  • 'Objective' Reporters Wildly Cheer As 'Climate Change' Agreement Announced

    Newsbusters ^ | 12/14/15 | Tom Blumer
    Apparently a generation of "journalists" has been raised to believe that the matter of human-caused global warming is "settled science," and that anyone who doubts the agenda-driven, redistributionist "climate change" movement is an enemy of civilization. Additionally, these people clearly don't understand the orchestrated, false-drama nature of diplomatic gatherings such as the one in Paris which just concluded with yet another "breakthrough" but non-binding "agreement" to reduce carbon emissions. Thus, it's disconcerting, but not at all hard to believe, that these ignorant, gullible children disguised as discerning adults wildly cheered the announcement of the aforementioned agreement as if an athlete...

    President Hollande of France slid to the microphone, and, with great Gallic aplomb, announced December 12th, 2015 will be a day that lives in “infamy.” Or maybe it was “history.” It’s hard to tell since that gentleman was rather excited when he spoke, seeing that the world had just entered into a momentous agreement to spend as much of your money as humanely possible to prevent the unpreventable.So take your pick: infamy or history. Either way, this fateful date will be remembered as the Day Science Died.Did you ever know her? Science used to work hand in hand with Government, discovering...

    President Obama is enlisting conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch in his fight to combat climate change, with companies News Corporation and 21st Century Fox signing onto a White House pledge to cut emissions and support the president's push for a global climate deal in Paris. Tuesday's announcement by the White House nearly doubles the number of businesses to sign the climate pledge since July, making News Corp. and Fox, of which Murdoch is the co-chairman, the latest to do so. The 73 companies that signed the American Business Act on Climate Pledge have operations in all 50 states and represent...

    It is safe to predict that when 20,000 world leaders, officials, green activists and hangers-on convene in Paris next week for the 21st United Nations climate conference, one person you will not see much quotedis Professor Judith Curry. This is a pity. Her record of peer-reviewed publication in the best climate-science journals is second to none, and in America she has become a public intellectual. But on this side of the Atlantic, apparently, she is too ‘challenging’. What is troubling about her pariah status is that her trenchant critique of the supposed consensus on global warming is not derived from...
  • CIA Director Cites ‘Impact of Climate Change’ as Deeper Cause of Global Instability

    CNS News ^ | 11/16/15
    Speaking today at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C., Central Intelligence Agency Director John Brennan said that CIA analysts see “climate change” as a “deeper cause” of the instability seen in places like Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Yemen and Libya.“Mankind’s relationship with the natural world is aggravating these problems and is a potential source of crisis itself,” Brennan said at one point in his speech. “Last year was the warmest on record, and this year is on track to be even warmer.”“When CIA analysts look for deeper causes of this rising instability, they find nationalistic, sectarian, and...

    Washington Times ^ | 11/15/15 | Valerie Richardson
    Vermont Sen. Bernard Sanders doubled down Sunday on his insistence that climate change leads to terrorism, a connection he called “pretty obvious.”“If we are going to see an increase in drought and flood and extreme weather disturbances as a result of climate change, what that means is peoples all over the world are going to be fighting over limited natural resources,” Mr. Sanders said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”“If there’s not enough water, if there’s not enough land to grow your crops, you’re going to see migrations of people fighting over land that will sustain them. And that will lead...

    CNS News ^ | 11/12/15 | H. Sterling Burnett
    In an interview in Salon touting his new book Unstoppable, which should be filed in the fiction category at your local library, the title of the interview proclaims, “Bill Nye demolishes climate deniers.” After reading the article, I was left asking: Who are these deniers, and where does this demolishing take place?Salon and Nye have evidently taken a page from the climate dogmatists’ playbook and decided to label any climate realists with the derogatory term “deniers,” linking them to holocaust deniers, an offensive smear the Associated Press requires its writers to avoid. For Nye, a climate denier is anyone who...

    Truth Revolt ^ | 9/22/15 | Mark Tapson
    The Associated Press announced on its blog today that henceforth it will refer to climate change skeptics less pejoratively, reports Mediaite. The AP explained the changes thusly: Our guidance is to use climate change doubters or those who reject mainstream climate science and to avoid the use of skeptics or deniers. [emphasis in original] Some background on the change: Scientists who consider themselves real skeptics who debunk mysticism, ESP and other pseudoscience, such as those who are part of the Center for Skeptical Inquiry complain that non-scientists who reject mainstream climate science have usurped the phrase skeptic. They...

    The Register ^ | 9/14/15 | Lewis Page
    Climate-change followers will know there hasn't been any global warming since around the turn of the century. Observers had been expecting that to change, perhaps from this year, but now a fresh report from the British weather bureau suggests it may be business as no-warming usual for a while yet.In a nutshell the UK Met Office climatologists say that a long-expected El Nino is finally starting in the Pacific Ocean, which will probably cause significant warming. The Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), another ocean mechanism in the Pacific, also looks likely to heat the planet up from this point. But, no...

