Monckton & Soon: Clinton, Gore and U.N., Profiteers of Doom, vs. Donald Trump, Prophet of Freedom

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.…

Morano goes to EU! To premiere ‘Climate Hustle’ film at EU Parliament on Oct. 19 in Brussels!

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 …

Fact checking Al Gore’s first climate rally in hurricane-ravaged Florida

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.

They came to talk about climate. They really talked about … climate. What if the 2016 race had been about policy?

“Take it from me it was a very close election,” Gore said. That prompted some to cheer “You won.” He didn’t. Gore lost his home state of Tennessee, too, plus a host of other traditionally blue states.

This is the first time Gore has come out to rally during #Election 2016, and sources close to Clinton’s campaign said he would only do it if he could focus on the so-called “climate crisis.” He sat out the convention and gave a tepid endorsement of Clinton on Twitter.

Treating the truth like taffy

Gore said there has been a three-inch sea level rise since 1992 when Hurricane Andrew struck Florida. But tidal gauges and satellite altimeters show only a sea level rise of 1.2 mm per year. That would be about 28 mm since 1992, or 1.1 inches. He was off nearly 300 percent.

Gore also brought up the unique phenomenon in Miami that allow “fish from the ocean to swim on the streets of Miami-Dade and Delray, Ft. Lauderdale.” But that assertion has no basis in fact, wrote the Miami Herald when President Obama made the same claim.

Miami Is Sinking, Sea Level

Clinton & Gore blame hurricanes, extreme weather on ‘global warming’

Clinton: ‘Hurricane Matthew Was Likely More Destructive Because of Climate Change’

( – Of all the problems facing this nation, climate change is at the top, Democrat Hillary Clinton told a campaign rally in Miami, Florida on Tuesday.

“And I will tell you this — it is one of the most important issues at stake in this election,” she said.

Appearing with climate change activisit Al Gore — her husband’s vice president — Clinton capitalized on Florida’s recent brush with Hurricane Matthew, saying the storm was “likely more destructive because of climate change.”

She painted a doom-and-gloom scenario of rising oceans, Zika-spreading mosquitoes, and a rise in asthma and allergy cases due to longer pollen seasons.

“Look at it this way,” Clinton said. “Our next president will either step up our efforts to address climate change to protect our planet, to protect our health, and to create good jobs that cannot be outsourced, by growing our clean energy economy — or, in the alternative, we will be dragged backwards, and our whole future will be put at risk. So we’ve really got to get this right.

“And if you need additional convincing, just remember what happened this week. Hurricane Matthew killed at least 26 people in our country, more than 1,000 as far as we know right now in Haiti. North Carolina is still dealing with serious flooding…Now some will say, we’ve always had hurricanes. They’ve always been destructive. And that’s true.

“But Hurricane Matthew was likely more destructive because of climate change. Right now, the ocean is at or near record high temperatures, and that contributed to the torrential rainfall and the flash flooding that we saw in the Carolinas. Sea levels have already risen about a foot — one foot — in much of the Southeast, which means that Matthew’s storm surge was higher and the flooding was more severe.

“Plus, as you know, the impact of climate change goes beyond extreme events like hurricanes. It’s become a daily reality here in Miami.” Clinton noted that streets in Miami Beach are now flooding at high tide. “The ocean is bubbling up through the sewer

Hillary Clinton: ‘Hurricane Matthew was likely more destructive because of climate change’

 With Al Gore by her side, Hillary Clinton channeled climate change alarmism into her speech in Florida, by blaming Hurricane Matthew on global warming.

“Hurricane Matthew was likely more destructive because of climate change right now,” she said, citing “record high” ocean temperatures.

She insisted that climate change “contributed” to the torrential rainfall and the flash flooding in North and South Carolina.

“Sea levels have risen one foot in much of the Southeast which means Matthew’s storm surge was higher and the flooding more severe,” she said ominously.

It didn’t stop there.

