Climate skeptics are welcome in Trump's America: Here's what they talk about (GUEST: Tom Harris)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Great things are happening in the American oil and gas sector. They're in the midst of a boom.

South of the border, our American friends are drilling, pumping, building pipelines and exporting like never before, while here in Canada it can take a decade just to get to “no” on a pipeline.

But the fossil fuel industry isn't just the only thing booming and being liberated from government regulation in the United States.

The ability to freely discuss fossil fuels and their effect on the environment is also exploding under President Trump:

Unlike in Canada, where our moral and intellectual superiors in government and at the state broadcaster scold climate change skeptics as uneducated rubes, prominent figures and scientists can have dissenting opinions on man-made global warming without being run off the airwaves and run out of a job.

My guest tonight is Tom Harris of the International Climate Science Coalition. He's fresh off one of those rigorous discussions they're allowed to have in the United States - the 13th Annual Heartland International Conference on Climate Change.

He joins me to talk about the success of that conference held at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC.

Just like Andrew’s “evidence” for babies as parasites we still await the fall of John Wick’s hammer.

They might have. They might not have. It’s still not a complete list (they include bedbugs and lice, but not ticks)…
And again you provide nothing to support your opinion whatsoever. The old awaits your evidence form a recognized authority on parasites that include humans in the list.

This is why no one should ( nor do they) take anything you say seriously. Someone who is
a) this stupid
b) this desperate to believe a lie,

is not to be repeated or believed in anything else they say.

No one does respect or believe you. Well, maybe John Wick. I’ll give you that one.

Am really enjoying my Golf R. Tearing up the streets, burning that Hi-Octane fuel. Thinking about the money I saved over buying an Electric Vehicle, I just cannot help myself. I can drive 600km’s before I need to refuel. Yes, these days are going to stick around for a long, long time. Without rebates, sales of E-Vehicles would grind to a halt, as only the Rich could afford them. Or at least the ones that can actually get you anywhere. Odd, that taxpayers are paying for the Rich to purchase their vehicles. End the Rebates!!!

Good point on the media. I am constantly frustrated by reports saying that “Scientist say; or found or whatever” without even indicating which scientist let along looking for alternate opinions.

In From There to Here, I wrote: “Also climate change is big business: For the media catastrophic climate change makes for sensational stories. For Environmental Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s) it helps raise donations. They tell you that the world is coming to an end, so donate so they can fight the evil villains. For Politicians, they can claim to be saving the world. One actually had the tenacity to suggest that the oceans would stop rising and the earth would heel because of his election. For Businesses, it is good to look green. For the Environmental businesses there are subsidies, guarantees, carbon credits and bail outs to be had. For Consultants and other Professionals, there is the business of advising business and NGO’s on how to navigate the rules, and obtain grants, subsidies and guarantees. For Academics and Universities, there are research grants and other public and private money to pursue. Climate Change is big business; I call it the Climate Change Gravy Train.”

A Message from Canada…
…really good ad for Canada’s necessary energy source.

Sorry not so good Like the industry in general (like CAPP, they buy into the UN’s hoax of man-made climate change, and thus, in my view pm are complicit as far as the disastrous consequences for our economy.

“(Not babies. They might have mentioned them if they were included) "

They might have. They might not have. It’s still not a complete list (they include bedbugs and lice, but not ticks).. Also,not being a canonical “parasite” – which I’ll concede that many observers don’t although the term does not have a firm definition – does not mean it’s not a parasitic relationship. (Is it parasitic, symbiotic, or somewhere in between?)

Oh yeah those turbine blades are not in any way recyclable , so they are massive amounts of GARBAGE!!!"

EVs have been growing so fast that the drop in demand following Ford’s cuts only drop it back to 2017 levels. It doubled, then halved. Not as bad as it looks (it’s up 50% in Quebec and BC, enough that national sales increased) . Something else to bear in mind is that changes in policy distort the market themselves. If you have 10,000 potential buyers looking to buy in the next six months, then announce a sale is ending, 8000 of those will advance their plans to take advantage. Instead of getting 5000 buyers every 3 months, you get 8000 then 2000, which makes the drop look even steeper. A year later, a new pool of buyers has entered and it restabilizes, and resumes its 50% annual growth.

At least partly because of wind turbines, methods of recycling fibreglass have been developed in the last few years. (the blades are not typically a wear item, rather only needing replacement for damage). You can thank wind turbines, as your boat, camper, or truck cap is now recyclable, which it was not five years ago.

