    It is a slam-dunk certainty that American mainstream media will seize upon a recent story in the Los Angeles Times, “Southern California sets all-time heat records amid broiling conditions,” as justification for its continuing support of the contested theory of man-caused global warming. It has already happened with a Yahoo News story claiming that the new temperature records world-wide prove man causes climate change.But there are problems in pursuing that path.First, days that reach and exceed 117-degree temperatures have been known to happen for a very long time in the interior basin of southern California, sometimes referred to as “Death...

    According to a survey published by Gallup, there are 36 economic and non-economic issues on the minds of Americans. No one mentioned climate change. As you might expect, economic issues were in the forefront of the voters' minds. But there are some interesting results nonetheless:

    The bestselling computer game of 2018 is called Far Cry 5. It features a militant doomsday cult that takes over parts of America and tries to forcibly convince everyone that the world is about to end. That could never happen for real in America, could it? In a related story, a group of mostly teenage girls have formed a group with the doomsday-ish name "Zero Hour" because of their conviction that global warming is soon to destroy the world. Do you think it's too much to compare them to the militants in Far Cry 5? Here's a quote from their...

    Plumbing the cesspool of the hard-left mind. To suffer through Roy Scrantons New York Times oped, Raising My Child in a Doomed World, is to come away wondering how a guy so hang-dog depressing and lacking in discernable masculine qualities managed to attract a woman -- sorry, a partner in Scranton-speak -- at all, let alone got her to procreate with him. He tells us the day his daughter was born he cried looking out the hospital window with her at the rows of cars in the hospital parking lot, the strip mall across the street, the box stores and...

    Want to get a whole bunch of people to really, really care about climate change and rising sea levels? Tell them their internet is at risk. In a new study, researchers at the University of WisconsinMadison and the University of Oregon found that thousands of miles of buried fiber optic cable are at risk of drowning under the rising seas. This isnt something that will happen in the distant future, but could be a reality in just 15 years, the study suggests. Better backup your Tumblr. The peer-reviewed study combined data from the Internet Atlas, the map that keeps track...

    Did climate change already kill all the aliens we've been searching for? According to astrophysicist Adam Frank, it's certainly a possibility and whether humans are doomed to the same fate may already be out of our hands. Frank, a professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Rochester in New York, is the lead author of a new paper published May 1 in the journal Astrobiology that aims to take what Frank calls a "10,000-light-year" view of anthropogenic (human-caused) climate change. Using mathematical models based on the disappearance of a real-life lost civilization here on Earth (the former...

    A report from Scientific American said there are problems this year for the species of shorebirds that each year descend on the Arctic to mate and raise chicks. Its because the reproduction happens during the summer, and because of extensive July snow this year, theres been no summer. The report said the frozen precipitation sealed the birds off from food and nesting sites. Without these key resources avian migrants to the region will not reproduce in 2018, experts say. The report elaborated that snowmelt usually allows shorebirds to begin nesting on eastern Greenlands treeless tundra during the first half of...

    Once more, science provides bad news for global warming alarmists. U.S. CO2 levels again declined during 2017, despite overall global output again rising. Credit U.S. fracking and the natural gas boom. But don't worry: the hysteria won't end. The new report, based on U.S. data, shows clearly the U.S. continuing downward trend. "The U.S. emitted 15.6 metric tons of CO2 per person in 1950," wrote the Daily Caller. "After rising for decades, it's declined in recent years to 15.8 metric tons per person in 2017, the lowest measured levels in 67 years." That's right. 67 years. Green groups and leftist...

    Eitor's Note: The following is an excerpt from author Marc Morano's new book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change. If you cant indoctrinate adults on climate change, who is a more willing and pliable audience than children? John Kerry signed the Paris climate pact at the UN with his two-year-old granddaughter seated on his lap for full effect. Kids from kindergarten through college are prime targets for the climate change fear promoters propaganda. Politicians, academia, Hollywood, and global warming activists have focused on kids, feeding them a steady diet of fear and doom, using vulnerable children to promote climate...

    A United Nations official is calling for an ark to save the world from global warming. Climate-change skeptic Marc Morano of the Climate Depot site noted Espinosa urged the world to make the fundamental, transformative changes necessary to fight global warming. The Vaticans International Conference was titled Saving our Common Home and the Future of Life on Earth. If we truly want to make the fundamental, transformative changes necessary to combat climate change, perhaps what we need then is not a physical ark, but an ark of ambition for #climateaction, she said on social media. Espinosa echoed former U.N. climate...

    A self-styled adventurer is to spend a year living on a melting iceberg off the coast of Greenland to try to draw attention to climate change. In spring next year Alex Bellini, 36, will find a suitable iceberg off the north west of Greenland where he will remain until it melts. He hopes his stunt will raise awareness of the impact of global warming, which the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recently warned is 'widespread and consequential'.

    Pope Francis urged governments on Friday to make good on their commitments to curb global warming, warning that climate change, continued unsustainable development and rampant consumption threatens to turn the Earth into a vast pile of rubble, deserts and refuse. Francis made the appeal at a Vatican conference marking the third anniversary of his landmark environmental encyclical Praise Be. The document, meant to spur action at the 2015 Paris climate conference, called for a paradigm shift in humanitys relationship with Mother Nature. n his remarks, Francis urged governments to honor their Paris commitments and said institutions like the IMF and...

    An Iranian general has accused Israel of stealing its clouds in order to manipulate weather and cause drought in the Islamic Republic. Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali, head of Iran's Civil Defence Organisation said that the changing climate in Iran is 'suspect'. 'Foreign interference is suspected to have played a role in climate change,' said Jalali, who insisted results from an Iranian scientific study 'confirm' the claim. 'Israel and another country in the region have joint teams which work to ensure clouds entering Iranian skies are unable to release rain,' he said. 'On top of that, we are facing the...

    Researchers released a report this week revealing “ultralow surface temperatures” in East Antarctica that surpass the coldest temperatures ever recorded on the earth’s surface. The lowest measured air temperature on earth is −89.2 °C (−129 F) on 23 July 1983, observed at Vostok Station in Antarctica, but new data published in Geophysical Research Letters this week, has found that some 100 different locations on the East Antarctic Plateau reached temperatures of -98° C (-144° F) during the Antarctic polar night between 2004–2016. A team from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder have...

Joe Crowley in the working-class New York district stretching from the Bronx to Queens is likely to propel her avowedly left-wing platform into the Democratic mainstream as the 2018 midterm elections heat up. But her detailed proposals to deal with climate change could prove among the most influential at a time when the Democrats have failed to rally around any policy that could feasibly reduce greenhouse gas emissions dramatically enough to make a difference. Ocasio-Cortez outlined plans to transition the United States to a 100 percent renewable energy system by 2035....
