Subject: Time for the truth about the “Great Global Warming Hoax” to get a public hearing?
It is now a year since I explained to you and PM Ardern about your fraud, and explained the reasons why you should cease and desist. I have summarised the position outlined in this email in a single page as per the last (Word) document attached above for circulation to the news media. This lengthy email that follows, substantiates my short statement on such an extremely complicated topic.
My reason for writing this email to you is to ensure that you have the facts at your fingertips to avoid New Zealand becoming further embroiled in the “Great Global Warming” fraud, which is nothing more nor less than a globalist conspiracy orchestrated under the auspices of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (“UN IPCC”). But then, I suspect you already know this. The fact the conspiracy is global does not in any way excuse your conduct. By your actions, you and your government are already complicit, and you can no longer rely on the UN IPCC.
The “Great Global Warming” fraud now has an eerie similarity to the “South Sea Bubble” in the following respects…
- They were each the largest frauds in recorded history at the time they occurred and then, by the time they were revealed, caused great heart-break.
- Both frauds relied on the remoteness of the populace from the facts on the ground. With the South Sea Bubble, it was geographical remoteness. With the Great Global Warming fraud it is the scientific remoteness mixed with complexity of the fraud and the interwoven, related conspiracy at the United Nations (“UN”), as they attempt to hype a global emergency to justify their takeover of global government…all in the shaddows.
- In both cases the perpetrators have had an incomplete understanding of the true facts that made, or now makes discovery inevitable.
In fairness to those at the centre of the Great Global Warming fraud (whether they and you deserve fairness or not), they/you did not initially have access to all the data. Furthermore, the very few complicit scientists involved at the outset in 1988 then fell under the sway of politicians progressively including such as (in sequence) John Holdren, Al Gore, Helen Clark, Barrack Obama and even David Attenborough – all should have known better, with different degrees of ignorance or motivation, as they lent their reputations and legacies to this fraud in order to profit from it – either in terms of political power, or for financial benefit, or for both.
This shambles evokes the memory of Dwight D. Eisenhower who warned upon his retirement as US President, against the use of political sponsorship for the scientific community who are then funded to distort science for political purposes (as first happened with the Trofim Lysenko fiasco in 20th Century Russia). What is unusual about your fraud is that it is supported by globalist businessmen and financiers as well as a significant element of the climate science community.
Retired Professor Nils Axel Moerner of Sweden calls it what it is. I found his frustration with the lies contained in the link below rather like my own. I can now, at last, easily prove that he is right in almost every respect….
The Professor is as unaware (as you seem to be) that this fraud is about to be unmasked for public distaste by the speed at which the latest Grand Solar Minimum is advancing. While outfits like NASA and NOAA still tend to downplay the implications of the new and disastrously weak 11-year solar cycle number 25, their web sites contain the evidence that it is happening as I write this. Disillusionment day for your public will likely be sometime in early 2020.
So far this year there have only been 11 sunspots. The public can watch this looming solar minimum threat on a daily basis at www.spaceweather.com if they have the time and inclination.
NASA suggests that the number of sun spots in sc25 will drop to 111, which is an extremely low level of solar activity. However, the Russian and British scientists claim they will not exceed 50! The first is on the level of the Dalton Minimum. The second is the level of the Maunder Minimum. Either will prove disastrous to global agriculture and destroy your fraud as well.
It is now proven that the “modern warm period” has nothing to do with increasing levels of atmospheric CO2 (which we humans do give a boost to), but has been solely caused by a huge spike in solar activity…the greatest for 4,000 years.
As a result of scientific progress, we are now in a position to prove that what you are doing with the NZ zero carbon legislation is a fraudulent enterprise. It must now be stopped by either your free will, or by court injunction.
- The vilification of carbon dioxide (“CO2”) as a pollutant is just one of many essential limbs of this fraud.
CO2 is essential for all life on earth. That is a scientific fact. All plant life relies on CO2 for the process of converting light into the plant sugars that support all other terrestrial life on earth (animals, humans etc) and, should the atmospheric concentration of CO2 drop below 150ppm, every complex carbon based life form on this planet will likely become extinct. Plants actually do better when they are given access to a concentration that is between 1,000 and 2,000ppm. The current concentration is only 415ppm. This atmospheric deficit is routinely compensated for by farmers injecting bottled CO2 gas into their greenhouses.
Meantime you elect to wage war on CO2 and label it as “undesirable pollution” for UN IPCC’s own devious ends. They are of course conflicted, yet conceal their conflict of interest from the masses.
