@Watts Up With That?: In one graph, why the #ParisAg­reement is useless

Activists think the world will be uninhab­itable for our children if the U.S. pulls out of the Paris Climate Accord. For example, via Vox Quitting the Paris climate agreement would be a moral disgrace President Trump is selling out our kids to give false hope to coal workers. … There is no emplo­yment upside to…

@No Tricks Zone: New Papers Show Solar Activity Impacts ENSO, Refuting Claims Sun Has Little Impact On Climate

Solar activity impacts Pacific weather By Dr. Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahre­nholt (German text translate­d/edited by P Gosselin) In a joint US-​German study, seven scien­tists recently tried to discredit the sun’s impact on climate.

@Tallbloke's Talkshop: Founda­tions of Green­house Theory Chall­enged by New Analysis of Solar System Observ­ations

Back in late 2011, the Talkshop splashed the story on a ‘U­nified Theory of Climate’  developed by PhD physi­cists Ned Nikolov and Karl Zeller. They set out to show that the ‘green­house effect’ is not a pheno­menon arising out of the absor­ption and reemi­ssion of outgoing long-​wave radiation by the atmos­phere (as thought for 190 years), but

@Climatism: Rand Paul succes­sfully debates Jake Tapper on climate change

Origi­nally posted on Green Jihad : When President Trump announced he would withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agree­ment, Kentucky U.S. Senator Rand Paul was interv­iewed by Jake Tapper on CNN. In this inter­view, Paul does a masterful job of not only defending the presid­ent’s decision but also overc­oming Tapper’s climate alarmism.

@Paul Homewood: EU’s CO2 Emissions On The Rise, Blaming Cold Winter

By Paul Homewood From GWPF: According to new data published by the European Enviro­nment Agency (EEA), the 0.5% increase happened largely due to incre­asing demand for transport – better fuel effic­iency in the sector was not enough to offset this. The report suggests a slightly colder winter across Europe also contri­buted to increased emiss­ions, due
