Gore admits Paris pact symbolic –Makes incorrect claims about Greenland, sea levels, extreme w

Update: Gore on CNN: Al Gore: ‘I Don’t Have A Private Jet…I Live A Carbon-Free Lifestyle’ -

Gore: ‘I don’t have a private jet. And what carbon emissions come from my trips on Southwest Airlines are offset. I live a carbon-free lifestyle, to the maximum extent possible.’

Gore on symbolic UN Paris Pact:

CHRIS WALLACE: “You would agree that even if all 195 nations, now 194, met their targets, it still wouldn’t solve the problem.”

AL GORE: “That is correct. However, it sends a very powerful signal to business and industry and civil society, and countries around the world.”

The Earth’s climate continues to defy Al Gore’s claims. Despite what Gore claimed on Fox News today, the scientific reality show Gore is wrong.

The Philosophic Roots of the Paris Agreement Part II: The Malthusian People Problem

Part I of this series related the Paris agreement to the Church of Climate, which takes the natural world as optimal, fragile, and sacrosanct. Any human influence on climate—regional or global; warming, cooling, or both—is a per se bad to the deep ecology movement.

A sister intellectual movement has also filled the pews of the Church of Climate. Malthusianism fears population growth and has a broad agenda in the name of sustainable development, such as these 17 goals of the United Nations.

Paris Accord – another carbon credit scheme

“What would happen if He charged you for the air that you breathe and you couldn’t afford to pay for it?”1

God provided the heavens, the earth and atmosphere and yet, this is precisely what world governments are trying to do via the Paris Accord – charge us for the very air we breathe but we can’t afford to pay for it… nor should we. It is a gift from God. And despite someone like George Soros claiming to be god – he’s not, nor is any conglomerate of nations. As much as they think they can redesign the earth’s atmosphere, they can’t. It doesn’t matter how many countries sign onto a treaty or ‘non-binding’ agreement, one or 193.

A Short Primer on the Global Warming Scam

As of today, the United States will cease all implementation of the non-binding Paris Accord and the draconian financial and economic burdens the agreement imposes on our country. Donald J. Trump 45th President of the United States

The Paris Climate Treaty has nothing to do with “climate” and everything possible to do with economics, globalism and the controlled redistribution of economic wealth as constructed through decades of advanced policies of multinational financial interests.

CO2 EMISSION HYPOCRITES

The hypocrisy of those who don’t believe or practice what they preach.

Richard Branson called out Trump for pulling America out of the Paris Accord. He said “fossil fuels are dangerous” yet he is flying Virgin planes all over the planet, and experimenting with space flights. He also owns a Dassault Falcon private jet that burns more fuel in a single trip from Hawaii to his American home than you will burn in a lifetime of driving to the beach!

Elon Musk was also critic of Trump as he flies his huge Gulfstream G650 private plane across the globe.

Exiting the Mad Hatter’s climate tea party

I can guess why a raven is like a writing-desk, Alice said. “Do you mean you think you can find out the answer?” said the March Hare. “Exactly so,” said Alice. “Then you should say what you mean,” the March Hare went on. “I do,” Alice replied. “At least I mean what I say. That’s the same thing, you know.”

“Not the same thing a bit!” said the Hatter. “You might just as well say, ‘I see what I eat’ is the same thing as ‘I eat what I see’!” “You might just as well say,” added the Dormouse, ‘I breathe when I sleep’ is the same thing as ‘I sleep when I breathe’!” “It IS the same thing with you,” said the Hatter.

Can you imagine stumbling upon the Mad Hatter’s tea party, watching as the discussions become increasingly absurd—and yet wanting a permanent seat at the table? Could Lewis Carroll have been having nightmares about the Paris climate treaty when he wrote Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland?

Has Permian Productivity Peaked?

The U.S. shale industry might have just received a huge windfall with the nine-month extension of the OPEC cuts. Shale output was already expected to come roaring back this year, but the extension of the cuts provides even more room in the market for shale drillers to step into.

