Well yes, but…

One can imagine how painful it must have been for Little Lou at the Barclay Brother Beano to write these words

‘Glaciers have grown in western Norway, New Zealand’s South Island, parts of Asia and the Tierra del Fuego in South America.’

That is a very global and hemispheric spread there and in those 21 words we see a flat contradiction, through observation rather than computer modelling, of the ‘global warming’ narrative. The warming is clearly not global at all. If glaciers are growing then the obvious conclusion is that those areas are cooling. Unless of course you are Al Gore or the Met Office, in which case cooling is evidence of warming. No, really.

But being a committed true believer and having an agenda to advance, it was quickly on to the ‘Yes, but…’ for fearless Telegraph press release cut and paster, Louise Gray, as she devoted the remaining 329 words of her article to spreading the official warmist line in the worst tradition of the most repugnant propagandists. In fairness readers of the Barclay Bro. Beano are permitted to wave at the reference to Glaciergate as it passes by at startling velocity thus:

‘The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a separate science body attached to the UN, was forced to admit that a previous report was wrong to claim the Himalayan glaciers will melt by 2035.’

But that’s it. For La Gray the mission is to do the bare minimum by including a factoid that allows her to deny lack of balance, then swifty divert attention from the embarrassing shoddy science, non existant peer review and the IPCC’s desire to accept any half baked claim as long as it adds to the propaganda effort. The counter evidence has to be rebutted, downplayed, given short shrift, airbrushed from the record. And that is exactly what Gray does by immediately adding:

However the new report made clear that glaciers are being lost in the region, albeit on a slower scale.

So that’s that then. The message from warmist central is move along. Nothing to see here. We screwed up our propaganda effort with a report that was so obviously riddled with fiction and hysteria it was torn to shreds, so we have substituted it with another report drafted at breakneck speed saying the same thing – only without the time sensitive prediction that showed us up as the delusional idiots with vested interests we are. No matter what the observation or the evidence says we will continue to force our unjustified and laughable claims down your throat.

Meanwhile the farce of Cancun continues unabated – despite the irony of the resort experiencing a record low temperature for this time of the year of 54F yesterday morning – as the great and the good from every special interest group with hands in the climate change money jar talk about the environment but focus on how to get more of our cash into their accounts. Laughing at them is not enough. We have to stop them before they destroy our economies and our way of life.

As for the increasingly desperate propagandists at the Beano, bring on that paywall!

    Interesting post – keep them coming.
    Mildly off topic – but nearly forty years ago, a philosopher friend told me that the definition of normal human behaviour was becoming narrower and there was no reason to suppose that it wouldn’t get narrower still. He was right – a significant part of climate alarmist seems to be all about punishing and restricting normal human behaviour.
    For the professionals who promote climate alarmism, there are financial and professional gains, but for others there is something else – there is the tantalising offer of personal security. For this latter group of people, the big plus seems to be an infantile promise of personal safety to be achieved via a fantastically narrow notion of acceptable human behaviour. If this is the appeal, then it may be hard to dislodge.

    I’m glad you’re dubious of the telegraph. I’ve been calling it the Labourgraph for years (a bit harshly really) but they do have their agenda, just like the beeb; I suspect the Barclays are raking in the carbon credits somewhere along the line

    Can we be sure that shrinking glaciers mean warming and expanding glaciers mean cooling? I don’t think so. The amount of precipitation on the higher reaches of the glacier is surely relevant, and may be independent of temperature.
    Otherwise I agree that Louise Gray is an idiot. Couldn’t the Beano fire her and get Booker to write the Environment column?

    There is ample scientific evidence that anthropological global warming is nothing less than a hoax to extract vast amounts of money from Western Civilisations to support the less well off countries. Not. The entire edifice of the IPCC is attached to the UN which is the real threat to all. Cancun may be a laughable jolly, but the real deals are done in the hotel rooms and lobbies. It is those deals which are directly connected to the big issue – world government domination by one all powerful dictatorship – the UN.

    We have no affect over global climate, of this we can be sure. But the entire fraud has been a most suitable platform to get nations globally to make some effort at purporting to fight this unassailable ‘enemy’ for the sake of the peoples of the world, and saving the planet – at any cost. Subservience to the great cause has people prancing and dancing in its honour, and swallowing the story hook line and sinker. At Cancun we are served on a plate, Lord Monckton reports:
