The news from sunny Bali that there is to be an international investigation into the conduct of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and its chairman Dr Rajendra Pachauri is indeed welcome.
I can smell the fresh paint already as the whitewash can is opened rather then the can of whoopass these criminals so richly deserve!
Put all the errors in the IPCC report together and it can be seen that, one after another, they tick off all the central, iconic issues the entire global warming fraud is built on.
Apart from those non-vanishing polar bears, no fears of climate change have been played on more insistently than these: the destruction of Himalayan glaciers and Amazonian rainforest; famine in Africa; fast-rising sea levels; the threat of hurricanes, droughts, floods and heatwaves all becoming more frequent.
All these alarms were given special prominence in that IPCC's 2007 report and each of them has now been shown to be based, not on hard evidence, but on scare stories, derived not from proper scientists but from environmental activists.
Those glaciers are not vanishing; the damage to the rainforest is not from climate change but logging and agriculture; African crop yields are more likely to increase than diminish; the modest rise in sea levels is slowing not accelerating; hurricane activity is lower than it was 60 years ago; droughts were more frequent in the past; there has been no increase in floods or heatwaves.
Furthermore, it has also emerged in almost every case that the decision to include these scare stories rather than hard scientific evidence was deliberate.
As several IPCC scientists have pointed out about the scare over Himalayan glaciers, for instance, those responsible for including it were well aware that proper science said something quite different.
But it was inserted nevertheless – because that was the story wanted by those in charge.
Yep! They would be the same people who are busily opening the cans of whitewash and hiring the painters to do the job!
Now where can I buy a couple of cans of whoopass?

They just don't get it, do they?
Despite one of the coldest winters recorded in the Northern Hemisphere the AGW pushers and their stooges are still pedaling their tired old lies ignoring facts like the report that follows from NEWS scotsman.com.
The number of red deer alone has almost trebled to 400,000 since the mid-1960s, leading to more competition for food. There are also more than 400,000 roe deer and 40,000 sika deer.
Robbie Kernahan, director of the Deer Commission for Scotland, said: "The commission is very concerned about the current situation, especially if we get a wet spring, which will compound the problem. This winter has been exceptional and access to forage has been a major problem. We are expecting substantial losses.
"It is important that estates continue to cull the weakest animals – but getting to them has been a problem. Shooting virtually stopped in January. There are concerns that estates will not be able to meet cull targets and that the stalking economy will be badly affected too."
Donald Fraser, the commission's deer officer for the North-east, said it was the worst conditions for deer for at least a decade. "Unless there is a thaw soon there will be a significant number of natural mortalities," he said. Mr Fraser said red and roe deer were particularly at risk as they could not reach their food of grass and heather, buried under several feet of snow and ice.

