Cancun Climate Change Conference: Less Hype, Same Obstacles

December 1, 2010 by

1

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 […]

It’s the climate of opinion that has changed

November 30, 2010 by

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

0

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 […]

Climate Change Idiocy and The Economist

November 26, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba For a brief period I subscribed to The Economist, the London-based internationally distributed magazine, but I stopped as it became obvious that its editors are idiots and the general purpose of the magazine is to ignore any and all facts that might contradict their obsession with “global warming” and now “climate change.” […]

Climate Change, No Longer Scary in Europe

November 24, 2010 by

0

By Dr. Hans Labohm The upcoming climate change (and wealth redistribution) summit in Cancun – coupled with Bjorn Lomborg’s ongoing publicity campaign for his new film – makes one thing painfully obvious. The fight against the delusion of dangerous man-made global warming remains an uphill struggle. For decades the climate debate has been obfuscated by […]

Climate Talks or Wealth Redistribution Talks?

November 20, 2010 by

0

By Nicolas Loris Typically the largest wealth distribution program that occurs in Cancun, Mexico, is college students spending their parents’ money. That could change at the upcoming United Nations climate summit if developing countries clamoring for money to cope with global warming get their wish. With each passing year, it’s clear that international climate change […]

Cancun – more dangerous than Copenhagen

November 15, 2010 by

0

By Andrew Bolt This refers to the upcoming conference of the UNFCCC, (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) the continuing series of conferences organised by this body and where the Kyoto Protocol originated from. The UN is desperately looking to find a replacement for Kyoto, but as I have said so many times now, […]

The UN and Climate Change – Ten Fateful Words

I saw this article on Saturday just gone, and it immediately piqued my interest. Click on the link and read the article before going any further. UN climate panel calls for carbon and transport taxes. Nearly three years ago now, I started contributing posts at this site, in the form of a series on the […]

What’s Drowning Is Not Tuvalu But The Alarmists

June 3, 2010 by

0

By Andrew Bolt. Remember this great scare, which turned Tuvalu into the poster island of the global warming faith? More than 75 million people living on Pacific islands will have to relocate by 2050 because of the effects of climate change, Oxfam has warned. It was a scare whipped up by Al Gore, of course, […]

What Future For Kyoto

May 11, 2010 by

0

Twenty seven months ago, I started a series on the implications of The Kyoto Protocol. What I hoped to do was to explain that if you believed in (Man Made) Global Warming, and hoped that this Protocol would provide the answer, then your belief in that had consequences. Right from that first post, I stated […]

Obama Has Better Things To Do Than Save A Planet

May 10, 2010 by

By Andrew Bolt (It would seem that in public, to look like he’s a man of action, willing to do all it takes, he will say one thing, and then in private, when the real decisions need to be made, it’s all a little ho hum!…..TonyfromOz) President-elect Barack Obama before the Copenhagen summit to save […]

Life Without (Electrical) Power (Part Three)

March 22, 2010 by

PART THREE OF THREE PARTS If you have not read Part One and Part Two, read them first by taking the links. In Part One, I mentioned the scare campaign of an impending Global Warming/Climate Change ‘catastrophe’, and how Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions, especially from coal fired power plants are the cause of this, and […]

The Melting Of American Sovereignty At ‘Hopenhagen’

February 27, 2010 by

0

By Adam Raezler Delegates and heads of state from 193 free and sovereign nations gathered in Copenhagen this past December with the hopes of agreeing on a binding international agreement to combat global climate change. Before Copenhagen, two similar international conferences were held with the purpose of addressing global climate change. Both, with the most […]

CBS: Congressmen Spent More Each Day At UN Climate Summit ‘Than Most Americans On Their Mortgage Payment’

January 27, 2010 by

By Noel Sheppard “For 15 Democratic and six Republican congressmen, food and rooms for two nights cost $4,400 tax dollars each. That`s $2,200 a day, more than most Americans spend on their monthly mortgage payment.” So said CBS’s Sharyl Attkisson Monday in a remarkable follow-up to her January 11 “Evening News” piece concerning the out […]

