Subject: Really Big frauds inevitably require bigger and bigger lies…then the child soldiers are weaponised once the biggest lie of all loses its credibility
Each of you, by signature to the Zero Carbon legislation is now guilty of fraud; and of both complicity in, and actively promoting carbon trading Ponzi schemes. These are criminal offences and I am directly accusing you of at least being accessories to criminality, along with Antonio Guterres and his fellow travellers.
I have told you before, there is a ripeness of time for all frauds to be laid bare to public scrutiny and opprobrium. So you need to come clean.
If not, then gather your evidence (if any real evidence exists) and lets litigate. I simply want evidence that human CO2 emissions have any material effect on climate change. After two years of asking for this I will continue to accuse you of fraud until you deliver it. As a taxpayer I am entitled to an explanation for your actions – as is everyone.
From 15+ years of my research into the spurious UN IPCC claims, I have found there is no justification for any spending on attempting to reduce “climate change” because the only measurable effects of the human use of the fossil fuels since 1850 has been the increase in atmospheric CO2, the increased wealth and well-being of all humanity from abundant and cheap energy and the greening of planet earth as a result of increased atmospheric CO2. But because of the long duration of CO2 within the atmosphere, and because human actions account for less than 4.3% of all CO2 emissions (as accepted by UN IPCC) there is absolutely no possibility of confidence that a reduction in human emissions could cause the future level of atmospheric CO2 to fall. Natural variability could even cause it to increase, despite controlled draconian global attempts at human reduction, which will never happen.
As there are still far more countries planning to increase CO2 emissions than those trying either successfully or unsuccessfully to control them, there is zero chance of any credible reduction in human emissions being made within the next 10-20 years.
The only thing your misguided actions can achieve is to destroy the reputation of science and the scientific method, to go hand in hand with destruction of our economy. All this to bring about the enrichment of a few of your fellow travellers and higher energy costs for those least able to afford them.
Each adult human inhales a tiny 4 ppm of CO2 to go with 20% O2. We exhale air heated to body temperature, with 100% relative humidity and CO2 emissions at 4% (or 40,000ppm). So our inhalations cleanse and oxygenate our blood and we emit 100 times the CO2 we inhaled. The oxygen exhaled is reduced to 15% or less. Given the weight of CO2, we each exhale about 360kgs of CO2 per annum. Animals many time more – or less. What do you want to do? Tax us for our exhalations?
Contrary to your advice from the UN IPCC and your ignorant cabal of “junk” scientists, (by both satellite imagery and experimentation) the increase in atmospheric CO2 has already benefitted all plant life, and will continue to do so. It increases the vigour of plant growth and makes all plants more drought resistant. There is and has never been any evidence that CO2 is a pollutant and together with water and oxygen, CO2 is one of three reasons that complex life exists on earth, whereas it exists nowhere else in the solar system. If the atmospheric CO2 concentration falls to 150ppm or less, then all life on earth will die and the carbon cycle may end.
We are carbon based life forms and our extinction as an apex mammal would likely be an early effect of low atmospheric CO2.
There has never been any evidence that CO2 has either been a significant influence on climate change as atmospheric CO2 levels have always been a trailing indicator of major temperature fluctuations for as long as scientists could perform their experiments and calculations. It is generally accepted that ocean de-gassing of CO2 occurs when it is warming, and conversely taking up more CO2 when the atmosphere has been cooling, is the cause for this. There is even a lag time due to the fact that the ocean takes longer to take up heat and to cool, than does land.
The solar and space weather sciences, together with all the known history of the solar cycles and the Milankovich cycles are an extra-terrestrial cause for the variations in earth’s climate and together with the attempts within the seas and atmosphere to equalise heat distribution as the earth rotates, these account for climate change and remove any justification for your erroneous presumption that humans have a significant effect on climate. Localised warming yes, but it dissipates with no significant, measurable effect on climate change. The extremely active solar cycles of the 20th century alone account for the increases in temperature of earth’s climate during the modern warm period, which despite the deliberate “official” doctoring of temperature records have only achieved a total increase of 1.1 degree Centigrade between the year 1850 and December 2019. That is, over a period of 169 years. So the average increase during that period is well within natural variability. Forecasts of sea level rise and atmospheric heating made by the UN IPCC junk scientists are simply ridiculous. But they do show that junk scientists will do anything for money. Yet still, one by one, they defect.
For politicians of any colour to support the fraud, you must first be prepared to believe that an improbable theory promulgated to advantage sectional interests is superior to the existence of the Beer-Lambert Law of science, because that law already relegates all increases in CO2 to having an inconsequential impact on thermal uptake and therefore climate, at even the pre-industrial levels (i.e. about 280ppm). Atmospheric CO2 is already thermally saturated and can provide no significant future effect within an enormous time horizon.
You have been taken for idiots by a small group of extremely well paid and funded scientists, UN politicians and their bureaucrats, most of whom have no idea about climate science. Simply put…from the Google search below… the “we” is you…
“Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practise to deceive”
“(Sir Walter Scott) Whenever we deceive others, in order to make things better for ourselves in the moment, we deceive ourselves most of all.Oct 25, 2017 “
If you want to prove that human CO2 emissions have a dominant effect on climate, meet me in court. I will be happy to litigate this as soon as you are ready. I want a trial date…so come and get me before I go public, along the lines of my 1 January trial run in the NZ Herald. A copy of that is at the top of the page.
