Isn't it nice to have the log fire burning up, even up here in the so called Winterless North.
As we have reported on this blog many times, there is much cold weather about. It is almost like old times!
Yet, despite the growing evidence that climate change is changing back to what it was, our political masters are still pushing ahead with their tax and control scams.
David Farrar today highlights the latest ETS proposals from Environment Minister Nick Smith.
Naturally, the pollies are all for it, as it gives them all something to do through extra regulation.
Indeed, no doubt we will see the new report from the ObamaMessiah on climate change touted as a case for action, even if it is riddled with holes. For example, there has always been storm damage, hurricanes, flooding, etc, etc, long before co2 might get the blame. Event-related deaths are falling too.
Indeed, as Australia debate its own ETS, the climate change minister cannot answer a few sceptical questions.
Then there's issues like non-melting ice caps, coolings seas that arent rising and a cooling climate! Here are some graphs confirming the cooling.
Bloggers like Micky's Muses regularly cover the scam of Global Warming. We also mustn't forget Andrew Bolt, Ian Wishart and Tim Blair.
Here's a fine and extensive piece from the American Daily, noting the climate does change but it is natural, not man-made as claimed..
Newsmax notes more evidence the Earth is cooling, pointing out flaws in Obama's new report.
The Canada Free Press notes scientists accusing the report of scaremongering.
Anyway, here's a website devoted to promoting a belief in climate cooling.
And that's before we get into debate about sun spots and the like.
Either way, while the climate may have warmed up in recent decades the trend does seem to have reversed in recent years. True, there will always be variations. I see the global warmongers are starting to claim the last few years as such a natural variation. But if we can have short term fluctuations, why not have them lasting decades or even centuries.
Why must we hamper our economies for a science that is increasingly unproven as people dig deeper. Just as the right maybe accused of vested interests, surely this applies to the left and the government-funded scientists.
New Zealand certainly needs the debate again before it shackles up its economy.
In the meantime, I am heading off to Kerikeri to buy some kindling for the fire.
Yes we are having climate change, a change back to what it was. And so much for the Winterless North!
