Portland School Board Bans Literature Denying Climate Change

By Joseph Jankowski

There will be no more discussion as to whether or not humans are contributing to climate change in the Portland, Oregon public school system, as the school board plans to ban all material that denies the existence of man-made climate change.

Although the topic is still being heavily debated within the scientific community, young and impressionable students will now only receive the politically correct side of the issue...

In rural Maine, a life of solitude and larceny - Police say hermit stole to survive 27 years in woods

ROME, Maine — Christopher Knight told police he had lived undetected in the woods for 27 years, spoken to only one person in that time, and not made a single purchase since the mid-1980s. But Knight knew how to steal, authorities said, and how to stay hidden even though his tent lay within 600 yards of the nearest cabin. Such is the singular world of the man dubbed the North Pond Hermit by the long-spooked residents here, where Knight is believed to have committed more than 1,000 burglaries for food, fuel, tools, and clothing since he left a computer-technician job and retreated to the forest. Now, the 47-year-old is residing in the Kennebec County Correctional Facility in Augusta, facing burglary and theft charges, as banjo players rhapsodize about him and bewildered Mainers shake their heads at the thought of 27 winters in the open.

BEX ALERT - 99 Percent Chance 2016 Will Be the Hottest Year on Record

Odds are increasing that 2016 will be the hottest year on the books, as April continued a remarkable streak of record-warm months.

Last month was rated as the warmest April on record by both NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which released their data this week. In the temperature annals kept by NOAA, it marked the 12th record warmest month in a row.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And if you can't trust the government that told you Saddam had nuclear weapons, who CAN you trust! :)

So, quick recap...

On one side you have all these various institutions which are being funded and directed to "prove" humans are warming the Earth, so that a desperately broke and hopelessly in debt government can impose a carbon tax on an already over-taxed people.

On the other side, you have all these record setting winters we have experienced the last several years, including the current one, in which snow is still falling here and there a month before the official start of summer! In the Southern hemisphere, their winter has arrived early this year.

So, do you trust the word of the same government that insists 92 million out of work Americans translates to a 5% jobless rate, or do you trust your own senses?

The actual empirical evidence is that the sun has entered a period of reduced activity; a repeat of the Maunder Minimum, and is bringing with it a repeat of the Little Ice Age. And we see all those who bet their reputations on Al Gore's Human-Caused Global Warming hysteria struggling not to have to admit they were made total fools of!

Late-season mountain snow and cold

Do you have plans of going to the mountains in the West for a little rest and relaxation? Want to enjoy the beautiful scenery and walk in the out of doors? If those are your plans through the upcoming weekend from Washington state to California and into the Rockies, you had better think twice or be ready for March-like, not May, weather.

Another cold storm is dropping south out of the Gulf of Alaska and will enter the Northwest Thursday and push south into California Friday, and then spread out eastward Friday into the weekend. This will bring wind, temperatures well below normal and late-season mountain snow. Not only will there be mountain snow, but it will fall at unusually low levels for this late in the season.

Renewable Energy Is A Clean Green Criminal Machine

SunEdison yieldco TerraForm Global (GLBL) has 90 days to file its delayed 10-K or be required to immediately repay $810 million in defaulted loans, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

Goldman Sachs and other lenders backing the 9.75% senior notes, due in 2022, agreed to reduce TerraForm Global’s commitment to $350 million. TerraForm Global has until June 30 to comply with Nasdaq listing requirements by turning over the late 10-K, the annual financial report that the SEC requires of all publicly traded companies. A number of energy companies have formed publicly traded yieldcos designed to hold assets and provide steady cash flows and certain tax benefits.

Al Gore, big government eco-charlatan who is poised to become world’s first ‘carbon billionaire’

Ten years after the release of Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth, none of the film’s dire climate change predictions have come to pass. However, in the decade since the documentary was produced, its creator has raked in millions of dollars from the entire “global warming” scam, and is now poised to become “our first carbon billionaire.”

In the 2006 film, Gore made a number of wild claims regarding what we could expect to see happening over the next few years due to global warming, but virtually all of his alarmist prognostications have turned out to be false.

