Breaking: Eminent Scientist May be Jailed for Faking Climate Emails
johnosullivan
In a sensational public confession a leading climatologist, Peter Gleick has admitted to taking part in a high-profile climate emails forgery that has backfired; says it was done to intentionally injure skeptic foundation.

 

Britain’s pro-green national daily, ‘The Guardian’  was the first major newspaper to break the news that Dr. Peter Gleick had confessed to unlawfully libeling the prominent climate skeptic supporter, the Heartland Institute (HI). Heartland is a 28-year-old national nonprofit organization with offices in Chicago, Illinois and Washington, DC. Its mission is “to discover, develop, and promote free-market solutions to social and economic problems.”

Stopping short of specifically admitting he was the author of the faked Heartland Institute document, Gleick nonetheless spilled the beans that he was a co-conspirator, via the Huffington Post  late last night (February 20, 2012).  Gleick admits that his political bias on climate catastrophism led him to commit “ a serious lapse of my own and professional judgment and ethics.” 

 In reply Heartland Institute President Joseph L. Bast immediately issued an official statement declaring,

 "Gleick's crime was a serious one. The documents he admits stealing contained personal information about Heartland staff members, donors, and allies, the release of which has violated their privacy and endangered their personal safety.”

 Climate Criminality to Promote Failing  Alarmist Agenda

 Gleick, an eminent climate scientist promoting the man-made global warming meme, had jumped off his lofty establishment pedestal to admit that he had knowingly intented to cause injury and defame HI, a registered charity.

 Dr. Gleick added he would “not comment on the substance or implications of the materials.” But there can be no doubt that the tone of his letter suggests it was drafted under the direct guidance of an attorney.

Heartland Institute lawyers have announced they will mount a prosecution in a civil court for knowingly using a fraudulent instrument to inflict intentional injury upon the prominent skeptic foundation.

 Jail Time Possible for Conspiring in a Criminal Conspiracy

 The consequences for Gleick are very grave. HI President Bast added, “A mere apology is not enough to undo the damage.”

So not only does Gleick face being financially ruined by a civil prosecution, he is also liable to a criminal investigation as such falsification of documents is a well-known brand of white collar crime

Gleick, a water expert, has implicated himself in passing along copies of documents that he admits he knew to be false. In most states, including Washington D.C., falsifying a document is a crime punishable as a felony. He may serve jail time if convicted.

No Way Back for BBC's "Visionary on the Environment"

 But in addition, Dr. Gleick very probably will be compelled to step down from public life and resign his prominent positions now his reputation is in tatters. Gleick is president and co-founder of the Pacific Institute and UC Berkeley Alum. {C}{C}In 2001, Gleick was dubbed a "visionary on the environment" by the British Broadcasting Corporation. In 2006 he was elected to the National Academy of Sciences, Washington, D.C. Here is a video of Gleick denouncing skeptics at UC Berkeley's Annual Sustainability Summit in April 2011.

 But on a broader front, the debacle constitutes a devastating own-goal for the billion-dollar climate alarmist industry.

 From the outset of the leak, trumpeted by global doomsaying mouthpiece, DeSmoglblog, Heartland's president Joseph Bast had announced that the two-page memo was a fake – "A mere apology is not enough to undo the damage," Bast said in a statement. But extremist climate alarmist outlets had failed to heed Bast’s warning that HI would sue for damages anyone who re-published the counterfeit correspondence. Now DeSmogblog, Gleick and other unprincipled accomplices will surely face heavy civil liabilities if Bast’s lawyers file suit for damages.

Richard Littlemore, of DeSmogblog, has already defiantly refused to remove the material Gleick admits is fake. The most egregious lie in Gleick's mendacious memo was the claim that skeptics were out to repress science, the kind of fakery Littlemore has form for promoting.

DeSmog Blog, laughingly claiming its mission is to “clear the PR pollution that clouds climate science,” is suspected of being implicated in the Gleick fraud. It is now in line to suffer defeats in three climate libel lawsuit - adding to the two vexatious claims against Canada’s most popular climatologist, Dr. Tim Ball, a vociferous campaigner against climate criminals.