The evidence that shows increased concentrations of CO2 leads to the greening of the planet is contained in successive NASA satellite photos that are readily available to you and your advisers. This greening has occurred primarily because the atmospheric concentration of CO2 has increased from 280ppm at the end of “The Little Ice Age” in 1850, to the current level of more than 400ppm as of today. If you were a true green you would find that good, not bad.
Plant growth experiments at various CO2 levels have also proven this fact as contained in the first “Word” attachment at the head of this email. This attachment shows the practical limitations of CO2 as a “greenhouse gas” that were the reasons why it’s possible impact on climate change was trialled and rejected by such eminent scientists as Professors Niels Bohr and Anders Angstrom some 100 years ago. Those reasons – discovered by actual experiments rather than by totally subjective theoretical modelling – haven’t changed. The only thing that changed was the arrival of the UN IPCC in 1989 and some biddable scientists who wanted to establish their new field of knowledge and scorned the older inter-linked evidence based earth sciences.
We humans can tolerate an atmospheric CO2 level up to at least 100 times greater than it is at present. Should you personally ever take ill and collapse, requiring CPR, any trained person could probably resuscitate you by “rescue breathing” with air containing 40,000ppm of CO2 and a reduced concentration of oxygen (of only about 16% of the air mixture). That is because we all breathe in anywhere between about 400ppm and 800ppm of CO2 and breathe out roughly 4% or 40,000ppm – thereby reducing the amount of oxygen that was inhaled by 20%.
The scientific record has shown that before the beginning of the Quaternary Ice Age the atmospheric levels of CO2 were considerably higher than today and the relentless sequence of natural sequestration of CO2 in rocks, soil and sea bed occurring during colder times over the last 500 million years considerably reduced the CO2 in the atmosphere and will almost inevitably mean for the future, that by the end of the next 90,000 year terrestrial ice age of the current Pleistocene era (or subsequent repeats of that cycle of ice ages and interglacial periods), the atmospheric concentration of CO2 could even fall back to, or fall further from the 180ppm at the end of the last ice age (12,000 years ago), to a much lower level and possibly even reach or breech the extinction threshold of 150ppm at some point.
So there is considerable hard evidence that human CO2 emissions which involve using and emitting sequestered carbon will actually help to restore a desirable atmospheric balance that is more suitable for all natural life on earth. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that! Unless you can prove that increased atmospheric CO2 has a significant effect on climate change, you should regard your criticism of this naturally occurring gas as a grave error, that is contrary to the best ideals of the green movement.
What needs to be dealt with, is to clean up real pollution rather than attempting to levy extortionate taxes based on deliberate lies.
- In 30 years there has never been any empirical evidence that variations in atmospheric CO2 cause any measurable change in earth’s climate.
Sure, we humans warm our surroundings by using many heat sources and fuels that provide us with comfort and wealth, but the claim that we alter the future climate is quite extraordinary …. and extraordinary scientific claims require extraordinary proof. Such proof has never been found – despite the wasting of billions of dollars on the ever more complex computer models. Sadly for the theories you espouse, there is ample proof that human and indeed total CO2 emissions have no measurable impact on climate and I itemise that proof below…
- The historical record from the empirical analysis of ice core samples taken from the depths of the Antarctic Ice Sheet at Vostok, and from Greenland has provided clear evidence that as earth’s temperature changes, the level of atmospheric CO2 then also changes after a delay of several hundred years. When temperatures rise, a rise in CO2 levels follows; then when temperatures fall, CO2 levels also fall. This is not only well accepted data, but the result is logical. The sun which supplies more than 99% of earth’s energy, heats the ocean more slowly than either the land or the atmosphere and the ocean releases its heat far more slowly. Water absorbs atmospheric CO2 when cold and releases it when the water is warmed. The ocean contains 50+ times the CO2 of the atmosphere, so when the ocean is warming it releases more CO2 into the atmosphere than it takes up; and when cooling it takes up more CO2 than it releases. The data underpins the Vostok evidence.
- During the last 100 years there has been clear evidence that the level of atmospheric CO2 has increased from around 300ppm to over 400ppm, and at no stage have the recordings at the US National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s (“NOAA’s)testing site in Hawaii (which both UN IPCC and sceptics accept as valid data) have ever fallen. Yet during the time from 1918 to 1940 the climate warmed, and then from 1945 to 1975 the climate cooled, and then from 1975 to 1998 the climate warmed again. From 1999 to 2015 the temperature did not increase by any measurable amount. Then in 2016 there was a spurt in warming due to the strong El Nino conditions, and then after that the temperature has fallen again – to the present. This shows that CO2 has had no appreciable effect, unless one changes the starting and finishing times used for the temperature comparison to manipulate the meaning of the data. In general, the world has emerged from the effects of “The Little Ice Age” and the solar cycles became appreciably more active – with the Total Solar Insolation (“TSI”) during the modern warm period higher than it has been for thousands of years. It is the sun that has caused the modern warming. There is no upturn in the number and severity of serious weather events and on the contrary there has even been a significant reduction in severe weather events since the late 1930’s. You wouldn’t know that to listen to the media.
