The release of a conveniently long-lost report showing that fracking is safe puts New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo in a tight spot: continue to appease environmentalists by delaying further the development of the rich Marcellus Formation under his state, or letting the free market extract those resources and generate thousands of jobs and millions in revenue to the state.
While brutal blizzards and freezing temperatures blanket much of the world, the major media keep up a steady drumbeat of alarmism concerning the nonexistent "crisis" of global warming.
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson has announced her resignation after four years at the EPA. Her tenure was marked by controversial policies involving a number of high-profile issues including global warming, the Keystone XL pipeline, and emissions controls on coal-fired plants. And recent scrutiny over Jackson’s use of an alias e-mail account has led some to believe that her resignation was inevitable.
Based on bogus science and flawed computer models, the federal EPA is clamping down on wood burning in Fairbanks and other cities and counties.
New studies show what Mother Nature has already proved: Computer models used by climate alarmists to arrive at their scary scenarios are deeply flawed, deficient — and sometimes downright fraudulent.
“It must be understood that what is occurring here, not just in Doha, but in the whole climate change process is a complete transformation of the economic structure of the world.” Thus spoke climate chief Christiana Figueres, at the recent United Nations Climate Summit in Doha, Qatar.
Activists worldwide were celebrating after a United Nations conference, which was seeking to hand control over the Internet to an obscure UN agency known as the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and its mostly dictatorial member regimes, ended in failure when a coalition of Western governments refused to back the schemes. However, analysts are warning that serious threats to the free and open Internet by the UN and a broad alliance of its authoritarian members are far from over.
The notion of the "new normal" of extreme weather is a farce, according to a recent report by the environmental group Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT), which was presented at the latest UN Climate Conference in Doha, Qatar, and only received press when British politician and author Lord Christopher Monckton was kicked out of the conference for presenting it.
UN Climate Summit chief Christiana Figueres says the UN is aiming for "a complete transformation of the economic structure of the world," a "centralized transformation" guided by ruling elites.
Lord Christopher Monckton had an opportunity to educate representatives of governments and dictatorships at the United Nations climate change summit in Doha, Qatar, about the fact that there has been no global warming for the last 16 years. However, after pretending to be a delegate from the regime ruling Burma to get at the microphone, the prominent climate realist was escorted from the UN Conference of the Parties (COP18) by the organization’s security.
