Climate Redesign 2010 – Call out

Bindarri (an experimental collaborative project involving climate communicators and creatives to generate ideas on how to increase measurable mainstream support for action on climate change) are inviting creative people to participate in Climate Redesign 2010 which is part of Melbourne’s State of Design Festival official program. The central event will be on Saturday 17th July.

Bindarri will be brainstorming together, sketching, modelling, drawing, writing, building briefs and testing ideas, and will be inspiring each other, having fun, sharing skills and forming working relationships with the people who will energise our ideas and implement them in the real world.

Public momentum on climate change action is stagnating, Copenhagen flopped and Rudd back-flipped on legislating a strong ETS. Meanwhile the issue is not going away and scientists are getting more alarmed with the scientific evidence.

Australian groups have created the technical and economic solutions and now we need big creative ideas to inspire the Australian community and our leaders to implement these solutions.

We are calling for Australia’s creatives to step up to this challenge and provide the ideas, skills and leadership that will transform the movement and catalyse real change.

We want to abandon the stereotypes of past communications and actions to embrace the new, the clever, the dynamic and agile, the unexpected.

    Anthropogenic global warming is a proven fraud, if you do not desist pushing this fraud you are an accessory and will be held accountable. Ignorance is no excuse before the law. Even low level, small effort research will yield the truth for you, please review these websites http://www.climatedepot.com/, and of this heroic Aussie http://joannenova.com.au/. I might come and bull horn your event, its that important.

  2. I urge you to show the evidence of your claim “Anthropogenic global warming is a proven fraud”. The evidence is supported by the vast majority of scientists working in this field. I did like your site “climate depot” as it looks as crazy and amateur as your claims. A nice laugh for the morning. Until i saw your site, I thought for a moment you might actually be taking your claims seriously…….

  3. Michael

    The evidence is legion that anthropogenic global warming is a fraud. A simple guide is available here http://joannenova.com.au/global-warming/ (The Skeptics handbook), which is an excellent overview of the issues. For a more in depth analysis http://www.scienceandpublicpolicy.org/ has research papers and in depth articles and of course the previously mentioned websites are full of important and relevant information. The oft repeated lie that the majority of scientists agree with the fraud is mildly annoying however as a result of Climategate (Google that), many of the scientists who were sacked, threatened, silenced and forced to retire because of their views etc, are coming out and publishing papers disproving anthropogenic global warming, so momentum may still be with the fraudsters but the wheels are coming off their little band wagon. For those with an even more enquiring mind may wonder how and why a fraud of this scale could be perpetrated can find out more by reading this website http://www.green-agenda.com/. I am sorry that these websites are not pretty enough for your designer sensibilities, but really, it is about the quality of information, not the pretty pictures. If you are honest and have integrity you will read the opposing info and then form your opinion…

  4. I asked for evidence. I downloaded and read the document that was clearly put together by a marketing person. The little science that is included is out of date, screwed out of proportion and is very selective. It is also lacking credible references.

    “The oft repeated lie that the majority of scientists agree”. This is a well documented fact. Show me ythe evidence that this is a lie. You will also note that within the very small minority of skeptics, the majority of these are linked to or paid directly by organisations that stand to loose financially by changes such as big oil and coal.

    May I ask Micheal why you are so passionate about the issue if its all a fraud? Whats in it for you? have you something to loose from action on climate change?

    I am really glad you bothered to have a look Glenn, that really makes you stand out from the crowd. The Skeptics handbook is an introductory guide to the issues designed to be easily digestible. For more detailed information I suggest you read the research papers at http://www.scienceandpublicpolicy.org/ and the variety of articles on all facets of the issues at http://www.climatedepot.com/ or http://climateaudit.org/ .

    I have had a look around on Google to find out exactly how many scientists there are in the world…we obviously need to be precise, so we are looking for 51% to be a majority… I think this will be difficult to accurately ascertain…but here are 31000 in the US alone http://www.oism.org/pproject/ … that says to me that there certainly isn’t the oft made lie that there is consensus. Researching Climategate will yield fabulous insights into this facet of the issue.

