A video I made back in 2008…..seemed like a good time to re-load it.
I would like to thank the folks at Global warming denial for including this blog in their list. Inclusion with the many great organizations who work so hard to expose the Fraud of MMGW/Climate Change, is truly an honour.

Gore is and always has been a con man. Google Al Gore and Enron or Al Gore and Maurice Strong. The Liberal Party of Ontario is involved in the scam. Either that or McGuinty and his party are completely stupid.
Either way, they must change direction or be brought to justice.
Watch Gore squirm in this C-Span video.
I want to thank Norma, one of our readers, for sending this important press release.
Since I started this blog, over two years ago, I’ve been saying that Global Warming is a scam and so are wind farms. The idea of wind farms was to save us from Global Warming/Climate Change caused by CO2 emissions.
CO2 never was a problem, therefore, there is no need for wind farms – CO2 was chosen as the “bogey man” to scare the populace into accepting the NEW WORLD ORDER!
Global Warming/Climate Change is and was a false fear cooked up by the Club of Rome and the IPCC, both arms of the UN.
Global Warming/Climate Change, pushed by the many NGO’s, all spawned by the UN or UN affiliated agencies, is the vehicle being used to gain ‘Control of the World’ and put in place the “New World Order” where everything and everyone will be ruled by a group of unelected elites, if they are successful.
If you haven’t noticed, it has been getting cooler not warmer for a long time now.
Please read the PRESS RELEASE and understand the scope of the SCAM that is being perpetrated upon you and your families.
The time has come for everyone, and I mean everyone, to call, write, fax. e-mail and visit your elected officials and demand a stop to this FRAUD.
It’s time to fill your local halls and churches and make plans to take back your communities and countries.
The dangerous gas is not CO2 – it’s the gas being emitted every time one of the “GREEN CULT” members open their mouths.
The choice is yours – Live free – or accept the FRAUD as reality!
Read the Green Agenda – NOW!
Space and Science Research Center 4700 Millenia Blvd. Ste. 175 Orlando, FL 32839 Tel: 407-835-3635 Fax: 407-210-3901 http://www.spaceandscience.net PRESS RELEASE SSRC 1-2009 Thursday, January 8, 2009 8:00 PM Obama Climate Change Advisers Holdren and Lubchenco Are Told Global Warming Is Over Time to Prepare the US for the New Cold Era The Space and Science Research Center (SSRC), today releases a letter mailed on January 1, 2009 to President-elect Barrack Obama’s nominated science adviser Dr. John Holdren and nominated NOAA administrator Dr. Jane Lubchenco clearly stating that “…global warming is over; a new cold climate has arrived.” In this letter, SSRC Director John Casey calls on Dr. Holdren to immediately reverse course on global warming programs and start preparing the country for the next climate change. Since the early 2007 discovery of the solar cycles that according to Casey drive our climate over a period of about 200 years, he and later the SSRC have been on a mission to get the word out to government leaders and media representatives in order to prepare the US for the coming bitter cold era. In explaining the reason for this first press release of 2009, Mr. Casey says,” There can no longer be any doubt that the Sun has entered an historic period of dramatically reduced activity which will bring us many long years of deep cold weather. This was predicted by me and a few other scientists around the globe but of course we were not taken seriously because of the politics of global warming and the refusal of many media outlets to print or telecast alternatives to the now discredited man made global warming concept. According to national and international sources that monitor the Sun, what is happening on and in the Sun is nothing short of record setting, astounding, and at the same time worrisome. The solar wind is at its lowest level in fifty years. The surface movement on the Sun has slowed to record rates and according to NASA’s previous announcements is ‘off the bottom of the charts.’ Most telling is the current prolonged lack of sunspots between the normal 11 year solar cycles 23 and 24 which is about to set a one hundred year record for time without sunspots. NASA also has long since forecast that cycle 25 will be ‘one of the weakest in centuries.” All of these events in combination leave little doubt that a ‘solar hibernation’ lasting several decades delivering the coldest weather in over two centuries has in fact arrived.” In its last press release of 2008, the SSRC had warned President-elect Obama in its sternest language to date, of the coming cold and genuine apprehension about climate change campaign promises and recent appointments. The release expressed that such actions in support of anthropogenic global warming would create a punitive and restrictive atmosphere for scientists who oppose the belief that greenhouse gas emissions were the primary agents of climate change and that the ill-effects of the new cold weather without government assistance and preparation, would lead to a ‘worst case