    Liberals love to tout how great alternative energy is compared to fossil fuels. What the same environmentalists refuse to acknowledge is the costs that will be paid by the energy companies customers. While people such as Obama and Clinton continue to push for alternative energy by acting as if it’s a surefire way to lower energy costs, Germany has proven that a lie. The German government has officially declared it will cease building any new offshore wind turbines in an effort to lower energy costs for the European Union’s richest nation.

    Dr. Patrick Moore sent me this last week, and after reading it, I agree with him in his initial note to me that This is probably the most important paper I will ever write. Moore looks at the historical record of CO2 in our atmosphere and concludes that we came dangerously close to losing plant life on Earth about 18,000 years ago, when CO2 levels approached 150 ppm, below which plant life can’t sustain photosynthesis. He notes: A 140 million year decline in CO2 to levels that came close to threatening the survival of life on Earth can hardly be...

Then you get subpoenaed by the Massachusetts attorney general over your think-tank’s supposed ties to ExxonMobil — the claim being that the oil giant allegedly attempted to cover up global warming science. And how did Alex Epstein, author of “The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels,” respond to Maura Healey’s subpoena on Wednesday? " F---- Off, Fascist"

    On the Portland School Board's decision to ax certain textbooks for their position on climate change, The Oregonian/OregonLive editorial board recently wrote, "The board's climate-change resolution is not intended to teach students to think critically, which is what schools should do. It's designed, instead, to produce acolytes." The first responsibility of any school is to teach what is known. Man's influence on climate is by now well-established, as the board notes. Climate contrarians, despite all their bluster, have never put forth an alternate scientific explanation for modern warming that explains what we see. If I were a Portland public school...

They want to get married, and they want their wedding night to burst with all the raw power and eroticism of a Gustav Klimt drawing. Yes, you read that right. These students married the Earth ...and then had their way with it.

Their crime? Rejection or denial of climate change and therefore being opposed to President Obama's agenda on the issue. Today, five Republican Senators have sent a letter to Lynch reminding her that in America, we don't have thought police and the Justice Department doesn't have the power or authority to punish an entire industry because the people in it they think differently than the progressives in charge of the...

In a subpoena issued in March, the office of USVI attorney general Claude Walker demanded from Exxon Mobil copies of communications between the oil company and 90 different political and policy organizations “and any other organizations engaged in research or advocacy concerning Climate Change or policies.” The subpoena was part of a national, coordinated legal campaign by state attorneys general and left-wing advocacy groups...

It's just meteorology. The dual glass spheres at the South Pole are Campbell-Stokes sunshine recorders, orbs that capture the number of hours of direct sunlight each day, as well as its intensity.Sunshine recorders first came about in the 1850s, thanks to John Francis Campbell—the Campbell in Campbell-Stokes. Around 1853, Campbell, a Scottish author who focused on Celtic folklore, developed a desire to quantify...

    If those who claim that carbon dioxide has some special insulating properties really believe their claims, why aren’t they encouraging the use of carbon dioxide to insulate buildings in winter. If concentrations of CO2 of only a few hundred parts per million can cause earth to become warmer then pure carbon dioxide used as an insulation for buildings should be even more effective at holding in heat. If CO2 could be used as insulation, CO2 emissions would be collected so the gas could be used to insulate buildings

The Dust Bowl years of the 1930's were very warm, but from 1940-75, the temperatures plummeted, but then rebounded between 1976-1997, but have since leveled off, with perhaps a slight warming thanks to El Nino the last few years.

Mars is blanketed by a thin, mostly carbon dioxide atmosphere—one that is far too thin to prevent large amounts of water on the surface of the planet from subliming or evaporating. But many researchers have suggested that the planet was once shrouded in an atmosphere many times thicker than Earth's. For decades that left the question, "Where did all the carbon go?" Now a team of scientists from Caltech and JPL thinks they have a possible answer. The researchers suggest that 3.8 billion...

    Yes of course we know the media is an enemy of freedom. Their lies prove that every day; but sometimes it gets a little too old and tired to sit by and make believe we don’t know they are liars. A recent insane lie from the New York Times (naturally) breathlessly announced not only is Greenland melting but when it does fade away, the worldwide sea level will increase by 20 feet! This would, of course, effectively bring about the end of the world for all but a few backward tribes living in mountains somewhere. This claim doesn’t come from...

