    Five Myths About Extreme Weather and Global Warming

    There is broad (though not unanimous) agreement, even among skeptic scientists, that the earth has warmed moderately over the past 60 years and that some portion of that warming can be attributed to anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. However, despite the hoopla surrounding the recent report on the economic impacts of … More

    Obama to Lead on Climate Change, but Only Through Back Door

    During his 2013 inaugural address, President Obama told Americans that the United States “will respond to the threat of climate change” and will take the lead for other countries to follow suit. This commitment is a willful rejection of reality. Congress has been unwilling to enact legislation to unilaterally address … More

    Climate Change Not the Problem as FEMA Declarations Dramatically Slow

    Apologists for the huge number of declarations issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) typically argue that climate change is the cause of the increase. The problem for these folks is that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) just issued its 594-page special report on the topic and … More

    If IPCC Sea Level Numbers Aren’t Bad Enough, Try Tripling Them

    A recent study authored by Mark Crowell of the Federal Emergency Management Agency estimates that in the U.S., climate change will increase the area subject to flooding by 45 percent in 2100. But to get this number, the study used estimates of sea-level rise that were more than 200 percent … More

    Climate Talks or Wealth Redistribution Talks?

    Typically the largest wealth distribution program that occurs in Cancun, Mexico, is college students spending their parents’ money. That could change at the upcoming United Nations climate summit if developing countries clamoring for money to cope with global warming get their wish. With each passing year, it’s clear that international … More

    UK Climategate Investigation Conclusion: Hiding the Decline was "Misleading"

    Many in the mainstream media are attempting to portray The Independent Climate Change E-mails Review, just released in the UK, as exonerating the researchers. In fact the main conclusion, buried under pages of rhetoric, confirms that data was presented in a misleading way. Here is the actual text of the … More

    Sea Level Rises...What Sea Level Rises?

    Another one of the standout presentations at the Heartland Institute’s fourth International Conference on Climate Change was the one by Nils-Axel Morner, former emeritus head of the paleogeophysics and geodynamics department at Stockholm University. His talk focused on sea level increases and the difference between observed data and the Intergovernmental … More

    Climategate Investigation Only Fuels Controversy

    If the University of East Anglia report set up to investigate the University of East Anglia’s Climate Research Unit (CRU) was meant to put the Climategate controversy to rest in time for Earth Day, it failed spectacularly. The panel was led by Ernest Oxburg, who happens to be the honorary … More

    Climate Science Exposed: New Report on the CRU Controversy

    “The science behind climate change is settled, and human activity is responsible for global warming. That conclusion is not a partisan one.” – Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson. Forget being partisan or not. That conclusion of settled science isn’t existent. It hasn’t been for a long time, but they … More
