Retired professor turns whistleblower on climate change



Warmageddonist cult leader Al Gore is still preaching the alamist gospel despite having been busted for buying up California beach front property he had warned would be swamped by rising sea level.

Academic says: I’m now retired so I have no scientific career to protect by spreading lies

“researchers want to keep federal funding for climate change alive, and politicians want to earn environmentalist votes, and both predict global pandemonium to that end:” Dr. Terry Hughes.

Dr. Terry Hughes, in an interview with The College Fix, said researchers want to keep federal funding for climate change alive, and politicians want to earn environmentalist votes, and both predict global pandemonium to that end.

Hughes, a professor emeritus of earth sciences and climate change at the University of Maine, said for years his colleagues urged him to be in lockstep with former Vice President Al Gore – “the drum major in the parade denouncing global warming as an unmitigated disaster,” he told The College Fix.

But Hughes – who believes global warming is actually a good thing because more carbon dioxide is good for the environment in many ways – said he does not want to march to that beat.

“Too many (the majority of) climate research scientists are quite willing to prostitute their science by giving these politicians what they want,” he said.

Polar Temperature Data ‘Proving’ Climate Change Nothing More than a Guess
Dr Benny Peiser who heads up the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), has said temperature readings from the Arctic and Antarctic used to estimate the effects of global warming are nothing more than guesswork.

Anyone who understood basic arithmetic (like how to work out an average) and took the trouble to examine the ‘science’ that backed the climate change scare would have quickly understood the whole thing was a fraud. And plenty of digigent, honest and respected scientists did understand that and were not afraid to say so. But those who went public faced hate attacks, personal smears and having their careers trashed. Now however, as evidence exposes the lies of the global warming lobby, they are starting to come forward.

Now Even Science Mag Admits Climate Models Are Crap

Summer on the Costa Del Sol circa 2050? (Source)

What has Little Nicky been telling you since we started back in 2005? The whole Anthropogenic Global Warming business is a scam designed to enrich the rich, help government raise stealth taxes in the form of ‘green levies’ on our energy bills, and generate enough fear and panic among the general population we will meekly surrender our freedoms to huddle Under A Sheltering Sky fabricated by supporters of a global bureaucratic dictatorship.

One of the problems with ‘climate science’ is that it relies for evidence of global warming on data extracted from mathematical models of the global climate running in computers. And it has been obvious for some time the output from these models does not match what is happening in reality

It has long been a tactic of the totally dishonest Warmageddonist movement to dismiss any independent (i.e. not supported by Big Global in their various disguises) research as being not by proper scientists.

A few months ago however Science magazine no less presented a compilation of metastudies by respected physicists, meteorologists and environmentalists all of which agree that the models are unreliable. (Science is available online only to subscribers)so I cannot give you a direct link.

Read an extract:

An article in the June 13, 2014, issue of Science admits the computer climate models are not effective at forecasting either future or past temperatures. The Science piece says the current models are “bloated with data,” but still cannot represent such huge variables as clouds and shifts in ocean currents. Statisticians are recommending a re-start.

At the same time, new studies are revealing that the sun has an even bigger role in climate than the current climate models understand.

One of the new papers finds that the amount of time the sun is obscured from the earth by clouds is “highly correlated” with temperatures over the past 50 years. That was true both in the global dimming of the 1960s and 1970s and during the brightening of the 1990s and 2000s. The authors studied 10 climate variables over that period. (Spinoni et al., “Climate of the Carpathian Region in the period 1961–2010,” International Journal of Climatology online.)

The Spinoni team also found a decreasing trend in relative humidity over the past 50 years, which is contrary to the current models’ assumptions. That supports the theory that the greenhouse gas impacts are becoming increasingly saturated and thus less frightening.

