    Amazing! Pat Robertson, the 2,000 leg-presser?... The creator of the age-defying protein shake?... He is suddenly now the go-to guy for the MSM (and their voice of reason) when it comes to Ken Ham and his debate w/Bill Nye? Pat Robertson: Marginalized to Oracle[ized] in a flash! And in Virginia, not Delphi, of all places, too! BTW, isn't Bill Nye one of those Anthropogenic Global Warming guys, and a believer that man is the main cause of Gorebal Warming?

    KILLER freezes, floods and heatwaves will devastate Britain during the next 30 years, climate ­experts have warned. Many people could die as extreme weather becomes common. There will be more freak winds like the October storm, which killed four people. Heatwaves will be lethal and the sea level will rise, leaving coastal towns at risk of being swamped by storm surges. Sir Brian Heap, president of the European Academies Science Advisory Council, said he felt “obliged” to issue the warning after a new study by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It comes on the back of Typhoon Haiyan in...

    In 2007 advocates of global warming at the BBC wrote an article titled “Arctic summers ice-free ‘by 2013’”[1] based on findings presented to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a UN led body that assesses the state of the Earth's climate. While the public has been bombarded with false data supporting the CO2 green house gas scare, nature seems to be taking its own stand in favor of the world’s “skeptics.” Inexplicably, an unpredicted frigid Arctic summer has covered an additional 533,000 square miles of ocean with ice resulting in an increase of twenty nine per cent in less...

    In the wake of a crushing defeat last week for the climate alarmism-promoting Australian Labor Party, which imposed the deeply unpopular and expensive “carbon tax” credited by analysts for the conservative coalition’s victory, authorities in Australia are preparing to dismantle and consolidate the myriad global-warming schemes spawned under the previous government. However, while legislation is already being drafted, major hurdles remain before the tax on CO2 can be scrapped, sparking an outcry among businesses, state governments, and especially Australian voters, who voted overwhelmingly in favor of the new coalition and its pledge to kill the costly economic burden. According to...

    President Obama doesn’t “have time for a meeting of the flat-Earth society.” And he probably considers you a member if you disagree with him on his crushing regulatory approach to climate change. The heck of it is, the policies he advocates actually would not help the Earth. Before Obama’s speech yesterday, Heritage’s Herbert and Joyce Morgan Fellow, Nicolas Loris, explained the President’s dilemma: But let’s pretend we were able to stop emitting all carbon immediately. Forget the electricity to cool our homes in the summer months. Shut down the power plants. Stop driving our cars. No talking. The Science and...

    I wonder if the Germans gave any thought as they were listening to this to what can happen when an elected executive consolidates too much power for himself under the guise of some sort of emergency or crucial imperative. Obama’s friends at the AP, when they’re not mad at him for snooping on their phone calls, report: The plan, with details expected to be revealed in coming weeks, comes as Obama has been under increasing pressure from environmental groups and lawmakers from states harmed by Superstorm Sandy to cut pollution from existing power plants, the largest source of climate-altering gases....

    "Since record keeping began in the sixties, we've never encountered anything like this before," ice breaker Ulf Gulldne told the local newspaper Örnsköldsviks Allehanda. On March 29th, 176,000 square kilometers of the Baltic Sea was covered in ice, a record for the time of year. On a map, it means about half of the central and northern parts are frozen over. Far north, the ice is both thick and difficult to break through. The date on which the ice reaches its maximum spread usually falls much earlier in the year. The previously latest date record was March 25th, 2008. That...

    A recently released United Nations report outlines the global body’s plan to foist a centrally planned “green” world order on all of humanity, making every level of government subservient to its “sustainable development” agenda. The upcoming Rio+20 sustainability conference in Brazil — held two decades after the first “Earth Summit” adopted Agenda 21 — will be used to solidify the foundation of the emerging planetary control system.

