Cap And Don’t Trade: Obama May Set Off Trade War With Climate Policy
As anyone who followed the Kyoto Protocols back in the 1990s can tell you, even if you believe that government action to stem carbon emissions would be desirable, Kyoto wasn’t a genuine effort to get a worldwide agreement on limiting emissions: it exempted seven of the world’s eight most populous nations (the U.S. being the lone exception) from its provisions, including rapidly growing economies like | Read More »
Climate “Researchers” Discover That Antarctica Is Cold
Behind the “Contributors” curtain at RedState, we often toss things we’ve found over to others who may be more qualified to use them. For example, your humble correspondent found that Pravda story about Hillary(TM) meaning four years of war – and tossed it over to Moe since he is the master of snark. Yesterday, Josh (Painter) found a new piece on “global warming” and tossed | Read More »
An Inconvenient Poll
Bad news for Nobel laureate Al Gore and his not-too-merry band of tree huggers.

I’m watching the History Channel as I blog and comment, and the channel is presenting various ways in which human beings might go extinct or the world might end. I wait and wonder why I’m not seeing Anthroprogenic Global Warming/Climate Change. The reason is that it’s their “Number One Threat” to human survival, and so saved for last. And here they start talking about how | Read More »
AGW Lunacy, Christmas Edition
Scientists warn Christmas lights harm the planet “For a zero-emission Christmas light show, you may consider using solar powered lights or sourcing your electricity from verified green power suppliers.” Just out of curiosity, does internet porn contribute to Global Warming? I haven’t seen that research, but Christmas is seasonal, whereas internet porn is a 24/7/365 enterprise. OTOH, $15 billion per year of government research may | Read More »
AGW: Making Up the “Science” as We Go Along?
Do you ever get the feeling that the proponents of Anthropogenic Global Warming are just winging it? The mildest conclusion I can draw from the following sequence of news reports is that there is a heck of a lot of science that remains to be done on the subject of global warming, the carbon cycle, and the complex interactions between the atmosphere, the oceans and | Read More »

So Where Do The Cap And Trade Taxes Go ?
You probably were thinking all the money raised for the phony hoax of AGW were going to be used to save the planet? Well they aren’t saying so, but you may be able to figure out by observing what happened with the tobacco settlement money. You do remember all the promises about that settlement, don’t you? The money was to be used for prevention and | Read More »
Anthropogenic Climate Change – NOT
The following website explanes how the hoax has been foisted upon us. It’s a long read, but well worth it. http://www.middlebury.net/op-ed/global-warming-01.html In all the verbiage, and links, it is pretty well explained that it is highly unlikely that man generated CO2 is causing climate change. Hence providing proof that our little Ms. Palin is smarter than the stuffy old codger who chose to question her | Read More »
An Update on Global Warming
Given the non-stop barrage of Obama/McCain leading into the conventions the topic of Anthropogenic Global Warming has slipped off the radar screen for pretty much everyone. This is certainly true for the MSM; caught in the throes of a leg tingling big “O”, they can barely stop their panting long enough to remind the public that we are all going to die –soon- from man | Read More »
