1984 was not an instruction manual: Trying to memory-hole ‘climate hysteria’ will only create more climate change skeptics

Germany’s literary establishment has declared a moratorium on the phrase “climate hysteria.” No wonder “climate denial” is epidemic – there’s no better way to convince people something’s not real than making belief mandatory.

Hundreds arrested for deliberately starting catastrophic Australian bushfires

Directed energy weapons? I think not!

CANBERRA, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) -- Hundreds of Australians have been arrested for allegedly deliberately lighting Australian bushfires in only a matter of months.

Australia is currently enduring one of the worst bushfire crises in the nation's history, with at least 25 people having been killed since September.

The Australian reported on Tuesday that 183 people have been arrested for lighting bushfires in New South Wales (NSW), Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.

Soros-linked political pressure group Avaaz joins forces with MSM to purge climate skeptics from YouTube

Independent mainstream media outlets are engaging in a politically-motivated campaign to force YouTube to demonetize and hide any video that denies climate change.

Published on Avaaz’s website, the left-leaning non-profit group released a report on January 16 that claims YouTube is profiting by broadcasting misinformation to millions of people by giving climate denial videos too much prominence. The report is an undisguised intimidation campaign, as not only does it list major advertizers who are running ads on videos that question the legitimacy of the threat climate change poses for humanity, but it explicitly calls for them to put pressure on the platform as a means of putting an end to the so-called disinformation.

NZ First MP and Minister Shane Jones takes aim at 'eco-bible-bashing' climate-change activists

Outspoken NZ First MP and Minister Shane Jones has launched a scathing attack on climate-change activists who want Kiwis to eat less meat, blasting their form of "eco bible bashing".

He has compared them to "medieval torture chamber workers" and has vowed to rally against this sort of "absolutism" as Election 2020 draws closer.

His comments come after the Government, of which he is a Minister, announced school children would be taught about climate change in class.

Education Minister Chris Hipkins said kids will be taught the role that science plays in understanding climate change, as well as how it impacts the planet both globally and locally.

They would also be taught how to contribute to reducing and adapting to its impact on everyday life.

Climate Change Minister, Green MP James Shaw, said one of the ways kids could help reduce emissions was to eat less meat.

2020 Will Have Lowest Solar Activity in 200 Years – Severe Earth Cooling is Predicted

Based on historic solar cycles, solar activity will dwindle in 2020 to the lowest level in over 200 years. The low in the sun’s 11-year cycle is likely to cause odd weather patterns and may cause severe cooling, especially in Europe and North America. Based on 20 years of observation and data, scientists are predicting that the sun will be nearly seven percent cooler and dimmer by 2050 causing a ‘mini ice age’.

7-year-old children left psychologically terrorized after hearing Greta Thunberg speech… “I don’t want to die!”

According to the National Post, the schoolchildren were forced to watch a video of a “carbon clock.” The clock counted down from eight years, suggesting the children have less than a decade to live. The video warned that eight years is “the estimated amount of time it will take to emit enough carbon to warm the world by 1.5 degrees Celsius” – setting off a catastrophic string of events that will cause mass extinction of humans.

Psychologists warn that children are high impressionable at this age. “Children this young are highly impressionable concrete thinkers who interpret what they hear very literally,” says Pediatrician Dr. Michelle Cretella. “Between the ages of 7 and 11, children gradually become able to understand specific examples of cause and effect, but they still struggle with abstract ideas and putting issues in context.”

These Birds of Prey Are Deliberately Setting Forests on Fire

A new study incorporating traditional Indigenous Australian ecological knowledge describes the largely unknown behaviour of so-called 'firehawk raptors' – birds that intentionally spread fire by wielding burning sticks in their talons and beaks.

...

According to the team, firehawk raptors congregate in hundreds along burning fire fronts, where they will fly into active fires to pick up smouldering sticks, transporting them up to a kilometre (0.6 miles) away to regions the flames have not yet scorched.

"The imputed intent of raptors is to spread fire to unburned locations – for example, the far side of a watercourse, road, or artificial break created by firefighters – to flush out prey via flames or smoke," the researchers write.

Emigration Center Disappears under Snow

“We’ve never before had snow on this scale,” states Valgeir Þorvaldsson, director of the Icelandic Emigration Center in Hofsós, North Iceland, located in two-story houses that almost disappeared under a thick blanket of snow during the big storm last week.

“When building these houses, it never occurred to us we’d have to shovel [snow] off these roofs. There are, I believe, 9 meters (30 ft) up to the gable of the biggest house, and the roofs are very steep, too,” he continues.

Flashback 2018: Prescribed burning debate rages as Australia finds there's no time to burn going into peak fire season

There is a lot more to prescribed burning, also known as controlled burning, than just lighting the match as a changing climate and environment poses new challenges for fire authorities.

Deputy chief fire officer with Forest Fire Management (FFA) Victoria, Darrin McKenzie, said autumn burning this year was particularly challenging and the state only managed to achieve about 30 per cent of prescribed burning programs.

Flashback 2013: Controlled burns are better than the alternative

Prescribed burning, or burning-off, is a crucial land management tool which stimulates germination and rejuvenates the landscape.

But vast tracts of crown land, as well as small properties abutting native bush, are rarely burnt off. In most states, less than 2 per cent of forested crown lands have prescribed burns.

Flashback 2009: Australian firestorms prompt call to return to Aboriginal bush control

"The mismanagement of the south-eastern forests of Australia over the last 30 or 40 years by excluding prescribed burning and fuel management has lead to the highest fuel concentrations we have ever had in human occupation," said David Packham, a bush fire researcher at Monash University, Australia. "The state has never been as dangerous as what it is now and this has been quite obvious for some time."

He said Australia's modern inhabitants needed to learn from the way the Aborigines had deliberately allowed some areas to burn in order to protect others. "There has been a total lack of willingness to instigate a proper fuel reduction management programme based on the skills and understanding of indigenous people who, after all for tens of thousands of years, were the stewards of our environment. We have thumbed our noses at what these people did and knew and we just can't keep on doing it."

Fight fire with fire: controlled burning could have protected Australia

...a not-unrelated court report appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald. It told the story of 71-year-old John David Chia, who in 2014 paid contractors to cut down and remove 74 trees on and around his property.

The judge in this case noted that Chia’s primary motivation for the tree removal was ‘his concern about the risk of fire at his property’, but found also the Sydney pensioner’s actions had caused ‘substantial harm’ to the environment. Chia ended up copping a $40,000 fine — more than $500 for each tree.

Similar legal rulings have become frequent in Australia, as a kind of ecological religious fundamentalism has taken the place of common sense. In 2004, Liam Sheahan was charged $100,000 in fines and legal expenses after clearing land around his hilltop property in Reedy Creek, Victoria. Five years later, that property was the only structure left standing in the area following the state’s deadly Black Saturday fires.

Electric Cars Will Challenge State Power Grids

Seattle aims to have nearly a third of its residents driving electric vehicles by 2030. Washington state is No. 3 in the nation in per-capita adoption of plug-in cars, behind California and Hawaii. But as Washington and other states urge their residents to buy electric vehicles — a crucial component of efforts to reduce carbon emissions — they also need to make sure the electric grid can handle it.

The average electric vehicle requires 30 kilowatt-hours to travel 100 miles — the same amount of electricity an average American home uses each day to run appliances, computers, lights and heating and air conditioning.

A U.S. Department of Energy study found that increased electrification across all sectors of the economy could boost national consumption by as much as 38% by 2050, in large part because of electric vehicles. The environmental benefit of electric cars depends on the electricity being generated by renewables.

Greta Thunberg’s father caught making Facebook posts in her name, confirming she’s a puppet being run by her parents

Thanks to a software glitch at Facebook last week during a software update, anyone and everyone who wanted to see exactly who was posting under the accounts of public figures could do so.

As such, roughly 3 million followers of young Greta could have discovered that the posts accredited to her were actually being made by her father, Svantes Thunberg, as well as a climate change activist in India who is a delegate at the UN’s Climate Change organization, Adarsh Prathap.

So much for the teen’s ‘activism’ — though her ‘handlers’ still claim she is the author of the posts.

Glacier National Park Changes Signs Saying Glaciers Would Be Gone by 2020

Anyone visiting Montana’s Glacier National Park in the last decade or so would have expected all the park’s glaciers to be gone by now because that’s what the park’s signs said would happen. Now, with the glaciers still intact — and, according to some researchers, even growing — the park is quietly changing its displays to reflect reality, at least to some extent.

No, this is not a satellite photo of the fires in Australia

A satellite image of Australia, supposedly showing all the fires that are currently raging, circulates enormously on social networks. We can see that a good part of the country is covered with flames.

In fact, it is not a satellite photo, but a 3D visualization project by Australian artist Anthony Hearsey. To create his image, he took data from NASA's Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS), a forest fire information system around the world.

In the image, Mr. Hearsey included all of the data from December 5, 2019 to January 5, 2020, so the image does not show the fires that are currently burning. In addition, the artist claims that the extent of the most illuminated areas is exaggerated by his 3D rendering.

