Arctic “Expert” Predicted Sea Ice Gone By Last Year

Arctic

Guido has unearthed a gem from the FT’s archive. Back in 2013 Peter Wadhams told the FT that Arctic sea ice would disappear in the summer of 2016 Wadhams, who is head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group at Cambridge, claimed that we would see “the Arctic death spital”, going on to state:

““It could even be this year or next year but not later than 2015 there won’t be any ice in the Arctic in the summer”.

Unfortunately for Peter, who describes himself as the leading authority on the Arctic sea ice, it didn’t disappear last summer, and is in fact in significantly better shape than when he made the prediction back in 2012. Last year the minimum Arctic sea ice extent was 4.41 million square kilometres, compared to 3.39 million square kilometres in 2012. How inconvenient…

Peter of course predicted in The Guardian that the collapse in sea ice would trigger a significant increase in global warming:

“As the sea ice retreats in summer the ocean warms up (to 7C in 2011) and this warms the seabed too. The continental shelves of the Arctic are composed of offshore permafrost, frozen sediment left over from the last ice age. As the water warms the permafrost melts and releases huge quantities of trapped methane, a very powerful greenhouse gas so this will give a big boost to global warming.”

Again such predictions were wide of the mark, with no such vast increases having occurred in global warming since. Yet again the science gets in the way of Wadham’s overblown predictions…

This isn’t the first time the Cambridge professor has made a particularly outlandish statement however, having previously claimed that three climate change scientists studying the ice caps were assassinated to prevent the their explosive research being revealed. Keep drinking the kool-aid professor. Maybe next year…

UNESCO Calls for Re-education of Teachers and Journalists

UN-Logo-Communist

A report released by UNESCO called Putting Climate Change Education into Practice has called for governments to introduce “teacher education programmes” and to “train” journalists so they are able to “report accurately and authoritatively on climate change related issues“. As a back up plan, governments have also be urged to allow “non-formal educators and facilitators of climate change education” to teach children. Propagandists in other words…

“Teacher education programmes should, therefore, provide designated curriculum spaces to enhance teachers’ and educators’ capacities to deliver accurate climate change information, integrate local content, and promote critical thinking about climate change mitigation and adaptation. Governments should also support pre-service, in-career and in-service, and professional development opportunities in order to build teacher capacity and promote greater awareness of climate change issues among educators. They should also offer support to non-formal educators and facilitators of climate change education…

Governments should support media organizations and associations in their efforts to disseminate clear messages and reliable information about climate change through print media, television and radio, and Internet-based channels of communication. Support should also be provided to journalism training programmes to ensure that future journalists will be able to report accurately and authoritatively on climate change related issues.”

The report also criticises the UK’s Department of Business, Innovation and Skills for valuing economic growth higher than “sustainability“. Onwards, till crimethink is eradicated..

London Assembly: Climate Change will Destroy our Economy

london-flood-470x353_tcm4-435192

The London Assembly’s crack “Economy Committee” have today released their hotly anticipated reportWeathering the Storm: The Impact of Climate Change on London’s Economy” and it makes for a cracking read. Stunning revelations in the report include:

  • Lots of small and medium sized businesses don’t have plans in place to deal with extreme weather conditions
  • Most FTSE 100 firms have no strategy in place to adapt to climate change
  • Lots of people still invest in fossil fuels

According to the Committee, this means London’s economy will be devastated by the coming “flooding, drought, heatwaves“. Unless of course companies kneecap themselves by buying in advise from the “adaptation sector“. This kind of hyperbolic eco-alarmism and scaremongering from the likes of the Green Party’s Jenny Jones is why London needs a mayor who will stand up to the anti-capitalists who use the cover of environmentalism to advance their extremist agenda… 

Jet Setting Green Leader Demands “Alternative to Aviation”

JET SET

No messing about from the leader of the Scottish Green Party, Patrick Harvie, in this thundering op-ed warning: “we need an alternative to aviation“.

Harvie says long haul flights mean “hundreds of millions of tonnes of additional greenhouse gas emissions” are being pumped into the atmosphere.

Apparently putting strict restrictions on flying wouldn’t affect normal people because “70 per cent of flights are taken by the wealthiest 15 per cent”.

