Newsletter No. 15 From The NZ Climate Realists Against The ETS

Hello again Climate Realists,

Activists, Neil & Esther Henderson

As parts of our country dry out further and further it seems ironic that our farmers are being hammered from all sides- the markets, the government and the elements as well.
We trust that each of you who are in the drought-affected areas are managing to cope somehow. Our commiserations!
Once again there are more than enough newsworthy climate-related items to fill a newsletter-
happy reading…….
I will also forward two TWTW emails after this one- too much to cut and paste, but all of it well worth a look.
Remember to keep those bumper sticker orders flowing in- we’ve been sending stickers and pamphlets all over the country- great stuff!
Esther
John Boscawen has been very busy this past week; along with Rodney Hide he has addressed a number of gatherings.
We have heard some excellent reports and strongly encourage you to go and hear him when he comes to a venue near you.

Last meeting for this current round:

Monday 3 May – Mellow Manor, Hamilton/Cambridge Highway, Tamahere, 7.30pm

For more information call Karen Bridgman on 09 531 5531

Hi Esther,
Last night, I went to hear Rodney Hide and John Boscawen at Dunsandel. I must say, I was very impressed not only at the drive and commitment of these gentlemen, but of their level of knowledge about this most important issue. They are very clued in not only to the fraud, but also to the underlying agenda, to wit, total global control. I went in prepared to argue against making our adoption of an ETS contingent on Australia doing the same, but I understand the strategy now. Rodney believes that no other nation will adopt an ETS now that the fraud has been exposed and that may well be the case. Seeing that our MP’s will not brook an honest debate over the issue, this is probably our best shot for John Key not to lose political capital if he agrees to shelve the ETS for the time being. I’m wondering if Rodney would agree to go on the Alex Jones program, or something similar. Not only would this bring our fight to an international audience, but Alex could bring Rodney fully up to speed on the “big picture.” The NWO crowd may well be watching what we in New Zealand do, and if we allow the ETS to stand, the same may be forced on others….
Mike

Last night I attended the public meeting in Dunsandal with John Boscawen and Rodney Hyde.
Both gave excellent summaries of the situation regarding ETS and climate change.
The one thing that stood out to me was their comments regarding lobbying MPs (the Prime Minister in particular).  I had always thought that emailing an MP would be a waste of time – that the view of an individual would be ignored.
Rodney made the point that this is not the case at all – he made this point quite strongly.  If an MP receives tens of emails on a particular topic they will pay attention, if they receive hundreds they will really pay attention.
I suggest that we try and get as many people as possible to email the Prime Minister and their local MP lobbying them to desist with, or delay the implementation of the ETS.
Regards
Chris

I am just back from the Grey Power Associations Annual General Meeting and Conference held in Christchurch from the 11 to the 14 April. Yesterday morning Mr John Boscowan addressed us and told the Conference delegates just what an impact the E.T.S will have on all our lives. Many of the delegates had no idea of the personal cost to every household in New Zealand this tax will have. I was amazed at the lack of understanding.
Mr Boscowan (an Act member) spelt the situtation out loud and clear.
I was impressed by his presentation and the sincerity with which he put his opinion across. He has offered to talk to groups around the country.
A number of delegates at the meeting will be inviting him to address their Grey Power Members after hearing his address.
He mentioned that Australia had withdrawn and some European countries. He questioned why New Zealand had to be the first country in the world to impose such a tax ? ???
yours truly,
Jean

Nick Smith 2005- can you believe it?
………The worst aspect of the carbon tax is that it will not make one iota of difference to New Zealand’s emissions.  We know from previous occasions when Labour raised the petrol tax that 6c per litre extra will not reduce consumption.  Even Treasury’s briefing papers to the incoming Government conceded it would have a negligible effect. The only conclusion is that the carbon tax actually has nothing to do with Kyoto or climate change but is just an excuse for Dr Cullen to get his fingers deeper into the pockets of New Zealanders……….

GOOD NEWS FOR POLAR BEARS
The Kiwi Party- Press release- 15 April 2010
According to an article in London’s Daily Mail newspaper this month, “the amount of sea ice covering the Arctic dramatically increased last month, reaching levels not seen at this time of year for nearly a decade.
The unusual trend last month is revealed in figures published by the U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Centre in Colorado.
Returning ice – after years of declining cover – has astonished climate scientists who blamed unusually cold weather over the Bering Sea.
Researchers said they recorded the most ice in March since 2001 – and that the cover is approaching long-term average levels for the first time in ten years.”

Kiwi Party leader Larry Baldock welcomed the latest findings but wonders why we have not seen fresh photos on the evening news of this new wide expanse of ice?

“This new ice cover may still be too thin to completely finish off the global warming alarmists, but if our media are committed to reporting the truth, we should at the very least see an end to the repetitive showing of footage of polar bears floating on little blocks of ice,” said Mr Baldock.

The Kiwi Party believes the Government should be postponing the introduction of the ETS. Government policy should be based upon the actual Global Average Temperature record which has been showing a clear cooling trend over the past decade, rather than the increasingly discredited theory of man made global warming.

“Unfortunately, knowing the bias that has existed in the media on the subject of anthropogenic climate change, we will probably have to see ice-skating on Lake Taupo at Christmas before they update their pictures,” he said.

Larry Baldock is currently travelling New Zealand collecting signatures for the Campaign4Democracy petition.
“Should Parliament be required to pass legislation that implements the majority result of a citizens initiated referendum where that result supports a law change?”

Businesses unsure about ETS

Business support for the Emissions Trading Scheme has slumped ahead of its July 1 introduction, and many are in the dark over their eligibility for carbon credits, a new survey shows.

The online survey, conducted by the Employers and Manufacturers Association (EMA), found 86 percent of businesses did not support implantation of the scheme before comparable schemes were adopted by New Zealand’s trading partners.

It also found 90 percent of businesses did not know if they were eligible for carbon credits – a key provision in the scheme.

Of the 612 businesses surveyed, 44 percent said the scheme would have a serious or extremely serious impact on them, while 48 percent said the scheme would be an issue to manage, though not serious.

Half the respondents said they wanted New Zealand to adopt climate change measures at the same pace as trading partners, while 38 percent supported late adoption and 11 percent early adoption.

EMA chief executive Alasdair Thompson said support for the scheme had slumped since a similar survey in October.

The previous survey found 53 percent of businesses thought a 10 to 20 percent reduction in carbon emissions by 2020 would not be achievable, compared with 65 percent now.

The number that thought the target was achievable dropped from 31 to 23 percent, while those that thought it was very achievable fell from 5 to 2 percent.

The results showed businesses did not support New Zealand leading the world with climate change measures, Mr Thompson said.

“No other country is adopting an ‘all sectors, all gases’ approach to reducing climate gas emissions. The only other scheme – in the EU – will cover just four per cent of output. Ours will cover 100 per cent of output.”

IPCC report card
United Nations countries belong to an organization called the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which publishes a report every six years. Often referred to as the “climate bible” these reports are relied on by governments around the world.
The chairman of the IPCC has repeatedly said the report relies solely on peer-reviewed literature to support its findings. He has said research that hasn’t appeared in peer-reviewed journals should be thrown “into the dustbin” (see the last line of this newspaper article). But our audit has discovered almost 5,600 non-peer-reviewed references in this report.

‘Missing’ heat may affect future climate change
Current observational tools cannot account for roughly half of the heat that is believed to have built up on Earth in recent years, according to a “Perspectives” article in this week’s issue of the journal Science.

Scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) in Boulder, Colo., warn that satellite sensors, ocean floats, and other instruments are inadequate to track this “missing” heat, which may be building up in the deep oceans or elsewhere in the climate system.

