"Controlling climate change has as much scientific validity as phlogiston." - agreed At least Boris is willing to consider what scientists who do not support the Ken Lay hoax such as Piers Corbyn have to say. “WeatherAction is involved in the Global Warming /Climate Change debate where we point out that the world is now cooling not warming and there is no observational evidence in the thousands and millions of years of data that changes in CO2 have any effect on weather or climate. There are no scientists in the world who can produce such observational data. There is only effect the other way, namely that ocean temperatures control average CO2 levels. Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London has expressed interest in what we say: see article “ http://www.weatheraction.com/

Medvedev: Violating International Law When Addressing Issues of Syria and Iran Will Lead to Chaos – Arab news agency "The very strong media campaign launched against Syria is a good example of public opinion manipulation for achieving certain foreign political missions," he added, stressing that this campaign is in no way related to the missions of stopping the violence and supporting the immediate launch of a Syrian dialogue process, "while we are all seeking this very particular issue". The Russian President said the reason behind all what is happening with regard to Syria and Iran is "the twisted logic and psychology of war", expressing Russia's concern over this "harmful logic". http://www.sana.sy/eng/22/2012/03/23/407882.htm

TEHRAN – Israeli officials agree with the U.S. assessment that Iran has not yet decided on the actual construction of a nuclear bomb, according to senior Israeli government and defense figures, AP reported on March 18. Several senior Israeli officials who spoke in recent days to the Associated Press said that Israel has come around to the U.S. view that no final decision to build a bomb has been made by Iran.

I think the Syrian insurgents have received a crushing defeat and if civil wars break out in Iraq and Libya the result of the chaos would not favour Obama’s withdraw from Iraq and Afghanistan. In simple terms the pudding has been overcooked. The USA has also mega infrastructure problems with even the Chinese helping them out.

The six-person IAEA team is due to arrive in Tehran in tomorrow. Israel has do doubt, offered to meet all expenses of this affair if nothing is untoward! I think that there is a huge translation problem between the Persian culture and the USA.

There is of course a mega difference between the two situations. "According to Amir Cyrus Razzaghi, "The (Iranian) government goes to extra lengths to differentiate between the government of Israel, with whom they have fundamental issues, and the Jewish people, especially Iranian Jews… There is a genuine interest to keep the Jewish community in Iran to demonstrate to the world that the government is anti-Israel and not anti-Jewish. Iran's official government-controlled media published the Protocols of the Elders of Zion in 1994 and 1999. Jewish children still attend Jewish schools where Hebrew and religious studies are taught, but Jewish principals have been replaced by Muslim ones, the curricula are government-supervised, and the Jewish Sabbath is no longer recognized.[142] There are 18 synagogues in Tehran, Iranian capital." "According Jewish journalist Roger Cohen: “Perhaps I have a bias toward facts over words, but I say the reality of Iranian civility toward Jews tells us more about Iran -- its sophistication and culture -- than all the inflammatory rhetoric. That may be because I'm a Jew and have seldom been treated with such consistent warmth as in Iran”" Wikipedia

"pretty sclerotict" Stand Alone Complex? Very similar to Israel then? Tehran has 11 functioning synagogues, many of them with Hebrew schools. Hardly enemies of the Jews. Israel is the problem state.

Thursday 19th January "Ali Akbar Salehi, Iran's foreign minister to visit Turkey, said during a joint news conference with his Turkish counterpart that his country is ready to resume nuclear talks. Mr. Salehi said that his personal recommendation is that such talks to be hosted by Turkey." Today Monday 23rd January. William Hague wishes to pressure Iran into meaningful negotiations! Hand not somebody better pick up a phone?

You are correct, I was unaware of that. Nevertheless I assume the Foreign Office document of November 2nd,1917; The Balfour agreement has not been rewritten. Readers may like to indicate a better source of information.

"Their flexibility and cost-effectiveness make mines attractive to the less powerful belligerent in asymmetric warfare. The cost of producing and laying a mine is usually anywhere from 0.5% to 10% of the cost of removing it, and it can take up to 200 times as long to clear a minefield as to lay it. Parts of some World War II naval minefields still exist because they are too extensive and expensive to clear." Wikipedia

The countries that are against Israel are mainly the Islamic countries such as Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, and Egypt. Ireland and South Africa have showed support towards Palestine. The Balfour agreement included the words “It being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country." Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (who has only one year left in office) keeps repeating “what have Palestinians done to deserve this?” Clearly that agreement has been breached. It is up to this country to deal with Israel but we do not have the politicians who can match the events. There needs to be a council that can provide justice for the Palestinians and at the same time obtain good will towards the Israelis. Warring with the surrounding nations is never going to solve the problem for Israel. May I recommend the Institute for Historical Review http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v06/v06p389_John.html

Should we not be negotiating? Once that Strait is mined there will not be much we can do about it. A pity we do not have an Iranian Ambassador to consult with.

