  • Some Democrats See Tax Reform as a Path to Taxing Carbon

    New York Times ^ | August 17, 2017 | By LISA FRIEDMAN
    With a sweeping overhaul of the tax code on the horizon, two Senate Democrats believe this is the moment to broach the third rail of climate change policy: a carbon tax. The plan by the senators, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Brian Schatz of Hawaii, to level a $49 per metric ton fee on greenhouse gas emissions is widely acknowledged as a long shot. But the lawmakers, along with climate activists and a cadre of conservative supporters, insist the tax reform is a way to create bipartisan support. The senators propose to use a portion of the estimated $2.1...

    Green Party USA ^ | August 15, 2017 | Scott McLarty, Media Director
    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party of the United States is calling for vigorous prosecution of white supremacist groups responsible for the violence, injuries, and deaths that occurred in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday, August 12. Greens said that the violence inflicted on anti-racist counter-protesters, including a car driven into a crowd that killed one person and injured more than two dozen others, was a deliberate act of domestic terrorism. The Green Party strongly condemns the white supremacists and their rally and violent actions and expressed solidarity with all those who participated in the counter-demonstrations. White supremacist and neo-Nazi organizations thrive...

    Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein tweeted out the White House phone number on Tuesday calling on her following to "prevent WWIII" by flooding the White House with phone calls and urging them to negotiate with North Korea. "Urgent. Prevent WWIII. Flood the White House switchboard now: Negotiate don't escalate with North Korea! 202-456-1414," Stein tweeted. North Korea said on Tuesday that it is examining plans for a missile strike on Guam, just after Trump said that any threat to the United States from North Korea would be met with "fire and fury." Stein also urged the president to...

    Former Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein has weighed in on North Korea’s ballistic missile tests and has a message for dictator Kim Jong-Un – It’s not you, it’s us. In a series of media appearances, Stein has come to the defense of the rogue nation insisting they are victims of American propaganda and have been “cornered” into pursuing a nuclear weapons program. “The demonization of North Korea is part of the run-up to regime change. It’s part of demonizing a government that we then want to exercise regime change on,” Stein said Sunday in an interview on MSNBC. Taken...

    Uproxx ^ | July 31, 2017 | Kimberly Ricci
    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) Throughout the 2016 election season, the wifi-hating Green Party candidate, Jill Stein, functioned mostly as a novelty, until she captured over one million votes, and we’ll never know what effect she had in swing states like Michigan and Wisconsin, although it was possibly significant. So, Stein’s resurfacing in an MSNBC interview run served as a reminder that she might have tipped the balance in some states — which is even more of a head shaker because she completely trashed the U.S. for what she called the “demonization” of Kim Jong-un’s regime in the interest of taking over: “The demonization...
  • Clinton Campaign Never Bought ‘Carbon Offsets’ To Atone For Hillary’s Private Jet Rides

    ormer Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seems to have broken her promise to run a carbon neutral campaign by purchasing credits to offset all the carbon dioxide emitted from her private jet travel. The Clinton campaign promised nearly two years ago to go carbon neutral after the former top diplomat was caught flying a private jet the same day she gave a speech on the dangers of man-made global warming. That promise remains unkept, a Daily Caller News Foundation review of federal election filings found. Clinton aides said “offsetting our carbon footprint is still an important goal for this campaign,”...
  • Lawmakers Cite Evidence Russia ‘Colludes’ With US Green Groups to Block Fracking

    Daily Signal ^ | Kevin Mooney
    Forget about allegations of Russian interference in U.S. presidential elections for a moment, or even “collusion” between Russian officials and Trump campaign operatives. The real action is in the European and U.S. energy markets, according to a letter from two Texas congressmen to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin that details what they call “a covert anti-fracking campaign” with “little or no paper trail.” Smith and Weber quote sources saying the Russian government has been colluding with environmental groups to circulate “disinformation” and “propaganda” aimed at undermining hydraulic fracturing. Commonly called fracking, the process makes it possible to access natural gas deposits....
  • Despite Paris deal, G20 countries continue ‘sweetheart deals’ for fossil fuels: report

    Washington Times ^ | Wednesday, July 5, 2017 | Ben Wolfgang
    Top environmental groups on Wednesday blasted G20 nations for failing to live up to the terms of the Paris climate accord, saying the countries are “talking out of both sides of their mouths” and perpetuating “sweetheart deals” for oil, gas, and coal companies at the same time they’re supposed to be cutting greenhouse gas emissions. The study, released by a coalition of leading green organizations, found that the nations of the G20 — which are meeting this week in Germany — spend roughly four times as much in public financing for fossil fuels than they do supporting renewable energy.

    American Thinker.com ^ | June 12, 2017 | Alex Alexiev
    What Trump repeatedly promised to do during the election campaign has been done, and America is no longer part of the Paris Agreement. Predictably, the mainstream media here and across the Atlantic have again gone totally unhinged with prophesies of doom for America, the imminent demise of the Trump administration, and the inevitable rise of Germany and Chancellor Merkel as the new leader of the free world. This may indeed be a watershed event, but not at all as the left here and there imagines it. Contrary to the fervent desires of the leftist elites, it will result not in...