The sky is the limit, it seems. However, there are growing signs that the U.S. shale industry could be reaching the end of the low-hanging fruit. Or, more specifically, drilling costs are starting to rise and the enormous leaps in production that can be obtained by simply adding more rigs also appears to be running into some trouble.

According to the EIA’s Drilling Productivity Report, productivity (as opposed to absolute production) is set to fall next month in the Permian Basin. In other words, the average rig will only be able to produce an estimated 630 barrels per day of initial production from a new well, down 10 b/d from the 640 b/d that such a rig might have produced in May. That is convoluted way of saying that the ever-increasing returns on throwing more rigs at the problem might be hitting a ceiling.

Paris Climate Accord -Climate Control or People Control?

President Donald Trump pulled us out of the Paris Climate Accord. Few realize how fortunate we are as a result.  Because of this, of course, the President is being attacked by every liberal, globalist, socialist, environmental wacko, media nut job and political adversary.  Nothing new there.

What we are being told is that if carbon emissions continue unchecked, atmospheric temperatures will continue to climb, causing sea levels to rise, more powerful storms, droughts that will lead to food shortages and according to John Kerry, more acute asthma. We are also being told that the United States, while 4% of the world’s population, is responsible for almost a third of the “excess carbon dioxide” in the atmosphere.

Would Hayek Want a Carbon Tax?

For some time now, a small but vocal group of writers have tried to convince the base of libertarians and conservatives that a carbon tax is actually consistent with their principles. Although I disagree with their arguments, I’m happy to have such a debate, as I think the case against a carbon tax is very strong.

However, what I find disheartening are more recent attempts to hijack the legacies of deceased libertarians in order to bolster support for a carbon tax, even though these icons would probably recoil from this association of their names with the proposal.

The latest example is Ed Dolan’s recent essay for the Niskanen Center that argued Friedrich Hayek would have supported a carbon tax. As I will show, there is no foundation for such a claim; in fact Dolan himself admits that Hayek never wrote on the issue. Beyond that, I’ll providence evidence that Hayek was skeptical of top-down correctives from government officials as a way to address negative externalities.

‘Au Revoir’ Paris Climate Change Treaty!

With President Donald Trump reportedly pulling the United States out of the Paris climate accord, heads must be exploding in California’s Democratic supermajority State Capitol. However, Trump’s decision fulfills a very important campaign promise he made to “cancel” the accord.

California Gov. Jerry Brown issued an Executive Order in 2015 for a drastic new target for greenhouse gas emissions cuts, coinciding with the international Paris Climate Change Treaty. Brown said it was critical to address what he called “an ever-growing threat” posed by global warming to California’s economy and well-being. Brown’s order went even further than then-President Obama’s radical proposals, but aligned with the European Union and United Nations proposals.

Reports: Trump to pull out of Paris Climate Accord

As has become the norm lately, “unidentified sources” are indicating that President Trump will be pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord.  Liberal heads are exploding, doomsayers are predicting the end of the world, climate pimps are screeching, and the media is stoking the fires of its 24-hour panic machine. Build your bunkers, because there’s a good chance the Earth will split in two later this week.

As Fox news reports:

U.S. President Donald Trump has decided to withdraw from the Paris climate accord, Axios news outlet reported on Wednesday, citing two unidentified sources with direct knowledge of the decision.

Please Exit the Paris Climate Treaty

Dear Mr. President:

Are you are still wondering whether to Exit Paris? Overseas and US officials, environmentalists and bureaucrats urge you to Remain. But you promised voters you would Exit. Please keep your promises.

Exit Paris isn’t about the environment. It’s about letting us utilize our fossil fuel energy to create jobs, rebuild our economy, and Make America Great Again. It’s about avoiding immense transfer payments from the USA to foreign governments, bureaucrats and parties unaccountable to Trump-voting taxpayers.

