John Kerry Claims ‘We Have 9 Years Left’ to Avoid Climate Catastrophe

H/T Western Journal.

Forty years ago the discredited High Priest of Globull Waring told us we only had ten years before Globull Warming would do us in.

Waving a rhetorical banner of doom and trashing former President Donald Trump, Biden administration climate czar John Kerry proclaimed Friday that looming climate disaster is only nine years away.

Kerry spoke to the Munich Security Conference as part of the hoopla surrounding the formal readmission of the United States to the Paris climate accords, which seeks to reduce global emissions.

“Three years ago, scientists warned that if we want to prevent the worst consequences of the climate crisis, we have to limit the planet’s warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius. That’s the magic number by consensus among most scientists,” Kerry said Friday, according to a transcript of his remarks posted by Yahoo.

“The same group of scientists told us that we had, three years ago, about 12 years. So now, three years later — three years wasted, sadly, largely because of our president in the United States — around 2030 is the date in which we have to get the world now on the right path in order to cap the warming at that level of 1.5. So we are absolutely, clearly, without question now inside the decisive decade.”

Kerry made similar comments in an interview with CBS News.

“Well, the scientists told us three years ago we had 12 years to avert the worst consequences of climate crisis. We are now three years gone, so we have nine years left,” he said.

“Even if we did everything that we said we were going to do when we signed up in Paris we would see a rise in the earth’s temperature to somewhere around 3.7 degrees or more, which is catastrophic,” the climate czar added.

“There is no room for B.S. anymore. There’s no faking it on this one.”

Kerry claimed that the storms that set records in Texas for cold and snow are part of what he wants to stop.

“I think it’s a very appropriate way to think of it, so it is directly related to the warming, even though your instinct is to say, wait a minute, this is the new Ice Age. But it’s not,” he said. “It is coming from the global warming and it threatens all the normal weather patterns.”

Not everyone had the same opinion.

“He’s not entirely correct,” Texas State climatologist John Neilsen-Gammon told Fox News. “In Texas, when we get cold we get it from the Arctic, it doesn’t form here, it has to move here. The direct temperature effect [of climate change] on cold weather would make extreme cold weather in Texas milder.”

Kerry’s warning is reminiscent of past claims that set a date for catastrophe.

In 2017, The Wall Street Journal took a look at how far from the mark former Vice President Al Gore’s 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth” was.

“The former vice president has a poor record,” The Journal reported. “Over the past 11 years Mr. Gore has suggested that global warming had caused an increase in tornadoes, that Mount Kilimanjaro’s glacier would disappear by 2016, and that the Arctic summers could be ice-free as soon as 2014. These predictions and claims all proved wrong.”

Alarming claims about the environment are nothing new.

“Back in the late 1980s, the UN claimed that if global warming were not checked by 2000, rising sea levels would wash entire countries away,” Robert Bradley of the Institute for Energy Research wrote in 2018.

“There is some levity in the charade. In 2009, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown predicted that the world had only 50 days to save the planet from global warming. But fifty days, six months, and eight years later, the earth seems fine.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meet the US Workers Who Were Devastated by Biden’s Climate Executive Orders in Just a Day

H/T Western Journal.

Stopping construction on the Keystone pipeline with the ripple effect will most likely effect and additional 10,000 people.

The people hurt during the ripple effect from the construction stopping on the Keystone pipeline will get little or no coverage by the drive-by media.

Newton’s third law of motion tells us that, “For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.”

The new leader of the free world might have just proven Newton wrong.

Hours after he received the greatest honor of his life, an adoring establishment media looked on as newly sworn-in President Joe Biden scribbled his name on an executive order revoking the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. This simple act of applying pen to paper on Inauguration Day appears to have triggered a very unequal and opposite reaction.

Immediately, thousands of workers lost their jobs.

But the misery didn’t end there. Many Americans are experiencing the ripple effects of this ill-considered action.

The New York Post’s Salena Zito shared the story of Laurie and Wally Cox, owners of the Stroppel Hotel in Midland, South Dakota.

“On the morning of Jan. 20, every room … was filled with men and women who work on the Keystone XL pipeline. … By 4 p.m., the entire place was cleared out, leaving the historic hotel silent for the first time since owners Laurie and Wally Cox took it over six months ago,” Zito wrote.

