Another Example of Eco-Duplicity

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Ahh – liberal hypocrisy.

We want green energy. We want to end the scourge of carbon pollution. We want it so bad that we’ll fly all over the world in our pollution-spewing private jets to advocate and raise awareness for solar and wind.

However, when you erect those enormous wind mills, just don’t install them in our back yards. Thus is the phony environmentalist refrain. Only this time a green-weenie, eco-celebrity (by marriage) isn’t necessarily complaining of the off-shore wind farm itself. He’s whining about how unsightly the underground cables carrying the much heralded eco-electricity are.

Singer Adele’s husband, Simon Konecki, multimillionaire founder of bottled water company Life Water, has hit out, as the Brits say, against German energy company E.ON corporation for their handling of the latest British off-shore £2 billion [$2.7 billion] wind farm installation.

Konecki, who claims to stand for everything green, is not against the Rampion offshore wind farm, but rather the cables that transfer power from the farm to land. read more

No City Uses 100 Percent Renewable Energy – Not Even Close

from Climate Depot:

Alex Epstein: Gore’s sequel ‘lies’ about alleged ‘100% renewable energy’ city of Georgetown TX

Epstein: “Gore shows us the town of Georgetown, Tex. and its use of 100-per-cent renewable energy. Stories about “100-per-cent renewable” locations like Georgetown, Tex. are not just anecdotal evidence, they are lies. The Texas grid from which Georgetown draws its electricity is comprised of 43.7 per cent natural gas, 28.8 per cent coal, 12 per cent nuclear, and only 15.6 per cent renewable. Using a virtue-signalling gimmick pioneered by Apple, Facebook, and Google, Georgetown pays its state utility to label its grid electricity “renewable” —  even though it draws its power from that fossil-fuel heavy Texas grid — while tarring others on the grid as ‘non-renewable.’” read more

Warmists Lie about the Paris Climate Agreement

from IBD:

For Climate-Change Hypocrites, U.S. Is Too Frackin’ Much

The tut-tutting and tsk-tsking about the U.S. withdrawing from the Paris Climate Agreement knows no end. But as yet another news story shows, the Paris deal is an utter fraud and should be considered as such.

As Francis Menton of the Manhattan Contrarian blog recently pointed out, a July 9 New York Times headline couldn’t hide the paper’s disgust and contempt for President Trump for once again telling the G20 group of nations that the U.S. would not fulfill President Obama’s unkeepable climate promises under the Paris accords.

“World Leaders Move Forward On Climate Change, Without U.S.,” the Times headline sneered. read more

Global Warming Science – It’s Settled – They Lied Again

How many times would you put up with being cheated on in a relationship? How many times would you tolerate being lied to? Is it one and done? Or maybe 2 – 3 – a half a dozen?

Obviously, this is a loaded question. It would depend on a number of factors. Independence vs. interdependence – or maybe just how forgiving a person is. Maybe it’s a relationship of convenience – like the Clintons – more a business partnership than a personal, loving relationship.

But what if the relationship were between you and cause? A cause you felt so strongly for, people considered you “wedded” to it. A cause like…oh…I don’t know…Global Warming.

What if you were all-in on man caused global warming because, as experts have oft-repeated, the science of global warming is settled? But then you found out that the cause you’ve been wedded to is almost entirely a lie? What would you do? You just may have to reevaluate your loyalty. read more

No – Pacific Islands are not Disappearing Due to Global Warming

by: the Common Constitutionalist

“Rising sea levels are eating away at small Pacific Islands and will eventually turn their inhabitants into climate refugees.” So say the climate “experts.”

Allow me to channel my inner Andy Rooney. Did you ever notice that in order to be a “climate expert,” one must first believe in man-caused global warming. Just an observation.

New Scientist reports  that “Over the past 60 years the sea has risen by around 30 centimeters locally, sparking warnings that the [Funafuti] atoll is set to disappear.

Now may I ask a question? How do sea levels rise “locally?” The experts claim that the ocean rose “locally” by 30 centimeters. These islands, or atolls, sit in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Picture the Pacific as a giant bathtub. There are no walls or barriers in the tub segregating the water. After you finish filling the tub to a certain level, someone asks if you can just raise the level of water by 30 centimeters (about 12 inches) “locally,” at one end and not the other. Please tell me how this is done, save for a local storm or swell, which would of course subside. It defies the laws of fluid dynamics.

But as has been occurring more often of late – actual data doesn’t support the claims that these islands will disappear. Quite the opposite. read more

Podcast – The Scam of Rising Sea Levels

The Paris Climate hoax has been front page news for days. The left has predictably gone bat-crap crazy over Trump’s decision to pull out.

