  • UN climate change body suffers mammoth European carbon fraud [Russia, Ukraine]

    The United Nations body that oversees greenhouse gas reductions is reeling from another cap-and-trade scandal that may have put 600 million tons of carbon emissions into the atmosphere — roughly speaking, the annual CO2 output of Canada or Britain — while the emissions were ostensibly suppressed, according to an independent study. In the process, the fraudsters, largely in Russia and Ukraine, were likely able to transfer credits for more than 400 million tons of their apparently bogus greenhouse savings by April 2015 into Europe's commercial carbon trading system — the largest in the world — thereby undermining that continent's ambitious...
  • The Climate Lab That Sits Empty

    BOULDER, Colo. - - Behind a locked door on the ground floor of a new University of Colorado science center here, a laboratory outfitted with specially reinforced concrete floors sits dark and empty, like a dining room set for a guest who never arrived. In this case, the no-show is a $2 million, 12-ton machine that is vital to addressing global warming. The machine, a high-precision accelerator mass spectrometer, uses nuclear physics to detect the presence of a rare, heavy isotope of carbon. It enables scientists to distinguish fossil fuel emissions from all other sources of carbon dioxide in the...
  • Rep. Robert Pittenger: In ditching Paris, Trump ignored the world's Chicken Littles

    Washington Examiner ^ | 6/9/17 | Rep Robert Pittenger (R-NC)
    The sky is falling! So goes the Left's reaction to President Trump's unequivocal declaration that the Paris Climate Accord is a "bad deal" for America. Thank you, Mr. President, for not following the lemmings over the cliff. We should not be surprised that other nations relentlessly advocated for confirmation of the accord. President Obama, true to his many other progressive policy initiatives, sought to commit the United States to the greatest transfer of wealth in the history of the world. The accord provided Obama justification for imposing punitive measures against the United States, but allowed China, India, and other developing...
  • Trump team is 'tongue-tied' on climate crisis: Al Gore

    ABC News ^ | 6/04/17 | NICKI ROSSOLL
    President Trump's administration is coming off as "tongue-tied and confused" about climate change because "the truth is still inconvenient" for companies and industries that emit heavy emissions that contribute to global warming, former Vice President Al Gore said. On "This Week" Sunday, Gore was asked by ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos about comments by EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt earlier on the show that it doesn't matter whether the president believes in man-made climate change because the U.S. is still leading by example in the world in its reduction of carbon dioxide emissions. "The administration comes off as tongue-tied and...

  • Michelle Stirling: Paris is about saving green investors, not the Earth

    Recently, it was revealed that Volkswagen had been duping diesel-emissions tests on some of its high-end environmentally friendly cars. People were outraged. The CEO resigned. About the same time, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley told the Alberta Chambers of Commerce that her province had better get its environmental house in order or it would have measures imposed upon it. She also said that Alberta has bad air.Really? I challenge that statement. In 2011, Canadas air was judged to be the third highest quality in the world. In 2006, Environment Canada reported that Red Deer was an unusual hot spot for poor...

    United Nations and its member regimes must sidestep the U.S. Constitution and the American peoples elected representatives to save the world from global warming, declared French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius (shown). Speaking to representatives of African governments and dictators during UN climate talks in Germany on Monday, the Socialist Party foreign policy chief explained that the U.S. Congress would refuse to approve the proposed planetary climate regime. As such, the emerging agreement, set to be finalized in Paris later this year, must be imposed on the United States by the Obama administration and the UN without the consent of...

    (CNN)NASA's rockets are astounding machines, capable of blasting into space at thousands of miles per hour and withstanding temperatures twice the melting point of steel. But they can't take off underwater. Rising sea levels caused by melting ice caps threaten to disrupt a handful of NASA launch sites along U.S. coastlines, the space agency warns. In the coming years, launch facilities at Florida's Kennedy Space Center and other places may need to be retrofitted or even moved inland, NASA says. "Every NASA center has its own set of vulnerabilities, and some are more at risk than others," NASA climatologist...