Al Gore Climate Whore?
"Mounting evidence suggests that claims of manmade global warming might turn out to be the greatest hoax in mankind's history. Immune and hostile to the evidence, President Barack Obama's administration and most of the U.S. Congress sides with Climate Czar Carol Browner, who says, "I'm sticking with the 2,500 scientists. These people have been studying this issue for a very long time and agree this problem is real."
The scientists whom Browner references are associated with the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Let's look some of what they told us. The 2007 IPCC report, which won them a Nobel Peace Prize, said that the probability of Himalayan glaciers "disappearing by the year 2035 and perhaps sooner is very high" as a result of manmade global warming.
Recently, IPCC was forced to retract their glacier disappearance claim, which was made on the basis of a non-scientific magazine article. When critics initially questioned the prediction, Rajendra Pachauri, IPCC's chairman, dismissed them as "voodoo scientists."
The IPCC also had to retract its claim that up to 40 percent of the Amazonian forests were at risk from global warming and would likely be replaced by "tropical savannas" if temperatures continued to rise.
Long denied by the warmers, Professor Jones admitted that the Medieval Warm Period (The years 800 to 1300.) might well had been as warm as the Current Warm Period (1975-present), or warmer, and that if it was, "then obviously the late-20th century warmth would not be unprecedented."
That suggests global warming may not be a manmade phenomenon. In any case, Professor Jones said that for the past 15 years, there has been no "statistically significant" global warming."
So if this is the case Mr Rudd, why are you mindlessly rushing us off the cliff of global warming like lemmings?
What is you agenda "Mr I'm Responsible"?
See the the article in full:
Paul Joseph Watson reports in Prison Planet that leaked policy documents reveal that the United Nations plans to create a “green world order” by 2012.
This will be enforced by a structure of global governance and funded by a gargantuan $45 trillion transfer of wealth from richer countries such as Australia, as the globalists’ insidious plan to centralize power, crush sovereignty while devastating the economy is exposed once again.
Maybe, just maybe, Barnaby Joyce may be on the right track about Australia's national debt where we, by our inaction in stopping our politicians, are responsible for socking future generations of Australians with crushing debt to repay.
These future generations will be told there is only one way to repay this debt and that is by higher taxation.
Sounds wonderful, doesn't it? Anyway enough of my comment. back to the report.
Using the justification of the vehemently debunked hoax that carbon dioxide is a deadly threat to the planet, the UN is already working to resurrect the failed Copenhagen agreement, with a series of new Copenhagen process negotiations set to take place in April, May and June.
Leaked planning documents (PDF) obtained by Fox News lift the lid on the UN’s plan to impose global governance by the time of their 2012 World Summit on Sustainable Development in Rio, which will mark the 20th anniversary since the notorious “Earth Summit” held in the same city.
“The new Rio summit will end, according to U.N. documents obtained by Fox News, with a “focused political document” presumably laying out the framework and international commitments to a new Green World Order,” reports Fox News’ George Russell.
“Just exactly what that environmental order will look like, and the extent of the immense financial commitments needed to produce it, are under discussion this week at a special session in Bali, Indonesia, of the United Nations Environment Program’s 58-nation “Governing Council/Global Ministerial Environmental Forum,” which oversees UNEP’s operations.”
The document outlines the globalist’s mission to enact a “radical transformation of the world economic and social order” by putting “a new treaty in place as the capstone of the Green World Order”.

Maybe Al Gore's been advised by legal counsel to lie low. He may be the leader of the anthropogenic global warming (AGW) movement, but he's not defending it in public, not even when it's falling apart and his new fortune is based upon it.
Over the years, American tax dollars were poured down the fantasyland AGW "rat hole." Sooner or later, Al Gore needs to answer some hard questions.
This is the "man" that Rudd the Dud and Garrett the Parrot quote when they say "the science on global warming is settled" and Penny Wrong just follows the lead!

Good news: It was a normal US day in Sharon Springs, Kansas, when a Union Pacific crew boarded a loaded coal train for the long trek to Salina .
The Bad news: Just a few miles into the trip a wheel bearing became overheated and melted, letting a metal support drop down and grind on the rail, creating white hot molten metal droppings spewing down to the rail.
The Good news: A very alert crew noticed smoke about halfway back in the train and immediately stopped the train in compliance with the rules.
The Bad news: The train stopped with the hot wheel over a wooden bridge with creosote ties and trusses.
The crew tried to explain to higher-ups but were instructed not to move the train!
They were instructed "The Rules" prohibit moving the train when a part is defective!
Ya gotta follow "The Rules"!
“The science regarding climate change is settled, and human activity is responsible for global warming,” Jackson said, adding that the EPA needs more funding to ensure climate change legislation is passed.http://www.prisonplanet.com/epa-head-no-warming-since-1995-doesnt-mean-warming-isnt-occurring.html

Scientists have been forced to withdraw a study on projected sea level rise due to global warming after finding mistakes that undermined the findings.
The study, published in 2009 in Nature Geoscience, one of the top journals in its field, confirmed the conclusions of the 2007 report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It used data over the last 22,000 years to predict that sea level would rise by between 7cm and 82cm by the end of the century.
At the time, Mark Siddall, from the Earth Sciences Department at the University of Bristol, said the study "strengthens the confidence with which one may interpret the IPCC results". The IPCC said that sea level would probably rise by 18cm-59cm by 2100, though stressed this was based on incomplete information about ice sheet melting and that the true rise could be higher.
A formal retraction was required, rather than a correction, because the errors undermined the study's conclusion.
Catch the full story of another climate change lie by so called scientists. Many scientists are in on the Global warming fraud because of the BIG dollars available for any research that "proves" global warming is caused by human activity!
There is no money available for research that disproves humans are causing global warming!
That is interesting, isn't it?
Kind of makes you think twice every time one of the "scientific" talking heads sprouts off!http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/feb/21/sea-level-geoscience-retract-siddall

