This article explains the record of Brett Kavanaugh on climate issues in the past. While he is certainly a believer in the hypothesis, he is not in favour of the law intervening where politicians have not legislated.
Here's an interesting post from Alan Carlin. He appears to believe that President Trump is unwilling to take on the climate change establishment head on. I think he is probably right. The climate change mob is like a multi-headed hydra. As soon as you think you have defeated one branch you find it has morphed into something else. The President cannot afford to spend too much political capital on this area, even though it is costing his country a large sum of money.
Will the UK risk being plunged into the dark after Brexit as a result of the EU shutting down the electricity supply we have come to rely on from the interconnector cable across the Channel? According to this post it is a possibility. Here is an extract from the quite lengthy post "To keep our grid functioning, we also have to import 11 percent of our power from France and the Netherlands. And over the next 12 years, according to National Grid, we plan to more than quadruple the current 4 gigawatt (GW) capacity of our interconnectors (to 18.5GW) via new cables from France, Belgium, Norway and Iceland.
These new power supplies will be vitally necessary to keep the grid functioning when it is planned that 68 percent of our generating capacity will derive from weather-dependent wind and solar, which can plummet towards zero at any time. However, the ability to buy power from our neighbours relies on the fact that we are part of the "European Energy Market", which sets the complex rules that allow it to operate."
Here is an account of the policy of a number of large Western banks. In recent years, these banks have embraced manmade climate change alarmism as a key foundation for their lending policies. In particular, they refuse to fund the development of electric power generation via fossil fuels – thereby starving impoverished nations and families of desperately needed electricity.
Thankfully for the sidelined nations, Chinese banks have begun helping to finance coal- and gas-fired power in Asia and Africa. In the process, they have gained tremendous political and strategic leverage, at the expense of the United States, Europe
This post shows the mammoth task of the government if it is to convert motorists from internal combustion engines to electric. As the article demonstrates, there is little prospect of them succeeding. The plan looks more like wishful thinking, paying lip service in order to show that they are trying. But in reality this changeover would require a much greater effort. I suspect we will se a lot more of the stick than the carrot as it is cheaper for the government.
This article confirms it's business as usual at the USA's EPA changes its leader due to the resignation of Scott Pruitt. That is good news for those who want to see the roll back of state control of energy use and production.
Another scandal has been uncovered as in this article. Yet again we are being given exaggerated information about energy use of equipment. How are manufacturers allowed to get away with it? Does this mean our national CO2 emissions are also wrong? Almost certainly.
This post puts our recent hot weather into perspective by looking back to the 1930's. The statistics are impressive and speak for themselves. Many people have very short memories and so they are easily convinced that today is exceptional, but when the records are consulted the truth emerges.
Here's the good news as per the headline. In the first half of this year we have seen weak solar activity and La Nina conditions acting to cool the globe’s surface. Moreover Arctic and Antarctic ice mass have grown in comparison to the previous years. It sounds unreal when we are basking in a heat wave here in the UK, but there are many other places where colder conditions are occurring.
