And The Hoax Goes On

October 20, 2011

Canada – $6b to cut global temps by 0.0007°C. Just $84Trillion per degree!

The insanity rolls on:

I thought the Canadians had gotten over this type of insanity. Environment Canada apparently wants to cut the coal industry in half. (At least that’s as much as they’ll admit too. Presumably they’d feel like they’d completed their life’s work if they could only wipe it out completely.)

Christopher Monckton has analyzed the Canadian regulatory action on “Coal Emissions” and finds that, as usual, legislators are choosing the most expensive option possible with other people’s money. Environment Canada wants to spend $6 billion to reduce the atmospheric concentration of a trace molecule by 0.01 ppmv, and assuming there is any advantage in doing so, it would still cost one-eighteenth as much to just do nothing, suck it and see, and pay for all the theoretical damage that could ensue.

Like so many other Western Nations, there is not even the pretense that the legislation makes sense judged by any numerical outcome, yet Canadian citizens may have to pay thousands in tithe to witchdoctors and carpetbaggers in a futile attempt to change the weather. It’s as if the highest echelons of Western leadership are stone-age innumerate.

BBC Reports: UK First Carbon Capture Project Goes Tits Up(as they say)

October 20, 2011

A £1bn project to turn a Scottish power station into a world leader in climate-change technology has collapsed.

Plans for the UK’s first carbon capture project at the Longannet power station in Fife have been scrapped, the energy secretary has confirmed.

Chris Huhne announced the failure to reach a “deal” with power companies to capture carbon dioxide emissions at the plant and pipe them under the sea.

Mr Huhne blamed problems with the length of pipeline needed.

But he said the government hoped other schemes could work, indicating interest at Peterhead in Aberdeenshire.

Mr Huhne told BBC Scotland interest had been expressed by Scottish and Southern Energy, which operates Peterhead, and he was confident a carbon capture and storage scheme could be brought online for the £1bn which the UK government had been offering to develop the CCS technology.

He said there were “specific” technical problems with Longannet which meant the scheme could not be made to “stack up” and would have required much more money. “If there was a completely unlimited resource then we may have been able to surmount the technical problems at Longannet,” Mr Huhne said.

“When we have clear indications that we can do what we need to do with carbon capture and storage at a commercial scale within the £1bn budget that we have got, then it seems to me that is what sensible taxpayers and energy bill payers would want us to do.”

Responding to Mr Huhne’s announcement, Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond said it was “deeply disappointing”.

And the hoaxers weigh in — Environmental group WWF Scotland said scrapping the scheme meant four years had been wasted in the battle to tackle climate change.

Scottish Power’s coal-fired plant at Longannet had been the only remaining site in the UK government competition for the funding.

SPECIAL REPORT: More Than 1000 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims – Challenge UN IPCC & Gore

August 2, 2011

Well so much for consensus agreement. The original UN consensus was at best 25 scientist, most of who have now recanted.

More than 1,000 dissenting scientists (updates previous 700 scientist report) from around the globe have now challenged man-made global warming claims made by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former Vice President Al Gore. This new 2010 321page Climate Depot Special Report — updated from the 2007 groundbreaking U.S. Senate Report of over 400 scientists who voiced skepticism about the so-called global warming “consensus” — features the skeptical voices of over 1,000 international scientists, including many current and former UN IPCC scientists, who have now turned against the UN IPCC. This updated 2010 report includes a dramatic increase of over 300 additional (and growing) scientists and climate researchers since the last update in March 2009. This report’s release coincides with the 2010 UN global warming summit in being held in Cancun.

“In essence, the jig is up. The whole thing is a fraud. And even the fraudsters that fudged data are admitting to temperature history that they used to say didn’t happen…Perhaps what has doomed the Climategate fraudsters the most was their brazenness in fudging the data” — Dr. Christopher J. Kobus, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Oakland University, specializes in alternative energy, thermal transport phenomena, two-phase flow and fluid and thermal energy systems.

Federal Goverment Jumps The Shark: Government Report Says Global Warming May Cause Cancer, Mental Illness

April 28, 2010

File this one under the category that liberalism is a mental disease:

A new government report says global warming could lead to an increase in both cancer and mental illness worldwide, and it calls for more federally funded research to determine how that might happen.

The report, A Human Health Perspective on Climate Change, was published by the Interagency Working Group on Climate Change and Health – a combination of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, NIH, State Department, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Department of Agriculture, the EPA, and the Department of Health and Human Services.

I wonder, do the diseases mean the government is getting deranged from their own hysteria?
