NYT fails in its attempt to ‘spin’ Trump’s Climate comments.

The ‘fake news’ that Trump had somehow moderated or changed his “global warming” views was not supported by the full transcript of the meeting.
Heartland Institute President Joe Bast had this to say about the full transcript of Trump’s meeting: “This is reassuring. The Left wants to drive wedges between Trump and his base by spinning anything he says as “retreating from campaign promises.” But expressing nuance and avoiding confrontation with determined foes who buy ink by the barrel is not retreating.” The Heartland Institute released their skeptical 2015 climate report featuring 4,000 peer-reviewed articles debunking the UN IPCC claims.

Implications for Central America of a Trump presidency and deportations?

‘The campaign promises made by U.S. President-elect Donald Trump to step up deportations of immigrants who have entered the United States without permission have unnerved some Central American governments. On Nov. 16, El Salvador’s foreign minister, Hugo Martinez, said that the countries of Central America’s Northern Triangle (Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras) plan to cooperate with Mexico to fashion a coordinated regional response to any increased pace of deportations.

If the Trump administration fulfills the rhetoric, each of those countries could expect a significant number of returnees. Of Honduras’ 8 million citizens, more than 1 million currently reside in the United States. About 2 million of Guatamala’s 16 million nationals live in the United States. And almost half of El Salvador’s just more than 6 million people reside in the United States.

Globalist conspiracy becoming reality

9deexvkajyht9tej

Speaking at the State Department at the “2016 Our Ocean Conference,” President Barack Obama said that a “healthier planet” is vital to U.S. “national security” and that he has conversations about climate change “in the Situation Room.”

Obama also said that “dangerous changes in our climate, caused mainly by human activity…are happening now.”

Dangerous changes in our climate, caused mainly by human activity…..”

In May 2014, President Obama, tweeted that “Ninety-seven percent of scientists agree: climate change is real, man-made and dangerous.

John Kerry tried pulling the same stunt:

And let there be no doubt in anybody’s mind that the science is absolutely certain. . . 97 percent of climate scientists have confirmed that climate change is happening and that human activity is responsible. . . .”

Comment:

Really??….Obama and Kerry are still pushing that globalist/climate narrative?

THE HOW OF FISCAL ARMAGEDDON: Part II. The China factor

Much of the preceding article THE HOW OF FISCAL ARMAGEDDON:Part I was concerned with the mechanisms of fiscal collapse in the West. Implicit was what the trigger for this might be. A major political or fiscal crisis in the EU or a sudden collapse of the Chinese financial systems, may be two of the more likely triggers. In this article we will explore the current ‘house of cards’ that is the Chinese Financial system.

China is a statistical ‘out-lyer’ when it comes to industrialisation. The sheer size and pace of what has happened in just the past 20 years dwarfs all preceding industrialisation models. China initial near term industrialisation is a hundred times as large as any new industrialisation model we have seen previously, and it has happened in a hundredth the time. Buried in the rise and rise of this remarkable industrial behemoth however are deep systemic flaws, that have the potential of bringing down the whole Chinese enterprise, and along with it the world economy. It is not a case of if the Chinese economic ‘bubble economy’  will burst, it is matter of when that will happen. But first let us explore what is really going on inside the Chinese economy.

Attempting to shut down scientific debate runs foul of the scientific method. Hypocrisy Rules.

One of the worst consequences of politicising the global warming contention is the corrupting effect it has had on science – to the point where even senior professors and heads of department no longer appear to understand what science actually is, let alone what the Scientific Method says.
Take this week’s climate prat of the week, Professor Jonathan Butterworth of the Physics and Astronomy Department at University College London.
Butterworth has just been caught red-handed trying to prevent one of his colleagues holding a conference for climate sceptics because, in his opinion, their views are “rather fringe.”

thumb_64447_article_normalNASA
Here is the snooty email he sent to his colleague Dr Athem Alsabti, former Professor of Physics at Baghdad University, now working at UCL’s Observatory:

“It has been brought to my attention that you have booked a room at University College, London, for an external conference in September for a rather fringe group discussing aspects of climate science.

“If this event were to go ahead at UCL, it would generate a great deal of strong feeling, indeed it already has, as members of the UCL community are expressing concern to me that we are giving a platform to speakers who deny anthropogenic climate change while flying in the face of accepted scientific methods. I am sure you have no desire to bring UCL into disrepute, or to cause dissension in the UCL community, and I would encourage you to think about moving the event to a different venue, not on UCL premises.”


The conference – which is still going ahead, though not now in the university itself but at a nearby venue, Conway Hall – will feature a number of scientists every bit as distinguished in their field as Butterworth presumably is in his.


According to
Lord Monckton <https://wattsupwiththat.com/2016/08/01/a-threat-from-university-college-london-over-a-climate-skeptic-conference/> , who is organising it, they include:
