Thierry Meyssan considers the predators and prey in Syria, and the IL-20 war crime

Western demands on Syria
by Thierry Meyssan
Translation Pete Kimberley
Voltaire Network 18 September 2018

While on the ground, the war is ending, and only Idlib still needs to be freed from the terrorists, the Western powers are starting trouble all over again. They have just presented their demands to the UN special envoy, Staffan de Mistura. Unsurprisingly, the United States refuse the process led by Russia, for the unique reason that they didn’t have anything to do with it, while the United Kingdom and France seek to impose institutions which would allow them to govern the country from the shadows.

Nominated in 2014,before the Russian military intervention against the jihadists, Staffan de Mistura is a pro-US diplomat whose job consists of working for peace in Syria in the name of the UNO. Four years later, he continues to seek loop-holes which benefit the Western powers.
The special envoy for the Secretary General of the UNO for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, received a delegation of the Astana Group (Iran, Russia, Turkey) in Geneva, then, on 14 September, a delegation from the Syria Small Group (Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United States, France, Jordan and the United Kingdom).
From the Western side, ambassador James Jeffrey and Colonel Joel Rayburn led the US delegation, while the ambassador and ex-director of the Exterior Intelligence Service (DGSE 2012-16), François Sénémaud, presided the French delegation.
Each delegation handed the UN a secret document listing their demands, with a view to applying pressure to the intra-Syrian negotiations which are currently under way. Russia Today leaked the Western document [1], just as, two weeks ago, Kommersant had leaked the internal directives of the UNO [2].
- First remark - point 3 of the Small Group document resumes the internal directive of the UNO : «There will be no international reconstruction assistance in Syrian-governement-held areas absent a credible political process that leads unalterably to constitutional reform and UN-supervised elections, to the satisfaction of potential donor countries».
Germany, which has participated in meetings of the Small Group, does not seem to have been represented at this meeting. The night before, their Minister for Foreign Affairs, Heiko Maas, had dissociated himself from this point. Just before he met with his Russian counterpart, Sergeï Lavrov, he tweeted that his country was ready to participate in reconstruction « if there exists a political solution leading to free elections [3] [4]. »While for the Small Group and the UNO, reconstruction will not begin until the potential donor countries have attained their war objectives, for Germany, it can accompany the process of political reconciliation.
- Second remark – the different international interlocutors refer to resolution 2254 of 18 December 2015 [5]. However, the Small Group extrapolates the meaning of the text. Although the resolution of the Security Council states that the composition of the Constitution is the affair only of the Syrians between themselves, the Small Group declares that it must be drawn up only by a Committee placed under the auspices and control of the UNO.
This is obviously aimed at sabotaging the decisions taken in Sotchi, in other words, to destroy what has been achieved over the last few months and oppose the role of Russia in the solution to the crisis [6]. The United States aim to conserve their status as the indispensable power, while the United Kingdom and France intend to pursue their colonial project.
- Third remark - the Small Group means not only to transfer the responsibility for the composition of the Constitution from Sotchi to Geneva, it already has an idea what it should be. This would be to reproduce the model that Washington has already imposed on Iraq, and which maintains a state of permanent crisis for the greater benefit of the Western powers. The powers of the President would be exclusively formal; those of the Prime Minister would be non-existent at a regional level; and those of the army would be limited.
The colonial powers maintain their power in the Near East behind an appearance of democracy. They always manage to constitute governments which do not represent their people. Since 1926 in Lebanon and since 2005 in Iraq, the institutions have been conceived above all to prevent these countries from once again becoming nation-states. Lebanon is divided into religious communities, and Iraq into distinct regions according to the predominance of a religious community. As for Israël, it no longer has a representative government, not because of its Constitution – it doesn’t have one – but because of its electoral system.
- Fourth remark – while resolution 2254 specifies that elections must be held under the supervision of the UNO, the Small Group considers that the Syrian agency in charge of their organisation must work daily under the orders of the UNO, notably in matters concerning eventual complaints of fraud.
In this way, the Western powers conserve for themselves the possibility of cancelling results which do not correspond to their wishes – it would be enough to register a complaint and declare that it is valid. The Syrian People would have the right to vote as long as they fall into the trap which has been laid for them, and even then, on the condition that they vote for the leaders who have been chosen for them.
In Europe, the citizens are seeking their sovereignty, in Syria, they are fighting for their independence.