Clinton and Gore teamed up to warn that most of the destructive natural disasters in the past decade were a result of climate change.

Global warming, Gore said, was creating the energy that was “equivalent to what would be released by 400,000 Hiroshima class atomic bombs going off every day.”

Zika and Lyme disease were more threatening because summers lasted longer, they argued, allowing ticks and mosquitoes to live longer.

“Every single night on the television news is like a major hike through the Book of Revelation,” Gore said. “You look at the floods and the droughts and the mudslides and the fires and the incredible downpours…”

Longer summers made it worse for children who suffered from allergies and asthma, Clinton said, and also caused more wildfires.

Gore urged Floridians to vote for Hillary Clinton, because she would take climate change seriously.

“Mother Nature is giving us a very clear and powerful message,” he said. “We cannot continue putting 110 million tons of global warming pollution into the atmosphere every day as if it’s an open sewer. We’ve got to stop that.”

NYT: Emerging Climate Accord Could Push A/C Out of Sweltering India’s Reach


DELHI — A thrill goes down Lane 12, C Block, Kamalpur every time another working-class family brings home its first air-conditioner. Switched on for a few hours, usually to cool a room where the whole family sleeps, it transforms life in this suffocating concrete labyrinth where the heat reached 117 degrees in May.
“You wake up totally fresh,” exulted Kaushilya Devi, a housewife, whose husband bought a unit in May. “I wouldn’t say we are middle class,” she said. “But we are closer.”
But 3,700 miles away, in Kigali, Rwanda, negotiators from more than 170 countries gathered this week to complete an accord that would phase out the use of heat-trapping hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, worldwide, and with them the cheapest air-conditioners that are just coming within reach of people like Ms. Devi. Millions of Indians might mark the transition from poverty with the purchase of their first air-conditioner, but as those purchases ease suffering in one of the planet’s hottest countries, they are contributing profoundly to the heating of the planet.
HFCs function as a sort of supergreenhouse gas, with 1,000 times the heat-trapping potency of carbon dioxide. While they account for just a small percentage of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, scientists say a surge in the use of HFC-fueled air-conditioners would alone contribute to nearly a full degree Fahrenheit of atmospheric warming over the coming century — in an environment where just three degrees of warming could be enough to tip the planet into an irreversible future of rising sea levels, more powerful storms and deluges, extreme drought, food shortages and other devastating impacts.

Between 6 and 9 percent of Indian households use air-conditioning, and the purchase of a first unit — not a second or a third — is driving growth, said Ajay Mathur, the director general of the Energy and Resources Institute in New Delhi. Every time government salaries are raised, he said, air-conditioner purchases surge, as civil servants gain confidence that they will be able to pay higher electric bills.
“It is me of 10 years ago. It is many of my younger colleagues,” Mr. Mathur said. “It is my driver, who after 20 years working for me, bought his first air-conditioner. It is a marker of social mobility.”

A fast phaseout comes with big wins for the United States, since many of the replacement …

Podesta Said He Wanted Cecil the Lion Killer Extradited, Jailed

Lobbied former NYT reporter to write op-ed in favor of sending shooter back to Zimbabwe

John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, wrote that the man who killed Cecil the Lion should be extradited to Zimbabwe and jailed, according to hacked emails posted online on Tuesday.

In an August 1, 2015 email to former New York Timesreporter Barry Bearak, Podesta suggested that Bearak write a column calling for Cecil the Lion’s killer to be sent back to Zimbabwe to face local authorities.

Bearak had conducted award-winning international reporting for the Times. Bearak also spent time in a Zimbabwean prison while covering the country’s 2008 elections and the resulting backlash against opposition forces by brutal leader Robert Mugabe.

Podesta said that experience made him the perfect person to write about Cecil the Lion.

“As the only person anyone knows who has spent time in a Zimbabwe jail, you should pen an oped calling for his killer’s extradition,” he wrote to Bearak.

“What an asshole,” Podesta continued.…
