    Carbon taxes are facing new troubles on the left even as the idea is beginning to slowly inch from the political wilderness on the right. Why it matters: The posture of ascendant progressives is another reason why it’s unclear if carbon taxes will ever emerge as a central federal climate policy. It’s a stark contrast from […]

    From the “alarmists and their cats are grumpy over this” department.   There’s been some recent hubbub over decreasing snowfall in the northern hemisphere by the usual suspects, who claim that AGW is reducing snow cover. And then of course, there’s Dr. David Viner of CRU, who famously said in a story in the UK […]

  • As the Old Faiths Collapse, the Greens, Social Justice Warriors, and Techno-Futurists Aim to Fill the Void

    They may see themselves as avant-garde, but the greens have perhaps more in common with feudal clerics than they might suspect. Nothing so resembles the bad old days of religion than the green movement’s apocalyptic and authoritarian approach. The pews are emptying virtually everywhere in the higher-income world. The Catholic Church is divided and enmeshed in scandal, […]

  • Green Weenie Of The Week: ‘Only Nuclear War Can Save Us From Climate Disruption’

    Perhaps we should be grateful for Mr. Miller-McDonald in making explicit that the climatistas want to “shut down the global economy.” This is another good sign of how climate change has completely deranged some people. As I suggested in my latest Loose Ends post earlier today, our standards for giving out one of our highly […]

    Vilifying climate heretics remains socially acceptable Paul Krugman, New York Times columnist, winner of the 2008 Nobel Prize in Economics. Photo from NobelPrize.org (click)   Climate change is a full-blown religious crusade. News organizations, church leaders, schools, corporations, and governments all insist something dangerous is underway, and that vigorous responses are necessary. Anyone who dares challenge this doctrine is a heretic. In […]

    • Paul Homewood, Not A Lot Of People Know That

    The BBC has dropped all pretence that they are nothing more than a PR site for green activism. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/world-us-canada-46623772/i-m-not-having-children-to-help-fight-climate-change We know that, when it comes to climate change, much of the BBC’s news output is biased, exaggerated or downright fake. But now they have dropped all pretence that they are nothing more than a PR site […]

Reindeer (Rangifer tarandus), introduced to St. Matthew Island in 1944, increased from 29 animals at that time […]

In preparing this article, I have received material from a member of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington. I also ran into another member of the Department while at the AGU meeting this week, who corroborated […]
