  • Why Is Wokeness Winning? The astonishing and continuing success of left illiberalism

    The Weekly Dish ^ | October 16, 2020 | Andrew Sullivan
    A question I’ve wrestled with this past year or so is a pretty basic one: if critical race/gender/queer theory is unfalsifiable postmodern claptrap, as I have long contended, how has it conquered so many institutions so swiftly? It’s been a staggering achievement, when you come to think of it. Critical theory was once an esoteric academic pursuit. Now it has become the core, underlying philosophy of the majority of American cultural institutions, universities, media, corporations, liberal churches, NGOs, philanthropies, and, of course, mainstream journalism. This summer felt like a psychic break from old-school liberalism, a moment when a big part...

    Now the Admin Mods may Zot me or not, but if my words are heard by just one of my FRiends it will have been worthwhile. The stock and trade of the Democrat party is to convince each other that they are smarter than you, or I. This at the core of their beliefs: they are, in their minds, simply smarter. More enlightened. Naturally, they say, a baby should wince and scream, silently, in pain, as the scissors penetrate the neck. This is the celebration of womanhood for so many sad, single lesbians and their cats. Grades in school, of...

    President Trump, whose Middle East plan is winning support from Arab nations, is gaining strong support from Muslim leaders and their followers who believe that the Democrats haven't delivered on years of promises, according to a new survey of Islamic leaders. In a shocking turnaround, 61.48% of the 109 Muslim leaders who “represent two million voters” plan to vote for Trump. That is a slight edge over their 2012 vote for Barack Obama. The survey of the leaders was done by the Washington correspondent for Aksam Gazetesi, a Turkish news site. It suggested that the Muslim leaders' support for former...

    Trump: “And impose a $4 trillion dollar tax hike… And you know what they’re going to do with it? They’re going to spend it on the Green New Deal. Conceived by the brilliant AOC plus three. A poor student with absolutely no environmental experience. They want to attack religious liberty. Drive God from the public square.

    The Hartford Courant ^ | OCTOBER 18, 2020 | Editorial
    Chances are you’ve already made up your mind about whom to vote for as we decide who’s going to be the next president of the United States. You probably are also aware there’s no way The Hartford Courant or most any other newspaper is going to endorse Republican Donald Trump for reelection. There are many reasons for that, and we’re not going to go into them in great detail here. If you are voting for Democrat Joe Biden, you know what they are. If you’re voting for Trump, you probably don’t care. But there is one issue that demands a...
  • Biggest carbon dioxide drop: Real-time data show COVID-19's massive impact on global emissions

    While the ongoing coronavirus pandemic continues to threaten millions of lives around the world, the first half of 2020 saw an unprecedented decline in CO2 emissions -- larger than during the financial crisis of 2008, the oil crisis of the 1979, or even World War II. An international team of researchers has found that in the first six months of this year, 8.8 percent less carbon dioxide was emitted than in the same period in 2019 -- a total decrease of 1551 million tonnes. The groundbreaking study not only offers a much more precise look at COVID-19's impact on global...

    President Donald Trump mocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal proposal on Friday. “She’s got a great line of bulls**t, that’s about it,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Macon, Georgia. “She knows nothing about the environment.” He noted that the Green New Deal proposed trillions of dollars of spending to reduce greenhouse gases on the planet in an effort to stop global warming “This is the craziest thing, done by AOC plus three,” he said, mocking the group of freshman Democrat members of congress that rallied to Ocasio-Cortez with far-left ideas. “These are not great academics,”...

    Mike Bloomberg's climate change group is dumping $2.5 million into the North Carolina race for lieutenant governor to support Democrat Yvonne Holley in the final stretch before the election. "Holley, when elected, will be North Carolina’s first African American Lieutenant Governor, and will serve as president of the Senate, chair of the Energy Policy Council, and will determine the fate of critical legislation," Bloomberg's Beyond Carbon Victory Fund said in a statement. The group also announced Wednesday that it is spending roughly $2 million to support Democrats running for the Arizona Corporation Commission.

    Renewable energy is cripplingly expensive, hopelessly unreliable, massacres wildlife, destroys landscapes, destabilises the grid, harms indigenous peoples, and causes climate change. But apart from that it’s great, says a meticulous review published in the scientific journal Energies by a team of Irish and U.S.-based researchers. Actually, the part about renewable energy being ‘great’ is a joke but the rest is true. The scholarly review – Energy and Climate Policy – An Evaluation of Climate Change Expenditure 2011-2018 – is probably the most thorough meta-analysis published on the so-called ‘clean energy’ sector. Its conclusion, though neutrally expressed, could scarcely be more...

