Tens of Thousands Of Scientists Declare Climate Change A Hoax

Tens of Thousands Of Scientists Declare Climate Change A Hoax

30,000 scientists declare man-made climate change a hoax

A staggering 30,000 scientists have come forward confirming that man-made climate change is a hoax perpetuated by the elite in order to make money. 

One of the experts is weather channel founder, John Coleman, who warns that huge fortunes are being made by man-made climate change proponents such as Al Gore.

Natural News reports:

In a recent interview with Climate Depot, Coleman said:

“Al Gore may emerge from the shadows to declare victory in the ‘global warming’ debate if Hillary Clinton moves into the White House. Yes, if that happens and the new climate regulations become the law of the land, they will be next to impossible to overturn for four to eight years.”

Climate change proponents remain undeterred in their mission, ignoring numerous recent scientific findings indicating that there has been no warming trend at all for nearly two decades.

Al Gore’s dire predictions of the melting of polar ice on a massive scale have proved to be completely false. In fact, in 2014 – a year that was touted as being “the hottest ever” in the Earth’s history – there were record amounts of ice reported in Antarctica, an increase in Arctic ice, and record snowfalls across the globe.

Debunking the “97 percent” lie

On top of those “inconvenient truths,” the White House’s assertion that 97 percent of scientists agree that global warming is real has been completely debunked. Several independently-researched examinations of the literature used to support the “97 percent” statement found that the conclusions were cherry-picked and misleading.

More objective surveys have revealed that there is a far greater diversity of opinion among scientists than the global warming crowd would like for you to believe.

From the National Review:

“A 2008 survey by two German scientists, Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch, found that a significant number of scientists were skeptical of the ability of existing global climate models to accurately predict global temperatures, precipitation, sea-level changes, or extreme weather events even over a decade; they were far more skeptical as the time horizon increased.”

Other mainstream news sources besides the National Review have also been courageous enough to speak out against the global warming propaganda – even the Wall Street Journal published an op-ed piece in 2015 challenging the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) pseudoscience being promulgated by global warming proponents.

And, of course, there are the more than 31,000 American scientists (to date) who have signed a petition challenging the climate change narrative and 9,029 of them hold PhDs in their respective fields. But hey, Al Gore and his cronies have also ignored that inconvenient truth, as well.

Many of those scientists who signed the petition were likely encouraged to speak out in favor of the truth after retired senior NASA atmospheric scientist John L. Casey revealed that solar cycles are largely responsible for warming periods on Earth – not human activity.

Al Gore and cronies continue getting richer from the global warming hoax

But the global warming crowd continues to push their agenda on the public while lining their pockets in the process. If you’re still inclined to believe what Al Gore has to say about global warming, please consider the fact that since he embarked on his crusade, his wealth has grown from $2 million in 2001 to $100 million in 2016 – largely due to investments in fake “green tech” companies and the effective embezzlement of numerous grants and loans.

County board member urges Governors State to bar illegal immigrants

A Will County board member this week called for Governors State University and other publicly funded universities in Illinois to stop serving illegal immigrants.

Board member Steve Balich (R-Homer Glen), who founded the 11,000-member Will County Tea Party Alliance, called on publicly funded universities such as Governors State to follow federal law and serve the interests of taxpayers by no longer providing higher education to illegal immigrants.

“They still don’t belong here,” Balich told the Will County Gazette. “They’re taking a spot from an American citizen at that school.”

Governors State reports that during the fall term, 16 university students identified themselves on applications as illegal immigrants, although no illegal immigrants have apparently applied for admission for the Fall 2017 session. Other state universities, however, report higher numbers of illegal immigrants in their student populations.

“I’m hoping that when (President-elect Donald) Trump gets in, he will enforce the law,” Balich said.

He went on to add that it’s costing the debt-ridden state a huge amount of money to educate illegal immigrants at its public universities.

Governors State, however, expressly states on its website that people who are not legally residing in Illinois can still apply to the university and pay the in-state tuition rate. The university’s policy cites a state law that allows illegal immigrants to be considered Illinois residents for the purpose of paying tuition.

Such students, however, do have to meet certain criteria. The requirements include having attended a high school in the state while residing with parents, as well as receiving a high school diploma or equivalent certification in Illinois. Affected students must also provide an affidavit promising they will file documents to eventually become permanent U.S. residents.

Balich said the issue of sanctuary cities, such as Chicago, that protect illegal immigrants from being prosecuted for violating federal immigration laws is another major problem that leads to negative effects on state taxpayers. If a city wants to be a sanctuary, federal money going to its schools and other infrastructure projects should be withheld, while the mayor should be held in contempt of court and prosecuted, he said.

If the mayors of smaller cities violate any of an array of laws, they would be prosecuted, Balich said. As such, he wonders why the Chicago mayor is seemingly above the law.

“Put them in jail and lock them up,” Balich said.

The Will County board member argues that no additional state laws are needed to prevent illegal immigrants from attending publicly funded universities. All that’s necessary is to enforce existing immigration laws, said Balich, who doesn’t want new immigrants attending public colleges unless they have either education or work visas.

While working at the local level in Homer Glen, Balich spearheaded the passage of a bill that called for enforcement of all existing immigration laws and to make English the official language so that ballots would need not be printed in multiple languages. Such a common-sense approach could benefit taxpayers across the state, he said.

“There’s no way an illegal alien should be allowed to get any benefits whatsoever and use any of our infrastructure for free,” Balich said.

