It's becoming apparent that so long as there's taxpayer money and nice venues to hold conferences, there's probably going to be no end to these regularly scheduled gatherings of international bureaucrats attempting to clamp down on our economy and regulate the weather.
Exploiting tragic natural weather events to push global warming at ICLEI.
The battle over global warming policy is often viewed as taking place in Washington, D.C. and the UN. But another front that receives scant attention, though is no less important, is in city halls around the globe.
Property rights vs. UN Agenda 21 ICLEI attendees dismayed over growing grassroots opposition
Can Obama & Kerry jump start the UN climate process? CFACT sends delegation to the UN Climate Summit and ICLEI forum in Bonn
Lawmakers in states across the nation are thinking twice about policies that drive up the cost of power. In fact, according to a recent report, fourteen states with renewable energy mandates are currently considering laws that repeal of significantly roll back provisions that require utilities to build or purchase more renewable power. An additional eight states considered such measures last year.
Much of the scary climate stuff gleefully trumpeted by the global media comes from the UN’s IPCC, a highly politicized organization that does not actually carry out any original climate research. Instead, it simply issues assessments based upon supposedly independent surveys of published research. However, some of its most influential conclusions that are summarized in its reports have neither been based upon truly independent research, nor properly vetted through accepted peer- review processes.
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.
Scientists and policy experts just completed a European climate conference organized to coincide with the UN conference in Doha, Qatar. The warming propaganda industry likes to push the idea that all scientists back their ideology. Nothing could be further from the truth as demonstrated by this and other scientific gatherings.
As the Qatar climate summit heats up, Germany's "Die Zeit" calls CFACT's Marc Morano the climate "Godfather" -- tries to do a hit piece on him, but Climate Depot shoots back. “It's just business, nothing personal...”
Join CFACT Europe at the EIKE climate conference in Munich, Germany, November 30th and December 1st, 2012. Discuss climate science and policy with scientists, scholars and policy experts as they gather just days before the UN climate summit in Qatar.
A few years ago, Germany was “fully committed” to the EU’s goal of ending fossil fuel use. It was building lots of wind turbines, and even some solar farms despite its often-cloudy skies. After the tsunami, Prime Minister Angela Merckel announced Germany would phase out its nuclear plants quickly, implying more power from renewables.
EIKE hosts a climate conference in Berlin on the very eve of the UN's Rio+20 conference on sustainable development. More information and sign up here.
The party season has started. In about a month, Rio will be crowded by politicians and hooligans for the mega environmental gathering, but allready next week, good old Hotel Maritim in Bonn will fill up with the usual bunch for yet another climate conference. Nothing wrong with Bonn, or Maritim for that matter, but don't people get bored? From the UNFCCC invitation: "The 36th sessions of the Subsidiary Body for Implementation (SBI) and of the Subsidiary Body for Scientific and Technological Advice (SBSTA), the fifteenth session of the Ad Hoc Working Group on Long-term Cooperative Action...". That's just for starters, but [...]
by Einar Du Rietz Wiser from the Copenhagen hysteria, all sides - except President Zuma, who is forced to show some enthusiasm, and in a way The Holy Father, who wants a "credible" outcome (nothing wrong with credibility) - seem to agree that COP17 in Durban wont accomplish anything. As for me, I'm content with that, but it's still fun to watch the show, including side appaerances from all places. Guess we can look forward to a lot of that. In the UK, PM Cameron's "Green Guru", Steve Hilton suddenly comes out as a realist, saying he doubts the entire Global Warming idea. Reports the [...]
