“Pride of Britain” Nominee Under Suspicion of Fraud

Samara Levy is a British woman who runs a charity called “Samara’s Aid Appeal”. She has a very active website as well as a Facebook page. She is a registered UK Charity, which claims to send supplies and medical units to Syria. She has an extensive network of donor-volunteers across UK, and is networking with many churches of all denominations. However, the claims she makes are seemingly not verifiable, and in direct contradiction with the facts on the ground in Syria.

Samara Levy claims she never uses Turkey as a transit point into Syria:

Samara’s Aid Appeal, December 16, 2018: NO JANUARY AID APPEAL. I’m so sorry to say that we won’t be running an appeal for clothes, shoes, blankets and other aid items in January as we had hoped. This is because of a new restriction that has been put in place in Syria this week, and we cannot guarantee that we will be able enter any containers into the country. It is not linked to the recent news about Bab Al Hawa crossing as we have never used any of the land borders from Turkey.

The international border between Syria and Turkey is officially closed. There is no trade, or transit between the two countries, outside of the free movement of armed fighters, weapons and the various supplies used to support the myriad of armed groups in Syria, all who are actively fighting the Syrian Arab Republic. The only movement of people or things between Syria and Turkey is defined as “international smuggling”.

The frontier with Turkey is still closed into Syrian government-held areas, and open only into territory controlled by rebels.”

Samara Levy posts many photos of herself, and others who are loading aid in UK into a truck to be sent to aid the Syrian people who are victims of the war on terrorism. The same truck, with Samara and others standing during the loading process are on her pages, as well as websites which are supporting Samara’s charity.

In the photo, the right side door is open, and the left side door is closed and you can clearly see in English lettering, the website of the trucking firm, and Aleppo is stated, along with telephone numbers. However, when you investigate the website, www.besirbaran.com , you find it no longer works, but when you investigate the name Besir Baran, you find he has a facebook page which identifies him as “Syrian Turk”, and that he is no longer in Aleppo, having left there in 2012, but now in Mersin, Turkey. This means, Mr. Baran and his truck have not been working inside Aleppo, or legally inside Syria, since prior to 2012. This proves Samara could never have used his trucking firm to legally deliver anything inside Syria.

When you investigate this truck owner, you find he now is networking with a company named MARTUR located in Mersin, Turkey. Using his website, we find his own photo of the exact same back door of the truck Samara Levy uses to transport aid to Syria. The right door is clearly marked Mersin, Turkey and several phone numbers, and the MARTUR name, which corresponds exactly with the website, and the left door is the exact copy of the door which Samara is standing behind in the UK. This same trucking firm is shown in numerous photos of Samara and her volunteers in UK during the loading process. The Mersin, Turkey labeled door markings are never revealed; only the Aleppo, Syria door is visible.

By using a trucking company located in Turkey, Samara Levy is found to have lied when she states she never uses any Turkish ports of entry. The only legal way to ship aid into Syria would be to load a container on a ship in UK, then that ship would sail to Latakia, Syria and off-load the cargo, and after the container was released from the port, it would be placed on a Syrian truck and delivered to any destination inside Syria. Using a Turkish truck and going a land route from UK to Syria means the aid cargo is going to the terrorist groups, or their families, or to civilians who are trapped inside terrorist occupied territory inside Syria, such as Idlib. Another possibility would be the aid is going to Syrian refugees living in Turkey.

While helping poor Syrians who have suffered almost 8 years would seem important, the fact remains that Samara Levy does not claim to be aiding refugees in Turkey: she claims to be inside Syria legally and helping Syrians who live in liberated areas under the control of the Syrian government. Samara Levy is standing with a Truck with Turkish license plates in an article which was highlighting her charity. It is completely impossible for any truck with Turkish license plates to enter Syria.

Besides all the claims that she is sending trucks and containers to Syria, Samara Levy also claims to a vast network of medical centers which she has either sent to Syria, or which she has founded and is supporting in Syria. Samara Levy claims to have opened Al Rahmie Hospital in Deir Ez Zor. Furthermore, she claims this hospital has a security camera which she monitors from the UK, so she can control all aspects of the operation of this hospital.

