  • Oil majors want Supreme Court to hamstring growing state and local climate lawsuits

    01/18/2021 8:34:08 AM PST · by rktman · 31 replies ^ | 1/18/2021 0700 hrs est | Abby Smith
    BP and other oil majors are calling on the Supreme Court to deal a blow to the growing number of city and state-led lawsuits seeking to force the companies to pay billions for climate damages. The Supreme Court justices will hear arguments over one of the cases, brought by the city of Baltimore, on Tuesday. Baltimore is arguing oil companies deliberately understated the effect their products would have on rising greenhouse gas emissions. The city is asking courts to hold the companies liable for the costs of adapting to climate change effects such as sea level rise, flooding, and extreme...
  • Trump’s Actions Should Slow Biden’s Radical Climate Agenda

    01/14/2021 8:39:58 AM PST · by rktman · 22 replies ^ | 1/14/2021 | H Sterling Burnett
    Incoming President Joe Biden has promised to implement the most radical energy and climate agenda Americans have ever seen. With the Democratic party having become an almost wholly owned subsidiary of the radical progressive environmental left while controlling both houses of Congress for at least the next two years and the White House for the next four years, Biden and his climate alarmist ilk have their best opportunity ever to impose the biggest government takeover of the economy since the Great Depression. Fortunately, in the waning days of President Donald Trump’s term, his administration took a series of actions that...
  • Biden’s Climate Change Litmus Test

    Here is a fundamental question: If Biden thinks government has the power to change the climate (it doesn't), why hasn't government been able to prevent hurricanes and other natural disasters? COVID-19 is being used by politicians -- nearly all of them Democrats -- to erode our liberties. If given the power to dictate what we drive, the type of house we can live in and other freedoms we have long taken for granted, government will not be able to resist adding even more demands in the name of saving the planet. At the 2016 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland,...
  • U.S. city mandates climate-change health warning at every gas pump

    Well, however well warning labels work -- or even if they do -- the city of Cambridge, Massachusetts, is about to see if it works for gas in the way I described it. According to The Guardian, every pump in the city will come with a sticker that warns you that you're killing the planet with each tank you fill. The warning labels will read that burning fossil fuels has “major consequences on human health and the environment including contributing to climate change."
  • Egg on Their Faces: 10 Climate Alarmist Predictions for 2020 That Went Horribly Wrong(awwww)

    Long before Beto O’Rourke claimed the world only had 10 years left for humans to act against climate change, alarmists had spent decades predicting one doomsday scenario after another, each of which stubbornly failed to materialize. It seems climate armageddon has taken a permanent sabbatical. Many of those doomsday predictions specifically mentioned the annus horribilus of 2020. Those predictions also failed, some rather spectacularly. Steve Milloy, a former Trump/Pence EPA transition team member and founder of, compiled ten climate predictions for 2020 that fell far off the mark.
  • China’s Green NGO Climate Propaganda Enablers Climate change is a national security threat – but not in the way the national security elite assumes.

    This pattern, wherein the West’s enemies use the environmental movement – whether NGOs like Greenpeace, foundations, or “concerned scientists,” to undermine Western interests – is now being repeated, this time in respect to China. A report by Patricia Adams for the London-based Global Warming Policy Foundation released earlier this month lays bare the role of the green movement in acting as China’s propagandists. Since Xi Jinping became general secretary of the Chinese Communist Party eight years ago, almost everyone who believed China’s communist regime would become more benign internally and less threatening externally has revised his opinion – everyone, that...
  • Oxford University students vote to ban beef, lamb from campus eateries. Cites need to be leader in fight against climate change

    The Oxford University Student Union recently voted to ban the serving of beef and lamb at various campus eateries, citing the need to be a leader in the fight against climate change. According to the Oxford Mail, individual colleges within the university ultimately would decide whether to initiate the meat restrictions. “As the UK’s premier university, the nation looks to Oxford for leadership, but Oxford has shown a lack of leadership in addressing climate change,” the resolution reads. “The banning of beef and lamb at university-catered events and outlets is a feasible and effective strategy to help the university meet...
  • Tesla's Supercharger Network in Australia officially costs more than gas fill-up Puts an end to years-long claims that recharging its vehicles offered savings

    (ZEROHEDGE) -- Using the Tesla Supercharger network, it is now costlier to recharge your vehicle than it is to gas up at a traditional gas station, according to a new report from Australia-based WhichCar. The news came as a result of a "recent price increase" to use the Superchargers and - stop us if you've heard this one - "incorrect fuel figures on the Tesla website". This, of course, puts an end to Tesla's years long claims that recharging its vehicles offered savings versus traditional internal combustion engine vehicles.

    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...

    Flanked by four expensive electric vehicles, California Governor Gavin Newsom recently announced the signing of a new executive order. He promised this action would bring “an abundance of new choices and new technologies” and then proceeded to break some news. First, he declared, “by 2035 we will eliminate in the State of California the sale of the internal combustion engine.” Under the auspices of promoting choice and technology, Newsom effectively set in motion the elimination of the most affordable and reliable transportation option for Californians. It does not take an accountant or an economist to know that life in California...

