CSIRO boss issues apology for ‘religion’ jibe


Forced to apologise…

Forced to apologise…

The Climate Inquisitors got their way and forced an apology – an update on this story from yesterday.

But it is a pyrrhic victory, since it is the zealotry that infects the alarmist cause. [Read more…]

CSIRO boss: warming alarmism ‘more like religion than science’


Even the CSIRO boss is a 'denier' to the zealots…

Even the CSIRO boss is a ‘denier’ to the zealots…

Finally worked it out, then, have we?

Here are some ACM articles from years past on the subject:

Climate Council: junk science leads to record levels of alarmism


Only the ABC cares about Flannery any more...

Only the ABC cares about Flannery any more…

The Climate Council is nothing more than an alarmism generating machine. Every year the level of hysteria increases faster than global temperatures, and breaks records with monotonous regularity.

With Tim Flannery and Will Steffen slowly stewing in their own warmist juices, there is no moderating element to reign in the madness, which gets more and more extreme every year.

And, despite being a privately funded organisation, the Climate Council has the ABC as its uncritical media department, providing – for free – all the publicity that it needs. And when I say ‘for free’, I mean paid for by our taxes. [Read more…]

Slow news day at the ABC: shoot a polar bear


You're killing me with your addition to fossil fuels

You’re killing me with your addiction to fossil fuels

Plucked from the ABC’s library of climate alarmism, here we have yet another ‘polar bears are doomed’ story to add to the millions we have seen already (none of which have, or will, come true).

But so what if none of these apocalyptic prophesies ever come to pass? The ABC, and its nauseating coterie of Greeny-Lefty, inner-city, bike-riding, latte-sipping, sandal-wearing, basket-weaving, yoghurt-knitting, pro-Palestinian, “Fuck Tony Abbott” supporting, Ultimo-squatting trendoids, cares about the climate, and it constantly needs to demonstrate this by publishing this kind of crap.

And just to ram the point home, the article is accompanied by an oh-so-cute photo of a polar bear cub, just so all you evil deniers out there can feel really guilty for putting petrol in your car or using electricity generated from coal:

Scientists are warning polar bears in the Arctic could face starvation by the end of the century if sea ice keeps shrinking.

Sea ice projections for the Canadian Arctic Archipelago show global warming could reduce the icy periods polar bears need to hunt and breed each year.

The Canadian Arctic Archipelago is known as the “last ice area” and was thought to be a long-term safe haven for the polar bear.

But researchers said the findings were an early warning sign for the potential impacts of climate change on other Arctic species too.

Dr Andrew Derocher from Canada’s University of Alberta said the region’s icy conditions were crucial for polar bears, but sea ice projections in the area were not positive.

He said the ice models showed the animals could starve if climate change continued on its current trajectory, as it would not only impact upon the bears, but also their prey.

“We know already that other populations further south and in other areas won’t be doing well … but in this area where we thought the ice would persist well into this century [we’ve started] to see serious difficulties,” he said.

“They have a short window in the spring time where they gorge themselves on the fat of seals. The problem is, if you push them too far, they don’t have enough energy stored.

“It’s clear we’re on a trajectory that will result in many populations of polar bears blinking out.” (source)

De-fund the ABC – now.

ABC wheels out Mungo to prop up Obama


Mungo's minging

Mungo – minging

Mungo MacCallum: the ABC’s go-to lefty* for trashing Abbott, praising Obama and ensuring the bias never lets up. Hilarious.

This is all you need to read of the latest Mungo-gram (you’re welcome):

Barack Obama’s speech to the University of Queensland during the G20 bash was undoubtedly a show-stopper: spell-binding oratory with a powerful message urging the people, particularly the youth, to demand more action on climate change.

After that gem of jaw-dropping hyperbole, the rest of the article is a terrible anticlimax…

Blue Mountains fires: ABC plugs climate change angle


"Oh Greg, there's a fire burning inside me." "I think you'll find that climate change made it worse…"

“Oh Greg darling, there’s a fire burning inside me.” “Yes, and it’ll get worse thanks to climate change…”

No doubt getting a few hints from her current squeeze, former Labor Climate Change minister Greg Combet, newsreader Juanita Phillips disappointed this particular viewer tonight by stringing up RFS Chief Shane Fitzsimmons like a kipper and leading him down the murky path to politicising the Blue Mountains bush fires.

Phillips used the interview as an opportunity to ask a barrage of questions about the effect of climate change, which Fitzsimmons was completely unqualified to answer. But don’t forget, in ABC land, being qualified to speak on climate only applies to sceptics, though.

Dr Karl’s Klimate Krap…


More Klimate Krap

More Klimate Krap

Dr Karl is on a krappy Krusade… to keep the warming scare going.

Rusted-on warmists like Dr Karl have invested so much emotional energy in their substitute religion that when the evidence no longer fits their theory, they just, er,  ignore the evidence. It’s tragic to see a supposed “scientist” in such a confused state of cognitive dissonance:

In general, scientists are a pretty mild and inoffensive bunch. But over the last decade, one specific group of scientists has come in for a lot of criticism. So let’s dive into the topic of ‘the pause in global warming’.

In the USA, the Wall Street Journal wrote, “temperatures have been flat for 15 years – nobody can properly explain it.”

Another newspaper from the same stable, the UK Daily Mail wrote “global warming ‘pause’ may last 20 more years, and Arctic sea ice has already started to recover”. Both of these statements are very reassuring, but unfortunately, very very wrong.

With regard to this ‘pause’, there are two major claims made by those who deny the science of climate change.

The first one is that the climate is actually cooling – not warming. This is incorrect.

The second claim is that after some previous warming, the global climate is now constant, and neither warming nor cooling. In other words, that the climate is in a kind of holding pattern, or haitus. This is also incorrect.

You can read the rest here, but quite frankly, save your time. Rather than accept that something is going on that the models failed to predict, Dr Karl would rather stick his fingers in his ears and shout “La, la, la!” Pretty much like the ABC in general, really…
