Financial Times: Craig Rucker a ‘militant sceptic’

Excerpt from Financial Times:  Some militant sceptics, such as Craig Rucker, director of the US-based Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, linked Mr Turnbull’s political demise to the “Climategate scandal” – the release a week ago by computer hackers of thousands of e-mails sent to and from the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia in the UK. Political observers say Climategate had little effect on Mr Turnbull’s fate. They believe he was instead the victim of those within the Liberal party who regard an exchange-based trading scheme as an unjustified burden on the country’s economy.

Introductory Remarks by Craig Rucker of CFACT, Climate Sense Conference, Copenhagen

Ladies & Gentleman, mankind is in danger.  The threat is real.  Unless we, gathered here together resolve to take action there will be real and dire consequences.  Never before in my lifetime has the danger been so real, so close, so palpable.  The threat, however, is not from man-made global warming, but from man-made hysteria.  Yesterday, some 10,000 delegates representing over 180 nations flew into this lovely city for the start of the United Nations conference on Climate Change.  They represent the greatest threat to the health, safety, and standard of living for all mankind since the fall of twentienth century [...]

Scientific experts gather in Berlin to challenge UN scientific assumptions

"Climate Change Reconsidered" is a conference that featured prominent scientists like world renowned sea level expert Dr. Nils Axel Mörner discussing the fact that the scientific debate is not over and that economic analysis is more important than ever. The scientists expressed the view that global warming is not a crisis and that immediate action to reduce emissions is not necessary. This is, in fact, the emerging consensus view of scientists outside the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and most economists outside environmental advocacy groups.  The conference was the result of the collaborative efforts of the European Institute for Climate and Energy [...]

Cleaning out the climate science cesspool

As frigid Copenhagen prepares for the upcoming Climate Armageddon confab, a predictable barrage of hothouse horrors has been unleashed, to advance proposals to slash hydrocarbon use and carbon dioxide emissions, restrict agriculture and economic growth, and implement global governance and taxation. CO2 has reached a new high (0.0385% of the atmosphere), we’re told, because of cars and “coal-fired factories of death.” Rising seas are forcing families to “flee their homes.” Oceans are becoming “toxic.” Climate change is driving Philippine women into prostitution. Higher temperatures will “increase the likelihood of civil war in Sub-Saharan Africa” and “bring human civilization to a screeching [...]
