  • How Team Trump plans to kill Obama’s Paris climate deal by declaring it a treaty

    As President Trump’s top advisers prepare to hash out a final policy on the Paris climate agreement dumped onto their laps by President Obama, another option has hit the table: Declare the deal a treaty and send it to the Senate to be killed. The treaty option could emerge as the middle ground in the increasingly tense battle between “remainers” on the one hand, who say the president should abide by Mr. Obama’s global warming deal, and the Paris agreement’s detractors, who say Mr. Trump would be breaking a key campaign promise if he doesn’t withdraw from the pact. Mr....

    Bill Nye “the Science Guy,” famous for hosting a children’s educational TV show, is not as kid-friendly as he initially may appear. An abortion advocate, Nye recently hosted a new Netflix show that The Federalist describes as bordering on eugenics. The episode “Earth’s People Problem” is part of the Netflix series “Bill Nye Saves the World.” In the half-hour show, Nye and several panelists discuss how they think large families and population growth are affecting the world, according to the report. One of those panelists is an abortionist named Nerys Benfield who practices at the Montefiore Medical Center in New...

    In a study recently published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters, geologists at the Royal Holloway University report finding a massive lake of molten carbon the size of Mexico located some 217 miles below the earth’s surface across the western United States. The volume of the earth’s upper mantle carbon reservoir is now estimated to be 100 trillion metric tons, which will gradually make its way to the earth’s surface through volcanic eruptions and slowly contribute to global warming, we are told, unless there should be a sudden release which could have “dire consequences.”

    Former Obama Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin made news on Monday when he told the Wall Street Journal that the administration spun climate data to shape 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. What is most shocking about the mini-Koonin flap is that anyone was shocked. Scientific showmen have been manipulating climate data as a way of shaping policy for decades. In 1983, for instance, a veritable supergroup of scientific rock stars, including the self-promoting pothead Carl Sagan, published a paper in...
  • Tahoe Glacier Making a Comeback?

    Say goodbye to so-called "global warming." If the huge amounts of snowfall that buried the Sierra this past winter continue, we will soon witness the comeback of Tahoe glacier This is not as far-fetched as you may think. In fact, if history is any guide it is inevitable. Not only inevitable, the process may have already begun. California’s Squaw Valley ski resort, just west of Lake Tahoe, has been buried beneath more than 58 feet of snowfall this season. That’s enough snow to completely cover a five-story building.

    Each year, Earth Day is accompanied by predictions of doom. Let's take a look at past predictions to determine just how much confidence we can have in today's environmentalists' predictions. In 1970, when Earth Day was conceived, the late George Wald, a Nobel laureate biology professor at Harvard University, predicted, "Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind." Also in 1970, Paul Ehrlich, a Stanford University biologist and best-selling author of "The Population Bomb," declared that the world's population would soon outstrip food supplies. In an article for The Progressive, he...

    What does it say about environmentalists that a stand-up comic made famous in the 1970s by listing seven dirty words you couldn't say on TV has far more insight about the Earth than one of the green movement's most influential leaders? Is there any other conclusion to draw from a recent New York Times op-ed by Bill McKibben headlined "The Planet Can't Stand This Presidency"? In it, McKibben — who founded 350.org and teaches environmental studies at Middlebury College (where students recently physically attacked libertarian Charles Murray for trying to give a speech) — declares that President Trump poses both...

    A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. The Energy Transitions Commission’s (ETC) report claims “additional investments of around $300-$600 billion per annum do not pose a major macroeconomic challenge,” which they say will help the world meet the goals laid out in the Paris agreement. ETC is made up of energy executives, activist leaders and investment bankers, including former Vice President Al Gore, who would no doubt...

    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...

    “Useful arts in 18th Century usage would be what we call engineering or city planning or architecture,” Nye said. Nye’s 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 didn’t correct him or fact check his claim. “So if you’re a politician looking to derail the progress of science, I think you’re not doing your...

    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...

    It’s 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 Women’s 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, I’m  Dr. Science. I’m not a real doctor but I do have a Masters Degree…in Science! (The March was) organized by scientists skeptical of the agenda of...

    Bill Nye, known for his 1990’s science kid’s 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.” “There’s this myth that’s developed around carbon dioxide that it’s a pollutant, but you and I both exhale carbon dioxide with every breath. Each of...

    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...

    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 America’s friends and rivals, and plenty of skeptics. Their guide to the White House is Mr. Trump’s outspoken envoy, Nikki R. Haley. Halibut is on the menu, and a cheese soufflé, 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 president’s proposed cutbacks for the Environmental Protection Agency and the National Institutes of Health, his administration’s 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...

    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...
