  • Obama’s legacy on climate is at stake in Paris talks (how many times can left play "legacy" card?)

    President Barack Obama heads to a terror-scarred Paris Sunday night to tackle one of the most important priorities of his second term — climate change. Obama has been laying the groundwork for years ahead of the United Nation’s two-week conference on countering climate change, where nearly 200 countries will be hammering out a pact to cut global emissions of heat-trapping gases. Using executive power, the president has moved the U.S. toward lowering carbon emissions, a key step in building credibility for his efforts to coax China, Brazil and other developing nations to do the same. The Paris conference may help...

    “Look, I think it is absolutely vital for every country, every leader to send a signal that the viciousness of a handful of killers does not stop the world from doing vital business,” Obama said, when asked on Sunday whether the attacks would have an effect on the mood of the summit. Obama has repeatedly emphasized the damaging effect that climate change has on national security in preparation for the summit. During a Coast Guard graduation speech in May, Obama emphasized that the recruits would be facing the threat global warming. “Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security,...

    At the end of this month 40,000 politicians, officials, green activists, lobbyists and journalists from 195 nations will converge outside Paris – at Europe’s largest airport reserved only for private jets – for a conference that they hope will change the world. Their declared aim is to agree a treaty committing everyone to such a massive cut in their emissions of greenhouse gases that this might somehow prevent the earth’s temperatures rising more than 2 degrees C higher than they were when the climate began naturally warming again two centuries ago. The chief obstacle to such an agreement is exactly...

    President Obama said Monday that the Keystone pipeline and other such fossil-fuel development projects would make Earth "uninhabitable." "We've got to lead by example, because ultimately, if we're going to prevent large parts of the Earth from becoming not only inhospitable but uninhabitable, then we're going to have to keep some fossil fuels in the ground rather than burn them," Mr. Obama told cheering grassroots supporters at a gathering in Washington.

    The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is under investigation for suspicion of fudging its data to support global warming alarmism — again. NOAA is refusing to hand over data, including e-mail communications, subpoenaed by a congressional committee that is tasked with overseeing the multi-billion dollar agency. In July, Representative Lamar Smith (R-Texas; shown), chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, asked NOAA to provide his committee with the data. On October 13, because the agency had not been fully forthcoming, the committee issued a subpoena to NOAA Administrator Kathryn Sullivan. On November 4, Chairman Smith warned...

    China, the world's leading emitter of greenhouse gases from coal, is burning far more annually than previously thought, according to new government data. The finding could vastly complicate the already difficult efforts to limit global warming. Even for a country of China's size and opacity, the scale of the correction is immense. China has been consuming as much as 17 percent more coal each year than reported, according to the new government figures. By some initial estimates, that could translate to almost a billion more tons of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere annually in recent years, more than all...

Klein's statement is perfectly in line with Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of United Nation's Framework Convention on Climate Change, and in fact is almost an echo. Figueres acknowledged earlier this year that the environmental activists' goal is not to spare the...

    A NEW Nasa study of the Antarctic from space has thrown the case for climate change into disarray after finding that more NEW new ice has formed at the Antarctic than has been lost to its thinning glaciers. The US space agency research claims an increase in Antarctic snow accumulation that began 10,000 years ago is "currently adding enough ice to the continent to outweigh the increased losses from melting glaciers. Global warming theories have been thrown into doubt after Nasa also claimed current horror predictions into future sea-level rises may not be as severe. Major studies previously made the...

Kerry said the question was "right on point," and although the term is a new one, he expects it's "just a matter of time" before it is incorporated into international policy. "We have climate refugees today," Kerry told a town hall meeting on the sidelines of an Oceans conference.

    A MATHEMATICAL discovery by Perth-based electrical engineer Dr David Evans may change everything about the climate debate, on the eve of the UN climate change conference in Paris next month. A former climate modeller for the Government’s Australian Greenhouse Office, with six degrees in applied mathematics, Dr Evans has unpacked the architecture of the basic climate model which underpins all climate science.He found that, while the underlying physics of the model is correct, it had been applied incorrectly.He fixed two errors and the new corrected model finds the climate’s sensitivity to carbon dioxide (CO2) is much lower than was thought.It...

    This is excellent. Ted Cruz masterfully debates Sierra Club President, Aaron Mair, on Climate Change, asking him about the objective data that shows no significant warming trend in the last 18 years. But Mair only wanted to focus on a study that he agrees with, that says 97 percent of scientists say the earth is cooking or something and claims the science is settled and no longer up for debate. It was pathetic. Cruz took him apart, exposing the fact that he doesnt know what the heck hes talking about, and then schooled a Democrat who objected. Watch:

    Finally, we may be getting some cosmic justice for the gang of warmists who have spread hysteria over their shaky theory of global warming. Owing to an outrageous act of witch-hunting dissenters, a congressional investigation has begun, and who knows what it will uncover?

    The plan by climate alarmists to have other scientists imprisoned for their global warming skepticism is backfiring horribly, and the chief alarmist is now facing a House investigation into what has been called the largest science scandal in US history.

    Earlier in the interview, Goodell has used a rude word. But its allowed the president brushes it off with a smile because it reflects the seriousness of the terrible shit (oops, now Im at it) in which we find ourselves. Doesnt it scare the shit out of you sometimes? Goodell asks the president. (He means climate change). Part of my job is to read stuff that terrifies me all the time, replies the president. That, there, folks is the non-denial denial. What Obama is doing there, as above, is leaving open the possibility in the viewers mind that,...
  • Pope's climate push is 'raving nonsense' without population control, says top US scientist

    One of Americas leading scientists has dismissed as raving nonsense the popes call for action on climate change so long as the leader of the worlds 1 billion Catholics rejects the need for population control. In a commentary in the journal Nature Climate Change, Paul Ehrlich, a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment, argues that Pope Francis is simply wrong in trying to fight climate change without also addressing the additional strain on global resources from population rise. Thats raving nonsense, Ehrlich told the Guardian. He is right on some things but he is just...

    According to the experts, any day now a civil war will break out in California. Its simple deductive reasoning. Droughts cause civil wars and California is having one doozy of a drought. Ergo, there will be a civil war in California. Thats what former Maryland governor and Democratic presidential candidate Martin OMalley claims. Well, not about California (just yet), but about Syria: One of the things that preceded the failure of the nation-state of Syria and the rise of ISIS was the effect of climate change and the mega-drought that affected that region, wiped out farmers, drove people to cities,...

    It is, for our home planet, an extremely warm year. Indeed, last week we learned from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration that the first eight months of 2015 were the hottest such stretch yet recorded for the globes surface land and oceans, based on temperature records going back to 1880. Its just the latest evidence that we are, indeed, on course for a record-breaking warm year in 2015. Yet, if you look closely, theres one part of the planet that is bucking the trend. In the North Atlantic Ocean south of Greenland and Iceland, the ocean surface has seen...

    GOP frontrunner Donald Trump disagrees with Pope Francis statements on climate change. Trump tells CNN he simply doesnt believe in it. The Pope, in his speech at the White House, said climate change is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation. Trump was asked during his interview if he agreed with the Pope on climate change.
