C&R councillors cool on warming – A commitment to combat climate change has gone the same way as social housing and lost favour with the new Citizens & Ratepayers council.
City Vision leader Richard Northey says C&R leader David Hay has his head in the sand on… [Auckland News]
Excellent, good stuff C&R. Put this socialist clap-trap to bed once and for all.
Global Warming, "Climate Change" and all the other bullshit names that the Chicken Little's come up with to make us quake in fear is nothing more than the biggest lie.
Al Gore, is nothing but proven liar, he won't even debate Viscount Monckton. The science is increasingly being proven to be anything other than what the Warmists claim is settled.
Ditch the policy. Good boys.
Duncan Bayne at SOLO writes a letter to “Walk the Walk”
I found your site through the Save The Happy Valley website, and I’m keen to participate in your walk, to stand up against capitalism and the damage it’s doing to our fragile ecosystem. I’ve never been to a walk like this, but I have been following the progress of our brothers and sisters in the Save The Happy Valley team. In light of this, I’ve a few questions as a Walk the Walk newbie.
First, what weapons should I bring? According to the Police Affidavit I’ve read, sniper rifles are the preferred weapon amongst Wellington peace activists, but I’m not really in touch with the latest fashions.
Secondly, how much ammunition will I need? Granted this is a peaceful walk, but there’s always the possibility of close-range contacts with special forces troopers, just like Tame Iti was training people for a few months ago. I was thinking several hundred rifle rounds and possibly a few grenades would cover it.
Lastly, I’m a bit concerned that all of this shooting might be producing greenhouse gases. Does anyone in your group know of a good source of organic, holistic, low-emission propellant? If not, can you suggest a company from which I can purchase carbon credits to offset the cost of normal ammunition?
Thanks for your time, & I look forwards to joining your peaceful march.
I wonder if he has had the courtesy of a reply yet?

The best slamming of AGW so far. From a scientist no less.
[quote]The first of four parts where Professor Bob Carter uses the scientific method on the popular theory with global warming being linked to CO2 levels. He examnines the hypothesis and it fails the test. Inconvenient Truth author Al Gore would find his presentation contradicted by this presentation? Will Kyoto`s greenhouse reduction goals be in vain?[/quote]
Right then, would someone tell me if they still believe in Global Warming? How about CO2 is evil?
Al Gore, proven liar, has again been proven to be a liar.
[quote]Today, in the Proceedings of the Royal Society A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences, a study of typhoons is published by Prof Johnny Chan, City University of Hong Kong.
A major conclusion of his study is that global warming apparently is not related to the frequency of intense typhoons.
Instead, such occurrences have a strong decadal variation caused by similar variations in the oceanographic and atmospheric conditions that govern the formation, intensification and movement of tropical cyclones.
Prof Chan said that there are key differences between the Pacific and the Atlantic. In the latter, sea-surface temperature is generally close to a threshold of 27 degrees, beyond which more tropical cyclones are more likely to form, he said.
Although some have linked hurricanes to climate change, others believe the variations follow a natural cycle, he said: “More analyses are necessary before one can say one way or the other.”
For the western North Pacific, the sea surface temperature is always above the threshold. “Therefore, a slight increase due to global warming would not have a great influence”.[/quote]
Whoopsy, looks like the science isn’t settled, looks like the debate isn’t over.

20/20's John Stossel explains the other side of global warming issue. The science is NOT in, the debate is NOT over.
Check out the brain-washed kids in the video, if you have your own children i bet they get the same crap from school.
As Ruapehu erupts we see the following being spewed into the atmosphere;
- H20 – a greenhouse gas, it is convenient to ignore
- C02 – a greenhouse gas
- S02 – causes acid rain
- CO – poisonous
- H2S – rotten egg smell, acid rain
- HCl – acid rain, ozone depleter
- HF – acid rain – ozone depleter
So the poor Kiwi taxpayer gets slammed while Mother Earth which what we are supposed to be saving tells us to shove it by spewing more toxic gases into the air in a shorter time than any industry might do.
I wonder though, do the owners of the land have to pay the carbon liabilities for such and outburst?

