    London Evening Standard ^ | May 1 | By Barney Davis
    A masked man who has claimed to have ripped down the Mayor of London’s Ulez (Ultra Low Emission Zone) cameras has said his group will not stop until they have all been destroyed. Drivers will be asked to pay £12.50-a-day to travel in Greater London from August 29, if their vehicle doesn’t meet certain environmental standards causing some activists to take matters into their own hands. The balaclava-clad vandal, a father in his mid-40s, said he was part of a group called Blade Runners and told MailOnline he dismantled 34 himself. “We are going to take down every single one...
  • WEF has a new enemy – car parking spaces

    Have you ever been to a densely populated, unfamiliar city and struggled to find a parking spot? It happened to me today when I visited a nearby college town for a “Mom’s weekend” when parents of all college students descended there. Parking was so hard to find! If the World Economic Forum (“WEF”) gets its way, you will have trouble finding parking every day, everywhere! It turns out that the WEF has found a new enemy: parking spaces. You see, parking spaces slow down climate progress and “hold back urban mobility.” While it is hard for me to understand why...

    California regulators on Friday voted to ban the sale of new diesel big rigs by 2036 and require all trucks to be zero-emissions by 2042, a decision that puts the state at the forefront of mitigating national tailpipe pollution. The California Air Resources Board unanimously approved the Advanced Clean Fleets rule, the state's second zero-emissions trucks rule and first in the world to require new commercial trucks, including garbage trucks, delivery trucks and other medium and heavy-duty vehicles, to be electric. Supporters of the rule say it will improve public health in marginalized communities that have endured polluted air while...
  • Biden Creates New White House Office in Executive Order on “Environmental Justice”

    The New American ^ | April 23, 2023 | James Murphy
    On Friday, just in time for Earth Day, the Biden administration announced the signing of a new executive order that the president claims will embed “environmental justice into the work of federal agencies to achieve real, measurable progress that communities can count on.” As part of that new executive order, a new White House Office of Environmental Justice will be created. So-called environmental justice is at the core of the new order and, as with everything in our new “woke” world, combating racism will be at the core of the new office’s mission. “For far too long, communities across our...
  • Climate goons deflate tires on 43 ‘gas guzzler’ SUVs in Boston, leave snarky notes

    An international climate activist group has claimed responsibility for deflating tires on 43 SUVs in Boston’s tony Beacon Hill neighborhood — and leaving behind preachy notes warning vehicle owners: “Your gas guzzler kills.” In a blog post, the group, which calls themselves the Tyre Extinguishers and claims to have 15,000 members worldwide, explained that Wednesday night’s stunt was their first foray into Boston, and that activists only targeted “large, luxury gas powered SUVs.” The eco-warriors noted that they spared hybrid, electric and handicapped-marked vehicles. “SUVs and 4x4s are a disaster for our health, our public safety and our climate.

    The European Parliament has approved three climate laws that form the heart of EU efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55 percent by 2030. […] The first law up for adoption was the updated version of the Emission Trading System (ETS) on industry, increasing industry emission-reduction targets to 62 percent by 2030. […] To keep EU industries competitive, a carbon border levy (CBAM) directed at goods coming into Europe was also adopted by a broad majority in parliament, making up the second leg of the so-called holy trinity. The levy will apply to imported steel, fertilizer, aluminum,...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit tossed a Berkeley, California, ban on gas stoves on Monday, saying that the federal Energy Policy and Conservation Act preempted state and local authorities in regulating natural gas. The Courthouse News Service reported: The three-judge panel’s ruling reverses a federal judge’s dismissal of a lawsuit by the California Restaurant Association claiming the Energy Policy and Conservation Act preempts the San Francisco Bay Area city’s ban. The group said the ordinance would affect chefs’ ability to prepare food the way they are typically trained — using natural gas stoves.

    The New York Times reported that the Biden administration will abuse EPA regulations to eliminate most real car sales by 2030. The plan is to force 67% of car sales to be electric by 2032. Most Americans won’t be able to afford them, but they’ll have no other options. Even the cheapest electric cars, which are still far more expensive than their real car counterparts and are just one battery problem away from turning into mostly unusable junk, are out of the price range of the majority of Americans who need an income of $80,000 to make an EV auto...

    President Joe Biden is preparing a series of new executive orders to address climate change, according to recent comments by his special envoy on climate-related issues, John Kerry. Kerry discussed the Biden administration’s plans for reducing U.S. emissions during an interview with Yahoo News Senior Climate Editor Ben Adler on Friday. Adler noted that the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) championed by the Biden administration is projected to bring down U.S. emissions by about 40 percent, despite a goal set by the administration to bring about a 50 percent reduction in U.S. emissions by the end of the decade. “We’re doing...

    The Biden administration announced its latest home appliance regulations this week, targeting air conditioners in an action it said would reduce the nation's carbon emissions. The regulations, unveiled Thursday by the Department of Energy (DOE), finalize energy efficiency standards for home air conditioning units, or window air conditioners, and portable air cleaners. The DOE said the move would cut air pollution and push consumer costs down by billions of dollars via energy savings. "Today’s announcement builds on the historic actions President Biden took last year to strengthen outdated energy efficiency standards, which will help save on people’s energy bills and...

    BERLIN (AP) — The head of the United Nations called Monday for scientists to serve up “cold, hard facts” to push governments into making policies that curb climate change before a key global warming threshold is passed. In a video address to delegates, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that the latest report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change “could not come at a more pivotal time.” “Our world is at a crossroads — and our planet is in the crosshairs,” he said. “We are nearing the point of no return; of overshooting the internationally agreed limit of 1.5 degrees...

    The globalist war against meat rages on. A February 27 segment on the German public television network ARD shows environmentally conscious viewers a version of the kitchen of tomorrow, complete with its own worm farm. Journalist Anja Reschke tells viewers how their craving for meat can be satisfied, not by climate-destroying farms, but by minced worms that anybody can simply grow themselves. The nauseating video shows Reschke’s highly sanitized version of how consumers everywhere can grow worms in their own kitchen until they’re “round and juicy.” Once fully grown, those worms can be frozen until the consumer is ready to...

    During an interview with Christiane Amanpour on Tuesday broadcast on Tuesday’s edition of CNN International’s “Amanpour,” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas refused to say the border is a crisis, argued that there are many issues facing the agency, such as the “extreme weather events” that he said are “triggering migration,” and stated that other nations have migration issues. Mayorkas cited Chile deploying its military to the border as an example of this. Mayorkas said that the threats facing the agency, which have grown in “diversity and complexity and footprint as well.

    Giant mirrors positioned to reflect sunlight back into space may be needed to meet climate targets, according to a report from the United Nations. Solar radiation modification (SRM), also known as solar geoengineering, is among the proposals from the UN Environment Programme to use radical technology to avoid a climate emergency. “SRM is the only known approach that could be used to cool the Earth within a few years,” the report, compiled by an expert panel of climate scientists, stated. “Climate model simulations consistently show that SRM could offset some of the effects of increasing greenhouse gases on global and...

    The globalists at the World Economic Forum have instructed governments worldwide to begin severely rationing meat and fuel in an acceleration towards their Great Reset agenda. According to a study conducted by globalist-aligned academics, World War II-style rationing is the answer to the so-called climate crisis. reports: The authors believe a rationing scheme would be more equitable than individual allowances, because unlike carbon taxes and carbon-credit schemes – both of which have been proposed in response to climate change – rationing would not allow the rich to “buy their way out”. A rationing scheme could also have broader applications,...

    Two Minnesota Democratic lawmakers are proposing a pair of bills that would significantly impact the state's backyards and neighborhood ice rinks in an effort to combat climate change. State Reps. Jerry Newton and Heather Edelson, members of the Minnesota Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party, introduced legislation on Monday that would block the sale of common landscaping appliances like lawn mowers and chainsaws as well ice resurfacing machines such as Zambonis, requiring that only electric battery versions be sold in the state starting Jan. 1, 2025. The ban on lawn and garden equipment would include any machine that uses "a spark ignition engine rated...

    The White House this week reversed a Trump-era rule stripping the Environmental Protection Agency of some regulatory oversight over power plants, hailing the reversal as a win for “public health.” The EPA said on a press release on Friday that the “Biden-Harris administration” had “reverse[d] a rule issued by the previous administration in May 2020” which “undermined the legal basis” for the EPA’s rulemaking authority regarding “​​mercury, acid gases, and other harmful pollutants.” “For years, Mercury and Air Toxics Standards have protected the health of American communities nationwide, especially children, low-income communities, and communities of color who often and unjustly...

    President Joe Biden on Monday promoted electric vehicles again as part of his administration’s push for green energy, smiling gleefully in an EV with a mask hanging underneath his chin. “On my watch, the great American road trip is going to be fully electrified. And now, through a tax credit, you can get up to $7,500 on a new electric vehicle,” Biden said alongside an accompanying image, showing the president smiling in a Hummer EV. The image shows Biden with a mask under his chin and an individual in the passenger seat who remained masked up: Notably, these same Hummer...

    The Climate Imperative Foundation is the newest and richest anti-hydrocarbon, anti-natural gas group you’ve never heard of. How rich is Climate Imperative? According to the latest report from Guidestar, the group took in $221 million in its first full year of operation. (Guidestar calls the income “gross receipts.”) That means that Climate Imperative, which is less than three years old, is already taking in more cash than the Sierra Club, which bills itself as the “nation’s largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization.” According to Guidestar, the Sierra Club collected $180 million in its latest reporting year. Climate Imperative is...
