    White House climate aide Jane Lubchenco was sanctioned by the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) today for violating its code of conduct, Axios reported Tuesday. Lubchenco, who is the deputy director for climate and environment at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, violated the NAS’ ethics policies prior to her involvement with the White House, Axios reported. Lubchenco edited a paper that was eventually retracted from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) due to technical errors in the analysis, as well as the fact that Lubchenco had previously worked with the scientists involved, one...
  • White House climate official sanctioned by key science body [NAS]

    The National Academy of Sciences has barred Jane Lubchenco, a key White House climate aide, from involvement in NAS publications and activities for five years for violating its code of conduct before joining the administration, the organization said. Why it matters: The move represents a significant rebuke to Lubchenco, who is deputy director for climate and environment at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy. Driving the news: The NAS, the most prestigious science body in the U.S., said the decision, effective Aug. 8, stems from section 3 of its code of conduct. It states that members "shall...
  • Leftist Calls For A ‘Meat Tax’ Reach Fever Pitch

    As President Joe Biden signs the largest climate package in American history, some leftist’s are bothered by policymakers’ hesitance to create a tax on meat. Democratic lawmakers have long claimed that excrement produced by livestock and poultry farming — “farting cows,” as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) once put it — have an outsized impact on global temperatures. Discussion about crafting new disincentives for meat consumption resurfaced as the Inflation Reduction Act advanced through Congress after months of gridlock. Vox reporter Kenny Torrella, for instance, noted that the Inflation Reduction Act devotes 5% of its funds toward “changing farming practices” while...

    Even before Russia invaded Ukraine, Germany’s decision to shut down its three remaining nuclear plants made no sense. But since the invasion Germany has very gradually been coming around to the idea that it might be time to reconsider those decisions. That’s especially true ever since Russia cut off most of the natural gas it was supplying to Russia in June.Today, it appears Germany has finally turned a corner. The Wall Street Journal reports plans to close the remaining nuclear plants are likely to be postponed.The decision has yet to be formally adopted by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s cabinet and...

    Ramaswamy says his initiative aims to combat the woke ESG movement impacting Corporate America Entrepreneur and author Vivek Ramaswamy says his newly-launched fund aimed to bolster U.S. energy production has already raised over $100 million. Last week, Ramaswamy's Ohio-based asset management firm Strive unveiled an exchange-traded fund DRLL which aims to be an energy index fund to combat the woke ESG movement that has stifled American energy. In a press release obtained by Fox News Digital, DRLL "exceeded $100 million in assets under management (AUM) and over $160 million in traded volume in its first full week of launch. "This...

    Dodge’s V8-powered muscle cars are nearing the end of the assembly line. The automaker has announced that production of the current Challenger and Charger will end in December 2023 before they are replaced by a new electric vehicle platform. The Charger sedan has been in production at the automaker’s Brampton, Canada, factory since 2005, where the Challenger coupe joined it in 2008. Over three billion horsepower-worth of cars have been built since. Dodge is having a blowout celebration for both models with a slew of special editions and options, along with the installation of a commemorative "Last Call" badge under...

    Until we can break the false climate change mindset, we are dooming America to a miserable existence. Once upon a time when things went terribly wrong in the world, it was believed to be the work of the gods who were, for some reason, displeased with humanity. Droughts, floods, tornados, hurricanes, blizzards, and even heat waves were attributed to a vengeful god. Those beliefs are now thought to be nonsense. Instead, our entire economy and American lifestyle are being overturned in pursuit of a new nonsensical faux-religious belief system. Today we are told that it is we who are the...

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) — Secretary-General Antonio Guterres announced the appointment Monday of Simon Stiell from the Caribbean island nation of Grenada as the new U.N. climate chief, calling him, “a true champion” of creative approaches to tackling the global climate crisis. Stiell, who originally trained in the United Kingdom as an engineer and earned an MBA there, was a senior member in Grenada’s government from 2013 until June 2022, serving as minister for climate resilience and the environment for five years. Prior to joining the government, he spent 14 years in the technology sector, holding senior executive positions in industry...
  • The Basic Math Problem that Undoes Global Warming Hysteria: If the climate alarmists truly believe there is a climate emergency, then they should be able to solve this one

    If someone proposes a solution to an "existential problem" that has no chance of success, should we be forced to take the problem seriously? If the climate alarmists truly believe there is a climate emergency, then they should be able to answer the first basic question about "the plan." Are the numbers in the plan even remotely achievable? Remember: based on their screeching, we have only twelve years before we all die from "man-made climate change." To answer that question, let's break part of the plan into the most basic math problem: can we replace 25%, 50%, or 75% of...