Heartland Calls Gleick Confession “Unbelievable”

Gleick disingenuously claims he received the fake document “At the beginning of 2012” and that he “solicited and received additional materials directly from the Heartland Institute under someone else’s name.”

But this statement appears at odds with the timeline and forensic evidence and was promptly denounced by Bast who responded, “This too is unbelievable. Many independent commentators already have concluded the memo was most likely written by Gleick.” Bast also disputed Gleick's account that he had received the first document – the faked two-page memo – from an anonymous source.

But diehard zealots of the climate cult are rallying behind their man. One such crank is Scott Mandia, co-founder of the climate science rapid response team, who chipped in, “He [Gleick] is the hero and Heartland remains the villain.”

Although fellow pro-green activist, Andrew Revkin was more restrained admitting,Those actions may have undercut an entire career.” Revkin went on to accept that "Gleick's use of deception in pursuit of his cause after years of calling out climate deception has destroyed his credibility and harmed others."

No doubt retractions of such vituperative invective, as found on the Vancouver Sun, will surely proceed apace and grovelling apologies will be published. Heartland’s statement on the matter is so bullish and legally compelling that any pro-green media outlets declining to comply are  best advised to lawyer up pronto.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 







Top Weather Forecaster Slates UK Government Drought ‘Swindle’
johnosullivan
World leader in long-range weather forecasting, Piers Corbyn mounts a scathing attack on British government ministers for ‘connivance in swindling the public’ and ignoring proven successes of world-leaders, WeatherAction.

The outburst (February 20, 2012) was in response to an announcement that Environment Secretary Caroline Spelman
today called a meeting of water companies, farmers and experts to discuss ways of tackling the growing British drought problem.

This winter has been the driest for 40 years. East Anglia, the East Midlands and the South East have been the worst affected. Warnings are being issued that restrictions on water use for households and businesses could be introduced, unless there is significant rainfall soon.

Pauline Smith from the Environment Agency said: "We've had two dry winters now, and as a consequence of that, reservoirs haven't refilled, underground water stores haven't refilled, and it means we are heading towards a summer that could be quite difficult." The 'drought summit' - organized by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs - will meet on Monday February 20, 2012.


Piers Corbyn of WeatherAction.com, an acknowledged world leader in successful long-range weather forecasters, immediately hit back:

"The Govt, Environment Agency and some water companies say they are worried about potential drought conditions developing this year, however they appear to be not interested in knowing whether such conditions might actually develop.”

Barbecue Summers and Mild Winter Fiascos Discredit Met Office

Anger is building among those whose livelihoods depend on reliable long-range forecasts because the Met Office, the British Government's advisers, has failed to forecast ANY of the extreme seasons/months since 2007. By contrast, Corbyn’s maverick service has maintained a steady success rate above 80 percent accuracy.An infuriated Corbyn blasted,

"WeatherAction correctly forecast the key features in all the extreme months/seasons since 2007 while the Met Office failed. The relative successes being 7 to zero.“

The London-based WeatherAction’s front man pointedly drew attention to the fact the Met Office has been consistently and diametrically wrong in it’s predictions (remember those supposed 'barbecue summers' which turned into floods and the supposed 'mild winter months' which turned out record cold?).

In stark contrast Corbyn’s forecasts for Summer and Autumn 2011 and Winter 2011-12 have been
widely praised.

Corbyn cites the reason for the obstinacy of ministers to listen to him: the lingering man-made global warming scam. The Met Office has been the biggest spin-doctor of the climate catastrophism and has benefited to the tune of hundreds of millions for riding the climate gravy train.

"If the Govt and water companies and others involved want to know what Spring and Summer will be like they could ask us to help,” says 65-year-old Corbyn.

