    The "immense" rise in sales of high-emission sports utility vehicles means they now outsell electric cars in the UK by 37 to one, research has found. As a result, overall exhaust emissions from new cars have been increasing, not declining, for the past three years, says the UK Energy Research Centre. SUV sales are jeopardising the UK transport sector's ability to meet EU emissions targets, it said. Prof Jillian Anable of the UKERC said this made "a mockery" of UK policy. "Effectively, we have been sleepwalking into the issue," she said. "The decarbonisation of the passenger car market can no...
  • Hot PBS Take on Fox: 'Helping to Destroy the Planet'

    12/05/2019 8:06:25 AM PST · by rktman · 16 replies ^ | 12/5/2019 | Tim Graham
    The website of taxpayer-subsidized Boston PBS superstation WGBH posted a commentary by local professor Dan Kennedy on December 3 provocatively titled "How Fox News Is Helping Destroy the Planet." Kennedy writes a column weekly for and is a panelist on their local show Beat the Press. He began: "Want to fight climate change? Tell your elderly relatives to turn off Fox News." Kennedy cites the latest poll from the liberal Pew Research Center showing about two-thirds of U.S. adults (67%) say the federal government is doing too little to reduce the effects of climate change, and similar shares say...
  • CNN Gives UN Guest a Forum As They All Push Global Warming Alarmism

    On New Day Saturday, CNN weekend anchor Christi Paul and fill-in co-host Martin Savidge gave a forum to Dr. Inger Anderson of the UN Environment Program to give an alarmist view of the world climate's future as she predicted that global warming caused by humans would lead to catastrophic consequences in the form of increased natural disasters. At 6:25 a.m. Eastern, Savidge recalled that millions of climate activists are protesting around the world in the leadup to a Monday climate conference in Madrid. He soon noted the UN report claiming that there is currently a "climate crisis" that is approaching...

    On Saturday, Climate protestors interrupted the Yale-Harvard football game at halftime by taking the field and refusing to leave. The protest was organized by two groups, Divest Harvard and Fossil Free Yale. The crowd of protestors consisted of students, alumni, and, of course, faculty members. The protestors unfurled banners that read "Nobody Wins Yale and Harvard Are Complicit In Climate Justice," "This Is An Emergency," and another one addressed to the universities' presidents, "Our Future Demands Action Now."
  • Climate Scientists Reduced to Hiding from Climate Thuggery in Germany

    11/23/2019 6:46:20 AM PST · by rktman · 15 replies ^ | 11/22/2019 | james taylor
    More than 200 people, including dozens of scientists, are in hiding right now in Germany. I am one of them. I can tell you that I am in Munich, but I can’t tell you my hotel. I can tell you that the scientists will meet on Friday and Saturday to share scientific knowledge, but I can’t tell you where. The meeting, in which scientists will present evidence contradicting an asserted climate crisis, was scheduled to be open to the public, but fascist climate thugs have forced us into hiding. The German government, rather than protecting scientists and free speech, has...
  • Tom Steyer Explains Why Climate Change Is His 'Number One Priority'

    11/21/2019 9:53:16 AM PST · by rktman · 65 replies ^ | 11/21/2019 | Beth Baumann
    Billionaire Tom Steyer took a jab at former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) for failing to make climate change their number one legislative priority. He argued that he is the only one who has a record on this hot topic issue. "I'm the only person on this stage who will say climate [change] is the number one priority for me. Vice President Biden won't say it. Sen. Warren won't say it. It's a state of emergency and I would declare a state of emergency on day one," Steyer said. "I would use the emergency powers of...
  • VIDEO: Chef Wolfgang Puck Calls Out Hollywood Hypocrisy on Climate Change

    11/19/2019 9:16:35 AM PST · by rktman · 17 replies ^ | 11/19/2019 | Nicholas Ballasy
    Chef and restaurateur Wolfgang Puck said that "a lot people in Hollywood" who drive all-electric Teslas have questioned his use of a gasoline vehicle but they fly around in private jets that use much more fuel than his car. Martha Stewart discussed climate change at the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show on Saturday. When Puck was initially asked about Stewart's presentation, he replied, "Oh, it wasn't about her sex life?" As the audience laughed in response, Puck added, "I like all kinds of women -- see, older, younger, it's OK." Puck, who is one of the wealthiest celebrity chefs, was...

    Prince Harry lavished praise and affection on climate activist Greta Thunberg late Sunday night, saying “every family needs their Greta” as he claimed “the whole world is paying attention” to her efforts. Harry took to the stage at the OnSide Awards at the Royal Albert Hall in London to make his gushing tribute. It was his final public appearance before he and wife Meghan take a break from their Royal dutuies and fly across the Atlantic for an extended six-week holiday in America.

    Los Angeles, 2019 A.D. The weightlifter rose from the ashes of the box-office bomb. His war to get people to pay attention to him has raged for decades, but the final battle would not be fought on the silver screen. It would be fought here, in his own driveway. Today... Francesca Bacardi, Page Six: Arnold Schwarzenegger made running errands look like a military mission when he drove to the Brentwood Country Mart in a tank-like SUV. The 72-year-old “Terminator” star was spotted having a bit of trouble getting back into his Pinzgauer all-terrain vehicle, though eventually got back in before...

