"I am not aware of any
empirical data showing CO2 increasing with global temperature rising afterward
as a result.
Or falling with global temperature following suit. I am waiting for the eco-fascists to provide such evidence if they can find it. But I have waiting a very long time now.
Alternatively perhaps they can provide evidence of any of their dire predictions bearing fruit. I've never seen that either.
So what it ultimately boils down to is blind faith, a sick form of religion, one that has for years - no, decades now - been forced on us by politicians" [source].
"There is no convincing
scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane,
or other greenhouse gases
is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate.
Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide
produce many beneficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth"

Bezos's $10 Billion Greenwash is Disgusting, Hypocritical and Wrong (20 February 2020)
"[I]f Bezos imagines that this act of blatant greenwashing will do anything either to save the planet or make the world a better place then he is living in cloud cuckoo land. The donation, it goes almost without saying, is a classic case of the ugly phenomenon identified by Douglas Murray: the unacceptable face of capitalism trying to burnish its image with 'very loud, ostentatious appeals to show that they are on board with the zeitgeist.' If Bezos really wanted to do the right thing, he could pay his workers more or treat them less like slaves..."
"Switch to energy-efficient light bulbs, wash your clothes in cold water, eat less meat, recycle more, and buy an electric car: We are being bombarded with inctructi9ons from climate campaigners, environmentalists and the media about the everyday steps we all must take to tackle climate change ... Individual actions to tackle climate change, even when added together, achieve so little because cheap and reliable energy underpins human prosperity ... It is absurd for middle-class citizens in advanced economies to ell themselves that eating less steak or commuting in a Toyota TM -0.18% Prius will rein in rising temperatures..."
Climate Crisis? What Climate Crisis? (01 October 2019)
"The eco-fascist campaign group Extinction Rebellion tells us there is a 'climate emergency'. So too do all Britain's main political parties. So too do UK government bodies such as the Committee on Climate Change and the Environment Agency. Such disparate groups can't all be lying to us, surely? Yes, they can..."
"It seems like every TV channel and every newspaper and every political leader actually believe Global Warming is caused by human activity. This is truly incredible. Not since people believed that the Earth was flat and you could fall of the edge have so many been fooled into believing such misconceived garbage..."
"At President Trump's first major meeting with international leaders, his world influence has become evident as conversations shifted from the bogeyman of climate change to the real and present danger of Islamist [sic] terrorism. ... Reality has imposed itself ... While the phantasm of global warming hovers over the misty horizon, the reality of repeated slaughters of innocent men, women and children by terrorists inspired by Islamist [sic] ideology is an elephant that insists on being recognised..."
"Britain is enjoying a spectacular heatwave and I don't know about the rest of you but I have been enjoying it immensely. I love the sunshine. ... But enough summer sunshine fun. It seems that not everyone feels quite as enthusiastic about this glorious mid-90s heat as I do..."
"As the Jesuits almost said: 'Give [me] a child until he is seven and I will show you the fully-indoctrinated, yoghurt-weaving, polar-bear hugging eco loon'.

Why the BBC's Preaching on Global Warming is Getting louder (04 April 2015)
"In wishing you all a happy Easter, I was planning to discuss what exactly the fact that this Easter we have fewer primroses in Somerset than usual has to do with 'climate change'. But I have had to hold this over because I need to send a message of sympathy to the BBC for how they have lately had to treat us almost daily to programmes trying to defend the collapsing case for global warming..."
"It was Earth Hour on Saturday. I know, I know, you probably missed it too. All around the world smug weather-worriers dimmed their lights, lit a candle and said a little prayer for the planet as everyone else jus got on with living. Still, a bare 24-hours later the BBC chose to show just how it can manage to shoe horn climate change into just about anything..."
'Earth Hour' is Nothing But 'Poseur Hour' (30 March 2015)
Earth hour came and went again this year on Saturday the 28th of March between 8.30-9.30pm. If you didn't notice, don't be surprised. I think few people who were not already committed climate change catastrophists even knew it was happening. And never mind 'saving the planet'. It seems the main force that now drives the event is a yearly hour of mutual appreciation and backslapping whist switching the lights off..."
"Members of the Scientific Council of the Global Warming Policy Foundation recently criticized the Royal Society's positions on climate. Their clear, authoritative scientific objections to the Royal Society's positions reveal the weak scientific foundation on which the great climate fervor has been based. The public must either become conversant enough to grasp this or step back and get out of the way of those who have. Scientists don't need to be paid to oppose the ideas of climate orthodoxy, because those ideas are just so damn bad..."
"Dr. Christopher Essex, professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Western Ontario, ... said that scientific arguments have deteriorated. ... [He] characterized the pro-climate change philosophy as a form of sophistry, catering to popular opinion rather than being concerned with the truth. [They] are using an old form of Eristic argument - Eris was [the] ancient goddess of chaos. 'They are using this very old, but high profile tactic, in the modern world, ... rediscovered by Saul Alinsky's work'..."

