In his commencement address at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut on May 20, President Obama elaborated on "the challenge I want to focus on today — one where our Coast Guardsmen are already on the front lines, and that, perhaps more than any other, will shape your entire careers — and that’s the urgent need to combat and adapt to climate change."
A NASA study released on May 14 claims that the Larsen B Ice Shelf in Antarctica is weakening quickly and will likely disintegrate completely in the next few years, contributing to rising sea levels. However, other NASA data released in May dispels this gloomy forecast, and shows show polar sea ice is approximately five percent above the post-1979 average. It was in 1979 that satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps, so figures from that year serve as a base line.
The United Nations climate czar and various alarmist media outlets this week sought to dismiss as a “joke” recent comments by a top advisor to Australian leader Tony Abbott on the man-made global warming “hoax” being used to advance global tyranny. In an explosive column, Maurice Newman, chairman of the Prime Minister’s Business Advisory Council, argued that theories on alleged human-caused climate change were not only bogus, but are serving as the basis for imposing a totalitarian “new world order” on humanity. Despite the uproar among global-warming theorists, UN bureaucrats, and the alarmist press, the evidence suggests Newman is correct.
Critics ask the Holy See to stop allying itself with the statist, anti-Catholic, pro-abortion, population control advocates of the United Nations and NGOs who are using global warming fear to push harmful policies.
The joint statement issued by Pope Francis in collaboration with world leaders who met April 28 for the Vatican's environmental conference is packed with bureaucratic jargon that levels a frontal assault on industrialized prosperity, free-market capitalism, and human procreation.
A team of top scientists and experts is launching a major inquiry into the integrity, or lack thereof, of the surface temperature data often cited by anthropogenic (man-made) global-warming theorists to justify their alarmism, the Global Warming Policy Foundation announced on April 26. Minor increases in the world’s surface temperature data, which is admittedly “adjusted” by governments for various reasons, has been key to demanding global policies restricting carbon emissions and economic freedom to supposedly fight climate change ever since the man-made “global cooling” theory imploded after its heyday in the 1970s. However, if the inquiry ends up confirming widely held suspicions that the warming data is inaccurate or even outright fraudulent, the entire climate-alarmism industry could be permanently crushed.
A team of independent climate scientists and policy experts is headed to Rome to educate Pope Francis about climate science in advance of the Vatican's April 28 environmentalist conference.
Many renowned scientists have criticized the computer models used by the global warming alarming industry, pointing out, for example, that the models omit many of the most important factors in our planet's complex climate system: clouds, water vapor, volcanoes, ocean circulation, solar activity, and more.