Sitting in the now-empty hotel, Laurie Cox told Zito, “We structured our prices to suit the per diems of each trade. We created a common room because there is a real sense of community within these workers, and we thrived since the day we opened our doors. … Our whole world turned upside down with the stroke of a pen.”

As they spoke, Cox’s husband was hours away looking for work as a millwright.

She said “the entire town became an instant ghost down” on Jan. 20.

David and Kristina Dickerson, both of whom lost their jobs when Biden signed the Keystone XL pipeline order, told Steve Doocy, co-host of Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” that they “feel betrayed” by the Biden administration.

“We’ve had to actually dip into our retirement and our 401(k), just trying to survive until something like this come up. We’ve been depending on this to happen and it just all of a sudden got ripped out from under us and we’re not going to be able to do it now,” David Dickerson said Wednesday.

Kristina Dickerson said three of their four children work in the oil and gas industry as well.

RELATED: Betrayed by Biden: Oil and Gas Workers Reveal How They Feel About Biden Killing Keystone Pipeline

Similar scenarios are playing out across America.

Another executive order Biden signed on day one placed a 60-day moratorium on new oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits on federal lands and waters. If this pause becomes permanent, it will devastate the economies of New Mexico and other oil-producing states.

Advertisement – story continues below

The Associated Press reported Jan. 22 that “top Republicans in the state as well as local leaders in communities that border the Permian Basin — one of the most productive regions in the U.S. — say any moves to make permanent the suspension would be economically devastating for the state. Half of New Mexico’s production happens on federal land and amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars in royalties each year.”

The report said Biden’s order would hit New Mexico especially hard because “spending on education and other public programs hinges on the [oil] industry’s success.”

Behind each of Biden’s sweeping decrees are American people. Workers who are losing their jobs. Families who are now facing financial struggles. Children whose parents no longer can afford to send them to college. This misery will lead some families to split up. Some will turn to alcohol and drugs. Others may choose suicide.

But for Biden and those who worship at the altar of climate change, this is tremendous progress.

America’s economy is already reeling from government shutdowns related to a pandemic.

If the Biden administration had jobs available in energy-efficient industries into which displaced workers could immediately transition, it might be justified (not really) in making these abrupt changes. But the truth is, very few jobs in “clean energy” are currently available, and they likely won’t be for years. Moreover, workers would require some training or even a long period of training to qualify for the positions that are available. Most importantly, they would be earning less money.

This administration appears to be “winging it.” With a complete disregard for the human costs of their actions, Biden and his team are making it up as they go along.

In addition to turning people’s lives upside-down, they’re killing the fossil fuel industry before they have a viable source of “clean” energy to replace it.

Estimates of the percentage of America’s energy needs that are met by fossil fuels vary widely. It’s difficult to provide a definitive amount because each sector uses different amounts of a variety of energy sources. For instance, “petroleum provides about 91% of the transportation sector’s energy consumption, but less than 1% of the electric power sector’s primary energy use,” according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

However, I did find one constant. Renewable, “clean” energy, which includes solar, wind, geothermal, hydroelectric and biomass power, supplies between 11 and 19 percent of U.S. energy needs, depending on the sector.

Clearly, the country is nowhere near ready to end our dependence on fossil fuels.

Without a viable source of alternative energy, it won’t be long before America becomes, once again, dependent on other nations for our energy supply. And that will ultimately threaten our national security.

The Biden administration brain trust needs to put on the brakes and think things through. If it chooses to enact these policies, it must come up with solutions to address the unintended consequences they cause, such as high unemployment and underemployment rates as well as the loss of our energy independence. Because if the frenetic pace of these reckless executive orders continues, America is headed to a bad place.

Looks like “Scranton Joe” has gone over to the dark side.

WATCH: Trump Science Advisor Will Happer Says Global Warming Is a ‘Scam’

H/T Breitbart.

Will Happer is correct globull warming is a scam and Al Gore knows it is a scam.

(Madrid, Spain) — President Trump’s former Science Advisor, Dr. William Happer, has spoken out against the global warming scare.

“It’s a scam,” he says.

Happer, Professor of Physics Emeritus at Princeton University and, till September this year, the science advisor on the Trump Administration’s National Security Council, was speaking to Breitbart News in Madrid, Spain, at a conference staged by the Heartland Institute.

He described how he first spotted the nature of the scam during the Clinton era, when he was briefly director of the Department of Energy’s Office of Science before being sacked by Vice President Al Gore. Gore didn’t like the way Happer was asking so many inconvenient questions about his friends’ supposed “climate” research projects.

