Heartland's James Taylor: 'Few objective climate experts will take this report seriously. Even those scientists who are not overtly affiliated with environmental activist groups were almost uniformly on the record as global warming alarmists before being chosen to write this report. The only real surprise in the report is it didn’t take the opportunity to trumpet the Union of Concerned Scientists’ call for U.S. unilateral nuclear disarmament.
“It would take a whole squadron of environmental activists years to come up with the whoppers told in this report. The report falsely asserts that global warming is causing more extreme weather events, more droughts, more record high temperatures, more wildfires, warmer winters, etc., when each and every one of these false assertions is contradicted by objective, verifiable evidence. It reads like a press release from The Nature Conservancy and the Union of Concerned Scientists – probably because it essentially is a press release from The Nature Conservancy and the Union of Concerned Scientists.'

“The Obama administration’s climate report comes at a time when numerous polls demonstrate that climate change is a low priority for most Americans. A Wall Street Journal/NBC poll in January found climate change ranked last on a list of l5 issues when people were asked what the administration should make its priorities.
“What a different nation America could be were it not for Obama’s deliberate attack on the coal industry and other fossil fuels sources. In the name of reducing emissions climatologists believe play a minor role in climate change, Obama deliberately ignores the increasing use of coal in nations like China, Japan, and India. Nothing the U.S. does will impact the climate when the use of fossil fuels by other nations is factored in.”
