Delingpole: Aussie ex-PM Abbott Slams Climate Change ‘Religion’

Delingpole: Aussie ex-PM Abbott Slams Climate Change ‘Religion’:

Climate change is a religion whose followers behave like members of the Inquisition; it’s a condition where the cure is causing far more damage than the alleged disease; it’s a recipe for killing jobs, lowering standards of living and hurting the poor…

Some of us knew this already. But you rarely hear it so trenchantly expressed by a former world leader – as it was in London yesterday by Aussie ex-Prime Minister Tony Abbott in a hard-hitting, must-read speech for the Global Warming Policy Foundation.

Snowstorm leaves 102 000 Xcel customers without power in Denver, Colorado:

A total of 102 500 homes and businesses in Denver metro area were left without electricity on Sunday and Monday, October 8 and 9, 2017 after the first snowstorm of the season hit parts of Wyoming, Colorado, and Nebraska. This was Denver’s earliest first snow of the season since 2012.

Named Winter Storm Aiden by The Weather Channel, the storm caused travel problems across the three states and brought first accumulating snow of the season to Denver metro area where its heavy, wet snow caused power lines to snap, leaving widespread power outages from Boulder to Parker.

According to Xcel Energy Colorado, a total of 102 500 customers lost power because of the storm, about 56 000 for a sustained period (from at least 5 minutes to as long as several hours).

Record Arctic Sea Ice Growth In September – #Global Cooling, #ClimateChange, #GlobalWarming

Inconvenient? Record Arctic Sea Ice Growth In September:

According to data from The Danish Meteorological Institute, since hitting its earliest minimum extent since 1997, Arctic sea ice has been expanding at a phenomenal rate.

http://ocean.dmi.dk/arctic/icecover.uk.php

As notalotofpeopleknowthat blog details, it is already greater than at the same date in 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2015.

Put another way, it is the fourth highest extent in the last ten years.

Even more remarkably, ice growth since the start of the month is actually the greatest on record, since daily figures started to be kept in 1987.
