• The carbon trading money tree

    When it appears easy to make a lot of money from something simple then in all probability something is wrong. The economic rules which govern the world usually dictate that it is not easy to make a lot of money with not much effort.

  • The new robber barons

    The new robber barons are not content with only taxes and debt. They are using other people’s hard-earned money to finance wind, solar, biofuel and other schemes that reward crony capitalist campaign contributors.while locking up centuries of vital energy resources.

  • 500 police bust Deutsche Bank over €300 million carbon trading scam

    Five hundred German police and tax inspectors raided offices and residences connected with Deutsche Bank in Berlin, Frankfurt and Dusselforf, Wednesday over allegations of conspiracy involving over €300 million in carbon trading tax fraud.

    While a few profiteers will amass carbon trading fortunes, these schemes will not impact the climate in any meaningful way. Whether conducted legally or illegally, all carbon trading is a waste and a scam which cries out to be halted.

  • Government eyes crippling climate-control measures

    CFACT in the Washington Times: EPA is ready to unleash its first wave of carbon-dioxide regulations. Congress wants to tax hydrocarbons and carbon-dioxide. The UN is trying to devise a new treaty to regulate energy at the international level. Even one of these actions would send shock waves through the economy. All three would be devastating.

  • UN takes concrete steps toward global tax

    In Doha, Qatar late Saturday delegates attending the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change took concrete steps toward a new global treaty to address global warming that will transform the economic structure of the world with a new global tax. To be completed by 2015, the UN expects every nation to implement it by 2020, even though the globe has not warmed for the past 16 years.

  • Climate Tyranny Avoids Scrutiny at COP 18

    It is unknown what the official U.S. response will be to the effort to get developed nations to ship bundles of cash to any undeveloped nation experiencing a hurricane, a typhoon, a blizzard, or any other “climate event.” In a cash-strapped nation about to “go over the fiscal cliff” did President Obama instruct U.S. delegates to go along with this absurd demand?

  • New Kyoto commtiment period adopted. Developed nations assigned liability for climate “losses”

    COP 18 voted just minutes ago to create a “Doha Climate Gateway” and agreed to a second commitment period for the Kyoto protocol. The U.S. remains out of the protocol, now joined by Russia, Japan and Canada.

    COP 18 inserted a “Loss & Damage Mechanism” into the final text which would require developed countries like the U.S. to pay poor nations for climate damages supposedly resulting from extreme weather events.

    The U.S. and the developed world must not empower the UN to order damages against our nations when severe weather strikes.

  • Deadlocked talks go into overtime

    The Doha climate talks deadlocked Friday, went into overtime and reconvened Saturday at 7:30 AM for an unscheduled extra day. Climate funding and CO2 targets divide nations rich from poor. Who speaks for freedom?

  • The misdirected tears of the Philippines

    This week Naderev M. Sano of the Phillipines delegation made a tear-filled speech to COP 18 in Doha, Qatar. In contrast to the delegates wrangling for national advantage, the shameless rent-seeking of the carbon profiteers and the left-wing agendas of the radical NGOs, Mr. Sano projected a refreshing sincerity. Sadly, he is sincerely wrong.

  • Chanting for climate

    Want to chant for climate? Forests? The environment? It’s cheaper than subsidies, wind turbines and redistribution and just as effective. Watch now.

  • Behind the scenes at COP 18

    The COP 18 chieftains have instituted a “paperless” policy, depriving delegates of daily programs and copies of negotiating documents that keep them relatively informed. And while this policy has allegedly “saved” 217 trees as of yesterday (I know this because the U.N. keeps a running tally prominently displayed on electronic billboards throughout the conference site), it has angered many who find this policy a means to keep the public in the dark about the current status of demands and negotiations. The conference was supposed to wrap Friday, but we’re going into overtime.

  • Triple threat: UN, EPA and Congress

    The triple threat to our energy, economy, jobs, living standards, health and welfare is justified by assertions that the actions will stabilize Earth’s climate and prevent a litany of global warming horrors.

    We need to educate the public and start the debate before our fate is sealed for us.

  • Extreme weather debunked

    There would be extreme weather if humans lived on Earth or not. With an arguable less than one degree Celsius of total warming, with no warming for the last 16 years, claims that human prosperity are causing extreme weather events are propaganda — nothing more.

    Climate Depot’s Extreme Weather Report 2012 lays out the science, history and evidence in detail. The report thoroughly debunks extreme weather propaganda and lays open the hypocrisy of those who exploit natural tragedy for ideological gain.

  • Alice in Wonderland science

    Climate propaganda regularly demands we accept impossible science.

    “There’s no use trying,” Alice said. “One can’t believe impossible things.” “I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

    Especially with the Doha climate change confab in full swing, taxpayers, newspaper readers – and anyone dreaming of a better life through reliable, affordable energy – deserves more honest reporting and more science-based energy and environmental policies than they have been getting.

  • Release: CFACT to hold press conference in Doha — Thursday

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: (Doha) Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) will be holding a press conference Thursday to call on the United Nations to halt its efforts to create a new climate change treaty. CFACT will release a report by Marc Morano, “Extreme Weather Report 2012 and a video message for the UN from Senator James Inhofe.

  • Monckton of Arabia!

    WATCH NOW! The Viscount Monckton of Brenchley’s next video report from the UN climate conference in Doha, Qatar! Audio starts soft, but his lordship is loud and clear.

  • CFACT’s Sequestration of exhalation masks a hit with UN in Qatar

    “Every human being exhales about 2.5 pounds of CO2 per day and 7 billion people equals 14 billion(ish) pounds of CO2 daily that is exhaled. So this mask would filter CO2 from your breath. Which is kind of cool, because it would reduce your personal carbon footprint on the earth.” Would you be willing to wear that for a few hours a day? While you sleep? How about your children? Pets?

