A major new study says that the cost to meet the UN Paris Agreement's target of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees C is a whopping three times the cost to limit it to 2 degrees. That is a huge cost for a very small difference.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen exposes the unscientific shenanigans of the International Agency for Research on Cancer that are under Congressional investigation for scientific bias, secrecy, and corruption -- and how the IARC, much of whose funding is from the U.S. Congress, has arrogantly obfuscated, stalled, and even demanded immunity.
Massive surveillance technology in the hands of a politically correct UN bureaucracy taking us back to serfdom is not quite the "future we want."
Digital surveillance featured prominently at the UN's 9th World Urban Forum (WUF9) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. WATCH NOW.
A presenter makes a revealing slip at the United Nations ninth World Urban Forum (WUF 9) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. WATCH NOW.
During a session entitled, “One Planet Cities” a speaker from Denmark proudly explained how important youth are to the NUA. He said, “we’ve been educating our children for the last 25 years on anthropogenic global warming” and since many are now adults “they are actively implementing policies to combat Climate Change.”
It didn't take long at the UN's "World Urban Forum," currently underway in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for those assembled to voice their displeasure with American freedom.
The international climate machine is about to achieve a new degree of alarmist absurdity, basically speeding up as they hit the wall. It is all about the Paris Climate Agreement targets and it is kind of fun to watch.
The basic idea is very simple, which good scams always are. The Federal Government (in other words, taxpayers) buys climate insurance for specific developing countries. This insurance then pays for damages supposedly due to climate change.
These reports are supposedly summarizing the existing scientific literature, but in reality the merely choose and use scholarly citations to support the one-sided argument for alarmism.
The mayors who failed to successfully control unemployment, welfare dependency, failing schools, drug addiction and violent crime are not very likely to successfully control our global thermostat.
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen wishes the entire world a happy time of thanksgiving -- for the fossil fuels, hydroelectric power, and other contributions to reliable, affordable energy that has powered a dramatic shift in life expectancy and standards of living and world health, lifting billions out of poverty. He further challenges us to extend these blessings to the billions who even today lack the blessings of energy, in part because of elitist, eco-imperialist refusal to underwrite the financing of anything but renewable energy that is unreliable, expensive, and only in some cases the best (short-term) option.
Not only do HFCs fall outside the scope of the Montreal Protocol — it’s a greenhouse gas, not an ozone depleter — the treaty will also make air conditioners more expensive, hurting poor people.
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.
