Paris Climate Conference, John Robson on gun rights & more

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

500 killed or injured in Paris just a few weeks ago, but now the world's leaders are there to talk about... the weather.

And spending other people's money, to talk over fine wines and gourmet foods, about going back home and spending more of other people's money.

Speaking of taxpayer dollars, the CBC is in full propaganda mode. They're acting like a "Sharknado" is on they way but for the efforts of the thousands of politicians and lobbyists at COP21.

Global warming science has long ago been repudiated.

If you still doubt it -- or know someone who does -- WATCH while I present the evidence.

NEXT:'s "resident historian" John Robson has a new project in the works, this time about gun rights. Like his most recent documentary, about Magna Carta, you can help bring this project to life. He'll explain how.

I'm also joined by Quebec journalist Eric Duhaime. He's watching the refugee situation in the province and brings you a perspective you won't get anywhere else.

As always, I end the show with viewer feedback. Be sure to tell me what you think in the comments or via Twitter, Facebook and email. We give all that contact information out at the end of the show.

Why is it when I bring up the topic of the rebel always asking for money, that the comeback is always something CBC related? Look at CTV or Global. They don’t ask us for our money. There has to be a better way of running a website that does not constantly ask us for some kind of a donation. This place already makes money off youtube ads and banner ads. I am not paying for things like Ezra’s flight and accomodation to France, another poll, or yet another new URL name.

As Ezra pointed out ,“Global warming science has long ago been repudiated” as the 2009 Climategate revealed it to be a fraud, and should have brought down the whole house of cards! He cited one of the exposed Climategate emails, Kevin Trenberth with the National Center for Atmospheric Research, saying, “The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.” Nobel Prize Laureate Dr. Ivar Giaever, noting as well, that global temperatures have halted over the past 18 years (“the pause”), logically concluded “When you have a theory and the theory does not agree with the experiment then you have to cut out the theory. You were wrong with the theory.”
Ezra referred to those adherents of this “sham”, a “rhetorical trick”, as upholding a “superstition” or a “religious thing”. Dr. Giaver said much the same, “ Global warming really has become a new religion . Because you cannot discuss it. It’s not proper.” Accordingly, you have Justin Trudeau declaring in Paris that “the science is unquestionable”, that is, it can’t be questioned; you must believe, and “there can be no laggards”. “Laggards” are verboten !
When it comes to Paris, Ezra notes “There isn’t really even any science anymore.” However, just as Obama’s position on marriage ‘evolved’ so the high priests of the religion of climate change, er, global warming ‘scientists’, have evolved in creating a new corrupted, abnormal form of ‘science’, known as Post Normal Science (PNS), to protect their narrative no matter what, like Rudyard Kipling’s fanciful “Just So Stories” to explain various phenomena. Under PNS, it is not so much an enterprise to pursue the truth, but, rather, its purpose is to serve a post-modern, politically-correct (‘progressive’) agenda. Thus, Mike Hulme, very active in the global warming movement and once described as “one of the UK’s most distinguished and high-profile climate scientists” and one of the exponents of post-normal science has said, “[The] chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, recently urged the media to focus on the ‘scientific rationale for action’ rather than the political aspects of climate…I disagree… In the end , politics will always trump science … we need better politics , not better science ”.
There you have it, as summarized by the placards carried by the left-wing environmentalists: “ System change , not climate change !”. Just like Trudeau’s adviser, Gerald Butts, advocating building an entire Marxist alternative, a utopian world with no fossil fuel energy: “the real alternative is not an alternative route; it is an alternative economy”.
A clip from the documentary “It’s Easy Being Green When You Have No Choice” explaining why Post Normal Science is dangerous:

Of the 117 climate models , why is it that nobody can tell me that these things work in reverse and account for the past ,climate, which is recorded..If they were independently and in an un-altered manner, reversed ,these models should account for the past … Seems essential they accomplish this before we accept them as valid structures upon which to base future environmental policy.
commented 2015-12-01 20:10:24 -0500
Enough is enough of this left wing climate change lunacy. Governments want to tax progress, crush industries and spend millions to control pollution yet 15 of the worlds largest cargo ships burning unscrubbed bunker sea oil produce as much pollution in a year as all of the worlds automobiles.- The worlds 90,000 ocean going vessels produce annually over 260 times the amount of pollution of all of the worlds vehicles combined .Halifax alone brought in over 140 cruise ships this year creating more pollution than all of the vehicles in Canada combined.Where is the outcry? This does not include trains and planes.

