Climate Change Fuelled Mosquitoes Are Not Coming to Get You

mosquito balls

Two researchers from the Department of Health offshoot Public Health England published a review on the effects of climate change on vector-borne diseases and headline writers across the world have gone nuts. Apparently Britain is about to be overrun by swarms of malaria ridden mosquitoes.

A quick peruse through the report reveals that even if the researcher’s wild estimation of a 5ºC  increase in temperature by 2030 comes to pass, they still think “sustained transmission of the malaria parasite is still unlikely.”

Why is everyone making it so easy for the alarmist nutters?

UKIP Protesters Organised by Green Lobbyist

The man who tipped of the loony mob to the location of Nigel Farage and his family on Sunday was Chris Venables, an employee of Medact – a lobbying organisation that has been successful in convincing medical charities to sell off their investments in fossil fuels. Venables’ actions will come as an embarrassment to Medact, who work hard to present themselves as respectable charity made up of doctors and not an activist group made up of hard left green campaigners. Can they afford to keep such a liability on the payroll? 

Spiteful Green Candidate’s Non-Apology For Cancer Slur

She’s a real charmer! A textbook non-apology from disgraced Green candidate Jenny Ross, after hippy HQ told her to say sorry for her sick Farage cancer slur:

“I apologise sincerely for offending testicular cancer sufferers. I don’t apologise for offending UKIP, their racist scapegoating offends me.”

Moments later Jenny took out her spade and embarked on a bizarre politicisation of her remarks:

“If Kippers really care about cancer why are you pro fracking?”

Or perhaps they “care about cancer” because it nearly killed their leader. The Greens say they are not happy and an internal committee are looking into this latest development…

Anti-Fracking Eco-Loons’ Aerosol Protest

Over in Bristol North West, some very rude graffiti has been daubed on the constituency office of Tory MP Charlotte Leslie:

Charlotte tells Guido:

“I understand people are upset about fracking, but I’m not sure an aerosol is the best way to get a point across. For those who are upset, I’d simply ask them to come up with an energy source that does not come from an unstable, or hostile part of the world, that can meet the nation’s energy needs.”

What a bunch of aerosols…

Environmental Audit Committee Report is Total Clusterfrack

frack

The future of the UK’s fracking hopes hang in the balance today as MPs scrutinise the Infrastructure Bill including a proposed amendment  for a “moratorium on the hydraulic fracturing of shale gas deposits” as called for by the Environmental Audit Committee published last Friday. Coincidental timing.

shagging-snowmanTo say the EAC report on the environmental risks of fracking is unduly influenced by the loony green lobby would be somewhat of an understatement. The report balances an assurance from the Environment Agency “that the use of ‘hazardous substances’ for any activity, including hydraulic fracturing, would not be permitted where they would or might enter groundwater and cause pollution” with a counter-claim from ‘Frack Off Fife’ that: “Water’s natural ability to permeate rock means the contaminated waters will eventually find clean/natural/ground waters and thus, contaminate them“. Frack Off Fife appears to be nothing more than a small group of Scottish hippies with a  Facebook group.

The lack of hard evidence in the report is nothing short of astonishing. At one point it even counters Public Health England’s conclusion that the “currently available evidence indicates that the potential risks to public health from exposure to the emissions associated with shale gas extraction will be low” with a claim by Green Party member Philip Mitchell that he had “surveyed people” in Yorkshire and was concerned that there have been an increase in respiratory problems. The “surveys” weren’t submitted.

Perhaps most puzzling is EAC’s claim that “Extensive production of unconventional gas through fracking is inconsistent with the UK’s obligations under the Climate Change Act and its carbon budgets regime“, a claim so spurious that even even the lefty wonks at the IPCC disagree, stating last year that it was “quite clear that shale gas can be very consistent with low carbon development and decarbonisation“. Every scientific fact is countered by ideological hippy anecdotes.

 

Al Gore To End Global Warming

Al Gore has finally unveiled his plan to save the world from catastrophic climate change – he’s going to put on a Live Earth global concert. Again. The former US Vice President jetted into Davos to make the announcement that he will be hosting what he hopes to be the largest global campaign in history – a series of concerts taking place across seven continents on 18th June.

Gore’s last Live Earth  event in 2007 garnered the unfortunate moniker “Private Jets for Climate Change” after 150 performers flew a total of 222,623 miles to tell people to walk to work. He was joined on stage by Pharrell ‘Happy’ Williams and producer Kevin Wall. Williams – who does his bit for the planet as creative director of Bionic Yarn, a company that turns recycled plastic into clothes – will be also be acting as creative director of Live Earth and he has high hopes for the event.

“Instead of just having people perform, we literally are going to have humanity harmonise all at once.”

Kevin Wall said: “The power of music is unique, because it’s borderless, without language, Pharrell will use that power. When you combine music with a message, you can effect change.” Damn hippies.

Green Solution to Scottish Economic Woe: Pished Fish

fish

Lefty wonk shop the Green Alliance have come up with a novel way to boost Scotland’s economy: feed the salmon with whisky. Apparently  “biorefining” whisky waste and feeding it to fish is a £140 million opportunity for the Caledonian wannabe petrostate.  This fish food ruse is part of Green Alliance’s crusade to build a “Circular Economy” in Scotland. Guido doesn’t know either…

The Scottish Government is keen to cash in on the fishy scheme, praising the report for demonstrating how Scotland can build a sustainable economic future:

“The circular economy presents a tremendous opportunity for Scotland’s long term economic prospects.”

What a load of old pollocks. 

IPCC in Climate Change Exaggeration Shocker

chart

shagging-snowmanA major peer-reviewed paper in Science Bulletin, a respected academic periodical, has accused the IPCC’s climate model of being riddled with errors. The authors of the paper –Why models run hot: results from an irreducibly simple climate model’ – have presented a new “simple model” that suggests the doubling of CO2 emissions could warm the planet by 1°C- significantly less than the IPCC’s predicted 3.3°C rise.

As seen in the chart above, the simple model proposed in the paper is closer to observed real world temperature change than the IPCC’s current and previous models. One particularity egregious error the paper’s authors level at the IPCC, is that it has been running made up figures in its climate model in order to pump up projected climate change projections – they overestimate population growth by over two billion.

If further proof is needed, it’s also a bit nippy out today innit…

Quote of the Day

Labour candidate Clive Lewis tells the Staggers:

“I mean, in the multiverse there’s still three universes in a hundred where there’s a Green MP in Norwich, so anything could happen. I could be caught with my pants down behind a goat with Ed Miliband at the other end – well, hopefully that won’t happen.”
