Global Warming: "An apocalyptic theory that every scientist believes in - except dissenting scientists who don't count - best bemoaned from one's Gulf Stream jet en route to an international conference on the environment."

“Never forget, the most powerful economies in the world are powered by conventional fuels. Try and change it overnight and all you get is a weaker economy.”

“To hide behind the dubious precision of scientific numbers, and not actually expose one’s own ideologies or beliefs or values and judgements is undermining both politics and science”

"The errors in the record exceed by a wide margin the purported rise in temperature of 0.7º C (about 1.2º F) during the twentieth century. Consequently, this record should not be cited as evidence of any trend in temperature that may have occurred across the U.S. during the past century. Since the U.S. record is thought to be “the best in the world,” it follows that the global database is likely similarly compromised and unreliable. "

"The most extreme environmentalists have as an ultimate goal the reduction of the human population to such a level as they believe concords with the 'carrying capacity' of this planet, and feel that their morality is on a higher plane than those who do not share this desire. And with the help of environmental organisations, they have worked hard at getting to the top of committees, organisations and, yes, governmental bureaucracies. Should President Obama ever feel the need to tell the EPA to back off, he may be surprised at the answer he receives."

You can almost hear the first green president channeling JFK: “Ask not what you can do for a crisis; ask what the crisis can do for you.”

"But at the end of the day, the rhetoric from some of the alarmists sounds like they just want us to stop having a good life--and global warming is just as good an excuse as any for them to push for it."

"Do you ever wonder how communism could last for 70 years in Russia? Surely there was plenty of evidence, for decades, that the system was failing: food shortages, declining life expectancy, increased infant mortality, low standards of living, primitive hospitals, and sanitation facilities lagging far behind those in Western Europe and America — not to mention pollution far worse than in the West. But to diehard communists, the facts did not matter. All the observable negatives of collectivism were trumped by ideology. The same is true of the ideology behind global warming."

"...what's truly evil about these people transferring all of the associations from Holocaust Denial to those who don't agree with them about climate change is the fact that they are trivialising the deaths of six million people by doing so. That is evil, as evil as those who first began denying the Holocaust.

Re: Catlin Expedition
Is this not a conflict of interest? Sending environmental activists to gather climatic data for an insurance company trying to asses rates due to impact from climate change?

“According to a new U.N. report, the global warming outlook is much worse than originally predicted. Which is pretty bad when they originally predicted it would destroy the planet.”

The truth is that nature is not a poisoner. It’s human beings who are spreading the big lie, that annoying mental infection. And it’s human beings who can learn — with the right education — to be very skeptical about all the crooked politicians trying squeeze money out of you by telling you ever bigger lies. You just have to protect your own sanity — because the media sure won’t.

My running mean of the International Sunspot Number for 2009 just dipped below 1.00. For anything comparable you now need to go back before 1913 (which scored a 1.43) which could mean we’re now competing directly with the Dalton Minimum

So where's the "compelling and overwhelming" evidence that carbon dioxide emissions from American cars and power plants "pose a danger to the public's health and welfare"?

Who has died as a result of "global warming"?

It's all derived from science-fiction computer models -- designed by the people who quite presciently gave us the term "garbage in, garbage out."

"The claim that the warming trend over the last 50 to 100 years is continuing right now, or that it is even ‘accelerating’ is pure speculation, based upon the assumption that what has happened in recent decades will continue into the future."

"It's the beginning of a regulatory barrage that will destroy jobs, raise energy prices for consumers, and undermine America's global competitiveness."

“If the question is whether India will take on binding emission reduction commitments, the answer is no. It is morally wrong for us to agree to reduce when 40 percent of Indians do not have access to electricity,”

It is inevitable that mankind will have to move away from fossil fuel energy sources. What is not inevitable is that we need to do this with the gun of man made global warming pointed at our head. Especially when it is realized that the gun is filled with blanks.

"To reduce modern climate change to one variable, CO2, or a small proportion of one variable - human-induced CO2 - is not science. To try to predict the future based on just one variable (CO2) in extraordinarily complex natural systems is folly. Yet when astronomers have the temerity to show that climate is driven by solar activities rather than CO2 emissions, they are dismissed as dinosaurs undertaking the methods of old-fashioned science."

“The Earth spins at the equator at 1,038 mph; the Earth moves around the sun at 67,000 mph; our solar system travels around our galaxy at 558,000 mph and our galaxy is moving through the universe at 666,000 mph. So, right now you may be moving at 1,292,000 mph, and Washington, D.C., says they’re going to control our climate. I don’t think so.”

"Al Gore’s movie and books are so appallingly riddled with mistakes and outlandish exaggerations that they would be laughable if they weren’t taken so seriously by so many."
