After Climategate: Carbongate?

As the Copenhagen summit wears on, the scale of the scam that is being perpetrated on the world is only now coming into focus.

Strike one...

Last week we blogged the news that estimates put 90% of the EUnion carbon trade as fraudulent. EUnion carbon credits are massively used as currency in a VAT (Dutch: BTW) evasion scheme, costing tax-payers about €5 billion.

Strike two...

Nearing the end of last week, EURef was hot on the case of Tata steel (Corus), which stands to earn £1.2 billion by closing a steel factory in the UK. The twist here is that the carbon credits awarded to the factory will remain in the possession of Tata steel, who have already indicated they will sell them off.

Following up, Christopher Booker in his column and EURef explain the links that exist between the Tata group and the UNs top climatologist railway engineer Rajendra Pachauri. Indeed the links are so close that WND is calling it as it sees it: U.N. climate chief cashes in on carbon. And in yet another follow-up Mr. North concludes: All roads lead to Pachauri.

Strike three...

And now, news reaches us (again via EURef) that in Australia, a previous government has 'gamed' the system of carbon credits as per the Kyoto protocol, to hide the fact that Aussie CO2 emissions rose by 30% over the last two decades, and come up with a seemingly admirable 9% increase of carbon emissions over 1990 levels.

The Australian government was able to do this by hatching a plot, already dubbed 'Carbongate' or 'the Great Carbon Heist', which consisted of a two-part trick. The first part was a special 'Australian clause' in the Kyoto accords, saying that the level of emissions from land clearing in 1990 were part of Australia's base line emission.

The second part of the trick was introducing (seemingly unrelated) legislation which prohibited Australian farmers from clearing land, a staggering 109 million hectares of privately owned land. For which farmers were never compensated, since the land was not technically expropriated. Thus the Australian government effectively “stole’ what has amounted to 83.7 million tonnes of Carbon Credits from private individual landholders and is the sole reason that todays Labor Prime Minister can be heralded as a true warrior of climate change with Australia having met its Kyoto obligation – cost free.

... And you're out?

The three strikes in this post happened all under the aegis of the Kyoto accords. Copenhagen is going to be even more monstrous, with absolutely no effect on the climate. The only thing it will do is to make the lives of ordinary citizens more and more expensive, with 'green' taxes on energy and increased prices on everything else, because factories will pass the costs of emission trading schemes and carbon credits on to customers.

And it is going to make a few, very unworthy, people unimaginably rich. Like Al Gore or Dr. Pachauri. It is the scam to end all scams, the mother of all scams, the... It is BIG! And we should be angry. Murderously angry!

Are you angry about this obvious fraud and the national media's complicity in the cover-up, misinformation, reframing and misdirection of the issue? Take responsibility and take action. STOP all donations to the political party(s) responsible for this fraud. STOP donations to all environmental groups which funded this Global Warming propaganda campaign with our money, especially The Environmental Defense Fund. They have violated the public trust. KEEP donations local, close to home. MAKE donations to Oklahoma’s Senator Inhofe, the only politician to stand firmly against this obvious government/media coordinated information operation (propaganda) targeted at its own people. People that government leaders and employees are sworn to protect. WRITE your state and federal representatives demanding wall to wall investigations of government sponsored funding and coordination of this and related propaganda campaigns and demand indictments of those responsible. WRITE your state and federal Attorneys General demanding Al Gore and others conducting Global Warming/Climate Change racketeering and mail fraud operations be brought to justice, indicted, tried, convicted and jailed. Carbon is the stuff of life. He (Obama) who controls carbon, especially CO2, controls the world. Think of the consequences if you do nothing! For one, the UK is becoming the poster child for George Orwell’s “1984” and the US government’s sponsorship of this worldwide Global Warming propaganda campaign puts it in a class with the failed Soviet Union’s relentless violation of the basic human right to truthful government generated information. Given ClimateGate’s burgeoning revelations of outrageous government misconduct and massive covert misinformation, what are the chances that this Administration’s National Health Care sales campaign is anywhere near the truth?

So what we have is that only is trade in Carbon a fabricated trade, with no relation to wealth, and therefore a fraud, but the fraud itself is being worked fraudulently.

Copenhagen: A climate of manipulation
Piers Akerman - Saturday, December 12, 2009 at 06:11pm

NATIONAL leaders will this week launch the greatest slush fund the world has ever seen - and Prime Minister Kevin Rudd will be adding your money to the pile.

