    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...

    Useful arts in 18th Century usage would be what we call engineering or city planning or architecture, Nye said. Nyes used the argument before to underscore how unpatriotic it is to not have the federal government hand out billions of taxpayer dollars to universities, corporations and research institutions. Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution says the government shall promote the progress of science and useful arts,' Nye told Vox in 2015 Vox didnt correct him or fact check his claim. So if youre a politician looking to derail the progress of science, I think youre not doing your...

    Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin told The Wall Street Journal Monday that bureaucrats within former President Barack Obamas administration spun scientific data to manipulate public opinion. What you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, Id say, misleading, sometimes just wrong, Koonin said, referring to elements within the Obama administration he said were responsible for manipulating climate data.

    WASHINGTON (AP) Global warming's milder winters will likely nudge Americans off the couch more in the future, a rare, small benefit of climate change, a new study finds. With less chilly winters, Americans will be more likely to get outdoors, increasing their physical activity by as much as 2.5 percent by the end of the century, according to a new study in Monday's edition of the journal Nature Human Behaviour . Places like North Dakota, Minnesota and Maine are likely to see the most dramatic increases, usually the result of more walking. "It's a small little tiny silver lining...

    Its not surprising that a Liberal protest that began as an Earth Day pro-science march turned into another leftist anti-Trump rally. What else would you expect from an event that was inspired by the Womens March on Washington? The idea to create a march was inspired by the 2017 Women's March of January 21, 2017, and originated from a discussion in Reddit. Because if you read it on Reddit, it must be important.Hello, Im Dr. Science. Im not a real doctor but I do have a Masters Degreein Science!

    Bill Nye, known for his 1990s science kids show who has since become an outspoken advocate on climate change, accused CNN of doing a disservice to its audience on Saturday by having a real scientist on their network to discuss climate change. The CNN New Day Saturday panel, which included Nye and William Happer, a physicist at Princeton University, became heated after Happer said the climate change that Nye talks about is a myth. Theres this myth thats developed around carbon dioxide that its a pollutant, but you and I both exhale carbon dioxide with every breath. Each of...

    Bill Nye was invited to speak on CNNs 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 Happers claims, and annoyed that CNN had invited him. To enthusiastic nods from Boeve, Nye said, I will say, much as I love the CNN, youre 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...

    UNITED NATIONS President Trump, who recently had Ted Nugent, Sarah Palin and Kid Rock over for a White House dinner, is planning to host 14 diplomats from around the world for lunch on Monday. The diplomats are members of the powerful United Nations Security Council, an eclectic mix of Americas friends and rivals, and plenty of skeptics. Their guide to the White House is Mr. Trumps outspoken envoy, Nikki R. Haley. Halibut is on the menu, and a cheese souffl, which one Council diplomat hoped would not be the most substantial part of the White House visit. As of...

    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?"

    Federal scientist cooked climate change books ahead of Obama presentation, whistle blower charges. Trump critics say they are concerned about the presidents proposed cutbacks for the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Institutes of Health, his administrations skepticism about the cause of climate change and other science-related issues. However, organizers say the march was political but not partisan -- to in fact promote the understanding of science and defending it from attacks, including a proposed 20 percent cutback at the NIH. "It's not about the current administration, said co-organizer and public health researcher Caroline Weinberg. The truth is we...

    The Stream ^ | Jay Richards
    This weeks March for Science is odd. Marches are usually held to defend something thats 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 theyre 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...

    Today is the 47th annual Earth Day. On this day, it is worth reflecting on how completely, totally wrong environmental alarmists often are. Few things tell us more about the environmental movementwhere its been and, more importantly, where it is nowthan its dismal track record in the predictive department.Case in point: Paul Ehrlich, who is as close to a rock star as youre apt to find among environmentalists. Ehrlich is most famous for his 1968 book The Population Bomb, in which he famously predicted that, during the 1970s and 1980s, humanity would suffer mass famine and starvation due to overpopulation....

    Saturday is Earth Day an annual event first launched on April 22, 1970. The inaugural festivities (organized in part by then hippie and now convicted murderer Ira Einhorn) predicted death, destruction and disease unless we did exactly as progressives commanded. Sound familiar? Behold the coming apocalypse, as predicted on and around Earth Day, 1970: Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.

    The March for Science materialized as a global event on six continents and cheered on by scientists on a seventh, Antarctica. On the National mall, the crowd has been large, with thousands of people gathered on the grounds of the Washington Monument and lines for the security checkpoints stretching for more than two blocks. Rain has varied from light to borderline apocalyptic, but that didnt stop people from dancing when Thomas Dolby performed his 1982 blockbuster hit She Blinded Me With Science. The march proper is scheduled for 2 p.m., and will proceed down Constitution Avenue to the foot...

    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...

Organizers insist that the demonstrations -- anchored by a major rally in Washington on Earth Day, April 22 -- are not aimed specifically at US President Donald Trump or any political party.

    Recently, President Trump signed a landmark executive order (EO) largely curtailing the climate change initiatives of President Obama. According to American Action Forum (AAF) research, this order addresses $14.6 billion in past rulemakings and more than one million paperwork burden hours. Designed to promote domestic energy, with particular attention to oil, natural gas, coal, and nuclear energy resources, the order directs federal agencies to suspend, revise, or rescind past regulations, mainly from EPA and the Department of Interior. The order also states that these efforts may work in conjunction with EO 13,771, which established a regulatory budget in the United...
