  • Biden on Climate Change: Only Nine Years Left but Net Zero Emissions ‘No Later than 2050'

    07/15/2020 9:52:04 AM PDT · by rktman · 48 replies ^ | 7/15/2020 | Pam Key
    Former vice president and Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden said Tuesday the United States only has nine years to address climate change as he vowed to deliver net zero emissions by 2050 — 30 years from now. “We’ll lock in progress that no future president can roll back or undercut to take us backward again,” Biden outlined in a speech. “Science requires a time table for measuring progress on climate that isn’t three decades or even two.” “Science tells us we have nine years before the damage is irreversible,” Biden said. “So my time table results is my first four...
  • Will the Left Kill America's Energy Dominance?

    07/14/2020 9:27:00 AM PDT · by rktman · 28 replies ^ | 7/14/2020 | Stephen Moore
    If the "liberal" green movement had the political power during earlier periods of our nation's history that it has now, we would not have built the railroads. Also, there would be no interstate highway system, and the electric grid system that powers our country would be disconnected and shattered. What else can one conclude when a significant and vital energy pipeline, the 600-mile Atlantic Coast Pipeline from West Virginia into the southern states, has been canceled because of environmental activist opposition? Another pipeline, the Dakota Access Pipeline, has been suspended by a federal judge's order in recent days. Even the...
  • Swedish Supermarket Chain to Label Climate Impact of Products

    06/25/2020 9:13:46 AM PDT · by rktman · 16 replies ^ | 6/24/2020 | Chris Tomlinson
    Swedish supermarket chain Coop has announced it will be creating new “sustainability” labels for all of its food products, including their climate impact. The Swedish company announced the new labels, which will be accessed on electronic devices by scanning a bar code. Coop compared the sustainability labels to ingredients labels, a practice the company began as early as 1946. Others, such as those involved with the European Commission’s Farm to Fork (F2F) Strategy, have stated that the public should not only consider eating a more vegetable-based diet, but also consider alternative forms of protein such as insects. Swedish academic and...
  • Fracking Insanity

    05/30/2020 8:07:26 AM PDT · by rktman · 14 replies ^ | 5/30/2020 | Bob Beauprez
    The coronavirus won't destroy America's energy industry. But Democrats might. Progressive lawmakers like Senator Bernie Sanders have long called for a nationwide ban on fracking. But even Joe Biden, the "moderate" Democratic apparent nominee, recently seemed to embrace this radical idea. The oil and gas industry has already taken a big blow to the gut. Because of reduced demand caused by lockdown orders nationwide and a price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, the unthinkable happened in April when an oil futures contract sank into negative territory. In my home state of Colorado, hundreds of wells have been abandoned and...
  • Greta Thunberg Lashes Danes for [Checks Notes] Releasing Waste Water into the Sea

    Swedish climate worrier Greta Thunberg restarted her global campaign against all manner of “climate sins” on Wednesday by lashing the Danish capital Copenhagen for channeling waste water overflow into the sea. According to AP, for the last six years the city has pumped large amounts of waste water into the seaway separating Sweden and Denmark during heavy rains.
  • Global warming: Still junk science after all these years

    05/24/2020 8:37:31 AM PDT · by rktman · 9 replies ^ | 5/24/2020 | Lloyd Brown
    Climate alarmists insist that an increase of one degree in the average global temperatures is a signal that the end of civilization is near. Every day a new revelation: more fires in California, snow in Antarctica is turning green, salmon are dying in Alaska – all attributed to rising temperatures. The first question an inquiring mind would ask is, does the Earth maintain the same average temperature over millennia and how does it accomplish that task? The answer is that it doesn’t. Civilization began because of global warming.
  • Doctors Push for ‘Climate Change’ to Be Recorded on Death Certificates

    Researchers at Australian National University (ANU) have called for ‘climate change’ to be recorded as a cause of death on death certificates. They claim that in Australia, the rate of people dying as a result of global warming may be 50 times higher than is officially acknowledged. In a letter to The Lancet Planetary Health, researchers Arnagretta Hunter and Simon Quilty claim the impact of climate change is currently understated. “Climate change is the single greatest health threat that we face globally even after we recover from coronavirus. “We are successfully tracking deaths from coronavirus, but we also need healthcare...