Climate Change, Latest: It's Real Because of the Children (10 March 2015)
"Today, we learn from the New Republic, a delegation of six schoolkids is visiting Washington DC with a view to educating Republican senators ... about the reality of global warming. Let us pause awhile to relish the arrogance, stupidity and frankly borderline child-abusive nature of this ludicrous stunt, cooked up by the hard-left pressure group Avaaz..."
"[T]he BBC's latest desperate attempt to promulgate the cause of climate change alarmism ... was so lamentably biased, so completely uninterested in counterarguments, so blatantly determined to pull the wool over its viewers' eyes with straw men, false analogies and calculated misrepresentations of the real points at issue, that it constituted a flagrant breach of the BBC's statutory obligations to accuracy and impartiality. In short, this programme broke the law..."
BBC's Climate Change Stance in Brazen Defiance of the Law (07 March 2015)
"Next January will see the 10th anniversary of one of the most curious episodes in the history of the BBC. At a 'secret seminar', many of its most senior executives met with a roomful of invited outsiders to agree on a new policy that was in flagrant breach of its Charter. They agreed that, when it came to climate change, the BBC's coverage should now be quite deliberately one-sided, in direct contravention of its statutory obligation that 'controversial subjects' must be 'treated with due accuracy and impartiality'. Anything that contradicted the party line, from climate science to wind farms, could be ignored. The BBC Trust later reported that the seminar had taken this momentous decision on the advice of 'the best scientific experts' present. Only years later, after the BBC had spent tens of thousands of pounds trying to suppress the identities of its 'scientific experts', did it emerge that they had been nothing of the kind. The room had been full of rabid climate activists, from pressure groups such as Greenpeace and Stop Climate Chaos..."

The Idolatry of Climate Madness (01 March 2015)
"Anything - even presumably good things - can become an idol if they take priority and precedence over God himself. ... We certainly get that with the whole area of climate alarmism. Not only has so much of this become a religious crusade for so many, but often it is not even based on real science, but on emotion, fear, political correctness, and media and activist agendas being pushed..."
The Fiddling with Temperature Data is the Biggest Science Scandal Ever (07 February 2015)
"When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records - on which the entire panic ultimately rested - were systematically 'adjusted' to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified..."
"I've never supported the British National party or the Ku Klux Klan. I've never belonged to the Paedophile Information Exchange, or denied the Holocaust, or made a penny from the banking crash. But if you read the Guardian Newspaper's website, you might think otherwise. A commentator on it urged my own children to murder me..."
"Although it has been emerging for seven years or more, one of the most extraordinary scandals of our time has never hit the headlines. Yet another little example of it lately caught my eye when, in the wake of those excited claims that 2014 was 'the hottest year on record', I saw the headline on a climate blog:..."
"'Climate change' is a theory for which there is 'no scientific proof at all' says the co-founder of Greenpeace. And the green movement has become a 'combination of extreme political ideology and religious fundamentalism rolled into one.'..."
No A-Level for 'Climate Change Denier' (12 April 2014)
"Not often does a senior Cabinet minister declare that a policy long pursued by his own department is 'against the law'. But that was the response of Michael Gove, the Education Secretary, to a report exposing just how profoundly our education system has been hijacked by promoters of the official group-think on global warming..."
Is 'Climate Change' the Real Reason We Couldn't Find Flight 370? (24 March 2014)

Death Threats Anyone? Global Warming Deniers Should Be Sentenced to Death (24 December 2012)
"Richard Parncutt, ... reckons [GW skeptics] should be executed. He's gone full barking mad, and though he says these are his 'personal opinions' they are listed on his university web site. For all the bleating of those who say they've had real 'death threats', we get discussions about executing skeptics from Professors, wielding the tyrannical power of the state. Was he paid by the state to write these simplistic, immature, 'solutions'? Do taxpayers fund his web expenses?..."

