    Is Switzerland really going WTO
    after declaring EU negotiations a swizz ?

      How dare the Chinese grow their economy and improve the quality of life the China people ! It’s still a suburban myth that they are building coal power fire stations with added co2


    • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

      Along the lines of a rough calculation made by Alan Jones (on Sky News Australia) I estimate that the UK is responsible for just 0.00066 of the world’s CO2.

      (1) UK is roughly 1% of the world population (70m / >7bn) but causes 1.1% of CO2 emissions (Christopher Booker, in “Global Warming: A Case Study in Groupthink”, on page 68).

      (2) 84% of all earthly CO2 is from plants, 10% from volcanic activity and just 6% from human activity, chiefly the burning of fossil fuels.

      So 0.011 * 0.06 = 0.00066; or 2/3 of 1/1000 of the world’s total CO2.

      Meanwhile, China emitted 24% of the global total (2017) and planned to double that by 2030, while India would treble its emissions in the same period.

      Pointless doesn’t even begin to describe this sort of gesture politics; Nick Timothy (Mrs May’s then joint Chief-of-Staff) called the Climate Change Act “a unilateral and monstrous act of national self-harm”.


      • Fedup2 says:

        Yes – virtue signalling becomes serious when it is economic and personal self harm – such as nonsense about removing gas boilers – the level of co2 emission is going up whatever the west does – I for one an glad .


      • StewGreen says:

        The idea is that non-manmade CO2 is in balance
        So that changes in that 6% might make a difference
        Then they go into fantasies about positive feedback , but never negative feedback.
        eg the idea that temp increases might melt ice and release trapped methane another methane gas.

        Negative feedback might be higher temps causing more plant growth causing CO2 reduction etc.


      • Richard Pinder says:

        Isn’t it 4 percent of the 400ppm of CO2 being man-made and volcanic. That’s 10ppm for Volcanic and 6ppm for Man-made CO2.

        Ice core data shows that there is a 800 year lag for natural CO2 level increase. The Medieval Warm period peaked 800 years ago, so that proves that most of the increase was natural CO2 from the deep Ocean which has a 275 ratio mixing with the Atmosphere over a period of 800 years. The upper Ocean has a 50 ratio mixing with the Atmosphere over a seven year period.

        “Carbon cycle modelling and the residence time of natural and anthropogenic atmospheric CO2, (1997) by Tom Segalstad” shows up the scientific fraud in the Carbon Cycle for man-made CO2.

        The IPCC has “Cancelled” Henrys law, isotopic evidence in tree rings and Ned Nikolov & Karl Zeller’s findings about Venus, which has a quarter of a million times more carbon dioxide that the Earth.

        That means that Man-made carbon dioxide has contributed only 0.000798 Kelvin to Global Warming.

        The scientists that proved that Svante Arrhenius produced an error are James Clerk Maxwell, Max Planck, Ned Nikolov & Karl Zeller.

        So my question: In calibrating Carbon Dioxide Warming, how much does Carbon Dioxide contribute to the Greenhouse effect. The Answer is this: Nitrogen is the main Greenhouse gas at 100.6 Kelvin and Oxygen imparts 30.3 Kelvin. Argon is third accounting for 1.7 Kelvin, and Water vapour is fourth accounting for 0.3 Kelvin. Carbon Dioxide only produces 0.0532 Kelvin by molar mass.

        But then isotopic evidence says that only a maximum of four percent of CO2 in the Atmosphere could be man-made or volcanic, that’s 10ppm for Volcanic and 6ppm for Man-made CO2, so therefore in two hundred years, man-made CO2 has contributed only 0.000798 Kelvin to Global Warming.

        It slightly above 400ppm, so Man-made carbon dioxide has contributed eight ten thousandths of a degree Kelvin to Global Warming.

        So if Britain is responsible for 1.1 percent of the 0.0008 Kelvin. Then Britain has contributed 0.0000088 Kelvin to Global Warming.

      Claire’s intro to her videos
      I was in a debate on Public Service Broadcasting yesterday in the Lords.
      Everyone sees a potential crisis around the BBC, but they assume it’s a technical issue
      They seem to think the problems with the BBC bias/unbias popular/unpopular question can simply be solved with a regional broadcasting centre outside of London or diversity schemes…
      They have no idea that the problem with the BBC is a lack of diversity of opinion.
      From Brexit coverage to Covid, recent political events have shown an unwillingness to be open to differing views, and a hesitancy to trust viewers and listeners with varying opinions…
      I was shocked at just how complacent speakers were – any dissent on the idea of the BBC as a saintly institution was caricatured and ridiculed.
      And, as usual, I mistimed my speech so missed my last 30 seconds…!

    Alex Belfield’s voice poll

    CNN fired a pro-Hitler worker last week
    “CNN contributor, Adeel Raja who expressed his wish to see Hitler back in a now deleted tweet, won the best investigative journalist award in Pakistan in 2016.”

