    Default Climate Change Theory Degenerates into farce

    Scientists pull an about face on global warming

    Imagine if Pope Benedict gave a speech saying the Catholic Church has had it wrong all these centuries; there is no reason priests shouldn't marry. That might generate the odd headline, no?

    Prof. Mojib Latif of Germany's Leibniz Institute has changed his mind on runaway warming.
    In fact he is clearly trying to extricate himself from the theory.

    Latif is one of the leading climate modellers in the world. He is the recipient of several international climate-study prizes and a lead author for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

    He has contributed significantly to the IPCC's last two five-year reports that have stated unequivocally that man-made greenhouse emissions are causing the planet to warm dangerously.

    Yet last week in Geneva, at the UN's World Climate Conference--an annual gathering of the so-called "scientific consensus" on man-made climate change -- Latif conceded the Earth has not warmed for nearly a decade and that we are likely entering "one or even two decades during which temperatures cool."

    The global warming theory has been based all along on the idea that the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans would absorb much of the greenhouse warming caused by a rise in man-made carbon dioxide, then they would let off that heat and warm the atmosphere and the land.

    But as Latif pointed out, the Atlantic, and particularly the North Atlantic, has been cooling instead. And it looks set to continue a cooling phase for 10 to 20 more years.

    It's about time our inept Government especially Micheal Martin, should stop making fools of themselves and the public.

    Saying Climate Change is caused by CO2 gas is like saying the banks are sufficiently capitalised. It was obvious to anyone with a modicum of intelligence that the banks were bust long before our TD's started to notice and long before the Regulator and Central bank did anything about it.

    When a major author of the IPCC's report is admitting the Climate is cooling and wont warm for another 10 or 20 years, it means the game is up on the science of "Climate Change".

    The Lisbon Treaty and impending Carbon Taxes must be strongly opposed for that reason.
    Cowardice asks the question - is it safe? Expediency asks the question - is it politic?
    Vanity asks the question - is it popular? But Conscience asks the question - is it right?
    And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular;but one must take it simply because it is right. -MLK

    It must be obvious to any thinking person at this stage that man made global warming is a load of codswallop.

    No, what should be obvious to any well-informed person is that the current climatic problems stem from both natural factors (gradual heating that will eventually make us go somewhat like the way of Venus) and man made factors that are accelerating the natural factors.

    Even though,Global warming is not real,we should still become more efficient.

    A lot of this climate change debate is really about wasting resources and those who wish to continue to waste resources.

    What do you think has caused the large increase in global temperatures since the beginning of the last century?

    If you switch the spark plugs in your motor vehicle to pulse plugs, you will lower the amount of fuel you use by 6%.


    Divide the amount it costs you each month on lights by 8.57142857 and it gives you the amount it would cost if it were LED instead of Incandescent.

    Well, it used to be that the answer to an unknown effect was God's divine and unknowable plan. (Or the Gods).

    Just because he doesn't know the answer doesn't mean your answer is right.

    Is the answer God?