Your fraud is now pretty obvious, and all the world’s delusional Greta Thunbergs cannot change the laws of physics and chemistry. Now your “tangle” only gets tortuous as any fair-minded person would accept from the detail below…

Subject: Merry Christmas
In 2018 I warned of the dire consequences of failing to check the science you rely on for public policy settings over climate change. I warned of the climate phenomena appearing that supported the narrative that we are probably moving into a Grand Solar Minimum.
In 2019 I laid complaints with the NZ Serious Fraud Office and the NZ Commerce Commission regarding your demonstrably false climate change narrative. Naturally the complaints came to nothing. I noted the radical shortening of the Northern growing seasons that have further reduced for each year from 2017, 2018 and again in 2019. I commented on the signs that food shortages will soon loom large due to cold climate crop losses. The only certainty at this point is that food costs will head much higher in 2020, because despite shortages, we humans can possibly adapt to cope and farmers will now start changing their cropping choices.
In 2020 the earth will reach the bottom of the eleven year solar cycle numbered 24, and it will start into solar cycle number 25. So the best Christmas present I can offer you is to explain why the solar cycles are so important. NASA, NOAA, the Russians and the Chinese have indicated that solar cycle 25 will be the least active for at least 100 years and many experts claim the unfolding Grand Solar Minimum will be a 200 year event.
1. The successive ice ages on earth during the 2.5 million year Pleistocene era have historically been triggered by what is known as Milankovich cycles (now generally accepted). These consist of three separate cycles referred to as “the Tilt variation of earth from the sun”, “the Obliquity of earth’s motion through space”, and “Eccentricity of earth’s orbit around the sun”. Of these three cycles the most influential is eccentricity and it takes around 100,000 years to happen. Our civilisation has only begun during the latest 10-12,000 year interglacial period we live in called the “Holocene”, which has now lasted for at least 11,500 years. A plunge into extreme glaciations is now probably due. It was alluded to by the expert climate scientists during the 1970’s when earths average temperature had cooled by about 0.4 degrees C., from 1945. No-one actually knows when it will happen.
2. Within the Holocene period, The time of maximum warmth due to natural cycles is said to have already passed and it is considered that the Minoan Warm period 3,500 years ago was when that occurred. So there is good evidence available that points to earth’s average temperatures today being some 2-3 degrees C. cooler than the Holocene temperature maximum. There are possibly two certainties that will affect us. The first is that the solar cycles with rising and falling levels of electromagnetic activity will drive the natural climate variations on planet earth as they will the climates of the other planets within our solar system since the beginning of time. The second certainty (well an extremely high probability) is that at some point the Milankovich cycles will usher in the return of a period of extensive glaciation that is similar to previous ice ages.
3. Full ice ages with extensive glaciations must be accepted as near certain extinction-level events. The significance for New Zealand is less onerous than for others, yet that may mean a progressive but effective end to agriculture in the South Island…. as and when it occurs.
4. Our recorded history of the impact of varying levels of solar activity really began with the Maunder Minimum (1645AD-1715AD) but these provided a mathematical trace back to earlier Grand Solar Minimums before the birth of Christ. Grand Solar Minimums coincide with the coldest periods of “the Little Ice Age” (which ran from about 1280AD – 1870AD). They also align well with the record of famines and the fall of dynasties in China. Both the Russian and the Chinese governments take the science behind Grand Solar Minimums very seriously and use the known cycles for their strategic planning. As a result I commend the history of Grand Solar Minimums to the attention of yourselves and your Civil Defence personnel.
5. Space exploration and remote climate monitoring only really began in about 1979. Today the probing of solar influence is a regular event and the effect of the solar cycles on earth’s weather is well-known if suppressed by the mainstream media.
6. So my Christmas present to you is to provide my personal understanding of how Grand Solar Minimums likely affect the earth’s climate
This will be extremely topical because many believe we have entered a cooling cycle that will last until 2055. Some believe it will last much longer. The data supports this conclusion. The data does not support suggestions that humans, CO2 build-up and/or CH4 build-up cause climate change. So I think this topic is well worth spending some time on.
The principle indicator of solar electromagnetic activity is visible to humans by virtue of the number of sunspots appearing on the face of the sun each day. These are carefully counted and conform to maxima and minima based on the stage of the eleven year solar cycles. Solar minimums are marked by no sunspots appearing for days or even months. There is a huge and growing body of solid science surrounding this topic.
If we look at the regular eleven year minimum that occurred between solar cycles 23 and 24, there have been 70 sunspot free days in 2006 (or 19 %), in 2007 there have been 152 sunspot free days (or 42 %) and in 2008 there were 268 days (or 73%). In the tail end of solar cycle 24 there have been considerably more sunspot-free days. With 2017 at 104 days (compared with 70 in sc23), in 2018 at 220 days (compared with 152 in sc23). With the year almost up in 2019 the percentage of spot-free days already stands at 76% compared with 73% in 2008. This signals how the sun is rapidly becoming less active. From the attached link to a schematic of solar cycles you can see how the eleven year solar cycles vary and in particular the low sunspot numbers of the Dalton Minimum in the early 19th century.
The reduced solar activity has a number of effects. First the Total Solar Insolation which strikes earth’s atmosphere is reduced. The second is that the earth’s Thermosphere tends to thin and become colder. This variation to earths outer temperature is indicative of what is to come… as we move towards the solar minimum in 2020…
With reduced solar activity, the solar wind drops. It is the solar wind which keeps cosmic rays from flooding the galaxy. The solar wind is also the reason the tails of comets point away from the sun and not at the direction the comet has come from. So a key measure of the space weather is the solar wind strength and density…
There are always cosmic rays intruding in our atmosphere and they result in the increased nucleation of water vapour into low level clouds. The cloud cover is the primary reflective umbrella for earth, with usually about 65% cloud cover. So only about 56% of the sun’s rays hit the earth’s surface and any contribution to increasing cloud cover has a net cooling effect.
The Earth is once again being bombarded by the highest intrusion of cosmic rays for the space age…
This below is a snap shot of the current stats from www.spaceweather.com that suggest to me the highest influx of galactic cosmic rays will occur in 2020-2021.
“Oulu Neutron Counts
Percentages of the Space Age average:
today: +10.9% Very High
7-day change: +3.3%
Max: +11.7% Very High (12/2009)
Min: -32.1% Very Low (06/1991)

The solar electromagnetic variation affects earth’s magnetosphere and there is some evidence that the tectonic plates are affected by the changed gravitational effects and by the effect of cosmic rays on sub-surface magma. However I am not sure how reliable the correlations are between Grand Solar Minimums and volcanism. Even so the fact that 80% of all volcanoes are under the oceans and they have the potential to heat deep ocean water in a way the surface temperatures cannot, suggests they may have a far greater impact on New Zealand’s eventual weather than anyone acknowledges. Our climate is maritime by nature, so we are less likely to be affected by cooling solar influences while our oceans remain warm.
So to summarise, the likely effects of the space weather on the climate of earth includes:
1. Variations in Total Solar Insolation (not very large but certainly these are grossly under-rated by the UN IPCC).
2. Variations in the Thermosphere Climate Index because when it cools and thins, the loss of heat at night via infra-red radiation will be greater.
3. Variations in the cosmic ray influx affecting the formation of low level cloud. This is a climatic feature attributed to large scale flooding and heavy snows during Grand Solar Minimums.
4. There is a poorly understood effect on both the Northern hemisphere and Southern hemisphere jet streams which leads to them slowing and meandering closer to the Equator. This leads to reduced temperatures where the loops venture into lower latitudes and higher temperatures in the higher latitudes when the jet streams venture outside their normal routes. Historically, we are told this accounts for the massive floods of the so-called “Dark Ages” and the “Little Ice Age”.
From what I can tell from the historical records, the advent of a 200 year cyclic Grand Solar Minimum doesn’t seem to dramatically alter the earth’s average temperature, but it does alter the climate of normally temperate or warm zones. Hence the snowing in places like the Serengeti, the Sahara and Saudi Arabia in 2018.
In 2019 the effects of the “Eddy” Grand Solar Minimum have become obvious and this has led to recognition by NASA that the earth is headed for a period of cooling. Yet all mention of the solar cycles is still absolutely banned from mention in the mainstream media.
Russia and China are already taking emergency steps to protect their food supplies.
Yet you remain asleep at the wheel. New Zealand is exposed, despite the kindness of our maritime climate.
So may I suggest you give this some thought when you are choosing what to read during your Christmas holidays. Books by John L Casey such as “Cold Sun” or “Dark Winter” from your local library could be a good start.
Anyway, I have retired as a Justice of the Peace to eliminate any suggestions of conflict of interest when I plan my year of action. So 2020 is going to be a whole new “ball game” for me.
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR

Subject: The abject fear of answering three simple questions
Humour me. You will find it worthwhile…because you too were either fooled into drinking the populist Koolaid about climate change, or there are powers that control your news reporting that make our world an Orwellian nightmare, and our freedoms lost. More factual evidence has been presented in previous submissions .
We have entered an era where there are today, arguably more than five times the number of “scientists” who have ever lived before them. Many ignore the “scientific method” when it is more convenient to “lose it”. The contestability test is subordinated to the popularity of a theory.
They now tell us which toothpaste to use and which drugs are good and which are bad, and in most cases they espouse an undisclosed business, or political reason for doing so. This deception is nowhere more prevalent than the area of climate science where fake news is promoting an orthodox agenda of various trans-national groups, and now this and its sub plots have become the biggest-ever fraud in human history. Real conservation has been prostituted in favour of fakery. Yet the science at the heart of the paradigm is missing and can never be discussed in polite company.
And now we have the 11,000 pseudo-scientists’ report – really a blog opinion piece with the “likes” of others signified – heralded as yet another scientific breakthrough.
This is the latest of the faux authoritative scientific studies… https://academic.oup.com/bioscience/advance-article/doi/10.1093/biosci/biz088/5610806
The surveyor of opinions was an obscure forestry blog site at Oregon U., masquerading as a reputable international group of scientists, and an initial critique is contained here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vs3ZPGLPiss&feature=youtu.be
The survey was treated as a learned and peer reviewed research paper, whereas it was really a simple survey of folk who may for whatever reason be willing to share the writers’ opinions and while ‘Professor Mickey Mouse’ and ‘Professor Albus Dumbledore’ of Harry Potter fame were originally respondents, the list was edited to remove anyone who didn’t look worth the “powder and shot” to present their survey. The pruning supposedly was very severe.
