Oops, looks like ‘Ocean CleanUp’ doesn’t work

by ExPFC 
 
TOC_System001_Mission_Deployed-1.jpg?w=2 Ocean CleanUp, sea plastic removal system

You may recall reading about the Ocean CleanUp in the past but in case it’s new to you, Ocean CleanUp is a system for passively trapping the plastic waste that is in the so called Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

It is a pretty ingenious system involving a floating U-shaped boom, hundreds of metres long which is designed to be abandoned in the ocean while it gets blown about by the wind and currents, casually trapping thousands of tonnes of plastic ready for later removal by a ship for recycling.

The plan, which has so far cost over $20 million, was to ramp up the program with the aim to soon have around sixty of these booms floating about in the ocean, leading to 50% of the plastic being removed every five years!

Prior to deployment there was nearly 300 tests, mostly computer modelled but also small-scale practical tests. Everything was going peachy and the first device, nicknamed ‘Wilson’, was taken out into the middle of the patch and let loose. You can check the ambitious project here.

Unfortunately, it seems that the winds and waves way out in the middle of the ocean have never heard of computer modelling and refused to play ball. It seems that although the device does at times capture plastic, it often just flows straight back out again. The unit has been towed to Hawaii for repairs and re-evaluation.

Now I think this system is pretty cool, and with a lot of further testing, time and money, they may well come up with a solution, I wish them well.

What bothers me somewhat though is the blatant falsities that are bandied about in their promotional material. Take this graph for instance, apparently with their system in place, they show that by 2025, they could have the plastic levels in the GPGP back to pre 2000 levels!

What utter bollocks! They could have thousands of these things out there and they will still be a literal drop in the ocean. By their own admission, the GPGP covers over 1.6 million square kilometres, that’s apparently three times the size of France. Each one of these booms has an open end of just 100 metres or so, that’s only 0.1 sq kms of area trawled for each kilometer drifted. In any case, there simply will never be enough of them to make any difference whatsoever.

But at least they have managed to take some plastic out of the water on their ill-fated trial.

2000kgs of plastic! That’s not even one half filled, small rubbish truck and they admit that some of it was ghost nets. Here is the picture of one of those ghost nets being loaded onto the ship. I wonder how much this one net weighs?

Bearing in mind that the average concentration of plastic in the GPGP is a miserly 20 odd kilograms per square kilometer, this one net being removed might’ve just cleaned up hundreds of square kilometres of ocean.

But good on them, they have figured out a way to make a living taking grants from other people and, at the end of the day, there seems to be plenty of spare cash around the world for these sorts of feel-good projects.

In fact I’d like to do my bit as well. With that in mind I would like to solve almost the entire, ‘oceans full of plastic’ problem. It has become apparent that there will not need to be anywhere near sixty of these units required. I reckon about ten should do it. All they have to do is place one each at the arrowed locations shown on the map below.

What’s a little lie between friends?

ClimateChangeHumans-GRid.jpg?w=707&ssl=1 The obligatory picture of backlit harmless water vapour to illustrate a Climate Change story

It is summer, it has been wonderfully warm and dry – great Kiwi beach weather but we are not simply allowed to enjoy it, Oh no! We need to be told about climate change and extreme weather and the warmest January eva! Quote.

The idea that climate change is producing heat records across the Earth is among the most egregious manipulations of data in the absurd global warming debate.

Americans [and new Zelanders] receive a daily barrage from the fake news media and climate “experts” reporting that each and every day, week, month or year is the hottest on record due to global warming. On Feb. 7, several major newspapers carried stories of the declaration by NASA and NOAA that the past five years have been the warmest on record.

Sadly, these supposed experts use mathematical equations that do not jibe with reality over the past 140 years.

The same climate experts warn that record heat is just the tip of the iceberg. We are constantly told that global warming is the root cause behind any and all weather events that are extreme, destructive, unusual or uncomfortable.

Many of these fear mongers also say we should stop burning fossil fuels that are causing this mayhem.

Is the Earth truly experiencing the hottest weather on record?

Absolutely not.

Actual weather records over the past 100 years show no correlation between rising carbon dioxide levels and local temperatures.

However, climate change alarmists always find somewhere on Earth where temperatures are higher than ever. The focus is always on isolated temperatures that have reached all-time highs while the same reports ignore all-time record lows. These zealots would like you to believe that due to fossil fuel emissions, summers are now longer and hotter while winters are shorter and milder.

Yet, the actual temperature records tell a very different story. Did the Earth experience its highest temperature ever this year? The answer is no.

The highest temperature ever reported was 136 degrees Fahrenheit in Libya in 1922. The record high temperature for the United States was 134 degrees Fahrenheit in Death Valley, California, in 1913. Fossil fuel emissions in 1913 and 1922 were negligible compared to today.

The coldest temperature ever reported was 129 degrees below zero Fahrenheit in Vostok, Antarctica, in 1983, when Carbon dioxide emissions were five times higher than in 1913. The coldest temperature in the lower 48 states of minus 64 degrees Fahrenheit was recorded in 1996 in Embarass, Minnesota. Did the media and climate scientists warn that this low temperature indicated that we are headed for another Ice Age?

The maximum reported difference between high and low temperatures at a single location is 188 degrees Fahrenheit (from minus 90F to plus 98F) in Verhoyansk, Siberia. In fact, record changes of highs and lows have occurred in 22 U.S. cities on a single day. For example, in 1989 the temperature in Alamosa, Colorado, varied between a low of 35F and a high of 91F for a temperature swing of 56 degrees F.

We hope these examples, right out of the weather record books, compiled by C.C. Burt in his book “Extreme Weather Changes,” will help you to understand the scams alarmists are trying to pull. These examples all illustrate that cherry picking record high temperatures in isolated locations tells absolutely nothing about the Earth’s climate.

The strongest heat wave ever recorded occurred in July 1936, generating high temperatures in half of America’s states. In 1935, fossil fuel emissions were 96 percent lower than today. America’s coldest year occurred in 1899, when temperatures dropped below 0 F in all 48 states. […]

From 1970 until 1998 there was a warming period that raised temperatures by about 0.7 F that helped spawn the global warming alarmist movement. However, since 1998, little warming has occurred while carbon dioxide emissions continue to increase. This is totally consistent with variations in the amount of heat the Earth receives from the Sun.

These facts are completely supported by 4,000 ocean floats which measure ocean temperatures at a variety of depths. This data at argo.ucsd.edu measures the oceans where climate-induced temperatures occur.

Isn’t it time to start ignoring the calamitous annual claims that this is the hottest year on record? It just ain’t so. End

Breaking news

AP1.jpg?w=612&ssl=1

I must confess that I have been a bit wary of predictions of this sort, but this breaking news from the UN must be taken seriously by all. We cannot afford to have a head-in-the-sand attitude any longer. Quote.

A senior U.N. environmental official says entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed.

Coastal flooding and crop failures would create an exodus of ″eco- refugees,′ ′ threatening political chaos, said Noel Brown, director of the New York office of the U.N. Environment Program, or UNEP.

He said governments have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.

As the warming melts polar icecaps, ocean levels will rise by up to three feet, enough to cover the Maldives and other flat island nations, Brown told The Associated Press in an interview on Wednesday.

Coastal regions will be inundated; one-sixth of Bangladesh could be flooded, displacing a fourth of its 90 million people. A fifth of Egypt’s arable land in the Nile Delta would be flooded, cutting off its food supply, according to a joint UNEP and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency study. […]

Shifting climate patterns would bring back 1930s Dust Bowl conditions to Canadian and U.S. wheatlands, while the Soviet Union could reap bumper crops if it adapts its agriculture in time, according to a study by UNEP and the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis.

Excess carbon dioxide is pouring into the atmosphere because of humanity’s use of fossil fuels and burning of rain forests, the study says. The atmosphere is retaining more heat than it radiates, much like a greenhouse.

