Many of the newly converted transitioned from extreme climate skepticism to radical proponents of the belief that global warming must be tackled before it’s too late. The retired coal miner, evangelical minster, and Miami mayor reporters talked to wrap their new-found position in religious overtones.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has yet again been caught exaggerating ‘global warming’ by fiddling with the raw temperature data.

If you need another example of scientific establishment’s deteriorating credibility since the election of Donald Trump, here it is: The world’s largest science organization is bestowing a top honor on a climate propagandist who spends lots of his time making hateful, inflammatory comments about the president, his family, his administration and GOP lawmakers on social media.
Trudeau ignores the fact that carbon taxes damage the economy, while pipelines help create prosperity.
NPR is reviving a month-old study warming could lead to the “demise” of sugar maple trees, and thus maple syrup, if nothing is done to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
Maple Syrup: Nectar of the Gods. Not to be confused with single malt Scotch, which goes by the same nickname.
A new study produced by researchers at the University of Auckland concludes that forecasts about the impact of climate change on some low-lying islands have failed to take into account key factors and thus have overstated the danger posed to inhabitants. The most “counterintuitive” finding in the study: the Pacific island nation of Tuvalu — the poster child of “sinking” island fears — is not only not shrinking, it’s actually growing in size.
In these increasingly tempestuous political times, it seems that each news cycle is trying to win an award for being the most ridiculous to date. Hysteria may be a rather bipartisan commodity now, but craziest of the crazies still hang out with the progressives.
Among that group, the climate change activists may be the most unbalanced. These are, after all, the people who are now using junk science to inform their family planning decisions.
That’s commitment to the cause.
Plan B is coming out of the shadows in the global-warming debate. The question on the table: With hope dimming that humankind can effectively curb carbon emissions, is it time to strong-arm nature to turn the thermostat down?
Since he became famous hosting his children’s TV show, Bill Nye, aka “the Science Guy,” has spent the last couple of decades being an insufferable scold on climate change and other charged political topics. Aside from appearing on TV, Nye often has no particular expertise on the topics he’s weighing in on. He does have an undergraduate degree, but “the Mechanical Engineer Guy” just doesn’t have the same ring to it.
The report by Ontario’s environmental commissioner says the government needs a better plan for spending the funds brought in by the cap-and-trade system, which amounted to close to $2 billion last year.
Just one private jet flight from New York to Paris produces more CO2 than the typical American produces in an entire year.
Those hit hardest are women and people with low incomes who worry about the planet’s long-term health, said the study published this week in the journal Global Environmental Change.
“We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection.
Every now and again you come across something so stupid that you have trouble gathering your thoughts about it.
