Global warming is so 1990s

Looks like those of us who called global warming a hoax are right.

The whole Chicken Little act fell apart with Climategate in 2009. The media just never reported it. But the National Review has a nice report on it this weekend on how the courts have caught up with the public on global warming.

From National Review:
The Supreme Court’s stay of the EPA’s sweeping Clean Power Plan (CPP) is one of several developments undermining the efforts of President Obama and his fellow climate zealots. The Obama administration expected the CPP to seal the U.N.’s first universal climate agreement, but now that the president’s grand plan has been put on hold until final judicial review on the merits, its fate will likely not be known until late 2017 at the earliest. Furthermore, the prospects for upholding the power plan are not that strong. As a legal condition of imposing the stay, the Supreme Court had to conclude that the EPA’s plan would likely be overruled in the Court’s final review.
Last December in Paris the climate agreement was declared a fait accompli, with representatives of around 190 countries expected to sign it on Earth Day (April 22) at the U.N.’s headquarters in New York. The Paris deal does not “enter into force” until at least 55 countries that together account for 55 percent of man-made greenhouse gases ink the document. But if President Obama’s grand plan to reduce CO2 remains in legal limbo for two more years, why would other countries go ahead and submit their economic future to the terms of the U.N. agreement?
Good question.

They won't.

Global warmalism is going the way of global coolingalism.

Stop and think about this. The liberal John Roberts court originally ordered the EPA to either disprove carbon dioxide is turning our planet into Hell On Earth or regulate it. The EPA did  Now the court is saying, wait a minute.


  1. Unfortunately, here in CO the Dems and Governor are pushing restrictions on Coal plants and on drilling/fracking. They truly do not understand or know the costs of energy. Nor do they really care as long as NO MORE COAL or OIL. Like to see them get by for a week with energy or products made from oil.

    1. The "Clean Power Plan" will be devastating here in Montana. We will not only lose a lot of high paying jobs in the coal industry, but our electricity rates will skyrocket:

      --Robert Bryce:

      If you want to irritate promoters of the Clean Power Plan, just state the obvious: It’s going to increase electricity prices, and that will be bad for the poor and the middle class. Last Monday, I made that very point during an interview on KPCC radio in Los Angeles, (“Air Talk with Larry Mantle”). My counterpart was David Doniger of the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), a group that has pushed hard for the Clean Power Plan. After I pointed out that electricity prices in Europe had soared due to renewable-energy mandates, Doniger replied with something to the effect that I should not be using “scare stories” that are a “decade old.”
      Consider Germany, which has mandated huge increases in renewable energy. Between early 2007 and late 2014, residential electricity prices (for households that consumed between 2,500 and 5,000 kilowatt-hours per year) rose by more than 40 percent, going from $0.23 cents to $0.33 per kilowatt-hour. Those prices — which are readily available on Eurostat and include all taxes — jumped at the same time Germany’s solar capacity increased 17-fold and wind capacity more than doubled.

      Eurostat data from Spain, which has also been on a renewable-energy binge, tells a similar story. Between 2007 and 2014, residential electric rates in Spain jumped by 70 percent. Over that same time period, wind capacity increased by about 50 percent and solar capacity grew about seven-fold. Spanish households are now paying some of the highest electricity prices in Europe, about $0.27 per kilowatt-hour, a rate that is more than twice the U.S. average.--

  2. I was just reading about another terrible crisis that was to be the end of life, well, at least it was expected to be shocking

    The Dangers of Electric Lighting

    Think about it, if Edison had won, there would be a power station every half mile or so with wires radiating out to power the electric lights. No doubt, you'd need your own coal-fired plant if you hoped to run your fridge and washer at the same time.

    And really, the man invented the electric light bulb, he was an expert.

  3. OT:

    Yesterday was the Quiet Water Symposium at Michigan State, which is for non-motorized use of the outdoors - kayaks, canoes, sailing, hiking - and so on. We with the USCG Auxiliary had our PA booth and one of us put on a presentation (because it is a symposium) on the effects of cold water. The presentation used this video:

    and I hijack this part of the comment thread for it. 70 degree water is cold water for a 98.6 body. If you go out, let someone know where you are going and when you will be back. Have a lifejacket on. Dress for the water temperature, not the air temperature. And visit the websites of the American Canoe Association, the US power Squadron or the US Coast Guard Auxiliary to learn more about water safety.

    Thanks for this indulgence, Mr. Surber.