I wonder how Getachew would feel if people emailed him suggesting that he be deported for un-Canadian values? I bet he would be steaming angry and screaming “racism”. He reminds me of Quebec demonstrators twenty years ago screaming at natives, “Go back to where you come from.”

As for “Climate Change”, its been happening ever since Earth developed its first atmosphere some 4.5 billion years ago. If you don’t agree with those suggesting that mankind is responsible for “Climate Change”, you are called a “denier”. I call those who believe in a man-made climate apocalypse “Chicken Littles”. CO2 levels are at their lowest in millions of years, about 1/10 to 1/20 of historical levels. Its plant food, and each human generates about 40 tonnes during a lifetime by simply breathing. Tossing out numbers of how much “carbon” we generate is minuscule compared to the enormity of our atmosphere, so lets all spend trillions of dollars for nothing. Absolute genius in their own minds.

It was a scant 16,000 years ago that the planet started warming to the point that now most of North America and most of Europe is no longer covered by a three kilometre thick sheet of ice. Was that, too, caused by man?

We are one major volcanic eruption away from global freezing, followed by a greenhouse effect of high temperatures. I guess we should diaper planet Earth.

Russian scientists predict another ice age or sever cooling coming soon. My prediction, whether mankind ceases to exist tonight or not, is that the planet will be warmer, cooler, or remain the same. And I bet this prediction is 100% accurate.

interesting article in the ultra left wing guardian.. only 3 countries matter in the least at this ecoterrorist convention.. the USA, China and India… what does liberal leader gerald butts have to say about that?
commented 2015-12-01 17:04:19 -0500
Science can’t predict the weather day to day with any accuracy and I’m expected they can predict and control weather years from now. These climate activists/goons think their gods and can control the sun. I’m not a climate denier I’m a skeptic of junk science for profit. Do we need to clean up our act? Yes but not by giving billions to an unelected body of dictators. (The UN)
commented 2015-12-01 14:51:52 -0500
Dr Genius,
Why is it that global temperatures have stayed the same for the last two decades?

It is the UN who are juggling the numbers, these Marxist are creating a false perspective of what is really happening.

If we were able to lower our CO2 emissions to what the UN is calling for, every Plant and Tree on the planet would die.

Hi Ezra. As usual, always an informative program done in good taste. What a refreshing change from the spin of the media party. I want to continue to support The Rebel Media and also the specific initiatives such as the anti-Christian bigotry fight being taken on by John Carpay. For people like myself that do not want to donate over the web, could you make it clear as to how we can provide support with our cheques to these specific initiatives. Keep up the good work my friend!

If I had any lingering doubts that Trudeau is an AGW fascist, he dispelled them yesterday by saying this at Paris:

“There is no point bending over backward if your neighbor or your government is not also doing its part to ensure that we all have the maximal impact together. There can be no laggards in this.”

To which I say: Screw that. If any moron out there wishes to have his taxes raised based on the phony case made so far by so-called ‘science’ that can’t even make an accurate prediction based on its so-called theory, be my guest, but I won’t be joining you unless I am forced to by elected morons who, like you, have been conned by the AGW scam.

Trudeau’s assertion that “there can be no laggards in this”, referring to “neighbors”, is another way of saying “no dissidence allowed, no dissidents tolerated” in his crusade to ‘save the planet’. This is fascism, plain and simple. But what else should we have expected from someone who admitted admiring dictatorship as a form of government?

Ezra, thank you for being on this file and making it a priority at THEREBEL.MEDIA. AGW is one of the biggest scams every run on the human race, and THEREBEL.MEDIA is, as far as I know, the ONLY media outlet in Canada opposing it. KUDOS to you and everyone at THEREBEL.MEDIA for being on this file with a consistent contrarian viewpoint.

Great show , good to hear from our voice in Quebec Eric Duhaime, also will support the great historian John Robson, and

can we deport Sam Getachew. please send him back to Ethiopia so he can write his piece at the Huffpost.

I long for the days when climate change was called SEASONS.

But you can’t create a global tax with SEASONS.

But you sure can create lots of taxes by brainwashing the sheeple with climate change.

Here…..take my money, the climate is changing – stupid sheeple / stupid Canadians.

