For the first time in over 10 years, a month has passed with no sunspot activity. In February of 2019, not one sunspot was recorded. Not since August of 2008, when the Sun was going through a time of Solar Minimum, has a month gone without a sunspot.
Unusually cold and wet weather will affect most of the lower 48 states in early March. But it's not evidence for or against global warming.
The Green New Deal could cost Americans as much as $93 trillion — and much more in lost liberties — over the course of a decade, according to an analysis by the American Action Forum.
The White House will create a committee of federal scientists to reconsider the conclusions of the National Climate Assessment released last November.
Leftist climate groups are continuing to use children to run interference for their socialist agenda, which they hope to forward through environmental and other lawsuits.
On Tuesday, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia upheld a Trump-era EPA rule that disqualifies scientists in receipt of grants from the EPA from holding any advisory position in the agency.
STOCKHOLM, Sweden — The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN IPCC) is misleading humanity about climate change and sea levels, a leading expert on sea levels who served on the UN IPCC told The New American. In fact, it is more likely that sea levels will decline, not rise, explained Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner, the retired head of the paleogeophysics and geodynamics at Stockholm University. A new solar-driven cooling period is not far off, he said. But when Mörner tried to warn the UN IPCC that it was publishing false information that would inevitably be discredited, they simply ignored him. And so, dismayed, he resigned in disgust and decided to blow the whistle.
Asked if coastal cities such as Miami would be flooding due to sea-level rise caused by alleged man-made global warming, Mörner was unequivocal: “Absolutely not.” “There is no rapid sea-level rise going on today, and there will not be,” he said, citing observable data. “On the contrary, if anything happens, the sea will go down a little.” The widely respected scientist, who has been tracking sea levels in various parts of the globe for some 50 years, blasted those who use incorrect “correction factors” in their data to make it appear that seas are rising worldwide. That is just wrong, he said.
CALGARY, Canada — The “Green New Deal” proposed by congressional Democrats is a “recipe for mass suicide” and the “most ridiculous scenario I ever heard,” Greenpeace Co-Founder Patrick Moore warned in an exclusive interview with The New American. In fact, Dr. Moore warned that if the “completely preposterous” prescriptions in the scheme were actually implemented, Americans could be forced to turn to cannibalism to avoid starvation — and they still would not survive. Other experts such as Craig Rucker, the executive director of the environmental group Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), also sounded the alarm about the “green” proposal in Congress, comparing it to Soviet five-year plans and calling it a “prescription for disaster.”
VIDEO - CALGARY, Canada--Free markets, private property, and the prosperity they produce are not just good for people, but they protect the environment as well, explained Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) Executive Director Craig Rucker. In an interview with The New American, Rucker pointed out that the countries with the cleanest environments are also the most economically free nations. "What's good for people is good for nature," he said, calling for pro-growth policies that benefit people rather than government-enforced scarcity. "It's like the old Chinese proverb: When there is food on the table, there are many problems; when there is no food on the table, there is one problem. Societies that do not take care of their people don't have the resources to take care of the planet. So it's no surprise that countries like the United States, like much of Europe, Australia, Japan--those that have the resources are the environmental leaders, and they are the ones attacked by the greens!" By contrast, societies with overbearing or even socialist governments such as the former Soviet Union have "abysmal" environmental records. He also drew a distinction between the "conservation" ethic, in which man is included in how to protect the planet, and the "preservation" ethic and the "Deep Green ecology" that views man as a "virus on the planet" that needs to be removed.
VIDEO - CALGARY, Canada--In this exclusive interview with The New American, Greenpeace co-founder Dr. Patrick Moore warns that the "Green New Deal" proposed by congressional Democrats is a "recipe for mass-suicide." Moore, who left Greenpeace for reasons he outlines in the interview, says millions of Americans would die if the policies outlined in the Green New Deal were implemented.