The most conservative scientific estimate that the Earth’s temperature will rise 1 to 7 degrees in the next 30 years, said Brown.

The difference may seem slight, he said, but the planet is only 9 degrees warmer now than during the 8,000-year Ice Age that ended 10,000 years ago.

Brown said if the warming trend continues, ″the question is will we be able to reverse the process in time? We say that within the next 10 years, given the present loads that the atmosphere has to bear, we have an opportunity to start the stabilizing process.″

He said even the most conservative scientists ″already tell us there’s nothing we can do now to stop a … change″ of about 3 degrees.

″Anything beyond that, and we have to start thinking about the significant rise of the sea levels … we can expect more ferocious storms, hurricanes, wind shear, dust erosion.″

He said there is time to act, but there is no time to waste.[…]

Nations will be asked to reduce the use of fossil fuels, cut the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases such as methane and fluorocarbons, and preserve the rain forests. […] End quote.

APNews


Oh … wait …

AP2.jpg?w=529&ssl=1

… it was broken news 30 years ago, before the temperature rose 7 degrees before the seas rose three feet and before the Maldives disappeared under the ocean.

So sorry, my mistake.

Stuff are currently promoting the climate scam , three times now I have posted a piece asking for scientific PROOF climate change is a new phenomena , actual proof not opinion ,  my posts haven't bee published . The problem the scammers , lefty politicians and gravy train scientists have is there is no actual PROOF just opinions . Scientists can measure change against historical records , when things don't add up the past must be wrong or they are simply measuring natural change that's been happening for millions of years . The next time anyone tries to convince you the planet is about to collapse ask them for genuine proof not just  opinion . The current prediction is 12 years and it's all over , I hope I'm around to have a chuckle when 12 years goes on by , there have been many failed predictions made in the past .

Don't worry, I believe by November most of the population will realise they have been duped by the climate scam.

Some facts never mentioned....google Patrick Moore

For the last billion years the av earth temp has been 22 degrees.

The current av temp is 14.6 degrees....we are in a cold period!

The av earth temp has only increased 0.8 deg for the past 120 years nothing for the past 30.....miniscule.

Co2 makes up only 0.54% of the atmosphere and has no effect on temp.

Co2 is a plant food ....increased Co2 = more plants = more food...we die without carbon

More carbon is a good thing

Higher temp is a good thing  ...more species and plant growth

For the earth to return to the 22 degrees av would take millions of years.

Life forms decrease if the temp were to drop but we are safe for the next few thousand years whatever happens.

The $500 every Kiwi pays per year is a scam.

 

So today even DJT quoted Patrick Moore

Climate change idiots are about to retreat.

Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace:

“The whole climate crisis is not only Fake News, it’s Fake Science.

There is no climate crisis, there’s weather and climate all around the world,

and in fact carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life.” @foxandfriends

Wow!

We have seen today the damage this climate  scam is doing to our younger generation , these people will be voters in the not to distant future , we should be worried .

It looks like the green /socialist /communist scammers have taken a leaf out of Adolf Hitlers book , brain washed  youth marching in the streets , Hitler would be proud of todays events .

Given half a chance the socialist/greens will eventually become tyrants just like Hitler did , he started out as a socialist .  Regulations , fees , controls introduced under the guise of climate change and for those don't comply the youth in jack boots will sort you out . 

The Nazi Party tried to extend its influence over all aspects of German society. The Hitler Youth and the League of German Girls were developed as Nazi Party youth groups to introduce children and juveniles to Nazi ideology and policy.

founded in 1922 as the Youth League of the Nazi Party  and formally named the Hitler Youth, League of German Worker Youth in 1926.  Its female branch, the League of German Girls  was founded four years later in 1930.

 Early Nazi leaders hoped that the organizations would serve as conduits of political mobilization and ideological indoctrination for the young. The Hitler Youth and League of German Girls were part of the Nazi Party’s plan to entrench Nazi ideology in the German people.

