“Follow the money, because that’s really all climate change policy, sustainability, and science seems to be about these days.”
Spot-on Anthony. Great investigative post exposing the serial eco-hypocrites. Though, not sure how “Exclusive” it is owing to your disturbingly true observation that “there is a constant merry-go-round of academic conferences scheduled all over the world every year which they are required to attend to maintain their academic status – and also to get free vacations, of course. There are dozens of conferences like this every year, year after year, all over the planet, all similarly purposeless and unnecessary – part of the endless academic gravy train of grants and free travel.”
WAY to go Eric and Co…!
Some hypocritical findings after attending a climate conference at the University of California at Berkeley
UC Berkeley is just a short drive away, about three hours.
We are often told by the “holier than thou” types who lecture us on the evils of modern energy consumption that we should travel less, reduce our use of fossil fuels, have less children or no children, and suggesting we even kill ourselves for the betterment of the planet.
However, these same people don’t seem to practice what they preach. First, let’s set the stage. For example Eric Holthaus, who is meteorologist and staff writer for Grist (formerly Slate) wailed that he will have a vasectomy to prevent population growth.
Then he said, kids are OK while telling the world how “fucked up it is”, and announces his first child with this tweet:
He’s now reportedly got two children and is…

There is no statistical difference between the two trends. Well, I guess that qualifies as a comment …
Best to everyone on a day full of sunshine,
My Usual Request: Quote the exact words that you’re discussing, so we can all understand who and what you are referring to.
UPDATE: I’m sure Willis won’t mind that I added “Man-made Climate” to the title, because search engines aren’t as smart and interpretive as he and I – Anthony
Dellers’ book title sums up the mad and destructive hypocrisy of the climate change cult perfectly: “Greens: Killing The Earth To Save It”! An excellent read at that.

Hardwood forests cut down to feed Drax Power plant, Channel 4 Dispatches claims
Brendan Montague | 16th April 2018
A Dispatches investigation has uncovered evidence of hardwood forests being chopped down to provide ‘green energy’ for the UK. Experts say unique habitats rich in wildlife are under threat as Britain’s power stations switch from burning coal to wood, writes BRENDAN MONTAGUE
Huge areas of hardwood forest in the state of Virginia are being chainsawed to create ‘biomass’ energy in Britain as the government attempts to reach targets to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in efforts to tackle climate change, an investigation by Channel 4 Dispatches…

“My goal here is to show the enormous energy levels involved and how ridiculous it is to blame humans for any significant ice melt.“ – (Julius Sanks is an engineer and manager with experience developing weather forecasting systems and environmental satellites.)
Can we puny humans produce enough energy to melt the huge icecap? Some math helps.
Guest essay by Julius Sanks
When discussing climate with people who do not have technical backgrounds, I have learned much of the climate discussion is a foreign language to them.
Phrases like “Dalton minimum” or “Atlantic multidecadal oscillation” make their eyes glaze over. Once, after I explained what causes wind, the reply was, “my head hurts.” So, I no longer try to explain atmospheric science. Besides, I am an engineer, not a meteorologist. I have had better luck by sharing simple examples that let people reach conclusions on their own about human versus natural influence. Telling them I can show them the math if they want to see it adds credibility, because few, if any, alarmist publications intended for the general public include any math to support their claims. Describing…

EXCELLENT! Rowan Dean and Ross Cameron, two absolute legends of Australian ‘mainstream’ media. Their top-rating show “Outsiders” attracting a huge audience of the forgotten silent-majority, conservative audience who appreciate the bi-weekly attention to the rational side of the climate debate – skepticism!
Nice one Ian, Sky, Ross and Rowan! Keep up the great work. A breath of fresh air!

Sky News, one of Australia’s most popular news services, just gave climate skeptic and geologist Ian Plimer an honest opportunity to explain what is wrong with Australia’s climate obsessed energy policies.
It’s ‘not possible’ to have cheap, reliable energy and reduce emissions
Geologist Ian Plimer told The Outsiders that Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg had caught himself ‘between a rock and a hard place’ when it comes to the government’s energy policies. Mr Plimer said it wasn’t possible for the energy market to provide cheap and reliable energy, but also reduce emissions. It comes after several Liberal backbenchers formed a ginger group to promote the idea of the government subsidising a new coal fired power plant to be build on the existing Hazelwood power station.

“CO2 can’t and doesn’t warm water. The only mechanism by which CO2 can affect climate change is through the thermalization of LWIR between 13 and 18µ, that is it. Those wavelengths don’t penetrate or warm water.”
Two of the above graphics are of ocean temperatures, one if of atmospheric temperatures above the oceans. Can you tell the difference? The problem climate alarmists have is that the oceans are warming. To explain global warming, you have to explain ocean warming. We’ve pointed out umpteenth times, CO2 can’t and doesn’t warm water. The only mechanism by which CO2 can affect climate change is through the thermalization of LWIR between 13 and 18µ, that is it. Those wavelengths don’t penetrate or warm water.

Meanwhile, in the UK, 48,000 succumb to the record cold winter of 2017/18. https://climatism.wordpress.com/2018/04/08/runaway-global-warming-update-48000-brits-dead-after-worst-winter-in-42-years/
With that in mind, we really do live in a bizarre world when totally avoidable deaths of thousands of Brits due to ‘extreme’ cold are superseded by trillion pound virtue-signalling climate policies, passed without a blink, designed to prevent a supposed 1-2 degree warming by 2100!?
Welcome to the regrettable age of collective eco-madness.

Booker “celebrates” the 10th anniversary of the Climate Change Act!
There could be no better example of how those in the grip of groupthink tend to float ever further off into make-believe than a recent article by Claire Perry, our new Minister of State for Energy. She was celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Climate Change Act, the one which committed Britain, uniquely in the world, to an 80 per cent cut in our CO2 emissions by 2050 (once described by Nick Timothy, Theresa May’s former joint chief of staff as a “monstrous act of self-harm”).
Perry boasted that this “ground-breaking Act has been absolutely instrumental in advancing climate action globally over the past decade”, and is now inspiring other nations “to follow in our footsteps”. She went on to say that “trillions of pounds of private sector capital… will be needed to be deployed if we…
