    The White House on Friday downplayed the ramifications of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.) announcing that she will leave the Democratic Party and officially register as an independent days after Democrats had secured a 51-49 majority in the Senate. “We understand that her decision to register as an independent in Arizona does not change the new Democratic majority control of the Senate, and we have every reason to expect that we will continue to work successfully with her,” press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement. Jean-Pierre praised Sinema as a “key partner on some of the historic legislation President Biden...

    The Biden administration will pay $75 in relocation costs to three Native American tribes whose homes are threatened by climate change, the Interior Department announced Wednesday. The Interior Department will provide $25 million each to Washington State’s Quinault Indian Nation and Alaska’s Newtok Village and Native Village of Napakiak. The Alaska communities are the site of severe erosion, which is projected to destroy critical infrastructure in Napakiak by 2030 and within the next four years in Newtok. Napakiak currently loses between 25-50 feet a year to erosion, according to DOI projections. The Quinault Indian Nation is located where the Quinault...

    ROME — U.N. General Secretary António Guterres warned Thursday that the world is headed for a “global catastrophe” thanks to manmade climate change. “Droughts, floods, storms, and wildfires are devastating lives and livelihoods across the globe,” declared the U.N. chief, adopting some of his most alarmist rhetoric to date. “Loss and damage from the climate emergency is getting worse by the day.” In a video circulating on social media, Guterres lamented that “global and national climate commitments are falling pitifully short” while asserting that the “window to limit global temperature rise to 1.5° is closing fast.”
  • Bodies of water all over North America are drying up due to drought, climate change: Experts

    Bodies of water all over North America are drying up as a result of drought and a decrease in precipitation, experts told ABC News. Earlier this year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted that the 22-year megadrought affecting the West would not only intensify but also move eastward. That prediction appears to be coming into fruition, with about 82% of the continental U.S. currently showing conditions between abnormally dry and exceptional drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.+ And while the U.S. and North America continue to witness water levels dropping in crucial rivers, lakes and reservoirs, a mixture...

    Climate change isn’t viewed as a major contributing factor for high prices right now, but as severe weather events increase in frequency and devastate industries that contribute to the U.S. economy, experts warn it increasingly will be if temperatures keep rising. Severe weather events, like hurricanes, wildfires and droughts, devastate entire communities while costing billions to rebuild. It also affects industry, from energy to transportation and agriculture, leading to a significant rise in food costs for millions. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said last week while speaking in North Carolina that climate change can manifest itself in “acute, weather-related supply shocks,”...

    Governor Roy Cooper (D-NC) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” said his state has a “front row seat” to climate change while discussing the aftermath of Hurricane Ian. Anchor Chuck Todd asked, “Let’s talk about rebuilding from his disasters. North Carolina has had to do it, Florida has had to do it quite a few times. Is it time to put more strings when it comes to rebuilding so that every dollar that’s spent is done for resiliency, so that it’s better for the next time and who should pay for that?” Cooper said, “North Carolina has had a...

    More than half of adults surveyed worldwide said that climate change has already had a severe impact on their lives, a World Economic Forum-Ipsos poll released Thursday revealed. In 34 countries across six continents, 56 percent of the more than 23,500 adults polled responded that they felt such effects. More than a third said they expect to be forced from their homes by climate change within 25 years, while 71 percent agreed that climate change would have somewhat or very severe impacts on their countries within the next decade, according to the survey. “We are in a climate crisis,” Gim...

    Populist Sweden Democrats leader Jimmie Akesson declared victory for the four-party bloc. He said his party would be “a constructive and driving force” in the work of rebuilding safety in Sweden.He said it was “time to put Sweden first.”The bloc that includes the Sweden Democrats — the country’s second-largest party — won a thin majority in parliament. Though a few votes were outstanding they were not enough to sway the final outcome. While Andersson is personally popular, anxiety in Sweden has grown over high crime rates in segregated districts that are home to large numbers of immigrants who have failed...

    Prominent scientist backs up claim that there is 'no climate emergency' ... Patrick Moore, one of the founders of Greenpeace said in an email obtained by The Epoch Times that his reasons for leaving Greenpeace were very clear: “Greenpeace was ‘hijacked’ by the political left when they realized there was money and power in the environmental movement. [Left-leaning] political activists in North America and Europe changed Greenpeace from a science-based organization to a political fundraising organization,” Moore said. Moore left Greenpeace in 1986, 15 years after he co-founded the organization. “The ‘environmental’ movement has become more of a political movement...

    An analysis by National Review shows an unseemly trend among 20 Major League Baseball teams supporting organizations that perform sex change operations on children. The magazine reviewed the causes and organizations to which these teams are handing out millions of dollars in donations and found that many support sex-change surgery, hormone treatments, and other dangerous procedures for “transitioning” teens and pre-teens.

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher praised the climate provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act but noted that climate activists have “thrown around these numbers forever.” And said that back in the 1990s “we were already going to die” if numbers reached levels they’ve already reached. Maher began by saying that President Joe Biden “just signed the biggest climate bill ever. Finally, we’re doing something about climate.”

    Kylie Jenner is a lot of things: a reality star, a makeup icon, a businesswoman, a billionaire and now, apparently, a “climate criminal.” “The Kardashians” star hit some rough air for taking her private jet on a 17-minute flight from Camarillo, Calif., to Van Nuys, Calif., last Tuesday. The roughly 40-mile jaunt could have taken about 45 minutes by car — or more, depending on L.A. traffic. The turbulent statistics about her air travel were compiled by @CelebJets, a celebrity jet tracker on Twitter, which posted about Jenner’s route from Ventura County to L.A. County. (An initial post sparked the...

    For the first time, NATO is updating its strategic plans to treat climate change as a major threat. In documents published yesterday as allied leaders gathered in Madrid, NATO declared that the 30-member alliance — which soon will include Finland and Sweden — aspires to become the “leading international organisation” on climate security, including the need to curb greenhouse gases. Rising temperatures will threaten global stability, the alliance warned, and also degrade militaries’ capabilities to fight wars and respond to disasters. “Climate change is a defining challenge of our time, with a profound impact on Allied security,” NATO wrote in...

    FIERCE COLD SWEEPS ANTARCTICA, DRIVES THE CONTINENT 4.4C BELOW 1979-2000 AVERAGE.. Not that the MSM cares, but Antarctica has suffered a fiercely cold last 18-or-so months — cold that is refusing to abate. According to the official data, yet contrary to the mainstream’s ‘heat induced catastrophe’ narrative, between April and September 2021, the South Pole’s temperature averaged a penguin-hugging -61.1C (-78F). Simply put, this was the locale’s coldest six month spell ever recorded, one that comfortably usurped the South Pole’s previous coldest ‘coreless winter‘ on record, the -60.6C (-77F) from 1976 (solar minimum of weak cycle 20). ...

(5/24/22) The Naming Commission is expected to make the announcement at 2 p.m. and answer questions. Fort Bragg is named for Gen.
