The green jobs myth -

Nice of the Post to notice.

"Now let's consider job losses. It takes one worker today roughly 15 minutes to read a single meter. So in a day, a meter reader can scan about 30 meters, or about 700 meters a month. Meters are typically read once a month, making it the base period to calculate meter-reading jobs. Reading a million meters every month engages about 1,400 personnel. In five years, 20 million manually read meters are expected to disappear, taking with them some 28,000 meter-reading jobs.

In other words, instead of creating jobs, smart metering will probably result in net job destruction. This should not be surprising because the main method of making the electrical grid "smart" is by automating its functions. Automation by definition obviates the need for people. "

Democrats took over the House in 2006 on a campaign promise to "end a culture of corruption" in Congress that they blamed on 12 years of Republican rule."

Meanwhile, only 28 per cent believe that the next government should legislate to make people behave in a “greener” way."

Somali woman can claim benefits even if she a 'burden on social assistance' after landmark EU ruling

Pass this on to everyone in your address book.

“Standing proudly with her arm draped over her 36in television, this is the Somali woman who must be given a council house even though she has no right to live in Britain.

Nimco Hassan Ibrahim - who lives with her four children on benefit handouts - was granted the right to the home by EU judges yesterday because she was once married to a Danish citizen who briefly worked in this country. “

Britain is no longer in charge of it’s affairs and is being run by the EU. How do you feel about that?

And think about this next time you go to work busting your ass.

“The landmark EU judgment opens the door for hundreds of thousands of unemployed foreigners to claim both state benefits and council or housing association homes.

In particular, it means migrant families from Poland and other Eastern European countries will for the first time have a right to council housing and state benefits even if they have worked for only a brief period in Britain. “

The important thing to remember here is that, Brown and Labour are doing this deliberately. They want “Britain” to disappear into the EU superstate.

And keep this in mind next time you’re up the town and think about shopping in Shelter.

“The pair came to Britain seven years ago. After eight months working as a bus driver, Mr Yusuf began living on benefits. When they were stopped in March 2004, he left the country.

Mr Yusuf's departure ended Mrs Ibrahim's right to stay in the UK and her right to receive benefits, but six years later, she lives on £1,000 a month through child tax credits, child benefits and child disability allowance.

Her accommodation is paid for and she also uses the NHS, even though she is not entitled to free medical care and has no insurance cover.

Her three-year legal battle was funded by the charity Shelter.

You’ve lost your country. How does that make you feel? Tell your MP how you feel.

Have a good day at work paying for Mrs. Ibrahim courtesy of Labour.

UN Eco-Commissars on Bali – Again

"Now they’re at it again. The UN Environment Program, which is based in Nairobi, is convening a set of meetings this week – not in Nairobi, or New York, but at the same Bali beach resort (and convention center) where they sacrificed all that time for the greater good in 2007. Never mind the UN’s continuing campaign — in the face of its crumbling “climate science” — to restrict and control carbon emissions. Yet again, we are asked to believe the UN deserves special exemptions from its own preachings. Its conferees are jetting to Bali for the greater good of all the little folk, whose job is merely to pay the bills for such pleasures, and live with any resulting rationing and regulation. According to the Jakarta Post, some 1,500 people from 192 countries are expected to attend this shindig — where UNEP claims that envoys of some 140 governments will be present. The pre-session events (the UN goes in for a lot of those on Bali) have already begun."

Gordon Brown in new bullying claim as ANOTHER employee emails helpline


£Gordon Brown was facing fresh allegations about his treatment of Downing Street staff today after it was revealed one worker has contacted an anti-bullying charity to complain about him.

A formal retraction was required, rather than a correction, because the errors undermined the study's conclusion."

How to stop bullying at school.

All of my kids were bullied at primary school and in their first year at secondary school. It only happened once and I stopped it cold! Here's how I did it.

