Thousands March in Global Climate Change Rally

With newly appointed U.N. Messenger for Peace (climate change), Leonardo DiCaprio, and former Vice President Al Gore, tens of thousands marched in New York City and other cities around the world right before the United Nation’s Climate Summit. Chris Rock and Mark Ruffalo also joined the march that included a familiar message of the concern […]

Fighting Global Warming Will Cost $4 Trillion +

A new report from the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate reports that fighting global warming will cost $4 trillion over 15 years. However, the report also says: Countries will spend an extra $90 trillion on infrastructure. Countries will enact policies to reduce their carbon footprints. Expanding each participating country’s infrastructure, halt deforestation, regulate […]

Rate of Global Warming is Slowing and Nobody Knows Why

Despite hype to the contrary, the world has seen a slowdown in the rate of warming over the past few years. The change is causing many scientific organizations to adjust their climate change projections. Late last year the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reduced its projected warming from a range of 0.4 to 1.0 degrees […]

Calming Fears of Climate Change in Asia

Many climate studies have focused on South and Southeast Asia, as the region is considered uniquely vulnerable to the projected effects of climate change such as a reduction in crop yields, rising sea levels, flooding, a loss of biodiversity and drought. Many of these Asian countries are islands or are on peninsulas, with highly populated […]

Reduced Sunspots Increases Global Cooling

Reduced periods of sunspot activity correlate with cooler and very cold periods, with higher incidences producing opposite effects — according to a recent study, highlighted by Larry Bell. If a leading theory regarding why this occurs is correct, a weaker magnetic heliosphere surrounding our Solar System evidenced by low sunspot activity permits more cosmic rays […]

New White House Climate Change Initiative and Wrong Priorities

While the President barely lifts a finger to protect and strengthen our border with Mexico by announcing a new border initiative, the White House is still very actively promoting their climate change initiatives with yesterday’s latest big announcement. The White House commitments to the new initiative include: Convening Agriculture and Technology Leaders at the White […]

Slow Rise of Sea Level Despite NCA Climate Change Claim

Infrastructure is being damaged by sea level rise, heavy downpours, and extreme heat….Sea level rise, storm surge, and heavy downpours, in combination with continued development in coastal areas, are increasing damage to U.S. infrastructure including roads, buildings, and industrial facilities, and are also increasing risks to ports and coastal military installations. Flooding along rivers, lakes, […]

Fact Check: NCA Report’s Extreme Weather Claim

The NCA states the following: Climate disruptions to agriculture have been increasing and are projected to become more severe over this century. Some areas are already experiencing climate-related disruptions….From mid-century on, climate change is projected to have more negative impacts on crops and livestock across the country — a trend that could diminish the security […]

More Evidence of Global Cooling from NCA Report

According to the network of nationwide thermometers monitored by the United States Historical Climatology Network, James Taylor noted that 2014 so far has been the coldest year for the United States ever, at least through May 6. Taylor writes, Assertions that warming temperatures in the United States are causing a host of problems are soundly […]

Increased Human Emissions has its Benefits

Politically-funded and agenda-driven scientists who have built their careers on the theory that the exhaust from the burning of fossil fuels leads to a dramatic increase in temperatures and “the greenhouse effect” and who live well on the $2.6 billion dollars a year of Federal grants for global warming and climate change research cling to […]
