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.

Tsunami of Evidence

Another full moon, another associated high tide, another solar cycle of gravitational stresses on the Earth’s crust, another major sub-sea earthquake in Indonesia, another volcanic eruption as Krakatoa poured another toxic mix of stuff into the sky – and another tsunami.

And for every surface volcano, there are dozens of sub-sea eruptions pouring heat and chemicals into the sea.

There is a strong correlation in this sequence of natural events. Continue reading “Tsunami of Evidence”

The War on Carbon Fuels

What fuels power the planet?

Watts Up With That has produced a useful readable summary of energy consumption trends 1965 – 2017. This is the period covering the noisy war on carbon fuels and the massive subsidies and hype about wind and solar energy.

Here are the trends in the country that uses the most energy in the world – CHINA: Continue reading “The War on Carbon Fuels”

What Supports Green Energy?

by Dr Matthew Fagan

Windmills are not in the State budget. They are not in the Federal budget. No foreign superpower is paying for them, no cartel of benign foreign investors is graciously fixing our previously adequate system. No.

We are paying for these windmills, without our knowledge. Billions a year. Even if they make no sense at all, no one cares – these uneconomic monsters are being subsidized to operate.

Look at the accounts of Hepburn Wind. Massively profitable and paid the world’s highest rates for electricity no one needs or wants. Still a single free windmill cannot be run at a profit so the owners are then then given another $800,000 cash a year just to exist. Continue reading “What Supports Green Energy?”

Electricity in Australia – Expensive, Unreliable and Getting Worse

How do electricity prices in Australia compare with USA?

“In a study by Alex Robson, released last week by the University of Sydney’s United States Studies Centre, comparisons are presented between energy costs in Australia and the US.

“The bottom line is that Australian households and businesses routinely pay two to three times as much as their US counterparts. Energy in the US also is more reliable and the pricing arrangements are more transparent.

“In the past decade, average power prices in Australia increased in real terms by about 70 per cent for households and businesses. In the US, real electricity prices for households stay­ed essentially flat; those for indus­trial users dropped by 10 per cent. When it comes to gas, the picture also is alarming. Australian manufacturers are being charged almost 50 per cent more in real terms than they were a decade ago, whereas manufacturers in the US are paying nearly two-thirds less. The average real price of gas also has fallen significantly for US households.”

As Robson sums up: “On electricity and gas price outcomes, the two economies have taken completely opposite paths.”