What is the link to verify that the Valcartier is building a mosque and preparing halal meals for the refugees? I’d like to know… I can’t find anything on the web about this.
commented 2015-12-01 06:57:43 -0500
I wonder how Sam Young thinks things get paid for. I just bristle at the thought of the money (our money) available to the CBC to indoctrinate and harvest masses to work on their Liberal plantation. How else can we prop up our own microphone except with the support of those of us who agree on issues such as free speech and right to bear arms for example. I will admit that I have not yet made a donation, but if I could I would support someone who represents in general what I believe. The preservation of our individual rights!

There is no weird anomaly called “climate change”. It’s proper term is climate variability and has been happening since the earth was formed. These climate change advocates are in it for domination and cash. Check out the bio from Andrew Heintzman from Investeco < a href=“”“>”>here. He was appointed by Dalton McGuinty to Chair the Climate Change Advisory Panel from 2008 to 2012 while he was a co-founder and CEO of a private equity firm that invests in “green” companies. Indeed, this guy helped shape public policy to enhance his private business. Does anyone see a conflict of interest here?
Yep, he wrote a few books that no one read either and a couple of them were co-authored by CBC’s former art dealer – Evan Solomon. Some of these “literary tomes” had a forward by Eric Schlosser. Who the hell is he, you might ask? Schlosser happens to be Robert Redford’s son in law. Besides being an actor, Redford is also an environmental activist who is trustee with the <a href=“”">">Natural Resources Defense Council.</a>
Does the NRDC happen to launder money through Tides Canada to influence our national policy? Inquiring minds would like to know.

Ezra, is it possible that you have guests on your show that are actually REAL guests? Not that I have anything against Sheila, Paige, Robson, or Ball, but they are NOT guests. They are regular contributors on this website. I already have a good idea where they stand on their favourite topics of choice, and I am not going to get much more out of seeing them on your show. You can’t expect us to pay a subscription to see you interview your staff members.

And what is with the constant grovelling for our money? I can’t hardly go through a day without somebody at the rebel asking for some kind of a donation. I wish Robson the best of luck on his documentary, but I would like to not get bombarded with getting asked for donations. Sorry, but I am not going to be giving any money to Robson’s documentary.

Ezra, when your show stops being free, I hope your opening monologues are still available for everybody to see for free. Tonight’s monologue, in particular, was great. Everybody should have access to hearing what you have to say on climate change and the politics behind it.
commented 2015-12-01 02:35:30 -0500
Yes Ezra, your comments about Samuel Getachew’s criticisms are pinpoint accurate. WELL SAID!!!!!
Also, I agree with LLRFU that “The Other Side of the Story” is a great fit for what this show is doing.
Great work! Thank you for providing us with the ‘other side’. You give voice for those of us who want to preserve true Canadian values. It takes courage to ask the difficult questions and call out the idiocy of “Canadians” who disrespect Canada by not adopting her values (yes, I am referring to our ‘Mosque building’ federal government, amongst others). Thanks for having the guts to take this on.

Samuel Getachew wants to deport Ezra? That’s really rich!

I’ve always maintained that the Left “leave out half the facts”. So yeah Ezra – The Other Side of the Story is good in my books. Cheers!!
commented 2015-12-01 01:10:21 -0500
It was very much on my mind of late, this issue of one’s inherent right to protect themselves, particularly, when the state fails or refuses to do so. Or in fact, the right to defend one’s self against a state gone rogue, as ours surely has. So it’s ironic Dr Robson was thinking the same thing, and I’m really looking forward to his documentary. I’m sure there’s a legal argument that even the activist judges will have trouble denying. Perhaps it’s built in to our right to “security of the person”.
commented 2015-12-01 00:22:13 -0500
AGW has now become the official state religion of Canada, and the purpose of Paris is to proselytize it onto the rest of the world, as well as to spread the religious fervor of the AGW faithful in Canada, which is now UN AGW headquarters. Watch for Trudeau to kowtow to every piece of UN propaganda to subjugate Canada to the UN agenda to tax the First World industrialized countries on carbon emissions and funnel the money to Third World dictatorships, which Trudeau won’t have any problem with, since he considers dictatorships to be an admirable form of government, at least to him. As someone said here a while ago, “oh are we screwed”, or words to that effect.

Acuuna asks, “so just how does higher taxes lower the temperature of the earth?”

I think that as they take more from us peasants our attitude towards the government gets chillier. Hence, the mean temperature of the planet is lowered. ;o)
