Once again pushback is required against scientists using climate models to promote their biased ‘human-caused warming’ agenda.
– – –
A new paper by Santer et al. provocatively entitled “Exceptional stratospheric contribution to human fingerprints on atmospheric temperature” goes where no serious climate scientist should go: it has conflated stratospheric cooling with global warming, says Dr. Roy Spencer (via Climate Change Dispatch).

The paper starts out summarizing the supposed importance of their work, which is worth quoting in its entirety:

Grounded – France bans short-haul flights to cut ‘carbon’ emissions

If you fly private, read on. This ban on freedom of movement does not apply to you. Have a nice day.

CO2 is not pollution
France is scared of the vital trace gas carbon dioxide, or so its government leads us to believe.

France has banned domestic short-haul flights where train alternatives exist, in a bid to cut carbon emissions, reports BBC News.

The law came into force two years after lawmakers had voted to end routes where the same journey could be made by train in under two-and-a-half hours.

The ban all but rules out air travel between Paris and cities including Nantes, Lyon and Bordeaux, while connecting flights are unaffected.

Critics have described the latest measures as “symbolic bans”.

How Much Wind Killing Do We Want?

“As part of this general permit the eagle killing is exempt from NEPA, or rather the entire project is as long as eagle killing is all they are doing.

They estimated about 250,000 bird deaths a year… but it gets much worse when we look ahead at the Biden Administration’s goal of “net zero” emissions.

The vast majority of these dead birds will be songbirds. It is ironic that the environmental movement first took off with Carson’s ‘Silent Spring’, which warned about the potential extermination of songbirds. Now that we are rushing headlong into environmental industrialization it appears we have come full circle.”

Industrial windmills and radical ‘net-zero’, ‘green energy’ edicts are quite literally, “killing the earth to ‘save’ it”.

Greta et al.?

That rapidly growing wind power development kills birds in ever increasing numbers is clear. That it also kills whales and other marine mammals is becoming clear. So the policy question is how much killing is enough, before we stop killing more? This question seems not to be asked.

The stampede to build huge amounts of wind power, on land and at sea, is potentially devastating to a great many species. Our focus has been on the growing threat to whales and other marine mammals from offshore industrial wind.

But this is just part of a much deeper pattern of runaway wind killing. For now let’s consider the indifference of the Biden Administration to land based killing of birds.

To begin with there is the golden eagle. This majestic species is the largest bird of prey in western North America, where wind development is growing rapidly…

1875 was coldest in 10,000 years, Warming A Good Thing

“This means that it will be very hard, indeed, to prove whether the increase of temperature in the 20th Century was man-made or it’s natural variation. That will be very hard because we made ourselves an extremely poor experiment; we started to observe meteorology at the coldest spot in the last 10,000 years.”

Jørgen Peder Steffensen, of Denmark’s Niels Bohr Institute, is one of the most experienced experts in ice core analysis, in both Greenland and Antarctica. In this video he explains a coincidence that has misled those alarmed about the warming recovery since the Little Ice Age.  And if you skip to 2:25, you will see the huge error we have made and the assumptions and extrapolations based on that error.  Transcript below is from closed captions with my bolds and added images.

What do ice cores tell us about the history of climate change and the present trend? 

This ice is from the Viking age around the year one thousand, also called the medieval warm period. We believe that in Greenland the Medieval Warm Period was about one and a half degrees warmer on average than today

From Daily Caller: Biden Official Speechless After John Kennedy Grills Him On Simple Question

Department of Energy Deputy Secretary David Turk testified Wednesday before the Senate committee on appropriations to discuss the 2024 budget request for the Department of Energy.

Kennedy noted the budget requests a 38% increase in green energy funding while cutting nuclear energy funding with barely an increase fossil fuel energy. Kennedy then asked Turk for an estimate of how much it would cost to be carbon neutral by 2050, with Turk refusing to provide a number. Kennedy first said Turk’s colleagueshave presented a figure in the range of $50 trillion before asking how much would temperatures be affected by that massive spending.

Tucker Carlson: Too True for Fox and Video

PA Pundits International

By ousting its most popular and most populist personality, weak-kneed Fox News made clear that it doesn’t have the guts it once did.

Quick: What’s the common thread between the FBI’s refusal to release the Nashville assailant’s manifesto, Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett’s threatened imprisonment of independent journalist Matt Taibbi, and Tucker Carlson’s ouster from Fox News?

