Newsletter No. 35 For 2010 From the NZ Climate Realists Against the ETS

Greetings once again Climate Realists,

Activists, Neil & Esther Henderson

welcome to the last newsletter for 2010.
As we look back over the last twelve months we realise what a busy year it has been for Climate Realists around New Zealand.
There are many people to thank for all the hard work they have put in this year, in a great variety of ways.
The start of 2010 saw a campaign launched, aimed at getting the government to defer the Emissions Trading Scheme.
Act MP John Boscawen worked incredibly hard, visiting towns all over New Zealand, holding many meetings attended by wildly varying numbers of people. We salute John and thank him for a fantastic effort.
I would also like to recognise John’s assistants, especially Karen, who work very hard behind the scenes and helped make these meetings happen.
The New Zealand Climate Science Coalition has also worked tirelessly although mostly unnoticed by the majority of the NZ public. We wish them all the best as their court case agains NIWA unfolds over the coming months.
Throughout the year there have been many ‘climate-focused’ meetings held by a variety of groups including MAF, Federated Farmers, IPENZ, Oxfam and VisionNetwork NZ. Thanks are due to all the many Climate Realists who have attended these meetings and put in their best efforts at persuading the organisers and attendees that a lot of what is currently presented in the mainstream media is not as accurate as they may have been led to believe.
There are those in the media who have presented their reports from a neutral perspective or even given Climate Realists a fair hearing and we thank you- Vapi Kupenga from Radio Waatea, Robbie from the Waitomo News, Martin from the Gisborne Herald, and any others whose reports may not have reached as far as Motu. Leighton Smith, where would be without you?
Ian Wishart of Investigate Magazine and TGIF has also worked very hard to raise the profile of the climate issue this year, and keep it in the public eye. We are forever indebted to him for his encouragement in starting this network in the first place.
Further into 2010 as part of the ‘defer the ETS’ campaign Climate Realists demonstrated outside the National Party Regional Conference venues. Thanks to all those who took part, with a special mention of Larry Baldock who travelled huge distances to be at several venues and was at times a sole demonstrator.
Larry is leader of the Kiwi Party, the only political party other than ACT which has a sensible attitude towards climate change and the ETS. Larry has also been working hard to gain signatures for the campaign 4Democracy petition http://4democracy.co.nz/ which we would encourage everyone to support.
Thanks also to the Gisborne locals who picketed the airport (at very short notice!) when John Key arrived in town…… not forgetting John C who drove all the way from National Park to join us with his placard- you truly amazed us, John. (By the way, how’s the puppy shaping up?)
There are also a number of groups who have researched into the background of the climate issue- the NZCPR covers a range of subjects and is in need of support (see item further in this newsletter) and we also acknowledge Robin Grieve of  Pastural Farming Climate Research who has put in a tremendous number of hours on behalf of the livestock farmers in NZ. See Robin’s latest findings mentioned further down this newsletter.
The Fieldays in June saw a concerted last-ditch attempt to influence the government into deferring the ETS- with over 2,000 signatures collected in just three days, we are more convinced than ever that there is not nearly as much support out there for the ETS as the government would like to believe. Many thanks to Brian Anselmi who organised the march on Parliament, and to those who helped collect signatures at the Fieldays, helped mind the stall (shared with ACT), helped with the displays, helped distribute leaflets advertising the protest march …. and of course to those Climate Realists who managed to make it all the way to Wellington to be there on the day. Thank you Rodney Hide, John Boscawen and the other ACT MPs who met us on the steps of Parliament.
Thanks to speakers Don Nicolson (Fed Farmers), Vapi Kupenga (Radio Waatea), Robin Grieve (PFCR) and Bob McCoskrie (Family First).
Don Nicolson of Federated Farmers has been a great support throughout the year. He has worked very hard in so many areas and across so many issues- we are thankful for the time and encouragement he has given us. Thank you especially for making the time to speak at the protest march.
Ken, ever active with your Facebook group, and all the contributors to this newsletter- the many people who distributed Climate Realists pamphlets around their neighbourhoods, and of course all of you who wrote letters and emails to John Key and his cohorts- a great big thank you for your efforts. And of course Alan our kind and longsuffering printer…. ……. we’ve disposed of a lot of bumper stickers and pamphlets this year!
With an election coming up one wonders whether the loss of so many voters will have an impact. There are two parties out there who won’t support the ETS, wouldn’t it be great if they were both represented in Parliament?
Enough! If I’ve missed anyone out, my apologies and thank you too…….
Have a wonderful Christmas, enjoy your families, drive safely,
and have a Happy New Year.
all the best,
Neil and Esther

BREAKING: Hottest year ever claims based on fake data

You hear it trotted out so often it’s tiresome, but for those who still believe the climate scientists who claim 2010 is “the hottest year ever”, here’s a wake-up call: the data is fake. (another perspective here)

It’s a similar stunt I pinged New Zealand’s NIWA for a year ago. It seems anyone with access to a cereal packet is licensed to be a UN endorsed climate scientist these days.

You cannot extrapolate temperatures on a global level from areas where there are no accurate temp readings for hundreds of kilometres. It’s guess work, not science.

And just to pre-empt any time wasting by Ken Perrott, who has consistently tried to defend NIWA, may I remind Ken he has offered no coherent explanation for his flawed logic exposed here:

Meanwhile, some good news.

Air Con Climategate 2010 edition has finally gone on sale in NZ bookshops after we arranged for the US files to be printed locally in Wellington.

Whitcoulls and Paperplus are the best places to try first.

