CSIRO climate jobs to go – heads explode all round…

Models can't predict anything

Models can’t predict anything

The national science agency, CSIRO, has announced it will restructure its climate change teams to concentrate on dealing with it rather than trying to understand it.

The national science agency has been accused of walking away from climate science after it announced it would refocus from trying to understand it to practical measures to deal with it.

CSIRO chief executive Larry Marshall said yesterday climate change had been well modelled and it was time to start doing something about it.

Dr Marshall, a Sydney-born physicist and Silicon Valley entrepreneur, has ordered a restructure that will put 350 jobs at risk, particularly in environmental research, as the agency pursues “moonshots” capable of delivering practical solutions.

Paris: Bishop smirks as climate action back on the table

Celebrates a pointless waste of money

UPDATE: In a depressing double-whammy, Turnbull has also lifted TA’s sensible ban on pointless and ugly bird-choppers (wind farms). Oh well, they can be a lasting monument to Chairman Mal’s stupidity.

One of the main reasons Tony Abbott was elected in 2013 was his rational stance on climate alarmism.

He stood apart from Rudd, Gillard and Turnbull, all of whom advocated taking action on global warming climate change – and won the 2013 election as a result.

Abbott rightly believed that spending trillions of dollars to make no difference to the climate is a pointless solution to a non-problem. There has been virtually no warming for almost two decades, despite rising CO2 levels, and the science, in particular on the sensitivity of the climate to CO2, is far from settled.

How it all changes. [Read more…]

Malcolm’s ultimate fantasy: preaching to a UN climate gab-fest

Mal's wet dream

Mal’s wet dream

To all those in the Coalition that thought deposing Tony Abbott was a good move, I hope you are enjoying this particular spectacle, because personally, I am trying not to hurl.

Just for the record, Tony wouldn’t be seen dead preaching at a UN climate conference, but our new dear leader, on the other hand, is positively in his element. [Read more…]

Cardinal Pell, please put the Pope straight on climate

Misguided

The Pope’s ill-informed blunder into the politics of global warming, er, sorry, climate change, has been bizarre, not least because of the choice of language. [Read more…]

Climate scare: a means to ‘intentionally transform economic development model’

Figueres: transform the economy

Figueres: transform the economy

Those of us who have been following the climate alarmism of the recent past have known this for some time.

The ‘urgent’ need to scale back our economies to ‘save the planet’ has little to do with environmental concerns, and is more about removing the proven capitalist model of economic development and replacing it with socialist wealth redistribution.

But it’s always good to have one of the senior apparatchiks confirm it unambiguously, as Christiana Figueres, Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC),  has done. [Read more…]
