For all those ardent Warministas out there (and by-now avowed sceptics – like me), this is what any future debate about the human impact on our climate should resemble. “Only connect” said Forster. At least these four are willing to try. Unfortunately, for many, mainly of the ‘settled science’, AGW brigade, (whatever their reasons), even that small step towards a necessary synthesis is a step far too far.

I’m quite proud that my (sadly curtailed) rip of this performance by the great man, Lord Monckton, in Australia a month or so ago has now been watched by nearly 6000 people and commented on by just shy of 100 (including me).

This particular thought disease, ‘Man Made Climate Change’ or whatever the dangerous zealots are peddling it as now, is an especially vicious example of something we humans experience from time to time, thanks to our insatiable small-mindedness and eternal stupidity. But thanks to the apparent re-emergence, if not resurgence, of collective rational thought since Climategate, this latest example of the scale of the capacity of humans for superstitious folly is definitely on its last legs.

I think we’re finally beginning to move on, socially and scientifically. And that’s a very good thing, because when this ugly lunacy has been defeated, we can once again begin to focus on genuine environmental issues (the things I was brought up to care about), like saving the rainforests, saving endangered species and, ultimately, saving ourselves from watermelon, AGW, misanthropic lunatics who seem to prefer mass landscape vandalism over genuine environmentalism. They’re basically Marxists masquerading as concerned citizens. We stopped that before; we’ll stop it again.

But given how deep they’ve managed to penetrate our society, however, we’re going to need not just better science, but a hell of a lot of luck if we are ever even to hope to cure our society of their corrosive, possibly deadly, disease.

I think we’ll get that luck. We did in the past, and we will in the future. Maybe luck has something to do with being right – and determined!

Not “should be going” you will note (when you look at the video below), but “is going”. The modal and tense choices are very telling and, I can guarantee, deliberate. Railway engineer and non-climate scientist, but very dodgy chief of the IPCC scam-mongers, Rajendra Pachauri “is going” to jail, says Lord Monckton. A philosopher and logician as precise and vigilant when it comes to language as Christopher Monckton would never have said, publicly or privately, that in this way unless he already knew there was strong enough evidence to permit him to say it without inviting some type of legal challenge.

It’s fair to say, therefore, that things are about to get a lot better for us, the long-abused, stolen-from taxpayer – and much worse for Pachauri and his crew. That would, of course, also implicate this Labour government. What a surprise.

If in doubt, vote them out!

James Delingpole, citing Bishop Hill, is as gobsmacked as the latter by a professional analysis of the Fourth IPCC Assessment Report (you know, the one with all the “Gates” in it) by a scientist named Andrew Lacis, a colleague of arch warmist James Hansen at GISS, and someone who in no way whatsoever could be branded a “sceptic.” Here’s an astonishing bit:

There is no scientific merit to be found in the Executive Summary. The presentation sounds like something put together by Greenpeace activists and their legal department. The points being made are made arbitrarily with legal sounding caveats without having established any foundation or basis in fact. The Executive Summary seems to be a political statement that is only designed to annoy greenhouse skeptics. Wasn’t the IPCC Assessment Report intended to be a scientific document that would merit solid backing from the climate science community – instead of forcing many climate scientists into having to agree with greenhouse skeptic criticisms that this is indeed a report with a clear and obvious political agenda. Attribution can not happen until understanding has been clearly demonstrated. Once the facts of climate change have been established and understood, attribution will become self-evident to all. The Executive Summary as it stands is beyond redemption and should simply be deleted.

The entire thing, naturally, was buried by the IPCC thus:

Rejected. [Executive Summary] summarizes Ch 9, which is based on the peer reviewed literature.

It is quite difficult to frame in one’s mind the kind of mentalities and egos at work here. Suffice to say, their levels of by now well-documented obscene corruption, which has already led to the starvation of millions (thanks mainly to the cultivation of subsidised biofuel crops on good agricultural land instead of food), means that we can safely conclude that they will stoop to anything to keep their hideous misanthropic ideology alive – and their own pathetic ‘careers’ – for as long as they possibly can. This is going to be one hell of a battle – but it is one that common sense, reason and good science cannot afford to lose.

