Morano: 'I've been to Bali, I've been to Cancun, I've been to Kenya, S. Africa twice, to Rio, South America -- exotic locations, very nice places. I've stayed at five-star resorts on the ocean. The UN picks exotic locales in order to attract people to come because not many people would want to go to one in Trenton, NJ' -- 'Morano notes that while he worked for the U.S. Senate, his round-trip, business-class airline ticket (paid for by U.S. taxpayers) was $16,000 in 2006'
'Just as medieval princes secured their power by pledging fealty to Rome, modern heads of state, of whatever political stripe, sometimes find it convenient to bow to the apostles of human induced climate change...Next year, there will be another giant gathering producing another useless communique'
Bjorn Lomborg: "Hurricanes in 2021 were unprecedented — as in unprecedentedly few. Globally, 2021 had the fewest hurricanes ever in the satellite era (1980-2021). Globally, 2021 had some of the fewest strong hurricanes in the satellite era (1980-2021). With 16 strong (Cat 3+) hurricanes, 2021 was the second-lowest strong hurricane year since 1980. Globally, 2021 was a weak hurricane year. When measured by total energy (Accumulated Cyclone Energy), 2021 was the 9th weakest year. Did you see that reported anywhere?
Hurricanes in 2021 were weak and exceptionally few. But we heard lots about North Atlantic hurricanes. Conveniently, North Atlantic is the only basin where hurricanes are stronger. Does this leave us well-informed?. But we hear lots about names storms (hurricanes + weaker storms). Ever-easier to detect, so numbers keep climbing (4 of 2020s 30 named storms wouldn't have been named in 2000!). Not as relevant, but hey, scary numbers."
