Lie Detector Tests For CO2 Denialists

Perhaps the numerous so called leaders in positions of authority that are also climate change sceptics or denialists should be forced to undergo lie detector tests to prove that they really do think that Climate change is not being caused by human emmissions of Carbon into the atmosphere.

If you are really a denialist then surely you won’t mind proving that you completely believe the words that emit from your mouths and are not simply well paid spokesperson’s for the Fossil Fuel industry. That your grasp of basic physics is such that you genuinely do not understand or comprehend the scientific facts as they are presented and agreed on by the vast majority of climate scientists. That you do not trust the UN, NASA, the Presidents of the USA, China, Germany to make decisions based on the science and physics they have been exposed to over years of intense scrutiny and debate.

Climate Change vs Carbon Pollution

NASA has released a detailed visualisation of climate data gathered from across the globe which graphically details the extent of human generated Carbon emissions over a single year.

The Case For Human Intervention in Climate Modulation

Everyone knows the “chem trail” conspiracy. What most people don’t know are the physics behind them. It’s no surprise that the US government has been studying the options for enabling “business as usual” consumption of fossil fuels for as long as possible. So in order to allow the world to keep pumping out carbon into the atmosphere various tricks have been devised to limit the amount of sunlight entering the atmosphere. Rather than encouraging a large decrease in consumption they would prefer to lower the amount of sunlight. Further polluting the atmosphere in the process. The long term negative effects of this process have yet to be determined.

The missing element from the report linked above is the analysis of the negative or unintended effects of the various proposals. The law of conservation of energy is a good place to start. Suppress climate fluctuations in one place and other places would surely get larger ones. Also, according to the well developed area of “perturbation theory”, once fluctuations in one place get large enough they will grow and overwhelm the whole system.

Kim Dotcom is Larry Flint of a New Generation

Whether the Government in NZ changes or not with the next election Kim Dotcom won’t receive any favours. But even with the odds stacked against him he has shown he is more than capable of fighting the system under his own steam.

Larry Flint was vilified too for his personal tastes and business model of making money out of smut but he fought the US government on Freedom of Speech and won. Dotcom is on track to be the Larry Flint of this generation. He is fighting for internet freedom and against the global mass surveillance apparatus.

They don’t like him. Not because he was successful, not because he was exploiting the vagaries of copyright law and the internet. Google, Twitter and Facebook have the same business model too. They don’t like him because he was circumventing the spy apparatus and not implementing the full firehose feed to the NSA. They also didn’t like the amount of traffic that was being consumed by the users of his network. He wasn’t helping them to make mass surveillance and global spying easier. So they had to take him down.

The global spy machine is a monster that has outgrown it’s masters. As Dotcom has now shown it can even be used to retrieve evidence that can take down the very people it is supposed to serve. The NZ Government is scared of the possibility or betrayal by their own actions but that is nothing compared to the fear that the real puppet masters have of being subject to the spy apparatus for their criminal wheelings and dealings.

The New Zealand election is litmus test of the way intelligent society is focusing their attention on the system that has been created by the Military Industrial Complex. Scotland is a big deal for Europe but NZ is a big deal for the whole world. The canary in the coalmine of the western worlds tolerance for global mass surveillance and loss of privacy.

NZ Journalists asleep at the wheel

While the world digests the latest information revelations from Greenwald, Snowden and Assange regarding the overreach of the NSA and the 5 eyes spy network, the integrity of NZ journalists covering the ongoing saga of Kim Dotcom vs the NZ government and specifically the Prime Minister John Key has sunk to an all time low. The clearly biased reporting of the NZ press in favour of the NZ government when the overwhelming mountain of evidence points to collusion between John Key, Hollywood and the various stakeholders in the western spy apparatus show a lock of global insight and willingness to be lead by tunnel vision rather than detailed analysis of the actual evidence presented.

Instead of looking closely into the facts that have been put forward and dissecting the timeline of events that occurred over the past 6 years while John Key has been at the helm of the GCSB and the NZ spy apparatus they prefer to take aim at the messengers instead. The unrelenting hypocrisy of the NZ media in presenting a biased attitude towards the information being given to them in clear and unmistakable language is a true indicator of the degree to which the NZ system has now been corrupted.

There is a rot in the global surveillance system and it is becoming a cancerous, tumourous, gangrenous stench. The global western powers should take note of the pace of the growth. They are now at severe risk of being consumed by the monster they have created.

Comprehension is not a Belief System

The recently released study on the level of disagreement versus agreement with climate science is widely interpreted in the mainstream press as a question of believing in climate science or not. They make a point that the countries with the highest levels of distrust or doubt in climate science are all the English speaking countries with US, AU, UK having the highest proportions of doubters.

What the journalists appear to miss it that climate science like all other scientific disciplines is not a belief system. They should not be saying that people believe in climate science. It’s categorically not true. You do not believe in the scientific research any more than you believe in the taste of an apple. It’s a matter of comprehension. Either you read and understand the research and data or you do not. No one asks you to believe that the television works or that we have satellites that allow us to communicate at near the speed of light. No one expects you to believe that we can launch a rocket into orbit or fly a plane from one city to the next.

We are not expected to believe in the climate science. It’s a matter of physics. The build up of the green house gases CO2 and Methane causes additional heat to be trapped in the earths atmosphere. This is basic fundamental physics in action. We can measure the density of the Gasses in the atmosphere over hundreds of thousands of year due to the records stored in the polar gaps. We can measure the atomic weight of the elements to ascertain the origin of the gasses and the quantities of each contributing source.

