Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Climate alarmists have broadened their desperate search for a way of engaging people’s attention, by compiling a list of iconic tourist attractions and national icons which they claim are “threatened” by climate change.

For example;

Statue of Liberty, U.S.A.

This statue has stood in New York Harbor welcoming millions of immigrants and tourists to America from around the world since 1876. That was when the statue, designed by sculptor Frederic Bartholdi and engineer Gustave Eiffel, was given to the U.S.A. by France in celebration of the 100th anniversary of American independence. The statue is vulnerable to sea level rise and extreme weather. It was closed for nine months following damage from Hurricane Sandy in 2011.

Dozens of iconic…

Green French Turn to Emergency Fossil Fuel Reserves

“This is an example of why I think the climate movement will ultimately fail. When all else fails, even French greens embrace fossil fuels, to keep the lights on.”

Yup.

Watts Up With That?

Liberté, égalité, fraternité - except when it comes to climate change Liberté, égalité, fraternité – except when it comes to climate change

The strongly pro-green French Government have unlocked their strategic fossil fuel reserves, to keep the economy going, in the midst of economically crippling strikes which are preventing oil deliveries and threatening the stability of the national electricity supply.

France Faces Fresh Strikes And Power Shortages As Nuclear Workers Join Protest

AFP – France faced fresh strikes Thursday after nuclear power station workers voted to join gathering protests against labour law reforms that have forced the country to dip into strategic fuel reserves due to refinery blockades.

Japan leads overseas coal power project funding, report shows

When one takes off the green-tinted glasses; energy reality, rationale and sanity shines through.

If the WWF cared for the world’s poorest people, they would support Japan, Germany and Italy’s clean-coal investments in places like Myanmar, Phillipines and Indonesia.

Though, as we already know, environmental activist groups like WWF prefer to believe that “The Earth has cancer and the cancer is Man.” (Club of Rome, premier environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations) or maintain the Malthusian belief of Stanford University’s population freak, Paul Ehrlich, that “Giving society cheap, abundant energy would be the equivalent of giving an idiot child a machine gun.”

From PEI:

Japan is the leading funder of coal-fired power plants in developing countries, a new report from environmental groups has shown.

The report was issued this week as Japan prepares to host a G7 summit which will include discussions on climate change. The environmental groups say Japan has failed to follow the Paris climate agreement.

According to the report, commissioned by groups including the National Resources Defence Council (NDRC) and the WWF, Japan led the G7 nations in coal power financing between 2007 and 2015, providing over half of the total funding for such projects through direct finance, guarantees, technical assistance and aid for coal power, mining and related projects.

Japan’s share of the total was $22bn, which amounts to 52 per cent of the $42bn provided by G7 nations. And, according to the report, Japan has a further $10bn of coal power projects in…
