Rothschild and Weather Central

Ken Craggs on just how far the Rothschilds are involved in the global warming scam. Ken’s piece lists chapter and verse from 1977 and concludes:

In January 2011, E.L. Rothschild LLC, a private investment company owned by Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and his wife Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild acquired a 70% controlling stake in Weather Central, the world’s leading provider of interactive weather graphics and data services for television, web, and mobile. Weather Central was subsequently merged with The WeatherChannel, formerly known as The Weather Company, which is owned by NBC Universal, Bain Capital, and Blackstone Group.

Sir Evelyn de Rothschild talks here about a subsidiary of the Weather Channel called which is also known

Lord Jacob Rothschild is a member of the International Advisory Board at Blackstone Group, under whose umbrella BlackRock was founded. And according to ‘The Economist‘, “[BlackRock] owns a stake in almost every listed company not just in America but globally.

You bloodmooning early morn?

or just howling a bit?

When the moon is at “perigee”, its shortest distance from the Earth, it is 226,000 miles away and appears 14 per cent larger and 30 per cent brighter than when it is at its furthermost point.
The last time this coincided with a lunar eclipse, when the moon is covered by the Earth’s shadow, was in 1982 and the event will not be repeated until 2033.

Arctic sea ice increasing

This from 2012:

Measurements from ESA’s CryoSat satellite show that the volume of Arctic sea ice has significantly increased this past autumn.

The volume of ice measured this autumn is about 50% higher compared to last year. In October 2013, CryoSat measured about 9000 cubic km of sea ice – a notable increase compared to 6000 cubic km in October 2012.

This from 2015:

June 2015 volume was 18.500 km^3,  900 km^3 above to the 2014 June value. June  volume was 38% below the maximum  June ice volume in 1979 and 23% below the 1979-2014 mean and about 0.5 standard deviation above the long term trend.

By their fruits [and vegies] ye shall know them

Was it Lord Beaverbrook who said:

Now who is responsible for this work of development on which so much depends?  To whom must the praise be given?  To the [ones] in the back [gardens].  They do not sit in the limelight but [it is they] who do the work, trowel in hand.

Oh bless this bounteous harvest from the fens,brought in by Mrs. Chuckles [with varying degrees of assistance from Chuckles]:

The sea has always risen

What are they actually trying to do here?

Indigenous stories of dramatic sea level rises across Australia date back more than 7,000 years in a continuous oral tradition without parallel anywhere in the world, according to new research.

Sunshine Coast University marine geographer Patrick Nunn and University of New England linguist Nicholas Reid believe that 21 Indigenous stories from across the continent faithfully record events between 18,000 and 7000 years ago, when the sea rose 120m.

As Chuckles asks:

Why is the Guardian pushing this? I mean, I know it’s ‘indigenous people’ so it must be wonderful and the equivalent of carved in stone tablets, but, if it were true, it destroys their whole global warming hysteria narrative.

Or are they saying those EEEVVILLL! aborigines destroyed the world back then with their carbon emissions?

Kuiper Belt Objects


From This is True:

The New Horizons space probe got a big burst of publicity when it flew by Pluto recently. We all saw a nice photo of the icy planet, and we’re all done, right? Not even. First, it’s going to take 18 months to download all the photos and data from the brief Pluto encounter, and then it can start to concentrate on the next phase of the mission: looking at other things, those located in the Kuiper Belt.

Like the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, but much more massive, the Kuiper Belt is a large collection of …“objects.” But we know very little about it. Hence New Horizons’ next mission is to got a close-up view of KBOs — Kuiper Belt Objects (that’s what they’re really called) — because they are leftover bits of stuff that formed our solar system.

We don’t know much about what’s out there, but little space probes like this give us little bits of knowledge that helps paint a big picture.

The trestles of Myra Canyon

Another from Amusing Planet:

The Myra Canyon section of the Kettle Valley Railway in southern British Columbia, Canada, is a 9.6 km section of railway tracks along the famed Myra Canyon located south of Kelowna on Okanagan Mountain. The track traverses the extremely mountainous terrain by means of sixteen timber framed trestles, two steel bridges and two tunnels, all of which are abandoned now, providing mountain bikers endless opportunities at exploration.


The Secret World of the Internet

She calls herself The Messiah of The Illuminati or
littlehoneyissosweet. She styles herself as a “good person” and the Higham as “evil”. She wrote to me in the deep of the night.

That’s not unlike the gnostic who styles himself gentle and accepting of all, on the path to illumination and the Christian as the follower of the demi-urge, destroyer of worlds. It went public in The Da Vinci code.…
