  • Ban the Beef? Oregon Shows the Way

    2021-05-06

    Ice Age Farmer reports on the latest in the globalists' war on long-established farming custom and practice - how long before we begin to hear the same rumblings in the UK and Europe?

    "a new bill proposed in Oregon would create a 'sanctuary state' for animals, radically transforming how animals are treated across the state"

    "The language is all about eliminating 'animal abuse', which sounds good, right, but the subtlety is that all animal agriculture has been redefined as abusive... all references to good husbandry practices are eliminated..."

  • A Pandemic of Vulnerability?

    2021-05-04

    Zach Bush meets Del Bigtree in Hawaii (wouldn't we all?) to discuss his views on the latest virus situation - and that's just the start.

    Their first encounterwe highlighted in December 2020 - in fact it's the only video that we have highlighted twice.

    Zach does have an excellent way of expressing himself and explaining his understanding of how our bodies function and how we relate to the planetary ecosystems of life - I have never found anyone else express this compelling vision (and no, that's not over-hyping it), let alone do it so cogently:

  • Is There a Climate Crisis? The Science Says Not Now and Not in the Future

    2021-05-03

    I reported this lecture by Dr Happer back in March, in the form of a transcript.

    I am happy to present this very accessible and informative presentation as a video, which perhaps removes some of the dryness of reading a transcript:

  • The Geopolitics of Climate Change - 2050

    2021-04-21

    Yesterday i had my introduction to the JR Nyquist blog, and today I encounter the Climate Discussion Nexus article on the alleged Chinese ambition to dominate the world...

    Now I have to say that I have no firm information - we are certainly in the realms of speculation, but as they say, if the cap fits, wear it.

    World history has been littered by a long succession of folk who felt that they were entitled to rule the world (or as much of it as they could get their hands on before their regime fell apart) and would go to any lengths to do so. The problem that we face today is that the world has been shrunk to such an extent by sea travel, air travel, probably soon sub-orbital space travel, and recently by what we might

  • Count your Carbon alongside your Calories?

    2021-04-16

    "There’s rising demand for another type of food label as people become increasingly concerned about climate change, and conscious of how they’re contributing to it"

    Demand from whom I wonder? The man on the Clapham omnibus?

    Oh - Extinction Rebellion perhaps?

    Now I may myself occasionally look at the label on an unfamiliar food product before I buy it, but I'm not looking at the calorie count since I long ago decided that the link between calories and weight gain is a relatively minor part of the whole, a part that only becomes significant when the whole is seriously out of balance.

    And I must confess that whilst as a matter of good management I would prefer my food to be locally sourced and subject to

  • Net Zero In Peril?

    2021-04-12

    Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Forum releases another round-up of articles evaluating the prospects for the much-vaunted "Net Zero" initiatives so beloved of the climate lobby. Food for thought.

    As is usual in discussions about "Net Zero", the two indispensable weapons are always carbon taxes and subsidies, both paid for but never voted for by the tax-payer or by the population who purchase power in the form of electricity, gas, or oil.

    But surely we vote our governments into power?

    But when was the last time any major political party gave the voters a choice by standing on a policy platform

  • Debunking the Fake Science

    2021-04-08

    Dr Shiva describes the history of the Climate Change "science" - what is the difference between "science" and pseudo-science?

    (A question that might also usefully be directed towards the Covid-19 pandemic narratives)

    Science requires observations (evidence) in order to prepare a hypothesis, and from that hypothesis we may prepare a number of predictions.

    The resulting predictions are then compared with new observations of reality, and if all of the predictions are observed to be true then that hypothesis becomes a theory... until new observations come along that do not fit the predictions.

    To confirm the theory and guard against errors, the same process must be repeated by independent scientists, working

  • German Audit: Green Energy is a "Danger for All of Germany"

    2021-04-03

    "Control over energy has been a goal of Technocracy since it was founded in 1932. Alternative energy offers control over scarce resources, while destroying abundant energy resources. Whoever control the energy controls all economic activity. Germans are discovering that the whole program is regressive and dangerous"

    Quite so.

