PNAS Paper Confirms Climate Policy Is A Failure – “Growth In Global CO2 Emission Has Remained Strong”

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailSteffen Hentrich here of the Liberal Institute, a think tank of the Friedrich-Naumann-Foundation for Freedom brings our attention here to a PNAS paper written by Glen P. Peters, Jan C. Minx, Christopher L. Weber and Ottmar Edenhofer titled: Growth in emission transfers via international trade from 1990 to 2008.

Janez Potočnik, European Commissioner for Environment, Denies Plans To Impose Water Restrictions In Europe

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailI got the following as a reader comment. It’s a statement that appears to be direct from Janez Potočnik’s office. He is a European Commissioner for Environment and he refutes the story that they plan to mandate water saving measures in Europe.  That’s a relief – saved from another stupid idea, at least for now […]

EU Environmental Kommissar Drafting Water Consumption Reduction Directive – Tens Of Billions More Costs For Citizens

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+email Parts of southern Europe are experiencing drought conditions. So what does the European Union want to do about it?

Where’s The Oil! Deepwater Horizon One Year Later

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailIt was supposed to be USA’s Fukushima – an environmental disaster of Biblical dimensions – one that would serve as a watershed in USA’s energy policy development. The nation would now finally start to wean itself off oil and switch to renewables in earnest. When the BP Deepwater Horizon drilling platform exploded, killing 11 workers, and began […]

Is Permafrost Methane A Climate Time Bomb? “Only in Scenarios – Not In Reality” Says German Permafrost Scientist

Preachy Germany’s Black Coal Consumption Skyrockets 15.4% in 2010 – Due To Cold!

Share this…FacebookTwitterGoogle+emailFace it, Germany’s elitst leaders think that by righteously adopting positions of “protecting the climate” and the “responsible” use of energy, they’ll be able to assume the role as the world’s moral leaders. The pious, like Chancellor Angela Merkel and all the leaders of all other parties, media, etc., all insist they have truly learned […]

More Tick Infections “Due To Global Warming” – German Inflation Fuelled By High Energy Costs