The politics and economics of climate change

by Suze 
 
unnamed-2.gif?resize=630%2C630&ssl=1 Credit: SonovaMin

Kids taking a day off school to protest climate change indicates the extent of political pressure in the classroom and the unscientific view of climate being drummed into children’s heads.

Here’s what the Maori climate change commissioner, Donna Awatere-Huata, said on the AM show after she endorsed children’s wagging school to protest climate change. Quote.

“We have um abrogated our responsibility as we have on so many things, um… but this is one where I think these young people are right to say “we are going to hold you to account, you can’t keep your heads in the sand, you know, it…  the science of this is right now, so get on with it.” End of quote.

AM Show
 


We can do without a Maori climate change commissioner if this is all she’s got to offer, because the science on climate change is far from “right” and it is far from settled.

  • Scientists do not agree that increased emissions of CO2 adversely affect the planet;
  • Scientists do not agree that increased CO2 emissions are the dominant factor in higher temperatures worldwide;
  • Scientists do not agree that increased CO2 emissions are man-made; and
  • Scientists do not agree that global warming will cause rising seas leading to a global catastrophe.

At some point, our heavily brainwashed youth will find out that they are barking up the wrong tree in thinking that they can prevent climate change.

Roger Kimball writes for the CO2 Coalition about the politics of weather and climate change. Quote.

“..it is impossible to turn anywhere in our enlightened, environmentally conscious world without being beset by lectures about one’s “carbon footprint” and horror tales about “global warming,” “rising seas,” and imminent ecological catastrophe.

“…we all “know” that carbon dioxide is “bad for the environment.” (In fact, it is a prerequisite for life.)

We “know” that the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is reaching historically unprecedented and dangerous levels. (In fact, we have, these past centuries, been living through a CO2 famine.)

We “know” that “global warming”—or, since there has been no warming for about eighteen years, that “climate change”—has caused a sudden rise in the seas. (In fact, the seas have been rising for the last 20,000 years, since the end of the last Ice Age.)

We “know” that, when it comes to the subject of climate change, the “science is settled,” that “97 percent of scientists” agree that global warming is anthropogenic, which is Greek for “caused by greedy corporate interests and the combustion of fossil fuels.”

It’s really quite extraordinary how much we do know that ain’t so.

[…] But of course, science is only part of the issue. You cannot read far into the literature on climate change before you realize that science is often dragged in as window dressing for the real issues, which are political, on the one hand, and economic, on the other.

The two hands, it is worth pointing out, belong to the same body and are working to feed the same maw.”

The CO2 Coalition end quote.
 

This provides the answer to the question: how did our children arrive at the brainwashed state we find them in now?

The answer lies in the relationship between climate change, politics and money. Actually, it boils down to wealth – who has the wealth and who wants to take that wealth away? We’ve had a small taste of that here when the government put an end to oil and gas exploration. Quote.

Climate alarmism can also be a pretext for the redistribution of wealth on a global scale. You can never be green enough, Comrade, and climate change offers a potent pretext for the consolidation of governmental power: it is, as one wag put, the “killer app” for extending governmental control.

end quote.

What is presented in schools comes in media fueled and funded by the green movement, its lobbyists and the carbon credit industry driven by the UN. They all owe their very existence to being ‘green’ and their survival rests on their ability to fight to the death any attempts to destroy that ‘green’ foundation.

Scientist and founder of Greenpeace, Patrick Moore, spoke to Fox News about leaving Greenpeace, which abandoned its scientific basis in the 1980s after being hijacked by militant left wingers. Greenpeace became an international politically motivated organisation requiring constant funding to keep it alive.

Scientists worldwide who disagree with the generally accepted and promulgated version of climate change have been researching, experimenting and producing reports on the effect of increased CO2 emissions on the environment. These are the CO2 emissions that climate changers warn us are dangerous for the environment.

But far from promising death to the planet, these scientists say that CO2, along with water, is the building block of all life on earth. Hence, larger quantities of CO2 are a good thing. Increased CO2 makes plants grow bigger faster, increases their water retention – meaning they need less water, and makes them less susceptible to disease.

