    On Earth Day 2021 — on Thursday, April 22 — climate activist Greta Thunberg will testify before Congress during a special hearing dedicated to conservation and climate change initiatives. Politico reports that Thunberg, aged 18, will testify before a House Oversight Committee panel within the hearing “The Role of Fossil Fuel Subsidies in Preventing Action on the Climate Crisis.” The hearing will be led by the Oversight Environmental Subcommittee Chair Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) The subcommittee has jurisdiction over climate change, environmental protection, public lands, endangered species, air and water quality, international accords, energy policy and research, among other relevant topics....
  • France to ban domestic flights where trains are available, in move to cut emissions

    France is set to ban short domestic flights in favor of train services, after lawmakers approved a plan that will see several air routes discontinued to reduce emissions. MPs voted late on Saturday to some suspend some flights by domestic airlines that can be made by train in less than two-and-a-half hours, as part of a wider climate bill. If the bill passes through France’s upper house, the Senate, France will join a number of European countries seeking to move away from short flights. But some have criticized President Emmanuel Macron for watering down proposals from his own environmental panel,...

    Angry utility customers in places like Grand Valley and Grand Mesa pen poison letters: “It’s a monopoly! Reduce obscene CEO pay!”. When Grand Valley Power CEO Tom Walch gets worked up explaining what he sees as the avarice and ignorance of Xcel Energy and worries he is not conveying his rage, he pulls out a letter from an angry co-op customer and starts reading. “They shouldn’t unload this blunder on customers who happen to be on their electrical grid,” Walch recites. “This is going to hurt a lot of businesses here and elsewhere that are already hurting due to the...

  • Pope to World Bank: We Need to Calculate Our 'Ecological Debt,' so 'Developed Countries Can Pay It'

    In a letter to the spring meeting of the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, Pope Francis called for the creation of new institutions of “global governance” to help advance the “integral human development of all peoples.” He also said the “financial industry” should calculate the “ecological debt” of countries “so that developed countries can pay it.…” We cannot “overlook another kind of debt: the ‘ecological debt’ that exists, especially between the global north and south,” said the Pope in his April 8 letter. “We are, in fact, in debt to nature itself, as well as the people and...

    President Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan packs a huge amount of potential for Nevada to improve and enhance our roads and bridges, turbocharge our economy, blunt the worsening effects of climate change, fuel significant growth in long-term employment and improve the lives of working families in our state. Among its elements, the $2.3 trillion package provides $200 billion for traffic infrastructure and public transportation, $25 billion to upgrade airports, $174 billion to stoke the proliferation of electric vehicles, $213 billion to weatherize homes in middle- and low-income areas as well as building and preserving affordable housing, $300 billion for manufacturing and...
  • An anti–global warming hysteria book is driving Norwegian warming hysterics nuts

    "The book is brilliant, very easily read," says Morten Jødal, Climate Realists chairman of the board. Mr. Wrightstone’s rebuttal has been published in Norwegian newspapers, and distribution of the book to mayors will proceed in a few weeks, reports Mr. Jødal, a biologist and author of Environmental Myths, another book that critiques the global warming fraud. Formerly head of the University of Oslo’s Center for Environment and Development, Mr. Jødal says, "Slowly, slowly I realized that the environmental movement is not competent. I started waking up to the fact that many environmental crises being described do not exist." Why would...

    Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.Were we not to take it for granted it would seem a miracle, the sun - glowing, growing, lighting, warming. Every day, a new sunrise.And everyday, just as reliably, sunset.So the cycle can start over again; God’s gift to earth. Sometimes you’re heading into the daybreak.Just as often you catch day’s end in your rearview mirror.But what we know intuitively is that the sun is our friend. It warms the earth that grows the food that provides us sustenance. And now it seems it kills the...

    As TFTP reported last year, it was reported that the top climate change scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration received $4 million in funding from Congress along with permission to study two highly controversial geoengineering methods in an attempt to cool the Earth. According to Science Magazine, David Fahey, director of the Chemical Sciences Division of NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory, told his staff last week that the federal government is ready to examine the science behind “geoengineering”—or what he dubbed a “Plan B” for climate change.

    Perhaps you are amazed at the millions of people who have bought into the idea that the gradually increasing level of a trace atmospheric gas (CO2, currently about 0.04% of the atmosphere) is going to bring about world climate doom a hundred or so years from now. You may be even more amazed at the similarly large numbers of people who seem to think that the salvation from this doom is to be found in bringing lawsuits against various companies that produce fossil fuels and getting some court somewhere to order that the companies do . . . what exactly?...

    Maybe the only good thing about covid hysteria is that it has, for a while, drowned out global warming hysteria. Still, many people have the impression that global temperatures have warmed alarmingly in recent decades. Unfortunately, there is no reliable record of surface temperatures for a number of reasons, including the fact that the activists who are in charge of the records keep changing them to promote the alarmist position. But that is all right, since warming due to carbon dioxide doesn’t occur at the surface, it occurs in the atmosphere. The only reliable, unfudged record we have of global...

    Bitcoin Magazine ^ | 3-25-21 | Evan Bayless
    By using energy to validate transactions in a way that is independent of any existing grid or source, Bitcoin mining will save the climate. It’s in vogue to think that Bitcoin is accelerating the climate crisis. The common argument is that Bitcoin uses lots of energy, which must mean more carbon emissions, so as a result, it’s ruining the climate. Of course, critics also seem enraged at Bitcoin itself, believing it doesn’t do anything useful beyond facilitating a casino for Reddit memelords and “libertarian nerds” to get rich in. To these critics, Bitcoin is a totally useless, degenerate system that...

    John Kerry is holding out hope that China will cooperate with US efforts to grapple with climate change — despite contentious relations between the two nations. “Our hope is that we’re going to be able to deal with yes, China,” Kerry, the Biden administration’s Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, told reporters in Dubai on Saturday. “President Biden has made it clear and I’ve made it clear,” he said. “None of the other issues we have with China — and there are issues — is held hostage to or is engaged in a trade for what we need to do on...
  • Melting Ice Sheets 14,600 Years Ago Caused Seas to Rise 10 Times Faster Than Today

    Current models used by many climate scientists estimate global sea levels could rise by between 1 and 2 meters by the end of this century. The Durham researchers used detailed geological sea-level data and state-of-the-art modeling techniques to reveal the sources of the dramatic five-century sea level rising event. Comparable to melting an ice sheet twice the size of Greenland, it resulted in the flooding of vast areas of low-lying land and disrupted ocean circulation, with knock-on effects for global climate, they said. "Our study includes novel information from lakes around the coast of Scotland that were isolated from the...

    The United States Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg was caught on video Thursday unloading a bike from an SUV just moments before riding the bike a short distance to his destination, to make it look like the 'environmentalist' was saving energy, in an epic virtue signal fail. A person off camera can even be heard questioning why the Biden administration official would be wearing a suit while bike riding. Buttigieg has been at the forefront of advocating for President Joe Biden to implement new taxes on transportation, including taxing individual’s based on the amount of distance they have driven as...

    A £24,000 statue of Greta Thunberg installed at a university has sparked anger among students who have branded it a “vanity project”. The University of Winchester believes it is the world’s first life-sized sculpture of the “inspirational” Swedish environmental activist. But the students’ union said the funds could have been better spent. The university said “no money was diverted” from student support or staffing for the project. President of Winchester Student Union Megan Ball described Thunberg as a “fantastic role model to everyone, as someone who speaks loudly and proudly about important global issues”, but said the union could not...

    A new prototype solar panel from the Technical Institute of Copenhagen (TIC) promises to be a game changer for renewable energy prospects....Traditional solar panels work by intercepting photons. Naturally the Earth is opaque to photons, so at night the panels are useless. But the Sun emits another kind of particle that shines right through the Earth, even at night: solar neutrinos....neutrinos pass through the Earth, they do change on their way through – a bit like the way white light is changed into a rainbow as it passes through a triangular prism.” Keying in on this relationship, Pierrot was able...

    ..... Scaling up You can think about the oceans as a gigantic bathtub. More than 70% of the Earth’s surface is ocean, giving this bathtub an area of about 140 million square miles. To figure out how much the water will rise, we need to know the volume of people sitting in it and divide it by this ocean area. Currently, there are almost 8 billion people on Earth. Human beings come in all sizes, from tiny babies to large adults. Let’s assume the average size is 5 feet tall – a bit bigger than a child – with an...
