Relax, The Climate Crisis Is Simply Not Happening! by The Elephant's Child

The Heartland Institute just held its 13th International Conference on Climate Change in Washington D.C. with an International group of speakers, featuring just the people we should be listening to. The scientific evidence indicates that the Climate Crisis everyone seems to be in a panic about simply is not happening.

The first science panel featured presentations by David Legates, PhD, Professor of climatology at the University of Delaware; Nir Shaviv,PhD, an astrophysicist at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and Roy Spencer, PhD, principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Dr, Spencer showed that climate modelers built incorrect assumptions into their models, which then produce false results that suggest humans will cause dangerous climate change.

Climate models’ global average temperature projections are what proposed energy policy changes are based upon, but they produce twice as much warming as is actually measured by global satellites and the average of four reanalyses,” Spencer said. “Reanalyses are global data sets [which include] all the observations they [scientists] can find—surface temperatures, weather balloons, commercial aircraft, ship [measurements], buoys, a variety of satellites. …

“The reanalysis data sets agree with the satellites that the climate models are producing too much warming,” said Spencer.

On a second panel, Craig Idso, PhD, founder and chairman of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change cited data that showed people in countries that used fossil fuels at higher rates – experienced less hunger or malnutrition, have greater production of foods, have longer lifespan, lower infant mortality rates, and significantly higher per capita GDP than countries with less access to fossil fuels. Fossil fuel energy use is fundamentally linked to economic growth.

The Energy and Economics Panel, featured Kevin Dayaratna, PhD, senior statistician and research programmer from the Heritage Foundation’s Center for Data Analysis, and Benjamin Zycher, PhD from the American Enterprise Institute spoke about the Green New Deal pushed by freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and endorsed by more than 100 Democrat or Independent members of the House and Senate, including all of those currently vying for the presidential nomination would cost trillions of dollars and provide little to no benefits whatsoever.

Dayaratna’s research indicates GND would result in an employment shortfall of 5.3 million jobs, a typical family for four would have a loss in income of $8,000 a year, amounting to a total loss of $165,000 per household through 2040. NOT exactly a winning issue.



Why This Sudden Explosion of “Racist”and “White Supremacist” Claims? by The Elephant's Child

You have undoubtedly heard many times today that the President of the United States is a “white supremacist” and a racist and that therefore the shootings in El Paso and Dayton were because of the president’s rhetoric. The proof that he is a white supremacist seems to be that he is worried about the influx of migrants from Central America. In case you had not noticed, natives of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador are apt to have brown skin, so any objection to the vast numbers trying to get across our Southern border is obviously “racist.”

The fact that they are trying to get into the country illegally, that they are borrowing children to appear as families, trying to get drugs across the border,claiming asylum to which they are not entitled, and simply trying to get into the country illegally in any way and by any route they can has nothing to do with anything: Donald Trump is ignoring the laws he is sworn to uphold and objecting to poor illegals entirely on the basis of their skin color.

Lets have a little straightforward honesty here. Democrats are terrified that American Blacks will notice that President Trump has dramatically changed the Black unemployment problem. Even more young black people are employed than ever before in history, and black unemployment is at historic lows. America Blacks understandably supported the first black president, and Democrats are deeply afraid they will lose that vote if they notice the financial improvement of near full employment. That’s why the Left is demonizing the president as a “racist” at every opportunity.

Democrats have a propaganda shop at the Center for American Progress, that sends out talking points and what they deem to be the best arguments for the Democratic Party. That’s why so many on the Left seem to be all saying the same thing at the same time, Surely you’ve noticed that sometimes it gets so obvious that they seem to be reading from a script. They forget to put the idea into their own words, or can’t figure out how, and just parrot the talking points.

Democrats have apparently missed the polls that show clearly that Americans want border control. They are trying hard to push for open borders, Democrats want to offer free health care to illegal aliens to encourage more. Insist that any effort to control the border is racist. They demonize ICE, (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) the agency that acts as a police force, enforcing our immigration laws, refer to the chain link fences Obama installed to control the kids, as Trump’s concentration camps.

You can get an idea of the talking points that were issues with the Democrat presidential candidates who were out uniformly talking racism and white supremacy.