If you said “censorship,” you win a Cadillac Eldorado a set of steak knives. If you said something else, then you might not understand the defining issue of our time — which is the freedom to say what we want to say and to hear what we want to hear. Nothing is more fundamental or more important. (There’s a reason why those five expressive freedoms are enshrined in our Constitution’s First Amendment.)

“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways,” the network said in a terse…

US ski season extended as record snowpack dents Western drought

ANY student of history can look back and discover that all of history’s mass-murdering socialists — from Hitler to Stalin to Mao — have manufactured audacious lies and scapegoats as a means to consolidate power into a malevolent Central Authority.

The global warming / climate change cult, with its draconian, green centrally-planned agenda and underlying misanthropic ideology, is no different — a grandiose and costly con used by globalist elites in their never-ending lust for absolute power and control.

Freedom is Slavery.

War is Peace.

Ignorance is Strength.

Cooling is Warming.

‘Record snowpack’, ‘staggering snowfall’ – dismal climate doomsters take note.
– – –
Record snowfall across much of the western United States has not only helped to alleviate drought—it has also brought a massive boon for the region’s ski resorts, with many hoping to keep their lifts running deep into summer, says

Sitting more than 10,500 feet (3,200 meters) above sea level, Colorado’s Arapahoe Basin has long been famous for its long seasons. The resort’s frozen pistes were the state’s first to open last fall, and typically don’t close until June.

“I bet you, here, we might make it into July. I hope so,” said local ski enthusiast Ian Burkle, 52.

Key net zero climate schemes likely to fail, government told


Tallbloke's Talkshop

Like many other countries, they’ve always been playing in the pie-in-the-sky league on climate policy, built on vague untestable conjectures and unreliable climate models.
– – –
Key climate schemes trumpeted as part of the government’s net zero strategy are likely to fail, ministers were told before last week’s “green day” announcements, says The Times (via No2NuclearPower).

A leaked document by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) reveals that officials told ministers they were not confident that key policies announced on Thursday — including tree planting, peat restoration and recycling targets — were realistic.

The ten-page advisory document — marked “not public facing” — was produced on February 20 for Grant Shapps, the energy security and net zero secretary.

It assessed the “delivery risk” and “delivery confidence” of each of the net zero measures proposed by Defra, which is run by Thérèse Coffey, the environment secretary…

Catastrophism Update: UN to deliver diagnosis, prescription for its ‘climate crisis’

Tough ask to comment objectively or responsibly on this one. Perhaps best left up to a literary master, unaffected by hubris.

The world only has one temperature, which must somehow be restrained by human efforts — and lots of money. Or so the endless IPCC reports would have us believe. Keep paying up so the self-styled weather controllers can ‘save the planet’.

The United Nations was poised to release a capstone report Monday distilling nearly a decade of published science on the impacts and trajectory of global warming, and the tools available to prevent climate catastrophe, says

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 30-odd page “summary for policymakers”—compressing 10,500 pages authored by more than 1,000 scientists—is as dense as a black hole and will deliver a stark warning.

“We are nearing a point of no return,” UN chief Antonio Guterres said last week as diplomats from 195 nations gathered in Interlaken, Switzerland, to hammer out the final wording, finalized on Sunday night by exhausted and sleep-deprived…

Greens Refuse To Discuss Recycling Renewables And Restoring Mining Locations To Pristine Condition

More proof that ClimateChange™️ and UNreliables have absolutely nothing to do with the “environment” or “saving the planet”. Rather, GlobalWarming™️ fears are a tool for political and economic change. While, UNreliables represent the religious symbol allowing for the greatest transfer of wealth from the working and middle classes to the corporate elite in the history of mankind.

Wasn’t long ago, the eco-freaks bandied around the hashtag #keepitintheground, in relation to all mining. That aged well. Hypocrites.

PA Pundits International

By Ronald Stein ~

The reality is that all the mineral products and metals needed to make wind turbines, solar panels, and EV batteries are mined and processed in places like Baotou, Inner Mongolia, Bolivia, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, mostly under Chinese control. Decommissioning and restoration of those mining landscapes back to their original pristine condition is not in the cards in developing countries. Recycling of worn-out turbine blades, solar panels, and EV batteries, in wealthy countries is also not in the cards.

The sites for the mining of materials required to build wind, solar, and EV batteries are under minimal to nonexistent labor, wage, environmental, reclamation, and worker health and safety regulations. The mere extraction of those exotic minerals presents social challenges, human rights abuses, and environmental degradations worldwide, but are of no significance to the wealthy countries benefitting from those “green” materials.

The climate cult COULD…
