Climate Change Scepticism
America and UK Lead the World in Climate Scepticism

The two major English speaking powers, USA and UK lead the world in climate change scepticism, according to a recent survey which found that one in three Americans and one in four British people do not think climate change is a major threat.
The figures come from a YouGov survey ahead of a major climate change
stitch up conference due to take place in Paris towards the end of the year. World leaders will meet at the COP21 meeting to negotiate a new agreement on what to do about carbon emissions and global warming, despite no rise in temperatures being recorded for nearly two decades and the numeroust instances of the alleged rise in global temperature having been shown to be the result of 'scientists' back-adjusting real world data to agree with the output from mathematical models of the climate on which their predictions of doom are based.
The BBC, formerly one of the most trusted news organisations in the world, but now just part of the government propaganda machine, has also been playing it’s part in softening up opposition to the measures likely to be proposed at COP21. Earlier this month, Guido Fawkes reported that the BBC’s environment correspondent Helen Briggs "treated readers to an account of how the signing of the Montreal Protocol saved the world by stopping the Ozone hole from expanding."
By amazing coincidence, one of the scientists interviewed in the documentary believes there are parallels to be drawn between Montreal and Paris, saying: "The [Montreal] protocol provides a lesson for the future and we must hope that the coming climate change talks show the same foresight and result in a treaty that will benefit the whole planet"
But the public aren’t buying it. Earlier this month, YouGov asked 1667 British people "How serious a problem, if at all, do you consider climate change (or global warming) to be?” 20 percent said they thought it was not very serious, and a further six percent said that it was not serious at all."
Across the pond they’re even more sceptical: of the 1000 Americans asked, 16 percent said it was not very serious, and another 16 percent said it was not serious at all. The problem is governments and scientists have lied so much over recent years, it is difficult for well informed people to believe anything they tell us.
At the other end of the scale, 44 percent of Americans wanted their country to play a leading role, while 17 percent wanted their government to do nothing. In the UK, those figures were 41 percent and seven percent respectively. 21 percent of Americans also thought that their government was already doing too much to tackle climate change, as did 14 percent of Brits.
Perhaps the discrepancy is down to the sure and certain knowledge that ‘doing something’ invariably means countries such as the US and UK giving away vast sums of taxpayers’ hard earned to countries such as China, Indonesia, India and Malaysia. By comparison to the figures for Europe, just four percent of Chinese and two percent of Malaysians agree.
At the last major climate summit to take place, at Copenhagen in 2009, rich countries promised to hand over at least $100 billion (£65 billion) a year to developing countries by 2020. So far much of the money has not been forthcoming, but Laurent Fabius, the French foreign minister, who will preside over the Paris talks, has now said that it must be handed over as a way of securing trust between the nations. Ironic that, because France is bankrupt and not far from needing an IMF bail out.
Speaking over the weekend, Fabius said: "The question of financing is, in fact, decisive for reaching an agreement in Paris.
"The promise of Copenhagen must be kept, absolutely – it is the basis of trust, and for many countries it is the condition of reaching agreement. Therefore, it is a priority for France as host nation."
On a more realistic note, last September China delivered a document to the UN stipulating that it will not cut any emissions unless the West pays the costs. The document reiterated that China’s action on climate change was "dependent on the adequate finance and technology support provided by developed country parties" to any new climate accord, and that the payments must come from "new, additional, adequate, predictable and sustained public funds."
In other words, China and their allies in the BRICS nations see climate change as a weapon in the Currency War they are waging for the purpose of deposing USA as the dominant global economic power.
Having said all that of course, we can quite easily refer back to previous statements on climate change to see there is a hidden agenda here. IPCC official, Ottmar Edenhofer, speaking in November 2010: "But one must say clearly that we redistribute, de facto, the world's wealth by climate policy. … one has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. Instead, climate change policy is about how we redistribute, de facto, the world’s wealth…"
"This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy,anymore." Here is the proof of that statement in the original German.
How long have us sceptics been telling you it's all a scam?

Global Temperature Record Is A Smoking Gun Of Collusion And Fraud In Climate Science
Are the latest leaked documents from the Global Warming conspiracy published by Wikileaks the smoking gun the carbon dioxide driven climate change sceptics have been waiting for? The ceretainly demonstrate beyond not just reasonable doubt but any doubt at all that the research grant phising climate scientists deliberately changed data so the algorithms would give the answer they wanted.
Paris Climate conference: Scientists Debunk Global Warming Scaremongering
As national leaders and self interested science whore collaborated to impose of the world a United Nations “climate regime” based on the vile and authoritarian Agenda 21 agreement, at the COP21 global-warming summit, a group of internationally respected scientists and environmentalists from various fields presented research at a separate conference in Paris that ridiculed the climate change hysteria.
Volkswagen Emissions Scandal - Is It The Tip Of The Iceberg?
The real problem here is that, driven by the hysterical warnings of self interested pseudo-scientists, politicians have set unachievable targets for reducing emissions while demanding that national economies keep growing.
Global Warming Is Not Causing Any Polar Ice Cap Meltdown Says NASA
Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979. Since the end of 2012, moreover, total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average. The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.
Punish Climate Change Liars" Demands Climate Change Liar
Over the years my scepticism about global warming and attempts to initiate intellgent discussion of the dodgy science based on mathematical models that forms the basis of the Warmageddonist case, versus much less alarming projections based on data from real world observations haveearned me accusations of being a child murderer. Not only that, some of the lefties who support climate fascism have demanded the death penalty for people who disagree with them. And yet they think it unfair to punish certain child rapists and murderers. Hypocrites.
Another Kick In The Bollocks For Warmageddonists And CAGWARTS
I've had many arguments with the Warmageddonists, the people who have been saying that the 'scientific consensus' had agreed if we did not shut down all coal, oil and gas related activites (that is, just about all human activities except unprotected sex and sleeping) the earth was going to turn into a giant furnace and we would all burn. Those of us audacious enough to ask when this was going to happen felt the horizon shifting.
Climate Experts Smeared by Media and Greenpeace for Debunking Global Warming
Anyone who understood basic arithmetic (like how to work out an average) and took the trouble to examine the 'science' that backed the climate change scare understood the whole thing was a fraud. And plenty of honest scientists were not afraid to say so. But those who went public faced hate attacks and having their careers trashed. Now however, as evidence exposes the lies of the global warming lobby, they are starting to come forward.
U.N. Official Reveals Real Reason Behind Warming Scare
We said it was a scam, now a United Nations official has admitted the whole climate change scare was really about destroying capitalism. But what doo the elites plan to replace it with, A Corporaite Global Dictator ship in which the world is run by unelected bureaucrats selected from withing a small, elite class? Actually we predicted that as well.
We said 2014 was the warmest year on record… but we’re only 38% sure we were right - NASA
Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all. Does that mean 97% of climate experts are 62% sure they are wrong? The thing with half-truths is that they generate a glorious fog, but it has no substance. Ask of the spin-cloud a couple of sensible questions and the narrative collapses.
Earth’s CO2 Levels Pass Global Warming ‘Milestone', Nothing Happens - Daily Caller.
After two decades of panic stricken scientists and screeching lefties wailing about the catatrophe that would ensue once the concentration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere passed 400 parts per million, that figure was reached in December 2014.
Insane Science Pushing The Earth Towards Ecocide. At the Daily Stirrer we have suspected it for a log time, science is insane, a game for the ethically challenged and sociopathic to compete to be first to develop a new plague, or a death ray, or to trash the enviromnent in pursuit of political power or corporate profits for their paymasters. There's even a name for what they are doing now, Ecocide.Latest Posts