Actor Danny Glover Blames Global Warming For Haiti Earthquake

January 16, 2010 by

By Brent Baker Far-left actor Danny Glover, during an online interview this week, proposed global warming caused the devastating earthquake in Haiti. FNC caught up with the silliness Friday night, as Jim Angle led the “Grapevine” segment: Actor Danny Glover says the earthquake in Haiti is a result of global warming. Glover told GRITtv that […]

Jack Cafferty On Nancy Pelosi: ‘She’s A Horrible Woman’

January 13, 2010 by

By Noel Sheppard CNN’s Jack Cafferty on Tuesday called House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) a horrible woman. Twice. On the 4PM installment of the “Situation Room,” Cafferty expressed disgust with Monday’s revelation by the CBS “Evening News” about reckless spending by members of Congress at last month’s United Nations climate summit in Copenhagen. “It’s a […]

CBS Exposes Congress Wasting Money At UN Climate Summit

January 12, 2010 by

1

By Noel Sheppard It must really be cold outside, for the CBS “Evening News” Monday actually did a segment exposing how members of Congress wasted a huge amount of money at the United Nations’ climate summit in Copenhagen last month. Even more surprising, CBS’s Sharyl Attkisson pointed fingers at prominent Democrats including House Speaker Nancy […]

How Big A Failure Was Copenhagen?

January 7, 2010 by

2

By Ben Lieberman To fully appreciate what a step backwards the final Copenhagen accord is, one has to recall the buildup to it. For the last two years, global warming activists and UN officials had circled December 2009 on their calendars as the watershed moment for creating a new carbon-constrained global economy for decades to […]

Climate Change After Copenhagen – What Happens Next?

December 24, 2009 by

5

HOW TEN WORDS WRITTEN IN 1997 KILLED OFF COPENHAGEN. No matter what the spin might ever hope to achieve, Copenhagen was a huge flop. Because major World leaders actually did show up, they had to try and come away with something positive, so these people wouldn’t be absolutely humiliated, which, if the truth is to […]

Life In A ‘Climate Change’ Box

December 24, 2009 by

1

By Paul Driessen “Life in a box is better than no life at all,” playwright Tom Stoppard famously opined, through the personage of Rosencrantz. (Or was it Guildenstern?) That’s lucky for us, because our energy, environmental and economic policies have certainly put us in a box – and there is no easy way out. Congress […]

Market Responds To Copenhagen

By Nick Loris Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, who made the trip to Copenhagen to tell delegates the American public is rejecting a national energy tax, opined that the UN climate change conference was a failure in USA Today. The market agrees with him. As expectations for a legally binding treaty to reduce greenhouse gas […]

Copenhagen Failed; Hooray, Hooray!

December 22, 2009 by

0

By William R. Hawkins “Don’t believe the hype, there is nothing fair, ambitious or legally binding about this deal….What we needed was a legally binding agreement that was fair to developing countries and ambitious when it came to emissions cuts and ending deforestation. In the end they produced a poor deal full of loopholes big […]

The Slaves Of The Democrat Party

December 21, 2009 by

0

By Alan Caruba It was a fitting symbol of the pack of lies that constitute “global warming.” The President of the United States, along with the Speaker of the House, had to flee Copenhagen’s Climate Change Conference because of a snow storm of epic proportions for that Danish city and to return swiftly to Washington, […]

Copenhagen – Not Worth Even The Signature

December 21, 2009 by

0

By Andrew Bolt How weak was the Copenhagen deal? Let Barack Obama explain it to you, before he catches the next plane out of town: A reporter queried the President’s departure before the draft was finalised. ‘’Does it require signing, is it that kind of agreement?’’ The President replied vaguely: ‘’You know, it raises an […]
