The Carbon Tax Rebate Scam

H. Sterling Burnett, American Thinker
A group of old-guard, “swamp” Republicans calling themselves the Climate Leadership Council (CLC) has joined climate alarmists, including failed Democratic Party presidential candidate Al Gore, in calling for a tax on carbon-dioxide emissions. CLC’s plan would begin with a carbon tax rate of $40 per ton, and promises a “rebate” of up to $2,000 for 70 percent of American families. That’s great – unless you are among the 30 percent who would pay more for energy under this scam. CLC is extremely pleased with this soak-the-rich, subsidize-the-poor scheme, but since when did Republicans become the party of class warfare? READ MORE

Icegate: Now NSIDC Caught Tampering With Climate Records


Breitbart Reports: This chart, comparing the satellite temperature records with Schmidt’s adjusted version, gives you an idea of the scale of the climate fraud being committed by NASA GISS.

 

Water Vapor Confirmed as Major Player in Climate Change

Still from animation showing global distribution of atmospheric water vapor The distribution of atmospheric water vapor, a significant greenhouse gas, varies across the globe. During the summer and fall of 2005, this visualization shows that most vapor collects at tropical latitudes, particularly over south Asia, where monsoon thunderstorms swept the gas some 2 miles above the land. 

Water vapor is known to be Earth’s most abundant greenhouse gas, but the extent of its contribution to global warming has been debated. Using recent NASA satellite data, researchers have estimated more precisely than ever the heat-trapping effect of water in the air, validating the role of the gas as a critical component of climate change.

Andrew Dessler and colleagues from Texas A&M University in College Station confirmed that the heat-amplifying effect of water vapor is potent enough to double the climate warming caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.. [Yet, we haven't seen significant atmospheric temperature increases unless the data was 'massaged' by NOAA and others.. Why is that you suppose? Perhaps because water vapor heat entrapment destroys the case against anthropological CO2 warming, eh? - ED} .MORE

 


Testimony: John R. Christy Addresses NOAA’s
Temperature Manipulation


This testimony by Dr. John R. Christy, delivered on February 2, 2016, before the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology, is a fascinating overview of the latest real science regarding climate change. Dr. Christy demolishes claims that scientists know enough about how the climate works to understand the human impact or predict future climate conditions. The testimony also includes an “extract” of his previous testimony showing man-made climate change is not causing a rise in extreme weather.  READ MORE

 

 


H. Sterling Burnett, Climate Change Weekly
A study conducted by a team of researchers including the well-known Michael Mann, creator of the “hockey stick” graph, debunks NOAA’s claim that the pause in warming temperatures never happened. This noteworthy admission by Mann et al. supports the global data that show a 15- to 18-year hiatus in rising temperatures.  READ MORE




300 Scientists Request Explanation for Temperature Shenanigans
H. Sterling Burnett, Climate Change Weekly

In support of U.S. House Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith’s investigation of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), approximately 300 scientists, engineers, economists, and other experts sent a letter requesting an explanation for what appears to be manipulated temperature data. The letter challenges NOAA’s findings that eliminated the 18-year “pause” in global temperature increase and demands the agency reveal its data and methodology for public examination. READ MORE

 


Joseph L. Bast, Somewhat Reasonable



Why would Michael Mann and Naomi Oreskes, two prominent (and almost ridiculously alarmist) academics in the global warming debate, devote hours to writing letters to the editor to a small (circ. 10,000) newspaper in northern Wisconsin? Maybe to avoid peer-review and editors who recognize libel when they see it. Mann and Oreskes recently repeated every lie and half-truth about The Heartland Institute spread on the Internet (often with their help) in a letter to the Lakewood Times, and Heartland President Joseph Bast set the record straight in his reply, posted online at the newspaper as well as on Heartland’s blog, SomewhatReasonable.

NOAA Fiddles With Climate Data To Erase The 15-Year Global Warming ‘Hiatus’

The U.S. Climate Action Network is a tax-exempt climate activist coordination center incorporated in Washington, D.C. The organization's mission is to help design and develop an effective global strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and ensure its implementation at international, national and local levels. The group also works to silence and bully anyone who diverges from climate alarmist dogma. Heartland’s Emily Zanotti and Ron Arnold document the organization’s history, funding, and controversies with a new profile posted at LeftExposed.org.  READ MORE

 

More About Al Gore: “Merchants of Smear” Released
Russell Cook, The Heartland Institute



Global warming’s true believers claim the science behind human-caused global warming is settled and anyone who disagrees with them is paid by the evil fossil fuel industry to manufacture doubt about the issue. Where did this false and libelous claim come from? Why, Al Gore, of course. Heartland Policy Advisor Russell Cook has written a detailed expose of Gore’s involvement in spreading the most potent lie behind a political movement known for its disregard for the truth. READ MORE

 

 

Dark Money Funds Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project

James M. Taylor, The Heartland Institute
Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project is promoting dark money to spread alarmist global warming propaganda. In a mass email sent on December 30, Climate Reality Project President Ken Berlin proudly announced an anonymous donor would match all donations to the organization through the end of the year. Global warming alarmists raise and spend far more money – including far more untraceable special-interest “dark money” – than do global warming skeptics. READ MORE
