An attempt to formally protest against the Obama EPA's false finding that CO2 emissions endanger humans was stymied by major corporations, out to protect their false green images.
In Congressional testimony last week, EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt said there is probably a red team/blue team exercise coming soon, to officially explore the climate change debate.
Schulz just wants "more power." He is after all, a former President of the European Parliament.
It is time for the multi-billion dollar USGCRP to focus on understanding the sun-climate connection.
Germany's actions have been disastrous, driving energy prices through the roof. Voters have had enough.
There is a lot of talk about having a formal debate between climate scientists who believe in dangerous human caused climate change and those who are skeptical. Well it turns out that there has actually been such a debate and there is a transcript of it that anyone can read or analyze.
The NYT has outdone itself, with what has got to be the nuttiest alarmist opinion piece that I have ever seen. The title sort of says it all -- "The Climate Crisis? It’s Capitalism, Stupid."
The true shame is that teachers read this stuff and believe it, then teach it to their students.
Obama is gone. The "green queen" Angela Merkel is struggling over coal. Britain is brexiting the green EU. Japan is silent, while China and India burn coal like crazy. Russia never did care. And so it goes.
Major changes in UN structure take a long time but they have to start somewhere. At last week's UN climate summit the Ukraine floated a truly radical proposal. It amounts to making parties other than countries official members of the climate club. The parties in question include corporations and political entities like US states and cities, perhaps even NGOs like Greenpeace. The goal is the get as many heavyweights onto the official green team as possible.
As usual with the green press, it is more a matter of weaving together a series of half truths, omissions and advocacy, than of outright lies.
The Greens are giving great thanks for how cooperative the Trump team of negotiators was at the Bonn climate conference. In reality there was no Trump negotiating team.
The Climate Home news service puts it this way: "Climate talks in Bonn have been held hostage for more than a week over the issue, as poor countries called for a space to hold the rich to account on their promises."
In UN-speak it is called simply "loss and damage." This is the unfounded idea that people adversely affected by bad weather are "climate victims" and as such they should be compensated by the developed countries that supposedly caused the weather to be bad.
Most of the climate-compliant press is dedicated to hiding the climate finance issue, because Americans would object if they knew about it.
