January 22, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Among other things In his inaugural speech, President Obama confirmed his commitment to expanding green energy programs that have already cost American taxpayers and businesses many billions for highly questionable returns.

Meanwhile, the great ones, who see themselves as the chosen, consider themselves personally exempted to use gobs of energy, continue to propogate climate change nonsense.

In general, it seems that authoritarian types are primarily the ones still demanding, despite much contrary new evidence, the imposition of devastating financial, population control and other burdens on the peoples of the world in the name of "saving Mother earth".

They continue to call for and mandate massive, poorly justified changes to world economic, political and other systems and personal freedoms. All to advance this false, man-hating climate religion based on dubious facts and even outright lies about mankind being primarily responsible for and able to do something significant to halt what has always been a natural up and down of climate since the earth was formed. We admit that man might be aggravating naturally caused developments, but hardly to the extent that is being claimed.

Following are just a few more additions to the long list of articles we have linked to in the past about this issue that are not given the credibility they deserve, especially in schools and colleges and other government related institutions and in many media. To read all the rest, do a LifeSitenews search on the phrases "climate change", "global warming", "environmental extremism".

Some of the links in this posting go back to early last year. I have not been able to publish Newsbytes for some time because of other LifesiteNews demands during that time period. The linked items are however still relevant today.

To be quite frank, I am getting quite angry and deeply concerned about this historically unprecedented and dangerous abuse of trust and power. Are you? And if not, why not?

'Scientists baffled by the stop in global warming' -- Der Spiegel Ends Europe's Climate Denialism...European Media Now Scrambling To Explain End Of Warming!

NOAA: Accelerating Global Warming Is Not Happening - CO2 Wrongly Accused

David Suzuki’s Andean fantasy
Mother Earth fantasies emanating from Ecuador are the reverse of the truth. The three big ideas for which Mr. Suzuki was shilling are extortion, go-it-alone autarchy, and putting nature before humanity by giving rivers and rocks “rights.”

Desist from climate claims
Current knowledge does not substantiate Ban Ki-Moon assertions on weather and climate, 125 scientists say

Scientist who said climate change sceptics had been proved wrong accused of hiding truth by colleague - Daily Mail
Prof Judith Curry, who chairs the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at America’s prestigious Georgia Institute of Technology, said that Prof Muller’s claim that he has proven global warming sceptics wrong was also a ‘huge mistake’, with no  scientific basis.

Ehrlich: ‘Nobody has the Right to Have 12 Children – or Even Three’
Paul Ehrlich, the doomsday biologist who coined the term “The Population Bomb” more than 40 years ago with a book of the same name, says the world now faces “dangerous trends” of global climate change and overpopulation, which threaten our extinction.

Humans are plague on Earth – Attenborough - Daily Telegraph

Davos call for $14trn 'greening' of global economy
Political and business leaders warned of need to ensure sustainable growth
Only a sustained and dramatic shift to infrastructure and industrial practices using low-carbon technology can save the world and its economy from devastating global warming, according to a Davos-commissioned alliance led by the former Mexican President, Felipe Calderon, in the most dramatic call so far to fight climate change on business grounds.

Science Proves a Conservative Really is a Liberal Mugged by Reality - Wesley J. Smith
Consider: I think it is fair to say that liberals tend to be the most enthusiastic for legalizing assisted suicide.  Why?  Fear and loathing of suffering, while the usually more conservative opponents tend to see the hope for healing (as opposed to cure) in every situation.  Animal rights supporters also tend to be the most zealous leftists. So too global warming alarmists who scream about the PLANET DYING and see in every weather anomaly proof of nature's Apocalypse! Indeed, liberals always seem the angrier to me.

Meltwater from Asia's peaks is much less then previously estimated - The Guardian
but lead scientist says the loss of ice caps and glaciers around the world remains a serious concern. The discovery has stunned scientists, who had believed that around 50bn tonnes of meltwater were being shed each year and not being replaced by new snowfall.

Earth's Polar Ice Melting Less Than Thought
Better technology yields better data. The bad news is the extra water from 2003-2010 would fill Lake Erie eight times

$65-million for ducks (?) and more - Vivian Krause, Financial Post
Over the past decade, grants to green groups from U.S. charitable foundations have quadrupled from roughly US$500 million to more than US$2-billion. With 251 employees and an annual payroll of $10-million in 2010, Tides Canada is a powerhouse. It has more than twice as many employees as the Vancouver-based Fraser Institute and the Vancouver Foundation combined.

Discovered: 116,000 square miles of 'missing' polar ice cap By Phil Lawler
it's fair to say that Catholic prelates probably shouldn't issue statements that seem to lend the authority of the Church to scientific hypotheses that remain unproven.

Who's got guts for global warming debate?
Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., says he's "disappointed" that though he was very willing to engage in a nationally televised debate on global warming, the man who challenged him to the debate has now backed out.
