Sep 28, 2022 ~ Flashback Headline, March 20, 2000, The Independent: 'Snowfalls are now a thing of the past' [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Fake News]
Sep 22, 2022 ~ Flashback, #FakeNews @guardian in 2004, "Climate change over the next 20 years could result in a global catastrophe costing millions of lives in wars and natural disasters." @AlexEpstein shows how climate deaths have instead gone down over time. [Climate Change, Fake News]
Sep 17, 2022 ~ Bjorn Lomborg, The climate effect of our electric-car efforts in the 2020s will be trivial. If every country achieved its stated ambitious electric-vehicle targets by 2030, we'd slow down #globalwarming by 0.0002°F by the end of the century. [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Energy]
Sep 14, 2022 ~ Peter Thiel, "The climate debate ignores the reasons we burn fossil fuels in the first place. Alex Epstein reminds us that rich countries may be able to treat green lifestyles as luxury fashion, but for much of the world reliable energy is a matter of life and death." [Climate Change, Energy]
Sep 10, 2022 ~ Michael Shellenberger, "Scientists claimed the algae bloom in the San Francisco Bay, which killed over 10k fish, was due to climate change. But it's now clear that it is due to the failure of local governments to upgrade the region's antiquated sewage treatment plants." More climate change alarmism #FakeNews [Climate Change, Fake News]
Sep 9, 2022 ~ Bjorn Lomborg, "We need to calm down on climate. We need to stop wasting trillions achieving almost nothing." [Climate Change, Economy]
Sep 7, 2022 ~ Michael Shellenberger, Long thread explaining why we physically cannot transition to solar/wind renewables regardless of what misguided laws and subsidies politicians pass. People say fossil fuels are "finite" but they are abundant. So called "Renewables" rely on RARE earth metals. Will run out faster. "Solar/wind projects need ~300x more land, 300% more copper, and 700% more rare earths than fossil fuels. Wind/solar/batteries require: 1,000% more steel, concrete and glass; 300% more copper; and 4,200%, 2,500%, 1,900%, and 700% more lithium, graphite, nickel, and rare earths, respectively, than fossil fuels, to produce the same amount of energy, according to IEA and others." [Climate Change, Energy]
Sep 6, 2022 ~ Bjorn Lomberg breaksk down what a waste of money the Inflation Reduction Act is with regard to climate change. "President Biden's signature climate law will slow down global warming by merely 0.0009°F to 0.028°F in 2100. Not exactly cause for celebration given the $369 billion price tag.; [Anti-Science, Climate Change]
Sep 6, 2022 ~ Fox Business, "Experts blame green energy policies for Europe's full-scale energy crisis: 'A warning to the US'" 'There's been under-investment in fossil fuels in Europe,' an analyst from research firm Rystad Energy tells FOX Business. Europe is paying for their 'green' policies. [Climate Change, Economics, Economy, Energy]
Sep 6, 2022 ~ CA and other Dem states are following Europe and Sri Lanka over the cliff by banning gas powered cars by 2030. This is madness and not remotely possible. The electrical grid is currently failing in CA with just 5% electric cars and almost all electricity generated by fossil fuels. [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Economics, Energy]
Sep 5, 2022 ~ Mark Lewis, 'Come on, Hurricanes, Get With the Climate Change Program' Ever since the very active 2005 'new norm' season, hurricanes have not cooperated with the #FakeNews alarmists. Cat 3 and above have gotten far less frequent. The #FakeNews is undeterred. [Climate Change, Fake News]
Sep 5, 2022 ~ "Snows are less frequent and less deep.  They often do not lie below the mountains more than one, two, or three days and very rarely a week.  They are remembered to be formerly frequent, deep, and of long continuance.  The elderly inform me that the earth used to be covered with snow about three months every year.  The rivers, which then seldom failed to freeze over in the course of the winter, scarcely ever do now.  This changes…in the spring of the year is very fatal to fruits…I remember that when I was a small boy, say 60 years ago, snows were frequent and deep in every winter." -- Thomas Jefferson in 1799 [Climate Change]
Aug 31, 2022 ~ Bjorn Lomborg, "Is flooding becoming an ever-worse problem? No. As share of GDP, flooding costs 10x less today than it did 100 years ago.

