Get ready for Climate Hustle 2: Coming Thursday 8pm!

Just in time for the US election. Climate Hustle 2 is almost a Who’s Who of the climate skeptic world. It’s a documentary of the power games, dirty tricks and brazen hypocrisy behind the push for a global governance through the excuse of carbon dioxide. It’s about the way children are used as pawns, trained in schools to “become a whole generation of obedient voters”. It’s Eisenhower’s warning, and Nineteen Eighty Four. It’s the Rise of the Climate Monarchy.

Marc Morano and CFACT have circled the world, interviewing everyone from Richard Lindzen, to the late great Bob Carter, to Vauclav Klaus and Patrick Moore, the man Greenpeace erased. There’s Christopher Monckton, Will Happer, Roger Pielke, Tim Ball, Don Easterbrook, Senator Malcolm Roberts, Anthony Watts… too many to name, even briefly, Jo Nova. This is aimed at a wider audience than the skeptics who will be familiar with the battles of the last ten years. But even for the die-hards, there’s something good about putting faces to so many names.

Worldwide, the online premiere is set to take place on September 24th at 8 p.m. (in every time zone around the world … including yours in Australia!). For those who can’t be there at 8pm, the replay of both Climate Hustle 1 & 2 broadcasts will remain viewable through September 27th. 1 hr 35 mins.

 Get your ticket today!

Tim Ball: “Until you push back at Big Government you have no idea how nasty it can get.”

There have only been a few professional documentaries that share the skeptical message. So support CFACT, Climate Depot, and the team that put it together. Skeptics need to reach a wider crowd. There must have been hundreds of hours of footage to condense.


….

It is an online stream but can, through google chrome cast or Apple TV or just linked up to your computer be watched on your regular television.  One ticket will be enough for you and your family and friends to all watch together.

________________________
UPDATE: I know skeptics are skeptical of “preaching to the converted” — but this documentary is already reaching fence sitters, new skeptics, and people who just haven’t paid much attention to the climate debate. Marc Morano and CFACT are already doing 6 – 10 interviews every single day.

We all benefit from getting past the censors — so put on your “hats” and think about ways to use this opportunity. Suggest avenues in comments. And it would be ideal if you happen to have a few like minded friends over on Thursday night (great excuse just to see friends) and if you do, take a photo, add it on Twitter (I’ll add the right # here) and show the world that there are lot of skeptics out there, who won’t be silenced by the cowards and parasites of facebook, youtube, google, our education sector and the mainstream media.

    There is no doubt this is going to be great, but it will only be seen by those who already don’t believe in the Climate Scam.

    If it was put for free on YouTube or Vimeo, then I could send the link and try to make some of my acquaintances who are believers have a look at it. But no one who is a believer will pay 15$ to have their faith questioned. They are already convinced that I am mistaken when I express contrarian views about climate change.

    In the USA, Fox Network should put in on the air, in prime time. The timing would be excellent, right in the presidential campaign.
    Here in Canada, no network would consider airing it.

      Even if I bought them tickets, most of my colleagues and friends would refuse to watch it. Sadly, the same for my family.

        I’ve just got off the phone with Craig Rucker from CFACT. He and Marc Morano are doing 6 – 10 interviews every single day in the USA. Marc Morano was on Tucker Carlson last week.

        The documentary is a different way to reach people, another tool, and the big obstacle here is spreading the word to get past the censorship. Put your suggestions here of avenues to use this, I’ll pass them on. I’m sure Craig will be interested in hearing which outlets or groups might be able to use this in any country people want to suggest.

        As everyone here knows, the blacklisting and censorship is stronger than ever, and far worse than 2016. So “hat’s on”, how do we get the word out…

        This documentary would be most useful for people who are new skeptics, or fence sitters, as a way of quickly absorbing some of the most important events and behind the scenes players.

      Exactly right. The film is making an expensive pitch to its existing audience. It’s needs a free airing on a tv station that already shows a variety of programmes.

      Fox would be a good choice to reach the wider audience. At any time of day, FOX News is almost always in the top 3 of the “what’s trending” app on Dish Network. CNN and MSNBC are always way, way behind. Many FOX shows are consistently the #1 watched show and this is based on SF Bay Area demographics which is mostly Democrat.

      I wouldn’t be surprised to see highlights across the entire Fox News prime time lineup sometime before the election.

      Rick Morano of CFACT was on Tucker Carlson recently, so they know about it …

    Seems like a great cast being interviewed but experience with CFACT suggests that they are good at promotion but lacking when it comes to science.

    • #

      KK, think differently. CFACTs role is not to be science association. They are major players in getting a scientific and political message out to the masses. They manage to pick the best minds, support them, and share their message. That’s a role skeptics desperately need in the chain from indepth discovery to voters in the street.

      This documentary is not trying to tackle the science — it’s trying to open eyes to the social and political forces at work — to the end game. And that’s a great thing.

      Far from lacking anything, CFACT play a very wise line on scientific topics. Remember — most voters didn’t pick sides based on any scientific info, and we all know that arguing the science and data doesn’t swing them back.

        All too true Jo.

