Just my luck to live in an age of gradual global warming.Angry Gradual global cooling would suit me fine.

I'm hardly a prude marble, my observation is simple - you make no sense, regardless of your level of inebriation ... you also have no credibility, based on your own standards ... too old, too stupid.

that argument is always put up, no denying it, but is that a reason not to do the right thing and hope every other country does the same ?

Hope? Nobody cares what Australia does Whale, not even the refugees and immigrants - they just come for the welfare - similarly, the UN and the Pacific Island nations are happy to browbeat us, so long as they get their Billions. Most countries are not meeting their Paris Agreement targets - we are, and ironically, so is Trump's USA, even though they pulled out - all those countries care about is their lifestyle. Look at Paris itself! ... ironically, all of the protests sparked by an increase in fuel taxes, designed to reduce emissions!!! Do you think that China and India will do ANYTHING to reduce emissions over the next 12 years - in fact, they will go up as they are committed to hundreds more coal fired plants - and if there is not a clear viable renewable solution then, who will force them to reduce CO2 ... do you think there is a chance they will just do as they please? China will be the biggest economy on the planet by then, with the strongest strategic defence capabilities ... who is going to push them around? 

... oh, and btw, the "warming" simply isn't happening at the alarmist rates promised, and the catastrophic outcomes just keep on failing to materialise.Ouch

We ARE having blackouts though ... and ridiculously high power bills, considering the billions of dollars that the likes of Alex Turnbull and his Dad's rent-seeking mates are pocketing from subsidies ...

Almost everyone believes in global warming ,young people anyway, but ask them how much the world has heated in the last 140 years ,they don't know.   The world has not heated 1 degree in that time,the last 17 years zero heating.

No. Although the weather feels pretty much the same as it was 50 years ago, I don't know that the temperature hasn't really changed at all, in spite of all of the catastrophic predictions from the Climate Alarmists - I only have confirmation of that after I read the IPCC Apology Report.

Did you see her during the SOTU? Looked like she was stuck in a room full of people talking Japanese and kept asking the chick next to her to translate.

Bill might not need to fund his Climate Change Policy at all!

Sorry Global Warming Alarmists, The Earth Is Cooling


Climate change itself is already in the process of definitively rebutting climate alarmists who think human use of fossil fuels is causing ultimately catastrophic global warming.  That is because natural climate cycles have already turned from warming to cooling, global temperatures have already been declining for more than 10 years, and global temperatures will continue to decline for another two decades or more.

That is one of the most interesting conclusions to come out of the seventh International Climate Change Conference sponsored by the Heartland Institute, held last week in Chicago.  I attended, and served as one of the speakers, talking about The Economic Implications of High Cost Energy.

The conference featured serious natural science, contrary to the self-interested political science you hear from government financed global warming alarmists seeking to justify widely expanded regulatory and taxation powers for government bodies, or government body wannabees, such as the United Nations.  See for yourself, as the conference speeches are online.

What you will see are calm, dispassionate presentations by serious, pedigreed scientists discussing and explaining reams of data.  In sharp contrast to these climate realists, the climate alarmists have long admitted that they cannot defend their theory that humans are causing catastrophic global warming in public debate.  With the conference presentations online, let’s see if the alarmists really do have any response.

I could list far more, however this should do in relation to this cr@p "Institute" largely funded as it is by the fossil fuel and tobacco industries:

The Heartland Institute is an American conservative and libertarian public policy think tank founded in 1984 and based in Arlington Heights, Illinois. The Institute conducts work on issues including education reform, government spending, taxation, healthcare, tobacco policy, global warminghydraulic fracturing, information technology, and free-market environmentalism.

In the 1990s, the Heartland Institute worked with the tobacco company Philip Morris to attempt to discredit the health risks of secondhand smoke and to lobby against smoking bans. In the decade after 2000, the Heartland Institute became a leading promoter of climate change denialIt rejects the scientific consensus on climate change.

I thought it would make you happy PT, since Bill could just quote this, and then he could stop answering all those questions about how much his Climate Alarm Policies will cost ... 

What was that? ... he hasn't?? ... none of them!!!??? Embarrassed

Why don't they re run the concerns about Global Warming from the 1960's / 70's,   when 10 years ahead the wonderful Scientists predicted doom in a decade.     . We were to be starving to death , wearing gas masks , by 1975 , then 1980 , 1995 ...........   before the pending Ice Age got a run ..
Tasmania was to sink and float away ....   
Bondi beach was moving to Lithgow .        YES , the same scientists who want cows to be removed before we gasp our last.
   Talk about Religion as being a delusion , Climate Change sits there as just as big a daydream.
