VIDEO: Grilling Down on the Left’s “Beef” with Cattle Ranchers

America’s farmers and ranchers are under attack.

While they tirelessly work to provide food for millions, the Green Left has demonized them as so-called “Destroyers of the Earth.” The EPA, DOI, and UN repeatedly identify meat producers as devourers of wildlife habitat in an attempt to punish them through regulation. And Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has even raised alarm over excessive cattle farts she believes are contributing to a climate apocalypse.

Yet the narrative that the Left is trying to spin is not the real story. In actuality, cattle ranchers and farmers play an important role in both protecting the environment and feeding the world.

CFACT’s Gabriella Hoffman showcases this real story behind cattle ranching and farming in her latest episode of the Conservation Nation series, titled “Cows Keep Florida Green.”

You can watch it in full, here.

Hoffman interviews ranchers from the Sunshine State who explain that cows actually help diverse number of species thrive, by creating paths through dense foliage that critters would otherwise stay away from.

Additionally, the ranchers have an economic incentive to protect the lands and waters that are helping to serve their livelihoods. If the ranchers were not there managing the land, the State would be forced to come in and manage the property at much higher expense and with far less benefit to both the environment and humanity.

It’s time we start celebrating our farmers and ranchers for both feeding the world and helping our environment.

So, the next time you chow down on a juicy steak or burger, remember, there’s a rancher out there working hard who deserves our thanks, not our condemnation!

Green is the new Red

The intent of the Green New Deal is not to “save the planet,” but rather to use climate alarmism as an excuse to destroy America’s capitalist economy.


Twelve years ago, a climate research cheating scandal known as “Climategate 2009” rocked the scientific world to the core. Hacked emails among highly influential scientists at the center of worldwide hysteria over climate change revealed routine data tampering and other instances of flagrant scientific misconduct. Although the scientists implicated denied wrong-doing, emails hacked from computers at their employer, the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, revealed a consistent pattern of climate data manipulation, conspiracies to falsify data and withhold findings that cast serious doubt on the man-made global warming theory, to exaggerate the existence and threats posed by global warming, and to obstruct contrary research from appearing in scholarly publications. Aided and abetted by a complicit western media establishment, the climate crisis industry dismissed the scandal as much ado about nothing, and continued beating the drums of climate hysteria as if nothing had happened.


Climategate scandal tore off the fraudulent façade of man-made global warming theory

The Climategate scandal tore off the fraudulent façade of man-made global warming theory

The Climategate cheating scandal exposed the man-made global warming theory for what it is: the most brazen scientific hoax in human history, an international collusion to destroy capitalism in the worlds largest capitalist nation to pave the way for that nations sovereignty being handed over to a global governing authority run by the United Nations.

That is a serious charge on my part, so please allow me to justify it by citing the words of two high profile UN climate officials in the thick of the effort to strip away Americas sovereignty.

Christiana Figueres served as Executive Secretary of the UNs Framework Convention on Climate Change. In a frank admission that laid bare the stealth agenda behind climate alarmism, Figueres said during a February 2015 press conference in Brussels that the UN’s real purpose in promoting climate fear is to kill off capitalism throughout the world:

This is the first time in human history that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally changing [getting rid of] the economic development model that has reigned since the Industrial Revolution.

The economic model to which she referred is free-market capitalism. A year earlier, Figueres revealed what U.S. capitalism must be replaced with when she bitterly complained that Americas two-party constitutional democracy is hampering the UN’s climate objectives. She went on to cite Chinas communist system as the kind of government America must have if the UN is to do as it pleases.

Figueres is not alone in embracing communism. Another high-level UN official had comments of his own about the stealth agenda behind climate alarmism. If you’re among those who believe climate alarmists when they tell you all they’re trying to do is save the planet, what Dr. Ottmar Edenhofer had to say will leave you feeling betrayed.