However (apart from some notable exceptions in the water industry and farming) it seems the UK’s political elite actively aren’t bothered in sound science because Corbyn has been a vociferous critic of the global warming scam.

Summing up the predicament the avuncular Londoner lamented, "It seems to me the Coalition like the previous government goes along with this disgraceful dereliction of public duty and connivance in swindling the public. We urge them instead to put public interest and proven accountable science before ideology and failed non-science. Thank you"

Underwear Bomber Trial : Attorney Exposes U.S. False Flag Conspiracy
johnosullivan
Attorney Kurt Haskell's five minute statement at the trial of the infamous 'underwear bomber' exposes government complicity in false flag terror attacks on American citizens. Michael Leiter of the National Counter terrorism Center  finally admits the U.S. Government frequently enables terrorists to attack America.

Some readers may wonder how this relates to my journalistic activism against man-made global warming fraud. Well, read on and join the dots. Yesterday Haskell, in measured voice, delivered to a stunned courtroom a devastating five-minute litany of government complicity in false flag terrorist crime. The sober-suited Michigan attorney's damning evidence now sets the stage for him on a long road to sue the federal government in a sensational civil suit.

Haskell exposed complicity to block key evidence by a federal prosecutor who had conceded it might be "obtained by third parties, who could use it in a civil suit against the government”.
Read more on this appalling revelation here.

In effect, the government admits it could be implicated in a 'false flag' terrorist attack on its own citizens. Such evidence would prove that restrictions on our freedoms as a consequence of the 'war on terror' are, in fact, acts of a self-serving government undermining and manipulating the people it was elected to serve.

If anyone is still unaware of the concept, a 'false flag' attack is when
governments or organizations (usually connected to the former) stage highly sophisticated attacks on their own or foreign soil with the purpose of placing the blame on a desirable enemy foreign or domestic, one who has otherwise done no wrong. Essentially a setup, it provides the government entity with an excuse via fabricated evidence in complicity with media to fulfill its various agendas (i.e. war or law making). It's here that the 'official story' on terror and climate change are so sinister.

For those who doubt such heinous acts are so meticulously planned by our governments then I suggest they research the 1962 Pentagon Operation Northwoods document. In it we find a covert operation rejected by murdered U.S. President John F. Kennedy, that planned to commit similar such acts. In that operation U.S. secret servicemen were to deliberately blow up ships, expending the lives of their own soldiers and civilians in order to provide an excuse for Cuban invasion.

This latest litany is yet another example of how the twisted minds of those who rule us are hell-bent to control us by fear, whether that fear be generated through the threat of possible terrorist attacks or man's so-called climate-altering emissions of a benign trace gas, carbon dioxide.

In this instance, thanks to the outspoken bravery of Kurt Haskell we still have some chance to preserve our hard-won freedoms. For too long the public have been duped by malign forces within our unprincipled governments (be they clean-cut CIA operatives or avuncular climate scientists) and all to coerce the 'ninety-nine percent' to the will of an 'Elite.'

If only the mainstream media would fairly report on the apparent mendacity of our 'public servants' we would all be better equipped to coordinate a citizens' lawful rebellion against this obdurate tyranny.

But then who owns the mainstream media? The blogosphere is seemingly the last bastion of honest news reporting and in our courts brave men like Kurt Haskell and Canadian climatologist, Tim Ball shall defeat this evil.

Sierra Club Caught with it's Grubby Hand in the Gas Frakking Till
johnosullivan
New evidence shows the Sierra Club, darling of Big Green, taking multi-million dollar clandestine payments from "fossil fuel" gas frakking company, Chesapeake Energy. The slush money was used to file lawsuits against competitors from the coal industry.

The revelations are set to trigger a howl of protests from  environmentalists sensing betrayal at the hands of the self-serving Sierra Club where insiders cash in on kick backs from the natural gas frakking fraternity.


Irish Central writer, Ed Farnan in his article, 'Sierra Club was the secret hired gun of the gas industry' details his take on how this toxic "news bombshell exploded" and why the Sierra Club had surreptitiously taken $26 million from Chesapeake Energy between 2007 and 2010.