Here is an excerpt from a Bad Boy Barnabys press release letting us know how much our children and their children will have to repay.
"Australian Commonwealth Government Securities outstanding, as of the 8th December, 2009 was $115.71 billion. By the 5th January, 2010 the amount had risen to $ 117.31 billion outstanding. By the start of February, it had risen again to $120.61 billion. Now, not even midway through February, it has risen again to $122.01 billion."
Ok with that in mind here we go with Death of America Part 2.
American political and economic leaders have sounded the alarm for years about the red ink rising in reports on the federal government's fiscal health. But now the problem of mounting national debt is worse than it ever has been before with -- potentially dire consequences for taxpayers, according to a report by the nonpartisan Peterson-Pew Commission on Budget Reform.
Over the past year alone, the amount the U.S. government owes its lenders has grown to more than half the country's entire economic output, or gross domestic product.
Even more alarming, experts say, is that those figures will climb to an unprecedented 200 percent of GDP by 2038 without a dramatic shift in course.
"Within 12 years…the largest item in the federal budget will be interest payments on the national debt," said former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker. "[They are] payments for which we get nothing."
Economic forecasters say future generations of Americans could have a substantially lower standard of living than their predecessors' for the first time in the country's history if the debt is not brought under control.
By letting our incompetent politicians and their hidden advisors continue taking us down the American path we are lowering our own standard of living and that of our children and their children.
Government debt, which fuels the risk of inflation, could make everyday Australian's savings worth less. Higher interest rates would make it harder for consumers and businesses to borrow. Wages would remain stagnant and fewer jobs would be created. The government's ability to cut taxes or provide a safety net would also be weakened, economists say.
Meanwhile back in America:
In a recent ABC News poll, 87 percent of Americans said they are concerned about the federal budget deficit and national debt, and most strongly disapprove of how their political leaders are handling the situation.
Ultimately, analysts say, solving the debt problem will likely require both tax hikes and spending cuts, along with broader structural reforms of the way government operates.
"Habitually spending more money than you make is irresponsible," said former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker. "Irresponsibly spending someone else's money when they're too young to vote or not born yet is immoral."
I would have to agree, but how long since a politician has been moral?
Back to climate change next post folks!

Another post that appears to have bugger all to do with climate change. However all this stuff is connected under a loose heading I call Social Engineering.
After reading this post you would wonder why Australian politicians from both parties slavishly push Australia toward the US lifestyle.
Why would our so called leaders want this to happen to us?
America is the richest nation in history, yet they now have the highest poverty rate in the industrialized world with an unprecedented amount of Americans living in dire straights and over 50 million citizens already living in poverty.
The Obama government has come up with clever ways to downplay all of these numbers, but the US has over 50 million people who need to use food stamps to eat, and a stunning 50 percent of U.S. children will use food stamps to eat at some point in their childhoods. Approximately 20,000 people are added to this total every day. In 2009, one out of five U.S. households didn't have enough money to buy food. In households with children, this number rose to 24 percent, as the hunger rate among U.S. citizens has now reached an all-time high.
Thay also currently have over 50 million U.S. citizens without health care. 1.4 million Americans filed for bankruptcy in 2009, a 32 percent increase from 2008. As bankruptcies continue to skyrocket, medical bankruptcies are responsible for over 60 percent of them, and over 75 percent of the medical bankruptcies filed are from people who have health care insurance. Americans have the most expensive health care system in the world, and are forced to pay twice as much as other countries and the overall care they get in return ranks 37th in the world.
Now why would Joe Hockey announce that the Coalition will sell Medicare if they win the election this year????(my footnote).
In total, Americans have lost $5 trillion from their pensions and savings since the economic crisis began and $13 trillion in the value of their homes. During the first full year of the crisis, workers between the age of 55 - 60, who have worked for 20 - 29 years, have lost an average of 25 percent off their 401k. "Personal debt has risen from 65 percent of income in 1980 to 125 percent today." Over five million U.S. families have already lost their homes, in total 13 million U.S. families are expected to lose their home by 2014, with 25 percent of current mortgages underwater. Deutsche Bank has an even grimmer prediction: "The percentage of 'underwater' loans may rise to 48 percent, or 25 million homes." Every day 10,000 U.S. homes enter foreclosure. Statistics show that an increasing number of these people are not finding shelter elsewhere, there are now over 3 million homeless Americans, the fastest-growing segment of the homeless population is single parents with children.
One place more and more Americans are finding a home is in prison. With a prison population of 2.3 million people, the US now more people incarcerated than any other nation in the world -- the per capita statistics are 700 per 100,000 citizens. In comparison, China has 110 per 100,000, France has 80 per 100,000, Saudi Arabia has 45 per 100,000. The prison industry is thriving and expecting major growth over the next few years. A recent report from the Hartford Advocate titled "Incarceration Nation" revealed that "a new prison opens every week somewhere in America."

