Farmer Fred and the Professor


The Percival Effect
Correlations, Causes and Dis-proofs

Every morning just before dawn our rooster crows and soon afterwards the sun comes up. We have observed no exceptions over three months – clear evidence of perfect correlation. Therefore we have concluded that the crowing rooster causes the sun to rise.

My wife Flora (who believes that the Cooee birds bring the rain) said: “I knew that ages ago – Professor Percival told me.”

So I consulted Professor Percival, our neighbour. He is Professor Emeritus in the “Science in Society” Department at Top-Line University. He specialises in the effect of sound waves on atmospheric transmissivity. He says that some roosters produce sound waves of just the right frequency to affect the dawn visibility through the thick morning atmosphere. He has written pal-reviewed papers on the subject which has been named “The Percival Effect”. In all the hallowed halls, it is regarded as “settled science”.

However, we decided that our rooster was not doing his day job, so he ended up as roast dinner last night.

Flora was very concerned – “what if the sun does not appear at all tomorrow?” she wailed.

But the sun rose as normal.

Flora was relieved but a concerned Professor Percival went off to check his calculations “for feedback loops”. He is still checking.

One thing was proved conclusively in just one day – the rooster’s crowing does not make the sun appear. Something else causes the sun to rise. Our ninety-two correlations did not prove causation. But just one disproof was needed to kill the Percival Effect.

So it is with the Greenhouse Effect. For about 20 years now, carbon dioxide levels have risen steadily but global temperatures are trending level. Therefore CO2 does not control global temperature.

One disproof is all that is needed.

Bert was a Liberal MP from South Australia, who became famous for his regular media articles by “Modest Member”. Bert was one of the most sensible men to ever be elected to Parliament, and one of the founders of “The Dries” so naturally did not advance far in Parliament.

How did the Australian Bureau of Meteorology manage to mislay the William Creek Data?


Global warming is nothing new to William Creek.

John McDouall Stuart’s exploration as reported in South Australia Register, Jan. 15th 1861, “The thermometer stood yesterday, in the shade 128 deg; in the sun 173.” How did the Bureau of Meteorology Manage to lose the William Creek Data?

Maybe they should read the newspapers to see that it did exist, and it was very HOT! Watch the video here:

Grazing Animals are Carbon Neutral and should not be Taxed


Every atom of carbon emitted by grazing animals was taken from the pasture that animal consumed. Which was taken from the atmosphere. Therefore all grazing animals are carbon neutral.

This leaflet by Jim Hawes explains it simply:

Green Energy Steals from the Biosphere


Earth has only three significant sources of energy.

First is geothermal energy from Earth’s molten core and decaying radioactive minerals in Earth’s crust. This energy moves continents, powers volcanoes and its heat migrates towards the crust, warming the lithosphere and the deep oceans. It can be harvested successfully in favourable locations, and radioactive minerals can be extracted to provide large amounts of reliable heat for power generation.

Second is energy stored in combustible hydrocarbon minerals such as coal, oil, gas, tar sands and oil shale. These all store solar and geothermal energy collected eons ago and they are the primary energy sources supporting the modern world and its large and growing populations.

Third are radiation and gravitational energies from the Sun and Moon which are captured by the biosphere as heat, winds, tides, rain, rivers and in biomass such as forests, crops and animals. These are the natural “Green” energies that support all processes of life and still support a peasant existence for some peoples.

Green zealots believe that we can and should run modern societies exclusively on “Green” energies, and they have embarked on a war on hydrocarbons. They need to be told that their green energy favourites are just stealing from the biosphere – they are not as green as they claim.

Pope Ponders Paganism


Not since the rule of Emperor Constantine, during the Roman Warm Era, have pagan gods been tolerated in Rome.

Before Constantine, Romans worshipped 12 main gods including Apollo (the Sun), Diana (the Moon), Flora (the plants), Uranus (the sky), Ceres (the crops), Gaia (the Earth) and of course Bacchus (wine), Venus (love) and Mars (war). Some of these gods demanded tribute and sacrifice.

