Why we Need Saltbush

By Maximilian Silverton (nom de plume)

Experience over many years working as a consultant with large funds management and global financial services firms have given me a useful education in gravy trains.

The world now resounds with dire warnings about what might happen if the ‘independent expert’ advice on Climate Change, from the UN especially, is not followed. We hear that the very survival of the planet is at stake. Well, maybe it is, or maybe not – but it does no harm to remember that we’ve heard this mournful song before.

Forty years ago, it was called the ‘Energy Crisis.’ More recently there was something called Peak Oil. Now the world is awash in hydrocarbons. No matter, the message always seems to be the same: the workers of the wicked West must be made to pay for their sins with billions of dollars in higher prices and new taxes.

Lyrics:

A Tax On The Air That We Breathe
By Dennis Boothby

When you wake every morning and you take your first breath
Just two things are certain that’s taxes and death
They want us to pay for those tree-hugging greens
That’s why they want tax on the air that we breathe.

Predictions from 16 Years ago Prove Correct

By Allan MacRae

The Global Warming Crisis? The War on Fossil Fuels?

Predictions from 16 Years ago prove correct.

It is seldom that the climate alarmists will agree to debate, and when they do they usually lose. Allan MacRae has submitted some 2002 conclusions from one rare debate.

In 2002, Astrophysicist Dr. Sallie Baliunas (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics), Paleoclimatologist Dr. Tim Patterson (Carleton University) and I co-authored a debate*1 with the Pembina Institute, sponsored by the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta (APEGA). Our assessment was subsequently excerpted in several professional journals, as well as The Globe and Mail and La Presse national newspapers.

In our rebuttal, we made eight statements, all of which are supported to date based on full-Earth-scale scientific observations. The following two statements are particularly significant: Continue reading “Predictions from 16 Years ago Prove Correct”

Climate Change Alarmism Is the World’s Leading Cause of Hot Gas

Even as anti-gas tax riots raged in France this week, naturalist David Attenborough warned a crowd at a United Nations climate change summit in Poland that “the collapse of our civilizations and the extinction of much of the natural world is on the horizon.”

U.N. General Assembly President Maria Espinosa told the media that “mankind” is “in danger of disappearing” if climate change is allowed to progress at its current rate.

Speakers, who flew in to swap doomsday stories, advocated radical changes to avoid this imminent environmental apocalypse. These days, “the point of no return” is almost always in view, yet always just out of reach.

Sorry, but by now, this rhetoric is familiar. Continue reading “Climate Change Alarmism Is the World’s Leading Cause of Hot Gas”

Why do Big Oil and Big Gas Support the War on Carbon Dioxide?

By Philip Mulholland

Put simply, because it both improves profits and also damages their main fossil fuel competitor, the coal mining industry. Coal is a solid fuel that can be dug out of the ground, loaded on to trucks, and transported to a power station for electricity generation. It is cheap to extract and easy to handle.

Gas however is a difficult material to handle, it must at all times be kept contained and transported using specially designed pipelines. For overseas export of natural gas, tankers with cryogenic liquid containers are required. If you have a lot of gas to sell, then climate change is good for your company’s bottom line in the following ways: Continue reading “Why do Big Oil and Big Gas Support the War on Carbon Dioxide?”

Climate Summit Language Reveals Real but Hidden Agenda

The goal isn’t saving Earth from climate disaster – it’s changing the world order.

By David Wojick, PhD

People complain all the time about UN jargon. But the technical language of the Katowice, Poland climate summit is actually very revealing. It is all about changing the world order.

Words exist because there is something important to talk about. Words also embody basic beliefs. In this context, it is very useful that the ever-green Climate Change News has published a Glossary of the 32 technical terms they think are most important in Katowice.

CO2 Emissions from Submarine Volcanic Activity and ‘Capture and Storage’ of CO2 in Carbonate Bearing Sediments

By Jacob Rebek
7 December 2018

CO2 emissions from volcanic activity are orders of magnitude greater than those caused by humans burning fossil fuels.

Submarine volcanic activity is orders of magnitude greater than subaerial volcanic activity but it was ‘out of sight and out of mind’ until results of studies of sea/ocean floor commenced in 1950’s. Geologists are aware of importance of submarine volcanic activity in global CO2 ‘supply and demand’ balance. However, climate scientists contributing to IPCC reports are still ignoring the importance of CO2 emissions from submarine volcanic activity.

Marie Tharp and Bruce Heezen created the first accurate map of the sea/ocean floor, a project they started in the 1950’s. This map was published in 1980, but is still relevant today. In addition to volcanic activity along mid-sea/oceanic ridges, there is volcanic activity elsewhere on sea/ocean floor (including islands if the volcanic cone is high enough) and along some of the margins of sea/oceans.
