"Nice pictures, but where's the results of that
survey you did the last two days ...
you promised you would have it out possibly
today or at the latest tomorrow, and here
you are showing us all your weather pictures!"
And well, you may ask ...
But, I just decided since I am doing it on
this blog, let's try and make it as interesting
as possible ... with a pretty picture ... problem
was I couldn't decide which one to use, so ...
well, you can see what I did ...
First, (well almost) , let me take the opportunity
to thank you all for being so generous and good
humored in partaking in this little survey,
which was largely in response the ad which
appeared in the Hutt News , February 17, 1015,
(see below) ...
I tried to phrase the question in a manner similar
to that which the GWRC used in the ad, without
altering its sense, and to avoid influencing
respondents as they completed the survey.
What did the people understand about the subject
and how would they react to this survey and the
GWRC's invitation to submit an opinion on
Climate Change as outlined in their
advertisement, of which this survey was drawing
attention to ... I was soon to find out ... as you will
see in the results below...
I thought it would be an interesting assignment,
giving me an insight into whether this was of
concern to the people in this region and what their
understanding of the GWRC's plan was based on ...
I thought, at this point, it would be useful to acquaint
you all with a little bit of my background, before
I proceed further, which should help you see and
appreciate just where I am coming from with my
interest in this subject:
I am not a Climate Scientist, or a mathematician
or a physicist ( although I do hold a tertiary
qualification in Botany and Geography!).
I was employed with the N.Z. Meteorological
Service as a Technician/Observer for some
25 years, having been fascinated by weather as
a kid of about 8 or 9 years of age, and was
set on becoming a "Weatherman" 8-D ... when
I left college ... which I eventually did ...
and so weather has always been by passion,
my work, my hobby ( home weather stations)
ever since I can remember ...
So, with all that in mind, I think am pretty much
up-to-date with the current situation regarding
both "weather' and "climate" to the point
where anything is passed off as science on an
unwary public, and is obviously not, I am not
hesitant in stepping forward and exposing the lie.
I was alerted back in June, 2014, when an article
appeared in the Stokes Valley Times, pushing the
same agenda, and actually organised a leaflet drop
campaign alerting people to this plan by the GWRC
with the help of three ladies (whose names I cannot
now recall) who between the three (possibly more)
of us managed to distribute over 100 leaflets all
around Wellington, encouraging people to make
submissions ( see following for details) ...
I found the results on their website the other day for
the first time, and they state that 85 people made
submissions, and only one person said it
( Climate Change ) was normal ... and that would
have been myself or at least several other ladies
who were quite strongly opposed to their plans
... what happened to their submissions???
On January 7, 2015, this appeared in the
Upper Hutt Leader, indicating that in spite of our
submissions back in June 2014, giving overwhelming
evidence that their plans were based on a lie based
on fiddled science, because we knew at the time
that there had been no global warming of earth's
atmosphere for 17 years and 3 months, and
counting, indicating they had totally ignored our
submissions based on credible science and were
obviously determined to plough on regardless ...
unfortunately, for them, and fortunately for us,
there is a growing number people who have
awoken to their scheming ... and are NOT prepared
to be silenced.
That's enough for now, except to mention that
after I have summarized the survey for you all,
( about time, I hear you say!) it is my intention
to submit my 'say' either in the form of a blog,
e-mail or something, exposing this fraud, with
damning evidence that they are about to waste
public funds on a lie, for that is what it truly is;
hopefully I will have completed that task by
at least the 10/12th March, 2015,
(they are asking for submissions by 10 April, 2015)
and giving, I hope, people a chance to check out
evidence presented on this blog, to help them make
an informed decision which they can then submit to
GWRC before April 10, 2015 !