Samara’s Aid Appeal, July 7, 2018 : “This is the waiting area at our hospital in Syria, Al Rahmie. When it is busy like this, people have to wait outside too. I took this picture from our security camera this morning which enables us to fully monitor our hospital 24/7, even from the UK.”

However, that claim proves false, when we look at the Syrian state media’s own video showing the opening of Al Rahmie Hospital in Deir Ez Zor on April 16, 2018, in which the Mayor and Chief of Police attended, and is described as a charity hospital under the operation of Dr. Skandar Deeb. No mention of Samara Levy, any UK charity, or any foreign donors.

Samara Levy claims she has sent numerous “meditainers” to Syria, which are described as shipping containers which have been converted into a surgical, or exam room. She uses a specific photo of the “meditainer”, labeled as “LEMUEL MOBILE OPERATING ROOM”; however, when you do a google.com search on the photo itself, you find that exact photo belongs to a firm in Indonesia which is in the business of converting shipping containers into various other uses. It would appear that Samara Levy simply borrowed the photo, and claimed it as her own. Queries among the medical community in Syria were met with incredible surprise, as they had never heard of any shipping containers used as medical units in Syria.

Samara Levy made a video about Al Hayat Hospital in Aleppo, which she claims to have opened and is supporting.

We opened Al Hayat hospital on 1st May May 2017. A former maternity and obstetric hospital that had closed because of lack of resources and funding. We reopened it as a hospital providing emergency medical care and retain some of the staff specialising in obstetrics.”

There is a hospital in Aleppo by the name of Al Hayat, and it is a very old hospital, and was totally destroyed by a car bomb in 2012, and has never been rebuilt and is not functioning. This was confirmed by officials in Aleppo, as well as the residents who live in the area today.

A British woman, a westerner, traveling to Syria during the war is not unheard of. Many delegations, conferences and visitors have gone to Syria in search of the truth about the conflict, and offering support to the Syrian people in their defense from an international attack on the Syrian government and the unarmed civilian population which have been raped, maimed, kidnapped, made homeless, and killed all in the name of a revolution supported by US-UK-NATO war machine. It is therefore surprising to find a woman nominated for the “Pride of Britain” who claims to have never helped or aided the armed groups, who have been supported by the UK government, but instead she claims to have only helped those within the areas under the Syrian government control, who are not recognized by the UK government.

Samara Levy claims to have founded many hospitals and medical units across Syria, but she will not name the locations. She uses a great deal of subterfuge in masking all the locations, and leads you to believe this is for the sake of security. If she can’t tell you where the hospital is located, then how can Syrians make use of these free services? If everything is shrouded in a cloak of mystery, there could be something to hide. Furthermore, she never names the various doctors she is working with, even though you find doctors across Syria who are named daily in the media.

Doctors in Syria who are involved in a charity saving lives, and helping the poor to have free medical care, are proud to have their name mentioned. Do the doctors Samara Levy alludes to exist, or are they working in areas supported by the UK government?

Samara Levy and her charity are now under the microscope, facing serious questions, with no reply to communication sent to her as early as January 11, 2018. Today, she was contacted by a person who is personally known to her in the UK, and when faced with these same questions, she refused to offer any facts to defend herself.

The internationally acclaimed humanitarian group known as “The White Helmets” was proven to be a fraud in Syria. After years of investigation and documentation, the UK journalist and activist Vanessa Beeley was able to expose the group as a fraud. Samara Levy made a video in which she appeals for donations, and she clearly includes the White Helmets and she portrays them as medical heroes in Syria.

If Samara Levy and her charity are finally revealed to be lying and misrepresenting their work in Syria, it will be yet another revelation of fraud by a group making money off the suffering of the Syrian people. We can’t forget the haunting photo of the little boy named Omran, the bushy-headed boy who was sitting in the back of an ambulance, with blood on his face. The investigative journalist and activist Eva Bartlett of Canada tracked down the little boy and his father, and interviewed them. Their testimony of the events proved that the child was used by “The White Helmets” as a “prop” in their fraud, which has resulted in humanitarian awards and millions of dollars in donations to them based on fraudulent misrepresentation.

    If there is one thing a Fascist fears more than a Vampire the silver bullet, it has to be the truth. Truth is the antidote to Fascism. The reason why the British regime does everything to suppress it by all means necessary. And since the British regime is joint entirely to the US regime, they operate by the same Fascist principles.

