A Glimmer Of Hope

featured AnInconvenient Truth

I case any of you wondered, I am not (and never likely to be) a parent. There are many good and bad aspects to this, but one I don’t have any qualms about is bringing children up in the society we have now. The free and easy childhood most of us can remember is gone, unlikely to return. Instead it’s ... Read More »

Who Sold You This Then?

itshappening-no-real-signs-of-a-brighter-future

Many years ago (when Pontius was a pilot, as father used to say) mention the name John Cleese and it would conjure up the zany comedy show Monty Python’s Flying Circus – Fawlty Towers came later. To capitalise on their new found fame, Cleese and other members of the Python crew formed their own production company and made several industry ... Read More »

“Experts”

featured

I often refer to Richard North and less so to Autonomous Mind for their sterling efforts in exposing media bias and outright lies. Both are usually to be found giving the likes of the Telegraph and the Mail a good kicking, but I intend to lower the tone and do the same with a “Down Market Tabloid” – namely the ... Read More »

Open Thread 28/10/13

Another Open Thread for your thoughts and discussions. To get the ball rolling I suggest you pop over to Goodnight Vienna’s blog and read all about the latest threat to our freedoms. The next time I hear an impassioned cry from some Green activist to “Think about our children’s future” I won’t be worrying about a few more parts per ... Read More »

A Missed Opportunity

featured

Bugger, talk about “Missed Opportunity” – I go out to the garden for 10 minutes, and as soon as I step back inside mother informs me she has just been pestered at the door by a man and woman team trying to get us to have cavity wall insulation. The fact that they were both wearing Hi-Viz jerkins should be ... Read More »

Another Bubble Bursts…

Windcrop Call In Liquidators Job Losses Wind Turbines Finance renewables bankrupt bubble bursts scam wind turbine feed in tariffs MD John Moore insolvency

You may remember my post last year about the small wind turbine installation company Windcrop. After the main bulk of comments a few more trickled in, two from people who claimed to know something about the company. Then on Tuesday was this astonishing comment claiming to be from the MD, John Moore: It’s difficult to know how to respond to ... Read More »

It’s all going pear shaped…

Wind Farm

For the “Renewables” industry. Cheerful Soul’s cartoons seemed to have been well received – the subject of renewable energy and the scams involved are one I have touched on several times. So on visiting the Caithness Windfarm Information Forum today I was  interested in their headline article. It reports how a group of individuals have scored a major victory in ... Read More »

Carbon Tax Cartoon Time

featured

“And now for something completely different” – to quote Monty Python. MaxFarquar regular “Cheerful Soul” sent me a selection of cartoons from Down Under (the cartoons that is, not him), which poke fun at two faced PM, Julia Gillard. She has achieved notoriety for claiming that she would never introduce a Carbon Tax, and then doing precisely that once in ... Read More »

Climate Change – Are We Bothered?

Climate Change

Apparently not – Joe Public writes: Knowing the healthy level of scepticism shown by this blog’s esteemed readers about Climate Change, it should come as no surprise that ‘ordinary folk’ too, share similar beliefs. A somewhat unscientific but nevertheless plausible proxy for citizens’ concerns must be the popularity of Library Books. With that in mind, I undertook essential (but unfortunately ... Read More »

The british energy challenge

British Energy Challenge

A Guest post: It seems the UK population is not gullible-enough for this government’s liking. With a healthy, questioning attitude to most things scientific, we really do abide by the Royal Society’s motto:  ‘Nullius in verba’ which roughly translates as ‘take nobody’s word for it’. This is particularly so when it comes to so-called Global Warming; sorry, “Climate Change”. Immense ... Read More »

BBC – standards of journalism

Biased-BBC

A Guest post from Joe Public. “Auntie” BBC invested a fortune in wining & dining 28 so-called ‘climate experts’ to teach staff how to spread ‘Global Warming’ propaganda. One suggestion from that seminar was to get journalists to report stories with a consistent “Global Warming / Climate Change is happening’ theme. This could be achieved by either “not asking the ...

Friday Funnies by Microdave

featured

I’ve decided to have a food flavoured (sic) theme this week. But first, if we get any more Global Warming this winter, you might want to invest in a pair of these: Now imagine the complaints there would be if a UK company operated trucks with this sort of sign-writing on the back: One truck driver who didn’t exactly have ...

Perth Forecast

Sorry for the later posting than usual, but everyday life has got in the way – first our boiler succumbed to severe constipation, which I have managed to cure, then this morning I spotted water dripping out of my neighbours back door.. Anyway, Joe Public sends the first item (he didn’t say if was him in the picture) of an ... Read More »

Met Office DECC CRU UEA BBC Gravy Train Heads For The Buffers - Global Warming science research grants broadcasting university confirmed scare stories data

Hi Max. I’d be obliged if you would post this “Cri du coeur”  from “a reader who prefers to remain anonymous” . My family is facing destitution, and I seek advice from your readers, or, Agony Uncle Saxon. Various of my relations are employed by the Met Office, DECC, CRU-UEA & the BBC. For years they’ve enjoyed a comfortable living creating ... Read More »