Although they have not “yet” been identified as specific parasites in Science, there are studies being done on what will (in time) be known as the Liberal Parasite. They include (but are not limited to) Bloodsucking Parasites. Mosquitos, Bed Bugs, Ticks, Fleas, Lice, Mites, some Flies, Leeches, and Liberals have made the list to date.

Keith Barnes,
thank you for that well said comment.
I learned something I was not aware of and yet at the same time, I always wondered why the most southern lands in the southern hemisphere are not covered in snow as our most northerly lands.
Now I understand.
Excellent point!

Please be advised that Andy Panda (aka The Boil on the Arse of Humanity) has surfaced again and is now conversing in Triplespeak.(George Orwell sequel….)
The tried and true antidote/cure/best defense for this apparition is…..non-acknowledgment.
It seems too simple to work but…..it has been noted on numerous previous occasions….that the virus retreats when not fed…..

Ah, yes, the left wing corrupt and evil UN, and their agenda 21, which has now been changed to agenda 2030 because they ran out of time. Largely because Trump got elected and threw a wrench into their plans for global Marxist tyranny.

Ah, yes, Mr-Babies-Are-Parasites. Not sure who you are taking money from. Let me guess Planned Parenthood? Still holding to that old lie, I take it?

Still no evidence for the opinions you spout? Business as usual.

Here is an extensive list of the categories of parasites. You will no doubt be quick to admit that babies do not appear. Or would you like to keep believing that lie?


These live inside the host. They include heartworm, tapeworm, and flatworms. An intercellular parasite lives in the spaces within the host’s body, within the host’s cells. They include bacteria and viruses.

There are three main types of parasites.

Protozoa: Examples include the single-celled organism known as Plasmodium. A protozoa can only multiply, or divide, within the host.

Helminths: These are worm parasites. Schistosomiasis is caused by a helminth. Other examples include roundworm, pinworm, trichina spiralis, tapeworm, and fluke.

Ectoparasites: These live on, rather than in their hosts. They include lice and fleas.

Here is a much longer list of parasites that also never mentions human babies as such but no doubt this list is not exhaustive enough for all knowing Andrew:

Human parasites
Many types of parasites can affect humans. Here are some examples of parasites and the diseases they can cause.


This tiny ameba can affect the eye, the skin, and the brain. It exists all over the world in water and soil. Individuals can become infected if they clean contact lenses with tap water.


This disease that comes from parasites that are spread by ticks. It affects the red blood cells. The risk is highest in summer in the Northeast and upper Midwest of the United States.


This is passed on by Balatidium coli, a single-cell parasite that usually infects pigs but can, in rare cases, cause intestinal infection in humans. It can be spread through direct contact with pigs or by drinking contaminated water, usually in tropical regions.


This affects the intestines. The blastocystis enters humans through the fecal-oral route. A person can get it by eating food or drink contaminated with human or animal feces where the parasite is present.


This affects the intestines. Coccidia is passed on through the fecal-oral route. It is found around the world. It can also affect dogs and cats, but these are different kinds. Dogs, cats, and humans cannot normally infect each other.


This is caused by the parasite Entamoeba histolytica. It affects the intestines. It is more likely in tropical regions and in areas with high population density and poor sanitation. It is transmitted through the fecal-oral route.


Giardia, or “beaver fever” affects the lumen of the small intestine. If humans ingest food or water contaminated with feces, dormant cysts may infect the body.

Isosporiasis or cystosporiasis

This disease is caused by the Cystoisospora belli, previously known as Isospora belli. It affects the epithelial cells of the small intestine. It exists worldwide and is both treatable and preventable. It is passed on through the fecal-oral route.


This is a disease that is passed on by parasites of the Leishmania family. It can affect the skin, the viscera, or the mucous membranes of the nose, mouth, and throat. It can be fatal. The parasite is transmitted by types of sandflies.

Primary amoebic meningoencephalitis (PAM)

This is passed on through a free-living ameba known as Naegleria fowleri. It affects the brain and the nervous system, and it is nearly always fatal within 1 to 18 days. It is transmitted through breathing in contaminated soil, swimming pools, and contaminated water, but not from drinking water.


Different types of plasmodium affect the red blood cells. It exists in tropical regions and is transmitted by the Anopheles mosquito.


This is caused by Rhinosporidium seeberi. It mainly affects the mucous of the nose, conjunctiva, and urethra. It is more common in India and Sri Lanka but can occur elsewhere. Polyps result in nasal masses that need to be removed through surgery. Bathing in common ponds can expose the nasal mucous to the parasite.