Andrew, Please view the graph here; “Variations of Earth temperature and the concentration of CO2 in its atmosphere over the last 420,000 years “ http://www.gao.spb.ru/english/astrometr/index1_eng.html The Earth warms due to an increase of IR from the sun, after a delay the CO2 rises, this CO2 helps to keep the Earth cool (not stated here but may be inferred by the way the temperature plummets after the CO2 reaches a maximum). The first sign of a mini ice age is a fall in the CO2 level caused by a cooling Sun. “The increase in greenhouse gases concentration is not the reason of global warming, but on the contrary, the result of the rise of temperature caused by prolonged increase in the TSI. The rise of atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide takes place with a delay (from the moment of global warming).” “Thus, the observed global warming on the Earth is not caused by human-induced greenhouse gases emission, but mostly by unusually high intensity of the solar radiation during the whole passed century. The coming decrease of global temperature will take place even if the anthropogenic CO2 emission will reach record high levels in the future.” “It should be noticed that not only carbon dioxide does not help global warming, but it is also very useful as it stimulates the development of life on the Earth being a critically essential "food" for the plants ― the major cleaners of the nature. Higher concentrations of carbon dioxide accelerates the growth of forests and plants. The evidence of this fact is the so-called "green revolution" ― a sharp and global increase in the productivity of agriculture all over the world in XX century. The direct proportionality of agricultural productivity and the concentration of CO2 is confirmed by a number of experiments. In case the supply of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere ceased, the plants would exhaust its reserve in approximately 10 years. After this, every living thing on the Earth may cease to exist. CO2 is not toxic! CO2does not react with any substance within a human body and it is a harmless gas unlike CO. CO2 is very important for life.”

No Having spent some time managing a Pilot Plant facility in the Chemical Industry I have the ability to knock up apparatus to test this theory (that some how a small rise on CO2 could effect the climate) for myself. It does not work. Shine IR through a tube of air measure the IR. Repeat with water vapour measure the drop in IR. Add CO2 (not a few ppm but 50% measure the drop in IR). Increase in CO2 very obviously cools the Earth. The atmosphere is very efficient at loosing heat to space. Talk the latter over with a qualified Physicist and the result is that I know the whole AGW theory is total bull deification.

"The RSPB is a highly reputable scientific organisation and accepts the case for AGW." That is a bit rich. News from the East Bay Regional Park District in California:- ‘It would take 167 pairs of local nesting golden eagles to produce enough young to compensate for their mortality rate related to wind energy production,’ field biologist Doug Bell, manager of East Bay Regional Park District's wildlife programme, told the Los Angeles Times. ‘We only have 60 pairs,’ he added. It seems to be that many organisations receiving Parliamentary Grants support the case for AGW even the Royal Society has corrupted its honour to support this nonsensical science. One massive problem for the theory is that CO2 cools the atmosphere.

Do Moths around a Light bulb make it shine brighter? These recent papers destroy the idea of a Greenhouse Effect: "How Simple Physics Demolishes the "Greenhouse Effect"” June 2010 by Timothy Casey Abstract: “Arrhenius' backradiation mechanism is identified as a key aspect of the "Greenhouse Effect" hypothesis.... in its diversity of emphasis, shows little change since its original proposition by Svante Arrhenius in 1896, and subsequent refutation by Robert Wood in 1909” http://greenhouse.geologist-1011.net/ “Observations on “Backradiation” during Nighttime and Daytime” Sept 2011 by Nasif S. Nahle Abstract: “Through a series of real time measurements of thermal radiation from the atmosphere and surface materials during night-time and daytime, I demonstrate that warming backradiation emitted from Earth’s atmosphere back toward the earth’s surface and the idea that a cooler system can warm a warmer system are unphysical concepts” http://principia-scientific.org/publications/New_Concise_Experiment_on_Backradiation.pdf

Andrew, You may not have grasped the notion that CO2 and H2O work in both ways. They have a sun shade effect during the day and and releases heat in all directions both night and day. "Greenhouse Effect Atmospheric scientists first used the term 'greenhouse effect' in the early 1800s. At that time, it was used to describe the naturally occurring functions of trace gases in the atmosphere and did not have any negative connotations. It was not until the mid-1950s that the term greenhouse effect was coupled with concern over climate change. And in recent decades, we often hear about the greenhouse effect in somewhat negative terms. The negative concerns are related to the possible impacts of an enhanced greenhouse effect. This is covered in more detail in the Global Climate Change section of this Web site. It is important to remember that without the greenhouse effect, life on earth as we know it would not be possible." http://www.ucar.edu/learn/1_3_1.htm

A recent paper regarding Backradiation by Professor Nasif S. Nahle Observations on “Backradiation” during Nighttime and Daytime By Nasif S. Nahle Sept 2011 http://principia-scientific.org/publications/New_Concise_Experiment_on_Backradiation.pdf "In conclusion, backradiation from a cooler atmosphere warming up a warmer surface is a myth that is 100% discredited by correct unbiased experimentation." This view is also shared with Khabibullo Abdussamatov who contends that the natural greenhouse effect does not exist, stating "Ascribing 'greenhouse' effect properties to the Earth's atmosphere is not scientifically substantiated.