To check the criticism I have just waded through the entire 323 pages of the names of the “11,000” so-called “knowledgeable scientists” (following editing) providing the latest faux warning of climate Armageddon at this link below.
The kindest things I can say about the New Zealand based contributors to the survey is this:
1. They seem to be well educated, but generally do not seem to have relevant experience in the subject matter of the dire warning to humanity.
2. I doubt they can have known that they were click bait for promoting eugenics as part of this.
3. Of the 230+ Kiwis who put their names, occupations and employment details forward in the survey, there would be less than 5 (possibly only 2) with relevant climate science qualifications and experience who I would wish to consult on this subject.
4. The largest cadre were computer scientists, either Emeritus Professors, Professors, Associate Professors, computer analysts or Lecturers (I suppose they must therefore receive some NZ Government incentive for noting their agreement to the questionnaire). Lots of people who work for the NZ Institute for Plant and Food Research popped up too….did someone organise mass support for the individual “likes”?
5. I couldn’t find any names of the NZ climate scientists I am familiar with.
But I will give the Kiwi respondents the benefit of the doubt because among these folk, there must surely be at least one who can answer the following questions that none of the known climate scientists can answer (certainly not the PM’s science adviser – Professor Juliet Gerrard – see also the letter from the CEO of the Environomics (NZ) Trust above):
1. What empirical evidence is there that changes in the atmospheric level of carbon dioxide are able to alter the climate and what evidence is there that it ever has to date? (After all, atmospheric CO2 has increased from 280ppm since the end of “the Little Ice Age” in 1880, to 415ppm at the present date so surely there is clear evidence one way or the other?)
2. What evidence is there that human emissions of CO2 and CH4 act as atmospheric pollutants?
3. What evidence is there that it is possible for humans to reduce the atmospheric level of CO2 by a sufficient amount to reduce the Global Mean Surface Temperature by even one tenth of one degree Centigrade below that which would otherwise obtain from natural causes or the actions of others, by the year 2100?
In 2020 these questions will be a big deal for the PM and the Minister of Climate Change. You see I am not only a private fraud investigator but I already warned them last year that these are essential planks that support the legitimacy or criminality of their actions. Failing to answer which, they are at best promoting a fraud, because you see, they say they are implementing policies because the UN IPCC says they should. No-one, anywhere in the world has, or would be brave enough (or perhaps stupid enough) to provide answers to the three questions I have been asking over the 40 years that this runaway deception has been rolling….
If I were sick of drinking beer and said the only reason I drink it is because “Big Terry” drinks it, that would be OK. But I am not hurting anyone by failing to make enquiry of my options.
But the response from the Minister of Climate Change (that I have in writing) admits he is committed to his course of action because the UN IPCC and their tame cabal of supposedly orthodox scientists says he should. And that is not OK because it is the least financially robust of our citizens who will ultimately bear the cost of this fraud.
So who is running this government programme? PM Jacinda Ardern regards this “fraud” (my word not hers) as her administration’s defining issue. So why is she going to waste billions of our money to satisfy her and past PM Helen Clark’s Socialist mates at the UN – when there is not a scintilla of scientific justification and yet huge cost? The ploy of claiming the science is proven when it isn’t, is not a tenable position for our activist government to take when damaging whole industry sectors. Ministers of the Crown have a fiduciary duty of care to act for proper purpose and I argue that in the case of their climate change bigotry they are not…or at least cannot possibly….demonstrate they are doing so.
In a detailed and fully-referenced paper, Wellington researcher/analyst Barbara McKenzie has published a withering rebuttal of the New Zeaand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s comments in a speech lauding ther passage in the NZ Parliament of the so-called Zero Carbon Bill.Ms McKenzie writes: “Jacinda Ardern calls [the bill] the ‘nuclear moment for this generation.” What she means, of course, is that Parliament is in effect nuking the New Zealand economy and the New Zealand environment on the back of what is frequently referred to as the greatest hoax in the history of science.”Later in the paper, Ms McKenzie says any MP who claims to take an interest in the climate debate must know “Jacinda’s speech was a pack of lies.”
If you look at my previous correspondence it isn’t that I have not given the Government fair warning. What we, the people must demand is the truth about the core issue. This is not about partisan politics nor a criticism of National and NZ First folding their principles to a wasteful piece of legislation.
If the answers to three simple questions are provided and these do actually hold water, I will go quietly into the night.
But remember that in exercising your power of editing or ignoring this information, you have already, by accident or design, ignored numerous warnings of climate Armageddon that have been proven wrong year after year, since 1989 and some before, including Prince Charles, the Duke of Edinburgh, several heads of the United Nations and heads of global corporations.
So we have a dominant paradigm that is nothing more than a 40 year fraud, with numerous subsidiary frauds appended to it.
As Jack Nicholson’s character said in “A Few Good Men”, “The truth? You can’t handle the truth!”