It looks like mainstream media are finally growing in the testicular region and starting to report what is really happening with the Global Warming scandal.
I wonder what Kevin Rudd thinks now of this "settled science".
Here is part of the Foxnews post. The rest is available at:
In a January 29 report, Joseph D’Aleo, the first Director of Meteorology and co-founder of the Weather Channel, and Anthony Watts, a meteorologist and founder of SurfaceStations found that starting in 1990, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) began systematically eliminating climate measuring stations in cooler locations around the world.
Yes, that's right. They began eliminating stations that tended to record cooler temperatures and drove up the average measured temperature.
The eliminated stations had been in higher latitudes and altitudes, inland areas away from the sea, as well as more rural locations. The drop in the number of weather stations was dramatic, declining from more than 6,000 stations to fewer than 1,500.
Their report provides examples of how the systematic elimination of stations and unexplained adjustments in temperature data caused measured temperatures to rise for Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Norway, Sweden, and the United States.

The new currency, simply called Carbon Currency, is designed to support a revolutionary new economic system based on energy (production, and consumption), instead of price. Our current price-based economic system and its related currencies that have supported capitalism, socialism, fascism and communism, is being herded to the slaughterhouse in order to make way for a new carbon-based world.
The deathly economic state of today’s world is a direct reflection of the sum of its sick and dying currencies, but this could soon change.
Forces are already at work to position a new Carbon Currency as the ultimate solution to global calls for poverty reduction, population control, environmental control, global

THE UN climate change panel has admitted to having * "imprecisely stated" in a key report that 55 per cent of The Netherlands is under sea level, saying that is only the area at risk of flooding.
The Dutch Government this month asked the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to explain the figure, used in a landmark 2007 report, saying its numbers were that only 26 per cent of the country is below sea level.
It was a new embarrassment for the panel. The same 938-page Fourth Assessment Report also contained an erroneous claim that global warming could melt Himalayan glaciers by 2035.
The IPCC admitted in a note sent to AFP yesterday that the 55 per cent figure was actually the portion of The Netherlands "at risk of being flooded". It insisted that the imprecision did not affect the conclusions of the report.
The figure had been used in various publications to mean "either the area below the highest sea-level reached during storms, ore total area of the country that is prone to flooding from the sea and rivers", the note said.
"Therefore, a preliminary analysis suggests that the sentence discussed should end with: 'because 55 per cent of The Netherlands is at risk of flooding'."
The panel said the figure had been supplied by a Dutch government agency.
Dutch environment ministry spokesman Trimo Vallaart said on February 5 that the figure used by the IPCC included the area below sea level- 26 per cent -- and the area threatened by river flooding - 29 per cent.
The error about Himalayan glaciers - which is being withdrawn - spurred fierce criticism of the IPCC with the controversy has giving fresh ammunition to climate sceptics.
* Politically correctspeak for "a big fat lie".