    Highly recommend this 3:45 video clip!!! [excellent video clip of Ambassador Bolton explaining that the real issue about the "Paris Accord" is all about the left's efforts to enact global governance over the USA and all nations. China and India (huge emitters) would not even have to begin to consider limits before 2030, but meanwhile the international bureaucrats would get their hooks deeper into the USA and every country. President Trump says NO to the global bureaucracy.]

    It seems like Obama has taken a page out of Leonardo DiCaprio's book of “do as I say, not as I do” and took a private jet to Milan. Not only that, he had a 14 car convoy to get into the city, which also included protection from above with a helicopter.

    Uproar Over Bret Stephens Climate Column Underscores Rigidity of Thought Among Liberals Alexander Nazaryan Newsweek May 1, 2017 In the latest sign of what some see as growing rigidity of thought among American liberals, new New York Times columnist Bret Stephens has been skewered online by readers of the paper for his first column. The subject of that column was a growing rigidity of thought among American liberals. Stephens arrives at the Times from The Wall Street Journal, where he won a Pulitzer Prize in 2013 for “incisive columns on American foreign policy and domestic politics, often enlivened by a...

    Germany’s Green party has suggested drastic consequences for the US President after he ordered a temporary travel block for refugees and citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries. […] “If the USA does not immediately rescind this insane travel block for representative Omid Nouripour and other German citizens, then we should block Donald Trump’s trip to the G20 summit in Hamburg. It is not possible to have serious discussions under these circumstances,” Green party parliamentary spokesman Dieter Janecek told Handelsblatt at the weekend. Trump accepted Chancellor Angela Merkel’s invitation at the weekend to the July summit, government spokesman Steffen Seibert said....

    Associated Press ^ | Jan 22, 2017 12:27 PM EST | Cathy Bussewitz and Geoff Mulvihill
    President Donald Trump has disputed climate change, pledged a revival of coal and disparaged wind power, and his nominee to head the Energy Department was once highly skeptical of the agency’s value. What this means for states’ efforts to promote renewable energy is an open question. States that are pushing for greater reliance on wind and solar power are not quite sure what to expect as Trump takes over. Many of them depend heavily on federal renewable-energy tax credits, grants and research, much of which comes from the Energy Department. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Trump’s pick to lead the...

    Environmental groups are ready for a fight with President-elect Donald Trump. Trump’s victory in November’s presidential election was a shock to the green movement, which is now consolidating opposition to a GOP-controlled government bent on undoing President Obama’s environmental agenda. If the initial reaction was depression and despair, environmental activists now sound energized to take on Trump. "Our goal is to channel that sense of outrage into political pressure," said Jamie Henn, the co-founder of climate group 350.org.

    As with the economy, government intervention can have unintended consequences. In Europe, the push to go green actually endangered lives through noxious air pollution. London, Paris and European governments “aggressively promoted diesel vehicles,” The Washington Post reported on Dec. 20. Why? For the environment, of course. Governments used policy to steer people away from carbon-dioxide emissions and toward diesel as the better choice. But the attempt to go green backfired as nitrogen dioxide emissions from diesel vehicles are shortening lives and clogging lungs, according to the Post’s London bureau chief Griff Witte. London has become the “global leader” in nitrogen...

    2016 will go down in history as the year when the world finally saw sense. Nowhere will this be more apparent than in America’s bold and brilliant decision to elect Donald Trump who, in my view, is set fair to be one of the truly great U.S. presidents. I realise that this isn’t obvious to some people—even those who claim to be on the conservative side of the political argument. But after a recent trip to D.C. for some private briefings, both with his transition teams and with key members of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy, I came away more confident...

    Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein told Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on Wednesday that people walk around with floppy disks in order to hack and reprogram voter machines. Stein–who is attempting to launch election recount efforts in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin to contest Donald Trump’s victory–first explained the indicators that people looked for when a machine is suspected of being tampered with or having an error. “So the indicators that they look for if they want to see a machine error or a foul play or tampering, you look for a couple of indicators,” she said. “So one is close...

    Patagonia's Black Friday sales hit a record-breaking 10-million dollars... and they're donating all of it! That amount is five times more than what the outdoor clothing and gear company expected to earn, but Patagonia is keeping its promise to give away the sales it brought in on one of the biggest shopping days of the year. The 10-million dollars will go to nearly 800 environmental groups around the world. The vice president of environmental activism at Patagonia says the company came up with the idea to help bring people together after a divisive presidential election.

    CNN ^ | 11/10/16 | Eli Watkins
    either Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson nor the Green Party's Jill Stein managed to make a dent in the Electoral College, but they did post a significant enough showing in several states arguably to help elect Donald Trump. Trump won 290 Electoral College votes to 232 for Hillary Clinton, as of Wednesday evening, with Clinton topping him in the popular vote. But had the Democrats managed to capture the bulk of third-party voters in some of the closest contests -- Wisconsin (10), Pennsylvania (20), Michigan (16) and Florida (29) -- Clinton would have defeated Trump by earning 307 Electoral College...
