Global Cooling

Michael Shrimpton helps expose a hoax!

Plenty to write about this week, but as America freezes I thought it an opportune time to return to the global warming hoax. It’s the biggest and most expensive scientific hoax in history and it’s high time it was knocked on the head. Only the Western democracies are buying into this nonsense – the Chinese and German governments know full well that human CO2 emissions are not materially affecting the climate. Decarbonizing our economies however is materially affecting our prosperity and costing jobs. Having been wrongfully accused of a hoax myself I must confess that I’m rather enjoying the Bad Guys’ discomfiture as temperatures plummet! 

As I commented in Spyhunter decarbonizing our economies makes about as much sense as decarbonizing ourselves. Britain’s absurd Climate Change Act is said to be costing the country £18 billion a year, enough to rebuild the Royal Navy. British households and businesses are paying far too much for their energy. Energy economics across the pond are different, but I have no doubt that inappropriate wind and solar power schemes are driving up the cost of your energy.

Why do energy costs matter?

In the UK, and I suspect in the US, artificially boosted energy prices are materially affecting disposable incomes. Poorer households suffer the most. In the case of older people, cutting back on household heating can be dangerous. This isn’t just about money, it’s about lives as well.

It’s not just households and Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises which are affected. Energy costs are a big chunk of the cost of making steel and aluminum. (I know you guys spell that differently!) This not only gives Chinese steelmakers a competitive advantage, it drives up the cost of British and American cars and white goods.

Since the EU has bought into the Anthropogenic Global Warming Hypothesis (AGWH) German, French, Italian and Spanish carmakers are also suffering, not that we care too much about them. The effect of current policy is a huge transfer of production and wealth from the West to the East.

Since the covert German DVD backs the ChiComs (Mao was a German asset, a fact which seems to have escaped the eponymous Senator Flake) getting rational policies in place is not going to be easy. President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement has been reversed by the State Department, which quietly caved in to UN demands to treat the agreement as having been ratified. I don’t recall the Senate approving it, do you?

Senior figures in the British government and the Cabinet Office are being blackmailed by the DVD’s London operation, GO2. Theresa May is powerless to change British policy, one reason she has rightly been snubbed by President Trump. She’s not the sharpest knife in the box, no offense intended, and seems to have bought into AGWH in any event. Most of the Cabinet are house-trained and equally incapable of independent thought, as demonstrated by their attitude to the EU.

We are imposing huge burdens on our economies and our most vulnerable people, all for nothing. AGWH has been the most successful propaganda campaign in history, a classic example of our community partner Dr Goebbels’s Big Lie concept.

As I explain in Spyhunter, AGWH was invented by a quack Swedish chemist called Svante Arrhenius (1859-1927)(below), who was so bad they gave him a Nobel Prize. Dynamite his hypothesis wasn’t. Since Dr Arrhenius was responsible for more Wehrmacht casualties than any other chemist in history, perhaps they should have given him the Nobel Peace Prize! Since he hadn’t bombed Cambodia he probably didn’t qualify, however.


How did a 19th century Swedish chemist help inflict large casualties on the Wehrmacht in World War II? Easy. Our community partners the OKW (German High Command) bought into his silly hypothesis and decided it was now OK to invade Russia. Cue large numbers of German troops without enough winter woollies having their b……s frozen off outside Moscow in 1941. They probably felt like the people in Duluth are feeling right now, i.e. a bit chilly and a bit p…..d off.

The world is cooling, not warming

I don’t think too many readers in Duluth are going to have a problem with this. The planet is cooling down, not warming up. Since the biggest influence on our climate is the Sun and we are currently in a cycle of reduced solar activity this is not particularly surprising. For the benefit of any Congressmen or Senators reading this, the Sun is that big orange thing in the sky. It’s quite hot.

