Review: Climate Hustle is a smart, energetic global warming documentary – ‘The film lays waste to Gore’s thoroughly debunked ‘An Inconvenient Truth.’
At one point in our storied history, Morano shows how bad weather, disease, famine and the Little Ice Age all converged, giving rise to the era of witch trials. In that era, witches were considered the greatest threat facing the planet. And those skeptical of the link between weather and witchcraft were quickly accused of sorcery to squelch any debate.
In one of the more illustrative, subversive scenes, the film lays waste to Al Gore’s thoroughly debunked movie ‘An Inconvenient Truth.’ Using the fabled scissor lift, Morano replicates that well-known scene that raises Gore up in front of a geological graph that shows an unimaginable temperature increase in the last century. Morano reveals what Al Gore chose not to say: that increased CO2 levels occurred up to 800 years after temperatures increases, not before.
And when the geological graph extends further into time, you see that the Earth is in a CO2 famine, and the mythical hockey stick rise in temperatures of the last 150 years isn’t that unprecedented after all. Morano also shows what climate variables Gore conveniently left out: the sun, volcanic emissions and aerosols, cosmic rays, tilt of Earth’s axis, atmospheric circulation, water vapor, methane from animals and agriculture, clouds, the Albedo effect, forests, land usage, soil, oceans, just to name a few.…
Bjorn Lomborg on UN climate deal: ‘This is likely to be among most expensive treaties in the history of the world’
Bjorn Lomborg, the Danish author, environmentalist, and professor of political science and philosophy, says “Politicians will vaunt U.N. treaty, but its costs far outweigh its meager benefits.” In an op-ed today for USA Today, entitled “Climate change is real, but Paris treaty won’t fix it,” Dr. Lomborg writes:
The Paris accord talks a big game. It doesn’t just commit to capping the global temperature increase at 2 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels. The text goes even further and says the world’s leaders commit to keeping the increase “well below 2 degrees Celsius” and will try to cap it at 1.5 degrees Celsius.
But this is just rhetoric. My own research and the only peer-reviewed published assessment of the Paris agreement used the United Nation’s favorite climate model to measure the impact of every nation fulfilling every major carbon-cutting promise in the treaty between now and 2030. I found that the total temperature reduction will be just 0.086 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100.
Not 6 degrees. Not 4 degrees. Not 2 degrees. Not even 1 degree. Only 0.086 degrees. That’s 86 thousandths of a degree! That’s certainly worth the trillions of dollars the UN globalists want to spend, right? It is if you understand Figueres, Edenhofer, and others who have admitted their plan is to restructure, reconfigure, transform, and redistribute — it “has almost nothing to do with the environmental policy.”
Lomborg, whose 2001 book The Skeptical Environmentalist is still causing waves, writes in his Earth Day op-ed: “Even if these promises were extended for 70 more years, then all the promises will reduce temperature rises by 0.3 degrees Fahrenheit by 2100. This is similar to a finding by scientists at MIT. It’s feeble.”
Worse than feeble — and mind-bogglingly costly to boot. “This is likely to be among most expensive treaties in the history of the world,” says Lomborg. “U.S. promises alone — to cut greenhouse gas emissions 26%-28% below 2005 levels by 2025 — would reduce gross domestic product more than $150 billion annually.”
“Trying to cut carbon dioxide, even with an efficient carbon tax, will make cheap energy more expensive — and this will slow economic growth,” he notes. “Green technology is still very inefficient (which is why it still requires significant subsidies).”

Weather Channel Founder: It’s all Politics, not Science
Not surprisingly, the establishment corporate media have provided full-throated support for the Earth Day extravaganza at the UN. That’s par for the course; they have been marching in lock-step on this issue, as shills for the globalist agenda, for years now. The USA Todayeditorial board, for example, ran a ridiculous editorial screed today, entitled “The heat is on: Our view,” that recycles the usual myths, fabrications, exaggerations, and lies from the Al Gore grab-bag of scary (but imaginary) climate “threats.” “Friday is Earth Day, and the planet is running a fever,” they begin, flogging a shopworn metaphor that has been thoroughly discredited. Can the esteemed editors atUSA Today be completely unaware that even many of the top global warming alarmists — such as James Hansen, Phil Jones, the U.K. Met Office, The Economist, Washington Post, New York Times, New Republic, and even the UN’s own Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) — have been forced to admit — by the global satellite date — that global surface temperatures have not risen measurably in 20 years?
To their credit, the USA Today editors have provided space today for two dissenting experts to present contrarian views on the Paris climate accord and the political spectacle at the UN. Meteorologist John Coleman, founder of the Weather Channel, penned a brief op-ed entitled “Get politics out of climate debate: Science has taken a back seat at the United Nations.” Coleman, who has spent more than 60 years as a meteorologist, is an outspoken critic of anthropogenic (manmade) global warming, or AGW, which he has famously called “the greatest scam in history.”
Coleman points to UN climate chief Christiana Figueres’ statements calling for a “centralized transformation” that is “going to make the life of everyone on the planet very different” to combat the alleged global warming threat. And Coleman asks, “How many Americans are looking forward to the U.N. transforming their lives?”
He quotes another top UN IPCC official, Dr. Ottmar Edenhofer, who admits that it is the UN’s policy to “redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” And, as we have reported (here and here), Dr. Edenhofer has further admitted that all the panic over climate “has almost nothing to do with environmental policy”; it’s all about redistributing the world’s wealth. And guess who …
The new study is published in the journal Nature Climate Change by a team of 32 authors from 24 institutions in eight countries.
Carbon dioxide emissions from industrial society have driven a huge growth in trees and other plants.
A new study says that if the extra green leaves prompted by rising CO2 levels were laid in a carpet, it would cover twice the continental USA.
Climate sceptics argue the findings show that the extra CO2 is actually benefiting the planet.
But the researchers say the fertilisation effect diminishes over time.
They warn the positives of CO2 are likely to be outweighed by the negatives.
The authors note that the beneficial aspect of CO2 fertilisation have previously been cited by contrarians to argue that carbon emissions need not be reduced.
Co-author Dr Philippe Ciais, from the Laboratory of Climate and Environmental Sciences in Gif-sur‑Yvette, France (also an IPCC author), said: “The fallacy of the contrarian argument is two-fold. First, the many negative aspects of climate change are not acknowledged.
“Second, studies have shown that plants acclimatise to rising CO2 concentration and the fertilisation effect diminishes over time.” Future growth is also limited by other factors, such as lack of water or nutrients.
The scientists say several factors play a part in the plant boom, including climate change (8%), more nitrogen in the environment (9%), and shifts in land management (4%).
But the main factor, they say, is plants using extra CO2 from human society to fertilise their growth (70%).
Harnessing energy from the sun, green leaves grow by using CO2, water, and nutrients from soil.…
