Don’t waste money on failed UN policies

      

Dr. Thomas Sowell, Senior Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, summarized the problem the world faces with climate change policy: “Would you bet your paycheck on the weather forecast for tomorrow? If not, then why should this country bet billions on global warming predictions that have even less foundation?” Sowell is right to be skeptical. Meteorologists can’t forecast the […]

We can’t know the history of our climate

    

In November, French President Emmanuel Macron told the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany, that France would cover the cost of U.S. donations to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that President Donald Trump has vowed to cancel. Macron demonstrated that he does not understand the true nature of the IPCC when […]

Dishonesty over climate change report

      

Between July 31 and September 24, climate experts from around the world are providing comments on the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on 1.5°C Global Warming (SR15). We can expect SR15 to be highly biased and simply ignore findings that do not conform with the climate alarm. This is because, contrary to its original […]

Spread the truth about climate science

      

On June 1, President Donald Trump announced that the United States would withdraw from the United Nations Paris Agreement on climate change. He correctly identified it as a very bad deal for America. In July 1997, the U.S. Senate reached a similar conclusion about the U.N. climate change policy-making process in general. Senators from across […]

So what? to environmentalist alarmism

      

The best answer to most of the claims by climate activists and their political allies is simply: so what? “Climate change is real,” they say. So what? Gravity and sunrise are also real. That doesn’t mean we cause them or we would be better off without them. Climate has been changing since the origin of […]

EPA’s war on methane is ‘science’ for a political agenda

      

Bureaucrats have been given another political target in their misguided war on fossil fuels – methane. Methane emissions occur throughout the natural gas industry, for example. They come from normal operations and maintenance as well as due to unintended and irregular leaks and equipment venting. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) final rule on new, modified […]

Hurricane Patricia wasn’t so deadly

      

We were told that Hurricane Patricia was the strongest event of its kind in history. A quick look at the record books reveals that this is not true at all. Hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons are just different names for the same weather phenomenon: intense tropical cyclones (TC). The only difference between them is their locations. […]

Global warming is not the real crisis

      

The public is being told by politicians, bureaucrats, and activists that global warming will cause more extreme weather. Yet both the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) have said the exact opposite. In 2012, the IPCC said that a relationship between global warming and […]