    Ah, what luck, I was looking for a something to refute the good ‘ole coal and oil money funds the Skeptic movement and found this http://blogs.news.com.au/heraldsun/andrewbolt/index.php/heraldsun/comments/rudds_4000_scientists_turn_to_just_dozens#71697 …um….31000 vs. Dozens… we are claiming the majority.

    You are 100% correct though…follow the money, Que Bono, who benefits?

    Why am I so passionate? Thanks for asking. I have been part of the global truth movement for 7 years and truly understand the implications of this crime.

    With so many problems facing the world today including real environmental problems such as open air pollination of GMO crops, cross species genetic engineering, toxic chemicals in our food, water, and personal products, depleted uranium being fired and released into the air INCLUDING IN AUSTRALIA!!!!! DIDN’T WE LEARN FROM MARALINGA?????? among many others, we simply do not have the time or resources to pay criminals trillions for a fraudulent tax on the gas we breathe out and the trees breathe in to live.

  7. Crazy times we live in, hey?

  8. I do thank you Micheal for helping us with Climate Redesign. You are making it clear that a major area of our focus should be to communicate the facts more clearly and to focus on paid marketers attempts to distort the science and consensus with misinformation. Could you let me know who you are working for to assist us further in developing a strategy to counter paid PR

    Your feedback and comments are greatly appreciated.

    Now if you were serious about a balanced debate on the facts you would have read sites like this and stopped pushing fraudulent marketing spin a long time ago.

    http://www.grist.org/article/series/skeptics/

    http://www.skepticalscience.com/

    And quoting Andrew Bolt? Now that lends credibility to your argument. It really does show the depth of your research and understanding of these issues

    And if you were serious about the environmental issues you described you would not be wasting your time promoting false science on this issue and acutaly campaining to create change in context to the issues your describe.

    I think this debate is a great example of how the Big polluters are using PR companies to pay people to post their agenda throughout he internet. You responded to this article before i even knew it was published. As “design” is not your profession or passion, how could that be?

    Well the PR companies are monitoring keywords… this post came up on their filters and off to work Micheal goes…

    And for the readers out there, here is another recent example of Paid Sceptic PR (read the comments):
    http://the-riotact.com/?p=10315

    It is a shame our government is not prosecuting these PR companies and their fraud.

  9. Michael

    No problem Glenn, Always happy to make a contribution, particularly when the issue at hand is so important.

    I represent myself, as an independent part of the exponentially growing global truth movement. I own a web development company that has been published in Desktop so we get Desktop communications, not sure where it came from, my business partner forwarded the link to the blog post as he knew I like to do my best to educate people on this critical issue.

    Yeah, Andrew Bolt and the Herald Sun, I have zero respect for the Herald Sun and previously for Andrew Bolt, but his work on exposing Climategate has been exceptional and when the AGW facade comes crashing down he will have been part of the solution whereby others will be seen to have been part of the problem.

    I had a bit of a look at the websites you have put forward; they are childish and use the most basic of deception techniques.

    They would if they could, the reason the government is not prosecuting PR companies is because they are not involved. I would welcome it going to court, we need to get all of the facts into the open, all we want is the truth.

    The truth movement and the AGW Skeptic movement is not government or corporate funded, it is genuine grass roots as concerned citizens recognise the danger of extreme corruption and the scale of the impact this crime will have on all of us and future generations.

    The reality is that Climategate was a miracle, it provided proof of all the suspicions of fraud that have been held for over a decade.

    Altering data, destroying data, failure to comply with court orders to release data, maligning scientists, manipulating the peer review process, fraudulent computer models, conspiring to mislead are just some of the crimes uncovered by Climategate.

    The people are waking up, the big money power and their world government plans are on the ropes, I am aware they are discussing laws here and in the UK and US to restrict freedom of speech on the internet over this and other freedom issues, the criminals are running scared, now is the time for the big push for the truth, why we still can.

