The Jailbird Architect of Obama’s Global Warming Plan

By |

For nearly two decades, John Beale could do no wrong at the EPA even though he did no work. He flew around the world pretending to be a CIA agent and bilking taxpayers, according to his guilty plea, out of $900,000. While the media played the Beale story mostly for laughs, researchers in Senator David Vitter’s office did the serious investigative work of figuring out why Beale walked on water at the EPA.

With Nod to Sovereignty, Trump Dumps UN “Climate” Regime

By |

Trump offered many reasons for his decision. He praised the U.S. Constitution, saying it was his “highest honor” to protect it, and that he always would do so. And in an exceedingly rare development for U.S. presidents of recent memory, Trump also touted and defended U.S. sovereignty. “There are serious legal and constitutional issues as well,” Trump said. “Foreign leaders in Europe, Asia and across the world should not have more to say with respect to the U.S. economy than our own citizens and their elected representatives. Thus, our withdrawal from the agreement represents a reassertion of America’s sovereignty.” Perhaps most stunning was the sharp rebuke he gave of the Paris Agreement itself, which he described as essentially a giant scam to rip off the American people to benefit foreign powers and special interests.

Tesla Car Batteries Not Even Remotely Green…

By |

The car batteries used in a Tesla generate as much CO2 as driving a gasoline-powered car for eight years. And that’s before they even come off the production line.

Democrats and Environmentalists argue for ExxonMobil ‘ preferred environmental  policy.

By |

Oil giants ExxonMobil (XOM, +1.50%) and ConocoPhillips (COP, +2.51%) were among companies that reiterated their support for the accord ahead of Trump’s announcement, reports Bloomberg.

“Energy needs are a function of population and living standards,” Exxon CEO Darren Woods said at the company’s annual investor meeting in Dallas Wednesday, according to Bloomberg. Woods’ position in favor of staying in the deal is the same as his predecessor, current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The big picture: 65 million years of temperature swings « JoNova

By |

On both graphs, colder temperatures are toward the bottom, and warmer temperatures toward the top. Significant temperature events on the first graph show the start and end of Antarctic glaciation 34 and 25 million years ago, and the resumption of glaciation about 13 million years ago. It is obvious from the graph that we are now living in the coldest period of Earth’s history for the last 65 million years. Despite recent rumors of global warming, we are actually in a deep freeze.

California’s endless winter: 8 feet of snow still on the ground in June

By |

Earlier this year, the snowpack throughout the Sierra rivaled, and in places exceeded, records set during the massive winter of 1982-83. As of June 6, the amount of snow on the ground in the central Sierra region was twice as much as usual, marking its biggest June snowpack in years, the California Department of Water Resources said. In late winter and early spring, the snowpack was as large as it had been in decades.

Obama-Backed Green Energy Company Goes Bankrupt

By |

Abengoa, which Bloomberg has referred to as Spain’s “Teetering Sun King,” got $2.7 billion in DOE loan guarantees since 2010 for two solar energy projects and a massive cellulosic biofuels plant that has yet to announce production levels or sell any product it produces. These projects were financed with subsidized loans from the Treasury Department’s Federal Financing Bank (FFB).

Coal industry could be in store for a ‘rare earth’ reboot

By |

“The U.S. uses about 15,000 tons of rare earth elements every year, with about 800 tons of that going to the defense industry, he said. “And that’s for high-performance radars, sensors, magnets, some very specialized applications that [should] rely on a strategic reserve in this country.”

In 2016 alone, the U.S. imported more than one-half of its supply of 50 types of minerals, eight of which are identified as rare earth elements critical to the economy, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Of those 50 minerals, the U.S. was 100 percent dependent on imports for 20 of them, including all eight critical and rare earth minerals. “
