Well known fruitcake Prince Charles has just come up with this:-

Was the Syrian civil war partly caused by climate change? Prince Charles, for one, seems to think so. “There is very good evidence indeed that one of the major reasons for this horror in Syria was a drought that lasted for about five or six years,” he told Sky News, adding that climate change is having a “huge impact” on conflict and terrorism.

Yes TT, Prince Charles is a fruitcake sometimes.
But even if not right now, in the future, the rate of climate change will be a factor in civil unrest, revolution and mass uncontrolled migration if many predictions come close to being realised.
Do you deny climate change ? I tend to be a believer.

Climate change is driven by the sun not by people.  Pollution is a human attribute.
Ten thousand years ago the earth was covered in an ice sheet.  There were few humans living at the time, no industrial revolution, no cars etc.  Even Mars for example has a climate that changes, but as far as I know no beings living there to drive it.

Yup there was a period a few centuries ago when the sunspots disappeared from the sun, called the Maunder Minimum. During the Maunder Minimum the Thames froze over and people were able to hold markets there.  Just at the moment we seem to be heading into another Maunder Minimum.  Basically the climate of the earth has been changing for millions of years and will continue to do so.  1.5C or 2C? Cobblers.

World leaders have hailed the 11th-hour climate deal reached in Paris on Saturday, claiming it provides the “best chance we have” of saving the planet from catastrophic climate change.

Are Cows Climate Killers?

What remains undisputed is that animal husbandry does generate harmful emissions.

Firstly, the animals themselves release emissions — cows, for example, produce methane gas in the digestion process. In addition, the entire industry contributes to the greenhouse gas effect, from the fertilizer on the fields to the transport of feed for the animals and the use of milking machines.

Hat tip to Guido for this:-



Guido has unearthed a gem from the FT’s archive. Back in 2013 Peter Wadhams told the FT that Arctic sea ice would disappear in the summer of 2016 Wadhams, who is head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group at Cambridge, claimed that we would see “the Arctic death spiral”, going on to state:

““It could even be this year or next year but not later than 2015 there won’t be any ice in the Arctic in the summer”.
Unfortunately for Peter, who describes himself as the leading authority on the Arctic sea ice, it didn’t disappear last summer, and is in fact in significantly better shape than when he made the prediction back in 2012. Last year the minimum Arctic sea ice extent was 4.41 million square kilometres, compared to 3.39 million square kilometres in 2012. How inconvenient…

Peter of course predicted in The Guardian that the collapse in sea ice would trigger a significant increase in global warming:

“As the sea ice retreats in summer the ocean warms up (to 7C in 2011) and this warms the seabed too. The continental shelves of the Arctic are composed of offshore permafrost, frozen sediment left over from the last ice age. As the water warms the permafrost melts and releases huge quantities of trapped methane, a very powerful greenhouse gas so this will give a big boost to global warming.”
Again such predictions were wide of the mark, with no such vast increases having occurred in global warming since. Yet again the science gets in the way of Wadham’s overblown predictions…

This isn’t the first time the Cambridge professor has made a particularly outlandish statement however, having previously claimed that three climate change scientists studying the ice caps were assassinated to prevent the their explosive research being revealed. Keep drinking the kool-aid professor. Maybe next year…

Climate change is spawning injustice, racism, intolerance and wars, according to author and political activist Naomi Klein.

Earth on track for hottest year ever as warming speeds up

The earth is on track for its hottest year on record and warming at a faster rate than expected, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) said on Thursday.

Temperatures recorded mainly in the northern hemisphere in the first six months of the year, coupled with an early and fast Arctic sea ice melt and "new highs" in heat-trapping carbon dioxide levels, point to quickening climate change, it said.

June marked the 14th straight month of record heat, the United Nations agency said. It called for speedy implementation of a global pact reached in Paris last December to limit climate change by shifting from fossil fuels to green energy by 2100.

"What we’ve seen so far for the first six months of 2016 is really quite alarming," David Carlson, director of the WMO’s Climate Research Program, told a news briefing.

"This year suggests that the planet can warm up faster than we expected in a much shorter time... We don’t have as much time as we thought."

The average temperature in the first six months of 2016 was ...

It was 47 yesterday in Riyadh due to hot winds from the north.  Nothing to get alarmed about, the wind direction will change.