As my late friend Sir Patrick Moore, the astronomer, predicted, the planet entered a cooling phase around the turn of the century, having been warming since about 1975. Those of us who were around in the early 70s can recall scare stories about a ‘new ice age’. We have probably entered what’s called a Maunder Minimum, i.e. the cooling phase may last about twice as long as usual.

The UN has been distorting temperature and sea-level readings for years. What you get is not what the thermometers see. In order to fit the data to the hypothesis (serious scientists do it the other way round) the UN has been quietly cooking the books, as it were. They call it ‘adjusting the data’. I call it fraud.

Some of the temperature data needs to be adjusted, alright: downwards. As the footprint of Western cities has expanded met data-gathering stations in the countryside have been surrounded by development. Cities can be up to 1.5o C warmer than the surrounding countryside. A lot of what the UN is measuring is increased urbanization, not increased temperatures.

A lot of sea-level monitoring is done on gently rising landmasses, i.e. the data is a measurement of rising land, not falling seas. I suspect there’s also a problem with the CO2 data – the main measuring station on which the UN relies is sited in volcanic Hawaii. Great choice, guys.

The problems with AGWH

AGWH supporters, not least in the MSM, have a terrible habit of not engaging with their opponents’ arguments, i.e. they do not believe in the scientific method. They simply talk past us.

Again as I explained in Spyhunter the main problems with AGWH are fourfold:

(1)    CO2 follows temperature rises, not the other way round, with a lag of about 750 years. Current CO2 levels are tracking the Medieval Warm Period.

(2)    CO2 is a trace gas in the atmosphere, responsible for about 5% of the Greenhouse Effect.

(3)     Humankind is only responsible for about 3.3% of CO2 emissions and

(4)     Recent planetary warming and cooling cycles tracked solar activity, i.e. solar output is the most important factor affecting the climate.

This explains why we had global warming phases long before we had SUVs. At most humanity is responsible for about one thirtieth of one twentieth of the Greenhouse Effect, i.e. a fraction of one percent, i.e. barely enough to boil a kettle.

CO2 BTW is a colorless, odorless gas. For some reason the BBC (I daresay CNN and CBS are the same) always have background images of factory chimneys belching out smoke when they talk about climate change. If you can see it, it’s not CO2 guys. Once CO2 concentrations rise above 15% (it’s measured in the atmosphere in parts per million for a reason) you start to lose consciousness. I wonder how many global warmists have died in sealed environments with rising CO2, thinking that because there was no smoke or vapor there wasn’t a problem.

Water vapor and droplets are the largest contributors to the Greenhouse Effect, which, like CO2, is essential to life on Earth.

There isn’t space in this column to delve more deeply into the arguments. There are excellent objective sources out there, including the website   https://wattsupwiththat.com.  My friend Christopher Booker has also written a lot of sense about climate change in the Sunday Telegraph. This is unusual, since the paper’s current owners, the Barclay brothers, who let us say probably prefer sausage to roast beef for their Sunday lunch, don’t encourage common sense.

I should explain that Christopher is one of only two intelligent journalists in the UK, hence the sustained rationality of his weekly column, except about the EU single market, where my old friend has gone a bit off-message, no offense intended! (I’m sending him a copy of this column.)

The memo

I gather that there’s an interesting memo circulating in Washington! It seems to giving the Democrats a fit of the screaming heebie-jeebies, which is encouraging.

More to come on this in future columns, I suspect, but the broad story, reported first on VT, is that the FBI colluded with the Clinton campaign and involved themselves in illegal wiretaps on the Trump campaign. Since the FBI asked the CIA to get GCHQ to monitor Trump campaign communications this is not too surprising.

There was foreign interference in the 2016 campaign, alright: German interference. The FBI is largely controlled from Frankfurt by the Correa/COREA Group (I wish they’d set up a website so that we could clear up the confusion about their name!). Germany backed Hillary Clinton.

