    By Dr. Tim Ball and Tom HarrisPresident Donald Trump announced the U.S. withdrawal from the Paris Agreement on climate change because it is a bad deal for America. He could have made the decision simply because the science is false, but most of the public have been brainwashed into believing it is correct and wouldn’t understand the reason. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and indeed the leaders of many western democracies, though thankfully not the U.S., support the Agreement and are completely unaware of the gross deficiencies in the science. If they did, they wouldn’t be forcing a carbon dioxide (CO2) tax, on...

    The Trump administration will reverse course from previous Obama administration policy, eliminating climate change from a list of national security threats. The National Security Strategy to be released on Monday will emphasize the importance of balancing energy security with economic development and environmental protection, according to a source who has seen the document and shared excerpts of a late draft. Climate policies will continue to shape the global energy system, a draft of the National Security Strategy slated to be released on Monday said. U.S. leadership is indispensable to countering an anti-growth, energy agenda that is detrimental to U.S. economic...

    When Amazon kicked off a bidding war for its second North American headquarters in September, the company laid out a vision of its perfect suitor. The ideal city would have more than a million people, mass transit, an international airport, attractive housing and stable and business-friendly regulations. But the retail goliath apparently isnt worried about how surging seas, extreme weather and deadly heat waves might affect its operations or the 50,000 employees it promises to hire in its new $5 billion second home. The company also doesnt seem overly concerned with how much its ravenous appetite for energy and reliance...

    Its hard to be optimistic about climate action, not in a week when federal scientists reported that the Arctic shows no sign of returning to the reliably frozen region of recent past decades. Not in a month when Californias wildfires show every sign of burning straight through Christmas. And not in a moment when the federal government keeps scrubbing basic climate information from its websites. But something big is starting to shift. After years of effort from activists, there are signs that the worlds financial community is finally rousing itself in the fight against global warming. A foretaste came last...

    Extreme weather left its mark across the planet in 2016, the hottest year in recorded history. Record heat baked Asia and the Arctic. Droughts gripped Brazil and southern Africa. The Great Barrier Reef suffered its worst bleaching event in memory, killing large swaths of coral. Now climate scientists are starting to tease out which of last years calamities can, and cant, be linked to global warming. In a new collection of papers published Wednesday in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, researchers around the world analyzed 27 extreme weather events from 2016 and found that human-caused climate change was...

    French President Emmanuel Macron issued a stark warning on climate change at a summit in Paris on Tuesday, telling world leaders we are losing the battle against global warming. Were not moving fast enough, thats the problem, Macron told the One Planet Summit called to boost the 2015 Paris climate accord, which US President Donald Trump has renounced. We must all act because we will all be held to account, Macron told the gathering on an island in the River Seine, adding: We cannot say we did not know. Dozens of world leaders and hundreds of ministers, company bosses, and...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown and former Vice President Al Gore lead the list of those blaming climate change for Southern Californias devastating wildfires, calling them the new normal, but others insist the science just isnt there. That includes climate scientists such as University of Washington meteorologist Cliff Mass, who moved to extinguish the now normal narrative by arguing that the data strongly suggests there is no credible evidence that global warming is fueling this falls California coastal wildfires, and that claims to the contrary are baseless, if not outright wrong. The bottom line of all this is that observations and...

    California Governor Jerry Brown said the wildfires ravaging the greater Los Angeles area are part of a "new normal" residents can expect due to man-made global warming. [Snip] "With climate change, some scientists are saying that Southern California is literally burning up," Brown said, according to CNN. "So we have to have the resources to combat the fires and we also have to invest in managing the vegetation and forests ... in a place that's getting hotter." Brown's statements, though ominous, arent in line with the scientific consensus.

    **SNIP** The Oscar buzz comes despite pushback from skeptics, led by University of Alabama in Huntsville climatologist Roy Spencer, a former NASA scientist who accused Mr. Gore of attributing natural phenomena to human-caused climate change. In September, Mr. Spencer published an 84-page e-book, An Inconvenient Deception, which blasted the film as bursting with bad science, bad policy, and some outright falsehoods. An Inconvenient Truth was similarly rebuked by skeptics Danish academic Bjorn Lomborg challenged it in a book and film called Cool Itbut the movie earned $24 million at the box office, making it the 11th-highest grossing documentary of...