    (Reuters) - The Bureau of Land Management will pause oil and gas leasing on 2.2 million acres of Colorado public land after environmental groups alleged its current management plan failed to consider climate impacts, according to a settlement. The agreement was filed Thursday in Colorado federal court and requires the government to conduct a new environmental analysis of the climate impacts of oil and gas leasing on public lands in southwestern Colorado. The government also agreed to consider how the leases may impact the endangered Gunnison sage- grouse and its habitat. The Sierra Club, Center for Biological Diversity and others...

    The world hasn’t seen commercial supersonic travel in nearly 20 years since the Concorde was retired in 2003, but all that is about to change with the development of a new, environmentally friendly airliner. Meet Overture – the world’s fastest airliner that was developed by Denver-based Boom Supersonic. With 26 million hours of designing and testing, Overture will run on 100% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) as it flies at Mach 1.7 over the ocean, shuttling between 68-80 passengers up to nearly 5,000 miles. The updated design features four engines that will keep weight and temperature balanced, which will also lower...

    The Globalists want everyone to believe that we as a planet are facing an “existential threat” from global warming and we will all die if we don’t eat bugs and live in crammed “smart cities” to save it. In reality, many scientists who are not paid off by the elites who pay for the results they want, agree that the world is nowhere near as bad as they are trying to make out it is – the only existential threat to humanity, are the Globalists themselves. According to a rarely referenced dataset from the Natural Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA),...
  • Now it's 'mega-floods' that will destroy the whole world: Climate change zealots agin have something new to wring their hands (and your wallet) about.

    This time, it is mega-floods in California replacing mega-droughts, and again they are supposedly caused by us and fossil fuels. Not once do journalists give a damn that their previous dire predictions have been 100% false. To the compliant, complicit media, and other Democrats, floods, droughts, too much snow, too little snow, record cold, record warmth are all caused by us, instead of cyclical and natural. The solution is always bigger government and more control of our lives. It is arrogant and ignorant for anyone to pretend they can control temperatures, sea levels, and storm activities if we just hand...
  • How the Germans deal with the eco-mob! Riot police crack down on green protesters trying to bring Hamburg to a standstill by using batons, pepper spray and water cannon

    German police employed batons, pepper spray and water cannons against a group of eco-zealots on Saturday as they staged a sit-down protest on a major railway supply line in Hamburg. Dozens of protesters, led by the eco-mob Ende Gelande - which translates to 'here and no further' - attempted to disrupt the major northern city by blockading the Kattwyk Railway Bridge, which leads to the nearby harbour. Ahead of their action, Extinction Rebellion, who were also involved, said: 'We are blocking a central hub of German foreign trade here to draw attention to the consequences of modern colonialism.' The sit-down...

    Climate activists in southern France have filled golf course holes with cement to protest against the exemption of golf greens from water bans amid the country's severe drought. The group targeted sites near the city of Toulouse, calling golf the "leisure industry of the most privileged". The exemption of golf greens has sparked controversy as 100 French villages are short of drinking water. Golf officials say greens would die in three days without water. "A golf course without a green is like an ice-rink without ice," Gérard Rougier of the French Golf Federation told the France Info news website. He...

    Water levels have dropped in major rivers across Europe as the region suffers under a historic drought. In those dry riverbeds, centuries-old warning messages have emerged, locals report. The “horrifying” boulders are known as “Hungersteine,” or “Hunger Stones,” local German reporter Olaf Koens said in an Aug. 11 tweet. One of these stones is embedded in the Elbe River, which runs from the mountains of Czechia through Germany to the North Sea, POLITICO journalist Aitor Hernández-Morales tweeted the same day. The stone, dating back to a drought in 1616, is once again visible in the dry riverbed, Hernández-Morales said. The...

    On Friday’s broadcast of HBO’s “Real Time,” host Bill Maher praised the climate provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act but noted that climate activists have “thrown around these numbers forever.” And said that back in the 1990s “we were already going to die” if numbers reached levels they’ve already reached. Maher began by saying that President Joe Biden “just signed the biggest climate bill ever. Finally, we’re doing something about climate.”

    If you have followed my reporting you probably know about the protests happening in the Netherlands. Tens of thousands of farmers have taken to the streets to protest against new climate goals which will force farmers to shut down their farms. They have set hay bales on fire on motorways and dumped manure and even blocked supermarket distribution centers. According to calculations done by the Finance ministry, a whopping 11 200 livestock farmers will be forced to shut down by the government to reduce nitrogen emissions in order to meet European environmental rules. Another 17 600 farmers would need to...

    It can be frustrating engaging in a discussion where facts are denied or distorted. Equally frustrating is dealing with beliefs that are treated as facts and dependent on sound bites. Climate change is one such topic. Climate change is a given. The Earth has never had a stable climate, which can be verified by scientific evidence. The relevant question involves the level of impact human activity is having on the climate. The information that follows is a fraction of that collected over more than ten years. Let's organize the discussion by considering three questions. a) What is the goal of...
