  • Environmentalists: The World Could Use A Good Pandemic Or War

    Townhall.com ^ | October 30, 2014 | Derek Hunter
    In the late 1960s through the 1970s, there was a panic that the Earth’s population, if not controlled, would lead to mass food shortages, water shortages, death, wars and the end of civilization as it existed. But much like the “global cooling” movement during the same period, it was proven to be horribly, horribly wrong. The book “The Population Bomb,” published in 1968, warned that by the 1980s there would be massive upheaval and starvation because of overpopulation. The 80s came and went, and even though the Earth’s population has nearly doubled, from 4 billion in 1974 to 7 billion...

    In order to express her worries about our collective failure to act on the climate change threat, Harvard science historian Naomi Oreskes turned to science fiction. Her book, "The Collapse of Western Civilization: A View From the Future", is written from the point of view of a future historian who chronicles how humans ignored many clear warnings about the adverse effects of rising temperature, resulting in The Great Collapse of 2093. The details of that collapse include "floods, droughts, mass migrations, [and] the end of humanity in Africa and Australia." Oreskes began her efforts by chronicling the real scientific consensus...

    This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “noble” cause corruption. Documentation follows. From IceAgeNow - the American EPA has stunned observers, with a list of inert additives for pesticide formulations they intend to ban, which includes the noble gas Argon. Its hard to imagine a more inoffensive substance than Argon. As a noble gas, Argon is chemically inert – it participates in no chemical reactions whatsoever, except under exotic conditions – there are no known chemical compounds which can survive at room temperature which include Argon. Argon is not a greenhouse gas. But Argon is incredibly useful to...

    Climate change is a threat to all of humanity, as it is to all non-human species. Climate change is a threat to all the elements of creation—water, soil, air—which allow for humans to live and to thrive. Climate change is a threat to everything on the planet, and the window of opportunity to respond is rapidly running out. Yet, strangely enough, the threat of climate change is not equally distributed. Some of us, apparently, have more to fear than others. According to a sociological study, “Cool Dudes: The Denial of Climate Change Among Conservative White Males in the United States,”...

    The climate change movement has gained such unstoppable momentum in the past decade that it comes as a surprise when anyone prominent has the guts to stand up against it. It is even more surprising when that someone is the co-founder of the Weather Channel. John Coleman, though, has decided that the theory of man-made global warming is no longer scientifically viable. Having closely studied the topic of climate change for years, Coleman insists that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has it all wrong. “There is no significant man-made global warming at this time, there has been none in...

Guy McPherson, who left academia in 2009 for “ethical reasons,” says humanity will be extinct by 2030 no matter what we do, so for the sake of the other species on Earth, we must “terminate industrial civilization” and abandon the modern technology that gives us electricity, worldwide mobility, clean drinking water, and medical care; to say nothing of the creature comforts of modern life. “I think...

A memo circulated among five of the nation’s top environmental organizations, and provided to The Hill, summarizes in detail the plan hatched by the groups to put climate change on...

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...

"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."

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.

"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.

    In early 2008, candidate Obama told the San Francisco Chronicle that "under my plan ... electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." Obama was referring to his plan to cap greenhouse-gas emissions, which would, among other things, effectively choke off coal as an energy source. He was just as fond of high gasoline prices, telling CNBC in June 2008 — as gas prices shot up to $4 a gallon — that he "would have preferred a gradual adjustment." Six years later, and Obama has succeeded.

Visiting the Howard Stern Show for a long-awaited interview, Young slammed both Democrats and Republicans for ignoring the plight of the planet, suggesting that environmental damage from the "carbon footprint" of the U.S. military was a greater threat than Islamic terror in the Mideast. The relevant portion of the interview (excerpted by Canada's Sun News) begins at 50:14 in the video below: (VIDEO-AT-LINK)YOUNG: The things that we don't know, you know, we can...

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel announced a new Climate Change Adaptation Roadmap at the Conference of Defense Ministers of the Americas in Peru today, saying the Pentagon has “nearly completed a baseline survey to assess the vulnerability” due to global warming of more than 7,000 bases, installations, and other facilities.The 20-page document details three “broad adaptation goals”: “Identify and assess the effects of climate change on the Deparment,” “integrate climate change considerations across the Department and manage associated risks,” and “collaborate with internal and external stakeholders on climate change challenges.”“Initial analysis indicates that four primary climate change phenomena are likely...

    The FBI is looking for a man who lives in the San Francisco apartment where agents found a large stash of what appears to be the deadly poison ricin. On Saturday, FBI agents searched the apartment, which belongs to Ryan Chamberlain, according to KGO, an ABC affiliate. The FBI said Chamberlain could be armed and dangerous. The apartment search was expected to resume Sunday. Chamberlain owns a Nissan that reportedly could be rigged with explosives. The FBI did not evacuate apartments during the search, and FBI spokeswoman Alice Heller said there was “no threat to public safety.” She said agents...

    Reprieve Of Destruction: Global warming can’t just “pause” by Daniel Clark A funny thing happened on the way to global annihilation. The destruction of the earth by manmade carbon dioxide emissions has taken a “hiatus,” as the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change calls it, in spite of the fact that global CO2 emissions continue to rise. Depending on the source, “the pause” has gone on for the past 16 years or longer. Since last year’s IPCC report came out, defenders of the global warming faith have been groping for explanations for the pause, while also maintaining that it’s not...

    The Pentagon released a report Monday asserting decisively that climate change poses an immediate threat to national security, with increased risks from terrorism, infectious disease, global poverty and food shortages. It also predicted rising demand for military disaster response as extreme weather creates more global humanitarian crises. The report lays out a road map for how the military will adapt to rising sea levels, more violent storms and widespread droughts. 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...

    Scientists and others on a team assembled by the Chicago-based Heartland Institute, which focuses on free-market solutions to today’s problems, say the “scare” of global warming from the use of carbon fuels and other human activities “is over.” It’s “past time” for the world to realize that and “stop the madness of wasting great sums of money on EPA’s imaginary threat,” contends Kenneth Haapala, the executive vice president of the Science and Environmental Policy Project at the Heartland Institute. Institute experts said Thursday the Remote Sensing Systems, which provide data to NASA, NOAA and the National Science Foundation, have confirmed...

    "Life as you know it on Earth ends" if climate change skeptics are wrong, Sec. of State John Kerry declared Thursday. But, even if climate alarmists are wrong, nothing bad can come of enacting their taxes, restrictions and regulations, Kerry said in a speech at the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center:I'd just say to all of you here that people need to feel the pressure from you. You all know what politics is about. I'm not in it now, but I'm dependent on it to help make the right decisions so that we move in the right direction. A clean energy...
