We should be glad the USA is out of Paris

CFACT Senior Policy Analyst Paul Driessen, with climatologist David Legates, asks those who claim that "we are still in" the Paris climate accord pay their equal share of the U.S. payment mandated by the Paris accords? How also will they justify the loss of jobs, revenues, and even the health of their constituents -- almost all of whom were not consulted when these leaders made their high-sounding pronouncements -- all of whom did so without providing a pathway for making the payments to the UN or the early retirement of fossil fuel power sources and replacement with the massive, very expensive wind and solar and biomass units needed to keep America's electrical grid functional without major interruptions in service? The fact is that none of these blowhards can answer these questions, so they prefer to ignore them, hoping they will not have to do so.

Decades of climate hysteria unsupported by data

CFACT policy analyst Larry Bell chronicles the hysteria over climate change over the past 100 years-- starting in 1922 when the Washington Post predicted most coastal cities would be uninhabitable "within a few years." But by 1974 Time Magazine was warning of an impending Ice Age. It was back to warming by 1989 -- but the warming trend fizzled out by the end of the world (er, Y2K) -- leaving money-hungry activists with "climate change" as their solgan word -- a term now defined as anything that happens is bad but we at the UN can just have all of your money,

Climate accord withdrawal divides White House

Earlier this month, a Politico headline reported a "White House showdown on Paris deal set for next week," to resolve "simmering tensions" regarding "a major point of dispute between the moderate and nationalist wings of the White House." That planned April 18 meeting was subsequently postponed indefinitely due to top official "scheduling conflicts." Reuters reported a White House official saying that Trump aides will later "discuss the options, with the goal of providing a recommendation to the President about the path forward." Contentions surrounding various options revolve around three primary issues: Whether the U.S. should opt out of the Obama administration’s [...]

It’s climate regulations that threaten us

CFACT Advisor H. Sterling Burnett says that President Trump would do well to ensure that the EPA's ruling that carbon dioxide is a "pollutant" be reversed following a true scientific review. He should also withdraw the U.S. from international climate agreements that drive and justify many domestic climate actions – and stop diverting billions of dollars of taxpayer money from important domestic and defense concerns to UN climate programs.

Trump could shutter NASA climate alarm shop

President-elect Donald Trump’s senior space policy advisor, Bob Walker, recently observed that NASA has been reduced to "a logistics agency concentrating on space station resupply and politically correct environmental monitoring." Instead, "We see NASA in an exploration role, in deep space research." He added, "Mr. Trump’s decisions will be based upon solid science, not politicized science."

Five stages of climate grief

Ever since the elections, our media, schools, workplaces, and houses of worship have presented stories showcasing the stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. Liberal-progressive snowflakes are wallowing in denial, anger, and depression. They cannot work, attend class, or take exams. They need safe “healing” spaces, Play-Doh, comfort critters, and counseling. Too many throw tirades equating Donald Trump with Adolph Hitler, while too few are actually moving to Canada, New Zeeland, or Jupiter after solemnly promising they would. Nouveau grief is also characterized by the elimination of bargaining and acceptance – and their replacement by two new stages: intolerance [...]

Trump election chills Kerry’s Antarctic trip

CFACT polic advisor Larry Bell notes that the only real heating in the Antarctic is very likely due to volcanic activity below the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. Meanwhile, Secretary of State John Kerry took his last official trip to Antarctica -- to try to cool down the Trump phenomenon that is threatening the wealth and power of the UN and worldwide climate alarm industry.
