Australian skeptics outnumber believers say OECD. Globally, 63% don’t want their dollars spent on the environment…
The bottom line is that a third of people are concerned enough to be willing to act, a third say they are concerned but are only paying it lip service, and a third are openly skeptical. What matters is that 63% of people around the world don’t want their governments to take any money from them to address environmental issues. There is constant media spin that skeptics are a tiny fringe minority. (See Al Gore deny a third of the population. See the BBC call them mavericks and say they give too much weight to “fringe views”.) The marketeers pushing the meme know that many people are swayed away from “extreme” views and towards the dominant paradigm. Life is just “easier” if you follow the herd, so the big-scare campaign scores a free kick if the public believe that skeptics are rare. If the media reported the situation accurately, more people would be happy to sit in the “skeptical” camp as it would be perceived as equally valid. As usual, those who believe in man-made global warming use every deceptive trick to push their policy, while skeptics simply benefit if the truth is told. While skeptics just outnumber believers in Australia, around the world about a third of the population is openly skeptical and more say they believe. Campaigners may pool the 46% of people who are are “environmentally motivated” with the 20% who are “technological optimists” (who believe technology will solve environmental problems) to get 66%. That would make two thirds of the population “believers” — but what does “believer” mean when 63% of the population does not want government policies to cost them a cent? It means they don’t believe very much.

Twenty Two Years Of No Actual Global Warming

Posted on June 9, 2013by stevengoddard

RSS shows 17 years of flat temperatures, but it is worse than it seems.

In 1991, Mt Pinatubo erupted  -reducing the amount of sunlight hitting the earth’s surface. This masked three years of El Ninos, and depressed global temperatures by about half a degree from 1991 through 1994. Without the eruption’s effects, temperatures would be flat to down for the past 22 years.

4 Hiroshima sized nukes going off every second.....365 days a year.


That is the extra energy equivalent trapped by extra CO2 from man burning of fossil fuels over the last 100 years.


Where did the energy go?

90% went into the oceans,
Others went to conversion of permanent frost into water and transition phases of ice to water to vapor ......and about 5% to heating the atmosphere.

In fact the whole process, the whole science is well understood.