Dear Neil,
The president of Act, Chris Simmons will be at our place ( 127A, Rayner Rd., Huntly ) on Jan. 19th. at 7.00 P.M., I have also invited John Boscawen, who has not as yet replied. All Climate Realists will know of John’s tireless campaigning against the E.T.S. I would be delighted to welcome any climate realists. Rosanne Jollands from Taupo is coming , who will give an update of campaigning ideas between now and election day. I would be most grateful if you could put this in the next newsletter.
Yours sincerely,

James J.Read

From the team at Pastural Farming Climate Research:
A study which was presented by Dr Bryce Buddle, an AgResearch scientist and Peter Hutton, a Massey University lecturer produced this graph which demonstrates that despite accelerated increases in ruminant numbers there has been no equivalent increase in global methane concentrations.

They explain “the link between atmospheric methane and ruminant population growth seems to have broken down” Further they say   ” it does suggest a need to reassess the contribution of livestock production to the entire process (global warming).”

This is what we at PFCR have been calling for all along.

By Viscount Monckton of Brenchley
“But don’t you realise,” said the bearded, staring enviro-zomb with the regrettable T-shirt, “that global cooling is what we must expect because of global warming?”
“Don’t you realise,” I replied, “how silly that sounds? The lowest temperatures ever recorded here in Cancun six days in a row; four extreme winters on the trot in the Northern hemisphere; more people dying in one three-day cold snap in little England in 2002 than Oxfam pretends died of `global warming’ worldwide throughout 2010; where’s your perspective, man?”
Perspective, the Olympian capacity to see events as they affect not just us and our mates but everyone, and not just in the excitement of the present but sub specie aeternitatis, in the long, calm, kindly shadow of eternity: this has gone from what passes for education in the West.
The climate bugaboo, the strangest intellectual aberration of our age, rampages because in the me and now we have cast aside three once-universal forms of learning that gave us perspective: a Classical education, to remind us that in reason and logic there is a difference between true and false; a scientific education, to show us which is which; and a religious education, to teach us why the distinction matters.
With perspective, no one would waste a single second of his own time or a red cent of other people’s money trying, Canute-like, to make “global warming” go away.
In the me and now, even eminent professors lack perspective. Last week one such wrote to the Daily Telegraph to say that Roger Helmer, the jovial Tory MEP, ought not to have gone to Cancun for the latest big-carbon-footprint UN climate junket. Instead, said the Prof, Mr Helmer should have used the time learning that “global warming” of 0.7C in a single century was unprecedented in the last 600,000 years.
No. As Mr Helmer wrote in his reply, 11,400 years ago at the end of the last Ice Age, temperatures in Antarctica rose by 5C in just three years. That’s global warming. Thermometers in central England showed warming of 2.2C during just 40 years from 1695-1735 – eight times faster than 20th-century warming.
Another headline last week shrieked that Viscount Monckton had admitted global warming is happening. Again, where’s the perspective? The author had aimed to suggest that if even a notorious recusant was now confessing, in the words of Dr Heinz Kiosk, that “We Are All Guilty”, no one could deny that “global warming” is, like, I mean, jolly bad stuff, man.
Nice try, but no. Four years ago, I wrote in the Sunday Telegraph that: “There are more greenhouse gases in the air than there were, so the world should warm a bit, but that’s as far as the consensus goes.”
Yes, there is a greenhouse effect. Yes, CO2 contributes to it. Yes, it causes warming. Yes, we emit CO2. Yes, warming will result. But not a lot.
Even if CO2 were as bad as some think, pietistic extravagances like Boris’ Bikes in London would solve nothing. The cost of this lunatic scheme – I kid you not – is £16,400 per bike. But it’s “green”, so no one did the maths. So heroically cost-ineffective are schemes like this that it would cost £4 quadrillion to forestall the 3 C of “global warming” claimed for this century.
While I’m at it, I wasn’t “forced to leave a high-level business summit” in Cancun, either. The organisers, Climate Change Ltd, said they would take my $1000 entrance fee provided that, unlike other paying delegates, I raised no points from the floor: they said only believers in man-made apocalypse could speak up.
Another failure of perspective. One of the two ancient principles of natural justice long recognised in British law is audiatur et altera pars. Hear the other side too. It’s certainly cheaper, and it’s probably right.
Viscount Monckton of Brenchley worked at the Number 10 Policy Unit during Margaret Thatcher’s premiership.

Actually, this is pretty clever. The department secretary says she’s setting up “a task force to identify and assess the impact that climate change could have on the missions and operations of the Department of Homeland Security.”

She satisfies the wackos who actually believe in the silliness, the watermelons who no longer believe in the silliness yet want climate change regulations to satisfy their own agendas, and normal people who know it doesn’t exist, by saying the task force will assess in impact that it could have on national security.

NZ Centre for Political Research needs your support:
Dear …………..,
You are receiving this email because over the years you have kindly supported the New Zealand Centre for Political Research. As you know, politics is the battle of ideas. Ideas influence people and the NZCPR plays a pivotal role in informing the public, challenging the administration, and advocating policies that promote freedom and prosperity. The NZCPR simply could not exist without the backing of subscribers like yourself – your generosity is greatly appreciated.
Without a doubt, 2010 has been the hardest year yet for the New Zealand Centre for Political Research. Having recognised back in April the disastrous impact that the government’s Marine and Coastal Area Bill would have on the country – and realising that no-one was speaking out against the proposed law change – I began working on a voluntary basis to establish the Coastal Coalition as an umbrella group to fight the Bill. That voluntary effort is on-going with fundraising for the Coastal Coalition’s public information campaign to oppose the Bill still being a key priority.
However, that has meant that essentially I have been unable to fundraise for the New Zealand Centre for Political Research for most of the year. As the NZCPR is funded entirely by newsletter readers I would like to make an appeal to you: if you believe my efforts this year have been of value, then please send in a donation.
Kindest regards,
Muriel
Dr Muriel Newman
New Zealand Centre for Political Research
