  • Liberals Aghast: ‘Shockingly’ Few U.S. Catholics Support Pope Francis on Climate Change

    ROME — Progressive Catholics are rending their seamless garments over poll results showing that a “shockingly low” number of U.S. Catholics support Pope Francis’s radical take on global warming. “Ahead of the release of Laudato Deum [the pope’s new climate encyclical], shockingly low numbers of American Catholic[s] support @pontifex on climate. Formation on this should be a priority for bishops,” writes Stephen Schneck, who served as national co-chair of Catholics for Biden in 2020. Schneck is also on the Board of Directors for Catholic Climate Covenant and was previously a board member for Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good,...
  • Earth can regulate its own temperature over millennia, new study finds Scientists have confirmed that a “stabilizing feedback” on 100,000-year timescales keeps global temperatures in check.

    The Earth’s climate has undergone some big changes, from global volcanism to planet-cooling ice ages and dramatic shifts in solar radiation. And yet life, for the last 3.7 billion years, has kept on beating. Now, a study by MIT researchers in Science Advances confirms that the planet harbors a “stabilizing feedback” mechanism that acts over hundreds of thousands of years to pull the climate back from the brink, keeping global temperatures within a steady, habitable range. Just how does it accomplish this? A likely mechanism is “silicate weathering” — a geological process by which the slow and steady weathering of...
  • Thousands Of Scientists Including Nobel Prize Winners Sign Declaration Denouncing Climate Change Hoax

    “Climatology” is a fake science created by the UN to promote global warming. A person who studies the weather is a “meteorologist.” Warming is caused by the Sun. We’re in a natural warming period. Warming is good for humans and most animals and plants as well. There is no problem. The promotion of this carbon dioxide warming hoax is a conspiracy to create a global government and force the peasants into poverty at a time of extreme material abundance. The College Fix: A total of 1,609 scientists, professors and other scholars have signed on to a new declaration that argues...

    Fourteen American cities have agreed to ban meat, private vehicle ownership, and dairy consumption in order to save the planet from global warming. Phoenix, Arizona is one of the fourteen. Mayor Kate Gallego (D) described the climate situation as "dire. Just last month Governor Hobbs (D) declared a heat emergency when daytime temperatures hit 110 degrees. It's clear to me that the time to implement the kind of measures needed is now." "Though the goal of reducing greenhouse gases will require a dramatic change in our diets, we are not explicitly banning meat at this time," Gallego said. "There are,...

    Has the air gone out of the “climate crisis” balloon? It’s starting to look like it. Some other causes du jour are looking limp lately, too. Oh, hysteria is still out there. In Boston this month, I passed a church where the door bore a lurid poster reading “DUE TO GLOBAL CLIMATE CRISIS, WORSHIP IN SANCTUARY 9-17-23 CANCELED.” If it were really a global crisis, wouldn’t you want to be praying? ...

    Student organizers at 50 different high schools across the country are banding together to launch the “Green New Deal for Schools Campaign.” The hope of the campaign is to get district-wide climate policies enacted, with the ultimate goal of obtaining federal legislation to change schools across the country. The campaign has been set up by the Sunrise Movement, a youth climate justice organization that says this initiative is “in response to attacks from the Right on the American education system.” “The Green New Deal for Schools will transform public schools in America to face the climate crisis and ensure all...

    Non-scientist, 100% politician John Kerry, Biden’s special climiate enjoy, jets around the world lecturing everyone on global warming. Sort of like Leonardo Di Caprio, but uglier. But the same false science in order to control the people. Kerry praised China for its progress in fighting climate change (which changes with the seasons and is also dependent on how close Earth moves towards the Sun in its elipse). But Kerry, Obama, Biden, etc all pretend that it is all due to fossil fuels. And CO2 emissions are bad. (Actually, we need CO2 for plant life to thrive, but don’t tell John...