Sadly, there are few if any intelligence-literate Members of Congress. The overwhelming majority have never heard of the DVD or the Correa/COREA Group. The eponymous Senator Flake is not alone in his ignorance. It’s about time that a copy of Spyhunter was deposited in the Library of Congress.

One of my greatest faults, as Christopher Booker well knows, is an excessive tendency to hide my lights under a bushel. I’m working on it, though! Although it goes against the grain to say it, Spyhunter is a ground-breaking intelligence text, which reveals a lot of dark secrets. It’s about time Congressmen and women and Senators started to read it. Until they do we’re going to keep hearing from Senators who think that Mao Tse-Tung was a communist. (I suppose that the next thing Senator Flake will be saying is that Marx was a Marxist!)

The Vegas mass-shooting

I have an interesting development to report. Seems like a couple of top Saudis were in town that night, one in the Tropicana and one in the Mandalay Bay. It is being reported elsewhere that one of the Saudis was keen to take pot-shots at the other and that the mass-shooting was a diversion.

At this time I am not able to confirm these reports, but they have the ring of truth about them. One place you won’t be getting the truth from is the FBI. The Bureau is about suppressing the truth, not discovering it. The fact that they are still clinging to the single-shooter theory says it all.

The sad thing is that the Mandalay Bay insurers, who ought to know better, have fallen for the single-shooter nonsense. I wouldn’t want to place a policy with them! I haven’t had a call from a single insurer or a single lawyer acting for relatives of the victims. Naivety can be charming, especially in children, but it’s a bit worrying in grown-ups. It’s probably a worry also for parents as their children grow older.

Lawyers are particularly vulnerable to ignorance and conceit, but I had expected more from the insurers. Watch this space.

This Week’s Movie Review: Darkest Hour

(2017, dir. Joe Wright)

Released to theaters in the UK last week, this is an excellent movie. Above all, for the first time in years, we have a movie which is fair to Sir Winston Churchill. I had the privilege of knowing the great man’s grandson, also an MP, and I suspect that he would have approved.

The producer and scriptwriters are fair enough to fact-check the myth that Churchill was an alcoholic. Just a bottle of champagne for breakfast, another for lunch and a few glasses of brandy in the evening. Hardly what a barrister, even a suspended one, would call an alcoholic!

Gary Oldman, as the lead, turns in one of the finest performances in living memory. It is a very human portrayal of a great human being. You can scarcely believe that it’s Gary Oldman, which is surely one of the points of acting. He has to win the Oscar! If he doesn’t, it will be political – I really can’t see anyone else turning in a better performance this year.

The plot takes a few liberties with history, but it’s a movie, not a documentary. There are a few factual errors – the majority of the evacuees from Dunkirk were brought off in destroyers, e.g., and the Royal Navy paid a fearful price in ships and men. I knew someone who owned one of the Little Ships of Dunkirk (the late, great Raymond Baxter) and he was always keen to emphasise the Navy’s role. The movie is broadly true to life, however.

What it doesn’t do is reveal the intelligence background to May 1940. Chamberlain and Halifax weren’t working for the home team. It’s still a great movie, however, and well worth watching.

  1. The science is not simple; the Carbon cycle was noted before being bastardized by bankers. A rise in temperature causes increased weathering of Limestone. Decreases in temperature cause increased deposition of Limestone and Dolomite. 400 ppm CO2 hasn’t nearly the effect of water in the atmosphere. without the green-house effect, all life would be stressed and possibly extinct. The quote science of global warming is Neo-Con bull-shit. And don’t try to bull-shit a bull-shitter.

  2. So nice to find you in your old slot at the weekend where I can get my fix on English irony and point of view. Granted you can usually be spotted in ‘What’s Hot’ by the brief and pithy headline; unlike some we won’t mention.
    You have referred to the late Sir Patrick Moore a couple of times. My late husband knew him and Sir Patrick came to his Memorial Service. Now, I don’t think that you get into the ‘Alien Agenda’ all that much; there is a lot going on the the present. You may know there was a small volume by his Mother Gertrude Moore entitled ‘Mrs. Moore in Space’; I have a copy somewhere and must go find. I think the alternative title was, ‘Little green men’.