        And when both sides of politics have their claws firmly in the opportunities presented by the Climate Emergency, there is little chance of getting the truth out so that reason can prevail.

        Scientists “know” that human origin CO2 cannot and does not create Global Warming but that truth cannot be allowed out of the cage or the whole money making scheme will collapse.

        The control by Elites manifests itself in many ways such as the long running CAGW scheme and the damaging togetherness of the European Union and getting out from under might be close to impossible: but we have to keep trying.

        One point worth drilling into, and messaging loudly is the chaos-certainty-modeling issue.
        Climate (like weather) IS a process with so many chaotic subprocesses in it (many interlinked, or part of feedback subsystems), and statistically averaging this chaos does not give a worthwhile answer or modeled certainty (especially when proper initialization conditions are ignored).
        There can be no progress in climate analysis while a good understanding of chaos is all but ignored, and therefore there can be NO certainty in modeled climate projections.

        A good (minimal math) explanation of chaos and certainty may be the place to start, or maybe just butterflies. :-)

      KK You clearly have no idea of technology.
      Thermodynamics and Heat Transfer are engineering subjects which no so-called climate scientists understands. Heat transfer was already being used by engineers in the first smelting of metals, the Romans used it for heating of water and houses. Engineers used in the beginning of the industrial revolution for steam engines. The first theories of Thermodynamics was written by the engineer Lazare Carnot around 1800. Electricity and computers were developed and produced by engineers. The word scientist only date to about 1850. No scientist has developed or produced anything. So-called climate scientists are supporters of a scam for their own benefit. There is no factual theory behind it or anything engineering that can be done about natural climate change.

        It ends on a real note but not sure of the purpose of the rest of it.

        Very definitely, there is No scientific or thermodynamic reality to the Man Made Global Warming and death by incineration due to CO2 meme that is used to enslave us and rob us.

      I do a good bit on the science for CFACT, as do some others, like Joe Bastardi. At the moment I am working on the lack of scientific support for claims of systemic racism. The pattern of groundless alarmism is identical to climate change.

        I have determined that the US statistics showing racism in police killings are bogus. On a per arrest basis blacks are actually significantly less likely to be killed by police than whites. But the people shouting racism are no more interested in reality than those shouting climate catastrophe.

    Climate Hustle I was available as an mp4 on the Internet Archive https://archive.org/details/ClimateHustle from 2017-09-13. 15,911 Views to date.

      I like the DVD idea.

      I bought the DVD for Martin Durkin’s “The Great Global Warming Swindle”.

      I asked my spouse as a special favour to sit and watch it with me. She reluctantly agreed. At the end she said she enjoyed it and that she now understands my position on Global Warming (and is inclined to agree). So I think that was a great investment. It is still topical and relevant.

    Costs have to be covered. Sheeple need to watch. This needs clever marketing. The world needs truthful information. An argument about banning it could create controversy (great free publicity) We, seekers of data and empirical science should donate so this can go free to air to an audience that has been stimulated. Most of the gullible are simple victims of their apathy. The noisy alarmists have vested interests and or are oportunists. Let’s create, “What the hell is this about?” A great start is, “Hear what leading scientists have found!” I find sheeple fascinated, annoyed at the swindle and grateful for learning where to see original data. Thanks Bob Carter. To get it started, “Scientits agree is a LIE!”

        Wood and biofuels have been around for centuries so hardly a new discovery. There are essentially no living old growth forests as the wood was used as fuel and building material and whale populations are recovering after being decimated for their oil during the mid 1800s.

      Making hydrogen from biomass is seen as a renewable resource, at this stage its only a pipe dream.

      10

      • #
        Chad

        Making hydrogen from any source economically is a pipe dream !
        Currently it costs >$10 kg to produce, more to keep it stored , and not very efficient when used as a power source, !
        The economics are a joke , but for some reason the media keep refering to “Cheap Hydrogen” ??.
        But now this …

        The Morrison government has picked five technologies that will receive prioritised support under its Technology Roadmap launched on Tuesday, a plan which includes no new emissions reduction targets but which it supposed to form the basis of its climate and energy policy.

        Federal energy and emissions reduction minister Angus Taylor launched the Technology Roadmap during a speech to the National Press Club in Canberra on Tuesday, with the focus firmly on technologies that favour fossil fuels, farmers and big energy users such as steel and aluminium users.

        The Technology Roadmap is the latest energy policy from the Coalition, which has gone through more than 20 iterations during seven years of government, and continues its trend of preferring to direct taxpayer funding into preferred technologies, rather than policies that place a price on emissions.

        “Let’s be clear – there are only two ways to reduce emissions,” Taylor said in a speech to the National Press Club on Tuesday.

        “You either suppress emissions intensive economic activities – usually through some version of taxation – or you improve them. There is no third way. Australia can’t and shouldn’t damage its economy to reduce emissions
        Taylor said that the government will focus on five priority technologies that will receive targeted government investment, being “clean” hydrogen, energy storage, low carbon steel and aluminium, carbon capture and storage, and soil carbon. .”