Another recent paper in the Journal of Solar and Terrestrial Physics predicts global temperatures will fall by up to 1º C by 2020 due to low solar activity. Solheim et al. note that long solar cycles (like the one we’re currently in) predict more solar dimming. (Solheim et al., “The long sunspot cycle 23 predicts a significant temperature decrease in cycle 24,” Journal of Solar and Terrestrial Physics 80, 2012). Papers like these do not get reported in mainstream media, on broadcast news or by people like that science worshipping twat Brian Cox who has less brain cells than he has testicles – and I’m not sure he has a full set of testicles.[Continue reading at Cfact]

Fake Science

some of Little Nicky’s most viewed and most commented blog posts over the years have been our exposures of the hypocrisy and dishonesty of those geeks who call themselves scientists. Their sacred cows were slaughtered, the infallibility of statistics was show to be a case of “if you torture data enough it will give you the answer you wanted, and the semi divine ‘peer review process’ was revealed as a “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours, bit of Chimpery.

Oh the hatred and opprobrium that was hurled at Little Nicky. Still we did learn from it that when their research grants are threatened scientists revert to a primitive state (well the poor little buggers are not very evolved) and start hurling abuse like chimps throwing turds at intruders. Well they are CHIMPS of course, Completely Hopeless In Most Practical Situations.

Little Nicky was right of course, though it always take the world a while to catch up. Many of those “peer reviewed scientific papers” are nothing but a fraud. Take a look at this from world truth

“Like all the best hoaxes, there was a serious point to be made. Three MIT graduate students wanted to expose how dodgy scientific conferences pestered researchers for papers, and accepted any old rubbish sent in, knowing that academics would stump up the hefty, till-ringing registration fees.

It took only a handful of days. The students wrote a simple computer program that churned out gobbledegook and presented it as an academic paper. They put their names on one of the papers, sent it to a conference, and promptly had it accepted. The sting, in 2005, revealed a farce that lay at the heart of science.

But this is the hoax that keeps on giving. The creators of the automatic nonsense generator, Jeremy Stribling, Dan Aguayo and Maxwell Krohn, have made the SCIgen program free to download. And scientists have been using it in their droves. This week, Nature reported, French researcher Cyril Labbé revealed that 16 gobbledegook papers created by SCIgen had been used by German academic publisher Springer. More than 100 more fake SCIgen papers were published by the US Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). Both organisations have now taken steps to remove the papers.”

Is This The End For The Climate Science Scam?

Little Nicky and his friends at Boggart Blog and The Daily Stirrer have told you so many times that the whole Anthropogenic Global Warming scare was a government – academic scam. “The science is settled,” the evil, coneheaded wonks screamed.

Fuck the science, look at the flaws in the junior school level arithmetic, little Nicky taunted. What to know who was right, look at this:

from Principia Scientific

“A newly-uncovered and monumental calculating error in official US government climate data shows beyond doubt that climate scientists unjustifiably added on a whopping one degree of phantom warming to the official “raw” temperature record. Skeptics believe the discovery may trigger the biggest of all “climate con” scandals in Congress and sound the death knell on American climate policy.

Independent data analyst, Steven Goddard, today (January 19, 2014) released his telling study of the officially adjusted and “homogenized” US temperature records relied upon by NASA, NOAA, USHCN and scientists around the world to “prove” our climate has been warming dangerously.

Goddard reports, “I spent the evening comparing graphs…and hit the NOAA motherlode.” His diligent research exposed the real reason why there is a startling disparity between the “raw” thermometer readings, as reported by measuring stations, and the “adjusted” temperatures, those that appear in official charts and government reports. In effect, the adjustments to the “raw” thermometer measurements made by the climate scientists “turns a 90 year cooling trend into a warming trend,” says the astonished Goddard.”

Despite The Science Being Discredited Mainsteam Media Still Plugs Climate Scare

I don’t get here enough these days, but Populis seem to be getting on top of things, they certainly got rid of the span site penalty, and traffic is going up. So perhaps it’s time Little Nicky Machievelli had a news lease of life:
Here’s something I posted under my Arthur Foxake alter ego:

Despite The Science Being Discredited Mainsteam Media Still Plugs Climate Scare
by Arthur Foxake

Just take a look at this great, steaming heap of bullshit from CNN and ask yourself why anyone watches a channel owned by a billionaire elitist who has openly said he thinks the global population should be reduced from 7 billion to 350 million. It’s a no brainer that the output from any news channel owned by a Nazi shit like Ted Turner is not going to report real news but pump out propaganda designed to brainwash you.
See below what I mean:

(CNN) — Average annual temperatures will start to consistently exceed the highest levels previously recorded in as little as seven years in tropical hotspots and within four decades for the majority of the globe if nothing is done to stop climate change, according to a new study published Thursday in the journal Nature. And by the end of the century, monthly average temperatures will be higher than at any time since at least 1860, according to the study, led by University of Hawaii geographer Camilo Mora.

