Today is Climate Fools Day

Dear All

Today is Climate Fools Day and Viv Forbes is reminding us below of why we are still “celebrating” it.

It is only a coincidence that the education authorities have caught up with the day by deciding (at last) to make Al Gore’s film part of the school curriculum. A possible accompanying addition would be the Four Lions film, in which four Pakistanis in Britain practising Jihad in Pakistan succeed in sending a missile that blows up Osama bin Laden.

To whet the appetite further, Bob Carter has invited us to consider that we appear to have a PM who believes CO2 is a pollutant and I have suggested that her climate change policy is not a market-based reform. Us knaves have much to celebrate.

Today is Climate Fools Day

Statement by Viv Forbes, Chairman, The Carbon Sense Coalition

Today, 27th October 2010, is Climate Fools Day.

For the last 20 years politicians, jets setting bureaucrats and vested interests have been plotting how to make Climate Fools of the western world, taxing industry and consumers to fund green schemes, carbon speculators and international wealth redistribution.

The fightback by sceptical scientists and public was greatly boosted on the first Climate Fools Day when, in October 2008, British politicians passed with little dissent “The Climate Change Bill” a piece of legislation that future generations will come to accept was “the most absurd Bill that this Parliament has ever had to examine".

Since then, sceptics all over the world have exposed the lack of evidence, the manipulation of data, the misuse of scientific process, the corruption of vested interests and the powerful influence of natural factors in climate cycles.

Despite the now discredited projections of dangerous global warming, the globe itself has continued its normal weather defining cycles such as El Nino, La Nina, the Pacific Oscillations, the powerful solar cycles and the massive ebb and flow of oceans and atmosphere. On a longer time scale there is no evidence that the globe’s long history of recurrent ice ages and violent episodes of volcanic and earthquake activity have suddenly ceased.

Unfortunately, a whole generation of Climate Fools will have to be rooted out of our parliaments before Climate Sense reigns again. We will then see the massive flood of community resources currently being wasted on windmills, solar toys, alarmist junkets, silly subsidies and climate bureaucracy will be more sensibly directed towards preparation for coping with the real natural cycles of heat and cold, floods and droughts, cyclones and earthquakes, vulcanism and ice ages. We will then regret the destruction of industry and wastage of real energy opportunities now taking place.

Climate Fools Day will be celebrated today by organised meetings of sceptics in Westminster and Brisbane.

Brisbane: King George Square 12 noon. More info contact Tim Wells:
