Kaye sera sera

I was on the Kaye Adams show this morning, talking about Paris and what one can do about one's personal carbon footprint. Also featured was BH favourite Louise Gray, although we didn't get a chance to interact.

We touched on energy, recycling, the global warming movement and green gestures although I'm not sure Ms Adams realised I was a "bad person" until rather late in the day. It was great fun.

Audio should be available here this afternoon (climate segment was from the top of the show, with me on after about half an hour).

That is very ungrateful of Louise Gray. She was always highly commended here, for her ability to cut and paste Green Blob publicity material, with a breathtaking economy of effort.

BBC Scotland seems to be at an earlier stage of Green Syndrome than the version "south of the borderrrr", they even had Judith Curry on the radio a few years ago.

Sceptics were nowhere to be seen or heard over the last few weeks, apart from a few token Lomborg statements, and I guess now is not the time to be party-poopers or to intrude on private grief.

The other day I complained to my GP about the unbearable noise inflicted on patients in the waiting room. That noise was Radio Scotland.

I haven't listened to the segment yet, but well done for making the effort. Kay Adams is not the brightest of talking heads, two stories:

1. On a discussion about the future of the Labour Party in Scotland (a post mortem as it was the day after a serious election losses to the SNP, about 5 years ago iirc) Kaye interrupted a Labour party member guest to ask "but what are WE going to do about it". She never felt the need to correct herself - so a la Harribin another blatant exposition of BBC bias.

2. a few years ago on a radio discussion on windfarms, a contributor made the point that with a typical load factors of only 20% they were very inefficient and didn't generate much electricity. Kaye responded by saying that this was surely a reason for building even more.

So she's likely a card carrying member of the Labour party with deep green tendencies.

Both these stories are from a few years ago, because I don't listen to Radio Scotland any more.

Andrew,
You do realise that telling people that you aren't something, doesn't mean that you aren't. If anything, having to tell people that you aren't something, probably means that you're doing a very poor job of making it obvious that you aren't. I, for example, am charming ;-)

Best you can hope for in such an environment is to gain attention and make people think. So all in all well done.

Quite interesting to hear the pro coal guy quoting this morning 20+% of UK energy demand was being supplied by coal plants. Not to mention another 40+% CCGT, 18+% nuke, whilst wind contributed 1.6% and the sun isn't shinning.

Sorry, I tried to listen but found the fantasy too unreal. How can anyone seriously think that current targets will limit temp rises to 2.7C, then discuss the decremental minutiae involved with each of the 5 year plans that reduce this to 2.0 then 1.5. Do these eejits seriously think they can control the climate with this level of detail?

Listening to all the crack 'experts' talking of '1.5 degrees', '2 degrees', '2.7 degrees' and so on...oh yawn. Totally false precision and predicated on the demonstrable rank nonsense of high climate sensitivity. We've completely lost the plot as the actual 'agreement' is voluntary and will therefore achieve next to nothing.

By the way the move to a 'low carbon future' is also predicated on actually developing a viable 'low carbon' energy source (bar nuclear). Currently we have nothing worthwhile so coal and gas will rule globally for decades.

The presenter sounds nailed-on for all-things 'global warming' too. All in all very naïve stuff and China and India must be laughing their little c*cks off.

Dec 14, 2015 at 1:15 PM | Unregistered CommenterCheshireRed

There is a underlying assumption amongst almost all of the callers that co2 output can be reduced by personnel choice.

They do not seen to comprehend that the increased activity especially seen in the transport field is a result of the extraction of purchasing power.
There is therefore a need to work harder to get access to it again.

Euro green / banking policy is simply a transfer of energy from the human to conduit activities.
Just one example is the massive decline of rail freight seen in countries upon EEC and subsequently euro entry.
A consequent and wasteful increase of road freight inputs .

Banks sustain themselves by keeping prices up.
Approx 50% of the cost of goods is a result of usury.
Typically people must travel further so as to gain access to cheap goods via discount stores with extremely long supply chains (aldi ,Lidl etc)

The data is pretty conclusive in Ireland given its extreme model euro economy nature.
The recent carbon taxes on solid fuel clearly has political goals.
To destroy peasant redundancy.
Destroying the local .
It is sadly succeeding .

Unfortunately, the whole global climate debate until Nov next year will be dictated by the Republicans in the US.
Ted Cruz is clearly intelligent and he thinks he can win the debate. Clearly that involves more than just pointing out to the idiot warmists that the evidence does not support them as we sceptics have been doing since before Climategate.

And worse - for obvious reasons the climax of the Ted Cruz's climate campaign will be toward Nov 2016 at the presidential election and not the much earlier Scottish elections.

So, yes the media in Scotland are going to be be sooner or later taking more interest - but if there's some kind of "killer blow" being planned by the Republicans - there's no guarantee that it will effect us in Scotland as it may occur after the elections - and who knows we may have even more daft anti-science SNP MSPs than before.

Dec 14, 2015 at 1:51 PM | Registered CommenterMikeHaseler

There are a number of fallacies that warmists keep falling into. The ‘every little helps’ is an illustration of how little people have thought about their own emissions. We’d need to make radical changes to our lifestyle to substantially cut emissions. We’d need to accurately calculate the benefits of new, improved products eg a more efficient car vs the energy to build and dispose. We’d have to have laws guaranteeing the durability of products and people who change things for fashion and taste would have to be shot.

The other issue – thinking that governments and businesses are the bad guys is getting very boring. It all stems from the Left. They’ve perpetuated the idea that people are endlessly the victim of business, irrespective of how much business has advanced overall prosperity and irrespective of how individuals, both workers and customers are integral parts of any business. Almost any attack on business is an attack on the public. There’s an odd thought process wherein the left think that business survives at any cost, they just need to be pushed, but in reality business just folds and/or moves abroad. I could say that they’re not charities but charities aren’t run on the charity of their workers either. When the free money stops, the charity folds. The leftist argument would be nationalisation but we’ve been there, done that and we were less efficient and more expensive. Even the argument that government run industries would be cheaper because there would be no massive salaries is bogus because not only are public sector salaries equivalent to private sector wages, they benefit in countless other ways both big and small. Even the ‘vast’ profits for investors are exaggerated. Many pensions are invested in ‘greedy’ industries, but who needs a decent pension when you won't be able to buy anything, do anything or go anywhere?

I can't say what we might need to do in the future but I will never place my trust in idiots who can't see the value of where we are now.

High level blanket bog (400meters~) used to service the needs of the Catherdanial community at the extreme SW of the Iveagh peninsula.
It can only be used effectively during a good hot June , later in the year the drying is just no sufficient.

Used much less intensively today for two primary reasons.
The permanent winter community is much smaller. (Like me burning gas in the city)
Road has improved over the years making the transport of oil hearing fuelmore viable.

If local purchasing power was increased ?
Is our problem the sheer scale of the (extractive)banking system.

Also one little farmer located near the village grows spuds for the holiday market.
The locals cannot afford his product......

In 1990 coal and peat was a major element of our energy balance
In 2014 it is not.
Our emissions have remained more or less static
Transport inputs have merely replaced other inputs.

I cannot get over the mental image, of Al Gore and Co standing up and applauding the great deal [of nothing] in Paris, shiny empty head people, I should write a song.

On LouLou and that interview, I had a similar thoughts to CheshireRed. In that, why is it, they [the sheeple] think they [some climate scientists, industry, the world et bloody cetera] can somehow tweak the Earth's temperature like a thermostat 'thingy dofuss' can do on the interior walls of their houses?

And isn't that the point really, that these liars and political charlatans have so bamboozled a rather dullard public - the trick is to make people believe in it.............."yadda, yadda, by merely simply adjusting MMCO₂ levels - all will be well folks - trust me I'm a climate scientist - have you seen the size of my Nobel Prize!"

Or, was it all just a nightmare and life goes on until - end of cars days "it's all legally binding" rears its ugly head or, the LIGHTS go OUT?

Athelstan, for the most part the sheeple aren't thinking about it at all, which includes most politicians. If they were, there would be some hard and fast research on what renewables can and can't do. How much mass implementation would cost and exactly how much the public are prepared to spend. My Mum was a master at this. She spent a lot of time worrying about problems she wouldn't put into perspective but equally didn't do anything substantial to solve them. It's the worst of both worlds.

Bish also made good points about:
China constantly building new power stations - only about 1% of their energy is solar.
Most people aren't very interested in the climate issue, as surveys repeatedly show.
On an individual level, what can we do: nothing. If it makes you feel good, then fine.
The bit about recycling was quite amusing - Kaye got quite excited at the idea she might have been wasting her time washing out yoghurt pots.

In the above Kerry example the previous peasant community became dependent on the distribution of mainly Cork city tourism / distribution during the free state banking experiment.
Prices of the pint increased but so did cash flow.
During the first Euro depression of the 80s and most recent euro depression these national tourists were increasingly replaced by airborne travellers.

The energy austerity drives we witness is merely the rationing required to increase the scale of banking operations.
They have a net negative effect on the quality of life for most.
Life just becomes apparently pointlessly "faster"
The Rosetta stone for this is the % of transport relative to total TFC.

