The Only Field Where all Concur is Full of Sheep….

H.L. Mencken :- “All professional politicians are dedicated wholeheartedly to waste and corruption. They are the enemies of every decent man.”

So, now, the UK Government’s chief scientific adviser John Beddington says it’s OK for me to claim the world is flat. Less than a year after he declared that cross-border conflicts and mass migration as people flee from climate change, all before 2030 by the way, were certain. This “scientist” now says “There is a fundamental uncertainty about climate change prediction that can’t be changed” and “I don’t think it’s healthy to dismiss proper scepticism”. So, I ask, what has changed to change his point of view on the settled science of climate change?

Oh yes, LOTS of the protagonists got caught with their hands in the till, cookie jar, nurse’s bra. I have tried to refrain from gloating over the climategate stuff. I have avoided taking pot-shots at the more obvious sitting ducks but this cannot pass without some questions.

The entire environmental movement has been hacked by agenda pushers. Would those who have fallen for the “CO2 caused the tiny warming at the end of last century” prevarication now become the most loudly vociferous in denouncing the climate fraternity as they are the most grievously wounded and monstrously deceived?

No, the people who have been happily and continuously vilifying anyone who questioned their dogma can only fall back on the precautionary principle. Do they not understand that to make progress it may be in the biosphere’s best interest for us to go about “business as usual” which, so far, has not come close to dragging the global temperature anywhere near even the least worst of the doom-laden predictions of a corrupt division of a corrupt organization or, for that matter, the global economy into convulsions, as the belief in the efficacy of models did to the banking fraternity’s playing fast and loose with everyone’s money.

Will they excuse the lies, fraud and obfuscation as “necessary evils” on the path to global emissions reduction, even if this would appear to be an utterly useless course both for humanity’s betterment and the very real greening of the planet that NASA has observed?

The people who support the CRU and the UN in these matters have shown a herd mentality of epic proportion. They have allowed a fictional threat to divert much needed funds, media focus and public attention away from real and pressing problems such as deforestation, overfishing, chemical pollution, water mismanagement and other truly egregious assaults on Mother Earth.

The supposed defenders of the environment, such as WWF, Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace have colluded with, nay empowered, this cabal of anti-progress, anti-science and anti-human liars. They and their supporters should now be the loudest of voices shouting for reinvestigation of the records, a new broom to sweep the self-seeking from their offices and a fresh look at the science.

Yet most of the betrayed have meekly rolled over, turned their blind eye and maintained their belief, for it is now very evident that that is all it is, a belief in the “thousands of papers” by “thousands of scientists” supported by “the majority of scientific institutions” that merely show the warming and have comprehensibly failed to provide a single jot of repeatable, real world evidence that humanity’s additional CO2 caused that very beneficial 0.7C increase in delta T over the last 30 years of the 20th century.

That, it has become increasingly clear, is the only question “the powers that be” ever intended to address. They will now use every compliant tentacle to show ocean acidification, methane, speed of release and other “virtual certainties” of our continued liberation of CO2 warrant further deep intrusion into individual lifestyles and more yet taxation to cure the problems they hype. But this time they will be a little more circumspect and will attempt to shut down the blogosphere that has been the sole organ that exposed them as loons prancing around without any clothes.

Is It Me, Or Is It Chilly In Here?

Isaac Asimov :-
“When people thought the Earth was flat, they were wrong. When people thought the Earth was spherical they were wrong. But if you think that thinking the Earth is spherical is just as wrong as thinking the Earth is flat, then your view is wronger than both of them put together.”

Yes it is going to get colder soon. But will it get cold enough fast enough to make a difference to the Gorons? I believe they will pervert the coming cold period something like this: “we can use this opportunity to mitigate the effect of the recent 40ppmv increase in the life giving gas before the next heating event” through taxation and control of course. The policy has inertia now and will be hard to turn around. They will use anything that comes their way. Al did not get that $300 million to preach solely to the choir.

There is a cold period coming. No ice age but we will enter a cooling period from around now and for about 60 years. 2010 may be a bit warmer than 2008, 2009 but then it will cool. The cold kills both plants and animals more quickly and over a wider area than the relatively benign “heating” we have recently “suffered”. Arrogant? Not if you see what I see. I have had to sign non-disclosure on what I have been shown but can assure anyone who is interested that this is a verifiable, repeatable and elegant system that has proven itself with precipitation, wind strength/landfall and temperature prediction and also in hindcast to the point of being a meter for historical climate, invasion and exodus, drought, icepack density and the rise and fall of civilizations etc.
To my mind the arrogance lies with the dismissive crowd who talk past papers like this:

because “it smacks of astrology” or due to other fears.

Our ancestors literally lived or died according to the efficacy of their observations, both of the weather and the cycles that allow its prediction including solar cycles. Aristotle, Theophrastus, Ptolemy, Brahe, Kepler, Newton, Howard, Saxby, Herschel, and Milankovitch studied and published on this.

Some modern players and their work:

John Nelson, working for RCA as their astronomer, found he could predict disruptions to radio using a similar system. Later working for NASA he achieved an 85% success rate for long range prediction of radio conditions:

All tantalizingly close to the system but, for various, sometimes multiple reasons, not precise enough to predict weather events. This has been remedied. But it will still get cold soon

1200ppmv CO2 would be “Wonderful”

Dr. Joanne Simpson :-
“We all know the frailty of models concerning the air-surface system. We only need to watch the weather forecasts.”

Plant respiration and photosynthesis is a refrigeration process and causes overall cooling. The single experimentally proven result of an increase in CO2 levels is increased plant growth – both in speed and size. The current 383ppvm CO2 is considered to be “dangerously low for plants on earth” and the world would be a more lush one if we could somehow get levels up to three times that(1200-1500 ppmv would be wonderful) The greatest gift the developed nations can give to the third world is free fertilizer in the form of higher CO2 levels.

The UN IPCC and all those scientists and politicians who claim to support the “computer models” is in the business of creating a new world currency, and policy, that they alone control. They use this power to prevent third world countries from ever becoming developed, they will tax the living daylights out of anyone who can afford it – and most of them won’t even notice and they definitely won’t stop using airplanes and SUVs – and leave unchecked India and China who are now the largest producers of plant food, sorry CO2 that vital ingredient for life on Earth NOT a pollutant.

As with so much in this brave new world black has become white and CO2 will be blamed for the coming cold century yet carbon is the most miraculous of elements and it being put in such a bad light should show us all which way  the wind blows. There is an insidious dark agenda at play and when the proof arrives, in the form of a solar cycle that freezes all our assets, that agenda will be revealed for all to see. The Sun is coming to our rescue but, unfortunately, those of us living north of the tropics will feel it’s bite. I only hope that those people who have been suckered by this veil of lies will put their righteous fury, upon realizing the truth, into a campaign to expose the inherent inequity of “peer review” and “consensus” and hold the IPCC and Al Gore accountable for the, already, massive damage they have done to economies and lives. It would be nice if Al gave his Nobel and Oscar back – along with using the 100,000,000 dollars he has “accumulated” in the last 8 (eight) years to undo some of the harm. He could dissolve the carbon credit companies he co-owns with the bankers also.
Hey if they can try to give me nightmares I can dream can’t I?
