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?

Are We Blocking Out the Sun?

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

Climate change is real. However, serious scientific evidence is pointing to a very different causality than most discuss. Climate is a huge subject, an immensely complex one. There is controversy around whether we must implement drastic new taxes on fuels or other measures to reduce or “capture” CO2 to reduce Man-Made Global Warming. So far however, there are strong indications we are ignoring what might be a far greater factor in our climate and in increasing occurrence of severe weather around the world, from hurricanes to volcanic eruptions to earthquakes to severe cold, severe warm and severe rainfall. One causal factor being ignored in all the discussion is what influence solar activity has on our climate. We might well be ignoring this to our peril.

UN Climate Scientist: ‘Carbon Dioxide Emissions Are Making The Earth Greener And More Fertile’

from Humans Are Free:

Carbon dioxide emissions are making the Earth greener and more fertile, a United Nations (UN) climate scientist has said.

In a paper for the Global Warming Policy Foundation, Dr Indur Goklany, who has previously represented the United States on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), says that the rising level of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere “is currently net beneficial for both humanity and the biosphere generally”.

The benefits are real, whereas the costs of warming are uncertain,” he adds.

Real scientists declare: There is no climate emergency

by Ethan Huff, The Common Sense Show:

Climate lunatics everywhere are falling all over themselves in adoration of Greta Thunberg, the climate kid who’s being hailed as some kind of progressive environmental hero for whining about global warming at the United Nations. But adult scientists who actually know what they’re talking about disagree with everything she’s saying, and contend that there’s no actual climate emergency taking place.

Some 500 scientists and professionals just last week signed on to what’s been dubbed the “European Climate Declaration,” a scientific statement, of sorts, that counters the climate lies being peddled by the likes of Greta, whom we’ve exposed as a globalist psy-op playing her part in the climate change money-making scam.

120 Years of Climate Scares: Global Cooling, Global Warming and Now Climate Change

from Humans Are Free:

Scientists seeking funding and journalists seeking an audience agree: panic sells.

“Global cooling is going to kills us all!” “No, wait: global warming is going to kill us all!”

All that’s  missing is a back-and-forth of “You shut up!” “No, you shut up!” That is reserved for those who doubt the need for panic.

And now that the world has neither froze solid, nor burst into flames, it’s “climate change” — you know, because everyone will agree that climate changes. It’s been changing since the first days of our planet, millions of years before humans even existed, and will continue to change indefinitely, because that’s what climate does.

Top Level Climate Modeler Goes Rogue, Criticizes ‘Nonsense’ of ‘Global Warming Crisis’

by Thomas Lifson, Humans Are Free:

A highly qualified and experienced climate modeler with impeccable credentials has rejected the unscientific bases of the doom-mongering over a purported climate crisis.

His work has not yet been picked up in this country, but that is about to change. Writing at the Australian site Quadrant, Tony Thomas introduces the English-speaking world to the truth-telling of Dr. Mototaka Nakamura (hat tip: Andrew Bolt, John McMahon).

“There’s a top-level oceanographer and meteorologist who is  prepared to cry “Nonsense!”on the “global warming crisis” evident to climate modellers but not in the real world. He’s as well or better qualified than the modellers he criticises — the ones whose Year 2100 forebodings of 4degC warming have set the world to spending $US1.5 trillion a year to combat CO2 emissions.