2.3 The impact of the huge increase in solar activity underpins this evidence and accounts for the warming of the ocean and its current slow expansion.
- The reasons why human CO2 emissions cannot drive earth’s climate are now well known.
3.1 It is generally accepted by the UN IPCC that human CO2 emissions comprise only 4.3% of total CO2 emissions. Yet the presumption is made by the UN IPCC that human CO2 emissions drive 98% of climate change with no allowance for the variability over the 95.7% of natural CO2 emission effects. For example a warming sea alone will emit more CO2 than humans can influence from all activities. But to make their models work, the UN IPCC modellers even invent separate classes of CO2 molecules. First, they state that human influenced CO2 molecules do not dissipate, but instead only increase the level of residual atmospheric CO2. Second, they say only the CO2 emissions from natural causes do dissipate due to the requirements of vegetation etc. Of course this is junk science because there is no difference in the molecules, so any lay person can see through that. But whether we allow the UN IPCC to clutch at straws to support their UN sponsored fraud or not, we humans cannot affect climate change. Could King Canute turn back the tide?
3.2 Atmospheric CO2 molecules do not impact with more than an extremely narrow band-width of infra-red re-radiation emanating from earth’s surface/sea and even then, not fully. Water vapour on the other hand impacts twelve times the band width that CO2 does, and of that scope, for much of it, water vapour fully affects the re-radiation in some of the applicable band widths (As per the first attached (Word) document at the head of this email). The water vapour also has other effects because of its involvement in the cloud cover and with its ability to phase change between liquid, gas and solid with massive localised thermal effects that the UN IPCC modellers deliberately ignore. Not only that but water vapour is between 10 to 100 times as voluminous as CO2, depending on temperature and humidity. The suggestions that human CO2 emissions cause climate change is therefore somewhere between risible and ridiculous.
- The atmospheric concentration of CO2 was already almost thermally saturated at the pre-industrial level of 280ppm (The Beer-Lambert Law refers). This is because an increase in CO2 concentration only leads to a logarithmic increase in the absorption of heat. After the pre-industrial level of CO2 ( i.e. at 280ppm), its thermal impact for extra atmospheric concentrations of each – say – 100ppm of extra atmospheric CO2 is almost un-measurably minute and similarly, any reduction in temperature change from a reduction in the CO2 level would need to involve a huge reduction of – say 100ppm, if it is to have any measurable effect (even in theory). As a result, the UN IPCC desire to reduce CO2 emissions and thereby effect a reduction in earth’s temperature is a pipe-dream and is misleading people who are being told that with the expenditure of trillions of dollars over time it can be done. That change is not within human power because… i. Humans influence only a tiny portion of CO2 emissions and, ii. Because natural causes of CO2 emissions are far greater, so a relatively small variation in natural emissions will overpower any influence from human influenced CO2 emissions, and iii. While CO2 may be a greenhouse gas it is a significantly weaker one, than either water vapour which is measured and clouds which are not, and these factors dominate as shown in Dr Holmes’ video at the link in item 4.1 below. But meantime a Finnish study has concluded that the increase in atmospheric CO2 over the last 100 years has only resulted in a temperature increase of 0.1 degrees C. and of this the human proportion is only 0.01 degrees C. as noted in this link :
3.4 Water vapour and clouds provide the principle “greenhouse effect” that keeps earth warmer than outer space. (But please note, the term “greenhouse” is a gross oversimplification which is mainly used to suit the UN IPCC narrative, because there is no restrictive membrane in earth’s atmosphere – like the glass of a greenhouse. The true effect of cloud cover is more complicated because clouds’ net effect is one of competing forces of insulation between the partial shielding of the sun’s rays which (along with water vapour, and other atmospheric compounds) only allows 56% of Total Solar Insolation to descend to the earth’s surface, and the low level cloud and water vapour which inhibits the infra red re-radiation of heat leaving earth’s surface and reaching the extreme cold of space). The attached paper by Emeritus Professor Geoffrey Duffy, dated July 2019, shows “why it is not possible for any of the non-condensable greenhouse gases to have an appreciable effect on weather and climate change”. It is attached herewith as the second (Adobe) article at the head of this email.