"[T]he political response to the threat of GW has been lots of talk and little action ... But action is urgently needed. ... Much more would have happened by now if not for the GW deniers..."
Is Climate Science Just a Belief? (13 July 2012)
"The alarmists in the climate debate have what they think of as this magic ace of trumps card, called peer review. If they actually knew something about the peer review process, perhaps they'd realise it isn't a guarantee of anything much. It really isn't. In brief, the process is as follows..."

"[L]et joy be unconfined that one of the archest of the world's arch Greenies - James Lovelock, inventor of the Gaia hypothesis and therefore, more or less, founder of the world's most powerful modern religion - has come clean and admitted that he got it wrong ion his doomsday predictions about 'Climate Change'. Well, come almost clean..."
"Something extraordinary is happening in the great Climate Wars. I had a taste of it just the other day on an LBC talk show. The producer had only booked me in for a ten-minute slot, in case the listeners weren't interested in my boring new book about that tediously hackneyed subject Man Made Global Warming. But the switchboards were jammed and the station ended up keeping me in for a full hour to reply to all the calls..."

Green Myths: Polar Bears Going Extinct, Yawn... (15 September 2011)
"Ask any young person about Polar bears and you'll find out they know all about them. Polar bears are cuddly and harmless but they're an endangered species. Why are they endangered then? It's because of global warming, which is melting all the ice at the North pole and the poor Polar bears are drowning. Year by year, they're getting fewer and fewer and the only way we can save them is by cutting down on our Carbon emissions. Why, the poor creatures are so desperate, they've even begun to attack human beings. It's terrible they tell you and you have to agree, it is indeed terrible but you're thinking about completely different things..."
"On the television news they set up their annual 'Climate Camp' in London. The militant global warmers plant their tents on Blackheath and prepare to march on the City of London, to smash up some banks and moan about free trade and industrial capitalism. The protesters, interviewed on TV, are all very middle-class and nicely spoken. ... At this anti-capitalist 'climate' jamboree, where are the heroic, muscle-bound proletarians?..."
The Secret of Global Warming - Posh Anti-Capitalism (12 August 2011)
"Poor Al Gore. Global warming is fast turning into a joke. ... And yet, for all the onslaught of reasoned, scientific argument, the global warming beast refuses to lie down. ...

The Drumming of an Army (March 2011)
Poetry, said Auden, makes nothing happen. Usually it doesn't, but sometimes a poem gets quoted in a national argument because everybody knows it, or at least part of it, and for the occasion a few lines of familiar poetry suddenly seem the best way of summing up a viewpoint. Just such an occasion has occurred recently in Australia..."
The Death of the AGW Belief System (07 December 2010)
"If you're tracking the collapse of belief in AGW around the world as closely as I am, it's important to recognize that what you're actually looking at is the collapse of a belief system. The progress and pathology of this phenomenon has been documented and reliably understood for some time..."
The Religious Right Takes a Hard Left (24 October 2010)
"We live in age of scientific hegemony (if I may borrow a term from the Marxists and feminists), where access to intellectual power and influence is granted to those who demonstrate their loyalty to the approved theories of the ruling elite. Scientists who refuse to bow at the alter of uniformity are labeled heretics and cast out of the intelligentsia, condemned to lives of unfunded grant proposals, tenure denials, and ruined reputations..."

Eco-Fascism Jumps the Shark: Massive, Epic Fail! (01 October 2010)
"I predicted this morning that No Pressure - Richard Curtis's spectacularly ill-judged eco-propaganda movie for the 10:10 campaign - would prove a disastrous own goal for the green movement. But what I could never have imagined was how quickly public disgust - even among greens - would reach such a pitch that the campaigners would be compelled to withdraw it from the internet. This, at any rate, is what they keep trying to do..."

The Church of Climate Change: Here Comes the Green Shepherd (23 June 2010)
"Just when we think there can't be another movement to invade our church pulpits, we find one waiting in the wings. ... we now have to brace ourselves for the 'church of climate change'. Like [all] the other [movements] ... the church of climate change is not biblical. Nor will it get anyone into heaven or draw anyone closer to the Lord. ... So where is the push for this originating? The White House - because it wants the church to advance the climate change agenda..."
Global Warming: What a Climate Con! (27 January 2010)
"We are solely to blame for global warming / What's the fuss about the hockey-stick graph? / The world has never been warmer / Global warming causes extreme weather / Glaciers are melting and the sea's getting hotter / We must spend billions to protect the planet / Evidence for warming is overwhelming / Polar bear numbers are declining / Atmospheric CO2 levels are dangerous / All top scientists still believe in warming"
Windfarms? We Might as Well Use Hamsters on Treadmills (05 September 2009)
"A weird and irrational cult has us in its grip.

