Flagship Daily DIE WELT Stuns Germany: ‘Scientists Warn Of Ice Age’, Cites New Peer-Reviewed Russian Study
Excerpt:Kulke writes that recently a growing number of scientific publications have been appearing in leading journals, and that they have been challenging the simplistic “one dimensional CO2 explanation” for climate change and showing that even the unlikely “doubling of atmospheric CO2 concentration by 2050 would not have dramatic effects.”
Yet, papers with such content, even though they have passed the peer-review process, do not make any headlines. But they have been becoming much more frequent recently.”
Increasingly it seems more and more scientists are now seeing huge opportunity in overturning one of the most ballyhooed scientific hypotheses of modern time, funding be damned.…

Report: BIG GREEN: The WWF has four times more money to spend than ‘Big Oil’ American Petroleum Institute
Excerpt: A comparison done by American University professor Matthew Nisbet shows that the revenues generated by the American Petroleum Institute (API), the largest U.S trade association for the oil and natural gas industry, pale in comparison with such organizations as Greenpeace and the WWF.
In 2011 the World Wildlife Federation Network generated US$800 million, four times more than the API ($203 million). Greenpeace also clearly beat the API with revenues almost the double:
Even more relevant are the figures reported for Greenpeace Worldwide, which according to the annual report represents the combined budget of Greenpeace International and its affiliated national and regional organizations. In this case, Greenpeace brought in global revenues of €241 million (US$336 million) and spent approximately €159 million on program activities (US$221 million) and €77 million on fundraising (US$107 million) across countries.-
Greenpeace global revenue also compares well to that of major U.S. industry associations which we commonly think of as having inconceivably large budgets. Consider that in 2009, the American Petroleum Institute generated $203 million in revenue and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce $214 million in revenue from its industry members.…
Flashback: Bill Clinton Rebukes Gore, Slams Carbon Tax: ‘Helps the Bond Markets and Hurts the People’
Gore’s first attempt to push through a carbon tax was shut down by Clinton who saw through Gore’s protestations of saving the earth. Recognising that it would mean a truly epic transfer of wealth from the working population to the investment banks and Wall Street, Clinton told Gore to stick his British Thermal Unit and sent him packing.
David Brower, the grand old man of American environmentalism himself bitterly concluded that the Clinton / Gore adminstration “has done more to harm the environment and to weaken environmental regulations in three years than Presidents Bush and Reagan did in 12 years”.