Why People Don’t Believe in Science

In November the magazine published an issue devoted to climate change. Susan Goldberg, editor since 2015, says that afterward she received a congratulatory note from [Rupert] Murdoch, saying he’d “gathered his family around” to read through the important issue. She says he’s made only one editorial suggestion to her. “James is an environmentalist,” Goldberg says. “He said, ‘I wish we could do more stories about why people don’t believe science.’?” –Bloomberg

Dissent Must Be Silenced

There is a conspiracy afoot to shield Americans from the truth about climate change, however you may be surprised to learn who exactly is deceiving the public and committing the fraud. These perpetrators are utilizing propaganda, Hollywood and political elites, and the cover of institutional authority and resources to bulldoze radical changes on society. It is clear to them that all dissent must be stamped out.

Last year a group of 20 “academics,” led by George Mason University’s Jagadish Shukla, wrote the President, the U.S. Attorney General, and the director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy to “strongly endorse” Senator Sheldon Whitehouse’s call to use the RICO statutes (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) to go after any dissenting voices opposing popular climate orthodoxy.

WOW: MILLIONS Of Crabs Wash Up On Newport Beach, Calif. Coastline

This is the most bizarre and horrible thing I've ever seen in Newport, and I've been going there since I was a kid. Corporate news reports acknowledge that such crabs are virtually unheard of for Newport in the first place, not having been seen there for decades. Some reports blame the bizarre 'biblical proportion' event on the warm water of El Nino, but the Orange County Register admits that experts aren't really sure of the cause. There is a sea of dead red crabs blanketing the beach for MILES, as far as the eye can see! I think it probably has to do with the Fukushima disaster, as certain data indicates.

Enormous Arctic whale spotted in British waters for only the second time in history

The 25 ft giant, weighing up to 90 tons, was spotted close to a popular Cornish tourist beach, leading to fears that it might get stranded.

Its appearance in shallows near Long Rock Beach near Penzance comes a year after the first ever of these cetaceans arrived in British waters, 2,000 miles from the usual range.

By rights, bowhead whales, so-named because of the shape of their jaws, should be swimming close to the pack ice but this individual’s arrival suggests unusual conditions in the Arctic.

The Very Good Effect of More CO2

Ever since the late Margaret Mead organized a conference in 1975 to deliberately propagate an unscientific fear campaign, fraudulently claiming that manmade emissions of CO2 gases were endangering the global climate, the UN, countless NGOs and many governments have spent billions of dollars trying to find ways to reduce CO2 “man-made” emissions. In those days it was known as Global Warming until measured temperatures began falling, whereupon when the sponsors of the colossal scientific fraud changed the name to Climate Change. The campaign has largely failed, fortunately for the future of life on the planet. One indication of a return to scientific honesty is a study just published by Washington’s NASA on the effects of CO2 across the planet since the 1980s.

Frosts and freezes galore for Michigan in coming days

A colder-than-normal pattern is going to dominate Michigan's weather through Wednesday of next week. This could lead to several mornings in a row with frost or freezing temperatures.

Frost normally occurs when the official thermometers drop below 35 degrees. You probably are wondering how ice can form at that temperature. The thermometers are at 6 feet above ground. Cold air sinks. If the thermometer reads 35 degrees, the ground temperature could be 32 degrees.

So when you look through the maps above, be concerned about your location having frost at temperatures of 35 degrees or colder.

UMD farm wind turbine spinning out of control

“They aren’t able to stop it so it’s spinning really rapidly,’’ he said.

CEI Defeats RICO-20 Ringleader Shukla In FOIA Lawsuit – Emails to be made public

The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) prevailed in a Virginia Freedom of Information Act (VFOIA) lawsuit against George Mason University (GMU). The VFOIA request sought public records showing how the “RICO-20” group of academics, using public funding, organized their call for a federal racketeering investigation of “corporations and other entities” who disagreed with them on climate policy.

The judge ruled for CEI on all counts in an April 22 ruling in Christopher Horner and CEI v. George Mason University that the court released today. The ruling concluded that by leaving it to faculty who simply told the school’s FOIA officer they had no responsive records, GMU failed to conduct an adequate search; the judge also ruled that documents including emails from GMU Professor Ed Maibach must be released to CEI.

Ten years later, Al Gore's 'Inconvenient Truth' propaganda film turns out to be total bunk... How is his profit from carbon taxes not criminal FRAUD?

Although Gore's claims have been thoroughly debunked by a number of experts, he has been quietly amassing a huge fortune based on the climate change scam.

Mad World News reports:

"Gore's wealth went from $700,000 in 2000 to an estimated net worth of $172.5 million by 2015 thanks to his environmentalist activism. Gore and the former chief of Goldman Sachs Asset Management made nearly $218 million in profits between 2008 and 2011 from a carbon trading company they co-founded. By 2008, Gore was able to put a whopping $35 million into hedge funds and other investments."

