The House Appropriations Committee on Tuesday voted down a Democratic push to allow federal spending on an international climate change program.

Rep. Nita Lowey (N.Y.), the ranking Democrat on the panel, proposed an amendment to the House’s State Department and foreign operations spending bill that would let the federal government contribute to the United Nations’ Green Climate Fund (GCF). Republicans have looked to block that funding.

Already 240 Published Papers In 2016 Alone Show the “97% Climate Consensus” Is A Fantasy

“There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.”
― Michael Crichton

“I would remind you to notice where the claim of consensus is invoked. Consensus is invoked only in situations where the science is not solid enough. Nobody says the consensus of scientists agrees that E=mc2. Nobody says the consensus is that the sun is 93 million miles away. It would never occur to anyone to speak that way.”
― Michael Crichton

“Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you’re being had.”
― Michael Crichton

Senator Whitehouse goes Full Conspiracy Theory on “Climate Denial”

The very fact Democrat senators and climate zealots alike, repeatedly trot out the “denier” meme speaks volumes about the perilous state of Climate Crisis Incorporated and the subsequent methods used to combat the barrage of real-world observations that increasingly and thoroughly refute the man-made catastrophic global warming theory.

The Leftist fix – when your argument is weak, default to ‘othering’ and smear.

Those who rely on ‘othering’ and groupthink clickbait as their go-to, should be aware that “belief” and “denial” are the words of zealots, not scientists.

Watts Up With That?

Whitehouse-Torquemada

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Senator Whitehouse has unveiled his “web of denial”, a vast conspiracy theory about why his side is losing the climate debate.

US senators detail a climate science ‘web of denial’ but the impacts go well beyond their borders

By the middle of this week, about 20 Democratic senators in the US will have stood up before their Congress to talk about the fossil fuelled machinery of climate science denial.

The senators are naming the fossil fuel funders, describing the machinery and calling out the characters that make up a “web of denial”.

“The web is so big, because it has so much to protect,” said the Rhode Island senator Sheldon Whitehouse, who bookended the first evening of speeches.

The Senate heard how fossil fuel companies such as ExxonMobil, Peabody Energy and the billionaire oil brothers Charles and David Koch had funnelled millions into groups that…