- It is now generally accepted that Space Weather determines the weather on earth. While the UN IPCC chooses to believe that Total Solar Irradiance (“TSI”) only varies by 0.05 watts per square metre – up or down, that is based on their purposefully short term comparison of TSI changes and is demonstrably both biased in their favour and incorrect in fact, as has already been published in a number of peer-reviewed studies (again, see the link at item 4.1 below). But not only is the TSI variation far greater than the figures shown in the UN IPCC computer models, but also the variations in solar activity (and numbers of sun spots) change the amount of solar wind affecting the planets in the solar system including planet earth. The stronger the solar wind, the less the number of the galactic cosmic rays that can enter either the solar system or the earth’s atmosphere. During the regular 11 year solar minimums the influx of galactic cosmic rays increases and during events called “Grand Solar Minimums” the influx of cosmic rays is even more dramatically increased.
Cosmic rays not only threaten astronauts and high altitude air crews (as they will do for the next two years) but they act to nucleate water vapour to form low level clouds and these provide an increased cooling effect for the earth as well as initiating massive anomalous rain, hail and even snow events. In 1997 the work of Danish Professor Hendrik Svensmark and his son led to this being promulgated as a substantial theory – but now it has been convincingly proven with successful experiments in the “Cloud” project at CERN. Unlike Anthropogenic Global Warming which has been disproven, the Svensmark theory about cosmic ray impacts on cloud formation is now, if not settled science (as the UN IPCC fraudsters will never accept the truth) but it is repeatable by scientific experimentation. Who could ask for more proof?
3.6 There are now numerous studies of climate change that cast doubt on the validity of all of the UN IPCC sponsored computer models, showing all to grossly overstate possible warming. But each model has a theoretical basis that relies totally on human generated parameters (for which complexity the humans involved receive multiple billions of dollars each year), so the UN IPCC studies cannot be relied upon for one good reason…the actual climate conditions have to date borne no relationship whatsoever to the forecasts of 101 of the 102 computer modelled predictions, or of the 72 models that are currently in vogue and used as the basis for creating deliberate warming alarmism. They may as well have licked their finger and held it up to the air and taken a guess…because both that guess and the computer models are equally subjective.
3.7 By February 2020 we will see whether the Northern Hemisphere is to suffer massive food shortages as a direct result of the extraordinary cold and wet weather that has been interspersed with drought conditions there over winter of 2018/9 and spring of 2019. Northern spring planting has been extensively disrupted as a result Grand Solar Minimum conditions and unless there is an “Indian summer” to delay Autumn, their harvest will likely be dire. While Minister, you have thus far ignored my well-intentioned warnings that you are now becoming at least an accessory to fraud (for over a year), you must try to understand that New Zealand, by your actions is probably becoming exposed to the impacts that will occur on a global basis as a direct result of the presently unfolding Grand Solar Minimum. You have been warned of this material and demonstrably cyclical hazard. Now time is of the essence. Watch what is happening to cereal futures prices if you don’t believe me.
- How big is your fraud? (the total cost of this fraud globally is estimated at USD1.5 trillion per year and is growing exponentially larger and more onerous for the countries of the OECD)
4.1 The hallmark of a fraud is often denoted by the subsidiary lies that need to be told to lend credence to the central falsehood.

Editor’s note: the following paragraphs from the Australian IPC are not in the email to the NZ Prime Minister, and have been added to clarify further details of the ongoing issue and court case. Professor Ridd’s key point is that James Cook University scientists have published many reports that do not comply with the proper scientific methodologies and, as such, are not valid. Eg the results cannot be replicated and the data has not been made available. Yet these reports have been published ‘as gospel’ by many mainstream media, leading to, amongst other things people world-wide believing the Great Barrier Reef is ‘dead’ or at least dying, and no longer travelling to see the reef, causing, amongst other issues, a major downturn in the tourist industry.
As reported by the Australian IPC: ‘Professor Peter Ridd has won his litigation against James Cook University about the Great Barrier Reef, the big scandal for North Queensland is the alleged death of coral that is being deliberately used to create an over-hyped sense of climate emergency. There is nothing wrong with the world’s coral reefs, other than periodic bleaching occurrences that they often quickly recover from. This is a cyclic phenomenon.
In May 2018, after an academic career of more than 30 years, Peter had his employment terminated as a professor of physics at James Cook University in Townsville, Australia. Peter had spoken against the accepted orthodoxy that climate change was ‘killing’ the Great Barrier Reef. ‘There’s some absolute rubbish being spoken about the reef and people’s livelihoods are being put in jeopardy. If nobody will stand up, then this is just going to go on and on and on. It has to be stopped.’
Peter’s court case has enormous implications for the international debate about climate change, and for the ongoing crisis surrounding freedom of speech.
