**Bumped Up From TAM Wire. Posted by Alain** The Magic School Bus Rides Again series at Netflix has ‘climate change’ episodes that inform kids if they don’t use clean energy, a monster will eat them. Educational for sure. Bet if Conservatives did a show that informed children that Obamacare was designed to kill their parents by making health care too expensive, Hollywood would go up in arms. Via NewsBusters. The Magic School Bus is back in the new Netflix series The Magic School Bus Rides Again! Overall, it’s still a nice, fun 13-episode series like we remember from when we were kids, but with some left turns. There is a pretty predictable take on climate change propaganda for little kids,...

Let’s see if I can unpack this lunacy for you: President Trump got us out of the disastrous rip-off known as the Paris Climate deal. Now we are experiencing hurricanes because of “Climate Change.” Because there were no hurricanes…until President Trump was elected. Or something. Via NewsBusters. In an interview with Channel 4, a British public service television network, American actress Jennifer Lawrence blamed the recent hurricanes on Donald Trump’s voters, because they don’t believe in man-made climate change. During the lengthy interview on her new movie Mother!, the conversation turned political about halfway through. After discussing the alleged pay gap between men and women, the interviewer asked Lawrence about climate change and the political climate in America…. “It’s scary,”...

If “climate change” is “settled science,” why the need to fudge the data? Via Investor’s Business Daily. ….Penn State meteorology professor Michael Mann has gained dubious renown for something no scientist desires: fiddling with data, and getting caught. In this case, it was temperature data. Mann’s famous “hockey stick” rendition of temperature and climate changes makes it appear as if temperatures began rising sharply in the 19th century as carbon dioxide from the Industrial Revolution began to build up, and then soared uncontrollably in recent years to near-record highs for the last millennium…. The only problem is, according to critics, Mann’s data were manipulated in such a way as to make them incorrect. Ironically, Mann published his hockey-stick paper in...

Not sure what Chris Cuomo has in mind, but does he think if we all had given up our cars and rode on bicycles, Hurricane Harvey would not have occurred? Via Daily Caller. Kellyanne Conway took CNN’s Chris Cuomo to task for trying to shift the Hurricane Harvey conversation to climate change during a Wednesday night interview. “One of the themes that’s coming out of this…is opening up a discussion about climate change,” Cuomo said. “Is the president, is the administration, open to that conversation?” Conway brought a high level of sassiness to the conversation, telling Cuomo, “Chris, we’re literally trying to help the people whose lives are under water and you want to have a conversation about climate change.”...

This is what’s known as a stupid moonbat idiocy, er, logical fallacy. HT Weasel Zippers. Science successfully predicts eclipses. In the same way, "climate science has established its validity." https://t.co/r9tIeSMohw — NYT Climate (@nytclimate) August 19, 2017 Someone actually thought this correlation was a good idea, went a step further, and shared the stupidity with the world. — Penny for your thots (@penny_lesner) August 20, 2017 Even my 10-year-old knows this is BS, Climate has 0 constants, but infinite variablesEclipses have approx. 2 constants and few variables — Scruffy McNerfherder (@DocKilmer) August 21, 2017 If that's the case why are the climate change predictions always wrong?

Five hundred people have already pledged to plant 140,000 trees. Only 999,000,000,860,000 trees to go! Or something. Via Daily Caller. Three climate scientists have started an initiative to plant more than 100 billion new trees to mitigate the environmental impact of President Donald Trump pulling the U.S. out of the Paris agreement on climate change, the BBC reports. Current pledges to plant trees number about 140,000 from a little over 500 people, 0.0000014 percent of the #TrumpForest project’s ambitious goal, according to project’s website…. “We’ve met some of the people on the front lines of climate change in Bangladesh, Mongolia and in other countries, and we found it extremely upsetting that Mr. Trump’s ignorance is so profound,” Taylor told the...