Global Warming: The New Eugenics (27 December 2008)

BBC Shunned Me For Denying Climate Change (05 November 2008)
"When I first stuck my head over the parapet to say I didn't believe what we were being told about global warming I had no idea what the consequences would be.

The Green Agenda: The Carbon Currency (No Date. Possibly 2007)
"Modern industrial society, ... has always represented the 'Great Satan' to the modern green movement. They despise and fear capitalism and economic growth. Ever since its inception in the 1960s the green agenda has always been to find some way to destroy the free market system. The 'Climate Crisis' is the weapon they have crafted to deliver a fatal death blow. A scheme they are currently pushing hard is called 'Contraction and Convergence'. Under this system entire countries would have carbon rationing imposed upon them..."
"I can certainly understand why neo-pagans like Al Gore believe, despite overwhelming scientific evidence to the contrary, man-made, catastrophic global warming is the greatest threat to the planet. What I can't understand is why people who claim to believe in the Bible as the inerrant, inspired Word of God do so..."
Green Lies and Amazing Truths (20 April 2007)

Hysteria (01 March 2007)
"The U.N. recently announced global warming is leading inexorably to global catastrophe. Al Gore won the 'best documentary' Oscar for his disaster film 'An Inconvenient Truth'.

YOUTUBE: New Levels of Climate Change Hysteria (05 September 2019)
Viewers' comments: "Ever notice how most of the people pushing climate change have a bigger carbon footprint in a weekend than the average person has in their life" / "CO2 doesn't drive climate. The orbit and tilt of the earth do. Oh I'm sorry was I not supposed to say facts here?" / "I thought the reason to save the environment was so our children would inherit a good world. So why would we avoid having children to save the environment?" / "Save the planet for the children! By not having children?" / "Having babies in the West, bad for climate change. Unfettered immigration from low carbon countries into the west, not a problem!" / "Europe: to protect the environment, have fewer children. Europe: your birth rate is too low, you must bring in migrants. Hmmm, I spot a PLAN" / "They would rather eat people than talk about restricting immigration. That's how messed up PC culture has made them" / "The phrase to watch out for is 'food security'. Make no mistake, globalism means the elites tell you what you can eat... and when"
More viewers' comments: "Anyone who suggests cannibalism as a solution to anything should offer themselves up for food is they are so concerned" / "Ah yes. Cannibalism. Let's make human trafficking an even grater issue once that pesky ethics thing is done away with" / "Some say there is no devil, then ideas like these seep in from... somewhere..." / "Remember the reason for mad cow disease? Feeding cows with cows... so feeding humans with humans will result in?? Probably more woke SJW non-binary vegan feminists or worse" / "Eating your own species as an excellent vector for horrific parasites and diseases like CJD" / "This is a new level of insane. If the only way of 'saving the planet' is by humans resorting to eating insects and dead humans, then I'm not sure it's a world worth saving at that point" / "I always make the mistake of concluding that society is so insane that I can't be surprised anymore" / "The Onion: Sorry folks, we're going out of business. We've run out of insanity to satirize"
"We should all want to be wise and careful stewards of the beautiful planet we call home. But most of us realise that humans in general are not being good stewards. We are wasteful with our natural resources and have reduced biodiversity. Therefore, when we read about groups and organisations calling for a 'green revolution' and a new relationship between humanity and nature it is easy to agree with their ideas. However, certain aspects of the modern green movement that is permeating every segment of our society are not about protecting the environment. You don't have to dig very deep to discover the true beliefs of the influential leaders who are using genuine concerns about the environment to promote an agenda of fear and control..."
"News and commentary on puzzling things in life, nature, science, weather, climate change, technology, and recent news."
"The purpose of the Petition Project is to demonstrate that the claim of 'settled science' and an overwhelming 'consensus' in favor of the hypothesis of human-caused global warming and consequent climatological damage is wrong. No such consensus or settled science exists. As indicated by the petition text and signatory list, a very large number of American scientists reject this hypothesis. Publicists at the United Nations, Mr. Al Gore, and their supporters frequently claim that only a few 'skeptics' remain - skeptics who are still unconvinced about the existence of a catastrophic human-caused global warming emergency. It is evident that 31,487 Americans with university degrees in science - including 9,029 PhDs, are not 'a few'. Moreover, from the clear and strong petition statement that they have signed, it is evident that these 31,487 American scientists are not 'skeptics'. These scientists are instead convinced that the human-caused global warming hypothesis is without scientific validity and that government action on the basis of this hypothesis would unnecessarily and counterproductively damage both human prosperity and the natural environment of the Earth."

