    Leftist statists that run California refuse to prepare for drought conditions, and environmentalists block all efforts to create more reservoirs If Barack Obama can bypass his legislature, and seize executive control like a dictator at the national level, California Governor Jerry Brown has determined he can do the same at the state level. The liberal left blames Pat Brown, the California governor that was Jerry Brown’s father, for the water crisis California faces by determining it was Pat Brown’s decision to bring water to Southern California which encouraged millions upon millions to come to Southern California, which in turn created...

    Some Democrats are privately worried that Hillary Clinton has too much baggage to make a successful presidential run in 2016.

Bush in 2000 and then there's that whole Clinton thing again. No, some on the Left are urging Al to run in 2016 because he is so doggone worried about global warming: When it comes to climate change, there's no one in the Democratic Party — or any other political party — with...

    Carbon dioxide: Human contribution pales in comparison to volcanoes When President Obama announced on March 31 that he intends to ensure that the U.S. will slash its “greenhouse gas emissions” 26% below 2005 emissions levels by 2025 in order to keep pledges made to fulfill the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change, he failed to mention that such levels would be comparable to what they were in our Civil War era, 150 years ago. He also failed to mention that the U.S. has made no such pledges as regards the 1992 “Kyoto Treaty” which was resoundingly rejected by the U.S....

    Global Warming Alarmists Lie In Order To Frighten You The Day After Tomorrow is a disaster movie. The plot is fiction, a typical apocalypse story line common in film about the folly of man bringing about his ultimate demise. Fiction. Not too shabby fiction, either. Fiction, I am given to understand, means imaginary, made up, or not true. Still, the movie, like all of the genre, is also a warning to man: be not proud. Put down the nanobots, step away from Skynet, and for Gaia's sake, do not drive that Hummer. The point being, using a story to dramatize...

    Welcome to the nation of Ted Cruz's dreams — and the planet's nightmares. Ted Cruz — adamantly, and against all logic — does not believe in climate change. It’s an untenable position to hold in 2015, when the world’s scientists are more certain than ever that global warming is happening and that we’re causing it; when large portions of the country are already suffering the impacts of a changing climate; and when there’s an urgent need for immediate and drastic action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It’s also just hard to imagine a scenario in which a candidate who is...

    On Sunday, in anticipation of Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) announcement that he intends to run for president, California governor Jerry Brown (D), declared to NBC’s Meet the Press Cruz was “absolutely unfit to be running for office.” Why? Because of Cruz’s stance on climate change—some of which Cruz laid out on late night TV last week. But comparing Cruz’s comments on Late Night with Seth Meyers and Brown’s remarks on Meet the Press, it is pretty clear that it is Gov. Brown who needs to spend more time familiarizing himself with the scientific literature on climate change and especially its...

    After watching last Halloween’s broadcast of “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”, I realized that Linus van Pelt is like those who preach global warming. Linus doesn’t let the failure of the Great Pumpkin to appear destroy his belief that the Great Pumpkin exists. Similarly, the climate shaman who preach global warming won’t let colder than normal winter weather in recent years destroy their belief that someday their “Great Pumpkin” will rise from the pumpkin patch and distribute warming throughout the world.

    Well, there’s one way to ensure that everyone buys into the man-made global warming hoax: extortion. Starting next year the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) will stop funds from going to states that refuse to believe that humans are causing climate change. This news comes straight from the leftist eco-nuts at Inside Climate News, so you can be assured that it isn’t a “paranoid” conservative interpretation of an innocuous FEMA regulation: The Federal Emergency Management Agency is making it tougher for governors to deny man-made climate change. Starting next year, the agency will approve disaster preparedness funds only for states...

    For generations, books, films, and TV have warned us of the danger of mummies. In their crypts they are relatively harmless, but when they rise from the dead and start strangling people, as they did in the Cotswolds of south central England in “Doctor Who and the Pyramids of Mars,” they become a much greater threat. But this problem may shortly be solved, thanks to global warming. The world’s oldest mummies are at risk of disappearing because of man-made climate change, according to a group of Harvard University scientists. Bodies mummified about 7,000 years ago in Chile are starting to...

    The Maunder Minimum (also known as the prolonged sunspot minimum) is the name used for the period roughly spanning 1645 to 1715 when sunspots became exceedingly rare, as noted by solar observers of the time. Like the Dalton Minimum and Spörer Minimum, the Maunder Minimum coincided with a period of lower-than-average global temperatures. During one 30-year period within the Maunder Minimum, astronomers observed only about 50 sunspots, as opposed to a more typical 40,000-50,000 spots.

