    Granted, they got here in November, close to winter. But when spring and summer came, they must have experienced some New England thunderstorms. What did they think of that?

  • Allergy sufferers feel double-hit as grass pollen and tree pollen overlap

    Allergy season typically follows a calendar: tree pollen in the early spring, grass pollen in the early summer, with a little bit of overlap, then ragweed in the fall. But now Cleveland allergy sufferers are getting a double whammy due to late spring cold temperatures and snow. Tree pollen season and grass pollen season are now on top of each other. That means for people who are allergic to both pollens, it’s double the misery: itchy eyes, nose and throat, sneezing and congestion. The Cleveland Clinic says patients are experiencing worse symptoms than normal...But for some, the misery may not...

    Filmmaker and Bernie Sanders supporter Michael Moore's new movie "Planet of the Humans" characterizes so-called green energy as just another crony capitalist scam. "We went into this project hoping to prove the superiority of green energy," Moore said. "We found out otherwise." "Consider, the solar panels needed to generate electricity are made with metallurgical coal and require 16 times more materials in the form of cement, glass, and steel than do nuclear plants, and create 300 times more waste," Moore observed. "Then there are the renewable bio-fuels that are produced using tractors that run on diesel, use water pumped by...

    Environmentalists in the media often seem to want to move the goalposts on their climate Armageddon predictions. USA Today ran a story headlined “Unsuitable for 'human life to flourish': Up to 3B will live in extreme heat by 2070, study warns” May 4, 2020. USA Today stated that “By 2070, up to 3 billion people are likely to live in climate conditions 'deemed unsuitable for human life to flourish.’” Citing a new study, USA today warned that “[w]ithout climate mitigation or migration, by 2070 a substantial part of humanity will be exposed to average annual temperatures warmer than nearly anywhere...

    Another day, another Pulitzer prize given to The Washington Post for liberal content. This time, the prize was given for the paper’s reporting on climate change. #Headdesk. The Post’s media reporter Paul Farhi flaunted the news in a story headlined “Washington Post wins Pulitzer Prize for series that detailed environmental devastation in global hot spots.”
  • Getting the balance right between freedom of thought and the disciplines we need.

    People who hate freedom were much too hard on Donald Trump for his disinfectant comment. He was wondering out loud if the corona-killing properties of disinfectants could be used medically. He could have phrased it better. But in the current climate thinking outside the square should be encouraged not ridiculed. Who agrees? Is it possible that Corona-virus is God’s way of a human cull in an over populated world? You can see a little more from me on these questions here: https://freedom-demokrasi-and-civilised-humanity.com/2020/04/29/obeying-the-law-but-staying-free-to-be-as-smart-as-we-can/

    This year, 2020, marks the fiftieth anniversary of Earth Day. When I was growing up—not that long ago I might add—Earth Day was mostly focused on community trash pickups, planting trees, and other activities meant to make the entire planet, and one’s neighborhood, more beautiful and less polluted. My, how things have changed. In recent years, it seems that Earth Day has transformed into a day less about nurturing Mother Nature and more of an occasion for angry environmentalists to point their fingers at anyone and everyone who opposes their radical agenda. According to EarthDay.org, the mission of Earth Day...

  • VIDEO MIX: Historic flooding of the Pearl River affects thousands in Jackson, Mississippi and surrounding areas

    02/18/2020 5:22:47 PM PST · by MassMinuteman · 7 replies
    Mississippi is bracing for more flooding as rising waters caused by days of heavy downpours swell rivers in the state capital of Jackson, causing fears to rise with the river amid speculation it will breach its banks and threaten thousands of homes. Governor Tate Reeves declared a state of emergency due to the “historic, unprecedented flood” that was not expected to crest before Monday. "This is a precarious situation that can turn at any moment," Reeves said at a press conference Sunday morning. "It will be days before we're out of the woods and the water starts to recede."

    Two radically different approaches for how to mitigate the potential negative impacts of climate change have been advanced recently. On the left we have The Ahuman Manifesto—a tract authored by Patricia MacCormack, a professor of continental philosophy at Anglia Ruskin University in the United Kingdom. The Professor argues for human extinction as the best solution to the perils of climate change. "My interest in feminism and queer theory led me by a process of logical deduction to the conclusion that the human race must be exterminated in order to save the planet for other species," she said. "Humankind is currently...

    The fire ravaged state of New South Wales in Australia received much-needed torrential downpours that doused active fires, reducing the total number by a third, as The Guardian reported. The number of active fires dropped from more than 60 to 42 in just one day. Authorities in New South Wales warned of flash flooding on Australia's east coast and in Sydney. However, they were happy to welcome the rain, which was the most recorded in over a year, according to Australia's Bureau of Meteorology, as the BBC reported. "It was fantastic to wake up to much-needed rain this morning!" Sydney's...

    The Democrats have done nothing in the House except pursuing Impeachment. WHERE ARE THEIR ACCOMPLISHMENTS FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE????

    Democratic presidential contender billionaire Tom Steyer promised to “declare a state of emergency on day one of my presidency in order to take the drastic steps necessary to prevent climate catastrophe. For too long we have been paralyzed by fear to act. Both Congress and the President have been unable to agree on what steps to take. Some point to the economic destruction that would result from outlawing fossil fuels. Others object to the suppression of individual freedoms we’ve become accustomed to. I will enforce the sacrifices needed to save the planet.” Among the list of “drastic actions” being contemplated...

    Zhao Yingmin, China’s Vice-Minister of Ecology and Environment, demanded that developed countries pay poor countries the $100 billion in reparations promised by the Paris Accord for the damages done by global pollution. The roster of proposed recipients of this $100 billion includes China. Ironically, China is currently spewing out more pollution than any other country. The chance for China’s demands being met seem slim since the Trump Administration has withdrawn US participation in the Paris Accord. Nevertheless, Zhao denounced “this unilateral rejection of an agreement made by his predecessor,” labeled Trump’s action “a crime against humanity,” and called efforts to...

    Now in fourth place among the Democrats vying for the Party's 2020 presidential nomination, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders hopes his $16 trillion plan to mitigate global warming will revive his flagging campaign. The gist of his plan is to expropriate private sector energy companies and use the ill-gotten gains to foster a government-owned alternative energy "ministry." The target is to have 100% of the United States energy needs met from wind, solar, hydropower or geothermal energy by the year 2030. Sanders rebuffed claims that the notorious inefficiency and ineffectiveness of government would undermine his plan, pointing out that "the expected...

    A recent study published in scientific journal BioScience says the planet needs fewer people to effectively combat climate change; arguing “population control” is necessary to limit the amount of Carbon Dioxide in the atmosphere. “A larger group of scientists is sounding another, much more urgent alarm. More than 11,000 experts from around the world are calling for a critical addition to the main strategy of dumping fossil fuels for renewable energy: there needs to be far fewer humans on the planet,” reports Bloomberg. “We declare, with more than 11,000 scientist signatories from around the world, clearly and unequivocally that planet...

    Swedish teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg says she wouldn’t want to meet with President Trump even if given the opportunity. “I don’t understand why I would do that,” Thunberg told Ellen DeGeneres in an interview that airs Friday on the “Ellen” show. “I don’t see what I could tell him that he hasn’t already heard. And I just think it would be a waste of time, really.” Thunberg was in Los Angeles Friday for a protest rally by students opposed to new fossil-fuel production. She has drawn the ire of Trump, whose administration rolled back Obama-era environmental protections and withdrew...