  3. I congratulate Mr. Shrimpton for his insight. Yes, the earth is going into a cooling cycle which all the real scientist already know.

    A little correction about the sun, it “was” yellow in the old days. Now, when the sky is not clouded by massive chemtrails, look carefully at our sun. You will notice that it is more white then yellow now and it is a liitle bigger.

    No one should be afraid, because this is normal and has happened many time over in our history.

    The real explanation for this effect would cost much too much place, but to make it easy: If you thought good old Newton had it right, you might have to think again, because this isn’t true and those in high places know it also. Galbraith, the real biographer of Newton, has characterized him correctly as a man who most of the time he was deeply involved in his mystics, looking for a special stone. Maybe you know which one I mean. But the Royal Society was not interested in what he really did, and with him many others.

    I also want to add a very shameful fact, which has to do with Germany. The scientific guru for the current Pope is sadly one of the worst woul be scientists one can imagine, Mr. Schellnhuber. This guy is a liar and he is so stupid and ignorant as most of his Potsdam institute near Berlin.

  4. IMO, the climate change/global warming agenda is about creating an artificial energy shortage to increase the cost and hammer those who are leaving too big of a “carbon footprint” with a heavy carbon tax. I wouldn’t doubt that they plan on controlling our energy consumption via tho f’n “smart meters”. Much of the information and statistics surrounding climate change has been falsified. I admit, surely there are things we can do better when it comes to taking care of our planet, but many credible scientists have suggested that man’s contribution to carbon dioxide levels is relatively insignificant. More than 30,000 scientists have signed a petition denying the rhetoric proposed by global warming/climate change activists.

  5. Why is it that the same people that told us about 19 muslim on 911, are on the band wagon for climate change?

    I do believe in Climate Change, ‘Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter.’

  6. Yea, and the cow farts didn’t matter when millions of buffalo roamed the plains, Buffalo farts have to be bigger than cow farts. Elephant farts and water buffalo farts are also bigger than cow farts. The same scientists that tell us cars are the problem are taught by the same teachers as the ones who tell us Oil is great and we don’t need trees or animals.

  7. The weather have changed during last years, we wonder sometimes. But got used to. This New year was warm. +12 Celsius on the 1st January. I mean Krasnodar Region above the Black sea. Though several years ago we had -32C. Now i work at Transneft oil terminal near St.Petersburgh, we have -11C. Frankly, the better temperature would be -20/25C. It would be more comfortable. When we work above polar circle, we have -40C. For us this temperature is not critical. Well, it is normal for Russia. 2/3 of the country is placed in the area of eternal frozen lands. But to see how the trees start to bloom in winter- seems not normal for our country.

  8. Mr. Shrimpton is correct that the Senate has NOT agreed to the Paris Agreement treaty, even though the UN clearly calls it a treaty. The US Constitution stipulates that 2/3 of the Senate must agree to a treaty. 2/3 of the Senate is hard to get, unless Senators have been the ones doing the negotiating to begin with. So, increasingly, US admins don’t even bother asking the Senate. They have been using Executive Agreements instead of treaties. But a rose by any other name is still a rose. Below is what the Senate has to say about its role in Treaties, and how Exec. Agreements have been proliferating.

