In turn= a small part of what they get from, and what goes past in, the grauniad

And it’s all required reading/viewing inside the UK’s universities and corridors of power

caught a bit on ITV News last night, amongst other things Climate Change is increasing heavy snowfalls in Britain. I guess they had to included snow as it is not yet a thing of the past

Spring in Vancouver BC is at least one month late, and holding. Natural global cooling started in Feb2020, just as we published in 2002 and 2013 – more cold, more storms, more invasions by the polar vortex, more injuries and deaths – Cold Weather Kills!

I recently published my book, a collections of emails sent to governments and media over the past three years addressing the Covid and Climate madness.

Draft 1 of my book – Published 30Mar2023 (

In American, 500,000 were needlessly killed in 2020 due to incompetent late treatment, Remdesivir, and ventilators, and another 1.1 million were killed in 2021 and 2022 by the toxic Covid-19 vaxxes, a total of 1.6 million innocents needlessly killed. That is 50% more than the 1.1 million killed in all American wars back to 1776. Yes, it’s real.

More BS from you. Your numbers re covid make no sense on any level. If they had any semblance of truth we would all know many people who have died. I know of no one. Fact… the covid vaccinations are less dangerous than paracetamol.

6,023 vaccine deaths logged by US doctors on the national VAERS register.

Reviewed by Fauci’s FDA and CDC staff, who have only admitted 3 cases so far.

FDA CDC are of course the same agencies who introduced the MRNA jabs without complete clinical trials.

“They would say that, wouldn’t they?”

A general observation about Simon’s typical woke comment:
In both the Covid and the Climate scams, the totalitarian scoundrels who concocted these frauds and the imbeciles who believe them rarely address the facts that contradict them – their tactic is to scoff, to shout down, and to vilify – it has been so
for decades in the Climate scam and for three years in the Covid-19 scam. This is a standard Lenin/Goebbels/Alinsky propaganda tactic that works to convince really stupid people, aka the gullible majority, but it has no place in honest scientific debate. The shout-down a big part of the Covid and Climate scams.
We can safely write off anyone who still believes in these two huge scams as a gullible fool – unfortunately that includes most politicians on both sides of the floor.

Based on Alberta total deaths and the increase post-vaxx, I calculated 12.9 million Covid-19-vaxx-caused-deaths worldwide to end 2022, increasing to more than 19 million by end2023. China is a wild card – not included.
That death count was independently verified by Rancourt et al (Feb2023) based on Israeli and Australian total death data, at 13.25 million to 24Jan2023 – the same as my total.
I published my estimates before I read the Rancourt paper.

Does anyone really think that our uber-corrupt governments are going to admit that they are the greatest killers of our citizens in history?

“A tropical cyclone that shut down most of New Zealand last month”? What? The area around Napier city (pop. 65,000) was the worst affected, mainly because of flooded rivers, and some parts were without power for up to 6 days, but most of the rest of the country (5 million) were just fine, thanks.

Two cyclones hit northern New Zealand ,Cyclone Hale caused damage around Auckland and Coromandel in February then Cyclone Gabriele caused serious flooding in the North and in the Hawks Bay region .
Not one news outlet has mentioned the Tongan volcanic eruption that happened a year before in January 2022..
This eruption threw 183 million tonnes of sea water into the atmosphere and we heard the explosions from New Zealand .
I was told during 2022 that the usual cyclone activity that New Zealand experiences in our late summer could carry massive amounts of water .
This is what happened ,the rainfall in Napier and Hastings has been seen many times in the past .
In the back country up against the ranges the cyclone dropped this massive load of water .
The flooding was made much worse because of forestry slash .That is reject logs and all the branches and tops of the pine trees were swept down the rivers and piled up against bridge piles lifting the flood level and then destroying the bridges .
Serious floods happened in the Hawks Bay in the 1930s so stop banks were built which have protected the low lying land.
The stop banks were breached because of the forestry slash up against the bridges lifted the flood level.
An engineer on TV tried to say that stop banks do not work but properly constructed stop banks set well back from rivers work very well .
We saw a similar cyclone Bolla devastate the Gisborne region 35 years ago .
I feel for the people affected who have lost their homes and orchards .

