Journos blame global warming for Perth’s abundance of rain

South West WA and Perth have been the Australian posterchild for Water-Panic for years.

We were destined to be an abandoned ghost town with worthless property:

Perth is set to become the world’s first ‘Ghost City’ according to a long-term weather forecaster and a news anchor.

“I’m reading here that unless drastic action is taken, Perth could become the world’s first ghost city – a modern metropolis abandoned by the 1.7 million people there for lack of water,” she said.

R.I.P. Greenhouse Gas Theory: 1980-2018

Hansen’s 1988 testimony

Fresh analysis of government scientific records reveals the idea of ‘long-settled’ science in the greenhouse gas theory is a myth. The idea human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) acts as a control knob on climate only appeared in consensus science since the 1980s. Prior to that time, official records show the theory as “abandoned.”

Famously, on June 24, 1988, the whole world first heard about the dreaded “greenhouse effect” (GHE) from NASA’s  new champion of the theory, James Hansen. Hansen had breathed life into an old and “abandoned” theory drawing from new space research into Venus and Mars. Thanks to Hansen’s role, climate fear prevailed for a generation.

Blue State Policies Leaving Taxpayers Poorer

You’ve got to admire the full frontal audacity of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio, and their union and pressure group comrades in arms. Their hypocrisy, fraud, and tyranny are boundless, especially on fiscal, energy and climate change issues.

Amid the seventh year of a “New York is open for business” advertising campaign that has spent $354 million thus far, they are presiding over tax and regulatory regimes, mountains of debt, intransigent public sector unions, anti-nuclear, anti-fossil fuel energy policies that are anything but business-friendly – and press conferences that promise more of the same for state businesses, taxpayers, and pensioners.

Green Energy Revolution A Flop: Fossil Fuel Share Of Total Energy Use Unchanged in 40 Years

The green energy revolution of the past 30 years has resulted in practically nothing. It’s been a flop. Fossil fuels remain as wildly popular as ever. In the 1970s, the big worry was that fossil fuels would soon run out, and so we should “use them wisely.” But in the 1980s, the risk changed to one of an overheating planet, and so we should not use them at all. —P Gosselin, No Tricks Zone, 12 January 2018

Cuadrilla’s controversial bid to frack for shale gas in Lancashire has struck a rare gush of good luck after tests unearthed “excellent” conditions for fracking. The tests also suggest a high natural gas content in the core samples, Cuadrilla said. —Jillian Ambrose, The Daily Telegraph, 13 January 2018

Bad Weather Is No Reason for Climate Alarm

Two weeks ago, President Donald Trump greeted the cold snap that was gripping much of the U.S. by tweeting, “Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming.” He was criticized for confusing weather with climate. But he’s hardly alone in making this mistake, as we have seen in coverage of the most destructive weather-related events of 2017.

New Study Stomps On Alarmists’ Claims That Global Warming Worsens Winters

The recent cold snap was “highly unusual in the current climate,” and not the product of man-made global warming, a new study found.

But wait, other scientists said the two-weeks of frigid weather and snow in the eastern U.S. was “very much consistent with our expectations of the response of weather dynamics to human-caused climate change.”

Climate skeptics have valid reasons to question man-made warming

Many people are actively worried about global warming. And it frustrates them that skeptics and “deniers” refuse to acknowledge the “science” of such an urgent, man-made problem.

But there may be valid reasons to dispute the theory that man is responsible for climate change. And to demonstrate why the issue isn’t so clearcut here’s a basic climate question to ponder:

As the level of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere increases, does its ability to absorb heat increase, decrease, or remain the same?

Earth doomed! Hawking offers to pay deniers fares to Venus

Forget 2 degrees of warming, Hawking says “460″!

Oh, look, there goes another attention-seeking celebrity scientist — flaming out –watch the arc:

In the second episode of his new series “Stephen Hawking’s Favorite Places,” the British physicist warns Earth could soon become as hot as Venus if action to halt climate change is not taken immediately.

Woman Blames A Rachel Maddow And Booze Cocktail For Threatening Scott Pruitt

Federal agents opened an investigation into a woman who claimed the ramblings of a liberal talk show host and a belly full of beer prompted her to threaten EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt on social media.

An Arkansas resident wrote “a threatening post” on Twitter last April against Pruitt, according to a report Friday from E&E News. EPA and FBI agents in Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas began a probe shortly after the comments went public.