Happer said:

“I’d have people come into my office in Washington once a week and tell me about the work they were doing. We were spending the taxpayers’ money and had a big budget — $3.5 billion — which was worth a lot back then. Most of them were very happy to tell a bureaucrat what they were doing. They were surprised and flattered to be invited. But the exception was people in climate, who were always very defensive. ‘Why do you want me to come to Washington?’ they’d say. ‘We work for Mister Gore.’

That’s when I began to realise that there was something funny about this area of science […] They would show up. But it would be very painful seminars, not like normal seminars. We were supporting the Human Genome Project and those scientists couldn’t wait to come to Washington and tell me about the latest gene sequencing machine and how well it was doing and how cheap it was. It would be the same with the high energy physicists in their search for the top quark and how close they had come. I wondered: ‘Why don’t the climate scientists feel the same way?’”

Asked whether he thought Al Gore knows it’s a scam or whether he genuinely believes in man-made “global warming”, Happer said:

“You know, I’ve asked myself that question many times. I’ve met him once or twice. I still don’t know what the answer is. It has been very profitable for him so he’s a very wealthy man.”

Happer also spoke to the Heartland Institute about his time in the White House and his views on climate change. You can see the interview here.

CLUELESS! NY Gov. Cuomo Says There Were No Hurricanes Before Global Warming

 

H/T The Lid.

Little Andy Cuomo’s ignorance is showing.

3f525y-1200x630

Maybe he was just trying to protect his baby brother because today he said something so stupid, that Andrew Cuomo must have taken the family Fredo title from his brother Chris. Appearing on MSNBC on Friday, Gov. Cuomo declared there were no hurricanes or tornadoes before global warming.

Notice the anchors didn’t push back?

Giving Gov. Cuomo the benefit of the doubt, let’s assume he was only talking about storms in New York State, and let’s also assume that the unproven climate change hypothesis has been proven, here are just a few of the dozens of examples of major storms occurring before the global warming fearmongering began:

A hurricane in Sept. of 1893, “Many Points in New York,  New Jersey, and Pennsylvania Suffer Great Damage.”

Gov. Cuomo hurricanes

A Hurricane thirteen months later killed ten because it caused the walls of a factory to blow down.

Gov. Cuomo hurricanes

Then there was the great hurricane of 1938, also known as the Long Island Express. Out of the 600 killed in the path of the storm, more than 50 of them were Long Islanders. Parts of the LIRR were destroyed, but no one noticed it because back then like today, LIRR trains never ran on schedule.

Gov. Cuomo hurricanes

New York is outside the part of America known as tornado alley, but it does suffer from tornadic activity once in a while. For example, in July 1904, there was a major F3 tornado in Chappaqua, NY.  The newspaper story below is from the North Carolina Morning post the day after the tornado, July 17, 1904.

 

If Governor Cuomo had done some research  (assuming he can read), he would know that there is no connection between major storms and the amount of “greenhouse gases” in the atmosphere. All he had to do is go to best climate change-related website Climate Depot which is run by my  friend Marc Morano, an internationally recognized expert on the truth behind the unproven climate change hypothesis, as well as being an  authorfilmmaker, lecturer, and TV news guest (he’s a great guy but the climate crazies hate him). I found this at Climate Depot:

Landfalls of major hurricanes in the U.S. have actually declined over the past 140 years, long before humans began burning large quantities of fossil fuels. And the downward trend in storms is holding steady over the past several decades.

As Roger Pielke, the professor of Environmental Studies at the University of Colorado testified before Congress, “The world is presently in an era of unusually low weather disasters.” Pielke Jr. points out that both hurricane landfalls and strength were “down by approximately 20 percent since 1900” and according to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, the worst decade for major hurricanes was the 1940s. In fact, as this chart shows: As carbon dioxide has increased in the atmosphere, landfalling hurricanes have declined in the United States.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change itself reported in 2013 that “No robust trends in annual numbers of tropical storms, hurricanes and major hurricane counts have been identified over the past 100 years in the North Atlantic Basin.” A 2016 analysis by Kenneth Richard found 33 peer-reviewed scientific papers revealing a lack of connection between global warming and hurricanes.

But what about the recent hurricanes… Michael, Irma, Maria, Harvey. Don’t they prove that hurricane activity is beginning to ramp up? In a word… No.

