EPA assumes zero benefits from the burning of fossil fuels while proclaiming heavy costs from increased carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere. Now, as Greens push for increasing the alleged "social cost of carbon" from the current 36/ton (up from $22/ton back in 2010) to an astonishing $43/ton, Roger Bezdek and Paul Driessen show that EPA is violating federal law (including Executive Order 12866) by ignoring the massive benefits to society (some $70 trillion in the U.S. alone) from fossil fuels use.
Just as the Obama Administration, the EPA, the UN, and the compliant media are pumping up futuristic global warming horror stories, many of the world's top scientists are speaking out ever more sharply against this fraud. Among them: Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore, German environmentalist Dr. Fritz Vahrenholt, Gaia promoter Dr. James Lovelock, and Nobel Laureate physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever. All the while, some of their former colleagues are now calling for the heads orf such skeptics on a silver platter.
In the beginning Stephen Schneider believed in global cooling - then he flipped 180 degrees, rendering his global cooling book useless. Michael Mann invented the hockey stick to "prove" human-caused global warming, yet cherry-picked his tree rings and cheated on his data -- as did Phil Jones and friends in East Anglia. Yet their sins may have been equaled by the phony hearings conducted at Penn State and in the United Kingdom that ignored nearly all of the evidence except that presented by the guys on the griddle. No wonder the world is laughing!
Australian climate professor Chris Turney put the lives of his fellow scientists and a host of Russian seamen at risk by his foolish attempt to "prove" that manmade global warming is destroying the East Antarctic ice sheet. But he is hardly the first arrogant fool to have to be rescued from a botched global warming stunt. Yet Turney and his fellows can point fingers to their colleagues at the EPA and the UN's IPCC as co-conspirators in their doomed adventures. We need to stand up and stop funding this nonsense before someone really gets hurt.
Can the media ignore both the global warming nature of the expedition that got itself trapped in Antarctic ice, and 2013's massive growth of Antarctic ice itself? UPDATE: The Yanks are comin'. U.S. ice breaker steaming to the rescue.
It’s been widely touted that 97% of scientists believe global warming is mostly driven by human activities. But according to meteorologist Anthony Watts, this alleged consensus is extremely deceptive.
In the wake of the tragic typhoon Yolanda that killed over 5,000 people in the Philippines, climate activists attempted to blame it on man-made global warming. Marc Morano, editor of ClimateDepot.com, says this is incorrect.
Carbon dioxide has received a lot of flak for its supposed link to global warming. But Dr. Craig Idso of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide believes CO2 actually provides the planet with more benefits than costs.
It is hard to tell which is more embarrassing or more offensive: The Obama Administration's recently upgraded war on carbon dioxide (and thus on fossil fuels) or the American media's blank stare into the oncoming headlights via its refusal to even consider that the man-made warming theory and models are just not true.
The crashing end to the global warmiing debate came recently, with the admission by the UN IPCC that there is a glaring disconnect between their climate model projections and observed real-world trends: Everyone now agrees (or admits) that the Earth has not been warming for the past 16 years. And yet, the same IPCC still makes outrageous claims (read bald-faced lies!) in its Fifth Assessment Report that every major natural weather event is extremely massive because of global warming.
With their heads in the sand, University of Nebraska scientists (sic) are refusing to accept state money to focus on natural causes of climate variation. Driessen and Mitchell suggst they dare not tread far away from the "settled science" that the ONLY notable cause of climate change is human activity -- for fear of getting thrown off the federal government's gravy train. After all, the forebears of today's politicians found Galileo guilty of heresy.
Throughout history, the key resource crises have always been first about food security. The folly of fearing a warmer Earth belies the fact that all of the past crises have come at a time of global cooling that shortened growing seasons and reduced crop yields. Today, just as it is folly to fear manmade global warming, it is foolish to use corn as
Climate campaigners are claiming (with no real-world basis) that typhoon Haiyan/Yolanda, which just struck the Philippines and China is the result of global warming. In short, they blame this storm on you for living in an industrialized, free society. CFACT and Climate Depot debunk the hype.
On Friday President Obama issued an executive order to millions of government employees to insert his global warming agenda into everything they do. Science and history are not on the President's side.
While Al Gore and UN climate chief Christina Figueres insist that Austalia's repeal of its oppressive carbon tax is somehow linked to recent forest fires there, the truth -- as documented by CFACT Advisor Dr. David Evans -- is that UN-style forest management policies have left heavy fuel load (fallen trees and brush traditionally harvested by locals -- a practice now forbidden) is the major contributor to these fires being hotter and lasting longer.
