The rise and fall of Al Gore and Global Warming
Watts Up With That? ^ | July 22, 2012 | Anthony Watts

I noticed with my morning coffee that Tom Nelson had a Google Trends graph that piqued my interest, so I decided to expand upon it a bit before getting back to work. After looking at my results, the title of this post could just as easily be “off the radar”. Have a look:

You can clearly see when An Inconvenient Truth was released, the 2007 IPCC report and subsequent Nobel prize, and when Climategate occurred. That Gore blip in the summer of 2010 was the “Sex Poodle” episode.

Here’s a similar graph with the maximum number of relevant phrases plotted, along with some news items that mark the timeline:

It looks like the Australian capital is the number one ranked city for climate alarmism based on search volume for “climate change”:

1. Canberra, Australia
2. Adelaide, Australia
3. Sydney, Australia
4. Brisbane, Australia
5. Perth, Australia
6. Manila, Philippines
7. Melbourne, Australia
8. Washington, DC, USA
9. Auckland, New Zealand
10. Edinburgh, United Kingdom

But why? Searching on the term “carbon trading” could shed some light:

1. Canberra, Australia
2. Nairobi, Kenya
3. Sydney, Australia
4. Adelaide, Australia
5. Perth, Australia
6. Brisbane, Australia
7. Melbourne, Australia
8. Mumbai, India
9. New Delhi, India
10. Singapore, Singapore

Huh? Why did the people of Nairobi suddenly become so interested in carbon trading? This could be why:

Hmmm, interesting. So which cities are the most interested in the search term “carbon credits”?

1. Mahape, India
2. Mumbai, India
3. Auckland, New Zealand
4. Johannesburg, South Africa
5. New Delhi, India
6. Chennai, India
7. Sydney, Australia
8. Brisbane, Australia
9. Vancouver, Canada
10. Melbourne, Australia

Okay. So why are Indians so interested in carbon credits? Oh yeah…

“What has leaked just confirms our view that in its present form the CDM is basically a farce,” says Eva Filzmoser, programme director of CDM Watch, a Brussels-based watchdog organization. The revelations imply that millions of tonnes of claimed reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions are mere phantoms, she says, and potentially cast doubt over the principle of carbon trading. “In the face of these comments it is no wonder that the United States has backed away from emission trading,” Filzmoser says.

The cable, written on 16 July 2008, was sent by the US consulate in Mumbai, India, to the US secretary of state, and summarizes a discussion of the CDM involving representatives of the consulate and the US Government Accountability Office, along with Indian officials and executives of large Indian companies. At the time, 346 Indian projects had been registered with the CDM’s executive board. Today, more than 720 Indian projects have been approved and have gained some 120 million tonnes’ worth of carbon credits, a large fraction of the 750 million tonnes issued since 2005.

I think we’ve gone far enough down the climate change rabbit hole… for now.

Global warming/climate change is a very important recent topic in Australia. The Labour government under PM Julia Galliard has imposed a highly unpopular $20 billion carbon tax. This carbon tax is being actively opposed by the Galileo Movement which is actively pushing to "ax the tax".. The Galileo Movement has produced a series of videos that destroy all the carbon is changing our climate hype. Galileo Movement website

And when one views any graph or sheet of raw or messaged data one has to take into consideration how much of a "warming factor" effects the models, as well as the skewed data gathering which is no longer reliable based on so many stations closed down over the years and so many stations concentrated within the urban heat centers.
In short. I tend to doubt with all we have viewed over the past few years that there was even any global warming effect in the reality of things.
If anything as we have observed in some recent reporting, the trend most likely is a gradual global cooling cycle. Especially over the past few years as the sun has gone to sleep.

Al Gore should be hung by his testicles for foisting this BS on the world...

Imagine what our country would be like if AGW was considered the same as flat earth theory....

They can’t win at the ballot box so they invent agenda driven junk science frauds to promote their communism.

Pray for America