    My respect and admiration to all of those out there who are doing a great job to expose this hoax, here is something to make you smile,

  10. “I had a bit of a look at the websites you have put forward; they are childish and use the most basic of deception techniques.”

    ahem… you mean they use peer reviewed science instead of pictures of hilter and bloodied knives…

    they are clearly more childish than the very professional: http://www.climatedepot.com/

    a fun as the youtube maybe they have the missed the point. Temperatures have risen the past decade… unless you don’t believe in mainsteam science.

    you really need to look at those sites i sent in more detail…. the reason we have skeptics is because they either “had a bit of a look at the science” (rather than indepth analysis) or they are paid.

  11. “AGW Skeptic movement is not government or corporate funded”

    ha ha ha

    yeah right

  12. Michael

    No I don’t believe the lies pushed by the main stream media and big money, my understanding is that the temperatures have declined, and this fact was covered up by the University of East Anglia as part of the Climategate scandal…hence hide the decline….nice tune though…can you admit that?

    Peer review, what a joke, refer to Climategate and the emails between parties conspiring to manipulate the peer review process, there is no science, it has been made up, data falsified and deliberately mis-interpreted, maybe you should have a look into that.

    If AGW Skeptics are getting paid…..where’s my money??????????????

    It must really grate on you that it is a genuine grass roots movement and we arnt buying your BS, all the more so because that means it is unstoppable!

    Thanks for the enlightening debate, I think visitors to this page will get a good view of both sides, do the research people…form your own opinion, don’t believe the hype!

    As for this Climate Redesign propaganda campaign… pushing lies, fabrications, perpetuating fraud and criminality for the enslavement of humanity, shame on you…shame.

  13. “criminality for the enslavement of humanity” … mmm we forgot to add that to our goals… thanks for reminding me.

    again your posts lack any evidence, or references to your outlandish claims….

    and the climategate thing… as your argument lacks any science or facts you resort to blowing one minor incident into a massive conspiracy and global fraud…

    again read some facts…
    http://www.skepticalscience.com/Climategate-CRU-emails-hacked.htm

    “It must really grate on you that it is a genuine grass roots movement ”

    you still have not said “whats in this for you”. Until then i believe you are paid PR

  14. Michael

    I am an extremely concerned citizen and receive no payments from anyone for my views or actions on this issue or any other social justice issue.

    I had a brief look at your Climategate link, there was one comment that appeared correct, “skeptics will call the investigation a whitewash”, well, yep, glad we could agree on something.

    Climategate showed the top 3 climate universities in Europe, America and England, colluding with each other to lie, pre-meditatively hiding the decline in temperatures over the last decade, manipulating temperature data, disobeying Freedom of Information Request orders to release data, deleting data and conspiring to limit the publication of opposing views in scientific journals and publications, there was also the release notes for their climate model software which explained how to rig the results. Someone was a hero for obtaining and releasing the information and the fraudsters got caught red handed!

    You didn’t respond to the link I sent you to the petition signed by 31000 scientists who agree that “There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gasses is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate. “

    31000 in America alone vs. the dozens of scientists who signed the IPCC report, that’s a big difference even for the number manipulators of the AGW fraudsters, the majority agree, there is census, lies always fall apart!

    All those scientists sacked, silenced and ridiculed by the manipulation of the Climategate scientists are angry men and are working furiously on their reports, more are going to appear every day!

    The people are waking up, I see it every day and we will redouble our efforts to bring all of the facts into the open so the truth will prevail and we can bring any wrong doers to justice.

    You know what the great news is, there is a Climategate 2 brewing, I think it is just weeks away : ))))))))))

    Stay tuned….

  15. Come along to the launch of Climate ReDesign, to share ideas, meet people, drink on a Tuesday night – bring your laptop and open-mind…

    We will be officially launching the project and tide of ideas and people which will climax with the main event on the 17th of July at Donkey Wheel House and an exhibition. (So put that in your diary too. We have some great prizes up for grabs including a keg of sustainable craft beer.)

    Free event, 630pm @ The Order of Melbourne, 401 Swanston St.