    How does Germany differ from the UK in this respect?

  • The Protect Nature Now Coalition

    2021-04-01

    The Protect Nature Now Coalition, an initiative by the Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT),  is all about "Safeguarding Biological Evolution from GMOs 2.0".

    We have heard much about the genetic modification of the food that we eat and the crops that we grow, but here the emphasis is on the microbiological flora and fauna upon which the health of our natural environment, including the soil, indeed you might say Mother Earth herself, depends.

    If nature's microbiome is corrupted, the result may be catastrophic beyond imagining.

  • How to Think About Climate Change

    2021-03-17

    "The Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor Emeritus of Physics at Princeton University, Dr. Happer"

    With a title like that we should expect something special, and I think that that is exactly what Dr Happer delivers in this excellent presentation.

    And yes, this really is all about being green. But does CO2lead to more green or less green?

    He explains how the heating and cooling cycles (day and night) that envelop the earth work, how some of that heat is convected northwards and southwards towards the poles, what happens when CO2 and water (vapour and clouds) get in the way, and how changes to the level of CO2 actually in the atmosphere affect both plants and warmth.

  • Full Length Climate Engineering Documentary ( Geoengineering Watch )

    2021-03-17

    The above photo was taken in Hampshire, England, in June 2019.

    I am happy to say that since that time the sky-trails have abated significantly, and had done so prior to the onset of the Covid lock-downs that have since reduced the volume of aircraft overhead.

    More natural skies seem to be back in Hampshire, at least temporarily.

    Nevertheless it provides some verification for the theory that we have been sprayed from above with something that doesn't evaporate (as simple water vapour normally should).

    The Ice Age Cometh!

    Oh Wait! - Did we get that wrong?

    With such ever reliable luminaries as Al Gore and Greta Thunberg devoting their lives to this serious cause, it seems inconceivable that climate science should turn out at all wobbly, surely there is something wrong here?

  • UK's "Net Zero" Costs Were Understated?

    2021-03-05

    Did Conservative ministers mislead the people about the true estimated costs of the UK achieving "net zero" emissions by 2050?

    The Sun believes so.

    Now it is true that these figures as now reported were the result of computer modelling by "scientists", so we must hope that their modelling skills were better than those employed at Imperial College for the Covid estimates, but the good news is that if these estimates were indeed overblown by a similar magnitude then the government was probably too cautious in publishing an estimate only £20bn below the modelling result.

    Sadly however I am aware of no evidence that the likely error

  • The Texan Snow that Didn't Melt?

    2021-03-01

    We all read about the severe weather conditions in Texas recently, and we may have noticed various reports that this "snow" didn't melt when exposed to a flame (but did blacken). But I notice that like snow everywhere, after a few days it disappeared.

    So was there any reality to this odd story? I don't know, but in view of the considerable belief that man-made weather does in fact occur all over the world (floods in China etc) maybe it's worth some consideration.

    The USA Watchdog site has the story.

  • Texas Freezes!

    2021-02-19

    Texas freezes in the grip of very unaccustomed sub-zero temperatures, accompanied by widespread electricity black-outs as the power grid effectively collapses due to inadequate supply.

    Wind turbines are frozen stiff, solar panels snowed over, natural gas coal and nuclear generation are maxed out but nowhere near making up the loss of renewables.

    Oh, and the planners didn't plan for unusual but not unprecedented severe winter weather.

    Doesn't that sound a bit like the UK?

     

    Sounds like just the same green energy planning mindset as in the UK.

  • Latest Wind Farm Costs - Not So Cheap?

    2021-02-19

    The Global Warming Policy Foundation reports on the latest accounting information for the new wind farms so beloved of the elites who govern us.

    And sobering reading it is.

    "Since 2017, renewables advocates have argued that offshore wind power is now very cheap. However, closer examination of their claims reveals a different story"

    "The levelised cost (LCOE) remains 3-4 times that of a gas turbine running flat out"