    In order to reign in Fascism and its willful stooges like the fake person delivering ‘aid’ to whatever pockets need to be filled – but to those in real need – an uncorrupted and neutral justice system is needed. The notions stands that there can be no peace without justice. Let’s see what the justice system under the British regime will do against these fake humanitarians. No one should hold their breath, though.

    Well she’s obviously a MI6 asset or agent and many charities aren’t charities at all but NGO’s used to funnel weapons and fighters into nations and drugs and trafficked women and children

    “Pride of Britain Nominee”….Tells you all you need to know about this scammer. Benevolent Britain caring for all those in Syria whose wellbeing we have assisted in consigning them to lives of continuous poverty, increasing hardship and death. We can do no wrong ! We are the humanitarian crusaders of the Middle East ! So come on now, stand up and sing Land of Hope and Glory ! Let us rejoice in our “Pride of Britain” and be grateful that we have such wonderfully kind and caring individuals in our ranks !………..now pass me the sick bag please.

  4. UreKismet says

    I see the scam artist used the ample skirts of organised superstition to hide behind as she thrust out her greedy paw.
    Sad to say these credulous fools never learn that their willingness to believe patent nonsense makes them an obvious target for all types of scammers. Usually it’s a slimeball in a three piece suit selling ‘amazing investment opportunities’ to members of the local bible study group. But creative prejudice is also known to be effective among the judgemental & fixed thinking of the cultishly inclined.
    Next time perhaps enough time and consequent convenient amnesia will have passed for a sharp operator to raise funds for the oppression of school girls via another ‘silver ring thing’, or maybe it will be an institute to ‘cure’ gays with electric shocks that is deemed timely to return to the fold. Both of those are nearly up there with stealing in the name of the blown to pieces, in terms of sociopathy.

    No more needs be said since organised superstition isn’t just the last bastion of the scoundrel, the perps rarely get prosecuted because the self appointed shepherds of these cults, small & huge, know very well which side their bread is buttered and so deliver dingbats, aka ‘the congregation’ up to conservative pols every election, getting them to vote against their own best interest in the name of some invisible sky pilot or another.

    • mark says

      Very true. A lot of these religious scammers are so blatant it’s quite funny, people with solid gold toilet seats and solid gold dog kennels, launching “crusades” to raise money to buy private jets and pay for their girlfriends’ abortions. One ploy they use is to send out $1 bills at random, telling people to put it in their bible overnight as “seed money” for good luck, and to send back $50 to them. “Then the Lord will return this to you many times over.”

      Of course Jesus himself warned against these con artists, and a lot of religious people are quite genuine.

      There is one thing a lot of people don’t realise about charities in the UK. You get approached by chuggers in the street trying to sign you up for £10 a month or £20 a month or whatever. If the chugger signs you up, he gets the first 2 years’ worth of £10 a month. So he gets the first 24 months, £240, and only after that does any of your money go to the actual charity. This is standard and applies to all the major charities. Their reasoning is that people are lazy and generally let the donation run for 5 years before they cancel it. I’ve spoken to a few chuggers at some length. They do it to earn money, not to support some cause out of conviction. It is often a student job. One chugger approached me with his sales pitch and I asked him for some literature on the charity. He was insistent I had to sign the direct debit there and then, or he wouldn’t get anything.

      I can’t remember the exact figure but I think there are 3-4 times more professional charity workers than there are personnel in the army/ navy/ air force combined. That doesn’t include all the splendid little old ladies working a couple of days a week in charity shops for nothing. It is all generally one big scam, with tens of billions involved. The Red Cross were given $500 million to provide housing after the Haiti Earthquake and the money just disappeared with nothing to show for it. Oxfam was running sex parties forcing destitute kids to have sex with animals. Save The Children had a big shindig to give Tony Blair a “Humanitarian of the Year” award. The Princes, Harry and Wills, set up a charity for aids orphans in Africa, and quickly raised £2 million for it with their chums at the Berkshire Hunt and elsewhere. The charity commissioners found that all but £7,000 of the 2 million had gone on administration. All the orphans got was the £7,000.