In a Nov. 14, 2010 interview with Swiss newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Edenhofer, co-chair of the UN IPCCs Working Group III, made this stunning admission:

One must free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. [What were doing] has almost nothing to do with the climate. We must state clearly that we use climate policy to [re]distribute de facto the worlds wealth.  

On the same date, Edenhofer added this

Climate policy has almost nothing to do anymore with protecting the environment. The next world climate summit in Cancun is actually an economy summit during which [re]distribution of the world’s resources will be negotiated.

Dr. Ottmar Edenhofer, one of the UN’s top climate officials, effectively admitted that the organizations public position on climate change is a hoax. The same admission was made in July 2019 by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortezs chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, who told Gov. Jay Inslee (D-WA) that the Green New Deal is not about saving the planet:

It wasn’t originally a climate thing at all … we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.

Environmental crisis will be the international disaster key to unlock the New World Order

Translation: The intent of the Green New Deal is not to “save the planet,” but rather to use climate alarmism as an excuse to destroy America’s capitalist economy.

Figueres, Edenhofer and Chakrabarti aren’t the only hardened communists to recognize the effectiveness of using environmental hysteria as a fig leaf to hide their true intent. In 1996, former Soviet Union President Mikhail Gorbachev advocated using climate fear to create a global demand for communism:

The threat of environmental crisis will be the international disaster key to unlock the New World Order.

The “new world order” to which he referred is global governance under the banner of the hammer and sickle, the same objective of the pro-communist World Economic Forum, which announced last year its “Great Reset” initiative to help inform decisions regarding global recovery amid the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the organizations website, the Great Reset will address challenges like global warming by resetting “the direction of national economies.” Translation: Use climate policy as a slight-of-hand means to force western nations, including America, to give up capitalism in favor of communism.

Last September at a panel discussion hosted by the World Economic Forum and the United Nations, John Kerry, who would later be appointed as President Bidens climate czar, said this about Bidens intent to impose the Great Reset on America:

Yes, the Great Reset will happen, and I think it will happen with greater speed and greater intensity than a lot of people imagine.

They’re coming for your liberty

The Great Reset is a desperate push to culminate the progressive dream of global governance. For global governance to occur, Americas sovereignty must be ceded to the UN, an organization infested from top to bottom with Marxists hell-bent on dismantling western democracies, including the crown jewel of them all, the United States of America.

They’re coming for your liberty

The stunning pronouncements by Figueres and Edenhofer are all the evidence a rational mind needs to conclude that climate alarmism is being used as a Trojan horse to justify the stratospheric new carbon taxes clamored for by climate charlatans like Al Gore, Barack Obama, John Kerry and Bill Gates, none of whom have denounced the profoundly anti-American sentiments of two of the UNs top climate officials.

The words of one of those officials revealed that such taxes would be used not for environmental healing, but to fund the most massive redistribution of wealth in history, literally trillions of dollars extracted under false pretenses from hard-working U.S. taxpayers, and given to corrupt governments of every undeveloped nation on Earth, all in the guise of “climate aid.”

Powerful progressives in this country feel its not fair that billions of people in the world sleep on the ground in mud huts, while Americans sleep on soft mattresses in air-conditioned comfort.  The progressive elites who feel that way also believe that Americas wealth must therefore be “shared” to an unprecedented extent with the worlds poor nations.

No rational person can fail to see that the Democratic Party is using climate alarmism as a ruse to fundamentally transform the United States of America

Progressives in high places are attempting the largest heist in human history, a collusion to plunder unprecedented sums from taxpayers of the worlds largest capitalist nation. Why? To implement on a global scale the mandate set forth in The Communist Manifesto: “From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs.”

The progressive elites who push climate fear would have you believe they’re nothing more than environmentally-concerned Americans who would never even dream of participating in a subversive attempt to turn their country communist. These Marxist wolves in sheep’s clothing have been lying to you, and now you know it. Their intent is use massive new global warming taxes to control every aspect of your life: where you’re allowed to live, the size of house you’re allowed to have, the thermostat settings in your home, the kind of car you’re allowed to have, the amount of miles you’re allowed to drive, your ability to travel by air, the kind of food you’re allowed to eat. In short, they’re coming for your liberty.

