Even the president's own advisors aren't buying into the global warming-is-causing-California's-drought narrative he promoted February 14.
The Obama administration and the Communist Chinese regime are officially teaming up to battle "global warming" as alarmists such as Al Gore and United Nations climate boss Christiana Figueres tout tyranny and population control as strategies.
President Obama’s dictatorial “green” agenda hit a snag at Senate confirmation hearings for his Fish and Wildlife Service/National Park Service nominee, Rhea Sun Suh.
A science debate on the origins of life between Bill Nye “The Science Guy” defending the theory of evolution and Biblical creationist leader Ken Ham, who supports the literal Genesis account in the Bible, drew a massive online audience estimated between 800,000 to as high as three million. All of the 800 or so tickets for the live event were gone within minutes of going on sale. The huge viewership highlighted the deep and ongoing interest in the subject among Americans, who according to polls still remain sharply divided on the origins of life.
A new environmental analysis on the Keystone XL pipeline is expected to irk environmentalists and opponents of the proposed project. Sources indicate, however, that the analysis is not the final word and does not provide a “specific recommendation,” but officials reveal that the report is ultimately supportive of the pipeline. The report was anticipated to be released today, but the State Department has not indicated an exact time, asserting only that it will be “soon.”
Multiple U.S. government bureaucracies including NOAA, NASA, and the Department of Energy are again being accused of inappropriately manipulating temperature data — or “adjusting” it, as officials at the agencies implicated in the scandal put it — to show global warming. While the accusations are not new, the latest scandal, sparked by an in-depth analysis of the data by independent analyst Steven Goddard at Real Science, relies on official records to suggest that federal agencies have been fudging temperature measurements to make past decades seem colder and recent years appear warmer.
Despite the alarmist “climate” claims made in an official press conference, the latest temperature data from two U.S. government bureaucracies actually show that the “pause” or “hiatus” in global warming that began some 17 years ago is still ongoing. The findings for last year, unveiled to reporters by NASA and NOAA on January 21, also showed that Antarctic sea ice extent in September of 2013 was the highest ever documented since records began.
E-mails obtained under a Freedom of Information Act request reveal that the Environmental Protection Agency has been plotting with environmental groups to kill the Keystone XL pipeline, which would run from Canada to Texas. The request was filed by the Energy and Environmental Legal Institute. Lawmakers indicate that the e-mails are “damning.”
A chapter of the Trans-Pacific Partnership released by WikiLeaks reveals potential violations of applicable U.S. environmental standards.
In apparent defiance of federal law and U.S. court rulings, unelected bureaucrats at the increasingly out-of-control Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other Obama administration departments unilaterally purported to grant control over the city of Riverton, Wyoming, to tribal authorities for the Wind River Indian tribes. At least two smaller towns are also affected.
The scheme appears to illustrate a growing United Nations-linked trend being witnessed across the United States and the world. In essence, vast amounts of private land and even entire towns are being taken over by authorities under various pretexts — UN agreements, Agenda 21 "sustainability," and supposed concerns about indigenous peoples — to advance a radical agenda targeting private property rights.
