    The Koch brothers might be part of buying Time magazine, and a former Time science editor is so panicked he wrote an article for the leftist magazine The Nation titled "Don't Let the Koch Brothers Buy Time Magazine." Charles Alexander wrote about how his life’s work of screaming environmental bias may be about to go down the drain: Can you imagine what it would be like to see your life’s work suddenly go down the drain? I can—right now. As a former Time editor who spent 13 years editing the magazine’s coverage of environmental issues, I am in despair over...

    On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed a massive $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill packed with Democrats climate wish-list items. Democrats passed the bill 233-188 on a mostly party-line vote. Much of the funding tied to actual transportation measures $500 billion is tied to green measures requiring states to set targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for mitigation as if an unspecified climate catastrophe were on the immediate horizon. President Donald Trump slammed the bill, H.R. 2, as full of wasteful Green New Deal initiatives. Naturally this nonsense is not going anywhere in the Senate, Senate Majority...
  • Global warming killed off the Mayans by locking leaders in violent power struggle

    The reason for the collapse of Mayan civilisation has been hotly debated, but now scientists claim they have an answer - climate change. Researchers believe that hot weather made the Mayans more aggressive and therefore likely to fight one another. As crops failed due to the rising temperatures leaders waged war for power which lit the fuse of their eventual demise around 900 AD, the study says. With crops levels low Mayan leaders could no longer rely on brash festivals or building projects to keep their sujects happy. So they resorted to power struggles and war instead which finished the...

    People living in Denmark will need to sort their recycling into ten different containers, under a new deal that aims to cut 0.7m tonnes of emissions and make the countrys waste sector carbon neutral by 2030. Denmarks climate minister Dan Jrgensen said that, with the average Danish resident throwing away 800 kg of waste into general recycling a year, people in the country were worse than the European average, which is 490 kg. [] Under the agreement, which has the support of all parties except for the Danish Peoples Party and the New Right Party, Denmarks municipalities have half a...

    If these predictions come to pass, their fulfillment will have lasting effects upon America in the 2020s and beyond. In 2008, as the Obama administration prepared to take control in Washington, retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey offered a list of bold predictions for the coming five years. Some of them bore out: The economy performed well globally despite the Great Recession, relations with Russia became more hostile without devolving into outright dysfunction, and the United States withdrew from Iraq right at the 36-month mark, which McCaffrey specified. Other predictions, such as a North Korean collapse, improved prospects for success in...

    A sneak peek at the Timess news analysis from Nov. 4, 2020. Nov. 4, 2020 In the end, a bitterly fought election came down to the old political aphorism, popularized during Bill Clintons successful 1992 run against George H.W. Bush: Its the economy, stupid. This time, however, it was the Republican incumbent, not his Democratic challenger, who benefited from that truism. Donald J. Trump has been decisively re-elected as president of the United States, winning every state he carried in 2016 and adding Nevada, even as he once again failed, albeit narrowly, to gain a majority of the popular vote....

    We are one year away from America's moment of truth. January 1, 2020 will mark 2020---and the 2020s---the new decade. November 3, 2020 will mark America's Judgement Day---Does Trump get reelected? Or will the Democrats take over? My prediction: Democrats: Elizabeth Warren/Tim Ryan vs. Republicans: Pres.

  • Meet Bug-Eating, Urine-Drinking TV Outdoorsman Bear Grylls, Obamas Unlikely Hiking Buddy

    09/03/2015 12:42:13 AM PDT · by nickcarraway · 40 replies
    As far as hiking buddies go, Barack Obama and Bear Grylls make for an unlikely pairing. Grylls is a TV outdoorsman with a flair for drama and a propensity for drinking his own urine. Obama is cerebral and stolidly even-keeled, and, you know, the president of the United States. Nevertheless, the strange duo is slated for some bonding Tuesday while hiking the Exit Glacier, a south Alaskan river of ice that has shrunk by 1.25 miles in recent decades. They have no plans to drink urine, Grylls has confirmed, and the adventurers usually madcap exploits will be scaled down to...

    Airbnb co-founder and CEO Brian Chesky told Axios in an interview that global travel may never fully recover, and that he sees a future where people travel much more within their own countries, possibly for longer stays. Driving the news: "I will go on the record to say that travel will never, ever go back to the way it was pre-COVID; it just won't," Chesky told us by Zoom from his home in San Francisco. "There are sometimes months when decades of transformation happen."

    On Behalf of Environmentalists, I Apologise for the Climate Scare, said an article published in Forbes magazine by Mike Shellenberger. At least it did, till Forbes caved to furious green activists and pulled it within hours of publication. By arguing that climate change is real but not the end of the world and not even our most serious environmental problem, Shellenberger had been found guilty of wrongthink.

    he 2020 election will be decided in the fall by swing voters in ten or 15 states. Prior to the COVID-19 outbreak, those voters were leaning to reelect President Trump, largely on the powers of incumbency and a near-record vibrant economy. The Democratic left-wing primary agendas, from the New Green Deal to reparations, the clownish candidates of the Beto ORourke and Corey Booker sort, the arrogance and meltdown of Mike Bloomberg, and Joe Bidens cognitive impairment collectively frightened voters. Meanwhile, the booming economy, record energy production, record-low minority unemployment and reckoning with China had overshadowed Trumps cul de sac tweeting,...

    On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. Its just not the end of the world. Its not even our most serious environmental problem. I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30. But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next...

    After months of national unrest, it seems incredibly clich to write the words, "These are extraordinary times. Nevertheless, out-of-touch statements, actions, and proposals spewing from the mouths of Democratic politicians and their millionaire financiers have made the repetition of these words necessary. While Democrats adamancy about keeping Americans out of work through overzealous lockdown orders has received considerable media attention, it doesnt even represent the worst or most harmful of their current proposals that will economically harm consumers. On the campaign trail, they continue to push policies that lack sensitivity to the ongoing economic pain faced throughout the country and...

As part of a new series about her campaigning made for Swedish radio during the coronavirus lockdown, Thunberg revealed the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, had waited to have a selfie with the teenager at a U.N. climate gathering in New York. It was in the U.N. she delivered her how dare you speech. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words, she told the gathered world leaders. On the radio...

    WASHINGTON (AFP) Eating less meat will not reduce global warming, and claims that it will distract from efforts to find real solutions to climate change, a leading air quality expert said Monday. "We certainly can reduce our greenhouse gas production, but not by consuming less meat and milk," Frank Mitloehner, an air quality expert at the University of California-Davis, said as he presented a report on meat-eating and climate change at a conference of the American Chemical Society in California. Blaming cows and pigs for climate change is scientifically inaccurate, said Mitloehner, dismissing several reports, including one issued in...

    Raqqa, Syria Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, also known as ISIS, announced today that he would be disbanding all forces and returning all land to Syria and Iraq. The move was prompted by the ongoing Climate Conference in Paris. "This is one thing we could not have anticipated," Mr. al-Baghdadi said in prepared remarks. "When we see the world coming together like this on such a dangerous subject as Global Climate Change, we realize that our Caliphate will never survive. It's only a matter of time before Climate Change is no...

    First there was Michael Moores Planet of the Humans, then came Bjorn Lomborgs False Alarm, and now Michael Schellenbergers Apocalypse Never. All three authors sound the common theme that the hyper-green environmental activists who have captured, politicized, and monetized the concern for the environment have, as Lomborg explains, created a false climate alarm which has costs us trillions, hurts the poor, and fails to fix the planet. To varying degrees, all three authors come from a strong environmental activist background, which observation makes their public revelations even more noteworthy. Planet of the Humans, the recent film produced by Michael Moore,...

    A $1 billion solar plant approved in 2011 never delivered what it promised and closed last year. Solar farms are the new frontier in energy, with falling costs and myriad benefits. A combination of terrible management and simple technological advancement turned the plant into a dinosaur. ======================================================================= Bloomberg reports that a planned $1 billion solar plant was out of date and obsolete before it could even be completed. The Crescent Dunes plant opened outside of Las Vegas in 2015, when its technology was already behind, and the solar boom since then has completely eclipsed it. Now, the closed and...
