    Perhaps one of the greatest oddities of the past Democratic debates was Bernie Sanders insistence that climate change has fueled the growth of terrorism. Apparently we’re supposed to believe that ISIS will lay down their guns once the Earth cools by another degree Fahrenheit. Mockery aside – we’re living in the most peaceful times in human history. It may not seem that way because of what we see on the news, but violence has shown an enormous decline over the past few thousand years of human history. This of course occurred while the planet is supposedly becoming ever closer to...
  • Obama Goes On A ‘Green’ Spending Spree Ahead Of UN Summit

    The Department of Energy (DOE) announced $125 million in new spending Monday to fund 41 green energy projects ahead of the United Nations global warming summit set to take place next week. DOE is funding dozens of green technologies through the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy, or ARPA-E, program to find technological solutions to fighting global warming. ARPA-E projects are ones the government thinks show promise, but aren’t yet commercially viable. “As we look beyond COP21, the energy technologies the Department of Energy invests in today will provide the solutions needed to combat climate change and develop a global low-carbon economy...

    Presidential candidate Ted Cruz, R-Tex., criticized President Obama for being "out of touch" for comments he made Tuesday suggesting that stopping climate change would send a strong message to the Islamic State that Western values cannot be deterred by terrorism. Cruz, speaking to Fox News' Megyn Kelly, condemned Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry for telling Americans "that they think essentially your SUV in the driveway is a greater threat to our security than is ISIS, than is a nuclear Iran and it makes no sense whatsoever." "You know what would be a real rebuke to ISIS? When we...

    As Americans prepare for their Thanksgiving Day feasts, there's an issue on the horizon that could make that turkey more expensive: taxing meat to reduce climate change. Livestock is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, adding about the same amount of emissions as that of all the world's vehicles, according to a new report from the U.K. policy institute Chatham House. But many consumers aren't aware of the link between their dinner plates and climate change, the report notes. At the same time, meat consumption is forecast to increase by 76 percent over the next several decades, thanks to...

    It was perhaps not Eric Andrieu's most stately speech in the European Parliament. But when the center-left French MEP tabled a last-minute change to new air pollution rules, he did manage to elicit laughter and applause from several of his colleagues. "At the risk of disappointing you, mister president, the European Parliament does not yet have the power to stop cows from farting or burping," said Andrieu, in Wednesday 28 October's plenary session. The vice-chair of the EP's agriculture committee heard many of his fellow MEPs laugh, and smiled. [...] After Andrieu made his fart joke, MEPs passed his amendment,...

While standing alongside French president François Hollande in a joint news conference at the White House, Obama explained that his attendance at next month’s World Climate Summit will put ISIS in its place. “Next week I will be joining President Hollande and other...

    Studies suggest consensus among scientists is as high as 97 percent.In the face of warmer air and ocean temperatures, rising sea levels, stronger storms and an increased risk of drought, fire and flood, scientists agree -- quite overwhelmingly -- that climate change is very real. In fact, studies suggest that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists believe climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities. Yet it's not hard to find yourself in a spirited back-and-forth with the so-called "deniers" -- those who continue to reject mainstream climate science.

The State Department warned that groups like ISIS, al Qaeda and Boko Haram "continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions."...

    GENEVA, Nov 23 (Reuters) - Weather-related disasters such as floods and heatwaves have occurred almost daily in the past decade, almost twice as often as two decades ago, with Asia being the hardest hit region, a U.N. report said on Monday. While the report authors could not pin the increase wholly on climate change, they did say that the upward trend was likely to continue as extreme weather events increased. Since 1995, weather disasters have killed 606,000 people, left 4.1 billion injured, homeless or in need of aid, and accounted for 90 percent of all disasters, it said. A recent...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | Thursday, November 12, 2015 | Rasmussen
    Global warming advocates are calling for the prosecution of groups who disagree with them, and New York State has taken it a step further by investigating Exxon Mobil for refusing to play ball with the popular scientific theory. But 68% of Likely U.S. Voters oppose the government investigating and prosecuting scientists and others including major corporations who question global warming. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 17% favor such prosecutions. Fifteen percent (15%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Just over one-in-four Democrats (27%), however, favor prosecuting those who don’t agree with global warming....
  • Promised Greenhouse Gas Emissions Cuts: A Useless Gesture

