Could this possibly get any better? UN declares wind farms breach human rights

It really couldn’t get any better than this…the UN declaring that wind farms are a breach of human rights.

I can’t wait for Russel Norman to mount a tirade against the government for deploying wind farms when they so comprehensively breach human rights…that was his argument against the GCSB Bill, so if he is consistent he will surely now campaign against wind power.

Plans for future wind farms in Britain could be in jeopardy after a United Nations legal tribunal ruled that the UK Government acted illegally by denying the public decision-making powers over their approval and the ‚Äúnecessary information‚ÄĚ over their benefits or adverse effects.

The new ruling, agreed by a United Nations committee in Geneva, calls into question the legal validity of any further planning consent for all future wind-farm developments based on current policy, both onshore and offshore.

The United Nations Economic Commission Europe has declared that the UK flouted Article 7 of the Aarhus Convention, which requires full and effective public participation on all environmental issues and demands that citizens are given the right to participate in the process.¬† Read more »

The IPCC are a bunch of muppets I wonder if Peter Gluckman is too

The IPCC has constantly got things wrong and the 5th IPCC report is due out soon. Warmists and their enablers…people who should know better like the PM’s chief science advisor actually rely on the fairytales put together by the IPCC. Others like David Farrar go along with the mantra.

Leaks have started flowing with the latest report as Quadrant Online shows and some errors have been there uncorrected since the first IPCC report

Leaked reports of the Fifth IPCC Report, due next month, say the IPCC experts are now 95% sure that human activities and emissions are the main cause of global warming since the 1950s.

The same IPCC experts remain 100% sure that the Dakotas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas are homes to tropical forests, and that they have been since 1995.

But given a doubling of global CO2, they expect the central US tropical forest belt to shift eastwards to Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and Illinois, even stretching east to Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania.

Looking at my own part of the world, I see that the IPCC has Papua-New Guinea, Indonesia and the Philippines currently covered in savannas, dry forests and woodlands. But with global CO2 doubling, the prairies of south-east Asia will surge northwards to Malaysia, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, even southern China.¬† Read more »

Connecting the dots on Shearer’s secret overseas bank account

via Stuff

via Stuff

So here’s this man, David Shearer. ¬†He’s got no track record with Labour, but they want him.

Why?

He’s done an awesome job for the UN, got an MBE from the UK (not New Zealand), and is obviously capable at some level. ¬†But why does the New Zealand Labour Party want this particular man?

Before promoting anyone internally?

Before any hard grafting unionists?

Before any social barrier busting gays?

Before any career politicians that have stuffed envelopes and walked up more garden paths to ask for a vote than Shearer has had hot dinners?

What is so special about him?

Charlie Shovel is off to the world’s biggest piss up

gladys-pigThe United Nations is a pretty fun place. The headquarters hosts all kinds of cultural events. Everyone’s open-minded about the dress code. Delegates can even show up hammered to budget negotiations. Or at least they used to be able to.

At a General Assembly budget committee meeting on Monday, the United States ambassador for management and reform at the UN stood up to scold his colleagues for always showing up drunk to negotiations.

“There has always been a good and responsible tradition of a bit of alcohol improving a negotiation, but we’re not talking about a delegate having a nip at the bar,” said Joseph “The Fun Police” Torsella. “We make the modest proposal that the negotiating rooms should in future be an inebriation-free zone.”

Uh oh. ¬†Maybe Charlie turned up to the party too late? ¬† Read more »

Helen Clark does her Reddit AMA

defge3

As mentioned a few days ago, Helen Clark was scheduled for a Reddit AMA at 5 am today. ¬†It’s all done and dusted, and can be found here.

Every AMA has an introduction explaining what the AMA is roughly about, and some proof that it really is the person you’re talking to:

Dear Redditors,

In two days I will attend the conference “Making the MDGs Work: From Advocacy through Implementation to Acceleration and beyond” in Bogot√°, Colombia (event page:¬†http://ow.ly/i1xRF¬†). There, I will speak on the development agenda post-2015 and on what comes after the Millennium Development Goals which will expire in two years.

I’m looking forward to your questions on this topic and on anything else you may want to know! I will begin answering them at 11AM EST for approximately an hour.

EDIT 12:13PM¬†Thanks everyone – must fly. Tonnes of questions! Very stimulating. Let’s do it again some time. Thanks for your interest in development (and New Zealand!). Spread the word about the MDGs and the importance of speeding up progress over the next 1,000 days! Follow our big MDG conference in Bogota – on Twitter #MDGs2013 and¬†http://www.undp.org/live! Over and out!

Proof it’s me:¬†http://ow.ly/i1uCf¬†More:¬†http://ow.ly/hYgRI

“Making the MDGs Work: From Advocacy through Implementation to Acceleration and beyond”.

Chauvel quits making way for Carol Beaumont’s return

Cameron Slater at the Truth reports

Charles Chauvel has quit parliament in a fit of pique, taking a lifeline no doubt supplied by Helen Clark, though he denies this publicly.

It is no secret that Charles Chauvel was a fan of David Cunliffe and this will be a large factor in his bolting from Labour.

What is of more interest however is that Chauvel sees an exit to the UN as more preferable than sticking around and hoping that a David Shearer led Labour party may perform an electoral miracle and manage to govern after next year’s election.

Chauvel has clearly weighed up Labour’s chance and also his own and realised both are slim at best.

Just as Labour is starting to build a little bit of momentum against the Government, they end up shooting themselves in the foot with this side show.

 

Labour’s Housing Lottery Secret

As Labour rolled out their new Housing Policy it has become impossible ¬†for people to accept that the numbers are realistic. ¬†But it makes you think: Surely Labour wouldn’t be so stupid as to come out with a policy where the numbers don’t add up?

So the real answer is: ¬†They haven’t told us everything. ¬† Yet.

At one point the only solution seemed to be Container Housing, but as Labour had gone to the wire on campaigning against containers being used for prison cells, the Container Housing chalice would be poisoned from the get-go.

So there had to be another answer.

Here is Labour’s Housing Lottery Secret that makes ALL the number stack up:

Pallet housing. ¬†PROTOTYPE BUILT FOR PRINCE CHARLES’ ROYAL GARDENS”¬†IN CONJUNCTION WITH IBM, THE FINANCIAL TIMES, AND THE EARTH AWARDS

Youtube Video (embedding disallowed, so here’s the link)

Pallet House

The inspiration for the Pallet House Project came from the fact that 84% of the world‚Äôs refugees could be housed with a year‚Äôs supply of recycled American pallets. Pallets are specifically designed for transport and delivery ‚Äď so cost is negligible when carrying shipments of food, medicine and other types of aid to refugees. A 250 square foot ‚ÄėPallet House‚Äô requires 100 recycled pallets nailed and lifted into place by 4-5 people using hand tools in under a week. ¬† — The Earth Awards

And there you have it. ¬†This has to be Labour’s Housing Secret. ¬†It solves¬†all¬†their problems: ¬†It’s cheap, it has a small foot print, uses recycled materials, and can be put up by 4 or 5 people in a week.

Breaking The Taboo (Trailer)

Featuring prominent statesmen including Presidents Clinton and Carter, the film follows The Global Commission on Drug Policy on a mission to break the political taboo and expose the biggest failure of global policy in the last 50 years.
