Happy New Year to you too!

Your post was a really engrossing read and yet it left me with that exasperation when you know you'll probably never get through to this type of person as they are so deeply conditioned. I have a colleague who is what I'd describe as a pound shop Lineker - lives in a posh area and is your typical leftie who promotes the idea of uncontrolled immigration as it doesn't actually affect him. He's totally on board with the 'man made climate crisis' narrative and always trots out the standard 'I believe in science' retorts if I ever raise a question on the subject. A couple of years ago I dropped a comment into the team WhatsApp group when the UK's 'hottest temperature ever' was recorded right next to the runway at RAF Coningsby just as several Typhoon jets were landing. "Oh, I suppose all the thermometers are colluding to produce these extreme events?" was his response 🙄

This is a really great read, Tom. It’s also very much on the money. How people give our illustrious leaders a free ride (quite literally) when flying into these events in their private jets in their thousands (soon to be repeated for the Davos soirée!). No one says a word against that. All just so they can have their discussion about how the little people have to give up things so they don’t have to.

Of course, its a great earner for all the clingers-on brigade, ex-politicians and industry leaders, all making an absolute mint out of pushing ‘climate change’ (formerly ‘global warming,’ but that proved too difficult to sell to the masses as it was too easy to disprove....climate change could encompass all sorts of weather phenomenon they could sell as ‘extreme’ and as being your fault and mine). The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the needs of the expanding bureaucracy. It’s a win win for the purveyors of the greatest wealth transfer in history.

I predict more ‘extreme’ weather for 2024! Don’t you!? 🤣

What a brilliant line 'The bureaucracy is expanding to meet the needs of the expanding bureaucracy.' is . Spot on Simon. It's horrific really , this expansion of jobs all intended (at some remove) to be governing over us. And the rather poisonous entitlement that runs in these folks' blood. Absolutely more extreme weather, and everyone laps it up like covid and ukraine flags.

they promoting is Co2 is the problem thats bullocks the problem is methane and hydro sulfate that amazon book "Fever Rising" explains this, the Geo-engineering is causing bad side effects and their abusing the weather modification program, IBM, Google measure methane levels, if you remove co2 you will destroy all plant life and all animals that will reduce the human population to be forced to live in some Dome Dystopian City, plants need C02, what I see they did where I live knock down trees on side of mountain to power the high school with solar panels.

It's a horrific image isn't it. But you're right. They cut down trees to accommodate solar farms and wind farms - also look at the language. Calling it a wind 'farm' make sit sound all bucolic! How about Sea Container storage farm..?!

Adam, if you read William Happers work with William van Wijngaarden on gases effect on climate in the atmosphere you will see that methane has an almost non existent impact on climate and doubling it doesn't increase it much.

The whole of this video by Will v Wijn should be compulsory viewing but if you only want to see methane start at 17mins. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rgP-lwf2tb8

David King - wasn't he the one telling us to drive diesel cars to save the planet some years ago? And as for The Times - I often send them letters asking why we never see their 'earth is doomed' supplements on the same day as their 'best long-haul holidays' supplements. As yet, they have declined to publish these letters.

I bet they haven't! Funny that. And Yes, I think it is the same David King, who has now been knighted for his services despite his deep cluelessness. It's just all rotten to the core once you start looking; it's just that most people don't.

Ackman will know, once he takes down the MIT professoriate and admin he will move on to other targets. Remember the 2005 Iodonnidis paper that most research is irreproducible? A big pendulum is swinging back and it will crash into many institutions.

Marvellous invective. I would be tempted to plagiarize it, except I might be caught by Bill Ackman and his AI!

Haha! Who knows anymore what's plagiarised or not! Thank you for reading. All the best, Tom

Could I ask where you knew that from? Wouldn't mind a link.

Great article, but with one glaring omission: the net zero zealots are not only being propagandised by a green industry incentivised by money (in fact, this is a small influencer), they are being propagandised by an elite cabal that control the green industry and whose mission it is to control behaviour, control spending and restrict movement. Net Zero is a tool being used to silently advance a communist agenda.

Absolutely Martin. I wished to avoid that in this article - but will be revisiting that. Thanks so much for reading. And a happy new year to you. We need to be vigilant.

Given plankton feeds on Co2 in sea water then shouldn't an increase in Co2 mean an increase in plankton (after all, all that free food just floating around out there aint gonna consume itself right?)?

And if plankton has increased then doesnt this mean its good times for everything else feeding upon plankton and the things that eat plankton?

Or is the Co2 in the water the wrong kind? ;)

This is an excellent point that I intend to look into for my next post. The earth is already greener thanks to increase in CO2 levels. So that's good news - or at least you'd think so!

I'm not sure where to post this - but whoever posted this article elsewhere thank you so much. It's increased my subscribers and readership fourfold. It's really massively appreciated. I feel as though I have some readers now! Thank you!

6 H2O + 6 CO2 +sunlight -> C6H12O6 + 6 O2 .....Plantlife.

C6H12O6 + 6 O2 -> 6 CO2 + 6H2O + Energy.... Animal life, or fire.

Not a toxin or a poison in sight, actually the gas of life. That's why they are banning it, population control is everything to these people.

Evidence that climate stasis has ever existed is absent. Climate change is constant. Human lifespans allow us to observe weather, not climate.

Good essay but too long for most people, should be 500 words max. Why not answer your own question >> how much CO2 is man-made?' I believe it's around 0.12% of 'greenhouse gases' of which 96% is naturally occurring water vapour. But the really big, $50 million dollar question is 'who has been engineering the climate hoax for over 40 years? Who is REALLY behind it and why?' I know but do you or any of your readers?

the climate has always change on this planet since it was created, the govs are controlling the weather due to the pollution that collapse the original weather ecosystem from creating rain the byproducts after effects "Industrial Revolution" ....

is a scam, their geo engineering the weather 50s degrees , to 40 degrees here on US East Coast is finally 30 degrees now, on Xmas it was 64 degrees, the climate always been change, this climate change stuff is just a grifter scam to steal more money and to lower the standard of living...