So the hysterical warmists have taken to airwaves to promote their latest apocalyptic warning, that unless we sign on to the Paris Wealth-Distribution Treaty (and that’s what it really is), the sea levels will rise and we will all be swept away.

This dire warning is of course yet another lie concocted by alarmists posing as climate scientists – a lie which the eminent sea level scientist, Dr. Nils-Axel Mörner, has proven.

The Business of Climate Change and the Rise of the Oceans

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In 2015, Takepart.com posted an article  citing what coastal cities will look like after the sea levels rise.

They write that, “Sea-level rise is coming. Even if we keep global temperatures from rising more than 2 degrees Celsius above historic norms—the benchmark for avoiding catastrophic climate warming—we may still see oceans creep four feet farther inland by 2100 and rise 20 feet by as soon as 2200.”

I like the hysteric hyperbole – “catastrophic climate warming” and the fact (or non-fact) that we “may” still see oceans rising – which can equally mean that we may not. It’s a trick the warming alarmists always use figuring most will not pick up the “may” and instead hear “will.” And if you buy into this nonsense, this is what you hear.

The article cites a study published in the journal Science, where researchers compared CO2 levels of today with the last time they claim the levels were similar. It was apparently 120,000 years ago when the level was roughly the same as today, at approximately 400ppm.

They claim that, “Back then, the average global temperature was around 1 to 2 degrees higher than it is now, and the sea level was about 20 feet higher.” read more

There Can be NO Renegotiation of the Paris Wealth-Distribution Treaty

President Trump has officially pulled us out of the Paris Wealth-Distribution Treaty. Hooray for the President!

Yesterday, as many have heard, Trump said: “In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord…”

Well that’s terrific, or at least it would have been if he had ended there and simply said “thank you and have a nice day.” But he didn’t. His campaign promise was to pull out completely and leave it at that.

Yet he kind of left the door open by next saying: “…but begin negotiations to reenter either the Paris Accord or really an entirely new transaction, on terms that are fair to the United States, its businesses, its workers, its people, its taxpayers…”

Well, kudos to the President for mentioning “its taxpayers.” When have we heard a President mention the people who fit the bill when discussing international affairs? I certainly don’t recall a time. read more

Limbaugh Gets It – Is it Global Warming, or is it Cooling?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh went off again over the myth of man caused global warming and this bogus Paris Climate Accord. So serious is this, that Rush, a hardcore Trump supporter, said that if Trump signs onto the Paris Climate Agreement, he may dump-Trump.

“It is crucial that the president not only not participate in this, he must actively withdraw from it … this is why the president — if he signs on to this, folks, I don’t know how I can continue to support him in other things.” Ditto for me.

He mentioned as proof that global warming is a hoax, the fact that the leftist media switches every several years between catastrophic warming and cooling. He’s right, although the cycle is actually between 30 and 40 years. And there is a cycle.

In fact, we have been warned of differing catastrophic climate change four times in just the past 120 or so years.

So let’s hop into the way-back machine or maybe Doc’s DeLorean. Let us take a journey in time via the irrefutable written record. Remember, if it’s in print it must be true. I’ll punch in the turn of the century, last century.

From the late 1800’s through the 1920’s Americans were convinced, via the print media, that we were heading for the next ICE AGE. Yes, Global Cooling! In 1895 the New York Times (the paper of record) wrote, “Geologists think the world may be frozen up again”. In 1912 the L.A. Times reported, “The fifth Ice Age is on the way”. Chicago Tribune, 1923: “Scientists say Arctic Ice will wipe out Canada all the way down to the Great Lakes”. 1924, New York Times: “Signs of a new Ice Age”. This reporting continued through the balance of the ’20’s. read more

Cruz Want’s Trump to Shread the Paris Climate Agreement

from CNN: (Yep – CNN – Go Figure)

OP-Ed from Ted Cruz:

Trump should withdraw from Paris climate pact

Following a successful international tour and the G-7 Summit in Italy, President Trump has an opportunity to relieve our nation of the unfair and economically devastating requirements of the Paris Agreement, the United Nations climate treaty he pledged to rip up during the campaign.

And as soon as possible, President Trump should act on — and keep — his campaign promise.

The agreement, signed by the Obama administration last year, would commit the United States to drastically reducing its carbon emissions while allowing some countries to increase theirs. This, all while doing nothing to meaningfully decrease global temperatures. read more
