It’s buttons for global warming! Hello — Climate Change has a new logo

After 4.5 billion years, finally climate change has a new logo.

But even some fans of the the Big Scare Campaign don’t like it. I can’t think why…

(It is dying – the fear of a carbon crisis.)

 

It looks to me like an inverse-SEO campaign designed by someone deeply afflicted with ASE (Artistic Status Envy — see also its Literary equivalent). Is the aim here just the banal trickery of ambushing the new skeptics who type “It’s not warming” into their search engines? Will gullible teens type in the phrase and find nothing but links to soft-green propaganda? (This could so easily backfire).

Or is this a new form of mental programming for the inductees into the climate faith? Now, when they hear “it’s not warming”, they’ll be getting confirmation — warming means “bad stuff”, now not warming means “bad stuff too!” It’s a form of deep psychology — so deep it’s done right through the magma and come out the other side.

If it looks upside down, that’s because it is.

on Grist is not impressed:

“It’s not warming, it’s dying.” That’s the message from the man behind the “I ♥ NY” logo, Milton Glaser. The message comes with a logo and buttons that people can buy and wear. Glaser says that “global warming” is not good language. On that, he’s right, but reframing it as “global dying” is worse.

In an interview with WNYC’s Brian Lehrer, Glaser said, “Global warming in its own way sounds sort of reassuring and comforting … that’s terrible. You begin by attacking the phrase itself — the word and what the word means — because the truth of the matter is that the earth is dying. And wouldn’t it be nice if today was the beginning of the most important date in human history which is the date we decided not to let the earth die?”

Arguing that the earth is dying is serious error and will probably do more harm than good. Two reasons why:

  1. “Global dying” keeps the issue firmly in the abstract.
  2. The earth isn’t dying. People are.

How could you knock back buttons this compelling?

 

 

No self respecting climate-goth would be without one.

Porter finds something nice to say: “At least the buttons don’t have any words on them.”

That really sums up their arguments perfectly.

Me I think this is a case of over-reach. It’s a clumsy attempt at a segue from the not-so-scary “climate change” and the failed “global warming” to see if they can get to “global dying”. And there they go following a hero again. Glaser is a “legend” who designed something “iconic”. What could possibly go wrong?

h/t to Joe.

    Black and green?

    Black usually means darkness and/or cold. Green, well that’s pretty obvious.

    As for me, I prefer the original watermelon button, green on the outside and red on the inside.

      Green & black are the colours of decaying & necrotic flesh.

      This creeps me out, namely becasue I think it signals the end game run of all this – where they seriously ramp up open persecution of “un-believers”

      http://www.deadline.com/2014/08/merchants-of-doubt-sony-pictures-classics-climate-change-skeptics/

      “Oscar nominee Robert Kenner‘s latest documentary looks at professional skeptics — those who are hired to cast doubt and delay action on climate change. Sony Pictures Classics has picked up worldwide rights to Merchants Of Doubt from Participant Media and Omidyar Network.

      “Merchants Of Doubt is that rare triple threat: well made, entertaining and destined to immediately become part of this volatile cultural debate,” Sony Pictures Classics said in a statement. The film is inspired by the book from Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway, which takes a satirical look at the heart of conjuring American spin. Kenner (Food Inc.) focuses on a secretive group of charismatic pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities – yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change. Jeff Ivers negotiated the deal for the film on behalf of Participant Media with Sony Pictures Classics.”

      The globe, like all things, is dying. And so what? Whether it happens tomorrow or a couple of billion years from now, the day is not ours to choose. We totally lack sufficient power.

      The way the human race is at war with itself right now it looks like we’re in a lot greater danger from our willingness to kill each other than we are from CO2.

        This button more represents the dying of the CAGW movement/religion than the planet in a cruel twist of irony, RIP CAGW you won’t be missed.

          Yonni,

          When I recently told my doctor I had long ago gotten used to the fact that life is a fatal disease, he roared with laughter.

          Maybe we can convince these warmists to adopt a similar attitude about the planet (Ha, ha, ha!). If we could it would surely bring down the level of tension and allow some reasoning to take over instead of the finger pointing and everything that has gone along with it for so long.

          I’m in some doubt that climate change fear is dying. If it goes away it seems more likely to have morphed into something equally “dangerous” (their definition, not mine or yours). The numbers of believers may be coming down but remember, the Nazi cause is still alive 69 years after the total defeat of it’s author. I have some hope that common sense can regain control but with climate change now embedded in popular culture the way it is, I don’t hold my breath.

              Yoni,

              I would have made a similar argument against the anti capitalists and their whole rotten act. And it’s growing thanks to the president and his supporters.

              I’ve probably said this before but if it wouldn’t hurt me and those I care about I could wish they get what they want and find out how badly it works. On the other hand, they could simply look around and see how badly it is working in the few places where they hang onto it instead of allowing at least some free enterprise. But wisdom is justified of all her children.

              I suspect those pushing this expect that they can avoid all the difficulties themselves, being somehow superior to the rest of us who can’t see the problem or the benefit of their solution.

              I was once a member of the Anglican Church and I’ve watched their descent into what they are now with great dismay.

              Yep!

              When I hear death rates talked about these days I always sneak in the undeniable fact that no matter where it is or whose point of view is being pushed, the death rate is always one per person. That changes the game immediately.

              I think far more useful figures would be the age at which someone died and the cause. And I mean the actual cause of death determined by a medical examiner (U.S. term) or pathologist (maybe a more general term). Estimates of how many die from dirty air or other reasons that are not documented by age and real hard evidence of the cause no longer interest me. They have been abused and misused for far too long.

                I maybe should change that and say the important figures are the age at death and the official cause as listed on the death certificate. It’s not always necessary to have an autopsy done. For instance if someone dies in the emergency room and the attending MD is willing to state the cause and put his signature on it then that’s the only thing required in the U.S.

          Our badges are all 100% pure, green and recycleable (into a less attractive badge).
          These are ethically sourced, made with continuous oversight and monitoring to ensure efficient, green, and highly profitable manufacturing process. These products are manufactured using the finest child laborers shipped in from somewhere, working in hygenically contaminated chemical atmospheres until they drop, then ethically buried when their relatives fail to claim their decomposing remains.
          All green materials are sustainable and ethical, really, so don’t worry about that ( as long as the money keeps coming in. )

    They should have used stickers instead of buttons so that those inflicted with climate hysteria could wear the sticker in the middle of their forehead where it would look like a giant green/black hole in an empty head. This certainly would have been a more accurate symbolism for the level of empty headedness required to join in on this new anti-science anti-human death cult campaign.

      Looking very cold over s/e Oz.

      Here is our BoM- July 24, 2014:

      Worst of winter likely over as warming trend begins

      “After what was Australia’s hottest year on record, it’s quite staggering to have yet another spring-like winter,” said Agata Imielska, senior climatologist for the Bureau of Meteorology.

      Models run by Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology, NOAA and other agencies continue to tip the likelihood of an El Nino forming later this year.”

    It’s perfect. There are no words, so when they change their tune from “Global (cooling or warming,)” or “Climate (change|disruption|catastrophe|boo-boo etc.)” they don’t have to update the button. There is no pesky graphic device that requires an explanation as to what it symbolizes… with the added bonus that it cannot be satirized as easily… but I would describe it as the plant kingdom’s dying gasp as their life-giving CO2 is destroyed.

    Here’s a poem I wrote in frustration at the lack of open discussion in Sweden. It’s called “Life is a Gas!” which could be a good motto for a button. Anybody like to design one?
    LIFE IS A GAS!

    Life is a gas – CO2 –
    (And oxygen, of course)
    But to say that it drives the climate
    Puts proverbial cart before horse.

    What Al Gore said in his lecture,
    Unbacked by observable proof,
    Turned out to be pure conjecture –
    An inconvenient truth…

    The ice-core samples from Vostok
    Plotting temperature change over time
    Revealed that in fact CO2 change
    Lags hundreds of years behind.

