Our Position on AGW/Global Warming/Climate Change:

Since we have had the ability to have an internet presence (right after Algore invented it) our position on this subject has remained consistent. In 2001, the IPCC (The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) the political body governing the “science” of AGW as it was then known, issued their agreement with our position: “In climate research and modeling, we should recognize that we are dealing with a coupled non-linear chaotic system, and therefore that long-term prediction of future climate states is not possible.” This is buried in the IPCC’s Third Assessment Report (2001), Section 14.2.2.2. page 774.  Can’t deny that!  We call this the prime principle of climate science, and affirm it except for one reservation, and that is the solar activity of the sun with its cyclical patterns.  We are climate affirmers based on the IPCC’s principle just quoted.

The uncontested absurdities of today are the accepted slogans of tomorrow. They come to be accepted by degrees, by precedent, by implication, by erosion, by default, by dint of constant pressure on one side and constant retreat on the other – until the day when they are suddenly declared to be the country’s official ideology. ~ Ayn Rand

IPCC’s uncontested absurdity is to attempt to prove, what they have admitted cannot  be proved.

Because the IPCC was never organized to be anything but a political body striving to prove a false theory (AGW) what their contributing scientists wrote was simply skipped over if it did not agree with their predetermined outcome.  This is not science. This is incestuous propaganda. Therefore, ignoring the  prime principle has led to the death of millions of wild animals, the waste of billions of dollars, and the corruption of science on a massive scale. The cover-up of one of the world’s largest Ponzi schemes is deceptively brilliant.

 

Until the prime  principle (above) can be proven wrong, all climate models produced are proving themselves wrong. The models fail because the variables in the theory are enormous and only very few have been included. Here is an example of just one of the huge variables. While the biggest green house gas, water vapor, is not even part of the assumptions in creating the 102 models that have all shown themselves to be wrong. Carbon dioxide is barely perceptible compared to water vapor, and is not a toxic gas as the EPA has ruled.  It is the gas of life, without which, this discussion would not be taking place. The world has been warming, but not exclusively because of carbon dioxide, and nowhere near as alarmingly as the political schemers at the IPCC want you to believe. And how many data points over what period of time are we using to accurately track warming?  The answer to most of this AGW hysteria is, ” follow the money” and you will see exactly who is getting rich in the process.

Canadians Talk: This  devastating documentary from America’s northern neighbors in Ontario, Canada uncovers the drastic consequences of living amongst  industrial wind giants.  Their health has suffered, their electrical costs have risen, their civil rights have been stripped, and their community has been split. Follow the money and follow the politics brought to you by Canada’s Green Energy Act.  Quiet Canadians have started the fight against this massive  government Ponzi scheme. Will American’s learn anything from our quiet neighbors?

Australia Committing Energy Suicide: Australian politicians have just about destroyed their economy with their irrational race to the alternative energy nirvana promised by the gurus of climate change.  Visit this Australian web site dealing with the destructive reality caused by wind farms down under.  The energy costs to Australians now force them to choose between food or energy.

The Russians Aren’t Buying: Scientists in Russia, who once experienced the state science of Lysenkoism, aren’t buying the AGW/Global Warming/Climate Change babble.

Climate By The Numbers.  Watch this video and become more knowledgeable than the entire Obama administration, including the EPA.  Devote 60 minutes and you will understand how  real world numbers falsify all the hysterics about climate.  The credentials of the presenter, John Christy, are impeccable as you will see.  Although the questions at the end are hard to hear, be sure you listen to the answers.  If you are not a video buff, then spend some time on this article to learn how climate works.   Learn about the devastating affect of energy poverty on the world’s poor. Energy poverty spread by the non-science of AGW/Climate Change.  Energy poverty spread by delusional politics as citizens of Minnesota discovered.