    United Nations boss Ban Ki-moon and his top deputies gathered in secret last year to chart the future course of humanity through “sustainable development,” a controversial concept the UN equates with “saving the planet” in what would ultimately entail a radical and complete transformation of human civilization. But even though the erection of a global so-called “green-economy” regime is a top UN priority, leaked minutes of the meeting revealed that the term itself remains undefined. The closed-door session, held last October in Long Island, focused mainly on using the upcoming UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UN CSD) in Rio de...

    The debate over global warming is now entering the classroom and its proponents are alarmed. It seems the “dogma” of the existence of global warming is running into problems as boards of education in several states have established a standard that requires the presentation of climate change “denial” as a valid scientific position. Legislators in other states have introduced bills that require equal time for climate change skeptics’ views in the classroom. With new national science standards from kindergarten through twelfth grade due by the end of 2012, we can expect to see a heated debate over climate change appear...

    Modern science used to pride itself on its insistence on doubting everything and establishing the truth of things based on empirical data. Often the lone scientist would work hard against the common assumptions and make great breakthroughs and discoveries. It seems such ideas about science are becoming old-fashioned and romantic. Today’s scientists are part of university establishments that must worry about their bottom line and prestige. Sometimes it is simply too controversial to doubt. Scientists are treated no different from other academics and are encouraged to tow the politically- or ecologically-correct party line to ensure their future careers. The most...

    An effort to "expose" climate change skeptics will instead show that Gore is a charlatan.

Gore is completely wrong when he tells us that the science of climate change is settled.

    The cold spring apparently has slowed sales of Minnesota fishing licenses. Sales through Monday are down 21 percent compared with the same time last year. "We think it's likely the cool spring weather,'' said Ed Boggess, DNR Fish and Wildlife Division director. "And last year we had an early, warm spring and sold a lot of licenses early.'' Sales are down just 9 percent from 2009 and are up about 1.5 percent from 2008, which was another cold spring, Boggess noted. The DNR had sold 344,189 licenses through Monday. Last year, the agency had sold 435,270 licenses.

Where the delegates arrived at Copenhagen with dreams of sweeping change – dreams which, for the most part, turned into shattered illusions – they descended on Cancun with smaller expectations in mind. And yet, even with what seemed like less at...

That says a lot about the reality of environmentalism in government. As the ethanol tax credit comes up for renewal in Congress on Dec. 31, it's worth noting it only came about because the vice president cast the decisive 51st vote in favor of it in 1994. At the time, he packaged it as a big move to preserve the environment in a market-friendly, sustainable manner, and for years defended his vote because it was supposedly good for...

    The Earth is warming, which is changing weather patterns and often causing localized weather volatility as opposed to localized warming. Extreme storms, droughts, intense rains, unusual amounts of snow or lack of snow are all signs of global warming. People know the weather is getting less predictable. They call it “weird weather.” This quote from Jonathan Rose, who is on the Natural Resources Defense Council, is utter scientific and factual rubbish.

Only several orders of magnitude. The movie depicted floods sweeping across Manhattan as New York City was swamped by a rise...

    South Florida is America's most vulnerable community to climate change. While Miami-Dade County, a pioneer and national leader, has made strides in addressing climate-change mitigation and adaptation, we now are moving toward a more resilient and sustainable future. Miami-Dade County is developing a community-sustainability plan called GreenPrint to achieve aggressive energy- and greenhouse-gas reduction goals. This community plan, which does not know city or county boundaries, is being developed to reaffirm and synchronize our government and community goals, initiatives and measures. It will leverage existing sustainability goals and initiatives and develop new ones where needed. In September, I convened the...

    Although a vote on "climate change" legislation is being pushed into 2010, a leading think tank is warning people to stay on their toes. Prospects are looking dim for cap-and-trade legislation in 2009. In conjunction, America's failure to pass the legislation is having a negative effect on the upcoming Copenhagen climate treaty talks. But Ben Lieberman of The Heritage Foundation warns concerned citizens that the fight is not over. "Those of us who are concerned about the global-warming legislation as it currently stands need to constantly be vigilant," he urges. "But it does look like things are being pushed into...