The recent exposures of fraud coming from the Hadley Climate Research Unit, then followed by similar exposures at New Zealand's NWIA, Australia's climate center, and NOAA have only confirmed the doubts arising from the obviously NON-scientific methods employed by the "Global Warming Cult".
They are a cult because of the abandonment of scientific method by many of the acolytes, together with a recent British Court decision that declared belief in Global Warming was accorded the status of a religion.
Human Caused Global Warming is not being researched; it is being promoted.
Al Gore and his fellow investors have spent over a hundred million dollars in creating a crisis of human-caused global warming out of (quite literally) thin air.
They are not doing this out of the goodness of their hearts. They expect to reap billions in profits from the trading of Carbon Credits, a "license to pollute" available for a price, subject to brokerage fees, and paid for by taxpayers.
An Emissions Trading Scheme exactly as Kevin Rudd is fighting so hard to force on the people of Australia. Mr Rudd has no mandate to do this!
Shouldn't the Australian Government be legislating for the good of the Australian people, not for the good of some shonky, failed politician from America?
I want to know the answer to that question, Mr Rudd!
One of the people Al Gore relied on to create this scheme was Ken Lay, late of ENRON, aka the Crooked "E". Al Gore plans to use Carbon Dioxide to do to the world what Ken Lay did to California using electricity; loot the people!
Are you aware of the above Mr Rudd?
I can't hear you Mr Rudd!

The United Nations panel on climate change is facing fresh criticism as a major British newspaper, The Sunday Telegraph, revealed new factual errors and poor sources of evidence in its influential report to government leaders.
Now there is a oxymoron, mentioning government and leader in the one sentance! Maybe it should be "government stooges."
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) report is supposed to be the world’s most authoritative scientific account of the scale of global warming.
But The Sunday Telegraph has discovered a series of new flaws in it including:
Claims based on unverified information in press releases and newsletters.
New examples of statements based on student dissertations, two of which were unpublished.
Claims which were based on reports produced by environmental pressure groups aligned to the Global Warming movement.

