First, the rate of global warming has not been accelerating. In fact, it is little more than half of what the UN had predicted in 1990, even though, despite the squandering of hundreds of billions on the climate scam, CO2 emissions are rising faster than predicted.
Secondly, Hurricane Matthew was no worse for global warming. Until it struck the U.S. coast, no hurricane of category 3 or more had made landfall for 4001 days – the longest period without a major hurricane landfall in the U.S. since records began almost 150 years ago. Warmer weather reduces the temperature differentials that drive storms, making severe hurricanes less likely.
Thirdly, sea level, which Gore and Clinton said was a big issue for Florida’s coastline, has not been accelerating, though the south-eastern seaboard of the U.S. has been subsiding.
Fourthly, there is no “consensus”. Two of us were co-authors of a paper printed last year that examined 11,944 peer-reviewed papers on climate and related subject published in the learned journals over the 21 years 1991-2001. Just 41 papers – 0.3 percent of the sample – went as far as to say that what little global warming there has been in recent decades was mostly manmade.
In 2007, one of us ran ads in major daily papers throughout the U.S. challenging Al Gore to a debate about global warming. He was too terrified to accept. In 2009, one of us asked him how much global warming would be prevented if the U.S. stopped emitting CO2 altogether. Gore could not answer: for the truth is that global temperature would barely change.
The cost of compliance with the Paris climate agreement has been estimated at $90 trillion over the next 14 years. Yet that monstrous sum – four times the entire federal debt – would not even reduce global temperature by a tenth of a degree.
Measures to tackle global warming that are inexpensive enough to be ineffective will be unaffordable. Measures that are expensive enough to be effective are unaffordable. And there is no climate crisis anyway. As a recent Pew survey showed, the global warming scam is now a vote-loser for its promoters. We, the people, are no longer fooled.…
Roger Helmer MEP to host screening of ‘Climate Hustle’
Published Oct 12, 2016
Roger Helmer MEP has organised a special screening of the highly-acclaimed film Climate Hustle. He said: “The film takes apart the case for ‘catastrophic global warming’ and exposes the lies, exaggerations and misinterpretations which underlie the new religion of ‘warmism’.”
The“Climate Hustle” film was created by Climate Depot, the US think-tank and advocacy group and Mr Helmer has arranged a screening of it in Brussels next week, Wednesday, October 19, at 3pm. The event will be open to visitors and anyone interested can pre-register at [email protected]. Those attending should should arrive an hour beforehand, to allow for the Parliament’s extensive registration and security procedures.
Roger Helmer said: “We have Marc Morano, perhaps the most prominent campaigner against climate alarmism, and a co-author of the film, attending the event. He will speak and take questions. If you ever thought 97 per cent of scientists back ‘warmism’, or that we’re about to cross a catastrophic tipping point, or that the human race will be reduced to a few thousand people scraping an existence at the South Pole, this film will reassure you.”

Memo Reveals Steyer’s WH Climate Influence – Proposed ‘extreme weather SWAT team’ to exploit natural disasters
Within weeks of John Podesta’s appointment as a top White House energy policy adviser, billionaire Democratic donor Tom Steyer, a board member of the think tank Podesta founded, was helping to steer White House climate policy, hacked documents reveal.
Democratic strategist and Steyer lieutenant Chris Lehane emailed Podesta a memo in January 2014 detailing a proposed structure for an overarching Obama administration climate policy plan that, he hoped, would both achieve policy gains and hurt Republicans at the ballot box.
According to Lehane, Steyer himself was also promoting the plan.
“TS may have sent you this doc last night — but believe he may have sent a slightly earlier draft so please use this one,” Lehane wrote to Podesta. “We hope this is helpful and stand ready to support whatever you may need.”
The email was one of thousands released by Wikileaks this week after hackers believed to be acting in concert with the Russian government breached Podesta’s email account, exposing details of the Hillary Clinton campaign chairman’s private conversations.
Lehane’s memo indicates that Podesta had asked for Steyer’s input shortly after he joined the White House as a counselor to the president in charge of energy and climate policy on Jan. 1, 2014.
“Thank you for asking us to share some ideas for a holistic approach to climate,” the memo began. “Per your direction, the goal is to unify policy, politics, and communications to help the Administration best execute an informed plan over a multi-year time period.”
Steyer and Podesta have worked together on climate issues for years. Podesta even recommendedin 2008, that Obama appoint Steyer, a board member of and donor to the Podesta-founded Center for American Progress, as his secretary of energy.
Before joining the White House, Podesta—with input from Lehane and radical environmental activist Bill McKibben—helped craft a political strategy that formed the basis for Steyer’s opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline.
When Podesta solicited his input on administration climate policy in early 2014, Steyer was ramping up a political operation, spearheaded by Super PAC NextGen Climate Action, that would eventually spend more than $77 million backing Democratic Senate and gubernatorial candidates.
Though the strategy in the Steyer-Lehane memo aimed to win policy victories, it was also deeply political and sought to use “wedge” issues to force Republicans into politically difficult positions on climate and energy …
Former Vice President Al Gore rallied yesterday with #Hillary Clinton to young Miami voters about #Climate Change, even as attendees seemed more engaged with their smartphones than the so-called risks from a global climate apocalypse. Clinton rope-a-doped Gore into hitting the campaign trail despite their decades-long ‘cold war.’ Clinton is hoping to scoop up Bernie Sanders’ supporters thinking of voting for Green party candidate Jill Stein but weary of Clinton’s climate creds.
Clinton knows that millennials are generally more worried about global warming, except anyone born after 1998 hasn’t experienced any statistical warming. Those who were too young to remember Gore’s 2000 run don’t recall the circumstances behind his failed presidential bid. Gore’s other goal was to give the mostly Miami Dade Collegecrowd a history lesson about losing an election by 500 votes because people voted for Ralph Nader.