          Or, you realise the futility of reducing CO2 emissions and Paris Agreement impositions, and then consider the Kyoto Agreement that Australia signed and achieved the emissions targets, one of very few signatory nations that did. Then wonder about the IPCC resistance to Australia applying Kyoto credits for Paris Agreement.

          So do what most other nations are doing and ignore Paris, get on with nation building and obtaining low cost electricity and gas for all consumers but most importantly, businesses, manufacturing industry. Use the abundance of quality Australian coal that is exported to the countries ignoring Paris. Require electricity suppliers to operate on a level playing field regardless of what technology they use. Allow free market capitalism to choose winners and losers.

          And stop throwing taxpayer’s monies at projects that are virtue signalling exercises that no astute business operator would waste money on.

          Taylor told the Press Club ….. the government will intervene into the market if Liddell is closed.

          “There is no doubt that existing, proven technologies like coal, gas, solar and wind will play important roles in Australia’s energy future,”

          “The Government will continue to invest in mature technologies where there is a clear market failure, like a shortage of dispatchable generation.”

            Plus lead at Port Pirie and all other smelting. Turning oxides into metals in every case means using carbon to take away the oxygen, so CO2. That takes us back to the stone age.

              Bit late, I thought they used coal to put carbon into it, steel is iron and carbon. Oxygen (100%) is used in furnaces to feed the process for an exothermic reaction. I don’t do Iron so little knowledge of the smelt process.
              Generally Lead and Zinc are sulphides as flotation is the primary means of collection of the minerals, you can’t float oxides. You can chemically convert oxides back but this is to allow concentration via flotation and its expensive plus nasty chemicals.
              You can smelt oxides but they have to be concentrated first for the $$$$.

      Andrews has clearly surpassed Vidkun Quisling in turpitude.

      This arrangement is way beyond the scale of handing state forests and national parks to correctly aligned political groups.

      These must be the authorised officers who’ll be able to discern who is to be locked up without going before a court as described in the latest addition to the covid omnibus legislation which is being whizzed through parliament without basic scrutiny. Those minded to may like to browse the Kable case at https://www.ruleoflaw.org.au/kables-case-and-the-rule-of-law/ to get a sense of the skulduggery to which Victorians are being subjected.

      Who needs courts when the leader is benevolent and has taken delivery of a shipment of three hundred AR-15 thirty-shot semi-automatic rifles?

      Maybe the state of Victoria has already been sold to the PRC and my jest about being the latest autonomous province is just another unannounced fait accompli.

        At Michael Smith News, a group of lawyers have written to Vic Gov about the legislation …

        “We are deeply concerned by the passage of the COVID-19 Omnibus (Emergency Measures) and Other Acts Amendment Bill 2020 (Bill) through the Legislative Assembly.

        Emergency powers already allow authorised officers under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 (Vic) to detain people and to restrict movement.

        The Bill would expand the emergency powers to allow an authorised officer to detain:

        • any person that the authorised officer reasonably believes is likely to fail to comply with an emergency direction and is a close contact of a person diagnosed with COVID-19 (or a person diagnosed with COVID-19) not given clearance from self-isolation;

        • for so long as the authorised officer reasonably believes the person in detention is likely to fail to comply with an emergency direction.

        The Bill would also allow any person the Secretary considered appropriate to be authorised to exercise emergency powers. There would be no requirement that persons authorised be police officers, or even public servants.

        Authorising citizens to detain their fellow citizens on the basis of a belief that the detained person is unlikely to comply with emergency directions by the “authorised” citizens is unprecedented, excessive and open to abuse.

        We call on the Legislative Council to amend the Bill, or to vote against it……. “

    Government must compulsarily acquire liddell. AGL may then respect sustainable power. Currently AGL intend to be totally irresponsible to power requirements when it is dark and still. I will not trade with AGL if they paid me. People need reliiabe power. In some cases for respirators or similar. Now is the time to act rather than panic too late. The grid is ugly but does not kill birds,bats and insects. Solar farms prevent photosynthesis. 13 year old panels can need expensive removal of toxic waste.

    Still looking for any evidence of and increasing Tropical Tropospheric Hotspot (TTH) or increasing Downwelling Longwave Radiation (DLR).

    These are the very signature of increasing warming due greenhouse gasses, and so if the TTH or DLR cannot be found, then any warming is NOT due to CO2.

    Has anyone found any evidence of these?

    I am just watching Climate Hustle Part 1. I will watch Part 2 tomorrow.

    So far I have been told:
    1. 97% of Climate Scientists (or any scientists) do not agree that CO2 is causing Global Warming,
    2. The Climate is a non linear chaotic system that does not respond in a linear fashion to a CO2 control knob
    3. Vostok Ice cores show CO2 lags temperature by 800 years (on average),
    4. Some NASA scientists are appalled and embarrassed by James Hansen
    5. Sea level rise is not accelerating,
    6. Temperature records are adjusted to cool the past, creating a false impression that the Earth is warming significantly
    7. Arctic sea ice and polar bears are doing ok,
    8. Claims that extreme events such as; droughts, floods, storms and hurricanes, fires etc are increasing in frequency and severity are not supported by evidence.

    Nothing new to readers of this blog, but usefully packed together for viewing or reference.
