    President Trump is taking “woke” head on.And peak woke is the climate hoax, which is really just another way to extort money from the American people.This is one of his best clips, watch here:President Trump: "we have to defeat the climate hoaxsters!"— (@DailyNoahNews) November 23, 2022He’s 100% right!Always fighting for America.The scam has been exposed:No human experiences 'climate change' in a lifetime, only seeing 'seasonal' weather. Climate change takes hundreds, thousands or tens of thousands of years. These forces are not short-term – for example, it takes a thousand years to lay down 1cm of sedimentary rock. It's...

    Op-Ed by Dan FournierKey Takeaways:The Climate Change narrative is, for the most part, an exaggerated fabrication concocted by powerful interests with dubious agendas that doesn’t hold up to scientific scrutiny.Starting in 2035 no new gas or diesel cars & trucks will be allowed.The Canadian Oil & Gas sector will be put extinct by the year 2050.Small- & medium-sized businesses will find it increasingly difficult to get loans due to net-zero policies.Canadian consumers will be greatly taxed to support all the climate-related policies and measures that are currently being implemented in Canada and elsewhere.As this exposé will be somewhat comprehensive, it...
  • How U.S. regulators allow ethanol plants to pollute more than oil refineries

    In 2007, the U.S. Congress mandated the blending of biofuels such as corn-based ethanol into gasoline. One of the top goals: reducing greenhouse gas emissions. But today, the nation´s ethanol plants produce more than double the climate-damaging pollution, per gallon of fuel production capacity, than the nation´s oil refineries, according to a Reuters analysis of federal data. The average ethanol plant chuffed out 1,187 metric tons of carbon emissions per million gallons of fuel capacity in 2020, the latest year data is available. The average oil refinery, by contrast, produced 533 metric tons of carbon. The ethanol plants´ high emissions...
  • Carbon should cost 3.6 times more than US price, study says

    Each ton of carbon dioxide that exits a smokestack or tailpipe is doing far more damage than what governments take into account, researchers conclude in a scientific paper published Thursday. Currently, the United States government uses a price of $51 per ton of carbon dioxide emitted, but the researchers wrote in the journal Nature that the price should be $185 per ton — 3.6 times higher than the current U.S. standard. “Our results suggest that we are vastly underestimating the harm from each additional ton of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere,” said Kevin Rennert, a study author. Rennert and colleagues...
  • Most Ontarians to receive climate payment from federal government today

    Millions of Ontarians can expect to get some extra cash from the federal government on Friday. The first round of the Climate Action Incentive Payment, a tax-free rebate to offset the cost of the federal carbon price initiative, will be automatically deposited for eligible residents. The payments issued on July 15 will go to individuals in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, who are at least 19 years of age. Other provinces have the funds directed back to the provincial government. The climate action incentive was previously a refundable tax credit claimed annually on income tax returns, but the payment will...
  • Carbon Tax Sidelined in Biden’s Push on Climate, Taxes

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | March 24, 2021 | Greg Ip
    There is no more effective way for President Biden to meet his aggressive climate goals than a carbon tax. The timing seems ripe: his Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, has been a prominent advocate. Big business has flipped from opponent to proponent. Republican opposition is no longer monolithic. But a carbon tax lacks support where it matters most: with Mr. Biden and the Democratic base. Progressive Democrats claim a carbon tax and its close cousin, cap-and-trade, are unfair to the poor and racial minorities. And a carbon tax appears to conflict with Mr. Biden’s promise not to raise taxes on any...
  • Satellites detect California cow burps, a major methane source, from space

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Satellites have detected methane emissions from belching cows at a California feedlot, marking the first time emissions from livestock - a major component of agricultural methane - could be measured from space. Environmental data firm GHGSat this month analyzed data from its satellites and pinpointed the methane source from a feedlot in the agricultural Joaquin Valley near Bakersfield, California in February. This is significant, according to GHGSat, because agricultural methane emissions are hard to measure and accurate measurement is needed to set enforceable reduction targets for the beef-production industry. GHGSat said the amount of methane it detected...

    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...
  • Where Have All the Economists Gone? (Environment)

    This is my fourth in a series on why we need to hear more from economists and less from non-economists – especially on economic topics. What does the average economist know about environmental science? Probably no more than any other reasonably educated person. Yet economists have three talents that are sorely missing from most discussions of environmental policy – particularly policies related to climate change. They understand (1) the scientific method, (2) cost-benefit analysis and (3) how costs and benefits affecting different generations can be evaluated over time. Here is how these skills matter. The Scientific Method. During the Trump...

