Study: Antarctica and the Arctic have not warmed in 70 years despite increasing CO2 emissions

Climate Alarmists have been warning for years that because of man-made global warming, the Antarctica ice caps were going to melt and basically wash away our coastal cities. In August 2021, the left-wing website, Salon, posted an article entitled, “This is what New York City will look like after climate change” to stoke those fears of what will happen if we don’t quit driving SUVs. It wrote that “Scalding temperatures, rising sea levels and changing weather will fundamentally remake the Big Apple.” But there is a problem with this hyper-fear mongering because it seems that despite record amounts of CO2 still being poured into the earth’s atmosphere, the Arctic and Antarctica have not gotten warmer over the past seventy years. The Daily Skeptic provides more details: “A recent paper from two climate scientists (Singh and Polvani) accepts that Antarctica has not warmed in the last seven decades, despite an increase in the atmospheric greenhouse gases. It is noted that the two polar regions present a “conundrum” for understanding present day climate change, as recent warming differs …

Germany: Climate activists protest the moving of a hamlet to expand a coal mine

After being conned for several years by environmental extremists, the German government has finally come to its senses and is turning back to tried and true fossil fuels to head off potential blackouts caused by unreliable green energy. The most recent involves the tearing down of the small hamlet of Luetzerath in order to expand a coal mine, which has led to massive protests, VOA News reports. These protests were not taken up by the villagers, who had already sold their homes, but rather by climate change fanatics who occupied the empty houses and refused to leave. When police initially tried to remove the extremists, they pulled back after being confronted with a burning barricade, rocks, bottles, and fireworks. One person also glued themselves to a road. If the activists refuse to leave, the police have been authorized to remove them by force, if necessary, effective January 10th.

The left’s attack on food continues

The newly-re-elected progressive government of Ireland has announced its plan to cut the number of cattle in the country by 10% by 2030, Breitbart reports. This means the government will reduce the number of cattle in that country by 600,000 over the next eight years. It will have a devastating impact on farms in that country and as well the food supply According to the Irish Times, which received a copy of a draft report entitled the Climate Action Plan, the government will also reduce the number of cars allowed in the country by 25% over the same period. Of course, this is all just woke posturing as nothing that Ireland does will have any impact on global warming, even if you believe CO2 will destroy the world in the next couple of years. For over 30 years, the political elite has been warning us that we only have ten years to stop global warming, or it will be too late.

Most Americans aren’t ‘buying’ the climate change fanaticism, poll finds

A recent survey by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) has found that people aren’t buying what left-wing politicians and environmental extremists are peddling. The poll conducted by CRC Advisors asked a simple question: How much were Americans willing to pay to fight climate change. In a nutshell, the majority of Americans (57%) are only willing to pay $10 or less a month to fight climate change. In other words, Americans are starting to see through the extremist rhetoric and realize there is another agenda afoot. This quit being about the climate years ago and is now all politics. The Daily Caller provided an overall summary of the findings: Of course, some were willing to pay significant amounts: When you see the photos of those activists gluing themselves to cars and paintings, they all seem to be in their 20s or early 30s. So how much is this age group willing to pay for climate change? READ: Voters draw the line for ‘climate change’ cost at $10! RELATED: New Study: Greenhouse Gases May Not Be Causing …

Germany dismantles windmill to expand coal mine

After going green and now facing a looming energy crisis, Germany is not only reopening coal-power plants, it allowed a coal mine in the country to expand. INCREDIBLY, part of this expansion included the dismantling of at least one windmill. Michael Kern explains: A wind farm is being dismantled in western Germany to make way for an expansion of an open-pit lignite coal mine in a “paradoxical” situation highlighting the current prioritization of energy security over clean energy in Europe’s biggest economy.   The dismantling of at least one wind turbine at the wind farm close to the German coal mine Garzweiler, operated by energy giant RWE, has already started. RWE says that lignite, or brown coal, has been mined from the Garzweiler coalfields for over 100 years. RWE also said at the end of September that three of its lignite-fired coal units that were previously on standby would return to the electricity market on schedule in October.

Ex-Keystone pipeline employee blames Biden for energy crisis

A former welder who worked on the Keystone Pipeline, says President Joe Biden is to blame for America’s energy crisis in an interview with Fox Business. The pipeline that was intended to ship oil from Canada to refineries in Texas was shut down by President Biden as part of his move to green energy. Breitbart provides the details: “I don’t know how he gets away with keep saying that he doesn’t have anything to do with [high gas prices] when they’ve got everything to do with it,” Neal Crabtree said during an interview this week with Fox Business. Crabtree previously worked on the Keystone XL project and was among hundreds of others laid off after the president took office. Biden canceled the federal permit for the pipeline that would have brought vast amounts of oil on a daily basis from Canada down to the state of Texas. The move was meant to prioritize clean energy over fossil fuels.

Study exposes hoax of climate change emergencies

A study entitled, “A critical assessment of extreme event trends in times of global warming” written by four Italian researchers and published this year in the European Physical Journal Plus is reporting that there is no climate emergencies due to Global Warming. The data shows that despite claims to the contrary we are not having more droughts, hurricanes, or more floods than we would normally expect. WND provides more details: But the research found there’s “no evidence of a climate emergency in the record to date. No evidence,” he said. Neither are the authors “deniers,” he pointed out, noting their recommendations to prepare to make adjustments and changes. But the study noted, “Fearing a climate emergency without this being supported by data means altering the framework of priorities with negative effects that could prove deleterious to our ability to face the challenges of the future, squandering natural and human resources in an economically difficult context.” […] The study continued, “Although evidence of an increase in total annul precipitation is observed on a global level, corresponding …

