By Jean Chemnick, E&E News reporter President Trump will spend much of his first foreign trip surrounded by U.S. allies who prize the Paris climate agreement and will use every opportunity to convince him to stay in it. Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, French President Emmanuel Macron, leaders of the European Union and others have already signaled their intent to raise the accord at bilateral meetings with Trump next week. The Group of Seven's Italian presidency is searching for a way to recognize the deal at the May 27 leader-level summit despite Trump's lack of a position. "In the bilateral ahead of...
By Matt McGrathEnvironment correspondent, Bonn Fiji's Prime Minister has issued a coded warning to Donald Trump about the dangers of climate change. The US leader is due to decide on future US participation in the Paris climate agreement after next week's G7 meeting in Italy. But Frank Bainimarama told delegates here that whether you lived in Miami or New York, you wouldn't be able to escape the rising seas. Fiji will lead the next key UN climate talks later this year. This normally low-profile May meeting of UN delegates has been overshadowed to an extent by the ongoing question of future US involvement in...

Now, that’s different that what...

"In the election campaign, he even said it was a Chinese invention to criticize America," Argentine Bishop Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo told Italian wire service ANSA. "But this president has already changed about several things, so perhaps on this as well." Pope Francis dedicated his Laudato Si encyclical to climate change and called it "a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation." Trump, a climate doubter, has criticized the...

In the above video liberal climate “expert” Bill Maher provides an example as to what average liberals rely on for their climate change education. Average liberals don’t take the time to actually learn the science, they rely upon scientific “experts” like Bill Nye , Al Gore , Michael Mann , late night comedians like Bill Maher, and Oscar the Grouch .

By Dr. Lubos Motl Richard Lindzen's talk in Prague Richard Lindzen, prof emeritus at MIT, is the most famous atmospheric physicist among the climate skeptics. I know him from Greater Boston, and because he spends several months in every year in Paris, I have convinced him that Czechia (Prague but even Pilsen) is worth seeing. Václav Klaus, whose new book about the climate was coincidentally published these days, was moderating Lindzen's lecture in the Autoclub of the Czech Republic, which was the main "business part" of his trip to our land. He was lecturing in a relaxed atmosphere (he kindly offers the...

Last Sunday voters in Germany’s most populous state, North Rhine Wesphalia (NRW), sent a loud message: voters are much more concerned about problems other than climate protection and green energies. The state’s ruling SPD Socialists/Green Party coalition government led by Hannelore Kraft took an historic beating, getting tossed out as the state swung far – from the left to the right.