The effects will be felt first in tropical climates, with the annual temperature range rising beyond the historical range in Manokwari, Indonesia, in 2020, according to a map that accompanies the study on the University of Hawaii website.

Mexico City’s date is 2031. It’s 2046 in Orlando, and a year later in Washington and New York, according to the group. Anchorage, Alaska, doesn’t climb on board until 2071.

“The results shocked us. Regardless of the scenario, changes will be coming soon,” Mora said in a statement posted by the university. “Within my generation, whatever climate we were used to will be a thing of the past.”
Read full story from CNN if your reading of choice is fairy tales.

What makes Little Nicky laugh is the confidence these guys have in their predictions for fifty years ahead when they can’t even forecast next weeks weather accurately most of the time

But if you could not be arsed reading the pseudo – scientific bullshit in the CNN item, just take a look at one statement in there that shows what a pack of scaremongering lies this is.

“Monthly average temperatures will be higher than at any time since at least 1860”
So these pseudo scientists, these research grant troughers are so determined to keep their piggy snouts in the swill they make up an idiotic and blatant lie to support their scaremongering.

Hotter than any time since 1860? It is conveniently just before meaningful temperature records began to be kept but if we look at the history books or newspaper archives for 1860 there are no reports of mass extinction, of millions of people starving because crops had withered in parched fields. In fact the average temperature since records began (around 150 years ago)shows a statistical increase of 0.4 of a degree.

Four tenths of a degree in 150 years. At that rate it will be six hundred years before we hit that two degree increase that scientists(but nobody else)thinks is so critical. Surely if these scientists are as clever as they would like us to think, they can devise a faster way to wipe out humanity.

And why would they want to wipe out humanity, you might well ask. Because they can of course, they’re scientists so that’s the only reason they ever need to inflict harm on their fellow humans.

A Record-Setting Blizzard Killed 75,000 Cows and You Might Not Have Even Heard About It

Ranchers are still digging out thousands of their cattle that became buried in a record-setting snowstorm in South Dakota USA late last week and over the weekend. One would think the death of 75,000 cattle caused by upwards of five feet of snow so early in the autumn might get some national attention, or even warrant a world news report in Europe and elsewhere but as one blogger observed, it has taken some time for the news of the precipitation massacre to reach outside of local media.

Well of course, they are usually keen to report climate change but this is the wrong sort of climate change.

Little Nicky has warned of the replacement of news with propaganda since we started in 2005. People are waking up and relying on alternative news to learn what is really going on. And is it any wonder when traditional media offers us nothing but the bullsit shovelled out by their political masters. Bullshit like this:

Mainstream media all on board latest global warming fear-and-panic bandwagon after IPCC / New World Order report release.
from Natural News:

“Man-made, human-produced carbon dioxide is filling up the atmosphere, heating it to unsustainable temperatures that will ultimately melt the polar ice caps and flood the world.”

That’s the latest fear-mongering “report” from the United Nations’ International Panel on Climate Change. Only, none of that is true, as other climatologists and experts, including those at NASA reported as early as a few years ago.

Of course, none of this makes much difference to the New World Order (Not a real organization but a derogatory reference to those political groups, businesses and academics intent on promoting the idea that only a global, totalitarian government can ave humankind.) owned alarmist mainstream media, most of which has bought into and reported verbatim disproven nonsense regarding nonexistent global warming crises that is still being espoused from people like former Vice President Al Gore, whose own predictions of melting polar caps have been seriously debunked.”

An incomplete list of scientists challenging the idea that global warming is caused solely by Carbon Dioxide emissions generated by human activity can be found at this wikipedia page. A warning however, Wikipedia can be edited by people with an agenda and this page repeats the misleading claim that 97 per cent of scientific papers support the global warming case.

In fact though the majority (not 97%, the authors of the meta analysis referred to assumed the support for their case of scientists who acknowledged that climate change was a problem did not express an opinion on the cause) support the probability that human activity has some imact on the climate, Carbon Dioxide was not identified as the sole cause, some citing deforestation, urbanisation and overpopulation as more significant factors.

