Following concerns that the so-called climate consensus was not reaching the public, a comprehensive opinion poll of 10,000 European citizens in 10 countries was conducted to establish levels of awareness, concern, and trust among different demographic groups and nationalities. The new poll shows that a majority (54%) of Europeans reject the claim that climate change is mainly or entirely caused by humans. The result of the poll reveals that despite decades of climate alarmism and green indoctrination the European public remains doggedly sceptical and unprejudiced – a result that confirms and strengthens the work of the GWPF and other European climate sceptics. —Global Warming Policy Forum, 12 July 2017
The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) recently published Greenland’s latest temperature measurements. The world’s biggest island registered -33° C earlier this month, the coldest July temperature ever recorded in the northern hemisphere (the previous record was -30.7° C). At the same time, ice cover is increasing nearly everywhere on Greenland. Singing from the same hymn sheet like a church choir, the news media recently reported about the Rhône Glacier shrinking by 10cm per day. No mention, however, about Greenland. Why? The evident ice growing and cooling phenomenon should not exist. It casts the central prophecy of a continuous and ultimately lethal global warming, for which we are ourselves to blame, into question. –Eugen Sorg, Baseler Zeitung, 11 July 2017
Most journalists and people working in the media are active or passive members of the green-socialist Climate Church and the new religion of the West’s post-Christian world. They act like all true believers: Acknowledging only the dogmas that match their belief system. Everything that contradicts their faith is ignored. –Eugen Sorg, Baseler Zeitung, 11 July 2017
June Sea Surface Temperatures (SSTs) are now available, and we can see ocean temps dropping further after a short pause and resuming the downward trajectory from the previous 12 months. Note that June 2017 matches closely to June 2015, with almost the same anomalies for NH, SH, and Global. We have seen lots of claims about the temperature records for 2016 and 2015 proving dangerous man-made warming. At least one senator stated that in a confirmation hearing. Yet HadSST3 data for the last two years shows how obvious is the ocean’s governing of global average temperatures. –Ron Clutz, Science Matters, 7 July 2017
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is in the early stages of launching a debate about climate change that could air on television – challenging scientists to prove the widespread view that global warming is a serious threat, the head of the agency said. “There are lots of questions that have not been asked and answered (about climate change),” EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt told Reuters in an interview late on Monday. “Who better to do that than a group of scientists… getting together and having a robust discussion for all the world to see,” he added without explaining how the scientists would be chosen. —Reuters, 11 July 2017
A new report from a U.K.-based think tank is taking aim at the use of carbon capture and sequestration (CCS), including how it is being used in Saskatchewan. Gordon Hughes, a former advisor to the World Bank and economics professor at the University of Edinburgh, wrote in a Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF) report that Saskatchewan’s use of CCS technology is “an object lesson in the uncertainties and difficulties of managing the installation of a new technology.” In a statement, the premier’s office said they will be taking a closer look at the report and says some of the facts contained within it are outdated. –D.C.

Without the U.S. in the game, all the biggest players are going to be increasing emissions, not decreasing them. In reality, the whole “global action on climate change” thing is completely dead. –Francis Menton, Manhattan Contrarian, 10 July 2017
