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.

Amid the ongoing implosion of their man-made global-warming theory, thousands of bureaucrats involved in the United Nations “climate” circus are meeting in Lima, Peru, for two weeks to continue plotting their scheme to impose a planetary carbon regime on humanity. But the fix is already in, according to the global body. In a press release, the UN declared that its plan to foist draconian global controls on the world was essentially a done deal, with the summit in the Peruvian capital serving merely to “hammer out” the “new universal UN-backed treaty on climate change” that “will be adopted” at the global-warming conference in Paris next year. Obama’s pseudo-treaty with brutal communist dictator Xi Jinping is apparently the “model” being pursued for the global regime.

With Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.) in line to chair the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, the enviro-extremist and global warming alarmist choirs are going into apoplectic overdrive.
