“THE further a society drifts from the truth,
the more it will hate those that speak it.”
– George Orwell
ACCORDING to statistics, we have never lived in more healthy, prosperous and climate-safe times.
MAX Roser’s work for Oxford University’s “Our World in Data” project shows that two centuries ago, 90% of the global population lived in extreme poverty and now, even though the population has grown from less than one billion people to about 7.5 billion, those proportions have completely reversed so that only 10% of the world’s population lives in extreme poverty :
TWO centuries ago, 43% of all babies died before reaching the age of five. This mortality was spread widely — more than one in every three babies did not make it through the first five years in any country. Now, worldwide, more than 95% of children survive their first five years.
DOOMSDAY scenarios are hardly new. They are as old as human communities. In recent decades we’ve had the Club of Rome warning in the 1970’s about how we would run out of food, resources and energy as we overpopulated and polluted the planet. We have seen rampant fears of nuclear Armageddon at the height of the Cold War and millennial doom and gloom in the 90s. But, increasingly, cataclysmic climate alarmism has taken hold and it is deeply rooted, with teachers and activists striking fear into the hearts even of our children.
“The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these
dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through
changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself.“

CLIMATE RELATED DEATHS PLUMMETING AS CO2 INCREASES
BUT, in the emotional world of ‘Climate Change’, facts and data seem not to matter, at all. Especially within the supple minds of our most vulnerable – our children – who, led by child-messiah Greta Thunberg are taking to the streets, during school hours, to protest against the very institutions and energy systems that have afforded them the freedoms and liberties to
skip school protest in the first place.
PEACEFUL protest is a hallmark of our free society, however, children being filled with unchallenged hysteria is having a very real and dark effect. An outcome far, far more dangerous than any arbitrary 1-2°C temperature increase by 2100 (based on UN IPCC projections) could ever produce…
OUR children ought to be filled with enthusiasm and hope, not manufactured mainstream media propagandised hysteria, climate doom and gloom.
THEY need to be taught ‘how’ to think, not ‘what’ to think. Our children are our future. Treat them with the respect and care that they are owed, in order that they may teach their children values, truth, honesty and wisdom.

via the Andrew Bolt Blog :
Are you terrified by claims that global warming is an “existential threat”? That there will be a “great winnowing” and “mass deaths”? That we face “the collapse of our civilisations”?
Don’t believe those scares.
You are told to believe “the science”. Well, here is some science you should believe – solid scientific facts that tell you that global warming is not as scary as you’ve been told.
Be calm. You are not in danger.

EVERYDAY brings a new scare for the Climate Crisis Industry and the mainstream media to hyperventilate over. Successful topics cover things that affect our daily lives the most in order to enhance the important emotional link between climate change and our existence.
THE threat to you daily caffeine ritual is an ideal topic to help drive home the
global warming climate change scare.
A google search of “coffee + climate change” reveals 74,500,000 results in 0.27 seconds. Evidence of an emotional and effective tool used, and as it turns out – abused – in order to scare you into belief…
NOT SO FAST!
ACCORDING to the latest global production figures, the apparent coffee + climate change threat is yet another failed warming scare.
GLOBAL coffee production is soaring as Andrew Bolt correctly notes “The scare got big headlines. Will the reassuring reality now get the same?” Read the rest of this entry »

Andrew Bolt has an excellent piece on the Peter Ridd sacking, well worth a watch.
As well as the specific issue here, he highlights that this is part of a much wider trend in Australian universities, recalling the sacking of Bob Carter for daring to question global warming dogma.
He could also have mentioned Murry Salby.
BREAKING – Warning to Michael Mann: apologise for your lie or risk facing from me what you’ve done to SteynPosted: February 25, 2014
BREAKING via Andrew Bolt Blog :
Normally I do not sue, but this seems to me a special case.
Mann has published an outright lie that defames me, and should face the same punishment he wishes to mete out on Steyn for mere mockery.
I do not lie and Murdoch does not pay me to do so. Nor has Mann singled out a single “lie” I’m alleged to have committed.
In fact, Mann is so reckless with the facts that his tweet links to an obvious parody Twitter account run by one of my critics, clearly believing that it’s actually mine.

UPDATE via Bolt
I have sent Mann the following email:
I note your publication of the following defamatory tweet:
You have published an outright lie that defames me.
I do not lie and am not paid by Rupert Murdoch to lie. You have not identified in your tweet a single example of an alleged lie, which suggests you simply made up this defamatory claim.
Indeed, you were so reckless with the facts that your tweet links to an obvious parody Twitter account run by one of my critics which you have clearly believed is mine.
Your other link is to the website of a warmist journalist who for years was a Murdoch columnist, too, writing on climate change. Was he, too, paid by “villainous” Rupert Murdoch to “lie to public”?
I’ve since learned that you last year retweeted another defamatory comment: “No other media organisation in any other civilised nation would employ #AndrewBolt as a journalist”.
As it turns out, that, too, is incorrect. I am not only employed by News Corp but by Australia’s Network 10 and Macquarie Radio Network, where I host a weekly television show and co-host a daily radio show respectively. I have also appeared as a commentator on other media outlets, including the state-owned Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Al Jazeera, the BBC and Canadian radio stations. I am very confident I would be able to find work as a journalist in another “civilised nation”.
I note this because repeated defamations under Australia’s law is evidence of malice – and your history of defaming me shows a complete disregard for the facts.
It is appalling that you could be so reckless, so spiteful, so destructive and so ill-informed. I have long doubted the rigor and the conclusions of your work as a climate scientist and often deplored the way you conduct debate, but even I had never before today considered publically calling you a liar.
I demand you delete your tweet and issue a public apology on the same Twitter account within 24 hours. Failure to do so will not only cast doubt on your commitment to truth in debates on global warming, but expose you to legal action.
Mann gives a very grudging “not necessarily” apology for his brazen lie (and follows it up elsewhere with a string of insults):
Too late. His mask has slipped. What else has he repeated – whether “science” or personal calumnies – that was false and motivated by spite or self-protection?
Now, how to get Mann to apologise for his “hockey stick” as well?
It’s a “jump the shark” moment for Mann.
As if taking a cue from yesterday’s essay The Merchants of Smear in deciding “enough is enough”, Herald Sun Journalist Andrew Bolt has decided to stand up to him for defamation. He did so in a most professional but firm way. I repeat what he writes in:
Open and shut case. Michael Mann is a liar:
Normally I do not sue, but this seems to me a special case.
