California’s “leading” climate change fighting partner China funds coal plants in Indonesia violating Paris agreement

California’s “leading” climate change fighting partner China funds coal plants in Indonesia violating Paris agreement:

Governor Brown who claims that China is “leading” the fight against climate change alongside California seems incredibly oblivious to the reality that China is committed to building hundreds of new coal plants as addressed in a recent New York Times article.

Adding to the Governor’s embarrassment over his phony China climate change fighting claims The Christian Science Monitor has just published an article charging that Japan, China and South Korea are violating the Paris climate agreement by funding coal projects in Indonesia.

Caught Red-Handed: Google Search Suppresses Climate Realism

Caught Red-Handed: Google Search Suppresses Climate Realism:

Claims that Google Search improperly downranks some websites are frequent but not always correct, and they’re hard to prove even if they are. But the latest available (May 2017) Google Search Quality Evaluation General Guidelines provide conclusive proof of intentional, severe, and malicious suppression of climate realist views.  A quote:

“High quality information pages on scientific topics should represent well established scientific consensus on issues where such consensus exists.” (Section 3.2)

But the allegations of “scientific consensus” are made only in one field – climate alarmism!  “Scientific consensus” is almost an oxymoron.  Consensus is a decision-making method used outside of science.  This language is inserted in the guidelines with only one purpose – to eliminate climate realism websites from the results, shown to Google Search users.  This discrimination is exacerbated by classifying “news about important topics such as international events, business, politics, science, and technology;” as Your Money or Your Life (YMYL) Pages, for which Google claims to have especially high quality standards.  Classification of news as Your Money or Your Life Pages (which includes medical, legal, financial, and safety advice) is obviously intended to suppress political information that differs from the opinions of the leftstream media and Wikipedia, which Google considers the guardians of truth.  That is why WUWT and other climate realism websites are so well hidden by Google Search.

“They May Have Information We Don’t” – Are The Elite Preparing For A Cataclysmic Event?:

As the world appears to be getting closer to the brink of widespread economic collapse and war, it seems we may all have something even more serious to consider: cataclysmic events.

Based on a flurry of reports, we know the Yellowstone Super Caldera has been quite active in recent weeks, with many warning that a super volcanic eruption could happen at any moment, threatening to potentially kill millions. Such an event would not be unprecedented according to scientists who subscribe to the Toba catastrophe theory, we suggests that a similar eruption may have been responsible for a near Extinction Level Event (ELE)  75,000 years ago that bottle-necked the human population down to about 10,000 people worldwide.

Fastest Decline In Solar Activity In 9,300 Years!!!

Fastest decline in solar activity in 9,300 years:

Could signal a descent into Maunder Minimum-like conditions.

*****

“The recent prolonged solar minimum and subsequent weak solar cycle 24 have led to suggestions that the grand solar maximum may be at an end,” says this study on nature.com.

The study,  published in 2015, looked at past variations of solar activity. In 2010, the study found, scientists estimated a mere 8% chance of a return to Maunder Minimum-like conditions within the next 40 years.

However, “the decline in solar activity has continued, to the time of writing, and is faster than any other such decline in 9,300 years. (Italics added)

Vostok ice cores prove that CO2 was not the driver – CO2 changes come AFTER the temperature changes

Vostok ice cores prove that CO2 was not the driver:

CO2 changes come AFTER the temperature changes.

“While the CO2 and temperature go up – somewhat – together,  when the temperature plummets after each peak, the CO2 stays high!” says reader Jimmy Walter.’

“If CO2 were the driver, the temperature could not drop!”
