Trump to Replace Alarmist Climate Models With Sound Science

Given the fact that extremist climate-change-prognostication models have been wildly inaccurate, it would be wise to avoid basing any serious environmental policy on them. In fact, anyone interested in following the sound and time-tested scientific method would demand nothing less, and yet the Leftmedia is up in arms over President Donald Trump’s recent decision to do just that. The New York Times blows its climate alarmist’s dog whistle with the headline, “Trump Administration Hardens Its Attack on Climate Science.” Hardly.

The Times fallaciously asserts that “the attack on science is underway,” supposedly evidenced by Trump’s appointment of geologist and former astronaut James Reilly as the director of the United States Geological Survey. And how is Reilly “attacking science”? By insisting upon the practice of sound science. The Times huffs, “Reilly … has ordered that scientific assessments produced by that office use only computer-generated climate models that project impact of climate change through 2040, rather than through the end of the century, as had been done previously.”

In reality, Trump is pushing for the government to return to adhering to sound scientific practice for informing policy decisions, rather than agenda-driven hysterics. James Hewitt, a spokesman for the Environmental Protection Agency, explained, “The previous use of inaccurate modeling that focuses on worst-case emissions scenarios [and] that does not reflect real-world conditions needs to be thoroughly reexamined and tested if such information is going to serve as the scientific foundation of nationwide decision-making now and in the future.”

So much spin.

Trump wants to lift restrictions on coal, and he can't do that because the governments comprehensive collection of actual climate science from the experts in their fields directly contradict what he wants to do.

This is what happens in regimes that have an agenda... they want an outcome. That is why those regimes reports are not trusted, nor are they considered valid. At least for now, the United States has the most legitimate and trusted research and science. Doing this will make us as laughable as those regimes.

Science, has no agenda. It collects the data, attempts to falsify, and the experts form a consensus. There is no alarmist anything. Just because you don't like the results, doesn't invalidate them. You follow the facts, no matter what they say.

The fact is the restrictions Trump wants to lift in the long run will hurt the economy, not help it.

Is'nt it funny how liberals scream that climate change is settled science... its not ..yet dispute the true facts of settled science when it comes to genetic facts concerning if your M or F (transgendism) or that conception is the beginning of a human being (abortion)

Our planet has been changing in all different directions for many years , now that's a fact weather station . 350, 000,000 people at risk today and tomorrow . Get my drift ? The weather station , total drama at it's best!

The screaming elephant in the room is GEOENGINEERING.

The US Military is conducting clandestine weather modification actions over the US population with absolutely no regard for the harm inflicted upon all living organisms. They pretend to be mitigating global warming using SRA (solar radiation management) but they are making things much worse. The aerosols are reflecting the UV directly onto the surface (white sky). Then the material falls back to earth and covers everything. Since it is a desecant (water absorbent) it dehydrates the plants.

Finally the recent weather events include massive flooding in the midwest, record tornado activity, and huge amounts of hail incidents. These weather events are not normal. They are the result of the weather modification program.

When I was as in grade school in the 1970s we were going to be frozen by now. Then the 1990s Al Gore invented the internet and global warming was going to fry us to death by now. Now that both of those have been debunked they call it climate change I guess if I could make millions of dollars from it I would be on board but I take personal responsibility so I can't just find a money making reason to blame things on. Oh and electric cars do create more CO2 than a Ram 2500 diesel heavy metals don't dig themselves out of the ground and batteries don't automatically charge. The government has ran out of things to tax now what was illegal is now a miracle so they can tax it. Extra extra scientist have just found Heroin is not bad and doesn't kill let's open a dispensary in every town.

7:48 I agree with everything you stated except about electric cars creating more CO2 than a Ram 2500 diesel. Neither creates CO2 gases, that would be carbon dioxide. You were probably referring to CO gas, which is carbon monoxide, a byproduct of combustion
