Climate Change
Man-made climate change due to the "pollutant" carbon dioxide (CO2) will destroy civilization! We must take drastic measures to save the planet now! This has been the multi-decade international campaign of some scientists, Hollywood types, leftist politicians and the media, popularized by the 2006 documentary film with Al Gore, "An Inconvenient Truth". The upcoming 5th Assessment report [AR5] of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is being trumpeted as further proof (they are now 95% sure of man-made global warming). The Gray Area actually believes that humans are doing harm to the environment, but the facts don't support that climate change is affected by humans. This is not just from the 2009 "climategate" scandal, but a growing number of scientists also agree. This will come as heresy to the leftists who have built their belief systems or careers on this campaign, but it is nonetheless true - facts don't support the claim. The Global Warming Primer, Second Edition, by the NCPA provides counterpoints to the film's message. "The fact is that CO2 is not a pollutant. CO2 is a colorless and odorless gas, exhaled at high concentrations by each of us, and a key component of the biosphere's life cycle. Plants do so much better with more CO2 that greenhouse operators often increase the CO2 concentrations by factors of three or four to get better growth. This is no surprise since plants and animals evolved when CO2 concentrations were about 10 times larger than they are today." The Earth has had cyclical weather patterns since its creation. Ice sheets covered and retreated around the globe four times. We are currently in the 5th warming cycle over the last 400,000 years, and it is the least severe, according to "The Big Picture" at There is scientific data ad-nausea-um on the subject of climate change at that site. So why the high volume messaging that man-made climate change exists - follow the money and the political advantage that comes from it. Government funding for academic research, growth of government bureaucracies, excuse for raising taxes, tax payer funded subsidies and a big lure for charitable donations. So, as you read the left and right positions on climate change below, remember, the truth is "petroleum saved the whales", "coal saved the forests" and "wealthier is healthier".

Apocalypse Never!

from CFACT,
Climate alarmists are convinced they can somehow ride the Black Lives Matter wave to victory. Let's be real. The real agenda of the Green Left isn't about saving humanity. And, its not about racial justice. The real agenda of the Green Left is to advance socialism and destroy free enterprise - in America and around the world. The future of our country is in danger. Our freedom is threatened as never before. Author Michael Shellenberger's new book, Apocalypse Never" Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All is a national best seller. The left labels him a "climate denier" or "corporate shill". He is neither. He is a 30 year environmental activist. In a recent open letter published in Forbes, Shellenberger said "I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the past 30 years". Here is what he says in the book:
  • Humans are not causing a "sixth mass extinction".
  • The Amazon is not "the lungs of the world".
  • Climate Change is not making natural disasters worse. The buildup of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explains why there are more, and more dangerous, fires in Australia and California.
  • Nevertheless, fires overall have declined 25% around the world since 2003.
  • The amount of land we use for meat - human kinds biggest use of land- has declined by an area nearly as large as Alaska.
  • Carbon emissions have been declining in rich nations for decades and peaked in Britain, Germany and France in the mid-seventies.
  • We produce 25% more food than we need and good surpluses will continue to rise as the world gets warmer.
  • Habitat loss and the direct killing of wild animals are bigger threats to species than climate change.
Even in Michael Moore's new movie, Planet of the Humans, he reveals that not only are industrial wind farms, solar farms, biomass and biofuels wrecking natural environments, but they are also themselves the product of fossil fuels and as sustained by them! More From CFACT:
