The Dark Side of Offshore Wind Power: How It's Destroying Both Pocketbooks and the Environment (Guest: David Stevenson)
In this episode of Environment & Climate News, we dive into the controversial topic of offshore wind power and its potential negative impact on the environment and economy. We explore the violation of the Endangered Species Act through the construction of wind turbines in the critical habitat of the North Atlantic Right Whale, which could threaten its survival, and the potential loss of the domestic seafood supply due to the disruption of the commercial fishing industry.
We also examine the high costs and minimal reduction of carbon dioxide emissions associated with this renewable energy source, raising the question of whether offshore wind power is a sustainable solution for our energy needs.

The Many Threats of ESG (Guest: Jack McPherrin)
il y a 3 jours
43:20Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) has become one of the gravest threats facing the free societies of the world. A cabal of ideologically aligned progressive elites are pushing to have progressive environmental and social justice goals replace the pursuit of profits and wealth creation through ESG under the guise of stakeholder capitalism. ESG is a social credit scoring system that ideologically aligned elites and subservient bureaucratic authorities have developed to “reset” the global financial system to their advantage, fundamentally transforming society in the process. States are fighting ESG pressure. The federal government should join the battle.
Shameful Propaganda From the “Union of Concerned Scientists”
1:06:06In this episode of Environment & Climate News, we'll dissect a recent so-called study from the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) which makes a blatantly false claim attempting to tie fossil fuel products to wildfires in the western United States. Not one, not two, but three glaring issues arise: contradictory data, cherry-picked data, and satellite data, all showing that UCS isn’t just in error, they outright lied.

Policy, Power, and Politics: Renewable Energy Plagues Texas (Guest: Jason Isaac)
44:21Welcome to Environment & Climate News, your source for insights into environmental policies and climate-related issues. This episode, hosted by H. Sterling Burnett, features Jason Isaac from the Texas Public Policy Foundation. Isaac sheds light on a pressing power predicament facing Texas and the nation as a whole: the forced transition from reliable fossil fuel power plants to less dependable wind and solar energy sources.As Texas strives to address this issue, the EPA's new power plan and the substantial subsidies stipulated in the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) potentially pose significant obstacles. The episode delves deeply into these challenges, suggesting that federal courts may eventually declare the EPA's plan unlawful. It also discusses the House Republicans' countermeasures, which target the green subsidies in the IRA as part of their Debt Ceiling adjustment bill. Join us to explore the intricacies of these policy debates and their substantial impact on our environment and future climate.
1:02:32The left has come with yet another ridiculous label to slur climate realists, or for that matter, normal people just driving their car. That label is "petromasculinity," and it's making waves through academia.Host Anthony Watts and expert weekly panelists H. Sterling Burnett and Linnea Lueken will embrace “petro-masculinity” and point out that without it, the world would soon collapse. The panelists also field questions from live viewers on this week's episode of Climate Change Roundtable, live every Friday at noon CT.
NASA Engineer Tom Moser Reveals the Truth About Climate Science
17:20On this podcast, former NASA engineer and program director for the space station Tom Moser gives a presentation to shed light on the science behind climate change. Drawing on his impressive credentials, including serving as Acting Associate Administrator for Spaceflight in Washington, D.C., Director of the Space Station Program, Deputy Manager of the Space Shuttle Orbiter, and Chief Engineer at the Johnson Space Center, Moser highlights the correlation between global temperatures and solar irradiance. He also delves into the disparity between real-world data and often reported climate models, which are used as the basis for governmental public policy, and how these models consistently overestimate temperature trends versus the real-world data. Moser exposes the propaganda in the climate science field and breaks down why media claims are often misleading. This informative presentation is not to be missed by anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of climate science.
Biden vs. The People - Reliable, Affordable, Power?
1:00:35This week’s episode of Climate Change Roundtable features a discussion of the Biden initiative on making power plants do carbon dioxide capture - a technology that is far from proven, much less practical. It is expected this will add significant costs to every power bill in America. Meanwhile, a recent national poll revealed that people simply aren't alarmed by climate alarmism.Host Anthony Watts and expert weekly panelists H. Sterling Burnett and Linnea Lueken will discuss carbon dioxide sequestration as well as the latest poll on episode 61 of Climate Change Roundtable.
Big Banks Net Zero Proxy Proposals are Bad for People, Energy Security and the Economy (Guest: Paul Chesser)
30:49In this podcast, H Sterling Burnett converses with guest Paul Chesser to discuss the interventions of Climate woke special interest in our banking system. Specifically, they discuss how these groups and investors have offered shareholder proxy proposals to force big banks to adopt net zero targets and reporting, and to cease banking with companies in the fossil fuel industry. If successful, these efforts will drive up costs, reduce employment, undermine U.S. energy security, and bankrupt a vital industry, while doing nothing more than enrich elite bankers and green energy profiteers.
Fake and Bake – Earth Day Edition
1:04:01Join us for episode 60 of Climate Change Roundtable, titled "Fake and Bake – Earth Day Edition.” This week’s episode features a smackdown of how the media covers climate and weather stories – badly. For example, one of the stories this week made a claim about a heat wave in Great Britain, with temperatures forecast to 20°C which is 68°F – room temperature!Host Anthony Watts and expert weekly panelists H. Sterling Burnett and Linnea Lueken will show how media simply ignores basic facts and science when covering climate change.Also, we’ll cover Earth Day, this Saturday on 4/22, and some of the craziness surrounding it.
"Fact Checks" and Fecklessness