    “Humanity has opened the gates to hell,” Guterres said during the first-ever Climate Ambition Summit held on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York on Wednesday. Arguing that climate action is now being “dwarfed by the scale of the challenge,” Guterres described crops washed away by floods, the emergence of virulent diseases and the flight of communities from wildfires. “Horrendous heat is having horrendous effects,” the secretary-general said. Guterres stressed that the global target of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit) is still within reach. Countries set the 1.5-degree goal in the 2015 Paris...

    President Joe Biden’s administration is launching the first-ever American Climate Corps Wednesday, the White House said, a workforce training and service initiative aimed at preparing American youth for jobs in clean energy and climate resilience. “The American Climate Corps, just in its first year of recruitment, will put to work a new diverse generation of more than 20,000 Americans doing the important task of conserving and restoring our lands and waters, bolstering community resilience, deploying clean energy – in many cases, distributed and community based – implementing energy efficiency technologies that will cut consumer costs for the American people, and...

    Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego has set out to lay the groundwork to ban meat, dairy, and cars in order to meet climate goals for the 2030 Agenda with C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group. In August, The Daily Fetched reported that fourteen American cities are set to ban meat, private vehicle ownership, and dairy under a new goal assigned by a globalist climate organization called the “C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group.” Those 14 cities are part of a far-left climate organization headed by billionaire globalist Mike Bloomberg, which follows the World Economic Forum’s ‘great reset‘ agenda According to the organization’s website,...

    The Biden administration announced Wednesday that it will make $4.6 billion available to help states, localities and tribes implement their climate plans. The funds represent the bulk of a $5 billion effort under the Inflation Reduction Act to help local and state governments cut their greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. The administration has already put an additional $250 million to help them develop the plans. Biden administration officials told reporters that four states — Florida, Iowa, Kentucky and South Dakota — declined to participate; major metropolitan areas in those states did receive planning grants.

General Assembly on Tuesday – where over 100 heads of government are expected to speak, demanding $100 billion from “developed countries” to fight allegedly deadly “climate chaos.” Guterres made the “climate crisis” a core part of address, the first as per tradition at the event. “No more dirty production. No more fake solutions. No more bankrolling climate denial,” the U.N. chief demanded.

    The state of California is suing five big oil companies and the trade group that represents them for decades-long deception about the correlation between fossil fuel production and climate change. The lawsuit was filed on Friday by the California Attorney General in San Francisco superior court. California’s complaint joins a wave of climate litigation nationwide but could further open the legal floodgates on climate action against oil firms.

    Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), two of Congress’ most vocal proponents for aggressive climate action, on Monday called for President Biden to establish a Civilian Climate Corps. The CCC had been a key element in early versions of the Build Back Better Act, the sweeping environmental and infrastructure bill. It was not ultimately included in the slimmed down Inflation Reduction Act, which was nonetheless the largest climate bill in U.S. history. Biden was a vocal backer of the Climate Corps early in his presidency, comparing it to the Civilian Conservation Corps introduced during the presidency of...

    There's no climate emergency. And the alarmist messaging pushed by global elites is purely political. That's what 1,609 scientists and informed professionals stated when they signed the Global Climate Intelligence Group's "World Climate Declaration.""Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific," the declaration begins. "Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures."The group is an independent "climate watchdog" founded in 2019 by emeritus professor of geophysics Guus Berkhout and Marcel Crok, a...

    The sea-ice surrounding Antarctica is well below any previous recorded winter level, satellite data shows, a worrying new benchmark for a region that once seemed resistant to global warming. "It's so far outside anything we've seen, it's almost mind-blowing," says Walter Meier, who monitors sea-ice with the National Snow and Ice Data Center. An unstable Antarctica could have far-reaching consequences, polar experts warn. Antarctica's huge ice expanse regulates the planet's temperature, as the white surface reflects the Sun's energy back into the atmosphere and also cools the water beneath and near

Newsom is working with the Biden administration to organize the trip, he said Tuesday in an interview with Politico at the California Museum in Sacramento. “The imperative of maintaining a relationship on climate with China is about the fate and future of this planet,” Newsom said. “It’s too important; it’s another example where California needs to lead.”