Farnan explains just how the Sierra Club's covert strategy actually works, "What better way of cornering the market and setting yourself up as the bully on the energy block than by knocking out or crippling your main competitor in the energy industry: Coal."

The story is yet another example of how double-dealing corporates behind Big Green actually operate - underhandedly advancing their preferred hydrocarbon fuel interests while publicly paying lip service to environmentalism.

Yet coal, as Ed points out, has been "the backbone for cheap energy that has fueled Americas amazing economic growth. Great improvements in technology, especially over the past 30 years have brought us to where you can look a modern coal fired power plant smoke stack and it is hard to tell whether it is burning or not."

Meanwhile Bryan Walsh, who first broke the story (Time: February 2, 2012), pinpoints how the scandal may cause yet untold harm to the Club’s relationship with corporations.

“The chapter groups and volunteers depend on the Club to have their back as they fight pollution from any industry, and we need to be unrestrained in our advocacy,” Michael Brune, the Sierra Club’s executive director since 2010, sums it up neatly for Time. “The first rule of advocacy is that you shouldn’t take money from industries and companies you’re trying to change.”

International Scientists & Economists Expose Biofuels Boondoggle
johnosullivan
The insanity of the biofuel boondoggle is devastatingly exposed in coordinated new action by international scientists and economists. Over 200 experts with Phd's in climate, energy and economics have put their names to a damning statement issued to European policymakers to abandon biofuels and avert a spiraling worldwide food crisis (H/T: Dr. Matthias Kleespies).

The backdrop to the latest plea for sanity is a 21st Century world of cooling temperatures and extraordinarily vast new oil and gas finds that confound last century  'peak oil' and man-made global warming fears. The experts' letter to the European Commission entitled, 'International Scientists and Economists Statement on Biofuels and Land Use' urges the EC to "recognize and account for indirect land use change impacts as a part of the lifecycle analyses of heat-trapping emissions from biofuels."


Planet Suffers Seven Percent Loss of Arable Land Due to Biofuels

Scientists are concerned that the unintended consequence of the mad rush to biofuels has inflicted a crippling loss of 7 percent of arable land to food production causing the price of basic foodstuffs to rocket in third world nations. They are issuing this heartfelt public plea for other concerned scientists to come forward and be counted by adding their names to their EC letter.

As land used for food or feed production is turned over to growing biofuel crops, agriculture has had to expand elsewhere. This has caused a totally avoidable new rush towards deforestation and destruction of other ecosystems, particularly in tropical regions in the developing world, according to the
statement published by the Union of Concerned Scientists  (UCS).

Last year, after an alert from Canadian geophysicist, Norm Kalmanovitch, my report that a whopping 6.5 percent of the world’s grain is now permanently stripped from the global food supply went viral ( see:
Global Warming Fraud Creates Third World Food Crisis').

Such a catastrophic cut in food supply can trigger a tipping point so that Third World hunger explodes into mass starvation. But what caused this?

The answer lies enshrined in the now discredited Kyoto Protocol, the global warming treaty that required world governments to reduce their reliance on hydrocarbon fuels and to cut emissions of carbon dioxide. However, 50 leading climate experts insist that our planet is in the midst of a stubborn cooling trend.

Global Cooling & Huge New Hydrocarbon Finds Invalidate Biofuels

So with global temperatures falling naturally this century there is no longer any compelling reason to impose starvation on the world's poor by creating an unnecessary 85 billion liters of ethanol fuel per annum to appease the dictates of the discredited UN Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change.

Add to this the fact that the world has suddenly discovered huge new reservoirs of extractable cheap oil and gas and any non-expert can readily join the dots to see that peak oil is as bogus a Chicken Little scare story as catastrophic man-made global warming.

This scandalous sham is still being propped up by the beneficiaries of these scare stories: the mega corporatists (that insidious 
'one percent' ) and ecological extremist hell bent on human depopulation.