    Fifty years ago, I helped organize Earth Day #1 programs on my college campus, calling attention to serious pollution problems that afflicted much of the USA. Over the ensuing decades, laws, regulations, and changed attitudes, practices and technologies reduced most of that pollution, often dramatically. I didn’t buy into the 1970 end-is-nigh, doom-and-gloom, billions-will-die hysteria that Ron Stein and Ron Bailey summarize, including the manmade global cooling crisis. I don’t buy it today, either – certainly not this year’s Earth Day focus on the alleged manmade global warming crisis, also blamed on emissions of carbon dioxide, the same gas that...
  • Governor urges using virus 'to peddle a solution to climate change'

    Washington state Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee, who ran for his party's presidential nomination on a climate-change agenda, sees the coronavirus pandemic as an opportunity "to peddle a solution to climate change." In a virtual town hall hosted by Sen. Bernie Sanders, Inslee said the crisis, during which he has implemented some of the nation's most stringent stay-home orders, "has always been an economic opportunity." The governor's remarks at the town hall Wednesday, called "Saving our Planet from the Existential Threat of Climate Change, were spotlighted by longtime Seattle talk-radio host Dori Monson of KIRO FM. "We should not be intimidated...
  • Greta Thunberg added to CNN’s expert coronavirus panel, Twitter erupts

    An upcoming CNN town hall on the coronavirus pandemic will feature 17-year-old Greta Thunberg alongside a panel of medical experts. The program, “Coronavirus Facts and Fears,” also includes CNN broadcaster Sanjay Gupta, 50, former Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, 71, and former Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director Richard Besser, 60. CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, 52, will host alongside Gupta. However, social media watchdogs are foaming at the mouth over the choice to place a teen climate activist on a panel with public health experts. “What place does Greta Thunberg have in this town hall?” asks Twitter...
  • Scientist running for office to challenge 'climate change' agenda-Progressive lawmakers pushing economy-killing 50-cent-per-gallon tax

    With Oregon considering an economy-threatening 50-cent-per-gallon tax to combat "climate change," Art Robinson contends it's time for a scientist to join the state legislature. As a former colleague of Nobel-winner Linus Pauling, member of the biochemistry faculty at the University of California at San Diego and chairman of the Oregon Republican Party, Robinson believes he fits the bill. "I think that Oregon voters would be benefited by sending a scientist to their state Senate in order to correct the lies that are being told there – lies that parrot the pronouncements of unethical and untruthful 'scientists,'" he said in a...
  • Jane Fonda Demands Coronavirus Recovery Money Be Used to Fight Climate Change

    Actress and environmental activist Jane Fonda used May Day to renew calls to end fossil fuels and protect worker rights while she urged against corporate bailouts during the coronavirus pandemic, especially for oil and drilling companies. Instead, the actress is demanding that the government allot recovery money to green or sustainable energy as well as to efforts to create a “level playing field” for workers. “These historic sums of stimulus money aren’t going to happen again, maybe even during our lifetimes. And where they go and how they are spent will determine so much about what kind of future we...
  • As 30 Million Lose Jobs, Robert Redford Sees Environmental Salvation in Lockdown

    Actor Robert Redford is a Trump-hater and climate change nut. And the coronavirus pandemic allows him to indulge in both passions, writing NBC op-eds about how bad the virus makes the president look and how it also presents us with an opportunity to make our post-quarantine lives part of a new climate-conscious collective. Ah yes, a green communist future. Never let a crisis go to waste. The legendary actor wrote a guest column for advocating for a transformation to our society while us normal Americans are stuck at home without too much say in the matter. He began by...
  • Alarmists: Climate Change Will Turn Earth into ‘a Giant, Raging Fire Ball’

