Ivo Vegter: When environmentalism becomes a crime against humanity

Do #Climate #Divest Environmentalists Want To Commit Genocide? http://wp.me/pPrQ9-wdC

vitamin-aGuest Post from Ivo Vegtor
These are strong words, but they’re no exaggeration. By whipping up groundless fears about genetically engineered foods and misinforming governments in developing countries, Greenpeace and other anti-GMO lobby groups are condemning millions of people to easily preventable malnutrition and death.

Patrick Moore, a co-founder* and former member of Greenpeace, has accused the environmental group of crimes against humanity over its opposition to Golden Rice, a genetically-modified variety that fortifies rice with vitamin A.

“They [Greenpeace] are wealthy Westerners flying in jets around the world telling other people to stop using fossil fuels,” he writes in an email to me. “They are well fed and they would deny a healthy diet to millions of poor children. They are guilty of a crime against humanity as defined by the International Criminal Court as they are ‘knowingly contributing to the suffering and death of civilian populations’.”

Global sea surface temperatures have warmed over the past 30 years, but there is no evidence the warming was caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gases. No evidence at all.

This post was written for persons who have seen my posts around the blogosphere for the past three and a half years, or have seen other bloggers discussing them, and have wondered what I was yakking on and on about—with the El Niño this and La Niña that. This post is a basic, down-to-Earth discussion of the causes of the warming of global sea surface temperatures over the past 30 years. It’s how data, not models, account for the warming. I’ve tried to make it as non-technical as possible.

Causes and Consequences of the Climate Science Boom

CJ Orach - peopleneedpower:

The forces that drive the Climate Change Movement are a combination of two strong human emotions. Pure greed and the quest for spiritual meaning in life. The irony that the life giving gas CO2 is their number one enemy completely escapes them. So in their quest to “save the earth” from CO2 emissions from fossil fuel they blow billions of tax payer dollars on useless “renewable” energy sources like wind and solar that require the use of fossil fuel from cradle to grave and is toxic to the environment. This wasteful expenditure of money fulfills two goals. It lines the pockets of the greedy green capitalists and fulfills the delusional spiritual needs of the environmentalists to “save the earth” The fact millions of poor people are doomed to death by fuel poverty so greedy people in the West can get rich and the environmentalists can “feel good” about themselves never dawns on them and if it does they sluff it off as everyone has to die some day .

Abstract

Scientific disciplines, like economies, can and do experience booms and busts.  We document a boom in climate science, sustained by massive levels of funding by government entities, whose scientific direction is set by an extra-scientific organization, the IPCC, which has emerged as a “big player” in the scientific arena, championing the hypothesis of anthropogenic global warming.  We note the difficulties in obtaining definitive empirical clarity due to the complex nature of climate, the feedback between the effects of the IPCC’s advocacy and the government’s willingness to fund the science, the ideological and political agendas at play, the dangers to the integrity of scientific procedure in the context of ideological bias, and the…

Is Obama turning America into a Police State?

The prosecution and targeting by the IRS of President Obama’s political opponents are the tactics of an autocrat. So is his Rule by Executive Fiat when Congress won’t pass his agenda as is his witch hunt against ideological opponents like the Climate Skeptics who disagree that the life giving gas CO2 is destroying the earth http://www.climatedepot.com/2015/03/06/watch-mits-dr-richard-lindzen-on-fox-news-we-are-demonizing-a-chemical-a-molecule-essential-to-life-co2/ 

But what is Obama’s end game? Is his aim not to build but to destroy the U.S.? In the preface to Dreams From My Father Obama makes clear he views “Western imperialism, racism, colonialism” as the “Core” Reason for Radical Islamic Violence and most of the ills of the world.  http://shar.es/1W8oJi Is this why he is willing to negotiate with Iran and provide them with the capability and materials to develop Nuclear Weapons?


Is Obama’s utopian vision to reconstruct the the United States along the concepts of Social Justice; Equality; and The Elimination of the Profit Motive via the use of government force? In other words transform America from a Capitalistic Nation into a  Socialistic/Communistic Nation? If this is his aim why is his Administration infested with filthy rich crony greens like Tom Steyer? Elitist rich who profit from the redistribution of private wealth by government fiat that line their pockets and impoverish the poor. The poor who end up being biggest victims of this utopian vision of “social justice”  that in main is driven by the quest for power and money.

Why Would Climate Alarmists Want To Destroy The Environment?

CJ Orach - peopleneedpower:

The aim of the green mafia is not to build but to destroy Western Civilization which they view as the reason for all the ills in the world. Filthy rich crony greens like Tom Steyer profit from this purposeful destruction of Capitalistic Western Civilization via the redistribution of private wealth and material resources by government fiat. The Green Mafia’s utopian vision is to reconstruct the West along “Social Justice” concepts of “equality”; Eliminate the profit motive and substitute it with service to the community. The problem with this utopian vision of “social justice” is it is driven by the quest for power and money.

The US was very successful at cleaning up the environment. But then the environmental movement was hijacked by big money pushing the global warming scam. What would happen if fossil fuels were banned?

Every tree in the forest would be cut down for firewood. The air would be thick with smoke from burning wood. Every animal in the forest would be hunted to extinction for food. Whales would be hunted to extinction for oil. It would be an environmental apocalypse.