No rational person can fail to see that the Democratic Party is using climate alarmism as a ruse to fundamentally transform the United States of America.  But because the human ego is loathe to admit it’s been duped, many patriotic Democrats will continue allowing themselves to be led like sheep into the closing noose of the hammer and sickle.  By the time they realize what happened, it will be too late.

Climate Models Hotter Than Reality

Global warming policy is based on climate computer models.

These simulations of the temperature of the Earth are wrong and always have been.

They start out on the left side of the graph looking pretty good.  They have to.  Real-world recorded temperature observations had already been made.

It’s like projecting the results of races that have already been run.

As soon as the models start trying to project the future, however, they diverge wildly from reality, pretty much always running way too hot.

Projecting races that have not yet run is a trickier business.

Dr. Roy Spencer and Dr. John Christy manage temperature satellites for NASA.  They are climate scientists based at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.  They regularly publish temperature data as their instruments record it and offer expert commentary on climate science and the computer simulations it is based on.  Their work is invaluable.  On Earth Day Dr. Spencer posted the comparison of observed temperature to simulated temperature above.

All of the temperature datasets show that the Earth is warmer today when compared to various baselines.  No one “denies” this.  “Climate denial” is a straw man argument.  Those same datasets also show that climate computer simulations project a far warmer Earth than real-world observations show.

This indicates that the computer models may factor in a greater climate sensitivity to CO2 and other greenhouse gases than observations justify.

This is a massive problem.  Global warming campaigners take the most extreme models, the ones that are nowhere close to reality, and use them to generate frightening scenarios that are used in turn to argue for extreme “solutions.”  That these so-called “solutions” solve nothing meaningful, and are unable to pass cost-benefit analysis when factored into those same climate models, is an inconvenient truth Team Warming does not want discussed.

In science, theories and projections must follow the data.  Scientists must never alter the data to suit a desired outcome.  However, “adjusting” the data to fit the models is now a regular occurrence.  Somehow, these technical corrections are always weighted toward warming.  Inconveniently, the “adjustments” are still never enough to make these models match reality.

The inability of “climate communicators” to showcase temperature predictions that actually come true, leaves them constantly exaggerating natural weather events and fighting to silence critics to compensate.

The Biden Administration is pushing to remake the American energy economy, expend vast sums of public money, and place unprecedented restrictions on American freedom, based on climate computer models that run too hot.

Those with a vested interest in global warming are doing all they can to ensure that American voters never learn the facts.

Biden’s Climate Hoax Agenda: Americans ‘That Relied On Old Industries Will Be Hit Hard’

The Democrats hate America and they mean to destroy and dismantle it. Don’t kid yourself, they are well into their war on us. Biden is not legitimate.

‘Ecology’ and climate crap is the greatest political hoax in history.

SecState Blinken On Biden’s Climate Agenda: Americans ‘That Relied On Old Industries Will Be Hit Hard’

Promises administration will provide “sustainable livelihoods”

By: Daily Wire News • Apr 20, 2021: •

Secretary of State Antony Blinken said during a speech on Monday at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation in Maryland that Americans who rely “on old industries will be hit hard” by the Biden administration’s economic and climate policies but promised the administration will provide “sustainable livelihoods.”

Blinken painted a grim outlook of the future stemming from the effects of climate change, claiming that “to my children’s children, the landscape will be unrecognizable.”

“If America fails to lead the world on addressing the climate crisis, we won’t have much of a world left,” Blinken claimed. “If we succeed, we will capitalize on the greatest opportunity to create quality jobs in generations; we’ll build a more equitable, healthy, and sustainable society; and we’ll protect this magnificent planet. That’s the test we face right now.”