Worse, even if the USA Remains, and the repulsive payments flow, Paris offers no help in removing real air pollutants. Carbon dioxide isn’t one of them, by the way: it’s plant food, not poison.

Report: Trump tells ‘confidants’ U.S. will leave Paris climate deal

WASHINGTON – Multiple news agencies, including Reuters News, are now reporting that President Donald Trump has privately informed several officials in Washington DC that he intends to withdraw from the UN Paris climate pact.

Climate Depot’s Marc Morano statement: “A U.S. Clexit (Climate Exit from UN Paris Pact) would be a victory for science. Make no mistake, climate campaigners who tout UN agreements and EPA regulations as a way to control Earth’s temperature and storminess are guilty of belief in superstition.”

Nipping a legal problem in the bud

One of my recent articles predicted that the Fish & Wildlife Service’s endangered species designation for the rusty patched bumblebee would lead to its being used to delay or block construction projects and pesticide use on hundreds of millions of acres of US farmland. The abuses have already begun.

Projects in Minnesota and elsewhere have been delayed, while people tried to ascertain that no bees were actually nesting in the areas. Now a federal district court judge has ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency failed to consult with the FWS before approving 59 products containing neonicotinoid pesticides that are used primarily as seed coatings for corn, canola, cotton, potato, sugar beet and other crops.

As crops bud and grow, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke and EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt must nip this problem in the bud. Thankfully, Judge Maxine Chesney has given them the means to do so.

The Philosophic Roots of the Paris Agreement: Deep Ecology vs. Human Progress

In his essay “The Church of Environmentalism,” Jeremy Carl told the story of Julian Simon participating at an environmental forum.

“How many people here believe that the earth is increasingly polluted and that our natural resources are being exhausted?”, Simon asked. After a roomful of hands were raised, Simon then asked: “Is there any evidence that could dissuade you?” After silence, he followed up: “Is there any evidence I could give you—anything at all—that would lead you to reconsider these assumptions?”

After more silence, Simon answered: “Well, excuse me. I’m not dressed for church.”

Train of Thoughts

Am I reading right? A (railway) train jumped the tracks, right in a major city’s main train station? Perhaps I misread that (reminder to myself: get an eye-checkup forthwith!) —that must be a MISPRINT!

Doesn’t everyone know that we now live in the 21st century, with all the promises of “autonomous cars” (and everything else) “connected” to the mysterious “internet of things”? And trains run on a couple of tracks, not like cars that can meander all over the road and further afield? If the (relatively) few trains can’t keep on the track, what may happen when millions of autonomous cars are supposed to be on the road – I shudder to think of it.

Questioning Carbon Accounting For Lakes And Rivers

People are willing to set up a two trillion dollar global market to read carbon, but their carbon models are so primitive that giant ‘oops’ moments are now happening on a regular basis reports Joanne Nova. 1

A Yale-led study in 2015 estimated that there are more than 3 trillion trees on Earth, about seven and a half times more than some previous estimates. Previously, the only global estimate was just over 400 billion trees worldwide, or about 61 trees for every person on Earth. The Yale study used a combination of appaoiches to reveal that there are 3 trillion trees—roughly 422 trees per person. 2

Today’s Stunted Oil Prices Could Cause Oil Price Shock In 2020

As oil prices remain unsteady and OPEC continues to make headlines every hour, the world is focused on oil’s immediate future. As Saudi Arabia announces plans to slash production and move their economy away from oil dependency, many industry insiders are predicting that the now over-saturated market will reach an equilibrium with higher commodity prices by 2018 and U.S. shale production will continue to grow along with global demand.

Robert Johnston, the CEO of one of the world’s biggest political risk consultancies, is unconvinced. In a speech made at the Association of International Petroleum Negotiators’ 2017 International Petroleum Summit, Johnston laid out his concerns for the future of oil.
