Here’s an interesting video that brings home the incredible risks being taken in South Australia in pursuit of a clean energy experiment.
..job losses, sky rocketing prices and ongoing blackouts…just some of the risks the state is taking as we enter the untested and the unknown…
..it really is the perfect storm for business owners in South Australia…
…extremely doubtful that any new business would set up in South Australia, I really think they would be mad to, simply because of the high costs of electricity which are set to get even higher…

It appears that in terms of cooking the books you can’t beat the US National Oceanographic and Aeronautical Administration. They make the MetOffice look good and that is really saying something.

An inspiring article by Peter Sissons on the Mail Online called “PETER SISSONS: I drove out of Television Centre for the final time last month… and I don’t have a pang of regret” was recently brought to my attention by TallBloke.
It’s quite an old article, published in 2009, but I hadn’t yet started taking an interest in climate alarmism or the BBC bias at that time. It really is a worth the 10 minutes it takes to read but if you are a staunch defender of auntie you might find it somewhat uncomfortable. If Sissons is to be believed, and there seems to be no reason to doubt, then the BBC approach to news is deeply flawed not least by its public sector blame culture and cowardly editorial approach. It is clear that 24 hour news, blurring the lines between news and entertainment, has had a fundamentally negative impact on the quality of news produced.

Scientific consensus is of course an oxymoron. If a theory is wrong, it is wrong however many people believe in it. It only takes one person to prove them wrong by presenting reproducible data that stands up to rigorous scrutiny. In climate science it is difficult to wander around the web for 5 minutes without falling over such data, even published by the likes of NASA and the IPCC (ignoring the infamous summaries by policy makers). This raises the the sort of reasonable questions asked here:
The Paris Climate Challenge
Unfortunately there is no chance the official Paris Conference COP21 will address them.
More about the Paris Climate Challenge Conference here. I notice that Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers is speaking at the conference, I would love to be a fly on the wall when those two get together for a family gathering!
