COP 25: UN’s Madrid Climate Summit Produced Net-Zero Benefits

December 30, 2019 by


By Larry Bell ~ Attendees at the United Nation’s 25th annual climate conference (COP 25) in Madrid earlier this month concluded with little more than net-zero benefit alarmism and virtue-signaling based upon two very shaky scientific and technological foundations. The first creates a bogus climate crisis premised upon consistently failed theoretical models of the U.N.’s Intergovernmental […]

COP 25: Paris Accord Destroyed

December 20, 2019 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ “Action Now!” radicalism has destroyed the slow moving, consensus based Paris Agreement. It is not just COP 25 that failed; the UN climate change machinery has collapsed. This is good news, even though the reason is bad news. I have been writing about the climate alarmism movement tearing itself apart […]

COP 25: UN Climate Talks Collapse

December 17, 2019 by


By Craig Rucker ~ UCOP 25 was an utter failure for the United Nations. Despite extending the conference into double overtime making it the longest COP ever, the UN was forced to adjourn without advancing the “rule book” for the Paris Climate Accord, or agreeing on a framework for an international carbon market. UN Secretary […]

COP 25: Loss And Damage Inches On, But Is Toothless And Homeless

December 14, 2019 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Loss and Damage (L&D) is the name of the hugely dangerous issue whereby developed countries would compensate the developing world for damages caused by things like bad weather and rising seas, in the name of climate change. It has been slowly inching forward at every COP. This time L&D made […]

Greta’s “Person Of The Year,” But Her Climate Kids Are Emotional And Vacuous At COP 25

December 12, 2019 by


By Craig Rucker ~ Crying kids is the latest imagery popping out of the climate-left’s playbook. CFACT was there when Greta Thunberg’s group “Fridays for Future” staged a press conference at COP 25 in Madrid. Daisy Jeffrey has been called Australia’s Greta Thunberg.  She’s been leading regular climate “strikes” Down Under where students boycott their […]

COP 25: Funny Stuff Behind The Curtain In Madrid

December 11, 2019 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ If you hold your nose and look closely there is some pretty funny stuff going on at the UN climate summit in Madrid. It is hard to hold your nose and laugh at the same time, but if you want to be UN watcher it is a necessary skill. I […]

COP 25: Hysterics March To No Avail In Madrid

December 9, 2019 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Friday was hysterical marching day, so they dutifully filled a street in Madrid. In addition, in a carefully orchestrated show, hundreds of demonstrators were let into the COP 25 conference center. These marches are family social affairs, so there were mothers with babies, etc. Ironically, while this family social occupied […]

COP 25: Climate Radicals Push For Control

December 7, 2019 by


By Craig Rucker ~ Representatives around the world are meeting in Madrid to expand the UN climate regime under the Paris Climate Accord.

For Extinction Rebellion, Greenpeace, Greta Thunberg and the rest of the radical wing […]

COP 25: Hysteria Meets Diplomacy In Madrid

December 6, 2019 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The climate change hysteria movement is expecting bold action at the COP 25 climate summit now on in Madrid. That is not how these protracted international negotiations work. One wonders what the hysterical reaction to inaction will be? As I have pointed out, the climate alarmism movement is tearing itself […]

December 4, 2019 by


By James Taylor ~ When it comes to the United Nations and climate change, it is all about the UN altruistically serving the people of the world. Or maybe not. Here in Madrid for the UN Conference of the Parties on climate change (COP25), UN attendees have special privileges. Arriving a day before the start […]

The UN’s Impossible Climate Action Pyramid

December 3, 2019 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Every year the UN produces a climate action report just before the annual climate summit (this year COP 25 in Madrid). This time the UN greens have outdone themselves, but not in a good way for them. The UN Environmental Program has produced a report that graphically demonstrates why what […]

Sale Of Indulgences Dominates Madrid Climate Summit

November 8, 2019 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ In Madrid the negotiators will be trying hard to finalize the Paris Accord emission trading scheme. The non-binding Paris Accord targets may have big bucks value for some developing countries and this has led to a paralyzing controversy. Emission trading means any country that does better than their target can […]