A couple contradictory stories from the climate change cult

Let them burn The council for the city of Vancouver has gone all teary-eyed on its purchase of an electric fire truck. Lorne Gunter explains the benefits: Vancouver is giddy about being the first city in the country to receive an all-electric fire truck. The new e-truck will cost $300,000 more than a comparable diesel model, pump 40 per cent less water and have such a short range (30 km) because of its enormous weight that it will have to have backup diesel power in case it runs out of juice on the way to a blaze. READ: GUNTER: Here are more signs of how cultist our green thinking has become Let them freeze The UN is warning Europe with the coming winter and Russia’s cuts in natural gas exports, that their green politicians should not return to fossil fuels to keep people warm. Breitbart provides the details: The world is grappling with the worst energy crisis in generations however the U.N. has warned Europe a return to fossil fuels in response to soaring prices and …

France to restart all its nuclear reactors by winter

After being conned and intimidated by the environmental fanatics, France hopes to have all its nuclear reactors restarted by winter. According to France24, the country had shut down 32 of its 56 reactors. For the record, France relies on nuclear for 67% of its electricity. Only 7% of its electricity comes from natural gas, meaning the Russian-Ukraine war was having a minimal impact. Somehow, the environmental extremists convinced French politicians to include nuclear in their fight to lower CO2 emissions. Despite this, there are still concerns that there will be energy rationing this winter, as French politicians have embraced unreliable and expensive solar and wind power. French citizens may yet face rolling blackouts, where they will not have electricity for two hours at a time during the winter. Many French citizens use electricity to heat their homes.

The political attack on agriculture

Just so we are clear, the attacks on agriculture in Holland is not rooted in some desire to save the world from global warming, it is all politics. That is why left-wing extremists are now threatening Dutch farmers, who have been protesting their government’s decision to limit farming in that country, to reduce CO2 emissions. Breitbart provides more details: The threat by far-left extremists in the Netherlands comes as farmers continue to fight EU green agenda measures in their country that could result in the closure of up to 30 per cent of livestock farms, something local government officials have decreed is part and parcel of an “unavoidable transition”. According to a report by Der Telegraaf, extremists have threatened that they will soon occupy barns of “far-right nationalists” — also known as farmers trying to protect their livelihoods — in the country, and let lose livestock from their pens. “From next week we will occupy livestock farms and free the animals from the mega stables,” the publication reports one online declaration associated with the extremists as …

Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is roaring back

Remember a few years back, rabid environmentalists were telling the world that global warming was killing off Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Apparently, the Great Barrier Reef is roaring back, the Australian Institute of Marine Sciences (AIMS) reports. In fact, it is in the best shape it’s been in 36 years. Breitbart explains: Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is doing just fine with vast sections defying every forecast of impending doom made by climate catastrophists over the past 30 years, a report Thursday outlines. Coral cover on two-thirds of the iconic reef, which is seen as a bellwether of ocean health, has reached its highest level since records began 36 years ago, according to marine scientists monitoring the ecosystem. In defiance of the Global warming propaganda, the AMS described the reef as healthy and flourishing, but keeping with the global warming propaganda added that the prognosis for the coral reef was still “‘very poor’ due to ‘climate change.’” “This echoes news outlets like the Washington Post which in 2017 published a piece that outlined, “An ecological catastrophe is unfolding off Australia’s …

Deluge proves SUVs were invented in 1851

There are more reports that a global warming fanatic group, Tyre Extinguishers, is still prowling Britain looking for SUVs, so they can empty their tires of air. As part of this campaign, the zealots leave a letter on the vehicle’s windshield blaming them for climate change because they are driving a gas-guzzling vehicle instead of taking a bus. Unfortunately, that doesn’t explain why they also empty the tires of electric SUVs. But now concrete evidence is emerging that SUVs have been around a lot longer than previously thought. It seems they were first invented in 1851 and probably earlier. The recent massive flooding in Britain due to extreme rainfall has the eco fanatics blaming the deluge on climate change and obviously SUVs. However, during the recent lockdowns, researchers had time to study past historical records and weather reports and discovered that a major rainfall in Britain during 1852 smashed the flooding that took place this year. In fact, it wasn’t even close. The Daily Mail writes: Heavy rainfall may be associated with flash floods and …

50 years of failed Green fanatical predictions

I am old enough to remember how the green fanatics were warning us in the 1970s that unless we cut back on oil consumption we would be ushering in the next ice age. And when that didn’t happen, undaunted, a decade or so later, these same fanatics dusted off those old press releases changed ‘man-made ice age’ to ‘man-made global warming’ and started warning the world of imminent doom.

Environmental activist confesses: We misled you

In an article originally posted by Forbes, Environmental activist Michael Shellenberger, who Time Magazine called a “hero of the environment,” confesses that through climate change scare mongering, environmental extremists have misled us for years. Essentially, Shellenberger says the climate is changing and it is nothing to worry about and in many instances the warming is making things better. Shellenberger writes: On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem. I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30. But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public. …

American radical-leftist politician, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, warns we have just 12 years to stop man-made global warming

When US Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the newly elected radical leftist and rising star in the Democratic party, recently issued a warning that the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t stop man-made global warming she was just parroting the propaganda being released by UN climate change report in October 2018. The report was part of the UN’s Paris climate accord. In order to hold global warming to 1.5 degrees by 2030, we would need to reduce CO2 emissions by 45% below 2010 levels and then by have our emissions reach zero by 2050 in order for there to be a 66% chance of holding it to just a 1.5 Celsius degree temperature rise. With temperatures scheduled to reach -30 Celsius in the next three days where I live, I would be delighted if it was a balmy -28.5 Celsius instead. Of course this is not the first time we have received such dire warnings. In his 2007, Nobel Peace prize acceptance speech, Al Gore predicted that the arctic would be ice …
