November Environment & Climate News:
 

Utah Has Chance to Improve Science and Climate Education in Schools
H. Sterling Burnett, Deseret News
Over the objections of some of its members, Utah’s State Board of Education has decided to review its science standards for the state’s schools. This is a wise decision because the current standards are 15 years old and science has made huge advances over the past decade. Knowledge has grown, theories have arisen and been discarded, and technologies have changed. In the realm of science, schools should be teaching students how to think, not what to think. READ MORE

EPA Rescinds Clean Power Plan|


The November issue of Environment & Climate News reports the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency filed a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in the Federal Register, proposing to rescind former President Barack Obama’s Clean Power Plan. “The war on fossil fuels is nearing an end,” said Heartland Institute President Tim Huelskamp. “This is a wise, science-based decision by Administrator Scott Pruitt and President Donald Trump. The real winners here are not only coal miners and coal states, but all Americans who simply can’t afford massive increases in their energy bills as a result of the Clean Power Plan,” Huelskamp said.

Also in this issue:

  • New York’s Clean Energy Standard, requiring at least 50 percent of all the electricity sold by utilities in the state come from renewable sources of generation by 2030, could cost ratepayers close to $1 trillion over the course of the mandate.

Lessons from the Dakota Access Pipeline
Bette Grande, RealClearEnergy

The Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) is expected to begin carrying crude oil from western North Dakota to Illinois by the end of May, but the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe plans to pursue efforts in and out of court to stop it and other energy infrastructure projects. We in North Dakota know the DAPL protest is not about water and not about sacred or historic sites; this protest is about politics, intimidation, and bullying. The alt-left continues its efforts to shut down DAPL, a project that was fully vetted, passed every regulatory requirement, and is now 100 percent complete. If environmental radicals are successful in bullying DAPL out of commission, it would have a chilling effect on private investment in future traditional energy projects.

Are Scientists Preparing for a FlipFlop Back to Global Cooling Predictions?
H. Sterling Burnett, The Philadelphia Inquirer
The global warming debate has reached a new, and chilling, level. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch reports discussing with the FBI pursuing legal action against companies, research institutions, and scientists who debate whether humans are causing catastrophic climate change. This is an unprecedented politicization of justice and attack on our First Amendment right to freedom of speech. READ MORE


Science Supports Public’s Rejection of Climate Change Hype
H. Sterling Burnett, Inside Sources
Heartland’s H. Sterling Burnett writes a devastating reply to sociologist Robert Brulle, who turned to the Washington Post on January 6 to continue his campaign to attribute the American public’s rejection of global warming alarmism to “the coordinated efforts of conservative foundations and fossil fuel corporations to promote this uncertainty.”  According to Burnett, “The main reason I don’t accept the so-called ‘consensus view’ on climate change is it violates the scientific method. Virtually every testable prediction made concerning the harmful impacts of climate change has been proven to be incorrect.” READ MORE

Heartland research fellow H. Sterling Burnett wrote a stinging rebuke of global warming alarmists for the editorial page of Investor’s Business Daily, an article you simply have to read and forward to your friends. “‘How many people do you want to kill or let die?’ That's how I’m going to respond from now on to anyone who argues we should end or sharply restrict fossil fuel use to prevent global warming,” Burnett writes. READ MORE
  

Someone Tell the Record Polar Ice Cap It Should Be Melting
James M. Taylor, The Heartland Institute
The Southern Hemisphere polar ice cap for the month of April 2014 surpassed its greatest April extent in recorded history. Ironically, the record Antarctic ice extent occurred as global warming alarmists released a paper claiming recent global warming has now made it inevitable that Antarctica will lose its ice cap nearly...1,000 years from now. The establishment media has given the alarmist paper extensive and uncritical press coverage, even though objective scientists have pointed out glaring flaws in the paper...READ MORE

Erosion is a problem that persists to this day, and it’s responsible for dust storms, mudslides, and sinkholes. Fortunately, plants in forests, grasslands, and everywhere else set roots in the soil and help the soil stay put, and plants around the globe are getting a boost from increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere...READ MORE

Reasons to Oppose a Carbon Tax

H. Sterling Burnett, Climate Change Weekly


Earlier this month, the U.S. House of Representatives passed an anti-carbon-tax resolution – expressing concerns that a tax on carbon, applied to 85 percent of our nation’s energy, would be detrimental to the economy. Reports by the Congressional Budget Office and the National Association of Manufacturers reveals a carbon tax could eliminate 21 million jobs over the next 40 years. Additionally, CBO notes the tax would be highly regressive, harming the poorest American households the most. READ MORE

The Carbon Tax Scam
Alan Caruba, The Heartland Institute
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is vital to all life on Earth, but most particularly to every piece of vegetation that grows on it. Top climatologists tell me it plays a very small role, if any, in Earth’s climate or weather. Why would anyone expect a gas that represents 400 parts per million of all atmospheric gases, barely 0.04% of all atmospheric gases, to have the capacity to affect something as huge and dynamic as the weather or climate?