“Even if the United States gets to net zero emissions tomorrow, we’ll lose the fight against climate change if we can’t address the more than 85 percent of emissions coming from the rest of the world,” Blinken later added. “Coming up short will have major repercussions for our national security.”

After speaking about some of the specific goals of the Biden administration on creating green energy jobs, Blinken said that it was “important” to be “mindful that for all the opportunities offered by the unavoidable shift to clean energy, not every American worker will win out in the near term.”

Fukushima Plus Ten

On March 14, 2011, a tidal wave swept through the Japanese fishing community of Fukushima, destroying homes, businesses, the fishing fleet, and drowning 15,000 people.

The nuclear power plant at Fukushima-Daiichi did what it was supposed to.  It shut itself down, but the mountain of water washed away its ability to cool the reactor.  What happened next will surprise you.

Dr. Kelvin Kemm is a South African nuclear physicist.  He is a brilliant scientist and tireless advocate for African energy.  When Dr. Kemm speaks, attention must be paid.

Dr. Kemm posted a gripping blow-by-blow account of what really happened at Fukushima to CFACT.org.

After taking us from the earthquake, to the tidal wave, to the loss of electricity, cooling and ventilation, Dr. Kemm comes to the moment when a buildup of hydrogen gas exploded and blew the roof off the reactor building.  It wasn’t really that bad, but it was dramatic.  Further tragedy followed, not from radiation, but media-driven panic.

Dr. Kemm continues:

Authorities were desperate to show the world some positive action.

They progressively ordered the evacuation of 160,000 people living around the Fukushima neighbourhood. That was a mistake. As days and weeks passed, it materialized that not one single person was killed by nuclear radiation. Not one single person was even injured by nuclear radiation, either. Even today, a decade later, there is still no sign of any longer-term radiation harm to any person or animal. Sadly, however, people did die during the forced evacuation.

Kemm explains that two thousand frail elderly and hospitalized patients prematurely died when they were forced out of their care during the evacuation.

The world is starving for safe, affordable, abundant, clean energy.  Nuclear power is one of the best ways to generate it.  Unfortunately the danger vests not in nuclear science, but anti-energy ideology.

As Dr. Kemm sums up:

A decade later, we can contemplate the cumulative lessons learned. Above all, they are that nuclear power is far safer than anyone had thought. Even when dreaded core meltdowns occurred, and although reactors were wrecked, resulting in a financial disaster for the owners, no people were harmed by radiation.

We also learned that, for local residents, it would have been far safer to stay indoors in a house than to join the forced evacuation. We also learned that governments and authorities must listen to the nuclear professionals, and not overreact, even though the television news cameras look awfully close.

As happens all too often, the media-driven narrative and reality stand completely at odds.  When this occurs, scientists and engineers can’t help but be frustrated.

In 1979, America experienced the Three Mile Island nuclear accident.  Everyone was safe there as well.  Environmentalist Michael Shellenberger wrote in Forbes, “Time Magazine ran a cover story that superimposed a glowing headline, ‘Nuclear Nightmare,’ over an image of the plant.  Nightmare? More like a dream. What other major industrial technology can suffer a catastrophic failure and not kill anyone?”

Nuclear power is safe and vital.  New technologies are making nuclear better every day.

If only we can save ourselves from the madness of crowds.

When History Disproves Climate Doom

One of the toughest challenges for the global warming crowd occurs when, after the passage of time, the doom they predicted is nowhere to be seen.

