Best of 2015: Climate change hysteria and failed predictions

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The first global warming conference was in Rio in 1992. And they still tell us we’ve just got ten, five, maybe just one year left to save the world.

Do you remember Dr. David Viner from the Climate Research Unit, a top UN source? He said our children wouldn't know what snow was in 10 years.

That 15 years ago.

There’s this anti-global warming group called, funded by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. Their name comes from the theory that if carbon dioxide gets to be more than 350 parts per million, global warming will kill us. But carbon dioxide is now over 400 parts per million! And we're all still alive.

So how do these climate change hysterics get away with it?

I try to explain, while showing you some of the most inaccurate global warming predictions ever.

My first guest, Lorrie Goldstein, columnist at the Toronto Sun, talks about former Ontario Liberal premier Dalton McGuinty. He's trying to make a political comeback, even though he helped create Ontario's green energy multi-billion dollar boondoggle.

Then "happy warrior" Marc Morano of tells me about making mischief at the Paris COP21 climate conference.

i see there are still flat-earthers disputing what has been concluded by better than 97% of climate scientists. month after month and year after year we break temperature records and still some cannot admit they had it wrong. let’s move on people. this is a real thing and we can’t waste any more time injecting partisan politics into it.

Both sides of the argument present compelling evidence at this point, and both side undermine each other’s evidence… it has become difficult to follow the science. I would like to see some solid data behind the surging-global-treegrowth claim… And I’d like to hear Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s response to this presentation, or Bill Nye’s.

We’re all part of The Chicago’s School of Economics experiment.

Perhaps if they stopped chemtrailing nano sized aluminum and barium the heat wouldn’t be trapped, and the temps would normalize. A solution to a non existent problem. Great for Monsanto with their frankenseeds that grow well in aluminum poisoned soil.

This is one of the best statements I have ever heard on this subject.

PETER NETTERVILLE commented 7 days ago
“After Notley gets her carbon tax going provincially, and Trudeau does the same federally, and after Alberta’s power bills go way up to pay for a ill-thought-out and expensive “green energy” plan, Albertans will not have any money left from their pay cheques. Then as Trudeau ups the EI and CPP contributions and we will be broke, creating an indentured servitude working class. Tax the people to death and claim it is for anthropogenic Climate Change. Criminal!”

C02 is a greenhouse gas. By definition, a greenhouse gas is something that light can travel through but which traps heat. We are putting more of it into the atmosphere.
It’s only a little more complicated than 2+2.
The question is not IF global warming is happening, but HOW MUCH will happen.
For people who prefer data to spin, check the 5-year moving average of global temperatures produced by NASA:

John, just to clarify. Nome , Alaska is a small town in Alaska that is called the" North Pole" for tourist purposes which is nothing more than a large gift shop for the selling of Christmas items to tourists and is a lot farther south than the actual Magnetic North Pole. We have visited this place on our trip to Alaska and back. Don’t let these “Climate Change” idiots try to snow you under because they will try do it with incorrect information all the time just to further their misguided cause.

FYI, Time science report corrected their article and now mentions correction. (I had tweeted the author.) Question is now how can a major news site get the real North Pole mixed up with a little village in Alaska? (see my post below)

I cancelled subscriptions to National Geographic, MacLeans and the Edmonton Journal due to the bias to the leftist and Climate change hoax.
commented 2015-12-30 14:25:19 -0500
National Geographic is involved in promoting climate change hysteria and Watts Up With That mocks the fear-mongering imagery from National Geographic of the Statue of Liberty waste deep in water:, whose name as Ezra revealed, is out of date, is among the many environmental groups, including the Suzuki Foundation and Grrenpeace, that have signed on to Naomi Kleins’ Leap Manifesto:
Looking at the many organizations that have signed on underlines what Ezra has said about how the left has enabled and financed many community activist groups.

