Not content with letting the radical Greens do this work for him, Mr Putin decided to give them a helping hand. Alarmed by the fall in the gas price that America’s shale revolution promised, he told a global economic conference in 2013 that “black stuff comes out of the tap” when you frack near people’s homes, an absurd claim that not even Friends of the Earth would dare make. Russian support for anti-fracking campaigns over the past decade took the form of...some overt political lobbying by the country’s Gazprom and Russian money almost certainly finding its way into the coffers of environmental pressure groups. ...
The Center for Strategic and International Studies, a think tank based in Washington DC, published a report that concluded: “Russian-supported consultancies in Europe may be helping some of the environmental groups opposed to hydraulic fracturing”.
Climate Depot's Marc Morano: "How about this?: No ban on Russian oil & gas until the U.S. lifts its sanctions against U.S. domestic energy. Any Congressional bill to ban Russian energy should include lifting of all climate-related sanctions on U.S. homegrown energy! It’s time to stop the sanctions — against American domestic energy!"
In 2020 the last year of the Trump presidency, the American economy reached a long-desired goal, energy independence. However, during Biden’s first days in the White House, he signed executive orders stopping drilling on federal land, including the much-desired drilling at ANWR in Alaska. He canceled the Keystone XL pipeline and recently announced is considering shutting down the L5 pipeline running from Michigan to Canada. . These executive orders sent energy companies a message that he intended to keep his promise to kill the fossil fuel industry. don’t ask OPEC
Stephen Moore: Coal is by far the largest source of energy in China, and new plants are being built every week. This is, as the Telegraph put it, “Beijing’s dirtiest little secret.” Despite those solemn pledges for China to clean up its air, the Chinese emit three to four times more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere each year than the U.S. ...

Thanks to the shale oil and gas revolution, the U.S. has access to more oil and gas (and coal) than any other nation. We have many hundreds of years of energy supply. Now that the rest of the world is thirsting for U.S. oil, gas, and coal, the Left wants to shut down all domestic production by 2035, even though our fossil fuels are the cleanest. So, instead of the world’s energy coming from the U.S., it will come from Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the OPEC nations.
The lawsuit against the state of Montana was filed by 16 children who ranged in ages of two to 18 when it was filed in March 2020
The youngsters argue that Montana's continuous use of fossil fuels has contributed to the climate crisis
The children are not looking for a lump sum of money, but, if the court rules in their favor, the group wants defendants to 'bring the state energy system into constitutional compliance,’ the March 2020 filing states.
The file includes stories about each plaintiff that describes how the climate crisis has impacted them personally
The youngest of the group, Nathaniel, was two at the time of the filing - he is now four years old. Nathaniel has respiratory issues that cause him frequent illnesses and the document claims the climate crisis is increasing the length and severity of Montana’s wildfire season which poses a threat on the young boy’s health.
The trial will take place on June 12, 2023 and conclude on June 23
Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry: 'People who think that they can control the climate… It’s just a pipe dream.'
Curry: The basic facts of the situation are pretty clear. Global temperatures have been warming. Humans emit CO2 into the atmosphere. CO2 has an infrared emission spectra which overall acts to warm the planet. But there’s a lot of disagreement about the most consequential issues. How much of the warming has been human caused? How important is human-caused warming relative to solar variability, ocean circulation patterns and so on? ... What we do object to is the idea of a manufactured consensus for political purposes. This is not a natural scientific consensus that has emerged over a long time. It’s a manufactured consensus of scientists at the request of policy makers, which has been too narrowly framed. There’s too much politics in it. And that’s what I object to and there’s a number of other scientists that object to this as well. And we’ve also been critical of the behaviour of some of the more politically active scientists who are exaggerating the truth in the interests of a good story or political objectives.
Pre-industrial is held up as some sort of golden age that we’re supposed to go back to. Well [in] pre-industrial [times] the weather was horrible. This was at the end of the little ice age. It was the coldest period of the millennium. There were horrible famines, extreme weather and extremely, terribly cold winters and springs and things like that. That was not good weather. The weather now is much better.
