  • Obama’s post-election plans for a secret radical agenda

    He’s the Staller in Chief — President Obama has punted almost every hot-button issue past the key midterm elections on Nov. 4. Obama has postponed decisions on a raft of contentious issues related to ObamaCare, Gitmo, immigration and his Cabinet. This is partly to protect Democratic candidates and hold onto the Senate. But it’s more than that. Obama plans a number of radical moves later this year when the administration believes the media, and the public, are paying less attention. This includes a forced transformation of our neighborhoods, a huge influx of immigrants and billions of dollars in additional taxes....
  • If GOP Takes Senate, Climate Change Deniers Will Control Key Committees (That's a bad thing?)

    It wasn’t long ago that coal executives were openly discussing their dream of Republicans seizing the White House and making Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe — who believes climate change is a “hoax” concocted by greedy scientists — the head of the EPA. Now, they have a second chance. As dark money groups and SuperPACs backed by millions of dollars from the fossil fuel industry are propelling Republicans to a Senate majority, climate science-denying politicians are likely to seize control of key committee chairmanships, a coup for companies seeking to pollute the atmosphere with impunity. What’s more, Inhofe is slated to...

    Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Gina McCarthy said Friday that the public does not want more "debate or discussion" about climate change, but government action. "First, people overwhelmingly consider climate change to be a problem—and they want action, not more debate or discussion," McCarthy said in a speech at Georgetown University. "Second, what’s even more impressive, is that we see overwhelming support specifically for EPA action to curb carbon pollution from power plants," she said. "Now that is music to my ears."

    Billionaire Tom Steyer's political group NextGen Climate is going to try to shame climate skeptics into changing their stance on global warming in a final midterm push before November. NextGen is running a "science denier week" with events planned in the Senate and gubernatorial races it is involved in across the country. "Today we are issuing a specific challenge to deniers, giving them one last time to come clean before voters vote," said Chris Lehane, Steyer's top adviser. The "Stone Age Challenge" will ask candidates if they want to "protect the communities you represent" or "continue to support caveman-like policies...

    Threats of a state seceding from the country, or a part of a state creating its own state due to political differences, typically don’t go anywhere. Well, except for that one time in the 1860’s. Texas and Vermont both threatened to do so out of frustration with the policies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama, but both remain part of the United States. There have been several attempts over the last few decades to carve Californian up into as many as six separate states. Now, some in Southern Florida are toying with the possibility of launching a secession effort...

    Despite all the gloom and doom from people like Paul Ehrlich and the warmers who say global warming will stunt food production, the reality is far different. It seems the increase in CO2 along with adaptive crop genetics may have combined to produce this bonanza. Based on the latest forecasts for production and utilization, world cereal stocks at the close of crop seasons ending in 2015 would surge to 627.5 million tonnes, up 8.3 percent from an already large volume at the start of the season and its highest level in 15 years. Maize would account for the biggest increase,...

    WASHINGTON, October 24 (RIA Novosti) - US President Barack Obama along with environmental activists is waging an all-out assault on American oil and gas production and hydraulic fracturing, a report published by the US Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW) said. "This strategically organized alliance [between the Obama administration and far-left environmental activists] has gone to great lengths to misconstrue facts, falsify science, and manufacture risks in order to vilify hydraulic fracturing with the long-term goal of ending the production of the nation's oil and natural gas resources," the 111-page report published Thursday said.

    Never let it be said that Mother Nature doesn't appreciate irony. A new study led by researchers at Occidental College and the University of California at Santa Barbara has found that the oil platforms dotting the California coast are fantastic for sea life. In a 15-year study, researchers found that the ecosystems that build up around artificial rigs host 1,000 percent more fish and other sea life than natural habitats such as reefs and estuaries. The California rigs outstripped even famously rich ecosystems such as the coral reefs of French Polynesia. Now, as a big fan of artificial reefs, I...

The Defense Department will begin by integrating plans for climate change risks across all of its operations, from war games and strategic defense planning situations to a rethinking of the...

    Two weeks after proclaiming that it was “unlikely” for Ebola to arrive in the US, President Obama was proven wrong. No doubt, prior to his statement at the CDC, the President was briefed by “experts” who had arrived at the “unlikely” “consensus” – see how well “consensus” works in science? One would think that the “unlikely” arrival of the virus would have been sufficient to trigger alarm bells for people whose business should be to protect Americans.

Now of course, excessive carbon emissions into the atmosphere remain a serious concern and a real problem. So what can we do to solve it? First, let's look at the main sources of carbon emissions. The two big ones are energy production and agriculture, which is set to explode...

    On Monday, Dr. David Agus injected the media's regular hype about climate change into CBS This Morning's coverage of the outbreak of Enterovirus D68 in the U.S. and the Ebola crisis in Africa. The morning show brought on Dr. Agus to discuss the polio-like virus that has afflicted children across the country. Near the end of the segment, anchor Charlie Rose wondered, "So we have Ebola virus in Africa, and we now have this virus [Enterovirus D68]. What's going on?" The CBS medical contributor admitted that science didn't have any answers at this point, but that didn't stop him from...

    Last week’s People's Climate March drew 400,000 people onto the streets of Manhattan and a great deal of international attention to a subject of dire urgency. But some were skeptical about the event’s overall significance. “The march slogan was, ‘to change everything, we need everyone,’ which is telling, because it won’t change everything, because it didn’t include everyone,” wrote David Roberts of Grist. “Specifically, it won’t change American politics because it didn’t include conservatives.” True enough. If there weren’t such a stark divide between American conservatives and almost everyone else on the question of the existence and importance of climate...

    Someone obviously read Obama’s handbook on governing. Crisis-hit France is “sick”, the country’s new economy minister said.“France is sick. It’s not well. We have to describe the situation as it is,” Emmanuel Macron told French radio.Added to its economic woes, the country is weighed down by a political crisis that has seen President Francois Hollande plumb record lows in opinion polls and a shock cabinet reshuffle in August to purge dissenters.The government’s unpopularity “is due to a lack of results”, said Macron. But President Hollande, the garden gnome of European politics, has the cure. More Global Warming ecoscam spending. French...

    A CBS analyst on Monday specifically linked the outbreak of Ebola that has decimated parts of Africa and has been newly found in the United States to climate change.

    resident Obama recently proclaimed climate change, more than any issue, will define the contours of the 21st Century. Powerful men searching for legacy often evoke grand challenges and personal solutions, but climate change is only one of several forces that will make civilization different 100 years from now. 1. Challenges to Democracy In the 19th and 20th Centuries, democracies embracing free markets outperformed more autocratic and collectivist societies. However, over the last 60 years, majority rule in the West has fashioned government policies that redistribute income indiscriminately, displace investments in infrastructure and technology, and slow growth. China—albeit with shortcomings—has created...

    A professor is blaming climate change and overpopulation for the creation of the terrorist group ISIS. Charles Strozier, Professor of History and the founding Director of the John Jay College Center on Terrorism and Kelly Berkell, research assistant at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, wrote a blog piece in the Huffington Post called “ How Climate Change Helped ISIS,” where they argue that a four-year drought in Syria, from 2006 through 2010, “devastated the livelihoods of 800,000 farmers and herders; and knocked two to three million people into extreme poverty.” "If more Americans knew how glacial melt contributes...
