Climate change: The past is the key to the present

It has never been shown that human emissions of carbon dioxide drive global warming. The past shows that six of the six great ice ages was initiated when atmospheric carbon dioxide was higher than at present. For more than 80% of time, sea level has been higher and it has been wetter and warmer than now. The Great Barrier Reef and Pacific island atoll nations are healthy and part of a dynamic Earth. Past climate changes have not been driven by atmospheric carbon dioxide and have been driven by tectonic, galactic, orbital, solar, oceanic and lunar cycles. Sporadic events such as volcanoes have changed climate. Measured modern changes are within variability, climate models of future events have failed, treatment of carbon dioxide and temperature measurements leave a lot to be desired, the sources and sinks of carbon dioxide are yet to be understood and we ignore the past at our peril. The modern climate catastrophism is unrelated to science.

Our second event will be on May 9, 2022 at 7:00 pm MDT.

How to destroy a perfectly good electricity grid in one million expensive steps
Australia: the Crash Test Dummy of Renewable Energy

Despite having more coal and uranium per person than almost anywhere on Earth, Australia has still managed to make some of the most expensive electricity on the planet. Mostly thanks to a pagan quest to control the weather.

Find out what it takes to achieve state-wide blackouts, and a tripling of wholesale electricity prices in just five years. Laugh til you cry at the folly of a nation that controls just 1.5% of human emissions yet is trying to change the global weather by sacrificing a commodity which also happens to be its largest export earner.

The free market in Australia has been so distorted that national assets that took two generations to pay off are being closed even while they produce the lowest cost electricity available. And the crowds applaud! Here in Subsidy-World, coal plant owners profit more by shutting them down than by running them, so much so, when offered millions to sell the assets, the owners prefer to destroy them instead.

If wind and solar power were going to make it anywhere — it would have to be in the only first-world sun-baked land that straddles the tropics. But free “clean” energy, turned out to a vandal on the clockwork efficiency of a national grid. We saved on fuel but spent more on land, batteries, storage, stability, maintenance, wages, management schemes, and transmission lines. We used to use electricity to run factories, now we use factories to run electricity grids. If we shut enough production lines, we can keep the lights on! It’s such a circus that managing electricity even involves giving away movie tickets. We’re planning for a thousand mini blackouts and calling it “progress”.

It doesn’t matter what we do, it’s never enough — For two years Australia installed more renewables per capita than anywhere on Earth. Since 1990 Australian emissions have been cut 46% per capita — yet we’re still called Global Pariah’s.

Corporate Sponsorship for our Online Events. You can help!

Our annual event is coming up in May and we want to reach as many people as possible by keeping these events free to the public. We want to share our scientific and economic policy messages with the public. Corporate sponsorship can help us to break even. Our big expenses are the event production, video editing, and advertising.

We have 3 levels of Sponsorship this year.
• Gold sponsors at $10,000
• Silver sponsors at $5,000
• Bronze sponsors at $2,500
• All levels get sponsorship recognition on our event page website, social media advertising, mention at the live event and in the posted recording. Smaller donations are gratefully accepted.

Please contact us at 1-888-789-9597 Ext 2 or email at contact(at) for more information.

Thank you for your continued support.

Celebrating our 20th year of operation!
