Warnings of unrest as Europe’s green policy results in rapidly rising energy prices

The bureaucratic run European Union (EU) is determined to make Europe carbon-neutral by 2050. Breitbart reports that this plan includes carbon taxes and shutting down reliable coal and nuclear plants and replacing them with expensive and unreliable green energy such as wind

The communist agenda behind Extinction Rebellion?

Extinction Rebellion (XR) is a radical environmental group that has been causing a major disruption of traffic in Britain over that past couple weeks as it demands the country take more radical steps to stop global warming. But a recent rally at London’s Trafalgar Square exposed the radical political agenda that is behind XR and as well many environmental groups.

Top climate scientist predicts global cooling

When it comes to climate, Dr. Willie Soon should know what he is talking about. He currently works for the Solar and Stellar Physics Division at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. Breitbart reported on a recent interview Soon had with Alex Newman of the New American, where the climate scientist went against the popular opinion of the day, stating that he believed the earth would soon be entering a time of cooling, because of the inactivity of the sun.

Anyone seen a sandy beach lately?

The man-made global warming scientists/activists and their busted computer models told us that sandy beaches would be gone by 2020. They told us that glaciers would also be gone by 2020. The signs at Glacier National Park warning that its signature glaciers would be gone by 2020 are being changed. They were added more than a decade ago to reflect climate change forecasts at the time by the US Geological Survey, a park spokewoman says. https//t.co/5NkzFc7xJR -CNN (@CNN) January 8, 2020 READ: Glacier National Park is changing signs warning that Glaciers would be gone by 2020. Here’s what they say AND Glacier National Park is replacing signs that predicted its glaciers would be gone by 2020 They promised us there would be no more snow. In a March 20, 2000, interview with The Independent, global warming scientist Dr. David Viner said: “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is.“Snow will become a very rare and exciting event.” Dr David Viner, March 20, 2000, The Independent READ: Snowfalls are now just a thing of the …

Let’s pretend

Let’s pretend we are concerned about the environment and hold a news conference at a new service outlet providing electricity for electric cars that will save the world. And let’s pretend that is not a diesel generator in the background providing the electricity for those outlets.

Study: Greenland was warmer 80 years ago

This will be a bit disconcerting for the Global warming fanatics who have been claiming that because of rising C02 emissions, the earth is warmer than anytime in the past 1,000 years. The alarmist keep telling us that if we don’t reduce CO2 emissions, ice in the Arctic and Antarctic will melt and our coastal cities will be flooded. Of course, the facts say otherwise.

Global Warming: ‘We have to break your will’

According to Breitbart, This is a statement that David Ismay who serves as the undersecretary for climate change in Massachusetts, made during a Vermont Climate Council meeting in January. He said that 60% of the CO2 emissions come from average Americans and to stop this from happening, “We have to break your will.” Breitbart explains: David Ismay, the undersecretary for climate change under Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker’s (R) administration, explained during a Vermont Climate Council meeting last month the majority of the Bay State’s emissions come from average people and there is “no bad guy left … to point the finger at, to turn the screws on, and you know, to break their will.” Rather, he told his fellow climate advocates, “We have to break your will,” a remark he admitted would not bode well publicly.[…] “So let me say that again, 60 percent of our emissions that need to be reduced come from you, the person across the street, the senior on fixed income, right?” he said, acknowledging there is “no bad guy left, …

Will fighting climate change stop an Alien invasion?

As US President Joe Bind signed several executive orders on his first day in office, including stopping the Keystone pipeline and banning fracking on government land, he was threatening the livelihoods of tens of thousands of Americans. But several prominent Democrats rose up to defend Biden’s decisions. This included MSNBC host, Joy Reid, who said our failure to fight climate change may result in an invasion by Aliens from outer space. Apparently, Star Wars is a documentary, not a movie. The Daily Caller reports: MSNBC host Joy Reid said Wednesday that if aliens ever did attack earth, it might be because humans failed to take the proper steps to fight climate change. Reid spoke with White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy about the executive orders President Joe Biden had signed earlier in the day, making climate change a national security priority forms administration. “The actions include elevating climate change to a national security priority, suspending new leases for natural gas and oil development on federal lands and water, and directing the government to rely …

Do trucks glorify violence and domination?

I have often stated that everyone, whether they believe in God or not, should be on their knees thanking God every night before they go to bed that city politicians are not running their country. Case in point: A left-wing politician in the Canadian city of Vancouver recently went on a rant claiming that anyone who owns a pick-up truck is complicit in the “glorification of violence and domination.”

