To coincide with the United Nations global warming summit in Doha, Qatar, the usual flurry of hysterical press releases repackaged as “news” and a barrage of dubious “studies” from tax-funded climate alarmists have made headlines in the establishment media — all of it, critics say, aimed at creating at least the perception of support for UN goals. Notably absent from the shrill warnings of gloom and doom about human carbon emissions, however, is one important fact: There has been no global warming, man-made or otherwise, for some 16 years, according to data compiled by the alarmists themselves.
Despite the embarrassing lack of any increase in planetary temperatures, climate-change alarmists and representatives from almost 200 governments and dictatorships are still assembled at the UN Conference of the Parties (COP18).
The Obama administration is ratcheting up its regulatory regime with the Endangered Species Act and the EPA, as prongs in its "crucifixion" strategy aimed at further socializing of the American economy.
The Obama administration has designated 9.6 million acres in Washington, Oregon, and California for the Spotted Owl, nearly doubling its protected habitat and greatly increasing the economic havoc associated with the "endangered" listing. As usual, the designation is based, not on science and proper constitutional powers, but purely politics.
Thousands of delegates representing almost 200 governments and dictatorships are gathering in Doha, Qatar, in a desperate bid to keep climate change alarmism alive long enough to create a United Nations-run planetary carbon regime. However, as the climate hysteria continues its march toward irrelevance following the spectacular implosion of UN global warming theories and multiple scandals in recent years, delegates at this year’s Conference of the Parties (COP18) know they are in a race against time.
Among the highest priorities of climate alarmists and UN types is the extension of a deeply controversial 1997 treaty known as the Kyoto Protocol, which expires at the end of the year.
Is the work of the American oil industry the moral equivalent of South African apartheid? Will coffee beans cease to exist before the end of this century? The most recent shrill outbursts from the environmental left offer the latest evidence for global warming; the silly season for news is extended later and later into the fall.