Graham. Have you no level of integrity? Seriously man. Just because you think it does not make it real. I’ve asked you for any evidence and all you say is “I think” it is true. Your volcano nonsense is just that…. nonsense.
I feel for the people affected who have lost their homes and orchards .”
Well if you genuinely do, then stop making stuff up about what was a unique and devastating event for the country.

I am not making stuff up Simon.
This topic is climate fact check and one topic states
“Climate change Goosed New Zealand.”
What I have written are facts that you Simon are denying .
Fact 1 The Tongan eruption threw 183 million tonnes of sea water into the
atmosphere last year.
Fact 2 More water vapour in the tropical atmosphere will cause stronger
cyclones ,and heavier rain fall ,at least that is what the scientists are telling us.
Fact 3 Forestry slash contributed to the flood damage which has nothing to do
climate change.The slash caused the flood to breach the stop banks
and wrecked many bridges.
Fact 4 A very bad flood hit Hawks Bay in 1938 which was well before this climate doomsday nonsense and well before fossil fuels could ever have had any effect on temperature .Saying that the 1930s were as warm as present .
The stop banks were built after that flood and would have protected the plain very well until the forestry slash blocked the river .
Fact 5 The recorded rain fall in Napier and Hastings was high but not exceptional.
The rainfall up in the ranges was high caused by the circular motion of the cyclone pushing the saturated up against ranges .dropping a massive amount of rain as the cyclone moved south .
Fact 6 The rain fall in the 1938 flood was higher than the 2023 flood .
The rainfall in the 1938 flood was higher in both Napier and Hastings and the amount of raid recorded at Tutira over 3 days was 610 mm in the1930 flood .
Far higher than any records from 2023 .

One reputable reference is all I need that agrees that your nonsense re the volcano is true.
And please tell me you are not the Graham Fox who ran for the local council in Otaki recently?

Just google ” 2022 Tongan volcanic eruption ” and you might learn something Simon. I am not a Fox.

No I want a link please that says the eruption contributed to the record rainfall. I know it erupted and threw water in the air, but that does not mean it fell on NZ. So a link please otherwise this is just your theory.
And this article doesn’t agree with your theory…,vapour%20into%20the%20Earth's%20stratosphere.

When you have read this I will expect an apology .

OK I googled your page and no where does it say that rainfall will be higher because of that eruption. What it did say was that vapour will push global temperatures higher than expected in the coming years.
Graham me old buddy…. that is called an own goal….

OK this all makes sense now. Like so many here, when asked to justify what you write you can’t, then sadly you resort to childish abuse. All very sad, doubly so given you are a Kiwi.

Rich people like Jamie Diamond know how to stay wealthy. They “support” stupid causes so the plebes don’t turn on them. Bill Gates comes to mind….a lot.

The problem is western governments are filled people that support these stupid causes. They really believe CO2 is dangerous. Even if we could replace top leadership in western countries the inner workings of government would not change.

Well, since there is no compelling state interest (NO data, none, that supports the conjecture that human CO2 causes meaningful shifts in the climate zones of the earth, further there is strong data evidence that CO2 rise lags surface temperature rise by a quarter cycle), that would violate the 5th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America.

Weatherbell’s 2023 Hurricane season forecast is out.

Joe points out an interesting fact:

There have been no landfalling hurricanes on the shores of New England or Long Island for 32 years! From 1938 to 1991 they had a landfall somewhere along those coasts every 6.7 years.

To my knowledge nobody else even tries to do a seasonal forecast that indicates the places where hurricanes are more or less likely to make landfall. Though Weatherbells over all count was way over the actual last year, just like virtually all those from other sources were, their impact forecast was pretty darn accurate.

True Believers don’t need any stinking facts! With around U$D 1 Billion spent per day, globally, on CAGW/Climate Change/Climate Weirding/Global Warming, etc, it is easy to understand the desire of corrupt pseudo environmentalists to scoop up, sorry, justify the detour, of some of that cash. Follow the money.

These people need to read “The Rational Climate e-Book” by Patrice Poyet. It is continually being updated. It is very well referenced. The download is free Poyet’s e-book dispels a lot of misconceptions regarding climate change.
