Extremes Go Down as the Deception Goes Up

By Dr. John Happs

Climate alarmists often make the claim that (imaginary) global warming is already resulting in more extreme weather events. They cite escalating insurance claims following fire or flood as evidence. The link between extreme weather and an increasing number of insurance claims can easily be examined to determine if, in this particular case, correlation actually does mean causation.

From England, Nick Oldridge writes in his article “Insurance and Climate Change”

With climate change set to be one of the greatest risks of them all, insurers stand to be impacted in significant and far-reaching ways. The Bank of England’s Prudential Regulation Authority has identified three key areas of risk for the insurance industry, many of which are already happening.”


The first of these is known as physical impact risk, which relates to the increasing frequency and severity of extreme weather events across the globe. The specific types of weather events include hurricanes, extreme precipitation, tornadoes, landslides, mudflows, drought, wildfires, heat waves, flash floods and rising sea levels.”

No Climate Emergency

By Viv Forbes

Leaders of the Clintel Group of world scientists and professionals will attend the UN Climate Change Conference (COP25) which starts in Madrid today (2 December) and runs for twelve long days. (The Climate Summit was shifted suddenly to Spain after Chile cancelled because of violent riots in Santiago.)

Clintel will present their “No Climate Emergency” petition at the Climate Reality Forum. This petition has already been presented to the UN Secretary General, the European Commission and the European Parliament. Continue reading “No Climate Emergency”

CLINTEL letter to European Parliament to Reject Motion of Climate Emergency

The CLINTEL group has sent the attached letter in which more than 700 prominent scientists call on the members of the European Parliament to reject a motion to announce a state of climate emergency in the European Union.


Reversibility of Droughts, Fires, & ‘Climate Change’

An attempt to understand the mind-set of climate alarmists/activists who believe that our politicians can now control climate & droughts & perhaps even prevent bushfires.

By Graham Williamson, November 2019

No Link Between ‘Climate Change’ & Droughts

According to Professor Andy Pitman:

…this may not be what you expect to hear. but as far as the climate scientists know there is no link between climate change and drought…….there is no reason a priori why climate change should make the landscape more arid……So the fundamental problem we have is that we don’t understand what causes droughts. Much more interesting, We don’t know what stops a drought. We know it’s rain, but we don’t know what lines up to create drought breaking rains.

Climate Change is a Trillion Dollar Opportunity Continue reading “Reversibility of Droughts, Fires, & ‘Climate Change’”

The “New Energy Economy”: An Exercise in Magical Thinking

This was originally published by “The Manhattan Institute:

A movement has been growing for decades to replace hydrocarbons, which collectively supply 84% of the world’s energy. It began with the fear that we were running out of oil. That fear has since migrated to the belief that, because of climate change and other environmental concerns, society can no longer tolerate burning oil, natural gas, and coal—all of which have turned out to be abundant.

Highest Temperature on Record in Perth? Don’t Believe a Word of It

By Dr. John Happs

Channel 7 and Channel 9 news were quick to announce that Perth experienced its highest temperature on record on Saturday, 16th November 2019.

We were told that the temperature reached 40.8oC and a record temperature was claimed. Of course we were not told exactly where that particular temperature was taken and why that “record temperature” was not recorded in neighbouring suburbs.

Interestingly, that“record temperature” of 40.8oC was measured at Perth Airport at 2.00 pm. Also at 2.00 pm, the temperature in Perth City was 38.6oC. Still hot, but 2.2oC lower than Perth Airport.

So what about the temperature in suburbs further west of the airport? Hillarys for instance recorded 24.30oC at 2.00pm on the same day – a whopping 16.5oC lower than the airport “record temperature.” Continue reading “Highest Temperature on Record in Perth? Don’t Believe a Word of It”

The Silly Notion of “Speed Limits for Ships”

By Steve Goreham

Originally published in TheTandD.

Occasionally a report appears which claims to be wisdom, but after careful analysis, offers solutions that don’t make much sense. Such a report was issued earlier this month by United Kingdom consulting firm GL Reynolds, titled “The multi-issue mitigation potential of reducing ship speeds.” The report proposes that we can reduce global warming by imposing speed limits on ocean-going ships.

The Venice Floods – Blame Climate Change?

Late on Tuesday, Nov. 12, high tides from the surrounding lagoon surged onto the more than 100 islands that make up Venice, flooding 85% of the city and damaging artwork and many historic sites. The mayor blamed climate change for the flood. Jim Steele wrote an excellent article about the event and climate change. The Great Flood of 1966 was the worst on record. Since then, Venice has been working on the long-delayed MOSE project which was supposed to prevent flooding. High inflows to the Venice Lagoon from the Adriatic Sea are driven by the strength of the Sirocco and Bora winds that cause local sea level to surge. There has been no trend in the winds. Steele wrote “Dwarfing the 1.4 millimeters per year of estimated sea level rise, from 1930 to 1970 Venice sank at the rate of 2.3 millimeters per year, largely due to ground water extraction. After addressing that problem, the rate of sinking slowed, but Venice continues to sink at a rate of 1 millimeter per year.” The 1996 flood happened during a low tide and the 2019 flood during a high tide.

World Climate Declaration – There is no Climate Emergency

From the CLINTEL Foundation (https://clintel.org/):

A global network of 700 scientists and professionals has prepared this urgent message. Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific. Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures.