Some naive folk, who probably still don’t understand that governments do not, in fact, make money of their own but merely take what has been earned by others and redistribute it to causes they think will win them the most votes, may believe that the wealth redistribution will actually lower the temperature of the planet.

There is no evidence, scientific or otherwise, that this will happen. The only certainty is that billions will be ripped off by bankers and other middle men before the remainder arrives in the Third World to be looted by a line-up of dictators and tyrants.
An Australian analyst, Joanne Nova, produced a report based on official figures (available at the website of the Science and Public Policy Institute) to show that US federal spending on climate change alone since 1991 had been $79 billion, that the cost of international carbon trading last year topped $126 billion and would soon amount to trillions, making buying and selling the right to emit CO2 “the largest single commodity traded’’ in the world.

No wonder merchant banks, commodity dealers, the asset rippers, derivatives market dealers, finance companies who own media giants, and a host of sharks and hyenas, are getting ready for what will be the greatest wholesale looting of the public purse. It will be the greatest scam in history, as it will be the taxpayers wealth, real wealth and not paper money, that will be looted. Real money will be siphoned from your accounts via ever increasing energy bills. Pay up or freeze. Oh yes freeze. That is the beauty of this scam - you pay higher energy bills because of a supposed AGW, as well as for the planet actually getting cooler.

Edit changes do not seem to work, or they are taking a huge amount of time for a very simple change.

An interesting article on Carbon credits In the India's Business Standard magazine.

But what struck me was this

India, on its part, has generated around 30 million carbon credits, and approximately 140 million are in pipeline. Around 225 Indian projects in the fields of biomass, cogeneration, hydropower, and wind power with a potential of 225 million CERs have been registered. Carbon offsets from solid waste projects, too, will see a rise. At present, the Indian solid waste management market is witnessing tremendous growth. Currently it is valued at around $155.56 million (Rs 728 crore) and is expected to grow at a rate of around 20 to 25 per cent in the next three to five years.

Waste management??? Could this be SHIT. I mean, is there a futures market in SHIT?

DP111 zei

On the other hand, there may still not be a futures market in SHIT. This could be a niche market opening (The mind boggles).

KV, this could be our chance to make billions.

Sir Henry Morgan zei

Actually DP, there is a good living to be made in the SHIT industry. One of my brothers-in-law is employed as a quantity surveyor in the SHIT-processing industry (quantities of processing equipment). He has no fears of future redundancy - there is a continuously growing population of people (60 million to date in the UK, and no sign of doing anything other than increasing) who participate in the SHIT processing industry on at least a daily basis.

You bet your life there's money in SHIT.

OT KV - The French are now introducing the female equality rules Holland and the UK have recently been pushing, so yes, we can fairly safely say this is coming out of Brussels (along with your recent take on drink/drive alcohol co-ordination between countries).

I was referring to the Futures Market in SHIT.

Good to hear from you though.

Happy Christmas SHM.

This lecture by Jasper Kirkby of CERN, is well worth listening to. It shows the difference between the bean counters at UEA and at the MET, and the physicist Jasper Kirkby. What is immediately noticeable is the humility with which Jasper Kirkby approaches the subject - a trait of pyhsicists, well aware of the complexity of the dynamics of nature on its own. ... physicists

Further on Jasper Kirkby, from the National post.

Jasper Kirkby is a superb scientist, but he has been a lousy politician. In 1998, anticipating he'd be leading a path-breaking experiment into the sun's role in global warming, he made the mistake of stating that the sun and cosmic rays "will probably be able to account for somewhere between a half and the whole of the increase in the Earth's temperature that we have seen in the last century." Global warming, he theorized, may be part of a natural cycle in the Earth's temperature.

Dr. Kirkby was immediately condemned by climate scientists for minimizing the role of human beings in global warming. Stories in the media disparaged Dr. Kirkby by citing scientists who feared oil-industry lobbyists would use his statements to discredit the greenhouse effect. And the funding approval for Dr. Kirkby's path-breaking experiment -- seemingly a sure thing when he first announced his proposal-- was put on ice. ... 672ed1f684

Read the lot.

Considering the amounts of money involved, the scams, the political patronage and all the rest, the last thing one wants is some physicist showing climate change as a natural phenomeno