Banning the use of fossil fuels in order to save the planet is equally ridiculous. Fossil fuels contribute 85% of the world’s energy and the greenies do not have a workable total replacement option.

Should the greenies get their wish to ban fossil fuels worldwide, eight billion people would starve to death because fossil fuels are currently the only way to fuel the daily transportation of tonnes of fresh produce worldwide.

Think on that, Green Party members, as you haul yourself off to your lavish lunches at the Beehive.

Push back from surprizing places . It seems there is growing discontent world wide with the climate scam , I think there is a big opening in NZ for the new Conservatives , they aren't scared to have a crack at this climate crap .

With most of the votes counted in Wednesday’s provincial elections, Thierry Baudet’s right-wing nationalist and climate sceptical Forum voor Democratie (FvD) appears to have won most votes, is the biggest Dutch party and will take 13 seats in the senate in May.

‘Arrogance and stupidity has been punished,’ Baudet said in his victory speech. ‘We are being ruined by the people who should be protecting us,’ he said.

‘We are being undermined by universities and journalists. 

The four coalition parties will now control 31 of the 75 seats in the senate and will need the support of a fifth party to pass controversial legislation. Forum, Labour and Groenlinks, which almost doubled its support, could all fulfill that role..

And have a look what a few incentives can produce in Britain,

 head of the UK’s climate change committee, Tory peer John Selwyn Gummer was a key figure behind last week’s controversial decision to ban fossil fuel central heating in new homes.  But in pushing for the radical change, he failed to declare that the firm he runs has received more than £500,000 from companies which are set to make millions from the decision.  

Gummer is already being investigated by the Lords Commissioner for Standards, Lucy Scott-Moncrieffe, after The Mail on Sunday last month revealed that Sancroft was paid more than £600,000 by ‘green’ businesses, including Johnson Matthey, which stood to benefit from CCC decisions.

And some more push back .

A new £165m coal mine has been unanimously approved by councillors in Cumbria, sparking protests by environmental campaigners. 

Cumbria County Council said it was putting jobs above climate change concerns after its development committee approved the plan on Tuesday afternoon.

West Cumbria Mining, which filed the application, wants to extract coking coal along the coastline between Whitehaven and St Bees in Copeland and process the fossil fuel at a plant nearby.

Last week, Copeland’s Conservative MP Trudy Harrison “wholeheartedly” endorsed the proposed undersea mine, touting new jobs and the “huge” investment it would bring to the area. 

International trade secretary Liam Fox has also given his backing to the project.

And of course China continues to make fools of most western politicians , the only realist is Trump . This report is justification for China to keep on doing what is does , make money and avoid committing financial suicide .

Li and Zha of Nanjing Normal University, say the global hiatus has played a prominent role in their thinking and they see it reflected in China. Using satellite data they found a hiatus in China between 2001-15. They found warming in western and southern China and a 15-year cooling trend in northern China. For China as a whole they estimate that the warming rate is just -0.02°C per decade. The conclude that, “there is a regional warming hiatus, a pause or slowdown in China, and (it) implies that greenhouse gas induced warming is suppressed by other natural forcing in the early 21st century.”

So China recons it has almost no global warming , it's the rest of the world who has problems that they mist deal with and of course keep funding the international climate fund , a fund the China can receive funds from .

We with 5 million people must be close to handing over the 2nd BILLION anytime soon . Ausse is baulking at handing over a few hundred thousand from a population of 25million , how stupid are our leaders .

And yet more push back , things are looking up , reality is putting  fear into politicians , we have a long way to go but the wheels are starting to fall off .

European Union leaders on Friday pushed back a decision on the bloc's long-term efforts to fight climate change, with some countries opposing a pledge to end most emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050.

Leaders meeting in Brussels agreed to discuss the issue again at their next gathering in June, ahead of a UN summit on climate change in the fall.

The delay frustrated environmental campaigners, who argue that the EU should lead global efforts to meet the 2015 Paris accord's most ambitious target of keeping global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius by the end of the century.

"European governments are kicking the can down the road on climate change," said Sebastian Mang, a policy adviser with Greenpeace.

Having just spent 10 days in Melbourne, I experienced last Saturday, “The coldest March day for 42 years”, so the weather gurus stated on TV. I’m now waiting for the looney left and the Alternative Energy investors, to change their slogan from “Global Warming” to “Global Cooling” . There’s an angle for everything!

You’re right. Depending on which side of you he fence they sit, that will determine their statements. Every “We are doomed” Climate Study, is coming from paid leftish leaning science nuts. The Sun and Moon  control our climate. The world will change its practices in good time - based on economic needs, not on some MacDonalds eating mad scientist’s assumptions, who’s still at University at aged 81 ! :)

Greens get serious about climate change

by WH 
 
James-Shaw-green-party-FILE-010717-1120.

As a precursor to the up coming Zero Carbon Act championed by the co-leader of the Green Party, The Hon James Shaw has announced a new policy initiative as his Captain’s Call.

All indications are that he has made this decision on his own initiative as there was no mention of this new policy on the Twitter feeds of the other co-leader, Marama Davidson, or the Twitter feeds of Golriz Gharaman or Eugenie Sage.

Shaw seems to have manned up and made a decision all by himself for a change.

So what is this new policy?

To show that the Greens really do believe that climate change is man made and that we in New Zealand can and must do something to stop or curb the carbon dioxide emissions which are causing the recent heavy rainfall which washed away the Waiho bridge, this newly announced policy will come into force immediately.

As of the beginning of April, the Greens will make all their MP’s sign a declaration that they will no longer use air transport and will be driving only affordable electric cars to get to Wellington.

This will necessitate carpooling with other Greens wherever possible or riding bicycles which can be electric or unpowered; both styles are approved

Shaw has also announced that they have, as a consequence, requested from the speaker that their members be excused from 67% of future parliamentary sittings due to excess travel time required as they wait for batteries to be re-charged on the long trips.

The Greens have given their proxy votes to Jami Lee-Ross to use on any occasions when they are unavailable to make a scheduled sitting time due to battery charge holdups.

Green generation not so Great

by Lushington D. Brady 
 
Anzac-Day.jpg?w=630&ssl=1 Cartoon by Bill Leak.

My ancestors helped carve a modern nation out of scrub and bush. My grandfather fought at Gallipoli and on the Western Front. My parents lived the Great Depression and the Second World War. My in-laws somehow dodged machine-gun bullets and farmed their little family plots under the shadow of the most intense aerial bombardment in history. Those of us who are the beneficiaries of the most peaceful and prosperous era in human history owe everything to the generations of giants upon whose shoulders we stand.

But a generation of spoiled brats wants to tear down everything they worked so hard for, and often died to build. Quote:

My grandfather was part of the Greatest Generation. Toughened by wars and depression, they were patriotic nation builders. Their monuments are long-term productive assets…They survived floods, droughts, bushfires and plagues of mice, rabbits, locusts and prickly pear to develop an agricultural industry that provides food and fibre for millions of consumers. They welcomed boatloads of hard working migrants from many countries…The Greatest Generation made sure their kids behaved at school and did their homework.

Our lives are now controlled by the Green Generation, who follow a globalist agenda. This generation has devalued science, engineering and trade skills and pollute education curricula with the mantras of the green religion. Now they mobilise noisy truant kids for political rallies. End of quote.

These are children who demand the newest smartphones, are chauffered to school where they are cosseted in air-conditioned classrooms, lavishly praised for how unique and wonderful they are, and no one is allowed to fail. They are spared even the confronting sight of a red pencil mark on their – rarely handwritten and increasingly grammatically deficient, not to say badly spelled – work.

