NEW REPORT REVEALS HUGE COST OF CLIMATE CHANGE ACT TO BRITISH HOUSEHOLDS

Posted 13 December 2016

A new report published in London by the Global Warming Policy Foundation reveals the extraordinary £319 billion cost of Britain's Climate Change Act. The report, which is based entirely on official figures, exposes the mischievous attempts  by ministers to try to disguise the true cost to households. "Britain has been gulled by false assurances that decarbonising our economy would be costless into signing up to a stupendous bill of over £300 billion up to 2030," said Peter Lilley MP, the study's author and one of the few Members of Parliament who voted against the Act back in 2008.

HOW AND WHY PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN PULL U.S. OUT OF U.N. GLOBAL WARMING SCARES

Posted 3 December 2016

"As long as America remains an active participant in the [UN Framework Convention on Climate Change], future administrations will be under pressure to ratify new Convention agreements, and billions of dollars will continue to be wasted. The President-elect must put a final and definite end to America's involvement in the U.N. climate scare by formally withdrawing from the root cause of the problem - the hopelessly flawed [FCCC]."  Tom Harris, of the International Climate Science Coalition writes at the Daily Caller
