Climate Facts or Leaps of Faith? Governments Can’t Tell the Difference
We have no hard evidence of a crisis. Only expert opinion and best estimates.
Dreadful Year End for the UN
If you’re a UN bureaucrat, recent weeks have been full of disappointment.
Oxford University Spreads Fake News
The most reputable publishers imaginable are misinforming the public about basic geology.
The Climate Show Carries On
The Paris climate summit is a gigantic photo op – where ineffectual political leaders will pretend to be environmental superheroes.
(includes details of my Dec. 2 talk in Paris)
Private Jet Airport Hosts Paris Climate Summit
December’s climate conference is being held on the grounds of Europe’s busiest private jet airport. If we were serious about fighting climate change, wouldn’t private jets have been banned long ago?
The Preposterous Green Institute and the IPCC
The man now in charge at the IPCC belongs to a privileged, protected, secretive entity headed by the UN’s former top climate official.
3 Things Scientists Need to Know About the IPCC
Slides and text of my presentation to the World Federation of Scientists, 20 Aug. 2015.
When Emissions Disappear, So Do Jobs
The dirty little secret behind every pie-in-the-sky climate measure is that when emissions disappear, so do jobs, economic opportunities, and human well-being.
Chris Rapley: When Bureaucrats Pose as Climate Scientists
Described as a “professor of climate science,” Chris Rapley has no teaching duties. Described as a “climate scientist,” he has spent decades in administrative roles.
Another Climate Change Ransom Note
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is threatening us with hellfire and damnation. But its conclusions are suspect. Rather than investigating all possible causes of climate change, it’s in the business of pointing a finger at humanity.
Video Interview: Activists & the UN Climate Process
In a 23-minute interview, filmed in the UK last month, I talk about activists and the UN’s climate process.
That Silly Anti-Coal Speech
In the National Post today I argue that the extreme anti-coal stance of UN officials and green activists harms both people and the environment.
Anti-Democratic Green Activism
If the public is to be represented at climate negotiations by someone other than their own government, it has a right to elect and dismiss those representatives.
That Silly Coal Speech
UN officials need to stop dressing up political arguments as science.
The Creepy Climate Conference
After frisking us for explosives, the UN repeatedly assures us that we’re good people.
Today’s Climate Summit Press Conferences
The WWF utilized UN press conference facilities yesterday. It’s doing so again today.
What a Nasty, Scandalously Rigged System
Activist media events are a shockingly institutionalized part of UN climate negotiations.
Initial Dispatch: the Warsaw Climate Summit
If the UN were serious about a new climate treaty, it would turf the activists. They are a distraction no one needs.
Inside the Warsaw Climate Summit
Obama’s imperious behaviour at the 2009 climate summit is a key reason negotiations have failed dismally in recent years.
What Is Christiana Figueres Thinking?
It is improper for a UN official to criticize Australia’s 6-week-old election results.
The Climate Change Echo Chamber
Green activists want to restrict your ability to fly, but they themselves remain addicted to the UN’s pointless annual beach party.
UN Bureaucrats Wield Science for Undemocratic Purposes
UN officials say we should listen to science. Don’t be fooled. It’s a rhetorical ploy, a cover for their own agenda.
The World’s Slowest Learners
UN bureaucrats say climate change is a planetary emergency and that time is running out. So when US senators unanimously rejected the Kyoto Protocol where was Plan B?
Science is Not a Tyrant
Activists, politicians, and journalists love to play the ‘science says’ game when talking about global warming. But scientific facts are one thing. How best to respond to those facts is a completely different discussion – in which we all deserve a voice.
The IPCC as UN Funding Mechanism
You gotta love the UN. The 31-member IPCC bureau includes representatives from undemocratic and unsavoury countries such as Sudan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Malaysia, Madagascar and the Maldives. Soon, these countries may be deciding the fate of billions of UN-administered climate change funds.
The Sneaky, Not-So-Secret Purpose of the IPCC
According to scientists who’ve helped write its reports, the IPCC is not a scientific body first and foremost. Rather, its primary purpose is to lay the necessary groundwork so that an international climate change treaty can be negotiated.
