In the almost two and a half years since former NSA contractor Ed Snowden revealed the ubiquitous surveillance under which the world lives, much of the focus has been on what government agencies are doing.

PARIS — In exchange for going along with the United Nations “climate” agenda, the world's largest coalition of Third World dictators and backwards regimes is demanding more than $100 billion per year in global-warming reparations from Western taxpayers.
On November 20 Kathryn Sullivan, the head of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), sent a response to Representative Lamar Smith (R-Texas), chairman of the U.S. House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology. In what has become a heated debate in the wake of a climate study published by NOAA in the journal Science, Sullivan stated, “I have not or will not allow anyone to manipulate the science or coerce the scientists who work for me.
Speaking at a United Nations “climate” summit in Paris, Obama blamed America for alleged man-made global warming and claimed that the nation embraces its responsibility to “do something” about the supposed problem. That “something,” of course, at least in the administration's view, involves redistributing the wealth of embattled U.S. taxpayers to Third World governments and dictatorships for climate reparations, as well as shackling the American economy with draconian controls to reduce emissions of what serious scientists know as the “gas of life.”
This year’s hurricane season officially ended on November 30 without Florida — a state traditionally a prime target for such storms — having experienced even one major tropical storm. It also marked the 10th consecutive year that Florida has avoided having a hurricane make landfall, the last being Wilma on Oct. 24, 2005.
