Pope Schellnhuber Blocked! Coalition Partner FDP Liberal Democrats Stun German Climate Establishment!

Posted on May 2, 2013 by P Gosselin

The junior partner of Angela Merkel’s CDU/CSU conservative party, the business-friendly FDP Liberal Democrats under Philipp Rösler, has made an astonishing and bold move.

The Süddeutsche Zeitung here reports:

FDP blocks climate expert Schellnhuber

He is one of the world’s most famous climate scientists. But that does not seem to impress the liberal democrats at all: The Economics Ministry under Philipp Rösler refuses to reappoint physicist Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber as director of the Environmental Advisory Board. His colleagues are outraged and are now speculating on what’s behind it.”

David Suzuki: All Mining Must Stop

According to Canada’s most prominent environmentalist, the mining of gold, silver, copper and other minerals poses an unacceptable risk to the planet’s atmosphere.

Yesterday I observed that although the public is told that wind energy is clean and green, industrial wind turbines are made of steel – which depends on the mining of iron ore.

I quoted Andrea Jennetta, who points out that “pretty much everything we use in modern life – including every form of renewable energy you can think of – requires the extensive mining of raw materials from the earth.”

A correspondent has since drawn my attention to a section of David Suzuki’s 2002 book, titled Good News For a Change. I own a paper copy, but it’s also available in a reasonably-priced Kindle edition and is searchable online (click the Amazon image here).

Chapter 8 is titled Wrestling With Pluto: Cutting Toxins, Cleansing Air. The first three paragraphs are astonishing. The bolding has been inserted by me:. . .

US Tornado Update–April 2013

Posted on May 2, 2013 by Paul Homewood

On average, April is expected to be the third busiest month for tornadoes in the US, the busiest months being May and June. On a YTD basis, about a quarter of all tornadoes occur by the end of April. So the tornado count from NOAA at this stage of the year gives a first real glimpse at how the annual trend is developing.

It is therefore pleasing to be able to report that, so far, tornado numbers are extremely low.

Cook “the books” is wrong to slam Roy Spencer
By Christopher Monckton of Brenchley

Anyone who has met Roy Spencer knows him to be a careful, thoughtful, unpolemical scientist of formidable skill and knowledge. With John Christy he presents the monthly real-world data from the microwave sounding unit satellites that provide the least inaccurate global temperature record we have.

The satellites reveal the inconvenient truth that there has been no global warming for approaching two decades.

Beltane start of Summer and Snow…

Posted on 1 May, 2013 by Chiefio

Yes, it is “May Day”, also known as the Celtic / Druid holiday of Beltane that is the official start of Summer on the Druid calendar. A time to celebrate the winter left behind and the warmth that is here.

In a world of Global Warming, we ought be having “fond memories” of back in the olden days when we knew what snow was…

Instead, we’ve got active snowfall.

Reality Perpetually At Odds With Liberal Agenda

If any American still doubts that liberal ideology is built entirely upon a foundation of lies and fraud, the news of the past week should put the notion completely to rest. Major events, and in more specifically the disjointed and prejudicial manner in which those events have been covered, stand as proof that in the eyes of the liberal politicians and their media parakeets, “reporting” is not a matter of informing the people, but is instead an opportunity to indoctrinate them with a decidedly leftist worldview. Unfortunately for the left, when the facts become known, their empty fabrication quickly implodes.

Foremost in the minds of Americans was the April 15 terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon.

People hoping to enjoy a pleasurable outdoor spring event instead experienced unimaginable carnage and death. The nation is rightfully angered by the attacks, but it should also be outraged by the manner in which members of the press, ostensibly acting as guardians of an open and informed society, were busily and shamelessly striving to exploit the horrific event to the benefit of the liberal/Democrat agenda.

Geoscientist explains why alarmist claims of continued global warming are unscientific political propaganda

Posted on May 1, 2013 by THE HOCKEY SCHTICK

In a forlorn attempt to assure the public that the information it provides can be trusted, the government-appointed ACC states on its website:

“The Climate Commission was established to provide all Australians with an independent and reliable source of information about the science of climate change…”

Independent and reliable? Then why the following disclaimer:

“This website is not a substitute for independent professional advice and users should obtain any appropriate professional advice relevant to their particular circumstances.”

There are those who dismiss the ACC as little more than a mouthpiece for government propaganda to justify its carbon (dioxide) tax, but its website does provide one excellent piece of advice:

“The Commission recommends that users ….. carefully evaluate the accuracy, currency, completeness and relevance of the material on the website for their purposes.”

So let’s do just that.
