    A former member of the Obama administration claims Washington, D.C., often uses “misleading” news releases about climate data to influence public opinion. Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obama’s administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion. “What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong,” Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data. He pointed to a National Climate Assessment in 2014 showing hurricane activity has...

    RUSH: Let me give you the headline here on this. It’s a Daily Caller story. Ready for this? “Former Obama Official: Bureaucrats Manipulate Climate Stats to Influence Policy.” No kidding! Exactly. But this looks like somebody from the Obama regime is owning up to it. In a sense saying, we’ve all been lied to about this. I just printed it out. I haven’t had a chance to read it yet but I’m one of the fastest digesters of news there is out there so I’ll digest this really fast as a fast digester does and I’ll get you the details...
  • Bill Nye Called Out CNN for Giving Climate Change Denial A Platform on Earth Day

    Bill Nye was invited to speak on CNN’s New Day Saturday program for Earth Day, along with May Boeve, the executive director of green action group 350.org; and William Happer, a climate change skeptic and physicist at Princeton. Nye was clearly exasperated with Happer’s claims, and annoyed that CNN had invited him. To enthusiastic nods from Boeve, Nye said, “I will say, much as I love the CNN, you’re doing a disservice by having one climate change skeptic and not 97 or 98 scientists or engineers concerned about climate change.” (CNN is hardly the first media organization to give these...
  • Politics Disguised as Science: When to Doubt a Scientific ‘Consensus’

    The Stream ^ | Jay Richards
    This week’s March for Science is odd. Marches are usually held to defend something that’s in peril. Does anyone really think big science is in danger? The mere fact that the March was scheduled for Earth Day betrays what the event is really about: politics. The organizers admitted as much early on, though they’re now busy trying to cover the event in sciencey camouflage. If past is prologue, expect to hear a lot about the supposed “consensus” on catastrophic climate change this week. The purpose of this claim is to shut up skeptical non-scientists. How should non-scientists respond when told...
  • An 11-Year-Old Is Suing Trump for His Climate Change Skepticism(vid at link)

    CBS News celebrated an eleven-year-old who is suing President Trump for his climate change skepticism. The kid, Avery McRae, said, "Trump is not doing anything to help stop climate change. He's a climate change denier, and we're going to prove that to — to the world." CBS felt like this was the cutest thing ever -- to possibly cost taxpayers oodles of money and perpetuate fake news. The journalist said, "Although their lawsuit may seem leak a long shot, who better to fight for the future than those who will be here to see it?"

    April 22 is Earth Day, the March for Science and Lenin’s birthday (which many say is appropriate, since environmentalism is now green on the outside and red, anti-free enterprise on the inside). April 29 will feature the People’s Climate March.The Climate March website says these forces of “The Resistance” intend to show President Trump they will fight his hated energy agenda every step of the way. Science March organizers say they won’t tolerate anyone who tries to “skew, ignore, misuse or interfere with science.”After eight years of government policies that killed jobs and economic growth – and skewed, ignored, misused,...

    Native American groups plan to make the Trump Hotel in Washington ground zero in their major protest next weekend against the president's energy and environment policies. Tribal groups will descend Thursday night on the grounds near the hotel to flash projections on its walls, dance, chant and give speeches ahead of Saturday's main event, the People's Climate March. The Indigenous Environmental Network, tribal nations, and aligned groups will hold the pre-protest rally at Trump's flagship hotel.

    Since the days of the great early 20th century polar explorers, scientists have noticed the unbelievably bright blue ponds and streams of meltwater that can form on the glaciers and ice shelves of Antarctica and were even crucial to the recent collapse of one ice shelf. While most research into Antarctic ice melt has concentrated on the impacts of warming ocean waters that are eating away at the ice from below, a new continent-wide survey shows that these surface meltwater drainage systems are much more prevalent around the continent than was previously thought. The systems, described in two new studies...

    We love Mother Earth and look forward to Earth Day, April 22. These are exciting times for energy, as innovation improves the conversion of wind, solar and geothermal heat into power for our offices, homes and electric cars. Our lives improve as energy options increase. On a day we celebrate the Earth, it is reasonable for people to also acknowledge the role fossil fuels play in helping maintain and even improve our planet's condition. Fossil fuels continue providing most of our energy and will do so for generations to come. Without fossil fuels, we cannot build a single solar panel...

