(PS-100: Guido Fawkes Shines Some Light To The Warmist’s Scam!)
Leonardo DiCaprio has made an error of Titanic proportions by mouthing off at theWorld Economic Forum in Davos. The Hollywood A-lister sternly warned the not so great and not so good that “our planet cannot be saved unless we leave fossil fuels in the ground where they belong”. Noble sentiments indeed, intended to force business leaders to take a Revolutionary Road to a lower emissions planet…
He went on to rail at the “corporate greed” of “entities with a financial interest in preserving this destructive system”, admirably lambasting the Wolves of Wall Street. Of course he didn’t mention that he’s earned a cool $250 million in his career, greedily demanding $25 million for one film alone. Isn’t that more than a Blood Diamond is worth?
Unfortunately poor Leo seems to have something of a sweet tooth when it comes to plane travel, in particular private jets. Accordingly the actor regularly jets around the world, even managing to use the services of one of Sony’s jets six times in six weeks. Well who can blame him – he wanted to get to The Beach at his private Shutter Island, so he hopped on the nearest available jet and Departed. Indeed Guido wonders how his colleagues in the film industry even keep up with globetrotting Leo – Catch Him If You Can, Scorcese.
This all came as quite a shock to Guido, who remembers him saying back in 2007 that he’d swapped the jetsetting for hybrid cars and solar panels. In the light of such staggering hypocrisy, some might say he’s The Great Twatsby…
A judge has refused Shadow Chancellor John McDonnell’s attempt to give evidence at the trial of 13 climate protesters accused of blockading a Heathrow runway. Plane Stupid supporters are alleged to have cut a hole in a fence at the airport before chaining themselves to railings on the north runway in July 2015. They apparently even wore nappies so they didn’t have to break the strike to nip to the loo…
McDonnell wanted to give evidence defending “the benefits of direct action”, yet District Judge Deborah Wright deemed what he had to say irrelevant:
“It (his witness statement) gives an opinion about the debate around the expansion of Heathrow and talks about the benefits of direct action, which he says may cause short term inconvenience. In order to allow his evidence to be given I have to be able to say that it is relevant. I am therefore not going to allow Mr McDonnell to give give evidence.”
The Indy have published some analysis on the fate of the UK’s renewable energy industry following the announcement of cuts to subsidy junkies. The research predicts that despite 2015 being a record year for renewable energy production, the industry is set to “fall off a cliff” as a result of withdrawn subsidies. This trend will continue until after 2020, when “the new renewables infrastructure will collapse to almost nothing because of a lack of investment”.
So it’s not the best time for the International Renewable Energy Agency to publish a report boasting that a global 36% renewable energy share is in reach, and will provide half the reduction in emissions required to hit the Paris summit targets. This is the renewable industry’s problem summed up. It needs shed-loads of taxpayer cash to survive, and when the subsidies are taken away it goes to the wall…
Guido has unearthed a gem from the FT’s archive. Back in 2013 Peter Wadhams toldthe FT that Arctic sea ice would disappear in the summer of 2016 Wadhams, who is head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group at Cambridge, claimed that we would see “the Arctic death spital”, going on to state:
““It could even be this year or next year but not later than 2015 there won’t be any ice in the Arctic in the summer”.
Unfortunately for Peter, who describes himself as the leading authority on the Arctic sea ice, it didn’t disappear last summer, and is in fact in significantly better shape than when he made the prediction back in 2012. Last year the minimum Arctic sea ice extent was 4.41 million square kilometres, compared to 3.39 million square kilometres in 2012. How inconvenient…
Peter of course predicted in The Guardian that the collapse in sea ice would trigger a significant increase in global warming:
“As the sea ice retreats in summer the ocean warms up (to 7C in 2011) and this warms the seabed too. The continental shelves of the Arctic are composed of offshore permafrost, frozen sediment left over from the last ice age. As the water warms the permafrost melts and releases huge quantities of trapped methane, a very powerful greenhouse gas so this will give a big boost to global warming.”
Again such predictions were wide of the mark, with no such vast increases having occurred in global warming since. Yet again the science gets in the way of Wadham’s overblown predictions…
The Guardian have decided to expand their admirably broad definition of what constitutes climate-change “denialism” to include those who doubt the viability of renewables sector for large scale energy production, instead preferring nuclear power. In an article released yesterday, Naomi Oreskes argues that a “new, strange form of denial that has appeared on the landscape of late, one that says that renewable sources can’t meet our energy needs”. Perhaps sensing the weakness in her argument she goes on to concede that some proponents of this new denialism are climate scientists themselves:
Oddly, some of these voices include climate scientists, who insist that we must now turn to wholesale expansion of nuclear power. Just this past week, as negotiators were closing in on the Paris agreement, four climate scientists held an off-site session insisting that the only way we can solve the coupled climate/energy problem is with a massive and immediate expansion of nuclear power. More than that, they are blaming environmentalists, suggesting that the opposition to nuclear power stands between all of us and a two-degree world.
Climate scientists just aren’t anti-industrial enough for The Guardian…
Parliament has given the green light for fracking below national parks by a majority of 37 votes. The bill was passed by 298 votes to 261, and will allow fracking 1200 meters below national parks, areas of natural beauty and world heritage sites. The victory will be welcome for pro-fracking Climate Secretary Amber Rudd, coming after MPs previously pledged an “outright ban” on fracking in national parks in January. Should give the anti-fracking lobby something to think about…
Readers who have been following Guido’s stories about the rotten borough of Suttonwill be aware of the stink around LibDem MP Tom Brake. Ecolocal, the prominent environmental charity of which Brake is a trustee, was oddly silent about plans to build a 300,000 tonne a year incinerator in the borough. Their silence is even more bizarre given Brake has spoken out in the past condemning “Toxic” incinerators.Something just doesn’t add up…
Brake insists he does not have a relationship with Viridor, the company which landed the £1 billion incinerator contract:
So it must be pure coincidence that two of Brake’s most significant financial sponsors, John and Elaine Drage, have confirmed they are lifelong friends of the former Viridor CEO Colin Drummond. Cosy.
Not only that, Brake’s election agent and donor Elaine is godmother to one of the Viridor chief’s sons. Very cosy.
And who attended the £75-a-head fundraiser Brake held back in March? Only two senior Viridor officials.
Tom Brake says he doesn’t have a “relationship with Viridor”, he just takes money from their mates and invites them to his parties…
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s big brother has been on This Week, where he wasted no time in laying into the theory of man-made climate change.
Readers will be well aware of the stench coming from the rotten borough of Sutton, where the LibDem council gave a £1 million discount to a company of which neighbouring MP Tom Brake is a trustee and unpaid director. Ecolocal, an environmental charity based in the borough, won its £600,000 bid for the historic local Lodge building, despite the council’s own valuations estimating it to be worth £1.5-1.7 million. That’s just the tip of the iceberg…
Before Ecolocal was awarded the discount, the eco-charity was oddly quiet about controversial plans to build a 300,000 tonne a year incinerator in the borough. Incinerator operators Viridor will be allowed to burn rubbish for 25 years with a taxpayer-funded contract worth £1 billion. Ecolocal is the premier environmental organisation in the borough, yet they were strangely silent. Surely they would have something to say?
The Brake-linked charity says its primary aim is to “help people move toward more pro-environmental behaviours”, yet had no comment about plans to build one of London’s largest waste incinerators inside their borough. Coincidentally they were then awarded a £1 million discount by the LibDem council, voted through by two of Brake’s own staff. Local councillor Nick Mattey says:
“Ecolocal would commit financial suicide if they criticised any element of the LibDem’s ‘environmental policy’. If the LibDems suggested that setting light to Battersea dogs home was green Ecolocal would stay mute.”
Curiouser and curiouser…
The building hosting the Paris climate summit has been adorned with the UN logo. Unfortunately for the climate bods, it’s the mirror image of US network Comedy Central’s hallmark. Who said climate scientists don’t have a sense of humour?
No doubt there will be an aide getting an earful for the gaffe. Guido suggests they take a lie down on some of the Google style sofas provided in the press area…
Proceedings got off to a shaky start at the Paris Climate Summit yesterday when protesters desecrated a memorial to terror victims, even going as far as throwing memorial candles at police. That really got on Guido’s wick…
Such deranged antics were small beer compared with the genuine wrong ‘uns who turned up today. Robert Mugabe kicked things off with an anti-capitalist rant expressing his “dismay” at the “miserly” developed countries that burden the developing world without “cleaning up the mess they themselves have created”. That put the iPhone-wielding, Starbucks-slurping protesters to shame…
That’s the same Mugabe whose agricultural reforms led to hyperinflation of 250 million percent. Please, tell us more about your plan for the environment…
Then came Bolivia’s Evo Morales, who readers will remember has spoken recently of the need to eradicate the “capitalist system of death”:
“Mother Earth is getting close to the end and the capitalist system is partly responsible for that. Capitalism has fostered and introduced and driven forward over the past 200 years the most savage and destructive formula against our species….Today we have a unique and historic responsibility with Mother Earth. Let us express our concern with the dramatic effects of climate change that threaten Pachamama”
Pachamama is is a fertility goddess that embodies Mother Earth, long revered in Inca mythology and by the indigenous people of the Andes. Nice to see the summit give a platform to rational and scientific arguments…
Guido is sorry to report that one of the world’s oldest meteorological stations has become somewhat neglected as of late. The Radcliffe Meteorological Station in Oxford has provided data since 1767 and has historically formed part of the Central England Temperature Record, often cited as “the longest instrumental record of temperature in the world“.
Unfortunately it appears that the climate scientists of today don’t hold the station in such high esteem, having decided to plonk a ventilator for a heated tent a few yards away from the highly sensitive temperature recording devices. Oops…
The Oxford School of Geography and the Environment, which oversees the station, states on its website that the centre can boast an “almost unparalleled record unbroken since 1815″, and that it sees “no reason why the Station should not continue to provide valuable data for at least the next two hundred years”. Unless of course the Bullingdon need another heated tent to throw a soiree, in which case temperatures may rise…
Guido was intrigued to hear Corbyn mention Israel positively, asking a question from Ziggy, Israel and Jay in PMQs today. Having done a bit of digging, we can reveal that Jezza neglected to mention that they are environmental activists affiliated with Friends of The Earth.
“Prince Charles will likely fly once again by private jet to Paris and be picked up by a convoy of gas guzzling motorcars in order to preach about cutting carbon emissions. At the start of this year he and Camilla were hosted by the Saudi Royal Family to use his special relationship with the monarchy to promote British interests. Perhaps he will use those connections to encourage the oil rich Gulf states to help tackle the threat from Islamic extremism and play their part in helping refugees in the region. Links between terror cells in Saudi Arabia and Islamic State are well established, and it is documented that a vast amount of funding for extremism is also coming from inside Saudi Arabia. Rather than make frankly ludicrous comments about climate change leading to Middle Eastern conflict, he actually has the right connections to say and do something useful.”
Readers will remember Piers Corbyn, Jeremy’s climate change-denying former Communist brother. What’s he up to these days? Lawyers for Labour-run Camden council have been called in to try to evict a group of dreadlocked hippie squatters from a council building, run by Piers. He was a squatters’ rights leader in the 1970s and declares: “I’m supporting this occupation!” In a bizarre twist, he has the backing of Downton Abbey’s bushy-eyebrowed butler Carson, real name Jim Carter. So a Labour council is taking legal action against their leader’s brother and his mates. Another Labour split!
The Guardian is having a field day following the publication of a report from theInternational Union for the Conservation of Nature. The paper endorsed the report’s rather sensationalised claims that polar bears are likely to have their numbers decimated […]
A stunning intervention into the realm of geopolitics from the Green Party, whose conspiracy theorist foreign affairs spokesman has told the BBC that ISIS are funded by the Rothschilds. Loony ex-Labour MP Tony Clarke told 5Live:

Readers will be well aware that the French establishment is going to great lengths to make sure that the upcoming Paris Climate Summit is a resounding success. Cars arebeing banned, climate-sceptic weatherman are being sacked, and tinpot Bolivian socialists are being cosied up to with reckless abandon. It is in this climate that the champagne industry has rather sheepishly revealed that, actually, global warming has been terrific for the production of bubbly.
Pierre-Emmanuel Tattinger, director of the eponymous champagne house, had this to say about the effect of climate change on his business:
“The impact of global warming in the Champagne region is that for the last two decades we have had hardly any major frosts. We have had much larger harvests and we have had largely excellent vintages for the last 20 years. So in the Champagne region, it’s positive. Even though I think globally climate change is a top priority, as far as I’m concerned global warming is the Third World War”
Guido can understand why he closed his remarks by warning about the impending climate apocalypse. It’s a wise idea to keep Mumm in the current political climate in France…
Why has climate change been so good for bubbly? Well the Champagne region in north-eastern France has seen a 1.2 degrees centigrade increase in temperature over the past 30 years, which has handily served to decrease frost damage, thus allowing for bigger harvests. It has also added 1% to the level of alcohol and reduced it’s acidity. Yes dear reader you did read that correctly: global warming is not only giving us more champagne, it’s also making it stronger and tastier.
Even the climate nuts have conceded that climate change is helping champagne producers. Just so everyone is Cristal clear on this: global warming is good news for bubbly.
Gaia has been reading through the climate proposals submitted by countries attending the fast approaching Paris Climate Summit, so you don’t have to. Best of the bunch is this offering from Bolivia, which argues:
“to find a lasting solution to the climate crisis we must destroy capitalism… a system of death… leading humanity towards a horizon of destruction”
The report goes on to demand climate reparations, including a twist of which Jeremy Corbyn would be proud:
“Allocate the resources of the military machinery of the imperial powers and the war-mongers to finance the activities of the peoples against climate change.”
To think critics have suggested the Paris Summit is suffering from a crisis of credibility…
Bolivian leader Evo Morales was in Paris on Monday to meet François Hollande:
If you look closely you can actually see him patting down François for “imperial war-monger” cash…
“I’m glad you asked me that question. We are 100% independent. We are funded and financed by absolutely nobody. We sell our information services to a wide range of people in both public and private sectors. Some of the European institutions happen to be among our clients, but they have absolutely no influence over the analysis that we produce.”
To recap, Agra won a €36,000 contract from the European Commission, and their consultancy sister arm won another €200,000 contract from the EU’s agriculture programme just last year. The claim that “we are funded and financed by absolutely nobody” is risible…
Anne Hidalgo, Paris’s Socialist Mayor, has won a battle with the French government to restrict driving during periods of particularly heavy pollution. Following a spike in pollution on Monday, alternate driving days for cars with odd and even number registration plates have been introduced for when air quality falls below a certain level. The move has been pushed through in the run-up to the Paris Climate Summitin December, with officials clearly anxious to quell any obstacles to the event running smoothly. However Guido’s not so sure that the French, known for theirnotoriously blasé attitude to transport regulation, will pay the blindest bit of notice to Ms. Hidalgo’s imperative. Are the police supposed to check the numberplate of every single car?