Christianity, the worship of one forgiving God, slowly absorbed or eliminated its pagan rivals. The Popes in Rome came to lead a Catholic empire of Christians. In modern times, the old Greek/Roman goddess, Gaia, has been resurrected by the world green movement.

Green Energy Policy? – “Nothing that Works”


green-economy-sedan-s

Source: http://stevehunterillustrations.com.au/political-cartoons/

Modern industrial society commenced with the use of coal and oil to power factories, trains,
ships and agriculture and to generate electricity. With abundant energy, prosperity increased,
and people could save enough to support leisure, education, culture and environmental
concerns.

But the dark greens have a dream to dismantle all this, and return society to the hunter/gatherer
era.

In an unguarded moment Maurice Strong, a leader of the international green movement, said:

“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our
responsibility to bring that about?”

Greens have thus gleefully spread the global warming scare to justify a massive political war on
hydro-carbon fuels. Timothy Wirth, ex-President of the UN Foundation, spilt the beans:

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is
wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”
http://carbon-sense.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/exposing-the-green-agenda.pdf

To mask their real aim of de-energising modern industry, they continually promote “alternative
energy”.

The only alternatives to coal, oil and gas for stable, reliable and economical grid power are
nuclear energy, and in favourable locations, hydro or geothermal.

Nuclear power could be one of our cheapest and safest energy sources. However greens have
opposed and denigrated it for decades, and erected such bureaucratic and financial hurdles that
it is seldom considered in most pampered western societies.

They are in favour of hydro, providing it does not disturb one fish or frog on their favourite river.

But they continually spruik the benefits of wind and solar power.

Wind/solar can be useful in some mobile or remote locations, and for some people with deep
pockets who wish to become independent of the grid. But being totally unable to supply 24/7
grid power, they need reliable backup (or massive batteries) for about 75% of their rated
capacity. Once we subtract the energy and resources needed to build and maintain the
towers/panels, plus the roads and transmission lines, plus backup/batteries and then run it all
intermittently, the whole-of-life net-contribution of wind/solar to energy supply or emission
reduction is negligible or negative.

Another dark green leader, Amory Lovins of the Rocky Mountains Institute, said:

“It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap,
abundant energy, because of what we might do with it.”
Green energy policy promotes this dictum by supporting “Nothing that Works”.

The world focus on carbon dioxide is simply a useful tool in a much larger political agenda:

Exposing the Green Agenda


This presentation by Michael Darby shows some of the frightening statements listed by the gurus of the Greens. Read, learn and then plan to defend Australia against seriously twisted people.

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global
warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and
environmental policy.”

Timothy Wirth, President of the United Nations Foundation, 1998-2013.

Earth Hour, Earth Day, and now Earth Month – mere slogans in the Environmental Asylum


The Environmental Insane Asylum
By Alan Caruba

Earth Day was declared in 1970 and for the past 45 years we have all been living in the Environmental Insane Asylum, being told over and over again to believe things that are the equivalent of Green hallucinations. Now the entire month of April has been declared Earth Month, but in truth not a day goes by when we are not assailed with the bold-faced lies that comprise environmentalism.

Around the globe, the worst part of this is that we are being victimized by people we are told to respect from the President of the United States to the Pope of the Catholic Church. Their environmentalism is pure socialism.

Organizations whom we expect to tell the truth keep telling us that “climate change is one of the biggest global security threats of the 21st century.” This was a recent statement by “world leaders” like the G7, a group of finance ministers and central bank governors of seven advanced economies, the International Monetary Fund, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United States. On April 17 they adopted a report about the “threat” put together by think tanks that included the European Union Institute for Security Studies and the Wilson Center in Washington, D.C.

Too Many Wild Cards


wild-cards-s

Climate alarmists claim incessantly that all bad weather is caused by man’s use of hydro-carbon fuels – oil, gas and coal.

They insist that man-made carbon dioxide is the trump card in the climate game. Their computerised models of doom assume ever-rising levels of carbon dioxide which will trump all natural climate controllers.

Unfortunately for their credibility, since at least the year 2000 global temperatures have trended level despite significant increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide.