Will London, Paris and Tel-Aviv be sanctioned by Moscow and Washington?
by Thierry Meyssan
Translation Pete Kimberley
Voltaire Network 25 September 2018

Will London, Paris and Tel-Aviv be sanctioned by Moscow and Washington?
The confrontation which recently occurred in Lattakia may result in a complete global redistribution of the cards. There are two reasons for this, the second of which is being hidden from the Western world. First of all, it cost the lives of 15 Russian soldiers; secondly, it not only implicates Israël, but also the United Kingdom and France. This is potentially the most dangerous crisis in more than 60 years. We now have to find out whether President Trump, currently in the middle of his election campaign, is capable of supporting his Russian counterpart, in order that the United States and Russia may sanction the colonial powers as they did in 1956, during the Suez crisis.

On 17 September 2018, France, Israël and the United Kingdom carried out a joint operation against Syrian targets***. During the brief moments of combat, a Russian reconnaissance plane was brought down by Syrian ’friendly fire’. Study of the recordings shows that an Israëli F-16 had flown hidden behind the Ilyushin Il-20 in order to confuse the Syrian Air Defences.
The destruction of a Russian military aircraft by the fault of Israël, during a joint operation by the United Kingdom, France and Israël, caused consternation in all the chancelleries. Since the start of hostilities in Syria seven years ago, if there were a ’red line’, it was that the different protagonists should never endanger Russian, US, or Israëli forces.
We are sure about very little of what actually happened, except that :
- a British Tornado took off from Cyprus to land in Iraq. During the flight, it violated Syrian air space in order to scan the Syrian defences and make the allied attack possible.
- less than an hour later, four Israëli F-16s and a French frigate, L’Auvergne, fired on targets in the Syrian governorate of Lattakia. The Syrian air defences protected their country by firing their S-200s against the French and Israëli missiles.
- During the battle, an F-16 used a Russian Ilyushin Il-20 as a shield. The Ilyushin was flying a surveillance mission over the area, localising jihadist drone launch sites. The Syrian defences fired a missile, aiming for the thermal signal of the Israëli aircraft. Theoretically, therefore, it could have destroyed the Russian plane by mistake.
This is, however, implausible, because S-200 missiles are equipped with a reconnaissance system able to distinguish between friendly and enemy targets, which the Russian Minister for Defence successively confirmed, then denied. In any case, the Ilyushin was destroyed, without our knowing for certain how, or by whom.

Making war on Syria without nodding donkey approval, Mrs May?


We allow the occupation regime in London to do this to fellow humans in breach of national and international laws. The cabinet/closet members are psychopathic barbarian sacks of it and their gang of nodding donkeys is composed of people that should either be in rehab, jail or padded cells along with their leadership. The "innocents" are guilty by their failure to publicly condemn the dedicated criminals.

HOW WE KNOW THE IL-20 WAS SHOT DOWN BY FRANCE OR the UK
HOW WE KNOW THE IL-20 WAS SHOT DOWN BY FRANCE OR the UK
By 'FB'
Fort Russ Sep 27, 2018

Intro by J. Flores
[...]
By ‘FB’ – I will ‘prove’ the ‘technical parameters’ that ALLOW THE S200 AND IL20 TO DEFY THE LAWS OF PHYSICS…
You see friends, Saker and especially Martyanov are full of crapola…
It is IMPOSSIBLE for an S200 which flies at 2.5 kilometers per second and would cover 100 km in just 40 seconds… to have hit an airplane that continued flying for another ~5 minutes after that close call with the flight of Israeli F16s…
Here is the infographic map released by the Russian MoD…
https://i.postimg.cc/brYXb99c/IL20_Crash_markup.jpg
The flight path of the F16s is recorded with the dashed blue line…the flight of the Ilyushin Il20 spy plane is recorded in the solid red line…[that from the MoD].
I have circled the close encounter point in yellow, with a yellow arrow pointing to it…that is the point where the F16s are supposed to have ‘hidden’ behind the radar reflection of the much bigger Ilyushin, and is the ONLYpoint at which this could possibly occur.
But the Ilyushin somehow manages to fly north for another 40 km…and even make a 90 degree east turn to come in to land at Hmeimim … a total flight time of around FIVE MINUTES.
BUT the S200 cannot fly for FIVE MINUTES, it is one of the fastest SAM rockets in the world, with a flight speed of 2.5 kilometers per second and would cover 100 kilometers in JUST 40 SECONDS.
Its maximum flight time is 150 SECONDS [2.5 MINUTES], IN WHICH TIME IT WOULD COVER ITS MAXIMUM DISTANCE OF 375 KM.
PLEASE TELL US HOW THIS IS POSSIBLE ANDREI…?
The specs of the turboprop IL20 are here.
It has a cruise speed of about ~600 km/hr, which is 10 km/minute…that’s at its cruise altitude of 8,000 meters, the MoD reported that the airplane was hit while flying at 5,000 m and on its descent to land at Hmeimim.
The MoD map clearly shows that the Ilyushin flew north for 40 km after that ‘close encounter’ with the F16s, and then made another right 90 degree turn back toward the Syria coast on its final descent back into Hmeimim.
Only after making that turn to final [descent] was the airplane hit.
So we have the airplane flying for FIVE MINUTES AFTER THAT SUPPOSED ‘RADAR MASKING’?
And the S200 which can cover 300 km in TWO MINUTES FLAT was doing what exactly for those missing THREE MINUTES?

Russia blames Israel for the shooting down of her EW aircraft (UPDATED 2x)
September 18 2018
It is pretty clear what took place yesterday night. Even if you don’t read Russian, the following chart released by the Russian Ministry of Defense says it all: Basically, 4 Israeli aircraft were sent on a bombing mission against targets near the Russian facilities in Khmeimim and Tartus (which, by itself, is both stupid and irresponsible). The Israelis *deliberately* did not warn the Russians until less than a minute before

The Saker: IL-20 (2) Putin, Israel and the downed Il-20 (IMPORTANT UPDATE)
.
Sept 21 2018
[This column has been written for the Unz Review]
[...]
First, let me start by a very simple and primitive question:
Why in the world has nobody considered that the Israelis might have truly screwed-up?
[...]
What do we know for sure as of right now (Sept 20th)? We know that the Israelis did not give enough warning time to the Russians, which is in direct violation of an agreement between Israel and Russia. Do we know that they did it deliberately? No, we don’t. We really don’t.
Anybody with any military experience will tell you that what is known in the USA as FUBAR, SNAFU and “cluster****” is something all militaries do on a daily basis. Furthermore, the Israelis have had terrible screw-ups many, many times. Just a summary of all the screw-ups of the famous (and much over-rated) Mossad would take pages and include many outright embarrassing incidents (for a good laugh, just look at the inept Israeli attempt at assassinating Khaled Meshal!). So why is everybody assuming that the Israelis carefully planned the whole thing?
Next, let’s assume that this is simply the typical case of Israeli arrogance (not a myth!) and that they decided to inform the Russians as late as possible. Does that at all entail that the maneuver of the Israeli F-16s pilots to seek cover from the S-200 missile was something they had planned in advance? Does anybody bother to look at the actual (as opposed to Hollywood) record of the Israeli Air Force during past wars when they were actually challenged by a reasonably capable air defense? There is a detailed discussion (in Russian) about this here which can be summarized like this: as soon as the Israelis start losing aircraft their martial prowess rapidly vanishes. Now please recall this: the Israelis have had recent losses, some admitted, some denied, but there is no doubt that they are tense and very concerned. Bottom line: I would fully expect the Israeli pilots to freak out and seek cover as soon as they are told by their warning system that they are being painted by a radar in tracking mode (the S-200 has a semi-active radar homing guidance system). If that is the case, and I am not saying that this is the only possibility, then the fault is of the Israeli pilots, not of their commanders or the Israeli state as a whole. Yes, the command responsibility is the one of the state, but not the guilt for having engaged in such an evasive maneuver (besides, knowing the price placed by Israeli on goyim lives, this would be just so typical, would it not…)
At this point, I need to ask another question: what would the Israelis gain from shooting down the Il-20? They sure ain’t gonna frighten the Russians (Russian military don’t scare easy) and the Il-20 will be replaced. Scaring the Iranians or Hezbollah? Forget it – not happening. Maybe there was a real lucrative target that they destroyed? Yes, maybe, be so far we don’t know anything about this. So what would be the point?
Then the “sister question”: what would the Israelis risk by deliberately shooting down a Russian EW aircraft? Well, in theory, they would risk having their aircraft shot down and their airbases engaged with Russian missiles. That is highly unlikely, I will admit, and the Israelis probably understand the Russians very well (many of them being from Russia). But could they be sure that the local commanders would not order an immediate retaliation (as their current rules of engagement do authorize them to!)? Let me remind everybody that this Spring, the USA was not so sure at all, and following the words of the Russian ambassador that “not only missiles but their launchers would be destroyed” the USN and Air Force decided to shoot as little as possible and from as far as possible. As for the British sub, its captain decided to cancel the planned missile strike entirely (they were being shadowed by two Russian subs). Seems to me that the potential risks of that kind of operation would be pretty high, while the potential rewards rather unclear.