scenario’ for the American people. Director Casey repeated his long standing position on the next climate change with the comment, “The longer we delay the necessary nation-wide preparations for the coming cold era the more difficult it will be. If the extremist rhetoric of man made climate change advocacy takes hold in the Obama administration which at this point is at fever pitch, then the stage will be set for the new cold climate to catch us completely off guard and unprepared. This will cause many Americans to suffer needlessly.” He added further, “The Earth has been in a long term cooling trend technically for eleven years. The significant drop in global temperatures that also occurred between January 2007 and much of 2008 should have been enough for most observers to finally accept that global warming is over, except that this information was intentionally not passed on to the American people. Also and unfortunately, the Presidential campaign where both major parties continued to beat the drum of global warming and man made climate change only helped to cement in the flawed concept that mankind was more powerful and had more influence on the Earth’s climate than the Sun itself. This unbelievable idea has been pushed heavily by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This and the previous press release are intended to be no nonsense, to the point pleadings for some sanity in our government and the main stream media that have failed to accept the new climate reality. Specifically, it was the Sun and not man that caused the past twenty years of peak heating and it is the same Sun that through a dramatic decline in its activity will now bring us decades of extreme cold climate.” In a closing statement Casey reiterated, “The global warming of the past decades was caused by the Sun. It is now over. It will not return based upon the SSRC’s research, for at least thirty years. It will then return only because the Sun’s repeating cycles of activity are scheduled to pick up again at that time. We should not waste another minute, another penny in controlling something that simply does not exist, namely man made climate change and global warming. It is essential for the welfare of all Americans if not the world, that in light of these new and startling changes in the Earth’s temperature and the profound changes in the Sun, that the next administration initiate a top-down review and redirection of climate change policy as soon as President Obama takes office.” Letter to Dr. Holdren
Does Gore have to be the last believer in MMGW before we can put this fraud to bed once and for all.

U. S. Senate Minority Report:
More Than 650 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims
Scientists Continue to Debunk “Consensus” in 2008
Over 650 dissenting scientists from around the globe 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 231-page U.S. Senate Minority Report — updated from 2007’s groundbreaking report of over 400 scientists who voiced skepticism about the so-called global warming “consensus” — features the skeptical voices of over 650 prominent international scientists, including many current and former UN IPCC scientists, who have now turned against the UN IPCC. This updated report includes an additional 250 (and growing) scientists and climate researchers since the initial release in December 2007. The over 650 dissenting scientists are more than 12 times the number of UN scientists (52) who authored the media-hyped IPCC 2007 Summary for Policymakers.
The chorus of skeptical scientific voices grow louder in 2008 as a steady stream of peer-reviewed studies, analyses, real world data and inconvenient developments challenged the UN’s and former Vice President Al Gore’s claims that the “science is settled” and there is a “consensus.” On a range of issues, 2008 proved to be challenging for the promoters of man-made climate fears. Promoters of anthropogenic warming fears endured the following: Global temperatures failing to warm; Peer-reviewed studies predicting a continued lack of warming; a failed attempt to revive the discredited “Hockey Stick”; inconvenient developments and studies regarding rising CO2; the Spotless Sun; Clouds; Antarctica; the Arctic; Greenland’s ice; Mount Kilimanjaro; Global sea ice; Causes of Hurricanes; Extreme Storms; Extinctions; Floods; Droughts; Ocean Acidification; Polar Bears; Extreme weather deaths; Frogs; lack of atmospheric dust; Malaria; the failure of oceans to warm and rise as predicted.
In addition, the following developments further secured 2008 as the year the “consensus” collapsed. Russian scientists “rejected the very idea that carbon dioxide may be responsible for global warming”. An American Physical Society editor conceded that a “considerable presence” of scientific skeptics exists. An International team of scientists countered the UN IPCC, declaring: “Nature, Not Human Activity, Rules the Climate”. India Issued a report challenging global warming fears. International Scientists demanded the UN IPCC “be called to account and cease its deceptive practices,” and a canvass of more than 51,000 Canadian scientists revealed 68% disagree that global warming science is “settled.”
