Dr. Roger Pielke Jr. 'the bottom line on this new NOAA special report: If you are attributing any extreme other than heat waves to Anthropogenic Climate Change, you are on weak (or worse) scientific ground."
A special report "Explaining extreme events of 2013 from a climate perspective" has been published today in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
According to today's Sunday Times, Duke, who took pictures of Earth aboard an Apollo 16 mission in 1972, and later became a Christian, told the conference: "Climate science is bogus. The world has got no warmer for more than 15 years. It is a great irony that the images taken on the Apollo mission have been used in this way. We helped to start it [the environmental movement] but I do not agree with it." Walter Cunningham, who was aboard Apollo 7 in 1968, said: "Climate change is one of the greatest scientific fiascos of all time."
Dr. David Agus, a medical contributor for CBS News and a University of Southern California medical professor: 'Something is happening now. We have multiple viruses. And together with global climate change, things are changing in the virus world and we have to pay attention.'
'Notes the irony of the organizers banning wooden signs, which meant most of the signs were made from petroleum products... puzzled looks on the protesters’ faces when Alex told them their “clothes were fracking.
Morano: 'This is President Obama's moment. He is seeking a treaty or an agreement next year at all costs. It really doesn't matter where China is, where India is; for the first time since the Kyoto protocol was signed back in the 1990s we have a United States committed to signing and making a global treaty happening," Morano reports. "And this is going to get the international community very excited. The United Nations leaders are going to be gaga over this.'
'President Obama -- and John Kerry is seeking a legacy as well -- is going to make an agreement happen next year in Paris. That's a done deal. And of course he wants to bypass the Senate ratification.'
Morano to Rosenberg: 'It's embarrassing. that is medieval witchcraft. we didn't have weather like that until that witch moved next door...You are talking anecdotal claptrap...insipid talking points...This is nonsense. there is no trend in these extreme weather events....You have not done your research...The 97% is a meaningless talking point.'
Ezra Levant: China's 'happy to reduce their carbon emissions – for a price. And that price is $100 billion a year, from the United States, Canada and Europe, paid into a UN fund to be redistributed to China and other beneficiaries. One hundred billion dollars a year. And that’s not all: Western countries must agree to give up intellectual property rights. As in patents. China is engaged in massive industrial sabotage, trying to steal the West’s commercial secrets on everything from cellphones to Hollywood. China – in the name of global warming – simply wants the West to give them that. For free. In the name of “climate change,” you see.'