Harvie might soon be experiencing some turbulence from his colleagues when they find out he recently crossed the Atlantic on a climate change “leadership program” junket:

“The costs of meals, travel and accommodation within the US, and occasional expenses, were met by the US Department of State Cultural Affairs Division to a total of $8,100”

Gaia asked Harvie if he made the trip by plane or boat, but alas a reply was not forthcoming. Plane stupid.

MPs Being Lobbied By Select Committee Candidates Beg: “Leaf Me Alone!”

Voting is underway for the various Commons select committee chairmanships that are up for grabs – and the excitement among MPs being lobbied for votes has reached fever pitch. Sorta.

Behold, the greatest piece of campaign literature Guido has seen yet, from Labour MP Barry Gardiner, who wants to be chair of the Environmental Audit Committee:

They’ll be re-leafed when it’s all over…

German Children Indoctrinated

german youth

In a remarkably tone-deaf piece piece, the Washington Post’s Catherine Rampell has written a glowing tribute to the German education system’s climate change indoctrination policy. Who wouldn’t want their kids to be learning about “sustainability” in English, French, Spanish, art, music, history, maths, biology, chemistry, physics and PE?

“Take Emmy-Noether-Schule, an 800-student secondary school in east Berlin I visited recently. Educators there consider climate change so pressing that they integrate it into just about every class you can think of (including, when the instructor is so inclined, Latin). About a quarter of the content in the 10th-grade English textbook, for example, is about threats to planet Earth. That means when kids learn to use the conditional mood in English, their grammar exercises rely on sentences like this: “If we don’t do something about global warming, more polar ice will start to melt.”

Likewise, in an 11th-grade geography class dedicated entirely to sustainability, students write poetry about klimawandel (climate change). My favorite couplet, from an ode by student Hannah Carsted: “The water level rises/ The fish are in a crisis.””

Sounds a little ominous…

BBC BIAS: Paris Climate Week Special

bbc green bias

Climate Week Paris is upon us and the BBC are going into overdrive. Environment analyst Roger Harrabin is leading the charge…

In an article today, Harrabin slavishly turns a comment by Unilever Chief executive Paul Polman into a slobbering 700 word quasi-editorial, unquestioningly repeating Polman’s assertion that Unilever has faced business costs that were €300m-to-€400 million higher than normal due to extreme weather.

Then, in an effort to remain fair and balanced, Harrabin informed readers that other business people don’t share Polman’s views with a classic oil-barons-own-politics smear.

“But for every CEO who makes promises in Paris this week, others will warn against a rush away from CO2. America’s fossil fuel giants, the Koch Brothers, are spending $900 million on political advertising to make their case.”

In fact the Koch’s aren’t spending $900 million on anything – they are part of a group of 300 donors who plan to spend that amount on next years presidential race.. as do the other side.

Green Party Terrorist’s Links to Natalie Bennett

ALF-TERRORIST

The Green Party are utilising the services of a twice convicted Animal Liberation Front terrorist to help them fight for the Wyre Forest constituency. The man listed on the Green Party website as Ronald Lee, the”Campaign Manager” for PPC Natalie McVey, is none other than Ronnie Lee, the founder of the Animal Liberation Front. The ALF were regarded by the FBI as a terrorist organisation…

Ronnie Lee is notorious for his view that there is an animal “holocaust” going on and that violence is necessary for it to be stopped.

Animal liberation is a fierce struggle that demands total commitment. There will be injuries and possibly deaths on both sides.”

Lee who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for ALF activities, has since distanced himself from the organisation telling an interviewer in 2010 that he disagrees with “the whole non-violent thing associated with the ALF” as he doesn’t “see anything morally wrong in using violence against animal abusers.”

ronnie lee bennett

As well as being listed as the contact for the Wyre Forest Green Party and being one of Natalie McVey’s signatories, Ronnie is the co-founder of the Green Party allied group Greens for Animal Protection which, worryingly considering Ronnie’s past, aims “to defend and improve the Green Party’s policies on animal protection.Nathalie Bennett is a supporter of Greens for Animal Protection…

Preston Council leader Peter Rankin explains rising anti-Semitism…

“You need to think why this anti-semitism is getting worse. It’s because of the actions of the IDF shelling schools and hospitals and killing and maiming thousands of men, women and children.”