This new report issued by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee’s office of the GOP Ranking Member is the latest evidence of the growing groundswell of scientific opposition challenging significant aspects of the claims of the UN IPCC and Al Gore. Scientific meetings are now being dominated by a growing number of skeptical scientists. The prestigious International Geological Congress, dubbed the geologists’ equivalent of the Olympic Games, was held in Norway in August 2008 and prominently featured the voices of scientists skeptical of man-made global warming fears.

If you are fighting wind farms in North America, you are not alone. You have probably been told how well wind is working in Europe (it’s not) and that we should do the same. Well we should do the same.
Stop the wind scourge now!
Saturday Oct 4th, in Paris, 2000 to 3000 people coming from France and
various European countries demonstrated peacefully against windfarms.
Antoine Waechter was among them. Green candidate in the 1988 French
presidential election, Mr Waechter subsequently split from the Greens to
found the Independent Ecological Movement. He is shown on the picture
reading my placard. To the right of the picture, the mayor of a village in
France whose inhabitants ALL decided to sell their houses when a windfarm
project was announced in the vicinity. If you wish to know more about the
Village for Sale, please advise.
We received messages of support coming from all over the
world, including Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada, Puerto Rico,
Ecuador, South Africa, Japan and Slovenia. See :
The demonstration and conference was backed by 176 associations and
federations : http://collectif.4.octobre.free.fr/
An international platform against windfarms was founded the same day, as
*Paris, Saturday Oct. 4th 2008
*Founding of the European Platform Against Windfarms (EPAW). *
*In Paris today, on the occasion of the international demonstration against
wind farms, German, Belgian, Spanish and French federations and associations
have founded the European Platform Against Windfarms (EPAW).
This project has received the support of colleagues from 16 countries
representing several hundred federations and associations.
The founding members of this platform have agreed to make the following
*1) Ecological deception and financial scandal*.
It has now been proved that industrial windpower does not reduce CO2
emissions and therefore does not contribute
to the fight against global warming. This is principally due to the
intermittent and uncontrollable nature of wind, which makes it necessary to
rely on the back-up of polluting fossil-fuels power stations, 24 hours a
Industrial windpower is subsidized by the taxpayer-consumer.
In France for example, if the national plan is realized ( 12,500 wind
turbines ! ) this burden will amount to 2.5 billion euros annually. In
Germany, it is already costing 4 billion euros a year.
At a time when Europe is facing a deep economic crisis, it is not acceptable
that the standard of living of Europeans be further reduced in favour of
businessmen whose objective seems to be maximizing profits whatever the
Industrial windfarms are a threat to the environment.
Landscapes, the natural and cultural heritage, wildlife, quality of life,
the security and health of Europeans are in danger !
*2) The demands made by EPAW : an immediate moratorium and more
The platform demands an immediate moratorium with the suspension of all
windfarm projects, approved or not.
The platform demands that be assessed, under the control of an independent
body, the objective and undisputable effects of wind farms from an
energetical, ecological and social point of view – respectively.
The platform finally demands that the guaranteed pricing of wind-produced
electricity be made the object of both a public and a parliamentary debate,
at national and european levels.

I hope this helps you understand the massive fraud that is taking place under the guise of saving the environment. It doesn’t matter if you call it a carbon tax or cap and trade, it should be recognized for what it is.
Although the European emissions trading scheme (ETS) is set to cost electricity generators (and thus us, the customers) £2 billion over the next four years – as permits go up for auction – other major industrial companies are set to make hundreds of millions out of the EU’s “generosity”.
This is according to The Guardian, which is reporting that many companies have been over-allocated with emission permits, equivalent to nine million tons of carbon dioxide – all of which can be sold for cash.
Some 200 companies are beneficiaries covering all sectors, from steel and cement making, to car manufacturing and the food and drink industry. Says The Guardian, dozens of household names such as Ford, Thames Water, Astra Zeneca, Heathrow Airport, Toyota and Vauxhall are among the companies that could benefit.