    CNN apparently tried to be “fair and balanced” during the channel’s CNN Newsroom program on Tuesday morning, April 11, when co-hosts John Berman and Poppy Harlow moderated a debate that degenerated into an argument between political commentators Jeffrey Lord and Angela Rye that dealt with topics ranging from the relationship between America and Russia to global climate change. Rye’s comment to Lord came near the end of the segment, when she told him: “Climate change is a real thing. … Tell your friends that there are icebergs melting, OK? We have a real challenge, and your guy is dialing back...

    The U.S. refused to sign onto a statement with other G7 countries to commit to the implementation of the Paris climate agreement, which President Donald Trump promised to withdraw from on the campaign trail. Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said the U.S. “is in the process of reviewing many of its policies and reserves its position on this issue, which will be communicated at a future date,” Italy’s industry and energy minister Carlo Calenda said in a statement. Calenda said other G7 members “reaffirmed their commitment towards the implementation of the Paris Agreement to effectively limit the increase in global...

    The New American ^ | 29 March 2017 | Alex Newman
    Obama failed in his mission to make his "global-warming" schemes "Trump proof." Fulfilling some of his key campaign promises to voters, President Donald Trump moved Tuesday to dismantle huge swaths of the unconstitutional “climate” regime imposed on Americans by his predecessor. Among other important targets in Trump's latest executive order is Obama's “Clean Power Plan” decree, which sought to regulate emissions of carbon dioxide, also known to scientists as the “gas of life.” The measure signed by Trump also takes aim at multiple other schemes adopted by Obama that restricted energy production or killed jobs under the guise of stopping...

    Let the freak out begin. MSNBC and CNN on Tuesday went nuclear over Donald Trump’s move to roll back Barack Obama’s “signature” climate policies, whining that the President is “destroying” and “obliterating” the Democrat’s efforts. The CNN graphics department went into overdrive with one biased description reading, “Trump Signs Order Dismantling Obama Climate Record.”    That apparently wasn’t enough because a few minutes later it was changed to this: “Trump takes Hammer to Obama Climate Record.” On MSNBC, Kate Snow fretted that Trump signed “a sweeping new executive order just signed this afternoon instructs the Environmental Protection Agency to...

    A few days ago I had a conversation with a very smart university professor of history and somehow the climate change subject came up. Almost instantly he responded to my thoughts by saying: “You must be one of those deniers who rejects the science consensus.” This is the new form of intellectual bullying and it’s intentionally designed is to stop the conversation not advance it. In the academies it is a technique to close off scientific inquiry. When the liberals talk of ‎consensus, what consensus are they talking about? Of whom? ....... “Perpetual repetition.” “Unqualified environmental groups.” “Sensational headlines.” This...

    While Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will never admit it, the 2015 Paris climate treaty Canada signed with great fanfare died last week.It died because of the release of U.S. President Donald Trump’s 2018 budget plan.While Trump has to get it through the U.S. Congress, which means parts of it are unlikely to survive, his clear intention to gut U.S. climate change policy by dismantling the Environmental Protection Agency spells the death knell for the Paris treaty.Trump is proposing deeper cuts to the EPA than any other government agency, reducing its $8.2 billion budget by 31%, laying off 19% of its...

    The Trump administration is seeking to slash the budget of one of the government’s premier climate science agencies by 17 percent, delivering steep cuts to research funding and satellite programs, according to a four-page budget memo obtained by The Washington Post. The proposed cuts to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration would also eliminate funding for a variety of smaller programs, including external research, coastal management, estuary reserves and “coastal resilience,” which seeks to bolster the ability of coastal areas to withstand major storms and rising seas. NOAA is part of the Commerce Department, which would be hit by an overall 18 percent budget reduction from...

    Americans are split geographically on the topic of climate change, sometimes by county lines or congressional districts, according to new data released by Yale University's Program on Climate Change Communication. The Climate Opinion Maps give Americans an interactive glimpse into the country's view of threats from global warming. The survey results are sortable on the study's website, allowing users to see the Americans' opinions on climate change at a state, county and even metro level.