    Greenland was green when the Vikings
    Settled a millennium ago;
    While Frost Fairs were held on the Thames
    Six centuries later, or so.

    The IPCC used a Mann-made stick
    To flatten this bumpy graph
    To prove to us all – Q.E.D. –
    That this life-giving gas ‘ain’t no larf!’

    They say, thanks to human endeavour,
    Our carbon footprints expand
    Playing all hell with the weather
    And flooding both ocean and land.

    Once upon a time, CO2
    Was a colourless, non-toxic gas;
    Now: ”an anthropogenic emission”
    On a mission to fry us, en masse.

    The bottom line is that this substance,
    In solid or gaseous form,
    Will turn the world into a greenhouse
    Globally warmer than warm!

    Mass production and consumption
    Took off at the end of the war.
    Despite Kyoto, COPs and Cap’n trade
    CO2 levels continue to soar.

    Fossil fuels, factories and flying machines
    All add their bit to a graph
    That rises each year relentlessly
    When it ought to be falling by half.

    The temperature curve, however,
    Just will not play the game:
    Rise, fall, rise for a century
    Then 17 years the same!

    Elaborate computer models
    Are the IPCC’s crystal ball
    None of which have predicted
    The recent no-warming-at-all!

    Climate Science is now a religion
    Where AGW is PC
    And the MSM censure everything
    Bar the Gospel of IPCC.

    So worship the great god Consensus,
    Believe what it tells you is Truth;
    Or else you’ll be branded Denier
    And your views will be taken as proof!

    High Priest Strong said at Rio –
    Leaving Greens to fill in the gaps –
    ”Isn’t the only hope for the planet
    That the industrialised nations collapse?”

    Now that’s hardly a secret agenda;
    The Club of Rome endorsed it too:
    ”All we need is the right major crisis…”
    And the scapegoat is – you know who!

    So now parties of all creeds and colours
    Kowtow to this climate-smart code:
    Nature should be a museum
    Back in pre-industrial mode.

    The Germans have ‘Energiewende’,
    Swopping nuclear power for coal;
    The Brits import timber from Canada
    To spruce up their CO2 goal.

    The rest of the Greens look to EU
    To tax us all off the map.
    Survivors will catch the Royal Virus,
    Prince Philip – jolly old chap!

    Meanwhile, in the real world, the Future
    Has billions of new mouths to feed.
    So ‘power plants’ must be provided
    To supply them with all that they need.

    Electricity and food for all
    Means carbon dioxide, you see,
    In South America, Africa, Asia…
    Rather than just you and me.

    Now 120 parts per million –
    The parts that we’ve added, let’s say –
    Plus a period of gentle warming
    Have made the Earth greener today

    Yet ask any market gardener
    What the Greenhouse Effect means to them
    And they’ll tell you that king-sized veggies
    Crave 1200 ppm.

    The more CO2, then, the better;
    Photosynthesis thrives on the stuff.
    So frack up both shale gas and oil,
    Of which there is more than enough!

    And let us pray Global Warming
    Doesn’t take a turn for the worse
    As its cousin, Global Cooling,
    Is definitely more of a curse.

    For the Little Ice Age was no picnic:
    No sunspots, no food, no fun;
    And the sun’s present spotless condition
    Suggests a new cold spell has begun.

    So the IPCC have a problem if –
    Despite the hot air they exhale –
    Their cheeks and the climate start turning
    A whiter shade of pale.

    For Climate Change is the default,
    The null-hypothetical state.
    On those that say Man overrides this
    The burden of proof is great.

    For the climate has always been changing;
    Change is here to stay.
    As King Canute showed on the seashore,
    Man cannot keep Nature at bay!