One of the largest beneficiaries is Castle Cement, which makes a quarter of all British cement at three works in Lancashire, north Wales (pictured) and Rutland. While total CO2 emissions from the three plants have fallen from 2.3m metric tons in 2005 to 2.1m in 2007, they have been allocated 2.9m metric ton in permits for each of the next five years – an annual surplus of 829,000 permits.
At the current price of £21 per metric ton, the company could sell its surplus permits for £83.5m over the five years.
Perversely, some enterprises have been allocated fewer permits than they require, not least the Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. It is predicting an annual deficit of 5,800 and is thus needing to siphon over £120,000 a year from its clinical budget to buy extra permits.
And, not only is the electricity industry having to pay for its permits, it is also 70 million metric tons short on allocation, which it will have to buy on the open “carbon” market. At current prices, that is nearly £1.5 billion added to our electricity bills.
The Guardian cites Bryony Worthington, founder of the campaigning group Sandbag, who notes that this “… means electricity customers are effectively subsidising heavy industry’s right to pollute, while being urged to make environmental sacrifices in their own lives.”
And that is they way things now work in this country – courtesy of our new masters in Brussels. But, from an organisation that brought us the Common Fisheries Policy, did we ever expect anything else?

Here is a paper for dullards like me who didn’t understand the implications of trying to hook highly variable wind power into a power grid. The bottom line is that effective usage is low and that actual replacement effect is even lower:
A power station takes days to start producing electricity from a cold start. Time is needed to boil the water, to superheat the steam, to warm all the components of the power station, and to spin the turbogenerators up to operating speed.
Each power station is designed to provide an output of electricity. It can only provide very little more or very little less than this output (i.e., a power station has a “low turndown ratio”).
The problem of matching electricity supply to varying demand is overcome by operating power stations in three modes called “base load,” “generation,” and “spinning standby.”
Some power stations operate all the time providing electricity to the grid, and they are said to provide “base load.”
Other power stations also operate all the time but do not provide electricity all the time. They burn (or fission) their fuel to boil water and superheat the resulting steam which is fed to the steam turbines that are thus kept hot and spinning all the time. Of course, they emit all the emissions from use of their fuel all the time. But some of this time they dump heat from their cooling towers instead of generating electricity, and they are then said to be operating “spinning standby.”
One or more power stations can be instantly switched from spinning standby to provide electricity to match an increase to demand for electricity. It is said to be operating “generation” when it is providing electricity. Power stations are switched between spinning standby and generation as demand for electricity changes.
Thus the grid operator manages the system to match supply with demand for electricity by switching power stations between “generation” and “spinning standby.”
So if you are installing a bunch of new coal power plants to handle load, you will really be running them all the time with very little savings of fossil fuels. You can control some of the grid surge by diverting the power production away from the grid when your wind kicks in, but that of course doesn’t change fuel consumption very much.

Editor: In Canada, we are continually told that we need to follow the German and EU example. If we want to watch our companies flee to China and India and see our unemployment rise dramatically, while our standard of living plummets, then by all means lets jump on the EU bandwagon.
Al Gore – the high priest of the “Global warming scam” and the architects of the “Green Agenda” must be exposed, before they have destroyed the worlds greatest economies. Their aim is not so much about saving the environment as it is about control and power.
The Green Agenda
Killing Jobs to Save the Climate
The price of European emission
permits is rising so rapidly that German companies are threatening to
leave the country. Thousands of jobs could be lost. And the environment
may, in the end, be no better off.
They sat silently through two lectures, but then they couldn’t
control their anger any longer. The civil servants from the Environment
Ministry, the Environment Agency and the German Emissions Trading
Authority made it sound easy for industry to take up carbon trading. It
was just too much for the managers to tolerate.
“If that’s the shape the trading will take, we will simply move our
cement operation to Ukraine,” a cement factory manager shouted into the
lecture hall. “Then there won’t be any trading here, nothing will be
produced here anymore — the lights will simply go out here.”
The businessmen’s anger surprised the emissions-allowance trading
experts. They had invited industry representatives to a relaxed forum
at the Environment Ministry’s office in Bonn. They wanted to present
international developments in the carbon trading market. However, the
mood in the German business world has soured — managers no longer have
the stomach for academic lectures. The reason is that emissions
allowances are already burdening some companies that require a lot of
energy for production purposes.