    Pope Francis has once again underscored the perils of manmade climate change, urging nations to adopt practical measures to counteract its effects. After his Angelus message in Saint Peters Square Sunday, the Pope gave a shout-out to the One Planet Summit that will take place in Paris this week, voicing his hopes for the summits success in fighting climate change. Two years after the adoption of the Paris climate agreement, the summit will renew its commitment and consolidate a shared strategy to counter the worrisome phenomenon of climate change, the pontiff stated. I strongly hope that this summit, as well...

    The Vatican called pro-choice California Gov. Jerry Brown a leader who defends the dignity and freedom of each person in a tweet lauding the governors climate change crusade. Earlier this month Brown patted himself on the back for a two-week European climate change tour that included the Vatican, according to Life Site News. In his Vatican address, Brown spoke of brainwashing people in order to convince them of man-made climate change. Brown called for not just a light rinse, but rather, We need a total, I might say, brainwashing.

    California Gov. Jerry Brown took the anti-Trump resistance to the Vatican over the weekend, declaring that the world is in need of a so-called brainwashing on climate change. In an appearance Saturday at an event organized by the Vaticans Pontifical Academy of Sciences, Mr. Brown assured leaders that the Trump factor on climate change is minimal compared to the efforts taking place worldwide, but that its not the only problem fueling delusions on the climate threat, The Sacramento Beereported. The Trump factor is very small, very small indeed, the Democratic governor, who has been a vocal opponent of the presidents...

    Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey wants gas station owners to post warnings at the pump that say customers are spurring climate change by filling up their tanks. The idea came up in oral arguments in Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Tuesday in a case challenging Exxon Mobil's record on addressing the threat of global warming and the attorney general's claim that the company misinformed the public over the threat. Justice Frank Gaziano asked how gas stations are involved in "deception or fraud related to climate change." "Because, your honor, the gas sold at those gas stations is among the premier contributors...

    As a mom of three young kids, Im careful about what theyre exposed to on television, and I screen the shows they watch to confirm they reflect our family values of respect and courteousness. Thats why my kids are banned from watching the Disney Channel. The Disney Channel and its spin-off, Disney XD, are no longer safe spaces for kids. The kid characters on Disneys shows are often mouthy and disrespectful to parents and authority figures (who are usually scripted as muddle-headed and embarrassingly square). Even many of the strange animated characters make crass and nasty comments. Shockingly, both my...

    Alarmist scientists have been caught red-handedtampering with raw data in order to exaggerate sea level rise.The raw (unadjusted) datafromthree Indian Ocean gauges Aden, Karachi and Mumbai showed that local sea level trends in the last 140 years had been very gently rising, neutral or negative (ie sea levels had fallen). But after the evidence had been adjusted by tidal records gatekeepers at the global databank Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) it suddenly showed a sharp and dramatic rise.Thewhistle was blown by two Australian scientistsDr. Albert ParkerandDr. Clifford Ollier in a paper forEarth Systems and Environment.

    Mayors from 51 cities from across the U.S. and around the world are meeting in Chicago to hear from former President Obama and sign a document they are calling the Chicago Climate Charter. President Trump announced his intention to pull the U.S. out of the UNs Paris Climate Accord, however, the terms of the Accord delay his taking formal action until November, 2019. The mayors gathered in Chicago, meanwhile, are vowing to bypass the federal government and create climate policies of their own. USA Today reports that the Chicago Charter calls for reducing greenhouse gas emissions at least 26% to...

    California could be hit with significantly more dangerous and more frequent droughts in the near future as changes in weather patterns triggered by global warming block rainfall from reaching the state, according to new research led by scientists at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Using complex new modeling, the scientists have found that rapidly melting Arctic sea ice now threatens to diminish precipitation over California by as much as 15% within 20 to 30 years. Such a change would have profound economic impacts in a state where the most recent drought drained several billion dollars out of the economy, severely stressed...

    A growing body of research concludes that rising global temperatures increase the risk of heat stress and stroke, decrease productivity and economic output, widen global wealth disparities, and can trigger greater violence. Now a new study by researchers at Stanford, the University of California, Berkeley, and the U.S. Department of the Treasury suggests that even short periods of extreme heat can carry long-term consequences for children and their financial future. Specifically, heat waves during an individual’s early childhood, including the period before birth, can affect his or her earnings three decades later, according to the paper, published on Monday in...
