Blazing Australia Sacrificed on the Green Altar (11 January 2020)
"Green Folly locked up 11% of Australia in a tinder-box of bushfire fuel ... Green Folly closed forest tracks and gates ... Green Folly promotes electric vehicles but not one fire truck ... Green Folly believed that widely scattered wind turbines ... Green Folly promotes 'green' building materials ... For decades, Green Folly opposed every new dam proposal ... It was criminal Green Folly that babbled on about 'the climate emergency' ... Australia cannot afford any more Green Follies..."
A Letter to the Editor - On the Australian Bushfires (11 January 2020)
"Below is a letter from one of our readers in Oz. We're publishing it because it throws a light on aspects which the 'Climate Emergency' shouters prefer not to mention - just as here in the UK the devastating floods, in Somerset a few years ago and recently in Yorkshire, are blamed on 'Climate Emergency/Climate Change' while the real causes, i.e. interference by the green c*** brigade, is conveniently forgotten..."
Stop Getting All Biblical About the Bushfires (10 January 2020)
"Since Hollywood is supposed to inject drama into our lives, we can hardly complain about the hyper-dramatised version of world affairs presented from the stage of this week's Golden Globes. Australia's bushfires were perfectly timed to feed the industry's voracious appetite for suspense, emotion and existential threats from unnatural forces..."
YOUTUBE: Climate Change Hysteria Takes a Reality Cold Shower (09 January 2020)
Viewers' comments re: CLIMATE CHANGE AND FOREST MANAGEMENT: "Bad forest management. Like we don't dredge our rivers, we only follow directives-orders from the EU" / "We have always had these fires, exacerbated by Greens not allowing back burning etc. They have refused to stand down protesting, although they are taking valuable resources away from fighting fires" / "Australian fires are so bad because lefties and greens prevent fuel reduction 'cool-burns'" / "Ignition, fuel and oxygen are the 3 things needed to start and continue a fire burning. You could light a fire at minus temperatures ... The heat of the environment be it 30C or 31.5C (climate alarmists claim 1.5C rise) makes [no] difference! Also the wind has more effect on a fire spreading than the temperature of the environment" / "The risk of bush fires has increased since environmental protection laws stopped people clearing land by deliberately burning bush and scrub and creating fire breaks. Environmental laws have also stopped people removing firewood which is left on the forest floor and which provides extra fuel for the fires" / "So-called 'Climate Science' is nothing of the sort. It's an academic wing of the globalist left, like Gender Studies. So far predictions of climate science since its inception have proven consistently wrong"
Viewers' comments re: ARSON: "182 arrested for arson so far" / "Many of them muslim migrants. Imagine my shock... same in Sweden" / "The first two arsonists named come from that well known Australian tribe who follow the religion of peace ... is that a surprise?..." / "Moslems in Israel have been doing the same. it's called Fire Jihad" / "If guilty then the should be charged with murder for starters..."
Viewers' comments re: JEREMY CORBYN: "Jeremy needs to talk to his brother Piers about the truth on climate change" / "He should listen to his brother Piers who knows a thing or two about the weather" / "Piers Corbyn seems to know the truth about CC... Strange how he hasn't shared this information with his little brother!" / "Jezzer's brother is a meteorologist... he's been debunking man made climate change for years, as have the hundreds of scientists who wrote to the UN when Greta was having her 'how dare you' act, as has the late David Bellamy, Patrick Moore (founder of Greenpeace), etc" / "Jeremy needs to start listening to his brother Piers who has been studying the influence of natural variations in Solar and Lunar activity on weather. Piers notes that everything observed in severe weather events is consistent with natural variation. Piers is like the Canary in the Coalmine; he would be the first to notice severe weather events not consistent with natural variation. Have a look at his website Weather Action"
Aussie Bushfires May Be Caused by Climate Change (08 January 2020)
"No, not that. The climate in question is intellectual and cultural, not meteorological. It's the climate of cultish hysteria whipped up by rent-a-mob fanatics in search of a cause. Their current craze is the urgent desire to save 'the planet' ... Now it turns out that the fires are anthropogenic all right, but not in the way the zealots mean. To wit, almost 200 people have been arrested in Australia for offences related to the bushfires..."
