There’s no great mystery about what Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese’s net-zero-by-2050 emissions announcement last weekend will cost. The answer: trillions galore. How do I know? Because Dr Brian Fisher, former head of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, who has no political allegiance and no vested interest, last May in the run-up to the federal election costed a much weaker version of Albanese’s plan. These costs were astronomic: a maximum $540 billion by 2030. Continue reading “Net-Zero by 2050? Albanese Goes for Broke”

The term “climate denier” continues to be used by those promoting catastrophic global warming from the trivial emissions of anthropogenic carbon dioxide. It is a derogatory term, first coined by the journalist Ellen Goodman. In 2007 she wrote for the Boston Globe:

Dennis Prager responded to Goodman’s vitriol: Continue reading “Petitions from Climate Realists”
This essay is by Guus Berkhout, President of CLINTEL. It is based on the text and the explanation of The World Climate Declaration (see: https://saltbushclub.com/2019/11/21/no-climate-emergency/).
A global network of more than 800 prominent scientists and experienced professionals has signed the World Climate Declaration. The statements of the Declaration contain a clear message: ‘There is NO Climate Emergency’. The Declaration also states that CO 2 is NOT a pollutant but a blessing for our planet and that current computer models of climate – on which international policy is founded – are unfit for their purpose. Therefore, it is unwise to advocate spending trillions of dollars on the basis of speculative results from such immature models. Current climate policies not only dangerously undermine the global economic system, but they also put lives at risk in countries where large-scale access to reliable and affordable electricity is made unfeasible. In part I of this essay the Declaration is shown. In part II the Science behind the Declaration is explained. The essay ends with a message to the young generation.