Subject: A short look at Vladimir’s view of the Eddy Grand Solar Minimum contrasted with that of a knowledgeable US farmer
It is still too early to see what sort of damage is occurring in the Northern hemisphere due to the approach of the Eddy Minimum. But the folk at the web site Adapt 2030 have the best window on the 2019 crop losses at this 4 minute video below. The losses in 2017 and 2018 were not visible because inventory movements masked them. This year may be the first of many where that becomes impossible…
The weather these folk speak of is only relevant, insofar as the early autumnal blizzards are covering crops before they can be harvested. So every USDA and other forecast of crop levels is being sequentially reduced as they factor in more and more bad news. How serious will it get? It is too early to tell.
Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin know exactly what is happening. The Chinese have more than 2,000 years of records of solar cycles and can point to the critical impacts of Grand Solar Minimums, like the current one. There is a near precise correlation between these and the famines that have affected China for the last two millennia . Matching that timing has been the sequential overthrow of the Chinese dynasties. Xi Jinping’s planning is obvious and has been underway for at least ten years. He knows they have not done enough and are being forced to talk trade with Trump in order to get supplies from a US President who doesn’t yet know that he may not have the supplies to meet even a USD50 billion order (or so the American farmers believe). But for his government Xi knows what is coming is a potentially existential threat for the CCP.
But today I will restrict this email to Russia. Their space agency collects the same space weather data that NASA does in the USA. Putin’s principle adviser if the head of the Pulkovo observatory, and the head of the Russian space programme for the International Space Station – a guy called Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov.
I don’t want you to read this stuff at the link below in detail, but a glance would be informative. It is indicative of the depth of understanding the Russians have for a subject that is strictly banned in the Western media while, the UN pursues global hegemony – focused on warming rather than either the facts or the science. This is a link to some of his research…
The actions of the Russian Government are pretty transparent to anyone monitoring the international media (that part which is not affected by Soros, Turner, the Rothschilds and their affiliated three deep state cabals). While PM Scott Morrison of Australia recently took a firm line with the UN interference in Australian policy two weeks ago (and it never got into the NZ media), three months ago a lecture was given to the Russian press corps by Sergei Lavrov on what the government saw as the biggest existential threat to the Russian Federation – the New World Order being promoted by the UN and the same deep state actors that control the Western media.
Meantime, President Putin has focused his international diplomacy on making friends with every country to the South of Russia and with China. The Middle East is the new theatre of influence as Russia realises growing seasons will keep shortening. The strategy to capture the Crimean Peninsula was part of this as was his support for Syrian President Assad. Murmansk in the West, Syria in the South, Iran in the near East and Vladivostok in the East are strategically linked to the North by his six tiny ice-breakers (a joke)… each has two large nuclear power plants pushing huge propellers, and because the Western Siberian oilfield is substantially depleted, they are following the field offshore into the Kara Sea. So he has oil tankers to be towed through sheet ice from time to time. Here is a short video of one of them…does it look like he expects the Arctic Sea Ice to disappear any time soon?
At home the emergency food planning has been in place for some time. While Putin has made a big thing about helping the Chinese out, his resource is limited. But the build of granaries has been well under way and with Grand Solar Minimums the cold is not linear, there will be good years during the 11 year solar cycles and bad years …but more bad years than usual. Subject to restrictions and embargoes he is reducing the US dollar debt he is holding and converting it into gold, increasing Russia’s bullion holdings, year on year. He has built and deployed one floating nuclear power station which will be based in the Russian Arctic. More may follow.
Elsewhere in the Northern hemisphere, regional rivals, PM Modi and PM Khan also understand what is happening but their preparations are less effectual. Already hit by extensive flooding, peasant farmers will do the best they can.
The farming communities in Europe, USA, Japan and elsewhere are waking up because farmers are on the front line. Every time there are crop losses the farmers become twitchy. They lose their farms. In New Zealand, ours’ is a maritime climate and with warm seas (relatively) we have a farming holiday for a little while longer.
But for the entire continent of North America on average, the 2019 harvest will be a huge disaster. We have not been allowed by our news media to know that the period from October 2018 to May 2019 has been the coldest and also the wettest in over 100 years. With growing seasons shortening each year for the last three years. The Chinese are aware of this and yet they will still try to wring every shipload of oats, soya beans, corn, rice, hogs etc from the USA that they can get. They have also increased their buying from Canada, who will similarly experience difficulties meeting the Chinese purchase orders. This will affect New Zealand because when we changed Canterbury farms from cereals to dairy, we became dependent on Australia. This year Australia plans to import from Canada and will not be an exporter at all.
Some North American farmer blog sites are full of the unfolding drama. This particular farmer in the link below usually chronicles the moves in the weather extremes and comments on the harvest data. But in this link he unloads on the causation. From my knowledge of what is happening, he isn’t far wrong…
The Eddy Grand Solar Minimum is something we cannot change but we can plan for how it will affect our country. Perhaps the first thing for your shadow ministers is to understand that Anthropogenic Global Warming is just a fraud. It has nothing to do with the science or climate, because it is just about transference of the power of national governments to the UN.
The second thing is to have at least one of each of your assistant’s, take an interest in the data appearing on www.spaceweather.com . The left hand third of the web site pages is devoted to the unfolding statistics. The sun is now the quietest it has been since the beginning of the space age and this solar minimum is still deepening.