Nine years of censorship

The crackdown on government scientists in Canada began in 2006, after Stephen Harper of the Conservative Party was elected prime minister. During the nine-year Harper administration, the government placed a priority on boosting the economy, in part by stimulating development and increasing the extraction of resources, such as petroleum from the oil sands in Alberta. To speed projects along, the administration eased environmental regulations. And when journalists sought out government scientists to ask about the impacts of such changes, or anything to do with environmental or climate science, they ran into roadblocks.

Headlines 'exaggerated' climate link to sinking of Pacific islands

Links between climate change and the sinking of five islands in the Pacific Ocean have been exaggerated, the author of a widely reported new study has said.

The report, published on Friday, tracked the shapeshifting of 33 reef islands in the Solomon Islands between 1947 and 2014. It found that five had been washed away completely and six more had been severely eroded. The study blamed the loss on a combination of sea-level rise and high wave energy.

Many media outlets, including the Guardian, jumped to the conclusion that the islands were lost to climate change. But this largely misinterprets the science, according to the study’s author, Dr Simon Albert.

Fort McMurray Wildfire – Climate or Incompetence?

Understaffed, under-resourced forestry workers struggling to contain a growing risk of wildfire, a risk which has been exacerbated by excessive fire suppression causing a buildup of flammables, is a recipe for disaster.

Did Alberta authorities act, and act effectively, on the recommendations of committee? I don’t know the answer to that question. It is possible weather conditions are so severe, even completely reasonable forest safety measures have been overwhelmed by the ferocity of the fire. But if my property and life was directly affected by the current ongoing conflagration, my first question to Alberta authorities would not be “why didn’t you build more wind turbines?”.

“I have no doubt,” I wrote then, “that the government will begin modifying these claims by 2025, if not sooner.” I began saving screenshots of government websites which make the claim that manmade-global-warming will melt the GNP glaciers by 2030.

It turns out I didn’t need to wait very long at all. Today, on May 4, 2016, I started looking for the government’s ‘repeat photography’ sites.

Government Targets 90 Conservative Groups for Being Skeptical of Climate Change

Regardless of how you feel about climate change (or any controversial debate for that matter) you probably already know that you can’t change someone’s mind by persecuting them. You can’t a hold a gun to their head, metaphorically or literally, and punish them for disagreeing with you. If anything that will only reinforce their beliefs. It’s not only wrong, it’s stupid.

Don’t tell that to Attorney General Claude Walker of the US Virgin Islands. He’s issued a subpoena to Exxon Mobil, asking them to hand over communications with 90 different conservative and libertarian groups, such as “the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute, the Federalist Society, the Hoover Institution, the Reason Foundation, and the Mercatus Institute” as part of a wider racketeering lawsuit.

Weather Channel founder calls Bill Nye ‘a pretend scientist in a bow tie’

A stormy fight is brewing between Weather Channel founder John Coleman and Bill Nye the Science Guy — who bashed a new movie featuring Coleman that denies the existence of global warming.

“I have always been amazed that anyone would pay attention to Bill Nye, a pretend scientist in a bow tie,” Coleman said Friday, according to ClimateDepot.com.

The science smackdown started after Nye shunned the film “Climate Hustle,” which Coleman introduces, and warned viewers not to take it seriously.

“I think it will expose your point of view as very much in the minority and very much not in our national interest and the world’s interest,” Nye said of the movie, according to the climate change website.

Climate Hustle is a new film that debunks the global warming scare and will be playing in selected theatres across the U.S. on Monday May 2

Climate Hustle was produced to tear the cover off of the global warming debate to further investigate this multi-billion-dollar issue. This film event will reveal the history of climate scares, examine the science on both sides of the debate, and dig into the politics and media hype surrounding the issue. Cinema audiences will learn more about the topic through a panel discussion headlined by Sarah Palin (2008 Republican Vice Presidential Candidate; Governor of Alaska 2006-2009); moderated by Brent Bozell, Founder and President of the Media Research Center and respected climatologist Dr. David Legates. This riveting discussion will focus on climate change and issues brought up during the event.

Climate Hustle has been touted by the National Review as "Brutal and extremely funny." Cal Thomas called the movie "Tremendous," and Breitbart News proclaimed the film as "Dynamite."

