    Activists in the Pacific Northwest have warned for years that communities of color and other marginalized groups are disproportionately impacted by the effects of climate change, and less well-positioned to take advantage of jobs and other benefits likely to result as the region’s economy moves away from fossil fuels. For evidence, look no further than the fire that ripped through southern Oregon last September. People in the relatively affluent town of Ashland received faster and clearer warnings to evacuate than people in less-well-off towns nearby, say grassroots-organizing groups in the area. “People were clueless and our Spanish-speaking community was left...

    I am about ready to go to bed but I want to post this before I retire for the evening. I just finished watching Coach Carter starring Samual Jackson and I thought it was a good movie. However, during the end of the film I had a thought. Movies that Hollywood have put out over the years - Coach Carter, Hoosiers, The Incredibles, the majority of the superhero films, etc. - a lot of successful movies portray conservative principles - hard work, honesty, success based on personal achievement. We are told, that the majority of Hollywood are liberals, yet some...

    The “Great Reset”: The same old “New World Order” - Third Wave bringing in a multi-tribal global cult​ “That which has been is that which shall be; and that which has been done is that which shall be done; and there is no new thing under the sun.

    Mattel is celebrating Women's History Month with a fitting new addition to the Barbie family: An Eleanor Roosevelt doll. Ahead of International Women's Day on Monday, Barbie announced that Eleanor Roosevelt is the latest historical role model to join its "Inspiring Women" series, which helps fund women-led research on media representation. The Dream Gap project attempts to address bias in the classroom, internalized racial bias and inequities in representation. The longest-serving first lady, Roosevelt served in the White House during her husband Franklin D. Roosevelt's terms in office, from 1933 to 1945. Known for her humanitarian work, the United Nations...
  • The Democrats Have a Secret Plan to Get a $15 Minimum Wage

    As Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee said, “We couldn’t get in the front door or the back door, so we’ll try to go in through the window.” He claimed that, “The American people elected Democrats to get things done, and they aren’t going to accept ‘process’ as an excuse for failing to [enact a $15 minimum wage].”​ The “process” that Sen. Wyden brushes aside as an “excuse” refers to a U.S. law that governs what can be included in budget reconciliation bills that bypass the Senate Filibuster and thus allow for a simple fifty-one-vote...

    WASHINGTON - President Joe Biden and Democrats in Congress are jamming their agenda forward with a sense of urgency, an unapologetically partisan approach based on the calculation that it’s better to advance the giant COVID-19 rescue package and other priorities than waste time courting Republicans who may never compromise. The coronavirus pandemic is driving the crush of legislative action, but so are the still-raw emotions from the U.S. Capitol siege and the hard lessons of the last time Democrats had the sweep of party control of Washington. Republicans are mounting blockades of Biden’s agenda just as they did during the...

    James Altucher was savaged for a piece he wrote last year in the New York Post called “New York City is Dead Forever.” New Yorkers hated the implication that the city lacked the necessary fight or resilience to come back from an extremely terrible run. New York has made many dramatic comebacks in the past. It’s almost a staple of the way the city operates: Democratic mayor ruins the city, Republican mayor squelches corruption and fixes the city, creating good times and leading to a new Democratic mayor who ruins the city again, and so on. La vie continue. But...

    New York Times economist Paul Krugman attacked capitalism for promoting “too much choice” for American consumers. One pro-market economist wasn’t going to let him get away with it. Krugman decried in a new op-ed headlined “Too Much Choice is Hurting America” how the American economy has become too complex. Krugman used subprime mortgages, electricity contracts and health insurance as examples of how too many choices have created a “cognitive burden” on America’s poor. Krugman pontificated that “the next time some politician tries to sell a new policy — typically deregulation — by claiming that it will increase choice, be skeptical....

    Paris (AFP) -- Global CO2 emissions have returned to pre-pandemic levels and then some, threatening to put climate treaty targets for capping global warming out of reach, the International Energy Agency said Tuesday. Energy-related emissions were two percent higher in December 2020 than in the same month a year earlier, driven by economic recovery and a lack of clean energy policies, the IEA said in a report. "The rebound in global carbon emissions toward the end of last year is a stark warning that not enough is being done to accelerate clean energy transitions worldwide," IEA executive director Fatih Birol...

