Correction to my essay in WUWT, Is Climate Alarmism Governance at War with the USA?: the likely time when hostile activities of the governing body of climate alarmism hypothetically rose to the level of war is 2011-2013, about a year and a half later than written in the article. Thanks to Hilary Ostrov for reminding me of the relevant facts.
Using the term “information warfare” literally while excluding cyber warfare from it, there are two important points to contemplate:
Climate Alarmism has been waging information warfare against the U.S. for many years.
The U.S. military has no information warfare capabilities. Furthermore, employing or even possessing substantial defensive information warfare capacities might be going against the Constitution.
Russia has just acknowledged that its military has Information Warfare Troops.

At this time, there are two viable applications for the photovoltaic solar power:
- Off the grid energy supply for the least developed 3rd world countries.
- Emergency backup power supply for the US households. Notice that the rooftop solar, promoted using fraudulent feed-in tariffs, are designed to shut off in time of power failure, rather than to provide backup.
Photovoltaic solar has a unique advantage of being down-scalable almost infinitely.
Just got back from the Crossroads: Energy & Climate Policy Summit , a climate realism conference in Washington, DC, hosted by the Heritage Foundation and co-sponsored by the Texas Public Policy Foundation.
I was impressed by the number of diplomats from the European countries and the EU! A delegate from the Embassy of France, sitting next to me, was taking notes continuously. The world did take notice that the President-elect would not be bullied by the enviros and the UN.
That gives a hope that the Europe will shake off the yoke of climate alarmism.
