    You think FFF kids are mad at their parents for trashing the planet? That’s nothing compared to their anger when you ask them to walk the talk. Angry Greta. Image cropped here. At FaceBook, two German parents of a young schoolgirl decided that if their daughter was going to skip school on Fridays and demand the rest of the world start being responsible for the planet as Greta and Fridays For Future prescribe, then she should begin to do so at home. Well, that didn’t go over too well. Here’s what the two parents wrote: Thanks Greta…. thanks Fridays For...
  • Robert B. Reich: Our Clean-Air Crisis Demands Urgent Action

    08/24/2021 3:56:40 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 54 replies ^ | August 24, 2021 | Staff
    On Saturday morning I met a friend for breakfast at a local diner. We weren't sure whether to sit outside because of the surging delta variant of COVID-19 or inside because stinging smoke from wildfires consuming northern and western California had spread into the Bay Area. Our small dilemma was a microcosm of what many Americans are going through or will be soon. The combination of multiplying COVID-19 variants and mounting environmental damage is making the air dangerous to breathe, inside or out. What to do? Clean air is the quintessential public good. It's supposed to be free, abundant and...
  • WATCH: Extremist Professor Says US Needs ‘Down Payment’ of ‘Trillions’ to Fight Climate Change

    A leftist assistant professor argued that the U.S. needs to spend trillions of taxpayer dollars to fight climate change. And spending “trillions” is just the “down payment,” according to her perspective. University of California, Santa Barbara Assistant Professor Leah Stokes joined liberal news organization Democracy Now! to push her extremist vision for U.S. spending on what she called the “climate crisis.” Co-host Juan González asked Stokes to address the “state roles, uh, in addressing, uh, the uh, the climate crisis.” Stokes said the “states have an important role to play,” but she pivoted to emphasize her fixation on federal spending....
  • Hypocrisy Is the Only Reliable Fuel for Supporters of the Green Agenda

    Talk about a mighty political fall. In less than a year, New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham has gone from the VP shortlist to getting yelled at by her own constituents at her re-election launch. Naturally, the governor responded in a mature and thoughtful way…by calling her own constituents “lizard people.” The rattled response from Lujan Grisham is catching the headlines, but there is another aspect of her announcement that needs to slither into the light: the hypocrisy of her green agenda. It’s important to understand Lujan Grisham has spent the first three years of her term doing her very...

    All over the world, countries are confronting population stagnation and a fertility bust, a dizzying reversal unmatched in recorded history that will make first-birthday parties a rarer sight than funerals, and empty homes a common eyesore.... ...Like an avalanche, the demographic forces — pushing toward more deaths than births — seem to be expanding and accelerating. Though some countries continue to see their populations grow, especially in Africa, fertility rates are falling nearly everywhere else. Demographers now predict that by the latter half of the century or possibly earlier, the global population will enter a sustained decline for the first...

    The intent of the Green New Deal is not to "save the planet," but rather to use climate alarmism as an excuse to destroy America's capitalist economy Twelve years ago, a climate research cheating scandal known as “Climategate 2009” rocked the scientific world to the core. Hacked emails among highly influential scientists at the center of worldwide hysteria over climate change revealed routine data tampering and other instances of flagrant scientific misconduct. Although the scientists implicated denied wrong-doing, emails hacked from computers at their employer, the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, revealed a consistent pattern of...

    A number of major news organizations worldwide, ranging from Scientific American and The Columbia Journalism Review to The Guardian and Al Jazeera, have signed a pledge to begin referring to “climate change” as a “climate emergency” in their reporting. “Scientific American has agreed with major news outlets worldwide to start using the term ‘climate emergency’ in its coverage of climate change,” the publication announced Monday in a tweet to its 3.9 million followers touting “the impact we hope it can have throughout the media landscape.” “We Are Living in a Climate Emergency, and We’re Going to Say So,” the headline...

    The Washington Post Editorial Board tried to scare the U.S. Senate into passing sweeping legislation to fight climate change. The liberal paper’s March 18 editorial headline seemed to suggest Armageddon could happen tomorrow: “The danger of climate change is imminent. The Senate must approve a strong policy.” The editorial reeked of eco-extremist propaganda: “The danger is imminent. The world cannot afford another round of nice-sounding proposals followed by inaction. Congress must go big on climate change.” [Emphasis added.] The Post cried how “THERE HAVE been many moments when it seemed as though the United States would tackle climate change, only...

    The Wall Street Journal took a sledgehammer to a scheme by President Joe Biden's administration to push job-killing climate regulations without congressional approval. A new Journal editorial exposed how “Democratic AGs, green groups and a top Biden environmental regulator are colluding on a plan to impose the Green New Deal on states through a back regulatory door because they know they can’t pass it through the front in Congress.” As the editorial described it, “Climate activists have long sought to force CO2 emissions reductions under the Clean Air Act, but this has been tricky. The Supreme Court in Massachusetts v....

    The US House of Representatives has passed a historic public lands preservation bill that pledges to protect nearly 3m acres of federal lands in Colorado, California, Washington and Arizona. The act combines various bills that languished without Senate approval during the Trump administration. Key provisions include permanently banning new uranium mining on land surrounding the Grand Canyon, giving wilderness designation to 1.5m acres of federal land, and preserving 1,000 river miles by adding them to the Wild and Scenic Rivers System.... ...The bill, called the Protecting America’s Wilderness and Public Lands Act, has strong support from the Biden administration, in...