Flashback: What's the carbon footprint of … the Iraq war?

At the time of writing the financial cost of the US military operation in Iraq since 2003 has been estimated at $1.3 trillion, with a further $600 billion anticipated for the lifetime healthcare costs of injured troops. Extrapolating from the carbon intensity of the health and defence industries in the UK, it's possible to have a rough stab at converting this expenditure into carbon. This approach suggests that the US military operation in Iraq may have clocked up around 160–500 million tonnes of CO2e, plus a further 80 million tonnes for the healthcare of troops.

Add on a few per cent to both numbers to include the coalition forces and, say, another 1% for the footprint of the much more poorly resourced insurgency, and we might be looking at 250–600 million tonnes – roughly equivalent to everyone in the UK flying to Hong Kong and back between one and three times. And that's excluding the direct emissions from explosions.

Meat Loaf Says Climate Change Doesn’t Exist, Greta Thunberg Begs To Differ

During a New Year’s Day interview with the Daily Mail, Meat Loaf, whose real name is Marvin Lee Aday, had some words for Thunberg, who has gotten under the skin of many conservatives, including President Trump.

He said, “She has been brainwashed into thinking that there is climate change and there isn’t. She hasn’t done anything wrong but she’s been forced into thinking that what she is saying is true.”

Nearly 200 People Arrested Across Australia For Deliberately Starting Bushfires

A total of 183 people have been arrested by police in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania for lighting bushfires over the last few months, figures obtained by news agency AAP show.

In New South Wales, 24 people were arrested for arson, risking prison sentences of up to 25 years.

In Queensland, police concluded that 103 of the fires had been deliberately lit, with 98 people, 67 of them juveniles, having been identified as the culprits.

Australian Police Say Arsonists & Lightning To Blame For Bushfires, Not Climate-Change

“Police are now working on the premise arson is to blame for much of the devastation caused this bushfire season,” reports 7 News Sydney.

Authorities in the country have formed Strike Force Indarra, comprising of detectives from homicide and arson units in an attempt to find the culprits.

Other causes for the fires include lightning strikes and a natural weather phenomenon called Dipole, again neither of which have anything to do with man-made climate change.

Many bushfires are also actually caused by environmentalist ‘green’ policies which prevent land owners from clearing their own vegetation to protect themselves.

...

Man-made culprit #2: well-meaning idiots who don’t understand that unless you manage forested areas with controlled burns, you’re going to end up with out-of-control wildfires.

Jo Nova has a damning story about locals in East Gippsland in the state of Victoria who successfully stopped a planned controlled burn at Nowa Nowa. Two of them were pictured holding signs saying, “Spring burns kill baby birds alive” and “Stop burning nesting birds”.

Global hypocrisy? Thousands of climate scientists prove they are following a fad, but are not truly concerned about CO2

Peter Kalmus, a climate researcher with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, highlighted this hypocrisy in an opinion piece he wrote for The Guardian a while back.

Kalmus pointed out that when thousands of earth, sun and planetary scientists flew to New Orleans to attend the American Geophysical Union’s annual meeting at the beginning of December, they undermined their own credibility.

He noted:

In becoming scientists, we didn’t sign up to burn less fossil fuel or to be activists. But in the case of Earth science, we have front row seats to an unfolding catastrophe. Because of this, the public takes our temperature: if the experts don’t seem worried, how bad can it be?

And that’s the point: While scientific experts seem determined to terrify the public with tales of impending doom caused by catastrophic man-made global warming, they themselves carry on living their lives just as they did before, leaving the public convinced that the problem can’t really be all that bad.

Climate change hoax COLLAPSES as new science finds human activity has virtually zero impact on global temperatures

Finnish scientists spearheaded the research, releasing a paper entitled, “No Experimental Evidence for the Significant Anthropogenic Climate Change.”

The paper explains that IPCC analysis of global temperatures suffers from a glaring error — namely, failure to account for “influences of low cloud cover” and how it impacts global temperatures. Natural variations in low cloud cover, which are strongly influenced by cosmic radiation’s ability to penetrate Earth’s atmosphere due to variations in the strength of our planet’s magnetosphere, account for nearly all changes in global temperature, the researchers explain.

As this chart reveals, more cloud cover is inversely related to temperature. In other words, clouds shield the surface of the Earth from the sun, providing shade cover cooling, while a lack of clouds results in more warming:

Michael Bloomberg vows to shut down all U.S. coal plants, plunging America’s power grid into darkness, unleashing “third world” riots across America

As part of his laughable bid for the 2020 presidency (we kind of forgot he was even running…), former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg has promised to completely do away with all coal power plants throughout the United States by the year 2030.