These items are debatable with data sets and measurements but they are not something that you have to believe or disbelieve. It’s is knowledge that is to be comprehended/ tested and quantified. That there are large numbers of people who are unable to comprehend even the basic physics of climate science is a testament to the failure of the education system in the countries where the proportion is highest.

Australia OneUp’s Amerika in Stoopidity

Australians deserve a pat on the back today after managing to oneup Amerika in the stoopid stakes and taking on the mantle of country every other country is laughing at. By allowing Phony Tony and his gang of cronies to officially endorse the anti climate change dogma of the ignorant and selfish fossil fuel industry bigwigs they have managed to solidify their place in an elite club of countries hated and ridiculed by the rest of the world.

It’s quite and achievement to knock Dubuwah off his post as most ridiculed Politician in the world. Phony Tony can take pride in his ironic achievement as being crowned the worlds stoopidest Politician.

The bitter irony is that by removing the carbon tax he has decreased the incentive for the coal companies to transition towards future proofing their industry by targeting fertilisers to green the desert and super strength light weight carbon steel for the transportation industries. Instead they want to continue burning up this valuable resource for energy. This is even more ridiculous because Australia has abundant renewable energy resources that every other country on the planet would consider a perpetual gold mine.

Coal as a Growth Resource

The global debate on energy when it comes to coal is focused on environmental degradation, big money corruption and Climate change. The main cause for alarm at the moment is the increasing consumption of energy resources in the quest to ensure economic growth targets are met. The issue is key in both China and India.

While the Chinese are making significant strides ahead in terms of solar energy installations having installed over 11GW of solar in the past year alone and just two weeks ago increasing yet again their internal solar energy production targets to 70GW by 2017 there is still the looming shadow of coal consumption that is fuelling the production of the solar panels hanging around like a bad smell.

The strange thing about the Chinese dependance on Coal is that they have all the facilities in place to ensure constant supply of Concentrated Solar Power. Instead of burning up the coal that is being shipped over from countries like Australia and Indonesia they could be using it as the raw material for Carbon Steel. In other words they are literally burning the future of construction in the quest for energy independence. This is surely an over sight on the part of the Chinese who in all other aspects are starting to lead the way or at the very least catch up when it comes to getting their ducks in a row.

We put the question out to those who are reading. Why is there not a consolidated effort on the part of China and India to utilise the abundant resources of Concentrated Solar Power and Thorium to enable a new green energy future? There is no need for producing any more nuclear weapons as we already have more than enough to kill everyone under the MAD doctrine so dual use nuclear technology has become redundant.

With a razor sharp focus on building out CSP and thorium energy storage we can easily overcome the pollution problem that currently plagues the modern industrialised world. Surely the amount of energy that is wasted on propping up the military industrial complex to enable the insane quest for perpetual war is better spent on creating energy positive or at the very least energy neutral solutions for the next generation of sustainable growth. We can then better use the remaining reserves of coal for feeding the people of the world and building out the next generation of infrastructure including a serious push into space exploration.

Quite simply burning coal in order to create energy is a gross waste of a finite resource when we could be using it as a construction and agricultural resource instead. Carbon fibre is one of the strongest construction materials that we have available to us. Arid nations such as Australia could make significant agricultural growth targets by using coal as a fertiliser.

By using Coal for the production of Carbon steel and fertiliser it is plainly obvious that we are literally wasting one of our most important resources by continuing to burn it as an energy source. The Coal industry would do well to remind everyone of the other things that coal can be and should be used for instead of just grossly polluting energy production.

We have more than enough Sunshine and thorium to enable us to move away from burning coal. Coal does not have to be consigned to the dustbin either. It can be used as a raw material for construction and agriculture instead. In a world where we need more fertile and arable land burning coal instead of using it for agriculture is just plain stupidity.

We envision a future where CSP and thorium are used to provide the sustainable energy to allow us to grow the food and construct the materials that we need to enable the global population to flourish.

Overwhelming Scientific Consensus

John Oliver has a go at explaining the scientific consensus around the AGW “debate”.

Russian Tactic to Control Black Sea

Judging by the weekends events in Ukraine the Russians have made the tactical and strategic decision to control the Black Sea bases or Crimea and Odessa. Effectively cutting off the Ukrainian Government in Kyiv from the Ocean. This could result in a landlocked nation and effectively scuttle the Us and Nato agenda of trying to control more of the Black Sea coastline and Russian infrastructure.

Why the US thinks that Russia would just roll over and let them strip away The Black sea ports is beyond anyone’s imagination. If they are not prepared to let the US control Syria then they surely will not back down over the Black Sea too.

The Ukrainian Government has made a bad mistake by letting the US attempt to take ownership of their coastline. They will end up with a divided country and have no access to coastal areas. After the Russians cut them off from the sea it will be a case of slowly but surely squeezing them out of Central Ukraine too. That might happen quickly with a military offensive but more likely it will happen over a long period of time just like the Hungarians have done to retake Transylvania.

Russian forces will not allow the US to gain more control of the Black Sea. Up to now Ukraine was considered a Russian Vassal territory and relatively free from US influence. With the US aggression showing no sign of abatement no one can blame the Russians for taking a more proactive position when it comes to defending their coastline and Black Sea ports.

Let’s just imagine for a minute what would happen if Russia or China was trying to take control of the Gulf of Mexico. This is no different and the US should know better than try to force Russia’s hand on the matter. Russia will not give in on this issue and Amerika doesn’t have the resources to make a serious attempt at controlling the region.

Apart from the waste of energy and resources that will come from battling Russia in Ukraine The US would be better off putting it’s efforts into energy conservation. The biggest waste of energy resources being the military industrial complex it makes sense for them to start the cutbacks there.
