The Obama administration and the Communist Chinese regime are officially teaming up to battle "global warming" as alarmists such as Al Gore and United Nations climate boss Christiana Figueres tout tyranny and population control as strategies.
President Obama’s dictatorial “green” agenda hit a snag at Senate confirmation hearings for his Fish and Wildlife Service/National Park Service nominee, Rhea Sun Suh.
A new environmental analysis on the Keystone XL pipeline is expected to irk environmentalists and opponents of the proposed project. Sources indicate, however, that the analysis is not the final word and does not provide a “specific recommendation,” but officials reveal that the report is ultimately supportive of the pipeline. The report was anticipated to be released today, but the State Department has not indicated an exact time, asserting only that it will be “soon.”
Multiple U.S. government bureaucracies including NOAA, NASA, and the Department of Energy are again being accused of inappropriately manipulating temperature data — or “adjusting” it, as officials at the agencies implicated in the scandal put it — to show global warming. While the accusations are not new, the latest scandal, sparked by an in-depth analysis of the data by independent analyst Steven Goddard at Real Science, relies on official records to suggest that federal agencies have been fudging temperature measurements to make past decades seem colder and recent years appear warmer.
Despite the alarmist “climate” claims made in an official press conference, the latest temperature data from two U.S. government bureaucracies actually show that the “pause” or “hiatus” in global warming that began some 17 years ago is still ongoing. The findings for last year, unveiled to reporters by NASA and NOAA on January 21, also showed that Antarctic sea ice extent in September of 2013 was the highest ever documented since records began.