According to this report in Forbes magazine the American business news publication only thirty six percent of 1077 scientists surveyed support the carbon Dioxide theory with a large majority suggesting the causes of the slight increase in global mean temperature are natural.

We can find any amount of level headed, objective research and analysis showing that the majority of independent scientists are highly sceptical of the Carbon Dioxide case and the bogus evidence (e.g. the notorious hockey schtick graph) coked up to support it. Here’s just one paper published in the peer reviewed journal Energy and Environment:

Why scientists are skeptical about the anthropogenic global warming hypothesis

Here’a a little taster from the first paragraph:

Abstract: The strong climate-forcing effect of rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations advocated by the IPCC, is at odds with climate developments during geological, historical and recent times. Although atmospheric CO2 concentrations continuously increased during industrial times, temperatures did not increase continuously to the present level but stagnated or even declined slightly during 1880 to 1900, 1945 to 1977 and again since 1998.

Total solar irradiation rose from a low in 1890 to a first peak in 1950 that was followed by a sharp decline ending in 1977, giving way to a period of rapidly increasing radiation peaking in 2002 when solar activity started to decrease, possibly declining to a new Little-Ice-Age type low.

The Greenhouse Effect of increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations, claimed and widely propagated by IPCC, is particularly vexing as it is widely over-estimated without adequate scientific justification. Large observed climate variations documented for geological and historical times, as well as the lack of insight into the behaviour of complex systems, seriously question the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) concept propagated by the IPCC.

The climate variability during industrial times was essentially governed by changes in solar activity with increasing atmospheric CO2 content playing a subordinate role.

Bit of an eye opener if you are used to seeing the claims of lying liars who tell you no “respectable” scientists disagree with the idea that Anthopogenic Global Warming is due to carbon dioxide emitted by business and domestic energy use.

But finally, in an old article for Times Of India SWAMINATHAN S ANKLESARIA AIYAR nails the truth of that alleged almost complete scientific consesus in support of CO2 driven AGW:

Greens say, rightly, that the best scientific assessment today is that global warming is occurring. Yet never in history have scientists accurately predicted what will happen 100 years later. A century ago no scientists predicted the internet, microwave ovens, TV, nuclear explosions or antibiotics. It is impossible, even stupid, to predict the distant future.

That scientific truth is rarely mentioned. Why? Because the global warming movement has now become a multi-billion dollar enterprise with thousands of jobs and millions in funding for NGOs and think-tanks, top jobs and prizes for scientists, and huge media coverage for predictions of disaster.

The vested interests in the global warming theory are now as strong, rich and politically influential as the biggest multinationals. It is no co-incidence that so many scientists sceptical of global warming are retired professors: they have no need to chase research grants and chairs.

As The Daily Stirrer has always said, if you want to get to the truth of anything, just follow the money.

Children Will Suffer As A Result Of This Labour Fraud

Ayoop readers, oop ‘ere in ‘t north there used to be a saying “what Manchester ( / Liverpool / Leeds / Bradford etc.) does today London will do tomorrow.
Though I am as convinced as any good Lancastrian of the superiority of all things north of Birmingham I sincerely hope this is no longer true.
The area health authority responsible for Greater Manchester has in its infinite wisdom decided to consolidate the vast conurbation’s five specialised Children’s Hospitals into one. The current locations are dotted around the cities major centres (remember that as well as Manchester itself, Greater Manchester contains Bolton, Wigan, Stockport, Oldham and Salford, all big towns in their own right,) so that the families of sick children can easily visit.

The plan is a fraud, the cash crisis being blamed for these closure threats is manufactured by stupid accounting methods. And as you might have guessed there is a huge Private Finance Initiative project to replace the hospitals with one centralised unit lurking in the wings.