What the media has largely ignored is the fact that between 2005 and 2017 no major hurricanes made landfall in the United States. A major hurricane is defined as a Category 3 or larger. That 12-year span was the largest extended period of no hurricanes hitting the U.S. mainland since at least 1900, and possibly even the U.S. Civil War. The U.S. has had an amazing vacation from major hurricane activity during that time. When Harvey hit in 2017, it was simply a return to normal.

So what did Governor Andrew Cuomo prove with his climate statement on Friday? Well—besides being divisive (once telling conservatives they had no place in NY), he’s not too smart.  And another thing proved was that the person who called his brother, CNN’s Chris Cuomo- “Fredo,” was incorrect. It is Andrew Cuomo who is the family idiot. From now on Gov. Cuomo is Gov. Fredo.

Oh and one more thing Governor Fredo. We’d much rather have Donald Trump living in New York than you.

Gov. Cuomo

Greta Thunberg Calls on Facebook to Censor Her Critics

H/T Breitbart.

Like a good little speech, Nazi Little Greta Thunberg wants to censor her critics.

The celebrated Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has threatened to quit Facebook if the social media platform refuses to silence her critics.

“I am, like many others, questioning whether I should keep using Facebook or not,” Thunberg wrote in a Facebook post last week. “Allowing hate speech, the lack of fact-checking and, of course, the issues of interfering with democracy… are among many, many other things that are very upsetting.”

“The constant lies and conspiracy theories about me and countless others, of course, result in hate, death threats and ultimately violence. This could easily be stopped if Facebook wanted to. I find the lack of taking responsibility very disturbing,” she added.

The “Youth Climate Strike” founder has enjoyed unprecedented stardom for her climate activism, winning encomium from such leftist heavyweights as Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Elon Musk.

Musk said last month that Thunberg has “better reasoning & more heart than the vast majority of political leaders,” whereas Hillary called her a “gutsy woman” and former president Obama praised the 16-year-old as “one of our planet’s greatest advocates.”

Yet Ms. Thunberg is finding criticism enervating, suggesting that those who oppose her crusade are “interfering with democracy” and should be censored by Facebook.

The climate icon urged her fans to “challenge” Facebook to silence her antagonists, insisting that “if enough of us demand change — then change will come.”

Thunberg’s social media issues do not end with Facebook, however, and she has similarly complained that Twitter has not done a good job protecting her, either.

“It has come to my attention that a few people have been trying to impersonate me or falsely claim that they ‘represent’ me in order to communicate with political leaders, famous actors, singers and musicians,’” she said in an October 25 tweet.

“I apologize to anyone who’s been contacted — and maybe even misled by this kind of behavior. I hope that those who want to sincerely reach out to me will do so using the recognized channels,” she added.

The Swedish teen activist berated the United Nations General Assembly last month, scolding world leaders for having “stolen my dreams and my childhood.”

“This is all wrong,” Thunberg declared to the members. “I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean, yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you?”

“People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing,” she said. “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you?”

Climate Crazies Now Say Netflix Causes Climate Change

H/T The Lid.

I am proud to do my part to contribute to climate change by watching Netflix.

3esann-1200x630

Netflix makes me laugh…literally. Their comedy specials are wonderful. Just in the past few months, they’ve featured comedy from some of my favorites such as Gabriel Iglesias and Jeff Dunham. Apparently, the supporters of the climate change hypothesis are jealous of the streaming service because they released something almost as funny as a comedian on Netflix. They are complaining that watching Netflix (or porn) releases CO2 into the atmosphere and causes Climate Change

Per Maxime Efoui-Hess, which is associated with the French think tank The Shift Project: “Watching a half-hour show leads to emissions of up to 1.6 kilograms of carbon dioxide.” That’s the equivalent of driving 3.9 miles.

Last year, online video streaming services produced carbon emissions equal to the size of Spain, and that amount may double, according to Efoui-Hess.

Trending: Rep. Wasserman-Schultz Accuses Customs Director Cuccinelli Of White Supremacy

While 34 percent of online traffic comes from streaming videos on Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu (amongst others), the next biggest group is online porn.

