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…

Green Leader: Being on Benefits Worse Than Poverty in India

If the Greens are going to be the UKIP of the left in 2015 they can do without their own fruitcakes and loonies getting headlines for the wrong reasons. Speaking to the Economist, Green leader Natalie Bennett argued that being on benefits in the UK is worse than being one of India’s 179 million people living below the poverty line:

“The world is sodden with stuff, it cannot have more stuff,” said Ms Bennett. Yet [the Greens] do not appear to have considered what that would mean for billions of the world’s poorest people, almost none of whom live in Britain. When Bagehot suggested to her that there was a problem with this, Ms Bennett said he was worrying too much: to be poor in India wasn’t so bad as to be on benefits in Britain, she suggested, “because at least everyone else there is poor too”.

They would rather the poor were poorer, provided the rich were less rich…

Greens Will Still Bill Oddie

First Myleene Klass, now Bill Oddie:

Guido hates to break it to Bill that his new preferred party are no friend of mansion owners either. In addition to their wealth tax on people worth over £3 million, and their so-called backdoor mansion tax whacking up rates for wealthier home-owners, the Greens also propose a draconian Land Value Tax. This is from their website:

“Land, the primary source of all real wealth, is the common heritage. We acknowledge that land is held in trust by human society on behalf of other species and future generations, and that land should not be treated as a capital investment nor traded for speculative profit. We therefore assert the principle that no person and no body should have absolute control of land, but only particular rights over the use of it.

The Green Party proposes introducing LVT as a tax payable on the annual value of land… The level at which the tax would be levied would be based on the full value of the current permitted use of the land… Where a property rockets in value, LVT would seek to tax that windfall increase in property value to be re-invested back into the community.”

What’s a mansion owning North Londoner to do?

Who Wrote O-Patz’s Big Speech Tonight?

Guido is off to see Owen Paterson deliver his speech at the Global Warming Policy Foundation tonight. But is it really his speech?

Viscount Ridley’s sister is O-Patz’s other half…

Let the Greens Take Part in Leaders’ Debates

To be fair to the Greens, and this blog rarely is, Guido cannot think of a single reason why they should not be allowed to take part in at least one of the leaders’ debates next year. They have an MP, won a considerable proportion of the vote last time round, and poll at a not dissimilar level from the LibDems. They have as much right to be in at least one of the debates as UKIP. 30,000 people have already signed a petition calling on the broadcasters to invite the Greens too. You can join them here

There Has Been No Global Warming For Past 18 Years

Today is an inconvenient anniversary for greenies: as of 1 October there have been 18 years with no global warming. Weather satellite data collected by the Earth System Science Centre at the University of Alabama shows the earth’s temperature has “plateaued” since this day in 1996. Its director Dr John Christy says:

“The fact that no one predicted what’s happened in the past 18 years indicates we have a long way to go to understand the climate system. And that the way the predictions were wrong were all to one direction, which means the predictions or the science is biased in one direction, toward overcooking the atmosphere… Our ignorance is simply enormous when it comes to the climate system, and our understanding is certainly not strong and solid enough to make policy about climate because we don’t even know what it’s going to do”

The same climate activists who don’t want to talk about this data are moaning that Dave cut the green crap from his conference speech today…

German Green’s Anti-Nuclear Policies Boost Emissions

Quote of the Day

Boris tells the Sun:

“I think it’s a measure of his desperation, isn’t it, that yesterday we had one of the most absurd political spectacles that this country has ever seen. Not since the Tsar and Tsarina prostrated themselves and asked for economic guidance from Grigori Rasputin, has there been such a ridiculous political pilgrimages as the mission of Ed Miliband – the heir of Keir Hardie for heavens sake – to seek economic guidance from Russell Brand.”
