Climate realists challenge global warming alarmism at Heartland Institute’s 9th International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC) in Las Vegas.
Climate change or not, the United States is still a pretty cool country — and getting cooler, according to temperature data of the National Ocean and Atmospheric Administration.
If climate-change scientists ever want to put their global-warming predictions on ice, they can find plenty of it down around the South Pole.
When the Obama administration failed in its bid five years ago to have the Democrat-controlled Congress create an unconstitutional cap-and-trade regime targeting carbon dioxide to fight “global warming,” it waited a few years, then imposed the radical scheme by executive decree. Rather than foisting it directly on businesses and individuals, Obama’s new presidential edicts purport to commandeer state governments for the purpose. The “regulations” even “graciously” offer states what the anti-CO2 zealots in the administration and its EPA describe as a “menu” of “policy options” they can “choose” from to comply with the edicts. Now, though, states are fighting back using everything from nullification to lawsuits.
