Green Thoughts : Climate Change
The IPCC On the Run at Last

"For the last three years, satellite-measured average global temperature has been declining. Given the occurrence also of record low winter temperatures and massive snowfalls across both hemispheres this year, IPCC members have now entered panic mode, the whites of their eyes being clearly visible as they seek to defend their now unsustainable hypothesis of dangerous, human-caused global warming."

So says Professor Bob Carter in a recent lecture in New Zealand.

We are supposed to be in the information age with sophisticated scientific capability yet our politicians insist on spending billions of our hard earned tax dollars in chasing the greeny goal of sustainability and stopping global warming.

Are there no politicians out there who can take a lead in this matter and stop this waste of Kiwi tax money. Our economy is poised at the top of a cliff at the moment and this global warming chimera may well be the last push.

As Albert Einstein said, "Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe."

I Was On the Global Warming Gravy Train.

A global warming enthusiast changes his mind. Why?

Green Thoughts : Climate Change
The Nuclear Option.

The Labour continues to follow a flawed strategy that will not deliver anything useful and will cost New Zealanders up to $2,000,000,000 per annum.

A clear exposition.

The Global Warming Myth

The Greens looked foolish over Global Cooling 20 years ago. They will look foolish over Global Warming in 20 year's time. This is why they are covering themselves by now calling it Climate Change.

How can you go wrong predicting Climate Change?

You have all seen David Bellamy on TV. Read what he has to say:

What hope for carbon-trading schemes?

In between the Ice Ages we obviously have periods of warming. This occurs over 10s of thousands of years and is naturally difficult to measure accurately over a few decades. We will have many periods of warming and cooling in between the major Ice Age effects.

All the same it obviously is a "good thing" to keep our planet clean and if carbon trading will help this then this is also a "good thing".

Our problem is that this "good thing" is scheduled to cost New Zealand $1,500,000,000 at last count and our contribution to world cleanliness will be so small as to be unmeasurable - especially when compared with China, India and other developing countries.

Will our moral leadership help? Or will the system be rorted by opportunistic businesses? Time will tell.

The Myth of the Tree Shortage

An American has a look at their Southern forests and comes to some interesting conclusions. Perhaps we should apply some of this type of thinking in New Zealand and make the most of our natural advantages. Isn't making the most of our comparative advantage the path to maximizing our growth rate?

The Greenies are good at spreading alarm and panic about deforestation so that they can have some purpose in life. This article shows clearly the benefits of private forest ownership in the USA.

Virides delendi sunt.

Creating Wealth and Keeping it

The New book by Phil Scott, President of the Foundation for Economic Growth.

"This book is good, damn good and no statistics!" Lindsay Gordon, MA, MSC, PHD.

Every serious economics student should have a copy and read this ground-breaking foundation of clear economic thinking. Real Economics explains how human actions shape our world and why so much seems to be going wrong for Western economies. This book will bring enlightenment for the general reader who will see why a few very wealthy are becoming exceedingly rich and the middle classes are on the road to serfdom.