On the topic of the Russia-Israel-Syria affair, which has culminated in the downing of a Russian Il-20 on September 17th just off the coast of Latakia…
by Ollie Richardson for The Saker Blog
I will first start this article by saying that I have read, both intentionally and unintentionally (stumbled upon), lots and lots of opinions about this specific topic. The main bulk of these opinions recycle the usual blaming of Russia and offer suggestions for how things “should” have been done and “should” now be done. The consensus seems to be that it is Israel that is solely to blame, and it should thus be severely punished. However, even though Russia was lambasted by social media “experts” for the fact that the state of Israel still existed on September 18th (the day after the downing of the Il-20), the criticism of Moscow’s policy vis-a-vis Israel’s general airstrikes in Syria has been unwavering.
Examples of the criticism are:
“Russia doesn’t defend Syrian troops against Israeli airstrikes”;
“Putin doesn’t verbally threaten Bibi with retaliation should he strike again”;
“Russia doesn’t give Syria the S1/2/3/4/500”;
and so on and so forth (you get the idea).
So, let’s outline, once again, what Russia’s policy vis-a-vis Israel is in Syria:
Q) Does Israel violate Syrian airspace?
A) No.
Q) Has Israel directly killed Russian troops?
A) No.
Q) Does Israel put Hmeymim in any direct danger?
A) No.
These answers are important. Why?

Source: NATIONAL SUMMIT TO REASSESS THE U.S. – ISRAEL “SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP”
A brief history of unprosecuted Israeli foreign agent, smuggling and espionage cases
by Grant F. Smith

I’m not going to tell you about the ten years of research that have gone into trying to answer one single, hard question which is “is Israel and its U.S. lobby above the law in the United States?” I’ve spent ten years trying to answer that question, I going to share with you a few case studies very quickly.

We got off on the wrong foot back in the 1940s. If you look closely enough, you can see ongoing damage from that poor launch in which the United States was visited by the government-in-waiting, the Jewish Agency, led by David Ben-Gurion, and rather than do anything else, they set up a vast, illegal smuggling network through an archipelago of non-profit organizations that were there specifically to steal WWII surplus and channel it to Jewish fighters in Palestine. Some of the materiel was bought for cents on the dollar; some of the materiel was stolen outright from the U.S. Marines in Hawaii, as was the case of Nathan Liff and .50 caliber machine guns. Materials and Manpower for Palestine stole the entire list from the U.S. Chaplain so they could recruit more effectively in sending veterans of WWII to fight in Palestine. The Sonneborn Institute, which was organized by a former Zionist Organization of America chair, was very effective by channeling through second and third countries all sorts of tank, ammunition, aircraft, explosives, and was able to get it for pennies on the dollar completely in violation of the Arms Export Control Act and all sorts of laws including the Neutrality Act. They cared little about American shipping materiel inside boilers and mismarked boxes dropping onto piers in New York. They didn’t care about that because they had a higher purpose. That purpose was to win a state, and they were successful.

If we look at some of the activities inside the Justice Department to cover up all of this, what you see is a very effective counter-force. Whenever the FBI was getting close, and there is a 7,000 page file in the National Archives with surveillance photographs of B-17s and materiel and guns moving through the U.S. logistics system, what you would find in the Justice Department’s own files lobbyists such as Abraham Feinberg—the uber-lobbyist, cash-bundling king—would assemble a “war-chest” and mobilize people to quash prosecutions. They had a hundred people they were going to arrest and prosecute on the West Coast alone—never happened. There were only a handful of people who ever suffered felony convictions, relatively low-level people, the big fish of the Jewish Agency—Nahum Bernstein, writing the checks from New York—never indicted. And this was because there was a vast amount of influence over the president. A vast amount of access to the Justice Department attorney general. And so the basic advice and consent rights of Americans were fundamentally undermined. They had no say; they had no choice about what was happening to this military equipment. That had been decided for them, and the necessary prosecutions didn’t happen. Hank Greenspun, he has a balcony on Pennsylvania Avenue named after him at the Newseum, became rich smuggling weapons to Palestine. He offered $25,000 to many people in Washington to quash those prosecutions, and only got a felony [no jail time].

New Silk Roads define brand China
.
October 05 2018
by Pepe Escobar (cross-posted with the Asia Times by special agreement with the author)

Belt and Road Initiative is a strategic axis embodying the organizing Chinese foreign policy concept for the next three decades
The New Silk Roads symbolize way more than high-speed rail lines crisscrossing Eurasia, or a maze of highways, pipelines and port connectivity. They represent a Chinese alliance with at least 65 participating nations, responsible for 62% of the world’s population and 31% of its GDP.
The Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), as it’s formally known, is not a “road” or a collection of roads, like the Ancient Silk Road. It’s a strategic axis embodying the organizing Chinese foreign policy concept for the next three decades. And BRI goes beyond Eurasia and Africa, extending all the way to Latin America as well, as Foreign Minister Wang Yi stressed in January at the summit between China and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean states.
Tackling every field from communications strategy to infrastructure, finance, culture, education and geopolitical relations between states, BRI aims to reinforce China’s political capital.
The emphasis so far – we’re still in the initial planning stage – is not even on concrete projects, although some are already game-changers. Take for instance the new railway linking the dry port of Khorgos, on the China-Kazakhstan border, to Almaty (in Kazakhstan), Tashkent, Samarkand and Bukhara (in Uzbekistan), Turkmenabat (in Turkmenistan), to Mashhad in Iran and all the way to Tehran.
Because China is the only nation in the world to have devised a nearly global strategy in terms of trade and investment, BRI is allowing China to shape what Washington defines as the “rules-based” international system closer to its priorities. The global economic context, slowly but surely, will be adapting to what BRI represents.
So it comes as no surprise that from an Anglo-American point of view, BRI-bashing is now a cottage industry. BRI is routinely derided as neo-colonialism and debt enslavement, pronounced “dead” in Malaysia – and soon to be dead in Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
Yet the fact is Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohammad, for instance, sees BRI as an opportunity – as it aims to connect Eurasia with each city node profiting from the increased business traffic. BRI just needs to be tweaked to fit into each nation’s priorities.

The new Silk route on rails
.
October 06 2018
By Nat South for The Saker Blog

This is the second part in a series that looks behind the scenes, at particular aspects of trade, shipping and transport involving Russia. This analysis was partially written back in spring 2018, before taking academia seriously for a while.
Historically & to this day the US depends on the Mahan theory of sea route control and control of significant maritime chokepoints for power projection. Hence, the US hegemon relies heavily on its heavy outstretched military muscle, especially the use of any of the 11 carrier groups as part of this infrastructure. This is connected to traditional maritime trading routes.
We are seeing an ascendency of Chinese military projection in the last decade, within increasing Chinese naval presence in those areas traditionally dominated by the US Navy. The New Silk road as embodied by the Great Belt & Road Project will also inevitably change military dominance, (as China is building its third aircraft carrier and launched its 29thType 054A frigate in January).
Without repeating the articles by Pepe Escobar on bigger geopolitical and economic picture on the New Silks Roads (here [see above] and here***), I will concentrate on some the ‘cogs’ that will underpin the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). The BRI started with a large-scale international economic forum was held in Beijing in May 2017. More than 100 countries, many heads of states attended, including President Putin. The forum kicked off a whole series of projects world-wide, with long lasting & far-reaching socio-economic impacts.
Similarly, the newly created Yuan petrodollar could create a seismic shift by eventually pushing out the US dollar monopoly and eventually lead to the demise of the status quo of the US dollar as a global reserve currency. The US dollar is the weak link in Washington’s US unipolar vision of the world, as well as focus of military power. De-dollarization has been underway for a while in order to create an alternative economic order****.
Part of the change in trade routes, primarily driven by China, is the development of rail networks for containerised trade as well as planned High Speed rail trade routes (as mentioned in Pepe Escobar’s article) connecting China to Europe, through a combination of several intermediary countries, including central Asia*****. These networks are known as:
East-West international transport corridor
The North-South international transport corridor
Middle Corridor (EU- China, circumventing Russia with banned products).