    This tripe today: ANALYSIS: POLARIZED POLITICS DICTATED OBAMA KEYSTONE CALL WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama's decision to block the Keystone XL oil pipeline has exposed an endlessly polarized Washington, and likely hardened its divides. Obama is now being praised to the skies by environmentalists and most Democrats, and denounced in apocalyptic terms by Republicans and the business community. And although environmental issues once produced bipartisan agreement in Congress, consensus on action to increase energy production or deal with climate change looks farther away than ever. "This became a tribal issue of bizarre proportion," said Jason Grumet, president of the...

    Today, three Iowa politicians signed a pledge calling for “a World War II-scale mobilization” to fight climate change. Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie, State Rep. Dan Kelley, and State Senator Rob Hogg, a leading candidate for US Senate, all Democrats, signed a document calling on the US government to reduce emissions 100 percent by 2025 by “enlisting” tens of millions of Americans to work on clean energy projects—creating full employment in the process. It’s likely the most ambitious pledge to fight climate change put forward this election cycle, even if right now, it's a symbolic gesture aimed at drawing attention...

    Meanwhile, Americans and Canadians are heading for Niagara Falls and it doesn’t help any that we’re both in the same boat now. Nothing but the sound of crickets since this country became what talented writer David Solway calls ‘The Socialist Republic of Canada’. Solway nailed how Canada was officially ‘fundamentally transformed’ into a socialist state, courtesy of the October 19 election, in a compelling piece published in PJ Media on Thursday. Solway laid bare Designate Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s lightweight curricula vitae, and threw the public spotlight on how al Jazeera sees him: as “Canada’s agent for change”. America’s “agent...

    While Clinton who outright lied to save Obama’s campaign for reelection in 2012 by attributing the death of four Americans in Benghazi to an obscure video, will never face a jail term, but one day global warming deniers will In an upside-down world where the ‘progressives’ having gained control sent truth telling on permanent vacation, President Barack Obama compares Republicans to “Grumpy Cat”. To millions languishing in wait out there in the Peanut Gallery, it’s more like “Grumpy Cat versus Obama Rat”. It gets crazier by day with lots of down-the-rabbit-hole material on the Net for anyone with the time...

    And one of those making the demand is a U.S. senator. Before you say this could never happen, let me ask you: Did you ever think people would be given six-figure fines for declining to bake a cake? And not only that, but see significant numbers of Americans agree with it happening? Orthodoxies are powerful things, and just as the left is riding one that defines non-participation in gay weddings as “discrimination,” it also thinks it can gain mainstream support for the idea that dissent on the global warming orthodoxy is some sort of crime. Actually, if Democrat U.S. Senator...

    Delusional in Chief. Remember: War is peace, Ignorance is strength, Freedom is slavery, and Putin isn't "challenging" anything If you were worried that your President was a feckless foreign policy failure who was being outplayed by an old Soviet hardliner, think again. Obama’s international “leadership” remains unchallenged - at least in Obama’s own mind - and he’s actually at the vanguard of the only foreign policy issue that really matters. It’s not ISIS, it’s not trade, and it’s not the Iran nuke deal. If Obama is to be believed, Putin is acting out of weakness, and his “definition of leadership”...

    Newest menace to the globe: Laughing Gas Some dentists use Laughing Gas for its analgesic effects instead of local anaesthetics. It’s supposed to prevent pain when they get close to your nerves. I’ve never had the pleasure of such a treatment and my dentist prefers the modern “slight discomfort” version of the poke and needle variety. Of course, that’s miles ahead of the procedure I experienced in my early years when the dentist appeared to use a hammer drill to lay bare the live nerves of my teeth—without any analgesic at all. But I’m getting sidetracked. This post is about...

    This happened Tuesday at a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing, during which Sierra Club president Aaron Mair, who holds bachelor’s degrees in History and Sociology and is most certainly no scientist, has testified about the necessity of the EPA and its push for climate change regulations no matter who – including racial minorities and especially people who look a lot like Mair – is harmed by the economic cost of those regulations. Cruz, having endured this pontificating by the Sierra Club president, commences to ask some very basic questions of Mair – specifically surrounding the query that if global warming is...

    Tesla's CEO says the Volkswagen scandal is minor compared with carbon dioxide emissions.Elon Musk, co-founder of electric carmaker Tesla Motors, warned on Thursday that climate change will spark a refugee crisis of catastrophic proportions if no action is taken. In a speech in Berlin, the Tesla chief executive said Europe's current wave of people seeking asylum, prompted mostly by political violence, will be dwarfed as fresh water becomes scarce, food supplies become insecure and weather changes in the coming decades. "Today's refugee problem is perhaps a small indication of what the future will be like if we do not take...