That’s right, America. First, they wanted to take away the fossil fuels that heat your house and the electricity that runs our air conditioners and enable our cars to move.  Then they want us to stop eating steak because cows fart and want Americans to stop traveling by airplane (don’t they know it’s a long walk to Tipperary, wherever that is). The climate crazies also want to destroy the economy with their Green New Deal, which would have no effect on climate.  Their panic over an unproven hypothesis means we’ll be stuck in our houses that will be freezing during the winter and boiling hot during the summer because even if we have jobs, we couldn’t get to them anyway because we have no cars.

With all this misery created because of an unproven theory, climate crazies want to rip away our laughter by telling us not to stream NetFlix.   And don’t ask me about the porn (unless we are talking off-line). The Shift Project is a French think tank…I thought the French loved porn almost as much as they enjoy surrendering. Heck, France is famous for selling “French postcards” pictures of nude women.

Per the NY Post, streaming services already growing are about to take a great leap forward

Meanwhile, Netflix boasted a 53 percent increase in international revenue from 2017 to 2018, and new highly anticipated streaming services are coming, including Disney+ and Apple TV+.

Then there’s the issue of ever-increasing screen size and quality, which takes even more energy to power. The Consumer Technology Association found that the average screen size in 1997 was just 22 inches. By 2021, they predict the average television size to be 50 inches. Popular 4K resolution screens use about 30 percent more energy than the high-definition screens that preceded it. Soon, powerful 8K resolution screens, which debuted last year, may become an industry standard.

I do not anticipate, however, that the Disney+ service will have adult movies, so don’t count on seeing “Snow White, One Girl’s Search For Sexual Pleasure With Seven Little People,” anytime soon.

Here’s the real solution.  Until science proves that climate change is genuine by looking at the environment instead of flawed computer models that have been wrong in the vast majority of their predictions or explain why the Earth hasn’t warmed since Bubba Clinton was president…

 

…I am going to keep on streaming Netflix comedy specials, keep the temperature in my house at a pleasant 68-70 degrees, drive my car all over the place, travel to other countries by air, and eat nice juicy Kosher steaks.

University Fires Professor Who Proved Polar Bears, are NOT Being Killed Off by Global Warming

H/T Godfather Politics.

In the bible John 8:32 says, And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

In this case, ye shall know the truth and it will make you unemployed.

Susan Crockford, the zoologist who proved that polar bears were not dying out because of climate change, has been dumped by her university.

For years climate change religionists claimed that the polar bear population in the arctic was dying out because of global warming. But one zoologist proved that the bear population was not diminishing at all and the left’s claim of bear destruction was false. Now her university is dumping her for daring to report the truth.

After 15 years as an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Victoria, Crockford’s application for renewing her contract has been rejected without comment by the university.

Crockford has been a leading researcher in the history of dog domestication and scientific research into polar bears and has been an in-demand speaker on her expertise.

But, Crockford says that the university bowed to pressure from global warming religionists because she proved that polar bears are not dying out because of climate change.

The school has refused to say why it has fired her.

Per the Washington Times:

Ms. Crockford accused officials at the Canadian university of bowing to “outside pressure,” the result of her research showing that polar bear populations are stable and even thriving, not plummeting as a result of shrinking Arctic sea ice, defying claims of the climate change movement.

Her dismissal, which she announced Wednesday in a post on her Polar Bear Science blog, has spurred alarm over the implications for academic freedom and the rise of the “cancel culture” for professors and scientists who challenge climate catastrophe predictions.

“When push came to shove, UVic threw me under the bus rather than stand up for my academic freedom,” said Ms. Crockford, who earned a Ph.D. in interdisciplinary studies, specifically biology and anthropology, in 2004.

Crockford notes that her work at the university was celebrated by the school right up until the time she proved that the polar bear population has not diminished despite clams by leftist climate change gurus that the bears are failing because of global warming.

In 2017 the school stopped supporting her when the University of Victoria Speakers Bureau complained that she was not supportive enough of the left’s religious globaloney tenets.

Crockford says that the speaker’s bureau complaints, “poisoned support I might have expected from colleagues in the department.”

“The speakers’ bureau incident made it clear the administration had no intention of protecting my academic freedom against complaints from outside the university,” Crockford said.

 

Oil and Gas Workers in Canada Counter Greta Thunberg: Don’t Kill Our Jobs, We Power Your Cell Phone

H/T Breitbart.

Greta Thunberg is a rainwashed little robot spouting the BS she has been programmed with like all of the climate change robots do not have a clue how the power for their phones and electric cars comes from.