  • Scientists at Munich conference challenge IPCC

    Scientists and policy experts just completed a European climate conference organized to coincide with the UN conference in Doha, Qatar. The warming propaganda industry likes to push the idea that all scientists back their ideology. Nothing could be further from the truth as demonstrated by this and other scientific gatherings.

  • ‘A complete economic transformation of the world’

    Ms. Christiana Figueres, chief secretary of the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, told a press conference in Doha today that the 18th Conference of the States Parties would bring about “a complete economic transformation of the world.”

    La Figurehead did not have in mind a free-market transformation. The intention of these 18 annual vacations – er, serious negotiations to Save The Planet – is what it always was: to create a treaty binding more than 190 nations to do as the Secretariat says. Democracy? What’s that?

  • Christiana’s nightmare – for the rest of us

    Aside from the fact that someone (Al Gore, international bankers and their kin) will make a killing off any carbon trading schemes – and that the UN bureaucracy is seeking to pad its own employment rolls and pocketbooks – the sad reality is that none of the shenanigans at Doha (or at any previous or future UNFCCC dog and pony show) is likely to improve the well-being of the billions of humans in so-called developing countries one whit.

  • Morano vs. Mann on the BBC

    In this corner….. Marc “The Godfather” Morano. In the other corner….. Michael “Hockey Schtick” Mann. Hear it now, while you still can!

  • 18 annual climate gabfests: 16 years without warming

    DELEGATES at the 18th annual UN climate gabfest at the dismal, echoing Doha conference center – one of the least exotic locations chosen for these rebarbatively repetitive exercises in pointlessness – have an Oops! problem.

    No, not the sand-flies. Not the questionable food. Not the near-record low attendance. The Oops! problem is this. For the past 16 of the 18-year series of annual hot-air sessions about hot air, the world’s hot air has not gotten hotter. There has been no global warming. At all. Zilch. Nada. Zip. Bupkis.

  • Does the UN have Africa in an emissions arm lock?

    The rich kids are trying to push Africa around, bullying African countries into accepting their opinions and, even worse, adopting their “solutions.” Africa should resist the moral and psychological pressure being exerted on it to agree to binding limits on carbon dioxide emissions. Any such agreement would place African countries at the mercy of rich UN nations without any benefit accruing to Africa.

  • Qatar and the climate thieves

    The climate campaigners in Doha, Qatar are likely to shun media coverage of their schemes to transfer massive amounts of money from developed to undeveloped nations. They want to make their fortunes at the same time. Thieves work best in the dark.

  • Canada being hoodwinked in UN climate process

    Canada should purge climate alarmism from all government communications, especially those of Minister Kent. In Qatar the only solution that makes sense for Canada is to get out of the UNFCCC that spawned the Kyoto, Cancun, and Durban agreements in the first place.

  • Media Release: CFACT sends delegation to COP18

    CFACT’s delegates to COP 18, the UN climate conference, are your eyes, ears and voice in Doha, Qatar, Will Obama try and push the U.S. into a binding UN treaty? Will Lord Monckton jump out of another plane? Read CFACT’s media advisory and then follow all the developments at CFACT.org/Qatar.

  • Morano debunks extreme weather climate propaganda

    Campaigners are using natural disasters for climate propaganda as UN climate talks kick off in Qatar. Using storms as a poster child for global warming is completely devoid of science, explains Marc Morano of CFACT’s Climate Depot. “This has now reached the level of the Mayan calendar and Nostradamus.”

  • Marc Morano: The Godfather of climate skepticism

    As the Qatar climate summit heats up, Germany’s “Die Zeit” calls CFACT’s Marc Morano the climate “Godfather” — tries to do a hit piece on him, but Climate Depot shoots back. “It’s just business, nothing personal…”

  • UN’s Green Climate Fund to cost you

    Front and center at the UN climate talks in Doha, Qatar will be the “Green Climate Fund,” designed to transfer over a trillion dollars from the developed to the developing world. The world should abolish the Green Climate Fund now before this infant grows into the monster it is destined to become.

  • CFACT takes on UN climate summit in Qatar

    CFACT is headed to the Arabian Peninsula — to Doha, Qatar, for COP18, the UN Conference on Climate Change. The Obama administration is set to begin its first major UN climate negotiation since reelection. EPA already has crippling regulations lined up and ready to go to give the UN’s climate campaigners by administrative fiat what they could not achieve through the open legislative process. The main threat is that Obama will cut side deals and agreements in Qatar and then bypass Congress and its vexing checks, balances and democratic process.

    Is there any limit to Presiden Obama’s renewed hubris? Would he, could he dare to use this Qatar conference to set the stage to bind the United States to a full-blown UN climate treaty and then use brinksmanship to push it through this Senate, or the next?

  • The next environmental battlegrounds

    When American voters reelected President Obama, they also returned his EPA, Interior and Energy Departments, and wide-ranging agenda for “fundamentally transforming” our nation. This will mean not only cementing Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, higher taxes, and rampant spending. It will also bring more disputes over energy and environmental regulations, the vanguard of Mr. Obama’s determined campaign to eliminate hydrocarbons that power our economy and embrace more “green” energy. The conflict will be fought primarily on six battlegrounds.

  • Tough election: what next?

    Green extremists are already more emboldened than ever. Only minutes after his victory President Obama, who avoided global warming throughout the campaign like the pox, threw them a bone when he chimed, “we want our kids to grow up in a world…that isn’t threatened by the destructive power of the warming planet.” At CFACT, we have work to do.