    President Obama argues that his policies will result in cleaner air and will mitigate the effects of climate change, but unintended consequences of the administrations environmental agenda seem all but certain possibly even including higher mortality rates across the country, according to at least one scholar.Key pieces of Mr. Obamas environmental plan, including proposals to increase ozone standards, limit carbon emissions from power plants and continue mandating more ethanol in U.S. gasoline supplies, will bring with them serious side effects in the coming months and years, critics and some analysts say.Those effects could include higher electricity rates and the...

    Dana Point, Calif. Senator Ted Cruz on Sunday got perhaps the most enthusiastic applause of any Republican presidential candidate to appear before the 450 donors drawn to Southern California for the Koch brothers summer conference with a point-blank denial of global warming. Politicos Mike Allen moderated a question-and-answer session with the Texas senator, who said of global warming simply, The data and facts dont support it. The Texas senator, who dominated his time on stage, leaning into Allen and at one point waving off a question from the moderator, went on to deliver a full-throated denial of global warming...

    Daily Caller ^ | 7/21/15 | Michael Bastasch
    After ostensibly trying to separate global warming from national security concerns, Democratic presidential candidate Martin OMalley Monday jumped on the bandwagon of those claiming global warming created the conditions necessary for Islamic State to grow.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, created a humanitarian crisis that created the symptoms or rather the conditions of extreme poverty that has now led to the rise of ISIL and this...

    While most of Hawaii experiences sweltering conditions this July, part of the Big Island might seem like winter after Mauna Kea got some snow overnight.Officials have closed the road to the summit of Mauna Kea Friday after snow fell and caused icy road conditions. A ranger reported mixed rain and snow, fog and 1.5 inches of frozen snow on the summit.br />Mauna Kea weather varies widely. A calm sunny day may quickly become treacherous with hurricane force winds and blizzard conditions. Summit winds above 120 mph are not uncommon. At 10:15 a.m. Friday the temperature was still a chilly 36...

    Bill Nye, the liberal establishments cartoonish Pseudoscience Guy, packages progressive ideology in childish goofiness so as to render it less menacing as he preaches disproven global warming theory to kids young enough to take it at face value. Although his attempts to implant fear of climate change are laughable, his underlying message should make your hair stand on end: Climate change is a real deal everybodyNow back in 1750 there were about one-and-a-half billion people in the world. Well today there is 7.2 going on 7.3 billion people. Well thats the problem. Theres billions of people breathing and burning the...

    The Stream ^ | 6-20-15 | Jay Richards
    A December 18, 2009Washington Post poll, released on the final day of the ill-fated Copenhagen climate summit, reported four in ten Americans now saying that they place little or no trust in what scientists have to say about the environment. This was the month the tide turned in public perceptions of climate change. Several recent polls have found climate change skepticism rising faster than sea levels on Planet Algore (not to be confused with Planet Earth, where sea levels remain relatively stable). Many of the doubt-inducing climate scientists and their media acolytes attribute this rising skepticism to the stupidity of...

    Absolute Rights ^ | 5/20/15 | Alecs Garcia
    President Obama in a speech on Wednesday cast climate change as a growing national security threat, accusing Republican skeptics of harming military readiness by denying its effects. Obama argued in his address to graduates at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy that rising sea levels and higher global temperatures endanger military bases and could force personnel to respond to conflicts around the world that are fueled by their effects. Climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security, and, make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country, Obama told new...

    American Thinker ^ | 4/13/15 | Thomas Lifson
    Failing to convince the public that global warming, is and urgent cause for concern, hysterical fear-mongers are turning to the armory of tyrants, and demanding punishment for those they call deniers, consciously inking Holocaust denial. The recent rebranding of their cause as climate change creates a certain awkwardness, as nobody denies that climate has and always will change. Glaciers, after all, covered a good part of the northern tier of the United States, carving out the Great Lakes, for example. Nonetheless, the hysterics demand that climate change deniers be punished, even killed, and the call extends to from the spittle-slecked...

    The state Board of Commissioners of Public Lands Tuesday voted to prohibit staff from addressing climate change, even if it's just responding to emails on the subject, according to a Bloomberg news report.State Treasurer Matt Adamczyk, who sits on the board, raised the issue on Tuesday, pointing to climate change work done by the board's exectuve director, Tia Nelson.Nelson, the daughter of Gaylord Nelson, the U.S. senator who founded Earth Day, worked on climate changes issues in 2007 and 2008 after being appointed to a global warming task force by former Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle."It's not part of our sole...

    President Obama said in an interview broadcast Wednesday that his push to address climate change has been partly influenced by a frightening moment when his daughter Malia had an asthma attack as a 4-year-old. What I can relate to is the fear a parent has, when your 4-year-old daughter comes up to you and says, Daddy, Im having trouble breathing. The fright you feel is terrible, the president said on ABCs Good Morning America Wednesday. And if we can make sure that our responses to the environment are reducing those incidents, that's something that I think every parent would wish...

    On the eve of Tuesday's U.N. climate summit, the United Nations chief underscored the urgent need to tackle climate change by moving toward an energy-efficient, low-carbon global economy. Speaking at the opening of Climate Week NYC, a set of more than 140 climate-related events across the city, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he had noticed much more urgency to address climate change than he had seen in previous U.N. gatherings on the issue in 2007 and in 2009, when governments failed at a Copenhagen conference to agree a new binding climate treaty.
