“11,000 scientists” climate emergency petition includes a bunch of fake names

by Anthony Watts, Watts Up With That:

From the “there’s no quality control in climate science” department comes this laughable revelation, via the Australian:

Scientists’ petition on climate crisis blocked over fake signatories

Dozens of signatories including Mickey Mouse and Harry Potter headmaster Albus Dumbledore from Hogwarts have been ­removed from an Alliance of World Scientists declaration of a “climate emergency”.

Access to the 11,000 name-petition that accompanied a statement of concern published in BioScience on Tuesday was blocked on Thursday.

11,000 Experts Propose Final Solution To Global Warming: Just Kill Billions Of People

from ZeroHedge:

Over 40 years ago, scientists from 50 nations pivoted on a longstanding “global cooling” thesis that was going to blanket the earth in ice, and instead adopted what was then called the “CO2-climate problem” which would lead to theories on global warming, rising tides and economic catastrophe.

“Now, four decades later, a larger group of scientists is sounding another, much more urgent alarm,” according to Bloomberg.

Trump Admin Begins Withdrawal From Paris Climate Accord

by Ryan Saavedra, Daily Wire:

The Trump administration announced on Monday that it was officially withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord, with the withdrawal officially set to be completed one year from now.

“President Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers by U.S. pledges made under the Agreement,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote in a statement. “The United States has reduced all types of emissions, even as we grow our economy and ensure our citizens’ access to affordable energy.”

‘Climate’ activists seek to ditch polar bear pics as growing populations defy ’emergency’ narrative

by Victor Skinner, The American Mirror:

Polar bears are out, and pictures of people in misery after natural disasters and choking on smog are in.

The suggested shift what “journalists” should focus on when covering the so-called “climate emergency” comes from The Guardian’s picture editor Fiona Shields, who argues “we need new imagery for new narratives.”

There’s one other convenient benefit: Polar bears are thriving in the changing climate, an inconvenient truth that contradicts the doom-and-gloom narrative promoted by climate alarmists.

How to Protect Yourself from Chemtrails

from Humans Are Free:

If you don’t already know, chemtrails are the toxic-laden trails you see coming out of the hundreds of airplanes constantly crisscrossing the sky. Technically they’re called contrails, and FAKE science will claim it’s nothing but water vapor and ice crystals due to the difference in atmospheric temperature.

While this has some truth, it’s nowhere near the whole truth.

What they’re not telling you is that in addition to crystals, these lofty contrails also contain byproducts of engine exhaust like nitrogen oxides, sulfate particles and deadly carbon dioxide. What’s worse is that they may also be carrying chemical substances being used for unknown government experiments.

STUDY: Explosion In Antarctic Sea Ice Levels May Cause Another Ice Age, Not Warming

by Eric A. Blair, The Gateway Pundit:

One thing we know for sure is that we don’t know for sure.

While Democrats and liberals claim “global warming” is settled science, reports come out weekly that deliver different data. The climate was indeed warming throughout the 1990s, but that then dropped off.

Now, a new study finds that an increase in sea ice may lead to another ice age.

Climate Alarmists Propose Feeding Cows Seaweed to Reduce Methane in Farts

by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart:

Environmentalists intent on finding new ways to reduce so-called greenhouse gas emissions to curb climate change have proposed a novel method: feed cows seaweed to diminish methane in flatulence, belches, and manure.

Ermias Kebreab, an zoology professor at the University of California–Davis, led a team in producing a bovine meal regimen containing varying levels of Asparagopsis armata, a strain of red seaweed, and fed it to 12 dairy cows over a two-month period. In a mix containing just 1 percent seaweed, the cows’ methane emissions went down by a stunning 60 percent.

Naomi Oreskes Accuses Climate Scientists of Fitting In with the Consensus

by Eric Worrall, Watts Up With That:

According to Naomi Oreskes, who is so prolific with her public name calling she once called NASA climate scientist James Hansen a denier, climate scientists are frightened to speak up when their findings diverge from the public positions of their colleagues.

The real reason some scientists downplay the risks of climate change

Climate deniers often accuse scientists of exaggerating the threats associated with the climate crisis, but if anything they’re often too conservative

lthough the results of climate research have been consistent for decades, climate scientists have struggled to convey the gravity of the situation to laypeople outside their field. If anything, the wider public only recently seems to have awakened to the threat of the climate crisis. Why?
