All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

Warming causes epic reef die-off: expert

Case Smit reply

 to the Sunshine Coast Daily that was published on 2 December – see below.

The burning of fossil fuels has caused the largest die-off of coral ever recorded on the Great Barrier Reef, Australian scientists say.

Two thirds of all coral in the northern third of the reef is dead after a mass bleaching event earlier this year, new dive surveys show.

Leading reef expert Professor Terry Hughes says warmer waters caused by man-induced climate change have cooked corals in the north, which had been the most pristine part of the World Heritage-listed ecosystem.

The worst-hit stretch is from Port Douglas north, where 67 per cent of shallow-water corals have died in the past eight to nine months.

At Lizard Island, north of Cooktown, 100 per cent of corals are dead.

The central and southern stretches of the reef fared far better, because the water didn't get as hot

France to drop carbon tax plan

Source: GWPF
It appears to be all crumbling for the elites:
  • Brexit against their wishes;
  • The Paris agreement;
  • Trump wins popular vote in US;     and now
  • France to drop carbon tax plan.

The French government is set to drop plans to introduce a carbon tax, French financial daily Les Echos said on Thursday. 
The newspaper, quoting several sources, said the socialist government will not include the carbon tax in a draft 2016 budget update currently being discussed. 
Environment Minister Segolene Royal had said in May that France would unilaterally introduce a carbon price floor of about 30 euros ($33) a tonne with a view to kickstart broader European action to cut emissions and drive forward the December 2015 United Nations-led international climate accord.
Meanwhile, Roger Helmer (@RogerHelmerMEP) has posted on his blog



I was recently discussing Lysenko with a friend (as you do), and naturally, we turned to Wikipedia to clarify a point.  And I came across a quote that hit me between the eyes (figuratively speaking);
“The term Lysenkoism can also be used metaphorically to describe the manipulation or distortion of the scientific process as a way to reach a predetermined conclusion as dictated by an ideological bias, often related to social or political objectives”.
Dear Reader, you’re way ahead of me.  Yes, of course, I was struck immediately by the read-across to climate science.  The parallels are remarkable. (Read more)

Roger Helmer continued by comparing Lysenkoism to 
the parallels with climate theory:
Lysenkoism was restricted to the USSR.  And it was imposed by a totalitarian régime that could, and did, shoot dissenters.  Climate alarmism, on the other hand is broadly speaking global (even if some countries merely pay lip-service to the orthodoxy).  It is imposed not by a violent autocracy, but by an intolerant and often vindictive establishment – scientific, media and political.  It threatens not imprisonment and murder, but the destruction of careers.  Scientists who dare to challenge the prevailing view are denied tenure, and publication, and perhaps worst of all, grant funding.

The pushers of so-called “renewable energy” lie.


Terry McCrann, writing for the Herald Sun, reveals the truth about renewable energy:

The experts lie about renewable energy

THE first and most important thing to understand about global warming true believers and the pushers of so-called “renewable energy” is that they lie.
 They lie effortlessly, seamlessly, continuously and without the slightest sense of shame. They lie deliberately and carelessly and casually, and even when they don’t realise they are lying. They lie without the slightest sense of self-awareness and with all the pomposity of stupidity aforethought.

Terry says that the International Energy Agency (IEA) used to be "a sober international agency, comprised of real energy experts and built on old-fashioned expertise."

However, as Terry says, they '
succumbed to the “greatest moral challenge of our time” more accurately known as Global Warmism. Kool-Aid became the house beverage not of choice but of mandatory consumption.'

And speaking of consumption, they 'claimed' that

“Renewables have surpassed coal last year to become the largest source of installed power capacity in the world.”

It is a claim so utterly ludicrous, so instantaneously false, that in any other context it would be stunning and a generator of endless ridicule.

It’s tantamount to claiming electricity-powered cars have overtaken petrol-driven ones on the world’s roads. 




Invitation to Climate Hustle Screenings in Sydney, NSW

Scorching temperatures. Melting ice caps. Killer hurricanes and tornadoes. Disappearing polar bears. The end of civilization as we know it! Are emissions from our cars, factories, and farms causing catastrophic climate change? Is there a genuine scientific consensus? Or is man-made “global warming” an overheated environmental con job being used to push for increased government regulations and a new “Green” energy agenda?

CLIMATE HUSTLE answers these questions, and many, many more. Produced by CFACT and CDR Communications in the one-of-a-kind entertaining and informative style that has made CFACT’s award-winning ClimateDepot.com one of the world’s most sought after sources for reliable, hard-to-find facts about climate issues, this groundbreaking film tears the cover off of global warming hype, and exposes the myths and exaggerations of this multi-billion dollar issue.

CLIMATE HUSTLE, hosted by award-winning investigative journalist Marc Morano, reveals the history of climate scares including global cooling, debunks outrageous claims about temperatures, extreme weather, and the so-called “consensus;” exposes the increasingly shrill calls to “act immediately before it’s too late,” and in perhaps the film’s most important section, profiles key scientists who used to believe in climate alarm but have since converted to skepticism.

Temperatures: Who do you believe? RSS or GISS?


From 1979 to 2001, the graphs for global temperature from the RSS satellite data and the NASA:GISS data are rising at the same rate.

However, from 2001, RSS data show temperatures have fallen. GISS's massaged data shows temperatures are still rising.

And of course, the alarmists will, surprise - surprise, say that 2017 is



the hottest year evah!

CO2: Is it polluting; OR, is it Greening atmosphere?

Donald Trump's New Head of the EPA, Myron Ebell, sent an email containing this:


Projected on to the EPA building last night. 


Professor Tim Ball addressed this with:
I have never heard Myron deny climate or climate change.If they make such charges they should provide evidence. If they can't then they should be prosecuted for false statements.

SO; Who are the TRUE DENIERS?

The Deluded who have been indoctrinated for the last 20+ years?

Or the citizens who believe that CO2 is greening the atmosphere?

AND - WHO WERE THE CLOWNS -

who projected this stupidity?
