With the New Zealand Parliament having received a Notice of Motion (since passed on 2 December 2020) declaring a "Climate Emergency", Professor Geoff Duffy, Emeritus Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Auckland sent MPs a written analysis of the many reasons why such an "emergency...
Climate change global warming crisis “cult” misleads governments, terrorizes citizens, and wastes resources say Friends of Science. Carbon dioxide reduction and "damage aid‟ are more forms of “Kyoto Carbon Kleptomania” based on incomplete science and inaccurate computer models. The rush to renewable energy that is not market ready or reliable has forced millions into fuel poverty, hunger and nations into bankruptcy. In this post, Friends of Science present a detailed rebuttal of the alarmist propaganda. (It is a wonderfully masterly 32-page rebuttal of the climate alarmism that a wise commentator has now labelled as "truth decay").

This post by John Rofe, a New Zealand fraud investigator and columnist on energy issues tells a sad story of how and why the man-made global warming hoax was created by a wealthy minority to eliminate their multi-national taxation problems throigh a one-world government.
SEE NEW FILM 'CLIMATE HUSTLE 2"
In his new weekly Wednesday column for NewZealand's most widely-read blog, TheBFD, our Coalition honorary secretary Terry Dunleavy has reviewed CFact's new film, "Climate Hustle 2" which he striongly recommends to anyone seeking the truth about what Earth's climate is doing - or not doing, and the motivations of the wealthy elite who have fomented the false alarm.
“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.
Courtesy of New Zealand's most widely-read blog, The BFD, this post by US CFact analyst, Peter Murphy says: "Some of the wealthiest people on the planet are driving and funding the climate change political agenda for more electric cars, wind turbines and solar panels, and eradication of nuclear energy and fossil fuels. Their message is clear: America and the world must reduce their reliance on traditional energy sources and adapt in order to save the planet. That means higher costs, less energy consumption and reduced living standards."
September 14 was the 14th day when no sunsports were observed. For 400 years a record of numbers of sunspots has been recorded in recurring solar cycles. This method appears to hone in on one forecast and one forecast alone: a cold and snowy future — one akin to the Maunder Minimum (1645-1715), the previous prolonged spell of low solar output and the previous ‘full blown’ Grand Solar Minimum. This post explains what this could mean for the future of Earth's climate.
CLINTEL, the 900-member international group Climate Intelligence Foundation has written an open letter to Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates to point out that his Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is misleading the world in its claims about linkage of the Covid-19 pandemic to "climate change".
Owen Jennings, a former member of New Zealand Parliament and president of Federated Farmers of NZ writes about methane: "It is a part of natural cycle. It has been forever. CO2 in, Methane out, Methane oxides into CO2 and water, CO2 back in again. On and on. No new Methane, no new CO2. Same old, same old. The more Methane, the more CO2, the more grass, the more New Zealand can help feed the world and our planet gets measurably greener."
On TheBFD, New Zealand's most widely-read blog, regular contributor Lushington Brady writes: "Astrophysicist Prof Valentina Zharkova has published a peer-reviewed paper arguing that new understanding of solar cycles suggest that the Earth is about to be plunged into an extended cooling period."
One of our American members, Dr Thomas P Sheahen has reviewed at "WattsUpWithThat" the latest book by Danish analyst Professor Bjorn Lomborg. Tom concludes: "Lomborg has a compelling case, and he makes it quite clearly with common-sense reasoning, a grasp of numerical values, and a comfortable writing style. It contains no equations, only graphs. Everyone who is concerned about pursuing the best approach to climate change will find merit in reading this book. "
Our American NZCSC member, Dr David Wojick posts at CFact about growing recognition of the Magna Carta Universatum 2020 issued recently by CLINTEL (Climate Intelligence Foundation) in which he states: "The climate science community ought to be more honest to the public about the severe limitations of their theoretical models."
The climate change debate might be one of the worst cases of academic suppression in history. CLINTEL (the Climate Intelligence Foundation) has issued the Magna Carta Universitatum 2020. This short document is basically an aspirational code of conduct for freedom of inquiry and speech at universities. The first Magna Carta Universitatum was issued in 1988 and to date at least 889 universities have signed on to it. CLINTEL notes that it is building directly on this precedent, to fit “the special challenges of today”. For each of the five principles enunciated, CLINTEL cites a climate example.
This post is a video of Zoom presentation by Emeritus Professor Geoff Duffy, of University of Auckland, New Zealand, to a men's group, The Shed, in which he explains the difference between weather and climate and the Sun-driven factors that drive the temperatures of Planet Earth. (To start the video, click on the small triangle in the lower lefthand corner, so that word "Play" comes up).
U.S. logician, Dr David Wojick, posts at WUWT: "As a logician, I am always on the lookout for fallacies and there is no lack of them in climate change alarmist policies. New Zealand’s newly released climate risk assessment not only has multiple fallacies, they build on one another in a cascade."
This post contains a pre-release extract for a new book by Danish economist Bjorn Lomborg in which he singles out New Zealand as a country whose current left-wing Government has committed it to a "zero carbon" economy that is unaffordable and will have no measurably material effect on climate behaviour by the end of the current century: "Given the expected temperature increase by around 2100, this means that New Zealand going net-zero by 2050 will postpone the warning that we expected to see on January 1, 2100, by about three weeks to January 23, 2100."
Distinguished U.S. analyst Dr David Wojick posts at CFact: "Few people appreciate this amazing fact, that CO2 in the air is the global food supply. Our meat, fruit and veggies, also our candy and ice cream, milk and wine, are built almost entirely from carbon dioxide and water. Everything we eat and drink.There is also a bit of nitrogen, to make protein, plus a bunch of trace minerals and vitamins, but you and I are basically composed of processed H2O and CO2."
