  • G-7 to throw out another $200 billion for third-world 'green' boondoggles: Exporting the "German model" of green energy failure

    Amid all the partying and gladhanding and making Vladimir Putin a figure of fun, the G-7 summit in Germany managed to avoid the important topics, such as where the hell greenie Germany is going to get energy from and just what it means when it says it's going to support Ukraine forever. Instead, it moved into its comfort zone, which was "infrastructure" and greenie energy for the Third World, as if the Third World needed more corruption and energy shortages, as greenie Germany is experiencing. Naturally, its idea was to throw money — mostly American money — at the problem....
  • Climate action could be next Democratic priority the Supreme Court takes down (only 8.61 years left)

    Climate regulation could be the next Democratic priority to fall to the Supreme Court. The court released two major decisions this week - on guns and abortion - and is expected to soon rule on a case that has major implications for what powers the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has to regulate climate change. Experts say a court ruling in favor of those seeking to curb the EPA’s authority could stunt the agency’s ability to prevent climate change from worsening. “The more tools the court takes away from the EPA, under the Clean Air Act to address greenhouse gas emissions,...

    President Joe Biden announced that his administration will pledge $200 billion towards a new Global Infrastructure Partnership that includes major health projects like a massive vaccine plant to produce ‘hundreds of millions’ of doses for Covid-19 and other diseases. “For all of our people, not just the G-7, all of our people today, we officially launched the partnership for Global Infrastructure and Investment,” he said. “We collectively have dozens of projects already underway around the globe, and I’m proud to announce the United States will mobilize $200 billion in public and private capital over the next five years for that...
  • Ukraine War’s Latest Victim? The Fight Against Climate Change.

    BERLIN — Russia’s invasion of Ukraine seemed like an unexpected opportunity for environmentalists, who had struggled to focus the world’s attention on the kind of energy independence that renewable resources can offer. With the West trying to wean itself from Russian oil and gas, the argument for solar and wind power seemed stronger than ever. But four months into the war, the scramble to replace Russian fossil fuels has triggered the exact opposite. As the heads of the Group of 7 industrialized nations gather in the Bavarian Alps for a meeting that was supposed to cement their commitment to the...

    What sort of sick, twisted SOB claims to be the uncle of a dead student to play politics? This sort of sick, twisted SOB … that’s who. As Twitchy readers know, Keith Olbermann was pushing some ridiculous story about Gov. Abbott trying to force the family of one of the slain students in the Uvalde shooting to take a picture with him proving they don’t blame him or want guns banned. Yeah, this sounds stupid already, it gets stupider. Well, according to the story shared by the ‘uncle’ of this poor student, the ‘representatives’ Abbott sent became hostile and even...

    Weather disasters that happen more often because of climate change create conditions in which gender-based violence often spikes, according to new research. The study, published in the journal The Lancet Planetary Health, reviewed research from five continents and found increased violence against women and girls in the aftermath of floods, droughts, hurricanes and other extreme weather events that are becoming more frequent as the planet warms. The researchers scoured online databases to find studies on rape, sexual assault, child marriage and other forms of gender-based violence following extreme weather events. Only 41 studies that assessed links between gender-based violence and...

    Major corporations that made a show out of cutting checks to the national Black Lives Matter group in the aftermath of George Floyd's police killing in May 2020 now have nothing to say about the charity's alleged self-dealing. Seventeen corporations that publicly committed at least $100,000 to Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation in the days following Floyd's killing either declined to comment or did not respond to inquiries from the Washington Examiner asking if they approved of the charity's use of their donations to purchase a $6 million mansion in Los Angeles secretly and award lucrative contracts to the...

    On Monday, fending off what threatened to be a crippling blow to growth in the rooftop solar energy industry, President Biden announced a set of executive actions intended to protect the industry. That - if it isn’t successfully challenged in court - may be a modest success in Biden’s effort to transition the U.S. economy into one that runs on clean energy. But such successes have been fewer than what environmentalists had hoped for. Despite assuming office with what activists describe as the most ambitious climate change agenda in history, Biden has experienced a series of setbacks that threaten to...

  • Why US gas prices are at a record, and why they'll stay high for a long time

    Russia's invasion of Ukraine is a major reason that US drivers are paying record prices for gasoline. But it's not the only cause of the spike. Numerous factors are pushing prices up, with regular gasoline hitting a record $4.87 a gallon Monday according to AAA's survey — up 25 cents a gallon in just the last week. Gas prices were already expected to breach the $4 a gallon mark for the first time since 2008, with or without shots fired in Eastern Europe or economic sanctions imposed on Russia. But now the national average is expected to hit $5 a...

