UK LABOUR PEER URGES HIS PARTY TO DITCH ITS OBSESSION WITH CLIMATE CHANGE
Policy

Posted 9 December 2016

Former UK Labour Party Minister, Lord Donoughue has urged his party to ditch its climate change obsession: "In 2008, I was one of the many members of both houses who unquestionably voted for Ed Miliband's Climate Change Act, with its legal commitments to rapidly decarbonise the British economy. The measure was not properly costed (now forecast at upwards of £360bn by 2050). I had not studied the Bill. This seemed a noble, if eye-wateringly ambitious project: to 'save the planet'. Who could object to that? I decided to study climate change. The more I explored it, the more I began to question what was being claimed by the evangelical climate change movement, and especially how the Labour Party was resonding."

HEARTLAND INSTITUTE RE-CONFIRMS 2013 SUBMISSION TO BRITISH HOUSE OF COMMONS
Science

Posted 9 December 2016

The Heartland Institute has just up-dated and reformatted a written submission it made to the Commons Select Committee of the British Parliament in October 2013, in response to an inquiry into the findings of the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) as published in its Fifth Assessment Report (AR5). In answer to the Committee's question: "How robust are the conclusions in the AR5 Physical Science Basis report?", Heartland responded: "The conclusions are not robust. Although the IPCC's reports are voluminous and their arguments persistent, the claims of rising confidence in attributing effects to human greenhouse gas emissions and predictions of future warming and climate change are not supported by scientific evidence."

Three years on, this response remains more relevant than ever.

HOW AND WHY PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN PULL U.S. OUT OF U.N. GLOBAL WARMING SCARES
Policy

Posted 3 December 2016

"As long as America remains an active participant in the [UN Framework Convention on Climate Change], future administrations will be under pressure to ratify new Convention agreements, and billions of dollars will continue to be wasted. The President-elect must put a final and definite end to America's involvement in the U.N. climate scare by formally withdrawing from the root cause of the problem - the hopelessly flawed [FCCC]."  Tom Harris, of the International Climate Science Coalition writes at the Daily Caller

CHINA BURNS MORE COAL TO AVOID ELECTRICITY BLACKOUTS
Policy

Posted 3 December 2016

"China is scrambling to mine and burn more coal. A lack of stockpiles and worries about electricity blackouts are spurring Chinese officials to reverse curbs that once helped reduce coal production. Mines are reopening. Miners are being lured back with fatter paychecks. China's response to coal scarcity shows how hard it will be to wean the country off coal." Keith Bradsher writes in the New York Times.

Science

Posted 28 November 2016

"Global average temperatures over land have plummeted by more than 1C since the middle of this year - their biggest and steepest fall on record. The news comes amid mounting evidence that the recent run of world high temperatures is about to end. The fall, revealed by NASA satellite measurements in the lower atmosphere, has been caused by the end of El Nino - the warming of surface waters in a vast area of the Pacific [ocean] west of Central America."

SCIENCE IS A PROCESS OF DISCOVERY, NOT AN END RESULT
Science

Posted 28 November 2016

"The climate-change debate has many people wondering whether we should really turn over public policy  - which deals with fundamental matters of human freedom - to a state-appointed scientific establishment. Must moral imperatives give way to the judgement of technical experts in natural sciences? Shoild we trust their authorioty? Their power? There is a real history here to consult. The integration of governmental policy and scientific establishments has reinforced bad science and yielded ghastly policies."  Earlier this year, Jeffrey Tucker, posted at the Foundation for Economic Education an article explaining that science is a process of discovery not an end result.