March 6, 2014: Remember Blood Diamonds? This term was changed to “Conflict Diamonds.”  The same thing is now being done to our wildlife by politicians who are blind to the science and economics of alleged alternative energy technologies. Or maybe they just don’t care as they wage war on our wildlife!  Almost every time we use electricity, an animal’s blood colors the light, or taints your toast.  In Germany the energy extremists’ schemes have turned electricity into a luxury good, and now Germans are beginning to see the outcome of those schemes. It is time to stop this extremist energy exploitation by the real 1 percenters.  In Spain, the avian holocaust is staggering, and the costs exceed any sane economic models except those in your green dreams.  Even the Chinese are beginning to realize the massive problems associated with their gargantuan wind farms.  Audubon Magazine has an excellent piece by Ted Williams  on the avian and bat slaughter in America.  In the United Kingdom it appears they are finally moving to rid themselves of windfarms. The Hawaiian experience is predictive as well. High tech data centers all rely on cheap energy from hydrocarbons not wind farms, and from Canada, we get this report that further undermines the rotten science excusing the wildlife wars. Here is another major problem with these alternative energy schemes, which is not soon to be solved. How about the entire state of South Australia being blacked out because of wind farm failures?

Or how about the “green giant” Google, one of the largest electricity consumers on the planet via their data centers? They have researched alternative energy sources for their data farms and their engineers came to the conclusion that it was not possible. Look at solar projects carefully for a death toll that might surprise anyone who thinks solar is pure and safe.  Coal supplies most of the power for all of our data searches…oops!  The climate change conundrum confounds only those who prefer calamity theories to reality, often academic elites.

Colorado’s Phil Anschutz is working on building the largest eagle killing machine in the world with his 1,000 turbine Sierra Madre and Chokecherry projects in Wyoming.  The BLM estimates that 46-64 eagles will be slaughtered each year. We suspect that estimate is conveniently on the low side.  Go Phil, that’s a fine thing to do with your billions!  Maybe he plans to put all those dead eagles on display at his 45,000 acre Eagle’s Nest Ranch?  Go Phil!

Here is why another billionaire (W.Buffet) builds windfarms, the tax credits, in his own words.  Essentially, your political representatives are giving investors like Buffet and Anschutz tax relief by underwriting  these wildlife wars with your taxes. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside- how about you? The chart below shows where the harvest of subsidized energy is greatest.

Stop Conflict Stickers

Join our campaign to stop the egregious slaughter of birds and Chiropterans (bats) by politicians promoting expensive, inefficient, polluting wind turbines and the solar furnaces that fry birds flying near them. None of these alternative energy schemes would exist without significant taxpayer subsidies, which are weakening America’s electrical grid.. Order our static cling stickers (below) which will alert everyone to this tragedy, forced on all who use electricity, by politicians and tax subsidy leeches.  We will list organizations and politicians (below) that support our mission. Is your organization or elected representative listed below?  Ask your bird group, professional/environmental organization, political party, town council, business, church, or representative why they aren’t on the list.

We know the good people at the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and various state agencies cannot speak the truth for fear of losing their jobs, so we may not see their names below. However, a recent report reveals that America’s wind industries claims about wildlife mortality have been benefiting from fabricated data. This report is a real shocker, and illuminates federal and some state wildlife agencies in a very bad light.  Here is another report that most ” alternative enviros” will not wish to read. And if you think the goal of all of this alternative scheming is affordable energy, take a look at another type of conflict resulting from the current corruption of science. If you like your affordable energy, you can keep it!  Update: A court action may finally begin!

The plan outlined by the Obama administration has been a tremendous success destroying thousands of jobs. Here is what the cost of electricity looks like with renewable energy.

Contact Us to book an eagle and a speaker to learn more.  Our program, Eagles, Energy, the Environment & Economics looks at the evidence of “alternative energy” and helps you understand the hype.   Read about Conflict Energy Where are you in the energy wars?  Hydrocarbon and nuclear energy, especially Thorium, is still the best alternative to the aerial holocaust being forced on everyone by our corrupted political process, and corrupt scientists.

