Delingpole: Trump Vindicated as Paris Climate Agreement Unravels

Posted by M. C. Fox on September 6, 2018

Western countries don’t want to stump up for what is essentially an attempted shakedown by poorer countries demanding more handouts in the name of “climate justice.”

The Paris Climate Agreement is a dead non-binding treaty walking. All the signatories know this, none of them will admit it. So instead, we have to endure the ritual spectacle of UN delegates racking up yet more air miles and dumping their carbon footprint on a new location in order to wail hysterically that much, much more needs to be done to save the planet from the greatest threat evah.

This week the UN’s clown caravan has moved to Bangkok, Thailand – the preliminary to an even bigger meeting, COP24, in December in Katowice, Poland.

As the South China Morning Post reports, the auguries aren’t good:

Time is running out to save the Paris Agreement, United Nations climate experts warned Tuesday at a key Bangkokmeeting, as rich nations were accused of shirking their responsibility for environmental damage.

That’s because – just as they were in Paris 2015 – the negotiations are caught between a rock and a hard place.

Western countries don’t want to stump up for what is essentially an attempted shakedown by poorer countries demanding more handouts in the name of “climate justice.”

Developing economies – as they have cunningly managed to designate themselves – like India and China and the rest of the BRICs have absolutely no interest in hampering their economies with carbon emissions cuts, not least because they recognise that “global warming” is just a scam invented by Euro Weenies who want to decide how the world is run.

Delingpole: Now YouTube Is Adding ‘Fact Checks’ to Videos that Question ‘Climate Change’

Posted by M. C. Fox on August 10, 2018

And what better way to silence your opponents by declaring their articles and videos “fake news” – and hiding the truth in the guise of public interest?

https://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/08/10/big-tech-starts-to-censor-climate-skeptics/

by James Delingpole

And so it begins: YouTube is now adding “fact checks” to videos which question the man-made global warming scare narrative.

According to Buzzfeed News:

YouTube is now adding fact checks to videos that question climate change, BuzzFeed News has confirmed, as a part of its ongoing effort to combat the rampant misinformation and conspiratorial fodder on its platform.
On July 9, the company added a blurb of text underneath some videos about climate change, which provided a scientifically accurate explainer. The text comes from the Wikipedia entry for global warming and states that “multiple lines of scientific evidence show that the climate system is warming.”

This new feature follows YouTube’s announcement in March that it would place descriptions from Wikipedia and Encyclopedia Britannica next to videos on topics that spur conspiracy theories, such as the moon landing and the Oklahoma City bombing. In doing the same for climate videos, the company seems to be wading into more fraught and complex intellectual territory.

Sure, in many ways it’s a trivial and pathetic gesture. Quoting Wikipedia as your credible source is a bit like citing CNN as the go-to site for all the latest info on Donald Trump. And anyway, that “scientifically accurate explainer”  is at best vague, at worst far more misleading than the videos it is supposed to be “fact checking.”… Read the rest of this entry »

Global Warming Has Made Gulf Stream Slowest in 1,600 Years, and That Could Impact Our Weather

Posted by M. C. Fox on April 17, 2018

WeatherUnderground-Taking care of busine$$

If we do not rapidly stop global warming…

How? By telling the sun to stop cooling? Oh it’s already doing that.

“We are only beginning to understand the consequences of this unprecedented process –

But they have the cause down pat-Man made global warming.

A separate study, also released Wednesday in the journal Nature, claims the 150-year slowdown of the AMOC is a result of natural changes, not man-made climate change. But both conclude the slowdown is occurring, and it could impact our weather in the coming years.

For years, scientists have studied a spot in the North Atlantic Ocean that has bucked the trend of a warming world. Now, they know what impact this colder-than-average region is having on the Gulf Stream. Read the rest of this entry »

Scientific American Says ‘Chill Out’ over Global Warming

Posted by M. C. Fox on March 13, 2018

The answer is likely somewhere in the middle, wherever that is…

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/03/12/in-startling-reversal-scientific-american-counsels-people-to-chill-out-over-global-warming/

Apocalyptic scenarios attributed to global warming are simply false and the human race will be able to accommodate whatever “climate change” throws at us, claims a remarkably sober new essay in Scientific American.

The essay, penned by John Horgan, the director of the Center for Science Writings at the Stevens Institute of Technology, analyzes two recent reports by “ecomodernists” who reject climate panic and frame the question of climate change and humanity’s ability to cope with it in radically new terms.