Of course, the US is acutely aware of this and it is doing everything that it possibly can to throw a few “spanners in the works” in some of the Middle East and central Asia segments. This can be seen as part of a long-standing geopolitical tussle, as outlined in Sir Halford Mackendrie’s ‘Heartlands Theory’, for ultimate control of the Asia-Europe trade corridors.

BOMBSHELL: audit of global warming data finds it riddled with errors
.
Anthony Watts WUWT October 7, 2018

Just ahead of a new report from the IPCC, dubbed SR#15 about to be released today, we have this bombshell- a detailed audit shows the surface temperature data is unfit for purpose. The first ever audit of the world’s most important temperature data set (HadCRUT4) has found it to be so riddled with errors and “freakishly improbable data” that it is effectively useless.
From the IPCC:
Global Warming of 1.5 °C, an IPCC special report on the impacts of global warming of 1.5 °C above pre-industrial levels and related global greenhouse gas emission pathways, in the context of strengthening the global response to the threat of climate change, sustainable development, and efforts to eradicate poverty.

This is what consensus science brings you – groupthink with no quality control.
HadCRUT4 is the primary global temperature dataset used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to make its dramatic claims about “man-made global warming”. It’s also the dataset at the center of “ClimateGate” from 2009, managed by the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at East Anglia University.
The audit finds more than 70 areas of concern about data quality and accuracy.
But according to an analysis by Australian researcher John McLean it’s far too sloppy to be taken seriously even by climate scientists, let alone a body as influential as the IPCC or by the governments of the world.

Main points:
The Hadley data is one of the most cited, most important databases for climate modeling, and thus for policies involving billions of dollars.
McLean found freakishly improbable data, and systematic adjustment errors , large gaps where there is no data, location errors, Fahrenheit temperatures reported as Celsius, and spelling errors.
Almost no quality control checks have been done: outliers that are obvious mistakes have not been corrected – one town in Columbia spent three months in 1978 at an average daily temperature of over 80 degrees C. One town in Romania stepped out from summer in 1953 straight into a month of Spring at minus 46°C. These are supposedly “average” temperatures for a full month at a time. St Kitts, a Caribbean island, was recorded at 0°C for a whole month, and twice!
Temperatures for the entire Southern Hemisphere in 1850 and for the next three years are calculated from just one site in Indonesia and some random ships.
Sea surface temperatures represent 70% of the Earth’s surface, but some measurements come from ships which are logged at locations 100km inland. Others are in harbors which are hardly representative of the open ocean.
When a thermometer is relocated to a new site, the adjustment assumes that the old site was always built up and “heated” by concrete and buildings. In reality, the artificial warming probably crept in slowly. By correcting for buildings that likely didn’t exist in 1880, old records are artificially cooled. Adjustments for a few site changes can create a whole century of artificial warming trends.
Details of the worst outliers
For April, June and July of 1978 Apto Uto (Colombia, ID:800890) had an average monthly temperature of 81.5°C, 83.4°C and 83.4°C respectively.
The monthly mean temperature in September 1953 at Paltinis, Romania is reported as -46.4 °C (in other years the September average was about 11.5°C).
At Golden Rock Airport, on the island of St Kitts in the Caribbean, mean monthly temperatures for December in 1981 and 1984 are reported as 0.0°C. But from 1971 to 1990 the average in all the other years was 26.0°C.

https://tinyurl.com/y7fngg68
The report:
Unfortunately, the report is paywalled. The good news is that it’s a mere $8.
The researcher, John McLean, did all the work on his own, so it is a way to get compensated for all the time and effort put into it. He writes:
[...]
The overall conclusion (see chapter 10) is that the data is not fit for global studies. Data prior to 1950 suffers from poor coverage and very likely multiple incorrect adjustments of station data. Data since that year has better coverage but still has the problem of data adjustments and a host of other issues mentioned in the audit.

