    Poland recognizes the real global warming agenda

    One might say that the good people of Warsaw are Poles apart from the UN’s view of fossil fuels, which amounts to an outright condemnation of coal and suspicion of oil and natural gas. CFACT President got perhaps the warmest reception of his life when he spoke at a Polish independence day celebration that was also broadcast live to millions more on Polish national television. His message was simple: the UN’s clearly stated goal is worldwide wealth redistribution and a UN-headed global government — and the war on carbon is not about a cleaner environment or a more prosperous society at all.

    Poland saying “Nie” to Green demands

    You’ve heard us say the UN’s decision to have a climate conference in Poland was a big mistake. Poland is not only a nation highly skeptical of climate alarmism, but also one that is supportive and heavily reliant on coal and fossil fuels. Poland was probably not going to offer them the reception they were looking for.

    Now it appears some Greens are coming to a similar conclusion.

    Poland blocks EU environment council on climate

    Poland, which is about to assume the EU Presidency, is so fed up with EU climate policy that on June 22 it blocked the conclusions of the EU environmental ministers council. Polish good sense blocked the ministers from recommending the EU reduce carbon emissions by 80 percent by 2050 which would devastate European economies.  This […]

    Putin’s gift to America’s energy independence

    James Rust, taking a note from Peter Glover’s article about Russian energy imperialism, suggests the U.S. should step up its own energy production and liberalize our oil and gas export laws to provide Europe with the means to thwart Russia’s bold geopolitical strategy. Of course, the Europeans might do well to reverse their own anti-energy-production policies. The key is to remember that fossil fuels production is a manufacturing process that drives economic growth.

    Carbon benefits exceed costs by up to 500:1

    To justify their steady stream of anti-fossil fuel “climate change prevention” regulations, the Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Energy and other federal agencies have invented the “social cost of carbon” concept. It attaches arbitrary monetary values to the alleged impacts of using hydrocarbons and emitting carbon dioxide – and thereby enables government agencies to say the energy that powers 80% of our U.S. economy imposes enormous costs on society … which expensive, punitive regulations will prevent. However, the entire exercise is arbitrary, of questionable merit and validity, illegal, and even fraudulent. Most ridiculous of all, in violation of an important 1993 executive order, the federal methodology does not even consider one single aspect of the countless benefits that hydrocarbon energy provides to modern societies. In fact, if they considered both costs and benefits of carbon and carbon dioxide, federal officials would find that the benefits of carbon outweigh the costs by as much as 500 to 1!

    Lies my President told me

    We all know the President lied (or, more favorably, “misspoke”) when he said, “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor. Period.” We know the Administration totally fabricated the story that a silly YouTube video was the reason four Americans died in BenGhazi. So why should we be surprised as real-world data and the uncovering of official mischief demonstrate that the “global warming” (or “climate change”) hysteria was built on lies and that the real intent was to create a cause celebre for redistributing the world’s wealth?

    The UN global warming hoax is slowly dying!

    Alan Caruba boosts CFACT and the Heartland Institute for helping bring about the death of the Kyoto Protocol — with a toast to newly elected Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott and the people and government of Poland. Major media outlets such as Business Week and the New York Times, however, get short shrift as enablers of the warmist lies and misrepresentations.

    COP 19: The Left walks out on the climate talks

    Denied instant gratification of their global warming dreams of redistribution, up to 800 members of extreme enviro-left nongovernmental organizations walked out of COP 19, the UN climate summit in Warsaw, Poland. The Left may have left the stadium, but are still very much in the game.

    UN exploits gender issues to hustle climate treaty

    UN climate conference collapsing

    The UN’s duplicitous attempt to use fear of climate change as a springboard to amassing unprecedented new power has by now been fully exposed, and the UN did it to themselves, in part by choosing Warsaw, Poland, as the site of the COP 19 shenanigans. CFACT President David Rothbard was loudly cheered by Poles as he exposed the real intentions of the UN, and the fallout continues.
