Most of the climate-compliant press is dedicated to hiding the climate finance issue, because Americans would object if they knew about it.
The Trump Administrations daring decision to promote fossil fuels (including clean coal) at the Bonn climate summit may be paying off in unexpected ways.
Andrew Rakestraw is co-facilitator of the Transparency Framework, along with Xiang Gao from China. Transparency here means who is giving what money to whom under the so-called "financial mechanisms" of the Paris Agreement.
The Paris Pact COPs are all about money, not climate.
The 2-day, science intensive Climate and Energy Conference sponsored by CFACT and EIKE stands in wonderful contrast to the glib, quick hit side events that surround the Bonn UN conference.
Expelling the U.S. delegation would be unbelievably disruptive. These are supposed to be delicate diplomatic affairs. There is no provision in the Paris Agreement for this kind of terminal action, or in the underlying UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, which is a duly ratified U.S. treaty. Fun facts: The U.S. pays 22% of the UN budget and 20% of the UN climate process.
The "Trump effect" which is scaring the heck out of the Bonn negotiators.
Friday's release of the wildly alarmist "Climate Science Special Report" or CSSP has brought forth the predictable green gush from the lefty press. The fact that this is an official federal report that contradicts the Trump Administration's climate skepticism is its big selling point. That the release is strategically timed with the beginning of the grand UN climate control festival in Bonn, Germany makes it more than timely. That the science is crap is irrelevant.
How many climate alarmists does it take to write the rules of world domination? In the case of the upcoming Bonn meeting the answer is well over 20,000. I am not making this up.
The biggest issue on the UN's Bonn table is the supposed $100 billion a year that developing countries say we owe them,
The New Mexico Public Education Department tried to balance teaching about the climate. Then warming pressure groups got involved.
There are a number of good websites that question the prevailing dogma on wind farms, but few actually engage in teaching. The Alliance for Wise Energy Decisions (AWED) is a gem in this regard. Not only does the site shine with careful reasoning, it actually teaches how to make clear and convincing arguments.
The three US National Academies -- of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine -- are jointly upping their climate activism by creating a central organization called the Climate Communications Initiative or CCI.
Peer review is the evaluation of submitted journal articles that report specific research results. The Red Team will critique a huge assessment report that purports to summarize an entire body of science.
CO2Science has one of the largest collections of sound science material on the Web.