    Environment: What would happen if every country taking part in the United Nations climate summit in Paris later this month cut its greenhouse gas emissions as they have pledged? The short — and long — answer is: nothing. The goal of the Paris talks is "to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below" 2 degrees Celsius, or 36 Fahrenheit. To reach this, countries have submitted their "intended nationally determined contributions," which outline how much they pledge to cut their greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S., for example, promises that by 2025...

    Coach is Right ^ | 11/12/15 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    Yes of course we know the media is an enemy of freedom. Their lies prove that every day; but sometimes it gets a little too old and tired to sit by and make believe we don’t know they are liars. A recent insane lie from the New York Times (naturally) breathlessly announced not only is Greenland melting but when it does fade away, the worldwide sea level will increase by 20 feet! This would, of course, effectively bring about the end of the world for all but a few backward tribes living in mountains somewhere. This claim doesn’t come from...

    The New American ^ | November 11, 2015 | William F. Jasper
    Global-warming alarmists are turning up the heated rhetoric as the UN's Paris "Climate Summit" approaches, claiming that the supposed "crisis" of global warming is “the equivalent of war,” even though there has been no measurable warming of the planet for the past nearly 19 years. "It is life on our planet itself which is at stake," French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius declared on November 8 at a press conference in Paris, as foreign ministers and climate envoys from around the world met to prepare for the United Nations global summit on climate change

    New studies flip climate-change notions upside down The sun will go into "hibernation" mode around 2030, and it has already started to get sleepy. At the Royal Astronomical Society's annual meeting in July, Professor Valentina Zharkova of Northumbria University in the UK confirmed it - the sun will begin its Maunder Minimum (Grand Solar Minimum) in 15 years. Other scientists had suggested years ago that this change was imminent, but Zharkova's model is said to have near-perfect accuracy. So what is a "solar minimum"? Our sun doesn't maintain a constant intensity. Instead, it cycles in spans of approximately 11 years....

    Investors Business Daily ^ | 11/10/2015 | Editorial
    Climate Change: Researchers from developed nations who insist that humans are warming the planet have inadvertently given Third World nations a weapon to shake down capitalist nations. Or was that the plan all along? Third World nations haven't developed their economies because their governments are often run by con men, thieves, killers and tyrants. While these governments never recognize that they are the problem, they do know an opportunity for a racket when they see one. Extortion often comes with a veneer of legitimacy, though, and that's what we have in a manifesto produced by Bolivia. It is ostensibly that...
  • What’s Going on in Antarctica? Is the Ice Melting or Growing?

    EcoWatch ^ | November 10, 2015 | na
    Last week a study was published in the Journal of Glaciology by a group of NASA researchers reporting that satellite data shows that, as a whole, Antarctica has been gaining-rather than losing-ice mass during the past two or more decades. So was NASA and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) wrong about Antarctica's ice loss? Is the Antarctic ice growing? The short answer is best summarized by the title of Andrew Freedman's article on Mashable (which everyone should read): "No, NASA has not reversed itself on the dangerous melting of Antarctica." However, in less enlightened (or maybe honest) circles,...

    When PEOPLE heard that Al Gore is planning to stay up all night Friday with Duran Duran for a 24-hour telethon on the climate crisis, we couldn't resist asking the former Vice President: "So, are you, ahem, hungry like the wolf for action on climate change?" "Is this a literary reference?" Gore asked. Gently reminded that it is, actually, the British band's hit single from 1982, Gore – who counts among his personal friends the likes of Bono and Jon Bon Jovi – quickly recovered. And with a nod toward another hot artist taking part in the Nov. 13 and...
