    Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry gave a speech at the World Economic Forum calling for "an end to farming. Once we can inform people that agriculture contributes about 33% of all the CO2 emissions of the world we may be able to get the widespread support we need to eliminate this major source of climate change. In our modern world very few people buy their food from farmers. Most of them get their food from supermarkets. I, myself, get most of my food from restaurants and official banquets like the one we're all having here today. So, farming...
  • New Study: ‘CO2 Can Have No Measurable Effect On Ocean Temperatures’

    There can be no climate equilibrium state that can be perturbed by an increase in the atmospheric concentration of CO2…” –Clark, 2023 The anthropogenic global warming paradigm has a magnitude problem – especially when it comes to the assumption that we humans can warm the ocean with our CO2 emissions. [emphasis, links added] New research suggests that the sensitivity of the ocean latent heat flux to wind speed is about 15 W/m² per meter per second, and the solar daily flux varies from 1 to 2 megajoules per square meter per day (1-2 MJ m⁻² day−1). In contrast, the total...

    The ancient forest displayed traces of early plants, with some believed to have existed during the time of dinosaurs. The region's cartography commenced half a decade ago, dating back to 2019. Researchers have discovered the planet's most ancient forest within a deserted quarry near Cairo, New York. Embedded in rocks dating back 385 million years, these fossils preserve the petrified roots of numerous ancient trees. This discovery signifies a pivotal moment in Earth's timeline. As trees developed these roots, they played a crucial role in extracting carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, sequestering it and triggering a significant transformation in...

    While governments pour billions of dollars into lowering CO2 emissions, several climate experts say CO2 is essential and higher levels are not a problem.. The Earth has entered “uncharted territory” and life is “under siege.” The public has failed to heed this message and now “time is up,” warns a recent report from Oxford Academics’ BioScience. The authors of the report say the catalyst behind the dire warnings is escalating concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2). To salvage what remains, the authors say a much faster phase-out of oil, coal, and other fossil fuels is necessary. Failure could cause water and...

    OPINION The USA, Canada, Australia, Norway and the UK which had the moral responsibility to rapidly phase out oil and gas production are responsible for planned expansion from new oil and gas fields for next decade and half. How can these countries advise India to cut on coal consumption? Our greenhouse gas emission is nearly 3 Giga tonnes of CO2 equivalent annually. We are distant third behind the two top emitters China with 14 Giga tonnes and the US with 8 Giga tonnes Among the important outcomes, COP 28 text proposes to triple renewable energy capacity and double the global...
  • Climate Advocacy: Incompetence Or Intentional Fraud?

    Manhattan Contrarian ^ | 14 Dec, 2023 | Francis Menton
    It’s the question that must always be front and center in your mind when you read anything generated by advocates of energy transition as a supposed solution to “climate change”: Is this just rank incompetence, or is it intentional fraud? (The third possibility — reasonable, good faith advocacy — can generally be ruled out in the first few nanoseconds.). As between the options that the advocate is completely incompetent or an intentional fraudster, I suppose it would be better to be merely incompetent. However, often the misdirection is so blatant that it borders on impossible to believe that the author...

    Vivek Ramaswamy via X ^ | 11/30/23 | Vivek Ramaswamy
    The climate change agenda is a hoax & it’s hurting farmers in Iowa. Here’s how: the U.S. government enacted crony subsidies to reward those who build CO₂ pipelines across the Midwest to bury CO₂ in the ground, but most farmers don’t want the pipeline on their land because there are real hazards. But the GOP Establishment in Iowa now supports eminent domain to *seize* these farmers’ land. That’s a legal farce but also dangerous: if removing CO₂ is a justification for eminent domain, the government can use the same reasoning to seize your gas stoves & combustion engines while leaving...
  • American “Scientist” Engaged in Evil Plot to End Life on Earth

    11/28/2023 6:34:35 PM PST · by davikkm · 24 replies
    You know, if you wanted to remove CO2, you could just plant trees. All living things on earth are “carbon-based lifeforms,” and trees use the carbon in the air to grow. That has never been suggested. There has never been any attempt to prove that CO2 causes warming. There is no evidence for the theory. What they have is a bunch of fake graphs, and a “scientific consensus” from “climatologists.”

    researchers at MIT and Harvard University have developed an efficient process that can convert carbon dioxide into formate, a liquid or solid material that can be used like hydrogen or methanol to power a fuel cell and generate electricity. ...However, the researchers expect it to be scalable so that it could provide emissions-free heat and power to individual homes and even be used in industrial or grid-scale applications. These crystals have an indefinite shelf life, remaining so stable that they could be stored for years, or even decades, with little or no loss. By comparison, even the best available practical...
  • The fables about greenhouse gases, especially about methane

    American Thinker ^ | 10/18/2023 | Mark Adams
    “Climate change” is in the news daily, with each featured story getting an attention-grabbing sensationalist headline. The frenzy is at its peak now because it’s the time of year for tropical storms and wildfires. However, to appreciate that these stories are pure narratives, it’s a good time to consider the facts behind the so-called “greenhouse gases.” Several atmospheric gases, including carbon dioxide, methane, and water vapor, absorb light in the infrared region. These are collectively known as the “greenhouse gases” because absorbing infrared energy warms up the air—hence the name greenhouse effect. Carbon dioxide, on a per-molecule basis, is six...

    Grab your popcorn, because there’s a full-speed, head-on collision between the left’s competing interests coming, and it’s fixing to be gory. From an item that appeared in The Wall Street Journal at the end of September:Located underneath a distant, swampy expanse of spruce forests and meandering rivers in Northern Ontario that is cut off from major roads, the Ring of Fire is seen by industry and government officials as one of the world’s most important untapped sources of nickel, copper and cobalt—metals essential for making the batteries that power electric vehicles.But the precious commodities are buried under a vast ecosystem...

    Republicans and their cable news allies are still hot and bothered about climate change. A few examples: Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) accused Climate Envoy John Kerry of being a “grifter,” trying to charge taxpayers “a quadrillion dollars to fix a problem that doesn’t exist.” Liberals don’t “really believe in global warming,” Tucker Carlson asserted, because “the entire theory is absurd and they know it.” “It’s, hot, hot, hot, all right,” Laura Ingraham told Fox News viewers. “After all, we’re in the middle of a season called ‘summer.’” Stronger hurricanes are “a fact of life in the Sunshine State,” declared Florida...

    In the summer of 2022, a group of scientists and professionals connected to the study of the climate started seeking signatures on a document that states that there is no climate emergency. Climate change supporters quickly started saying the document is “anti-science,” “the work of uninformed people,” “untruthful,” and things like that. On Aug. 16, 2023, The New American reported that now more than 1,600 scientists and professionals, including two Nobel Prize winners and experts from MIT, Princeton, and other notable institutions around the world, have signed the document. Some of the things in the document these universally recognized men...

    On May 23, EPA put out its long-expected proposed Rule designed to eliminate, or nearly so, all so-called “greenhouse gas” emissions from the electricity-generation sector of the economy. The proposal came with the very long title: “New Source Performance Standards for GHG Emissions from New and Reconstructed EGUs; Emission Guidelines for GHG Emissions from Existing EGUs; and Repeal of the Affordable Clean Energy Rule.” The full document is 672 pages long. Various not-very-far-off deadlines are set, ranging from as early as 2030 for some changes to coal plants, to at the latest 2038 for the last changes to natural gas...
