  • FLASHBACK: In 2004, The U.S. Senate Was Warned That Climate Change is a Hoax

    We actually do not know how much carbon dioxide was in Earth’s atmosphere prior to the 1930s. Devices to reliably measure carbon dioxide in the air went through painstaking, slow, bumpy development. Instruments did not really come into their own until around 1930. Because we don’t know the carbon dioxide content of the atmosphere, climate change proponents depend upon unreliable “proxies.” They substitute gas pockets retrieved from ice core samples from deep within ancient glaciers. They hope this will tell us Earth’s ancient atmosphere and the concentration of CO2 in the air. Speculation that air pockets remain exactly the same...

    New Law Requires You To Listen To Greta Thunberg Lecture Before Purchasing GasolineOctober 7th, 2019 U.S.—A series of new bills working their way through state legislatures in New York, California, Oregon, Hawaii, and several other progressive states will require you to listen to a Greta Thunberg lecture before purchasing gasoline. Motorists will be required to watch a 20-minute lecture by the 16-year-old climate activist before they purchase gallons and gallons of harmful fossil fuels. "We want to make sure drivers are informed," said California Governor Gavin Newsom, who says he will sign the bill into law. "So we are having...

    Greta Thunberg became the poster child for climate hysteria and fraud by sailing across the Atlantic in a supposedly “zero-carbon” yacht, the Malizia II, which in fact was made out of petroleum products from stem to stern ... Malizia II, like the rest of the yachts in the Imoca 60 class, is constructed from high-tech carbon fiber composites to make it ultra light and fast. It is the ultimate play thing of the wealthy elite. These boats are made of hydrocarbons, not to mention all the energy it took to make them. Carbon fiber composites are primarily made from propane...

    A gas shortage threatens the Long Island region,” bleat six Long Island state senators, all Democrats, in a letter pleading for approval of a pipeline proposed to fix the problem — belatedly admitting that the policies they’ve long favored don’t work for their own constituents. This year, Sens. Todd Kaminsky, John Brooks, James Gaughran, Anna Kaplan, Monica Martinez and Kevin Thomas all voted for Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Green New Deal law, whose very purpose is to further crimp energy supplies, and for a $100 million hike in taxes on energy. And, as Senate GOP leader John Flanagan (their fellow Long...

    Two environmental groups are suing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in an effort to protect the dunes sagebrush lizard, also known as the sand dune lizard, under the Endangered Species Act. The Center for Biological Diversity and the Defenders of Wildlife filed a lawsuit in federal district court on Tuesday. The small lizard only lives in southeast New Mexico and west Texas. It thrives in sand dunes and shrubs called shinnery oaks. In May 2018, the groups asked Fish and Wildlife to list the species as threatened or endangered. The lawsuit argues the agency should have responded within 90...

    There have been five Category 5 hurricanes — all of which made landfall — in the Atlantic since 2016. Five. Before that, the Atlantic basin had gone eight years without one of these monster tropical cyclones. Eight. The ugly truth, according to climate scientists, is that we have no reason not to expect another Dorian. Or another Harvey. Or another Michael. We are running out of time to curb man-made impacts on climate. On Monday, the 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg told world leaders at the UN Climate Action Summit in New York, starkly: “You are failing us. But the...

    A few days ago, our small-town mayor in rural Virginia, about 45 minutes from a major nuclear power plant, announced she had received an offer from a company desiring 125 acres of town-owned woodland for a solar farm.  It made little business sense until learning of Executive Order 43, signed on Sep. 16 by Virginia's Gov. Ralph Northam.  EO-43 mandates expansion of solar energy and other renewable energy ideas like those in the Democrats' radical Green New Deal.  Perhaps he had noble intentions, but more likely, it was to regain support from his base after being weakened politically by his alleged blackface photo and...

    Reporters fawned Tuesday over 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg's response to a sarcastic tweet from President Donald Trump. "She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future," Trump tweeted after Thunberg warned the U.N. of a coming "mass extinction." She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see! https://t.co/1tQG6QcVKO — Donald J.

    [snip]"But while personalizing a movement, especially with the innocent face of a child, is usually PR gold, Greta’s ascendancy to the forefront of environmental activism could end up being a major negative to the movement – and the environment."[snip]Her story signals a clear change in environmental movement tactics, and just how much more divisive and ineffective that change is likely to be. Greta, and the adults guiding her, are seeking to shift almost all the focus from personal responsibility to governments and big corporations to enact environmental reform. Their argument is that individual people can’t do much to save the...

