believe "Think Global Act Local" translated
to our local support group and our global information website.
And we believe in transparent, accountable science.
Meet us here;

website is designed to promote thoughtful awareness of the
nature of some major challenges to the human race at this
time; and to consider creative ways to meet them. The threats
are often not the well-known ones that people claim; a major
part of the problems is "fundamentalist" alarms
that are often geared to lining a few pockets. We include
in-depth information about Climate Science, and refer to the
idea of Peak Oil, to finite resources generally, and to some
less-known alternative energy sources. We address some questions
about population growth. We journeyed ourselves from a naive
belief in Global Warming to a home-grown, well-informed, science-based
scepticism. We share information about bright ideas and good
work, which currently major on Climate Science and attempts
to bring about the serious reforms needed there. But we also
refer to Transition Towns (minus Manmade Global Warming),
harnessing tidal power, and other initiatives, in fact, whatever
seems to be of neglected importance in global and local issues.

defence budgets could easily fund a global programme of education
and research for sustainability and cooperation. This would
pay for itself, in teaching the electorate to avoid policies
based on bad science. We need to know about the world in which
we live; we need enough skills to survive; enough self-awareness
to know our limitations and be able to listen to others; enough
reason to hope; only then can we see what we need to develop.
We can little afford to spend our last cheap energy on warfare
and mistakes of ignorance, if such action denies our grandchildren
a future. Our homespun ingenuity and our scientific creativity
may yet solve our pressing issues of population overshoot,
energy scarcity, resources depletion, waste, pollution, loss
of "connection" and other threats to sustainability
by ways as yet unseen. Or we may be facing hardship in a damaged
world that cannot sustain us as it has done in the past, without
time to recover and readjust.
have an opportunity to rise to the occasion. The problems
may appear to be physical, environmental - but they cannot
be solved at this level. The solutions must ultimately come
from Great Spirit - and be based in sound science. We all
know this in our heart of hearts.

that we have used up more than half of what
is available; and that what's left will cost
more and more to extract. Global economy has
come to depend on oil. But - how true is this?
Who stands to gain by supporting Peak Oil?
One gallon of petrol drives a car for
pushing it that far is several weeks' labour.
Peak Oil says
that we have no alternative but to plan for
a "lean energy" future where we
will use far less energy altogether. It is
perhaps healthy to think like this. Alternative
energy sources can only meet part of our present
demand, likewise hydrogen, coal, and bio-fuels,
which have other problems as well; and even
if the waste problems were solved, nuclear
energy is not a sustainable alternative in
its present form. However, there may be other
possibilities, known in potential to Science
or to so-called "pseudoscience".
All today's Science was once "pseudoscience".
Green World Trust says that
CO2 levels always followed temperature
changes (up to 800 yr delay)
oceans and biosphere are the great regulators
CO2 emissions are tiny by comparison with
the natural flux
CO2 rise has benefited plant growth everywhere
alarmism is promoted for many reasons, both
selfish and "for the greater good"*
- there is
NO abnormal sea level rise
- there is
no increase in extreme weather but insurance
claims are rising
- raise us
a scare story and we can raise you its disproof,
plus why it arose.
Grindelwald, Harry Potter and the Deathly
good allround scientists say that
there is no threat of manmade global warming,
- malaria is behaving as
normal in hot and cold climates, there
is no climate influence,
- polar bears have greatly
increased their numbers,
- glaciers have been receding
since the Little Ice Age,
- Pacific islands are not
sinking - they are building too much and
they want money,
- Antarctic ice has increased
as much as Arctic ice has decreased,
- politician Al Gore's film
is totally either untrue or misleading,
- there are many
navigators' stories of less ice in the
Arctic than today,
- carbon dioxide
has always followed temperature in geological
- the Sun's unusual
activity over the last century has been
the prime cause of the high temperatures
- and the rest is due to
the Urban Heat Island effect and other
- we've had even
higher temperatures in recent historical
- temperatures are
now falling globally,
- newspapers sell
- "global warming"
related alarms get research grants,
- IPCC has a political
agenda, that sought to discredit CO2 right
from the start...
Towns are developing creative
ways forward, where ordinary people can participate,
can plan energy descent, to cope with "worst
case" scenarios, can plan to relocalize
- which also re-empowers people as individuals.
We can do an "oil vulnerability audit"
or similar, for our business. They would be
wonderful if they did not have a totalitarian
attitude that is suppressing the good science
that shows we have no climate warming problem.

- We keep on returning "back to basics" as increasing
awareness keeps on challenging what we believed and supported
previously! Like Dumbledore with Grindelwald, we had to do
a complete U-turn regarding Climate Science, which we now
regard as officially supremely corrupt. This meant that sadly,
despite begging for them to be open (as they believed themselves
to be), better grounded in basic Science, Scientific Method,
and ability to detect B***S***, we were no longer able to
support Transition Towns as before.