    Isnt …. LEVY — a JEWISH Surname ? Above described obvious FRAUD gets another Dimension by this FACT

    • Antonym says

      That’s the whole idea!
      She’s from that small club of Semites that “rule the universe”. Makes you forget about the zillion other Semites from “the religion of peace” and that this is what it is all about.

    • Jimbo says

      Hey, asshole. I have a Jewish surname and I am Jewish. I am also a loyal reader of this blog. Your bigoted remark is offensive and stupid. No idea how many other Jews or simply decent other readers there are here but I hope you will join me in calling out this asshole and those who liked his remark.

      • John says

        Tough tit we can’t help it when we spot Jewish perfidity everywhere we look. When I see American news every person who appears pretty much especially the ones pushing the msm narrative all appear to be Jewish be married to a Jew or be a Christian Zionists. You may be a honourable Jew and that’s fine but when the elite is made up primarily of Jews then yeah we will be called anti Semites by people desperately to hide reality and i am in no way concerned about being labelled an anti Semite I don’t care anymore. I spent decades doing the “not all Jews” schtick and it was pointless. Fuck the Jews

        • mark says

          Maybe we should have a category of “righteous Jews” for people like Norman Finkelstein and Max Blumenthal and Gilad Atzmon who have risen above Talmudic racism and tribalism and called out Zionist atrocities and evil for what they are, often at high cost to themselves.

          Zionism is present day Nazism. There is no difference. Germans have been required to actively disown and reject Nazism in view of all the incredible suffering it caused. Jews who do not wish to be tarred with the brush of Zionism need to do the same. Although we need to appreciate the Zionist gangsterism they will experience in doing so.

          This may seem unfair. Perhaps it is. The 4 million who have died from Zionist incited wars in the Middle East did not benefit from a great deal of fairness either. Or the millions of Venezuelans currently being starved and impoverished thanks to the machinations of ardent Zionists like Abrams, Mnuchin, Bolton, Pompeo, Trump – not all of whom are Jews of course.

          I spent decades doing the “not all Jews” schtick and it was pointless.

          The question that can never even be asked, much less credibly answered, among the righteous sabbat goyim, is what percentage of the self-identified Chosen People may be numbered among “not all Jews”. The reason this question must remain un-kosher, now and forever, is that everybody knows, at least subconsciously, that if they allowed themselves to think about it, the answer that would come to mind is “less than five percent, and probably a lot less”. Having once committed this thoughtcrime, they would then have to renounce the benefits and privileges of sabbat-goyism, or admit to themselves their own self-serving hypocrisy. But this unpleasant choice can be completely avoided, simply by continuing to exercise proper Reality Control, while denouncing those who fail to do so, as “anti-semites”.

          “A few square miles of Judea.”

        The point is, what if she’s a ‘sayan’ working to overthrow the Syrian government for the benefit Israel?

  6. Jen says

    Here is the Samara’s Aid Appeal link where Samara Levy claims the charity opened Al Hayat Hospital:

    We opened Al Hayat hospital on 1st May 2017. A former maternity and obstetric hospital that had closed because of lack of resources and funding. We reopened it as a hospital providing emergency medical and surgical care retaining some of the focus on obstetrics.

    There are an estimated 1.5 million people living around this area, and while there are other medical services around this city, the poorest and most vulnerable still struggle to access life-saving medical care, especially if they have no money to pay for their care. Al Hayat works on a not for profit basis and treats the poorest and most vulnerable free of charge.

    We are raising support for our medical teams and are keen to ask people to support us with standing orders on a monthly basis as this is the most secure way for us to run our medical projects. Each month there are overheads to cover for each medical team including supplies and medications for the hospitals, salaries for the doctors and nurses, fuel for the generators and ambulances, water for the hospitals.

    Every penny donated to this medical appeal goes directly to our medical projects in Syria as our UK team are all volunteers and we aim to eliminate the overheads that most charities in the UK would have.

    Not surprisingly the post aids a disclaimer that the hospital’s real name was not disclosed, supposedly to protect the people and the facilities in the hospital. The post doesn’t even indicate which city or region where the estimated 1.5 million people live: they could all be living packed like sardines in a few buildings or spread out over a huge semi-rural area around the hospital, for all we know.

    Perusing around the rest of the website, I find stories of similar vagueness: people are interviewed or described but their names (real or invented) are never revealed.

    Oh and if you want some comedy, here is the section on … Due Diligence & Safeguarding.

    Syria is undoubtedly one of the most complex war zones in the world. Providing medical and humanitarian aid in such a challenging environment comes with great responsibilities, and our focus is on reaching the most vulnerable whilst ensuring that we do not compromise on following all the necessary processes that should be used to ensure that our work in Syria is properly planned, supervised, documented and regulated, and there are no avoidable opportunities for our aid to be lost or abused in any way.

    Samara regularly visits our projects in Syria and is in daily contact with our teams on the ground. We work within the established legal infrastructure of each of the countries we are working in which is essential in ensuring that we are not left vulnerable to the multitude of armed groups that are operating in Syria in the current conflict. We have all the correct licences in place both for what we are doing in the UK in relation to our work in Syria, as well as ensuring that our teams on the ground all have the correct registrations and authorisations needed to access many challenging areas and provide a credible service on the ground.

    We have a safeguarding policy in place for our teams distributing aid, and have been working to high standards in relation to distributing aid since we established these teams on the ground in Syria. The distributions that our teams carry out are done by 50% female teams meaning that there will always be at least one woman working with every man in our aid distributions. We have a number of other processes in place relating to handling aid, managing access to the warehouses in Syria as well as the way our distributions are planned and structured. This ensures that there are no opportunities for our aid to be abused.

    Eh … having teams that are 1:1 gender balanced helps to prevent aid from falling into the wrong hands?

      I’ve just been reading her site and facebook page.

      From this, you really could not possibly believe from what she says, the trips to Syria which may be at personal risk and all the well wishers and interactions and general MO (has a young family, used to be a nurse) that this is a scam. Either the author has got this wrong (I think he is reputable from other articles he’s published, so seems unlikely) or this woman is a huge scam artist and deceiver.

      If the stuff in the article is right, I think she’s in a lot of bother. Not just with any authorities who might pursue her, but her friends, churches and supporters in the UK. It will be interesting to watch this story unfold.

        Yes, but will it get any exposure outside OG and one or two other sites?

    Thank you to Off-Guardian. I have suffered here in Syria 8 years. I lost my home and neighbors and relatives. I feel so strongly that people who profit from war are war criminals. Samara Levy is a criminal against the British donors and the Syrian people.

  10. Emily Durron says

    Photo at the very top of the article, the person herself is posing in front of a truck registered in Turkey. That’s the TR on the registration plate.

    Case closed. You’ve done some nice detective work, but the answer was hidden in plain sight all along.

  11. Loverat says

    Well, we know of the shocking UK taxpayer funded support for Al Qaeda paid via the UK Government Too well documented to deny and for me I’m glad of my forthcoming redundancy from the day job which means I’ll no longer be funding international terrorism and FCO treason through my taxes – at least for a while..

    But of course individuals and ‘chariy groups’ on the ground purporting to be helping the people of Syria are also likely to be fleecing the Syrian people, funding terrorist groups and pocketing money for themselves.

    This is not only one of the most wicked things a person can do but this behaviour discourages people from donating to genuine charities. The result – the most needy in the world suffering more.

    The above is a little sketchy perhaps in detail and hard proof but I think the individual concerned needs to urgently address the concerns one by one. If she makes no attempt to do so, people will draw their own conclusions.

    • mark says

      Probably just a shyster out for the money. Could be a Walter Mitty element too. But it may be another Syrian Observatory for Human Rights set up, a bogus MI6/ FCO group. UK state funding for the cannibal throat slitters is already well over £3 billion, making Britain one of the leading state sponsors of terrorism.

      All the big groups fall into the same corrupt/ compromised/ politicised categories. Red Cross, Oxfam, Save The Children, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Medecins Sans Frontieres, these are all truly evil people.

      • Ken Kenn says

        Very true.

        The problem for all these NGO’s is that they are run by governments and the the ‘ Non ‘ part of Non Governmental Organisations is a lie.

        The worst part (as we know they lie to us ) is that innocent volunteers become victims of this charade.

        It is notable in the UK that many people starting out on political careers such as prospective MPs tread this NGO path. It is highly observable in the Labour Party and the Blairite candidates in the early 2000’s and today come from this milieu.

