  • Americans Supposedly Just Voted For Only Electric Vehicles

    The election of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and their ultra-progressive cabinet will hasten the death of the internal combustion engine in the United States, despite the nearly even party split in the House and Senate. They will just take their narrow victory as a license to implement all manner of decisions in the name of saving the planet. Or so we’re told. And maybe they’re right. President-elect Biden has promised his $2-trillion “climate change” plan will include “rigorous new fuel economy standards aimed at ensuring that 100% of new sales for light- and medium-duty vehicles will be zero emission vehicles...
  • Democrats Block Motion to Preserve Budgetary Restraint on Green New Deal, Climate Proposals

    House Democrats blocked a motion Monday that would have preserved a long-standing budgetary restraint on excessive government spending. Democrats eliminated the restraint for climate change proposals such as the Green New Deal. Rep. Jason Smith (R-MO), the House Budget Committee ranking member, offered a motion to commit on the Democrats’ rules package for the 117th Congress. The motion to commit would strike the Democrats’ provision that creates an exemption for climate-related legislation for the pay-as-you-go (PAYGO) restriction on spending. PAYGO mandates that new spending is either offset by a “payfor” such as tax increases or spending cuts. Democrats blocked the...

    Former Secretary of State John Kerry has a long and notable track record of being a global warming alarmist and now a climate change catastrophist. He authored many failed bills in the Senate that tried to impose carbon taxes on primary energy sources like oil, natural gas and coal, which provide 80 percent of the world's energy. All the while, Mr. Kerry flies around the world in his wife's private jet living the lifestyle he publicly says is destroying the planet. This is the man President-elect Joe Biden has selected to be his climate czar and shape Biden's climate policy.

    The government will help farmers mitigate climate change by paying them to “put their land in conservation” and plant cover crops, said President-elect Biden, providing some details on his campaign call to offset greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture. The sector accounts for roughly 10% of emissions nationwide.

    Article II, Section 2 of the US Constitution is simple and direct: “The President ... shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur.” It served America well for 225 years. Then, in 2015, the UN’s “international community” of climate activists gathered in Paris to hammer out language requiring that developed nations slash their fossil fuel use, tighten greenhouse gas emission targets every five years, and become “carbon neutral” within a few decades – to prevent a manmade climate chaos forecast by computer models but not...

    Nature is determined to destroy humanity through flood, famine, fire, and pestilence, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres declared Wednesday, prophesizing the time has come for us to repent and mend our ways through a great climate and economic reset. In an address at Columbia University in New York City, Guterres said the global climate has long been “reacting” to man-made changes, but emphasized there’s still time to prevent a total biodiversity collapse if we fall in behind the U.N. and its multiple agencies.

    WASHINGTON — General Motors abandoned President Trump’s battle to nullify California’s fuel economy rules meant to curb global warming, the strongest sign yet that corporate America is moving on from Mr. Trump and adapting to an incoming Democratic administration. The company also signaled that it was ready to work with President-elect Joseph R. Biden Jr., who has promised swift action to reduce climate-warming emissions in the auto sector. “President-elect Biden recently said, ‘I believe that we can own the 21st century car market again by moving to electric vehicles.’ We at General Motors couldn’t agree more,” Mary Barra, the General...
  • Some Amazon rainforest regions more resistant to climate change than previously thought

    Columbia Engineering researchers decided to investigate whether this was true, whether these forests are really as sensitive to water stress as what the models have been showing. In a study published today in Science Advances, they report their discovery that these models have been largely over-estimating water stress in tropical forests. The team found that, while models show that increases in air dryness greatly diminish photosynthesis rates in certain regions of the Amazon rainforest, the observational data results show the opposite: in certain very wet regions, the forests instead even increase photosynthesis rates in response to drier air.

    India is the only G20 nation doing its “fair share” to meet the climate change mitigation commitments it agreed to under the 2015 Paris Climate Accord, a 2020 Climate Transparency report published on Wednesday revealed. Climate Transparency is an international group of 14 research and non-governmental organizations that examines global climate action. In its report, the group examined the efforts taken by G20 nations to tackle climate change since the 2015 Paris Agreement.

    On her 2:00 p.m. ET hour show on Thursday, MSNBC anchor and left-wing climate change activist Katy Tur was salivating over the incoming Biden administration’s plans to implement economy-killing climate regulations by executive fiat. She lead off the segment by hailing: “Four years of climate change denial will come to an end on January 20th when President-Elect Joe Biden takes office.” Tur excitedly touted how Joe Biden was “planning a flurry of climate-focused executive actions on day one, including rejoining the Paris Accords, implementing the already-existing Clean Air Act, and requiring public companies to disclose their operational climate risks and...

