Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, said during his opening breakfast keynote speech at the Heartland Institute’s Tenth International Conference on Climate Change in Washington, D.C., on June 11 that Pope Francis should stay out of the ongoing debate regarding climate change and man’s alleged contribution to global warming.
Richard Branson, chairman of Virgin Group Ltd., has offered a $25-million prize for the best solution for ending so-called global warming using geoengineering (also called climate engineering), which is the deliberate and large-scale intervention in the Earth’s climatic system.
The Environmental Protection Agency has declared that the emissions from airplanes endanger human health and contribute to climate change, setting the stage for airplane emissions to be regulated.
The G7 Summit in Germany is both being hailed as a huge breakthrough and condemned as a giant letdown by global-warming acolytes — in the run-up to the UN’s global Climate Summits in New York and Paris later this year.
Lord Christopher Monckton — who was chief policy advisor to the Science and Public Policy Institute and former special advisor to former U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher from 1982 to 1986 — stated in an exclusive report for Climate Depot on June 3 that there has been no global warming at all for 18 years and six months, since December 1996.
Although subject to revision, a report from the EPA appears to be a clear win not only for fracking but for common sense as well.
When former senior NASA climatologist Dr. Roy Spencer referred last year to vicious climate alarmists as “global warming Nazis” who threaten humanity, he may have been closer to the truth than even he realized at the time. Writing in the Washington Post last week, Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) called on the Obama administration to use the anti-gangster Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) to persecute those who cast doubt on the increasingly discredited man-made global-warming theory — a theory that just four in 10 Americans believe, but that underpins a wide array of statist scheming at the national and global levels.
The United Nations and its member regimes must sidestep the U.S. Constitution and the American people’s elected representatives to save the world from global warming, declared French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius. Speaking to representatives of African governments and dictators during UN “climate” talks in Germany on Monday, the Socialist Party foreign policy chief explained that the U.S. Congress would refuse to approve the proposed planetary climate regime. As such, the emerging agreement, set to be finalized in Paris later this year, must be imposed on the United States by the Obama administration and the UN — without the consent of the American people’s elected representatives or the treaty ratification process outlined in the U.S. Constitution. Obama has already indicated his support for the radical strategy.
The United Nations and its dizzying array of agencies, along with the UN Foundation, media “partners,” and other allies, are preparing a massive propaganda campaign to promote the next 15-year UN “sustainable development” master plan for humanity and the planet. From unleashing what is being described as the “world’s largest advertising campaign” to “training” and subsidizing so-called journalists to report favorably on the scheming, the UN and its friends are going all-out on “public relations” — much of it with your money. The UN Communications Group will also be training the outfit’s chief propaganda operatives from around the world in mid-June on how to “tell the UN story” and get journalists onboard to push the sustainability plan.
Officially dubbed the “Post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals,” the controversial plot the UN will be promoting and foisting on the world represents a brazen attack on liberty, self-government, and national sovereignty — all under the guise of “solving” all of the world’s real and imagined problems.
In his commencement address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut on May 20, President Obama elaborated on "the challenge I want to focus on today — one where our Coast Guardsmen are already on the front lines, and that, perhaps more than any other, will shape your entire careers — and that’s the urgent need to combat and adapt to climate change."
A NASA study released on May 14 claims that the Larsen B Ice Shelf in Antarctica is weakening quickly and will likely disintegrate completely in the next few years, contributing to rising sea levels. However, other NASA data released in May dispels this gloomy forecast, and shows show polar sea ice is approximately five percent above the post-1979 average. It was in 1979 that satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps, so figures from that year serve as a base line.