The Little Green Book of Eco-Fascism (2013)
"Do you believe we should bomb our economy back to the dark ages? Carpet our beautiful countryside with bat-chomping, bird-slicing eco-crucifixes? Indoctrinate our kids with scary North Korea-style propaganda nonsense in order to deal with the alleged perils of 'climate change'? Neither does [this author]..."
"If global warming isn't real then how come the ice caps are melting? Why would all the world's top scientists lie to us? What exactly is so wrong with biofuels, wind farms, carbon taxes, sustainability and preserving scarce resources for future generations? And what about Bangladesh, the drowning Maldives and all those endangered polar bears? [This author] has all the answers - and they're not the ones Al Gore would like you to hear. In Watermelons [this author] tells the shocking true story of how a handful of political activists, green campaigners and voodoo scientists engineered the world's biggest, most expensive and destructive outbreak of mass hysteria - one that threatens the very fabric of Western Civilisation. As the world stands on the brink of a new Great Depression, [this author's] message could not be more timely or urgent. In order to save our planet must we really surrender to the green movement's misanthropic tyranny? Or might there be a better way?"
Unstoppable Global Warming (2007)
The authors of this book argue "that natural variations, rather than human-emitted greenhouse gases, have tended to control the climate" / These authors "skilfully present their case for the existence of a solar-induced 1,500-year cycle that generates warming and cooling of the Earth's temperature irrespective of the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases" / The authors "highlight the many fallacies associated with the hysterical claims of dangerous climate change and unsubstantiated computer projections surrounding the theory of human-caused global warming."
The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World (2001)
"The idea for this book was born in a bookstore in Los Angeles in February 1997. I was standing leafing through Wired Magazine and read an interview with the American economist Julian Simon, from the University of Maryland. He maintained that much of our traditional knowledge about the environment is quite simply based on preconceptions and poor statistics. Our doomsday conceptions of the environment are not correct. He stressed that he only used official statistics, which everyone has access to and can use to check his claims. I was provoked. I'm an old left-wing Greenpeace member and had for a long time been concerned about environmental questions..."
"Soviet-era pseudo-science with disturbing parallels to the modern 'global warming' industry."
"Trofim Lysenko was an obscure agronomist of then-fashionable peasant stock who rose to great prominence in the Soviet hierarchy by telling Lenin and Stalin what they wanted to hear. Lysenko claimed to have developed a brilliant technique called 'vernalisation' which would triple or quadruple crop yield. In truth it was neither original nor effective, and its wholesale adoption by the Soviet system - in preference to more scientifically credible methods - may well have contributed to the deaths of millions through famine, not only in the Soviet Union but also in Mao's China, which embraced Lysenko's theories.
"As Lysenko's star rose, so those brave scientists who dared to speak out against his intellectually and morally bankrupt pseudo-science were punished by imprisonment, exile or execution.
"Richard Lindzen, the distinguished atmospheric physicist and global warming sceptic, is among many to have accused the current climate alarmist scientific establishment of being guilty of Lysenkoism. Sure, the alarmists don't actually have their scientific opponents killed anymore but they do - as we saw in the Climategate emails - set out to smear them, ridicule them, marginalise them and have them starved of funding.
"Lysenkoism caused serious long-term harm to biology in the Soviet Union. Climatism looks set to do much the same to contemporary climate science"
[James Delingpole, The Little Green Book of Eco-Fascism, pp.167-168].
"Climate change is 'one of the greatest threats to [Britain] since the last world war', Caroline Lucas once told The Guardian. Really? And the evidence for this claim would be what exactly?
"Still, credit where credit is due: at least Caroline Lucas is honest about her politics. 'You're a watermelon - green on the outside, red on the inside', I said to her on the BBC's Daily Politics show. 'Yes - and proud of it', said the Member for Brighton Pavilion"
