    Germany’s Vice Chancellor, Sigmar Gabriel, has indicated that the country will abandon its commitment to reducing CO2 emissions by 40 percent by 2020, from a 1990 base level. In doing so he has won the ongoing clash with his own environmental minister Barbara Hendricks over energy policy, telling her that he will tolerate no further resistance to the change of direction, according to Der Speigel.
  • The record of recent Man-made CO2 emissions: 1965 -2013 (Graphs at link)

    Watts Up With That? ^ | AUGUST 3, 2014 | By Ed Hoskins
    The following calculations and graphics are based on information on national CO2 emission levels worldwide published by BP[1]in June 2014 for the period from 1965 up until 2013. The data is well corroborated by previous similar datasets published by the CDIAC, Guardian [2] and Google up until 2009 [3]. These notes and figures provide a short commentary on that CO2 emissions history. The contrast between the developed and developing worlds is stark in terms of their history of CO2 emissions and the likely prognosis for their future CO2 output. Since 1980 CO2 emissions from the developed world have shown virtually...
  • Carbon Benefits Exceed Costs By Up to 500:1

    Editor's Note: This column was co-authored by Roger Bezdek. The Environmental Protection Agency, other government agencies and various scientists contend that fossil fuels and carbon dioxide emissions are causing dangerous global warming and climate change. They use this claim to justify repressive regulations for automobiles, coal-fired power plants and other facilities powered by hydrocarbon energy. Because these rules are costing millions of jobs and billions of dollars, a federal Interagency Working Group (IWG) devised the “social cost of carbon” concept – which attaches arbitrary monetary values to the alleged impacts of using hydrocarbons and emitting carbon dioxide. SCC estimates...
  • Global warming alarmism detached from reality, still

    08/20/2012 1:54:20 PM PDT · by Mark Landsbaum · 3 replies
    You may have noticed the recent hype about global warming, a hot summer, looming devastation from freakish weather and all the same old stuff recycled again. You may also have noticed one of the reasons: Gov. Jerry Brown wants to justify shaking down corporate California, again. Well, not only does Brown get the temperature wrong, he also hypes the threat of extreme weather events. Which is to say he gets that wrong too. So, are we amidst horrific extreme weather events? Normally we’d just say, “not exactly.” In this case, we have to say, ”You’ve gotta be kidding.”...

    It's probably no coincidence that Gov. Jerry Brown recently launched a website to scare Californians into embracing his global-warming hype. The state is about to launch a cap-and-trade scheme that potentially will raise billions of dollars for the government, ostensibly to fight global warming. In reality, the money is likely to be diverted to more mundane political uses – like backfilling the huge budget hole perpetuated by Mr. Brown and the Democratic-controlled Legislature...

    Ever increasing numbers of Wind and Solar Power Plants are actually causing an increase in the emissions of CO2 from other power plants, most notably, natural gas fired power plants. The most current and almost real time data proves this conclusively. This is another part in the continuing monthly series that proves these two forms of renewable power most favored are not delivering power for when it is required, absolutely, 24/7/365. Because of that, those other plants are being tasked to take up the slack, and in fact to work harder. The increase in CO2 emissions from them is not...

    How does one ton of coal produce 2.86 tons of Carbon Dioxide? Think for a minute about the psychology of this Climate Change religion. Those pushing this one sided argument ask you to believe the most complex Science, and then to accept that Science on faith. However, what lies at the very root of their whole argument, those original emissions from coal fired power plants, directly relates to Science we all learned in our first year at High School. If that sounds so unbelievable, why do people who agree with those pursuing the debate have such faith in complex Science,...

    (CNSNews.com) – Dr. John P. Holdren, who then-President-elect Barack Obama nominated as director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy in December 2008, called five months before that for a global climate-change agreement that would allow wealth to be redistributed from countries in the global "North" to countries in the "South." On the July 3, 2008 edition of the liberal program “Democracy NOW!” Holdren told host Amy Goodman: “It’s important that we have a global agreement on how we are going to limit the emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases going forward, and an agreement that will include the tropical...

    When the President uses the Gulf oil spill disaster to push the barrow for Cap and Trade Legislation, be fully aware this is just a red herring, because the one bears no relation to the other. The Legislation's proposer Senator Kerry came out yesterday and said the Legislation would only cost less than a dollar a day to lower the temperature. Notice how they always use the lowest possible price, without telling you the larger figure of how much this legislation will rake in for the Government. That amount, easily calculated comes in at around $260 Billion, each and every...
  • Climate Change Global Warming Just Another Religious Faith

    Can Climate Change be described in similar terms to a religious faith? Both accept the basic premise of their belief on faith alone without actual first hand knowledge of that premise. Ask a warmist believer to explain the Science behind their belief and they cannot, other than in the most basic of terms, and some not even that. Yet, at the same time, they forget some of the basic Science they all learned in High School. Because a Scientist has told them it is so, and because it has been written down, and then peer reviewed, then that is good...
  • Using Smokestack Gases to Pump Oil

    Carbon dioxide pouring from smokestacks hardly has a reputation as a valuable commodity. But one company has launched a series of projects to see if it can use the refuse of the industrial economy to breathe new life into tired oil fields. How well Denbury Resources Inc.'s projects go will be closely watched not just by environmentalists but other oil producers. For decades, companies have pumped naturally-occurring carbon dioxide from geological basins into existing oil wells. The gas acts like a solvent for the oil, removing it from rock formations.

    It ain't easy being green, and in the case of Barack Obama's inaugural, it seems like he's not even trying to green it up. According to the Institute for Liberty, the Obamathon in Washington will produce about 575 million pounds of CO2 emissions. In a study titled Carbon Bigfoot, the IFL concludes that the CO2 glut will be substantial. From the global warming wrecking celebs flying all over the place in their many private jets, to the many hundreds if not thousands of vehicles that will be used to get people to and in the midst of the inaugural, the...

    The junk scientists, for reasons which headshrinkers or the FBI might look into, have been doing a scam job on America's people and government, all damaging to the national welfare. Along with the envirocrats, the educrats and the propaganda end of the medical profession, they work night and day, aided and abetted by the liberal media, to shut down economic activity and return us to the spinning wheel. Their tools are junk ecology, phony studies, the power-trippers at the Environmental Protection Agency and a Rousseau-like preference for nature over humanity. Here are a few of the hundreds of documented examples....