This is a parasitic pneumonia caused by the parasite Toxoplasma gondii. It affects the liver, heart, eyes and brain. It occurs worldwide. People can become infected after ingesting raw or undercooked pork, lamb, goat, or milk, or though contact with food or soil that is contaminated with cat feces.

A person with a healthy immune system will not usually have symptoms, but it can pose a risk during pregnancy and for those with a weakened immune system.


Also known as “trich” this is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the parasite Trichomonas vaginalis. It affects the female urogenital tract. It can exist in males, but usually without symptoms.

Trypanomiasis (Sleeping sickness)

This is passed on when the tetse fly transmits a parasite of the Trypanosoma family. It affects the central nervous system, blood, and lymph. It leads to changes in sleep behavior, among other symptoms, and it is considered fatal without treatment. It can cross the placenta and infect a fetus during pregnancy.

Chagas disease

This affects the blood, muscle, nerves, heart, esophagus and colon. It is transmitted through an insect bite. Over 300,000 people in the U.S. have the parasite that can lead to this disease.

Worms, or helminth organisms, can affect humans and animals.

Anisakiasis: This is caused by worms that can invade the intestines or the stomach wall. The worms are passed on through contaminated fresh or undercooked fish and squid.

Ascaris roundworms are passed on by raccoons.
Roundworms can be passed on by raccoons.
Roundworm: Ascariasis, or a roundworm infection, does not usually cause symptoms, but the worm may be visible in feces. It enters the body through consuming contaminated food or drink.

Raccoon roundworm: Baylisascaris is passed on through raccoon stools. It can affect the brain, lungs, liver, and intestines. It occurs in North America. People are advised not to keep raccoons as pets for this reason.

Clonorchiasis: Also known as Chinese liver fluke disease, this affects the gall bladder. Humans can become infected after ingesting raw or poorly processed or preserved freshwater fish.

Dioctophyme renalis infection: The giant kidney worm can move through the wall of the stomach to the liver and eventually the kidney. Humans can become infected after eating the eggs of the parasite in raw or undercooked freshwater fish.

Diphyllobothriasis tapeworm: This affects the intestines and blood. Humans can become infected after eating raw fish that live wholly or partly in fresh water. Prevalence has increased in some parts of the developed world, possibly due to the growing popularity of sushi, salted fillets, ceviche, and other raw-fish dishes.

Guinea worm: This affects subcutaneous tissues and muscle and causes blisters and ulcers. The worm may be visible in the blister. As the worms are shed or removed, they enter the soil or water, and are passed on from there.

Hookworms can cause intestinal disease.
Hookworms can cause intestinal disease.
Hookworm: These can cause intestinal disease. They lay their eggs in soil and the larvae can penetrate the skin of humans. Early symptoms include itching and a rash. They are most common in damp places with poor sanitation.

Hymenolepiasis: Humans can become infected by ingesting material contaminated by rodents, cockroaches, mealworms, and flour beetles.

Echinococcosis tapeworm: Cystic echinococcosis can lead to cysts in the liver and lungs, and alveolar echinococcosis can cause a tumor in the liver. Humans can be infected after eating foods contaminated by the feces of an infected animal, or from direct contact with an animal.

Enterobiasis pinworm: A pinworm, or threadworm, Enterobius vermicularis can live in the colon and rectum of humans. The worm lays eggs around the anus while a person sleeps, leading to itching. It spreads through the oral-fecal route.

Fasciolosis liver fluke: This affects the gall bladder and liver. It is common in countries where cattle or sheep are reared, but rare in the U.S. It can affect the liver and the bile ducts and it causes gastrointestinal symptoms. It passes from one mammal to another through snails. A person may get it from eating watercress, for example.

Fasciolopsiasis intestinal fluke: This affects the intestines. It can also transmitted when consuming contaminated water plants or water.

Gnathostomiasis: This causes swellings under the skin, and occasionally affects the liver, the eyes, and the nervous system. It is rare, but it can be fatal. It occurs in Southeast Asia. It is transmitted by eating freshwater fish, pigs, snails, frogs, and chicken.

Loa loa filariasis: Also known as loaisis, this is caused by the Loa loa worm, or African eye worm. It causes itchy swellings on the body. It occurs mainly in Central and West Africa and is transmitted through deerfly bites.

