Global warming is a bust so what will the Greens do now?

Recent scientific evidence that the earth is cooling means the collapse of the flimsy house of cards that is global warming.

The Green party is focussed on preventing global warming, and they are committed to curtailing the so-called disastrous man-made CO2 emissions.?

Can’t argue with science.

But someone, somewhere got the numbers wrong, and the myth of global warming that began in 1987 is perpetuated.

Dr Muriel Newman writing for the NZ Centre for Political Research puts New Zealand’s man-made CO2 emissions into perspective. Quote.

… using the grain of rice analogy, our 0.17 percent contribution to?global man-made?greenhouse gases is equivalent to a 0.03 portion of a single grain of rice and is too small to see. End of quote.

Dr Newman also refers to a 2016 report by New Zealand engineer Emeritus Professor Michael Kelly of Cambridge University, which was rejected by both the?Journal of the Royal Society of New Zealand?and the?Journal of New Zealand Studies, not because they could fault the scientific basis of his findings but because they did not like his conclusions – that New Zealand’s efforts to reduce C02 emissions are ineffectual, a waste of money and should be debated before proceeding any further.??Quote.?

I am publishing the original paper and the redacted referees? reports?here?to show how serious debate is being suppressed. As a direct result of stifled debate, New Zealand is taking steps of great and certain futility and destruction of capital value. End of quote.

When the media bothers to examine the scientific evidence fairly and the public does its own research, maybe the government will be forced to wake up and the Greens will wonder what purpose they have left.?

Here?are their goals, from the Green Party website, which are being implemented by the Coalition of Losers. Quote.

Green Party will:

  1. Pass a Zero Carbon Act, putting into law the goal of net zero emissions by 2050.

  2. Establish an independent Climate Commission to guide government decisions.

  3. Establish a Kiwi Climate Fund to replace the failed Emissions Trading Scheme. This will put a charge on climate pollution, including from agriculture; provide a guaranteed payment for people who plant trees, and recycle all surplus revenue back to New Zealanders via a dividend payout ($250 per person in 2020).

  4. Support the planting of 1.2 billion trees over 1.1 million hectares of erosion-prone land and provide $40 million for native forest regeneration.

  5. Commit to 100 percent renewable electricity by 2030.

  6. Create a $100 million?Green Infrastructure Fund?to kick-start private investment in new, clean infrastructure and industries.

  7. Commit to no new coal mines, fracking or deep-sea oil and gas drilling.

  8. Divest public investment funds?(e.g. the Super Fund and ACC Fund) from companies involved in fossil fuel exploration, mining, and production.

  9. Invest in multiple new electric rail lines in?Auckland?and?Wellington.

  10. Fully electrify the rail line?between Auckland, Hamilton, and Wellington.

  11. Set ambitious emission standards for imported vehicles.

  12. Invest $1 billion for 10 years to create safe cycling in all major cities and towns.

  13. Create a?new humanitarian visa for Pacific peoples?displaced by climate change.

These are huge financial commitments to attempt to curtail global warming. Quote.

According to former Reserve Bank economist Ian Harrison, the cost of reducing our infinitesimal greenhouse gas contribution is expected to be in the region of $200 billion. End of quote.

So global warming is a myth; billions of dollars have been wasted, along with the loss of billions more from disincentivised farming and the closure?of the coal mining and the oil and gas industries. Quote.

The government’s economic analysis?shows?that under their proposed plan, the agriculture sector could face reductions of up to?65 percent. This is in spite of article 2 of the Paris Accord specifically requiring nations to reduce emissions ?in a manner that does not threaten food production?.End of quote.

So busting the myth of global warming has immediate financial benefits in terms of saving money and creating revenue from re-investment in neglected financial opportunities. Quote.

It remains to be seen whether New Zealanders will decide the price of the Government?s climate extremism is too high and say enough is enough.

The French President has just backed down from raising fuel taxes as a key part of his decarbonisation plan, following extreme protests that had the potential to destabilise the country.” End of quote.

Will it take a similar amount of protest from a disenchanted public to put the brakes on our global warming nonsense, or do we just keep chipping away, enlightening one person at a time?
