Greg Demme - The Dakotan excerpt:Morano related more than a dozen different topics on which peer-reviewed scientific studies reported exactly opposite conclusions. For example, he demonstrated, climate change is reported to cause less rain, and more rain (but with less water); more floods, fewer floods; more drought, less drought; more Antarctic ice, less Antarctic ice; more colorful autumn leaves, less colorful autumn leaves. The list went on. “Global warming causes more crime. But reduction in crime leads to more global warming.” He concluded, “Predict both (or all) outcomes, and you are always right.” Summing up his talk, Morano stated, “My message is, ‘How many times do we have to save the planet?’ Al Gore, John Kerry, Barack Obama, the UN, all said we saved the planet when we signed the Paris agreement. Then two years later they’re saying we have to do it all over again. There’s no way to actually say we’ve done it.” He concluded, “It’s all about control.”
Morano’s newest book, Green Fraud: Why the Green New Deal Is Even Worse Than You Think, is a complete takedown of the so-called Green New Deal, exposing it for the complete lie that it is. Morano’s style of accessible prose combined with an extremely organized narrative is the antithesis of the way climate alarmists work. While the climatistas use confusing scientific language combined with over-the-top fearmongering in order to get the masses to throw up their hands and beg to be saved, Morano refutes the madness with cold, hard logic laid out in easy-to-access sections. ...
Interspersed throughout the narrative are quotes and anecdotes that Morano uses to further make his point that the climate-change movement is more political than scientific; more fearmongering and prevarication than reliance on reason or scientific fact.
Today’s levels of roughly four hundred parts per million (PPM) of CO2 are not alarming. In geologic terms, today’s CO2 levels are among the lowest in earth’s history.
“Climate change is governed by hundreds of factors or variables, and the very idea that we can manage climate change predictably by understanding and manipulating at the margins one politically selected factor (CO2), is as misguided as it gets. It’s scientific nonsense,” University of London professor emeritus Philip Stott has noted.
Atmospheric scientist Hendrik Tennekes, a pioneer in the development of numerical weather prediction and former director of research at the Netherlands’ Royal National Meteorological Institute, declared: “I protest vigorously the idea that the climate reacts like a home heating system to a changed setting of the thermostat: just turn the dial, and the desired temperature will soon be reached.”
Chapter 3 Excerpt: This chapter will take the reader through the facts on the claims about climate, energy, and the environment from the media, UN, and Green New Deal advocates. Princeton professor emeritus of physics Will Happer explained why climate activists are wrong. “Aside from the human brain, the climate is the most complex thing on the planet. The number of factors that influence climate—the sun, the earth’s orbital properties, oceans, clouds, and, yes, industrial man—is huge and enormously variable,” Happer said.
The global warming coalition can accurately be called climate change cause deniers. They deny the hundreds of causes and variables that influence climate change and instead try to pretend that carbon dioxide is the climate control knob overriding all the other factors and that every bad weather event is somehow “proof” of “global warming” and an impending climate “emergency.”
Steamboat Institute CEO and Chairwoman Jennifer Schubert-Akin said organizers concluded that “either you’re going to sell all of our books, or you’re going to sell none of our books.” ... “Steamboat Institute is traditionally proud to partner with local bookstores to sell the latest compelling books by Freedom Conference speakers at the event,” she said in a statement. “Yet we will never allow partner bookstores to censor by picking and choosing which speaker books they sell based on their political preferences. We look forward to working with local bookstores committed to robust and open debate at our future events.”
Off the Beaten Path, the Steamboat Springs bookstore, declined to comment on its refusal to offer “Green Fraud,” but Mr. Bruneau cited an email from the company saying it was unwilling to be “associated with a title that disputes the reality of climate change." “They said, ‘Look, Colorado’s wildfires, we can’t sell this, we can’t give credence to this belief,’” Mr. Bruneau said. “So Jennifer said, ‘We don’t support censorship, we can’t accept your services.’ They still wanted to come but they wouldn’t sell that one book.”

"With so much ballyhoo, it’s become easy to miss the central, implacable fact about the Green New Deal: It does not exist. By this, I don’t mean that it hasn’t passed. I mean something more fundamental: Nobody has written it down. Three years after the idea of a Green New Deal broke into the mainstream, you can’t find an authoritative and detailed list of Green New Deal policies anywhere. There is no handbook, no draft legislation, no official report that articulates what belongs in a Green New Deal and what doesn’t. This is more than just an academic point. It means that tens of thousands of Americans want very badly to see Congress adopt a political program that definitionally cannot pass, because there is no “it” for lawmakers to vote on. It means that Biden’s infrastructure package cannot be compared with the Green New Deal, because the contrast will not find purchase. It means that at a moment of historic possibility, American climate politics still has one leg stuck in the spectral and symbolic, when it should be knee-deep in the real."
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!
