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.

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.
From The Terminator to D.A.R.Y.L, science-fiction writers have presented memorable, though very different, visions of “self-aware” robots. But now it’s being reported that science itself has taken a giant step toward creating what some fear may be our future robot overlords.
The polar vortex that is now sweeping across the Midwest is, according to some climatologist, evidence of global warming. The same phenomenon used to be evidence of a different type of climate change — a coming ice age.
YouTube will again adjust its algorithms to hide content they consider "harmful" to potential viewers. Content such as flat earth proponents or conspiracy theories. But who gets to decide what's a conspiracy theory and what is just an unapproved opinion?
Are the conveniences of Smart Homes worth the accompanying risks? Warnings from an expert at IBM Security indicate that the answer is “No.”
The end to emissions testing sounds especially odd in Washington, where last year environmental lobbyists attempted to place the United States’ first ever carbon tax on fossil fuel emissions.
For the past year, the news has been full of the unveiling of new weapon systems by China and Russia. On Thursday, President Trump announced America's answer to those new systems.
