too far for them of course, it attacks renewables and it attacks climate alarmists that they regard as secular saints, like Al Gore”. He said the new film, “seems to present too many inconvenient truths” for even the ABC to report on.
