It would seem most of us now accept the reality of climate change. In a recent Australian Government-funded research project, some 75% of those surveyed said they believed in climate change. We accept that the authorities have enough evidence to support their claims. But does that make them correct? Some two years ago at the UN's Copenhagen conference on climate change, thousands of poiticians and vested interest groups met to issue a warning, that unless we act now it would be too late :- oceans would rise with devastating consequences. Rather ironically, it was also estimated that the delegates... (more)
While I recognize that my articles here have a limited readership, and that many recoil in horror after reading some of my rants, I wanted to vent one more time (not a gas attack!) before I abandon my politics soapbox in favor of subtle author’s messages designed to sell more of my books. So, rather than a rave about some specific heinous event in the world, I thought it might be more productive to stimulate some of your own thinking. Here is a potpourri of topics that quickly come to mind:Syrian rebels kill Russian General caught advising the incumbent government on how to... (more)
Global warming is real and humans are causing it. That greenhouse gas emissions are contributing to climate change is as accepted among mainstream scientists as the earth revolving around the sun. A recently published story on climate change denial in Australian current affairs magazine The Monthly cites a survey that found 97.4 percent of climate scientists agree that "human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures."But what about the few scientists still skeptical of climate change? They are starting to come around as evidenced by the highly publicized... (more)
...Only evil people are wealthy and they will be punished. One race is superior to another. Everything will be okay, it’s not really dangerous. You can’t cure diseases with the power of the mind. Your lot in life is the luck of the draw, live with it. We don’t have anything to do with climate change. Species die off all of the time. This is just a normal cycle. We’re too big to fail. Buy this and save. Don’t tax the rich, it will hurt the economy. Drill baby, drill. All of these viruses have been so toxic; most in the world feel helpless. And yet, for thousands of years, the...

...and a reversion to a non-optimal tribalized world. That tribalism is itself a growing face of most cultures around the globe at present may be only a harbinger of what is to come.
Numerous questions emerge from this scenario, not the least of which is, are we too late? Global climate change, as much as it is still being debated (a debate of dubious motivations,) may indeed be the final determinant of where this ship someday arrives, if it arrives at all. Nature, as it is said, always bats last. We can see the battle between those who say we must act now, and those who still... (more)
I’ve always known that the politics espoused by Green parties were fraudulent, that they advance programmes which would require not just deindustrialisation but a major winnowing of the population. They would require, in other words, some form of democide. Oh, not them and their tofu-eating set, just the ‘others’, the outsiders, the unnecessary people. It really is time that we put the whole of the wretched Green movement under closer scrutiny, time we exposed the hypocrisy and the lies.
Matt Ridley has made an excellent start in an article published by the Spectator earlier this year.... (more)
...States produces about 400 million tons. About 120 million tons of that is used to make care ethanol. The food crisis in 2008 was made up for with the record harvest. In order to stop the food rates from going up drastically, a crop even better than that may have to happen in 2011.
Huge food problems might occur soon. It could very easily occur with some kind of poor harvest. Record shows 2010 to be the warmest ever. This is throughout the globe. The temperature ranges rose, which hurt the land. It got too dry. Warmer oceans unleashed water vapors, flooding... (more)
Smart Meters are crucial to fighting climate change because they are the first step in implementing the Smart Grid, which promises to make it easier for households to become more energy efficient and also integrate clean energy sources into their residential electricity system.
That is why it is a relief that, unlike cell phones, there is no cause for concern with the radiofrequency (RF) radiation of Smart Meters. That’s because the wireless devices produce an infrequent and incredibly weak RF field, according to scientists interviewed by BrooWaha. Essentially they are computers that... (more)
It was a few years ago that scientists predicted that global warming will lead to increased storms, blizzards, and drastic cooling of some areas. So the recent blizzards in the US are of no surprise to these scientists.
However, it seems that the name ‘Global Warming’ is quite misleading, because every time someone experiences a cold day, they question if global warming is really happening. What global warming means is an overall heating of the planet that will cause massive disruptions to local climate patterns: heat waves, draughts, cyclones and blizzards are all part of the forecast....

...so global warming is a myth. Never mind that the people who actually study the subject (as opposed to those who know what they think before any information is provided) have predicted larger, more powerful snowstorms (and hurricanes and tornadoes) as a direct consequence of human-assisted climate change, and never mind that their predictions made many years ago have been borne out.
Never mind, also, that a cursory look at the issue will tell you that "global warming" is an inapt way to refer to what is going on, because it leads the Know Nothings to think it implies that everyplace... (more)
