Maladaptation to bogus climate change

People seem to think that adaptation to climate change is a free good. Some people tout it as a "no regrets" alternative to questionable mitigation efforts such as decarbonization. It is certainly not free and if the projected changes fail to occur it can easily be very bad.

Multilateral anti-development banks

Five "multilateral development banks," along with the European Investment Bank and Islamic Development Bank, released a joint report on what they call “climate finance” – which last year jumped a whopping 30% – to a staggering $34 billion dollars! How does this impact getting energy to the poor?

Tell NSF to cut the climate alarmism

The request for information invites us "to think boldly about the opportunities for advancing environmental research and education into its next stage through a lens focused on economic competitiveness and/or national security."

Get the government out of our appliances

Energy efficiency means doing the same job with less energy. If performance is degraded then this is energy rationing or restriction, not energy efficiency. DOE has no statutory authorization or mandate to impose energy rationing or restriction on appliances.

Help EPA rethink regulatory cost-benefit analysis

EPA is asking for your input! EPA is considering changing how it does cost and benefit analysis for new regulations. This is great news, because the Agency's analyses have often been biased in favor of regulation, sometimes to the point of absurdity.

EPA leads in open science

Many researchers (or their institutions) are likely to want their work to be EPA usable, even if EPA does not fund it. They will then adopt usability practices from the beginning, which may be a new way of doing research. This is exactly what the open science movement is calling for.

Absurd “loss & damage” policy advances at UN’s Bonn climate summit

Loss and damage is diplomatic code for the idea that the developed countries, especially America, should pay the developing countries for the bad things that they attribute to climate change. This includes pretty much all bad weather, plus the supposed effects of sea level rise, and who knows what else.
