    And he wrote on the tables, according to the first writing, the ten commandments, which the LORD spake unto you in the mount out of the midst of the fire in the day of the assembly: and the LORD gave them unto me. Deuteronomy 10:4 The BLM cult is getting stronger and more powerful in America. This is just a militant extension of the Eart Worshiping New Age cult which Dems have been following for decades, but this one is all consuming. For a young atheistic girl in search of purity this one is the perfect religion since it has...

    People living in Denmark will need to sort their recycling into ten different containers, under a new deal that aims to cut 0.7m tonnes of emissions and make the country’s waste sector carbon neutral by 2030. Denmark’s climate minister Dan Jørgensen said that, with the average Danish resident throwing away 800 kg of waste into general recycling a year, people in the country were worse than the European average, which is 490 kg. […] Under the agreement, which has the support of all parties except for the Danish People’s Party and the New Right Party, Denmark’s municipalities have half a...
  • On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare

    Quillette ^ | 6/30/2020 | By Michael Shellenberger
    On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem. I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30. But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as expert reviewer of its next...

    First there was Michael Moore’s Planet of the Humans, then came Bjorn Lomborg’s False Alarm, and now Michael Schellenberger’s Apocalypse Never. All three authors sound the common theme that the hyper-green environmental activists who have captured, politicized, and monetized the concern for the environment have, as Lomborg explains, created a false climate alarm which has “costs us trillions, hurts the poor, and fails to fix the planet.” To varying degrees, all three authors come from a strong environmental activist background, which observation makes their public revelations even more noteworthy. Planet of the Humans, the recent film produced by Michael Moore,...

    Britain could reach its highest levels of UV radiation due to a lack of planes, coupled with clear blue skies and sweltering temperatures — a potent combination that increases the risk of skin cancer. Ultraviolet rays, which can also cause sunburn and cataracts, are expected to reach level 9 across parts of Devon and Cornwall on what is set to be the hottest day of the year in the UK so far. The mercury hit a sweltering 90.5°F (32.5°C) on Wednesday, while temperatures today could climb even further in the Midlands and Wales. West London is forecast to see temperatures...

    BBC "News" ^ | June 20, 2020 | By Justin Rowlatt
    Greta Thunberg says the world needs to learn the lessons of coronavirus and treat climate change with similar urgency. That means the world acting "with necessary force", the Swedish climate activist says in an exclusive interview with BBC News. She doesn't think any "green recovery plan" will solve the crisis alone. And she says the world is now passing a "social tipping point" on climate and issues such as Black Lives Matter. "People are starting to realise that we cannot keep looking away from these things", says Ms Thunberg, "we cannot keep sweeping these injustices under the carpet". She says...
  • Hip and knee operations should be done under local anesthetic to help cut carbon emissions

    The Telegraph via Yahoo ^ | 6/17/2020 | Emma Gatten
    Using local instead of general anaesthetic for hip, knee and other operations could help cut greenhouse gas emissions, according to a new study. Drugs used for general anaesthetics contain greenhouse gases such as nitrous oxide, which can stay in the atmosphere for up to 114 years and contribute to global warming. Switching the one million annual hip and knee replacement operations in the United States to local anaesthetic would save the equivalent of 7.3 million miles driven in a car, according to the study, which was based on a one-year experiment at a hospital in New York and published in...

    Technology Review ^ | 6/11/20 | James Temple
    Demands for climate action have largely faded into the background as the covid-19 pandemic, the economic meltdown, and widespread protests over police brutality have seized the world’s attention. But for Rhiana Gunn-Wright, the director of climate policy at the Roosevelt Institute and one of the architects of the Green New Deal, the issues are inextricably intertwined. You can’t appreciate the real toll of the fossil-fuel sector if you’re not looking at it through the lenses of racial justice, economic inequality, and public health, she says in an interview with MIT Technology Review. People of color are more likely to live...

    The future of many climate change and renewable energy projects across the United States is in serious doubt as states slash budgets due to the fallout from the CCP virus crisis. With fiscal black holes looming and taxation and other income having been decimated, state governors look set to cut back where they can to ensure the provision of essential services. Rebates for EVs and funding for renewables such as wind and solar are at the top of the chopping list.< A prime example is California. Gov. Gavin Newsom faces a $54 billion budget shortfall due to the CCP (Chinese...

