    Keep up the fantastic work Paul.
    I think it will take many years more to stop the madness but I truly believe the tide has started to turn in our favour.

    Thanks for all your good work.
    The tide of disinformation and media apathy and opposition is being turned back by your tireless efforts.

    We have time and we have reality on our side, these are two HUGE allies that can never be underestimated.

    THERE IS NO SUCH WORD AS “X”MAS! WHEN YOU TAKE CHRIST OUT OF CHRISTMAS IT BECOMES JUST ANOTHER DAY LIKE ANY OTHER!

      Well no.
      It is said that when the Emperor Constantine had his great vision that caused him to convert to Christianity, he saw the Greek letters Chi and Rho intertwined. Chi is written as an ‘X’ and Rho is written as a ‘P’, but they are the first two letters of the Greek word Christ ‘savior’. ‘XP’ is sometimes used to stand for Christ. Sometimes X is used alone. This is the case in the Chi (X) abbreviation for Christ in Xmas. Thus, Xmas is not directly a way of secularizing the holiday, but since ‘X’ is not Chi in English, we read the word as X-mas and see no connection with Christ.

      But just for you Lone, Merry Christmas!

    Paul,
    Great work! Much appreciated in this corner of Denmark where we need to have someone like you lampooning the absurdities brought on the hapless Danish consumers and tax payers by Danish politics!

    Happy Xmas Paul. You are making a real difference by enlightening people to the nonsense being propagated by the mix of self interested, ignorant, fraudulent people who are using bogus climate change as a means of elitist political control, aggrandisement and personal wealth creation. Keep it up!, and thank You!

    If you read the links and well researched blog posts, you’ll learn something, I can’t sing your praises higher than that Mr. Homewood, please pretty please endeavour to maintain the grade and the comments will continue to fly the standard.

    Happy Chrissy to all on here, and to you canny lad! Mr. Paul Homewood.

    The X in Christmas is quite acceptable. Medieval in origin I believe! X is a cross, and is also the sign often called criss cross not the letter x, after all.

    Merry Christmas from a cold mid summer Christchurch New Zealand.

    I had a fantasy as I was listening to Radio 4 that this time next year you might be one of the New Year guest editors helping the listeners come to terms with the scandal which had been revealed in 2017.

    A belated Happy Xmas, Paul. It’s thanks to your considerable efforts – in particular demonstrating the enormous costs for zero gain – that has better enabled me (an ordinary Joe working within an industry priding and preening itself on ‘green’ credentials) to keep hammering away at colleagues’ understandable base-level ignorance and acceptance. Probably about one in ten gets it, two seem interested whilst the remainder are either ambivalent or spout the AGW mantra. More fools them given biannual bonuses are determined upon profit and waste disposal costs are rapidly rocketing…

    Family members enlightenment is proving difficult. Scotland’s current energy ‘policy’ direction is ruinous, predicated upon interconnector feeds subsidised by the wider UK. Like most folks, baseload dispatchability via thermal generation is seen as old hat stuff. Madness.

    Apparently, there’s a new ‘Scottish Climate Change Declaration’ due 2017.

    2016 was a good year for the world’s population at large via Brexit and Trump aided by a new information age of which you’re part. More power to your elbow across 2017.

    May the “creative fire” in the core of each of us ring in harmony with the “creative fire” in the core of the Sun in the New Year:

    Thank you for your tireless and wonderful work. It gives me clarity of thought, educates me, sometimes shocks me, overwhelms me, but most of all gives me hope that truth and persistence will win the day!
    I pray that this upcoming year be blessed for you and your family.