In essence, basic food staples are being remorselessly removed from the global food supply for no other reason other than to serve the misguided selfish interests of a global elite. Canadian Kalmanovitch laments, " the wealthier portion of the world’s 6.6 billion people end up paying substantially more for their food but the poor simply starve, making this Kyoto Accord a true “crime against humanity” and those who have fabricated the false science on which this crime is based are therefore guilty of being complicit in this “crime against humanity."

The UCS is thus appealing to all scientists working in related specialisms who possess key insight on this matter to add their signatures to their letter to signify a powerful message to policymakers to bring to an end the insanity of biofuels and the devastating plunder of agricultural land.

Royal Society Exposed Again in Post Normal Corporate Fraud
johnosullivan
Yet again Andrew Montford performs sterling work detailing how Britain's Royal Society has sold out to political dogma about man-made global warming.

We all associate the world's pre-eminent science association with the great Sir Isaac Newton and the birth of the Scientific Method. It's fair to say the Royal Society is perhaps the 'canary in the coal' mine as to the real extent of corporate corruption within our national institutions.

On the same day Montford's blog 'Bishop Hill' reveals yet more dirt on the RS we see further announcements from top scientists that they've had enough of the stench of this sleaze. Der Spiegel (February 8, 2012) report that another top German Scientist admits he was "duped on Climate Change." At last the tide is turning against this most monumental sleaze.

"The climate catastrophe is not occurring," says Dr. Fritz Vahrenholt, "Dozens of solar researchers agree with me."

Like a growing phalanx of skeptics Dr. Vahrenholt now recognizes that multi-national corporate/government-funded junk sciences have prevailed for years employing a systematic 'divide and conquer' approach to stymie skeptical opposition. The flight of the R.S. from the traditional Scientific Method typifies the modern malaise. But no longer will the scientific community - part of that oppressed '99 percent' - remain gagged by a self-serving Global Elite.

The root of the problem was first prophetically identified by no less than U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower. In his final speech as president he warned, the future tyranny we must all confront is the new megolith of govt/corporate science; it now holds by far the biggest purse strings, sways the clueless media, grabs the kudos and seduces the journals and the academies - and thus the public minds.

We now see how right Eisenhower was. We are confronting a greater threat to humanity than that posed by the man-made global warming fraud. Underlying this heinous mass deception is a battle waged against the even more pervasive macrocosm; the struggle between the traditional scientific method (sometimes referred to the English Scientific Method) versus post-normal science.

Vahrenholt laments, "The IPCC is more of a political than a scientific body." But grassroots scientists i.e. those men and women not on the (carrot & stick) government/corporate juggernaut who bravely speak out, still have no cohesive voice or forum to rally any meaningful opposition. They need to unite and protest their cause just as the 'occupy' movement has confronted Wall Street's own version of this ugly behemoth and slay the dragon.

We man-made global warming skeptics have long recognized that there is a coordinated gatekeeping system that has its roots in controlling the mainstream science journals which, in turn, sways the mainstream media, which, in turn, sways public opinion on scientific issues. This is because, as a rule, the general public defers to authority on matters of science that are esoteric or beyond summary with a short and simple explanation. That's how politicians can skew the flow of research dollars to serve their corporate string-pullers.

Recently, thanks solely to the world wide web, we have made big strides towards educating more of the public that climatology, like economics and social science ( including psychology) are 'soft' sciences readily co-opted by the prevailing political agenda to control societies.

But the war between empiricism (the province of physical proofs) versus post-normalism (the domain of dogmatism) began long before the climate alarmism that took hold in the 1980's. The greater underlying conflict ensued from early in the 20th century when empiricism was given a back seat after modern theoretical physics caught on. Thereafter, post-normalism (where experimental proofs are routinely ignored and 'consensus' is king) became sexy and was soon adopted as the choice tool of government/corporate interests - plied routinely by the mainstream science journals.

Unless and until everyone around the world who still values the traditional Scientific Method wises up and unites under the banner of experimentally robust and transparent (REAL) science, then the anti-intellectual fascism of post-normalism will triumph.That is why an organization such as Principia Scientific International (PSI) is ABSOLUTELY a minimum requirement. http://principia-scientific.org/

We must be less inchoate and endeavor to bring under one umbrella scientists, engineers, mathematicians and related experts from around the globe who are prepared to put first and foremost the one abiding principle - strict adherence to the Scientific Method. The rigors of transparency and replicability by experiment are the very best instruments for truth and as such need to be adopted by institutions worldwide to be upheld by equally robust freedom of information laws (FOIA).

Absent such safeguards the 'high priests' of post-normal science will forever dictate to the flocks of grassroots scientists as to what 'holy' path they must follow (surely to dystopia). As an exciting paradigm shift is now underway in climate science it is the opportune moment for us to lobby all those friends of science and transparent, principled research to join together to support such a venture as PSI and begin the Renaissance of Truth.

Carpe diem,

Wind farms to wipe out California Condor
johnosullivan

Save the Eagles International (STEI) issues a biodiversity warning concerning the California Condor. Having spent tens of millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money to recuperate the species, politicians are now allowing its habitat to be invaded by hundreds of wind turbines, of the kind that are killing 2,000 vultures a year in Spain (1).

Kern County blinded by greed     

But if Spain has a population of 40,000 vultures, there are only 400 California condors, most of them likely to have close encounters with Kern County’s projected wind turbines at some point in their long lives - unless the birds are kept captive, as many presently are. The North-American Platform against Windpower (NA-PAW) and the World Council for Nature (WCFN) hereby join STEI in this warning.


As reported by Forbes Magazine last month, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service biologists have alerted Kern County officials to the fact that most of the wind projects on their drawing board, as well as at least one existing wind farm, are a threat to the Condor. “The service requests that the county of Kern exercise extreme caution in developing wind energy within the Tehachapi area because it falls within the range of the California condor,” has warned senior biologist Raymond Bransfield (2). But county officials are now poised to approve lethal wind turbines where condors fly. Humans are not treated differently: health and other adverse effects on local residents are also being overridden to meet Sacramento’s green energy targets. 

 

“Condors can travel 200 miles in a day”, said Jesse Grantham, the California condor coordinator for the Fish & Wildlife Service, “as the bird forages for food or takes a road trip on a whim to satisfy its curiosity. The condor has evolved to be attracted to novel objects and activity as it must constantly scour vast landscapes for its dinner” (2). Adds Mark Duchamp, president of STEI: “in view of this, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to predict they will be attracted to wind turbines, and die in their arms as do golden eagles. Dead birds under the turbines will be another fatal attraction.

 

Vultures and other raptors do perch on wind turbines, even when the blades are moving claims Duchamp: “we have pictures and a video documenting the fact. Condors will be likely to perch as well, and accidents will inevitably happen. Even if they did not attempt to perch, they are likely to get struck while looking down for food: a world-famous video shows a griffon vulture being hit by a blade while circling above a wind farm in Greece.” (3)

 

The Fish & Wildlife Service has opposed many projects in Kern County, but county officials deny that condors fly where FWS biologists say they do. Through denial of expert advice, they have given the green light to dangerous projects. Forbes Magazine gives the Catalina wind farm as an example: “We do not agree with your conclusion that California condors are ‘absent’ from the project area,” wrote Diane K. Noda, a field supervisor, in a letter to the county” (2). Yet the project was approved, and others just as nefarious, not to speak of a mega power line across condor habitat, laments Save the Eagles International. Last October the Sierra Club and two other environmental groups sued Kern County over its approval of a 300-megawatt NextEra Energy Resources wind farm that state and federal officials warn poses a high risk to condors (2).

 

Duchamp warns that golden eagles too are at risk in Kern County, as many wind turbines will be placed in their breeding ranges and dispersion areas, the latter being hunting grounds shared by young eagles, like Altamont Pass in Northern California. “The cumulative effect on California’s golden eagle population will be disastrous”, he says. 

 

When asked how come no condor deaths have ever been reported at the existing Tehachapi wind farm, Mark is quick to reply: “the fact that none were reported does not mean that none have been killed. It is no secret that, in the wind business, some employees are making embarrassing evidence disappear. Even the renowned Spanish Ornithological Society recognized the fact.” (4)

Al Gore's Nobel Peace Prize Jury Placed Under Investigation
johnosullivan
Nobel Prizes given to discredited UN global warming spin machine and former U.S. Vice President, Al Gore have triggered an investigation by a Swedish government department. The 'eco-warriors' are accused of promoting climate alarm with lies and junk science.

The investigation is being conducted by the Stockholm County Administrative Board, which supervises foundations in Sweden's capital. If investigators affirm that the prize founder
Alfred Nobel's will is not being honored, it has the authority to suspend award decisions.

Among the most dubious awards cited for igniting such serious scrutiny was the Nobel Committee's 2007 Peace Prize to Al Gore for his now discredited film, 'An Inconvenient Truth.' After a much-publicized British high court hearing a leading London judge ruled that the film contained
nine lies and 35 misleading statements.

Judge Michael Burton told the court  that the film's  errors had arisen "in the context of alarmism and exaggeration" in order to support Mr Gore's thesis on global warming. Judge Burton said the film was a propaganda piece that should not be shown in England's schools without a 'health warning' of it's inherent bias. Gore went on record to decry the judgement refusing to correct or apologize for his misleading 'mistakes.'

Despite the devastating London legal ruling the Nobel Committee steadfastly declined to consider stripping Gore of his prize.

According to The New York Times  the instigator of the fresh Swedish complaint is peace researcher and lawyer, Fredrik Heffermehl. He argues that the Nobel committee has violated the terms of Alfred Nobel’s will, which established the prize. Heffermehl, also author of the book The Nobel Peace Prize: What Nobel Really Wanted  claims the awards to Gore, the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change as well as the 2009 prize to U.S. President, Barack Obama, were a political misuse of the Nobel committee contrary to the peace ideas that Alfred Nobel intended to support.


Environment Professor Slams Global Warming Cult with New Evidence
johnosullivan
Top South African biosystems professor today adds his dissenting voice to growing number of international experts demanding an end to the religion of man-made global warming.

Alexander publishes (February 3, 2012) an in-depth analysis exposing UN climate science as "an empty shell" endorsed by certain national governments bent on raising unnecessary and swinging climate taxes.

Alexander is Professor Emeritus, Dept. of Civil and Biosystems Engineering, University of Pretoria, South Africa
and renowned internationally for his environmental science. Alexander joins the growing ranks of highly credentialed scientists whose incisive research and publications have been frustrated by obstructionist alarmist and bureaucratic forces - a veritable wall of self-serving censorship from mainstream science journals loyal to the 'cause' of ramping up public alarm on this hot issue. Only through the grassroots medium of the world wide web have such principled scientists been able to get the truth out.


"At last the climate change bubble is about to burst," says the South African whose new publications summarize the facts that, "there is no evidence to support the claims that climate change will increase floods and droughts."

Indeed, this leading environmental scientist affirms, "There is also no evidence of environmental damage. These are the core issues in climate change science."

Alexander, known for his peerless studies on hydrology, has put together the key facts to prove to the public that man-made global warming is nothing other than "an unverified hypothesis.
"

The Pretorian professor cites the compelling new findings on a stronger and more defined solar linkage to climate change where the evidence is solid. "The reason why the signal is clearer in southern Africa than in the high northern latitudes is that a greater proportion of the total received energy comes directly from the sun and the intervening cloud cover is very much less in our dry climate" he says.

Thanks to concerted efforts by such climate realists to get the full facts about climate into the public domain, a seemingly irreversible trend of steadfast and skeptical public opinion is forming.