In April, Federal Court Justice Vasta ruled JCU had erred in its interpretation of a clause in its enterprise agreement and deprived Dr Ridd of his right to express his academic opinion. Within hours of the judgment being released in April, JCU published a statement on its website criticising the ruling.
Dr Ridd is seeking financial compensation after he was sacked by JCU for publicly criticising the institution and one of its star scientists over claims about the impact of global warming on the Great Barrier Reef.
In his decision, Judge Vasta stated that:
[T]he concept of intellectual freedom is not recent and is extremely important as it helps to define the mission of any university… It is the cornerstone upon which the University exists. If the cornerstone is removed, the building tumbles.
[…] To use the vernacular, the University has “played the man and not the ball”. Incredibly, the University has not understood the whole concept of intellectual freedom. In the search for truth, it is an unfortunate consequence that some people may feel denigrated, offended, hurt or upset. It may not always be possible to act collegiately when diametrically opposed views clash in the search for truth.
[…] That is why intellectual freedom is so important. It allows academics to express their opinions without fear of reprisals. It allows a Charles Darwin to break free of the constraints of creationism. It allows an Albert Einstein to break free of the constraints of Newtonian physics. It allows the human race to question conventional wisdom in the never-ending search for knowledge and truth. And that, at its core, is what higher learning is about. To suggest otherwise is to ignore why universities were created and why critically focussed academics remain central to all that university teaching claims to offer.’
We continue to see story after story that hypes the warm temperatures and ignores the cold weather. Heat waves? Hype and hoopla. The sceptics are calling out every one of the lies now, just as quickly as the mainstream media prints them…
This is only because the media is being manipulated by political forces aligned to the (your?) international socialist movement. The fake news propaganda effort is being coordinated by the UN IPCC and their supporters. We can no longer get accurate media reporting on how weather compares, or about climate change, nor on the other sub-plots. Like this one about Arctic Sea Ice because the fraud dominates… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwUhJaQVi-M&feature=youtu.be and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZDtnq9A-Bg&feature=youtu.be
Even the fate of polar bears is being twisted to suit the UN agenda… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6bcCTFnGZ0&feature=youtu.be
In mid July (only last week and during mid-summer!) the “Crown Prince Haakon” a Norwegian icebreaker set out to crash through from Svalbard to the North Pole based on the stories of rapid ice melt. They quickly turned back due to striking solid 10 ft thick ice. Even with Greenland’s and Iceland’s principle glaciers now advancing we still get stories that they are retreating. This level of scientific disinformation may suit your purposes but if this Grand Solar Minimum (2019-2055) is to be a 400 year event like the Maunder Minimum – rather than 200 year event like the Dalton minimum – then this will end in tears because it will soon be too late for us to prepare.
4.2 The establishment of carbon trading schemes relies totally on the ability of the UN IPCC scientists to predict what happens in the future as CO2 levels are notionally to be brought under control by exerting the influence of humans over natural forces to reduce both atmospheric CO2 and global temperatures. That relies totally on the accuracy of trumped up, totally inaccurate, but extremely expensive computer models. In this rush to implement a false doctrine, the developed countries have joined a collective rush that will destroy their economic base. If you sit down with your scientists and watch these two videos by Dr Robert Holmes and Dr Patrick Moore you will get a sense of the gravity of what your government’s involvement in this fraud is doing to all except those in the developing world who (are already and) will happily continue to eat our lunch in every possible way.
4.3 Herewith is the video of a comprehensive rebuttal of the science that your globalist friends rely upon (by Dr Robert Holmes). Each video Dr Holmes has put out gradually tightens the knot around the Great Global Warming fraud as he itemises the genuine peer reviewed experiments and research that gives the lie to the UN IPCC dogma that is essential for their survival. This latest in his series contains most of the evidence that will blow this fraud apart.
4.4 You claim to be a devout environmentalist, yet I allege you are betraying the environmental movement and misleading the general public. Accordingly I have laid a separate complaint about the deceptive and misleading conduct of both you as Leader, and the NZ Green Party, with the Commerce Commission under s. 13 of the Fair Trading Act 1986. You cannot take destructive action against all earth’s/New Zealand’s vegetative species and still lay claim to being “green”. Here is Dr Patrick Moore’s video on the destructive actions of others also participating in this fraud. I make no apology for its length which enables you to better understand his credentials and the similar conundrum they face in Canada to the trouble you are stirring up in New Zealand. As with Greenpeace, Canada, it is all counter-productive.
At this point in time there are between 10-15,000 scientists working in every OECD country to combat the Great Global Warming Fraud. But essentially, when the global harvests begin to fail (as they did last year – if only in some regions), it will be too late for us to prepare.
