Federal ethanol policy harms the environment and does nothing to halt alleged global warming, but the Obama administration isn't about to change it because it benefits industries with powerful lobbies.
The so-called "hiatus" in temperature change since 1998 could be as simple as the rhythms of nature: ebb and flow, rise and fall, the changing of the seasons — as postulated by the stadium wave theory.
President Obama issued a new executive order Friday, which begins with a litany of increasing extreme weather events he claims are caused by global warming and uses to justify circumventing Congress to foist his climate change agenda on the country.
Despite the now-infamous lack of global warming for the last 17 years in defiance of all United Nations climate theories and predictions, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) formally called for humanity to submit to a planetary “carbon budget” supposedly aimed at stopping potential future temperature increases. The UN “budget,” based on the findings of its widely ridiculed Fifth Assessment Report (AR5), would drastically limit man-made CO2 emissions — and therefore energy use and economic activity — by empowering a global climate regime to rule over humanity.
Before the United Nations released the summary of its latest global-warming report last week, another major scientific report on climate change was already casting serious doubts on the escalating alarmism being peddled by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Produced by dozens of scientists with the independent Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, or NIPCC, the landmark document reviewed much of the same evidence as the UN body, but came to widely different conclusions about what the science really shows.
Moments after the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (UN IPCC) released a summary of its latest global-warming report on September 27, top climate scientists and experts were already reading through it and trashing the methods, findings, claims, and more. In fact, based on leaked drafts of the controversial report, critics had been debunking and ridiculing the UN’s climate claims for weeks prior to the official release. Once the summary report was officially released in Stockholm, the deluge of criticism accelerated, with more than a few top scientists calling for the UN IPCC to be disbanded entirely.
As independent experts point to growing evidence for global cooling amid a lack of warming over the past 16 years, the United Nations and its largely discredited Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a summary of its latest climate report that seems to be a desperate raise on a busted flush. The document, which is already coming under fierce criticism and even ridicule from scientists around the world, claimed that the UN and its politically selected “experts” were more confident than ever that humanity was to blame for increasing temperatures — even while admitting that temperatures had essentially not increased in defiance of all UN predictions.
As the United Nations prepares to release its latest report on “climate change,” leaked documents obtained recently by the Associated Press show that the Obama administration and other governments are pressuring the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to cover up the fact that “global warming” essentially has been essentially stopped for the last 16 years. The explosive revelations, already being described as “ClimateGate II” in the press, come amid a coordinated bid to revive the failing effort to adopt an international carbon regime in the coming years.
The Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency unveiled a series of far-reaching executive decrees on carbon dioxide Friday, supposedly aimed at dealing with “climate change” based on largely debunked United Nations theories about man-made “global warming.” Drawing a furious and immediate response from critics on both sides of the aisle, opponents slammed the proposed EPA regulations as everything from wildly unconstitutional overreach to another assault on the embattled U.S. economy and even a “war on coal.”
