Inevitable: Qantas, Virgin Airlines Passing Australia’s Carbon Tax Along to Consumers

By Doug Powers  •  July 11, 2011 09:45 AM

**Written by Doug Powers Australia is debuting a carbon tax much like the one Al Gore has proposed for the United States. A few details: In Australia, the federal government launched plans for a $23 per tonne tax on carbon, which will affect the country’s 500 largest polluters commencing July 1, 2012. “By 2020 our […]

Cancun Climate Summit Scientists Call for **Rationing in the Developed World (**Exceptions: Climate Change Summits & Al Gore)

By Doug Powers  •  November 29, 2010 03:18 PM

**Written by Doug Powers For the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Cancun, which began today, representatives from somewhere in the neighborhood of 194 countries flew to Mexico from all around the world. Why? Well, partly to tell the rest of us we need to chill out on the long-haul flights: In one paper Professor […]

Heads up: Cap and tax showdown is coming

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 13, 2010 05:08 PM

Get ready. Here it comes. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid revealed today that he has a draft cap-and-tax monstrosity in the works. The Dems are gearing up for debate this month. Or rather, “debate.” Remember what Democrat Max Baucus said about his own colleagues — they don’t know “what the heck” they are doing as […]

Stuck on stupid: Obama’s czar fetish

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 15, 2010 11:25 PM

In his widely-panned, bloodless Oval Office address Tuesday night (did I call this last month or what!?), President Obama tapped his Navy Secretary Ray Mabus as the new oil spill recovery czar. Doesn’t he have enough to do leading the Navy? More to the point, as my latest column below points out, don’t we have […]

Senate showdown over EPA power grab; Update: Murkowski resolution fails, 47-53

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 10, 2010 09:54 AM

Scroll for updates… I’m still on my family vacation, but wanted to pop in to spotlight today’s important Senate battle over the EPA war on carbon. It’s a subject we’ve covered here over the past year (reminders here and here that opposition to the Obama regulatory power grab is crossing party lines). The Hill reports […]

John McCain: Unrepentant Climate Change Republican; Update: Lindsay Graham pushes carbon caps

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 25, 2010 11:22 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, I call your attention to the key passage in unrepentant Climate Change Republican John McCain’s Senate floor statement yesterday on cap-and-trade. Note well (hat tip: Edward John Craig/Planet Gore): Let me say to my colleagues, I am proud of my record on climate change. I have been all over the world, and […]

The global warming scandal of the century deepens

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 15, 2010 09:17 AM

I called ClimateGate “the global warming scandal of the century” back on November 20. Deeper and deeper it goes. Over the weekend, University of East Anglia global warming cultist Phil Jones conceded that there has been no statistically significant warming over the last 15 years: The academic at the centre of the ‘Climategate’ affair, whose […]

Climate Change Republican Lindsey Graham’s cap-and-tax retreat

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 27, 2010 03:09 PM

The Massachusetts Miracle wasn’t just a wake-up call for Democrats. It was a wake-up call for Big Government Republicans, Business-As-Usual Republicans, McCain Republicans, and Climate Change Republicans. Lindsey Graham is all four, of course. In October, he penned an enviro-nitwit op-ed with John Kerry signing on to the Democrats’ massive cap-and-tax plan. He’s singing a […]

ClimateGate update: All about the Mann

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 15, 2010 02:27 PM

Three items for you about Michael Mann, ClimateGate bully/eco-con artist… 1) First, watch the news report from Pennsylvania — where Mann is under investigation by Penn State: Background from the Commonwealth Foundation. They’ve called for an independent investigation and expose Penn State’s conflicts of interests in the matter. 2) The Foundry flags Mann’s $514,000 stimulus […]

Soros scheming at Copenhagen: Eco-redistribution of wealth

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 10, 2009 05:27 PM

Hmmmm. Left-wing radical billionaire George Soros has injected himself into the Copenhagen climate change talks. He is riding to the “rescue” of negotiators at loggerheads over the pricetag of global regulatory intervention to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Look: The $10 billion a year proposed by rich nations to help the poor adapt to climate change […]

Hey, Al Gore: You lie!

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 9, 2009 01:52 PM

Al Gore is on his ClimateGate whitewash mission — and, as usual, ManBearPig isn’t going to let inconvenient facts get in the way of his eco-crusade. He talked with Slate magazine’s John Dickerson and repeatedly pooh-poohed the scandalous ClimateGate e-mails as “more than 10 years old,” “over 10-year-old e-mails,” and “an e-mail exchange more than […]

Hey, EPA chief Lisa Jackson: You lie!

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 9, 2009 12:28 PM

Add another global warming lie to the stinking green heap: EPA chief Lisa Jackson has denied that the greenhouse gas endangerment finding had anything to do at all with the Copenhagan climate change conference. Nope, don’t question the timing of the EPA’s war on carbon. Pure coincidence. Except… Jackson herself said the exact opposite in […]

The EPA’s war on carbon

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 7, 2009 11:28 AM

Eco-czars of the Obama administration, activate! Form of…a corrupted “scientific” finding on greenhouse gas “public endangerment.” Timed for maximum impact on the Copenhagen global warming treaty talks, the Obama EPA is set to announce that greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare, paving the way for the green bureaucrats to radically regulate emissions. Keeping an […]

56 Chicken Little newspapers on climate change

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 7, 2009 09:29 AM

Make sure you keep this list of 56 newspapers handy when looking for thorough, fair coverage of the ClimateChange scandal. These are 56 newspapers that you cannot trust on the issue: Today, the eco-herd of papers published a collective editorial whipping up hysteria over the issue in the face of massive data manipulation, suppression, and […]

The power of ClimateGate: Al Gore forced to sacrifice Copenhagen cash cow

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 3, 2009 05:53 PM

The chill wind of ClimateGate has blown over Al Gore’s $1,200-per handshake lecture at Copenhagen. He has canceled the hot-air hoedown. ClimateDepot dubbed the crumbling global warming conference next week “Nopenhagen.” Blow, winds of change, blow: Former Vice President Al Gore on Thursday abruptly canceled a Dec. 16 personal appearance that was to be staged […]

Save the planet: Erase Copenhagen’s carbon footprint!

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 3, 2009 02:00 PM

Another gargantuan reason, in the wake of ClimateGate, to call the whole damned thing off: When an estimated 16,500 delegates, activists and reporters descend upon Copenhagen Monday for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, a lot of hot air will follow. The U.N. estimates the 12-day conference will create 40,584 tons of carbon dioxide equivalents, […]

Graph via Steve McIntyre My syndicated column today looks at the global warming cultists in the Obama administration who are working overtime to paper over the ClimateGate scandal. Yesterday, Phil Jones, the head of the U.K.’s Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia stepped aside while the university investigates. Penn State prof Michael […]