Flinging round accusations of someone being a 'conspiracy theorist' is very lazy dialogue. There are many occasions when it pays to wonder at conspiracy, Lewandowsky's lies notwithstanding.
Me, I'm happy to be seen as a sceptic and one who sees that there is good grounds for seeing a conspiracy. For instance, how come some very intelligent people (including a few who deign to offer us the wisdom of their oh soooo superior intellects) seem to think that by driving this country back into the 19th century will control the climate? We're now being told that any form of gas-fueled power/heating will have to be given up for the cause; that hugely expensive ground-heat pumps should be installed and that, with a bit more of a push on wind and solar the dream of a 2 Deg control of climate will be ours to have.

This, we and they know to be madness. John Christy at NOAA has calculated that even if the USA pumped ZERO CO2 into the atmosphere for the next 50 years the temperature change would be somewhere between 0.05 and 0.08 Deg C. Like I said, sheer madness. But that's why I think conspiracy: no-one could be so stupid as to believe this will happen. Therefore, they must have ulterior motives, or their arrogance and hubris knows no bounds.

In the meantime, it is arguable that adapting to the possibility (as if) of less than 2 Deg C rise in global temp is a far better and more cost-effective path to take than driving our shivering and dispossessed populations into climate gulags.

The "ulterior motive" has been clear for a very, very long time and I have drawn attention to it more than once.
The aim of the green lobby is to (as I call it) "unpick the Industrial Revolution". They are not interested in climate; they do not give a rat's ass about global warming; it can get 10° warmer or 10° cooler for all they care. Their intention is to prevent the use of fossil fuels at all costs and the global warming narrative has provided the perfect base on which to build their anti-civilisation, anti-development dream.
If you want to call that a conspiracy then you would probably not be far off the mark. And the main reason that the likes of the Seer of Blackford Hill mock the idea is either because they are an active part of this project or dupes. My guess is that, like so many academics, he is probably both since the modus operandi of the eco-activist is not a millimetre away from that of the Social Justice Warrior whose natural home is academia.
Whatever the science is trying to tell us, the demands of the eco-activists are built on a series of lies. This is not surprising because the first instinct of the eco-activist (as with the SJW) is to lie. Either by stating known untruths or by carefully ensuring that whatever truth is needed is carefully vetted to ensure that inconvenient truths are omitted or that words are redefined to suit the eco-narrative which will in any event itself be redefined as the outside world starts to realise that the original narrative has as many holes in it as a Swiss cheese.
So "global warming" morphed into "climate change" and "climate disruption" and then into "extreme weather".
The eco-activists do not and never have believed seriously in "global warming" as we understand the term but along with their useful idiots in the media and at the sharp end of political protest they have succeeded and will continue to succed in applying pressure to governments in a bid to persuade us to commit economic suicide.
They are hypocrites and charlatans to a man (or woman); they no more believe what they are selling than I believe in fairies.

To add further to my feeling of conspiracy, this quote from Mark Steyn's evidence to Congress re 'Data vs Dogma', where he was talking about how, for seeming dogmatic reasons, the historical temperature series were being tampered with, is surely most apt:

As a result, public opinion, which no longer trusts the Big Climate enforcers to tell them what the climate will be like in 2050, now no longer trusts them to tell them what it was like in 1950.

I looked up the definition of a conspiracy theory.

a belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for an unexplained event.

I have listened to what Andrew Montford said this morning. The nearest seems to be an accusation that China’s renewables excluding hydro are trivial. It is just political flannel to please the climate lobby, whilst at the same time getting on with the real priorities. (though they might also have strategic energy self-sufficiency objectives as well, as shown by the conversion of coal to liquids). After the Tiananmen Square massacre 25 years ago, China went flat out for economic growth. They have been phenomenally successful, with growth rates since exceeding the Asian Tigers of Japan, Taiwan and South Korea. Andrew’s main messages (from 34:10) - and I will be contradicted if I get this wrong – is that the climate reduction policies are non-binding and that all the proposed policies do not add to much on a global scale. You are quite free to live an eco-lifestyle if that is your preference, but it will not make any real difference. Even the UNFCCC experts agree that the INDCs will make little difference to global emissions.
It is a common theme that those who believe in climate also believe themselves to be greater etymologists than those who write the dictionaries. Other examples are “academic”, “sceptic”, “skeptic” and “fake sceptic”. I will happily provide references, if challenged, but believe the main message of the blog post should not be diverted in other directions, a common tactic of climate propagandists.
