I started this blog in June 2007 asking these questions: Are we in a massive asset bubble that will blow up in our faces ??? - ANSWERED YES ! Is western and particularly British society on the verge of social collapse??? What are the best common sense long term investment strategies to keep you rich? When will consumption/debt bubble economics end and a real savings/production economy begin ???

In economics, the Jevons paradox (sometimes called the Jevons effect) is the proposition that technological progress that increases the efficiency with which a resource is used, tends to increase (rather than decrease) the rate of consumption of that resource. It is historically called the Jevons Paradox as it ran counter to popular intuition. However, the situation is well understood in modern economics. In addition to reducing the amount needed for a given use, improved efficiency lowers the relative cost of using a resource – which increases demand and speeds economic growth, further increasing demand. Overall resource use increases or decreases depending on which effect predominates.
Can we really believe politicians when they talk about their concern for what kind of weather our great grandchildren might experience?
How and why Margaret Thatcher invented global warming.
George Hunt was there at the start and knows Maurice Strong's Real Agenda:
MIT Climatologist Richard Lindzen on the Politics of Global Warming:
Crimes of the climate Mafia:
Nobody is interested in solutions if they don't think there's a problem. Given that starting point, I believe it is appropriate to have an over-representation of factual presentations on how dangerous it is, as a predicate for opening up the audience to listen to what the solutions are, and how hopeful it is that we are going to solve this crisis. - Al Gore 2006
Reconstruction of the 1850 to present day warming trend from Met Office data.
THIS IS NOT A HOCKEY STICK ! :
Inside the 'hockey stick', the last 10 years:
To disprove the `Hockey Stick', it is sufficient to merely demonstrate conclusively the existence of the Medieval Warm Period and/or the Little Ice Age in proxy and/or historical evidence from around the world. According to the `falsifiability' principle of science, substantial physical evidence that contradicts a theory is sufficient to `falsify' that theory. To that end, `exhibits' of physical evidence are presented below to prove that not only is the `Hockey Stick' false, but that the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age were not only very real - but also global in extent:
Climategate: the final nail in the coffin of 'Anthropogenic Global Warming' :
Conspiracy, collusion in exaggerating warming data, possibly illegal destruction of embarrassing information, organised resistance to disclosure, manipulation of data, private admissions of flaws in their public claims and much more.
Phil Jones offers myriad reasons for not sharing data:
Lord Lawson, the former chancellor, has called for an independent inquiry into claims that leading climate change scientists manipulated data to strengthen the case for man-made global warming:

U. S. Senate Minority Report: More Than 700 International Scientists Dissent Over. Man-Made Global Warming Claims:
Lord Christopher Monckton, former science adviser to Margaret Thatcher, on Climategate and global warming:
The Great Global Warming Swindle:
BBC accused of institutional 'trendy left-wing bias':
The report also urged the BBC not to "close down the debate" on climate change, despite the corporation admitting that it no longer felt it necessary to justify equal space being given to opponents of the consensus on the issue.
Where did the medieval warm period go ???
Al Gore could become world's first carbon billionaire:
The Climate Science Isn't Settled
Confident predictions of catastrophe are unwarranted:
New paper from Lindzen demonstrates low climate sensitivity with observational data:
Christopher Monckton spent an entire hour on the Glenn Beck program today on the topic of global warming, skepticism, and the Copenhagen Treaty:
Ian Plimer Author and Professor in the School of Earth & Environmental Sciences, University of Adelaide
"Heaven and Earth: Global Warming, the Missing Science":
Does Dr. Holdren (Obama Science Tzar) have a worst-case bias in his interpretation of data?
" The effects of a new ice age on agriculture and the supportability of large human populations scarcely need elaboration here. Even more dramatic results are possible, however; for instance, a sudden outward slumping in the Antarctic ice cap, induced by added weight, could generate a tidal wave of proportions unprecedented in recorded history. "
'Cloud ship' scheme to deflect the sun's rays is favourite to cut global warming:
These clouds, it is predicted, would reflect around one or two per cent of the sunlight that would otherwise warm the ocean, thereby cancelling out the greenhouse effect caused by Carbon Dioxide emissions:
Man-made volcanoes may cool Earth:
THE Royal Society is backing research into simulated volcanic eruptions, spraying millions of tons of dust into the air, in an attempt to stave off climate change.
The society will this week call for a global programme of studies into geo-engineering — the manipulation of the Earth’s climate to counteract global warming — as the world struggles to cut greenhouse gas emissions.
In the 70's Environmentalists and left-wing politicians got DDT banned, 40 million people have died of malaria since then!

Internal EPA report on global climate change suggests "the hypothesis fails":
Why was Jones so afraid of the two MMs? Because they had debunked Mike's--or Michael Mann of Penn State University's--infamous "hockey stick" graph that supposedly offered proof positive that humans were warming the earth. It showed that global temperatures had remained flat for a millennium only to spike sharply in the 20th century following the industrial revolution. But McIntyre and McKitrick found that the innocent "tricks" that Mann was performing on the data were so riddled with methodological errors that even the IPCC was forced to remove the graph from its official reports:

A story emerging out of Britain suggests “follow the money” may explain the enthusiasm of the United Nations to pursue caps on carbon emissions:
How can the world’s leading ‘climate official’ also be personally involved in so many organisations which stand to benefit from the IPCC’s recommendations ?