Many people are beginning to have the awakening, the fundamental paradigm shift needed to understand the rather complex construct of the GOPe machine. At the request of many people who are only recently accepting the scope of the ruse, that is the 2016 GOP primary, we are going to begin identifying the “tripwires” before they are crossed, and then highlighting the tripwire WHEN it is crossed. Yesterday we told you of a specific “tripwire” to look for. Today, we share what it looks like moments before it is...

    Europes leaders are about to consign the Earth to the risk of dangerous climate change, a UN expert says. Prof Jim Skea, a vice-chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, says the EUs plan to cut CO2 emissions 40% by 2030 is too weak. He says it will commit future governments to extraordinary and unprecedented emissions cuts. The Commission rejected the claim, saying the 40% target puts Europe on track for long-term climate goals. Prof Skea believes governments are setting targets by what appears to be politically achievable rather than what is necessary to transform the way we make...

    Obama Calls For Climate Change Action In California Commencement Speech Speaking at University of California, Irvine, president compares science denial to saying 'moon is made of cheese' Barack Obama yelled 'Zot, Zot, Zot', as he makes the symbols of the Anteater, the school's mascot. Barack Obama on Saturday repeated his recent appeals for action to prevent climate change, while speaking at the University of California, Irvine graduation ceremony. The question is not whether we need to act, the president said, at Angel Stadium in Anaheim. The overwhelming judgement of science, accumulated and reviewed over decades, has put the that to...

    I was perusing through the news and saw many articles on the horrific destruction the storm in the Philippines had wrought. As I reading through the stories at Google, yahoo News, the term 'Climate Negotiator' kept on appearing in article after article. Well, I had no idea what a Climate Negotiator is, does. I mean, trying to negotiate with the climate seems a sissyphean task if not the most mentally stable thing to attempt. I tried searching Google, Yahoo for some precise meaning, job description for a Climate Negotiator but information was far and few between. It seems it is...
  • Enron's Global Warming Scam Survived It's Bankruptcy

    Remember Enron, the corrupt firm whose failure should have disproved the myth "too big to fail", but didn't? At the time it was the seventh largest corporation. It's bankruptcy was the largest in history until Lehman Brothers failed. Incidentally, Lehman Brothers was also involved in carbon trading. Enron owed part of its early success to emissions trading. Basically emissions trading was established as a way for some companies to profit from pollution while allowing some companies to continue to produce the chemicals that can cause acid rain. Lawrence Solomon, executive director of Energy Probe and Urban Renaissance Institute, is reporting...

    The residents of California are about to become victims of what Weather Channel founder John Coleman has accurately called "the greatest scam in history". They will be paying higher energy bills to help carbon traders get richer. In the 1990's the corrupt Enron company began paying scientists and purported environmental groups to support the outright lie that slight increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide could increase atmospheric temperatures. Enron also supported politicians who were willing to go along with this scheme. Enron's goal was to get governments to establish a system for trading what the company called "carbon credits". Companies producing...

We very quickly need to see a carbon price in the order of 150 a tonne because thats the kind of level that drives the price signals that we really need, Yvo de Boer said on a phone line from Manila, in the Philippines. EU carbon allowances are currently trading at 6.60 per tonne ($9.49/ton), but a price of around 150...

    Der Spiegel ^ | 10/26/2012 | Joel Stonington
    Europes carbon market is in deep trouble and its not just environmentalists sounding the alarm. Back in April, the CEO of Shell said that the European Unions system for trading allowances for the emission of greenhouse gases was in danger. But thats about as direct as anyone will get in this world of bureaucratese. Most simply talk of price weakness (meaning that emission credits are absurdly cheap), a desire for long-term policy certainty (the system needs a fix!) and the need to restore confidence (and the fix has to come fast!) The simple fact is that the most important tool...
