POPULATION GROWTH BEGAN WITH FOSSIL FUELS

AS GOES FOSSIL FUELS AS GOES HUMANITY To a first approximation, everything we’ve done since 1900, including agriculture, has been the result of our use of fossil fuels. The biophysical driver of fossil fuel energy transcends all political boundaries and philosophies. Fossil fuels have supplied 89% of the total primary energy used throughout the world […]

AGREEMENT ON PRE-INDUSTRIAL TEMPERATURES?

“ANTHROPOGENIC WARMING NOW ABOUT ONE DEGREE ABOVE PRE-INDUSTRIAL LEVELS” But what if global temperatures exceed the tipping point for one or two years and then drop away like they have in the past, just as they had during the thirty nine year cooling period that took place between 194o-1979, despite a rapid increase in GHG […]

WIND FARMS NEED MASSIVE SUBSIDIES TO SURVIVE

NEED FOSSIL FUELS FOR MANUFACTURE-TRANSPORT-INSTALLATION-MAINTENANCE “The fact that oil is a “finite” material is not a problem. Every material is finite. Life is all about taking the theoretically finite but practically limitless materials in nature and creatively turning them into useful resources”. “The fossil fuel industry does it, renewable–actually, the “unreliable”– energy industry doesn’t. End […]

WOOD HEATERS CONTRIBUTE TO CLIMATE CHANGE

“I LOVE THE SMELL OF BURNING WOOD ITS FRAGRANCE IS SO CLEAN AND GOOD” While it is nice and cozy to sit by a wood fire in the evening it is not much good for the health of our planet. The reality is it produces black carbon which has recently emerged as a major contributor […]

WEATHER STATIONS SHOW WORLD NOT WARMING

MAJORITY OF US STATES RECORDED HIGHEST TEMPERATURES IN THIRTIES OR EARLIER The US average hottest daily temperatures (AHDT) graph (right) shows 1905 as similar to the reading of 2015. The NOAA temperature graph shows a similar upward warming trend from 1910 to the late 1930’s but from then on a substantial warming trend in contrast […]

NOAA KEEPS INCREASING GLOBAL TEMPERATURES

“NOAA have increased global temperatures in every year from 2001 to 2017 by an average 0.06 C. Even the latest temperature anomaly for 2017 was raised from 0.84 C to 0.90 C. Your article on March 11th did not include the amended anomalies in the link below published in June this year”..June Hover.  NOAA National […]

HIGHEST WARMING RATE IN TWENTIETH CENTURY

According to NOAA the rate of global warming from 1880 to 2018 was only 0.70 degrees Celsius per century and would have been less had they not increased all the recorded temperatures from 2001 to 2013. Even with the changes to their temperature data, it was nowhere near the 1.36 degrees Celsius per century rate […]

NOAA RAISED ANNUAL TEMPERATURE ANOMALIES

Fifteen Hottest Years Prior To 2015 Were All Increased By An Average Of 0.05 C. “The ranks and temperature anomalies in the annual reports represent the values known at the time when each report was issued. The actual ranks will change as subsequent years are added to the dataset. The anomalies themselves may change slightly […]

GLOBAL WARMING ONLY DURING EL NINO PERIODS

THE WARMTH OR COLDNESS OF INDIVIDUAL YEARS IS INFLUENCED BY WHETHER THERE WAS AN EL NINO OR LA NINA EVENT OCCURRING IN THE EQUATORIAL PACIFIC OCEAN.  2001 14.34 C                                     2008 14.29 C              […]

AUSTRALIA WON’T SIGN UN MIGRATION COMPACT

“The Compact fails to adequately distinguish between people who enter Australia illegally and those who come to Australia the right way, particularly with respect to the provision of welfare and other benefits. It is inconsistent with the management of Australia’s strong and orderly migration program. It is not in Australia’s interest and will not add […]