Research & Commentary: State Carbon Taxes

Taylor Smith, The Heartland Institute
Carbon tax proponents argue carbon dioxide is a “pollutant” and taxing emissions of it will reduce its harm. Heartland Institute President Joseph L. Bast, however, notes CO2 emissions are a “measure of energy use,” which is “the single most important input into our economy.” The carbon tax, essentially a tax on energy use, would do significant harm to the economy...READ MORE

Revisiting The Mother Of All ‘Conspiracy Theories’ (Energy Efficiency)

 

Twenty five years ago Presidential candidate Ross Perot secured 19% of the popular vote by discussing economic issues related to NAFTA, UN Agenda 21 Development Plan and the Kyoto Protocol. Perot supporters were labeled as angry nut-bags and nationalist for questioning multi-trillion dollar initiatives created in complete secrecy by the Global elites.


To be clear, original conspiracy theories concerned the media’s efforts to suppress all dialog regarding the politicians, business leaders and radical anti-Capitalist groups promoting a type of European Socialism for America. Media labeled American’s as angry knuckle-dragging bigots for rejecting their theories regarding Global Warming, while refusing to disclose any information on shadowy non-profit groups like the Energy Foundation which were producing the suspect science for government...MORE

The Real Purpose Behind Global Warming

 

The true environmental problem seems to be human breathing accounting for nearly half of the natural CO2 in the atmosphere exclusive of natural gas consumption and the automobile. Man is therefore viewed as an 'eco-cancer' by globalists and other crackpot scientists who presume the masses are destroying the earth. Yet there is NO evidence of significant temperature increases across the globe despite CO2 releases many times larger than the earth's natural carbon dioxide content. WHY? Because plants metabolize CO2 at faster rates and more limestone is formed according to the concentration driving force governed by reaction Kinetics.

Atmospheric equilibrium is maintained and once more the law of Conservation of Mass is vindicated. The Normal Plant Animal Cycle diagram depicts the carbon flow between plants and animals.

List of Appendices


From Appendix C, we see that the Incident Air Volume over the U.S. at 1000 ft is 1.056 x 1015 ft3. But, lets examine the earth's atmospheric bottle at just 10 ft above grade for our chart purposes. Since CO2 occurs naturally in the atmosphere at approximately 0.04% by volumeCO2now. org indicates the Nov 2015 atmospheric CO2 concentration at 400.16 parts per million, normal variation within the 0.04% atmospheric concentration. So our atmospheric concentration per the chart is calculated as:

3,787,425 miles2  x   (5,280 ft)2 / 1 mile2  x  10 ft above grade  x  0.04% CO2 / ft3 of air  =  4.22 x 1013 ft3 of CO2 at a 10 ft elevation in our chosen atmospheric bottle.


Appendix D shows the most significant man made sources of greenhouse gases. Note that the single largest contributor to atmospheric greenhouse gas is the industrial use of natural gas followed closely by the automobile. The war on fossil fuel has accomplished nothing more than to increase natural gas consumption. Now you know the underlying motive behind the de-industrialization of America and shipping manufacturing jobs overseas.

 
Most importantly, note that if both natural gas consumption and the automobile were totally eliminated, human breathing would be the dominant source of greenhouse gas as shown in the above chart. This is the underlying impetus for globalists to force the world's population down to around 1 billion people by any and all means available.  ISIS Created by US & NATO T raining & Recruiting Jihadists  is very likely one such means  

 

Killing off vast numbers of the world's population is science Czar John Holdren's response to climate change in the 1977 book 'Ecoscience', co-authored by Holdren and colleagues Paul and Anne Ehrlich. Natural News has noted that ".. we've already seen shocking statements from many scientists about their desire to use genetically engineered viral strains to accomplish global depopulation goals."  The 'final solution' is to kill vast numbers of the population to effect a three-fold reduction in carbon dioxide because fewer people use less gasoline and natural gas which translates to less carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
