Kenneth Richard: The increasing loss of ozone (O3) from 3o°N – 30°S has steadily accelerated since the early 1980s despite the 1987 Montreal Protocol’s ban on so-called “ozone depleting substances” like chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). Once again this suggests human activity does not drive ozone losses. ... With the new measured evidence, a leading ozone researcher proclaimed the scientific “understanding of chloride chemistry has really been blown apart,” as “we can basically no longer say we understand how ozone holes come into being.” ...
The ozone hole narrative and the presumption that governmental policies are what determine how small or large the hole gets would appear to be analogous to the current climate debate and its connection to the governmental push to dramatically limit CO2 emissions.
Lindzen: "If you are going to blame everything on carbon dioxide, you have to explain why, on all timescales, temperatures in the tropics are extremely stable while those in high latitudes are much more variable. The IPCC's story is that small amounts of greenhouse warming near the equator are 'amplified' at high latitudes. But neither theory nor data support the idea of amplification."
World Bank Pres. David Malpass refused to respond directly to the question of whether he accepted the scientific consensus that the burning of fossil fuels is “rapidly and dangerously warming the planet,” The Independent reported.
After being asked multiple times about his views on man-made climate change, Malpass responded to the question by saying, “I don’t know. I’m not a scientist,” reported Bloomberg.
Prof. David Deming: "We’re not currently in any kind of environmental crisis. The supposed climate crisis is a hoax, and the incessant doom-mongering by an ignorant mob of radical left-wing activists is tiresome." ...
"We’re now subjected to an onslaught of radical ideology masquerading as science...Climate research and reporting have largely degenerated into a parody of itself. Global warming has been blamed for volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, and war in Syria. It has been claimed that climate change will cause dogs to become depressed, increase the incidence of rape, turn human beings into hobbits, and cause snakes to grow as large as buses. The latest absurdity is the theory that climate change is responsible for childhood obesity. The list of this nonsense is virtually endless. Global warming is a hypothesis that can never be falsified. Every data point has to be contorted into conformity with a rigid ideology. Even cold weather is said to be symptomatic of a warming climate."
Historically, cold weather has proven more inimical for the human species than warm...The increased concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is fertilizing plant growth and “greening” the planet."
Marc Morano comment: "As I wrote in my book, The Great Reset, the public health bureaucracy and the 'climate community' have become political lobbying organizations, and they are using 'The Science' to support their preferred policies—policies that dovetail with the Great Reset and advance the power of the administrative state." The UN now joins Anthony 'I am The Science' Fauci in claiming ownership of science."
There’s no statistical or physical reason to produce a chart or data analysis of only Atlantic hurricanes starting in 1970 or 1980. We have data records going back to the 19th century, with reasonable reliability back to 1945, especially with landfalls.
NOAA: "There is no strong evidence of century scale increasing trends in: U.S. landfalling hurricanes, frequency of hurricanes or major hurricanes, or the proportion of hurricanes that reach major hurricane intensity."
Wash Post: For the first time, the United States is designating a special diplomat to advocate for global biodiversity amid what policymakers here and overseas increasingly recognize as an extinction crisis. Monica Medina is taking on a new role as special envoy for biodiversity and water resources, the State Department announced Wednesday. ... The appointment underscores the Biden administration’s desire to protect land and waters not just at home but to also conserve habitats abroad. ‘Not just about nature for nature’s sake’ ... Medina noted that the Inflation Reduction Act passed this year set aside billions of dollars for conservation funding. ... “It's a crisis that we face that's interwoven with the climate crisis, but also independent and important on its own,” she said. “If we can solve the biodiversity crisis, we're a long way along the way to solving the climate crisis.”
The grift is on! The State Department's new 'diplomat for plants & animals' just happens to be the wife of Biden's White House chief of Staff Ron Klain. Imagine the coincidence!