Northern Europeans wishing for a warmer globe
They’ve just learned that they could be headed into a mini-iceage thanks to an unusually low level of sunspot activity and now, to make things even worse, an erupting volcano in Iceland is filling their skies with a dimming haze of ash.

PRESS RELEASE- KEN RING
Pinatubo had no measurable effect on climate
Auckland longrange forecaster Ken Ring, of www.predictweather.com , says the world was deceived by an oft-repeated claim that ash and dust from the Mt Pinatubo eruption on 12 June, 1991, caused global temperatures to decrease for at least a year afterwards. Annual temperatures, sunshine figures and radiation levels for several locations around the globe including for NZ for each year from 1981 to 1999.showed no spike, either upwards or downwards following that eruption. In fact for Tokyo, downwind from Pinatubo, sun radiation levels actually rose about a year later. If shielding was occurring solar radiation would diminish. The Pinatubo story, claims Mr Ring, was an early global warming-linked deception, because if it could be accepted that gases put into air can disrupt climate or weather patterns, then it strengthened the case for manmade gases to be capable of the same.

Hi Esther,
As you can see in this video, cap-and-trade is far from dead in America. http://eclipptv.com/viewVideo.php?video_id=11419
We should consider carefully the strategy of agreeing to go along with an ETS as long as other major countries do likewise. America just spent trillions they don’t have on bailouts and “health care” in spite of popular opposition. Those who think that the US Congress has any regard for the Constitution or the interest of ordinary Americans are living in a dream world. They may well pass this in spite of Climategate, and then where will we be?
Regards,
Mike

This is a fun 2 min video
You may be interested in the 2 minute video at the link below. It shows the beneficial power of carbon dioxide – one of Nature’s trace gases essential to all life on earth.
The sender, Dr LeBlanc Smith, is a former principal research scientist at CSIRO.
Subject: Truth Alert CO2 video on comparative plant growth rates
Double CO2 and “save the planet”?
This example is compelling for a new CO2 induced “green” philosophy to replace the CPRS fraud …
This type of information has roots in science going back well over 3 decades…
Why is it ignored?  Another inconvenient truth?
Dr Guy LeBlanc Smith, PhD, AIG, AAPG
The stone-age didn’t end because we ran out of stones…think smart!
*****************************************************************************************************************
I heard on the mainstream news radio today that NZ and Canadian scientists are getting together to study the effects climate change is having on the Antarctic. Its just crazy, “to study the effects normality on our planet that has happened for ever is having on ice.”
But don’t scientists already know that there has been a vast increase in ice over the last 30 years already?
So they want to see if they can somehow get together and disprove ice mass? Or prove what has always happened is frightful and unnatural?
C02 is life, warming is good for us, cooling is bad. But in reality the only extreme life changing economy wreaking happening is being induced by government policy wearing the green dress of mass propaganda.
We are living in 1984, literally.
Keep up the good work.
I will just also say that in 1982 there was a drought in Wellington. I have a picture of myself and my school teacher on the school field, the hills and all grass are completely brown -the only green was on trees. I remember being bored by the endless fine days.
We had hose restrictions and that was about it.
If this happened today we all know the response.

ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

This one is a little different…. Two Different Versions…. Two Different Morals


OLD VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away..

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!


MODERN VERSION

The ant works hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

Channels 7, 9 and 10,the ABC and SBS
show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. 

Australia is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so? 

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green.’

Acorn
stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house where the news stations film the group singing, ‘We shall overcome.’ Cardinal George Pell then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper’s sake.

Prime Minister Rudd
condemns the ant and blames John Howard, Robert Menzies, Capt James Cook, and the Pope for the grasshopper’s plight.

Bob Brown
exclaims in an interview on Today Tonight that the ant has gotten rich off the back of the grasshopper, and calls for an immediate        tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, Labor in conjunction with the Greens draft the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government and given to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food while the government house he is in, which, as you recall, just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around them because the grasshopper doesn’t maintain it.

The ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident, and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the ramshackle, once prosperous and once peaceful, neighborhood.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2011.
