Scientists accused of scaremongering, ‘overheated claims’ with warning to humanity

“It concerns me that the message from science is this doom-and-gloom scenario that just turns off about 75 per cent of people,” said Erle Ellis, an associate professor of geography and environmental systems at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

“There’s a small percentage that loves the crisis narrative, and they just repeat it over and over to each other.”​

As Trump tries to revive coal industry, Canada pushes for a phase-out while at UN climate meeting

The fissures in the oft-touted Canada-U.S. relationship will be more apparent than ever this week during the United Nations climate change talks in Germany as Canada pushes to phase out coal as a power source.

Canada’s position runs counter to the Trump administration, which has declared the “war on coal is over” and promised to breath life into the industry.

GOLDSTEIN: What’s really dumb? Trudeau’s carbon pricing plan

A trick politicians use to intimidate us on the subject of human-influenced climate change is to leap from the fact that because scientists say it is real, we must support whatever they propose to address it.

This is absurd. How to address human-influenced climate change involves economic policies that are political decisions, not scientific ones.

Consider livestock emissions at climate change talks, say activists

Delegates attending the World Climate Change Conference in Bonn this month are being asked to consider the contribution that livestock make to greenhouse gas emissions (GHG). As they digest food, livestock emit methane gases contribute an estimated 15 per cent of GHG into the atmosphere. This does not include emissions caused by their manure or production of their feed.

Pigs are next and you know why.

Rex Murphy: There is no company Liberals will not keep in pursuit of climate action

“I wouldn’t join any club that would have me as a member,” ace wisecracker Groucho Marx famously said. As with any durable putdown, contained within its smart-ass punch is a worthy insight, the wisdom of the tamer proverb: “You can tell a person’s character by the company he keeps.”

Syria’s Entry Into The Paris Agreement Shows The U.S. Rightly Stayed Out

The questions people should really be asking are why Syria joined the Paris agreement and why it chose to do so now, two years after the agreement was first adopted.

It’s all over the news: Syria has joined the Paris climate agreement, leaving the United States as the only country in the world that is not a signatory. Many observers and commentators are using this as an opportunity to chastise America for holding out where a roundly abhorred government has given in. But the questions people should really be asking are why Syria joined the Paris agreement and why it chose to do so now, two years after the agreement was first adopted. The answer is simple. Syria is seeking international legitimacy.


She thought it was a swell idea!

GOLDSTEIN: Catherine McKenna, #ClimateCrusader!

It was, declared Environment and Climate Change Minister Catherine McKenna with the equivalent of a Twitter shrug, “a mistake.”

The mistake being that Canada, through her ministry, had just tweeted its congratulations to Syria for signing the Paris climate accord in a Twitter account that features a smiling McKenna as its avatar.
