Even in a federal bureaucracy infamous for squandering taxpayer dollars, the massive sums of public wealth burned up paying for and preparing for absurd “global-warming” scenarios still stick out. Now, the Defense Department is dealing with ridicule and strong criticism over an embarrassing “climate” report produced by consultants a decade ago that was wrong about literally everything. Lawmakers, too, are getting fed up with the “climate” antics, with the House voting to prohibit any more Pentagon spending on Obama’s global-warming alarmism.
EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy announces Obama's complex and costly new power plant CO2 regulations that supporters favorably compare to ObamaCare and critics say will bankrupt coal plants and drive energy rates skyward.
The recent case of meteorologist Lennart Bengtsson, one of Sweden’s leading climate scientists, shows that Climategate-style censorship of skeptics continues.
Top Hollywood bigwigs were more than willing to take the Middle East oil money to produce anti-fracking propaganda and keep quiet about it all — until they got busted by Project Veritas.
For the one in five Americans who still express confidence in the establishment media, recent headlines probably suggested it was time to start building an ark to prepare for the supposed upcoming surge in sea levels — all of it allegedly brought about by the imminent “collapse” of an ice sheet in Antarctica. Back in the real world, though, sea ice levels in Antarctica are off the charts, covering more area than at any point since records began, and still going higher.
With supposed “global warming” still on pause for almost 18 years and counting, the United States has seen its coldest year ever so far in 2014, according to U.S. government temperature data compiled by climate researchers. Indeed, parts of the North American continent — particularly around the Great Lakes region — have seen temperatures as far as ten degrees below average between January and May. Thousands of new record lows have been recorded so far this year across the country, too.
Like virtually every alarmist global-warming warning produced by government or the United Nations in recent decades, it did not take long for the Obama administration’s latest doom-and-gloom-packed “climate change” report to be debunked by independent scientists. Indeed, it took less than two weeks for experts to go through the 840-page White House document and tear its outlandish claims to shreds — often using United Nations reports and the federal government’s own data to do so, issuing a blistering critique of the “nonsense” and “deception” put forward by the administration.
In what is nearly a replay of the Climategate e-mail scandal of the University of East Anglia, independent climate blogger Brandon Shollenberger has been threatened with a lawsuit and arrest if he releases data that climate alarmists left online unencrypted showing their claim that 97.1 percent of climate scientists “endorsed the consensus position that humans are causing global warming” is false — and a huge fabrication.
Speaking with Secretary of State John Kerry at the State Department on May 13, French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius asserted: “We have 500 days to avoid climate chaos.”
In what critics said was a transparent bid to build some semblance of support for more usurpations of power and its economy-crushing executive decrees on “global warming,” the Obama administration released a massive new report on “climate change” packed with alarmism, pseudo-science, and bizarre fear-mongering. Top White House officials warned that the American people, acting through their elected representatives in Congress, have “zero chance” of stopping the looming abuses. Opponents of the climate hysteria and escalating federal lawlessness, however, are not so sure.