    • The Rio treaty on climate change (formally named The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) of May 9, 1992, was clearly seen as a treaty by the US. So how come Rio was sent to the Senate, but Paris has NOT been? Bush 41 sent Rio to the US Senate for approval on Sept 8, 1992, and it moved rapidly. The Committee on Foreign Relations approved and reported on Oct 1. And on Oct 7, 1992, the Senate voted in favor of the “Resolution of advice and consent to ratification”. This Senate vote in favor of Rio occurred 1 month before the Bush 41/Bill Clinton Presidential election of Nov 1992, and I suspect they really only cared about the election at that point. Here are the action dates in the Senate regarding the Rio treaty. https://www.congress.gov/treaty-document/102nd-congress/38

    • Then there is the Kyoto Protocol of 1997, an international treaty which extends the Rio 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The United States signed, but did NOT ratify. It wasn’t sent to the Senate, either. Canada, on the other hand, did sign and ratify Kyoto, but then had a change of heart in 2011 and became the only country to pull out of Kyoto, in 2012. Obama admin took a different tack with the Paris treaty, somehow committing the US to it at the G20 in Hangzhou, on Sept 3, 2016. Again, you may notice that this action was taken just before a Presidential election. But in this case, the President was not running and he had “nothing to lose” by unilateral action.

    • Relax, Switzerland is not alone; France is in the boat, too. Basel is “conveniently located” where the Swiss, French and German borders meet. Convenient for the Bank for International Settlements, that is. France and Germany are also joined at the hip, with France the junior partner, ever since the Élysée Treaty, signed by De Gaulle and Adenauer on January 22, 1963. What’s interesting is that the German wording of the treaty is different from the French wording of the treaty. Both governments needed to lie to their own people and to the world, about what this “treaty of friendship” really meant. What it means is that France can’t do anything in world affairs, unless Germany agrees first.

  9. I live in the North East US and have done snow removal for decades. This year we had an unusual cold snap early, but now it is unusually warm and is projected to remain well above average temperatures through February. Our snowfall has been normal or slightly below normal. But to look at the North East US is stupid. We should be looking at ice and the arctic. Look at Russia. As I have said before, in certain engineering circles, geo-engineering is a forgone conclusion. It is classified. It is interesting to me that anyone would focus on a single year or even a few recent years. The data that needs study is sudden and unusual temperature corrections by weather predictors. In other words, if they predict 32 degrees two days ahead, and it ends up being 12, then something happened. Consolidate the data across the country. 3 day predictions should be very accurate.

    • The cold snap, just before the end of the financial year, and amidst highest NG prices, and surging Wall Street, brought many smiles to oil and gas industry finance types. It got millions and millions of furnaces whirring. We almost bought gas from Russia, apparently the ship headed from London to Boston loaded with LNG turned around… I guess the Brits even tried to hide the origin,.. Imagine the fervor one could create, Buying Gas from the Russians !!!!! Why we would have to allow fracking NYS to prevent that and obey the sanctions… see where it’s going.?

    • No, what I am saying is the sanctions force us to harvest our own gas, but in particular from a place Nobody wants to frack except the very greediest ones. Upstate NY is rich in gas, but also full of water and pristine waterways, fracking would be a disaster but the ones who want to doit don’t care,…Trump, Pegula, Collins

  10. Brian Cox is wrong about quite a few things. He is proof of the forbidden nature of particular knowledge in academia. That said, I follow your method and have worked outdoors all my life. Deforestation, damming rivers, loss of soil, and depletion of soil, extracting fluids in the ground and replacing them with other fluids, overfishing, wildlife extinction by loss of habitat, use of pesticides, genetic alteration of species, monoculture, weather manipulation by mechanical means, and widespread use of disinformation by oil companies, improper disposal of toxic waste, transporting of invasive species from continent to continent, and overall reckless domination of nature and destruction of entire ecosystems is readily apparent. I don’t need CO2. There must have been something, to cause the UN to agree on weather weapon treaty, in 1976. It would not be based on speculation.

  11. “Once CO2 concentrations rise above 15% [] you start to lose consciousness.”

    Try 4% as the lethal limit for extended exposure – ask any submariner. 0.2% or less is ideal for confined space entry.

  12. Seems you are not so firm w georagphy or missed some lessons. “Mao was a german assett”, Switzerland is not germany even if a part may speak german.
