    Published on Aug 12, 2019 Celebrities, activists, environmentalist organizations, the UN, government entities and sadly, even the Vatican support the theory that humans cause climate change. However, in this exclusive interview, “global warming” expert and author Marc Morano gives you hard-hitting arguments and facts that dispel the artificial fear propagated by “climate emergency” alarmists. Marc Morano talks about: #Climate #change (min 2:58) Population control (min 14:24) Global warming (min 17:12) Medieval warm period (min 19:37) Best arguments against climate change (min 33:03) The fake 97% scientific consensus (min 34:17) The Green New Deal (min 38:23) Pope Francis and Laudato Si...

    Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish climate activist who said that meeting Donald Trump during her upcoming visit to America would be a “waste,” is not quite as pure as she thinks. Much has been made of the fact that Thunberg will be traveling to the U.S. via a “zero-carbon” high-tech racing yacht instead of flying. The teen, who has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize(!), is heading to New York for a U.N. summit on the climate. When asked if she would meet with the president, she answered, “Why should I waste time talking to him when he, of...
  • The War Against Meat: Climate Hysterics Push Cigarette-style “Sin Tax” on Red Meat

    08/14/2019 1:42:34 PM PDT · by Red Badger · 34 replies ^ | Wednesday, 14 August 2019 | Written by James Murphy
    Because the agricultural industry is considered both cruel to animals and a menace to the climate, some European nations — most notably Germany — are considering levying a so-called “sin tax,” similar to taxes on cigarettes and alcohol, on red meat. Proponents believe the tax will encourage more people to switch to poultry and plant-based proteins. Environmentalists, animal-rights activists and climate hysterics have been pushing the idea for a few years, but now, at least in Western Europe, some governments are seriously considering taxing consumers for the privilege of purchasing red meat. A report by Fitch Solutions Macro Research, a...

    Six New Icebreakers To Be Built For Canadian Coast Guard By: Xavier Vavasseur August 13, 2019 10:54 AM The Canadian Coast Guard will be procuring six new program icebreakers to replace its current aging fleet of icebreakers. The announcement was made on Aug. 2 by Canada’s Minister for Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, Jonathan Wilkinson. Minister Wilkinson also announced that the Government of Canada is officially launching a competitive process, through an Invitation to Qualify, to add a third Canadian shipyard as a strategic partner under the National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS). This new shipyard will build the new...

    While most Americans are spending time this summer enjoying the sun in the comfort of their houses’ yards, the New York Times is out with a new exposé on how lawn care is problematic, once viewed through the lens of social justice. Lawns are contributing to pollution and climate change, asserts narrator David Botti, and their origins are far from woke, in a seven-minute video on the history of American lawns. Botti says lawns are part of the “colonizing of America,” which transformed the landscape from “pristine wilderness” to “identical rows of manicured nature.” “These lawns come on the backs...

    Reuters ^ | August 8, 2019 | by Nina Chestney, Stephanie Nebehay (D-Reuters)
    LONDON/GENEVA - Global meat consumption must fall to curb global warming, reduce growing strains on land and water and improve food security, health and biodiversity, a United Nations report on the effects of climate change concluded. Although the report stopped short of explicitly advocating going meat free, it called for big changes to farming and eating habits to limit the impact of population growth and changing consumption patterns on stretched land and water resources. “There are certain kinds of diets that have a lower carbon footprint and put less pressure on land,” Jim Skea, professor at London’s Imperial College, said...

    The Houston Chronicle ^ | August 9, 2019 | by Rebecca Hennes
    Temperatures in Houston reached 100 degrees for the first time in 2019 this week, according to data from the National Weather Service. But according to a new study, 100-degree weather could soon become a much more common forecast for Houston and cities nationwide if no action is taken to address climate change. According to a July 2019 report from the national nonprofit The Union of Concerned Scientists, cities nationwide could see more "dangerously hot" days as early as 2036. The report analyzed four different heat index thresholds - above 90°F, above 100°F, above 105°F and "off the charts" - to...

    Judicial Watch ^ | August 8, 2019
    A new government-funded study takes an indirect jab at President Trump for pulling out of a costly and dubious global climate accord signed by Obama and chastises the U.S. military for not possessing an “environmentally conscious mindset.” It also claims the Department of Defense (DOD) is “precariously underprepared” for the national security implications of climate change. A lengthy report published by the United States Army War College essentially blasts the DOD—and the president—for ignoring the threats that climate change poses to national security. The distinguished authors, which include Army and Air Force colonels, an Ivy League professor and other highly...

    Anyone here believe that global warming zealots want to stop at 19%?Currently meat has reduced tax rate of 7 per cent but politicians say it should increase to 19.~~SNIP~~Germany could introduce a “meat tax” to protect the climate and improve animal welfare. Currently meat in the country has a reduced tax rate of seven per cent but the Social Democrat party and the Greens are arguing that this should increase to the standard 19 per cent, with additional revenue spent on improving animal welfare. “I am in favour of abolishing the VAT reduction for meat and earmarking it for more...

    ‘Our preferential option for the poor pushes us to prioritize the most affected ‘poorest of the poor’ who cry to God for justice.’Catholic bishops are ringing alarm bells about the future of the country’s environment in a major pastoral letter condemning “the continuing destruction of our common home”. The statement was released July 16, 2019, by the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, calling for “ecological conversion” amid “climate emergency”. The 9-page document is divided into eight sections, with the first half offering a reflection on the state of the environment, followed by concrete ecological actions. Following Laudato Si’, the...

    RUSH: Climate change was a big, big deal last night. I want to go back to January 7, 1992. This is in the days before Fox News, before cable news became something other than CNN. It’s really before massive amounts of conservative talk radio existed. So this is back in the days where I used to be invited on shows like PBS Charlie Rose and so forth, ’cause I was the only national conservative voice they could bring on to try to expose as a kook or humiliate or what have you. Those days are over now. But the reason...

    DETROIT — Andrew Yang says it’s already too late to stop climate change, and that it’s time for Americans to head for the hills. Yang, debating his fellow Democrats on Wednesday night in Detroit, had this to say when the subject of climate change was in full swing. Yang — a long-shot candidate — is best known for his universal basic income proposal: he has put a $1,000-a-month payout at the forefront of his platform. **SNIP** Yang said the U.S. acts like it controls 100% of global emissions itself, and that, “the truth is even if we were to curb...

    The Atlantic ^ | August 1, 2019 | by ROBINSON MEYER
    A few years ago, Mark Carney, a former Goldman Sachs director who now leads the Bank of England, sounded a warning. Global warming, he said, could send the world economy spiraling into another 2008-like crisis. He called for central banks to act aggressively and immediately to reduce the risk of climate-related catastrophe, taking the warming planet as seriously as they would a cooling economy. Adam Tooze, a history professor at Columbia University, knows quite a bit about central banks - and the Great Recession. Last year he published Crashed, an award-winning account of the 2008 collapse and its aftermath. Now,...

    Vice ^ | 7/31/19 | Shayla Love
    **SNIP** In a recent study in Nature Climate Change, Danielle Lawson, a postdoctoral student at NC State University, and her colleagues found that putting middle-school children in a class about climate change could influence their parent’s views on the subject. The effects were the strongest on conservative fathers—significant because conservative white men have been previously shown to have the lowest levels of climate concern. Lawson called this a case of "intergenerational learning," or the transfer of behavior and knowledge from children to parents. She thinks their study was successful partially because ideology and political identity have become so conflated with...

As a result, academic institutions think that both teachers and professors can be justly terminated if they do not teach it as fact.

    A-listers flock to Google summit in private jets, mega yachts to talk climate change The world’s rich and famous have flocked to a posh Italian resort to talk about saving Mother Earth — but they sure are punishing her in the process. The billionaire creators of Google have invited a who’s who of A-list names— including former President Barack Obama, Prince Harry, Leonardo DiCaprio and Katy Perry — to the Sicilian seaside for a mega-party they’ve dubbed Google Camp. The three-day event will focus on fighting climate change — though it’s unknown how much time the attendees will spend discussing...
  • 97% of climate scientists agree that we only have 18 months to save their jobs

    An international body of nearly 100 climate scientists convened by the United Nations have issued a stern warning to the rest of the world. Unless governments around the globe undertake “unprecedented” action to reverse it, 97 percent of climate scientists will lose their jobs. In short, the scientists say the world has only eighteen months to tackle climate change to avoid some serious unemployment in the climate science industry. “If we can’t convince people that the world is ending soon due to climate change and thus secure funding for more studies about how the world is ending,” said climatologist Peter...

    Teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg plans to take her message to the United States - but instead of flying, she's going to set sail across the Atlantic after shunning planes. The Swedish teenager, who inspired tens of thousands of school students across the world to skip class for a day to protest for faster action against climate change, said she spent months trying to figure out how to travel to the US without flying on a plane. She said she has ruled out using them due to their high greenhouse gas emissions. The 16-year-old tweeted that she plans to...
  • Greta Thunberg Is Sailing Carbon-Free to UN Climate Summit But What About Youth Activists of Color?

    Youth activist Greta Thunberg is hopping on a carbon-free racing boat to make the United Nations Climate Summit in New York on September 23. The Swedish founder of Fridays for Future—a now-global effort where youth skip school on Fridays to protest in the name of climate change and their future—figured out how to make it to the United States without destroying the planet. She’s headed to New York, which is cool. But what about other youth activists, especially those in the Global South? Thunberg’s success—while rightly deserved—is also a reminder of how our efforts to stop climate change continue to...
