UPDATE: http://www.breitbart.com/killing-40000-poor-people-a-year/ ========================================== The latest story on “green energy” here at the German online FOCUS weekly news magazine actually shocked me. Europe’s energy policy is, under the bottom line, costing the lives of tens of thousands of citizens – all at the holy altar of “climate protection”. The title of the FOCUS article: “The grand […]

At Facebook here Belgian organic chemistry professor Istvan Marko responded to Kenneth Richard’s post from yesterday citing very recent literature showing that glacier melting today is actually happening much more slowly than over much of the past 10,000 years. Prof. Istvan Marko, photo source: Facebook The literature thus refute the often heard media claims that […]
New, Vast Body Of Literature Shows Rates Of Glacier Retreat, Sea Level Change, Now Significantly LOWER!
By P Gosselin on 24. March 2016
By guest author Kenneth Richard According to recently published scientific papers, the current sea level highstand, as well as the rate of glacier retreat and sea level change, are now significantly lower than they have been for much of the last 10,000 years — back when CO2 concentrations were stable and considerably lower (at about […]

Are CO2 Emissions Driving Ice Melt, Sea Level Rise? By guest writer Kenneth Richard According to the below graph (Fig. 2 a) found in Gregory et al., 2013 in Journal of Climate (“Twentieth-Century Global-Mean Sea Level Rise: Is the Whole Greater than the Sum of the Parts?”), there was a very substantial increase in the glacier and ice sheet melt contribution […]

More large-scale environmental destruction by German Greens. A photo published at the online www.shz.de/lokal vividly illustrates how the green energy movement has nothing to do with protecting the environment and restoring nature to how it was before industrialization began some 200 years ago. Ironically it is profoundly blighting it. The photo in a commentary by […]

Angry mobs of leftists attacking Donald Trump rallies and the US Justice Department threatening to criminalize climate science dissent are just the latest undeniable, very clear signs the entrenched Establishment is in all out panic mode. If anything is certain, it is that they’ve lost the argument, and violence seems to be their last resort. AP […]