You first have to know your child is being bullied. That sounds self evident but you'd be surprised how hard it can be. None of my kids came to me first - they were too scared. My kids weren't scared of me, they were threatened by the bullies into not telling.

The first signs I noticed were not wanting to go to school. This was followed by feigned illness. Other sings were getting into trouble in the classroom. All of my kids are good kids and good students. Their behavior was out of character. That is your first important clue.

I talked to them and let them know they were not in trouble, that I was on their side and I would personally ensure that the bullying would stop. The last part is the most important and you have to mean it and let them know you damn sure mean it.

Next, make and appointment to speak to the teacher and headmaster together with your child. Your child must be present! They will witness how you take control and handle the situation. It will give them confidence that you will stop the bullying.

Start by letting the teacher and headmaster know that your child is being bullied. Give them the name of the bully and listen carefully to what they say next. This is critical. In every single instance of bullying the school officials would roll their eyes and say something like, "oh, we've had problems with him or her before". Or, "yes, we're aware of the problem with that student". They are falling into your trap.

Next, ask them if they have plans, policies and procedures to stop bullying. Watch as their chest fills out, a smile comes over their face and they say with pride, "yes we have a very successful campaign of anti-bullying and do not tolerate it".

Then ask them, what's the test that your plans, policies and procedures are working? Now watch as their chest falls, a blank comes over their face and they mutter, "huh?". Tell them, the proof that their working plans are working is that the bullying stops.

Now tell them that as your child is being bullied by a known bully who they are currently dealing with, it's obvious that their plans, policies and procedures are failing - bullying is happening on their watch! Watch now as their faces look like they've been hit by a brick.

Now it's time for you to take charge. Remind them that there is a three way contract in the education process. I make sure my child does their homework, is clean, fed and attends all classes. My child does their homework and attends school. The school teaches my child and provides a safe learning environment for them. Point out to them that they are the only ones in this three way contract who is failing.

Since it is they who are failing, tell them this is how it's going to work from now on. Tell them your child has a mobile phone, you have a mobile phone and you have the schools phone number (get the headmasters mobile number if you can). Tell them from now on, if your child gets bullied your child will call you immediately, even in class and you will in turn call the school immediately. The will object to your child calling during class. Tell them you don't care. As they are failing to protect your child, your child has the right to call for help. Let them know that this will continue until the bullying stops. Let them know, that in short, you will make their life hell until they do their job and protect your child.

Be firm in all of this; be mad even! Let them know you are serious and mean business. Also, let them know that you will go to the police, seek legal advice, go to the school board or even the press. In short, you are going to do everything humanly possible to stop the bullying.

In every single case this has worked for me. My kids were bullied just once in primary and once in first year of secondary school.

I hope this helps.

Your children have the right not to be bullied and the schools are failing in their job. Don't take it! Make them do their job!

U.S. Press Digs Into IPCC Story

"Digs" is a bit strong. More like kicking sand on a beach. The CJR compares the anemic reporting in the US with the "all over the news" in the UK reporting.

"It is this kind of detailed, intellectually honest (even technologically innovative) reporting that news outlets like The New York Times should be striving for with their coverage of the recent controversies related to the IPCC. Coverage in the U.S. still feels like the proverbial tale of blind men examining different quarters of an elephant. Readers need the point-by-point master narrative. How exactly did this crisis in public confidence crystallize over the last month or so? How did various criticisms of the IPCC roll out? Which of those are legitimate? Which false? And what, if anything, can be done to improve the IPCC’s work?

It is not a story that can be told without a significant amount of context, but news outlets have a responsibility to get it right. If that means sacrificing the front-page thought and running a twelve-part series online instead, so be it."

Nuclear power aids White House climate push

"WASHINGTON, Feb 16 (Reuters) - The White House is working hard to advance climate change legislation in Congress and hopes an announcement to jumpstart the nuclear power industry will appeal to Republican skeptics, a top adviser to President Barack Obama said."

Where are all those celebs and rockers who were againstg nuclear power back in 1980?

