High Park Fire, image via InciWeb What did I tell ya? The embers of the High Park and Waldo Canyon fires have barely died down, but the enviro-nitwit Democrats on Capitol Hill are already pushing for a House hearing into wildfires and "climate change." Via The Hill, which gets the headline right: "Dems use wildfires... Read More
Global warming blame-ologists play with fire by Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate Copyright 2012 COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Good news: The Waldo Canyon fire, which forced 32,000 residents (including our family) to flee, claimed two lives and destroyed 347 homes, is now 100 percent contained. Bad news: Radical environmentalists won't stop blowing hot air about this... Read More
"Climate Pollution Deniers." Shorter Think Progress headline via VerumSerum: "Tornadoes bring death, justice to climate deniers." Of course. Never mind the facts: No matter. Being a Soros-funded smear merchant means never having to say you're sorry. *** Via Doug Powers, Brian Williams
Ladies and gentlemen, I call your attention to the key passage in unrepentant Climate Change Republican John McCain's Senate floor statement yesterday on cap-and-trade. Note well (hat tip: Edward John Craig/Planet Gore): More than three months after the ClimateGate scandal broke and despite relentless new disclosures every week about the fraud, misconduct, and distortions that... Read More
I called ClimateGate "the global warming scandal of the century" back on November 20. Deeper and deeper it goes. Over the weekend, University of East Anglia global warming cultist Phil Jones conceded that there has been no statistically significant warming over the last 15 years: The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose... Read More
Last month, I compiled a link round-up for you on ClimateGate con artist Michael Mann of Penn State University. Here's the very latest on the academic fraud probe by Penn State: Inquiry into climate scientist moves to next phase Wednesday, February 3, 2010 University Park, Pa. — An internal inquiry by Penn State into the... Read More
Three items for you about Michael Mann, ClimateGate bully/eco-con artist... 1) First, watch the news report from Pennsylvania -- where Mann is under investigation by Penn State: Background from the Commonwealth Foundation. They've called for an independent investigation and expose Penn State's conflicts of interests in the matter. 2) The Foundry flags Mann's $514,000 stimulus... Read More
Who's in the mood for some Dean Martin? The Copenhagen debacle has me singing, "Let It Snow:" President Obama delivered a stinker of speech -- yawn -- panned by his former Euro-groupies whose Obama-philia has chilled considerably. Obama managed to cobble a "feeble" agreement that he is, of course, calling "unprecedented." Obama leaves the snow-covered... Read More
Anthony Watts has the latest on the eco-thuggery in Copenhagen: Lord Monckton barred from Copenhagen conference – pushed to the ground by security Lord Monckton reflects:
Hmmmm. Left-wing radical billionaire George Soros has injected himself into the Copenhagen climate change talks. He is riding to the "rescue" of negotiators at loggerheads over the pricetag of global regulatory intervention to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Look: The $10 billion a year proposed by rich nations to help the poor adapt to climate change... Read More
Al Gore is on his ClimateGate whitewash mission -- and, as usual, ManBearPig isn't going to let inconvenient facts get in the way of his eco-crusade. He talked with Slate magazine's John Dickerson and repeatedly pooh-poohed the scandalous ClimateGate e-mails as "more than 10 years old," "over 10-year-old e-mails," and "an e-mail exchange more than... Read More
Add another global warming lie to the stinking green heap: EPA chief Lisa Jackson has denied that the greenhouse gas endangerment finding had anything to do at all with the Copenhagan climate change conference. Nope, don't question the timing of the EPA's war on carbon. Pure coincidence. Except... Jackson herself said the exact opposite in... Read More
Eco-czars of the Obama administration, activate! Form of...a corrupted "scientific" finding on greenhouse gas "public endangerment." Timed for maximum impact on the Copenhagen global warming treaty talks, the Obama EPA is set to announce that greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare, paving the way for the green bureaucrats to radically regulate emissions. Keeping an... Read More
Make sure you keep this list of 56 newspapers handy when looking for thorough, fair coverage of the ClimateChange scandal. These are 56 newspapers that you cannot trust on the issue: Today, the eco-herd of papers published a collective editorial whipping up hysteria over the issue in the face of massive data manipulation, suppression, and... Read More
The chill wind of ClimateGate has blown over Al Gore's $1,200-per handshake lecture at Copenhagen. He has canceled the hot-air hoedown. ClimateDepot dubbed the crumbling global warming conference next week "Nopenhagen." Blow, winds of change, blow: Former Vice President Al Gore on Thursday abruptly canceled a Dec. 16 personal appearance that was to be staged... Read More
Another gargantuan reason, in the wake of ClimateGate, to call the whole damned thing off: When an estimated 16,500 delegates, activists and reporters descend upon Copenhagen Monday for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, a lot of hot air will follow. The U.N. estimates the 12-day conference will create 40,584 tons of carbon dioxide equivalents,... Read More
Graph via Steve McIntyre My syndicated column today looks at the global warming cultists in the Obama administration who are working overtime to paper over the ClimateGate scandal. Yesterday, Phil Jones, the head of the U.K.’s Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia stepped aside while the university investigates. Penn State prof Michael... Read More
Inconvenient data.
