The first, most idiotic, is one of the President Obama’s biggest whoppers:
[…] Cook and Co. analysed somewhere between 11,944 and 12,876 papers – they can’t get their story straight on the sample size – but only 64 of these explicitly state that humans are the primary cause of recent global warming. A reexamination of their data brought that number down to 41. That is half a per cent or less of the total, rather than 97 percent.

Australians are all going to fry, oh, wait, maybe not: Most Australians are skeptical: mankind is not main driver of the climate – ‘Despite the unending propaganda 60% of Australians are not convinced’

Last, but not least for now, saved by … rhubarb?: Rhubarb to save us from global warming
Ambrose Evans Pritchard’s latest effort in the Telegraph is very long but rather amusing in the way that it repeats every utterance of the greens without question.
An astonishing report – blandly titled “How Large Are Global Energy Subsidies” – alleges that the fossil nexus enjoys hidden support worth 6.5pc of world GDP.
This will amount to $5.7 trillion in 2015, mostly due to environmental costs and damage to health, and mostly stemming from coal. The World Health Organisation – also on cue – has sharply revised up its estimates of early deaths from fine particulates and sulphur dioxide from coal plants.
Right on cue indeed! One wonders whether the possibility that he was merely a conduit for a political PR campaign ever crossed AEP’s mind. Then again, as you read all the garbage he has introduced into his article, you have to wonder if it is not a role that he is wholeheartedly embracing. Elon Musk! Four degrees! Rhubarb powered batteries! It’s mindblowing.
Please send more money: Nobel Chutzpah Prize 2015: UN, World Bank need “$89 Trillion” to fix climate
The ambit claims know no bounds. Who else would ask for $89,000,000,000,000? If the evil “more developed” nations pay for their carbon sins, the bill for those 1.3 billion people works out at $70,000 per person by 2030 (babies included).* When the target is 89,000 billion dollars, anything the Global Saviours get, can be painted as “not enough”. (It’s never enough). A trillion in funds is a “tiny”, “insufficient” amount that is “barely adequate”. Compliant journalists will print those headlines. The crowd will pay the money and feel guilty they are not paying more. […]
