    (Reuters) - Al Gore said on Wednesday that the climate crisis was getting worse faster than world is tackling it and that he supported the recent action taken by Greta Thunberg in Germany. "We are not winning. The crisis is still getting worse faster than we are deploying these solutions," the former U.S. Vice-President said. Gore also said during a session of the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos that he agreed with efforts by climate activist Thunberg to prevent the expansion of a coal mine in Germany.

Police told the BBC Ms Thunberg was not arrested and would be released after they checked her ID. The Swedish activist was detained after a group "rushed towards the ledge" of the Garzweiler 2 mine, police said.

    German police reportedly removed 20-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg from the site of a mass protest over the demolition of an abandoned village for the expansion of a coal mine. Thunberg, a self-proclaimed Swedish "autistic climate justice advocate," joined thousands of demonstrators who showed up Saturday to protest the clearance of the hamlet of Luetzerath, walking through the nearby village of Keyenberg and past muddy fields in western Germany...
  • 'Burn everything': Poland chokes on the smog of war

    In search of cleaner country air a Polish family swapped the busy city streets of Krakow for this - the village of Olpiny, nestled in the Carpathian foothills. The Tkacuks family made the leap back in 2018. But now, with the war in Ukraine and the cutting off of Russian gas supplies, Julia Tkaczuk's quest to bring her three children up in a less polluted environment is proving harder than thought. Local authorities have postponed a ban on the dirtiest stoves for heating, and last month air pollution in the village exceeded the norms by fourfold. "There was just such...
  • Small Lakes Keep Growing Across The Planet, And It's a Serious Problem

    A new study has revealed that small lakes on Earth have expanded considerably over the last four decades – a worrying development, considering the amount of greenhouse gases freshwater reservoirs emit. Between 1984 and 2019, global lake surfaces increased in size by more than 46,000 square kilometers (17,761 square miles), researchers say. That's slightly more than the area covered by Denmark. Carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and other gasses are constantly produced from lakes, because of the bacteria and fungi feeding at the bottom of the water, snacking on dead plants and animals that have drifted down to the lake...
  • Greta Thunberg says she has daily ‘laughing attacks’ and says her Asperger’s helps her see through ‘bulls**t’

    “People seem to think of me as an angry teenager,” she told the publication. “They obviously haven't met me. At least two or three times a day I get laughing attacks where I can't breathe. It can be anything. If I’m in a room with people, they suddenly realise I’m not breathing and ask me if I’m OK and it’s because I can’t stop! The teen reckons her Asperger’s Syndrome helps her quickly get to the truth of the matter and cut through the soundbites often given by politicians when it comes to climate change.

    A teen eco-warrior is going viral for a live radio interview in which she ripped people flying to vacation hotspots like Fiji — before admitting she’d just got back from that exact trip with her family. Izzy Cook, 16, left NewstalkZB host Heather du Plessis-Allan laughing hysterically with her admission Friday while discussing the Greta Thunberg -inspired School Strike 4 Climate she is leading in Wellington, New Zealand. During the chat, the teen environmentalists pushed a plan for people to have to apply to take gas-guzzling flights and only for approved events. When her interviewer asked if people would be...
  • Coal rush! Energy crisis fires global hunt for polluting fuel

    DAR ES SALAAM (Reuters) - The sleepy Tanzanian port of Mtwara mainly dealt in cashew nuts until late last year. Now it bustles with vessels loading up with coal, as Russia's invasion of Ukraine drives a worldwide race for the polluting fuel. Tanzania traditionally exports thermal coal only to neighbouring countries in east Africa; sending it further afield was out of the question, as it required trucking the material more than 600 km from mines in its southwest to Mtwara, the nearest Indian Ocean port. Europe's crippling energy crisis has changed all that. Prices for thermal coal, used to generate...

    Constitutional law expert Alan Dershowitz told Newsmax Wednesday that the photo of classified materials at Mar-a-Lago that the Department of Justice attached to a 36-page motion it filed late Tuesday night shows it is selectively editing what it releases to the public. "It proves one thing: that they're cherry-picking what they release," Dershowitz said during an appearance on Newsmax's "The Record With Greta Van Susteren." "This is classified material, and they're putting it out and giving it to our enemies because they want to — because they can. On the other hand, they redact other material." "They know that The...

    Germany took emergency measures on June 19, 2022 to secure its energy supply in the face of recent drops in Russian gas deliveries, including a “bitter” use of the most polluting energy, coal. BERLIN—Germany will restart coal-fired power plants and offer incentives for companies to curb natural gas consumption, marking a new step in the economic war between Europe and Russia. Berlin unveiled the measures Sunday after Russia cut gas supplies to Europe last week as it punched back against European sanctions and military support for Ukraine. The steps, part of a broader strategy initiated after the invasion of Ukraine,...

    At Greece's largest coal mine, controlled explosions and the roar of giant excavators scooping up blasted rock have once again become routine. Coal production has been ramped up at the site near the northern Greek city of Kozani as the war in Ukraine forced many European nations to rethink their energy supplies. Coal, long treated as a legacy fuel in Europe, is now helping the continent safeguard its power supply and cope with the dramatic rise in natural gas prices caused by the war. Electricity generated by coal in the European Union jumped by 19% in the fourth quarter of...

    LISBON, Portugal (AP) — High energy costs are stoking unrest in parts of Europe, with Spain deploying more than 23,000 police officers amid a truckers’ strike Friday and farmers in France and Greece snarling traffic with their protests. Russia’s war in Ukraine has further pushed up costs for oil and natural gas in Europe, driving record inflation and making it ever more expensive for farmers and truckers to fuel their equipment and vehicles, afford fertilizer or keep up with other costs. In Europe, which is dependent on Russian oil and natural gas, the war worsened an energy supply crunch that...

    Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg’s group Fridays for Future launched a series of rallies to protest Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The group said it plans to hold events in over 40 cities around the world. Fridays for Future specializes in “youth strikes” that involve students marching out of their classrooms to demand action on their climate change agenda. The same technique will evidently be used for the protests against Russia. “We are running a demonstration at 12 p.m., in the middle of the day, because the lives of the Ukrainian people have been stopped, not by their choice. We also...

    Media darling Greta Thunberg has agreed that she’s “just saying blah blah blah” on climate change in a BBC interview, arguing “that’s the role of an activist”. The autistic teen, whose otherwise unremarkable refusal to attend school on Fridays to protest climate change was elevated to global prominence by world leaders who took it upon themselves to have her address the United Nations and national parliaments when she was just 15, is enjoying a resurgence in her public visibility ahead of the United Nations COP26 climate conference in Glasgow, Scotland.

He has removed the trip from his schedule. But if he is not going - Father Thomas Reese, former editor of the Jesuit weekly “America,” proposed to his confrere Pope - why not include Greta Thunberg in the Vatican delegation? Why not give none other than her the pope’s seat? Not outside the conference, to demonstrate with the people oppressed by the politicians’ vacuous...

    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...