Ermahgerd, the North Pole is Melted! So says Time Science report. But wait! look close at the reference. It’s not the North Pole, its the little town of North Pole, Alaska. What a dishonest exaggeration!
Check this article. It is all over the news today. Full of misinformation. Then check the link to the source of the temperature. BTW today it is -30C in the real North Pole. Colder tomorrow.
North Pole, AK: +6C
North Pole, UK: a pleasant +12C.

Very god show Ezra. The problem with everything you stated is true. AND THERE is no way the left will ever understand what’s going to happen. GOD I HATE THE LEFT THINKING IN THIS COUNTRY.

*Ezra, you should take your ‘sciency-man-made-global-warming-chaos comedy routine on the road…I had a great this morning listening to it…
*Next time you have Mr. Goldstein on the show, could you ask him why the Toronto Sun stopped having a Comments section…I won’t read the Sun anymore because of that – and that means I don’t see any of their advertisers…
*Someone should tell Mr. Morano not to go on about his mug being on all those wanted posters for climate denier criminality…you know how it it with the useful-idiot, monkey-see, monkey-do sheep types…next thing, they’ll all want to be on wanted posters…

we need to ban dihydrogen monoxide next, because, although it is a naturally occurring compound, it could kill you, and think of the children!!

The Ontario AG was quoted as saying we are overpaying by $37 billion.
“In her annual report, she concluded ratepayers forked out $37 billion more than necessary from 2006 to 2014 and will spend an additional $133 billion by 2032 due to global adjustment electricity fees on hydro bills.”

All of these people making rules are “EDUCATED” or nerds basically. Remember when nerds were bullied and lived in fear? We had a better world then.

let us not forget that during the opec crisis in the 70’s all of the “experts” said that we would be out of fossil fuels by by the year 2000

The part on how Ontario gives priority to solar and wind needs to be told to every Canadian.

Maybe we should bring in once again many years ago, Old Testament times, if a prophet predicted something in the future and it never happened, they were simply stoned to death. That would end the cycle of bogus predictions repeating itself. This is so obviously rediculous.

The arrogance is not a worry.
The Ignorance of the Liberals should worry everybody.
My Granddaughter is a girl, a female— she doesn’t need a Liberal pervert to make her feel like a Boy.

Arrogance of Liberals—they think they’re the smartest people in the room, while the rest of us know what that means. Unfortunately, these pompous asses have the mic and the power at the moment, I pray that vigilance of those like Tim Ball, Roy Spencer, William Happer, Robert Pielke Jr., Freemond Dyson, John Christy, Richard Lindzen, Ross Mckitrick, Steve McIntyre, Murray Salby, Will Soon, the list goes on (a list much better informed and objective than our PM and Gerry Butts). in 10 years this hoax will die in a whimper and no-one will be held accountable for the accrued costs, not only in dollars but in human lives.

Is there nothing we can do to stop this Government robbery? I don’t want to be robbed by crooked Trudeau and Gerald Butts!
The y don’t deserve any of what I have worked for!

Lorrie Goldstein is far too polite and keeps saying “to be fair to McGuinty” etc. the system did need some upgrades.
What McGuilty was doing was using a normal maintenance/upgrade issue and blowing it out of proportion to create and justify the taxpayer ripoff scam.
It’s like me lodging a complaint about my mechanic and saying “to be fair to the mechanic, my vehicle did need to replace the spark plugs” but he probably didn’t have to rebuild the engine and transmission and charge me $9,000.
What went on was not a conspiracy. It was a legislated scam right out in the open, in front of everybodies face.
It is the same alternative energy scam done in many other provincial jurisdictions, Europe, Obama’s USA, etc. by government run or subsidized (some with guaranteed forgivable loans) with rigged rules passed (legislated) by themselves requiring the utilities to purchase their friends generated power first at exorbitant costs.
It should be called for what it is, laundering taxdollars.
The politicians aren’t in jail because they operate in a closed political shop system where they appoint their own Attorney General to make sure charges don’t proceed. et al Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch etc.

Good show, Ezra. Depressing, but informative.
