Climate Fraudsters Demand More Cash

from IBD:

Just when you think the climate change lunacy couldn’t get any worse, the U.N.’s climate-crats up the ante. Meeting in Bonn, Germany, for yet another unneeded climate conference, attendees are now demanding $300 billion a year more to help less-developed nations cope with anticipated climatic warming. Are they kidding?

By the way, that $300 billion is in addition to the $100 billion that the world’s governments have already promised to deliver under the Paris Climate Agreement. So now they’re asking for a total of $400 billion a year in climate welfare for the developing world. No sane government would sign on to such a scam. Which of course means that most of them probably will.

There’s really no end to this insanity. To make it worse, the proposal before the Bonn climate talks calls for the added taxpayer-funded cash to be doled out not by the governments themselves, or even the U.N. No, the money will be channeled through existing nongovernmental organizations, or NGOs.

In other words, left-wing green groups around the world will become the conduits for billions of dollars in money handed out to ethically challenged, nondemocratic governments. Think there might be a tiny temptation for corruption there? read more

WND Exclusive – Leftist Cannibals Eat Their Own Over Warming

Note: On its 20th anniversary this week, I’d like to thank WND for being a platform for the reasonable in a sea of the irrational and to thank its editors for allowing me a voice.

I grew up being taught, and have subsequently tried to instill in my kids, that you don’t take pleasure in the misery of others – that it is just not charitable.

While this is a great sentiment, and I think we all (well, most all) try to live by this basic rule, occasionally it belies our baser human instincts. Sometimes you just can’t help but crack a smile or feel a warped sense of satisfaction when someone “gets their comeuppance,” as it were.

Regardless of your feelings regarding President Trump, if you are conservative, you, like me, felt elated that Hillary Clinton not only lost, but did so in humiliating fashion. We should merely be satisfied that she lost and not revel in her anguish. But I did, and admit it – you did also.

I know it’s wrong, but there is little we conservatives enjoy more than witnessing the crack-up of leftists. And even more satisfying is when they turn on there own, which seems to be happening more and more. read more

No Planning for the Future – We Only Have 10 Years Left

In the latest in radical climate doomsaying, a new report warns that fossil fuel consumption will need to be reduced “below a quarter of primary energy supply by 2100” to avoid possibly disastrous effects on global temperatures.

In their report, titled “Pathways for balancing CO2 emissions and sinks,” a team of eight scientists warns that “anthropogenic emissions need to peak within the next 10 years, to maintain realistic pathways to meeting the COP21 emissions and warming targets.”

 The statement was immediately repackaged by environmentalists to read: “Scientists say we have ten years to save the earth.”

As is always the case in studies of this sort, the scientists juggle dozens of variables, none of which is entirely predictable and which taken together tell us virtually nothing about the future of the environment. read more

Van Jones Claims Trump Signed Earth’s Death Warrant

Now that the ObamaCare repeal is off the table, at least in the near future, the left has to find other things to whine about.

Politicians have set their sights, near term, on the upcoming supreme Court vote. The Senate leadership wants Judge Neil Gorsuch, Trump’s pick for the high court, to be confirmed prior to Easter recess.

Oops. Was I allowed to say “Easter?” It is probably a trigger word.

While Democrat politicians are wrapped up in trying to derail the Gorsuch confirmation, other leftists (and there are plenty to go around) are focused on Trump’s recent Executive Order (EO) to put an end to Obama’s worthless “Clean Power Plan.”

Late last week, our old buddy, the self-avowed communist, Van Jones, wrote a piece for CNN entitled, “Trump may have signed Earth’s death warrant.”

Yes – with the stroke of his presidential pen, Donald Trump signed Earth’s death warrant. That sounds reasonable. Nothing hyperbolic about that declaration. read more

I Never Thought I Would Say This, but I Love the EPA

Needless to say I was really disappointed at the roll out and outcome of the Republican ObamaCare “fix.” And I’m sure I’m not the only one. So much so, that I went in search of some good news.

Son of a gun if I didn’t find some. It’s doubly good because it not only benefits us and America, but is driving the left batty. And it’s one of my hot button issues. Wins all around!

The Huffington Post somberly posted an article yesterday entitled, “Donald Trump Is About To Undo Obama’s Legacy On Climate Change.” From the left’s point of view, the subtitle, “The White House plans to scrap a rule on power plant emissions, kneecapping U.S. participation in the Paris climate accord,” is equally sobering. Ain’t it grand!

It’s funny, but it seems that left to do the things he is able to on his own, President Trump already has a good track record. Things go off the rails when the establishment wing of Congress gets involved, like RINOCare.

Now I’m certainly not advocating for Trump usurping the Legislative branch like the last guy did – I’m just stating the obvious. read more

Podcast – The Dirty Dems vs Jeff Sessions – Stop Listening to Ivanka

The democrats, led by the despicable Chuckie Schumer are pulling out all the stops, doing everything they can to disrupt President Trump, his Cabinet and his agenda. Senate Minority Leader Schumer has called for Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign – and anything less will be unacceptable to him and the rest of radicals in the party – which is all of them. They need to be stopped.

President Trump would be wise to stop listening to his daughter Ivanka. She is battling with Senior Adviser Steve Bannon over global warming. Bannon wants Trump to dump the Paris Climate agreement, while Ivanka and her hubby Jared Kushner want daddy to drop his opposition to the agreement. read more

The Religion of Climate Change Takes Another Hit from Trump

I wasn’t a Trump supporter during the primaries – I was a Cruz guy all the way. Let me rephrase. I was (and am) a Constitution guy all the way. Although I did finally vote for Trump in the general election, I didn’t even really support him then.

I’m still not sold on the guy, but I have to say that he has pleasantly surprised me thus far, particularly in regard to one topic – his position on global warming.

The lie of man-caused global warming, or what the left ethereally calls “climate change,” has been a serious bone of contention for those of us the right for decades now. Democrat or Republican – it never seemed to have mattered. The left formed a religion around the hoax and the establishment right just went along, year after year, just, it seemed, to get along.

Cruz was, and is still, one of the few who stood steadfast against the lie, while Trump claimed he did. Like other things, I wasn’t sure I believed him. His rhetoric said he believed it was all a hoax, but I wasn’t certain he would follow through.

Then, after the election, I read from the Washington Post site of a request from the Trump transition team to the Energy Department, “asking agency officials to identify which employees and contractors have worked on forging an international climate pact as well as domestic efforts to cut the nation’s carbon output.” read more

Podcast – Obama’s Global Warming Website is History

At exactly 12 noon on Friday, January 20, 2017, the White House website changed. Everything regarding global warming and climate change was removed and replaced with Trump’s pro-energy initiatives. Hooray for that!

Needless to say – but I’m going to say it anyway – the leftist global warming weenies are apoplectic that any mention to climate change has been removed. It’s as if man-caused climate change no longer exists – which is doesn’t – and hasn’t.

The liberal site “Motherboard” wrote that scientists and activists – one in the same in this case – are feverishly trying to download the vital government global warming data and save it for posterity, so it is not lost forever. That would a shame, wouldn’t it?

Listen, as I run through and pick apart the Motherboard article. read more
