Sixth Carbon Budget Does Not Add Up!

When I looked at the CCC’s Sixth Carbon Budget last December, I concentrated on costings.

However, given recent revelations about their wildly optimistic assumptions about wind power, I thought I would take closer look at their Power Sector calculations:

Let’s begin with their 2050 capacity scenarios. I’ll focus on the Balanced Pathway as the central case, though other scenarios demand even greater electrification:

The overwhelming majority (91%) of Brits feel a personal level of responsibility in the fight against climate change, a new Ford-commissioned study has found.

Public Want A Referendum On Net Zero

October 27, 2021

By Paul Homewood

 

Poll after poll has purportedly shown that the public is in favour climate action.

Until they find out how much it is going to cost them anyway!

The British public are in favour of a referendum on the Government’s net zero proposals, a new poll has shown.

Forty two per cent of adults said they supported a vote on the plan, whilst 30 per cent opposed it, and 28 per cent did not declare a preference, according to a YouGov survey conducted this month.

When the “don’t knows” were excluded from the results, a majority of 58 per cent wanted a ballot on the issue.

The survey showed that of those who expressed a preference, more than 50 per cent of each category polled supported a referendum on net zero. This included 18- to 24-year-olds, middle class voters, Londoners, Remainers, both men and women, and Liberal Democrat backers.

When even Lib Dim voters want a referendum, the green agenda must be in big trouble!

Joanna Lumley Calls For Wartime Rationing To Tackle Climate Change

Joanna Lumley has called for a return to rationing to combat climate change.

The Absolutely Fabulous star suggested legislation is needed ‘for the sake of this beautiful Earth’.

‘These are tough times,’ she said. ‘We might even have to go back to some kind of rationing, where you’re given a certain number of points and it’s up to you how to spend them – whether it’s buying a bottle of whisky or flying in an aeroplane.’

Miss Lumley, 75, who has campaigned against single-use plastic, also said people should cut back on weekend breaks abroad and stop eating meat.

What “weekend breaks abroad”? It shows just how out of touch these luvvies are, that they think normal people regularly jet off to Spain every weekend.

And we can safely assume that she and her chums won’t be ditching their lifestyle any time soon, and living like the rest of us.

Biden’s Climate Agenda Dies In The Senate

Wall Street Journal’s podcast on Biden’s Clean Electricity Plan is well worth a listen:

You may recall how Biden’s green agenda was gutted back in June, which I posted on here. In short, he had planned to spend $2 trillion on his clean energy plan, including massive subsidies for wind and solar.

However his attempts to include all of this in his Infrastructure Bill earlier this summer collapsed in the face of opposition not only from Republicans but also moderate Democrats.

India has hit another record high for production of food grains this year:

Output is measured from July to June, so this year’s record is a reflection of the bountiful monsoon last year.

Crop Failures & The “Climate Disaster”

We looked at this phony Guardian report the other day:

One section deals with what it calls crop failure:

It claims that once-a-decade droughts are becoming more frequent, in comparison with 1850-1900! This apparently comes from the IPCC, but who was counting droughts in the 19thC?

As with disaster databases, it is only in recent years that organisations have been set up to monitor humanitarian crises and provide aid. A hundred years ago, there was no internet, television or mobile phones to relay the news.

A famine in Madagascar would simply have happened with being noticed.

The Climate Crisis in The 1640s

October 26, 2021

By Paul Homewood

 

I mentioned the fact the other day that 500,000 died during the winter of 1642/3 in Japan, due to a winter of unusual severity.

This is an astonishing figure by any measure:

But the climate crisis in that period was not confined to Japan only. The following paragraph from Global Crisis gives a flavour of what was a widespread crisis in much of Asia:

There Is No Climate Crisis–David Craig

David Craig’s book, “There is no climate crisis”, was published earlier this year. It is well worth taking a look at.

He hired an ad van to promote it in Manchester during the Conservative Conference there last month:

Unfortunately when he tried to hire the van again in London, he received this reply from the company, Gorilla Marketing:

 

Thank you for your email.

After due consideration, unfortunately we will not be able to fulfil future bookings for your book as the content of the banner message is just too inflammatory.

This resulted in our driver being both verbally abused throughout the course of the Manchester operation and then physically assaulted by a member of the public. An incident attended by the police and for which I understand a man was arrested.

If you can find another contractor who is prepared to undertake the work, we would be happy to arrange for the banners to be delivered to them

So much for free speech!

Have You Seen The Guardian’s Climate Disaster? It Appears To Have Gone Missing!

October 24, 2021

The more the push back against Net Zero grows, the more desperate the propaganda becomes:

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/ng-interactive/2021/oct/14/climate-change-happening-now-stats-graphs-maps-cop26

The Earth is already becoming unlivable, they claim! Funny, perhaps somebody should tell the 7.9 billion people living on it.

It’s the usual mix of cherry picking heatwaves, floods, droughts, crop failures and wildfires, dressed up in fraudulent fancy graphics, and assisted by the hopelessly discredited Katherine Hayhoe.

So let’s look at some examples:
