    The Democrats’ massive climate spending package, which President Joe Biden signed into law on Tuesday, will give over $40 billion to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), just as the bill allocates almost $80 billion to expand the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The bill, dubbed the Inflation Reduction Act, includes $369 billion in total climate spending, and will give the EPA more than $40 billion in the current fiscal year to combat climate change, enforce environmental standards and secure “environmental justice,” according to a Congressional Research Service report. The EPA’s enacted budget for 2022’s fiscal year was about $9.5 billion, according...
  • Wind energy boom and golden eagles collide in the US West

    The rush to build wind farms to combat climate change is colliding with preservation of one of the U.S. West's most spectacular predators—the golden eagle—as the species teeters on the edge of decline. Ground zero in the conflict is Wyoming, a stronghold for golden eagles that soar on 7-foot (2-meter) wings and a favored location for wind farms. As wind turbines proliferate, scientists say deaths from collisions could drive down golden eagle numbers considered stable at best. Yet climate change looms as a potentially greater threat: Rising temperatures are projected to reduce golden eagle breeding ranges by more than 40%...

    Liberal billionaire Bill Gates embarked on a campaign to woo Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) in an attempt to gain his support for President Joe Biden’s massive climate bill, according to a new report. A new Bloomberg Green report exposed a years-long behind-the-scenes pressure campaign by Gates to influence the senator into supporting his leftist climate agenda. Recently, when it appeared that Manchin was set to sink massive left-wing legislative efforts that included “climate or tax provisions” last month, Bloomberg Green said that Gates “felt he had to give one of the nation’s most powerful lawmakers a little pep talk,” referring...

  • The Basic Math Problem that Undoes Global Warming Hysteria: If the climate alarmists truly believe there is a climate emergency, then they should be able to solve this one

    If someone proposes a solution to an "existential problem" that has no chance of success, should we be forced to take the problem seriously? If the climate alarmists truly believe there is a climate emergency, then they should be able to answer the first basic question about "the plan." Are the numbers in the plan even remotely achievable? Remember: based on their screeching, we have only twelve years before we all die from "man-made climate change." To answer that question, let's break part of the plan into the most basic math problem: can we replace 25%, 50%, or 75% of...
  • U.S. to pause oil, gas leasing on 2.2 million acres in Colorado over climate impact

    (Reuters) - The Bureau of Land Management will pause oil and gas leasing on 2.2 million acres of Colorado public land after environmental groups alleged its current management plan failed to consider climate impacts, according to a settlement. The agreement was filed Thursday in Colorado federal court and requires the government to conduct a new environmental analysis of the climate impacts of oil and gas leasing on public lands in southwestern Colorado. The government also agreed to consider how the leases may impact the endangered Gunnison sage- grouse and its habitat. The Sierra Club, Center for Biological Diversity and others...

    This time, it is mega-floods in California replacing mega-droughts, and again they are supposedly caused by us and fossil fuels. Not once do journalists give a damn that their previous dire predictions have been 100% false. To the compliant, complicit media, and other Democrats, floods, droughts, too much snow, too little snow, record cold, record warmth are all caused by us, instead of cyclical and natural. The solution is always bigger government and more control of our lives. It is arrogant and ignorant for anyone to pretend they can control temperatures, sea levels, and storm activities if we just hand...

    A powerful Dutch banking executive signaled support for personal carbon wallets that would give citizens — and perhaps even a government regulator — the ability to track carbon emissions on a micro scale. Is this an early look at what the U.S. has in store if it doesn’t stop woke environmental, social and governance policies?

    New York Times economic columnist Paul Krugman is now pretending to be a climate expert since his economic record on inflation is just awful. Now, he’s celebrating Democrat senators for allegedly trying to “save” civilization from a supposed eco-disaster with their $740 billion Inflation Reduction Act, projected to worsen inflation. The Democrat-controlled House of Representatives is currently considering the legislation. Krugman was tickled pink in his latest drivel headlined: “Did Democrats Just Save Civilization?” In the lead of the story, he fawned: “They really did it.” He continued: “This is a very big deal. The act isn’t, by itself, enough...

    Center of the American Experiment - Minnesota ^ | August 5, 2022 | Isaac Orr |
    On August 2, 2022, Xcel Energy submitted its plan to spend more than $300 million on building 730 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and increasing the use of electric school buses to the Public Utilities Commission (PUC). The proposal would force Minnesota families and businesses to pay higher electricity prices to finance the construction and operation of the EV chargers, plus a 10 percent government-approved profit for Xcel Energy if the PUC gives Xcel its blessing. Goals are not mandates.. The point of a monopoly electric utility is to provide reliable, affordable electricity to the customers who are forced to...

    The owner of a photo press agency in Gelderland says he has been threatened several times because of the photo of a swastika flag last weekend at the A1 in Stroe. Yesterday rumors arose on social media that a press photographer from the agency would have hung the flag himself... A roadside fire raged next to the flag. In recent weeks roadside fires have been part of farmers protests more often, but Heitink says he has not suggested that the flag came from the farmers...
  • Germany's energy U-turn: Coal instead of gas

    Berlin has realized it will never again import as much energy from Russia as before the Ukraine war. So the challenge is to wean Germany off its dependence on Russian energy sources, and quickly. The question is how. Starting this week, German hard coal-fired power stations are restarting operations, which were being phased out because of the hugely detrimental climate impact on a world already ravaged by global warming. Germany's goal had been to phase out all coal-generated electricity by 2038. But now, the government is swallowing the bitter pill of allowing coal-fired power back onto the grid. At the...

    The near vertiginous rise in the annual growth of coral at the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is continuing, with further major increases recorded across large areas.According to the 2021-22 annual summary from the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS), levels of coral cover in the northern and central areas of the reef were at their highest levels over the past 36 years of monitoring.The growth is of course excellent news for environmentalists, but curiously, at the time of writing, the news is being downplayed in the mainstream media. The demise of the world’s coral reefs has long been a go-to...

    Buyers of a majority of electric-vehicle models would not qualify for a $7,500 tax credit under a Democratic proposal in the U.S. Senate. That's according to a group of major automakers. Automakers have been privately concerned about the proposal's requirements for vehicles' batteries and critical-mineral contents to be sourced from the United States. The July 27 proposal by Senators Chuck Schumer and Joe Manchin would make 70% of U.S. electric, plug-in hybrid and fuel-cell EVs ineligible upon passage, according to John Bozzella, heads of the Alliance for Automotive Innovation. The group represents General Motors, Toyota Motor, and Ford Motor among...

    Climate change alarmists are now blaming global warming for making the earth “spin faster” in their latest effort to convince people to lessen their output of carbon dioxide. In an article in Mic Thursday titled “Climate Change Is Literally Making the Earth Spin Faster,” writer A.J. Dellinger cites a study published in the Journal of Geophysical Earth, which “found that our planet is spinning faster than ever, resulting in our days being shorter than ever.” Whereas a normal day on earth is made up of 24 hours, or 86,400 seconds, June 29 saw “our shortest day on record,” Dellinger writes,...

    Seriously, there is no climate crisis. Readers of WND have known this for at least 20 years, like a great many other things. Yet Democrats aim to make themselves even more unpopular by spending $439 billion over several years on climate change and renewable energy plans that haven't worked since the 1970s under Jimmy Carter. (The U.S. Department of Defense requested $495.6 billion for Fiscal Year 2015). Democrats have forgotten about Solyndra. How many different ways can we explain that humans are incapable of and are not affecting the climate of the Earth? It starts with a failure to understand...

    Leaders in the Democratic Party are backing legislation to reduce carbon emissions. Some of them are also sponsoring bills that would expand the cannabis industry, ranging from the MORE Act to the Safe Banking Act and now the Cannabis Administration and Opportunity Act just introduced by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). Co-sponsors have publicly chastised President Joe Biden for not doing enough to help in their effort. They are seemingly unaware that although today’s cannabis may seem “green” - after all, it traps carbon dioxide in organic material and generates oxygen in the process - its similarity to other...

    Two-thirds of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia recorded the highest amount of coral cover in nearly four decades, though the reef is still vulnerable to climate change and mass bleaching, a monitoring group said Thursday. The northern and central parts of the UNESCO world heritage-listed reef have experienced some recovery while the southern region has seen a loss of coral cover due to crown-of-thorns starfish outbreaks, according to a report by the Australian Institute of Marine Science, a government agency. AIMS CEO Paul Hardisty said that while the coral in the north and central regions was a sign the...

    Kamala obviously didn’t make her way to the top on her brain power. Kamala told supporters the recent record flooding in Missouri and Kentucky could have been prevented if Congress spent more to fight climate change. Kamala also spit out another word salad of nonsense Monday. She was discussing the recent flooding in the Midwest. Kamala Harris: “While we send our prayers, and our love, we also, with each day, renew our commitment to the urgency of now and the ability that we have collectively, all of us in it together, to do something about it.”

    Experts are ignoring the worst possible climate change catastrophic scenarios, including collapse of society or the potential extinction of humans, however unlikely, a group of top scientists claim. Eleven scientists from around the world are calling on the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the world’s authoritative climate science organization, to do a special science report on “catastrophic climate change” to “bring into focus how much is at stake in a worst-case scenario.” In their perspective piece in Monday’s Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences they raise the idea of human extinction and worldwide societal collapse in the...
