Crack Dealers Against Crack- protest the Business and Climate Change Conference

in

Monday 18 August - 4pm - Outside the Skycity Convention Centre 88 Federal Street Auckland

Protest the Lack of real action on climate change and demand real and adequate change.

This Monday the Climate Change and Business Conference will be held at the Skytower Convention Centre. Many business leaders from industries and companies that are the worst climate change offenders will be giving keynote speeches at the conference, including Don Elder, CEO of Solid Energy. Solid Energy is planning on destroying plenty of native bush, and fragile wetlands to mine coal at Happy Valley in the South Island. [Save Happy Valley Coalition]

New Zealand is known for its clean and green image, but the reality reveals something else. Emissions trading schemes are the new corporate 'solution' to rising emissions and unsustainable growth dependent on fossil fuels. Simply re-branding industries like the coal and oil industries and allowing 'offset options' for airfares does not change the reality of a warming world and changing climate.

Demand change, and call for real action and polluter pays, not public subsides and corporate wellfare for the largest polluters, like Fonterra, Comalco and NZ Steel.

Climate change is a hoax.

Fight real pollution, not the laws of nature or the fundamental building block of life on this planet, aka carbon.

Re: Crack Dealers Against Crack- protest the Business and Climat

really? You are a genius

Re: Crack Dealers Against Crack- protest the Business and Climat

Its the amount of carbon in the atmosphere and other greenhouse gases like methane that are the problem, not 'carbon' as a gas on its own.

Climate change is a hoax like the earth is flat...!

Re: Crack Dealers Against Crack- protest the Business and Climat

Climate change is the new industry.

educate yourself

The earth is so flat - ask anyone in canterbury. Donna the round earth sceptic :)

Re: Crack Dealers Against Crack- protest the Business and Climat

greenparty website lists climate change & peak oil as their 2 highest priorities.

both are scams

lefties really are letting themselves be fooled, being played like fiddles.

research the bolshevik revolution, who was behind it & what the real drive was..... 20 million people died. this is no different. biofuels are going to cause massive food shortages.

don't be fooled. research research research

Al Gore is a current member of the Club of Rome.

Read about the CoR here:

"So, long before Global Warming became a well known issue Al Gore and his Club of Rome colleagues stated that they would use the threat of global warming to unite humanity and "set the scene for mankind's encounter with the planet." In the same way that shamans and sooth-sayers in medieval times used their advance knowledge of when eclipses would occur to control and terrify their followers, they would use a natural phenomenon as their 'enemy' to achieve their objectives. But then they state that although Global Warming would be presented as the initial enemy, the real enemy of humanity would be portrayed as man himself. I am already noticing how frequently the terms climate change and overpopulation are being uttered in the same breath."

"climate change is a hoax"

Really... so you're trying to claim that there have never been any ice ages?

The climate has changed in the past, due to nature reasons and has changed over the last few decades due to human activities.

You are a Muppet. Sad, very sad.

Re: Crack Dealers Against Crack- protest the Business and Climat

Climate change is a hoax glub glub glub ...(drowns).

Re: Crack Dealers Against Crack- protest the Business and Climat

human induced climate change is a hoax

Re: Crack Dealers Against Crack- protest the Business and Climat

Dan Roberts, you are lame.

Re: Crack Dealers Against Crack- protest the Business and Climat

Believing Al Gore propaganda is lame

Thinking that all those who question the 'green agenda' are somehow sponsored by the oil industry is lame

A mathematical proof that there is no “climate crisis” has been published in debate on global warming in Physics and Society, a scientific publication of the 46,000-strong American Physical Society.

Christopher Monckton, who once advised Margaret Thatcher, demonstrates via 30 equations that computer models used by the UN’s climate panel (IPCC) were pre-programmed with overstated values for the three variables whose product is “climate sensitivity” (temperature increase in response to greenhouse-gas increase), resulting in a 500-2000% overstatement of CO2’s effect on temperature in the IPCC’s latest climate assessment report, published in 2007.

The article, entitled Climate Sensitivity Reconsidered demonstrates that later this century a doubling of the concentration of CO2 compared with pre-industrial levels will increase global mean surface temperature not by the 6 °F predicted by the IPCC but, harmlessly, by little more than 1 °F. Lord Monckton concludes –

“… Perhaps real-world climate sensitivity is very much below the IPCC’s estimates. Perhaps, therefore, there is no ‘climate crisis’ at all. … The correct policy approach to a non-problem is to have the courage to do nothing.”

Larry Gould, Professor of Physics at the University of Hartford and Chair (2004) of the New England Section of the American Physical Society (APS), has been studying climate-change science for four years. He said:

“I was impressed by an hour-long academic lecture which criticized claims about ‘global warming’ and explained the implications of the physics of radiative transfer for climate change. I was pleased that the audience responded to the informative presentation with a prolonged, standing ovation. That is what happened when, at the invitation of the President of our University, Christopher Monckton lectured here in Hartford this spring. I am delighted that Physics and Society, an APS journal, has published his detailed paper refining and reporting his important and revealing results.

“To me the value of this paper lies in its dispassionate but ruthlessly clear exposition – or, rather, exposé – of the IPCC’s method of evaluating climate sensitivity. The detailed arguments in this paper, and, indeed, in a large number of other scientific papers, point up extensive errors, including numerous projection errors of climate models, as well as misleading statements by the IPCC. Consequently, there are no rational grounds for believing either the IPCC or any other claims of dangerous anthropogenic ‘global warming’.”

Lord Monckton’s paper reveals that –

► The IPCC’s 2007 climate summary overstated CO2’s impact on temperature by 500-2000%;
► CO2 enrichment will add little more than 1 °F (0.6 °C) to global mean surface temperature by 2100;
► Not one of the three key variables whose product is climate sensitivity can be measured directly;
► The IPCC’s values for these key variables are taken from only four published papers, not 2,500;
► The IPCC’s values for each of the three variables, and hence for climate sensitivity, are overstated;
► “Global warming” halted ten years ago, and surface temperature has been falling for seven years;
► Not one of the computer models relied upon by the IPCC predicted so long and rapid a cooling;
► The IPCC inserted a table into the scientists’ draft, overstating the effect of ice-melt by 1000%;
► It was proved 50 years ago that predicting climate more than two weeks ahead is impossible;
► Mars, Jupiter, Neptune’s largest moon, and Pluto warmed at the same time as Earth warmed;
► In the past 70 years the Sun was more active than at almost any other time in the past 11,400 years.

lord crank says - buy more SUVs - climate change is a .... uhm conspiracy

Re: Crack Dealers Against Crack- protest the Business and Climat

Where's the global warming..... we've already spent billions & we'll spend billions more which will only have the effect of reducing our output potential.

Climate change is a joke. So are the people who think we can do something about it. The green revolution is a communist scam.
