Donald Trump to pull out of Paris climate deal – reports

President Trump has reportedly decided to pull out of the Paris climate change agreement.

According to the news website Axios, two sources close to the Trump Administration said the president has already started consulting on the exit process with senior officials.

The move would strike a massive blow to the legacy of his successor, President Obama, who viewed tackling climate change as a top priority and considered the agreement to be among his greatest achievements.

CNN.com Touts Need To Remove Beef From Diet To Fight Climate Change

More regurgitated “climate change” fear, doom and gloom to make you think it must be real.

“Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth” etc etc

PA Pundits - International

Even if you drive a hybrid car, install solar panels on your house, maintain a compost pile in your backyard, and collect rainwater for reuse, you’re still contributing to climate change if you eat beef, according to proponents of climate change ideology.

A May 15 CNN slideshow/article titled, “These are the most climate-damaging foods,” discussed a Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) report and the list of ten foods NRDC said most significantly contribute to climate change “based on emissions associated with producing them.”

The caption for the first photo in CNN’s slideshow said: “Beef is widely recognized as the most climate-damaging of all foods.” It also stated:

Reducing beef consumption is an effective way of curbing global emissions. According to the NRDC, Americans now consume 19 percent less beef than just over a decade ago, in 2005. This is equivalent to a reduction of…

Sea Level Sophistry; Junk Science Masquerading as the Basis for UnSound Public Policy

“CO2 theory says warming should be increasing at an increasing rate, but everyone knows – or ought to know – it isn’t, and that’s been the case for around 20 years now. Yet still the alarm bells are sounded by the usual sources, as if the failed forecasts of the climate models had been true.” (“Old Brew” – Tallbloke’s Talkshop)

$7.5bn worth of coal-fired power plants planned for Vietnam

“Vietnam is heading for the first world whilst the UK [Australia, Europe and the virtue-signalling West] is headed for the third world.” Reader Phillip Bratby

Bizarrely true statement.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

Vietnam is to set to go ahead with three new coal power plants, to be financed by Japan, South Korea and Saudi Arabia.

From PEI:

The Vietnamese government is set to approve investment licenses for three coal-fired power plants worth a combined $7.5bn.
The country continues to rely on coal power and hydropower to securely meet the country’s annual
electricity demand growth of 11 per cent.
Two of the projects by Japanese, South Korean and Saudi Arabian investors are expected to receive licences ahead of Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s visit to Japan next month, investment minister Nguyen Chi Dung told Reuters on Tuesday.

Details provided by the investment ministry showed South Korea’s Taekwang Power Holdings Co. and Saudi Arabia’s ACWA Power would invest $2.07bn for a 1,200 MW thermal power plant.
Each investor would have a 50-percent stake in the plant and commercial operation is…

Carbon Taxes Pound Canada Economy

“Any reductions in Canadian emissions caused by the Trudeau tax grab will immediately be erased by China’s booming coal industry and its refusal to impose the kind of job-killing carbon tax schemes being sold by the Trudeau Liberals.

There will be no positive impact on the environment, but the effect on our pocketbook will be concrete and measurable.”

Groundhog Day for the virtue-signalling climate elites. Australia tried the “Carbon Tax”. It didn’t change the weather, simply shifted “emissions” (jobs) to China. Welcome to hell Canada 🇨🇦

Canadian Inflation Jumps As Carbon Taxes Come Into Force

Globe and Mail:
Canadian inflation spiked to its highest rate in more than two years in January, as new carbon taxes in Alberta and Ontario fuelled a surge in gasoline prices.

Statistics Canada reported that the consumer price index was up 2.1 per cent year over year in January, the fastest pace since October, 2014, and up sharply from 1.5 per cent in December. It said gasoline prices were up 20.6 per cent from a year earlier, the biggest increase since September, 2011. The increase reflected the introduction of a carbon tax in Alberta and a cap-and-trade carbon pricing system in Ontario, both of which came into effect on Jan. 1, as well as higher crude-oil prices, which lifted fuel costs nationwide.

From StatsCan April Report:

Transportation costs rose 4.2% over the 12-month period ending in April, after increasing 4.6% in…

Does The FBI Have Anything At All On President Trump?

“It’s why liberal thinkers have traditionally abhorred secret courts, secret surveillance and secret evidence, and in the past would have reflexively discouraged the news media from printing the unverified or unverifiable charges emanating from such secret sources. But because it’s Donald Trump, no one seems to care.”

“All of this is exacerbated by the constant stream of leaks and hints at mother lodes of evidence that are just around the corner. It’s quite literally driving the country crazy.”

Correct.

By Andrew Bolt ~

Even the Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi, who blames Fox News for the end of US civilisation, smells a rat:

What exactly is the FBI investigating? Why was it kept secret from other intelligence chiefs, if that’s what happened? That matters, if we’re trying to gauge what happened last week.