In the last 12 months alone, the price for the right to pump a ton
of carbon into the atmosphere has shot up from €23 ($36.5) to nearly
€30 ($47.6), according to the European Energy Exchange in Leipzig. This
hike of around 30 percent has a direct effect on the electricity
production of power companies.
According to calculations by Point Carbon — a Norwegian company
that specializes in analyzing global power, gas and carbon markets –
this price hike would drive up the marginal cost of energy from an old
brown coal power plant by the entire price of carbon. For modern
natural gas power plants, it would increase prices by a third. Energy
company RWE, which is based in the German city of Essen, reckons it
alone will have to pay €9 billion ($14.2 billion) for its own
electricity production, which it, of course, will pass on in higher
electricity prices. So carbon trading will have a direct impact on
which countries firms chose to locate in.
“If the cement industry is gradually pulled into the trading of
carbon emission allowances, companies will move production to countries
that don’t take part in the scheme,” Andreas Kern, President of the
German Cement Industry Federation, has warned.
Thousands of Jobs in Danger
Mr. McGuinty, have a taste of reality.
Your energy policy is a disaster for the Province and its citizens. Everyday, more people understand the error of your ways.
To date the media has been quiet, but they too are becoming informed of your flawed policies, thanks to everyday citizens. The media will turn on you and that change is not far off.
You have neglected Health Care, Education, Manufacturing and Agriculture in your quest to save us from the nonexistent global warming, climate change “boogie man”.
In the process you have put the above in jeopardy, while squandering billions.
The province of Ontario belongs to us, not you and your cable (a combination or clique of partisans of any kind, acting for their own interests, especially if greedy, clamorous, and reckless of the common good.) of fools.
Never forgot to fear the voter Mr. McGuinty
Wake up Mr. Mcguinty - wake up to the reality of what you are doing to this once proud Province.
You are fast becoming the main character in
“The Emperor has no Clothes”
McGuinty – UN Puppet
Do what your energy adviser suggested – Put the scrubbers on the coal plants and build a nuke.
Is Germany’s ‘Climate Chancellor’ a Failure?
By Dirk Kurbjuweit and Christian Schwägerl
A year after pitting herself against the world’s leaders over climate change, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has backed down and gone silent on key environmental policies. It seems that the one opponent she can’t bear confronting is the German voter.
The German chancellor in Greenland: Once a hero to environmentalists worldwide, Angela Merkel is faltering badly on climate change policy.
This is the so-called “climate chancellor?” This woman who, at the International Transport Forum in Leipzig, spoke enthusiastically about the nearby air freight hub, economic growth and the transport of goods? Who suddenly seems awkward and at a loss for words when it comes time to talk about climate protection? Who has stopped offering answers on the subject and only asks questions, like: Does it make sense to subsidize electricity from renewable sources? Is it fair to expect the owners of older cars with high CO2 emissions to pay higher taxes?
Environment Minister Gabriel repeatedly makes a big production out of his efforts to impose as little a burden as possible on citizens, especially those of lesser means. However, the tenants’ rights fight only intensified the battle between the environment and economics ministries, which is crippling the government.
Staffers at the Economics Ministry say that Gabriel’s officials are pleased when the citizen suffers. In return, the Environment Ministry maintains that the Economics Ministry does everything in its power to prevent anything that works. The relationship between Glos and Gabriel, the most important relationship in Merkel’s cabinet when it comes to climate policy, isn’t working.
The government has not even managed to ensure that consumers can gain access to electricity generated by wind turbines. Many hundred kilometers of new power lines are needed to transport electricity from the plants in northern and eastern Germany to the country’s south, where a number of nuclear power plants are scheduled to be gradually phased out. The necessary expansion of the power grid has been held up by citizen protests, red tape and costs.
To address these problems, Economics Minister Glos supports a law that is now scheduled to be part of the cabinet resolution on June 18. But because he fears citizens’ initiatives against new power lines, Environment Minister Gabriel advocates the installation of underground power lines, which are several times as expensive as overhead lines. The conflict has made potential investors nervous for months.