Guest opinion by Paul Driessen

ISIL and other Islamist jihad movements continue to round up and silence all who oppose them or refuse to convert to their extreme religious tenets. They are inspiring thousands to join them. Their intolerance, vicious tactics and growing power seem to have inspired others, as well.

After years of claiming the science is settled and unprecedented man-made catastrophes are occurring right now, Climate Crisis, Inc. is increasingly desperate. Polls put climate change at the bottom of every list of public concerns. China and India refuse to cut energy production or emissions. Real-world weather and climate totally contradict their dire models and forecasts. Expensive, subsidized, environmentally harmful renewable energy makes little sense in world freshly awash in cheap, accessible oil, gas and coal.

Perhaps worse, Congress is in Republican control, and in 23 months…

Solar Doesn’t Work Under Two Feet Of Snow

At 37.9% of the total European commitment and at a capital cost of ~€200 billion Germany is the leader of Renewable Energy promotion and installation in Europe. But comparatively its investment in Renewables has been both the most expensive and also the least efficient overall.

This is primarily because of its excessive commitment, more than 50% of its installed Renewables, to Solar Photovoltaic power.

Germany has made these investments in the expectation that that its “Energiewende Energy Transition” policy would make the country a world leader in advances in Renewables. This optimistic approach is not being justified.

Onshore wind power in Germany accounts for ~35% of its massive Renewable investment but about half of its Renewable electricity output. German wind power operates at a relatively low level of capacity at ~18% or even less. Unsurprisingly Germany has almost the highest installation of Renewables / head of the European population, except for Denmark.

Large scale photovoltaics have cost some ~64% of Germany’s Renewable investment. But because of Germany Northern latitude and its often cloudy skies, photovoltaics operate with a capacity factor a capacity factor of only ~9%. As a result overall Germany’s renewables operate at an overall capacity factor of less than 14%.


In addition Germany, by policy, is withdrawing from Nuclear electricity generation after the Fukushima tsunami. As a result Germany is now installing coal fired generating plant as rapidly as possible to maintain base load power. These new plants burn either lignite, (the most polluting type of coal and CO2 emissive fuel), or ordinary coal. These plants have no facility for Carbon Capture and Storage, probably because German engineers have realised that CCS in operation is a costly engineering fallacy. This is a sensible approach because were it to work at all, Carbon Capture and Storage, CCS, can be viewed as a costly way to throw away comparatively miniscule amounts of useful plant food.

In spite of the fact that Renewable Energy output has grown about fourfold, there has been an overall increase of CO2 emissions from Germany since the year 2000.

So far by 2013 Germany had invested very little, less than 1%, in Offshore Wind Power development and its experience has been poor, emphasising the technical difficulties of ever making large scale Offshore power fully operational. Even if large scale Offshore wind power in the North sea were eventually successful there is also a major question about the non existence of suitable high capacity transmission lines across Germany from the North to its Southern industrial heartlands.

It seems incredible that Germany, a Nation with such great engineering and pragmatic prowess, could have become so convinced about Renewable Energy especially the use of Solar Energy to make such a grossly unwise investments.

#Climate Crooks Can’t Handle The Truth

Powerful forces within western elites led by Obama and the Democratic Party have been pushing the AGW myth for decades. They have invested huge amounts of time & money trying to convince the world of their climate alarmist theories. However, with the #Climategate revelations and given the fact their doomsday Climate forecasts have failed to materialize, they have lost significant credibility. Thus they resort to smearing anyone who dares to challenge their disproven by reality dooms day Climate Theories. 

 

Public opinion polls clearly substantiate that the alarmists continue to lose momentum as public interest and more pressing issue arise like Radical Islamic Terrorism and the realization that their preferred alternatives to fossil fuel (renewables) don’t work most of the time. When there is no sun or wind (or in the case of solar panels under two feet of snow) renewables need a fossil fuel or battery back up to keep the lights on. Moreover, despite billions blown on renewables in Germany Germany can’t keep their lights on without massive Russian Coal imports which are at their highest level since 2006… http://tinyurl.com/offu4vv People have figured out that it is pure insanity to blow billions of tax payer dollars on wind and solar that stop working during those cold winter days under six feet of snow that the Climate Alarmists predicted the world would never see again due to man made global warming. 
 

 

The bottom line is the empirical evidence does not support the theory that CO2 emissions from fossil fuel have had a significant impact on climate. The computer climate models that the IPCC uses to promote global warming have ALL failed the test of reality. The Climate models projected temperatures when compared with observed temperatures over the last 18 years are not going up as the Models predicted. And to add insult to injury the divergence between projected temperatures and observed temperatures is INCREASING. When there is NO empirical evidence to support the Alarmists Climate Theory the theory can no longer be called “science” It is a Religion.
Given all of this desperation by the climate alarmists their only recourse is the shabby treatment and smear campaigns of prominent climate scientists who dare to expose their lies. What is even more troubling is that it is the warmists who are the guilty parties when it comes to being on the take for big oil funding. See The Long List Of Warmist Organizations and Scientists Who Haul In Huge Money From BIG OIL And Heavy Industry! http://shar.es/1WjYqr Let’s see the Democrats investigate the influence BIG OIL has on Warmists. Money Big Oil would get from Carbon Trading perhaps?
