The View From Mount Olympus

January 17, 2022 by

3

By Duggan Flanakin ~ Time flies. Mount Olympus has become hideaway retirement home for retired Greek gods. It’s not that they got old. They are, after all, immortal. Nah. They got hooked on Saturday Night Live, then realized the show was getting boring. The “real” world is much more laughable. More tragi-comedic, really. But the Greeks […]

Environmentalism Has Lost Its Way

January 5, 2022 by

5

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Driven by climate madness, the environmental movement has become the greatest advocate of destructive industrial development in history. As Kant said: “To will the end is to will the means”. In this case the means to the phantom end of climate control have led environmentalists to abandon all of their […]

Channeling Dan And Jane To Confront Biden’s Energy Mistakes

January 3, 2022 by

0

By Paul Driessen ~ As Covid lockdowns eased this past year, people all over the world went back to work and play. But while oil, natural gas, coal and electricity demand predictably shot up, President Biden canceled and hyper-regulated pipelines, leases and drilling permits. European leaders took similarly shortsighted actions. Inadequate global supplies chased rising […]

Now It’s Much Ado About Methane

January 2, 2022 by

4

By Dr. John Happs ~ It would appear that climate alarmists and associated vested interest groups might have decided that an increasing number of politicians and members of the public no longer see the trivial amounts of atmospheric carbon dioxide as having much of a role to play in our ever-changing climate and the weather […]

Is COP26 On Life Support And Could The 2022 Elections Pull The Plug?

December 23, 2021 by

1

From the team at CFACT ~ By Larry Goldstein and Michael Lynch: Now that COP26 is over, it is time to take a critical look at the future direction of climate change policies, as opposed to the headlines and commentary. The conference is probably the new definition of cognitive dissonance, as leaders called for dramatic […]

When The “Climate Catastrophe” Levee Breaks

December 15, 2021 by

4

By Duggan Flanakin ~ How long will it be before the World Economic Forum crowd realizes that Western elites no longer control the world’s future? How long before they lose their anti-growth influence that has brought energy production to a standstill (or worse) in the U.S, and across much of Europe? The climate crowd (Al Gore, […]

The Rise Of Climate Terrorism

December 10, 2021 by

2

From the team at CFACT ~ By Robert Hefner: As I wrote in We Need Leaders Who Prioritize People Over Molecules, climate alarmists “seem to have portrayed the problem [of climate change] in such an extremist way that they have convinced a growing army of climate warriors that terrorism is justified.” Consider that Tracy Stone-Manning, Biden’s […]

A Different Perspective On Global Warming

December 10, 2021 by

1

By Katie Tubb ~ We have grown accustomed to climate change being talked about in a certain way. Usually, it involves words and phrases like “dangerous,” “catastrophe,” “red zone,” and “one minute to midnight.” Equally dramatic are the policies proposed by many in Washington, D.C., to force a transition away from conventional energy to more […]

December 6, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ CLINTEL has produced a very interesting trio of open letters, with one each to heads of government, young people and climate scientists. Most open letters that challenge alarmism are focused on their content, so are written for a general audience. Others are to a specific person, regarding a specific issue. […]

Study Links Today’s Wildfires To Extinction Of Ancient Grazing Animals

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ By now, we all know the drill. The wildfires that have scorched millions of acres in the American West over the past decades are yet another sign of human-caused climate change. But a new study by researchers at Yale University and the Utah Natural History Museum puts forward an entirely […]

COP 26: Planet Saved, Now What?

November 12, 2021 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ A hugely funny thing happened on the outskirts of COP 26. The press seems to have missed this huge news, but the Paris Accord’s goal of keeping global warming below 2 degrees has now been met. Well okay, it has just been promised by politicians. But if you take political […]

COP 26: Obama And AOC Fly In

November 10, 2021 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ Barack Obama may have served as the 44th President of the United States, but he is just as wrong as anyone else who approaches global warming from deep roving left field. “For those listening back home in the U.S., let me say this,” Obama told UN COP 26, “It doesn’t matter […]

Biodiversity Does NOT Shrink With Climate Change Or CO2

November 8, 2021 by

0

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ How will the ongoing rise in the air’s CO2 content affect the biodiversity of Earth’s many ecosystems? The answer after evaluating dozens of studies cited in Climate Change Revisited II: Fossil Fuels, edited by Joe and Diane Bast, is a resounding “Not At All”. The research clearly stated in the […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Teaming with the Irish Climate Science Forum, CLINTEL has produced a 17 page catalog of “misrepresentations” in the 40 page IPCC AR6 Summary for Policy Makers, better known as the SPM. Now they have sent this error list to the IPCC Chair and other world leaders. You can read it […]

Science Is A Leaky Vessel In The Age Of Climate

October 25, 2021 by

2

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ A lot of people just look at data and say, “Well, this is the data” and that is what they believe. But data in the modern age is a leaky vessel. There is such competition to produce innovative, provocative research that scientists are manipulating their data so they can get […]

Laughing At Climate Hysteria

October 23, 2021 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ We should laugh at climate hysteria, especially the fantasy proposals for stopping evil climate change. Electrify everything, running it on wind and solar? Restructure the economy? Restart the world in a green image? Stop eating meat and drinking milk? These proposals are all laughable, so feel free to laugh at […]

UN COP26 Climate Conference: Be Prepared For A Good Laugh

October 19, 2021 by

1

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ In the 1996 movie Jerry McGuire, football player Rod Tidwell has a single demand regarding what his agent must do to keep him as a client. He shouts, “Show me the money,” repeatedly in a line that made movie history. In the lead-up to the 26th Conference of the Parties […]

Nature Calls But The World Is Not Listening

October 14, 2021 by

By Duggan Flanakin ~ Remember that historic battle over teaching sex education in the public schools? One side demanded that any teaching on sex other than “Just say No!” was outside the lines, while the other side argued that too many teens were saying “Yes” anyway. Today’s green police believe they have the moral authority to […]

Climate Sensitivity To CO2 Lower Than UN Models Project

October 13, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ A new research approach has found a very low value for CO2 climate sensitivity, on the order of just one half degree C. This is in stark contrast to the latest IPCC computer modeling results, many of which give sensitivity results over five degrees. Sensitivity is a standard benchmark, the […]

Harm From War On Hydrocarbons Exceeds Harm From Climate Change

October 8, 2021 by

5

By Ronald Stein ~ We are being told of the world’s forthcoming demise with continued use of fossil fuels, and the need to commit to a reduction in emissions to keeping temperature rise below 1.5C, but we have nothing to compare potential fatalities with or without fossil fuels. History tells us that four of the […]

The Crafty Language Of Climate Alarmism

October 5, 2021 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ I am constantly entertained by the artful ways alarmists bend language to their will. This often happens as science stories percolate through the media. Each step is a bit of a stretch, maybe not an obvious lie. But the sequence of stretches takes us so very far from the truth […]

By Duggan Flanakin ~ British Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he is comfortable working with Joe Biden on climate change issues. At the United Nations Johnson days ago praised Biden’s promise to double the U.S. contribution to imposing climate rules on developing nations, remarking that, “It’s fantastic to see the United States really stepping up and […]