    A new Climate Action Plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions seeks to keep the earth from becoming “a giant, raging fire ball floating atop a bubbling hot ocean of acid,” writes Gwendolyn Knapp for Houstonia magazine. Knapp praised the city of Houston for launching a Climate Action Plan, along with hundreds of other U.S. cities with “like-minded, science-backed, and community-driven strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions,” just in time for the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. “The city intends to meet the Paris Agreement’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2050, and lead the global energy transition,” Knapp declares. “It will...
  • How Did CBS Celebrate Earth Day? Declaring Humans Aren’t Needed

    How did CBS Evening News celebrate Earth Day? By sharing the ugly sentiment that humans were not needed. That’s exactly what reporter John Blackstone suggested in his Wednesday report touting how the deadly Chinese coronavirus, which had killed more than 47,000 Americans and left 22 million unemployed, was keeping the country stuck inside. “Tonight, we mark the 50th anniversary of Earth day. There were supposed to be big celebrations around the world, but instead, people are celebrating inside and they're celebrating cleaner air and cleaner water,” boasted anchor Norah O’Donnell as she led into the segment. Blackstone kicked off his...
  • Heartland Institute accuses 'climate alarmists' of exploiting COVID-19 pandemic to advance agenda

    The conservative Heartland Institute released a report on Tuesday in which it criticized leading politicians, activists, and media outlets for using the coronavirus to push their environmental agenda. "Not surprisingly coronavirus alarm has pushed most other issues and concerns out of the news ⎯ much to the dismay of climate alarmists," said Steve Milloy of the Heartland Institute. "But the alarmists aren’t taking displacement by coronavirus lying down. In fact, many climate alarmists are trying to use coronavirus as a means of advancing their agenda. They are trying to surf it." The report, published on and, comes amid...
  • Maybe nature shouldn't be worshiped after all

    A statement widely attributed to the great British thinker G. K. Chesterton describes the modern period as perfectly as any single idea can: "When people stop believing in God, they don't believe in nothing; they believe in anything." One of these substitute gods has been nature. Indeed, of all the false gods, nature is probably the most natural for people to worship. Every religion prior to the Bible had nature-gods – the sun, the moon, the sea, gods of fertility, gods of rain and so on. That is why the further Western society gets from biblical, i.e., Judeo-Christian, religions, the...

    While the media agitators continue to rage and ruthlessly attack the president for not acting in a timely manner to forestall or perhaps even prevent the coronavirus from arriving in the United States, one thing is becoming abundantly clear: the chance of contracting the virus is exponentially higher if you reside in or in the vicinity of a crowded, congested American city. Your chances are greater if you use the subway, city bus, or light rail system. There is an undeniable correlation between population density and the odds of contracting COVID-19, yet the Green New Deal mandates herding small-town and...
  • Scientists: Petrol Pumps Should Carry Cigarette-Style Climate Change Warning Labels

    Petrol pumps in Britain should carry climate change warning labels akin to the legally-mandated health warnings on cigarette packages, a group of scientists have said. In a blog post for the British Medical Journal (BMJ), British, American, and Indian professionals from within healthcare and environmental studies have claimed that petrol pumps, airline tickets, and even energy bills should come with “warning labels” which “state clearly that continuing to burn fossil fuels worsens the climate emergency”. The opinion piece, published on Tuesday, draws parallels to the gory pictures of blackened lungs or rotten teeth now displayed on cigarette packages, implying that...
  • Al Roker Finds Pandemic ‘Silver Lining’: Pollution is ‘Way Down’(Joker?)

    On the Today show Wednesday morning, NBC weatherman Al Roker joined some of his other liberal media colleagues in trying to find a “silver lining” amid the coronavirus pandemic, namely that the deadly disease was improving the climate by forcing people to stay home. “And an interesting correlation to the coronavirus, if there is any, any silver lining, pollution levels way, way down,” Roker declared during his weather report in the 7:30 a.m. ET half hour. A graphic appeared on screen with the headline “Vanishing Pollution,” as he explained: This is what it looked like, our pollution looked like a...