The pumping of excessive carbon dioxide into the atmosphere has widely been presented as setting our planet on a path towards disaster.

But a new study has revealed rising levels of the greenhouse gas due to humanity's actions is actually having a surprising side-effect – it is making the Earth greener.

Satellite data gathered over 33 years has shown there has been a 'persistent and widespread increase' in the growing season of plants.

Bill Nye, UN Climate Scientist Warn Moviegoers to Shun Film’s 1-Day Theater Release: ‘Not in Our National Interest’

Leading climate activists are warning moviegoers to shun the May 2nd nationwide one-day theater screening of “Climate Hustle,” a new film debunking climate alarmism and its big government solutions.

Bill Nye (not a real “science guy,” FYI), who entertains the idea of throwing climate skeptics in the slammer, warned the film’s producer, Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano, that “Climate Hustle’s” content endangers not just the nation, but also the world:

“I think it will expose your point of view as very much in the minority and very much not in our national interest and the world’s interest.”

AGU says CO2 is plant food

Scientists have long suspected that a flourishing of green foliage around the globe, observed since the early 1980s in satellite data, springs at least in part from the increasing concentration of carbon dioxide in Earth’s atmosphere. Now, a study of arid regions around the globe finds that a carbon dioxide “fertilization effect” has, indeed, caused a gradual greening from 1982 to 2010.

It Was Snowing At The Munich Tennis Tournament!

“I have never seen anything like this before,” said Australian doubles specialist John Peers. “It’s the first time at an outdoor tour-level event that I have seen snow and matches had to be suspended. Being Australian it was definitely something different. We actually got lucky as it didn’t snow during practice, but literally right before and right after it did. It was so cold and our hands were frozen. Apparently we could get some more over the next day or two. Time to rug up I think.”

My review: Skeptic Film ‘Climate Hustle’ to appear in theaters Nationwide one week from tonight

One week from tonight on May 2nd, CFACT’s groundbreaking film Climate Hustle will be shown in movie theaters across the United States for a special one-night event. I’m in the film, and for the record I’m not paid to do so. That’s not a complaint, just a statement for those people who try to link any opinion to some sort of “pay for play” arrangement, since they have so little else in their toolbox to argue with.

I was given an advance showing of the film, and while at first, I thought perhaps the film was maybe a bit too corny, especially when Morano recreates the famous elevator/lift scene from Al Gore’s long debunked movie, An Inconvenient Truth, and does a terrible job of play acting. I thought then that maybe it just wasn’t going to be a credible response.

Obama’s Global Warming Plan Cost Poor Americans $44 Billion, Raises Taxes By 166%

President Obama’s global warming plan would cost America’s poorest families billions annually, according to a report published Thursday by the Manhattan Institute.

The study estimates that Obama’s global warming plan would increase the costs of living for the poorest American families an additional $19 billion per year, equivalent to increasing their taxes by 166 percent. The tax increase would also raise taxes on other poor families by an extra $25 billion, equal to a 33 percent tax increase. Living costs for the richest households would only increase by 4 percent.

5 Scientific Reasons That Global Warming Isn't Happening

If nothing changes in the next year, we're going to have kids who graduate from high school who will have never seen any "global warming" during their lifetimes. That's right; the temperature of the planet has essentially been flat for 17 years. This isn't a controversial assertion either. Even the former Director of the Climate Research Unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, Phil Jones, admits that it's true. Since the planet was cooling from 1940-1975 and the upswing in temperature afterward only lasted 22 years, a 17 year pause is a big deal. It also begs an obvious question: How can we be experiencing global warming if there's no actual "global warming?"

Army TOP Priority they focua on

This is what the Army concentrates on.
It is strange if you think about it too long. How much things have changed in such a short time. How just the thinking has changed. Twenty-five years ago we were worried about nukes and WMDs in Iraq. We had a focus, but we were by and large at peace.

Now we are faced with a resurgent Russia pushing in several areas, ISIS, Afghan Terrorists, and a very unstable Middle East that seems ready to fall into despotism. And the strong military that was set to stand and did stand in our and our allies’ defense is slowly being dismantled.

While this occurs what does the Army say it needs to do? Concentrate on Climate Change.

Weather Channel Founder Slams Global Warming: "The Theory Has Failed"

If Bill Nye had his way, Weather Channel founder John Coleman would be heading for jail. Having spent more than 60 years as a meteorologist, Coleman penned a pointed rebuke to "the science guy's" vehement faith in the 'science' of climate change, exclaiming that "science has taken a back seat at The UN... get politics out of the climate debate."

