Is New Zealand becoming the next Denier Nation?
In the last couple of weeks Australia has been inundated with climate realist news on the internet, in newspapers and on TV. These articles have revolved mainly around Professor Ian Plimer’s new book “Heaven and Earth” (which is selling like HOT cakes in Australia) and reports that the Antarctic is in fact growing.
Now we have New Zealand following in hot pursuit with the launch of “Air Con” by Ian Wishart and climate realist articles in the NZ Herald below:
Ian Wishart’s Air Con
TV NZ interview
Journalist and author Ian Wishart has just released his latest book, Air Con, in which he argues the media and powerful “green” lobby groups perpetuate the myth that climate change is man-made
NZ glacier findings upset climate theory
New Zealand Herald, Saturday May 02, 2009
Research by three New Zealand scientists may have solved the mystery of why glaciers behave differently in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres
“The New Zealand findings point to the importance of regional shifts in wind directions and sea surface temperatures,” he said.
Regional weather patterns such as the El Nino Southern Oscillation were superimposed on the global climate trends reflected in the behaviour of glaciers.
We need to be listening to science
New Zealand Herald, Friday May 01, 2009
The Sun was more active during much of the 20th century than it was for the previous 1000 years. Now, however, the trend appears to have reversed.
Solar activity is exceptionally low and there is no sign that this may change in the near future.
Predictions of future climate are usually based on global climate models. Up until now, these models have failed to consider variable energy from the Sun. The significance of this cannot be overstated as the Sun is the only source of energy to power Earth’s climate, so all global climate change is directly or indirectly linked to it.
