Australia Must Clexit – “Leave While We Still Can”

by Bob Beatty, Brisbane, Australia

Australia should CLEXIT the Paris accord while the opportunity is still open to us. It is an evil attempt to coerce a free people into an undemocratic collective, otherwise described as a World Government.

Nothing could be better designed to result in widespread anarchy than this proposal. The United Nations must be widely condemned for instigating such a dangerous waste of scarce human resources.

“Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.”

Never has this old idiom been more appropriate than when applied to the fake science of Anthropogenic Global Warming.

The AGW doctrine can only lead to a dangerously weak Australian economy. Australia should support US leadership in this regard, and leave the “Paris Accord” as a matter of urgency, before it does more to undermine our natural energy and pastoral advantages.

Forests of Wind Turbines are giving useful Wind Power a Bad Name.”

One of the insidious side effects of this AGW scam is the building of inefficient, intrusive wind turbines across wide areas of our land. These blights on the landscape (which produce intermittent unreliable power) give wind power a bad name. As a result, we may eventually “throw the baby out with the bath water”.

It should be remembered that wind power pumped the North Sea out of the Netherlands, it pumps bore water at remote sites, and it powered the ships that discovered and settled Australia.

Technical advances in wind sail technology have provided craft competing in the America’s Cup which travel at speeds up to 2.2 times faster than the wind.

Other wind inspired technology development with which I have been associated, shows wind can be used to drought proof large inland regions, and provide despatchable electric power. See https://principia-scientific.org/wind-into-wine/

The conclusion we can draw from these experiences is that wind associated with water can be a very beneficial association, but wind imposed on Australian base load power supplies is a hugely destructive exercise which can only be justified with large publicly funded subsidies. These policies are a direct result of our “Paris/UN” inspired political collaboration which we must effectively exit as a matter of urgency.

Brexit and Clexit: “Leave Means Leave”

by Roger Tattersall

Roger is a founding member of Clexit: https://clexit.net/about/

He also runs the astrophysics, climate science and energy policy blog: http://tallbloke.wordpress.com.

He is very active in the Brexit campaign. http://leavemeansleave.eu

The UK’s political class is being dragged reluctantly towards taking Britain out the EU as the majority of the electorate instructed them to do in the 2016 Brexit referendum.

People power is also asserting itself on climate policy as voters wake up to the facts:

  • So-called “renewable energy” is expensive and unreliable.
  • Carbon taxes are unpopular and damage economies.
  • The largest countries such as the USA, China, India and Russia are not committing to significant real emissions reduction.
  • There is no convincing evidence that reducing emissions will make a measurable reduction to global surface temperature (even if that was a worthwhile goal).

Researcher Bjorn Lomborg recently published a paper in which he estimates that even using the IPCC’s own inflated formulas that relate global temperatures to atmospheric CO2, economy-crippling reductions in emissions might reduce surface temperature by an unmeasurable 0.02o C to 0.05o C by the year 2100. Meanwhile these emission-reduction rules are killing the economy and inflating electricity prices. Plain common sense tells us that these policies are wasting resources and money.

Moreover, the science is not settled. At the recent Porto Climate Conference, presentations were made by experts on diverse subjects including:

  • CO2 sensitivity (low),
  • sea level changes (1.1mm/year globally),
  • the insignificance of bovine flatulence,
  • the possibility that it is atmospheric mass which affects surface temperature rather than the percentages of ‘greenhouse gases’ in the atmosphere,
  • the tragic loss of life in the Grenfell tower inferno which was caused by EU regulations driven by “climate-scare”.

In addition, climate policies tied to foreign aid are forcing African people to continue cooking over charcoal and dung because electrical power generation on a large scale is deemed “undesirable”. And while boosting the use of biomass may help “green energy” statistics, it also shortens lives and reduces the ability of African societies to add value to the raw materials they produce. There are also knock-on effects which are driving mass migration.

Climate change is not the problem – climate policy is! We urge all Governments to exit their destructive climate policies.

CLEXIT NOW!

US TRYING TO HOLD ONTO THEIR CLEXIT

We did elect Trump to get us out of the Paris Agreement; we did our Clexit, we are trying to hold on to it. One biggest problem, in the fight against CO2 alarmism is the huge number of Luke-Warmers that say they are on our side. Promoting a CO2 sensitivity that is almost 2 degrees supports the idea that CO2 has a serious role in temperature regulation. Water, in all of its states, is abundant and water, ice, and water vapor, is the self correcting force that keeps earth temperature in narrow bounds, much more narrow bounds during the recent ten thousand year Holocene. Climate changes in natural cycles and man does not cause them.

Why Australia should Clexit Paris Treaty

It is clear that the push to meet the Paris carbon dioxide emission targets is leading to higher power costs, and hence prices, and unreliable supply.

It is also a fact that the predictions of the warmists have not happened.

The IPCC scientific reports are stated in possibilities, yet the guidance for policy makers is written as certainty. A farce.

I hope the new leadership of the Australian Government has the courage to guide our country in a rational manner on this subject as Angus Taylor seems keen to do, and abandons the Paris Treaty.

Climatologist Dr. Tim Ball: CLEXIT: Canada Must Get Out of the UN Paris Climate Agreement

CLEXIT: Canada Must Get Out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

By Dr. Timothy Ball

I am proud to be the Canadian representative for the climate exit (CLEXIT) movement. Canada has more culpability than any other nation in creating and perpetuating the deception. It is not hyperbole to say that Canada was central to creating and mobilizing the false claim of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). The idea that humans were causing runaway global warming originated with the Club of Rome. Formed in 1968 by David Rockefeller, it expanded on the Malthusian idea that the population would outgrow the food supply. The expansion was that world population would outgrow all resources. They made three major assumptions.

  • The demand for resources would increase every year because the population is increasing every year.
  • Developed nations increase the demand by using resources at a much greater rate than developing nations.
  • More nations are changing from developing to developed and accelerating demand.

They produced a few books and reports to substantiate the claims about population and demand. Paul Ehrlich’s 1968 The Population Bomb garnered enormous attention. Less well read but still influential was the 1972 book Limits to Growth by Meadows et al. It used a very primitive computer program that started with two components. The known volume of a resource and the current rate of use. Then, using a simple linear trend, it projected the point at which the resource would run out. It also projected the point at which the volume of the resource use peaked. Another book published in 1977, Ecoscience, Population, Resources, and Environment, influenced policy for a long time because of Paul Ehrlich’s co-author John Holdren. He later became Science Advisor in the Obama White House.

Germany’s Grand Plan to Abolish Carbon Fuels Fails

Germany’s Energiewende – Lessons for Australia from Germany

In March 2017, the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy published a brochure announcing that the Energiewende, its renewable energy revolution, was ‘a success story’.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

The Energiewende (Grand Plan) has the goal of making Germany independent of fossil fuels in the long term. Coal, oil and gas were to be phased out, allowing drastic reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. However, these goals have not even begun to be achieved.

The Energiewende was only driven forward in the electricity sector, which, accounts for only one-fifth of energy consumption. There were hardly any successes in the heating/cooling and transport sectors.

And so carbon dioxide emissions in Germany have been rising since 2009, even though well over a hundred billion euros have been spent on the expansion of solar and wind energy over the same period. The financial obligations undertaken in the process will continue to burden taxpayers for another two decades and will end up costing German consumers a total sum of around 550 billion euros.

Despite this enormous effort, security of supply is increasingly under threat. At the same time, people and the biosphere are suffering; wildlife protection has become subordinated to climate mitigation, even though the possibility of achieving the goals of reducing carbon dioxide emissions is becoming increasingly distant and the measures for the energy transition seem to become more and more questionable from a constitutional point of view.

800 regional associations in Germany commissioned a report on the achievements of the Grand Plan, supported by 24 German experts in all relevant fields.

“In this review we would like to inform a public debate and set out a reasonable course for energy policy in Germany.”

It details stark lessons for Australia. They have produced a very clear readable summary of all aspects of the German electricity disaster.

UN Pleads for Climate Accord Ratification before Mass “Clexit”

From: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/jul/19/paris-climate-agreement-un-pushes-fast-track-ratif/

By Valerie Richardson – The Washington Times – Tuesday, July 19, 2016

The United Nations has issued a plea for nations to fast-track ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement as some countries are backtracking on support for the deal’s sweeping restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged nations to attend a “special event” Thursday where they may deposit their “instruments of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession to the Paris Agreement on climate change.”

“I urge you to accelerate your country’s domestic process for ratification of the Agreement this year,” Mr. Ban said in a statement.

Waves and Tides

Watching Weather Waves, but Missing Climate Tides.

By Viv Forbes, 17 July 2018


The climate alarm media, the bureaucracy and the Green Energy industry follow an agenda which is served by inflating any short-term weather event into a climate calamity. They should take a long-term view.

Earth’s climate is never still – it is always changing, with long-term trends, medium-term reversals and minor oscillations. Humanity is best served by those who use good science to study geology, astronomy and climate history searching for clues to climate drivers and the underlying natural cycles and trends hidden in short-term weather fluctuations.

For the last 10,000 years Earth has basked in the Holocene Interglacial which is the latest of many warm cycles within the Pleistocene Ice Age. There are small warm and cool cycles within the Holocene. Today we enjoy the Modern Warm Cycle (which started about calendar 1900) following the Little Ice Age which bottomed in about 1750.

What does the future hold? The past gives clues to the future.