    So, historians, when you review our time
    And our hysterical CO2 Show,
    Lay not the blame on us poor clowns
    For your landscape of ice and snow…

    The only thing dying is the apocalyptic scenarios, that can really scare people. Now, for those most susceptible, a black and green badge is all that is needed.
    In Britain there was a threat of nuclear war for nearly half a century. On Sunday I visited RAF Holmpton, a new tourist attraction near to Hull. It was a major radar station during the cold war, containing 120-140 personnel in a bunker beneath 10m of soil, 3-4m of concrete and 30cm of tungsten. But if it received a direct hit from a one megaton nuclear warhead, the site would have become a 400 meter wide crater. The Soviet Union had two such monstrosities targeted at the station.
    This is the result of huge amounts of energy concentrated in one spot in a very short period of time. But dispersed across the globe it is very little. It would take the energy of around 1.5 x 10^16 such bombs (or 6.2 x 10^17 Hiroshima bombs) to raise the top 2000 metres of ocean by just one degree.

Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting, Patch Adams, the Fisher King, Awakenings and so on. You wonder to what extent those reflected his own inner battles. One of the very few that earnt the title comic genius, in my humble opinion.

    woke up this morning to the following program on the radio. i don’t even like Stephen Sackur, the BBC interviewer, but compared to the arrogance, rudeness & madness of Rifkin, Sackur was almost likeable:

    25 mins: BBC Hardtalk: Economist – Jeremy Rifkin
    First broadcast: Monday 11 August 2014
    What if we lived in a radically different world? An internet-driven, smart world where individuals and communities generate their own free energy, produce and share the things they need and build an economy defined by collaboration, not competition.
    For economist and author Jeremy Rifkin, this is no utopian fantasy – it is the unfolding story of the next century. Are we really entering a post-capitalist age?
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0245lv1

    funny thing is the above states the program was first broadcast 11 August, but i have the feeling the following is the same program, tho 5 minutes longer. it has the exact same summary. no way am i listening to find out:

    naturally, Rifkin is popular at ABC!

    8 July: ABC Four Corners: Power to the People
    By Stephen Long and Karen Michelmore
    Newspapers, telecommunications and the entertainment industry have all felt the chill winds of change brought on by new technology. Now science is revolutionising power generation. Technology is making alternative sources of energy cheaper, more user-friendly and, crucially, it’s decentralising production to the rooftops of homes and commercial buildings across Australia.
    So why is the Federal Government moving away from its commitment to renewable sources of energy? Why would it consider reducing renewable energy targets, favouring greenhouse-gas emitting coal and gas?…
    All this leaves the Federal Government in a difficult situation. If it decides to wind back the policy clock and downplay renewables, it will lose a high-tech cutting-edge industry while it props up old-style big polluters. As economist and author Jeremy Rifkin puts it, the choice is stark:
    “It’s ridiculous. Australia’s the Saudi Arabia of renewable energy. There’s so much sun, there’s so much wind off the coast, and so it makes absolutely no sense when you have an abundance of renewable energy, [to] rely on a depleting supply of fossil fuels with all of the attendant consequences to society and the planet.”…
    (FROM TRANSCRIPT) JEREMY RIFKIN: We now have millions and millions of small players, home owners, small businesses, cooperatives, even large businesses that are producing their own solar and wind generated green electricity at near zero marginal cost.
    In 10 years from now, 15 years from now, we’ll have tens of millions of local sites producing green electricity on micro-grids. In 20 years, from now we’ll have hundreds of millions of people producing their own green electricity.
    Economist and author, Jeremy Rifkin, argues that green energy and new communications technology are ushering in a period of radical economic change…
    STEPHEN LONG: There’s also a risk that global action on climate change will push up the price of fossil fuels, leaving Australia with stranded power assets and soaring electricity prices.
    JEREMY RIFKIN: So we have enough of these renewable energies distributed in every square inch of Australia and the world to power our species’ needs till kingdom comes, at near zero marginal cost, without pollution to the planet.
    So what kind of cockamamie thinking, if I may say this, keeps us into these old polluting dinosaur energies and technologies of the 20th Century, when we could be in the new energies of 21st century and have unlimited amount of renewable energy?
    STEPHEN LONG: Yes, it costs money to create the infrastructure for renewable energy, a lot of money.
    But existing fossil fuel generators and power utilities were subsidised: by and large, built with public funds.
    If renewable energy becomes ubiquitous, the economies of scale should deliver a radical reduction in power prices that could transform the world economy.
    Will Australia be leading the revolution, or will it be left behind?