Genocidal, terrorist and terrorism supporting, apartheid rogue state, Israel.

For whom the bell tolls -

The imperialists want Russia and or Iran to strike Israel. Probably a false flag is on the cards.
Jerusalem would be a target of high geo-political value. Few care about it in the West but the zios would go even more apopolectic than they are already.

Joking apart, the Golan Heights recovery by Syria, with compensation for the civilian victims, structural damage and chaos caused by israeli regime aggression and support of terrorist groups would be the most significant blow to zio expansionism and give the palestinians the opportunity to treat the non ethnic jews to some of their own medicine, flooding towns and villages with effluent, rationing potable water, forcing non ethnic jews to drink from puddles, etc.
An eye for an eye.

Treason most high

If Britain insists on having a dinosaur royalty then first it must be appraised of the odiousness of the present illegal occupants of the office and their Crown Ltd.

Illegal? As HMQEII, Mrs Windsor committed treason in signing away British sovereignty and further breached her contract with the people in failing to dismiss successive traitorous regimes that consistently commit treason in colluding with foreign powers against the public, consistently break international laws and support NATOCIA with our defence forces in heinous acts of genocide and nation destruction in pursuit of geo-political and financial profit for the few.

Of course the justice department has done nothing to protect the brits, being as they are, members of the homosexual and paedophile boys club, Masonry, with loyalty to Rothschilds and the Crown ahead of Britain.

Global Warming? Oops! Never Mind!
.

By Jonathon Moseley
American Thinker April 1, 2013

What was the Earth's temperature yesterday? Nobody knows. In fact, it's a ridiculous question. Almost every place on Earth today has a different temperature from that of any other location. So, is our planet's temperature rising? Do we even know?

However, it is officially admitted: Global warming stopped 15-20 years ago. The mainstream media is struggling very hard to explain this away. They admit that the Earth stopped warming 15 to 20 years ago. But just you wait -- disaster is coming unless we vote liberals into office. They cannot explain the pause. Yet they "know" global warming will kill us all unless we vote Democrat.

So was global warming ever real? Or is this hysteria a hoax, like the Y2K computer disaster that never happened?

Just concerning today's temperature first, we would have to measure hundreds of thousands of locations and then average temperatures from all over the planet. We don't have that many weather stations. So we don't even know what yesterday's temperature for the planet was. We certainly don't know what the temperature was a hundred years ago or a thousand years ago.

Are today's weather measurements accurate? Heck no. Weather stations are measuring the jet blast from airplanes taking off at airports, the heat from air conditioners on office building rooftops, the heat of asphalt parking lots and streets and cities.

Meteorologist Anthony Watts is one of the greatest heroes of truth and freedom. His blog "Watts Up With That?" has changed the world and is one of the most influential resources on global warming. Watts became truly famous with his recurring "How Not to Measure Temperature" series reviewing the world's automated weather stations.

For example, concerning Henderson Field, in the Solomon Islands, Watts reported that jet exhaust from taxiing airplanes blows straight into the weather equipment. Do we care about the Solomon Islands? Well, if you are trying to track the planet's overall temperature, yes, you must include the whole world. Otherwise, you are simply watching weather variations moving around from one part of the planet to another.

Rooftop weather stations were busted. Many weather stations are on the roofs of major office buildings, where they are affected by the heat blast from massive industrial air conditioners. The sun also heats the top of the building and the surrounding buildings and streets. So the weather station is actually measuring the "heat effect" of the city -- not the climate. They are also measuring the nearby air conditioner. "How Not to Measure Temperature, Part 48" exposed a building-top station in Baltimore.