One of the reports, a work called “Enlightened Environmentalism” by Harvard iconoclast Steven Pinker, urges people to regain some much-needed perspective on climate, especially in the context of the overwhelming material benefits of industrialization. Read the rest of this entry »

Schwarzenegger used private jet for daily commutes to California’s governor’s mansion

Posted by M. C. Fox on March 12, 2018

Schwarzenegger is out AlGoring Al Gore.

http://www.climatedepot.com/2018/03/12/schwarzenegger-used-private-jet-for-daily-commutes-to-californias-governors-mansion

Arnold Schwarzenegger is going after modern energy use claiming specifically that he wants to take oil companies to court “for knowingly killing people all over the world” through alleged “global warming” impacts. See: Schwarzenegger to Sue Big Oil for ‘First Degree Murder’

But before Schwarzenegger files his court case against oil companies, he may have to prepare to appear as a defendant in his own case! Read the rest of this entry »

Delingpole: NOAA Caught Adjusting Big Freeze out of Existence

Posted by M. C. Fox on February 20, 2018

Good enough for government work.

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2018/02/20/delingpole-noaa-caught-adjusting-big-freeze-out-of-existence/

by JAMES DELINGPOLE

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has yet again been caught exaggerating  ‘global warming’ by fiddling with the raw temperature data.

This time, that data concerns the recent record-breaking cold across the northeastern U.S. which NOAA is trying to erase from history.

If you believe NOAA’s charts, there was nothing particularly unusual about this winter’s cold weather which caused sharks to freeze in the ocean and iguanas to drop out of trees.

Here is NOAA’s January 2018 chart for Northeast U.S. – an area which includes New England along with NY, PA, NJ, DE and MD. Read the rest of this entry »

Cleaning Up Air Pollution May Strengthen Global Warming

Posted by M. C. Fox on January 22, 2018

Uh Oh! Someone forgot that the science is settled!

Using Algorean obfuscation to keep that grant money rolling in.

What about solar cooling and low sunspot activity?

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/cleaning-up-air-pollution-may-strengthen-global-warming/

Pollution in the atmosphere is having an unexpected consequence, scientists say—it’s helping to cool the climate, masking some of the global warming that’s occurred so far.

That means efforts worldwide to clean up the air may cause an increase in warming, as well as other climate effects, as this pollution disappears… Read the rest of this entry »

People of the Lie – by Robert Ringer

Posted by M. C. Fox on December 4, 2017

That said, I would suggest it’s a good idea to keep in mind Ronald Reagan’s admonition that government is not the solution to our problem, but, rather, government is the problem.  Then, once this reality is firmly entrenched in your mind, the challenge is to plan your life accordingly.

http://robertringer.com/people-of-the-lie/

The most masterful perpetrators of The Big Lie are those who wear personality masks intended to deceive.  They are, in the words of M. Scott Peck, “People of the Lie.”

A few examples include:

  • Media personalities who posit themselves as professional commentators while relentlessly pushing their hate-inspired agendas. They are, in fact, People of the Lie.
  • Politicians who cast themselves as champions of “women’s rights,” defenders of the “middle class,” or protectors of “the poor” in an effort to win votes. They are, in fact, People of the Lie.
  • Those who justify the use of violence by claiming to be in hot pursuit of “social justice.” They are, in fact, People of the Lie.
  • Et al.

Al Gore’s New Group Demands $15 Trillion To Fight Global Warming

Posted by M. C. Fox on April 25, 2017

Read more: http://dailycaller.com/2017/04/25/al-gores-new-group-demands-15-trillion-to-fight-global-warming/#ixzz4fIMZpWuJ

Strictly out of the goodness of his pea pickin’ Kentucky heart, Al wants to save us from ourselves like every good progressive.

The Energy Transitions Commission’s (ETC) report claims “additional investments of around $300-$600 billion per annum do not pose a major macroeconomic challenge,” which they say will help the world meet the goals laid out in the Paris agreement.

ETC is made up of energy executives, activist leaders and investment bankers, including former Vice President Al Gore, who would no doubt get a piece of the trillions of dollars they are calling for. Read the rest of this entry »

Global Warming is About Destroying Capitalism? | Armstrong Economics

Posted by M. C. Fox on February 4, 2017

https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/world-news/climate/global-warming-is-about-destroying-capitalism/

This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution.”
Dick Fox, my friend and Chairman of Temple, began to lead them on to get the truth behind their movement. Low and behold, they too admitted it was not about the environment, but to reduce population growth. Dick then asked them, “Whose grandchild are we trying to prevent from being born? Your’s or mine?”

And you thought eugenics was a made up word from a Star Trek movie. It has been around a long time. Mrs. Bubba’s hero Margaret Sanger was a eugenicist. The government was to decide who was undesirable and a candidate for sterilization. Environmentalism, begun by groups like the Club of Rome, was nothing more than a new false front program to control how the unwashed masses, you and me, should live. 

This what the Progressive movement is about. Their deciding what is best for the rest of us.
