American Voters Concerned about Economy, Not Climate

American Energy Alliance

WASHINGTON DC (May 27, 2020) – Today, the American Energy Alliance, America’s premier energy think tank, recently partnered with MWR Strategies to field a nationwide survey of 1000 likely voters (margin of error 3.1%).  We have attached the topline results. AEA President Tom Pyle said this about the survey results: “Consistent with our research that spans more than a decade, respondents place no priority on climate change.  To the extent they do imagine there is a problem, they have no confidence in the ability of the federal government to solve it.  More importantly, there is even less willingness to pay for anything to address climate change than there had been previously.” “The bottom line is that if our current experience with …

Highly Touted Alarmist Hurricane ‘Study’ Sets New Low for Misleading Deception

by James Taylor
Climate Realism

“The media are breathlessly touting a cheap new “study” falsely asserting climate change is causing an increase in strong hurricanes. In reality, the study relies on deception, unethical data manipulation, and aggressive misrepresentation of quite normal short-term trends to support its false claim,” according to Climate Realism

Assessing the Costs and Benefits of the Green New Deal’s Energy Policies”

by Kevin Dayaratna and Nicolas Loris
The Heritage Foundation

“The proposed Green New Deal would be incredibly costly for American families and businesses—for no meaningful climate benefit. Moreover, the plan would introduce a completely new level of cronyism and corporate welfare that would harm consumers multiple times over,” according to The Heritage Foundation.

Climate at a Glance: Ocean Currents

Climate at a Glance

“For approximately 20 years, alarmists have claimed global warming was causing ocean currents to slow down to their slowest pace in over 1,000 years.  Alarmists claimed their climate change computer models predicted the slowdown.  Alarmists claimed a slowdown would cause disastrous consequences on marine life and might cause a disastrous mini-ice age, as dramatized in the Hollywood movie, The Day After Tomorrow.  The most recent peer-reviewed research falsifies this long-claimed climate crisis, showing that ocean currents have been speeding up throughout the past 20 years, not slowing down.  Alarmists now claim their computer models predicted this acceleration all along,” according to Climate at a Glance.

“While more than 61,800 Americans have died from the Chinese coronavirus, and another 26 million have been plunged into unemployment, actor-director Robert Redford apparently sees a silver lining in how draconian, Government-ordered shelter-in-place measures can help fight climate change,” according to Breitbart News

“The Covid-19 pandemic has turned Europe’s carbon price upside down, with prices dropping by 40% since early March when they were still trading at about €24 ($26) per metric ton, analyst IHS Markit said.  The current trading levels of between €16-18 per metric ton are roughly two thirds of the level of the high of 2019 of €29 per metric ton,” according to Breitbart News.

“The Union of Concerned Scientists are not necessarily scientists (anyone can join by paying a modest dues) and they certainly are not concerned about the lies they tell. Try this one: ‘The effects of global warming on temperature, precipitation levels, and soil moisture are turning many of our forests into kindling during wildfires’” according to CFACT.

Geologic Heat Linked To East Coast Ocean Warming Trend

by James Kamis
Climate Change Dispatch

“In summary, evidence substantiates that a well-defined, persistent and non-moving ocean warm trend originating off the East Coast of the United States is the result of super-heated and methane enriched fluids emitted from numerous seafloor hydrothermal vents/hot springs.  This has far-reaching implications concerning the root cause of current worldwide ocean warming,”  according to a story by the Climate Change Dispatch.

Unlike in Europe, the US approach to climate change is actually working

by Drew Johnson
Washington Examiner

“European leaders have spent years trying and pointedly failing to solve the climate crisis with regulation. Whether intentionally or not, U.S. policymakers have mostly avoided top-down solutions. And counterintuitively, or perhaps it should have been intuitive, the U.S. now leads the developed world in reducing carbon emissions,” according the the Washington Examiner.

It’s Not Just About Cost. The Green New Deal Is Bad Environmental Policy, Too

by Nicolas Loris
The Heritage Foundation

“By shrinking our economy by potentially tens of trillions of dollars, the Green New Deal will cause lower levels of prosperity and fewer resources to deal with whatever environmental challenges come our way. That’s a bad deal for our economy and our environment,” according to Nicolas Loris, Deputy Director of The Heritage Foundation’s Thomas A. Roe Institute.

Climate Change Reconsidered II: Physical Science

by Idso, Singer, Soon
Heartland Institute

As the Heartland Institute says on its website, “The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) is an international panel of nongovernment scientists and scholars who have come together to present a comprehensive, authoritative, and realistic assessment of the science and economics of global warming. Because it is not a government agency, and because its members are not predisposed to believe climate change is caused by human greenhouse gas emissions, NIPCC is able to offer an independent “second opinion” of the evidence reviewed – or not reviewed – by the [UN’s] Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) on the issue of global warming.”

Climate Change: The Sun’s role

by Gerald E. Marsh

The sun’s role in the earth’s recent warming remains controversial even though there is a good deal of evidence to support the thesis that solar variations are a very significant factor in driving climate change both currently and in the past. The author offers a simple, phenomenological approach for estimating the actual—as opposed to model dependent—magnitude of the sun’s influence on climate.