Aug 28, 2022 ~ John Hayward 'Russia Burning Off $10M in Gas a Day That Would Have Been Sent to Europe' "The Russians are burning 4.34 million cubic meters of gas... destroying enough fuel to supply 1.5 million European homes." The Europeans harmed themselves and the CO2 is being emitted anyway! [Climate Change, Economy, Energy]
Aug 24, 2022 ~ Bjorn Lomborg just destroys the #FakeNews alarmist narrative daily with facts. "A major environmental problem, droughts, is actually decreasing.

Aug 18, 2022 ~ To illustrate how ridiculous the $7500 EV Tax Credit the government just passed is, as soon as they passed it, Fort raised the price of an electric truck by $8500. Just like colleges, not students are the beneficiaries of student loans, car companies not consumers benefit here. [Climate Change, Economics, Economy]
Aug 18, 2022 ~ Ryan Mills, 'Great Barrier Reef Defies Doomsday Predictions' Another really good history of all of the hysterical but wrong predictions and claims about the GBR. Only doom sells or gets grant funding so the truth gets suppressed until it becomes obvious. [Anti-Science, Climate Change, Fake News]
Aug 18, 2022 ~ Sharon Udasin, 'Climate change causing poorer fitness in children: study' One of the fakest #FakeNews stories every attempted. The causes of rising obesity are obvious and well known and have nothing to do with climate change. [Climate Change, Fake News]
Aug 18, 2022 ~ President Biden signs the ridiculously named Inflation Reduction Act into law. Everyone including the non-partisan CBO admit it will do nothing to reduce inflation. It wastes $750 billion on "climate change" but will also do nothing for the climate. It adds 87000 IRS agents. [Biden, Climate Change, Economics, Economy, Taxes]
Aug 18, 2022 ~ Bjorn Lomborg, "Cutting CO₂ is one of the least effective ways to cut flooding, if at all. Flooding is mostly a problem because we tend to allow most floodplains to be built up, putting more people and property in harm's way (Bull's eye effect)" [Climate Change]
Aug 16, 2022 ~ .@BjornLomborg, "Despite what you may have heard, Atlantic hurricanes are not becoming more frequent. In fact, the frequency of hurricanes making landfall in the continental U.S. has declined slightly since 1900." WSJ article shows graph with downward trend line since 1900. [Climate Change, Fake News]
Aug 14, 2022 ~ MIT Climatologist Richard Lindzen & Princeton Physics Prof. William Happer, "In our opinion, science demonstrates that there is no climate related risk caused by fossil fuels and CO2 and no climate emergency."

Aug 14, 2022 ~ Madison Dibble, "The Unintended Consequences of Declaring 'Climate Emergency'" Banning plastic bags and bottles have turned out to be a huge net negative for the environment. Solar panel waste will be tremendous. They never consider unintended consequences. [Anti-Science, Climate Change]

Aug 8, 2022 ~ "Today, the Great Barrier Reef is better than ever" says @BjornLomborg using reports from the Australian Institute of Marine Science. 2/3rds of the reef has more coral than ever. Lomborg shows decades of #FakeNews stories. Yet another alarmist scare story that was totally bogus. [Climate Change, Fake News]
Aug 4, 2022 ~ The left is combining their idiocies into even more incomprehensible nonsense. White people can't be non-binary because "they spread the gender binary around the world to justify the oppression of black and brown people." Billboard: "Protect Pregnant Men From Climate Discrimination." WTF are they even talking about?? [Climate Change, Fake Racism, Racism, Trans]
Jul 29, 2022 ~ David L. Bahnsen, 'The Bankruptcy of ESG Is Being Exposed' "ESG is a pharisaical way for people to feel virtuous and good without having to do anything at all."

[Climate Change, Environment, Loathsome Left, Violent Left]
Jul 21, 2022 ~ Gov. DeSantis criticizes Biden, "How come it’s wrong to produce our own oil and gas here, but you can go to Saudi Arabia and fist bump to try to get it from a Saudi?"

[Anti-Science, Climate Change, Economics, Economy, Energy, Environment]
Jul 16, 2022 ~ Sri Lanka has fallen. Its President had to flee the country. Destroyed via Modern Monetary Theory. Bankrupted themselves with debt and 55% inflation.

Jul 16, 2022 ~ Texas power grid is again on the brink because it relied too much on "green" energy even though it has plenty of oil and gas.