‘I was surprised that the models were off by that much’

Researchers from the University of Northern British Columbia were apparently a bit shocked to discover that several Glaciers near the Columbia River were 38% thicker that they were supposed to be. It seems that they may have been part of the Global Warming doomsday machine predicting the end of the world if we don’t reduce CO2 emissions. One of the researchers commented, “I was surprised that the models were off by that much.” But I am always surprised when they say that because the researchers are the ones who enter their presumptions, biases and data into the computer models. The Edmonton Journal explains: Lead author Ben Pelto and his colleagues skied cross country on the glaciers over 182 kilometres, pulling a sled-mounted ice-penetrating radar system to collect thousands of measurements. They found the total volume of ice in the basin is roughly 122 cubic kilometres, or about 23 per cent more than computer modelling had estimated. “I was surprised that the models were off by that much,” said Pelto, who completed the work with support …

Earth’s ideal climate is 5 degrees warmer, study

A recent study, published in Astrobiology, a peer-review journal, will drive the man-made global warming crowd over the edge. Researchers were looking for other planets best suited for sustaining life, but first they needed to determine what would be the optimal conditions for life. The group concluded that ideal temperature would be 5 degrees Celsius (9 degrees Fahrenheit) warmer than earth’s current average temperature.

Do ecological Marxists want to finish us off?

With governments around the world having destroyed their economies through lockdowns, in a failed effort to contain the coronavirus, environmental fanatics believe this is the perfect time to finish us off. Breitbart reports: In an interview published Monday with the leftist magazine Jacobin, Malm, who runs the master’s program in human ecology at Lund University, suggests that the moment may have finally arrived to empower governments to dramatically rearrange the world economy to stop climate change. . “There was a moment in March 2020 when many of us in the climate justice movement felt a degree of surprise to find that governments in Europe and elsewhere were prepared to basically shut down their entire economies in an effort to contain the pandemic,” Malm notes. “This is striking, given that the same states had never contemplated undertaking any kind of intervention in the economy for the sake of the climate crisis.” Malm liked what happened during the lockdowns, and wants this to continue. And we can’t forget his reference to communism, (note how some are not …

Another ‘failed’ global warming prediction

Look I would be absolutely delighted if they could just get the weather right for the weekend, but climate alarmist demand we must believe their predictions of what will happen years down the road if we don’t rein in CO2 emissions. Well, let’s take look at another of Al Gore’s failed predictions from his book An Inconvenient Truth. Gore predicted that the US would need to rename Glacier National Park because there would be no glaciers by 2012. Gore wrote: “I climbed to the top of the bigger glacier in this park with one of my daughters in 1997 and heard from the scientists who accompanied us that within 15 years all of the glaciers throughout the park will likely be gone.” Earlier this year the Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center announced that the park’s 26 glaciers are doing fine and in fact, they removed signs telling people they would be gone by 2020, hoping nobody would notice.

Should “Climate Change” be listed as the cause of death?

According to an article on Breitbart, two doctors, Arnagretta Hunter and Simon Quilty, from the Australian National University Medical School are demanding governments list “Climate Change” as the official cause of death on death certificates, if a person died from heat stroke in that country. According to an article in the Sydney Morning Herald there have been 340 deaths officially attributed to heat stroke in Australia over the past 11 years adding: “[B]ut statistical analysis by two doctors [Hunter and Quilty] with the Australian National University shows that 36,765 could have been attributed to heat.” “Climate change is a killer, but we don’t acknowledge it on death certificates,” co-author Arnagretta Hunter, from the ANU Medical School, said. Note the “could have been,” as this and similar terminology is often used to promote a particular agenda.

Reduced sunspots on the sun could mean cooling

UK’s Met Office and Royal Astronomical Society are reporting a significant decline in the number of sunspots on the sun. It is referred to as a “solar minimum” that typically takes place every 11 years. The Daily Mail writes:  Which means that the activity on the Sun’s surface has fallen dramatically, and its magnetic field has become weaker, letting into the environment more of the sort of cosmic rays that cause dramatic lightning storms and interfere with astronauts and space hardware.  They can also can lead to the explosion of ‘sprites’ — clusters of orange and red lights that shoot out of the top of thunderstorms like 60-mile-high palm trees in the sky.  Oh yes, and on top of all that, theoretically it could cause the temperature on Earth to drop to potentially catastrophic new lows. … So far this year, the Sun has been ‘blank’ — with no sunspots — 76 per cent of the time. A figure surpassed just once since the Fifties, last year, when it was 77 per cent blank. But …

The New Climate Religion

Climate activists have strong ideas about how the world will end, if we don’t change our ways. They also have new ideas for people to learn, and documents that they use to support their arguments. In theology, that is eschatology (end times), catechism (beliefs), and scriptures (respected writings). That means a belief system about the Earth’s climate is becoming a religion, something to believe in by faith. The old saying is “Man is incurably religious.” READ: The Religion of Climatism

Why is Montana’s Glacier National Park changing its signs?