- The preoccupation of the UN IPCC with their fraud is because it is an existential requirement for that organisation, as noted by Dr Moore’s video at 29 minutes and 44 seconds…I quote from the UN IPCC’s mandate to analyse… “a change in climate that is attributed to directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere and which is in addition to natural climate variability observed over comparable time periods.” The facts however tell us a different story as per the link below…even using UN IPCC approved data…the knowledge of what happened once the ice cores from Antarctica were analysed in 2003, busted their theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming, and since then the UN simply ratcheted up their fraudulent activities to increase their hold on power over national governments. This Vostok ice core data is also confirmed by Greenland studies of the Holocene climate history, covering only the last 11,500 years…
4.6 I cannot open a newspaper without some element of the fraud being telegraphed as proven science. Whether it is as a result of the studied ignorance of journalists or because children have believed the lies that you and their teachers have told them as part of their school curriculum. Those elements of the mainstream media that spread the lies and disinformation must be stopped forthwith. The sceptics know the role that George Soros and others have played in this fraud. Local Government, Maori interests, Central Government officers, farmers, oil companies business leaders and others have all been misled and become unwitting accomplices. But of greater cost to the country is the rubbish that carbon trading will lead to some form of beneficial climate modification. This activity and many others are by definition only Ponzi schemes. Their life and existence depends on “greater fools” making bigger and bigger financial contributions to the point when the fraud is discovered and a massive “debt jubilee” automatically takes place, to the cost of everyone who has obeyed your erroneous interpretation of junk science and obeyed your corrupt laws. There is a ripeness of time for all frauds to be exposed. But the longer it takes, the worse the situation will be.
- The cost of your policies will be too steep for the country of New Zealand to bear, as it has already been in Germany and Australia. As the proven cost of the UN IPCC’s wasteful programme becomes known, the global resistance is getting stronger now that the truth is getting out.
This is a sample of something doing the rounds in Australia…. https://www.youtube.com/embed/BC1l4geSTP8
Minister, you have a duty to familiarise yourself with the science. Although I am not associated with it, I believe the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition’s experts can provide you with directions of where to get help and support.
I believe from the data that the earth’s climate is always changing, either up or down, and because I now see a bias in favour of the solar and space weather scientists’ consensus – who mostly believe the climate will now cool – I am classed as a “Climate Change Denier”. Those who believe in human instigated global warming and insist that the term “climate change” is the same as “global warming” are hyping runaway warming for all they are worth and yet their un-warranted alarmism is based solely on computer models that only do one thing – they reinforce their own personal world view. After 30 years, because their models don’t agree with the data, they simply change the data to suit their models. Are you really happy to go along with that?
The Russians used to have a saying, “The most difficult thing to predict is history”. (It is like Tiananmen Square and the CCP) Try to track the unwarranted and self-serving alterations to temperature data and you will understand why I, like Professor Moerner of Sweden think the UN IPCC are such frauds. If you do check this information for yourself you will find yourself sitting on the wrong side of the biggest fraud in global history. I hope you will feel comfortable there, until the truth does out.
I am simply an investor in renewable energy projects moonlighting as a fraud investigator, calling the facts as I see them. I don’t like what I see, but unlike you, I face them. Don’t we, the people, pay you to do the same?

CARBON DIOXIDE CO2 and WATER H2 O CONTRASTED
- Showing water and condensable water vapour have by nature much greater actions on weather changes and climate patterns than non-condensable CO2 ever could.
- SOLAR RADIATION: CO2 only has TWO narrow absorption bands for incoming solar energy. Water vapour has SEVEN (5 larger bands). Water vapour is 5 times more effective with incoming Solar radiation.
- RADIATION from EARTH: CO2 only has TWO more narrow absorption bands for radiation coming back from earth. Water vapour covers 85% of the entire span. Water vapour is more than 12 times effective than CO2.
- Overall, water vapour is about 12 times more effective than non-condensable CO2 with respect to all radiation
- Condensable water vapour evaporates, humidifies, then condenses to form clouds, which can precipitate to produce rain or snow, and scrub dust and pollutants from the air, and then cool the atmosphere and planet surface.
CARBON DIOXIDE CO2
- CO2 is NOT a pollutant or a toxin [Carbon MONOXIDE CO is the toxin: prevents blood from carrying oxygen]
- CO2 in the atmosphere is vital for LIFE – plants and vegetation: we would die without it !
- Crops, trees, plants, convert CO2 into sugars, cellulose, fruit, vegetables, and more
- Leaf ‘factories’ convert CO2 into organic carbon compounds and O2
- Marine plankton and molluscs uptake and convert CO2 too!