Is it a FARA (Foreign Agent Registration Act) case involving former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn or a lower-level knucklehead like Carter Page? …[I]t would be somewhat anticlimactic to find out that this was the alleged crime underlying our current white-hot constitutional crisis…

However, let’s say the FBI is actually investigating collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian state. That’s the most serious possibility, and the one exciting so much public dread.

If it’s that, what’s at the heart of that case? Why can’t we be told what’s going on? Operational secrecy would be a believable…

Latest Telegraph Puff For Electric Cars

The taxpayer funded electric car green-dream is a climate obsessed virtue/signalling joke.

But, living in Asia, I am a MASSIVE fan of converting to electric auto.

BUT, this can only occur when the noble eco-cranks admit that the source energy can ONLY be derived from either Nuclear or Coal origins.

Smog sucks. Ramp up Nukes and power clean electric autos by all means.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood

h/t Patsy Lacey

The Telegraph seem to be running puff pieces for electric cars nearly everyday now:

The cost of owning an electric car will fall to the same level as petrol-powered vehicles next year, according to bold new analysis from UBS which will send shockwaves through the automobile industry.

Experts from the investment bank’s “evidence lab” made the prediction after tearing apart one of the current generation of electric cars to examine the economics of electric vehicles (EVs).

They found that costs of producing EVs were far lower than previously thought but there is still great potential to make further savings, driving down the price of electric cars.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/05/19/electric-vehicles-cost-conventional-cars-2018/

Needless to say, these conclusions arise from a theoretical study by UBS, who probably have a vested interest somewhere along the line in all of this.

Industrial Scale Battery Storage of Wind & Solar Would Cause Surge in CO2 Emissions

UPDATE on – Open-cut, heavy metal *mining* for toxic battery materials to provide an hours worth of energy to a small town when the wind stops blowing OR blows too fast…

Oh so green. 🙈

STOP THESE THINGS

Californian carpet-bagger, Elon Musk has been threatening South Australia with a plan to scoop up at least $150 million of the $550 million its hapless Labor government is about to squander on non-fixes for its self-inflicted wind power disaster.

So no time like the present to reflect on just how ‘green’ is SA’s plan to squander mega-$millions on Musk’s mega-battery.

For the record, there is no grid-scale battery storage system operating anywhere in the world; and when we say ‘grid-scale’ we mean capable of storing hundreds of MWhs, rather than the 20-100 MWh being touted by Tesla.

Also for the record, batteries do not generate power they simply store it; the power put into them has to come from some generation source at a cost, they take time to charge and discharge as fast as their operators permit. Moreover, as every mobile phone owner knows, batteries have a limited lifespan…

Climate Change Australia – Warmist ABC Admits That It Can’t List Any Sceptical Reports

UPDATE on the *TAXPAYER* funded ABC’s legally bound charter for impartially via code 5. 4:

“Impartiality and diversity of perspectives”

PA Pundits - International

By Andrew Bolt ~

After years of hearing only the alarmist view on the warmist ABC, a listener put in an FOI request.

He asks:

Australian Broadcasting Corporation Logo

The document I seek is a list of links to articles related to “global-warming”, “climate-change”, “CO2” and “coral bleaching” that represent the sceptical view of those respective debates – as presented by the ABC on all its platforms.

I have listened, viewed and searched for years and I’ve not found any sceptical articles on the ABC’s platforms.

The ABC’s response:

I have taken reasonable steps to identify and locate all relevant documents. My search for these documents involved contacting the following relevant people, who in turn consulted with relevant managers and staff within their respective teams:

• Director News• Manager Editorial Policies, News.

I requested that searches be conducted of all hard and soft copy records for documents which fall…

Claim: Unwanted children the “fundamental cause of climate change”

DOES Gloria share the same sentiments about her own addition (wanted or unwanted) to population growth, resulting in the supposed “Climate Change” crisis?

Perhaps she’s willing to sacrifice herself, first, for the betterment of Gaia?

Malthus would be proud.

Watts Up With That?

Gloria Steinem Gloria Steinem. By Ms. Foundation for WomenGloriaAwards_DN-250, CC BY 2.0, Link

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem thinks coercing women to have children they don’t want is the fundamental cause of climate change.

People argue that climate change and other issues are also feminist issues. What do we lose by broadening the meaning of the term?

“Are you kidding me? Listen, what causes climate deprivation is population. If we had not been systematically forcing women to have children they don’t want or can’t care for over the 500 years of patriarchy, we wouldn’t have the climate problems that we have. That’s the fundamental cause of climate change. Even if the Vatican doesn’t tell us that. In addition to that, because women are the major agricultural workers in the world, and also the carriers of water and the feeders of families and…
