The Daily Telegraph reports that Al Gore is poised to become the world's first carbon billionaire. Have consumers lined up to buy the former Vice-President's products and services? It appears, rather, that most of Mr. Gore's new wealth will flow to him from government grants and subsidies. Do we really want to tax working people to transfer wealth to a new class of climate oligarchs?
Here is an extensive library of peer-reviewed scientific papers compiled by PopularTechnology.net that support climate realism. The scientific debate is on. Real world experience and observation vs. man-made computer models. Who are you betting on? […]

Fair reporting from the BBC? Scientific evidence continues to mount against the IPCC’s climate report, however, the media establishment usually ignores it. What a surprise to read from the BBC that, “for the last 11 years we have not observed any increase in global temperatures. And our climate models did not forecast it, even though man-made carbon dioxide, the gas thought to be responsible for warming our planet, has continued to rise.” […]
The reality behind American Cap and Trade PAUL DRIESSEN (Washington) What is Cap and Trade? To address concerns that global warming threatens our planet, activists and politicians are pushing for a “cap-and-trade” program that would limit and tax carbon dioxide released by power plants, cars, factories and other facilities. It is a very complicated regulatory scheme that penalizes businesses and people who use energy or electricity generated from oil, gasoline, natural gas and coal (fossil fuels). […]
IPCC Relied On Study Which Used Tiny Sample. Results Collapse With Available Data Added. […]
The NY Times wants to know whether a dry, dusty spell in Australia is evidence of global warming. That Australia was prone to dryness and dust before the Dutch stumbled upon it doesn’t factor. When the Guardian reported last year that snow was blanketing the Middle East, they didn’t ask whether this showed we were all in for global cooling. Cooler heads of course know that neither event tells us much about our climate. Weather varies and history records the average of extremes. If the press reports unseasonable heat as warming and takes unseasonable cold in stride, it heads [...]

The Daily Telegraph reports windfarms, “can reduce bird numbers by up to half” citing a study by Britain’s Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB). The Golden Plover is one of the species the RSPB found was harmed by wind turbines. The idea of generating electricity from the wind always seems attractive at first glance. However, wind continues to generate only one percent of world power. Increasing that percentage requires adding thousands upon thousands of new turbines. Many people, such as those who left in protest when the RSPB endorsed British turbine plans […]

SIMON ESPERSEN (Copenhagen) In terms of political ideas, Denmark these days is largely socialist. In economic terms it is a mixed economy with a large part of civil society encroached upon by government bureaucracy. There is not a vital part of society that politicians do not seek to control. […]
SIMON ESPERSEN (COPENHAGEN) In recent years, a number of pro-free-market think tanks and taxpayer associations have been formed in France, and their effectiveness and impact clearly are increasing. These groups include Institut Economique Molinari, the Institute for Economic Studies-Europe, Institut de Formation Politique, Contribuables Associes (French Taxpayers Association), etc. In part because of their efforts, France has sharply reduced its corporate income-tax rate so it is lower than the U.S. rate.

SIMON ESPERSEN (Copenhagen) Connie Hedegaard is the Danish Minister for Climate and Energy. Along with her fellow Danish colleagues she is hosting the 2009 United Nations Climate Change Conference to be held in Copenhagen. Being a member of the Danish conservative party for decades you would not expect the minister to hold radical or extreme viewpoints regarding the relationship between man and nature. […]