    HERSHEY, Pa. -- The Hershey Company today announced new commitments to advance its environmental progress and contribute to global climate action. Hershey has set ambitious new goals to reduce its global emissions in line with the global best practice of the Paris Climate Agreement, to limit global temperature rise to 1.5°C. "Climate change is one of the most urgent threats to our planet that we face today. In order to deliver on our purpose to make more moments of goodness, we must operate with sustainability at the forefront and commit to doing our part to address climate change," said Michele...

    The numbers paint a daunting picture. In 2019, consumers worldwide bought 64 million new personal cars and 27 million new commercial motor vehicles, a paltry 2.1 million of which were electric-powered. Climate scientists tell us that we have less than a decade to make meaningful reductions in carbon emissions — including those from internal combustion engines — if we have any hope of staving off the worst effects of global warming. Yet manufacturers are still making, and consumers are still buying, overwhelming numbers of vehicles that will, on average, continue to spew carbon into the atmosphere for a dozen years...

    In the 1970s and 1980s, furor arose over our possible use of the “neutron bomb” that macabrely would “kill people, but not destroy property.” The logic of the perverse weapon was that on allied and friendly European ground, outnumbered defensive NATO troops might radiate and destroy invading masses of Soviet armored troops by periodic detonations of low-yield thermonuclear shells, rockets, and bombs.

    A citizens’ council on climate met for the last time over the weekend to finalise proposals on climate change laws aimed at rapidly transitioning to a greener economy and enshrining the fight for climate change in the French constitution. While some view President Emmanuel Macron’s citizens' panel as a welcome precedent and a model for more direct democracy, others say it has been fraught with disappointment and frustration. After nine months of research and rigorous debate, some acrimonious, the Citizens’ Council on Climate (CCC) met virtually for a three-day conference starting Friday to prepare its final submission to the French...

    But why is history so important? In this highly connected age of the Internet of Things, why is it necessary to understand anything that happened before the invention of smartphones? In a poll conducted by Victims of Communism, only 57% of millennials believe the Declaration of Independence (which made free men out of slaves) better guarantees freedom and equality over the Communist Manifesto (which makes slaves out of free men). Fifteen percent of millennials think "the world would be better off if the Soviet Union still existed." Seventy percent of millennials said they are likely to vote socialist. The seduction...

    This is part deux of my series on the communist takeover of the United States. Part one, last week's column, centered on the real new president: Barack Obama. I do believe the new president is, in fact, the old president. This is the third term of Obama. The first time around, Obama tried his best to destroy America, American exceptionalism, our Judeo-Christian values, our capitalist economic system, our health care system (17.7% of the U.S. economy in 2019) and the great American middle class. Obama gave it his best shot. He crippled America, but he couldn't quite finish the job....

    The World Economic Forum, founded by Klaus Schwab in 1970, hosts a yearly January gathering of global corporate and political elites in Davos, Switzerland. Annually, it draws hundreds of private jets, as attendees gather to assure the rest of us that we must tighten our belts and sacrifice our standard of living in order to reduce carbon emissions. It calls itself: …the foremost creative force for engaging the world's top leaders in collaborative activities to shape the global, regional and industry agendas at the beginning of each year. That sounds an awful lot like powerful people conspiring with each other...
  • Biden Updates Measure of Economic Damage from Climate Change

    WASHINGTON - The Biden administration today is issuing an interim estimate of the “social cost of carbon,” the government’s measure of the benefits of curbing emissions of carbon and other climate changing air pollutants. This important interim measure sets aside a grievous Trump administration move to essentially deny that climate change causes any economic harm. In addition, President Biden’s January 20th Executive Order instructed agencies to make further improvements by the end of the year assessing the estimated economic toll from climate disruption. The following statement is from Starla Yeh, director of the policy analysis group in the Climate &...

    Researchers agree that climate change alone cannot be blamed for the outbreak of war in Syria in 2011. However, neither can it be ignored as a reason the once blossoming country has become a parched, war-torn place. "Syria serves as prime example for the impact of climate change on pre-existing issues such as political instability, poverty and scarce resources," Jamal Saghir, Professor at the Institute for the Study of International Development at McGill University, told DW. Saghir, a former director at the World Bank, considers climate change the world's biggest threat to security. He therefore sees the recent acknowledgment of...

    We are experiencing tyranny by executive order and most of the Republicans are sitting still for it when they should, as a group, be on the steps of the Capitol every day warning the American people about what is happening. How clueless are the swamp RINOs? Very, very clueless. So confident that they can dismiss President Trump like last week’s news, a select few of them are hilariously destroying their own brands -- as if the 75+ m people who voted for Trump are just going to forget Trump, the best president they’ve had in decades, and go their establishment...