Fran O'Sullivan looks at the flawed carbon trading system that we are about to embark upon in our futile bid to halt Earth's natural cyclic climate system.
First up she gets a slam in about the whole stupid presumption behind such flawed logic.
[quote]Let's put to rest here (quickly) the notion that this column will attack the basic science of global warming as a crock.
There's nothing to be gained from reopening that debate.[/quote]
In other words, she knows it is a crock, any thinking and well read person knows it is a crock but we can't say such things because as one civil servant told me the other day we are "heretics". Gee isn't funny that people who decry religion are the ones using religious phrases to describe opponents of the new religion.
Anyway onto the rest of her article which examines the failings and potential pitfalls of the silly system that we have all adopted in order to sacrifice at the altar of the new religion.
[quote]The Government rejected taxes as a blunt instrument (in truth this was the result of a concerted business-led lobbying campaign) then goes on to admit that in practice no one knows exactly how a country's emissions will respond to the changes in the price of emissions which occur through trading regimes.
Buried in the back of the 149-page document is this gem: If there were to be an international shift away from emission trading regimes and the NZ scheme were to become anomalous, the administrative systems being put in place could be relatively easily transformed to a tax-based system at a later date.[/quote]
Right, so we all opposed a carbon tax but we are going to get one anyway because the government has already seen that this system will fail and the trading can easily be turned into a tax. Nice one.
Now what about fraud.
[quote]Investigations in the UK by the Financial Times and the Guardian have uncovered widespread fraud in such areas.
The FT found companies rushing to go green had spent millions on carbon credit policies that yielded few environmental benefits.
- Widespread instances of people and organisations buying worthless credits that did not yield any reductions in carbon emissions.
- Industrial companies profiting from doing little, or gaining carbon credits on the basis of efficiency gains from which they had already benefited substantially.
- Brokers providing services of questionable value.
- A shortage of verification.
- Companies being charged over the odds for the private purchase of EU carbon permits that had plummeted in value because they did not result in emissions cuts.
The Guardian found serious irregularities at the heart of the Kyoto process itself which the world relies on to control global warming.
The Clean Development Mechanism that is supposed to offset greenhouse gases emitted in the developed world by selling carbon credits from elsewhere has been contaminated by gross incompetence, rule-breaking and possible fraud by developing countries' companies.
The Guardian investigation relied on United Nations documents and feedback from projects on the ground. For instance, one-third of the projects registered in India were commercial ventures that did not produce any additional cut in greenhouse gases.[/quote]
Fantastic, evidence from one conservative business oriented paper and one liberal woolly thinking paper show that there is no benefit to the environment at all, rather the benefit goes into the pockets of savvy and crooked traders.
Nick Smith needs to pull his head out of his arse and start educating himself before imploring the caucus to follow this sort of b.s.

If I was the Labour Party strategists I would be more than a little peeved with a self-centred Chinese dickhead right now.
You are all set release your premier policy, the one that is supposed to be the catalyst that will break the strangle-hold the Opposition has on the polls and this upstart kills his wife and dumps his cute kid at a train station in Melbourne right at the wrong time.
The front page of every daily but especially the only daily in Auckland your power base has had nothing but coverage of the "Pumpkin" Case for more than a week and more set to come.
Your circuit breaker policy gets abour 5 minutes of mention and even then most people focus on the increased costs that you have just landed in their laps. What the hell are you going to talk about for the next two weeks of the parliamentary recess.
All I have to sy on that is bwahahahahahahahahahaha!!!
Gas tax will not to apply to farmers, says Govt – Farmers will avoid having to pay for their greenhouse gas emissions for several years yet under the Government's flagship climate change policies, set to be unveiled today.
It is understood that dairy farmers, who contribute a… [NZ Politics]
The Governments grand strategy of making every one pay to feel good about saving the planet from a non-existant problem gets released today, and today we find out that Labour quakes in its boots when it thinks of angry farmers.
Thus, the angry farmers don't get to pay while the rest of New Zealand subsidises their "problem".
Heh, the irony is delicious. Clark and Cullen fought Muldoon and his government's penchant to subsidise farmers and now they do exactly the same thing.
