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

Anniversary of a Global Warming Fail

by: the Common Constitutionalist

With the onslaught of snow that buried much of the east coast this past weekend, I recall a prediction of just a few years ago. It was part of an article from 2006 which was updated in 2012, entitled “20 THINGS YOUR GRANDKIDS MAY NEVER BE ABLE TO SEE.”

The article began with: “So here we look at 20 things that our grandchildren may never see by the year 2050…” The number one item the British authors were dismayed about was: “British winters are getting warmer and wetter, due to global warming. Climate experts predict that temperatures could rise by a minimum of 2.5C by 2050. This may mean that we’ll see no snow in the future – and our grandkids won’t be able to build real snowmen or enjoy snowball fights.”

I’m sure you noticed the caveat of “temperatures could rise,” not temperatures will rise.

Now some might say I’m nitpicking and the climate science, like any science, is not exact. In science, they say, one never gives definitive statements like “will.” That’s true except that warming alarmists, I mean scientists, have repeatedly declared that the science of global warming is settled – this all “credible” experts agree. Settled science is pretty definite, is it not? So why use hedge words like “could” and “may” instead of “will” and “shall?” Hmm. read more

Will Global Warming Cause a Most Powerful El Niño?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s been a couple of decades since we’ve experienced a powerful El Niño event. El Niño is a rise of the ocean surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, which in turn can cause some unusual weather events, such as heavy rains in the West, which of course they need desperately.

But the coming El Niño is being hailed as potentially much stronger than past events. And naturally, as one might expect, it’s been linked to global warming as the cause. Of course, what else would it be?

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)  is already predicting that this El Niño is “set to boost global warming to new record levels.”

And Kevin Trenberth, a climatologist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, in Boulder Colorado, says, “In an era of global warming, ocean currents and weather systems might not be able to bleed off all the heat pumped into the tropical seas. Periodically, it has to get rid of the excess that builds up, and that safety valve is El Niño.”

So what is that supposed to mean? Does it mean that the El Niño is merely a naturally occurring weather phenomenon that assists the earth in rebalancing the global climate? Or is he saying that this El Niño will be different? read more

Podcast – Christian Climate Alarmists Sign On With Obama – Worlds Most Unlucky Island

In this episode I discuss a crazy world where Evangelical Christian leaders endorse Obama and his new EPA Clean Power Plan to combat the fake scourge of man caused climate change that they are now calling a Climate Challenge. I also discuss La Reunion Island, where the MH370 aircraft wreckage has been found and why you may not wish to go there. read more