Can I draw your attention to my summary of the cause of climate change as per the two MS Word documents attached above.
You will see from that and the Farmer’s graphs that the true cause of the “Modern Warm Period” following the end of the “Little Ice Age” in about 1850, was the extraordinary solar activity of the 20th century. The sun was then its most active in at least 4,000 years. That isn’t hypothesis, it is published solar science.
I do hope you make good use of this or at least have your staff do so.
By Christmas we will probably know the true dimension of the unfolding crop losses. I hope I am wrong. The last time there was a Grand Solar Minimum (the Dalton Minimum) the global population was only about 950 million. Then most people grew their own food and did not have brittle supply chains and JIT planning. How will we get on with 7.7 billion?
It will be bad, but just how bad? We must wait for Christmas.

Subject: The truth always comes out sooner or later
Dear Prime Minister and Minister of Climate Change,
This email will provide people with an opportunity to choose sides, whether to be “part of the problem or part of the solution”.
I hope those who receive this long message will take the time to print it and its attachments, and also take the time to view any video footage it contains. You have had time to verify the science and there seems no point in allowing you to continue to attack the New Zealand economy in support of whatever your true ends may be. So I will publish this as widely as I can.
This email is about the New Zealand section of the biggest and most egregious political crime in human history, now requiring an urgent political solution. But I think many who receive this email will already know that. You also know that. Frankly the science is not complicated, it is simple.
Last week a sub-set of the world’s real scientists provided a rebuttal to the climate alarmism you espouse so fervently…
Yet you will ignore it and shrug off its logic. For me? I am just a fraud investigator, so I have sat between the competing perspectives of science, to form my own view of the facts irrespective of my financial interests. You will ignore these at your peril.
Please find attached above in two single page Word documents, the core summary of the climate facts, together with a copy of the satellite temperatures since the tamper-proof records began in 1979. There is no climate crisis. There is no man-made global warming. There is no need to demonise the naturally occurring gases CO2 and CH4 as pollutants, when they are both essential to the survival of all species on planet earth and already in short supply for plant life. There is no need to drive worried farmers to either depression or off their land.
My allegations of fraud against you are simple and easily substantiated by the facts of your complicity.
Supporting Background Information
15 years ago I started investigating this criminality from the standpoint of a believer in Anthropogenic Global Warming theory and wanted to know why people rebelled against a logical perspective of science that was claimed to be so settled. Alas, the first thing I discovered was the only reason the science was claimed to be “settled” was because it couldn’t stand any real scrutiny. It was always a simple political scam as scams go – as simple as the story of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”, where the mythical tailors wanting the king’s money, claimed only fools could see the King was wearing no clothes at all.
So by 2003 when the theory was comprehensively disproven, the UN IPCC backers changed the term for “Global Warming” to “Climate Change” and then set out to claim there was a consensus supporting the science…. and then began to demonise the vast body of serious scientists as “Climate Change Deniers”. The UN IPCC and their backers’ power base is so huge, obvious and corrupt, as they secured for their “anointed ones” 3 Nobel Peace Prizes and 1 Nobel Prize for Economics…and locked false scientific claims within Wikipedia. From BBC to “Stuff” no major media organisation will now allow the truth to be spoken.
How sick is that? Science is meant to thrive on scrutiny, yet this junk science does not.
The Great Global Warming Fraud has only been possible for four reasons…
1. We humans do warm our surroundings with a mixture of exotic and natural fuels.
2. We humans have no idea about the composition and chemistry of the air we breathe or how our exhalations are valued by other life forms. Air is simply taken for granted.
3. We humans are so successful that since 1750, humans and their livestock have gone from comprising about 7% of the world’s land mammals to over 98%; leaving a trail of species extinctions and pollution behind as we have done so. Now we worry about resource depletion and over-full waste sinks.
4. We want to do the right thing to “save the planet” and eagerly follow any sensible consensus on how to do that.
More than a year ago I started writing to the three of you (our NZ Government’s coalition leaders), to warn you that you could soon – by your actions – become accessories to the Great Global Warming Fraud. This was met with distain as per the attached message from Minister Shaw who seemed unfazed by the allegations of fraud I made… (see the Adobe file linked above). But I did recognise that as a well-rehearsed legal defence against probable fraud charges.
Because your responsible Minister prevaricated, I laid a complaint with the NZ Serious Fraud Office in April 2019 and followed that up with complaints about the misconduct of your Minister of Climate Change (and his political party) to the NZ Commerce Commission. On 15 May 2019, (see the fourth linked Word document above) I made sure you understood the substance of my complaint, by copy of a letter sent to Minister Shaw and your Deputy PM, which noted three causes of potential criminal action regarding your deliberate and false misrepresentations and the fact that criminality in another jurisdiction is no excuse for committing crimes within New Zealand…
The causes of action where you now stand accused ( or from your point of view, seek vindication) are simply…
1. That changes in the atmospheric content of carbon dioxide (“CO2”) have no impact on climate change.
2. That carbon dioxide (“CO2”) is not a pollutant, but a gas essential for all life on earth. CH4 rapidly converts to H2O and CO2, upon contact with the atmosphere.
