"The 'average' world temperature for June 2018 was +0.21 deg C above the 1981 – 2010 mean. That represented a decline of about 0.65 deg C from the all-time high of this 39-year record, which was reached in early 2016. The 0.65 deg C decline represented more than 75% of the amount by which the average temperature had exceeded the 1981 – 2010 mean at the highest point. Suddenly the fact that some large number of “all-time highs” was being set at the end of June does not seem very significant."
"Accelerating sea level rise due to global warming is supposed to eat away at the shorelines across the globe. However, a recent paper published in the journal Nature here authored by a team scientists led by Arjen Luijendijk found that some 75% of the world’s sandy shorelines are stable or growing!
An analysis of satellite-derived shoreline data indicates that 24% of the world’s sandy beaches are eroding at rates exceeding 0.5 m/yr, but 28% are accreting and 48% are stable.
Also, erosion rates exceed 5 m/yr along 4% of the sandy shoreline and are greater than 10 m/yr for 2% of the global sandy shoreline."
'Morano documents the false use of statistics behind the fraudulent claim 97 percent of scientists agree humans are causing catastrophic climate change'
Richard Lindzen of MIT concurs, saying in Senate testimony in 2007 “controlling carbon is a bureaucrat’s dream. If you control carbon, you control life.”
'Funding from governments and billionaire donors dwarfs the financial support for real science in the climate change debate.'
“It’s just the most recent in a long chain of eco-scares—overpopulation, deforestation, the ozone hole, resource scarcity, and so forth—for which the solution is always the same: global regulation by central planners,” Morano writes.
Morano also uses the centuries of existing data to expose pseudo-scientists’ attempts to scare the public about rising seas.
Morano also exposes unethical scientists’ attempts to fool the public into believing some of our recent years have been the warmest on record
Morano takes the reader step-by-step through Pennsylvania State University climate scientist Michael Mann’s development of his notorious “hockey stick”
'Warmer waters off Rhode Island have caused a spike for this species, and loosened regulations are reeling fisherman in...Commercial fishing value for the fish has tripled in 9 years to more than $12 million'
Alan Carlin: "It has become evident that the Pruitt EPA did not want to challenge the scientific climate “consensus,” either because they did not think that they could win the ensuing battle or because they wanted to avoid angering voters who accept the scientific “consensus” on climate."
'Jamie Margolin can’t remember a time in her life when climate change wasn’t a crisis.'...
She decided to mobilize a youth climate march in Washington, D.C., on July 21, and along with three fellow teen co-founders, launched the organization Zero Hour to emphasize the urgency needed to act on climate change. A diverse group of students is spearheading the march. They’ve created a platform shared exclusively with HuffPost that recognizes the environmental impact of climate change on marginalized communities such as indigenous, homeless, queer and trans people, communities of color, and people with disabilities...
“You really can’t fight for climate justice without fighting all of these other systems of oppression, because those systems of oppression are why we’re here in the first place,” said Margolin. More than 40 groups have endorsed the movement, including the global grassroots climate organization 350.org, which described the upcoming event as the largest youth-of-color-organized climate march in U.S. history.

Morano: 'Kids from kindergarten through college are prime targets for the climate change fear promoters’ propaganda.'
'Black and brown people are essentially being told they can never be allowed to have the same standard of living that the predominantly white Western world has enjoyed since the Industrial Revolution.'
'It’s not enough for the warmists to regulate our light bulbs, coal plants, and SUVs. Now they want to regulate the size of our families.'
Morano: "If you look at actual data, in 2003, in the month of August, in Europe, 35,000 people died, 14,000 in France alone, from a heat wave. Widely blamed on the fact they didn't have enough air-conditioning and air-conditioning wasn't widely available. So as we go forward, you look back to the 1930s, thousands died in heat waves. Heat waves kill. Air-conditioning saves lives."
“Over time the fervent deniers [of human-influenced climate change] are being pushed out” of the administration, says David Bookbinder, chief counsel at the Niskanen Center, a Washington think tank promoting an open and free society.
In April, Milloy was in the audience at EPA headquarters when Pruitt proposed a rule that would restrict some types of science that the agency can use to craft regulations. A smile beamed across this face. Major science organizations point out that the rule would exclude some of the most important air pollution studies ever conducted, because they use data that are unavailable to the public.
Milloy celebrated with Marc Morano, who tweets under the moniker @ClimateDepot and works for the conservative Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow. They were in the Rachel Carson Green Room, named after the famed environmentalist, who Milloy said "misrepresented the existing science on bird reproduction and was wrong about DDT causing cancer."
