    New York City and others lit buildings up in green Thursday night to show support for the Paris climate accord following President Donald Trump’s announcement that the United States will withdraw from the agreement. “City Hall shines green tonight because New York City will honor the goals of the #ParisAgreement,” Mayor Bill de Blasio wrote in a tweet Thursday. The mayor had previously committed to honoring the accord in the city, despite Trump’s decision. Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo, who directed One World Trade Center (also known as the Freedom Tower) and the Kosciuszko Bridge to be lit green, also committed...

That support was buttressed by several city monuments and landmarks around the world, which lit up in green as an expression of support for the Paris climate diplomacy.

    A black Texas congressman said Saturday that he’s been threatened with lynching by callers infuriated over him seeking impeachment of President Donald Trump. U.S. Rep. Al Green held a town hall meeting and played recordings of several threatening voicemails left at his offices in Houston and Washington, the Houston Chronicle reports . The seven-term Democrat told the crowd of about 100 people that he won’t be deterred. […] One male caller used a racial insult and threatened Green with “hanging from a tree” if he pursues impeachment. Another man left a message saying Green would be the one impeached after...

    President Donald Trump's choice for Army secretary announced Friday that he is withdrawing his name from consideration. "It is with deep regret today I am withdrawing my nomination to be the Secretary of the Army," Mark Green said in a statement. On Tuesday, CNN reported that the nomination was in serious jeopardy, and he could be withdrawing as soon as this week, three sources familiar with the matter told CNN. The decision by Green, Trump's second pick for the post, came after his nomination ran into trouble following a backlash after past controversial statements on LGBT issues, Islam and evolution...

    A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. The Energy Transitions Commission’s (ETC) report claims “additional investments of around $300-$600 billion per annum do not pose a major macroeconomic challenge,” which they say will help the world meet the goals laid out in the Paris agreement. ETC is made up of energy executives, activist leaders and investment bankers, including former Vice President Al Gore, who would no doubt...

    A new report claims policies to keep future global warming to internationally agreed upon limits by the end of the century could make the world $19 trillion richer. The report by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) was one of two commissioned by the German government to help convince President Donald Trump to stay in the Paris agreement. If IRENA’s top-line findings sound too good to be true, that’s because they might be. The world would have to put $145 trillion into low-carbon energy to become $19 trillion richer by 2050 — a 13 percent return on investment over 33...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. -- A Green Party-backed campaign changed its strategy to force a statewide recount of Pennsylvania’s Nov. 8 presidential election, won by Republican Donald Trump, and said late Saturday night that it will seek help in the federal courts, rather than the state courts. The announcement that it would seek an emergency federal court order on Monday for a recount came hours after it dropped a case in the state courts. “Make no mistake - the Stein campaign will continue to fight for a statewide recount in Pennsylvania,” recount campaign lawyer Jonathan Abady said in a statement issued around...

    WASHINGTON, United States — Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein dropped her efforts Saturday to request a vote recount in Pennsylvania, one of three battleground states won by Donald Trump where she is challenging the results. “Petitioners are regular citizens of ordinary means. They cannot afford to post the $1,000,000 bond required by the court,” read a filing submitted in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania. On Twitter, she later added: “#Recount2016 is so expensive because of elected leaders who have refused to invest in a 21st-century voting system.”

    he Green Party is dropping its lawsuit to request a statewide recount of the election results in Pennsylvania. The Associated Press reported on Saturday that the party said it could not come up with a $1 million bond payment required by the court by Monday, when a hearing was scheduled. A court order filed Saturday called the matter "closed" after it said that petitioners had filed to withdraw the case. The Green Party had questioned whether voting machines had been hacked or manipulated

    I went to our yearly HOA meeting last night. Some consultant with GBM Associates in Bryant, AR said that he is proposing a "Neighborhood mitigation bank" where we buy "credits" for letting the Corps of Engineers (COE) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) get deeded our "wetlands", which are really 2 creeks, and dry tributaries. The consultant was honest. He said, no federal law dictates it, just a 1983 guidance. NO promises of making money, no guarantees that COE/EPA will do anything. Fines are possibe, like if my kid catches crawfish, or throws rocks in the lake/stream. Anyways, my wife and...

    The latest batch of WikiLeaks emails included a leaked 2008 dispatch from then Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm promoting herself as a candidate for President Barack Obama’s secretary of energy. Granholm would have had to resign as governor midway through her final term had she landed the job. Granholm attached a 12,000-word document describing what she considered her qualifications in an email to John Podesta, who was heading President Obama’s transition team. The list of accomplishments was heavy on corporate welfare programs Granholm had championed. In one section of her pitch, the Democratic former governor wrote extensively about three companies that...
  • EPA Expands Power by Calling Plowed Farm Fields 'Mini Mountain Ranges'

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 10/15/2016 | Tom Gantert
    When farmers plow their land, it produces grooves called "furrows," bordered by small ridges of dirt. But in pursuit of new regulatory powers, federal agencies refer to the little dirt mounds by another term: “mini mountain ranges.” That seemingly absurd distinction is being used to impose more federal control over private land use decisions made by U.S. farmers. That was the claim described in a U.S. Senate committee report released Sept. 20. The committee reviewed the powers held by the nation’s two largest environmental regulation agencies, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Environmental Protection Agency, and a proposed...

    Back in 2010, deep green environmentalist Rick Smith, then head of Environmental Defence Canada, hailed Ontario’s Green Energy and Green Economy Act regime as a cost-free operation that would catapult the province into the big leagues of renewable energy. Through fat subsidies and high prices offered to wind, solar and other renewable industry players, jobs and growth would boom and Ontario would be free of its dirty coal plants. It was the End of Coal, the government said. The birth of a renewable miracle. Asked whether the plan might lead to higher prices for consumers, “No,” said Dr. Smith —...

    Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein will not be on the presidential debate stage for the first contest sponsored by the Commission on President Debates. Johnson and Stein both fell short of the 15 percent polling threshold required to participate, the commission said in a statement, adding that Trump and Clinton will face off on September 26 and their running mates, Tim Kaine and Mike Pence, will debate on October 4. Johnson in particular was pushing hard for inclusion in the debates, as he’d polled in the double digits across several national surveys, and previously...

    We can be sure that – if Jill Stein starts creeping upward in the polls – the mainstream media will knock her down to protect Hillary Clinton and keep her from reaching the 15% threshold required to participate in debates. To the pundits and journalists in America's news establishment, electing Hillary Clinton has become a righteous duty. In their minds, Donald Trump is the greatest evil threatening the American way of life, while Hillary Clinton represents a progressive step forward to a new milestone in American history. If you think America's mainstream news media is one-sided, corrupt and biased by...