    January 1, 2035 The USA has kept its promise under its Paris climate pact renewal shepherded though a reluctant Senate by Majority Leader Schumer in 2021 after an angry rebuke of about a dozen Democratic holdouts by President Biden, who was at his dogmatic best, pure emotion untempered by in-depth thought. The once great American oil companies such as Exxon-Mobil and Chevron no longer exist. America no longer has a petrochemical industry. This has created drug shortages in past years as needed chemicals were not available, but buying and stockpiling Chinese chemicals paid for by jewelry extracted from Americans needing...

    In a move to implement what he characterized as "a more efficient form of government," Gov. Tom Wolf (D-Penn) has signed on to a multi-state Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI) agreement that will result in higher taxes on the state's inhabitants. This bypasses the state constitution's delegation of the taxing power to the legislature. Wolf explained that "we are in a climate crisis. Waiting for the legislature to act wastes precious time. Rather than let the people of Pennsylvania, the United States, and the world suffer while legislators dither is unacceptable." For its part, a bipartisan majority of the legislature...

    Mike Bloomberg's climate change group is dumping $2.5 million into the North Carolina race for lieutenant governor to support Democrat Yvonne Holley in the final stretch before the election. "Holley, when elected, will be North Carolina’s first African American Lieutenant Governor, and will serve as president of the Senate, chair of the Energy Policy Council, and will determine the fate of critical legislation," Bloomberg's Beyond Carbon Victory Fund said in a statement. The group also announced Wednesday that it is spending roughly $2 million to support Democrats running for the Arizona Corporation Commission.

    Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon and the world’s richest man, likes to depict himself as rising from difficult circumstances. His mother was still in high school when she became pregnant and his biological father left early on. Bezos as well as his former wife, Mackenzie, are members in good standing of what Charles Murray called the new upper class, in his book: Coming Apart: The State of White America 1960-2010. The Bezos couple exhibited high intelligence, were successful at the best colleges, and rose rapidly in their careers. Members of the new upper class marry each other, live in...

    Early this week, Oregon governor Kate Brown went on national television to call the Pacific Coast fires a “bellwether for climate change.” As UC Berkeley professor of sustainable development Maximilian Auffhammer writes, “It’s the climate change, stupid.”This is one of four responses to the Pacific Coast fires. Brown and Auffhammer are warmers, people who believe the earth’s climate is changing and the fires must be due to that change. In the warmers’ minds, the fires themselves then become evidence that we need to change our lifestyles to cut back on greenhouse gas emissions.A second group are the burners, people who...

    Recently, on national television with George Stephanopoulos, Gov. Jay Inslee said that climate change is almost solely the reason for the devastating fires all across the west. How much veracity is there to this? Cliff Mass, professor of atmospheric sciences at the UW, joined the Dori Monson Show to discuss. What is his reaction to the governor’s comments? “Well, in general, it’s not true. And one important thing you have to keep in mind is you have to talk about what fires you’re looking at,” Mass said. “Because different fires in different places have different origins. So the fires that...

    The founder of reacted to Joe Biden’s speech on climate change Monday by stating the address “was filled with one falsehood after another.” Steve Milloy said in a statement moments after Biden’s environmental speech that it was “filled with one falsehood after another, falsehoods that guarantee wildfires will burn much more of the American West.” Milloy continued: In particular, Biden claimed the wildfires were caused by climate change, air quality was killing people, and air pollution and COVID was killing even more people. Scientists know that California is prone to extended periods of natural megadroughts. Without forest management, California...
  • ‘How Many Suburbs Will Be Burned’ If ‘Climate Arsonist’ Trump Is Reelected, Joe Biden Asks

    Calling President Donald Trump “a climate arsonist,” Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden predicted dire environmental consequences Monday if Trump is reelected. “If we have four more years of Trump’s climate denial, how many suburbs will be burned in wildfires? How many suburban neighborhoods will have been flooded out? How many suburbs will have been blown away in superstorms?” Biden asked while giving an outdoor environmental speech from Wilmington, Delaware. “If you give a climate arsonist four more years in the White House, why would anyone be surprised if we have more America ablaze? “If you give a climate denier four...

    On Monday, Democratic nominee Joe Biden condemned President Donald Trump as a “climate arsonist,” predicting that if the president wins reelection in November, America will witness more “hellish” events like fires in the West, flooding in the Midwest, and hurricanes on the East Coast. He effectively promised that if he wins, America will suffer from fewer fires, fewer floods, and fewer hurricanes. Although Biden excoriated Trump for “ignoring the facts” and “denying reality,” he focused his remarks on the wildfires ravaging California, Oregon, and Washington State — fires exacerbated by bad forest management more than any sort of climate change....

    The following is a collection of articles, tweets and videos that show many of the fires on the West Coast have been initiated by Arsonists. The West Coast is on fire and tens of thousands of people are being evacuated and displaced as a result. The MSM and ‘Fact Checkers’ are trying to convince the American people that arsonists aren’t responsible for deliberately setting wildfires on the west coast. Pelosi wants you to believe that “mother earth is angry” and that these fires are a result of climate change, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. So far the...