    Aug 6 (Reuters) - Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N) was suspended from advocacy group Climate Leadership Council (CLC) that looks to make policies to address climate change, the CLC said on Friday. Exxon was a founding member of the group .... The non-profit organization World Resources Institute (WRI), a CLC member, said Exxon was not aligned with the council's push to put a price on carbon as a key response to the climate crisis. "We welcome CLC's separation from Exxon," the institute's CEO, Ani Dasgupta, said in a note, while calling on companies to support a price on carbon in any...

  • Democrats Call for a Tax on Imports From Polluting Countries. The party’s $3.5 trillion budget plan would include a carbon tariff, as well as a host of other climate actions.

    WASHINGTON — Democrats have agreed to include a tax on imports from nations that lack aggressive climate change policies as part of a sweeping $3.5 trillion budget plan stocked with other provisions aimed at ratcheting down fossil fuel pollution in the United States. The move to tax imports was made public Wednesday, the same day that the European Union outlined its own proposal for a similar carbon border tax, a novel tool that is designed to protect domestic manufacturing while simultaneously pressuring other countries to reduce the emissions that are warming the planet. The two actions in concert suggest that...
  • The U.S. Should Not Count on China’s Climate Goals

    A new report this month from Rhodium Group explains that China’s 2019 greenhouse gas emissions eclipsed emissions from every single developed country in the world — combined. This is the first time China, the world’s worst polluter since emissions began to skyrocket in the ‘90s, has been able to claim this dubious distinction. The U.S. peaked emissions in 2007 and, according to the IEA, has reduced more emissions than anyone else in the history of energy. We’ve been making historic reductions mainly because of two things considered off-limits by the progressive left: innovative fracking and carbon-free nuclear energy. While our...

    Implementing a border levy to price carbon-intensive imports and protect European industries will be “extremely complicated,” warned Jonathan Pershing, a member of the US climate envoy’s team. “I do note that it’s extremely complicated to think about the structure of a border tax,” Pershing told participants at a EURACTIV debate last Friday (7 May). “I don’t disagree in principle that it has value, but I think that it’s got enormous complexity,” he warned. The carbon border adjustment mechanism, due to be revealed in July, aims to put a price on imports from countries where it is cheaper to pollute, as...

    I will attempt to answer the very detailed and frightening April 12 Correspondent of the Day letter from Dr. L. Fred Roensch. Perhaps a better title would have been "Despondent of the Day." He cites Bill Gates and the American Petroleum Institute as well-meaning caretakers of our planet by reciting a litany of creative means to save our children and grandchildren from his imagined horrors. My reply will begin with the failed but popular premise that we have gone from global warming to climate change. Why the change? I'll tell you why by citing Ian Rutherford Plimer, Australian geologist and...
  • Pennsylvania holds off on joining regional program to cap emissions from cars, trucks by raising fuel costs

    Gov. Tom Wolf declined Monday to sign on to a multi-state program designed to impose a cap on greenhouse gas emissions from cars and trucks. The Transportation & Climate Initiative aims to reduce emissions but also carried the likelihood of higher gas prices at the pump in participating states. Other governors also opted against signing onto the initiative. But Wolf’s move isn’t necessarily a permanent rejection of the concept. “Governor Wolf is supportive of cap and invest programs as a cost-effective means to reduce pollution and recognizes transportation as the third highest category of CO2 emissions in Pennsylvania,” his office...

    A seat on the U.S Federal Reserve Board, carries tremendous power. The seven members of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. A full term is fourteen years. During that time, a board member can influence the financial policies of the world's most powerful economy. In some ways the seven men and women, have more power than Congress or even the President himself. That's why appointments to the Federal Reserve Board deserve as much scrutiny as those to the Supreme Court. President Barack Obama recently made three nominations...

    President-elect Joe Biden is planning to quickly sign a series of executive orders after being sworn into office on Jan. 20, immediately forecasting that the country's politics have shifted and that his presidency will be guided by radically different priorities. He will rejoin the Paris climate accords, according to those close to his campaign and commitments he has made in recent months, and he will reverse President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the World Health Organization. He will repeal the ban on immigration from many Muslim-majority countries, and he will reinstate the program allowing "dreamers," who were brought to the United...