"In addition to raising public consciousness about the dangers of nuclear power, the 1979 series of star-studded anti-nuclear concerts at Madison Square Garden were a significant event both musically and historically. The shows were immortalized in a feature film and on this 2 CD set. Among those featured on the album are such '70s soft-rock icons as Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, James Taylor, Carly Simon, the Doobie Brothers, and Crosby, Stills and Nash, along with Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Ry Cooder, and Gil Scott-Heron for a token dose of grit. Inevitably, Springsteen's "Devil with the Blue Dress Medley" steals the show, but otherwise No Nukes doubles as both a handy '70s-rock sampler and a historical keepsake. --Scott Schinder"

Well rockers, here's your chance to get a second bite of the cherry. Or, are you for nuclear power now?

"It was not Private Eye, or the BBC or the News of the World, but a retired electrical engineer in Northampton, David Holland, whose freedom-of-information requests caused the Climategate scientists to break the law, according to the Information Commissioner. By contrast, it has so far attracted little attention that the leaked emails of Climategate include messages from reporters obsequiously seeking ammunition against the sceptics. Other emails have shown reporters meekly changing headlines to suit green activists, or being threatened with ostracism for even reporting the existence of a sceptical angle: ‘Your reportage is very worrisome to most climate scientists,’ one normally alarmist reporter was told last year when he slipped briefly off message. ‘I sense that you are about to experience the “Big Cutoff” from those of us who believe we can no longer trust you, me included.’"

The Guardian Picks Its Heroes

WiTricity | Wireless Electricity The New Standard

"So, we are finally there! And I can’t tell you how happy this clip made me from the second I saw the title of it. It’s environmentally safe, it’s non hazardous as it’s not radio waves but magnetic fields that power up your gadgets. And the best thing of it all is that it’s cordless. YES! I bet almost all of you have a snake nest under your desk with entangled cords that is just in the way and also looks bad."

Can't wait!

BBC tells news staff to embrace social media

"BBC news journalists have been told to use social media as a primary source of information by Peter Horrocks, the new director of BBC Global News who took over last week. He said it was important for editorial staff to make better use of social media and become more collaborative in producing stories. "

This could be interesting. Imagine BBC reporters reading social media sites and finding out the rest of the world doesn't share their far left wing views.

IPCC Science Scandals Aren’t New

"All this criticism is valid and long overdue. But the biggest scandal in the IPCC's closet remains its 1995 claim to finding a “discernible human influence” on the earth’s changing climate. Lead author Ben Santer of the Lawrence Livermore government laboratory inserted those words—after the IPCC’s consulting scientists had signed off on a draft that specifically said no such “human fingerprint” had been found!

Santer deliberately reversed the meaning of the whole IPCC 1995 report—and the trajectory of every IPCC document since. He claimed the rewrite was justified by two of his own studies. However, Santer’s papers “cherry-picked” the earth’s temperature record from 1963–1987, ignoring the earlier and later temperatures that didn’t confirm the Greenhouse theory! Thus the IPCC’s whole claim of a “discernible human influence” remains without scientific support to this day."

Climategate - goodbye hockey stick

"Further, he [Phil Jones] acknowledged that, far from being unprecedented, the rate of warming in the modern era is nearly identical to prior warming periods. In other words, goodbye, hockey stick:"

Immigration: a plan to alter the nation's soul

"But as it turns out, the policy was motivated by something far more radical and fundamental than any of this. The full text of the draft policy paper composed in 2000 by a Home Office research unit – the gist of which had already been made public by a former Labour adviser – was released last week under Freedom of Information rules. Properly understood, it is political dynamite. What it states quite unequivocally was that mass immigration was being encouraged at least as much for "social objectives" as for economic ones. Migration was intended specifically to alter the demographic and cultural pattern of the country: to produce by force majeure the changes in attitude that the Labour government saw itself as representing."

BBC News - Climate debate not settled

I bet the BBC almost choked writing that.

