More Winning! Trump’s EPA Continues ‘Cleansing’ Website Of Obama-Era Climate Buzzwords

Look, Watson, I’ve found changes! Notify Obama and tell him the game is afoot!

The EPA deleted several mentions of “climate change” from a website created to help the trucking industry fight global warming, according to a report Friday from a ‘watchdog’ group.

EPA’s SmartWay website dropped the terms “climate change” and “greenhouse gas emissions” from a paragraph describing the environmental effects of freight transport. The changes took place between April 5 and May 30, academics with the Environmental Data and Governance Initiative (EDGI) reported.

UN Admits It Can’t Link Global Warming To Spike In World Hunger, Does It Anyway

A United Nations report admits it’s “impossible” to link man-made global warming to a jump in world hunger statistics, but then goes ahead and does make that link anyway.

The new U.N. report estimated global warming helped increase the number of people around the world suffering from chronic hunger and undernourishment, which was mainly driven by violent conflicts in poor countries.

Germany’s $800 Billion Merkel-Made Climate Policy Disaster

By 2030, the eastern German town of Poedelwitz will likely be razed to get at the rich veins of coal beneath its half-timbered houses. The reason: Chancellor Angela Merkel’s effort to steer Germany toward greener energy, which has unexpectedly meant booming demand for dirty coal. While Merkel aims to wean the country from nuclear power and boost renewable energy, the shift has been slow. Germany’s 140-plus coal-fired plants last year supplied 40 percent of the country’s electricity. Bloomberg, 21 September 2017

Climate scientist rebuts Hollywood hurricane hype: ‘This is what weather looks like’

Photo Texas Military Dept‏Sparring with celebrities and Al Gore over global warming may not be what Roy Spencer had in mind when he earned his Ph.D., but it’s certainly become a bustling sideline for the University of Alabama in Huntsville climatologist.

A month after rebutting Mr. Gore’s documentary “An Inconvenient Sequel,” Mr. Spencer has published another short e-book, this one challenging statements by Jennifer Lawrence, Bill Nye, Stevie Wonder and others linking global warming to this year’s active hurricane season.

German ARD Meteorologist: ‘Can’t Blame Climate Change’ For This Year’s Hurricanes…’Many Factors’

Stefan Rahmstorf

Last Tuesday morning German flagship ARD public television meteorologist Donald Bäcker surprised some climate-realist viewers here with a very level-headed look at the factors behind hurricane development.

I use the word “surprise” here because the massive German public media systems are generally devout warmists and vigilant gatekeepers against skeptic views. Open discussion here means discussion only among adherents and the like-minded. Anyone with a dissident view usually is branded and excluded.

DiCaprio Gives Career-Best Performance As Whiny Green Activist Spurned By Trump

DiCaprio at climate march.Leonardo DiCaprio delivered a career-best performance on Tuesday in the role of ‘Whiny, Entitled, Millionaire Movie Star Who Can’t Accept That The President Won’t Take His Views On Climate Change Seriously.’

DiCaprio was speaking at the Yale Climate Conference, where he took to the podium to rehearse the usual litany of junk science claims made by alarmists to justify their $1.5 trillion a year Enron-style scam.

The 11-Year Major Hurricane Drought: Much More Unusual than Two Cat 4 Strikes

Weather.com published an article noting that the two Cat-4 hurricane strikes this year (Harvey and Irma) is a new record. Here’s a nice graphic they used showing both storms at landfall.

Left: Hurricane Harvey makes landfall near Rockport, Texas, on Aug. 25, 2017. |  Right: Hurricane Irma makes its first landfall at Cudjoe Key, Florida, on Sept. 10, 2017 (graphic: Weather.com).

But the statistics of rare events (like hurricanes) are not very well behaved. Let’s look at this new record and compare it to the 11-year-plus period of no major hurricane strikes that ended when Harvey struck Texas.

Global Warming: Who Are The Deniers Now?

Global warming is “settled science,” we hear all the time. Those who reject that idea are “deniers.” But as new evidence trickles out from peer-reviewed scientific studies, the legs beneath the climate change hypothesis — that the Earth was doing just fine until carbon dioxide-spewing human beings came along — is increasingly wobbly.

A new study published in the journal Nature Geoscience purports to support action by global governments to reduce carbon dioxide output in order to lower potential global warming over the next 100 years or so. But what it really does is undercut virtually every modern argument for taking radical action against warming.

Yet Another Hole Punched in the So-Called ‘Settled’ Climate Change Theory

Figure 1.) Recent widespread sub-glacial volcanic eruptions have acted to pulse massive amounts of geologically induced high heat flow onto the base of Iceland’s major glaciers. This has significantly reduced the thickness and extent of these glaciers and in many cases punched holes up through the glaciers to the surface as imaged above (“Giant Holes in Iceland’s Largest Glacier Expose Ground for First Time”, and “Volcanic Activity Causing East Antarctica’s Mysterious Glacial Crater”).

Yet another in a rapid-fire series of huge scientific holes has been punched in the so-called settled climate change theory.

Just released research by the well-respected Desert Research Institute (DRI) concludes that sub-glacial West Antarctic geologically induced heat flow, not atmospheric global warming, was responsible for anomalous warming which acted to end a major Southern Hemispheric Ice Age. This is game-changing climate science news for many reasons.

Hurricane illusions – and inconvenient realities

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma brought out the best in us. Millions of Americans are giving money, toil and sweat to help victims rebuild. Unfortunately, the storms also highlighted some people’s baser instincts.

Some advanced ideological commitments to campaigns to “keep fossil fuels in the ground,” raise energy costs and reduce living standards. Others hyped Harvey’s record rainfalls, claiming carbon dioxide emissions made the Gulf of Mexico warmer and its air more moisture-laden. A few were just obnoxious.
