1. January 2018: Worst-case global warming scenarios not credible: Study PARIS (AFP) – Earth’s surface will almost certainly not warm up four or five degrees Celsius by 2100, according to a study released Wednesday (Jan 17) which, if correct, voids worst-case UN climate change predictions.
2. February: ‘Sinking’ Pacific nation Tuvalu is actually getting bigger, new research reveals.
3. March: BBC forced to retract false claim about hurricanes
4. April: Corals can withstand another 100-250 Years of climate change, new study
5.May: Climate change causes beaches to grow by 3,660 square kilometers
6.June: Antarctica not losing ice, NASA researcher finds
7.July: National Geographic admits they were wrong about notorious starving polar bear-climate claims
8. August: New study shows declining risk and increasing resilience to extreme weather in France
9.September: Coral bleaching is a natural event that has gone on for centuries,
10.October: Climate predictions could be wrong in UK and Europe
11.November: Number and intensity of US hurricanes have remained constant since 1900

Not a single link in sight, just, just crap pulled from Wig's ass and QAnon.

RosscoWLG said...

Jeepers you must be blind or ignorant or both... you mean to say you don't know WUWT.

Christ don't you Socialists read anything but your own propaganda?

Get a life and get away from Radio Moscow.

Here's a little help.

Read some of the other stuff on the site, you'll be a more rounded human, if thats at all possible for someone from Adelaide!!

Adolf Fiinkensein said...

Rosco

Having met David many times, I can assure you he is 'well rounded.'

Adolf thats good, very funny, my wife wondered why i was chuckling.. a well fed Socialist.

Never met a skinny Socialist mind you.. too busy eating more than their share of the pie made by some one else!!

David said...

A paid shill for the GOP? Tick

No qualifications in atmospheric science or meteorology. Tick

Sole ability reading an auto-cue? Tick.

You stick with your fraudulent radio announcer, I'll get my science from actual scientists thanks.

Lord Egbut Nobacon said...

David.....actually Wiggo is quite correct. The massive sea level rise is not happening and has been hyped up by interested parties...

When you have valid explanation for this then I will revaluate my stance. https://www.john-daly.com/deadisle/

USA hurricane data is also correct. The worst year was 1942 (don't yell at me if I am out by a year or two, I'm working from memory) trouble is that b the time the news went around the world in those days it was of little interest.

Sinking islands?...once again no. Pick an Island for me and I will give a scientific explanation.

Polar bears?.....thriving and have been for years, read the old research from 20 years ago (before computer modelling). Nothing more heart rending than a photo of a forlorn bear standing on a rapidly melting ice flow to generate funds for the lying bastards that run Greenpeace.

Is the climate changing?....yes but in different ways in different pars of the world.
Is it man made or something that is due to happen like the reversal of the Gulf stream?.....juries out on that one but the uptake of renewables are common sense even for health and ecological reasons.

Renewables have now become Germany's main power source....... https://www.independent.co.uk/environment/renewable-energy-germany-coal-power-environment-green-solar-wind-a8711176.html

The Climate change debate, if you can call it that, has now reached the level of hysteria that was generated during the great Agent Orange scare. Any scientist who spoke out a against the junk science of the day saw his career crumble before his eyes. He would lose any chance of work in universities or prestigious institutions. So they joined the party.

Like Agent Orange did climate change is generating enormous amounts of money for said institutions who have a incestuous relationship with the media so any boat rockers are ridiculed, Think of the Emperors new clothes, everybody agreed they looked splendid and those who did not agree were topped. When you see a press release about rising oceans about to inundate us quickly turn the page.

Johno said...

Both main NZ MSM websites are currently pumping out stories about how sea level rise is causing coastal properties to be washed away.
It's such ignorant crap. The sea level rise since these properties were built is measured in millimeters.
Hysterical, uninformed crap.

Lord Egbut Nobacon said...

Johno....They don't "pump out" stories they merely put out press releases or pay for overseas papers copy. This is how the system works. Good news does not sell, bad news attracts attention and advertisers. It is up to you to do your own research. There is difference between news and opinion, if you wish to know the difference between news and opinion disguised as fact look for the words "suggests, may, might, could and perhaps".....use your head and not your heart.

Eggie agreeing with most of my post..I thought it was someone had hacked your user name again!

Renewables have now become Germany's main power source.

No not right again Eggie, only 19% of the available energy supply in Germany.

Next point you need to answer ...at what cost? (hint: Denmark and Germany have the most expensive power in Europe)

Next question is more a philosophical one that you may want to ponder before just typing something on the fly.

WHY DID THE MARITIME INDUSTRY OVER THE COURSE OF HISTORY SHIFT FROM WIND TO COAL TO OIL ??
(Opps didnt mean to shout, cant be bothered retyping.

Off to a week at Langs beach Nortland..heaven of a beach!

David said...

WHY DID THE MARITIME INDUSTRY OVER THE COURSE OF HISTORY SHIFT FROM WIND TO COAL TO OIL ??

BECAUSE AS ANY FULE KNO, THE WIND DOESN'T ALWAYS BLOW IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION FOR A SHIP. GENERATORS, HOWEVER, CAN SWIVEL TO THE WIND.

No not right again Eggie, only 19% of the available energy supply in Germany.

Why is lying second nature to the eejits on the right? Their lies are so easily debunked.

35.2% of Germany's 2018 power was from renewables.

waddayaexpect from a fule who thinks a bloke who reads the weather forecast is a scientist?

Andrei said...

David the discrepency between what Rossco is saying and what you aer saying lies in the term being used

You say "Power" while he says "Energy"

And of course as Rossco notes German electricity (power) is expensive

"BECAUSE AS ANY FULE KNO, THE WIND DOESN'T ALWAYS BLOW IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION FOR A SHIP. GENERATORS, HOWEVER, CAN SWIVEL TO THE WIND."

AND ANY FULE (sic) can show himself worthy of the title by displays of ignorance

Cutty Sark the epitome of wind powered merchant vessels in the 19th century once logged 17 knots while 15 knots was considered exceptionally good going. She had a complement of 35 men most of whom spent the voyage adjusting the sails to squeeze as much speed out of her as possible

The Maersk Triple E class, the epitome of 21st century naval architecture, have a compliment of 13, cruise at 16 knots and carry more cargo on each voyage, by many orders of magnitude, than the Cutty Sark carried during her entire lifetime

The Triple Es ship high value cargoes across the globe at very low cost which is why we all live so well - a lot better than our 19th century forefathers and that is fact

Thank God for Fossil Fuels and the liberation to mankind they brought about releasing us from a lifetime of heavy labour for little reward to one of unimagined wealth

Johno said...

It's inescapable that capitalism and carbon based energy lifted the bulk of the world's population from subsistence poverty to relative comfort.
Eventually renewables will catch up but they're not even close at the moment.

Voyager said...

PMSL that someone should be quoting the late John Daly as an authority. Daly accusers St Margaret Thatcher as kicking off the whole "debate". Yes, good old Milk Snatcher Thatcher, paragon of free market economics and slayer of the workers, was a believer!

Johno....that's rich coming from somebody who lives in a country that has 82% of it's power from renewables.
