Ray Evans: Thank God for Carbon

From the Australian Conservative, January 13, 2009

AC | January 13 2009

Thank God for Carbon is the title of a forthcoming Lavoisier Tract by Ray Evans. The publication will be launched by Senator Cory Bernardi in Adelaide on 27 January. Here is an excerpt from the overview:

Despite the gravity of the economic crisis arising from the collapse of financial and credit markets in the US and from thence to Europe and to the rest of the world, the Rudd Government continues to proceed with drafting legislation which will require emitters of carbon dioxide, notably coal-fired power stations, to purchase permits to continue to operate. This scheme of decarbonisation is based on the notion that anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide (the consequence of burning fossil fuels) have caused, and will continue to cause, global warming. Because ‘carbon’ fits more easily into newspaper headlines than does ‘carbon dioxide’, carbon has been substituted for carbon dioxide in political discourse, and has become the target of legislation.

Whilst co2 levels are at record highs, the world is no warmer today than it was in 1998 and a recent cooling trend has begun. Surely natural forces must therefore have a larger impact on the earth’s climate than human C02. What looked good in theory is clearly not happening in the real world.

Whilst millions upon millions are being squandered on trying to stop climate change, something we don’t have much, if any, control of, there are other pressing global issues which need serious urgent attention right NOW!

The issue in Zimbabwe is a case in point. The world idly stands by whilst Robert Mugabe and his goons wreak havoc on the lives of many innocent people forcing them to flee Zimbabwe. Some of those who fled from Zimbabwe to South Africa recently got the treatment as depicted in these photos by those with anti-foreigner sentiments.

If Zimbabwe was an oil rich country, would the West still be standing idly by?

Climate changes, always has and always will.

IN PRAISE OF CARBON – THE PRIMAL ELEMENT

From NZ Climate Science

“There is no scientific theory linking carbon dioxide to the ‘runaway’ global warming that is the basis of the calamitous predictions. The contribution of the gas to the making of a comfortable planet by the greenhouse effect is well understood, modest and self-limiting.

It is only turned into a terror by computer models. These are worthless; depending as they do on extensive guesswork about the ill-understood mechanisms and interactions involved in climate, and involving so many tunable parameters and feedback factors that they could produce any desired result by appropriate tweaking. A quarter of a century ago, before science came under firm bureaucratic control, such models would have been laughed out of court.”  John Brignell’s brilliant summary.   LINK

Mobile phones to track carbon footprinty

Carbon Diem's mobile phone carbon calculator Carbon Diem’s mobile phone carbon calculator

Keeping track of your carbon footprint could become as simple as slipping a mobile phone in your pocket: a London-based start-up company has developed software for mobile phones that uses global positioning satellites to work out automatically whether you are walking, driving or flying and then calculate your impact on the environment.

Carbon Diem’s inventors claim that, by using GPS to measure the speed and pattern of movement, their algorithm can identify the mode of transport being used. It can therefore calculate the amount of carbon dioxide that a journey has emitted into the atmosphere – without any need for input from the traveller.

Recycling causes global warming!

Australia’s largest recycling company has warned that the Government’s proposed emissions trading scheme would force it to immediately close two recycling and paper manufacturing facilities with the direct loss of 160 jobs.

Visy, renowned as one of the nation’s greenest companies, has slammed the proposed scheme’s cost of $20 on a tonne of emissions, in its response to the Government’s emissions trading green paper.

“The CPRS (Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme) does not recognise the carbon benefits from recycling, leading to severe collateral impacts on Australia’s domestic recycling/remanufacturing industries.

I'm bad!
