It looks like “an IPCC Lead Author with a small cohort of scientists, misrepresented the temperature record of the past 1000 years” …. Judith Curry
by Judith Curry
Regarding the Hockey Stick of IPCC 2001 evidence now indicates, in my view, that an IPCC Lead Author working with a small cohort of scientists, misrepresented the temperature record of the past 1000 years by (a) promoting his own result as the best estimate, (b) neglecting studies that contradicted his, and (c) amputating another’s result so as to eliminate conflicting data and limit any serious attempt to expose the real uncertainties of these data. – John Christy

The past 18 years have shown there is not correlation between CO2 and Temperatures. However there is a strong correlation between CO2 and economic growth. The higher the CO2 emissions from fossil fuel the more economic growth.
China recently passed the US as the world’s #1 CO2 producer. Now they are about to pass the US as the world’s #1 economy

China poised to pass US as world’s leading economic power this year
Over the last 18 years we have seen no correlation between atmospheric CO2 and global temperature, but a strong correlation between local CO2 production and the local economy.
US Government manipulates climate data to control the climate record so no one knows what the real climate is. Hmmm
On Thursday, March 13, 2014, the U.S. National Climactic Data Center switched to gridded GHCN-D data sets it uses to report long term temperature trends – with a resulting dramatic change in the official U.S. climate record. As seems to always happen when somebody modifies the temperature record, the new version of the record shows a significantly stronger warming trend than the unmodified or, in this case, discarded version.
The new dataset, called “nClimDiv,” shows the per decade warming trend from 1895 through 2012 for the contiguous United States to be 0.135 degrees Fahrenheit. The formerly used dataset, called “Drd964x,” shows the per decade warming trend over the same period to be substantially less – only 0.088 degrees. Which is closer to the truth?
As will be illustrated below in the side by side comparison graphs, the increase in the warming trend in…

Piiketty’s Theory Disproven By Reality – The More Power & Money Concentrated In The Hands Of Government – The More Income Inequality
Even though temperatures have not risen in years (despite the rise in CO2), the EPA appears to be on a suicide mission to impair America’s ability to secure her energy future by imposing the use of renewable energy that:
Provides a fraction of the energy fossil fuel does;
Is weather dependent and will not work in severe weather
Is intermittent and unreliable;
Causes great harm to the environment;
“Skyrockets” fuel prices that harms poor people the most and
Does nothing to mitigate Climate Change.
Originally published in Communities Digital News.
Americans take electricity for granted. Electricity powers our lights, our computers, our offices, and our industries. But misguided environmental policies are eroding the reliability of our power system.
Last winter, bitterly cold weather placed massive stress on the US electrical system―and the system almost broke. On January 7 in the midst of the polar vortex, PJM Interconnection, the Regional Transmission Organization serving the heart of America from New Jersey to Illinois, experienced a new all-time peak winter load of almost 142,000 megawatts.

Alarmists True Agenda Is Not Truth It Is: No Growth, Stagnation and Ultimately A Road Back To A Pre-Industrial Society When Life Was Short and Brutal and Everyone But the Elite in Power Were Equal Equally Poor That Is.
Alarmist claims: inference from incomplete, inadequate and ambiguous observations
Climate scientist Dr. Judith Curry has recently posted a number of sharply worded essays providing stinging critical rebukes of assertions of climate harm by alarmists derived from biased and highly selective reading of the UN IPCC AR5 reports.
In an April 21 posting she says the following regarding the so called ‘facts’ cited by climate alarmists to try to make a case for man made climate harm:

Ridley: IPCC & OECD reports are telling us clear as a bell that we cannot ruin the climate with CO2 unless we have a population explosion
Per IPCC, Obama and the Democrats if people are raised up from poverty and get to wealth the world will be destroyed..
The world’s climate change experts are now saying that strong growth doesn’t hurt the environment, it protects it
Matt Ridley, The Times
In the past 50 years, world per capita income roughly trebled in real terms, corrected for inflation. If it continues at this rate (and globally the great recession of recent years was a mere blip) then it will be nine times as high in 2100 as it was in 2000, at which point the average person in the world will be earning three times as much as the average Briton earns today.
I make this point partly to cheer you up on Easter Monday about the prospects for your great-grandchildren, partly to start thinking about what that world will be like if it were to happen, and partly to challenge those who say with confidence that the future…

Obama and his MSM water carriers don’t want the public to know the truth about the Climate Change Scam.
Fortunately, some media outlets recognize a vigorous scientific debate persists over humanity’s influence on climate and those outlets refuse outside efforts to silence viewpoints that run counter to prevailing climate alarmism. My original piece follows below.- Craig Idso
Guest essay by Dr. Craig D. Idso

Greenpeace sold it’s soul to the company store. The real destroyers of the earth are the Climate Alarmists and their ilk in the IPCC.
Birds going up in smoke at Ivanpah solar project
Forests being chopped down for biofuel
Wind Turbines killing thousands of birds and bats
and for what? CO2 emissions going up after dumping billions down the toilet on renewables.
Here in Berlin yesterday the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released the third and final section of its new climate report. While excluded from witnessing the important, four-day meeting that preceded it, journalists were invited to attend a press conference. So long as they were prepared to behave like trained circus animals, that is.
Let it never be said that UN bodies don’t thrive on bureaucracy. You’d think it might be a straightforward matter for a journalist such as myself who’d completed the appropriate paperwork, submitted the right documents, and been officially accredited for a UN climate event in Warsaw last November to gain access to yesterday’s proceedings. But no.
As page two of this IPCC document explains, even reporters who’d jumped through all the press accreditation hoops two weeks ago…
