There was worse to come. Halfway through the World Bank summit, a London think-tank published a report in which the bank’s former head of research suggested the entire institution be shut down. The document, distributed at the meeting, was produced by the Global Warming Policy Foundation with examples of how, in their view, the poor are losing out. Titled, “The Anti-Development Bank,” the paper was authored by economist Rupert Darwall, one-time advisor to the UK treasury. But it wasn’t the text that stung so much as some of the quotes. —The Zimbabwean, 19 October 2017
Climate alarmism is a gigantic fraud: it only survives by suppressing dissent and by spending tens of billions of dollars of public money every year on pseudo-scientific propaganda.
Climate pseudo-science is wrong on physics, biology, meteorology, mathematics, computer sciences, and almost everything else. And even if the “climate science” were perfectly correct, climate alarmism politics would still be a tyranny and betrayal.
Scientists, identified as “conservation scientists” who presumably oppose human greenhouse gas emissions, have looked into their own lifestyles, as well as the lifestyles of other “conservation scientists,” and found that they are preaching one thing while practicing another.
“Most” of these scientists, the British Telegraph reports, “have a carbon footprint which is virtually no different to anyone else.” Those are the findings of a new study from Cambridge University published by researchers who were “were keen to find out whether being fully informed about global warming, plastic in the ocean or the environmental impact of eating meat, triggers more ethical behavior.”
We’re three weeks out from Virginia’s gubernatorial race and it’s been mostly relegated to the backburner thanks to the endless news that emanates from the Trump White House. It’s an off-year election, but it’s in D.C.’s backyard.
The state has increasingly become more bluish since the Bush years, albeit the state legislature is Republican. The House of Delegates, the lower chamber, is reliably Republican where they hold a supermajority.
A report that the Trump administration set the allowable level of nuclear radiation 10 times higher than the drinking water standard during the Obama years sent shockwaves through the media, but the report isn’t quite accurate.
Bloomberg reported on a recently-released FAQ document that allegedly set radiation standards at a level many times higher than what the Obama administration recommended for drinking water in the event of a nuclear disaster.
A Minnesota judge will allow four anti-pipeline activists who damaged an oil pipeline to present evidence supposedly showing the threat of climate change justified their actions.
Emily Johnston and Annette Klapstein admit they coordinated with Climate Direct Action activists to shut down five oil pipelines that carry tar sands crude from Canada to the U.S. The two activists now have the opportunity to argue the immediate gravity of climate change justified their actions.
The Department of Energy (DOE) is pouring $26 million into carbon capture technology to cut emissions from America’s coal and natural gas plants, the agency announced Tuesday.
The funds will go toward projects in the DOE’s Carbon Capture Program “to develop the next generation of advanced CO2 capture concepts” under the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL), according to the NETL website.
As the Trump administration mulls cuts to the federal mandate known as the Renewable Fuel Standard, Congress’s most vocal biofuels champions are urging the government to change course and instead ramp up support for ethanol.
Sen. Charles Grassley, Iowa Republican and perhaps Congress’s top ethanol backer, and other lawmakers met Tuesday afternoon with Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt on Capitol Hill.
CCD Editor’s Note: I’m running this piece because I just came across the most ignorant statement by a climate expert who said Trump’s handling of Puerto Rico was disastrous. This same climate expert has been the object of ridicule and scorn, so it was a bit shocking to see him in the driver’s seat.
Contrary to popular belief, President Trump did not drop the ball in Puerto Rico. Bloomberg did an extensive interview with retired Navy Captain Jerry Hendrix, who is now with the Center for a New American Security, who said there were anticipatory steps that were taken which are not being recognized.
First, at Twitter here, Swiss high-profile meteorologist Jörg Kachelmann presented a video on how he thinks German public television failed to adequately warn the public of North Sea storm Xavier barreled through northern Germany on October 5.
Did you happen to catch CNN’s latest smear?
Anderson Cooper’s show recently featured a “two-part exclusive” that claims Donald Trump’s EPA director had conspired with the CEO of a mining company to “withdraw environmental restrictions” so the company could dig “the largest open pit mine in the world in an extremely sensitive watershed in wild Alaska.”