On this Earth Day 2016, there is a great deal of frenzy about how our Earth is going to become uninhabitable, as the civilized activities of man allegedly trigger unstoppable global warming and climate change.

With the Obama administration set to commit the U.S. to the Paris climate agreement by signing our nation onto the document Friday, it is obvious that science has taken a back seat at the United Nations.

The Paris Agreement: An Assessment

Recent analysis indicates that the sensitivity of the climate to rising levels of carbon dioxide is lower than previously assumed. This is consistent with the finding that forecasts of warming by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change have substantially over-estimated the likely extent of warming. If these new analyses of sensitivity are correct, average global temperatures might rise to less than 2°C above preindustrial levels without any restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions.

Regardless of whether the new analyses of climate sensitivity are correct or not, the voluntary commitments to reduce emissions made by governments in their Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) would have little impact on the rate of warming.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Paris agreement isn't intended to affect the rate of warming (or cooling). It's just a scam to justify wealth redistribution; to make all nations' economies equally horrible so the borders can be dropped.

BEX ALERT - "Global Elite's Theater": Paris Deal Is Mere Starting Point for Climate Justice

175 countries sign Paris climate accord

‘Today is an historic day,’ says Ban, as 175 countries sign Paris climate accord

22 April 2016 – As 175 world leaders signed the Paris Agreement at United Nations Headquarters today, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the next critical step is to ensure that the landmark accord for global action on climate change enters into force as soon as possible.

“Today is an historic day,” Mr. Ban told reporters at a press conference following the opening ceremony of the signing event. “This is by far the largest number of countries ever to sign an international agreement on a single day.”

According to the UN chief, the participation by so many countries and the attendance by so many world leaders leaves “no doubt” that the international community is determined to take climate action.>>>

‘But aren’t 97 per cent of climate scientists sure that humans are causing global warming?’

The crème de la crème comes with the work (if that is right term for it) of John Cook, occasionally aided by Stefan Lewandowsky. I’ve written about their ‘contribution’ to science more than once, as here, for example. In 2013 Cook et al and a team of volunteers looked at more than 12,000 abstracts, rated them according to whether or not they implicitly or explicitly endorsed the view that human activity had caused (wait for it) some of the warming, and again found the magic 97 per cent. See — it’s true! Surely those three separate ratings of 97 per cent have something going for them.

On the face of it, no. Unfortunately for Cook, Legates and others later in the same year published a rebuttal. They found that only 41 papers – 0.3% of all 11,944 abstracts or 1.0% of the 4,014 expressing an opinion, and not 97.1% – had been found to endorse the claim that human activity is causing most of the current warming.

6 Reasons Why Most Scientific Research is Fake, False or Fraudulent

How often do scientists smugly quote the latest research on a topic only later to be made the fool by insider revelations that published research in peer-reviewed journals is abjectly false? This happens so frequently now, that it has become clear: Science is broken, and most scientific research is fraudulent.

It isn’t broken like a bike needing a new tire, or even an outdated paradigm that has reached its tipping point, as in the time of the renaissance. Modern science is broken for reasons that might shock you.

First, there’s a replication crisis. More and more studies simply cannot be replicated, so any false theories are not thrown out, but left floating as acceptable ‘fact’ in the hallowed scientific ethers, when they are nothing more than studies paid for and promoted by the companies who have a marked interest in proving their personal hypothesis.

Bill Nye 'The Straw Man Guy'

So Bill Nye, the elementary “Science Guy” (we prefer the more accurate phrase “Science Lie”), is taking on Patriot Post contributor and veteran meteorologist Joe Bastardi. Posing with a fabricated hard copy of a Post publication in his latest video, Nye responds directly to Bastardi’s November column, “Some Questions for Bill Nye Six Years After Our ‘O'Reilly Factor’ Debate.” Nye’s challenge? “Mr. Bastardi, I will bet you $10,000. I predict that the year 2016 will be among the top ten hottest years ever recorded. … I’ll take it up a notch. I’ll bet you another $10,000 that the decade 2010-2020 will prove to be the hottest decade ever recorded.”

Bastardi has been quite public about forecasting a warm 2016 since last year. Nye is apparently unaware of this, so he resorted to a straw man. Why would Joe bet against his own forecast?
