Global Warming-Energy-Environment


Will Kyoto turn Europe into Cuba?

The EU steel industry is terrified that Europe’s new cap-and-trade system of penalizing steel-plant emissions will cost 50,000 of its 300,000 steel-industry jobs. But don’t worry, if the EU gets serious about cap-and-trade, it will simply violate the rules of the World Trade Organization and start taxing imported steel for the CO2 emissions from Indian and Chinese steel plants.

Idiotic Solutions to Non-Problems

Since there is no threat from greenhouse emissions, especially carbon dioxide, the notion that The New York Times would devote space to a “solution” to CO2 that lacks even a modicum of common sense simply reaffirms this newspaper’s obsession with “global warming.”

The Coming of a New Ice Age

Yet another dissenter of the church of global warming. Gerald Marsh is a retired physicist from the Argonne National Laboratory and a former consultant to the Department of Defense on strategic nuclear technology and policy in the Reagan, Bush, and Clinton Administration.

Looming Lightbulb Liability

The speeding freight train carrying toxic waste liability for makers, sellers and purchasers of compact fluorescent lightbulbs (CFLs) was only faintly audible in the distance last spring when this column first warned of it.

‘Authoritarian form of government’ needed to solve global warming

Excerpt: the authors of a new book, The Climate Change Challenge and the Failure of Democracy, go much further, claiming that global warming can be effectively dealt with only by “an authoritarian form of government.” In an article promoting the book, co-author David Shearman praises China’s recent ban on plastic shopping bags, expressing special admiration for its authoritarian quality. “The importance of the decision,” he writes, “lies in the fact that China can do it by edict and close the factories.”

Governors Ignore Infrastructure, Discuss Environment

At a time when America’s infrastructure—bridges, roads, seaports and airports—is in need of repair, the nation’s governors are gathering to discuss ways to waste time, money, and labor on something that is impossible, “an energy independent” America. No nation on Earth is energy independent.

Calm Sun, Cold Earth

I can understand why people believe that global warming is real and that all the things Greens say are true. One cannot read a newspaper or magazine, turn on the television or radio, without getting the Green message.

Falsification of the Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within the Frame of Physics

It is my sincere wish that climate alarmism has finally hit the buffers with the definitive and scientific deathknell administered by two German physicists, Dr. Gerhard Gerlich, of the Institute of Mathematical Physics at the Technical University Carolo-Wilhelmina in Braunschweig and Dr. Ralf D. Tscheuschner, co-author of a July 7, 2007 paper titled “Falsification of the Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within the Frame of Physics”.

NYC Mayor Bloomberg compares climate change to terrorism

Excerpt: “So long as there’s no penalty or cost involved in producing greenhouse gases, there will be no incentive” to meet targets set by international institutions, the mayor told the General Assembly. “For that reason, I believe the U.S. should enact a tax on carbon emissions. “Terrorists kill people. Weapons of mass destruction have the potential to kill an enormous amount of people,” Mr. Bloomberg told reporters after addressing the U.N. General Assembly, but “global warming in the long term has the potential to kill everybody.”

End of the tunnel

This is just a short note to let you know that this will be my last memo unless there are some unusual developments. Fifteen years ago I was involved in assisting the people living in terrible conditions along and within the banks of the Jukskei River in Alexandra. Two mothers approached me and asked “Help us please.” I have never forgotten this plea.

The lights may soon go out in Washington, DC—and it could happen where you live, too.