    May 2012: ABC Big Ideas: Jeremy Rifkin on the Third Industrial Revolution
    Writer and thinker Jeremy Rivkin delivers this address to the Royal Society of the Arts (RSA) in London on the critical need to develop our economies into a post carbon Third Industrial Revolution, or else we’ll spiral into a ‘dangerous endgame’…
    Rifkin is compelling in addressing the coming convergence of internet technology and digital communications with energy and environmental issues. He has been an advisor to the European Union since 2002 and in that capacity has been the principle architect of the Third Industrial Revolution long term economic sustainability plan addressing the global economic crisis, energy security and climate change.

    no wonder the EU is an economic mess!

    Wikipedia: Jeremy Rifkin
    He is also the founder and chairperson of the Third Industrial Revolution Global CEO Business Round Table, composed of the world’s leading renewable energy companies, construction companies, architectural firms, real estate companies, IT companies, power and utility companies, and transport and logistics companies…
    In 1988, Rifkin brought together climate scientists and environmental activists from 35 nations in Washington, D.C. for the first meeting of the Global Greenhouse Network. In the same year, Rifkin did a series of Hollywood lectures on global warming and related environmental issues for a diverse assortment of film, television and music industry leaders, with the goal of organizing the Hollywood community for a campaign. Shortly thereafter, two Hollywood environmental organizations, Earth Communications Office (ECO), and Environmental Media Association, were formed…
    In 1992, Rifkin launched the Beyond Beef Campaign, a coalition of six environmental groups including Green Peace, Rainforest Action Network, and Public Citizen, with the goal of encouraging a 50% reduction in the consumption of beef, arguing that methane emissions from Cattle has a warming effect 23 to 50 times greater than carbon dioxide…
    The Third Industrial Revolution was formally endorsed by the European Parliament in 2007 and is now being implemented by various agencies within the European Commission….
    In 2011, Rifkin’s Third Industrial Revolution vision and economic development plan was embraced by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO)…
    On May 29, 2012, Rifkin delivered the keynote address at the European Commission Conference: Mission Growth; Europe at the Lead of the New Industrial Revolution. At the conference, hosted by José Manuel Barroso, the President of the European Commission, and Antonio Tajani, the Vice President of the European Commission and the Minister of Industry and Entrepreneurship, Rifkin presented the European Union’s long term economic development plan to transition the European economy into the Third Industrial Revolution era…
    Rifkin has been an advisor to the European Union for the past decade. Rifkin also served as an advisor to President Nicolas Sarkozy of France, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany, Prime Minister Jose Socrates of Portugal, Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero of Spain, and Prime Minister Janez Jansa of Slovenia, during their respective European Council Presidencies, on issues related to the economy, climate change, and energy security. He currently advises the European Commission, the European Parliament, and several EU heads of state…
    The Union of Concerned Scientists has cited some of Rifkin’s publications as useful references for consumers and The New York Times once stated that “many in the scholarly, religious, and political fields praise Jeremy Rifkin for a willingness to think big, raise controversial questions, and serve as a social and ethical prophet”…

    Actually my reaction was probably quite a lot different to most when I first saw that logo a couple of minutes ago after bringing up Jo’s site.
    My reaction was what a bloody good way of sticking it to the alarmists and the climate “wackavists” [ trade marked by Allen @ WUWT ]
    Just swipe their logo and turn it against them

    _______________

    ITS NOT WARMING
    –ITS DYING

    –[ logo ]

    (It is dying – the fear of a carbon crisis.)
    _____________

    Not at all sure if that last bit underneath belongs to the logo but it sure rings a bell for the skeptics.

    It can be translated as meaning the exact reverse of what the climate wackavists meant it to mean.