        They all create a nice salary too; David Milliband gets £25000 per year for his great work. I’ve no idea what his great work is though.

        Or Greenpeace, CCC, Friends of the “Earth” etc.
        The new Green religion pays off well (and charitable tax status!); people had to hold onto something after traditional Christianity was abandoned by most in the West. They got lured by a scientific con-sensus on “Climate Change” as a pull. Similar gloom and doom predicted as in the old Testament – a proven push. What more do you want? Scientology was too weird; Islam too misogynistic.

        • vexarb says

          @Antonym: “Friends of the “Earth” …. pays off well.”

          Friends of “Israel” likewise pays off well.

        • @Antonym, you’re spot on.

          Climatologist Dr. Tim Ball reveals the whole warming/climate fraud in his 2016 book: Human Caused Global Warming, The Biggest Deception In History.

          Only 121 pages, Dr. Tim exposes the Bankster Rockefellers funding the lies & their multi-billionaire cronies, such as George Soros, & Maurice Strong who set up the fraud factory UN IPCC.

          Their endgame is a world totalitarian govt & a vast depopulation & more.
          Dr. Tim names the Nazi false scientists pushing the doomster agenda, including John Holdren & Paul Ehrlich, the bug professor who’s never made a correct prediction his entire life.

          A must read.

            • Rhisiart Gwilym says

              Whatever chop-logic Tim Ball and his – minority – ilk may use, anyone like me who’s lived long enough KNOWS climate-shift is real, because we’ve OBSERVED it happening, in our lifetimes. Don’t try to tell me that the winters, or the summers, in Britain are anything like what they were in my childhood. Forget the gobbledegook rabid-idiot-and-useful-shill-generated ‘proofs’ of no climate shift. I’ll go with the evidence of my lying eyes and my lying common sense. And the evidence of an almost unanimous genuinely-trustable scientific community. Of course climate-shift is effing real, ffs! Considering what we’ve been doing with the vast fossil-hydrocarbon splurge into the atmosphere, and the destruction of global forests over recent centuries, how-t-f could it not be? Are the Greenland Ice Cap drill-cores deliberately lying to us? Are climate physics and biochemistry suddenly suspended because terror-stricken dream-world-dwelling double-thinkers want them to be? That’s fashionable ‘post-truth’ delusional thinking just now, but no more enduring than morning mist on a sunny day. Reality rolls over us impartially in any case, whatever temporarily-fashionable moonshine we may choose to believe – out of sheer funk. Best to face the dreadful reality steadfastly.

              • RG, you miss the point.

                Yes, the climate is always changing, “for about 4.5 billion years” as Buzz Aldrin said.

                We’ve just come out of ~500 years of cold: The Little Ice Age.
                ~1350 to ~1850 AD. The Thames river froze to a depth of three feet, crops failed & the Black Death plague wiped out millions.

                Way before man’s contributions of CO2, Carbon Dioxide became theoretically significant after ~ 1950 AD.

                Before that we had about 400 years of the Medieval Warm Period, when the 1086 AD Domesday book shows grapes growing as far North as Hadrian’s wall: warmer than now & prosperous.
                As were the preceeding Roman & Minoan warm periods.
                Nowt to do with man’s CO2.

                Yes, the vast majority of scientists are honest: over 30,000 of them got together, including over 9,000 PhDs to protest the warming/climate fraud: http://www.petitionproject.org

                To preserve the fake 97% consensus claim, there would need to be over a million scientists in favour of the fraud. Good luck finding them.

                The 97% fraud was concocted by Dr. Naomi Oreskes & John Cook, the cartoonist, as named on page 13 of Dr. Tim Ball’s great little book. The true consensus figure is 0.3%.

                The 97% claim is a fraud much used by our fake news MSM.

                If Dr. Tim were wrong about his claims, these clowns would have him in court in an instant.

              • The ice core evidence you cite proves that CO2 increases lag behind temperature increases on a lag of about 800 years + or – about 200 years:

                The Jo Nova link is explicit.

                So you have your doomsday “science” exactly ass-forward: CO2 increases are an effect of warming, not a cause.

