NO, THE WORLD IS NOT RUNNING OUT OF FORESTS

September 16, 2019, 2:18 pm

Alexander C. R. Hammond posts at humanprogress.org: "The world’s richest regions, such as North America and Europe, are not only increasing their forest area. They have more forests than they did prior to industrialization. The United Kingdom, for example, has more than tripled its forest area since 1919. The UK will soon reach forest levels equal to those registered in the Domesday Book, almost a thousand years ago."

"The hysteria surrounding the concept of 'global warming' will fade over the years. People will see that the apocalyptic forecasts are not coming true. Today there is no fingerprint attesting that carbon dioxide emission causes a rise in temperature. A Grad missile that falls in Sderot should be more cause for concern."  Professor Nir Shaviv, Hebrew University, Israel.

This lengthy but well-researched thesis by New Zealand researcher Barbara McKenzie recounts in detail how the origin of what is today's faux climate hysteria was hatched by a small, rich cabal, who wanted to rule the world and restrict human population.

Pat Frank posts at WattsUpWithThat: "In short, climate models cannot predict future global air temperatures; not for one year and not for 100 years. Climate model air temperature projections are physically meaningless. They say nothing at all about the impact of CO₂ emissions, if any, on global air temperatures."

The Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), Petteri Taalas, says that the alarmist narrative on climate change has gone off the rails and criticised the news media for provoking unjustified anxiety. Speaking to Finland’s financial newspaper Talouselämä (“The Journal”) on 6 September 2019, Petteri Taalas called for cooler heads to prevail, saying that he does not accept arguments that the end of the world is at hand: "It is not going to be the end of the world. The world is just becoming more challenging. In parts of the globe living conditions are becoming worse, but people have survived in harsh conditions."

Dr Benny Peiser, GWPF says Taalas statement is "unprecedented":

DIRTY ENERGY WILL SAVE THE PLANET

"Yes, sunshine and wind are obviously clean but the turning either of those into electricity is anything but a clean, harmless process. The Greens, here, stomp on any suggestion of mineral extraction, but their brave new world requires massive increases in mining of metals and rare-earth minerals. This comes with ecological and social consequences. Based upon a 2017 World Bank report, to get to the zero-carbon nirvana would require building enough solar and wind plants to generate 14 TW of electricity by 2050." Columnist posts at New Zealand BFD blog

"Large but previously unrecognized uncertainties must therefore exist in all the past and present air temperature projections and hindcasts of even advanced climate models. The unavoidable conclusion is that an anthropogenic air temperature signal cannot have been, nor presently can be, evidenced in climate observables." Patrick Frank posts at Frontiers in Science.

"If substantiated, this research blows the man-made global warming theory (anthropogenic forcing) right out of the water. This is huge. The effect for us is huge. We can abandon the politically and financially motivated Paris Accord and put the man-made climate change myth where it belongs – in the fairy tale section of school libraries. Solar variability is the knife through the heart of man-made global warming." LINK

From New Zealand comes a brilliant poetical put-down of the"global warming". Well known NZ iconoclast, John Ansell has a brilliant put-down of the scam and its origins. (Note: the reference 'Go to Vic to watch ‘debate’ refers to Victoria University of Wellington, home of many of New Zealad's climate hysteria fomenters.

Ethan Huff posts at Natural News: "For more than 60 years, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has known that the changes occurring to planetary weather patterns are completely natural and normal. But the space agency, for whatever reason, has chosen to let the man-made global warming hoax persist and spread, to the detriment of human freedom.

"Solar energy can do a few useful things. It can power a radio in an off-grid location. But it can’t support our day-to-day life. The sun’s incoming energy is extremely dilute, requiring panels spread over vast swathes of land to absorb it, thus pushing out forests and harming biodiversity. The 648 MW Kamuthi solar plant in Tamil Nadu covers ten square kilometres. A tenth of that land would have been sufficient for a larger capacity nuclear facility." Indian political leader Sanjeev Sahblok writes in the Times of India. (A Pigovian tax is a tax on any market activity that generates externalities - costs not included in the market price).