    When a dog curls its lip and bares its teeth, you know what sort of dog you’re dealing with. One such dog curled its lip in Massachusetts recently. His name is David Ismay – possibly related to the Bruce Ismay of Titanic fame, but hold that thought. This Ismay wants to “break the will” — his words – of people who rely on gasoline to power their cars and oil and natural gas to heat their homes, in order to “combat climate change.” Of course, Massachusetts is also the state where Obamacare was born, under the governorship of another Republican...
  • Texas Freeze Raises Cost Of Charging A Tesla To $900

    Oil Price ^ | 02/1621 | Charles Kennedy
    The electricity shortage in Texas amid the cold snap has sent spot electricity prices soaring so much that the surge in power prices equals a cost of $900 for charging a Tesla. The typical full charge of a Tesla costs around $18 using a Level 1 or Level 2 charger at home, according to estimates from The Drive. This estimate is based on an average price of $0.14 per kWh of power. However, the extreme winter weather this week has sent Texas spot electricity prices soaring, as the wind turbines froze in the ice storms and reduced the wind power...

    The National Interest ^ | 12/5/2020 | Rachel Bucchino
    The presidential election of 1912 reflected a time of party division and booming progressivism in partisan politics, as former President Theodore Roosevelt led a robust movement of Republicans who opposed reflexive conservatism. Roosevelt, who served as president of the United States from 1901 to 1909, dove into a vigorous presidential campaign for the Progressive Party, or Bull Moose Party, advocating against President William Howard Taft and his leadership. Taft’s presidency triggered Republican party division, prompting Roosevelt to form the Bull Moose Party, a political faction within the Republican party, and made Roosevelt become a prominent third-party candidate on the presidential...

    Washington Post owner and Big Tech mogul Jeff Bezos is looking to make good on his $10 billion “Bezos Earth Fund” eco-extremist pledge to fight climate change. Vox Recode reported that “Bezos has quietly started a new company that appears involved in the historic push” to combat "human-induced" climate change. Specifically, Bezos started a new venture company called Fellowship Ventures LLC, which applied for the “Bezos Earth Fund” trademark in July. According to Recode, this was “a move that suggests the LLC will be key to his plans, or perhaps even run the charitable program outright.”

    Once again Greta Thunberg has demonstrated her PR genius. She just met a researcher from neighboring Norway for a conversation on the border between their two countries. And Greta didn’t waste any time posting the pictures of their meeting on Twitter and Instagram. In one of the photos, the two are seen greeting each other by touching their right feet together over the Morokulien border crossing – without physically entering the other’s country. According to Thunberg, she was interviewing the climate and environmental scientist Per Espen Stoknes for an upcoming BBC documentary series. However, because she was not allowed to...
  • The Sierra Club Decrying 'Racist' Founder Shows the Phoniness of Cancel Culture

    In an era when it is all the rage for businesses and organizations to make bold declarations about recognizing their racial problems, it was hardly surprising when the Sierra Club came forward with its own mea culpa. Among the flood of companies posting their black squares on social media for Blackout Tuesday, the only ones who have managed to stand out are those not bending a knee to the mob. But the fact that the Sierra Club’s introspective outreach was lost in the deluge of other virtue-signaling outlets is illustrative of its superfluousness.  The environmental outfit recently came forward to announce...

    America is currently experiencing something of a revolutionary mood. The toppling of statues, the "cancelation" of journalists and public figures who stray from the new mainstream in their thought, and the speed with which CEOs and boardrooms have caved to online Twitter mobs indicate that a radical cultural shift is taking place. While much ink has been spilled debating the broader meaning of this moment, the seemingly outlandish suggestion by some that we are witnessing the rise of a quasi-spiritual movement, rather than one that is purely political, needs to be taken seriously, as it may help explain some of...
  • Louis-Dreyfus Short Circuits For Joe: Vote Biden Or ‘Octopuses’ Will Be ‘Stuck In Trees’

    Though the biggest hit of the evening was Louis-Dreyfus’ hit on herself, where she – according to a press pool manuscript tweeted by Washington Examiner’s Joe Gabriel Simonson – said something really stupid. Continuing with her environmental shtick, she opined that environmental issues are like a “great octopus” because its tentacles are found in every Democratic policy issue, like “racial justice,” “health care” and “social justice.” In the same way she also called environmentalism a “tree trunk.” The dumbest portion of that thought was when she concluded with the joke, “So it’s like an octopus and a tree and if...

    Last month, I published a book, “Apocalypse Never,” which debunks popular environmental myths. Among them: that humans are causing a sixth mass extinction and that climate change is making natural disasters worse. While I expected my book to be controversial, I didn’t expect CNN’s top climate reporter to compare it to an advertisement for cigarettes. Or to have an environmental journalist with nearly half a million followers on Twitter ­accuse me of promoting “white supremacy.” I’m hardly a climate denier. In fact, I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmental ­activist for more than 30. Governments,...
