'Kirstein also believes that climate scientists are irresponsibly using climate science to spread fear and panic among the population, and says that Potsdam Institute Director Hans-Joachim Schellnhuber “ought to be happy he does not reside in Switzerland” because there falsely spreading fear among the public is punishable with up to 3 years in prison.'

Schools' Low Carbon Day gone not with a bang but a whimper

Good news! The mysterious website pushing Schools' Low Carbon Day has self-destructed.

No pictures. No stories from successful events. No quotes from enlightened children.

Only this (my italics):

'Low Carbon Day has now happened!

Thank you for taking part.

We don't have the resources to continue the site anymore but please email info@cooltheworld.com if you need anything.'

See: http://www.lowcarbonday.com/

Perhaps someone made some screen captures, or can dig the old pages out of a web archive somewhere?

I reproduced their foundation 'thinking' here: http://climatelessons.blogspot.com/2010/06/schools-low-carbon-day-concerned.html

I shall continue with my promised Fisking of these sorry sentences, on the grounds that similarly shallow thinking may be being used elsewhere to justify who knows what harmful nonsense.

GOT is where Ii manged to dig out the info that lead to the exposure of the perpertators of this fine example of middle class do-gooding so thanks for the link.


I do hope you aren't going to lead these 'pretending to be a fake charity' people of the hook?

I suspect that now that 'the game is up' and thatthey have been 'sussed' so to speak, the Charles' have realised that it is just not worth the attention and adverse (for their business) publicity they have received (GOT is quiet a popular forum). If so, I think that's a very decision on their part.

I'm glad you liked the info, I was responsible for much of it, including the FOI requests noted in one of Johns earlier posts. Maybe the many, and varied enquiries going on at the same time helped scare them off?

I note that UKIP have also waded in, denouncing them as "Dangerous Propaganda"