"But he agreed that two periods in recent times had experienced similar warming. And he agreed that the debate had not been settled over whether the Medieval Warm Period was warmer than the current period. "

You have to love this.

"He said "sceptics" who doubted his climate record should compile their own dataset from material publicly available in the US."

Now why would he recommend people use US records instead of his own UK CRU data? Oh, that's right, he destroyed that data!

"The major datasets mostly agree," he said."

But we've no way of knowing that Jones since you destroyed yours.

Now this is turning into a farce. Here's Jones "the dog ate my homework" excuse.

"His colleagues said that keeping a paper trail was not one of Professor Jones' strong points. Professor Jones told BBC News: "There is some truth in that.

"We do have a trail of where the (weather) stations have come from but it's probably not as good as it should be," he admitted.

"That's similar with the American datasets. There were technical reasons for this, with changing data from different countries. There's a continual updating of the dataset. Keeping track of everything is difficult. Some countries will do lots of checking on their data then issue improved data so it can be very difficult. We have improved but we have to improve more."

It's very hard to keep track of when you destroy it.

Nick Clegg sacks 'Jihad Jenny' Tonge but doesn't withdraw the whip. Why the hell not?

"Baroness Tonge – “Jihad Jenny” – earlier this week told the Jewish Chronicle that there should be an investigation into claims that Israeli relief workers in Haiti were harvesting the organs of the dead. And now Nick Clegg has sacked her from her job as Lib Dem health spokesman in the Lords. But he hasn’t withdrawn the whip.

Why the hell not? Says Clegg: “My view is that a number of things Jenny Tonge has said are irresponsible and offensive but I do not believe she is anti-Semitic or racist. If I did, she wouldn’t be a Liberal Democrat.”

I will leave readers to make up their own minds whether calling for an investigation to determine the truth of a version of the blood libel is anti-Semitic. But I couldn’t help chuckle at Clegg’s naive belief that there’s no room for racists in the Liberal Democrats."

Now you know why the BBC is such a big proponent of global warming. Their defict pension fund is invested in it.

"The corporation is under investigation after being inundated with complaints that its editorial coverage of climate change is biased in favour of those who say it is a man-made phenomenon. The £8billion pension fund is likely to come under close scrutiny over its commitment to promote a low-carbon economy while struggling to reverse an estimated £2billion deficit. Concerns are growing that BBC journalists and their bosses regard disputed scientific theory that climate change is caused by mankind as “mainstream” while huge sums of employees’ money is invested in companies whose success depends on the theory being widely accepted. The BBC is the only media organisation in Britain whose pension fund is a member of the Institutional Investors Group on Climate Change, which has more than 50 members across Europe."

The (False) Gospel According to John

"The administration has spent the past two weeks telling anyone who will listen, including our enemies overseas (whom Abdulmutallab apparently is flipping on), that Abdulmutallab’s family convinced him to start cooperating six weeks after he was Mirandized. Indeed, this is when Brennan himself writes that “[t]he most important breakthrough occurred.” How, then, could Abdulmutallab have been “thoroughly interrogated” immediately after he was arrested if “the most important breakthrough” came six weeks later, and only after his family intervened? This glaring contradiction goes unaddressed."

Drillgate: Internal Emails Shows Obama Team Lying to Public

The Guardian is trying give the impression that they are leading an independent investigation into Climagegate. But, listen to this.

"It is hard to believe that tree trunks dragged from frozen bogs in Siberia could undermine the argument about man-made climate change. But that is the claim that has been made by sceptics in recent months."

Interesting though, how the warmists were quite happy to use those same frozen tree trunks to bolster their claim of global warming. Can't have it both ways folks.

We're living in broken Britain, say most voters

"Nearly three fifths of voters say that they hardly recognise the country they are living in, while 42 per cent say they would emigrate if they could.

But worries over the pace of social change and dislocation are balanced by the belief that life will get better, according to the survey undertaken at the weekend.