During a recent campaign stop in Virginia, the 77-year-old billionaire vowed to shutter every single one of the country’s 251 coal power plants within the next decade in accordance with his party’s efforts to stop “climate change.”

Though Bloomberg failed to explain how he plans to help those communities that would be negatively impacted by the shutdown of all these power plants, he does insist that it’ll be all good somehow, because going “green” is always awesome to Democrats, no matter the societal impact.

NZ Wind turbine business Windflow Technology runs out of time, money

Pioneering engineering business Windflow Technology is to be liquidated after running out of time and money to develop new markets for its two-bladed wind turbines.

Shareholders last week voted to liquidate the Christchurch-based company and clear its remaining debts. Three of the firm's six staff will remain employed by liquidators PricewaterhouseCoopers to ensure an orderly wind-down of its affairs.

"It is expected that the company will be able to satisfy the liabilities of company creditors," liquidators Malcolm Hollis and Wendy Somerville said in their first report.

"The company was placed into liquidation after revenue opportunities, which it had been pursuing in New Zealand and other marketplaces, failed to materialise."

Science-illiterate Seattle Times claims carbon MONOXIDE causes plants to produce more pollen, which is why climate change is bad… huh?

The deranged climate hysterics who work at The Seattle Times have been caught fear-mongering about the alleged threat of carbon monoxide – not carbon dioxide, or CO2, the usual target – which the paper hilariously claims is causing plants to produce too much planet-destroying pollen.

As part of a continued effort to create as many climate anxiety-inducing headlines and graphics as possible, The Seattle Times published an article recently claiming that plants are “producing more pollen because of increased levels of carbon monoxide in the air, prolonging allergy season.”

The same article goes on to claim that in addition to producing more pollen, increased carbon monoxide “reduces nutrients in the plants we eat,” while greenhouse gases “chew away at the ozone, leading to an increased risk of skin cancer.”

German Greens Propose Giving Passports to All ‘Climate Refugees’

Members of the German Green Party have proposed that so-called “climate refugees” should be allowed to move to the country and receive a German passport upon their arrival.

The proposal was championed by long-time Green politician Claudia Roth who said the passports should be made available for people in areas such as various Pacific islands, which she said could be threatened by climate change, German tabloid Bild reports.

How many “climate refugees” such a policy would cover is unclear, although the United Nations has previously claimed that there could be as many 25 million to over a billion people affected by climate change by the year 2050.

According to the Greens, the World Bank has put out the number of 140 million climate refugees by 2050 from just South Asia, South America, and Africa, all of which would theoretically be eligible for a German passport under the proposal.

Teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg is the subject of a forthcoming documentary film – made by a crew that has followed her since the early days of her school strike. Still believe her rise to fame was an accident?

Thunberg, recently crowned Time magazine’s Person of the Year, can add documentary film subject to her burgeoning resumé. The film, tentatively titled ‘Greta,’ was announced by Deadline on Monday for a 2020 Hulu premiere.

Our sun just set a record for spotlessness: In 2019, the sun has been without sunspots for more than 270 days: Some scientists are predicting we are entering a mini-ice-age (what do you think?)

Solar Minimum has just become very deep indeed. With weather records being smashed all over the world this year, our Star has jumped on the bandwagon too. Last weekend, our sun, set a space-age record for spotlessness (quietness).

So far in 2019, the sun has been without sunspots for more than 270 days, including the last 33 days in a row ( which is 77% of the time this year). Since the Space Age began, no other year has had this many blank suns. The previous record-holder was the year 2008 when the sun was blank for 268 days. That was during the epic Solar Minimum of 2008-2009, formerly the deepest of the Space Age. Now 2019 has moved into first place.

Not Climate Change, Greta... Origins of Deadly Heatwaves That Hit Countries Worldwide Discovered

A team of international scientists have discovered what could be behind deadly heatwaves that hit countries across the globe. According to a study published in the journal Nature, climate change researchers found a link between extreme temperatures and Rossby waves, giant meanders that warp air currents in a wave-like pattern and can be observed in the atmosphere as well as in the world's oceans.

The team of scientists analysed climate data from the past 40 years and found that when particular Rossby waves called – wave 5 and wave 7 - appeared in the Northern Hemisphere's jet streams, they sent hot air flow to North America, Europe, and Asia. The hot air, in turn, caused spikes in temperature making the weather extreme in different parts of the world.
