'We are on pace for one of the quietest tornadoes years in the last decade and with respect to land falling major hurricanes in the US, an unprecedented streak in the record-keeping era continues through yet another tropical season.'
'So it is no surprise the university has harbored one of the world's most knowledgeable climate change skeptics, despite relentless efforts by media types, billionaire activists and the Obama administration to silence and destroy him. Prof. Roger Pielke, Jr., has long been a professor in the Environmental Studies Program at CU. He has won impressive awards, served a fellowship at Oxford, and earned other professional credentials and accolades too numerous to list here. We don't know or care about Pielke's political views. We only know he is a man genuinely devoted to scientific discovery.'
Pielke's article reporters and publications who blacklisted him for documenting how climate change was not causing more intense or more frequent natural disasters. After Los Angeles Times Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Paige St. John quoted Pielke, she "was pilloried by her peers in the media."
That's a problem for Big Global Warming, a quasi-industry of activists, special-interest journalists and politicians who drive funding by claiming each tornado, hurricane and blizzard proves urgent need to publicly fund more research.
LA Times - David Helvarg: 'When Floridians narrowly voted for Donald Trump on Nov. 8, they might as well have elected to drown themselves. Rising seas and accelerating storms are inundating this low-lying state, but a majority of its citizens still chose a presidential candidate who calls climate change a hoax.'
Bravo! The constituents get it, slam city council for blaming all woes on "global warming."
"City Council Vice Chairwoman Darden Rice told me that when she tried to explain the link between sewage spills, seawater intrusion, increased rains and climate change, one of her constituents told her to 'stop talking about climate change and just fix the damn sewer plant.'”
Then there's this from Climate Depot: Princeton physicist William Happer says that "if global warming were any other branch of science it would have been abandoned a long time ago." Climate scientists are, of course, obsessed with man's carbon dioxide emissions. But Happer says this is essentially nonsense. "All of the geological evidence indicates that CO2 is a minor player" in previous eras of warming, he said last week in a Climate Depot podcast. "We've had ice ages with 10 times more CO2 than we have today. That's not supposed to happen, according to current computer models, but it did happen."
Scientist quits research after attacks by Media, activists & Obama Admin: ‘My Unhappy Life as a Climate Heretic’
'My research was attacked by thought police in journalism, activist groups funded by billionaires and even the White House.'
'My research led me to a conclusion that many climate campaigners find unacceptable: There is scant evidence to indicate that hurricanes, floods, tornadoes or drought have become more frequent or intense in the U.S. or globally. In fact we are in an era of good fortune when it comes to extreme weather. This is a topic I’ve studied and published on as much as anyone over two decades.'
In an interview with Reuters in September, Pruitt said he sees the Clean Power Plan as a form of federal "coercion and commandeering" of energy policy and that his state should have "sovereignty to make decisions for its own markets."
'We keep seeing individuals appointed to transition positions, considered for major environmental posts, or acting as advisers who have previously also expressed doubt about key aspects of the science of climate change, or opposed various types of action on the problem.'