Remember, also, that this Labour government has been, and remains, one of the major villains of this piece. We can start to correct the world’s current rational imbalance by ejecting it when we are finally given the opportunity. But once the Tories are in power, if they don’t immediately reassess their ridiculous commitment to this unhinged – and now unravelling – politically-motivated (it’s mainly inspired by anti-capitalist people-haters) dogma, then they should be next. Better they correct their policies now, then, in a timely and honest fashion.

But first things first. First, we must deal with Labour. I’m utterly confident that the British people will do just that, and good on them for it.

Andrew Neil, who has recently come out on his blog on the side of reason, gave John Hirst an absolute grilling on the Daily Politics this morning. More please! Hat tip to Climategate.com, which provided the clip and comments:

Oh this is good, really good. We did a story two days ago, UK Met Office’s enormously wrong weather predictions earn department big pay increases, and it turns out now even the BBC is questioning The Met Office’s weather forecasting record, and record salaries. And questioning surprisingly hard.

In this clip, Andrew Neal grills Met Office chief John Hirst.

The best line (4:08) of the video and perhaps of the year: “Since you can’t the summer or the winter right in your forecasts, why should we give any credence to your forecast to what the temperature will be in the 2050 or 2020, which is what you do.”

This is the BBC? Sound more like Fox News, and we love it!

It’s good that finally – finally – these guys are starting to be held to account for their lies. No sign of Hirst’s bonus being taken away from him, though. And how long, I wonder, before Neil is silenced by the warmists at the BBC? It’s possible.

Incidentally, Climategate.com is an American blog, in case you were wondering (no reason why you should be, of course).

Anyway, here’s the vid.:


[By the way, you’ll have noticed Hirst’s slip at 3.56-9. He says the science of meteorology (and therefore, presumably, climatology) is still a ‘developmental science’. Oh really? Then we can take it that the science is far from ‘settled’ then. Curious.]

…and it’s still getting colder. But it is certainly beautiful – beautiful and deadly, unfortunately.

I’ll tell you the truth. The climate has certainly changed over the past few years – it’s got significantly colder. Why? No one knows.

But while our governments continue to follow the corrupt scientists still stubbornly pushing the debunked theory that was anthropogenic global warming, people will just have to fend for themselves. The entire Northern Hemisphere is frozen and idiot governments around the world still refuse to halt the suicidal policy of emissions capping.

Meanwhile, just to meet ridiculous, arbitrary targets derived from junk science and pushed by misanthropic delusionals, we have been growing less food, replacing crops with subsidised biofuel for instance, just when that food was needed most. Result: scarcity, record grain prices and, inevitably, starvation among the world’s poorest. We are discouraged from burning coal – which is still plentiful, especially where I am (and the ‘cleanest’ in the world). Result: energy dependency, massively high fuel and energy prices and, inevitably, death among the nation’s poorest and most vulnerable. We waste vast amounts of resources on alternative energy systems that don’t work. Result: well, look around you. If this cold snap goes on much longer, we’ll run out of energy altogether, having failed to fix the roof while the sun was, quite literally, shining. Again, the nation’s poorest and most vulnerable (especially the old) will simply die off.

So you see, the ecofascists of this nation and this world already have a hell of a lot of blood on their hands and nothing they say or do from now until doomsday (itself a concept with which they are tellingly obsessed) will ever compensate for their crimes against humanity.

The sooner these criminals are brought to book, the sooner the world can be fed, warm – and sane – again.

PS: If you’re a fan of the ice, you could always join these guys’ protest against global warming…

Hat tip to James Delingpole for flagging up in his latest blog post (about how the warmists and alarmists have just taken one step closer to prosecution for their deceptions and frauds, at least in the USA) an excellent new AGW debunking blog called, with refreshing bluntness, simply “Climategate.” It does exactly what it says on the tin. If you are a fan of the truth, then check it out – you’ll find the links in the sidebar. If you prefer the lies, however, then you are already well catered for (try ‘realclimate’ or the BBC, for instance).

“Climategate’s” subtitle, by the way,”Anthropogenic global warming, history’s biggest scam,” fits in very nicely with Christopher Booker’s latest superb remarks on the subject of the Met Office’s role in “history’s biggest scam.” You can find it in today’s Sunday Telegraph, here.

As for me, I’m sitting in front of my computer right now trying desperately to warm up after having walked my dog in sub zero temperatures down by the seaside. It’s bloody freezing where I am – on the south coast of Wales. (What, in January? Never!)
