    American History | October 21 2016 | ~ MM ~
    When Donald Trump refused to concede the 2016 Election in advance of Nov 8th, they all immediately turned on him. Hillary, Chris Wallace, the entire MSM (even Fox and the NY Post!), as well as the GOPe said that Trump was out of line with his refusal to concede beforehand. How quickly they forget! It's been brought up many times in these forums that Algore contested the 2000 election, but I haven't seen any mention of one of the most devastating 'contested' elections in American history ... that being the election 1860. Not only was election 1860 'contested' but fully...

    MIAMI—Former Vice President Al Gore on Tuesday returned to the campaign trail in Florida, where his 537-vote loss cost him the White House in 2000, presenting himself as “exhibit A” on the importance of voting. “Please take it from me: Every single vote counts,” he told 1,600 people at a rally here with Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton. Mr. Gore reminded younger people in the audience that his loss to Republican George W. Bush was “very close”—so close that many Democrats believe the outcome would have been different if the Supreme Court hadn’t halted a recount of ballots.

    If all the countries do their bit then the total reduction in global warming – by the year 2100 will be 0.170 degrees Centigrade. As a climate sceptic friend of mine pointed out at the time, you’d experience a bigger temperature increase than that just walking down from the top to the bottom of the Eiffel tower. So there’s your deal folks: you – and taxpayers like you – are paying $1.5 trillion a year to reduce the world’s temperatures by the end of this century by 0.170. It’s so perfectly ridiculous it’s almost funny. And I suppose on a...

    World leaders must show their commitment to tackling global warming by signing the Paris climate agreement at a ceremony in April at the United Nations, climate change activist and former US vice president Al Gore said. "There is an overwhelming amount of hope that the Paris climate agreement could be a turning point towards a more resilient, low-carbon future," Gore told Reuters. "While the deal is not enough by itself, it is a major step forward." The key is for countries to switch to renewable energy, Gore said. "With the Paris agreement, we send a signal to the business community...

  • Beverly Hills' crackdown on water wasters is having the desired effect ( except David Geffen and )

    Officials in Beverly Hills say they tried it all: educational campaigns, usage restrictions and written notices for people suspected of wasting water. Despite those efforts, the community missed its savings target every month since June, when a statewide 25% reduction in urban water consumption became mandatory amid the punishing drought. As a result, state regulators fined the city, saying publicly that its water wasters "should be ashamed." About four months ago, city officials got tough. Beverly Hills sent letters to dozens of customers in November warning them of high water use and urging them to cut back. The city also...

    Take a look at this abstract from the journal Progress in Human Geography: ………………………………………………………………………Glaciers, Gender, and Science:A FEMINIST GLACIOLOGY: framework for global environmental change research Mark Carey, M Jackson, Alessandro Antonello, Jaclyn Rushing ABSTRACT Glaciers are key icons of climate change and global environmental change. However, the relationships among gender, science, and glaciers – particularly related to epistemological questions about the production of glaciological knowledge – remain understudied. This paper thus proposes a feminist glaciology framework with four key components: 1) knowledge producers; (2) gendered science and knowledge; (3) systems of scientific domination; and (4) alternative representations of glaciers. Merging...
  • MIT Report: Carbon Tax Necessary to Break Fossil Fuel Dependence

    Renewable energy advocates like to point out that the cost of renewable fuels, like solar power, have dropped substantially in the last few years. The cost of solar power for instance has fallen by more than two-thirds since 2009. Yet for all the excitement about renewable power, the reality is that the entire energy sector has essentially been in a state of deflation for the last decade. The notable drop in oil prices over the last two years aside, costs of producing oil both in the U.S. and in many parts of the world have fallen dramatically. The phase out...

    Washington could become the first state in the nation to impose a direct tax on carbon emissions from fossil fuels such as coal, gasoline and natural gas. A ballot measure before the state Legislature would create a carbon tax of $25 per metric ton of fossil fuel emissions burned in Washington, while reducing taxes. ...
