Panic At The UN

Great video. Shame YouTube have to plaster their global warming propaganda on it with the “official” Wikipedia definition.

The Tories should not have signed up to Corbyn’s alarmist climate ‘emergency’–Charles Moore

Great article. Why more people don’t get this baffles me.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

A very good article by Charles Moore today:

You have already been told that Jeremy Corbyn’s new Labour general election manifesto closely resembles Michael Foot’s manifesto of 1983, when Labour crashed to its biggest-ever postwar defeat.

You have been told right. Mr Corbyn, one must remember, is rather old. He came into Parliament in that election and has dreamed ever since of revenge on Margaret Thatcher. Labour is using the phrase “irreversible shift” in this campaign. It deliberately echoes Mr Corbyn’s hero, Tony Benn, who spoke of an “irreversible shift in the balance of power and wealth in favour of working people and their families”. By “working people and their families”, Benn/Corbyn meant/mean “the state”.

There are two important differences between 1983 and now, however. The first concerns climate change, a subject not mentioned then. Shakespeare’s Macbeth speaks of “making the green one red”. Mr Corbyn…

EU Rules Expose Britain’s Flood Defences

So who or what is most to blame for the flood in Doncaster? Lack of wind mills or EU directives constraining the management of waterways coupled with poor incident management? I know where my money would be.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

According to the Express:

EU directives on “habitats”, “birds”, “water” and “floods” have dominated the UK’s river management strategy for nearly 20 years. The Government’s hands have been tied by a vast list of European Union directives, critics say. The Environment Agency must obey strict rules set in the EU Water Framework Directive to protect wildlife and plants when implementing its dredging strategy.

While the Government has the final decision on whether to clear water channels of silt build-ups, sources have told the Express.that the process is severely hindered by EU rules protecting the “ecological health of rivers”.

The EU insists flood risk management “should work with nature, rather than against it”, according to a note released by the bloc’s environment department in 2011.

Work dredging the country’s waterways has been significantly scaled back because of the huge costs of disposing of silt under the EU Waste…

Climate Change–The Facts

An excellent summary of the basic facts about climate change. It’s easy to ask where are the references but from my experience very few climate zealots are convinced by the detail, preferring to ignore arguments that go counter to their beliefs. Anyone that is open to persuasion (as I was 15 years ago) should find this material thought provoking enough to undertake their own discovery guided by these topics. I shall be sharing widely, thank you Paul.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

I have been asked by a couple of people to produce a simple climate change factsheet, and it might be worth bookmarking for future use.

I have kept it simple, with no graphs or references. As those familiar with this blog, everything below has been fully covered a number of times. Anybody who needs more explanation on a particular item only needs to ask.

Any comments are welcome.

Britain Importing CO2 Emissions!! Who Would Have Guessed?

Even the dead “consume” fossil fuel when cremated. Suggests a modification to that well known saying, the only things certain in life are “Death, taxes and fossil fuel consumption”.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

Britain has contributed to the global climate emergency by outsourcing its carbon emissions to developing nations, according to official figures, despite managing to weaken the domestic link between fossil fuels and economic growth.
