Not only is San Fran Nan wasting tax dollars and spewing carbon by the ton to attend a rah rah rally for climate change she's now making policy.

That doesn't cost as much as the barrage by the MSM and universities about disaster around the corner. I will rely on common sense and its contagious nature.
You mean like the "common sense" that unsubsidized renewable energy-related technologies are increasing reaching economic parity-and in some regions have already exceeded economic parity-with conventional fossil fuel and other non-renewable energy-related technologies?

And, it's certainly no mystery while utility companies in the US and elsewhere are increasingly adopting these rather...ummm...contagious technologies. (Mystery hint, for the less observant.: $$$)

The pressure they feel leaves them no choice. Your source is trying to make money on that.

Sounds like a face saving desperate attempt to assure her cronies that she's still in. Except she's claiming the whole country is in. Isn't that treasonous?
She's doing something besides playing golf!

WASHINGTON — Senior U.S. officials warned Wednesday that climate change is an increasing threat to national security, a message at odds with a broader Trump administration effort to downplay the threat from global warming.
Military and intelligence officials outlined a range of long-term threats arising from climate change, including food and water shortages that can produce political turmoil and land disputes as well as melting ice in the Arctic that Russia and other adversaries could exploit for commercial gain.

The first job of a leader is to protect the people. With President Trump’s continued denial of the risks of climate change — and proposed appointment of a White House panel clearly meant to undermine the military’s assessment of this danger — he is failing at that fundamental obligation. As a former naval officer, it is deeply disturbing to me to see our commander in chief strike the colors in the face of danger.

Climate change is a national security threat. Stronger storms will lead to increasing damage to coastal military facilities, as when Hurricane Michael caused substantial damage at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida. Stresses on resources and agricultural changes will increase the global flow of refugees and cause cross-border instability. That, in turn, will mean greater involvement of U.S. forces around the world.

For years, the Pentagon included the impacts of climate change in our defense planning. In 2003, the Department of Defense under President George W. Bush concluded climate change “should be elevated beyond a scientific debate to a U.S. national security concern.” The last several Quadrennial Defense Reviews, which assess the array of threats facing the United States, have considered the impact of global warming. The QDR stated that “the impacts of climate change may increase the frequency, scale, and complexity of future missions.”

This video highlights the Pentagon's focus on climate change as the military examines potential risks, strategic responses, and impacts of climate change on future military and humanitarian missions. In 2010, for the first time, the Pentagon focused on climate change as a significant factor in its Quadrennial Defense Review of potential risks and strategic responses. Rear Admiral David Titley, Oceanographer of the Navy, explains why the US military sees clear evidence of climate change and how those changes will affect future military and humanitarian missions.

A little education is in order.
According to Guterres, “What is still lacking is political will.” And yet, despite all this “lack of political will,” some 70 countries have pledged carbon neutrality by 2050. Conspicuously absent from the proceedings, however, is the Trump Administration. No senior member of President Trump’s administration is in attendance at COP25.
President Trump’s refusal to cosign radical climate extremism is a courageous gesture of principled inaction.
It is about control .
For leaders supporting the Paris agreement, the specter of catastrophic warming provides the moral justification for ever-higher taxation, ever-tighter regulation, ever-greater state interference, ever-larger slush funds for big-spending politicians, and ever-diminished individual freedom to use, acquire, and consume at will.

I can help you with that!
Inconvenient Facts claims, over and over, to be based in science and emphasizes the importance of the scientific method; however, the author does not, himself, use the scientific method in his own analysis. There are no references to any peer-reviewed journal articles by Wrightstone himself. Many of his “inconvenient facts” are non-controversial statements. In fact, most of them are actually true. It’s the conclusions that he draws from the “facts” that are not supported by peer-reviewed journal papers — they’re just his own misleading opinions.​
Concrete examples are listed in the article.

I am not denying climate change. I just call it weather. The panic is nothing but another big lie too control people and destroy capitalism. You think the rich are rich now? These changes are gradual and unpredictable. This is a new science invented just to try and prove something they could use to beat people over the head with. And any informed person knows the numbers can also be used to prove it is a hoax.

Socialism Is the Greatest Threat to the Environment
If we want a true alternative to fossil fuels that improves the environment, reduces emissions, and strengthens global welfare, it will only come from the free market.


Historical evidence and economic incentives show us that
Remember the people that want climate action wish to destroy that free market. That means instead of solutions people can just suffer.
