Consultant geologist Dr Geoff Derrick was invited to present this talk to a conference held in Brisbane at the Pullman Hotel, 22-23 July 2019. The conference was organised and hosted by DANA, a New Zealand-based group of Forest Industry Advisors. The conference was titled “Innovations in the Australian Forest Industry Sector”, and featured 2 days of lectures and workshop discussion, followed by a half-day field trip to Woodchip export facilities at the Port of Brisbane.

Well-trained meteorologists with mountains of real data and massive computers cannot forecast the weather more than a few days ahead.
But make-believe academic “climatologists” using doctored data have created over 100 complicated computer models pretending to forecast global climate decades ahead.
NOT ONE model has produced a correct forecast for 25 years.
Yet we are prepared to trash our economy, inflate electricity costs and destroy heavy industry on the basis of these massaged models.
Only politicians and green dreamers could believe such nonsense.

It was in Lima, Peru that the United Nations (UN) travelling climate circus met in 2014 for COP 29 in its futile attempt to limit global carbon dioxide emissions which they blamed for (imaginary) global warming. Incredibly, national leaders were told that, by pledging to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions, global temperature could be limited to 2oC above the pre-industrial level.
The Lima conference was attended by more than 10,000 delegates, flying in their ministerial jets with another 1,000 observers joining them. Collectively, they created a “carbon footprint” larger than any of the many previous climate jamborees. It was reported that:
“Organisers rejected powering the village with solar panels on the grounds they were too unreliable, while efforts to hook the site up to the national grid – which is half-fed by renewable energy – failed due to technical problems.”
Electricity was supplied to the conference by diesel generators since the available renewable hydro-power couldn’t cope. Curiously, no electric or hybrid vehicles were used by attendees and bicycles were largely shunned due to dangerous driving conditions. Transport came from 300 diesel-powered cars.
THE CLIMATE ALARMIST’S SNOW JOB
Dr. John Happs
Many readers will remember the famous predictions about snowfalls from Dr David Viner when he was a senior research scientist at the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia. (Yes – that’s the same CRU where Dr Phil Jones withheld climate data requested under Freedom of Information laws.)
In March, 2000, Dr Viner confidently predicted that within a few years:
“Winter snowfall will become a very rare and exciting event.”
He added: “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.”