In future when the scheme is implemented everybody will have to travel to the same central location. The five current hospitals are delivering the first class care all sick children need and making possible that other necessity, family support. Adults may be able to rationalise a scarcity of visits with the fact that specialist services cannot be provided in all local hospitals but children need to be reassured they have not been abandoned to their illness. Modern children may come across as arrogant little gobshites but in reality but underneath they are probably more insecure and emotionally fragile than my generation were fifty years ago. And so children in hospital need a lot of support from parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, siblings, friends and the whole extended network.
Unfortunately and inconveniently for the government bean counters behind this cost cutting scam, being ill is not confined to children from affluent, double – income families. Kids from single parent homes or of disabled, unemployed or just plain poorly paid parents are as likely, probably more likely to get sick.
Parents in such situations can ill afford frequent difficult and expensive trips across the city and so their children will suffer. No matter what we think of the parents, workshy skivers, drunken no-marks, trollops who don’t know how to keep their knickers on, it is not the children’s fault; they did not choose their parents.
As usual with this shoddy and dishonest government, deception, bureaucracy and bean counting take precedence over humane considerations.
Now the headline said children will suffer as a result. It will be difficult to link any deaths to this policy so we will have to save that for the threatened A & E closures (commented on here several weeks ago – as usual Little Nicky Machiavelli was ahead of the game) but children will suffer physical stress and parents will suffer emotional trauma as a result of the insane accounting methods this LABOUR government has imposed on the NHS in order, we believe, to prepare the health service for full privatisation based on the American model.

Get The Strength of the Fraud Companies Around You

You don’t have to be as old as I am to remember the advertising slogan “get the strength of the insurance companies around you.” That ad campaign and the images it conjured up of dry, pallid people sitting in brown, dusty offices counting money and doing endless little calculations in huge ancient ledgers persisted well into the nineteen eighties. The accompanying image of an insurance policy rolled and folded to look like a castle keep protecting a happy family of carefree parents and their two point four children also reeked of prudence and probity. Surely these people could be trusted to protect us from the consequences should we ever be foolish enough to abandon conformity and try to think for ourselves.
I’m sure it was once all true and valid but somewhere along the line, probably soon after Maggie Thatcher deregulated the financial markets the insurance companies changed and their moralistic advertising was revealed as a hypocritical sham. Your money would have been safer if you had invested in the 2:30 at Newmarket.
Chances are if you had invested in a with profits endowment policy with any of the leading providers any time in the last twenty years you would be looking at a loss. Ms Dwenna Georges knows Little Nicky speaks true for she did just that and is now out of pocket.
Let’s get this straight, the case is not that the lady will not get back anything like the sum she was led to believe the policy would return but that she will not even get back what she has paid in. On paper the loss is only £298 which if you say it quickly sounds like peanuts on a £60,000 investment but when we allow for inflation over a decade it is really quite substantial. Had Ms. Georges put her cash, £500 per month in a fuddy-duddy old Post Office savings account at two and a half per cent interest, the kind of investment that was derided by the brave new financial advisors of Maggie’s Brave New World she would now be looking, according to my very quick calculation at a lump sum of £68,900 rather than £59,700. And yet the insurance company involved has traded for years on its reputation for honesty and prudence, not to mention some intriguing ads featuring the rather attractive daughter of 007 Roger Moore, effing hell why am I being coy, its Scottish Widows although the excuses and citation of vague clauses in the very small print offered by its smarmy spokesman might sound more typical of the Mutual And Friendly Insurance Association. “Investors should be aware that their investments can go down as well as up,” or “cashing in a policy can often lead to getting back less than has been paid in,” the usual bullshit. The thing is Ms Georges thought she was buying a ten year policy, the sales literature which she still has talks of a ten year policy yet she signed up for a twenty year policy. It was a worse deal for her but a better one for the salesman.
Scottish Widows, like Norwich Union, Prudential and most of the others would like us to believe that we are all to stupid to understand money so we should not forget the endowment mortgage scandal and the pensions scandal. While these thieving scum are advertising their “ethical trading policies” they are simultaneously encouraging sales people to go out and LIE to the punters. Why? Little Nicky, having been a victim of legalised insurance fraud himself in a previous incarnation, will tell you why. Because if government and regulators made them tell the truth about their “financial products” we would all be bunging our money in Post Office Savings accounts (which pay considerably more than two and a half percent these days.

Let’s remember folks that while it was Maggie’s neo-cons who deregulated the fraud industry, the People’s Party have had nine years to change things but have only piled fuel on the fire.