It suggests that 70 per cent believe that society is now broken, echoing a Conservative campaign theme of the past two years, while 68 per cent say people who play by the rules get a raw deal and 82 per cent think it is time for a change. "

Top British scientist says UN panel is losing credibility

"Robert Watson, chief scientist at Defra, the environment ministry, who chaired the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) from 1997 to 2002, was speaking after more potential inaccuracies emerged in the IPCC’s 2007 benchmark report on global warming.

The most important is a claim that global warming could cut rain-fed north African crop production by up to 50% by 2020, a remarkably short time for such a dramatic change. The claim has been quoted in speeches by Rajendra Pachauri, the IPCC chairman, and by Ban Ki-moon, the UN secretary-general.

This weekend Professor Chris Field, the new lead author of the IPCC’s climate impacts team, told The Sunday Times that he could find nothing in the report to support the claim. The revelation follows the IPCC’s retraction of a claim that the Himalayan glaciers might all melt by 2035."

Climate change emails between scientists reveal flaws in peer review

"But a close reading of the emails hacked from the University of East Anglia in November exposes the real process of everyday science in lurid detail.

Many of the emails reveal strenuous efforts by the mainstream climate scientists to do what outside observers would regard as censoring their critics. And the correspondence raises awkward questions about the effectiveness of peer review – the supposed gold standard of scientific merit – and the operation of the UN's top climate body, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)."

Climate scientists tried to hide flaws in a key study

Wow! The far left wing Guardian is on a roll. I guess the Times and Telegraph coverage finally got to them. When will MSM in the US get on board?

"But the argument over the weather stations, and how it affects an important set of data on global warming, has led to accusations of scientific fraud and may yet result in a significant revision of a scientific paper that is still cited by the UN's top climate science body.

It also further calls into question the integrity of the scientist at the centre of the scandal over hacked climate emails, the director of the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit (CRU), Dr Phil Jones. The emails suggest that he helped to cover up flaws in temperature data from China that underpinned his research on the strength of recent global warming.

The Guardian has learned that crucial data obtained by American scientists from Chinese collaborators cannot be verified because documents containing them no longer exist. And what data is available suggests that the findings are fundamentally flawed."

Time for Gore to give back that Oscar and Nobel Prize.

Leaked climate change emails scientist 'hid' data flaws

"Phil Jones, the beleaguered British climate scientist at the centre of the leaked emails controversy, is facing fresh claims that he sought to hide problems in key temperature data on which some of his work was based.

A Guardian investigation of thousands of emails and documents apparently hacked from the University of East Anglia's climatic research unit has found evidence that a series of measurements from Chinese weather stations were seriously flawed and that documents relating to them could not be produced."

And yet I daily see government and NGO commercials claiming man made global warming.

BBC - Judgement day for public trust in science

Nice to see the BBC reporting something on climategate.

"And then there's "glaciergate" - evidence that the speed of Himalayan glacier melt has been seriously misrepresented in a report from the Intergovernmental Panel of Climate Change (IPCC).

It is profoundly worrying that it took three years for this issue to emerge, especially since the IPCC proudly proclaims its reports to be "peer reviewed", and therefore trustworthy. "

Oh the irony! The BBC has been pushing global warming all those years and was too busy burying any information that contraicted its view.

"We were not paying close attention in this area," commission Chairman Thomas Kean testified at the hearing into intelligence lapses prior to the Christmas Day attempted airliner bombing. Kean noted that Obama has instead been focused on such issues as health care and cap-and-trade.

The two men have historically been circumspect about making politically charged statements, but they painted a portrait of an intelligence community, America's first line of defense against its jihadi enemies, that is devolving into disarray under Obama's leadership--or lack thereof.

"It's my impression that the intelligence community is new, relatively new to the president," Hamilton said, adding, "I'm pretty strong in my thought that he has to step in pretty hard here. Or some of these tensions that have surfaced will exacerbate."
