On Tuesday, the ExxonMobil Corporation came out victorious in a high-profile climate-change accounting case brought by the New York attorney general. Justice Barry Ostrager of the New York Supreme Court ruled that the company did not mislead investors about the potential costs of climate-change legislation and penalties that the oil company may have to pay in the future.
During a congressional trip to the United Nations 25th Conference of the Parties (COP25) on “climate change,” Democrats led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.; shown) ignored reality and claimed the United States was still committed to the “climate” fight and the UN “Paris Agreement.” “We came here to say we’re still in,” Pelosi said at the UN summit in Madrid. However, in the real world, President Donald Trump, who ridiculed the man-made warming alarmism as a “hoax” to benefit Communist China, is still the president. And under his administration, the U.S. government is still in the process of leaving the controversial and illegitimate UN deal.
Guarded in their speech as politicians tend to be, it’s rare when one tells you exactly what they believe. On Tuesday Senator Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii) put into words what many of us already knew: that the climate hysteria movement is similar to a cult. Hirono told the gathered crowd that they should “believe in climate change as though it’s a religion.”
When people ask why more scientists don’t publicly question the so-called science behind anthropogenic climate change, they need only look at the case of Susan Crockford. Formerly an adjunct assistant professor in the Anthropology Department at the University of Victoria in Canada (UVic), Crockford now finds herself without a teaching position. After 15 years on the job, the university rejected her renewal application, with no reason given.
In this interview with The New American's Alex Newman, geologist Gregory Wrightstone explains that Al Gore and the climate-change establishment are lying about global warming, sea levels, wildfires, extinctions, carbon dioxide, and so much more. He says CO2 is a "miracle molecule" that is incredibly beneficial to humanity and the planet.
It used to be that Fagin types would merely recruit poor kids such as Oliver Twist to pickpockets, but today’s exploiters of innocence operate on a grander scale. The best current example may be 16-year-old Swedish “climate activist” Greta Thunberg (shown), who, it’s reported, is being financed by green corporate energy companies looking to turn a profit.
