The Great Global Warming Swindle - now with extra Swindle

A few months ago Channel 4 broadcast a show called The Great Global Warming Swindle which enraged many Anthropogenic Global Warming advocates with its polemical style and crude, sensationalist presentation of scientific data

which, when you think about how many advocates of Anthropogenic Global Warming go about their business, is a very funny reaction indeed

Well, some previously unseen footage filmed for TGGWS has just appeared on Google....



The guy who posted it is someone called Clifford Rutley. At the moment I don't know very much about Cliff (though I have discovered that he includes reviewing his own books on Amazon amongst his interests) but his homepage includes what appears to be a periodically updated 'Cliff Quote'. The current quote being...

You so called environmentalists are all hypocrites. This MAN MADE global warming is nothing more than a distraction from the REAL environmental issues & a creation of fiction to tax us more either directly or indirectly. What about the depleting of the rain forests, cross species DNA research, the bees dying off, mutated food experiments, toxins in our food, government and military dumping of toxic waist, mercury in our vaccines, eugenics, the millions that die in Africa because they're not allowed to industrialise and use their natural coal and oil reserves, the radioactive shells that the military uses in Iraq and Afghanistan? The problem with the MAN MADE global warming hoax is that it is nothing more than an unproven distraction.

Nice one

but what's a toxic waist when it's at home?

Doesn't the Colony Collapse Disorder relate to your next post, ... things to do in London before I fly?

Over the 10-year period as a whole, climate continues to warm and 2014 is likely to be 0.3 deg C warmer than 2004. The overall trend in warming is driven by greenhouse gas emissions but this warming effect will be broadly cancelled out over the next few years by the changing patterns of the ocean temperatures.

um, no

the last half of that film I linked to in the post features a presentation that includes a pile of data from a range of different sources which support the theory that variation in global temperatures are the product of overlapping solar cycles - the effects of which are possibly amplified by their effect on cosmic radiation and therefore levels of global cloud cover and the Earth's albedo

Of course, that's not definitive proof that solar cycles are the only driver for climate change but this line of thinking does, unlike most anthropogenic global warming (AGW) advocates, actually acknowledge and factor in the role played by solar variation and cloud formation. It is also based on hard data rather than computer models

It's also worth noting that people using AGW models predicted that British summers, including this one, would be warmer and drier - and as someone has already noted on your blog it's been pissing down here for weeks

Even George Monbiot wrote last month...

It wasn't meant to happen like this. The climate scientists told us that our winters would become wetter and our summers drier. So I can't claim that these floods were caused by climate change, or are even consistent with the models...