"Document dump" is the operative word of the month, isn't it? We had another holiday weekend document dump of visitor logs from the White House, which included these trips: Holdren, of course, is the population control freak/global warming zealout/science czar -- who, as I noted last week, is smack dab in the middle of the... Read More
Ah, science czar John Holdren. He's been hyping climate change catastrophe since the 1970s, has been a master of stonewalling critics of his population control zealotry, and knows how to hide behind friendly water-carriers in the media. So, you won't be surprised to learn he is smack dab in the middle of the exploding ClimateGate... Read More
Yeah, you better pray. I blogged the ClimateGate scandal last week. It keeps going -- and growing. There are calls on both sides of the pond for an investigation into data manipulation. A former British lord is demanding an independent inquiry: This morning Lord Lawson, who has reinvented himself as a prominent climate change sceptic... Read More
On fire.
Anthony Watts of Watt's Up With That? and Stephen McIntrye of Climate Audit broke the story this morning of the hacking break-in at the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (aka Hadley CRU). BBC confirms: The e-mail system of one of the world's leading climate research units has been breached by hackers. E-mails reportedly... Read More
Population control has always been behind the green agenda:
Inconvenient truth.
The EPA has two more whistleblowers in its own ranks calling out the agency's flawed agenda and the cap-and-trade monstrosity. You'll recall the case of Alan Carlin, whose research critical of the outdated data used in EPA's "public endangerment finding" on greenhouse gases was stifled by EPA. EPA lawyers Laurie Williams and Allan Zabel have... Read More
Hey, there, lonely girl.
Remember the Barbara Boxer eco-power grab I told you about this morning? (Here.) Well, Babs "Don't call me ma'am" Boxer went ahead with the markup "hearing" on her global warming bill despite the absence of all but one Republican (George Voinovich). She sat alone during markup doing nothing for 15 minutes. I obtained photos and... Read More
Welcome to the era of "bipartisanship." Republican participation be damned. Welcome to the most deliberative body in the world. Full deliberation be damned, too: Six ranking Republican U.S. senators Monday warned the head of the environment committee that pushing ahead with a vote on a landmark climate bill this week would "severely damage" the chances... Read More
Soon to be the new mascot of the Democrats' cap-and-tax push, Disney's Tinker Bell was tapped by the United Nations this week to serve as an "Honorary Ambassador of Green." This is not an Onion parody: Tinker Bell edged out Wendy and Captain Hook for the position. Can't beat a microscopic carbon footprint.
"What is the truth?"
Lord Christopher Monckton, former adviser to Margaret Thatcher, spoke at Bethel University in St. Paul, MN last week on the UN Climate Change treaty scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December 2009. He was hosted by the Minnesota Free Market Institute. Minnesota Majority posted the video of his speech, entitled "Is Obama Poised to... Read More
I hate to say "I told you so." But, well, I told you so. GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham has signed on to the Democrats' massive green redistribution scheme masquerading as a planet-saving, national security-enhancing "energy independence" scheme. Can John McCain and the rest of the Climate Change Republicans be far behind? First, a quick trip... Read More
I said it last month and it bears repeating: Beware the Climate Change Republicans. Are you ready for the latest signs of capitulation by GOP global warming preacher Sen. John McCain and company? 1) Senate Dems opening to nuclear as a path to GOP support, 60 votes 2)
Via Marc Morano at Climate Depot comes word that Stanford University is trying to cover for one of its leading eco-extremists: Stanford University has banned a skeptical documentary film from airing a climate change interview with one of its prominent warming activist professors, Stephen Schneider. After legal threats from Stanford University -- apparently on behalf... Read More
Expensive eco-hysterics take to the Senate floor today. Democrat Sens. Barbara Boxer and John Kerry are set to unveil their "climate change" plan this morning. The Institute for Energy Research has posted the two advance drafts of the bill and provides helpful analysis. Except, of course, for the parts where Boxer and Kerry have inserted... Read More
The Energy Secretary is going to take away your car keys or something if you keep acting like unruly "teenage kids" and oppose the cap-and-tax agenda. Read the whole thing, and note this: There's "very little debate" inside your own administration, Secretary Chu, because dissenters will get crushed.
Gird your loins, taxpayers and ratepayers. Sen. Barbara Boxer is readying her cap-and-tax monstrosity, and she is hoping to soften opposition among Climate Change Republicans. E&E News reports on the latest maneuvering, via Matt Dempsey at the US Senate Cmte on Environment and Public Works: The Senate climate debate has largely been in standby mode... Read More
War on watchdogs.
Over the past two months, I've chronicled the plight of EPA whistleblower Alan Carlin at the hands of Team Obama's dissent-stiflers. My friends at the Competitive Enterprise Institute first blew the lid on the story and continue to monitor the war on EPA watchdogs. The latest development? EPA may get rid of a key internal... Read More
Killing cap-and-tax won't happen without massive resistance and persistence. Gird your loins and get on the phone next week. Via the Tulsa World, Sen. Inhofe says it's "dead in the water" -- notwithstanding the arrival of a new clown in town:
Need an emetic this morning? Read this. *** Flashback: The Obamasburg Address
Alan Carlin is a brave man. He notes at the end of this Fox and Friends interview this morning that things are "strained" at his agency, but he "still has a job." For now. What I'm hearing: According to insiders, Carlin is not the only one who has faced/may face possible retaliation by the eco-zealous... Read More