    President Donald Trump mocked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal proposal on Friday. “She’s got a great line of bulls**t, that’s about it,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Macon, Georgia. “She knows nothing about the environment.” He noted that the Green New Deal proposed trillions of dollars of spending to reduce greenhouse gases on the planet in an effort to stop global warming “This is the craziest thing, done by AOC plus three,” he said, mocking the group of freshman Democrat members of congress that rallied to Ocasio-Cortez with far-left ideas. “These are not great academics,”...
  • Delingpole: Study Confirms Donald Trump Is Right – ‘Clean’ Energy Is the Worst

    Renewable energy is cripplingly expensive, hopelessly unreliable, massacres wildlife, destroys landscapes, destabilises the grid, harms indigenous peoples, and causes climate change. But apart from that it’s great, says a meticulous review published in the scientific journal Energies by a team of Irish and U.S.-based researchers. Actually, the part about renewable energy being ‘great’ is a joke but the rest is true. The scholarly review – Energy and Climate Policy – An Evaluation of Climate Change Expenditure 2011-2018 – is probably the most thorough meta-analysis published on the so-called ‘clean energy’ sector. Its conclusion, though neutrally expressed, could scarcely be more...
  • End China’s Infection of the US Power Grid

    China and “probably one or two other” countries can shut down the U.S. power grid through a cyberattack. This disturbing revelation was made by Admiral Michael Rogers, former head of the National Security Agency, to Congress – in November 2014. China has also become the world’s leading supplier of transformers – the “spine” of electricity grids -- according to a 2014 U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) report. This also presents significant challenges to U.S. grid security. For economic and security reasons, the United States should no longer purchase transformers and other electric grid equipment manufactured in China. It is important...
  • Joe Biden's climate plan forecast to bring 'environmental apocalypse' 'Wind turbines would ultimately cover two-thirds of America's land'

    This story originally was published by Real Clear Energy. Imagine an America where mountaintop ridges, coastal seashores, open plains, and most of our undeveloped lands are developed with wind turbines from coast to coast. Imagine an America where we are forced to transform two-thirds of the nation’s land mass into fields for industrial wind turbines, leaving little land left over for forests, open spaces, animal habitat, or anything else. That is exactly what Joe Biden’s climate plan would require. Under a Biden presidency, we must prepare for an environmental apocalypse. Adding Kamala Harris to the ticket makes the Biden climate...

    Gov. Steve Sisolak launched the new State of Nevada Climate Initiative (NCI) to further advance Nevada’s efforts to address climate change. This first-of-a-kind initiative includes the unveiling of the NCI website,, to serve as the State’s official online climate resource providing a Nevada-wide framework for climate action. A key pillar of the initiative is robust public engagement and input from Nevada residents to help inform and guide Nevada’s climate action. The State Climate Strategy will provide the needed framework for Nevada policymakers to evaluate the alignment of various climate policies and programs with the timelines and benchmarks necessary for...
  • How to drive fossil fuels out of the US economy, quickly The US has everything it needs to decarbonize by 2035.

    In the runup to World War II, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt enlisted the entire US economy in an effort to scale up production of war material. All of the country’s resources were bent to the task. In 1939, the US had 1,700 aircraft; in 1945, it had 300,000 military aircraft and 18,500 B–24 bombers. By the time the war was won, the economy was up and humming with a massively expanded workforce (drawing in women and African Americans) and turbocharged productive capacity. Investments made during the war mobilization yielded a robust middle class and decades of sustained, broadly shared prosperity....

    Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef is once again the excuse for extending Green control of all land and waters. The current scare concerns the quality of water draining into the Coral Sea. The Greens' hidden agenda is to eliminate coastal agriculture, mining, and commercial fishing. They would surrender the land to kangaroos, cassowaries, lantana, cane toads, wild cats, and feral pigs and the seas to marauding sharks, cruising whales, and aboriginal fishermen. Reef Warriors will never be satisfied until pure water drains from farms, mines, ports, and rivers along the Queensland coast. This is an impossible and misguided dream. Pure water...

    The state’s new electrification mandate for trucks will threaten working-class jobs and widen income inequality. No state advertises its green credentials more than California. That these policies often hurt the economy, driving up housing costs and narrowing opportunities for working-class people while not even doing much for the environment, has not discouraged the state’s environmental overlords. Consider the state’s insistence on electrifying transportation. Even as California reduces its reliable sources of power, notably nuclear and national gas, it is mandating a statewide shift to all-electric medium- and heavy-duty trucks starting in 2024, with the goal of reaching 100 percent of...

    Former vice president and Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden said Tuesday the United States only has nine years to address climate change as he vowed to deliver net zero emissions by 2050 — 30 years from now. “We’ll lock in progress that no future president can roll back or undercut to take us backward again,” Biden outlined in a speech. “Science requires a time table for measuring progress on climate that isn’t three decades or even two.” “Science tells us we have nine years before the damage is irreversible,” Biden said. “So my time table results is my first four...

    If the "liberal" green movement had the political power during earlier periods of our nation's history that it has now, we would not have built the railroads. Also, there would be no interstate highway system, and the electric grid system that powers our country would be disconnected and shattered. What else can one conclude when a significant and vital energy pipeline, the 600-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline from West Virginia into the southern states, has been canceled because of environmental activist opposition? Another pipeline, the Dakota Access Pipeline, has been suspended by a federal judge's order in recent days. Even the...
