    The U.K.’s Climate Change Act of 2008 will cost the average British household about $13,703 by the year 2030, according to a new report by The Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF). The levies, taxes and subsidies associated with the Climate Change Act cost the average British household $415 in 2014 alone, which will rise to an estimated $791 annually by 2020 and $1,110 each year by 2030, according to the report. The total costs of the policy will add up to three times the annual British National Health Service (NHS) budget. GWPF’s report says that the government only considered about...

    Even as the city is sounding the alarm on climate change’s impact on the future of life in Boston, one major developer remains skeptical. John B. Hynes III is the CEO and managing partner of Boston Global Investors, which is developing much of the 23-acre, $3.5 billion Seaport Square project in South Boston. And while he’s willing to build to state and local officials’ specifications, Hynes doesn’t buy into the whole hullabaloo of raising sea levels and the like. “I have my doubts,” Hynes told the Herald. “The global warming phenomenon that everybody’s worried about is nothing more than historic...

    President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team circulated a questionnaire to the Department of Energy requesting information about specific employees who’ve worked on climate change policies, according to documents obtained by The New York Times. Several questions pertain to some of the agency’s procedural responsibilities, but it also asks for the identities of employees instrumental in developing climate policies. DOE employees provided The NYT with the list under the promise of anonymity. “Can you provide a list of all Department of Energy employees or contractors who have attended Interagency Working Group on the Social Cost of Carbon meetings?” reads one of the...

    Environmental activists are afraid the Trump administration will alter or delete data sets scientists use to track global warming after the president-elect takes control in January. The accusation, first reported by Mashable, has gotten at least one climate scientist to create a list of climate data sets his colleagues don’t want to see deleted.The genesis of such fears seems to have been a Mashable article published Saturday, citing Michael Halpern, an activist with the Union of Concerned Scientists.

    The little green men who fancy themselves as moral environmentalists enjoy gloating about the 97% of scientists who say man is causing his planet to warm. It's their way of saying: The science is settled, the consensus is in and no further debate is allowed — now let us run the world so we can satisfy our authoritarian urges. But not only is their 97% claim bunk, science is never settled and even a 100% agreement on any "scientific fact" is subject to change. Consider the scientific understanding of gravity.

    Donald Trump said again on Sunday that he is “open-minded” about climate change -- but also that “nobody really knows” the truth about the issue, which contradicts the fact that there is near-universal scientific agreement on the issue. In an interview with “Fox News Sunday,” moderator Chris Wallace pointed out to Mr. Trump that in the space of a week he bothmet with former Vice President Al Gore and appointed Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, a climate change denier who has opposed many environmental regulations, to head the Environmental Protection Agency.

    Global warming activists won’t be satisfied until the Earth freezes over and nothing survives. They relentlessly use obnoxious pictures of polar bears floating on melting sea ice to guilt people into believing we’re to blame. They chose the wrong animal as their “poster child.” Polar bears aren’t cuddly little snowballs who sip on colas all day and use a hunting rifle to compassionately put their prey out of misery when it’s snack time. Instead, polar bears use ambush tactics and sharp claws and teeth to feast on cute little seals they sometimes eat alive while kicking and screaming. They also...

    Personnel is policy, as they say, and despite his meeting with the High Priest of Climatology, Al Gore, president-elect Donald Trump’s pick of Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt to be the new head at EPA, shows Trump is serious about pulling back the curtain to expose climate fraud, leaving climate zealots as unsettled as the alleged “science” they trumpet. Pruitt has already fought the various unconstitutional power grabs that essentially established it as the fourth and unelected branch of government. As Tom Borelli notes in Conservative Review: Pruitt’s concerns of EPA overreach also includes the agency’s controversial, “Waters of the...

Old log books kept by Scott and Shackleton show that Antarctic sea ice hasn’t changed much since 1912 reports Joanne Nova. Experts have been concerned that ice at the South Pole had declined significantly since the 1950s, which they feared was driven by man-made climate change.

He’s got a lot of work ahead of him: Federal agencies plan to spend $27 billion on global warming-related programs next year. The White House reported to House Republicans that 18 federal agencies combined spent about $22 billion on global warming activities in 2013, but defined global warming much more narrowly than the agencies themselves. Federal agencies want to spend $12 billion on global warming programs in 2017, according to Salon, but the left-wing news site only factored in six...

    Let’s assume global warming is real. Correct or not, we will start today with that supposition. Assume with me that there is a problem for a moment so that we may discuss tangible solutions. Let us start by defining our terminology, as the concept of "climate change" tends to drift to fit the data—the true hallmark of scientific rigor. The argument at hand is that the earth is warming due to greenhouse gases which man is releasing into the atmosphere; most especially carbon dioxide. This has been culminating since around the time of the post-war industrial boom accompanying and following...

