Reaction: 'EPA’s hearing session on their proposed guidelines to hammer existing coal plants has to be moved due to electrical outages. Feels a bit like the ‘Gore effect’. Perhaps a harbinger of things to come.'
Temperature standstill for '50.2% of the entire 426-month satellite record'
'This is the longest continuous period without any warming in the global instrumental temperature record since the satellites first watched in 1979. It has endured for more than half the entire satellite temperature record. Yet the lengthening Pause coincides with a continuing, rapid increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration.'
'The possibility that the Pause is occurring because the computer models are simply wrong about the sensitivity of temperature to manmade greenhouse gases can no longer be dismissed'
'On the RSS satellite data, there has been no global warming statistically distinguishable from zero for more than 26 years. None of the models predicted that, in effect, there would be no global warming for a quarter of a century.'
Investor's Business Daily cites Climate Depot: For his questioning of climate orthodoxy, Rossiter, an adjunct professor at American University, was sacked via email from his position with the Institute for Policy Studies...Rossiter doesn't accept these claims, noting "the computer models simply built in the assumption that fossil fuels are the culprit when temperatures rise, even though a similar warming took place from 1900 to 1940, before fossil fuels could have caused it." He also questions the logic behind imposing calamitous human suffering for improvements that are at best infinitesimal for global temperatures. "Computer models used by the U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to determine the cause of the six-tenths of one degree Fahrenheit rise in global temperature from 1980 to 2000 could not statistically separate fossil-fueled and natural trends," he writes. Rossiter has also ripped President Obama's climate claims. In a 2013 blog post, he said the president "has long been delusional on this issue, speaking of a coming catastrophe and seeing himself as King Canute, stopping the rise in sea level."
Professor's fellowship 'terminated' after WSJ OpEd declaring ‘the left wants to stop industrialization—even if the hypothesis of catastrophic, man-made global warming is false’
Climate Statistics Prof. Caleb Rossiter: 'If people ever say that fears of censorship for ‘climate change’ views are overblown, have them take a look at this. Just two days after I published a piece in the Wall Street Journal calling for Africa to be allowed the ‘all of the above’ energy strategy we have in the U.S., the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS) terminated my 23-year relationship with them...because my analysis and theirs ‘diverge.’
IPS email of 'termination' to Rossiter: 'We would like to inform you that we are terminating your position as an Associate Fellow of the Institute for Policy Studies...Unfortunately, we now feel that your views on key issues, including climate science, climate justice, and many aspects of U.S. policy to Africa, diverge so significantly from ours'
Morano: 'Aussie Prime Minister Abbott is launching an effort to get Canada, UK, New Zealand and India and other center right countries to abandon CO2 pricing. I should have brought some champagne and wine glasses. This is a big deal.'
'We in the U.S. have it backwards, hopefully this is an anomaly, we will see what happens in the next election. I don’t have a lot of hope for the Republican Party, they are very weak on this issue and very weak on environmental issues.'
Morano in Aljazeera TV debate: 'The goal of focusing on a trace essential gas in the atmosphere as the big boogeyman and then altering all our policy to fit that -- is wrong! The CO2 cuts should not be our destination, our destination should be economic growth, jobs and energy abundance...They are laughing as we shoot ourselves in the foot with Hocus Pokus science -- meaning that EPA regulations are somehow going to affect future floods, droughts, hurricanes. It won’t even affect global CO2 levels in the end given how much developing world is advancing.'
'This will evolve in 3 years, 5 years, from now. Once you give them expanded bureaucratic power -- there is no limit. There is no limit of where future bureaucracies will go. It will be up to the whims and dictates of future bureaucrats.'
'Ultimately this is centrally planned from the U.S. government, at a time when Spain and Europe is walking away from green jobs, at a time when Germany is becoming more dependent on coal fired power.'
'It is not going to achieve anything for the climate, it won’t even achieve global CO2 reductions. It’s pure symbolism. And it’s not an insurance policy against global warming. If this were an insurance policy, the premium would cost more than any benefits you would ever get out of it.'