Dr. Jay Lehr rounded up ten prominent examples where alarming predictions by warming campaigners failed to come to pass:

  1. In 1987, a former NASA scientist was quoted in nearly all U.S. newspapers that by 2020 the world’s temperature would increase by 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit. The actual increase was less than a single degree Fahrenheit.
  2. In 1978, The Vermont Sun quoted multiple scientists predicting that by 2020 the Earth’s CO2 concentration would double from its then current level of 330 parts per million. It actually increased by only about 27% to 420.
  3. In 2009, it was predicted that China would decrease their CO2 emissions by 40 to 45% and India by 20 to 25%. Instead their emissions have increased in the past 11 years.
  4. In 2008, Al Gore and most of his friends predicted the snow on Mount Kilimanjaro would have disappeared. There has been little change at all in its snow cap.
  5. In 1986, U.S. EPA predicted a two foot sea level rise for Florida in 2020. It has risen about one inch, a rate which has been experienced for 800 years. An additional apparent rise of 3 inches has been the result of land subsidence.
  6. In March of 2000 at Britain”s Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research, scientist David Parker told the English newspaper The Independent that British children will soon experience snow only virtually on the internet. When it does snow 20 years hence (2020) it will cause chaos due to its rarity. England has not been short of normal snow.
  7. In 2000 it was reported by the Tarawa, Kiribati newspaper that a study by Greenpeace indicated that Global Warming will ruin Pacific Island Nations economies by 2020 with Tuvalu considered most critical. Tuvalu’s 2019 budget report stated that Tuvalu had enjoyed an unprecedented six consecutive years of economic growth.
  8. A secret Pentagon study in 2004 reported to President Bush that climate change-caused resource shortages may cause a global war by 2020. It said that shortages of water and energy will become increasingly harder to overcome plunging the planet into war as it is carrying a higher population than it can sustain. Enough said.
  9. USA Today reported in 2013 that the Arctic should be free of ice in the summer by 2020. The prediction was off by 3.9 million square kilometers, which was the amount of remaining ice in September of 2020.
  10. In 2009, The Los Angeles Times reported from a number of government reports that it was expected that all glaciers in Glacier National Park would be gone by 2020. The Park officials posted signs warning visitors that the end of glaciers in the Park was near. In 2020 no glaciers were gone but the signs were removed.

Dr. Lehr posted more details to CFACT.org.

We were just talking about the immensity of the task taken on by those of us who correct the record on climate.

Last year they told us that Australians were doomed to a future of drought and fiery punishment.   Now they’re inundated with massive rainfall and floods Down Under.  Oliver Sawaya fled his home near Sydney with his elderly father in a dinghy.  He said his property “looked as if you were in Sydney Harbor and you were on a boat.”

If Australia’s drought was your fault, whose fault is the flood?

You’d think the warming narrative constantly proving itself ridiculous would make our task easy.

Alas, no.  As a society we are afflicted with a horrendous case of ADD.

The warming people and their compliant media count on us to have memories and attention spans that are about ten minutes long.

Watch for them to shamelessly do an about turn, and attribute Australia’s heavy rain to climate.  They’ll double down on their demands to control what they believe is your over-the-top lifestyle, and the need to redistribute your nest egg as well.  That an El Niño caused the drought and the subsequent La Niña the flood… well who’s going to remind you about that?

CFACT will.

Correcting The Record On Climate

Nary a day goes by without an outrageous claim about climate in the media.

These over-the-top, outrageous assertions are not science.  They are talking points spoon-fed by radical pressure groups to an all-too-compliant media.  They are often made up on the spot.

Just this week Marc Morano posted the facts that debunk media claims that “summer droughts in Europe are now ‘far more severe’ than anything in the past 2,100 years due to climate.”  Climate analyst Paul Homewood explained that scientific data shows nothing of the sort.  In fact two recent papers, that went through the sacred peer review process, reveal first that Europe has had “no significant linear trends in either seasonal or annual rainfall. The second concludes that summer rainfall has increased since 1961.”  These studies rely on real world recorded data for the Czech Republic in contrast to the computer simulations reported in the press.

These stories have a common tell.  Watch out for superlatives such as hottest, coldest, wettest, driest, snowiest, most, etc.