    A small change of some sort will do the trick for the skeptics .
    I’m not good at this sort of image changing subtlety but just maybe

    While Sen. Mitch McConnell is traveling Kentucky portraying himself as a friend of coal, his wife, former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, sits on the board of Bloomberg Philanthrophies, an organization that is supporting an anti-coal campaign.
    McConnell, a Republican seeking his sixth term in one of the nation’s most-watched Senate races, also has been a staunch defender of tobacco interests. But, again, Chao is advising the Bloomberg group even as it backs a global battle against tobacco.
    Furthermore, Bloomberg Philanthrophies is the creation of former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent billionaire who as an individual has given $2.5 million to the super PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev…
    The Bloomberg Family Foundation, as the philanthropic organization is formally known, has committed $50 million over four years to a campaign against coal…
    On a Bloomberg website entitled “Beyond Coal,” the group states that it is partnered with the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign “to move the country from coal to clean energy.”….

    kudos to AFR for publishing this dose of reality:

    12 Aug: Australian Financial Review: Coal always wins and will stay No. 1, says carbon king Boyce
    by Amanda Saunders
    Peabody Energy chief executive Greg Boyce is calling on coal producers to spend more time and money fighting “symbolic” movements against the industry and is confident China will not adopt a cap on carbon emissions.
    As the anti-coal collective gathers more mainstream backers, St Louis-based Mr Boyce says the industry needs to do more to counter the attacks, particularly the global fossil fuels divestment campaign.
    But he is confident that “coal always wins out”.
    “If as an industry if we spent more time educating, if we all spent more money, we would have less of these symbolic moves, which are really done without a full knowledge of the equation,” he said in an exclusive interview.
    If the coal industry “spent more time and money explaining the good that we do . . . people [would] understand what the new coal industry looks like”, he said.
    Mr Boyce expects global coal demand to grow by 700 million tonnes over the next three years, driven in the main by China…
    “From a global perspective, 80 per cent of our energy comes from fossil fuels. It’s going to be that way for the rest of our lifetimes and beyond.”…
    Like BHP Billiton boss Andrew Mackenzie, Mr Boyce argues that coal is ­crucial to pulling the world’s poorest out of  “energy poverty”, and says divestment proponents are largely from developed countries…
    And Mr Boyce was scathing of ­climate change advocates who argue it is the most critical issue facing the world today, pointing instead to the challenge of pulling 3.5 billion people out of poverty globally.
    “I think energy poverty is the biggest environmental and human problem that we have; I don’t believe that it is the changing climate,” he said. “The environmental issues that are driven by global poverty far outweigh anything we might model looking at climate models for the next 50 years. And remember, that’s all they are: models…

    before going offline, here’s the latest begging piece from the World Bank!

    11 Aug: World Bank: Why Business Leaders Support a Price on Carbon
    More than 250 companies have joined a statement that is being organized by the World Bank Group and partners including the World Economic Forum, UN Global Compact, and the Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group encouraging governments to explore carbon pricing methods and set their own predictable price on carbon…
    For investors, transparency and sustainability are important. A price on carbon helps bring to light the risk of stranded assets and connects the damages caused by burning fossil fuels to their sources, costs that are rarely reflected in stock prices today…
    The French public service pension fund ERAFP proposes that companies report their carbon footprint as a proxy to assess how businesses are preparing to deal with climate change…
    Public money alone will not be enough to shift the world to low-carbon growth than can reduce missions to safer levels. Nearly two-thirds of finance for projects today that help mitigate climate change, such as renewable energy development and expansion of energy efficiency, comes from the private sector, and the combined total is far short of the investment needed…

    Slightly less tongue in cheek; Even the guts of the show, the wording “it’s dying,” repeated twice, points that way!

    One thing not in doubt is that the denizens of Jo’s blog are thoroughly enjoying themselves in letting their imaginations and sarcasm run rampant on the whole subject.

