“The most sophisticated [peer-reviewed, scientific] examination considering the Earth’s eco-deadline was just published in August  in the journal Nature Ecology & Evolution. Drawing upon 36 meta-analyses, involving more than 4,600 individual studies spanning the last 45 years, nine ecologists, working from universities in Germany, France, Ireland, and Finland, explain that the empirical data simply does not permit the determination of any kind of environmental dooms date, or ‘thresholds‘ as scientists call them. These scholars state frankly: ‘We lack systematic quantitative evidence as to whether empirical data allow definition of such thresholds‘ and ‘our results thus question the pervasive presence of threshold concepts‘ found in environmental politics and policy today. They explain that natural bio-systems are so dynamic — ever evolving and adapting over the long-term — that determining longevity timeframes is impossible. Talk of a ticking eco-clock is simply [ideologically & politically motivated] dogma. Two major books published in 2020 serve as carefully researched and copiously documented critiques of environmental scaremongering. Both [Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All and False Alarm] are written by pedigreed [and credentialed] progressive environmentalists concerned about the irrationally wild rhetoric of late.”

“[N.Y.] state officials… concluded that hydraulic fracturing [‘fracking’] could be performed safely in New York. Yet amid political pressure from the environmentalist lobby, [Governor Cuomo] buried the findings.”
“[T]he U.S. has been the world’s leader in reducing carbon emissions for over a decade. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, carbon emissions in this country declined 14 percent between 2005 and 2017, mainly because more electricity has been generated from fracked natural gas…Fracking does release methane gas [which is about 100 times more powerful a greenhouse gas than CO2], but according to the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2018 Greenhouse Gas Inventory, released in April 2019, U.S. methane emissions declined 15.8 percent between 1990 and 2017, while natural gas production increased by 51 percent. Nonetheless, virtually every Democratic presidential candidate who participated in CNN’s  seven-hour climate change marathon opposes fracking.”
