UN Climate Change Conference in Doha, Qatar – 2012

The new robber barons

The new robber barons are not content with only taxes and debt. They are using other people's hard-earned money to finance wind, solar, biofuel and other schemes that reward crony capitalist campaign contributors.while locking up centuries of vital energy resources.

500 police bust Deutsche Bank over €300 million carbon trading scam

Five hundred German police and tax inspectors raided offices and residences connected with Deutsche Bank in Berlin, Frankfurt and Dusselforf, Wednesday over allegations of conspiracy involving over €300 million in carbon trading tax fraud. While a few profiteers will amass carbon trading fortunes, these schemes will not impact the climate in any meaningful way. Whether conducted legally or illegally, all carbon trading is a waste and a scam which cries out to be halted.

Government eyes crippling climate-control measures

CFACT in the Washington Times: EPA is ready to unleash its first wave of carbon-dioxide regulations. Congress wants to tax hydrocarbons and carbon-dioxide. The UN is trying to devise a new treaty to regulate energy at the international level. Even one of these actions would send shock waves through the economy. All three would be devastating.

UN takes concrete steps toward global tax

In Doha, Qatar late Saturday delegates attending the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change took concrete steps toward a new global treaty to address global warming that will transform the economic structure of the world with a new global tax. To be completed by 2015, the UN expects every nation to implement it by 2020, even though the globe has not warmed for the past 16 years.

New Kyoto commtiment period adopted. Developed nations assigned liability for climate “losses”

COP 18 voted just minutes ago to create a "Doha Climate Gateway" and agreed to a second commitment period for the Kyoto protocol. The U.S. remains out of the protocol, now joined by Russia, Japan and Canada. COP 18 inserted a "Loss & Damage Mechanism" into the final text which would require developed countries like the U.S. to pay poor nations for climate damages supposedly resulting from extreme weather events. The U.S. and the developed world must not empower the UN to order damages against our nations when severe weather strikes.

Deadlocked talks go into overtime

The Doha climate talks deadlocked Friday, went into overtime and reconvened Saturday at 7:30 AM for an unscheduled extra day. Climate funding and CO2 targets divide nations rich from poor. Who speaks for freedom?

The misdirected tears of the Philippines

This week Naderev M. Sano of the Phillipines delegation made a tear-filled speech to COP 18 in Doha, Qatar. In contrast to the delegates wrangling for national advantage, the shameless rent-seeking of the carbon profiteers and the left-wing agendas of the radical NGOs, Mr. Sano projected a refreshing sincerity. Sadly, he is sincerely wrong.

Behind the scenes at COP 18

The COP 18 chieftains have instituted a “paperless” policy, depriving delegates of daily programs and copies of negotiating documents that keep them relatively informed. And while this policy has allegedly “saved” 217 trees as of yesterday (I know this because the U.N. keeps a running tally prominently displayed on electronic billboards throughout the conference site), it has angered many who find this policy a means to keep the public in the dark about the current status of demands and negotiations. The conference was supposed to wrap Friday, but we're going into overtime.

Triple threat: UN, EPA and Congress

The triple threat to our energy, economy, jobs, living standards, health and welfare is justified by assertions that the actions will stabilize Earth’s climate and prevent a litany of global warming horrors. We need to educate the public and start the debate before our fate is sealed for us.

Extreme weather debunked

There would be extreme weather if humans lived on Earth or not. With an arguable less than one degree Celsius of total warming, with no warming for the last 16 years, claims that human prosperity are causing extreme weather events are propaganda -- nothing more. Climate Depot's Extreme Weather Report 2012 lays out the science, history and evidence in detail. The report thoroughly debunks extreme weather propaganda and lays open the hypocrisy of those who exploit natural tragedy for ideological gain.
