The fear mongering ‘science’ of modeling

Dutch broadcaster, the NOS warned this summer of record temperatures that had again been measured in Siberia. There were also more severe forest fires than last year. According to the state broadcaster, this has been shown by research results from Copernicus, the EU's climate change service.

    The phrase “climate change” was also mentioned in the headline of the article, and the featured image showed a map of Siberia with dangerous-looking red areas popping up everywhere.

    But there was nothing exceptional about this heat wave in Siberia at all. The warmest summer dates back to 1917, according to Paul Homewood. The temperatures at Verhoyansk were only half a degree higher than in 1988.

    In June it rose to 38 degrees in the Siberian town of Verkhoyansk. The NOS immediately sounded the alarm: “Highest temperature ever measured within the Arctic Circle,”  due to climate change. Homewood has however analyzed the average June temperature in Verkhoyansk from 1885 to 2020 and concluded that it was even warmer in 1912 than it is today.

    The NOS had likely only repeated the panic-sowing reports in the British media, including the BBC.

    The average summer temperature in Verkhoyansk is also fairly constant. And here, too, the record dates back to the early 20th century. The place had its warmest summer in 1917.

    Homewood also pointed out that the heat wave in Siberia had been the result of the jet stream: Warm air from the south flowed to the north. “It’s a natural and common phenomenon, and has nothing to do with a ‘warming Arctic’,” Homewood concluded.

    But these arguments based on “climate models” have been used to scare populations into accepting carbon taxes and emissions restrictions. So-called carbon allowances are increasingly gaining traction as a response to the alleged climate crisis, while actual information is censored.

    Restrictions could include quotas on heating, energy, travel, food and consumer goods. Consumers would then be forced to seek out sources of energy, fuel and goods to not waste their allowance which will eventually be linked to a QR pass and rationed by authorities.

    “Individuals account for about 45 per cent of the UK’s carbon emissions,” says Dr Tina Fawcett of Oxford University’s energy programme and a researcher who has spent almost 20 years studying this idea. “Personal budgets could be a relatively simple, straightforward tool for reducing that.”

    The same goes for tropical cyclones

    A study published in Science concluded that to date worldwide, “there has been no firm evidence of global trends of the frequency of tropical cyclones with maximum wind speed above the hurricane-force wind (64 knots) at landfall” based on data since 1982.

    But this did not stop various opportunists from creating computer models to claim the opposite while hiding their conflicting interests in producing panic-inducing “studies”. Hurricane expert Roger Pielke pointed out that when “observations of hurricane activity apparently don’t show the right trends” a study appears that “re-invents history by using modeled historical hurricane activity to find the right trends. Predictably, gross misinformation follows.” In reality, since 1945, the number of hurricanes that make landfall has declined by about a third.

    This did not stop the BBC from fraudulently claiming that this year was “the third most active for hurricanes”. The truth is that since 1851, there have been 50 other years with as many or more than the seven recorded this year in the Atlantic.

    In fact, 2021 was not even a remarkable year for major hurricanes. There have been 29 other years with as many or more. But climate scientists evidently rely on lucrative grants to further their careers.

    While it is true that this year has had the third highest count of storms (a category which includes weaker storms as well as hurricanes), this is due to changes in observation practices by satellite. In the past many storms crossed the oceans unobserved.

    Dr Neil Frank, former Director of the US National Hurricane Center from 1974 to 1987, noted that many named storms were actually winter storms, not tropical storms. He states that the first six tropical storms last year would not have been counted in his time.

    The NHC now names a storm simply based on wind speeds without measuring decreasing central pressure, typical of a tropical storm. “This often explains why named storms are often so short lasting now,” Homewood said.

    Modeling climate science as well as pandemics

    Neil Ferguson, Professor of Mathematical Biology, gets it wrong every time. In 2002, Ferguson predicted that, by 2080, up to 150 000 people could die from exposure to BSE (mad cow disease) but in the UK there have been only 177 deaths. In 2005, he predicted that up to 150 million people could be killed from bird flu. In the end, only 282 people died worldwide from the disease between 2003 and 2009. In 2009, a government estimate, based on Ferguson’s advice, calculated 65 000 British deaths. In the end, swine flu killed 457 people in the UK. He is still called an ‘expert‘ and ‘leading epidemiologist‘ and serves on the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE).

    The Covid-19 modeling used to justify lockdowns, shutting down the economy and leaving millions unemployed, proposed by Neil Ferguson in the UK, has since been thoroughly debunked – the dire outcome of his monumental error has however created havoc.

    Mathematical modeling is only as good as the data. His incompetence and insistence on doomsday outcomes, has earned him the title of a “publicity-seeking charlatan“. Hundreds of millions of people have had to suffer from from this fool’s erroneous “models”.

    The former chief scientist for the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Johan Giesecke, described Ferguson’s faulty computer model as “the most influential scientific paper” in memory and sadly, “one of the most wrong”. Elon Musk called Ferguson an “utter tool” who does “absurdly fake science“.

    The disgraced Ferguson created the infamous Imperial College model that warned authorities that without an immediate lockdown, the Coronavirus would cause 500 000 deaths in Britain and swamp the National Health Service.

    In February 2020, during the Covid-19 pandemic, using statistical models that considered data on the number of deaths and recoveries inside China, travelers outside China and in those affected that had returned home, Ferguson estimated that detected cases had significantly underestimated the actual spread of the disease in China.

    That month he stated that only 10 percent of cases were being detected in China. At the same time, it was noted that the number of available testing kits had come into question, and Ferguson upped his fear mongering stating that only one in three cases coming into the UK was being detected. He stated “that approximately two-thirds of cases in travelers from China have not yet been detected. It is highly likely that some of these undetected cases will have started chains of transmission within the countries they entered.”

    Sweden was even admonished for not following strict lockdowns, but the Swedish example is now hailed by all as a clear success and prompted Fraser Nelson, editor of Britain’s Spectator, to comment: “Imperial College’s model is wrong by an order of magnitude.”

    Ferguson’s “scientific” models turned out to be inaccurate rubbish, but because it has helped to spread fear and panic, all criticism of his modeling has been wiped from Google.

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties. Pictured from left to right: Mikael Jansson (Alternative for Sweden), Thierry Baudet (Forum for Democracy, Netherlands), László Toroczkai (Mi Hazánk, Hungary), Kostadin Kostadinov (Vazrazhdane, Bulgaria), and Josef Nerušil (Svoboda a přímá demokracie, Czech Republic).

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”. The picture is from a protest against covid restrictions in Amsterdam in January of last year. Photo: Wion

    Dutch FvD break through the media blockade

    What is happening in the Netherlands? It is often difficult to follow events in other countries, especially when distorted by system media. We give Forum for Democracy (FvD) the opportunity to speak out on the political situation in the Netherlands and the staunch resistance they face in trying to save the country.

    The Ursula von der Leyen Affair

    After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.

    Care prompts bishops to criticize transgender ideology

    The Catholic bishops of the Scandinavian countries presented an open five-page letter criticizing transgender ideology on March 21, just before Easter. The document primarily expresses care and advice and was read aloud in Catholic churches in Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark, and Iceland. Cardinal Anders Arborelius, Bishop of Stockholm, is one of the signatories of the document.