There is strange thing happening in Glacier National Park, located in Montana, USA, they have already replaced some signs and are planning to change others. It is not that changing or even removing signs is unique in itself, as that probably happens on a semi regular basis in the park, but what is strange, is the reason why. Because of the hysteria built up around man-made Global Warming, the park had been told by the US Geological Survey that its glaciers, the very reason for the park’s existence, would disappear by 2020. The signs dutifully put up by park officials about ten years ago warned visitors its glaciers will have all melted away by this year. Basically, they were saying in our social media driven climate, get one last selfie before they melt away. Well in 2019, it was very apparent due to increased snowfall that the glaciers would not be gone in 2020. You will see the full irony in the increased snowfall in Dr. Viner’s quote at the end of this article. Uncharacteristically, …

The Cult of Environmental Activism

Yesterday, I was working in a small city that I will call Pleasantville because it’s a nice place, with clean streets, green parks and many tall trees, and where most people are polite. It’s a center for the economy of a large region and it has a university campus. It’s also full of retired people because of the low house prices. I’m sure you get the picture. I was in a car, waiting at a red light at a busy intersection, with another person. Suddenly, on my left, I saw someone walking through the intersection, and not on the sidewalk. That person was followed many others, two or three hundred, including at least one person in a wheel chair, and several babies. This was in a city where everyone waits for a walk light, and crosses carefully at the designated crosswalk, showing respect and courtesy to the neighbors. It’s that kind of place. It was shocking to see a large crowd walk through a busy intersection, even when the light was red for them, in …

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 …

Man-made error in man-made global warming study, oceans are not 60% warmer

On October 31, 2018, a report released in the prestigious peer-reviewed science journal Nature, broadcast that man-made global warming was much more serious than generally believed, because between 1991 and 2016, the oceans absorbed 60% more heat than previously thought. They concluded from this that the earth must also be warming faster. The report produced by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography was front page news in major dailies and online news around the world. In an interview with the Washington Post, Princeton professor Laure Resplandy, who led the study, stated: “We thought that we got away with not a lot of warming in both the ocean and the atmosphere for the amount of CO2 that we emitted. But we were wrong. The planet warmed more than we thought. It was hidden from us just because we didn’t sample it right. But it was there. It was in the ocean already.” It was giddy times for those promoting the man-made global warming mantra calling for carbon taxes and cuts in CO2 emissions. But the celebration only …

The boy who cried ‘polar bear’

“The boy who cried wolf” is one of Aesop’s fables about a shepherd boy who repeatedly tricked the people in the village about a false claim that wolves were attacking his flock. When wolves did attack, the people didn’t believe him and the flock was destroyed. Today the phrase “to cry wolf” speaks of “raising false alarms.” And we seem to have the same thing happening today. People promoting man-made global warming are using all sorts of elaborate claims to get our attention. One of them suggests the polar bear population is dying off because bears are unable to hunt on the ice. However, a report recently produced by the Nunavut government, a territory in Northern Canada, is stating the exact opposite. The people in the arctic are claiming the bear population is booming and actually becoming a hazard to people. The draft report stated: “Public safety concerns, combined with the effects of polar bears on other species, suggested that in many Nunavut communities, the polar bear may have exceeded the co-existent threshold.” As a …

Global warming taking a vacation this summer in parts of the Arctic

Though we are still getting the usual rhetoric about how man-made climate change is destroying the earth unless we act immediately, we are not hearing about the unusual climatic conditions affecting parts of the Arctic this year. There is a reason for that. This summer has been a been a particularly cold one in Greenland and it doesn’t fit the man-made global warming narrative that the ice is melting and will result in rising ocean levels unless we immediately do something to reduce CO2 emissions. But not only is the cold weather disrupting the narrative of the climate-change activists and politicians, the cold weather is also having a profound impact on shore birds that nest along Greenland’s coastline each summer. According to Scientific American, typically by June the snow has receded in Greenland allowing shore birds to nest and raise their young in July. However, this year has been cold and the ice and snow has continued into the summer preventing shore birds from finding food and nesting spots. In an interview with Scientific American, …