Fight Corporate Crime and Boycott the 2012 Olympics
johnosullivan
A new idea is doing the rounds about how to fight corporate crime, the banksters and their political lackies. It says hit them hard and loud where it hurts: boycott the London 2012 Olympics.

Now a report from India (February 1, 2012) shows at least one group of athletes share that view. Those of you old enough to remember will recall the monumental pain inflicted on the old Soviet Union by the boycott of the Moscow Olympics in 1980. The 99 percent of us aggrieved by the conduct of the self-serving Establishment may now want to ponder such a boycott as an opportune template for action.

I'm certainly not advocating the forced withdrawal by athletes - that's unlikely to occur anyway.  Governments of the richer nations aren't going to give up their slice of the action so easily. Indeed, most folks would probably agree that the athletes deserve their chance of hard-earned sporting glory and shouldn't become 'collateral damage' caught in the crossfire.

No, what's being suggested here is a strictly financial embargo as consumers - don't patronize the brands, don't buy the merchandise, don't watch the TV broadcasts. If you attend the games make your voice heard and protest, shout loud, raise banners and make the corporatists cringe.

The 2012 Games has 55 sponsors, including Coca-Cola, McDonald’s, Visa, BP, BA and other big hitters. They've thrown in just shy of £700 million, and they are a key source of funding for the £9.3bn cost of putting on the Games. They expect a lot back for their investment.
A consumer boycott of the games would hit hardest those multi-nationals investing many millions in advertising and would also cause pain in the heart of the world's financial capital: the City of London.

PR Gurus Say London Olympics is the  Prime Time TV Promo

‘Sponsorship now is about how you get your brand ethos, how you connect with the fan worship and how you’re smart and how you own the story that surrounds the sport,’  says
PR guru Mark Borkowski.
The 'story' from the London Games should be that taxpayers are saying 'no' to paying for trillion-dollar bank bailouts. We say 'no' to corporate largesse and we say no bank is 'too big' to fail. Let them all fail. End the theft from taxpayers and the asset stripping of debtor nations, otherwise we will retaliate.

Let's not be the slaves to the global elite lording it in London. Let's not allow them to use the occasion to exploit us further during what is fast becoming the worst global economic recession - bigger that the Great Depression of the '30's (far more painful and devastating once the Euro fiat currency collapses).

Why Boycotting the Olympics Makes Sense

History tells us that great international causes need great rallying points in place and time. The whole world was stunned by the 1968 Olympics Black Power salutes given by the African American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the Olympic Stadium in Mexico City. The event was one of the most overtly political statements
in the history of the modern Olympic Games
.

Time magazine followed up by showing the five-ring Olympic logo with the words, "Angrier, Nastier, Uglier", instead of "Faster, Higher, Stronger."

And the free world rejoiced at the political triumph achieved at an even earlier Olympics in 1936. It has long been regarded as the greatest sporting snub in history - when Adolf Hitler stormed out of the Olympic Stadium in Berlin because Germany had been humiliated by a black man: American sprinter, Jesse Owens, winning four gold medals.

No to Bank Bailouts, False Flag Attacks and Mainstream Media Cronism

This year the 'ninety-nine percent,' sick of the spoon fed propaganda spouted by the
mainstream, will have few better opportunities to seize a platform for a peaceful demonstration than London and hurt those 55 leading corporate brands.


‘For those sort of brands it’s a case of keeping you up there,’ says Borkowski. ‘How would it look now if McDonald’s weren’t part of some of those big events?' Yes, Mark and how will it look for them and their corporate bedfellows when we show them up for the globalist exploiters their truly are?

Apathy, willful ignorance and abdication of responsibility are our enemies. Don't sit back while the ' Global Elite' and their lackies in the mainstream media distract us with faux news of false flag attacks, dumbed down entertainment and showbiz trivia. Let's use the Internet (while 'they' still allow us) to educate ourselves, coordinate our efforts and make a difference.

Take your cue from history and see that it happens in London.
