Report Confirms: Carbon Capture & Storage Not Magic Cure for Global Warming

 

The Carbon Tax Scam

Alan Caruba, The Heartland Institute
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is vital to all life on Earth, but most particularly to every piece of vegetation that grows on it. Top climatologists tell me it plays a very small role, if any, in Earth’s climate or weather. Why would anyone expect a gas that represents 400 parts per million of all atmospheric gases, barely 0.04% of all atmospheric gases, to have the capacity to affect something as huge and dynamic as the weather or climate?

 Are Scientists Preparing for a FlipFlop Back to Global Cooling Predictions? 
H. Sterling Burnett, The Philadelphia Inquirer
The global warming debate has reached a new, and chilling, level. U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch reports discussing with the FBI pursuing legal action against companies, research institutions, and scientists who debate whether humans are causing catastrophic climate change. This is an unprecedented politicization of justice and attack on our First Amendment right to freedom of speech. READ  MORE


 Science Supports Public’s Rejection of Climate Change Hype 
H. Sterling Burnett, Inside Sources
Heartland’s H. Sterling Burnett writes a devastating reply to sociologist Robert Brulle, who turned to the Washington Post on January 6 to continue his campaign to attribute the American public’s rejection of global warming alarmism to “the coordinated efforts of conservative foundations and fossil fuel corporations to promote this uncertainty.”  According to Burnett, “The main reason I don’t accept the so-called ‘consensus view’ on climate change is it violates the scientific method. Virtually every testable prediction made concerning the harmful impacts of climate change has been proven to be incorrect.”  READ MORE

Isaac Orr, The Heartland Institute
Erosion is a problem that persists to this day, and it’s responsible for dust storms, mudslides, and sinkholes. Fortunately, plants in forests, grasslands, and everywhere else set roots in the soil and help the soil stay put, and plants around the globe are getting a boost from increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere...READ MORE

Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore told the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works there is no scientific evidence that humans are the primary cause of recent global warming. Moore also noted global warming is occurring at a modest pace and does not seriously threaten human welfare regardless of its cause.

RETRACTION WATCH

 

Proof that organic chemistry is hard for everyone, not just pre-meds: A paper in the Journal of the American Chemical Society was retracted after the structures of compounds being studied were misassigned.  Another study by author Doo Ok Jang, also in JACS, was retracted in 2013 for the same reason; you can read our coverage  here. Jang and Sang Yoon Kim published that one in 2008; the paper we're talking about today was published in 2010 by Jang and Sung Jun Kim. {Of course, you can be assured that science's global warming claims are spot on, right? - Ed}

 'Gremlins' caused errors in climate change paper showing gains from global warming 

The author of a controversial 2009 article, "The Economic Effects of C  limate Change" written by Richard Tol of the University of Sussex, argued that at least some amount of global warming could lead to economic gains has corrected the paper, along with a later article in a different journal.  The paper references: "As one example, climate change affects human mortality and migration. The size of the population is therefore endogenous to the decision on emission abatement. See Blackorby and Donaldson (1984)" The author then indicates that "In this approach, estimates of the “physical effects” of climate change are obtained one by one from natural sciencepapers, which in turn may be based on some combination of climate models.." Computer models that have not been validated. 
 
The 2009 article, appeared in the Journal of Economic Perspectives and been cited 91 times, according to Thomson Scientificâ's Web of Science.

The Sierra Club, Greenpeace, Natural Resources Defense Council, and even the federal government’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have been misleading the public and even committing serious crimes to pad their payrolls and build huge cash accounts. The Sierra Club is on Charity Navigator’s “watch list” after a series of deceptive practices. READ MORE

 

Taxpayers on a Green Hook
 


Russell Cook, for Somewhat Reasonable

“The main pillar of support for the notion that humans are causing a dangerous warming of the climate has been the notion of ‘settled science,’” writes Russell Cook at Heartland’s blog, Somewhat Reasonable. That notion has long been questioned by skeptic scientists, but “the secondary pillar of support for the alarmist global warming theory has been the notion that industry-corrupted skeptics are unworthy of public consideration. This accusation could easily have been investigated and refuted long ago. That never happened, because of the third pillar: Journalists should not give equal time to skeptic scientists.” READ MORE
