January 4, 2022 by

2

By Dr. Jay Lehr and Robert Lyman ~ To fully appreciate what the COP26 conference achieved, let us start by listing the notable accomplishments described in the Pact and in the press releases. This is intended as comic relief from your average work day. COP26 agreed to accelerate unabated efforts towards reducing coal power. At India’s […]

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

December 23, 2021 by

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 […]

November 17, 2021 by

By Duggan Flanakin ~ Joe Biden fell asleep (not even his most embarrassing moment!) at the Glasgow climate conference. And for good reason. It’s over. Net Zero by 2050 is dying a slow, painful death. President Xi Jinping said so. So did India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi. So did Africa. Good riddance. Oh, they are still […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The radical alarmists proposed a fistful of bad stuff during COP 26. A lot was in the surprise COP President’s proposed decision document on the last Wednesday, with just three days to go. See my https://www.cfact.org/2021/11/12/cop-26-with-bidens-help-the-cop-goes-wild/. Other ridiculous stuff was proposed by various country groups. None of it make it […]

COP 26: With Biden’s Help The COP Goes Wild

November 13, 2021 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Radical alarmists are running COP 26 and Biden is right there with them. What was supposed to be a finishing up of the Paris Accord rules has turned into a bid to write a whole new treaty. Huge fight to follow. Where radical stuff like this comes from is often […]

COP 26: Planet Saved, Now What?

November 12, 2021 by

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 […]

COP 26: Methane Madness

November 5, 2021 by

3

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The grandly aspirational announcements getting all the COP 26 press actually have nothing to do with the COP, which is basically a business meeting. Most of these big news events are in reality trivial, such as India saying it will try to hit net zero 50 years from now. Greta […]

Biden’s Climate Policy A Titanic Disaster In Waiting

November 4, 2021 by

3

By James Carafano and Jack Spencer ~ Rather than spending trillions that we do not have and making promises that cannot be kept, Congress and the administration should focus on implementing policies that reduce regulatory barriers to energy innovation, streamline permitting and regulatory reviews, and promote pro-growth tax policy. President Joe Biden’s approval ratings are […]

Twitter To ‘Pre-Bunk’ Criticism Of Left’s Climate Narrative During COP26

November 2, 2021 by

6

By Alexander Hall ~ Twitter is unleashing a new program to proactively protect the left’s climate change narrative and deflect criticism from skeptics during COP26. If there were any doubt that Big Tech’s existence is to curry favor for the left and their totalitarian policies, Twitter just hammered the final nail into the coffin. “Twitter […]

November 2, 2021 by

3

By Dr. Jay Lehr and Robert Lyman ~ Everyone loves a show, especially when there is high drama, heroes and villains and lots of hype to precede the event. By those standards, the 26th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, to be held in Glasgow, Scotland from October 31 […]

UN Climate Hypocrisy In Glasgow

October 29, 2021 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ The UN is heading to Glasgow, Scotland, for “COP 26,” which is being billed as the most important climate conference since Paris. CFACT will be there! COP 26 has been on hold for a year due to fears of COVID-19. It seems the UN has learned the wrong lesson from the […]

UN Climate Road Trip! (And $hakedown)

October 26, 2021 by

1

By Peter Murphy ~ Everyone who matters from the Biden administration wants to be seen as ‘caring about the planet and doing something about climate change. They are now tripping all over themselves to head to the upcoming United Nations climate conference. Nearly everyone else attending this conference will be looking for—actually, demanding—a handout from […]

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 […]

Carbon Trading Crunch Time At COP26

September 16, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The one big sticking point at COP26 is carbon trading. The trading scheme was supposed to be designed and adopted at COP24, as part of the Paris Accord rulebook. Did not happen. So it was the focal point of COP25. Still did not happen, in part because the radical alarmists […]
