Unprecedented? Not Really Dave.


Foreign Secretary William Hague said today a 6 per cent rise in the EU budget for 2011 'will be blocked' after David Cameron won crucial backing in his fight to limit a spending increase.
But Tory grandees immediately accused the Prime Minister of a ‘Vichy-style’ surrender for agreeing any rise at all.
Mr Cameron faces a backlash from the Tory right after building a coalition of 11 countries in favour of a hike of no more than 2.9 per cent - despite earlier claiming he would push for the budget to be ‘cut or frozen’.
Lord Tebbit, the Eurosceptic former chairman of the party, told him that agreeing to such a rise - equivalent to an extra £430million from the UK - would be comparable to the humiliation of the French regime’s 1940 cave-in to the Nazis.

Tax Your Breath Away.






German born chemist, Dr Klaus L. E. Kaiser has published evidence that proves the Royal Society (RS), London, has been caught out making schoolboy errors in mathematical calculations over the duration of carbon dioxide (CO2) in Earth's atmosphere. Backed up by a review by a leading Swedish mathematics professor the revelation is a serious embarrassment to the credibility of the once revered British science institute and a major setback for its claims about climate change.


Current understanding indicates that even if there was a complete cessation of emissions of CO2 today from human activity, it would take several millennia for CO2 concentrations to return to preindustrial concentrations


The German chemist expertly dismantles the claims by the Royal Society that it would take "millennia" for atmospheric CO2 to return to preindustrial levels. Such a claim, he says, "cannot be true."


Taking the Royal Society to task Kaiser refers to several peer-reviewed papers reporting the half-life of CO2 in the atmosphere to be "between 5 and 10 years." The chemist calculates that with a half-life of 5 years means that more than 98% of a substance will disappear in a time span of 30 years.


The German then poses the question that if CO2 were to stay in the atmosphere for millennia, why has its level in the atmosphere not doubled in the last 15 years, or gone up tenfold-plus over the last 100 hundred years?



Dr Kaiser has a book:-

CONVENIENT MYTHS The green revolution - perceptions, politics, and facts.