    You have declared yourself a leader and said that your generation will start a revolution. You have comported yourself as a credentialed adult and climate change activist who has fearlessly addressed politicians and world leaders. You have dropped out of school and declared that there isn’t any reason to attend, or any reason for you to study since there will be no future for you to inherit. You have, rather than attend your classes, been leading Friday Climate Strikes for all students in your generation across the globe. Your attendance at oil pipelines has been striking. There, you unequivocally declare...
  • Robert Redford Calls for Reversal of Climate 'Damage' Caused by Trump

    Well-known climate alarmist and retired actor/director Robert Redford continued his assault on President Trump on Friday by calling the GOP official “one unqualified authoritarian” whose “depraved indifference to the climate crisis” does not define “Americans' commitments or the character of our nation.” “The clock is ticking so loudly” that “the rest of the world can hear it,” he stated. “With enough outrage, enough action and enough voices rising together, we just might have a chance to compel a reversal of this nonsense.” His opinion article was posted on CNN's website, where Redford claimed that "millions" of people were "shocked" by...
  • Oil and Gas Workers in Canada Counter Greta Thunberg: Don’t Kill Our Jobs, We Power Your Cell Phone

    Thousands of young people who have bought into the United Nations’ and other manmade climate change believers’ prediction that the world is on the verge of extinction gathered in Alberta, Canada, on Friday to support the ongoing climate strikes launched by 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg. But this time there were counter-protesters representing the massive number of men and women who work in the country’s oil and natural gas industry, and whose jobs depend on the infrastructure that powers Canada and countries around the globe. “We care for the environment, of course we do,” a counter-protester said in a Daily...
  • Fact Check: CNN, New York Times Asked Zero Questions About Climate Change

    CLAIM: CNN and the New York Times failed to ask a single question about climate change during the fourth Democrat debate on Tuesday evening. VERDICT: True. Though CNN held a separate town hall on the subject, the moderators never brought up the issue during the debate, enraging left-wing critics on social media. Washington State governor Jay Inslee — who bowed out of the presidential race after focusing his campaign almost exclusively on the issue of climate change — took moderators to task on Tuesday evening for failing to ask a single question about climate change.
  • AOC protests Trump, Wall Street during Copenhagen conference

    It used to be that American politicians abided by a code of conduct when visiting other countries that included leaving politics at the water’s edge. That meant politicians didn’t go overseas and bash the president or America to foreign audiences. That was then … this is now. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez traveled to Copenhagen last weekend. The freshman congresswoman from New York was invited to speak during the C40 World Mayors Summit. The summit brought together mayors from around the world to discuss climate change. Apparently AOC is an internationally recognized expert on the subject now. Since she was in town anyway,...
  • 'Extinction Rebellion' protesters choose hilariously apt mode of protest on Australian beach

    Members of apocalyptic cults always are certain in the superiority of their wisdom over that of ordinary people who cannot grasp that the end is near! Their frustration over the failure of others to share their sense of doom often leads them to engage in acts that strike nonbelievers as comical. The lone fanatic walking the streets with a sign or sandwich board proclaiming "the end is near" has been a staple of mockery for generations. But when you combine pseudo-science with the human impulse to believe that doom for all attends behavior that one objects to in the age...
  • Another Newsweek Conspiracy: 'Greta Thunberg Snubbed for Nobel Peace Prize' By Big Oil

    Newsweek reporter Rosie McCall offered a conspiracy theory as to how a 16-year-old environmental activist somehow failed to win the Nobel Peace Prize this year: “Greta Thunberg Snubbed for Nobel Peace Prize by Committee Run by Norway, One of the World's Biggest Oil and Natural Gas Exporters.” This new theory comes courtesy of a magazine fresh off breaking the news that opening tanning salons in urban neighborhoods were a plot to give gay men skin cancer, or something.

    As Matt Kirwan walks through Maryland’s Blackwater National Refuge, his rubber boots begin to squish. With each step the land beneath him turns from dry ground to increasingly soggy mud. The trees around him go from tall and full of leaves or needles to short, bare and pale white. Partway out, ankle deep in water, Kirwan stops. “At this point we’ve transitioned from being in the forest, to actually being in a full-fledged marsh,” explains the Virginia Institute of Marine Science ecologist. “This ground is now too salty and too wet to support living trees.” Kirwan is standing in the...

    The kids are out of their minds. They're out in the streets, blocking traffic and dancing around like maniacs because they think the sky is falling. This is entirely the fault of the adults who refuse to tell them the truth about the weather. For decades now the young have been bombarded with climate apocalypse tales of destruction. Meanwhile, not even the climate-change kooks can get their facts straight.
  • Is Climate Change Doomsday Coming?

    In a 2005 Gallup poll asking people to identify America's biggest problem, global warming didn't even make it into the top ten concerns. Climate change adherents understood that if this lack of concern persisted, they would never achieve their goal of radically reducing fossil fuel use throughout the industrialized world. So marketing efforts to "sell" climate change to an unconcerned public ramped up, starting with Al Gore's 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth, which earned Gore an Oscar and Nobel Prize. Even though a British court ruled in 2007 that the film "make[s] a political statement and ... support[s] a political...
  • Greta Thunberg in Iowa City: U.N. Climate Action Summit a Failure

    Greta Thunberg joined a large crowd of young people skipping school in Iowa City, Iowa for a climate change protest on Friday, where she declared the recent United Nation’s action summit on climate change a flop. The summit, which ran in conjunction with the U.N.’s annual General Assembly meeting, featured Thunberg and other youth speakers. “We told world leaders to act on the science,” Thunberg, 16, said at the protest inspired by the Fridays for Future school walkout she started a little over a year ago in her homeland Sweden. “And we demanded a safe future for us and for...
