    The owners quietly refused to celebrate same-sex weddingsIn a dramatic demonstration of the power of the LGBTQI lobby, an Australian wedding magazine is closing down because its editors refuse to feature same-sex weddings. White, a glossy magazine published quarterly for 12 years by husband and wife team Luke and Carla Burrell, has been haemorrhaging advertisers since LGBTQI activists launched a campaign on social media to destroy it. White’s circulation had reached 32,000 copies and it was circulated in 17 countries. In addition to the Burrells it had one full-time employee. It depended on a network of photographers for content and...

    JUNEAU, Alaska - The Alaska transportation department is changing how it maintains roads as the state feels the effects of climate change. Alaska's Energy Desk reports climate change has made it harder and more expensive to keep up. There are issues like freezing rain and damage to roads built on thawing permafrost. Dan Schacher recalls spending $750,000 more than usual during a long stretch of winter with measureable rainfall. He says the department is changing its methods, such as using trucks to distribute a watery solution called salt brine that's meant to help with slippery pavement. The Fairbanks region was...

    We’ve all seen how powerful images can make abstract crises feel concrete. Think of the photographs of a Chinese man blocking a column of tanks a day after the Tiananmen Square massacre, a naked Vietnamese girl fleeing from napalm in 1972 or of 7-year-old Amal Hussain wasting away from hunger in Yemen. When done well, photographs help people around the world make sense of unseen disasters. Now close your eyes and try to picture climate change – one of our generation’s most pressing crises. What comes to mind? Is it smoke coming out of power plants? Solar panels? A skinny...
  • Pope decries that ‘wealthy few’ feast on what belongs to all

    Championing the cause of the poor, Pope Francis on Sunday lamented that “the wealthy few” enjoy what, “in justice, belongs to all” and said Christians cannot remain indifferent to the growing cries of the exploited and the indigent, including migrants. Francis invited about 6,000 poor people as well as some of the volunteers who help them to the splendor of St. Peter’s Basilica where he celebrated Mass on a day the Catholic Church dedicates to the needy. Later, he sat down with 1,500 of the indigent for a lunch of lasagna, chicken, mashed potatoes and tiramisu in a Vatican auditorium....
  • A Famous Science Fiction Writer's Descent Into Libertarian Madness (Robert Heinlein)

    The New Republic ^ | June 8, 2014 | By JEET HEER
    By JEET HEER June 8, 2014 The science-fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein once described himself as “a preacher with no church.” More accurately, he was a preacher with too many churches. Rare among the many intellectual gurus whose fame mushroomed in the 1960s, Heinlein was a beacon for hippies and hawks, libertarians and authoritarians, and many other contending faiths—but rarely at the same time. While America became increasingly liberal, he became increasingly right wing, and it hobbled his once-formidable imagination. His career, as a new biography inadvertently proves, is a case study in the literary perils of political extremism. MOST...

    Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday accused President Donald Trump of fomenting hate and division, citing an increase in hate crimes through the state of New York. “I think we are in a moment in time where our country and our morality as a country is literally on knife’s edge. We have a president who has blurred, even destroyed the lines between right vs. wrong. He has demonized immigrants. He has created division and hate throughout society,” she said during a speech at the National Action Network Conference. “In New York State, we have more hate crimes than we have...

    **SNIP** Watching it all from the sidelines was Pelosi, who has already called for reinstatement of the select panel that she first set more than a decade ago. Ocasio-Cortez has praised Pelosi for reinstating the special committee, even though she wants it to have far broader authority to craft legislation remaking the U.S. energy grid. “We need to act on climate change NOW w/ a *fossil fuel $-free* Select Committee *with a mandate* to draft a Green New Deal,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted earlier Thursday. “It’s our best chance to beat the clock.” Pallone declined to comment on what happened during the...

    Are the Laws of the Universe Fine-Tuned for Life? By Korey Haynes | November 12, 2018 Humans have often looked at the night sky and wondered if there’s anyone else out there. But stare into that darkness long enough, and many wonder instead: how did we get here? What were the odds, in a universe so enormous and chaotic, that humans should have come to exist at all? Is life, let alone intelligent life, such a wildly improbable occurrence that we’re the only ones here? Or are we an inevitable consequence of the laws of physics?Life exists on Earth (assuming...

