“We are plunging now into a deep mini ice age,” says British astrophysicist Piers Corbyn, “and there is no way out.....The fact is the sun rules the sea temperature, and the sea temperature rules the climate,” explains Corbyn. “What we have happening now is the start of the mini ice age … it began around 2013. It’s a slow start, and now the rate of moving into the mini ice age is accelerating.
In an Open Letter to the senior executives of NIWA, MBIE, Ministry for the Environment, Climate Change Commission, the NZTA, and all university vice-chancellors, Peter J Morgan, Honorary Chairman and CEO of Environomics (NZ) Trust, has written what he describes as "Irrevocable refutation of the UNIPCC’s ‘Climate Change’ hypothesis, that mankind’s increasing emissions of CO2 cause the atmosphere to warm up dangerously – known as Dangerous Anthropogenic Global Warming (DAGW)".
Our leading metro paper, New Zealand Herald, has just reprinted from the "Financial Times" an article challenging the convential wisdom about "climate change". The artcle says: "It's a fallacy explored by Bjorn Lomborg in his book, False Alarm. The main threat to polar bears was not changing climate, he claims, but (now curbed) wild hunting. 'If we want to protect [polar bears], rather than dramatically reducing carbon dioxide emissions to try to tweak temperatures over many decades with a clearly uncertain impact . . . our first step should be to stop shooting them,' he writes. Lomborg's is one of two books that set out to challenge what one might call 'climate miserabilism'. The other is Apocalypse Never by Michael Shellenberger, an American environmentalist turned pro-nuclear campaigner. They explore the way in which climate policy is increasingly shaped by emotive, alarmist and sometimes misleading messages."

A New Zealand colleague, Peter J Morgan, has clarified, by editing, an excellent paper by Cap Allon, of electroverse.net, which shows conclusively that the global temperature record since 1880 is highly related to solar activity, and the stark climate reality is that cold times are returning as a new solar minimum threatens. Peter has converted the paper to pdf format, and enlarged the explanatory graphs.