In "How Not to Measure Temperature, Part 93," Watts reports how the weather station most responsible for claims of warming temperature in England is stationed next to a massive air conditioner on the ground and a brick building. And they are all together inside a ground depression. This traps artificial heat, causing an inaccurate temperature reading. The temperature reading is also near industrial activity in London.

In "Part 90," Watts reports on a station set in a small parking lot, on the asphalt, next to an air conditioner. The blog "Gust of Hot Air" reports on a weather station at the Marysville, California Fire Department. It used to be in a grassy yard. Now the yard is a parking lot. And the measurement equipment is within 10 feet of an air conditioning unit that cools cell tower electronics and the bar-be-cue that firefighters cook with a couple times a week.

Nearly all of the weather stations in the world were created only after the invention of the airplane (at least those which report organized, historical records). Very few spots on the Earth were being sampled before World War I. But the farther back in time we go, the worse it gets. So the sampling of the Earth's temperature was changing over time. We are comparing apples and oranges when we compare the sample set that exists today with the much smaller sample sets the farther we go back through the decades of data.

But isn't sampling an accepted scientific tool? Only if it is truly random according to careful rules and techniques. Weather station samples are fixed in certain locations, always the same, not randomly selected for each year. And the Earth's weather is tremendously variable. But it is not random in the sense necessary for statistical measurement. We may not understand all the highly complex weather patterns. But the sample of weather stations is fixed -- or in other words, not random.

We are measuring not changes in the climate, but rather the "heat effect" of expanding cities due to urban sprawl. Most temperature measurements are at airports. A great many airports were built out in the empty countryside, perhaps 5 to 25 miles from the city they serve. But urban sprawl has now extended outward to those airports. So as we compare data over past decades, we are seeing the increase in temperature caused by expanding cities -- not a change in the planetary climate.

It is well-known that there is a "heat effect" when asphalt roads and concrete buildings replace trees, grass, and open fields. This creates a localized increase in temperature at ground level. (However, this affects the distribution of heat, since sunshine is still the same over the entire planet. It probably does not change the global temperature overall. It will increase convection and temperatures near the ground.) Yet it's actually worse than that. And the heat content held within water, air, and rock is different from one to the next. So temperature swings in the air may be misleading.

Although the concept of a thermometer is thousands of years old, no scale of precise standardized measurement was invented until the 1700s. Therefore, we have no meaningful records of temperature earlier than the Industrial Revolution, in terms of the ability to compare measurements recorded over time. Even then, scientific instruments must be calibrated for accuracy. Even a thermometer attempting to measure temperature on a standardized scale may not read the same as another thermometer. Accuracy in scientific instruments requires standardization and careful calibration. Quality has not been consistent since the 1700s.

So global warming hysteria is based not on any accurate measurements of global climate, but rather on "proxies." That is, scientists give their interpretation of tree rings and bacterial samples in fossils. Global warming "science" is strikingly similar to a witch doctor reading the entrails of a goat.

Here's the problem, and it is a foundational precept in science: you cannot analyze data to a greater precision than the original measurement. So if you have data measured only in yards, you cannot analyze that data to draw conclusions at the level of inches. You will get errors. With global warming, we don't know historical temperatures with precision. Therefore, imprecise historical data cannot support the attempted predictions.

Well, then, how can we say that global warming stopped 15-20 years ago if we really don't know what the temperature is or has been? We have no valid basis for saying that the world is warming. We can't say that it is or it isn't. But the whole global warming concept is simply...well...hot air.

Actual issues in need of focus, rather than the broken CO2 hypothesis
.
Deforestation in favour of GM crops, especially oil palm and soy is likely the biggest factor in climate change after solar UV emission variation.

What no-one appears to be paying attention to is not how humans are affecting natural climate change by CO2 emissions, but how vast tracts of land being mono-cultured with such as wheat, urban expansion, nuclear and huge non nuclear explosions in tests and in covert warfare, and regular ordnance and other atmospheric pollution by commercial and military aircraft, industry, nuclear plant venting etc., let alone HAARP damage to the ionosphere that must be perverting natural climate change.

Instead, the JNWO JOWG funding by CO2 tax is promoted as the essential cure-all that in fact has negative, costly reults that benefit only the enemies of us.