    I stumbled across this website and just had to share it with my fellow FReepers. Back in the late 1980's I saw a documentary that scared the bubbles out of me. In this documentary, I was informed that, by the year 2000, more than half of humanity would be dead and the rest would be roasting and starving in a Mad Max type desert. Before that, I was told that we'd be freezing and that glaciers would reach all the way to Mississippi. Over the years, I've become immune to these predictions and I've learned to take such things with...

    Why should we be surprised that the national media continues to report on “global warming” when our government has been engaged in the deliberate distortion of the actual data? “When reporters forfeit their credibility by making up stories, sources, or quotes, we are right to mock them. When their violations are significant or repeated, they should be fired,” says Charles Lipson, a professor of political science at the University of Chicago. “Demanding honest reporting has nothing to do with the reporter’s politics, personality, or personal life. It is about professional standards and our reasonable expectations.” Writing at Real Clear Politics,...

Just a few weeks ago they were declaring 2014 the hottest year on record, this despite the fact that most of the world actually cooled a touch. Now it has come to light that climate scientists have been manipulating temperature data by adjusting the actual data collected at weather stations across the world. Conveniently these “scientists” always adjust the temperature up. They’ve been doing this throughout South America and the Arctic. They’re even doing it here in the United States.

    White House Science Adviser John Holdren declared that “the global goal should be to strive for zero carbon dioxide emissions by the year 2100.” He also warned that “it won’t be easy.” One of the factors adding to the difficulty is that every living creature exhales CO2 as an essential function of being alive. The seemingly simple solution of exterminating every living thing is complicated by the emission of greenhouse gases—including CO 2—from decaying corpses. Despite these looming difficulties, Holdren says he is “optimistic that ways around these impediments will be devised before we get to 2100. If the exhalation...

    At what point will the public conclude that virtually everything that we have been told about “global warming” and “climate change” has been bogus As this is being written, all fifty states have freezing weather and nearly a month before the winter solstice on December 21 some northeastern cities are buried in record-setting snowfalls. At what point will the public conclude that virtually everything that we have been told about “global warming” and “climate change” by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, (IPCC) as well as U.S. government agencies we’re supposed to trust has been bogus, based on computer...

    Lies and deceptions surrounding the manufactured global warming crisis created for political and financial gain at the expense of millions of people The area south of Buffalo, New York was buried this week in 76 inches of snow, quite possibly the largest 24-hour total in U.S. recorded history. At the same time, the desperate advocates of global warming/climate change are finding more novel ways to push their carbon dioxide reduction and carbon footprint taxation in order to redistribute the wealth from the United States to the rest of the world. David Ignatius suggests in the Washington Post that climate should...

    The catastrophic predictions do not match up with historical trends For some reason, I don’t find it surprising that Oregon is a hotbed of climate alarmism. Thus, when the Portland Tribune recently published an article describing how Oregon’s “warmer climate imperils our health,” it seemed appropriate to look further into the claims being made. Apparently, climate change in Oregon will lead to “less snow on Mount Hood? [but] we can live with that.” Interesting, given how there has been no significant trend in maximum overwinter snowpack on Mount Hood since records began in 1981. Indeed, according to an article in...

    The new Congress must take whatever action it can to reverse and stop the harm that it represents; people’s jobs and lives depend on it. The intense cold that many Americans are encountering arrives more than a month before the official start of winter on December 2l. To discuss this, we need to keep in mind that weather is what is occurring now. Climate is measured over longer periods, the minimum of which is thirty years and, beyond that, centuries. We are colder these days because the Earth has been in a cooling cycle for 19 years and that cycle...

    Incumbent Senator Mary Landrieu (D-Louisiana) got off to a bad start in her desperate bid to hold onto her seat. In an attempt to characterize her Republican opponent Bill Cassidy as “unreliable” and “undependable,” Landrieu demanded to know what he had done to help the state recover from 2005’s Hurricane Katrina. Cassidy, an MD, responded that he had been working to provide medical aid to refugees of the storm. With help from friends and neighbors he and his physicians’ group set up an emergency treatment center in an abandoned K-Mart. Landrieu shruugged this off as “small potatoes. While my opponent...

    Whenever you hear some “climate expert” or politician refer to global warming or climate change, they are lying to you. We have more CO2 in the atmosphere and the Earth is still in a cooling cycle. For decades now both the U.S. and Europe have suffered the arrogance and the lies of so-called “climate experts.” Mind you, there are some real ones and, when it comes to global warming and climate change, the interchangeable names for the lies, they are the ones labeled “deniers” and worse for telling the truth. The fundamental lie is that humans, through their use of...
