Australia’s premier scientific body and hotbed of climate alarmism, the CSIRO, conducted a similar study with similar results, concluding that global warming ‘believers’ are now in the minority.
A recent American study also reflected the same majority shift toward climate scepticism.
Fascinating and heartening results considering the bombardment of largely uncontested climate alarmism and breathtaking propaganda that has been hammered out across the mainstream media for years.

Are prophets of climate doom going out of fashion? The BBC fears so.
Public support for a strong global deal on climate change has declined, according to a poll carried out in 20 countries. Only four now have majorities in favour of their governments setting ambitious targets at a global conference in Paris.
In a similar poll before the Copenhagen meeting in 2009, eight countries had majorities favouring tough action. The poll has been provided to the BBC by research group GlobeScan.
Just under half of all those surveyed viewed climate change as a “very serious” problem this year, compared with 63% in 2009.

‘Green’ energy – wrecking the environment (and people’s lives) to save it.
Tsk tsk tsk.
The hidden costs of wind, solar power
13 November 2015
The state of California has embarked on a 25-year green power odyssey in an effort to reduce the amount of CO2 we place into the atmosphere, all aimed at leading the world in an anti-climate change crusade for humanity.
Beginning in 2030, 50 percent of all electrical power produced for our regulated utilities will be mandated “renewable” energy. This definition under the current law includes energy from solar, wind and small hydroelectric facilities built, or to be built, over that time frame. It excludes residential solar installations and existing large hydroelectric projects such as energy produced from Hoover Dam.
While some of this new power will be “infill” development (smaller solar projects that may be placed in vacant or brown-field urban areas), most of it…

The nefarious intent of NASA/GISS temperature adjustments is no more evident than when dealing with UHI (Urban Heat Island effect).
In every case I’ve seen, there is a consistent pattern of adjusting temperatures ‘up’, in the latter half of 20th century, as cities artificially warm with infrastructure growth, rather than adjusting them ‘down’ to compensate for this well known UHI effect.
This inverse UHI logic, leading to an increase of late 20th century temperatures, is further compounded by massively adjusting mid-century (1940’s-1960’s) temperatures ‘down’!
Cooling the past and warming the present, to fit the ‘global warming’ narrative.
This is scientific fraud and it-is-a-crime.

There are only ten GHCN stations currently operating in South Africa, and only one of these, Calvinia, is classified by GISS as rural. It has a population of 9000, and is situated inland in the Northern Cape province.
|Airport Y/N?||Pop K|
This is the actual temperature trend at Calvinia, based on GHCN V2 raw data in 2011.
There has been no warming since the start of the record. Yet the current version of GISS, which is based on adjusted GHCN data, has miraculously morphed into a sharply rising trend.
Temperatures prior to 1989 have been marked down by around 0.7C, and those 1940’s ones by even more.
So, what about the other nine sites? We have three with…
