    Roger Helmer – a voice of sanity in a mad green world. He said everything that needs to be said about the climate change scam in a few succinct sentences. Basically, trillions are going to be wasted for no benefit – follow that money and see who the big scammers are.

    Roger Helmer came and gave evidence at one of our wind farm public inquiries. He was there to counter the nonsense spouted by the Green Party and he was outstanding as a witness. Unfortunately the Inspector hadn’t a clue and so ignored the evidence.

    Euan Mearns has just blogged his analysis of the energy section of UKIP’s manifesto.

    Saw on Twitter ..LibMob were calling for Helmer to be banned from BBC and R4
    “Why are #wato interviewing extremist nutcases like Helmer?”

      Note how an official BBC account phrased that appearance with loaded words
      \\ can’t hide his joy //
      Would they have ever said
      “Labour’s Ed Miliband can’t hide his joy at the SIGNING of the Paris climate agreement.” ?

    It is incredible how intolerant the proponents of “climate change” are of other people’s views.

    I just loved the chick who stated that Donald Trump was “economically illiterate.” Not only is he a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Finance, but is a successful worldwide businessman. And that, along with his rapier instincts, is why he understands the world scene and its players.

    So nice of the blonde to keep interrupting Mr. Helmer in an attempt to disrupt his thoughts. I laughed at his oh, so prescient observation that President Trump had the boldness to point out that “the king had no clothes.”

    Folks need to understand (including PM Mays) that there were a whole bunch of us who voted for Donald Trump and that is why he comes via Air Force One today. Among his several campaign promises was to withdraw the US from the Paris Accord, repeal Obamacare, build the wall on the southern border, say “no” to TPP, renegotiate NAFTA and reign in the EPA to restore mining jobs and keep the environmental wolves from the natural gas door. He said these things during countless rallies attended by 5-20,000+ (depending upon venue size) to thunderous applause. His policy speeches contained the same points and promises. He is keeping them much to the chagrin of the left and the delight of his supporters. So the greenies have their panties in a wad. Just know that when they blast President Trump, they are also blasting the millions of Americans who enthusiastically voted for him.

      The shock for most politicians is that he is actually doing what he promised he would. Other politicians take note.

    Dr’s, Willie Soon, Judith Curry, Fred Singer, Richard Lindzen, alongside, Peter Lilley Roger Helmer, people of easy charm, wit, scholarly and steeped in knowledge, and………….. you’d be hard pressed to meet a nicer bunch of people.

    Their only sin, they aver caution and measured response. Much as I love, respect and admire them, they’re a tad staid for my tastes.

    Hmm, oh yes, I tend, more in the vanguard with Mark Steyn, James Delingpole and the like.

    Climate warming Yeah, yeah, yeah CO₂ is a ‘blanket gas’ sure the Temps have risen slightly, naturally…………. since, the LIA but the idea that mankind’s input of ±5% is having something to do with warming is a preposterous supposition. A big lie, based on C19th two dimensional experimentation and a load of crap statistics, there is no science involved, just lots of modular prognostication and that folks is, not science – no, it’s the modern equivalence of: rune reading.

    Set agin, Mann, the cesspit of CRU, GISS, NOAA, NSIDC et al………the likes of that madman Wadham, and Jim ‘close the windows’ Hansen……… the pinched faced megalomaniacs promulgators of the great green scam……………..

    like erm………..Christina Figueres:

    At a news conference last week in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.

    Intolerance begets totalitarianism. which just about sums up the UN these days. Those authoritarian scum suckers, Michael E Mann and Christina Figueres personify this sort of nutter, as she says “you will be made to alter your ways” – no ifs nor buts, mother theresa, all the Westminster claque are of the same mind, therefore she and they are damned with the rest of these dictatorial green headbangers.
    You see, i don’t mind much what they believe, nah it’s a free world……………I only do become agitated when they insist that I join their green project – whether I want to or not and FFS how many more times……….without enforced taxpayer subsidy: there would be no ‘green industry’!!!

    Orwell nailed it, maybe he even foresaw it:

    “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

    My only quibble with Roger Helmer……well maybe not with him personally, why don’t UKIP nail their anti global wankerati, anti alarmist colours to the mast?

    UKIP…….. why the timid reticence? Jump up and tell the world, “fuck to global warming!” shock them – be different and offer the UK electorate a real choice…………..!!

      Thanks Athelstan — but I’ve been nailing those colours to the mast for five years! The problem is getting the airtime, so I was grateful to Trump for prompting the BBC to put me on national radio twice yesterday. But OK. I’ll try harder!

    Yes, Helmer made some good points. But, at the risk of boring everyone (yet again), I’ll repeat my view that the basic problem with the Paris Agreement is that it exempts developing countries, responsible for over 65% of emissions, from any obligation – legal or moral – to reduce those emissions, putting the entire burden on the West – essentially the US and EU28: LINK.

    Here’s an extract from Trump’s announcement:

    “I cannot in good conscience support a deal that punishes the United States … while imposing no meaningful obligations on the world’s leading polluters. For example, under the agreement, China will be able to increase these emissions by a staggering number of years — 13. They can do whatever they want for 13 years. Not us. India makes its participation contingent on receiving billions and billions and billions of dollars in foreign aid from developed countries. There are many other examples. But the bottom line is that the Paris accord is very unfair, at the highest level, to the United States.”

    .

    Exactly.

      Interesting Robin
      The BBC has written pages on the event
      But Googling shows me they don’t quote any of that

      No results found for site:bbc.co.uk “while imposing no meaningful obligations”.

      The Guardian has a”Fact Check” page, which doesn’t really debunk anything

      What about BBC Reality Check ? Just tackles
      How much is spent on climate fund?
      It first tries to play down claims of big COSTS
      “The US has spent more than any other country.
      However, there is no obligation for countries to pay into the fund, as it is voluntary.”

      Then says “As Mr Trump noted in his speech, one goal of the Paris Agreement was to raise $100bn (£77.7bn) a year by 2020”
      That seems a contradiction to me.
      Of course the US would have ended up putting in tens of $bilions/year

        Trump went on to say:

        China will be allowed to build hundreds of additional coal plants. So we can’t build the plants, but they can, according to this agreement. India will be allowed to double its coal production by 2020. Think of it: India can double their coal production. We’re supposed to get rid of ours.

        Has anyone quoted that?

    • June 4, 2017 7:11 am

      Robin in the last week seems BBC didn’t quote any part of that
      \\No results found for site:bbc.co.uk “China will be allowed “.//
      etc.

    Maybe things will change, subtly, at the BBC. I noticed this week on BBC World Service (2nd June, around 5 a.m. BST) that Marc Morano was given a chance to support Trump’s action, and in his usual forceful style. And his slot wasn’t framed in the obligatory ‘here is the wacko outlier view’ context that it would have been previously (indeed, may well not have reached the airwaves via BBC at all!)

      They have allowed views in favour of Trump’s decision on the BBC News channel but they usually counter those by showing at the same time, the usual video of what they consider global “climate change”, i,e. floods, icebergs calving off ice sheets, dried up river beds, to put in the minds of the viewer, this guy doesn’t believe in climate change but here is proof that it’s happening.
      It’s funny how they never show video of normal weather when proponents of “climate change” are talking.

    It would appear that the Germans are thinking about what Trump has done.

    Roger Helmer,
    Review the last 200 years or more of NATURAL climate variation and not that currently there is —
    No increase in storms or hurricanes.
    No increases in droughts.
    No increase in sea-level rise.
    No evidence of Dr Hansen ‘runaway greenhouse effect’
    No abnormal climate variations outside of what is natural!

    Talk of CO2 controlling weather or climate is UN mediated BS, it is not science!

    Yes, Roger’s responses were spot-on but I don’t think Kearney was really listening. Most depressing was hearing, almost immediately afterwards, T. May strongly asserting her commitment to the Paris Accord and to so-called ‘Climate change’ policies. And prior to Helmer’s splendid contribution, the babblings of various airheads whom I doubt had any but the sketchiest knowledge of the Paris (voluntary) provisions and obligations.