These kind of climate claims scream out for correction.  They raise a passion for truth in those acquainted with the straight facts.  CFACT, our Climate Depot news and information service, and a host of allied friends and organizations dedicate vast efforts to making these corrections.  That’s why the climate-Left will do anything to besmirch and silence us.

The next time you hear an extreme climate claim modified by a superlative, check in at CFACT.org and Climate Depot where you’ll regularly find the hard data which powerfully debunks this sort of hype.

If the press won’t do it’s job, and vet extreme climate claims with hard-hitting analysis, we will.


P.S.  For a primer on the tricks and traps of the climate trade watch CFACT’s feature films Climate Hustle, and Climate Hustle 2: Rise of the Climate Monarchy.

Let’s Kick This Monster’s Ass!

Democrats are hell-bent on implementing a “carbon enforcement mechanism.” What does that mean? It means the enactment of absolutely massive new fossil fuel taxes that will impose draconian lifestyle changes on all but the wealthiest Americans. As we brace ourselves for a plethora of involuntary sacrifices, it’s comforting to know that the wealthy are fully on board at doing their part to help save the planet, none more so than the climate crusading Hollywood megastar mentioned in the article below. You‘ll be humbled when you read about the heroic effort this remarkable champion of the environment is making to save us all from “climate change.”

There’s little doubt that teen climate activist Greta Thunberg believes that human use of fossil fuels is destroying the planet. She believes that with all her heart, but she is being played as a fool by the dissembling wealthy and powerful people who terrorize the world’s children with horrifying claims of impending climate doom.

Of the filthy-rich celebrities who preach the loudest about the need for “each and every one of us” to cut way back on using fossil fuels, not a single one practices what they preach, including one of the world’s most famous pseudo climate crusaders, Hollywood megastar Harrison Ford, who owns multiple mansions, plus a reported 12 private planes, nine motorcycles and six gasoline-powered automobiles.

Although his opulent lifestyle depends upon copious amounts of fossil fuels, Ford speaks forcefully about his undying commitment to “saving the planet.” His passion was on full display at the 2019 Global Climate Action Summit in San Francisco.

“Let’s kick this monster’s ass!”

Why are Hollywood stars used as shills for irrational climate hysteria? Because they’re actorsThey are trained to project emotions they don’t actually feel. In one of the most convincing performances of his award-winning career, Ford concluded his speech at the 2019 Global Climate Action Summit with this zinger:

We all suffer the effects of climate change. So, let’s turn off our phones, let’s roll up our sleeves, and let’s kick this monster’s ass!

At the beginning of his carefully rehearsed performance, and with his talent for feigning raw emotions on full display, the ass-kicking high school graduate angrily bellowed this at his audience of adoring useful idiots:

Stop giving power to people who don’t believe in science! Or worse than that, pretend they don’t believe in science for their own self-interest!

Okay, but what about people like him who say they believe in climate science to shield themselves from criticism for burning unconscionable amounts of fossil fuels? In a video promotion for a climate conference in Dubai, the motion picture megastar said this:

It’s up to you and me to act now to face the greatest moral crisis of our time.

Moral crisis? Act now? Fair enough. So what’s he doing, on a personal level, to “act now”? Other than lecturing people he looks down upon as his moral and intellectual lessers, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.

His enviable real estate holdings include a 14,000 sq. ft. mansion in the heart of one of the most exclusive areas of Los Angeles. He also owns a magnificent Jackson Hole, Wyoming estate, the plans for which he sketched out in Paris while working on a film with fugitive child rapist, Roman Polanski.

Unfortunately for the planet, Ford’s obscenely excessive use of fossil fuel energy isn’t limited to when he’s on the ground working on movies with child rapists or indulging himself in the comfort of his fully air-conditioned mega-mansions: he also flies the world at will in private jets, the most environmentally destructive means of air travel.

Flying up the California coast to get himself a cheeseburger

An outspoken supporter of stratospheric carbon taxes that would prevent ordinary American families from taking a commercial flight to go on vacation, this paragon of environmental virtue-signaling pampers himself by flying in his private planes as often as he wants and for any purpose he wants, the planet be damned. As reported by Breitbart, he boated this:

Flying is like good music; it elevates the spirit and it’s an exhilarating freedom. I’m so passionate about flying that I often fly up the coast for a cheeseburger.

Like other filthy-rich climate hucksters, Harrison Ford flies all over the world for any reason that tickles his fancy, including for trivial purposes like getting himself a cheeseburger.

As evidenced by their elephantine carbon footprints, the ass-kicking cheeseburger addict and his fellow high-flying climate hypocrites are not the least bit concerned that man-made CO2 emissions are harming the planet. A study by researchers at Sweden’s Lund University found that most wealthy climate celebrities are doing nothing to change their insatiable private jet habits, with some responsible for a thousand times more CO2 emissions that the average person.

Finally, for a video treat you won’t soon forget, click on the prompt below to watch a 2-min. segment of Cheeseburger Ford’s “Let’s kick this monster’s ass” speech, which starts off with an Oscar-worthy display of feigned anger. Viewer warning: Barf bag needed.

‘Social Cost of Carbon’ Nonsense

American oil, coal and natural gas are abundant, affordable and efficient, so naturally the anti-energy Left hates them.

Fossil fuels keep the lights on, transportation moving, and our houses warm, all at less cost and a tiny fraction of the land required for inefficient wind and solar.  The math is not on the side of wind and solar.

That’s why the Obama Administration went all-in on a construct called the “social cost of carbon” (SCC).  Joe Biden brought it back “on day one.”  Think of it as politically correct math.

David Wojick lays out a devastating case at CFACT.org:

The Social Cost of Carbon (SCC) has been around for some time. Obama introduced it as a policy measure, which Trump then canceled. Now Biden has brought it back and made it worse.

In a way SCC personifies the craziness of the climate scare. The whole scare is based on outlandish doomsday computer models and SCC is arguably the most absurd of all.

CFACT senior policy analyst Paul Driessen posted a rundown on the arbitrariness of “social cost” math to CFACT.org:

The price tag was set at $22/ton in 2010, raised to $36/ton in 2013, and just as arbitrarily increased to $40, before finishing the Obama era at $51/ton. President Trump disbanded the Interagency Working Group on carbon costs and had the SCC slashed to less than $10/ton. Within hours of taking office, President Biden resurrected the working group, reinstituted $51/ton as a starting point, and directed federal agencies to devise a definitive SCC by 2022…

The SCC enables agencies and their allies to attach any price they wish to every conceivable cost of using fossil fuels: hotter and colder, wetter and drier climate and weather; more frequent and intense hurricanes; reduced agricultural output; forest health and wildfires; floods, droughts and water resources; “forced migration” of people and wildlife;  worsening health and disease; flooded coastal cities; even “reduced student learning and worker productivity,” due to warmer planetary temperatures.

The SCC also lets practitioners completely ignore the obvious and enormous benefits of using fossil fuels, and emitting carbon dioxide – such as enhanced productivity via affordable air conditioning in summer and heating in winter; improved forest, grassland and crop growth (and greening deserts) due to more CO2 in the air; greater home and human survival rates amid extreme weather events; and having the jobs, mobility, living standards, healthcare and longevity of modern industrialized life.

In fact, hydrocarbon and carbon dioxide benefits outweigh costs by 50:1, 400:1 or even 500:1!

That’s right, the benefits of oil, gas and coal to society outweigh the costs!

How’s that for an inconvenient truth?

P.S.  Don’t forget that CO2 and carbon are not the same.  Carbon is the incredibly versatile element, that as Carl Sagan pointed out years ago, “likes to combine.”  You’re made of it.  Carbon dioxide is what you get when a carbon molecule combines with two molecules of oxygen.  CO2 is the odorless, invisible gas you just exhaled.
