Thanks to Australian colleague, Professor Cliff Ollier, we are able to post papers from the Porto Climate Conference 2018 (7/8 September) held at Porto University, Portugal. These papers are a veritable treasure trove of the scientific realities of climate change, countering all of the alarmist propaganda topics. Papers begin at page 9, download takes a few seconds, but well worth reading in full.

Our American NZCSC member, Dr David Wojick posts at CFact about growing recognition of the Magna Carta Universatum 2020 issued recently by CLINTEL (Climate Intelligence Foundation) in which he states: "The climate science community ought to be more honest to the public about the severe limitations of their theoretical models."
This is a video with clearty credible slides of a lecture to the University of Dublin by the distinguished American climatologist Dr John Christy, of the University o\f Alabama which completely debunks alarmist claims of an alleged "climate crisis".

From New Zealand comes a brilliant poetical put-down of the"global warming". Well known NZ iconoclast, John Ansell has a brilliant put-down of the scam and its origins. (Note: the reference 'Go to Vic to watch ‘debate’ refers to Victoria University of Wellington, home of many of New Zealad's climate hysteria fomenters.
September 14 was the 14th day when no sunsports were observed. For 400 years a record of numbers of sunspots has been recorded in recurring solar cycles. This method appears to hone in on one forecast and one forecast alone: a cold and snowy future — one akin to the Maunder Minimum (1645-1715), the previous prolonged spell of low solar output and the previous ‘full blown’ Grand Solar Minimum. This post explains what this could mean for the future of Earth's climate.
A 'Happy Easter' posting on NZ blog Whaleoil: "As Eric Idle of Monty Python fame said, 'always look on the bright side of life'. There is so much gloom and doom pedalled by the MSM because it sells better. When it comes to climate change scientists actually increase their institution’s cash flow if they proclaim something catastrophic and threatening. So this is dedicated to Eric … “always look on the bright side of climate change, especially CO2 increases”.
Canadian climatologist Dr Tim Ball posts at Technocracy News and Trends: "This is an update of an earlier effort to counter the propaganda war that is going on to promote the falsehoods about the environment and climate. An update is required because skills improved with practice and as they lose the war, desperation demands greater deceptions. Technocrats are at the center of this development."
Australian geologist Peter Purcell produces evidence that many Pacific Islands, rather than sinking as claimed by climate alarmists and some money-hungry island leaders, are actually increasing in size due to a combination of the intrinsic nature of atolls and Pacific-area tectonic plate movements.
Professor Larry Bell writes at 'Newsmax': All of us nice people enthusiastically support educating and encouraging children about the importance of environmental stewardship. It's quite a different matter, however, to fill their precious minds with fearful fantasies that global survival depends upon solving a mythical climate crisis with magical energy solutions."
Bjorn Lomborg writes about energy solutions to "climate change" in The Australian: "This idea that we already have the needed technology is so pervasive that before we can establish what the solution to climate change really looks like, we first need to dismantle the faulty idea that we have the solution already. The reality is, today, solar and wind energy together deliver only about 1 per cent of global energy. The International Energy Agency estimates that even by 2040 these will cover a little more than 4 per cent of global energy."
The [UN]IPCC report is a fairy tale concerning the dangers of human-caused climate change, and a wish fulfillment fantasy concerning the world’s ability to reduce the use of fossil fuels while simultaneously eliminating poverty. This Non-Intergovernmental report explains why.
Emeritus Professor Clifford Ollier writes at QUAESTIONES GEOGRAPHICAE: "The oceans are not acid, never have been in geological history, and cannot become acid in the future. Changes in atmospheric CO2 cannot produce an acid ocean. Marine life depends on CO2, and some plants and animals fix it as limestone. Over geological time enormous amounts of CO2 have been sequestered by living things, and today there is far more CO2 in limestones than in the atmosphere or ocean. Carbon dioxide in seawater does not dissolve coral reefs, but is essential to their survival."
Outspoken columnist of New Zealand blog, TheBFD, Lushington Brady posts: "Listening to the apocalyptic shrieking of the Klimate Kids and the Extinction Rebellion nutters, it is clear that they are not staggeringly ignorant of “the science” they fetishise, but completely and utterly divorced from anything approaching reality. Like old-fashioned fire-and-brimstone preachers, scowling teenagers rant about the fire, tribulation and wailing and teeth-gnashing which awaits us climate sinners. But the strictly empirical evidence to date is that the mild warming of the 20th century has been extremely beneficial. The world has greened, fires have declined dramatically, natural disasters like cyclones have decreased, droughts have remained stable or decreased, and food is ever-more abundant."
"Honest, competent scientists should have no reason to close out opportunities for open discussion regarding claims that appear to be disproven by readily verifiable observations." Writing at Newsmax, Professor Larry Bell quotes three examples associated with climate change.
"Contrary to expectations, climate scientists continue to report that large regions of the Earth have not been warming in recent decades." Kenneth Richards popsts at PrincipiaScientific International.
Professor Larry Bell writes at Newsmax how his numerous scientific friends wonder why major print and broadcast reports fail to note that, other than two El Niños (which have nothing whatsoever to do with greenhouse gases), no statistically significant global warming has occurred since the time most of today’s college sophomore students were born.
Christopher Booker writes in the UK's 'Daily Mail': "The real question is why do our gullible politicians constantly deceive themselves and the rest of us with their endless, ever-more costly ‘green’ schemes which turn out to be nothing of the kind and actually increase pollution? ....It’s as if the political class’s obsession with global warming rots their brains — for which the rest of us have to pay a very heavy price.
"We know there is simply no basis for climate alarm. All 'scientific' predictions have failed, life has survived happily with much higher CO2 in the past, the medieval warming period a thousand years ago was much warmer than today, the small temperature variations of the 20th century are easily explained by natural causes, and the IPCC reports confirm that there is no increase in extreme weather events and no economic harm from CO2. And yet the hysteria is increasing by the day." Sanjeev Sahblok, leader of the Swarna Bharat Party writes in The Times of India. (Note: slight error about the middle when he incorrectly names Maurice Strong as "Michael")
Telling how and why the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) originated, Dr Ed Berry writes in the U.S.: "IPCC and climate alarmists have abandoned the time-tested scientific method. They exclude evidence that proves their theory is wrong. This is 'confirmation bias' and it contradicts the scientific method. In true science, proof that a theory is wrong prevails over all opinions, consensus, and so-called evidence used to support the theory. The proof is simple. Simple inspection of IPCC’s 2013 report shows IPCC made gross errors in its calculation of the human carbon cycle."