    Global land temperatures have plummeted by one degree Celsius since the middle of this year – the biggest and steepest fall on record. But the news has been greeted with an eerie silence by the world’s alarmist community. You’d almost imagine that when temperatures shoot up it’s catastrophic climate change which requires dramatic headlines across the mainstream media and demands for urgent action. But that when they fall even more precipitously it’s just a case of “nothing to see here”. The cause of the fall is a La Nina event following in the wake of an unusual strong El Nino.

    California’s desire to combat so-called global warming has led it to attack what it believes is deadly even if it is often silent – cow flatulence. According to an AP report, the self-proclaimed leading agricultural state is now focusing on what it calls “greenhouse gases” produced by dairy cows. In spite of opposition from farmers, California Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation that regulates heat-trapping gases from livestock businesses for the first time. Cattle and other farm animals produce methane, a gas that is referred to as a greenhouse gas and alleged to be more potent than carbon dioxide as a...

    California is taking its fight against global warming to the farm. The nation's leading agricultural state is now targeting greenhouse gases produced by dairy cows and other livestock. Despite strong opposition from farmers, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation in September that for the first time regulates heat-trapping gases from livestock operations and landfills.

    Pope Francis has issued a climate change challenge directly to President Elect Trump. The Pope, in thinly veiled speech, urged Trump not to withdraw the U.S. from the United Nations Paris agreement reached in 2015. The UN treaty has been said by critics to be “history’s most expensive treaty’,” with a “cost of between $1 trillion and $2 trillion annually.” Pope Francis warned of the “crisis of climate change.” “The ‘distraction’ or delay in implementing global agreements on the environment shows that politics has become submissive to a technology and economy which seek profit above all else,” Francis said, in...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump plans to dismantle President Barack Obama's efforts to reduce planet-warming carbon emissions. But delivering on his campaign pledges to abolish the Environmental Protection Agency and bring back tens of thousands of long-gone coal mining jobs could prove far more difficult. Internal documents from the president-elect's transition team reviewed by The Associated Press show the new administration plans to stop defending the Clean Power Plan and other recent Obama-era environmental regulations that have been the subject of long-running legal challenges filed by Republican-led states and the fossil fuel industry.

    Tue Nov 15, 2016 Exclusive: Billionaire Green Activist Steyer Vows To Battle Trump, Says Money Not An Issue By Richard Valdmanis BOSTON Billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer, who has spent more than $140 million on fighting climate change, said on Tuesday he will spend whatever it takes to fight President-elect Donald Trump's pro-drilling and anti-regulation agenda. The former hedge fund manager from California is putting together a strategy that will "engage voters and citizens to fight back" once Trump takes the White House in January, he told Reuters in an interview. However, he stressed he was not planning to fight...
  • Trump seems ready to fight the world on climate change. But he's likely to meet resistance

    Donald Trump is branded with all manner of unflattering labels, but one that hasn’t seemed to much bother him is “climate pariah.” The president-elect is unabashed in his disdain for America’s global warming policy. He has placed a staunch climate-change doubter and antagonist of mainstream science in charge of reshaping — or as Trump has suggested, dismantling — the Environmental Protection Agency. He has talked frequently about reneging on the historic Paris global climate treaty the U.S. took a lead in drafting. And he has said he wants every federal green-energy program eliminated.

    Is there reason to doubt climate change because some of the nation’s hottest days happened in 1898, as President-elect Donald Trump told the New York Times in an interview Tuesday? In an exchange with Times publisher Arthur Sulzberger Jr. and staff about climate change on Tuesday (Nov. 22), Trump said, “I have an open mind to it,” but later added, “You know the hottest day ever was in 1890-something, 98. You know, you can make lots of cases for different views.” However, it’s misleading to single out a weather event — such as a particularly hot day in 1898 — as evidence...

    President-elect Donald J. Trump has vowed to dismantle many of the signature policies put in place by the Obama administration to fight the effects of climate change. During the campaign, he threatened, among other things, to kill the Clean Power Plan, a set of rules to reduce emissions from power plants. He has also taken aim at new regulations to limit methane leaks from wells and pipelines. And members of his transition team have suggested that he may reduce or eliminate basic climate research at NASA or other agencies. If he follows through, most of these moves will be opposed...

    Anti-Trump protests continue to swell across the country, but what best sums up the president-elect’s challenge was a Monday night tantrum barely noticed by the press. Climate activists in Washington, D.C., waited until dark, then beamed huge images onto the headquarters of the Environmental Protection Agency. Their demand? That Donald Trump pick someone other than Myron Ebell to lead the EPA.
