Two years ago, the Obama administration practically staged an airlift of leading Democratic officials to the UN climate conference in Copenhagen. Barack Obama himself made an appearance, as did Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, and even Republican Senator Jim Inhofe, who went to represent the AGW skeptics and demand answers to the then-breaking Climategate scandal. In the end, Obama could only produce a non-binding agreement that even he didn’t agree to sign, while domestic support for climate-change policy collapsed underneath him.
Fast forward two years. We have Climategate 2.0 accompanying another UN conference on climate change, this time in Durban. The one big difference? The White House has completely ignored it. Senator Inhofe sends his greetings to the Durban conference and gleefully points out that they have become irrelevant.
IER Board Member, Steven Hayward, exposes how US energy policies have restricted access to America’s vast energy resources. The result? America is less competitive in the world, energy prices are skyrocketing, and the economy is suffering. The United States must open federal lands to exploration and end the regulatory blockade that keeps shale oil and gas out of our reach.

Thanks Nancy G! Interesting article about who makes the billionaires!!!!!
“Joanne Rowling was a welfare mother in Edinburgh, Scotland. All that has changed. As the writer of the ‘Harry Potter’ novels, having a net worth of $1 billion, she is the world’s wealthiest author. … How did Rowling become so wealthy and unequal to the rest of us? The entire blame for this social injustice lies at the feet of the world’s children and their enabling parents. … [T]he millions of ’99-percenters’ who individually plunk down $8 or $9 to attend a ‘Harry Potter’ movie, $15 to buy a ‘Harry Potter’ novel or $30 to buy a ‘Harry Potter’ Blu-ray Disc are directly responsible for contributing to income inequality and wealth concentration that economist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman says ‘is incompatible with real democracy.’ … Read more »
Found this on Big Journalism. The video clip is entertaining… People in the movement are becoming what they are protesting!
These are marginal and marginally intelligent people who have grown up conditioned by public educators and the welfare state to believe that they’re something special and entitled to the good life just because they’re special and entitled to the good life. And they’ve also been brainwashed to believe that if America doesn’t acknowledge their specialness and if, indeed, they’re not enjoying the good life, the problem must be a corrupt America.
Hat tip to Tom J! Great news!
FYI, Florida repealed its Growth Management Act this year. A citizen reacts:
It seems to me the current sour economy presents an ideal opportunity to destroy ICLEI. Florida Governor Scott apparently thought so. The GMA is Agenda 21 in a bun, IMHO.
Hat tip to Michael at PSCU:
I suspect many of you have heard of another release of emails (just more from the same timeframe as before — up to and including 2009) between the main proponents of the climate warming hysteria, but if you haven’t it is easy to get caught up-to-date. Go to this website. Not only does it supply a searchable database of the emails, but also has links to commentaries and analyses by various bloggers and journalists. One teaser: Some of these so-called objective scientists believe they are in a “cause” they need to defend. Of course, their answer is always more government run by the ever so brilliant elitists who just brought down the world economy. We weren’t dazzled by their brilliance; rather, we have been baffled (hoodwinked) by their BS. And now we are all paying the price.