Stop Conflict Stickers

 

Submission Form: Get Listed!

Yes! I am an American individual who deplores what politicians are doing to enable the killing and crippling of eagles and other wildlife…sign me up with the coalition!

Yes, as an elected representative, I am totally against using alternative energy subsidies to kill and cripple eagles and other wildlife. I have just ordered your Stop Conflict Energy stickers and am proud to put my name on your coalition list.!

Yes, as a business,  a church, or a fraternal/professional group, as a environmental organization, a birding group, I wholeheartedly support your mission to Stop Conflict Energy schemes like wind farms and solar furnaces. I have just ordered your stickers and am proud to add my organization’s name to your Conflict Free Energy Coalition list.

I have purchased one or more of your Stop Conflict Energy stickers, and want to add my name to your Conflict Energy Coalition above.

*We acknowledge that no living process is without conflict.  The amount of conflict is a relative metric, however, and when one compares wildlife mortality numbers, it is demonstrable that wind farms and solar furnaces do kill and will kill far more animals than nuclear and hydrocarbon systems. These deaths are a massive waste of resources on many levels, which is  why we have created the Stop Conflict Energy campaign.  Help get the word out.

Letters Regarding the Conflict Free Energy Coalition Campaign

From time to time, we receive letters regarding this campaign.  Thank you for the positive ones, however, the ones we publish below are critical, and these will be published for their educational value. The most recent are on top. Our responses are on the right.

Subject: Birder, CFO member, former Vestas employee who’s seen the light.Kristy Astry Our Response: Normally we do not publish letters that agree with our position, however, this quick note from Ms. Astry was just too good to not publish. Thanks Kristy.
Subject: Hello raptor keepers, I was at your open house and think you’re doing a fine job providing a home for these beautiful birds. However, I am quite distressed at your stone-headed approach to wind energy. This planet is in major trouble, and reducing carbon emissions must become a major priority world-wide. Wind energy has made great strides in adopting measures to do just what you advocate – keeping birds alive and undamaged. Your efforts would be much better spent in working with – not against! – the industry toward that goal. To adopt such a militant attitude does the raptor center, and your good work, a true disservice.Julia Bucher Our Response: Thanks Julia! You are correct, I am stone-headed (probably the nicest way I have heard my condition described), but you are wrong about your assertion that our planet is in major trouble and reducing carbon emissions is a major priority world-wide. Should we follow Al Gore’s carbon-reduction plan with his jet setting and massive personal carbon foot-prints?What is scary is that less than 30% of the public has any literacy in science, which is how computer models promoting AGW have become a religion for a noisy group of  people who are pushing the current version of Lysenkoism onto the gullible. If you have taken any time to follow the links on this page, then you will discover that Big Wind is more interested in harvesting big tax credits than creating safe, clean, energy.The current data on the safety, and green aspect of wind energy is abysmal, but you need to open your eyes, and look at the data, and I will  continue to be stone headed about the unwarranted aerial abortions of the stunning creatures that are being decimated by blind adherents to  thoroughly discredited AGW computer models.  Anthropogenic Global Warming is what it used to be called Julia, before it was changed to the more encompassing Climate Change, Global Warming, etc.  These terms mean nothing and cover everything.If we do not adopt a militant attitude when we see the body counts piling up, who will?  You have obviously taken a position, well, we are in opposition to that stance, and will take the stones thrown at us by those who seem to operate with a stone-age understanding of the world.P. Reshetniak: Director
Subject: Get Out Of Politics: Your support for right wing hate mongers like Tom Tancredo has NO PLACE in a non-profit wildlife foundation. Remove me from all future e-mails and solicitations. I’m going to actively purse having the non-profit status of this PAC masquerading as a wildlife group removed and all funds returned to contributors.Shame on you!Chuck Dunleavy Our Response: Thanks Chuck! We provide a place where anyone, of  any political persuasion may join our coalition to get  bad politics out of the process of  creating energy systems for one and all. Thus far, only Tom Tancredo (as a political entity) has decided he wants to stand with us against the wholesale slaughter of eagles, birds in general, and bats. He is supporting us, not the other way around, as you imply.  We do not require anyone pass a politically correct test before you join our coalition to bring this avian holocaust to an end. When you refer to him as a right wing hate monger, is it because you are one on the left side of the spectrum?  Without  politics in wildlife management and conservation Mr. Dunleavy, the Endangered Species Act would not exist; nor would any hunting and fishing or game management program. Access to national and state parks, is all determined via the political process, and that consists of a myriad of diverse species, including Homo sapiens, such as yourself. It is the  bad politics of this administration that created a 30 year waiver for wind farms to slaughter eagles with impunity. It is bad politics of both parties that has permitted a small group of Hopi Indians to sacrifice live eagles during religious ceremonies during past decades. We stand against eagle slaughter, your  position is obvious, shame on you!  Oh, and “purse” away, actively or otherwise!  And Chuck, you may remove yourself from our future e-mails, by using the built in feature.P. Reshetniak: Director.
Subject: Re: Open House Last Notice and Our Dynamic Duo
Click here for 10 full quotes on Environment OR background on Environment.
  • Scored 28% on Humane Society Scorecard on animal protection. (Jan 2007)
  • US’s world-scale consumerism is a measure of success. (Jun 2006)
  • Voted NO on environmental education grants for outdoor experiences. (Sep 2008)
  • Voted NO on barring website promoting Yucca Mountain nuclear waste dump. (May 2006)
  • Voted YES on deauthorizing “critical habitat” for endangered species. (Sep 2005)
  • Rated 5% by the LCV, indicating anti-environment votes. (Dec 2003)

