They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney the U.S. wouldn’t support “green” policies. And they were right:
President Barack Obama signed a bill on Tuesday shielding U.S. airlines from paying for each ton of carbon their planes flying into and out of Europe emit, despite a recent move by Europe to suspend its proposed measure for one year.
The carbon fee bill was the first piece of legislation debated on the House floor after Congress returned from recess on November 13, and had been cleared by the Senate in September in a rare unanimous vote.
Shock new email revelations show that since 2007 senior members of the UK’s prestigious Institute of Physics (IoP) cynically locked down any debate about man-made global warming. Now seasoned writer, Andrew Montford, draws on hundreds of leaked emails exposing how a clique of Big Green activists hijacked one of Britain’s most venerated institutions to shamelessly promote a one-sided version of the hottest environmental issue.
In his startling new pamphlet, ‘Institutional Bias’ Montford lays out the evidence selected from a vast body of leaked internal emails. Two whistleblower insiders were the source, Peter F. Gill, formerly the chairman of the IoP’s Energy Group and Terri Jackson (MSc Mphil), former science adviser to Northern Ireland’s First Minister, Rev. Ian Paisley and Founder of the IOP’s Energy Group.
COP 18 in DohaMost meteorologists think global warming is bunk and put about as much faith in it as they do in Groundhog's Day. But alas, their unabashed leaders have signed off on the theory as fact by the most scientific method available: 'Cuz we said so.' Even though climate experts have said ad nauseam that the not-very-super-storm Sandy is not indicative of climate change. Maybe they just got caught up in the crazy, lazy alarmism at the COP 18. From Prensa Latina:
"Climate change is happening right in front of our eyes," the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) insisted today, citing some examples in the extreme climate changes on Earth. The melting of the Arctic Ocean ice, which this year reached its lowest level and the fact that the first 10 months of 2012 will mark the ninth warmest record since record-keeping began in the mid-nineteenth century, were some of the data provided by the organization during the Doha talks on climate change.
Feed me, Seymour! Put cash in hungry maw!It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to see that poorer nations could care less about the climate and simply want richer nations to hand over money, freely and willingly. They'd be better off asking for cash to feed the poor and stave off diseases than this bald attempt to put money in their coffers. Wait, they already get money for that. From Global News:
The first signs of tensions emerged at the U.N. climate talks on Tuesday as delegates from island and African nations chided rich countries for refusing to offer up new emissions cuts over the next eight years which could help stem global warming.
