    So?
    What does this tell us about the anecdotal evidence which P.M. English has received about drugs being a problem for some Employers trying to hire new drug free staff?

  • Polity: Cold, calculated and cynical, in reply to Russell Brown,

    Russell - You should consider why Carter called her to order:
    Her "question" began with a long series of statements, all beginning with the phrase "Given that....."
    After about half a dozen of those, Carter brought her to order, asking her to get to the question. I.e. it is not to be a speech followed by a question.

    He regularly pulls up members of the Opposition for this type of "question via a speech" technique. Nothing new here regarding his ruling.

    Hi Dan
    Re: http://www.sciencemediacentre.co.nz/2015/05/15/nz-climate-attitudes-survey-expert-reaction/

    “....why has there has been a shift in opinion (a drop from 75% of New Zealanders thinking climate change an urgent or immediate problem in 2008 to only 53% in 2012)? “

    Because, 30 years of crying wolf continues to sound more and more hollow.

    For example the desecration of the British country side with useless windmills has been a factor in the Tories winning another 5 year term. Now they are turning off the windmill subsidy tap, and kick starting fracking.

    Hi Tussock – an impressive response, thank you.

    You may not be aware that the IPCC have admitted they don’t know what the future climate is going to be – just as well given they could not predict an 18 year flat-line of temperature while CO2 climbed from approx 350ppm to 400ppm.

    They stated the following in a rare feat of honesty:
    “In climate research and modelling, we should recognize that we are dealing with a coupled-nonlinear chaotic system, and therefore that long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.” IPCC Third Assessment Report (2001), Section 14.2.2.2, page 774
    Sort of says it all, doesn’t it.

    22 reasons why the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming alarmists are wrong:

    But, you will ignore the evidence as usual; shoot the messenger, and generally continue to cry wolf.
    Well doomsters, 30 years later and doom is not over the horizon, and the good news is most folk have stopped listening to your message.

    Hi James
    An excellent summary of the reality.

    The truth behind the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming alarmism is being exposed bit by bit.

    E.g. - UN Climate Change Chief Christiana Figueres:

    “This is probably the most difficult task we have ever given ourselves, which is to intentionally transform the economic development model, for the first time in human history“, Ms Figueres stated at a press conference in Brussels.
    “This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the industrial revolution. That will not happen overnight and it will not happen at a single conference on climate change, be it COP 15, 21, 40 – you choose the number. It just does not occur like that. It is a process, because of the depth of the transformation.”

    Hi Bart
    You asked if I could quote “a blog post that dubunks the increased frequency to extreme weather events predicted by global warming model and observed over the last decade during your “flat-line” “.

    Well happened upon this information from the USA’s House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. This comment pertains to President Obama:

    Quote: “Even the U.N. doesn’t agree with him [Obama] on that one: In its 2012 Special Report on Extreme Events, the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says there is “high agreement” among leading experts that long-term trends in weather disasters are not attributable to human-caused climate change. Why do the president and others in his administration keep repeating this untrue claim?”

    See : http://www.ipcc-wg2.gov/SREX/

    I hope this is of some help.

    Hi Bruce

    One of the more high profile Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming alarmists was/is? Dr Phil Jones of the CRU of the University of East Anglia and was concerned about the flat-lining of temperatures. He reported slight cooling in 2005 and in 2009 said in the CRU emails:
    ‘Bottom line: the ‘no upward trend’ has to continue for a total of 15 years before we get worried.’

    Well, I guess Dr Phil is worried; I must say he has been a lot quieter in recent years.
    Maybe he sees the end of the gravy train looming in the not too distant future.

    Hi Bart
    The 18+ year pause in world temperatures continues to be a difficulty for the alarmists. Many of them have tried to explain it, after all – atmospheric CO2 continued to rise from approx 350ppm to 400ppm during this time.

    A recent list of excuses for the pause has more than 60 reasons and counting. It really is a thorn in the side of the “settled science” believers. Maybe CO2 is not the driver of world temperatures as they hoped. Down the gurgler goes another theory.

    At least the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming alarm is a change from the Global Cooling / another Ice-age alarm of the 1970’s.

    Anyway, this link shows a list of reasons/excuses for the 18 year pause.

    Hi Bart
    "But what you and your ilk fail to realise (or just blindly ignore) is they do so BY PRESENTING DATA"

    Well - the problem with data is that it doesn’t always suit your story.
    E.g. It is now widely accepted that the world’s surface temperature has remained static for some 18 years to-date, while CO2 has increased from approximately 350 ppm to 400 ppm.
    That is data which the alarmists have difficulty rationalizing.
