    In response to your recent December news release statement concerning “Principles for Climate-Related Financial Risk Management for Large Financial Institutions” and request for public comments, I have the following comment to your board. The intended purpose of the Federal Reserve is formulating U.S. monetary policy through the control of currency and interest rates, as well as promoting financial stability through the regulating of financial institutions. If members of the Federal Reserve are so concerned about climate, environmental and energy policies, then I strongly suggest that those members resign from the Federal Reserve. These former members could then simply seek other...

    In a case of odd bedfellows, environmental groups and Republican politicians are calling for a pause in offshore wind farm development following a string of whales washing up dead on New Jersey and New York beaches. Seven whales have turned up dead in little over a month. The latest victim, a 20- to 25-foot juvenile Humpback whale, turned up in Brigantine, New Jersey on Thursday afternoon, close to a Coast Guard station. “The wave of dead whales is the ocean sounding the alarm, and we must heed the warning,” said Cindy Zipf, executive director of Jersey-based Clean Ocean Action, after...

    According to the Rachel Carson Institute, Enviva alone — which currently owns and operates seven plants in the southeastern United States — is responsible for clearcutting 50 acres of southern forestland every day, much of it a mix of hardwoods critical for wildlife habitat and absorbing the carbon dioxide rapidly warming the planet.

    The term "pedestrian" has a derogatory meaning because peasants walked while nobles were "equestrians" and rode horses. The industrial revolution eliminated this class difference, as it did so many others, by making car ownership available to the masses until eventually Herbert Hoover was able to boast that "Republican prosperity has reduced and increased earning capacity” to "put the proverbial 'chicken in every pot' and a car in every backyard to boot." Democrats have spent two generations trying to get those cars out of every backyard. Biden is trying to bring back Obama's mileage standards that were estimated to raise car...

    Over the weekend, a mass of angry Sri Lankan citizens swarmed the presidential palace over an absolute economic collapse in the country, forcing the nation’s prime minister to resign and leading to more civil unrest.There has been a lot of talk over the country’s struggles, but ultimately a lot of the blame comes down to western environmental activism taking hold of the country’s policies and encouraging Sri Lanka to switch how it grows its own food. This has led to smaller crop yields, a massive increase in importing food, and plenty of angry citizens.The problem in Sri Lanka comes from...

    OROVADA, Nev. — Max Wilbert, standing on a hill overlooking a wide plain of brush and farmland, walks over to a black banner that’s grabbed a lot of media attention. In blood-red letters, the banner reads, “Lithium Lies.” Here in Nevada, activists like Wilbert are fighting against the largest lithium mine set for development in the United States. The mine is in the final stages of permits, and the lithium pulled from the ground here could fuel batteries for electric vehicles sold in the United States. But the grassroots movement against the project has been torn apart over an unrelated...

    The eco-extremists at the liberal Guardian should realize by now that the internet is forever. The outlet freaked out over 17 years ago about a frosty future thanks to a ridiculously inaccurate Pentagon prediction. The Guardian published a report in 2004 sounding the alarm bells over a “secret report, suppressed by US defence chiefs” and obtained by sister newspaper The Observer. Here was the harrowing message, according to The Guardian: “[M]ajor European cities will be sunk beneath rising seas as Britain is plunged into a ‘Siberian’ climate by 2020.”

    JAKARTA, Nov 4 (Reuters) - Indonesia's environment minister has dismissed as "inappropriate and unfair" a global plan to end deforestation by 2030, days after her country, home to a third of the world's rainforests, was among more than 100 that made the zero-deforestation pledge. The agreement late on Monday at the COP26 climate talks is at odds with Indonesia's development plans and the global goals should be fine-tuned, said minister Siti Nurbaya Bakar... ...Siti said definitions of deforestation differ widely, so imposing European standards onto Indonesia was unfair...

    The verdict on climate change from the G20 summit is in — somewhat. After two days worth of talks in Rome, world leaders released a joint statement, agreeing "meaningful and effective" action is needed "by all countries" to prevent global temperatures from reaching more than 1.5 degrees Celsius, as previously set forth by the Paris Agreement. ... United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, meanwhile, tweeted he left Rome with his hopes "unfulfilled," though stated he welcomed the "recommitment to global solutions." UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson said only 12 of the 20 G20 members committed to the 2050 pledge, adding the...

    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

    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....

    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...
