Climate Policy Should Pay More Attention to Climate Economics

by John Cochrane
National Review

“Climate policy is ultimately an economic question. How much does climate change hurt? How much do various policy ideas actually help, and what do they cost? You don’t have to argue with one line of the IPCC scientific reports to disagree with climate policy that doesn’t make economic sense,” according to National Review.

Doctors Join the Climate Lobby

The Wall Street Journal

“Medical journals are supposed to be forums for doctors to publish research and debate ideas. But like traditional media outlets, many are finding it harder to control their political bias. Now some 200 journal editors are showing their political hand on climate change in an apocalyptic and misleading joint editorial this week that could have been ghost-written by Greta Thunberg,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

China Plays the Climate Card

by The Editorial Board
The Wall Street Journal

“It’s become popular for progressives to proclaim that climate change is the top threat to America’s national security. China’s Communist Party, by far the world’s top emitter of greenhouse gases, has taken note. This American delusion turns climate change into a major source of strategic leverage for Beijing,” according to The Wall Street Journal.

Five Big Problems With President Biden’s Energy-Climate Plan

by Jude Clemente
Real Clear Energy

“1. Oil obviously has no alternative. 2. Companies want to produce more with less jobs. 3. Higher-cost, less-reliable energy isn’t a climate solution. 4. The domestic benefits of U.S. climate policies should be questioned. 5. Renewables are ‘supplemental,’ not ‘alternative,‘” according to Real Clear Energy.

Hurricane Ida’s Climate Resilience Lesson

by The Editorial Board
The Wall Street Journal

“The pictures of Hurricane Ida’s wreckage across Louisiana are grim, and the storm isn’t over. But the good news is that New Orleans appears to have weathered the tempest as well as could be expected thanks to its post-Katrina flood-protection investments. This is a reminder of how hardening infrastructure against unpredictable Mother Nature pays off,” according to The Editorial Board of The Wall Street Journal.

Biden climate change policy a ‘house of cards’

by Peter Murphy
CFACT

“‘It’s getting late early,’ said that great 20th century philosopher, Yogi Berra.  For President Joseph Biden, this nugget from the New York Yankees Hall of Fame catcher sticks like butterscotch as his policy blunders pile up and Americans increasingly feel their baleful effects. They include the bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan, menacing inflation, the human tidal wave over the open southern border, the new coronavirus outbreak, and his war on American energy,” according to CFACT.

by Ryan Dezember
The Wall Street Journal

Hottest July and month ever? Interesting

by Joe Bastardi
CFACT

“First of all, what is hot and how do you use that to describe an entire planet. The warmth out dueled cool in such a way the temp was near the highest average on record but a large part of the input was where no one lives and where even with it above normal its dang cold. So headlines like that are like calling someone a climate denier, a deception. No one denies climate or that climate changes. And a global temp of .35C above the average is not a hell hole hothouse,” according to CFACT.

Impossibly Inconsistent Climate Disaster Claims – an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ Fantasy

by H. Sterling Burnett
Climate Realism

“Climate alarmists have a problem presenting a consistent narrative on the dangers supposed human-caused climate change poses.  Instead, they follow Lewis Carroll’s irrepressible and violent Red Queen down the climate change rabbit hole, as when in response to Alice’s statement that ‘one can’t believe impossible things,’ she proudly proclaimed, ‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice. When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast,’” according to Climate Realism.

Climate Change Brings a Flood of Hyperbole

by Stephen E. Koonin
The Wall Street Journal

“The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has issued its latest report assessing the state of the climate and projecting its future. As usual, the media and politicians are exaggerating and distorting the evidence in the report. They lament an allegedly broken climate and proclaim, yet again, that we are facing the “last, best chance” to save the planet from a hellish future. In fact, things aren’t—and won’t be—anywhere near as dire,” according to The Wall Street Journal.