3. Your “climate change” spending cannot possibly have any measurable impact on earth’s climate.
You, together with your international associates have dreamed up a non-existent crisis that will soon be revealed for all to see as a simple fraud from which the various Ponzi schemes grow and for a time will thrive – but to no legitimate purpose. When the weather once again changes into severe cooling mode, to reflect the ever-changing solar cycles that drive earth’s climate, the public will react against your obvious lies and lose confidence in you and all politicians.
Because I have some investments which may already be benefitting from the Great Global Warming Fraud, I was persuaded by some friends to call you to account. Frankly, I don’t want to benefit from your criminality, if your actions are proven to be so. Nor do I want to abandon my renewable energy investments.
But how did I go from being a believer in the well-orchestrated lies, to being an active sceptic, now demanding your immediate resignation?
1. In 1998 a survey of reputable scientists was performed that revealed 31,487, including more than 7,000 with PhD qualifications, had no time for the theory that the modern warming is man-made.
2. I found the regularly used mantra that “97% of all scientists supporting the UN IPCC science” to be a subsidiary fraud and when I looked at the sources being given for the fictional consensus, I found them to be total garbage.
3. The hyping of sea level change to a height which is thermodynamically impossible was a worry for me.
4. The reduction in Arctic sea ice extent is being over-hyped. These days the UN IPCC simply chooses dates to begin sea ice graphs at a date when the ice extent and thickness reached a cyclic maximum and thereby uses the subsequent downward trend to deliberately mislead the public. The UN IPCC sea ice graphs begin in 1979 when the earth’s climate had cooled significantly from the early 1940’s. If they had started in 1972 they would see that NASA has satellite photos of the sea ice at the end of that summer melt that were almost identical to the extent the satellite photo at the end of the 2018 summer melt. I have viewed all those photos and am aware the sea ice extent was far less in 1941 and 1942 when the Arctic convoys ferried supplies from the UK to Murmansk.
5. In the last 3 years the ice load on Greenland has grown by about 1.2 trillion tonnes. Where is that in the news? It does have an effect on sea levels whereas sea ice has no effect.
6. The polar bears were being hunted to extinction in 1967 and so in 1973 the Arctic Treaty nations placed a moratorium on hunting, save for limited Inuit rights in Canada. Since then their numbers have grown to the point where they now actively predate on Inuit villages, who want culling to be reintroduced. Polar bears survived and prospered during the Holocene climate maximum called the “Minoan Warm Period”, through the “Roman Warm Period” and the “Mediaeval Warm Period”. These warm periods were all considerably warmer than our climate is today. So fear mongering about the impact on polar bears from loss of sea ice is facile. The same with so-called “all time heat records” that can only be described in derisory terms.
6. When polar bears attack the huge herds of walrus on dry land, some walrus have throughout recorded history been seen to get pushed off cliffs by the crush of others. They breathe the same air that we do so they prefer to haul out in large numbers (for protection) on dry land near their shallow feeding grounds. We are told they are sad about climate change. How can they be? They are thriving, just like the polar bears.
7. Obviously naive funding agencies can get any report they want from venal scientists if those scientists’ tenure is at stake or they are paid enough. Lysenkoism is extant everywhere I look within the OECD and I despair when watching TV to see yet another phony scientist coming up with implausible studies, which have been funded on the sole basis that they will reinforce the UN IPCC disinformation.
What are the Russians, Indians and Chinese doing to comply with this man-made global warming hoax and with the Paris Accords? Heck, they don’t even believe the UN IPCC dogma even though they profit from it. They have each been preparing for the coming Grand Solar Minimum for at least the last 5-10 years. Look at their preparations. If you don’t believe me, you could try Googling the name of Dr Habibullo Abdussamatov (the scientist who runs the Pulkovo observatory and the Russia programmes on the International Space Station – Vladimir Putin listens to his advice) and you will be able to understand the Russian strategies in the Middle East, why they have built a fleet of nuclear powered ice breakers capable of towing oil tankers through 2 metre thick sheet ice, and why they needed to annex Crimea…all part of the same strategy. “Winter is coming, Jon Snow!”
It is the same with China and their “String of Pearls” and Silk Road construction, together with the diversification of food sources into South America and Africa. They are already in food trouble that will manifest this winter. They have records that show whenever there has been a cyclic “Grand Solar Minimum” over the last 2,000 years there has also been both famine and the collapse of China’s major dynasties. They accept Dr Abdussamatov’s conclusions, given the changes now underway. I can neither confirm nor reject those forecasts of approaching cold, but you must be made aware that others who have expert knowledge now consider them valid and urgent.
Check this desperate cry for help from Australian sceptics as they pay higher and higher power prices that are based on policies grounded on fraud and disinformation…(This is shown in the third attached Word document above)…
How many of those 31, 487 scientists who have dissented from the UN IPCC’s politically inspired disinformation programme are allowed to give TV or newspaper commentaries? Only one in a thousand. Each year, more of those who work on the mischievously inaccurate computer models on which the overhyped heating claims by the UN IPCC rest, defect to the sceptic camp providing information on how desperately flowed the models and resulting forecasts really are. The sceptics are either ignored or driven from their jobs, denied publication of their learned, peer reviewed scientific papers and treated like “holocaust deniers” by the likes of smug, self satisfied media presenters who refer to their legitimate scepticism by the derogatory term “Climate Change Deniers”. Sceptics are never allowed to write the truth about the subject of climate change by mainstream media publications (including such as the NZ Herald and other rags, in favour of “puff pieces” of no journalistic or scientific merit. These do get taken to print without question or scrutiny, as feedstock of alarmism from overseas newspapers and such climate experts as Past PM Helen Clark. But her late 2018 NZ Herald article did strike me as indicative that her actions should also have been under scrutiny during her term in office.
