The Pope wasted no time in trumpeting the climate change fraud in his initial remarks on Wednesday at the White House.
Unable to convince Americans of the alleged dangers of man-made global warming using evidence or the scientific method — or even billions worth of tax-funded propaganda and manipulation — a group of self-styled climate scientists want a new weapon to make you believe their controversial theory: government coercion and even prosecution of climate heretics. In a letter to Obama and his attorney general, a team of 20 professors, echoing the recent factually challenged ramblings of Democrat Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), urged the administration to start prosecuting climate realists under the anti-mafia Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). In other words the debate is not really over after all, if the threat of prosecution must be employed in an attempt to end the allegedly non-existent debate.
Like the tornado season earlier this year, the hurricane season has been abnormally mild, defying the climate alarmist predictions that more intense and destructive "severe storms" are headed at us, due, allegedly, to human-caused global warming.
The so-called green agenda being relentlessly pursued by the Obama administration and its cronies represents a threat to U.S. military capabilities and therefore, to American national security, according to a recently released report blasting the “political fad” of so-called renewable energy.
During his Alaska tour this week, Obama ratcheted up hysteria over alleged “climate change,” claiming whole nations will be submerged underwater and cities abandoned.
As if the embattled “most-transparent-in-history” White House needed more e-mail scandals, the Obama administration's “science czar,” John Holdren, an advocate of coercive population control and a one-time global-cooling alarmist, is facing a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit to access public information that he has been apparently seeking to hide by using a private e-mail account. In the case, the non-partisan Competitive Enterprise Institute filed a federal appeal aiming to pry loose Holdren's e-mails from his account after a federal judge sided with Holdren, protecting his e-mails from public scrutiny.
On August 27, Judge Ralph Erickson of the District Court for the District of North Dakota ruled in favor of the 13 states suing to block the Obama administration's new Clean Water Rule (also known as The Waters of the United States rule), stating that implementation of the rule would threaten the states’ sovereignty.
The Obama administration's politicized bureaucracies are trying to deceive the world once again, this time claiming, falsely, that July of 2015 was the “warmest on record.” In the real world, it was not even the hottest July since last year, according to the global satellite temperature record, which is considered more reliable and comprehensive than the admittedly manipulated and incomplete data relied upon by NASA and NOAA to make their latest false “warmest on record” pronouncements. Virtually none of the establishment press bothered to mention the caveats on the methodology behind taking the Earth's temperature, preferring instead to parrot official press releases yet again.
The Obama administration made major waves on Tuesday when it proposed the first ever federal regulations that would require the nation’s oil and gas industry to cut emissions of methane. Congressional Republicans contend it's further proof of the administration’s collusion with environmental lobbyists to advance its climate-change agenda despite the lack of science to support it and regardless of the significant economic impact it is expected to have.
The EPA’s toxic mega-spill of millions of gallons of heavy metal-laden wastewater into Colorado’s Animas River is not EPA Chief Gina McCarthy’s only problem; a congressional committee is calling her on the carpet for lying during testimony to Congress.
