'The scale of the problem demands a revolution in thought and action. Pioneering climate scientist James Hansen, who recently quit his job at NASA so he could protest more effectively, is calling for a 'human tipping point.'
'Why is the IPCC so certain that the 5 percent human contribution is responsible for annual increases in carbon dioxide levels?'
Atmospheric physicist Murry Salby: 'In Salby’s view, the evidence actually suggests that the causality underlying AGW should be reversed. Rather than increased levels of CO2 in the atmosphere triggering global temperatures to rise, rising global temperatures come first—and account for the great majority of changes in net emissions of CO2, with changes in soil-moisture conditions explaining most of the rest.'
'Temperature appears more likely to be the cause, rather than the effect, of observed atmospheric changes.' -- 'Salby hasn’t been working in a vacuum. Swedish climate scientist Pehr Björnbom has replicated his finding that temperature drives CO2 emission. University of Oslo geosciences professor Ole Humlum published a landmark 2012 paper demonstrating that changes of CO2 follow changes of temperature, implying the same cause and effect.'
'As an academic critic of the science on which AGW rests, Murry Salby may have been silenced for now. The observed behavior of nature, from which he draws his analysis, cannot be dismissed so readily.'
"I'm not a scientist, but I play one on TV," says Marc Morano, a man frequently cited as a specialist on climate change. Merchants of Doubt explores the shadowy world of purported experts who stake claims contrary to scientific consensus. Their efforts have spread confusion and delayed action over cigarettes and toxic chemicals.
Principal Cast: Naomi Oreskes, Bob Inglis, James Hansen, Stan Glantz, Marc Morano
Morano on Ezra Levant's The Source on Sun News Canada promotes Climate Hustle: 'In the words of Muhammad Ali during the heyday of his boxing career, 'We are going to have the greatest climate documentary of a-l-l-l-l ti-i-i-i-ime!
‘We are putting together the most comprehensive, unique, entertaining and humorous climate documentary that has ever been attempted!’
'We are going to take on the global warming establishment with satire, humor and science...We are going to feature climate astrology, climate contradictory predictions, climate tipping points. We have a spoof, a send off of the Al Gore CO2 climate elevator scene from Inconvenient Truth -- we spoof the exact scene.
After the deal was announced, you might think that Gore would have chosen to modulate his criticism of the oil industry, given his personal debt to Qatar crude. Wrong. That month, Gore went on NBC's "Today" to promote his book, "The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change." In the book, Gore wrote, "Virtually every news and political commentary program on television is sponsored in part by oil, coal and gas companies" - like that was a bad thing.
'Since 1970 -- the period over which climate scientists tell us the impacts of anthropogenic climate change should be most evident -- there has been a statistically significant declining -- not increasing -- trend in the number of forest fires across Canada'
'Overall, there appears to be no evidence that the climate change induced forest fire apocalypse is upon us in Canada, a fact which agrees with the trends in the United States and other analyses of climate data in these two countries.'
Amanda Renteria, a Democrat challenging Rep. David Valadao (R).: 'Climate change doesn't really belong in the question, or answer,' said Renteria, one of her party’s best hopes of gaining a House seat this fall.
'Campaign isn’t focused on pinning the drought to the effects of global warming. It’s focused on how federal and state officials were unprepared to deal with the drought, and how Central Valley lawmakers should have pushed Congress to take steps to build water storage infrastructure to help farmers.'
Some scientists believe global warming—and the subsequent increase in extreme weather—could be a factor behind in the virus's ascendance.
"If you are going to get more severe dry spells followed by heavy rains that might lead to more outbreaks," William Karesh, the executive vice-president for health and policy at the EcoHealth Alliance, told CNBC on Thursday.
Steyer: 'I think if you were to go around to most of the — what I would think of as super-sophisticated people who think about politics and policy more than five minutes a month — we are doing really well,” Steyer said today at a conference in Aspen, Colorado, hosted by the American Renewable Energy Institute.'
New York Times - June 29, 1976: 'Cool periods produce greater climate instability. Climatic events are then more extreme. Climate is a worldwide, integrated system. Significant changes cannot take place in one part without other changes occurring in other places.'
The first film in the series, titled "Carbon," calls for more federal action to control carbon dioxide pollution. We cannot sit idly by and watch the fossil fuel industry make billions at our collective expense. We must put a price on carbon — now,” DiCaprio said in a statement. The eight-minute long film argues that a tax should be placed on carbon in order to keep global temperatures below 2 degrees Celsius.
Leonardo DiCaprio:'We no longer need the dead economy of the fossil fuel industry.'
'DiCaprio and climate scientists argue that coal, natural gas and other carbon-based forms of energy are a "monster" that has created catastrophic surges in the earth’s surface temperature. In response, some lawmakers around the world are tinkering with ways to make carbon more expensive, and sustainable forms of energy — such as wind power — cheap.'
Consumers warned to “act quickly” before top-rated powerful vacuum cleaners sell out forever - Households wanting to buy a powerful model have been told they will need to “act quickly” before they sell out, as from September 1 companies will be prohibited from manufacturing or importing any vacuums with motors above 1,600 watts. The European Commission claims that its new rules, which are intended to help tackle climate change by cutting Europe’s energy usage, will mean consumers “get better vacuum cleaners than ever before”. However, Which? said that many of the models that its reviewers rate as the best on the market will fall foul of the rules.
'In just three weeks, we were able to surpass our initial funding goal of $50,000 for the production of our groundbreaking Climate Hustle film. This exciting CFACT project has clearly struck a nerve, as people are fed up with Green climate propaganda and hungry for an informative documentary that will take apart global warming myths – and do it in a unique style sure to entertain and amuse!'