    Today's report about political developments surrounding the global warming issue is brought to you by the letter "C." 1. C is for "carbon dioxide." Environmental extremists and major news journalists call this gas that is exhaled by all animals, and that is food for plants, a dangerous pollutant. Yet we would all die without it. That makes me sad. 2. C is for "climate change." It used to be called global warming, which many activists with a socialist bent warned would bring more catastrophic weather events, elevating seas, and economic ruin. They said because humans continue to produce greater amounts...

    According to the latest Pew Research Poll, only 35 percent see global warming as a very serious problem, down from 44 percent last year. Fifty-seven percent believe there is solid evidence that man is driving climate change, down from 71 percent in 2008. As the public concern over climate change continues to erode, Lord Christopher Monckton -- the former advisor for science policy to Lady Margaret Thatcher -- says the alleged science behind manmade climate change is eroding as well. Christopher Monckton"First of all, it's now been demonstrated by measurement that CO2 has only one-sixth of the warming effect on...

    Carbon trading markets will yield few fortunes and break a lot of hearts I am no economist, but for an amateur I have a track record in predicting economic trends at least as good as Paul Krugman’s and I didn’t bother attending an Ivy League school to be able to do that. In predicting economic bubbles there are two things to remember. One is that most bubbles deal with intangibles, such as Michael Milliken’s junk bonds and the dot com bubble that saw insane valuations for non-performing stocks simply because they had an “E” in front of their name. The...

    Take a look at the action of the Department of Energy. They just recently loaned $529 million dollars to a Finnish company that is producing a $90,000 dollar hybrid sports car (that is $90,000 per car Clyde). These funds are supposed to be used to create , or save American jobs, not sent overseas to create Finnish jobs building cars that none of us can afford in the first place. Now comes the really interesting part, guess who is now receiving profits from this little venture by way of ownership of a fair amount of stock in this company? You...

    A Government advert which implies pets will die from climate change has received more than 200 complaints from viewers. The television advert shows a father reading a bedtime story to his daughter. In the book, puppies drown and rabbits are left without water to drink because of rising CO2 levels. The male character reads: "There once was a land where the weather was very, very strange... "Scientists said it was being caused by too much CO2, and it was the children of the land who'd have to live with the horrible consequences." The young daughter asks if there is a...

    Anyone who believes that the Kyoto Accord and all the subsequent meetings spearheaded by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), is actually about global warming or climate change, would be well advised to submit a wish list to Santa Claus in care of the North Pole. Chances of having jolly St. Nick deliver what’s on that list are better than the chances of stopping global warming. That’s because global warming has already stopped with no help from Al Gore and his friends. In fact, recent scientific discoveries have found the smoking gun of global warming isn’t actually smoking...

    An anonymous adage advises, “There is nothing wrong with making mistakes. Just don’t respond with encores.” Break your stick in ice hockey and drop it immediately or a penalty is assessed because continued use can cause serious damage (Rule 10.3). Apparently this rule doesn’t apply in climate science where a few scientists continue to use a broken “hockey stick” and cause serious damage. Facts proving humans are not causing global warming are not enough to stop the political juggernaut. Perhaps exposure of collusion among a small group of self-proclaimed climate scientists who continue to play with a broken stick...

    People all across the U.S. are asking a similar question: "What happened to summer?" A check on Twitter will find a recurring tweet theme from people in New England. For example, "It's so depressing that it's the middle of July, cloudy, and barely 70 [degrees]." Another reads, "Had to wear my winter coat; it was 48 degrees this morning...in July!" Marc Morano with ClimateDepot.com says all across America, record low temperatures have been broken throughout the summer. He blames that on a recent trend of global cooling that has been in place for more than seven years. "The reason Climate...

    Australia's Connor Court Publishing is creating waves again. First the pro-free speech heretics published Professor Ian Plimer's Heaven and Earth - a skeptic's guide to global warming, a runaway bestseller. What's more, the European Union President endorsed it. Now? The publisher informs me (via email) that a new book is on the way: The Climate Caper. Details are also available on their website: So you think the theory of disastrous climate change has been proved! You believe that scientists are united in their efforts to force the nations of the world to reduce their carbon emissions! You imagine perhaps that...
