Solar warnings, global warming and crimes against humanity

Malaysian Realist

United States Secretary of State John Kerry was in Indonesia where he issued a renewed call to arms to combat climate change, calling it a “weapon of mass destruction”.

We’ve been seeing a lot of unexpectedly cool weather across the world. While this may be explained by local phenomenon such as the Northeast Monsoon in Malaysia and the Polar Vortex in the USA, a longer term trend of worldwide cooling is headed our way.

I say this because the sun – the main source of light and heat for our planet – is approaching a combined low point in output. Solar activity rises and falls in different overlapping cycles, and the low points of several cycles will coincide in the near future:

A) 11-year Schwabe Cycle which had a minimum in 2008 and is due for the next minimum in 2019, then 2030. Even at its recent peak (2013) the sun had its lowest recorded activity in 200 years.

B) 87-year Gleissberg cycle which has a currently ongoing minimum period from 1997 – 2032, corresponding to the observed ‘lack of global warming’ (more on that later).

C) 210-year Suess cycle which has its next minimum predicted to be around 2040.

Hence, solar output will very likely drop to a substantial low around 2030 – 2040. This may sound pleasant for Malaysians used to sweltering heat, but it is really not a matter to be taken lightly. Previous lows such as the Year Without A Summer (1816) and the Little Ice Age (16th to 19th century) led to many deaths worldwide from crop failures, flooding, superstorms and freezing winters.

But what about the much-ballyhooed global warming, allegedly caused by increasing CO2 levels in the atmosphere? Won’t that more than offset the coming cooling, still dooming us all to a feverish Earth?

Regarding this matter, it is now a plainly accepted fact that there has been no global temperature rise in the past 25 years. This lack of warming is openly admitted by: NASA; The UK Met Office; the University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit, as well as its former head Dr. Phil Jones (he of the Climategate data manipulation controversy); Hans von Storch (Lead Author for Working Group I of the IPCC); James Lovelock (inventor of the Gaia Theory); and media entities the BBC, Forbes, Reuters, The Australian, The Economist, The New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal.

And this is despite CO2 levels having risen more than 13%, from 349 ppm in 1987 to 396ppm today. The central thesis of global warming theory – that rising CO2 levels will inexorably lead to rising global temperatures, followed by environmental catastrophe and massive loss of human life – is proven false.

(All the above are clearly and cleanly depicted by graphs, excerpts, citations and links in my collection at – as a public service.)

This is probably why anti-CO2 advocates now warn of ‘climate change’ instead. But pray tell, exactly what mechanism is there for CO2 to cause climate change if not by warming? The greenhouse effect has CO2 trapping solar heat and thus raising temperatures – as we have been warned ad nauseum by climate alarmists – so how does CO2 cause climate change when there is no warming?

Solar activity is a far larger driver of global temperature than CO2 levels, because after all, without the sun there would be no heat for greenhouse gases to trap in the first place. (Remember what I said about the Gleissberg cycle above?)

And why is any of this important to you and I? It matters because countless resources are being spent to meet the wrong challenges. Just think of all the time, energy, public attention and hard cash that have already been squandered on biofuel mandates, subsidies for solar panels and wind turbines, carbon caps and credits, bloated salaries of dignitaries, annual jet-setting climate conferences in posh five-star hotels… To say nothing of the lost opportunities and jobs (two jobs lost for every one ‘green’ job created in Spain, which now has 26% unemployment!). And most of the time it is the common working man, the taxpayer, you and I who foot the bill.

What if all this immense effort and expenditure had been put towards securing food and clean water for the impoverished (combined 11 million deaths/year)? Or fighting dengue and malaria (combined 1.222 million deaths/year)? Or preserving rivers, mangroves, rainforests and endangered species? Or preparing power grids for the increased demand that more severe winters will necessitate – the same power grids now crippled by shutting down reliable coal plants in favour of highly intermittent wind turbines?

In the face of such dire needs that can be met immediately and effectively, continuing to throw away precious money to ‘possibly, perhaps, maybe one day’ solve the non-problem of CO2 emissions is foolish, arrogant and arguably malevolent. To wit, the UN World Food Programme just announced that they are forced to scale back aid to some of the 870 million malnourished worldwide due to a $1 billion funding shortfall and the challenges of the ongoing Syrian crisis. To put this is context, a billion is a mere pittance next to the tens of billions already flushed away by attempted adherence to the Kyoto Protocol (€6.2 billion for just Germany in just 2005 alone!).

During the high times for global warmist doomsaying, sceptics and realists who questioned the unproven theories were baselessly slandered as ‘anti-science’, ‘deniers’, ‘schills for big oil’… Or even ‘war criminals’ deserving Nuremberg-style trials for their ‘crimes against humanity’!

Even now in the midst of a quarter-century of no temperature change, John Kerry derided sceptics as ‘shoddy scientists’ and ‘extreme ideologues’ who are ‘burying their head in the sand’. Ironic then that nature herself seems to be acting the ‘extreme ideologue’ by refusing to cooperate with the fantasies of climate panickers!

Now that the tables are turned, just let it be known that it was not the sceptics who flushed massive amounts of global resources down the drain – while genuine human and environmental issues languished and withered in the empty shadow of global warming hysteria. Crimes against humanity, indeed.


All that said, I totally do not expect any apologies to be forthcoming from Datuk Renji Sathiah.

And how about some illustrative comics via Global Warming Rage Comics:

Temperature Discontinuity-gate

January 27, 14

Add another to the list of climate data scandals!

