The UN's climate action machinery is on the verge to collapse.
Every year the UN produces a climate action report just before the annual climate summit (this year COP 25 in Madrid). This time the UN greens have outdone themselves, but not in a good way for them.
CFACT's intense coverage of the COP 24 UN climate summit in Katowice, Poland was by far the most extensive of any I have seen and I have seen a lot. (Disclosure: this includes my articles, but there were may others as well.) The sidebar on the French protests against alarmist carbon taxes was especially timely.
There were two big ticket action items that, while not officially on the agenda, were still center stage. In fact they were all the green press talked about.
People resent being scammed and get angry when they realize their taxes and energy payments often line the pockets of climate activists, scientists, bureaucrats, politicians, and wind, solar and biofuel cronies.
Uh-oh, Greenpeace! Santa checked his list, he checked it twice, and you're on the naughty list...not nice!
Buried in the 133 pages of gobbledygook agreed to at last week's UN climate summit are two very dangerous provisions. These greatly advance the green cause known as "loss and damage."
The United States played a leading role in "writing the rule book" for the Paris climate agreement, but also made clear its intention to exit the agreement as soon as possible.
Hecklers protested the U.S. event on fossil fuels but nobody bothered the Africans when they promoted the role of oil and gas in national development.
Whether it’s global temperatures, changing weather patterns, Arctic, Antarctic or Greenland ice, hurricanes and tornados, wildfires, floods or droughts – or the need for and viability of renewable energy – deception, misrepresentation, disinformation and even fabrication are their stock in trade.
In the audience at CFACT's Poland forum were veterans of the Solidarity movement who freed Poland from Socialism thirty years ago. They do not want to go back. They turned this scholarly forum into a lively discussion of energy, global warming and Polish independence. We were honored.
Two groups showed up at UN COP 24 in Katowice, Poland - one predicting a catastrophic disaster and the other with a message of hope and encouragement.
Many groups at the UN climate conference have no clear connection to what the UN calls "climate action," but who can say they shouldn't still get some of the money? Who can resist a slice of the trillion dollar climate finance pie?
The UN climate conference in Poland is riddled with a mix of bizarre and eyebrow-raising incidents.
The United Nations gave explicit permission to left-wing youth groups to disrupt a presentation by the American delegation on energy issues at COP 24, the UN conference on climate change in Katowice, Poland.