    The Trump administration gutted a key portion of the Clean Water Act on Monday, limiting states’ ability to block controversial pipeline projects that cross their waterways. The final rule from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) targets Section 401 of the law, which lets states halt pipelines that risk hurting their water quality. It’s been a target of President Trump, who last April ordered the agency to accelerate and promote the construction of pipelines and other important energy infrastructure. “Today, we are following through on President Trump’s Executive Order to curb abuses of the Clean Water Act that have held our...
  • Almonds Are Out. Dairy Is a Disaster. So What Milk Should We Drink?

    A glass of dairy milk produces almost three times more greenhouse gas than any plant-based milk. But vegan options have drawbacks of their own. For environmentally minded consumers, the news is hard to swallow: almond milk is not healthy for the planet and the popular milk substitute is especially hard on bees. Our recent investigation into the connection between California’s industrialized almond industry and a record 50bn commercial bee deaths created quite a buzz. The widely read story prompted one primary response from readers: “What should we be drinking instead?” This is a thorny question, and food sustainability experts are...

    The coronavirus pandemic has prompted the United Nations to delay until late 2021 a crucial climate summit that had been scheduled for Britain this year, officials said on Thursday. This year’s meeting, known as the COP26 summit, had been billed as the most important climate change summit since the 2015 talks that produced the Paris Agreement. Hundreds of world leaders had been expected to respond to public pressure for stronger global climate action by delivering pledges to slash greenhouse gas emissions more rapidly. The summit will be rescheduled to Nov. 1 to 12, 2021, the UN’s climate body decided, dates...

    What is it with liberal outlets and their apparent virtue-signaling obsession with eliminating meat from our diets? The New York Times published a wacky op-ed headlined “The End of Meat Is Here.” In the sub-headline, author Jonathan Safran Foer grumbled that “If you care about the working poor, about racial justice, and about climate change, you have to stop eating animals.” [Emphasis added.] Only leftists like Foer would know how to make that nonsensical connection.

Apparently Earth is losing its grip: Earth’s magnetic field, critical to all life, may be in danger from 'leaking core' Of course if you read beyond the sensational headline you will discover that not only is it leaking, “but that it has been for about 2.5 billion years.” So our task is monumental: that’s a helluva curve that needs flattening. And that’s not even the bad news: Unexplained anomaly weakening Earth’s magnetic field is EVOLVING and SPLITTING in two, warn scientists The European Space Agency (ESA) has deployed its...

    The asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs around 66 million years ago crashed into Earth at “the deadliest possible angle”, researchers have concluded. The giant impacter struck what is today Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula at around 60 degrees — maximizing the production of climate-altering greenhouse gases. The global disaster caused by the space rock — which was bigger than Mount Everest — was far worse than once thought, Imperial College London experts said. Previous studies had suggested the asteroid came in at an angle of around 30 degrees, while others concluded that it crashed almost straight down. However, the team’s computer...

    Researchers at Australian National University (ANU) have called for ‘climate change’ to be recorded as a cause of death on death certificates. They claim that in Australia, the rate of people dying as a result of global warming may be 50 times higher than is officially acknowledged. In a letter to The Lancet Planetary Health, researchers Arnagretta Hunter and Simon Quilty claim the impact of climate change is currently understated. “Climate change is the single greatest health threat that we face globally even after we recover from coronavirus. “We are successfully tracking deaths from coronavirus, but we also need healthcare...

    The novel coronavirus outbreak has starkly exposed inequalities worldwide and could set back human development for the first time since 1990, the United Nations said on Wednesday. It said the crisis had, though, revealed the strength of collective action in the face of a common threat and urged the world to show the same force on climate change. “The Covid-19 pandemic is unleashing a human development crisis,” the UN Development Programme (UNDP) said in a report. Other shocks – such as the financial crisis of 2007-2009 or the Ebola outbreak in West Africa in 2014-2016 – have dealt a blow...

    Burlington Mayor Steve Sexton accused Gov. Jay Inslee of using the economic shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to promote "his climate change agenda," in a letter written Friday. Sexton, referencing a May 13 interview Inslee had with Sen. Bernie Sanders on the effects of climate change, said he objected to Inslee's characterization of the pandemic as an opportunity to re-create the state's economy to be more environmentally friendly. In the interview, Inslee said as states take steps to rebuild their economies they should take the opportunity to reduce reliance on fossil fuels and invest in green energy. "We have...
