collectively supply 84% of the world’s energy. It began with the fear
that we were running out of oil. That fear has since migrated to the
belief that, because of climate change and other environmental
concerns, society can no longer tolerate burning oil, natural gas, and
coal – all of which have turned out to be abundant.

Mark J. Perry
In a New York Times
article reporter Nadja Popovich wrote that “Last year, the solar
industry employed many more Americans [373,807] than coal [160,119],
while wind power topped 100,000 jobs.” But simply reporting rather
enthusiastically that the solar industry employs lots of Americans,
more than twice as many as the number of coal miners and utility
workers at electric power plants using coal, is only telling a small

Reveal Global Warming a Deliberate Fraud
Dr. Tim Ball
IPCC Reports and especially the SPM Reports are the basis for Kyoto and
the Copenhagen Accord, but now we know they are based on completely
falsified and manipulated data and science. It is no longer a
suspicion. Surely this is the death knell for the CRU, the IPCC, Kyoto
and Copenhagen and the Carbon Credits shell game.

Astonishingly, other oil producing nations
whose reserves are ranked behind the U.S. are Russia, Saudi Arabia,
China, Iran, and Canada. The only oil "shortage" in the U.S. is one
created by Congress and the energy policies of a succession of past
presidents. An estimated 87% of our oil reserves remain untouched.

Climate scientist Chris de Freitas described