Don't Blame King Coal for the Aussie Inferno (08 January 2020)
"As far as emissions of carbon dioxide are concerned, Australia could shut down its coal industry tomorrow and it not have the slightest effect on global temperatures, climate change or, above all, on wildfires ... If Australia really wants to get the problem under control, it badly needs to get to grips with its fire hazard reduction management, things like clearing undergrowth and creating fire breaks ... The reasons for this neglect of basic bush management are many - misguided green ideology, vested interests, political failure and mismanagement. But it's far easier to blame climate change!..."
YOUTUBE: The Truth About the Australian Bushfires (07 January 2020) [Warning: Some strong language in this video]
"It has nothing to do with climate change" / Viewers' comments: "The lefties think they mean well, and that is all that matters to them" / NB: "This is not a satellite image of Australia. This is a composite picture made in photoshop" / "Our neighbour in Melbourne can't fell a huge tree overhanging the whole street as it is a meter in circumference around the trunk. If an ember hits that then the whole street will burn" / "Several years ago, Richard Littlejohn did a Daily Mail article about the 'Floods caused by Global Warming' in the UK. In fact, the floods were exacerbated by the then-LABOUR Government. That is because they would not allow rivers to be dredged, in order 'to protect endangered freshwater shellfish.' The result? The DECIMATION of said shellfish - just as farmers said would happen unless the rivers were dredged! We therefore have the grotesque chaos of town-dwelling OIKS telling EXPERIENCED farmers what works - and seeing it DISPROVED. But STILL insisting that they know best!"
Another viewer's comment: "We have been wanting to do hazard reduction burning here for 2 years and we have been told no, no, no. Then in September 2019 they came in during a full fire ban with 70 to 90km per nth westerly winds blowing directly at us on a 36-degree day and lit us up and it got out of control as I told them it would while I was begging them not to light it up. Also, I have trees that need to be lopped that are breaking off massive branches that are rotten by white ants but not allowed to drop them. I have spent the past 30 plus years planting for and protecting my koalas so I know what I'm talking about on this property, and I have been through 7 fires here, all of which the authorities came in and lit them and as usual left them thinking they were safe and next thing I'm fighting for my life. They spin c*** saying oh no it's too damp or it's too this and that, and then light on the most dangerous day you could pick. We could have done a hazard reduction burn in April or May here when it was perfect conditions and we would not have turned our beautiful land into a monoscape and lost everything and all the animals by lighting all 4 sides and trapping them in a hot fast fire ... Still waiting on the report for this fire that I will never see, we have been offered no assistance, even our urban fire crews that were called into help said it should not have been lit, our own rural fire crew were not even advised it was happening until I phoned them to abuse them. Our state and federal governments are trying to cover their backsides in all this and the media are helping them"
Three Cheers for the Bush Fires' Volunteer Heroes (07 January 2020)
"You have probably seen plenty of news reports, but perhaps you didn't know much about the Rural Fire Service. It's manned on the ground by volunteers, typically older men who are self-employed or retired. I chatted to a few of them in Mittagong, in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, on Sunday evening. They were about to drive home to Rooty Hill, a Sydney suburb nearly two hours' drive from Mittagong, after a long shift fighting fires. This year, for the first time, the self-employed fire fighters who have lost income will be financially compensated. Most will receive nothing beyond thanks and friendly smiles and personal satisfaction for weeks of strenuous work in hot, smoky, dangerous conditions. They are supported by helicopter and light-plane pilots who risk their lives water-bombing fires and houses to protect them moments before fire reaches them..."
"Australian police investigating the bushfires have arrested more than 180 alleged arsonists in the past few months. But apparently they forgot to send the memo to Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, both of whom insisted in their Golden Globes acceptance speeches that the Australian bushfires were in fact caused by 'climate change'..."