Via Principia Scientific, discovered by Steven Goddard:


Breaking: New Climate Data Rigging Scandal Rocks US Government

In effect, the adjustments to the “raw” thermometer measurements made by the climate scientists “turns a 90 year cooling trend into a warming trend,” says the astonished Goddard.

Goddard’s plain-as-day evidence not only proves the officially-claimed one-degree increase in temperatures is entirely fictitious, it also discredits the reliability of any assertion by such agencies to possess a reliable and robust temperature record.

Goddard continues: “I discovered a huge error in their adjustments between V1 and V2. This is their current US graph. Note that there is a discontinuity at 1998, which doesn’t look right. Globally, temperatures plummeted in 1999, but they didn’t in the US graph.”

It doesn’t look right, because they made a gigantic error (possibly intentional) going from USHCN V1 to V2. In V1 they adjusted recent temperatures upwards (thin line below) and made no adjustment to older temperatures.

“But when they switched to V2, they started adjusting older temperatures downwards, and left post-2000 temperatures more or less intact, ” says Goddard. This created a huge jump (greater than one degree) downwards for all years prior to 2000. You can see what they did in the animation below.

Blue line is thermometer data. Thin red line is V1 adjusted. Thick red line is V2 adjusted. They created more than 1 degree warming by reversing polarity of the adjustment in the pre-2000 years. This created a double downwards adjustment for the pre-1998 years, relative to the post 1998 years.

Poor Martin Khor, Still Desperately Pushing Global Warming Which No One Else Believes in Anymore

October 31, 11

I admit that I will gleefully engage in plenty of schadenfreude and I toooooooollllld you so when the global warming hysterians and hucksters are finally forced to eat their words. Especially Martin Khor.

Floods and global climate chaos

Global Trends

Climate scientists are reluctant to link each of the floods directly to climate change, as this is hard to prove. But there is a general belief that global warming contributes to the increased incidence of flooding.

A scientist at the World Meteo­rological Organisation last year explained how the warming of the oceans increased cloud formation and contributed to the devastating Pakistan floods.

Dublin was affected by flash floods earlier this year. An Irish newspaper, linking it to climate change, cited a flood risk management report of the Office of Public Works in 2009 which claimed that “the frequency, pattern and severity of flooding are expected to increase as a result of climate change.”

Meanwhile, a United Kingdom government-linked report released last week described how climate change is likely to create hundreds of millions of refugees around the world as they try to escape from areas affected by global warming.

The refugees may have to move from their homes as climate change induces events such as floods, droughts, storms and heatwaves, according to the Foresight group, part of Britain’s Office for Science.

However, many of these refugees may move into even worse affected areas, such as coastal areas that are vulnerable to floods from storms and sea level rise.

The floods and the sobering predictions on climate refugees are sober reminders that political leaders need to take global warming more seriously. The interest to act globally on climate change has waned in the past two years.

So global warming causes more flooding, including the curent Thailand floods.

…Even though the globe didn’t warm in the past 15 years:

Global Warming Rage Comic

And maybe, just maybe, the world is yawning about climate change action because of the ever-mounting evidence that Anthropogenic Global Warming is bunk.

Or maybe it is semi-regular revelations of faked ‘science’ supporting AGW.

Or it could be that more and more scientists are refuting AGW:

900+ peer-reviewed papers skeptical of AGW.
31,000 prominent scientists deny AGW
Another 1000 scientists reject AGW
230 signatories from the American Physical Society skeptical of AGW
Nobel Prize for Physics winner quits the American Physical Society to protest its belief in AGW

But don’t tell that to Martin Khor, the tears of grief he sheds may cause another localized flood.

Climategate 2.0 emails – thread #2: Continuation of the above (via AoSHQ)

ClimateGate 2 Emails Show BBC Routinely Asking Global Warming Zealots To “Vet” Their Newscripts, Offer Advice on How To Better Evangelize for Global Warming: The whole article is loaded with new anecdotes about BBC hands “blocking” (in their own words) coverage of global warming sketpics — and bragging about this to Phil Jones and his cronies, and begging Jones’ forgiveness for the one or two skeptics they weren’t able to block.

The Steve Zwick Guide to Defending the Indefensible: Of course, if this were really a valid defense, then Jones wouldn’t constantly be trying to sneak around such laws. For example, Jones loudly complains that he’d been deleting emails all day in response to an FOI request that didn’t come with a fee. Of course, his friend Tim Osborn, realizing that Jones had incriminated himself, and that the emails would be stored for years in their system, gives him a *wink wink* and *nudge nudge* and suggests that what Phil really meant was that the FOI request merely spurred him into doing a regular cleanup of his email. He further suggest that they use other methods of communication that can’t be traced.

1985 to 2011 Period Proves Piracy/Global Warming Link

March 2, 11

Have you seen this scary chart released by the Pastafarians before?

What’s that you say? Just a load of hogwash? Correlation does not imply causation?

Well, in any case pirate attacks have been increasing in recent years, mostly thanks to the Somalis.

Yessir, piracy has made a big comeback!

And wouldn’t you know it, what do we find happening to the planet?

“No statistically significant warming for the past 15 years” – Dr. Phil Jones, Head of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (and centre of the main Climategate scandal

“No warming from 1999-2008” – British Hadley Centre scientists

“No warming in 11 years” – BBC

“Global average temperature did not increase from 1998-2005” – Telegraph UK

Or to put it in a Rage way:

Global Warming Rage Comic

And record cold and snowfall in past years. Just look at the recent Snowmageddons!

There you have it: Conclusive proof that lack of pirates causes global warming, and increased pirate numbers gives Mother Gaia a flu.

Nobel Peace Prize over here please!