- Humans exhale 1 kg CO2 per day (close to 7 Billion humans on Earth) and the concentration is 40,000 ppm at the exit of the mouth
- NOT all CO2 in the atmosphere is man-made (< 5%) – most is naturally produced
- Ruminating animals put out more greenhouse gases than all the cars, buses, trucks and other vehicles in the world
- The main sources of anthropogenic greenhouse gases are Fossil Fuels: coal, oil, gas, and the burning of crops and waste, wood, trees and other wastes and garbage (still very small worldwide)
- CO2 absorbs radiant energy over a total of 4 LIMITED NARROW BANDS [see Graph below],
- Atmospheric CO2 is a non-condensable GAS like nitrogen, oxygen, and methane. Water vapour is the ONLY condensable gas. These changes of phase (evaporation, condensation, precipitation) produce all the atmospheric effects: heat-shielding clouds, cooling, and atmospheric scrubbing
- For every 1,000,000 molecules of atmosphere, only 10,410 in NZ are greenhouse gas GHG molecules. But 10,000 of the 10,410 are water molecules. Of the remaining 410, ONLY about 405 are CO2. Of these, only 5% (about 20 molecules) are from man-made processes (20 in 1 million; 0.002%; 1 molecule in 50,000!! Can that be the main culprit in climate change when water is typically about 1% in New Zealand; or 1 molecule in 100, while absorbing far more radiant energy as the graph below shows
- The ocean holds 93% of ALL CO2 (38,000 billion tonnes); the land 5% (2,000 billion tonnes); the atmosphere 2% (850 billion tonnes), of which anthropogenic CO2 is ONLY 5% of that (about 45 billion tonnes)
- CO2 in rain water is acidic: CO2 in sea water is alkaline (pH 8.1), and can never-ever be acidic while shells, carbonates and molluscs exist to neutralise it. It can become less alkaline but not acidic
- CO2 is commonly injected into greenhouse to increase plant growth rates and crop yields
- It has been reported that there has been a 20 – 40% greening of the planet over the last several decades
- China has 1,171 coal-fired plants planned; India 446; so coal is still in strong demand
- Examining atmospheric CO2 must always be considered simultaneously with the many larger effects of H2O.
Increasing CO2 concentration increases crop yields as shown in this actual Greenhouse experiment!
WATER VAPOUR H2O
Water is UNIQUE and quite different from CO2:
- WATER: The most abundant compound on the planet and a universal solvent. Water makes up over 60% of the human body. It is in all plants, animals, cells etc ..
- WATER VAPOUR: Is the ONLY condensable atmospheric gas. So only H2O can evaporate, humidify, condense (clouds), and precipitate (rain, hail, and snow).
- WATER: H2O is the ONLY fluid that FLOATS ON ITSELF when it FREEZES on the liquid surface. [If it did not float it would sink and crush the creatures (fish, sharks, whales) in the Oceans. Marine life flourishes in water below the floating ice].
- WATER VAPOUR: Has the largest percentage greenhouse gas EFFECT [about 45% – 70% (clear sky), 70% – 90% (cloudy sky)]
- WATER VAPOUR: The water vapour concentration in the atmosphere depends on temperature and location [< 0.2% in very cold climates to >4% by mass at high Humidity in the tropics >35 0C]
- WATER: Oceans absorb 1,000 times more heat energy than the atmosphere, and BUFFERS more than 80% of the large heat fluctuations (and hence temperature variations), thereby moderating weather changes and climate patterns greatly. This key factor is missed when only isolating radiation-only and CO2. 93% of all CO2 is in the oceans (~38,000 billion tonnes)
- WATER: Liquid water has the highest surface tension (surface molecular skin) of all natural liquids. It controls water droplet formation, cloud structures, ocean surfaces, waves, evaporation rates, etc
- WATER: H2O molecules are polar (H slightly +ve; O slightly –ve). Hence adjacent water molecules can ‘attract’ each other, particularly as the temperature is lowered (ice floats on water because of this). [Liquid water can also ionise slightly H3O+ hydronium ions, and OH– hydroxyl ions]. Hydrogen onding gives some unique features unlike CO2: H2O has the second highest specific heat capacity [only ammonia* is greater]: H2O has a very high heat of vaporisation (2,257 kJ/kg at its boiling point), and ENERGY TRANSFERS are very important in atmospheric changes (weather) (shows up as temperature differences)
- WATER: The ‘Structure’ and ‘Behaviour’ of H2O molecules have LARGE buffering effects that moderate the earth’s weather and they affect both evaporation from the seas and condensation in cloud formation. Non-condensable CO2 gas forms NO clouds
- WATER: The specific enthalpy of fusion (at freezing) is very high (333.6 kJ/kg at 0°C) [only ammonia* is higher], and this confers resistance to melting on the ice. [Density decrease or Bulk increase at freezing is about 9%]
- WATER: Water Vapour – Liquid Water – Ice COEXIST at the equilibrium Triple Point. It is amazing that it occurs near 00C (By comparison, the Triple Point of CO2 is -56.50C so it strongly differs from water). This has some unique effects in phase transitions near the poles (eg solid ice can go to vapour DIRECTLY with no liquid water for example [sublimation]) (dry ice CO2 used widely on stage and TV)).
