Newsletter #17 6 May 2010

Hello once again, Climate Realists.

Those of us who live in GISBORNE have the opportunity this coming week to demonstrate our opposition to John Key and Pita Sharples as they visit our town.

……please email us at or ph 867 8845 to let us know you will join us, and we will fill you in on the plan…

We would like placards, banners… and lots of people!
This is a great opportunity to show John Key we are serious in our opposition to this ill-advised piece of legislation.

COME AND JOIN US! Email us today!

The announcement this week of an ONLINE PETITION against the ETS is a wonderful thing… details below – please encourage everyone you know to log on and sign.
Thanks to Muriel Newman (NZCPR) for initiating this.

We applaud Rodney Hide and John Boscawen for their excellent work in denouncing the ETS, pointing out with skill and accuracy the many reasons why it should be deferred.
They have travelled far and wide with their message and we thank them for the great sacrifice of time, money, effort and sheer hard work they are putting in for us all. Links to some of their speeches are below.

In a less spectacular way but with equal conviction Neil is addressing the Wairoa Federated Farmers meeting tonight – no prizes for guessing the theme of his speech.

***Please note: the protest march planned for May 15th in Hamilton has been CANCELLED***

We would also like to pay tribute to the excellent work done by the NZ Climate Science Coalition – a group of very hard-working, unsung heroes who do battle behind the scenes as only they can.

All the best,
Neil and Esther


NZCPR online petition

From Muriel Newman:
The failure of National to follow Australia and delay their emissions trading scheme, means that we are launching an urgent petition to the Prime Minister calling on him to suspend the Emissions Trading Scheme. With the economy in an extremely fragile state, the prospect of the world’s most comprehensive and expensive ETS being imposed on July 1, hiking up the price of power and petrol, and causing the cost of food and all other consumer goods and services to rise – all at a time when the government is expected to increase GST – is untenable. Full details can be found below.

$86 million ETS bill risks Government ‘being out of touch’ with farmers

From 1 July 2010, Federated Farmers has estimated the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) will directly cost pastoral agriculture almost $86 million in its first 12 months of operation. Indirect costs could see the cost impact upon pastoral agriculture almost double.

Funny how a government minister can be so concerned that he should instruct NIWA to correct their errors TRANSPARENTLY and yet his leader & colleagues don’t feel uneasy about the direction they are taking us based on fraudulent data.

Surely a delay until this information is published investigated and accepted would be a good idea? But then good ideas are not always worth $$$.

First on the list and not to be missed – I consider this amazing:

This is the sort of thing that should be in NZ schools and Universities – instead of Al Gore’s discredited and unscientific horror movie… Ken Shock

Confirmed! Global warming is ‘settled’ – as a scam

‘Climategate’ author unveils evidence of ‘every deception imaginable’

Al Gore’s insistence that global warming is “settled science” has been used to defend claims humanity is on the edge of destroying the world. Now author Brian Sussman, whose book “Climategate” is being released Thursday – Earth Day – agrees it’s “settled,” as a scam.

Sussman unveils in his book evidence that the move to restrict carbon-dioxide emissions, tax a multitude of energy programs and create a “Big Brother” that would limit household energy use, among other programs, is a move to give government unlimited control over people.

National Public Radio reported in 2007 how Gore took his “climate-change crusade” to Congress and said the science on the issue was “settled.” Then in 2009 the Environmental Protection Agency declared carbon dioxide and other emissions are endangering the future of the world.

Be the first to see the full documentation of how your life could be changed by climate-related laws, taxes and regulations, in “Climategate”

Sussman’s book, the newest title by WND Books, has been charting for several weeks already among Amazon’s top 10 preordered titles. It warns that believing global warming is “settled science” is a danger itself.