Finding such a cloud of obfuscation is “meat and veg.” to any true fraud investigator, this is the sort of stuff that points directly to a false narrative which is collapsing, as the lies become less and less credible to a greater proportion of those singled out to be its victims.
I believe I know what has caused the modern warming. I believe I know what is going to cause the imminent period of cooling. Sadly for whatever your political intentions may be, the feared cooling is already starting in the Northern hemisphere and were it not for the UN IPCC’s PR machine, everyone would already know about the threat this cooling poses to global food supplies – all too soon. Perhaps that will change, but there are signs that earth’s Thermosphere is thinning and cooling, so if that worries the people at NASA and NOAA, it should concern you too. If you actually do know this stuff, then throwing young school children into the front lines of your struggle looks more like an act of desperation and cowardice on your part … the last throw of the dice to deflect allegations of your government’s complicity in an international power play to assert UN control against the primacy of national sovereignty.
If you aspirations were honest, you would have asked the population to vote on whether they want our government to be dominated by the UN. Instead you choose to prostitute climate science as if it were a global emergency that only the UN could fix.
But whether it is warming or cooling, the changes to earth’s climate are only resulting from natural causes. If the truth does interest you, may I suggest you have your staff analyse and monitor the web site – www.spaceweather.com. Even NOAA, an organisation closely enmeshed in the UN IPCC web of influence, acknowledges that it is the space weather that drives earth’s climate. When you understand how that happens, you may understand why your political actions have been so egregious.
Your cohorts at the UN IPCC upped the ante last week, with their well-orchestrated disinformation. Seemingly expecting those among us who have actually taken the time to check the science, to retreat under the onslaught of a hysterical teenager and her handlers’ fantasies – ably augmented by the catastrophic alarmism delivered by the usual UN IPCC suspects – yet with attribution to no-one of substance and only peer-reviewed by “partners in crime”. This short video below captures the sequence including the obvious motivation, the lies and the truth, in one elegant 12 minute splurge…
The international resistance to your global and national scam has begun, and something approaching 50% of New Zealanders will already know or suspect the UN IPCC version of the truth is flawed, because many remember their tirade of concatenated alarmist scares have all failed to materialise. Most people are now too scared to confess their appreciation of the truth in case you label their words as “Hate Speech”. Yes, I too have a list of those UN IPCC linked alarmist lies that date back to 1989 when the UN IPCC first started. But also beyond that to when the same “new World Order” posers were trying to set up a coming ice age as the platform for a UN global takeover…
Nowadays, many celebrities squander their good names and reputations to underwrite the fraud. To what end? They, and even Sir David Attenborough cannot possibly know the scientific facts, even though they talk of the “settled science” with such authority. That is, unless they too are implicated in the dastardly criminality.
For Joseph Stalin, the use of children and adults who went along with him but were never really aware of what he was doing, led Stalin to coin the term “Useful Idiots”. Are our MPs, as well as our own children and grandchildren to be treated as those too?
I know you believe that because you are “saving the planet” you can alienate us all from the basic truths of science in the same fashion as Chairman Mao used the “Cultural revolution” for. But that seldom works for long. All you need to do is to provide us sceptics with empirical evidence which proves that changes in atmospheric CO2 cause climate change. We will melt into the night if you do that. But I know you cannot do that, because I am able to prove why CO2 – at its molecular level – cannot have any measurable effect on climate, compared say to clouds and water vapour. The sceptics can never be met in a public debate for one reason, the UN IPCC is now unable to defend the indefensible. If you feel lucky, try to prove me wrong.
So 30 years after the fraud was dreamed up, there is still no evidence that CO2 does what the UN IPCC says it does, and yet you are prepared to near-bankrupt this country because you conveniently claim you are only taking someone else’s lies on faith? What sort of Prime Minister would someone be, if they did that? For Minister of Climate Change I envisage the title of “King Canute” will be used by the mob when it turns on him, once the true science is generally known. Frankly the science is not complicated, it is simple.
I believe it is contrary to your fiduciary duty of care as PM to stir up fear among workers, farmers, parents and children alike, and for you to preside over an education system that teaches fake science. Science is not a popularity contest, it is about facts. Please also find below a list that chronicles the truth about alarmist falsehoods, to set our children’s minds at ease.

Perhaps it is time for you to come clean. But you must now defend your crime against the New Zealand people in your Parliament or prove me wrong with the substance of my complaints to the SFO and ComCom.
I would be happy to be able to apologise to you and Minister Shaw, because I know from history that warmth is good… and that cold is very bad for humanity.
The next move is over to you and your parliamentary colleagues.
I hope you place some weight on the truth and avoid the urge to attack the messenger. After all, I am only saying what many thousands of Kiwis would like to be saying to you.
Stop telling blatant lies.

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 KEY REFERENCE sources:
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.