Transgender Reaassignment Surgery Under Obamacare Blocked Nationwide

Transgender Reaassignment Surgery Under Obamacare Blocked Nationwide

The Texas Attorney General won a nationwide preliminary injunction to block a new Obamacare mandate requiring taxpayers to fund transgender reassignment surgeries and abortions. The new rule which defines “sex” as a state of mind was scheduled to take effect January 1, 2017.

On Saturday, a federal district court judge granted Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s request to stop the Obama administration’s new federal health rules that would force the Employees Retirement System of Texas to amend its insurance coverage to provide for gender reassignment and abortion. There are 500,000 employees that participate in the coverage.

In July, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services implemented a new rule that defined the term “sex” in the Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”) to include a state of mind, not a biological fact.

A statement released by the Texas Attorney General on Sunday says that “The Obama administration is attempting to redefine the law so that the term ‘sex’ means one’s ‘internal sense of gender which may be male, female, neither, or a combination of male and female,’ even though the president lacks the authority to rewrite the law.” When Congress enacted the law for Obamacare, it used the term “sex” as a biological category.

Paxton says that the impact of the new rule on state and health care workers is huge because it forces doctors and medical workers to provide sex transition services and it may be against their medical judgment or religious beliefs to do so. The AG says that if a health care doctor or worker chooses to refer a patient to another medical provider, they would be in violation of the new rule unilaterally implemented by the Obama Administration. Paxton says “This runs roughshod over laws in Texas and other states that protect the independent medical judgment of doctors, which ensures the integrity of the doctor-patient relationship.”

“This striking example of federal overreach under Obamacare would force many doctors, hospitals and other health care providers in Texas to participate in sex-reassignment surgeries and treatments, even if it violates their best medical judgment or their religious beliefs,” Attorney General Paxton said. “I will always fight to protect the constitutional rights of Texans.”

The move to define sex in this manner is consistent with the Obama Administration’s “gender fluidity” mandate, as reported by Breitbart Texas, that school and school districts must allow students to use bathroom and shower facilities consistent with the gender that they identify with on a particular day. If school officials do not comply with the federal government’s directive, they risk losing federal funding. Texas leads a 13-state coalition against the Obama Administration’s transgender public school restrooms directive. As reported by Breitbart Texas in mid-October, the federal judge ruled that a preliminary injunction against the Obama transgender school bathroom mandate applies nationwide.

Obama’s last ditch effort to derail Trump deregulation

Man inspecting auto parts on assembly linePresident-elect Donald Trump has vowed to walk back Obama administration environmental regulations to make U.S. industry more competitive—but President Obama is forging ahead to finalize a spate of last minute EPA rules.

One of the main areas in which Trump is expected to improve the regulatory environment is the automotive industry. U.S. automakers are counting on his incoming administration to block Obama’s burdensome fuel mileage requirements for new vehicles.

But the outgoing administration is doing everything it can to make sure its regulatory roadblocks endure.

In an interview with The Detroit News, Eno Center for Transportation senior fellow Jeff Davis said the Obama administration appears to be working to “flood the zone” with new regulations, a move that could make Trump’s deregulation efforts take years.

“Getting rid of these rules isn’t something Trump can do with the stroke of a pen on Jan. 20,” Davis said. “A lot of these rules can be with us for a long time, even if the administration is actively opposed to them from Day One.”

The auto alliance which represents Fiat Chrysler, Ford, GM, BMW Group, Jaguar Land Rover, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz USA, Mitsubishi Motors, Porsche, Toyota, Volkswagen Group of America and Volvo Car USA charged that the Obama moves are purely political and bound to hurt U.S. consumers.

Here’s how The Detroit News breaks down the regulations:

The increase, which some automakers have said might be too ambitious, starts with a rise to an average of over 35 miles per gallon for the 2017 models that already are being rolled out. The mileage rules call for automakers to achieve a fleetwide average mileage rate of more than 36 miles per gallon for cars and trucks in 2018.

The standard then increases to more than 37 miles per gallon in 2019 and nearly 39 miles per gallon in 2020, which is before automakers will have a chance to weigh in on the need for any course corrections. By 2021, automakers will be required to hit a combined average of 41 miles per gallon for their cars and trucks.

If the rules for model years after 2021 are left in place, the emission standard will increase to about 43 miles per gallon combined for cars and trucks in 2022, before jumping to about 45 miles per gallon in 2023. The final years of the mandate will see a required average of about 47 miles per gallon in 2024, and finally more than 55 miles per gallon for cars and about 40 miles per gallon for trucks in 2025.

Auto companies that do not meet the higher emission standards will be fined $5.50 for each 10th of a mile-per-gallon their average fuel economy falls short of the standard for a model year, multiplied by the total volume of vehicles that are in the fleet that fails to meet the new requirements.

John Bozzella, president and CEO of the Association of Global Automakers, said in a statement last week: “The EPA decision to deny stakeholders an opportunity to provide thorough and thoughtful comments on a regulatory program that could affect billions in investment is sadly predictable.

“EPA’s hurried determination, and lack of transparency, only increases suspicions surrounding the agency’s decision, undermining confidence in its objectivity and impartiality,” he added.

With just under a month to go before Trump’s inauguration, the Obama administration has enacted around $5 billion in midnight regulations that will add 350,000 new paperwork hours for U.S. businesses in the automotive and energy sectors.
