    VIDEOLast September while cruising in the southern Caribbean aboard the Celebrity Equinox, I had a close encounter with a rainbow. So close that I estimate I was less than 50 yards from it for awhile. BTW, just about 10 seconds before I got this shot of the rainbow a big lightning strike hit at about the same distance away. Since the good luck from the rainbow was apparently not retroactive, I didn't have my cell phone camera turned on although I was already in the process of doing so.

    This week 400 private jets flew to Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt for the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) carrying the elite members of humanity that are working on a plan to save the planet. Many posts to social media pointed out that travel by private jet is far more polluting than travel by commercial airlines. Climate Action Against Disinformation, a group that analyses trends in false information on social media, debunked complaints that such luxurious modes of travel demonstrate hypocrisy, saying that "the value of time for these best and brightest of our species far outweighs the extra...

    It turns out that efforts to recycle plastic are a waste of time and energy. The environmental advocacy group Greenpeace issued a report showing that "mechanical and chemical recycling of plastic waste has largely failed and will always fail because plastic waste is: (1) extremely difficult to collect, (2) virtually impossible to sort for recycling, (3) environmentally harmful to reprocess, (4) often made of and contaminated by toxic materials, and (5) not economical to recycle." Lisa Ramsden, a senior plastics campaigner at Greenpeace USA and one of the authors of the report, said "most plastic is not being recycled in...

    The Moon is about to take a bite out of the sun. Tomorrow, Oct. 25th, a partial solar eclipse will be visible from Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and northeast Africa: timetables. All of Europe is in the eclipse zone with the deepest eclipse in the Scandinavian countries: The eclipse will become visible first in Reykjavik, Iceland, at 8:58 a.m. local time; where the sun will eventually be about 20 percent covered (sunrise is at 8:30 a.m.). By 11 a.m. in London, the moon will block 15 percent of the sun. The shadow will be peak around 4 p.m. in...
  • Biden's Next Crisis: Home Heating Oil Rationing Begins in Northeast, and It's Not Even Winter Yet

    It looks like President Joe Biden might get his winter of death after all, and it’s not because of the unvaccinated. If you live in the Northeast, you know that even in normal times, heating oil bills constitute a significant expense because winters are usually brutal. Unfortunately, this year could be the worst year ever for residents of the region hoping to adequately heat their homes. Not only are heating oil prices through the roof on anti-fossil fuel President Joe Biden’s watch, but even for those who have the funds to stock up, it doesn’t really matter: heating oil rationing...

    In a demonstration against gasoline-powered cars, nine protesters glued themselves to the floor at the Porsche pavilion in the Autostadt museum in Wolfsburg, Germany. Spokesperson for the protesters Gianluca Grimalda denounced Volkswagen (VW), "they said they supported us, but they have failed to provide bowls for us to urinate and defecate into a decent manner while we're glued to the floor. They have also turned off the heat when the museum closes for the night. It is a crime against humanity." A spokesman for VW clarified the "support" issue. "We support their right to freedom of speech and assembly," he...
  • Officials Urge People to Pack “Go Bags”, Prepare for Eruption, at World’s Largest Active Volcano in Hawaii, Mauna Loa

    Seismic unrest is building at the world’s largest active volcano in Hawaii, where officials are urging people on the Big Island of Hawaii to pack “go bags” and prepare for the inevitable eruption of the giant Mauna Loa volcano. Yesterday, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) said that they detected 65 small-magnitude earthquakes 2-3 miles below the Mokuāʻweoweo caldera beneath the upper-elevation northwest flank of Mauna Loa, an increase in activity from the ongoing period of unrest. Global Positioning System (GPS) instrumentation on Mauna Loa continue to measure inflation at rates elevated since mid-September, indicating that magma is building inside the...

    “World government wants massive profits for the wind and solar sector. They want to take away a lot of our freedoms.” – Scientist Tom Harris Nothing is what it appears to be. That heatwave that hit Europe this past summer? Twenty years ago, it was just a heatwave. Now, you’d be led to believe that it’s all part of the climate emergency that mankind has brought upon itself. A recent World Climate Declaration, signed by 1,100 scientists, has made the rounds on social media, claiming that there is no climate emergency. But a 2019 Cornell University study found that 99.9...