Mansonellosis: This is passed on through the bites of midges or blackflies. It affects the layers under the surface of the skin, but it can enter the blood. It can lead to angioedema, swellings, skin rash, fever, and joint problems. It is present in Africa and Cental America.

River blindness: Caused by a worm known as Onchocerca volvulus, this affects the eyes, skin, and other body tissues. It is found near fast flowing water. It is transmitted through the bite of a blackfly. It occurs in South America, but 90 percent of cases are in Africa.

Lung fluke: Also known as paragonimiasis, this affects the lungs, causing symptoms similar to those of tuberculosis (TB). However, it can reach the central nervous system, leading to meningitis. It is transmitted when eating undercooked or raw freshwater crabs, crayfishes, and other crustaceans. It is most common in parts of Asia.

Schistosomiasis, bilharzia, or snail fever: There are different types of schistosomiasis. They can affect the skin and internal organs. It results from exposure to fresh water that has snails in it that are infected with the blood fluke, or trematode worm. The worms are not found in the U.S. but they are common worldwide.

Sparganosis: Humans can become infected if they eat foods tainted with dog or cat feces that contains the larvae of a tapeworm of the Spirometra family. It can lead to a migrating abscess under the skin. It is rare.

Strongyloidiasis: This can lead to severe and possibly fatal immunodeficiency. The parasite penetrates through the skin and affects the lungs, skin, and intestines. It is passed on through direct contact with contaminated soil. It most occurs in tropical and subtropical regions.

Different types of tapeworm can affect the intestines, the liver, or the lungs.
Beef and pork tapeworms: Taeniasis is caused by tapeworms of the taenia family. They affect the intestines. They are passed on by eating undercooked beef or pork.

Toxocariasis: A roundworm transmits this infection from animals to humans. It affects the eyes, brain, and liver. It is caused by accidentally swallowing the eggs of the parasite, for example, when young children play with soil. Nearly 14 percent of people in the U.S. have antibodies, suggesting that millions have been exposed. Most never have symptoms.

Trichinosis: This is caused by the roundworm of the Trichinella family. Infection can lead to intestinal symptoms, fever, and muscle aches. It is passed on by eating undercooked meat.

Whipworm: Also known as trichuriasis, whipworms live in the large intestine. Eggs are passed in feces. It is common all over the world. Humans can become infected when ingesting the eggs, for example on unwashed fruit or vegetables.

Elephantiasis lymphatic filariasis: This is transmitted through mosquito bites. The adult worms live in the lymph system. Infection can lead to lyphedema and elephantiasis, in which swelling can cause disfigurement and disability. In the Americas, it is passed on by the Culex quinquefasciatus mosquito.

Ringworm is sometimes mistaken for a worm, but it is not a worm. It is a fungal infection.

These are parasites that live on the outside of the body, such as fleas.

bed bug
Bed bugs are ectoparasites: They live on the outside of the body.
Bedbug: These can affect the skin and vision. They are found all over the world. Sharing clothing and bedding can spread infection. They may be present in newly rented accommodation and hotel rooms.

Body lice: These are common worldwide. Infection can spread through sexual activity, skin-to-skin contact, and sharing bedding or clothing.

Crab lice: These affect the pubic area and eyelashes. They are common all over the world and spread through sexual activity, skin-to-skin contact, and sharing bedding or clothing.

Demodex: These affect the eyebrow and eyelashes. They are common all over the world and can spread through prolonged skin contact.

Scabies: This affects the skin. It is common all over the world and can spread through sexual activity, skin-to-skin contact, and sharing bedding or clothing.

Screwworm: This is transmitted by a fly, and it affects skin and wounds. It is found in Central America and North Africa.

Head lice: These live on the scalp and affect the hair follicles. They are common all over the world and spread through head-to-head contact. A reaction to their saliva causes itching.

(Not babies. They might have mentioned them if they were included)

As the Earth rotates it wobbles, so that the Geographic poles shift positions in their spin. Right now the wobble is causing the Northan Hemesphere to become more exposed to the sun, hence the warming. REmember when the Vikings descovered Greenland, it was just that, Green and the Vikings settled there as farmers.
Right now the earth is shifting back to that position of the Viking days.”

The axial wobble is a 41,000 year cycle. It is about 40,000 years from returning to where it was when the Vikings were trying to sell tundra as ‘farmland". It wasn’t called Greenland because it was green, that was a real estate scam. Some of that ice is a million years old.

The astronomical cycles predict cooling, which is why they were worried about an imminent ice age half a century ago, before human influenced warming became apparent.
