Steve Goreham is a speaker, an author, a researcher on environmental issues, and an independent columnist. He’s the Executive Director of the Climate Science Coalition of America, a non-political association dedicated to informing about the realities of climate science and energy economics. Steve gave this presentation at the Friends of Science 'Climate Dogma Exposed' event in Calgary on May 9th 2017. He says "contrary to what your political leader, professor, and newspaper tell you, global warming is dominated by natural factors. As a result, thousands of climate and energy laws across hundreds of nations, all summed together, are not going to have a measureable effect on Earth’s temperatures."

Thank you

Facebook has declared this video false! The video was shared on my group "CLIMATE CHANGE IS A HOAX". I tend to agree with the video but I'm not a scientist though I have read and studied the topic for years. I wanted to alert Friends of Science and maybe Mr. Steve Goreham of Facebook's

I wonder if that idiot Barack Obama has seen this in his mansion by the sea ?

another one for David Attenborough, who made a totally corrupt video on walruses, claiming the global warming made them fall off a cliff when it was overcrowding and polar bears hunting, Prime tv and school strike 4 climate to watch. Apparently, Prime tv thinks I am harassing them. Well, they shouldn't alarm the population with that corrupt rubbish by David Attenborough, Prime Planet and that climate rubbish spouted in it before seeing whether ( no pun intended ) it has any facts in it, or if its based on science as proven by rigor, or not.

There are no satellites in space. It is all done by weather balloons.

It has become apparent at this point that nothing matters to these global warming alarmists. They see this as a means to an end. They see it as a foot in the door to totalitarian rule facts be damned.

Carbon dioxide is beneficial to humans aswell. The less oxygen in the air, the more CO2 our cells and body holds on to for better oxidation of cells and better more contolled respiration of the cells. Instead of reverting to primitive means of energy such as lactic acid use.
Ray Peat has great articles on this.

Not even water vapour is the greenhouse gas. That effect doesn't exist, watch this people:
take the information and shell the hell alarmists&warmists!!!
The decades old technique perfected by the tobacco industry is to manufacture the appearance of a continued debate through fake experts. Climate change is a complicated, multi-disciplinary science and yet many of the leading voices who purport to know better than the experts have never published a single piece of climate research.

The professional climate deniers are using the same playbook as the tobacco industry used to play down the hazards of tobacco smoking. A playbook which was created by the lead polluters. Some of the climate denial think tanks are in fact still denying the hazards of tobacco smoking.

Its called denial for profit. Friends of Science are masters of it. Beware when watching this video. Virtually every "fact" it presents is a distortion of actual science.

I've found the reason Drax power station burns wood biomass, imported from the USA. The EU has a ruling power generators need to produce a certain percentage of power from renewable energy. Biomass ( where the CO2 emissions are not counted !!!!! ) helped the generation company avoid a fine. Once fined, they would be required to make more expensive changes. This is about to come to an end. Not to mention the cutting in the USA, processing into pellets, transport to the UK, drying out for burn, produces more CO2 than when they burned coal dug from coal mines within 10 and 15 miles from the plant. Its just more enviro-bollocks produced to placate the stupids

Climate Alarmists Believe in the P.T Barnum philosophy. There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute. It’s are Children.
Daryl Kesler
Sadly I don't believe all the contributing factors are included in the man made global warming hysteria. ( Settled science is far from true) add on top of that unwilling adults as well as children (1.6 dislikes) that don't even wonder or seem to care if they are being told the truth.
who then argue with great conviction about something they have no understanding of. Yet you are crazy for questioning the story.
Have our societies and more so corporations polluted this planet..? yes to a unbelievable extent. And needs to be addressed but I don't know how much more average Joe can be hit on more taxes to feed the machine!

Florida is still sinking because of the removal of ice in Canada.

Your co2 cycle does not include shellfish who have been locking up co2 in rock for millions of years .

Climate change alarmism is a huge racket and hoax.
No, chicken Little the sky is not falling. Even if it was you would not be able to stop it.
Humans have negligible impact on climate!
Keith Allsebrook
I had a interest in Ancient cultures especially the Maya. They had a accumulated amazing knowledge about the Sun and the Solar system and also the Universe. So when everyone started claiming we were changing the climate with our CO2 production. I was sceptical but listened. I still studied the scientific research on the Sun and realized over time that climate is extremely complicated. The computet models couldn't possibly work because they could not take into account the number of infuences on clinate. They global alarmists have simplified something that's very complicated and sold a limited version of climate to the general public who won't be bothered to challenge the status quo.
Roger Diogo
Scientists were ABSOLUTE sure, the CO2 causes warming, and would progressively get worst, How the explain the drop in the temperatures Worldwide NOW? BY adding a new escape goat, the ocean ate the warming, LOL!
Thanks for your lecture Steve: well presented and thought-provoking.
Greg Poirier
It doesn't matter WHO is responsible, man or Nature.......what matters is WHAT ARE WE GONNA DO ABOUT IT ?

Breakthrough in renewable energy - VPRO Climate Science and the Myths of Renewable 11 months ago   46:11

It’s not in the papers but a silent revolution is moving across the world. Renewable energy is becoming cheaper than from fossil fuels. It means that progressively the choice for wind and solar energy is no longer an ethical one but an economic one. And this will speed up the transfer to renewable energy.

In countries like Brazil, Australia, Chile and parts of the United States people consider renewable energy because of financial reasons. The price of solar and wind energy will continue to drop and in more countries renewable energy will occur.

A surprising newcomer on the market is Morocco, where the government expects that in 2020 more than 40 percent of the energy could come from solar energy.