                Some more inconvenient facts:

                1) CO2 is plant food & entirely beneficial: CO2 increases have been greening the planet for 30+ years. Go on youtube & put in search box: Matt Ridley on how fossil fuels are greeening the planet
                19 mins

                Matt Ridley is a science writer for The Times & author of The Rational Optimist, which I enjoyed.

                2) Following the man-made CO2 climate change cult requires believing that a cold area of our climate system, our atmosphere will warm a warmer area of our climate, the Earth, which daily receives ~1360 to 1370 watts per sq meter in heat from our Sun. Almost half a 3kw (3000 watts – 3 bar) electric fire. That’s more than a schoolboy howler, it’s a physical impossibility, a total nonsense.

                3) Over 95% of the greenhouse effect is produced by water (H2O) in the atmosphere, invisible as vapour or visible as clouds.
                The fraud factory UN IPCC ignores this.

                4) CO2 is about 4% of the greenhouse gases.
                The fraud factory UN IPCC concentrates solely on this.

                5) the man-made portion of the CO2 in our atmosphere is about 3.4%: warm tropical oceans produce ~57%, decaying winter vegetation produces huge amounts& animals alone breathe out 25 times man’s production of CO2.

                So yes, the climate is always changing, but no, man’s CO2 is not a climate driver.

                Dr. Tim’s little gem of a book contains lots of easy to understand diagrams to back up these facts, & also a list of further reading which includes Prof. Ian Plimer’s great book:
                Heaven and Earth, Global Warming: The Missing Science.
                500 pages, 2,000 plus refs’ to peer-reviewed papers etc..

                It might be nice for you to include some real science in your over-emotional but remarkably fact-free little rants.

              • RG, not all “scientists” are honest.

                Michael Mann attempted to wipe the Medieval Warm Period & the Little Ice Age, 900 years of recent history, out of existence.

                In order to make the late 20th century warming look exceptional.

                How Stalinist is that?

                The fraud factory UN IPCC were chief cheerleaders for this outrageous pack of lies, but were forced to belatedly ignore it by the gales of laughter from round the world.

                A complete expose of Mann’s hockey stick graph fraud:
                Also dealt with in Dr. Tim’s & Prof. Plimer’s books.

      By the way, on that note I’d suggest anyone wishing to donate to a truly great cause, they support Off Guardian. Or/and the above mentioned brave journalists who’ve exposed these rackets.

      You can be sure your money is being used for research, promote truth and tolerance. In a thoroughly corrupt world and with many charities under the control of dark forces I think we need to go back to basics. Fund and promote the truth first. Once the truth is out there, then and only then, we can think about donating to charities on the ground.

      On the reverse of your yearly UK tax return/notification I think there should be a breakdown of where your income tax goes. The money to the Foreign Office/Overseas Aid is probably where the terrorist /White Helmets/ Integrity Initiative bit goes.

      For the tax year ended 2017 my tax contributions included Defence, Overseas Aid and EU Budget. In the tax year 2019, I will be donating the total of these three via monthly arrangement to my favourite sites. It’s a good way of helping the cause and feeling good about yourself.

      • Off-Guardian have done some good stuff. But, look at this article: https://off-guardian.org/2018/10/22/review-unprecedented-crime/

        “Ninety-seven percent of scientists in relevant disciplines are telling us climate change is real, is man-made and is taking us all, meaning humanity and other advanced life forms, down a roller coaster of environmental catastrophe” Nope, the 97% claim is well-exposed clap-trap – when the science is with you hang on to the Argument from Authority. Analysis of the study that produced the 97% figure showed its data indicated a figure of about .3%

        “It locates the birth of a small and decidedly non-scientific cabal, of pretty much the most powerful vested interests on the planet – aka the fossil fuels industry and its financiers – and charts their success in casting doubt on that IPCC certainty” The “big oil funding climate denial” is nonsense. The Rockefellers, Soros, Gates, etc spend billions on buying up media, education, politicians, UN (always owned the UN). Where do you think the Rockefellers got their money from? How come “Big Oil” isn’t buying up politicians and universities in order to counter the climate scam? Is there a single rep from the oil industry who has exposed it?

        “counter the lies of denialist” . Counter the science and the scientists, is what he means.

        I wish you hadn’t got me looking …


  12. There will be no justice or peace anywhere in the world until Blair, Bush, Cheney and such scum are tried as the war criminals that they are.