- WATER: Water has a freezing point of 00C and a boiling point of 1000C due to its unique molecular polar structure. We live because of that!!
- WATER: The nearest molecule to Water (Atomic Weight of 18) is Ammonia (Atomic Weight of 17). In direct contrast, the freezing point of Ammonia is -770C and a boiling point of -330C even though the Atomic Weights are 1 point different. This shows that the structure of water is unique! Just as well, water is THE MOST ABUNDANT COMPOUND on the EARTH’S SURFACE and the temperature absorption-emission bands are just right for life on Earth.
- The Thermal Lapse Rate or temperature drop is the 6.5C0 temperature drop per kilometer rise above earth. This is caused by all atmospheric gas molecules moving further with increasing elevation (lower density and lower pressure result). This is vital for humidification, mists, fogs and cloud formation
- WATER VAPOUR: can regulate, buffer, compensate, correct, and restore atmospheric changes

THE GREAT GLOBAL WARMING FRAUD – SUMMARY
By John Rofe, 28 July 2019
- After 30 years of repeated warnings of impending Armageddon from the United Nations (“UN”) based on the subjective and inaccurate computer modelling performed at the cost of national governments (and all taxpayers) at the UN’s behest, they are certainly no closer to understanding the climate. But they are instead still trying to defend their 30-year fraud.
- Meantime, credible solar scientists have good evidence that the principle cause of climate change lies with the variability of the solar cycles that have continued to affect earth’s climate since the beginning of time. UN bias ignores this evidence. Even so, there are some longer cycles that affect the passage of ice ages and inter-glacial periods, and are caused by earth’s movements in relation to the sun. These don’t yet figure within our time horizon.
- The only plausible cause of all the warming that has happened since “The Little Ice Age” ended in 1850, has come from the highest level of solar electromagnetic activity for 4,000 years. The increase in earth’s temperature of little over 1 degree Centigrade over 160 years is latterly being called the “Modern Warm Period”. Those of us who have checked the history find it is not remarkably warm at all today, even though a lot of effort is being made to convince us that it is, with lies, damned lies and cherry-picked statistics. The Mediaeval Warm Period was arguably much warmer – a thousand years ago. What about the 1930’s?
- NASA now tells us a new weaker 11 year solar cycle – called simply “sc25” – is commencing at a time when there is record thinning and cooling of earth’s outer layer of atmosphere (called “the Thermosphere”) which we are also told heralds the imminent arrival of a new 30 year event called a “Grand Solar Minimum”. Many scientists now expect a period of much colder weather to last from 2019 to 2055 that could result in horrific global crop losses. I guess the proof of that is about to be revealed, as early as February 2020. We will see.
- The truth about carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide is that they are only minor trace gases and cannot possibly influence earth’s climate. They are proven to have no measurable effect on climate change, and carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, but a gas necessary for all life on earth. Besides water and light, carbon dioxide is the only resource essential for all plant growth. Plants really need 1000 parts per million of carbon dioxide from the air. Yet today the atmosphere only contains about 415 parts per million. To remedy this deficiency, horticulturalists pump bottled gas into glass houses and growing tunnels at up to 2,000 parts per million. So carbon dioxide is not a pollutant, but it is also in relatively short supply. There is clearly no possibility of influencing climate change by reducing human emissions of carbon dioxide (“CO2”) which anyway constitute less than 4.3% of total CO2 emissions. So NZ Government actions are just part of the UN IPCC coordinated fraud.
- Because methane emissions have even less effect than CO2, the present demands being made on the NZ farming community are somewhere between bizarre and ridiculous.
- But why is your Government lying to you? I cannot answer for them, but I can assure you that after a year of failing to get satisfactory reasons for their fraudulent behaviour, I laid allegations against Minister James Shaw and PM Jacinda Ardern with the NZ Serious Fraud Office in mid-April 2019…and later also laid a complaint with the NZ Commerce Commission against Minister James Shaw and the NZ Green Party under s.13 of the Fair Trading Act 1986.
There is a ripeness of time for all frauds to be revealed…for this one, let’s fix it today.