They think they are saving the planet by driving electric cars they do not have a clue that the electricity they are using is being produced by some sort of fossil fuel.

Thousands of young people who have bought into the United Nations’ and other manmade climate change believers’ prediction that the world is on the verge of extinction gathered in Alberta, Canada, on Friday to support the ongoing climate strikes launched by 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.

But this time there were counter-protesters representing the massive number of men and women who work in the country’s oil and natural gas industry, and whose jobs depend on the infrastructure that powers Canada and countries around the globe.

 “We care for the environment, of course we do,” a counter-protester said in a Daily Mail report. “What they need to understand is that we’re hurting and we also need to care about Alberta jobs.”

The Daily Mail report revealed how Thunberg’s and other activist’s ideas to completely transform the world’s energy infrastructure would hurt real people more than it would help the environment:

The honking horns of big rig trucks blared from a nearby thoroughfare, where vehicles emblazoned with ‘We love Canada energy’ signs were driving up and down.

“When they charged their iPhones last night, that power came from this plant,” he said, pointing to the former coal-fired Keephills power plant near Edmonton that was being converted to natural gas.

“Albertans and Canadians are practical people,’ he said. “They like real world solutions. Calling for the end of the modern industrial economy, advocating to put millions of people out of work… is not a real world solution.”

The Daily Mail reported that protesters were led by “indigenous drummers” and held signs with slogans, including “Be a Better Ancestor.”

“We cannot allow this crisis to continue to be a partisan, political question,” Thunberg said at the protest. “The climate and ecological crisis is far beyond party politics and the main enemy right now should not be any political opponents, because our main enemy is physics.”

“We are doing this because our future is at stake,” Thunberg said. “We will not be bystanders. We are doing this because we want the people in power to unite behind science.”

While Thunberg’s Fridays for Future movement calls for kids to cut classes every Friday to protest, the teen is taking months off from school to support demonstrations in the United States and Canada. She also plans to travel to Chile in December for another United Nations climate summit.

Thunberg came to the United States in August traveling from Europe to New York City on a state-of-the-art racing yacht that is solar- and wind-powered.

But her carbon-free trip has been criticized because the yacht’s crew flew by plane back and forth as part of the logistics for the journey, making a much greater “carbon footprint” than one girl traveling by plane would make.

As Breitbart News reported, Thunberg traveled to Canada in Terminator Arnold Schwarzenegger’s electric vehicle for the trip north from the United States.

It’s unclear how Thunberg will travel to South America.

“Alberta is home to Canada’s vast oil sands and holds the world’s third-largest crude reserves, but has struggled to recover from the 2014-15 global oil price crash because of delays building new export pipelines as a result of environmental opposition and regulatory hold-ups,” the Daily Mail reported. “Many energy sector workers and the Alberta government feel the oil sands, scorned by environmentalists for their high carbon emissions intensity, have been unfairly targeted and say the sector is making progress cutting greenhouse gas output.”

 

500 Scientists Write U.N.: ‘There Is No Climate Emergency

H/T Breitbart.

The 500 scientists will be dismissed as heretics.

More than 500 scientists and professionals in climate and related fields have sent a “European Climate Declaration” to the Secretary-General of the United Nations asking for a long-overdue, high-level, open debate on climate change.

Just as 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg addressed the U.N. Climate Action Summit in New York accusing world leaders of robbing her of her future, scientists were begging the United Nations to keep hysteria from obscuring facts.

“Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” the declaration states. “Scientists should openly address the uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real benefits as well as the imagined costs of adaptation to global warming, and the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of mitigation.”

The scientists underscored the importance of not rushing into enormously expensive climate action before fully ascertaining the facts.

“There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent,” they declared. “However, CO2-mitigation measures are as damaging as they are costly. For instance, wind turbines kill birds and bats, and palm-oil plantations destroy the biodiversity of the rainforests.”

The signatories of the declaration also insist that public policy must respect scientific and economic realities and not just reflect the most fashionable frenzy of the day.

“There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic and alarm,” they note. “We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050.”

“If better approaches emerge, and they certainly will, we have ample time to reflect and adapt. The aim of international policy should be to provide reliable and affordable energy at all times, and throughout the world,” they state.

In particular, the scientists criticize the general-circulation models of climate on which international policy is currently founded as “unfit for their purpose.”