    George Orwell’s novella ”Animal Farm” is regarded as one of the great books of Western literature. Orwell’s allegory reveals its epiphany when the pigs, symbols of the Communist ruling class, revise it’s seventh commandment from “All animals are equal” to “All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” Meanwhile the Marxist-affiliated group, Black Lives Matter, is a prime example of life imitating art. Reports that BLM has $42 million in assets, while going on real estate spending sprees for mansions, stock market purchases and other luxuries, should raise the interest of the IRS and other law...

    When President Biden talks, there may or may not be any connection between what he says and the real world. Yes, you need to give every politician some leeway, since most of what any politician says will fall in the general realm of political exaggeration or hyperbole. But even within the disreputable category of politicians, Biden can take the lack of connection with reality to a whole new level. You may have your own favorite among Biden’s preposterous statements. For me, the very most preposterous is one that he has been making repeatedly for the past several months, namely that...

    Police are urging drivers to be on their guardMotorists are being warned by police about a scam that sees con artists try to fleece drivers out of cash. The rouse sees drivers duped into handing over cash for 'damage' that hasn't been caused by them. The warning comes from North Wales Police after an incident in Conwy on Monday. A man driving a Range Rover became a target for the quick cash con. Police for the area said that fraudsters will pretend that their target has damaged their vehicle's wing mirror. They will then demand that the driver pays for...

The second part is expected to be released by summer 2023 The draft reportedly lists recommendations for reparations, including offering free four-year college and raising the minimum wage in predominately black industries It also proposes an office to help African Americans residents to file claims and trace their lineage to prove eligibility for individual restitution African Americans make up nearly six...

    Karl Marx is one of the most well-known deadbeats of 19th century history. So inept (or perhaps incapable) of financial provision, his wife once sold his last pair of pants for food; consistently delinquent on rent, he used fake names to dodge creditors; and in a letter to his friend-turned-sponsor Engels, Marx’s mother wrote, “if only Karl made capital instead of just writing about it.” Given the fact he offered nothing substantial, to either his family or society, it should come as no surprise that he “birthed the toxic tenet of communism.”In his writing, he discussed his hatred for property...

    As the pilot shortage continues to rock the airline industry, carriers are struggling to fulfill their flight schedules, and some are even trying to reduce required training hours to get more pilots in the air. On May 13, Alaska Airlines CEO Ben Minicucci apologized in a YouTube video for continued flight cancellations that have been plaguing the carrier. Minicucci blamed the pilot shortage, saying "we had 63 fewer pilots than what we planned for when we built our scheduled," which caused a "ripple effect." "By the time we caught this error, April and May schedules were bid on by our...

    The Guardian ^ | 5/11/22 | Damian Carrington, Matthew Taylor
    The world’s biggest fossil fuel firms are quietly planning scores of “carbon bomb” oil and gas projects that would drive the climate past internationally agreed temperature limits with catastrophic global impacts, a Guardian investigation shows. The exclusive data shows these firms are in effect placing multibillion-dollar bets against humanity halting global heating. Their huge investments in new fossil fuel production could pay off only if countries fail to rapidly slash carbon emissions, which scientists say is vital. The oil and gas industry is extremely volatile but extraordinarily profitable, particularly when prices are high, as they are at present. ExxonMobil, Shell,...

    President Biden raised the alarm on Sunday about monkeypox, a viral infection fast spreading around the world, and warned that the disease, which can be spread as easily as through handling a contaminated object, is something “that everybody should be concerned about.” Monkeypox, rarely seen outside Africa, has been found in recent weeks in Europe and the United States. As of Saturday, 92 cases and 28 suspected cases had been identified in 12 countries outside of those African nations where it is endemic, according to the World Health Organization. There has been one confirmed case in the United States —...

    xtreme temperatures and ongoing drought could cause the power grid to buckle across vast areas of the country this summer, potentially leading to electricity shortages and blackouts, a US power grid regulator said Wednesday. NERC, a regulating authority that oversees the health of the nation’s electrical infrastructure, says in its 2022 Summer Reliability Assessment that extreme temperatures and ongoing drought could cause the power grid to buckle. High temperatures, the agency warns, will cause the demand for electricity to rise. Meanwhile, drought conditions will lower the amount of power available to meet that demand. “Industry prepares its equipment and operators...
