Gott mit uns.

800px-WW_I_Prussian_enlisted_man's_belt_buckle_front

Literally, it means “God with us” or more colloquially, God’s on our side. It originated as a battle cry of the legions towards the end of the Roman empire, when it had become fully Christianised and the words have rippled down the centuries into various cultures, with the German version more recently appearing on the belt buckle of … Continue reading

Why would anyone believe a single word coming out of their mouth?

liar01

One of the climate alarmist’s standard responses to any criticism of the theory of global warming is that unless the person is a climate scientist themselves, the point being made is from a position of ignorance and can therefore be ignored. As with most propaganda designed to silence any opposition, there’s an element of truth … Continue reading

The Breaking Point.

Look at the eyes. Show me the best game you've got, because you're going to need it.

If you play team sports, or even just watch them, there’s very often a moment in the struggle between the opposing teams, when one of them breaks. Sometimes it’s sparked by a single incident but more usually, it’s an acceptance by the whole group that they’re going to lose. The opposition are simply too good. It’s … Continue reading

Some direct questions for the BBC that it’ll never answer.

A web of lies, deceit and betrayal.

The revelations of the last couple of weeks, have shone a bright light into some dark corners of the BBC and what’s been exposed, while very disturbing and quite frankly seamy, comes as no surprise to those of us who’ve long entertained doubts on its supposed impartiality, integrity and even its basic journalistic competence. There’s for too … Continue reading

Why hasn’t there been a real debate on climate science?

Liar! Liar!

Given that the alarming scenarios predicted by climate science are being used as the reason for advocating massive changes in society, prosperity, industrial infrastructure, lifestyles and even democracy, there’s never been a real debate over its veracity. You have alarmists on one side, who have near total control of most mediums of communication, and who refuse … Continue reading

Worried about climate change? Meh.

A climate of fear ...

Climate alarmism pushes a blinding variety of scares at the general public; Polar bears going extinct, droughts of biblical proportions, massive Noah’s ark type flooding, glaciers melting, sea levels rising, sea levels dropping, the polar ice caps melting, your Granny’s knicker elastic breaking, seas getting acidic, another looming mass extinction event, the rainforest disappearing, islands … Continue reading

Our secret weapon.

Don't breathe a word ..

There are three elements to be considered when formulating a strategy; the ultimate objective of the strategy, the resources you have available to achieve that objective and the way the resources are to be deployed to take and then hold that objective. Obviously, our objective is to destroy the political credibility of climate alarmism. Identifying … Continue reading

How environmentalism turned to the dark side.

Sometimes, life doesn't get any better.

Over the best part of the last two decades, the twin delusions that we’re destroying the planet and that we have to completely restructure civilisation to somehow save it, have taken root and gripped the popular psyche of the West. The first notion had its origins in the early seventies, when people finally recognised and began … Continue reading

Climate Alarmism and The Prat Principle.

Spot the prat. You can see from the faces of the others, they have ...

I’d like to introduce you to one of the great discoveries of my life, the Prat Principle. Before doing so, I’ll have to ensure we have a common understanding of what exactly a prat is, prior to sharing it with you, together with some related tricks and tips. Prat is one of the great words in the … Continue reading

Political fracture points and power vacuums.

Well, actually, Truman defeated Dewey ...

A political fracture point is a sudden and radical change in the political landscape. In classical times, it would be the collapse of an empire, such as the Roman Empire. In the last century, World War I resulted in the outright destruction of several, such as the German Empire, and ultimately fatal damage to others, … Continue reading

How policies get dropped and positions reversed.

Janus, who else?

Political policy changes constantly in a democracy. It does so primarily in response to the changing concerns of its electorate, because by addressing these concerns, politicians hoping to gain office naturally expect to attract votes by catering to these concerns. When the economy is prosperous and the employment rate is high, the electorate’s concerns tend … Continue reading

Happy birthday Pointman’s.

Happy Birthday Pointy's

It doesn’t seem like it, but it’s been a year since I started this blog. I started it for a number of reasons and with more than a few reservations but with some modest hopes in sight, so now seems to be an appropriate time to think about how it’s doing and the experience of being a … Continue reading

The Durban debacle awaits …

Yes, he really needs solar panels ...

Here we go again, another climate clambake attracting attendees from all over the world. They’ll be the usual assortment of politicians, government civil servants, Media, NGOs, activists and fruit loops determined to save the earth from global warming. Nothing changes. In terms of the basic political objectives, nothing much either has changed since Cancun. The developing … Continue reading

Happy birthday Climategate.

The bigger they are ...

It’s around the time of the second anniversary of the Climategate leak so it’s fitting to take stock of where we are now. Before doing that, it’s worth taking a walk down memory lane to recall how things were before it occurred. They were really different. If you were in the fight at the time, … Continue reading

Global warming and pathological science.

They said I was mad but it's alive, I tell you ...

There are many aspects to the style of science underpinning the theory of global warming that remind me of something the American scientist Irving Langmuir christened pathological science. Wiki for once is accurate and defines it as – “Pathological science is a psychological process in which a scientist, originally conforming to the scientific method, unconsciously … Continue reading

Green Myths : Polar bears going extinct, yawn …

Not another takeaway ...

Ask any young person about Polar bears and you’ll find out they know all about them. Polar bears are cuddly and harmless but they’re an endangered species. Why are they endangered then? It’s because of global warming, which is melting all the ice at the North pole and the poor Polar bears are drowning. Year … Continue reading

So, which is it; Global Warming, Climate Disruption or Climate Change?

There's a lot to be said for global warming ...

We had nearly two decades worth of propaganda telling us we were the cause of the planet warming up and unless we stopped emitting carbon, we were all going to burn up in the looming thermogeddon. This scare was branded Global Warming and gradually entered the popular consciousness. People naturally got a bit concerned about … Continue reading

I’m not a scientist but …

It was always that simple.

For a number of reasons, having “made my bones” in permanent employment, the rest of my career would be termed freelance. I deliver measured amounts of expertise for clients of my choosing in the areas in which I know I operate well. The point is, you have to step out of your comfort zone and … Continue reading

The Al Gore Climate Reality Event : A call to arms.


There’s an interesting proposal being made at Anthony Watt’s site WUWT to fight the upcoming Al Gore Climate Reality Event scheduled for Sept. 14th 2011. In essence, it suggests setting up a central resource which will contain quotes by global warming high priests. What’s being called for is your participation in digging out appropriate quotes with … Continue reading

The power of dreams and the power of nightmares.

He's behind you ...

There are patterns in politics which are hardy perennials. They’ve been there for as long as politics has been around, which is to say forever. Politicians need you to vote for them and the way they do this is to sell you something. The thing they sell you of course is a promise but to … Continue reading