And you think Tancredo gives a rip about Raptors? Your tacit endorsement of him has made me question your integrity and that of your organization. If you truly think Tancredo has any interest in conservation that isn’t tied to “big oil”, you are deluded.

Perhaps you need to rethink your “three sticker” policy, spending $10 on stickers is easy, unlike actually voting for conservation. Or perhaps, though I hate to think so, you and your organization have become pawns of “big oil” yourselves.

In any case, if you don’t rectify this you can count me and my friends and family among those no longer supporting you, and working to redirect any funds to alternate organizations.

Larry Switzer

Our Response: Thanks Larry!  Listing anyone’s votes on a specific issue, as you have provided, without showing the entire bill put up for a vote is nice cherry picking, but hardly damning of anyone.  Our goal is to gain support for our Stop Conflict Energy Coalition, not to determine who is free of sins, real or imagined.  We will let you throw those stones.And using the League of Conservation Voters as a neutral judge of anyone’s position on conservation issues, simply shows how one-sided you are. If you go to this link, it is obvious the LCV supports one party exclusively.Should another political persona, from the opposite side of the political spectrum stand with us against the aerial holocaust, they will be credited just as we have Mr. Tancredo. “Big Oil” is a better option in our perspective than “Big Wind.”  Big Oil was never able to receive a 30 year waiver to kill wildlife with impunity as has Big Wind from the current administration.  That’s no delusion.Politicians of both persuasions have lots of ways to hide behind their votes. The “I was for it, before I was against it.”  syndrome is not uncommon amongst the political crowd.   Actions speak louder than words, and Tancredo has taken a small action to stand with us against this aerial slaughter.  If you can arrange some “big oil” money to support our campaign, I will send you 3 stickers.  Neither Gore or Bush Jr have much to endear them to us, however, just look at how they actually live now.  Which one is a friend of the environment?Larry, while I don’t know who your friends and family are, your $20 sent to us two years ago was very welcome, but our position on the bad science behind the bad politics, which is driving Big Bad Wind was quite apparent on many pages of our web site back then.I trust  this rectifies our position for you. We just don’t think the promise implied in “if you like your wildlife, you can keep your wildlife” has any credibility.P. Reshetniak: Director