This is supposed to be about the subterfuge of Global Warming, sorry, global warming didn't happen, so the subterfuge of Climate Change.
Now, how come, as soon as we found out it was crap we don't all jump up and say:-
"Hang on you morons. You can't have it both ways! This global warming stuff is a load of bullchip. The guys that dreamed it up, so called scientists, made up a heap of lies to support it and skited to one another in emails how it was done!"
The reason we didn't folks is because we are under control.
You may say, "Hang on Shooter, just what Woolworths did those mushrooms come from while you were away on that surfing trip?"
Well, with the help of Charley Reese I will enlighten ya'all.
No, that is wrong, if you ain't enlightened, I can't do it, Charliy Reese can't do it, Jesus Christ can't do it and he has been trying for over 2,000 years!
I will make black marks on a white screen and you will interpret these marks through a set of filters that you didn't put there and don't know exist.
Good luck, your task, should you accept it, begins now!
The first principle of people control is to stooge them! Man, they must not know you are controlling them. If they knew you had them by the cort and shirleys, this knowledge could breed resentment and possibly rebellion, which would then require brute force and terror, which would mean a "war on terror" and then brutal, expensive and not 100 % certain method of control. Although almost 100% certain since Mr Howard disarmed most Australians.
It is easier than you think to control people .
One basic technique is to keep people ignorant. This controls people indirectly, manipulates them into thinking what you want them to think and doing what you want them to do .
Educated people are not as easy to manipulate. Abolishing public education or restricting access to education would be the direct approach. That would spill the beans. The indirect approach is to control the education they receive.
It is possible to be a doctor, lawyer (what happened to solicitors?), businessman, journalist, or an accountant, just to name a few examples, and at the same time be an uneducated person. Hell, there are tens of thousands of them out there if you read anything they've written or said!
The difference between true education and job training has been cleverly blurred in our time so that we have people successfully practicing their work while at the same time being totally ignorant of the larger issues of the world in which they exist.
The most obvious symptom is their absence of original thought. Ask them a question and they will end up reciting what someone else thinks, or thought, the answer was.
What do they think?
Well, they never thought about it!
Their education consisted of learning how to use the library or internet and quote sources. That greatly simplifies things for the controller because lots of money, university endowments, foundations, grants, and ownership of media rests with very few people. So it is relatively easy to control who they will think of as authorities to cite in lieu of doing their own thinking.
Let's read the killer part of that last sentence again!
"...who they will think of as authorities to cite in lieu of doing their own thinking."
Hello out there in Apathralia!
Is this you?
Denial is not a river in Egypt folks!!
Who will you quote next time? Al Gore perhaps? Many people think Al Gore has a scientific grasp on Climate Change. Al Gore is a failed politician and a 3rd rate lawyer and only has a grasp on personal greed!
A great technique that works like a charm in Apathralia is to keep the punters entertained baby! Roman emperors did not stage circuses and gladiator contests because they didn't have State of Origin Rugby League! They knew to keep the peasants docile entertainment was needed.
We have television because we don't have circuses and gladiator events. Either way, the purpose is to keep the people's minds focused on entertainment, sports, and peripheral political issues like Tony Abbot's Budgie Smugglers!
This way you won't have to worry that they will ever figure out the real issues that allow you to control them. Just as a truly educated person is difficult to control, so too is an economically independent person. Therefore, you want to create conditions that will produce people who work for wages, since wage earners have little control over their economic destiny.
You'll also want to control the monetary, credit, and banking systems. This will allow you to inflate the currency and make it next to impossible for wage earners to accumulate capital. You can also jack interest rates up after most of the punters are "on" because of record interest rate lows and allow your controllers (banks) to reposess homes, collapse family businesses, farms, and entrepreneurs, including independent community banks.
The collapse of these small independant banks, credit unions, and building societies is yet to happen in Australia!
To keep trade unions under control, first you denigrate them through your tame media and then you promote a scheme that allows you to shift production jobs out of the country (motor vehicles and food to name a couple) and bring back the products as imports (it is called free trade, Cheating Keating excelled at it!).
You will also "seed" the unions with incompetant university graduates who know and care nothing about workers rights becaus they have never worked! As a reward for their stuffups you fast track them into a "safe seat" in politics where they further undermine the union movement! This way you will end up with no Trade Unions or docile unions.
You then buy both political parties so that after a while people will feel that no matter whether they vote for Candidate A or candidate B, they will get the same policies. Sort of like Rudd the Dudd and that other bloke, whom I forget, who thought he was the leader of the Opposition! This will create great apathy and a belief that the political process is useless for effecting real change.
You move The Mad Abbot rapidly toward an ETS type tax like Rudd the Dudd. He blindly follows your orders to do so because you have promised him many directorships of companies when he retires from politics. He has already stated in the press he cannot live on $125,000 per annum!
Pretty soon you will have a population that feels completely helpless, and thinks the bad things happening to them are nobody in particular's fault, just a result of a global financial crisis or social evolution or some other disembodied abstract concept. If necessary, you can offer scapegoats.
Then you can bleed them dry without having to worry overly much that one of them will sneak into your house one night and cut your throat. Remember, they wont have a gun to shoot you as good ole Johhny Howard made sure of that!
If you do it right, they won't even know whose throat to cut.

"Guess what? The man responsible for looking after the fat pensions of the boys and girls at the BBC is a climate change fanatic, and he is part of an international group of investment managers who bust a gut to invest in 'climate change' schemes. He's called Peter Dunscombe, and he runs the £8.2bn corporation pension fund, advising trustees on a day-to-day basis about their investments. Mr Dunscombe, who addresses conferences about 'ethical investments', is also chairman of the Institutional Investment Group on Climate Change(IIGCC), which has 47 members and manages four trillion euros' worth of investments; yes, four trillion. Their goal is to find as many 'climate change' investment opportunities as possible'
The IIGCC Investor Statement on Climate change was launched in October 2006. Asset owners and asset managers who signed the Statement committed to increasing their focus on climate change in their own processes and in their engagement with companies and governments.
So now we really know why BBC staffers are so fanatical about 'climate change'. It's naked self-interest. In 2008, there were 18,736 contributors to the BBC pension fund; every man jack of them benefits from climate alarmism.
Update: I've been going through the latest BBC Pensions Trust report, and it reveals that Helen Boaden, who is the overall boss of the BBC's news and current affairs operation, was appointed to the trust in 2008. So the woman who tells environment reporters such as Roger Harrabin and Richard Black that the science is settled also works to maximise the returns of the pension fund with Peter Dunscombe. I thought that needed spelling out fully, just in case any subtleties might be missed.