Australia Bushfires - Is Blaming Greens a Conspiracy Theory? (05 January 2020)
"About 60,000 km² of forest area and farmland has been burned to a crisp so far in what are probably the most devastating wildfires in Australia's recent history. Hundreds of thousands of farm animals have died in the blazes, dozens of people have been killed, many are missing and it's estimated that a total of nearly half a billion wild animals have died. Entire ecosystems have been razed, even down to the microbes in the soil. It will take many, many years for the forests to recover, assuming they do. Completely without shame, remorse or self awareness, not to mention 'evidence' (Gaia forbid that climate fanatics should ever be required to produce evidence!) Greens and climate activists have leapt upon this human and environmental tragedy to claim that it is a manifestation of the 'climate crisis'. The Brighten Belle, Lucas the Loony herself, has waded in in typical fashion:..."
Australian Apocalypse (03 January 2020)
"The Australian bushfires, closing in on communities with terrifying ferocity, present a truly apocalyptic scenario. Our hearts go out to the nation ... and we pray for rain to douse the inferno as it encircles the sprawling city of Sydney, where the traditional New Year firework display went ahead despite petition signed by a quarter-of-a-million people - a grossly insensitive decision by any account. A more appropriate response would be to call for national prayer..."
What You Need to Know About the Bushfires in Australia (03 January 2020)
"Horror bushfires have been burning this land from before we even got here. Just because everyone has a camera in their pocket in 2020 to capture the horror, doesn't mean it never happened before. How do you imagine Black Thursday bushfires in 1851 or Black Sunday in 1955 looked before iPhone X was released. Even just ten years ago, Black Saturday bushfires killed 173 people in Victoria. So let's cut the c*** ... You don't care about the people affected, the firefighters or our country. You care about your vile, hateful, spiteful politics..."
YOUTUBE: The TRUTH About Bushfires in Australia (02 January 2020)
Viewers' comments: "Those who stopped the back burning need to be sued for loss of property and jailed for the loss of lives" / "Agenda 2030 forcing people off their land and into smart cities" / "We put CO2 into green houses on farms in Europe to increase the size of produce and it also helps to improve soil moisture. It is faming 101" / "These fires are designed to funnel Australia's rural population into the big cities following the UN's own Agenda 21 document" / "In Canada the fires we experienced these past several years have been blamed on climate change when the reality is they all were acts of God or human stupidity" / "Media cashing in on victims to push a political climate change message... it's disgusting" / Fires are a necessary catastrophe to allow new growth. Been happening since earth's creation"
Environmentalists Made Australia's Bush Fires Worse (02 January 2020)
"Australia is on fire, at least 17 people have been killed, hundreds of homes have been destroyed, and an estimated half-billion animals - both livestock and wildlife - have been burned alive. The area burned in the bush fires so far is six billion hectares - six times the area burned in last year's Amazon rainforest fires and 60 times the area burned in California. The stories and images that have emerged from Australia are vivid and dramatic ... But let us not allow the heartbreak and the emotion to distract us from the truth about this natural disaster: it has nothing whatsoever to do with 'climate change'...
...The people most responsible for the disastrous and dangerous policy preventing Australian home-owners from clearing their own land are the shrill, bullying, anti-scientific, anti-human activists of the green movement ... Australia's bush fires have nothing whatsoever to do with climate change..."
Green Ideas Must Take Blame for Deaths (12 February 2009)
"It wasn't climate change which killed as many as 300 people in Victoria last weekend. It wasn't arsonists. It was the unstoppable intensity of a bushfire, turbo-charged by huge quantities of ground fuel which had been allowed to accumulate over years of drought. It was the power of green ideology over government to oppose attempts to reduce fuel hazards before a megafire erupts, and which prevents landholders from clearing vegetation to protect themselves. So many people need not have died so horribly. The warnings have been there for a decade ... Governments appeasing the green beast have ignored numerous state and federal bushfire inquiries over the past decade, almost all of which have recommended increasing the practice of 'prescribed burning'..."

"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"