“Therefore, it is cruel as well as imprudent to advocate the squandering of trillions on the basis of results from such immature models,” they propose. “Current climate policies pointlessly, grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, continuous electrical power.”

“We urge you to follow a climate policy based on sound science, realistic economics and genuine concern for those harmed by costly but unnecessary attempts at mitigation,” they declare.

2.9 Billion Bird Deaths Linked to Solar, Wind

H/T Town Hall.

Just think of the wailing and gnashing of teeth if these 2.9 Billion birds had died because of big oil.

Feathers at the foot of a wind turbine. Bird droppings at the base of a solar panel. A coroner could use these signs to establish the cause of mass bird death. And a novelist could pen a murder mystery titled: Death by Renewable Energy.

In 1969, there were far more active coal plants in America than today. However, in 1969, there were also 2.9 billion more birds in America. In the last decade alone, 289 coal plants have closed—a 40 percent reduction. Meanwhile, wind turbines and solar panels are going up at a record pace and scientists are reporting a “full-blown crisis” in the disappearance of 29 percent of North American birds.

“Cats eat more birds than wind turbines kill!” claim wind and solar activists. But there are fewer cats in the United States today than in 2013. Meanwhile, wind turbines and solar panels are going up at an alarming rate.

Why is nearly a third of our bird population disappearing? Common birds including sparrows, robins, warblers, blackbirds and starlings play an integral role in pollinating flowers, regenerating forests by spreading seeds, and controlling pests. We may take birds for granted—but we rely on them for a healthy ecosystem.

“Habitat loss” is the top reason for this bird disappearing act according to a new analysis in the journal Science. Let’s connect the dots. Coal plants are shuttering. Wind and solar farms consume vast tracts of land. The bright blades and lights in turbines and solar panels actually attract birds—and the insects they eat. Therefore, Audubon reports, even if wind turbines are retrofitted: “every species of bird approaches a turbine in a different manner, so training blades to recognize all birds could take years of research.”

Five years ago—in 2014—Yahoo! News reported that wind turbines are responsible for killing over 573,000 birds annually. Bird scientist Shawn Smallwood testified that one large solar farm alone—the Ivanpah solar panel project in California—likely kills 28,380 birds annually. Meanwhile, we’ve built more wind turbines and solar farms. Scientists claim to be “stunned” that birds are dropping in droves. But the writing, or bird guts, has been on the turbine blade for years.

Democrat Billionaires Get Richer Off Solar, Poor Pay Higher Energy Prices

President Trump is the only American billionaire in recent memory (other than the late Steve Jobs) who understands that socialism destroys the economy and hurts poor people.

Facebook founder billionaire Mark Zuckerberg (who once hosted a “Hoodie Summit” for President Obama, inviting him to Facebook headquarters for a town hall in 2011 to help him get re-elected) is about to get much richer now that he’s building six solar projects – each the size of four football fields – in the New Mexico desert. Fortunately for Zuck, when a Democrat destroys land, it’s called “meeting energy goals.”

Billionaire former Google CEO Eric Schmitt endorsed Barack Obama for president in 2008. In 2013, he cashed in on his friendship with Obama to allocate a $1.6 billion stimulus loan toward Ivanpah solar thermal project along the California-Nevada border. Google was a joint owner of Ivanpah, and “only” destroyed 4,000 acres of pristine land and displaced a desert tortoise in the process of littering the desert with hundreds of thousands of mirrors.

The same executives jetting around the world and residing in mansions want to send the rest of us back to the caveman era. What is it to them if the rest of us lose power? They can afford to buy up 4,000 acres in the Southwest and turn it into their private solar project. Or, a crony capitalist will offer them a subsidy.

As birds die and billionaires binge, poor people pay higher prices—and face energy shortages thanks to the Democrat push for “clean” energy. Even in the energy-rich state of Texas, there are whispers of a “mandatory power cut” for consumers amid triple-digit heat. Wind and solar puts a strain on the power grid because it is not very profitable or efficient. In August, Texas became “the most expensive place to buy power in all of the United States’ major markets,” reported Express-News.

Wind and solar are about 2,000 years out-of-date, and I don’t normally associate antiquity with cleanliness. The Roman and Egyptian ruins are called “ruins” because of all the dust and rubble. It’s a myth that archaic technology will result in clean air and healthy ecosystems.

We will save birds—and the ecosystems they nourish—when we stop destroying their habitats with lethal blades and blinding pane.
