That saying, attributed to John Heywood (1546) paraphrasing Jeremiah 5:21 so aptly puts the reality of the Global Warming hoax as it stands today. The biggest story in global warming today is the lack of it! There has now been 15 and half years of no warming of our atmosphere even as the culprit in this scenario, CO2, rose 100ppm over those years. And yet, Australia saw visiting eco-extremist David Suzuki on the ABC's Morning Show yesterday preaching his message of doom. And to add insult to our intelligence, the Australia Broadcasting Corp has welcomed him as an oracle onto to the set of the Q & A Show this Monday evening! As former ABC chairman Maurice Newman correctly observed: ''The ABC is not being frank and truthful about the way global warming is portrayed and the sense of imbalance is becoming more overt, I feel.... Like the BBC, there are signs that small but powerful group has captured the corporation, at least on climate change.'' And warmist idiot, Tony Jones will be hosting the show.
So how credible is he? Here's just some fact-checking:
He was quoted three times, two days ago, on warmist devastation in The Age, who complemented his message with this picture (left, below):
''Half the coral on the Great Barrier Reef has disappeared in the past 27 years and its size could halve again in the next decade with the increasing frequency of cyclones.''
Reality: Australian Bureau of Meteorology states ''Trends in tropical cyclone activity in the Australian region...show that the total number of cyclones has decreased in recent decades. Two recent CSIRO studies show a significant decrease in tropical cyclone numbers.''
Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority: ''Coral reefs can cope with natural disturbances like floods and cyclones.''
Australian Coral Reef Studies (James Cook University) ''A number of coastal reefs have been obliterated by run-off sediment, dredging and pollution.''
Suzuki: ''For more than 20 years the insurance industry has been telling us we have been paying more for changes in the climate. Why aren't we listening to these insurers?
Reality: Roger Pielke Jr., Professor Environmental Studies, University of Colorado, Boulder states: ''After adjusting for patterns of development, over the long term there is no climate signal of increasing damage from extreme events either globally or in particular regions.''
Again: ''In British Columbia, where I live, a warming climate has allowed insects to destroy $65 billion worth of pine trees in just over a decade. For millennia the Mountain Pine Beetle has been kept in check by our minus 35 degree winter temperatures.
Reality: Suzuki is cherry-picking because he has admitted elsewhere that poor forestry practices, monocultures and suppression of fires, not just warm weather, created an overabundance of the older trees those beetles love to eat, hence the population explosion.
Again: ''This pine tree devastation event is unlike anything recorded in North American history, but it's not been enough to galvanise our government to get serious about acting on climate change.''
|A Slight Cooling of Global Temperature over Last 2 Years|
The Way I See It.....for years, most journalists in the mainstream media haven't just failed to question the global warming fear campaign. They have refused to even listen to any evidence against it, even from dissenting climate scientists, and have howled down those who dared present it soberly. This has been the most shameful collective failure of journalism in the past 20 years. Media journalists became propagandists, even witchhunters. The biggest Whore-to-Warmism, The Age, with its environmental writers and Gaia-loving editors, repeatedly tried to discredit Lord Christopher Monckton when he lectured here in Australia and now give credence to the industrial-grade fertiliser that is Suzuki's stock in trade.
But the warming pause (actually cooling in the past 2 years) kept going, and is now so undeniable and so contrary to global warming theory that it has blown up this stifling ''consensus''. Many journalists must be taken-to-task by some publishing authority and asked why they never questioned an apocalyptic faith that thankfully is collapsing. There is a newspaper that is still actively promoting this obscene denialism, The Age, that now has a scientist-in-residence, a warmist, who Age staff have been encouraged to consult when reporting on the release this Friday of the IPCC's report. What's the odds that any truthful reporting will get through the Age filters?
