Gore wants to suppress climate debate

    

Overlooked in the debates about former Vice-President Al Gore’s global warming films, An Inconvenient Truth (2006) and An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power (2017), is the fact that truth is not possible in science. Scientific hypotheses, and even scientific theories, are not truth; they can be, and often are, wrong. Truth applies to mathematics, chess, […]

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 […]

Gore is wrong again about climate science

    

Al Gore expects us to believe that climate change science is settled. According to the former vice president, scientists know, with a high degree of certainty, that our emissions of greenhouse gases, 82 percent of which is carbon dioxide (CO2) in the United States, is causing dangerous climate change. The solution, Gore tells us, is […]

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 […]

Perry is correct about climate change

    

Energy Secretary Rick Perry did a remarkable thing recently: he expressed skepticism about the causes of climate change in a TV interview and, even after widespread condemnation from environmentalists and the press, he did it again a few days later before a major Senate committee. After telling a CNBC host on June 19 that he […]

Trump needs to kill the 1992 UN climate and Paris treaties

    

If President Donald Trump merely pulls the United States out of the Paris Agreement on climate change, it will be like cutting the head off a dandelion. It will look good for a while until equally bad agreements quickly grow back when a Democrat occupies the White House again. Trump needs to dig up the […]

Trump gets it just right on Earth Day

    

During a week of contentious trade issues between Canada and the United States, it was gratifying to see that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and U.S. President Donald Trump actually did agree on one thing—climate change was not even worth mentioning in their official Earth Day statements. In his official Earth Day statement, President Donald Trump […]

Inhofe is right when he said extremists will not give up

    

President Donald Trump is right to kill the Clean Power Plan (CPP). The rules only regulate emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), which even school children know is not unclean. CO2 is an essential reactant in plant photosynthesis and so necessary for all life on Earth. That’s why commercial greenhouse operators routinely run their internal atmospheres […]

Pruitt is the right person for the EPA

    

Democratic members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee boycotted the February 1 vote on President Donald Trump’s pick to head the Environmental Protection Agency largely because of the nominee’s position on climate change. For example, Committee member Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD) explained that he opposed Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt’s candidacy because he […]

Trump can cancel the Paris Agreement

    

At first glance, it seems that President-elect Donald Trump will have to wait until 2020 to pull the United States out of the United Nations Paris Agreement on climate change. According to the treaty’s withdrawal clause, any country that wishes to quit the agreement will have to wait three years from the date on which […]