    Researchers:Hurricanes are NOT increasing in frequency nor intensity, data shows.Increase in hurricane damage is due to more people living along the U.S. coastline.MAIN POINTS from a 2018 research article from the American Meteorological Society:While neither U.S. landfalling hurricane frequency nor intensity shows a significant trend since 1900, growth in coastal population and wealth have led to increasing hurricane-related damage along the U.S. coastline.[T]here is an insignificant trend in CONUS landfalling hurricanes from 1900-2017 (Fig. 2a)…[and] (Fig.2b). We therefore conclude that the large increase in observed hurricane-associated inflation-adjusted CONUS damage (Pielke et al. 2008) is primarily due to increases in exposure...

    Powerline ^ | 10/01/2022 | John Hinderaker
    Hurricane Ian is moving up the Atlantic seaboard and apparently passing into history. It was tremendously destructive as it hit the Gulf coast of Florida, and Democrats didn’t even wait for the hurricane to make landfall before politicizing it. Democrats hope Ian will bring down, or at least put a chink in the armor of, the heretofore invincible Ron DeSantis. But I am confused: didn’t we learn during Katrina that dealing with hurricanes is the responsibility of the federal government? Specifically, the president? And that other officials, like governors and mayors, are irrelevant? So if there are problems dealing with...

    As Hurricane Ian ripped its way across Florida, Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn) asserted "things like this wouldn't be happening if Democrats were in charge everywhere. Republicans are the ones who refuse to help Democrats save the climate. They insist that the prosperity enabled by low taxes, adequate supplies of energy, and widespread mobility are too valuable to sacrifice for the small fractions of carbon dioxide we're trying to eliminate. Voters can save themselves from the Hellish environment that will overtake us in the next century by electing Democrats across-the-board in November." Christina Pushaw, spokesperson for Gov. Ron DeSantis' reelection campaign,...

    One of the strongest storms ever to hit Canada slammed into Nova Scotia’s coastline early Saturday, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without power. Former Hurricane Fiona made landfall early on Saturday morning over Guysborough county on the northeast corner of mainland Nova Scotia, Canada’s weather service said. There were maximum sustained winds of almost 81 mph, while peak gusts of over 100 mph were detected, it added. It is the lowest pressured land falling storm on record in Canada, according to the Canadian Hurricane Center, which also described hurricane-force gusts battering the area. More than 40% of the population...

    The Sun has been up to some pretty intense shenanigans lately, but a recent eruption on the far side looks to be absolute science gold. On the evening of September 5 GMT, an enormous coronal mass ejection (CME) was recorded exploding on the far side of the Sun, sending a radiation storm out across the Solar System. It was a type known as a halo CME, in which an expanding halo of hot gas can be seen spewing out around the entire Sun. Sometimes this means that the CME is headed straight for Earth. However, this eruption was on the...

    California’s been in the midst of a prolonged heatwave, and as we’ve reported, it’s put tremendous strain on the state’s energy grid as air conditioners run round the clock to try to keep the scorching air at bay. The problem has gotten so bad that the government has issued warnings of “rolling blackouts” to its residents. Dire “flex alert” text messages were sent out en masse by grid operators Tuesday afternoon, calling on the populace to set their ACs no lower than 78 degrees and forgo the use of appliances like washing machines. Yes, this is 21st-century life in a...

    The political push to force people to buy electric vehicles (EVs) has run into problems. The State of California has decreed that no fossil-fueled vehicles will be allowed to be sold in the state after 2035. About a dozen other states that have linked their vehicle emission rules to the "California Standard" are now legally obligated to follow whatever regulations California adopts. Left unconsidered in this bold stride toward clean energy is how enough electricity to power the growing number of EVs these rules will mandate. Right now only 1% of the vehicles on the road are EVs. Even with...