    13 Aug: Australian: Sid Maher: Senate may kill carbon market
    At risk will be 153 projects around Australia which include efforts to harness waste gas from landfills run by councils, tree planting and deforestation prevention schemes, and the prevention of emissions from piggeries.
    They are run under the existing Carbon Farming Initiative which was part of Labor’s carbon pricing scheme…
    With the carbon tax scrapped, the projects need the emissions reduction fund to be passed to create a market for their emissions reduction units…Environment Minister Greg Hunt said he was inviting Labor, the Greens and the crossbench senators to work with the government to ensure that the CFI “is not just maintained but extended”…
    Under the legislation to be debated in the Senate existing projects would automatically transferred into the emissions ­reduction fund and be able to sell their permits to the government as part of its auction process.
    The emissions reduction fund if passed will be expanded to include energy efficiency projects and other emissions reduction ­activities…
    Labor, the Greens and the Palmer United Party have vowed to oppose direct action, but now face lobbying from proponents of the emissions reduction projects to pass the fund to maintain a market for their projects.
    Otherwise the only remaining domestic market will be that for voluntary carbon offsets which has been depressed by a glut of international permits
    Chris Mitchell, managing ­director of advisory CO2 Australia said if the legislation failed to pass the Senate by net February there would be a “massive gap’’ and the country would effectively be left without a program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
    ***Dr Mitchell said given the abolition of the emissions trading scheme “there is no incentive to reduce emissions at all without the emissions reduction fund’’.

    some may have noticed WUWT has a thread on the fake Tuvalu CAGW refugee story i posted on in an earlier thread of jo’s.

    WUWT: WAPO – ‘Has the era of the climate change refugee begun?’
    Story submitted by Barry Brill
    The Washington Post’s recent story that New Zealand might admit climate refugees from Tuvalu has no basis in fact…

    well, in the manner of all CAGW propaganda, the fake story continues to spread:

    includes video with Ove Hoegh-Guldberg!

    12 Aug: TheWeatherNetwork: Cheryl Santa Maria: New Zealand accepts climate change refugees from Tuvalu
    According to news agency UPI, this is the first time refugees have blamed climate change on their displacement…
    Experts suspect the family was granted special status because they had been living in New Zealand since 2007 and have close ties to the country.
    Still, climate change migration expert François Gemenne told the Washington Post that “bilaterial or regional arrangements” may be necessary in the future to ensure the protection of people displaced by climate change…

    Amazon: The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change – June 2014
    by Yoram Bauman & Grady Klein
    Climate change is no laughing matter — but maybe it should be. The topic is so critical that everyone, from students to policy-makers to voters, needs a quick and easy guide to the basics. The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change entertains as it educates, delivering a unique and enjoyable presentation of mind-blowing facts and critical concepts.
    “Stand-up economist” Yoram Bauman and award-winning illustrator Grady Klein have created the funniest overview of climate science, predictions, and policy that you’ll ever read. You’ll giggle, but you’ll also learn—about everything from Milankovitch cycles to carbon taxes…
    The authors know how to get a laugh—and they know their facts. This cartoon introduction is based on the latest report from the authoritative Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and integrates Bauman’s expertise on economics and policy…
    If economics can be funny, then climate science can be a riot. Sociologists have argued that we don’t address global warming because it’s too big and frightening to get our heads around. The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change takes the intimidation and gloom out of one of the most complex and hotly debated challenges of our time.

    12 Aug: UK Telegraph: Edward Malnick: Wind farms paid record sum not to produce electricity
    Windy weather and low demand for electricity led to wind farm owners being paid a record amount to switch off turbines on Monday
    Wind farms were paid a record sum of almost £3 million in a single day this week not to produce electricity.
    Strong winds amid the remnants of Hurricane Bertha left the electricity network unable to cope with the amount of energy being produced by turbines on Monday.
    As a result National Grid paid owners £2.8 million to shut down their wind farms, at up to double the rate they would have received in subsidies had they actually generated electricity.
    A further £1.1 million was given to other power stations to generate electricity to make up the shortfall created by shutting the wind farms down.
    The money – detailed in figures provided by National Grid – will ultimately be added on to household bills and paid for by consumers…
    On Monday the strong winds caused a spike in the amount of electricity produced by wind farms, leading to a “bottleneck” of energy leaving the network from Scotland, where many of the country’s turbines have been built. …
