CARRYING CAPACITY AND POPULATION OVERSHOOT

“We are dealing with two opposing forces, the scientific power of food production and the biologic power of human reproduction. … There can be no permanent progress in the battle against hunger until the agencies that fight for increased food production and those that fight for population control unite in a common effort.” .These comments […]

LUNAR ENERGY THE HARNESSING OF OCEAN TIDES

LEAST RELIABLE, LEAST ECONOMICAL AND LEAST PREFERRED  The gravitational pull of the moon and sun along with the rotation of the earth cause the tides. In some places, tides cause water levels near the shore to vary up to 40 feet. People had harnessed this movement of water to operate grain mills more than a […]

WARMING LIKELY CAUSING SEVERE POLAR VORTEX

“The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment project allocations, and the power of money, is ever present and is gravely to be regarded”. “Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become […]

LESS POPULATION=LESS MEAT=LESS METHANE GAS

Livestock are responsible for 18 per cent of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, more than cars, planes and all other forms of transport put together. Burning fuel to produce fertiliser to grow feed, to produce meat and to transport it -and the deforestation and land clearing for grazing – produces 9 per cent […]

FROM DESERTS AND GLACIERS TO GRASSLANDS AND FORESTS The world has continued to get warmer since the Little Ice Age (about 1400-1700 AD), the period when they skated on the Thames River, and will likely continue to warm for another 200-300 years, in stops and starts, towards a max temp roughly matching the Medieval Warm […]

GREEN HILL SCHEME WOULD HAVE COST MILLIONS

The plan for Doncaster Hill to become a self-sustaining village with wind turbines and solar panels on apartment buildings could have increased the purchase price of apartments by as much as ten per cent with a zero impact on global warming had Manningham Council not scrapped the plan. Lord Monckton speedometer shows a 15 years […]

BOTTLED WATER SALES A TRIUMPH OVER REASON

They were marketing bottled water so they had to be very clever to the extent that it has now become a fashion accessory as much a beverage which is why Australians are spending over $500 million every year for a product they can buy a 1000 times cheaper from the cleanest water supplies in the […]

MEDIA INTEREST WANING ON WORLD WARMING

Media interest in global warming appears to have declined somewhat after it had peaked in 2009 when the UN Copenhagen Conference was held.  Except for a spike before and after the UN Paris conference in November, the graphs below show a declining number of news articles on the subject. The diminishing media interest appears to correlate […]

PUBLIC COOLING ON ANTHROPOGENIC WARMING

The latest comprehensive research conducted by the CSIRO indicates that most people believe global warming is actually happening but only 45.9% thought it was  human induced. The study also found there was an increase in the percentage of people that didn’t know or thought global warming wasn’t happening. Not the sort of data you would […]
