The establishment media is once again further discrediting itself by hyping brazenly bogus “warmest on record” claims, this time arguing falsely that 2014 was the “hottest year ever.” In reality, it was not even close.

Experts also pointed out that the “pause” in global warming has now been ongoing for almost two decades, contrary to every United Nations prediction. However, desperate for some sort of scary “climate” story to generate some semblance of support for shackling humanity to a UN CO2 regime, the international press and global-warming theorists are citing the dubious data set from the Japan Meteorological Agency to make their case. More cooked government data and fear-mongering by the media claiming 2014 was the “hottest year ever recorded” is expected in the coming weeks. The biggest problem is that the claim is not true — just like the vast majority of the other times that tax-funded alarmists and the increasingly discredited media parroted the same claim.

Polar bears, the totem of the global-warming alarmists, are thriving, not facing extinction, as the doomsayers proclaim.

Climate alarmists consistently ignore actual temperature data because it refutes their outlandish claims that mankind is destroying the Earth and undermines their goals of higher taxes, bigger government, and “alternative” energy.

Newly empowered Republican lawmakers are threatening to protect U.S. taxpayers from being fleeced again by the Obama administration, which in late 2014 promised to send another $3 billion of American money to a United Nations climate fund. Under the guise of fighting global warming, the UN scheme is mostly aimed at redistributing wealth from what remains of the Western middle class to Third World dictators. However, after the GOP trounced establishment-backed climate alarmists in the mid-term election, lawmakers say Congress is almost certain to scale back funding — if not end it completely — for the increasingly extremist and discredited global warming plots pushed by the White House and the dictator-dominated UN.

Obama’s EPA has grand visions of controlling everything under the sun: soot, road dust, rainwater runoff, pesticides, chlorine, methane, ozone, chloroflourocarbons, and, most especially, CO2 — human breath — which, far from being a pollutant, is a beneficial gas that is essential for plant life on this planet.