Hidalgo is known for her hard line stance towards the use of cars in the capital, even banning them from the city’s streets for a day earlier this year, and has previously stated that she aims to make the Seine so clean that by 2024 Parisians can bathe in it. So cars will be gone, but at least they can swim to work…
The National Grid has asked industrial users to switch to back-up power for the first time ever after multiple power plant failures left it short of supply. It will pay any company that agrees to do so — the first time such a “demand-side reduction” has ever been used. Unfortunately wind is only generating 0.59% of supply today…
The fact is that the supply / demand equation is too tight because old coal power stations have gone offline too soon. The lights have not gone off yet, though it could happen soon. Greens have held up new supply from coming online from conventional and nuclear sources…
France’s most popular weatherman Philippe Verdier has confirmed in a video that he has been sacked, having been suspended in mid-October for criticising top climate scientists in his new book, Climate Investigation. Verdier, who used to work for state-owned France 2, used his book to claim that publicly-funded climate change scientists have been “manipulated” and “politicized”, and that theIntergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has published intentionally misleading data.
The video below shows Verdier reading the letter, with the caption stating: ‘Philippe Verdier, journalist, weatherman. Fired by France Television one month before COP 21 [The Paris Climate Change Summit]’.
“Making these revelations in the book, which I absolutely have the right to do, can pose problems for my employer given that the government (which funds France 2) is organising COP. In fact as soon as you a slightly different discourse on this subject, you are branded a climate sceptic.”
Guido can understand why they wouldn’t want anything to ruin the lovely bash they’ve got planned…
Supermodel Cameron Russell is taking time out from her job as professional clothes horse to lead an army of models demanding “climate justice” from world leaders. Cameron and her high cheek-boned cohorts have taken to Instagram, posting selfies and sharing their thoughts on carbon emission, such as this recent missive from Russell herself:
“Yesterday, Hurricane Patricia made landfall in Mexico. It was the strongest hurricane ever recorded.This massive storm was a powerful wake-up call. And this week #exxonknew has been trending after journalists uncovered that ExxonMobil, the world’s largest and most powerful oil company, knew everything there was to know about climate change by the mid-1980s, and then spent the next few decades systematically funding climate denial and lying about the state of the science.”
They almost have Gaia convinced…

There are absolutely bucket loads more examples of the batty warmist spin and the green scam surrounding the various unscientific theories and claims made in the pretence that Climate Change and particularly Global Warming are man made!
For more example like those above do start at CLICK HERE
Strange when you think that after the last 29 ice ages that science claims to have occurred there has been very significant Global Warming.
Since the self same grouping of science alarmists, in order to perpetuate their income and various grants, presumably, had been warning of an impending ice age in the 1970s and early 1980s – were there any plausible facts or undisputed evidence to support the IPCC reports fanciful claims and alarmism, perhaps we should today be thanking mankind for his prodigious power in changing climate to avoid the ice age we were threatened with!
We are threatened by these same scientists with the extinction of polar bears – fancy that! When I was a child we were taught that the polar bear was threatened as there were only between 7 & 10,000 on the planet – their extinction is no closer now than then as estimates claim there are now around 30,000 in the wild alone!
To further personalise the issue I live a few 100 yard north of the Severn Estuary and Global Warming has altered this area hugely as during the last ice age it was ONE MILE deep in ice, Climate Change clearly has some merits ;-))
We believe the information gathered on this site can act to bring the truth, regarding the dishonesty of the claimed benefits of Wind Turbines (WT) to the front of people’s minds as they are regularly taxed, in a hidden tax, on their energy bills to fund these politically correct and fundamentally all but useless monstrosities.
We have gathered a great deal of information in our efforts to prevent the industrialisation of Stroat and the banks of the Severn Estuary and across the wider area including the Forest of Dean (FoD) as administered by The Forest of Dean District Council (FoDDC), areas of outstanding natural beauty (AoONB), sites of special scientific interest (SSI) & wildlife habitats.
Please help to spread the truth about the Wind Turbine scam and the fundamental flaws and lies of the ‘Warmists’ & self proclaimed ‘Greens’, which are presented as ‘fact’, regarding the anthropogenic influence of mankind on Global Warming and Climate Chance.
Arm yourself with facts to defeat the biggest con of the late 20th and early 21st Century, and do please spread the truth and the URL of this site as widely as you can.
