How Obama Is Gearing Up To Ignore Lawmakers, Commit US To Significant Carbon Emissions Reductions

October 24, 2015 by


By Steven Groves ~ Remember that part of the Constitution that gives the executive branch of government the authority to make a commitment with foreign powers to cap carbon emissions levels and then enforce that commitment domestically with onerous environmental regulations? Me neither. But that’s exactly what President Obama plans to do in Paris later this […]

Kyoto Revisited – President Obama’s Pledge For Paris (Part Two)

April 20, 2015 by


PART TWO OF TWO PARTS By Anton Lang ~ Link to Part One of this Two Part Series How easy is it for a President with less than two years to serve to make a pledge to reduce Greenhouse Gas emissions by 28%? How easy is it for him to then strut the International stage […]

Kyoto Revisited – President Obama’s Pledge For Paris (Part One)

April 17, 2015 by


PART ONE OF TWO PARTS By Anton Lang ~ For the seven years I have been contributing at this site, I have concentrated on explaining why renewable power just cannot replace coal fired power as a source of constant, regular, and reliable electricity. So then, would a plan to remove almost a third of all […]

International Emissions Idiocy

December 18, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Most of the people of the world have concluded that the decades of warnings about “global warming” and its successor, “climate change”, is just idiotic nonsense. Few believe that humans ever had or ever will have any role in what the weather will be tomorrow or a thousand years from now. […]

The Carbon Trading Money Tree

January 29, 2013 by


By Dr. Kelvin Kemm. PhD ~ The COP-18 environmental conference held in Doha has come and gone. In the wake of high expectations for a successor treaty, the Kyoto Protocol was extended, but only after bitter debate – and several countries have withdrawn from the process or signalled their intent to do so. Moreover, many […]

Which Leaves Just Us Here In Australia And Some Other Warmist Patsies

January 3, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ Remember Climate Change Minister Greg Combet’s mendacious and deceitful spin last year about the rest of the world matching Australia’s insane sacrifices to “stop” a global warming that actually paused 16 years ago?: AUSTRALIA plans to join Europe in a renewed and binding pledge to reduce emissions under the Kyoto treaty, […]

International Climate Change Lawsuits?

March 15, 2012 by


By Steven Groves ~ If the U.S. reverses its 30-year policy and joins the U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), it will certainly be exposed to climate change lawsuits in the tribunals established by the convention, as detailed in a new Heritage Foundation Backgrounder, “Accession to U.N. Convention on the Law of […]

No Carbon Trading Market, But Lots Of Scams

November 3, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Greg Sheridan is right, of course:  Although the carbon tax will cost Australians $9 billion in its first year, our greenhouse emissions continue to rise under the tax. We hit our target of a 5 per cent reduction mainly by buying carbon credits on the international market, which the government assumes will […]

Kyoto Revisited – The Clean Development Mechanism

October 4, 2011 by


When I started to contribute at this site in March of 2008, the first Posts I submitted were about the Kyoto Protocol. It was meant to be a short Series, but it morphed into more than 50 separate Posts over 15 weeks, and that started me off here. I was concerned that this might ‘tap […]

The UN’s Climate of Desperation

July 9, 2011 by


By David Rothbard and Craig Rucker As the UN wrapped up its recent climate conference in Bonn, Germany, talks organizer Christiana Figueres proclaimed that climate change is the “the most important negotiation the world has ever faced.”  Faced with real problems – financial meltdowns, unemployment, war and genuine human suffering – the world no longer […]

Japan, China And Russia Don’t Believe What Gillard Tells Australia

May 30, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Which makes it even crazier for Australia to slash its own emissions, unilaterally: AUSTRALIA’S mining industry has seized on the refusal of three major economies to sign on to a new round of Kyoto Protocol emissions cuts, as Tony Abbott warned even a business-endorsed $10-a-tonne carbon price would cost jobs. Russia, Japan […]

No Wonder China Likes The Global Warming Scare

April 28, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt The great emissions-slashing scam is just a way of shifting jobs from the West to the East, while doing not a cracker for the climate: Cuts in carbon emissions by developed countries since 1990 have been cancelled out many times over by increases in imported goods from developing countries such as China, […]

Why Is the Obama Administration in Cancun?

December 4, 2010 by


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?

December 4, 2010 by


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. […]

The Climate Mafia Gather in Cancun

November 28, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba On November 14, 1957, leaders of the American and other Mafia organizations gathered at the home of Joseph “Joe the Barber” Barbara in Apalachin, New York; approximately one hundred Mafiosi from around the United States, Canada, and Italy attended. Up to then, J. Edgar Hoover, the Director of the Federal Bureau of […]

The UN and Climate Change – Ten Fateful Words

November 9, 2010 by


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 […]

Guardian Reveals Failure Of Kyoto Protocol

October 20, 2010 by


By James Banks Maybe international treaties do send perfectly good jobs overseas after all; it’s just that these treaties do so by regulating commerce at home rather than facilitating it abroad. The Kyoto Protocol is evidence of this fact. Less than a week ago, as the European Environment Agency was celebrating reducing carbon production by […]

Nuclear Electrical Power Generation – Why The Fuss? – Introduction

October 19, 2010 by


UPDATE 2012.  This series is now more than three years old, and while nearly all the information is generic and still current, what is not current is the Post dealing with costings. This Post was based around information available at the time, almost four years old now, and that information changes quite regularly, so constantly […]

Bjorn Lomborg’s Non-About Face

September 3, 2010 by


By David Kreutzer, Ph.D. Bjorn Lomborg wins a prize for having the most misrepresented position on climate change. In a recent interview with The Guardian, Lomborg reveals he believes that climate change is a problem. The Guardian refers to this as an “apparent U-turn.” It might appear to be a U-turn, but it isn’t. In […]

[Video] Obama Advisor: Lets Use Cap-and-Trade Taxes To Give Money To Other Countries

July 9, 2010 by


From the Staff at EyeBlast TV This may actually ‘seem’ on the surface to be quite an innocuous statement from the Obama Administration’s Science ‘Czar’ John Holdren. However, it really only confirms what I have been saying all along for the last two years. The original Kyoto Protocol brought out by the UN Framework Convention […]

New Zealand Sacrifices To Save The World 0.04 Per Cent

July 2, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt New Zealand Prime Minister John Key had it right the first time, in 2005: I rise on behalf of the National Party to give the good news to the people of New Zealand—that is, the Climate Change Response Amendment Bill is a load of rubbish and the National Party will not be […]

Meet New Zealand’s ETS: Costly, Corrupted And Useless

June 30, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt New Zealand discovers what a useless and corrupt rort an emissions trading scheme really is: New Zealand’s failure to cut greenhouse gas emissions has left taxpayers staring down the barrel of a Kyoto Protocol liability of at least $1 billion and possibly more than $5 billion, according to a book analysing National’s […]

“Deniers” Meet And The Media Ignores Them…Again

May 19, 2010 by


By Alan Caruba “Denial” is not a river in Africa, nor is it a proper term for the legion of climatologists, meteorologists, geologists, and others like myself who have devoted decades to debunking the utter rubbish called “global warming.” So toxic has the term become, the charlatans pushing the fraud have long since abandoned it […]

What Future For Kyoto

May 11, 2010 by


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 […]
