Save Britains Forests

source: 38degrees

Our Save our Forests petition is growing fast. So many people are telling their friends about this campaign that almost 60,000 of us have joined the campaign so far.

We’re proving that the public doesn’t want our forests sold off. If enough of us get involved we can make the government back down.

We need to prove we are not just a flash in the pan. Let’s aim to get past 75,000 signatures this week. That will show the government that the campaign is going to keep growing until they change their plans.

This campaign has grown so fast because tens of thousands of us have forwarded emails just like this to friends and colleagues asking them to save our forests. If we don't all act now there's a real risk we'll lose our forests forever. Please can you help protect forests for wildlife and future generations by asking more people to sign the petition?

Climate Change Hysteria Falters. Water Is The New Target

by: Dr Tim Ball

Self-proclaimed environmentalists and people who use the environment as a vehicle for political control, often the same people, have not quite destroyed environmentalism.

They are running out of exotic scares as coral bleaching, ocean acidification and a multitude of other claims prove unwarranted.

A sign of desperation is the shift to much larger targets, but they pose the problem that people know a little more and basic questions raise immediate doubts.

Water is the latest target. More and more stories about running out of water appear. Most are linked to the false claim by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that droughts will increase in severity with global warming. It’s illogical because higher temperatures mean increased evaporation and more moisture in the air to create precipitation, but that doesn’t stop them. It’s part of the ongoing standard chain that links too many people with too many demands on limited resources causing environment collapse. The real goal is total political control, the shut down of industry and ultimately elimination of people.

Water Is Not A Problem
There is no shortage. As with climate and all the other issues used to panic people, there is lack of information and understanding. I know from chairing public hearings on water how it raises passions. Wars have been fought and future conflicts are possible because of the unequal distribution, but none of this is necessary.

Winter to be Mild Predicts MET Office

by: Nathan Reo

It's a prediction that means this may be time to dig out the snow chains and thermal underwear.

The Met Office, using data generated by a £33million supercomputer, claims Britain can stop worrying about a big freeze this year because we could be in for a milder winter than in past years.

But this is the same equipment used to produce recent official seasonal forecasts – before those bulletins were axed in March after a string of much-criticised blunders.

These calamities included predicting a “BBQ summer” before the 2009 washout and then claiming there was only a one in seven chance of a chilly winter last year before the coldest few months for 31 years. And the new figures, which show a 60 per cent to 80 per cent chance of warmer-than-average temperatures this winter, were ridiculed last night by independent forecasters. The latest data comes in the form of a December to February temperature map on the Met Office’s website.
