Rockefellers picked another winner, a $1 billion a day haul based on something that doesn't exist

A lack of global warming is irrelevant to global warming profits. The Rockefellers have picked another winner.

The global warming scare is now a $1 billion a day industry.

Fossil fuel billionaire Rockefeller money backs CO2 danger activist group 350.org.

Scientific consensus states global temperatures haven't increased in 15+ years, could remain flat for another decade, that US CO2 has plunged, is expected to go lower, that China's has skyrocketed, and will likely go higher. 30 year peer reviewed science finds CO2 doesn't cause planet warming to begin with, that CO2 lags temperatures. EPA scientists in US Federal Register say proposed rules to limit CO2 emissions from power plants "will result in negligible CO2 emissions changes." ("Costs and Benefits" subhead, Jan. 2014.) Meaning, pending rules politicians claim will improve the atmosphere will do no such thing.

"Scientists have struggled to explain the so-called pause that began in 1999, despite ever increasing levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. 

The latest theory says that a naturally occurring 30-year cycle in the Atlantic Ocean is behind the slowdown....

The world's overall temperatures haven't risen beyond the record set in 1998....[subhead, 'Ice age fears']

 “Not only that, but as my top chart shows, US CO2 emissions are falling even faster than what President Obama pledged in the global Copenhagen Accord.”…Here is the biggest shocker of all: the average American’s CO2 emissions are down to levels not seen since 1964  --over half a century ago. …Coal is the number two source of CO2 for Americans. Today the average American burns an amount similar to what they did in 1955, and even less than they did in the 1940s. …It is exactly America’s historical role of biggest and dirtiest that makes their sharp decline in CO2 pollution so noteworthy and potentially game changing at the global level.”...

"Bentek says that (US) power companies plan to retire 175 coal-fired plants over the next five years [by 2017]. That could bring coal's CO2 emissions down to 1980 levels."...

8/16/12, “AP IMPACT: CO2 emissions in US drop to 20-year low,” AP, Kevin Begos

In a surprising turnaround, the amount of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere in the U.S. has fallen dramatically to its lowest level in 20 years and government officials say the biggest reason is that cheap and plentiful natural gas has led many power plant operators to switch from dirtier-burning coal.

Many of the world's leading climate scientists didn't see the drop coming in large part because it happened as a result of market forces rather than direct government action against carbon dioxide....


In a little-noticed technical report, the U.S. Energy Information Agency, a part of the Energy Department, said this month that energy related U.S. CO2 emissions for the first four months of this year fell to about 1992 levels."...