    The left has gone ballistic over criticism that teen climate-change activist Greta Thunberg resembles some of the Nazi propaganda that was used to turn the world against Jews more than half a century ago. The Swedish 16-year-old, who is skipping school for a year to to protest climate change, charged in a speech at the United Nations on Monday that the adults in the room were stealing her dreams and her childhood. "People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing," she claimed. "We are in the beginning of a mass extinction." Author and filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza noted her...

    Climate change activist Greta Thunberg's stare a Donald Trump as he entered the UN has become a social media meme. The Swedish eco-warrior addressed the United Nations Climate Summit in New York on Monday telling delegates 'you have stolen my dreams and my childhood'. The schoolgirl was seen at the UN headquarters yesterday morning with an enraged expression on her face as President Trump upstaged her entrance by walking in flanked by news reporters. She could be seen fiercely staring at the US president as he walked by and into the UN General Assembly. Social media instantly exploded with memes...

    Fox News announced that they do not plan on booking Michael Knowles moving forward after he called 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg "mentally ill" on the network Monday night. Knowles, who hosts The Michael Knowles Show for the Daily Wire, appeared on Fox News for a segment about climate change and Thunberg's activism. He was accompanied on the show by Chris Hahn, a former aide to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who took exception to Knowles' characterization of the teenager. Fox News no longer plans to bring Knowles on the network anymore, a spokesperson for the cable news station confirmed...

    Far-left climate extremist Greta Thunberg had a meltdown while speaking at the United Nations on Monday about climate change, claiming that the state of the world is on the verge of collapse. The Washington Examiner noted that Thunberg "has stage-parents, literally. Her mother sang opera internationally until the teenager convinced her to quit due to greenhouse gas emissions from flying, and her father and grandfather both gained fame through acting and directing." Thunberg repeatedly condemned adults by dramatically saying, "how dare you!" as she warned of a future that she suggested may not even exist due to climate change. "My...

    Happy Monday, folks. What better way to get the American people on your side than by causing their morning work commute to become an even bigger headache by forcing thousands of drivers to sit in stand still traffic. In an attempt to convince climate skeptics that climate change (formally known as global warming until a few predictions by Al Gore didn't pan out) is real, hundreds of leftist protesters are currently demonstrating in the streets of Washington, D.C. by hurling confetti, blocking traffic, and warning about carbon emissions...while at the same time causing motor vehicles to just sit there emitting...

    Hundreds of thousands of young people worldwide on Friday are participating in the Global Climate Strike as organizers say it is expected to be the biggest day of protests ever surrounding the issue of climate change. The protests kicked off in Australia, where organizers said more than 300,000 people gathered in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and other cities. Melbourne hosted the largest demonstration, with more than 100,000 climate activists attending, CNN reported the organizers as saying. The strike has been largely organized and shared by 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, who started #FridaysForFuture climate strikes on her own in August 2018...

    Climate hoaxer truant Greta Thunberg has dominated the news for the last several days, largely thanks to the fact that none of the adults around her seem to care if she gets an education. In fact, the little spectrum girl finally admitted that her antics are mostly about having an excuse to play hooky from school. Time: “Why should we study for a future that is being taken away from us. That is being sold for profit.” Last month, I wrote that scaring young people into believing that climate change is going to kill them is child abuse. The adults...

    This week marks Climate Week 2019. Climate change affects all of us, and each of us can make a difference in our own way, big or small. To show how we can take Climate Action into our own hands, a poster has been hung on the cafeteria wall. Each student and staff member can show commitment to combatting climate change by writing on the poster something they did that day or week to make a positive difference for our planet. We are aiming for 100% participation by the XYZ High School Community. Thank you for your support, and let’s make...

    Climate activists blocked major intersections in Washington, D.C. early Monday morning in a show of protest ahead of this week's United Nation's climate summit in New York City. More than 60 countries will attend the summit, which begins today, and activists are seeking to pressure U.S. lawmakers and other world leaders to create legislation that will address climate change. The protest, called Shut Down DC, is loosely associated with the Metro D.C. chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America and Black Lives Matter D.C. According to Reuters, nearly 1,150 people had signed up for the protests on a dedicated web...