Anthony Watts has just announced on his blog WUWT this message from Canadian climatologist Dr Tim Ball: "Michael Mann’s case against me was dismissed this morning by the BC Supreme Court and they awarded me [court] costs, Tim Ball." Watts adds: "This is a developing story, I’ll add more as we know more.". And when that "more" arrives we'll post it here.

Duvat (2018) recently pointed out that over the past decades, the atoll islands of the Pacific (and Indian) Ocean exhibited no sign of drowning because of sea-level rise. The data, that covers 30 atolls including 709 islands, reveal that no atoll lost land area, 88.6% of islands were either stable or increased in area, and only 11.4% of islands contracted. In this paper Albert Parker and Clifford Ollier explain more in detail about the Pacific Islands.

Former Canadian Provincial Minister James Matkin, in this 148-page paper, begins by describing claims of a 97% "consensus" in favour of climate alarmism as "Bunk. There is no such consensus. In fact there was a serious divide between the IPCC scientists and the UN on the science of human caused climate change. ...This 97% meme gets far too much attention when the real issue is why have leaders like Al Gore lied about the support of the 2000 scientists employed in the IPCC Working Group failure to ‘detect’ evidence of human caused warming."

THE HOAX OF OCEAN 'ACIDIFICATION'

August 26, 2019, 4:03 pm

Emeritus Professor Clifford Ollier writes at QUAESTIONES GEOGRAPHICAE: "The oceans are not acid, never have been in geological history, and cannot become acid in the future. Changes in atmospheric CO2 cannot produce an acid ocean. Marine life depends on CO2, and some plants and animals fix it as limestone. Over geological time enormous amounts of CO2 have been sequestered by living things, and today there is far more CO2 in limestones than in the atmosphere or ocean. Carbon dioxide in seawater does not dissolve coral reefs, but is essential to their survival."

"We know there is simply no basis for climate alarm. All 'scientific' predictions have failed, life has survived happily with much higher CO2 in the past, the medieval warming period a thousand years ago was much warmer than today, the small temperature variations of the 20th century are easily explained by natural causes, and the IPCC reports confirm that there is no increase in extreme weather events and no economic harm from CO2. And yet the hysteria is increasing by the day." Sanjeev Sahblok, leader of the Swarna Bharat Party writes in The Times of India. (Note: slight error about the middle when he incorrectly names Maurice Strong as "Michael")

Bjorn Lomborg writes for "The Australian": "The risk is that outsized fear will take us down the wrong path in tackling global warming. Concerned activists want the world to abandon fossil fuels as quickly as possible. But it will mean slowing the growth that has lifted billions out of poverty and transformed the planet. That has a real cost."

  1. Acclaimed by Time Magazine as a "Hero of the Environment", American writer Michael Shellenberg posts at Forbes: "Celebrities, whether from the world of entertainment or politics, moralize about the need to change individual consumption when they should be moralizing about the need to change collective energy production." Later, he adds: "It is hard to imagine a climate cause that needs celebrity support more than nuclear energy."

Dr Jay Lehr and Tom Harris post at www.americaoutloud.com: "The climate crusade, promoting a world-wide delusion for which there exists not a shred of physical evidence, is again using children. These children are being used as ‘human shields’ for the evil doers of our day. Today’s crusade is built on fear and brainwashing children, sending them to the front with protest signs."

Professor Larry Bell posts at "Newsmax": "A petition being submitted by hundreds of independent climate scientists and professionals from numerous countries to heads of the European Council, Commission and Parliament declares 'There is No Climate Emergency.'....The petition concludes by recommending the recognition of clear difference in policies addressing the Earth’s environment through good stewardship versus Earth’s climate, the latter of which "is largely caused by a complex combination of natural phenomena we cannot control."
