    Please note: this article was pulled down offline from Forbes. I will let you draw your own conclusions as to why. Factually, there was no justification for it. This list could be closer to 50 but let’s just stick to a handful of them. I literally live in this business every day, and I’m just so confused. 1. In a world that is apparently getting both warmer and colder because of global warming, how is it that we can increasingly rely on non-dispatchable (i.e., intermittent, usually unavailable), weather-dependent electricity from wind and solar plants to displace, not just supplement, dispatchable...

    It’s time to wake up. On Global Climate Day of Action, VICE Media Group is solely telling stories about our current climate crisis. Click here to meet young climate leaders from around the globe and learn how you can take action. In Europe, you don’t often rub shoulders with someone who doesn’t believe in climate change. Although climate change denial is alive and well in America – not least in the White House – people here mostly accept that climate change is, to some degree, happening
  • Sisters Leading the Climate Crisis Revolution

    Catholic sisters of the International Union of Superiors General (UISG) are busy gathering Sisters, momentum, ideas and commitments to protect and safeguard the planet in line with Pope Francis’ Encyclical Laudato Si’ and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The first of a series of Sister-led dialogues took place in Rome on Monday, 17 April, to challenge international organisations, governments, civil society, Vatican institutions and academia on three themes: integrating responses to climate change and biodiversity loss; integrating care for people and our planet; integrating vulnerability in leadership. The encounters, organised by the UISG initiative Sisters Advocating Globally, are in partnership...

    Warmer, wetter conditions mean tropical diseases like dengue and chikungunya are spreading, says Lara Williams for Bloomberg Opinion.When you think of dangerous animals, the ones that typically spring to mind have teeth or claws. But what about wings and a proboscis? In many countries, mosquitoes are nothing more than a nuisance. But in others, they spread tropical diseases that kill at least 700,000 people a year - more than any other animal, according to estimates from the World Health Organization (WHO). Unfortunately, they’re likely to get deadlier. As greenhouse gas emissions make our planet hotter and wetter, disease-spreading mosquitoes are...

    The federal government does not know the extent that regulations are reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, despite committing $200 billion towards the issue.Jerry DeMarco, commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, holds a press conference in Ottawa on April 20, 2023. (The Canadian Press/Sean Kilpatrick)An April 20 report released by the Commissioner of the Environment and Sustainable Development, Jerry DeMarco, indicates that Environment and Climate Change Canada does not attribute emission results to specific regulations.The federal department does not measure, or report on, the contributions of each regulation toward meeting the set target for 2030.

    On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry stated that wind and solar power will become “far more price competitive than oil and gas” if oil and gas companies see their costs rise because they “have to spend huge amounts of money for carbon capture and storage and utilization.” Kerry said, “I would say to you, Andrea, that, frankly, I’m surprised, pleasantly, on the positive side, by the amount of things that are just taking hold. We see remarkable progress on batteries and battery storage. We’re seeing the price of wind and solar...

    Despite their 2015 pledge to limit global warming by slashing carbon emissions, big countries' commitments so far still fall short of meeting the targets of the Paris Agreement, monitors say. After EU lawmakers adopted sweeping climate measures on Tuesday (Apr 18), here is a roundup of where it and other major carbon emitters stand. Many countries have committed to achieving carbon neutrality - where any remaining emissions will be sequestered or offset - by the second half of this century. But monitoring site Carbon Action Tracker (CAT) rates many of these plans as lacking in detail.

    There is a war on food.No, that is not an overstatement. It is a fact. A fact for which the evidence is so overwhelming that only a liberal could deny it.You already know about the war on beef…all meat, in fact. That’s the reasoning behind the push to normalize eating insects.There is a war on farming as well. What do you think those Dutch farmers are protesting about? The forced closures of farms, which is justified by the effects of farming on global warming.Now we are being told by the Left that it’s time to go to war against rice....