Just in case we didn’t feel guilty about the fake news linking climate change to polar bear deaths, now, according to this WaPo column, Indian farmers are killing themselves, because of climate change. And since President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the Paris Climate “deal,” the suicide rate is probably his fault. Or something. Via Twitchy. The Washington Post’s coverage of a study linking climate change and suicide managed to hold off for three paragraphs before bringing up President Trump’s withdrawal from the Paris climate accord, making the study’s findings “particularly worrisome” — if you buy into them, that is…. 59,000 farmer suicides in India over 30 years may be linked to climate change, study says https://t.co/mS9AwFB2jO — Washington...

Someone please immediately call ManBearPig, er, Al Gore. Via Daily Caller. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seems to have broken her promise to run a carbon neutral campaign by purchasing credits to offset all the carbon dioxide emitted from her private jet travel. The Clinton campaign promised nearly two years ago to go carbon neutral after the former top diplomat was caught flying a private jet the same day she gave a speech on the dangers of man-made global warming. That promise remains unkept, a Daily Caller News Foundation review of federal election filings found. Clinton aides said “offsetting our carbon footprint is still an important goal for this campaign,” but media reports from late 2015 and early 2016...

Really, you just can’t make this stuff up. But here’s a suggestion for Mayor de Blasio: How about going to a gym in Manhattan, instead of schlepping down to Park Slope, which is in Brooklyn? You’re welcome 🙂 Via NY Post. Despite regularly riding in a two-vehicle caravan from Gracie Mansion to Park Slope just to exercise at the local YMCA, Mayor de Blasio insisted on Monday that he does his part to protect the environment in other ways. “We all have to do what we can do, and I’m very focused on recycling in my life and composting. I try not to take plastic bags when I go to the store. There’s all sorts of things I do in...

Well, the “one hundred months” is now upon us. And in warning about an unimaginable horrific catastrophe that would befall us, maybe Prince Charles was on to something. I mean, Hillary’s constant whining, Pelosi’s ramblings, Kathy Griffin and her new-found “victimhood,” Anderson Cooper’s eye rolls: Yes, who could have possibly imagined these horrors one hundred months ago? Via Weekly Standard. The Prince of Wales did not mince words in warning about the ravages of global warming. No piddling nonsense about a few inches of sea-rise; nothing so trivial as coastal erosion; no focus on the plight of the polar bear. No, the prince had a louder alarm he was sounding, one about the Future of Mankind: The “threat of catastrophic...

Pic HT @MDempseyCO Do Climate Change/Global Warming Hysterics, er, environmentalists, know the word i-r-o-n-y? Via Breitbart. A rally in Colorado Springs designed to warn people of the effects of climate change and global warming was postponed this weekend after a snowstorm made it too risky to proceed. The event, organized by local environmentalist group 350 Colorado Springs, was also a protest against the Trump administration’s policies on climate change. However, the march was postponed until Sunday after weather forecasters predicted heavy snowfall and possible blizzards. “Sometimes Mother Nature throws you a curveball! We know we aren’t in the business of risking anyone’s safety. Dangerous conditions and wet heavy snow in the forecast for tomorrow,” the group wrote on their Facebook...

It mattered little to the climate-change hysterics that Stephens actually agreed with them that climate change is real and man-made. But he dared to question some of the research, and got trashed with profanity-laced tweets from Leftist journalists. You can view tweets here, via Twitchy, if you are so inclined. Because nothing says “intelligent argument” like a bunch of “f-bombs.” Via NewsBusters. On Friday (appearing in Saturday’s print edition), the New York Times published its first column by Bret Stephens, the former Wall Street Journal columnist recently hired as a “conservative” voice. Its theme was that the political “hyperbole” about climate change doesn’t match the underlying science — even if one trusts the underlying science. That alone was enough to...

The writer of the column at The Nation is a professor at the University of Michigan. Not. Kidding. Via Washington Examiner. ….The Nation published an article Tuesday that used the recent gas attacks in Syria, which claimed the lives of approximately 70 people, including children, as an excuse to attack President Donald Trump over the issue of climate change. The article, titled “The Other Poison Gas Killing Syrians: Carbon Dioxide Emissions,” was written by University of Michigan professor Juan Cole…. “If Trump and his cronies really cared about children killed by noxious gases, they wouldn’t be trying to spew ever more CO2 into the atmosphere,” the story begins. It just gets worse from there. “The pictures of suffering children, Trump...
