Susan Crockford has responded forcefully to the latest disinformation to come from Steve Amstrup and co:

Until now, my scientific paper post at PeerJ Preprints for review, about the failure of Steve Amstrup’s 2007 USGS polar bear survival model (Crockford 2017), has been formally ignored by Amstrup and his colleagues. But now Amstrup and his colleagues have taken to lying to the media about my analysis because he can’t refute it in a scholarly manner.

Delingpole: Government Watchdog Reprimands BBC for Telling Truth About Climate Change

April 13, 2018

Dellers reports on this week’s chilling attack on free speech from OFCOM:

In the U.S. – thanks largely to Donald Trump – the skeptics are winning the climate argument.

But in the rest of the Western world, skeptics are losing big time because, increasingly, their voices are being censored. Nowhere is this more painfully true than in the UK, where the BBC has now officially been reprimanded by a state watchdog for telling the truth about climate change.

Thankfully nobody was hurt:

A family were forced to flee their home after their hybrid car burst into flames while charging on the driveway.

Miles Freeman, 46, from Birmingham, was downstairs with fiance, Tanya Krupenko, 30, at around 10.30pm on Sunday evening, while their three children slept in their beds.

But after hearing the car alarm the couple discovered the £56,000 Volvo Hybrid XC90 engulfed in flames on their driveway, just feet away from the family home.

 

The £56,000 car was destroyed and caused £3,000 worth of damage to the family home in Birmingham (pictured are Miles Freeman holding baby Savannah, seven months, with fiance Ms Krupenko and their other children Olivia, 5, and Harrison, 5)

Emergency services arrived at the home within five minutes and were able to get the fire under control not before it burnt out the car

Mr Freeman claims he has been unable to get to bottom of how the fire started after buying the ex-demo car from the Johnson’s Volvo dealership, in Solihull, in October, last year

The fire caused damage to the garage and frontage of the house in Alcester Road, where five bedroom homes can cost up to £470,000.

Mr Freeman, who owns a battery recycling company, said: ‘We were making a cup of tea in the kitchen when we heard a noise from the front of the house.

‘But after looking out of the window we couldn’t believe the car was engulfed in flames.

Full story here.

 

Volvo have already promised to get out of conventional engined cars, with all new cars launched after 2019 to be electric or hybrid. This news will hardly help their new strategy.

This is the programme description:

 

Summary

Reporter Antony Barnett investigates a subsidised renewable energy industry that turns trees into fuel, and asks whether burning wood instead of coal is really an environmentally friendly answer to climate change. He travels to the forestlands of the south-eastern United States to find one source of this controversial ‘carbon-neutral’ fuel, and the biodiverse wetlands of Virginia and North Carolina, where millions of tonnes of wood are harvested and processed into pellets, which are burnt in one of Britain’s largest power stations.

Susan Crockford is a polar bear expert with a message that climate alarmists don’t want to hear: polar bear populations are thriving and are certainly in no danger from thinning summer sea ice supposedly caused by ‘man-made global warming.’

That’s why the alarmist establishment is currently trying destroy her.

Govt Threats Behind Smart Meter Bullying

The Mail reveals the true reason why energy firms are so keen for us to have smart meters – govt pressure:

 

image

Today, Money Mail launches a campaign to stop energy firms bullying customers into having a smart meter fitted in their homes.

We have been inundated with letters, emails and calls from readers who have felt pressured and intimidated into switching their analogue gas and electricity meters for digital versions.

The new devices — which show how much power and gas you’re using minute by minute and send that data to your supplier — are entirely optional and many people have legitimate reasons for rejecting them.

For example, nearly all the meters so far installed are ones that lose their smart functions if you switch providers.

Understandably, many readers want to wait until the devices are capable of working with any supplier before they make the swap.

There are plans to build the largest solar farm the UK has ever seen in Kent.

As the county pushes to reduce its carbon emissions in accordance with the Paris Agreement, people are looking for increasingly ambitious ways to produce renewable energy.

The Cleve Hill Solar Park, located near Faversham, will be more than three-and-a-half times the size of the current biggest solar farm.

This is everything we know about the plans and objections that have been raised against them.

Solar farms receive more cash from green subsidies than selling the energy they produce

The Mail lifts the lid on obscene solar subsidies:

Britain’s biggest solar farms receive more cash from green subsidies than from selling the electricity they produce, figures reveal.

Energy producers were encouraged to start solar farms with generous handouts funded by a ‘green levy’ on taxpayers’ bills.

But many of them now make the majority of their cash from the subsidy – instead of the electricity they produce.