And they are endlessly, endlessly drilled in green-left dogma. Quote:

Too many of the Green Generation specialise in obstruction, destruction and delay, while themselves consuming the assets of the past. They cheer the demolition of coal-fired power plants and use green law-fare to stop or delay almost everything else. Among their battle trophies are South Australian and Victorian coal mines and power stations, most new industry proposals in Tasmania, much offshore oil exploration, new dam proposals in every state, and every new proposal for coal development, gas exploration or fracking. They hope to hang the scalps of Adani Coal, Rocky Point Coal, Wandoan Coal and all Galilee Basin developments on their trophy wall. Australia has a huge uranium resources but nuclear power is banned…

The sad history of Whyalla is instructive. The Greatest Generation built an iron mine, a steel works and a great shipbuilding enterprise there. Most of it is idle now…The Greatest Generation created our present world and left many useful assets as their monuments.

The Green Generation is destroying our future. The way things are heading, the lasting monuments to the Green Generation will be the skeletons of abandoned solar “farms” overgrown by lantana scrub, the concrete foundations of bankrupt wind “farms”, and spider-webs of useless sagging transmission lines and towers. End of quote.

Generations who came after the fall of the Roman Empire were often astonished at the crumbling splendour they saw all around them. Some decided that they could only have been built by giants. Quote:

These memorials will serve to remind the next generation of the long, costly and futile war on hydrocarbon energy and the many failed climate forecasts. End of quote.

Big win for Prof Ridd , his attempts to expose this scam cost him his job but he has been vindicated in the courts .

A Federal Court judge has ruled that James Cook University acted unlawfully when it sacked professor Peter Ridd after he publicly criticised the institution and one of its star scientists over claims about the impact global warming had on the Great Barrier Reef.

The physics professor argued that the Townsville-based university, which is renowned for its marine science expertise, dismissed him for breaching the university’s code of conduct.  

At a hearing last month, Professor Ridd’s barrister Stuart Wood argued his client was entitled to criticise his colleagues and the university’s perceived lack of quality assurance processes.

In 2016, Professor Ridd emailed a journalist to allege that images given to the media by the Australian Institute of Marine Science and Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority were misleading because they showed poorly affected corals, which were selected over nearby healthy coral and used to show “broad scale decline” of reef health.

Professor Ridd claimed the use of the images was “a dramatic example of how scientific organisations are happy to spin a story for their own purposes”.

He also said his colleague Professor Terry Hughes, the head of JCU’s Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, would “wriggle and squirm” when asked to explain the discrepancies in the images.

Professor Ridd was censured again when he repeated the claims on Sky News.

After a third alleged violation of the code of conduct, Professor Ridd was sacked in April 2018.

 

So much of what we have been told about the health of the coral reef is just more climate B/S .

Some parts of the reef have died but there are other parts where the reef has regrown! The mad left scientists only show the worst for their agenda. It’s like an anti-farms loony showing a pic of a dead cow - but not broadening the pic to show 250 other healthy cows!

Peter Ridd

I have published numerous scientific papers showing that much of the “science” claiming damage to the reef is either plain wrong or greatly exaggerated. As just one example, coral growth rates that have supposedly collapsed along the reef have, if anything, increased slightly.

He went on:

The Great Barrier Reef is in fact in excellent condition. It certainly goes through periods of destruction where huge areas of coral are killed from hurricanes, starfish plagues and coral bleaching. However, it largely regrows within a decade to its former glory.

These statements went down like a cup of cold sick with his university colleagues, not least when he publicly criticised their misleading studies which had claimed – on little scientific evidence – that the Great Barrier Reef is being harmed by climate change.

He wrote:

 ”…we can no longer trust the scientific organisations like the Australian Institute of Marine Science, even things like the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies – a lot of this is stuff is coming out, the science is coming out not properly checked, tested or replicated and this is a great shame because we really need to be able to trust our scientific institutions and the fact is I do not think we can any more.”

The ARC Centre of Excellence is part of James Cook University. Not unsurprisingly, the university was keen to slap down Ridd’s uncollegiate behaviour.

But now a judge has found that he was perfectly within his rights to blow the whistle on his colleagues’ dodgy science.
