Republican U.S. Senate candidate Robert Flanders is going on the air with his first TV ad, featuring an actor portraying climate activist Democratic Senator Sheldon Whitehouse -- who has given over Senate 200 speeches on climate -- as a climate obsessed "doofus." In the ad, Sen. Whitehouse responds with only the words "climate change" to every single question he gets asked -- "including what speed he was driving."
The ad concludes: "If climate change is your only issue, Sheldon Whitehouse is your senator," the narrator says, before an elderly woman calls Whitehouse 'kind of a doofus.'"
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), who is in Bonn, said the timing of the Heartland conference was meant to confuse the public on the issue of climate change during the U.N. conference. “Trump is a dream come true for the climate denial operation, which has always craved legitimacy,” Whitehouse said. “Trump being willing to send government officials to one of these phony-baloney things is really regrettable because there’s no science behind it.”
Climate TRACE utilizes satellite data, machine learning and artificial intelligence to determine greenhouse gas emissions globally. It aims usher in an era of "radical transparency" and a more enforceable climate agreement by giving nonprofits, governments and the UN actionable intelligence to track and crack down on polluters.

Last week, media outlets across the globe claimed that there has been rain for the first time at the Greenland summit. “Rain fell at the normally snowy summit of Greenland for the first time on record,” read CNN’s headlines. Others went a step further and declared it a sign of climate doomsday. “Rain On Greenland Ice Sheet, Possibly A First, Signals Climate Change Risk,” read another headline. Unfortunately, for the mainstream media, climate history nearly always comes back to haunt their claims of unprecedented events. Records reveal that this is not the first rainfall in Greenland, and certainly not the first on the Greenland summit peak, which stands at around 10,000 feet.