    New York Times economist Paul Krugman is at it again. He’s promoting a conspiracy theory that libertarian billionaire Charles Koch wants U.S. Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett to — wait for it — destroy the planet. Sounds like Krugman may have been watching too much Star Wars. Promoting a Times article headlined, “Charles Koch’s Big Bet on Barrett,” Krugman tweeted: “This analysis got somewhat lost in the shuffle, but Charles Koch is going big for Barrett — not bc he hopes she'll destroy Roe or the ACA, but because he hopes she'll destroy the planet.”

    Climate change has spurred close to a doubling of natural disasters in the last 20 years, and world leaders are failing to prevent Earth from evolving into “an uninhabitable hell” for millions, the United Nations warned on Monday. At least 7,348 major disasters had occurred between 2000 and 2019, claiming 1.23 million lives, affecting 4.2 billion people and costing the global economy some $2.97 trillion, the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction said in a new report entitled “The Human Cost of Disasters 2000-2019.” According to the Geneva-based agency, the last two decades saw the number of disasters caused by...

    France introduces a new carbon emission tax plan that will make buyers of gas-guzzlers like Porsche and Ferrari to reconsider their purchasing decision. EU has set a target of reducing its carbon emissions from cars by 2030 and France, which already has the highest pollution tax, has decided to double it. France is drafting a law that will force buyers of big luxury gas-guzzling cars to reconsider their purchasing decision. Europe’s second-largest auto market is planning to double its levy of “malus”- or penalty tax based on the carbon emission of a car. It is set to go up to...

    232 waterspouts/funnels have been confirmed over the Great Lakes from September 28 to October 4, 2020, in the second world record waterspout outbreak of the year, according to the International Center for Waterspout Research (ICWR). From August 16 to 19, 2020, a short-lived waterspout outbreak produced 88 funnels, setting a new world record waterspout outbreak -- the first of the year. Both outbreaks were a result of Canadian cold air sweeping over the region, which made surface air prone to rise. "There were an average of 33 per day," said ICWR director Wade Szilagyi, also a meteorologist at Environment Canada....

    Pope Francis on Saturday issued an urgent call to action to defend the planet and help the poor in his second TED talk. […] “We have just a few years — scientists calculate roughly fewer than 30 — to drastically reduce the emissions of gas and the greenhouse effect in the atmosphere,” the pope said, adding that the transition needs to take into account the impact on the poor, local populations and those who work in the energy sector. He called on investors to exclude companies that do not taking into account the environment, as have many faith-based organizations already...

    Turns out wind and solar have a secret friend: Natural gas We’re at a time of deeply ambitious plans for clean energy growth. Two of the U.S.’s largest states by population, California and New York, have both mandated that power companies get fully 50 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by the year 2030. Only, there’s a problem: Because of the particular nature of clean energy sources like solar and wind, you can’t simply add them to the grid in large volumes and think that’s the end of the story. Rather, because these sources of electricity generation are “intermittent”...

    In 2007, Goodman was still using “global warming” as a term of art. Soon enough, with almost no public explanation as to why, “global warming” would yield to “climate change.” In 2013, the climate change-friendly Economist hinted at the reason for the rebranding. “Over the past 15 years air temperatures at the Earth’s surface have been flat while greenhouse-gas emissions have continued to soar.” This was a secret the media preferred to keep under wraps. Indeed, the Economist aptly titled the article, “A Sensitive Matter.” Here on Lake Erie, scientists and their media champions have much to be sensitive about....

    Many young people are leaving the Church today because Christianity has become too judgmental and alienating for them, said lifelong Methodist and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Clinton made the comment while interviewing social justice advocate and Pastor William J. Barber II of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina, last week on her “You and Me Both with Hillary Clinton” podcast. During the podcast, she argued that "black lives matter" is a “theological statement.” The Church in America, she suggested, needs to “take a hard look at itself and try to figure out how it can be a...

    Mitsch Bush backed Green New Deal, Medicare for All in failed 2018 run.. Colorado Democrat Diane Mitsch Bush has backtracked on her past support for Medicare for All and the Green New Deal in an effort to win over voters in a highly contested swing district. When Mitsch Bush ran for Colorado's Third Congressional District in 2018, she pushed for a Green New Deal and Medicare for All. Bush now condemns both policies, removing them from her current platform in order to campaign as a "pragmatic progressive" on the trail. ... The candidate employed similar rhetoric as she backed away...

By Cardinal Blase CupichThe Lakota phrase mitakuye oyasin is often used at the end of a speech by an elder. It simply means, “we are all related, we are all relatives.” It expresses an understanding of human existence as belonging to a people who share a common heritage and destiny. And, in stark contrast to radical individualism, it reminds tribal...