    .. also AP fired Emily Wilder because of her Palestinian activism in college.


  6. vlad says:

    At 9:30 this morning, a ‘man’ attacked and seriously wounded a French policewoman with a knife, and subsequently two others.

    Nearly 9 hours later, at time of writing the BBC make no mention of the attack.

    I guess White Lives Don’t Matter to Al-Beeb.

    Naturally, his motives are a complete mystery to the authorities, though there is a small clue in the French media report:

    ‘…The suspect had been released from jail in March following a conviction for violence. He was reported by prison staff to have been radicalised in jail…’

    That word ‘radicalised’ rings alarm bells. And might explain Al-Beeb’s remarkable lack of interest in the story.



    • Fedup2 says:

      It is a bit strange isn’t it ? The BBC loves Europe – love France – which is always right whereas the British are always wrong ( see sea fishing ) —
      Yet when it comes to the war taking place between the Muslim enemy within and the police – nothing – burning churches and cathedrals – nothing ….

      How does that work ? Is there an agenda ? Yes.


      • vlad says:


        Twelve hours after the attack that seriously injured a female police officer, still nothing on the usually Europhile BBC.

        There is, however, a piece on Wally the walrus who was ‘hit by boat’ on reaching France.

        So there you have it: Walrus’ Lives Matter more than White Lives to the BBC (at least when the assailant is an islamist).

        Buncha wallies.



      • Mustapha Sheikup al-Beebi says:

        By way of analogy, cast your mind back to the Saturday afternoon professional wrestling on ITV in the 1970s.

        Mick McManus and Steve Logan were both “baddies” who sometimes got together in a tag team. McManus, for example, would be a baddie in almost any individual bout against a “goodie” such as Catweazle or Johnny Saint; likewise Logan.

        One day there was challenge tag match, with McManus & Logan against Kendo Nagasaki & “Gorgeous George” Gillette. Because the masked Nagasaki was a super-baddie, and his manager George was a big mouth, the crowd – unusually – supported McManus and partner, who dished out some punishment to George but lost by two falls to one.

        The action required a kind of double-think from the crowd, who had to forget McManus’ customary rule-bending and his cultivated mean-machine persona, in order to support him against (the presumably even nastier) Nagasaki. The same thing happened when Shirley “Big Daddy” Crabtree (previously a baddie) split from tag partner Giant Haystacks and then beat him in an individual fight: suddenly Crabtree was the goodie and everyone was meant to forget the recent past.

        Please excuse the long analogy … or, alternatively, enjoy the trip down memory lane! The point is, there is a hierarchy of favour within the BBC agenda, viz. Muslims and Blacks at the top, homosexuals and transsexuals next, then disabled people, foreigners of colour, foreigners, White women and – last of all – White men. “Victims” will be found at the start of the list and oppressors near the end. The double-think is needed when there’s a clash between, say, Muslims and gay rights or transgender and women’s rights, with the latter losing out in either case.


    • StewGreen says:

      The man, who was on a terrorist watch-list
      No motive for the stabbing has emerged, but the attacker was “a known radical and suffering from a very serious psychiatric illness”, one source involved in the investigation said.

      “This French-born French national, around 40 years old and known to police services, was released from prison in 2016
      where he was pointed out because of
      a strict practice of Islam and radicalisation”

      That had led to his inclusion on a watch-list of potential terrorist sympathisers, he added.

      Arrested in 2013 for aggravated theft, on his release he was ordered to follow treatment for schizophrenia.

    BBC 6 pm news.

    Regarding the murder of two people by a person, it is concluded as follows.

    Those to blame.
    Security services

    Not apparently to blame
    The perpetrator
    His religion
    The wokes who set up the conference at which the murders took place.

    There was then coverage of a grovelling apology from the Police.

    The lunatics are firmly in charge of the asylum.


  15. Sluff says:

    BBC 6 pm news part 2

    There has been huge fraud in the benefits system during the pandemic. A shattering £8 bn of taxpayers money has gone AWOL.

    The BBC show a police raid and ‘a man’ is taken into custody.
    Needless to say, his face is not shown.
    But all I can say is that his hands seem to have a very heavy sun tan.

  17. Fedup2 says:

    Good old C4 news blaming the law enforcement agencies for a Muslim terrorist on London Bridge . What they didn’t say was that there are so many potential and actual Muslim terrorists that they are overwhelmed by working out which one is gonna take to slaughtering civilised people again …

    Obviously there was no mention of the motivation of the Muslim terrorist or the methods he used to deceive the dysfunctional probation and prison service

    Just an update – at the end of C4 news the muppet said that the security services contributed to the London Bridge attack . A serious allegation and one which requires investigation . Perhaps by OFCOM – but then we know that’s just a rabbit hole ….
