Refugees rioting while UN playing & plying climate number games

Readers may recall that in June 2013 I had stumbled across a “survey” described as: United Nations Development Program (UNDP) announced an “innovative initiative” in which participants from around the world are invited to vote on what the priorities should be in a post-2015 world Action taken on climate change was at the very bottom…

The windmills of my mind

There are some days, as I peruse the net, when it occurs to me that others must have been trans-versing the windmills of my mind! Yesterday – on the heels of the Pope’s pronouncements – just happened to be one of those days. As I’ve been assiduously assessing the current validity of snippets I’ve gathered…

CBC hypes – again: Of models, memes and mythical melts

The CBC, Canada’s so-called “national” (i.e. taxpayer-funded) broadcaster is not exactly known for impartial and/or honest reporting on the climate front. I noticed an article, yesterday, in which the text is somewhat at odds with that of the University of British Columbia (UBC)’s Media Release, on which the article was supposedly (well, at least partially)…

CBC disables my content!

Yet another in the sorry saga of my attempts to post a comment on a post I found on the website of Canada’s “National Broadcaster”. The rulers of which seem to be copy cats of those found at the notoriously censorious BBC.

UN enters US$4.5 trillion twilight zone

By way of introduction, just in case you missed it, there are at least two new kids on the new, improved, ever-growing UNEP (United Nations Environment Program) block (or maze to be more precise), The first (which I wrote about here) is called “United Nations Environment Assembly of the United Nations Environment Programme” or UNEA,…

Old-hand Alcamo picked to rescue “tinkerbell” Figueres?

As readers of this blog are probably aware, I do not have much respect or admiration for the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and its ever-growing maze of offspring – which includes the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which feeds its so-called “science” to Christiana <tinkerbell> Figueres’ current bailiwick, the “send us your billions…

Something missing in the “critiques” of Bengtsson’s choice

A few weeks ago, I (amongst others) had highlighted the words of the very respected Swedish meteorologist and climate scientist, Professor Lennart Bengtsson who had chosen to join the U.K.’s Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF): I think the climate community shall be more critical and spend more time to understand what they are doing instead…

IPCC WG III on CO2 “equivalents” … and confusion

So, while Stephan <even when I’m wrong, I’m right> Lewandowsky continues to defend his indefensible Recursive Fury against Frontiers’ retraction – aided and abetted by his dutiful little gophers (aka Dana Nuccitelli and John Cook) – thereby planting himself (and his over-inflated ego) firmly in the ranks of those whose signature anthem should be “Mediocrity…

NEWSFLASH: “Climate change is not stopping”, says WMO chief

Since 2004, Michel Jarraud has served as the Secretary-General (i.e. head honcho) of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). This UN organization is one of two “parents” of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The other “parent”, as readers of this blog will no doubt recall, is the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), promulgator of…