    Colorado Chamber of Commerce ^ | APRIL 14, 2023 | ED SEALOVER
    An “ambitious” climate bill that would speed up Colorado’s decarbonization efforts, incentivize the purchase of electric lawn equipment and streamline the regulation of carbon-sequestration wells passed the state Senate on a Democratic-led party-line vote Friday. Senate Bill 16, sponsored by Democratic Sen. Chris Hansen of Denver, is one of several bills trying to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that is moving through the Legislature this year, but it stands out for the breadth of sectors and activities that it could affect. An amendment made Thursday to the bill, for example, would fine utilities as much as $20,000 per day for failing...
  • Separating climate change and inequality won't work, says Biden's World Bank nominee

    President Biden's nominee to lead the World Bank says the twin global challenges of climate change and inequality need to be addressed simultaneously and cannot be separated. Ajay Banga, the former CEO of Mastercard, tells Morning Edition's Michel Martin that it will take the combined action of all stakeholders, from countries to the multilateral development banking system to the private sector to make a difference, particularly when it comes to climate change. "We don't have the time to play in silos," he says. Banga, who is 63, says the World Bank, which oversees billions of dollars in funding for developing...

  • Scientists find "unprecedented" rates of sea level rise along some U.S. coasts that's 3 times higher than global average

    Sea level rise has long been expected to be an ongoing and worsening problem for U.S. coasts, but scientists have found that some areas are experiencing "unprecedented" levels of rising seas, raising concerns about the fate of already vulnerable communities. A new study published in Nature Communications on Monday found that since 2010, sea level rise along the nation's Southeast and Gulf coasts has ramped up dramatically, hitting rates that are "unprecedented in at least 120 years." Since 2010, scientists from Tulane University have found that sea levels in those regions have increased by about half an inch every year....

    Washington Post via MSN ^ | Apr 11, 2023 | Maxine Joselow
    To science teachers attending a recent convention, the comic book about “Simon the solar-powered cat” seemed unremarkable at first. The story began with Simon, an orange-and-white cat, begging for more food in typical feline fashion. But on page five, the story took an unusual turn: A “friendly scientist” explained that Simon subsisted not on kibble, but on carbon dioxide. The scientist concluded that CO2 was a “miracle molecule” that fueled all life on Earth by helping plants turn sunlight into food..... While it is true that CO2 helps plants grow, its accumulation in the atmosphere will have net negative effects...

    Scientists have documented an abnormal and dramatic surge in sea levels along the U.S. gulf and southeastern coastlines since about 2010, raising new questions about whether New Orleans, Miami, Houston and other coastal communities might be even more at risk from rising seas than once predicted. The acceleration, while relatively short-lived so far, could have far-reaching consequences in an area of the United States that has seen massive development as the wetlands, mangroves and shorelines that once protected it are shrinking. An already vulnerable landscape that is home to millions of people is growing more vulnerable, more quickly, potentially putting...

    WASHINGTON — The Biden administration is planning some of the most stringent auto pollution limits in the world, designed to ensure that all-electric cars make up as much as 67% of new passenger vehicles sold in the country by 2032, according to two people familiar with the matter. That would represent a quantum leap for the United States — where just 5.8% of vehicles sold last year were all-electric — and would exceed President Joe Biden’s earlier ambitions to have all-electric cars account for half of those sold here by 2030. It would be the federal government’s most aggressive climate...

    While the Biden Adminstration continues to insist that the world is suffering a "climate crisis," data from the NSSTC tells a different story. Newly released weather data shows average climates worldwide have remained unchanged for about nine years.The data published by the National Space Science and Technology Center shows that there has been zero global warming since July of 2015, eight years and nine months ago.The finding undermines arguments by the Biden administration and others that rising temperatures, in large part the result of emission from fossil-burning fuels, have become an existential threat and that needs to be stopped.

    The United States and other supposedly advanced and intelligent countries are working as fast as they can to destroy companies that produce oil, coal, natural gas and all the products derived from them. They are doing it because of the predictions that these products cause temperatures to rise and massive climate damage. What the media and other pushers of radical green energy policies never show is scientific data that show a direct link between our consumption of these products and warming temperatures. Because there is none. The U.S and other countries are trying to stop allowing us to buy reasonably...
