PROF HAPPER: U.S. MUST WITHDRAW FROM PARIS AGREEMENT - CO2 NOT A POLLUTANT BUT A BENEFIT TO HUMANITY
Policy

Posted 29 May 2017

Professor William Happer writes in the Washington Times:  "The United States should withdraw from the  Paris Climate Agreement. For too long, well-meaning policy-makers have been misled by propaganda, masquerading as science, that more atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) will harm the planet. Paris represents the culmination of this campaign. The pact extends into perpetuity, its very terms dispensing with the value of the supposedly 'seat at the table.' For this and many other reasons, the time to withdraw is now. Real pollutants from fossil fuel combustion, such as oxides of sulphur, nitrogen and fly ash, are rightly controlled, and by cost-effective technology. But more CO2 is not a pollutant, it is a benefit to humanity."

TOM HARRIS: "KILLING THE PARIS AGREEMENT IS NOT ENOUGH"
Policy

Posted 18 May 2017

Tom Harris, of the International Climate Science Coalition, writes at The Daily Caller:  "If President Trump merely pulls the United States out of the Paris Agreement on climate change, it will be like cutting the head off a dandelion. It will look good for a while until equally bad agreements quickly grow back when a Democrat occupies the White House again. Trump needs to dig up the roots of Paris - the 1992 U.N. climate treaty - if he is to keep his campaign promise to 'stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to the U.N. global warming programs.'

LARRY BELL APPLAUDS CHANGE OF HEART ON CLIMATE SCIENCE BY NEW YORK TIMES
Policy

Posted 18 May 2017

Larry Bell writes at Newsmax about an apparent change of heart by the New York Times: "Titled 'Climate of Complete Certainty' the gray lady's new op-ed writer Bret Stephens observes in his first-ever column entry, '[We] respond to inherent uncertainties of data by adding more data without revisiting our assumptions, creating an impression of certainty that can be lulling, misleading and often dangerous.' Referring most particularly to climate science politicization, Stephens wrote that 'Demanding abrupt and expensive changes in public policy raises fair questions about ideological intentions. Censoriously asserting one's moral superiority and treating skeptics as imbeciles and deplorables wins few converts.'

MATT RIDLEY: WIND IS AN IRRELEVANCE TO THE ENERGY AND CLIMATE DEBATE
Science

Posted 17 May 2017

"[Wind power's] contribution is still, after decades - nay centuries - of development, trivial to the point of irrelevance. Even put together, wind and photovoltaic solar are supplying less than 1 per cent of global energy demand.  From the International Energy Agency's 2016 Key Renewables Trends, we can see that wind provided 0.46 per cent of global energy consumption in 2014, and solar and tide combined provided 0.35 per cent. Remember this is total enery, not just electricity, which is less than a fifth of all final energy, the rest being the solid, gaseous, and liquid fuels that do the heavy lifting fir heat, transport and industry."  Viscount Matt Ridley writes at his blog.

MORE CO2 MAKING EARTH GREENER & BOOSTING VALUE OF FOOD CROPS
Science

Posted 8 May 2017

"There is now evidence, derived from satellite imaging, that over the last 30-odd years Earth has been getting greener as a consequence of the increasing atmospheric CO2 concentration. This is of course consistent with the science...and indeed was predicted many years ago.  The figures are: 25-50 percent of the vegetative land on Earth is now 14 percent greener (measured by leaf area index) and that 70 per cent of this effect is due to CO2, as distinct from solid fertiliser use or improving climatic conditions." A top New Zealand scientist, Dr Doug Edmeades, writing in NZ Farmer, and calculating increase in value of extra crops from $US18.5 billion in 1961 to $US140 billion in 2011.
