Did the Global Warming Hoax Die in Cancun?

December 17, 2010 by

By Alan Caruba If you want to know the core beliefs of those who gathered in Cancun, Mexico, for yet another Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) conference, you need look no further than the way one of its days began with a prayer to Ixchel, a Mayan Moon goddess. The global warmists are essentially […]

Cancun Couldn’t

December 14, 2010 by

0

By Andrew Bolt Ben Webster, The Times: The climate change conference in Cancún has ended with failure to set a target date for the reduction of carbon emissions. The Mexican hosts persuaded 192 out of 193 countries to accept the “Cancún agreement” by the simple trick of aiming for the lowest common denominator — the […]

By William R. Hawkins The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change ended its 16th year of negotiations without a treaty on Dec. 11. The UNFCCC had been meeting for two weeks at the resort city of Cancun, Mexico after a year of other meetings held at luxury venues around the world. The Cancun Agreement reached […]

Do You Believe in Magic … Climate Numbers?

By Paul Driessen Average annual global temperatures have risen a degree or two since the Little Ice Age ended some 150 years ago. Thank goodness. The LIA was not a particularly pleasant time. Prolonged winters, advancing glaciers, colder summers, more frequent storms and extended cloudiness reduced arable land, shortened growing seasons, rotted grain in wet […]

No abuse hides the fact: the warmist models cannot even predict our past

December 13, 2010 by

By Andrew Bolt Professor Demetris Koutsoyiannis of the National Technical University of Athens is co-author of a study which demonstrates that the climate models which predict global warming cannot even hindcast to describe the climate we’ve been having. He now responds to some of the more feral criticism from warmists on this blog: I wish […]

By Andrew Bolt In Australia, the Gillard Government is spending an astonishing $599 million of money on global warming projects overseas, some of which involve propping up the most expensive forms of electricity generation: JENNIFER MACEY: Fast Start Finance is designed to pay poor countries to build levees to protect against rising sea levels, grow […]

Just call them corrupt. It saves having to think

By Andrew Bolt David McKnight, an academic who was naturally once a writer for the Communist Party, has like so many others swapped his red flag for a green one. But he still has a tendency to see capitalist conspiracies, and to counter reason with group solidarity: David McKnight, a senior research fellow at the […]

Our Stealth Congress

December 10, 2010 by

1

By Alan Caruba We are living in an era in which our Congress and much of our government operates like a stealth bomber, destroying rights we assume to be protected by the U.S. Constitution and otherwise encumbering an ailing economy in ways known to make it worse. Take, for example, the House passage yesterday of […]

Ted Turner’s Craziest Scheme Yet: Cap and Trade…With Children

December 10, 2010 by

1

By Lachlan Markay Media mogul Ted Turner, who founded cable networks CNN and TBS, wants a global child-bearing “cap and trade” system to combat climate change. He has thought up a bizarre take on China’s one-child policy: set a strict one-child limit, and let poor people sell credits for children they don’t have! At the […]

Climate Conference Set to Crash and Burn?

December 10, 2010 by

By Roger Helmer MEP, a Guest Contributor at The Foundry. I’m here at the UN’s Cancun Climate Conference—or COP16 (Conference of the Parties) in the jargon.  The last two COPs in Poznan (2008) and Copenhagen (2009) were (ironically) characterized by exceptionally cold weather.  I can’t say that there’s December snow in Cancun, but locals tell me […]

What 1 billion climate refugees?

December 10, 2010 by

By Andrew Bolt Slowly, slowly, the alarmists are being confronted. This time it’s by a warmist academic – and even in the Sydney Morning Herald. Associate Professor Jane McAdam, editor of Climate Change and Displacement, dismisses the latest scare-claims from Cancun: If we are to believe recent reports, the effects of climate change over the […]

Memo to America: Don’t do Carbon Trading!

December 8, 2010 by

1

By Roger Helmer, MEP Senator Harry Reid has repeatedly denounced opposition to carbon trading as “dangerous.” Senator Reid is wrong. It is the House and Senate climate and renewable energy bills that are dangerous. Fortunately, the recent elections and the ongoing dissension at the Cancun climate summit could bode ill for carbon trading, any successor […]

The Cancun Wealth Redistribution Conference

December 8, 2010 by

By Paul Driessen It’s become a predictable annual rite. Several weeks prior to each global warming gabfest, breathless news stories, editorials, op-eds and pontifications begin hitting the airwaves and print pages, reaching a crescendo as the conference opens. So it was with Copenhagen; so it is with Cancun. Actually, it may be worse this year. […]

By Donald Douglas Watch this video from the Al Jazeera network very closely, and note especially how the term ‘Sea Ice’ is mentioned in relation to rising sea levels.

AP Reporters Try to Breathe Life Into Moribund UN Cancun Climate Conference

December 6, 2010 by

By Tom Blumer I do hope that Associated Press reporters Arthur Max and Charles J. Hanley are finding some recreational time while they are reporting from Cancun about what’s happening at the “United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.” The pair’s bosses ought to be asking them how much real attention they are paying to […]

Why Is the Obama Administration in Cancun?

December 4, 2010 by

1

By Brett Schaefer Last year at this time, the United Nations was coming to grips with the fact that the Copenhagen climate change summit would not produce a legally binding climate pact to succeed the failed Kyoto Protocol. In retrospect, nearly everyone acknowledges that the Copenhagen conference failed utterly to achieve its objectives. A year […]

So what’s to talk about at Cancun now?

By Andrew Bolt The country which named the treaty doesn’t want it renewed. Full stop: The world’s climate negotiations in Cancun were faced with deadlock at their outset yesterday after Japan insisted it would not agree to renewing the Kyoto Protocol, the current treaty under which rich countries are cutting their emissions of greenhouse gases.

Global Warming Summit in Cancun Opens with Prayer to Pagan Goddess Ixchel

By Ken Shepherd During a congressional hearing in March 2009, manmade global warming skeptic Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) referred to God’s promise in the the book of Genesis to never again flood the entire Earth as one reason why he is dismissive of global warming alarmists. “The earth will end only when God declares its […]

Cancun Climate Change Conference: Less Hype, Same Obstacles

December 1, 2010 by

By Nicolas Loris International climate change talks kicked off on Monday in Cancun, Mexico, and the expectations aren’t nearly as high as they were last year at the summit in Copenhagen, where no country committed to any legal binding agreement. This year in Cancun, leaders from nearly 200 countries will come together at the 16th […]

Cancun Climate Conference – U.N. Proposes Rationing …..Everything!

Nearly three years ago now, I started contributing posts here on the subject of what would need to be done to comply with what was being asked in The Kyoto Protocol. This Kyoto Protocol called for a drastic cutback in the emissions of Carbon Dioxide, (CO2) and because the largest source of those emissions is […]

By Andrew Bolt Tom Switzer on Mexico’s Copenhagen: For the next two weeks the world’s carboncrats will gather in Cancun for the latest United Nations climate conference. The aim is to negotiate a vast new international emissions trading scheme that Barack Obama wants the United States to join. But the delegates are in a state […]

Climate Change Is Still About Chinese Coal

November 29, 2010 by

By Derek Scissors Ph.D. The climate change conference starting in Cancun Monday is doomed to failure. Many factors contribute to this, such as a healthy skepticism about how much should be spent to remediate climate change, but one alone guarantees failure: Chinese coal production and policy. When climate change soared up the American agenda with […]