    A major new climate study in the journal Nature got worldwide media coverage for finding that the oceans warmed dramatically faster than previously thought — but now the researchers have retracted that conclusion after a man in the United Kingdom blogged about flaws he discovered in the paper. Just two weeks after publication, the study authors have revised their paper, and now conclude that the oceans are warming fast -- but at the same rate as other measurements have found. A study co-author took responsibility for the error. “I accept responsibility for these oversights because it was my role to...

    Democrats have gone completely off the rails when it comes to climate change. Even if some of us believe the climate is changing (it’s been changing for millions of years in various directions) that’s not enough for the left. Democrats are only content if you support destroying entire industries, bankrupting companies, raising taxes, wasting taxpayer money, and putting climate change deniers in jail. That’s a position that’s far too radical for most people especially when you consider the fact that there is plenty of evidence suggesting the data we’ve been force fed by the left isn’t all accurate. Here’s the...

    A highly circulated study claiming oceans are warming at a much higher rate due to global warming contains "key errors," forcing researchers to issue a correction. The study published by the journal Nature on Oct. 31 by researchers at Princeton University and UC San Diego's Scripps Institution of Oceanography claimed the oceans were warming at a rate 60 percent higher than previously thought. However, a mathematical error discovered by independent climate scientist Nic Lewis after he perused the study's first page has led the journal to retract its key finding. The study has a much larger margin of error, making...

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry said "people are going to die" because of President Trump's decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement. "People are going to die because of the decision Donald Trump made," Kerry said in an interview with The Guardian published on Friday. "My kids and my grandkids are going to face a difficult world because of what Donald Trump has done." The Guardian questioned Kerry about a variety of subjects, including many he writes about in his book, "Every Day is Extra," that was released in September. In it, Kerry details the Obama...

    Eighty-five people have been arrested as thousands of demonstrators occupied five bridges in central London to voice their concern over the looming climate crisis. Protesters, including families and pensioners, began massing on five of London’s main bridges from 10am on Saturday. An hour later, all the crossings had been blocked in one of the biggest acts of peaceful civil disobedience in the UK in decades. Some people locked themselves together, while others linked arms and sang songs. By 2pm the blockade of Southwark Bridge had been abandoned and protesters moved from there to Blackfriars Bridge, where organisers said they were...

    Waste of Time: An announcement by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday that there is “tremendous pressure” to revisit “climate change” when Democrats take over control of the chamber in January proves again that the Democratic Party is not interested in actually leading. Rather, the party seems to be preparing to use the next two years ahead of the 2020 elections to engage in Left-wing activism and investigating POTUS Donald Trump. GlobalWarming and ClimateChange “was urgent in 2007. It’s more urgent now,” Pelosi told reporters at a press conference Thursday. Pelosi said she is planning to ask her lunatic...

    Our sun has been behaving very strangely, and this unusual behavior is really starting to affect our weather patterns. There have been virtually no sunspots in 2018 as solar activity has dropped to alarmingly low levels. As a result, our atmosphere has been cooling and shrinking, and experts are warning that we are heading for a bitterly, bitterly cold winter. And even though the official start of winter is well over a month away, winter weather is already sweeping the nation. As you will see below, a giant winter storm is about to slam into the east coast, but what...

    The high priests of climate change are furious over a new Canadian government report saying that the polar bear population is booming and is endangering the native Inuit peoples living in the great white north. The new study finds that the polar bear population has grown so much that they are now competing with the native Inuit people living in the area. But the report runs contrary to what envirowackos continue to say over and over again. Enviros continue to claim that the polar bears are dying out because of global warming. So, this report is infuriating pushers of climate...

    Typhus is on the rise in Los Angeles, with its epicenter in downtown, where the city’s sanitation officials are struggling to respond to the nearly two thousand “cleanup requests” they get from locals every month. Like San Francisco, LA is struggling to clean up city streets of human waste—specifically feces—due to a lack of public restrooms and a growing homeless population. There was an average of 700 requests in the area in the spring of 2016, but officials now claim they receive about 1,900 cleanup calls per month thanks to the number of growing homeless camps. But the growing homelessness...

    More than a year after the US Environmental Protection Agency took down information on climate change from its website for an “update”, it now seems uncertain whether it will ever reappear. In April last year, the EPA replaced its online climate change section with a holding page that said the content was being updated to “reflect the agency’s new direction under President Donald Trump”. Information previously found at epa.gov/climatechange made it clear that human activity was warming the planet, resulting in harm to Americans’ health as well as crucial ecosystems on which humans depend. The “update” page has now given...
