This week, Heartland Institute President and CEO Joseph Bast joined the Unbiased America show to talk about the new book, Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming. Unbiased America is a weekly video podcast featuring a panel of several liberty-minded individuals who strive to “create a platform for discussion and debate.” Bast dismantles the claim that 97% or scientists have arrived at a consensus that man is causing catastrophic global warming.

Tonight at 7 p.m. ET, Heartland Institute President Joe Bast will give a live-streamed presentation that was a huge hit at CPAC last week – “Never Again Lose a Debate with a Climate Alarmist: Why Scientists Disagree About Global Warming.” About 150 people crammed into a room to fit only 111 to hear Joe talk.
David Haynes’ column last week on global warming (“We need straight talk on climate change,” Dec. 1) was especially frustrating for those of us who closely follow the scientific and political debate. I appreciate his invitation to share my thoughts with Journal Sentinel readers.
Interesting that National Geographic choose to title its latest edition “Cool It.” That’s the same as the title of Bjorn Lomborg’s 2007 book, which asks environmentalists to cool down their hot rhetoric about man-made global warming. Pity the folks at NatGeo didn’t read it.
Klein’s greatest strength is recognizing that nothing less than the abolition of capitalism will achieve the drastic reductions in emissions her side is calling for … and she’s willing to say it out loud. I love that about her. The leaders of the environmental movement, who pretend this isn’t about ideology and that “stopping” climate change would be costless, hate her for revealing this.
Parents and students should be treated more like customers of a service business, with private schools competing to do the best job possible for each child. Not only would schools be run more efficiently with little or no bureaucracy, but they would be responsive to their customers: parents and teachers.
How has Shimer College done since the inmates took it over? A ranking of colleges published by Washington Monthly in October — based on cost of tuition, student indebtedness, and graduation rates and adjusted for the percentage of students who are minority or low-income — ranked Shimer the worst college in America.
Heartland and the scientists it works with have never promoted “denial of a changing climate.” The climate is always changing. The question is whether man’s contribution to climate change rises above statistical noise and whether it is a crisis.
If you could not join the hundreds of scientists, policy experts, and interested citizens in Las Vegas this week for The Heartland Institute’s 9th International Conference on Climate change …[…]
The assertion that 97% of scientists believe that climate change is a man-made, urgent problem is a fiction. The so-called consensus comes from a handful of surveys and abstract-counting exercises that have been contradicted by more reliable research.
The release of Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) has sparked a predictable backlash from the mainstream media and the scientific community. Yet it is a document that cannot be quashed with the usual dose of scorn; it’s far too well-researched for that!
The IPCC was set up by the World Meteorological Organization and the United Nations Environmental Program. It has enlisted thousands of scientists to contribute to its scare campaign, but as Joseph Bast, the president of The Heartland Institute, noted in a recent Forbes article regarding the vast difference in the assertions of the IPCC scientists and those of its puckishly named Nonintergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (NPCC), “What is a non-scientist to make of these dueling reports? Indeed, what is a scientist to make of this?”
Our government has lied to Americans about the global warming, and the result has been the expenditure of billions of taxpayer dollars on something that was not happening and is not happening.
Why the concern over President Obama’s Executive Orders? It is human nature that desensitization will creep in as related to frequency, making felt outrage over each successive mandate seem less intense or serious. The result: executive orders are likely to become more frequent and increasingly more extreme in their content in the absence of any serious push back to reign them in.
