    Two more raging infernos in California have burned an area nearly ten times the size of Washington, D.C. Wildlife and habitats have been torched. Over 8,000 homes and businesses, and nearly the entire town of Paradise, are now ashes and rubble. Cars were partly charred and melted as they escaped the flames, others completely incinerated - sometimes with occupants still inside. Well over 60 people have perished. Over 50,000 are homeless. Hundreds remain missing.President Trump expressed deep support for the thousands of courageous firefighters battling the conflagrations, urged residents to evacuate quickly and expedited disaster assistance to the ravaged communities....

    Waste of Time: An announcement by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday that there is “tremendous pressure” to revisit “climate change” when Democrats take over control of the chamber in January proves again that the Democratic Party is not interested in actually leading. Rather, the party seems to be preparing to use the next two years ahead of the 2020 elections to engage in Left-wing activism and investigating POTUS Donald Trump. GlobalWarming and ClimateChange “was urgent in 2007. It’s more urgent now,” Pelosi told reporters at a press conference Thursday. Pelosi said she is planning to ask her lunatic...
  • Climate Priests Furious Over Report of Booming Polar Bear Population

    The high priests of climate change are furious over a new Canadian government report saying that the polar bear population is booming and is endangering the native Inuit peoples living in the great white north. The new study finds that the polar bear population has grown so much that they are now competing with the native Inuit people living in the area. But the report runs contrary to what envirowackos continue to say over and over again. Enviros continue to claim that the polar bears are dying out because of global warming. So, this report is infuriating pushers of climate...

    BOSTON (CBS) — Despite the snow blitz of 2015, many baby boomers still insist that, overall, we don’t get the harsh bitter cold and deep snowy winters like we did in the good ole days. Weather records prove that just isn’t the case and despite the ongoing claims that snows are becoming rare and hurting winter sports, this millennium has been a blessing to snow lovers and winter sports enthusiasts. Just as the Saffir-Simpson and Fujita Scales were devised to categorize hurricanes and tornadoes, the Northeast Snowfall Impact Scale (NESIS) was created by Paul Kocin and Louis Uccellini of the...

    **SNIP** Watching it all from the sidelines was Pelosi, who has already called for reinstatement of the select panel that she first set more than a decade ago. Ocasio-Cortez has praised Pelosi for reinstating the special committee, even though she wants it to have far broader authority to craft legislation remaking the U.S. energy grid. “We need to act on climate change NOW w/ a *fossil fuel $-free* Select Committee *with a mandate* to draft a Green New Deal,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted earlier Thursday. “It’s our best chance to beat the clock.” Pallone declined to comment on what happened during the...

    WASHINGTON — Say it ain’t snow! The weather outside really is frightful Thursday, and staying home for a lot of school kids in the Washington area is surely delightful. But D.C.’s first snowfall has created conditions that are cold, wet and dangerous for many commuters. It isn’t just snow either. There’s also sleet and freezing rain to contend with. Check out photos of winter’s first slap of the season below.
  • Scientists behind ocean warming study say errors were made

    Scientists behind a study that found the world's oceans were warming faster than previously believed have said their work contained errors, which means they cannot reach conclusions with such certainty. The issues "do not invalidate the study's methodology or the new insights into ocean biogeochemistry on which it is based," said co-author Ralph Keeling. But they do mean the scientists must redo their calculations. Since publication, two problems had come, Keeling said, one of them related to incorrectly treating systematic errors in the measurements of oxygen. "We expect the combined effect of these two corrections to have a small impact...

    Moments after arriving on Capitol Hill for freshman orientation, Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., went to the office of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. It wasn’t to speak with Pelosi about her run for House speakership. But to join an impromptu sit-in outside of Pelosi’s office to push for congressional action on climate change. “We need to tell her that we’ve got her back in showing and pursuing the most progressive energy agenda that this country has even seen,” Ocasio-Cortez said while standing in the middle of a group of around 200 protestors holding signs reading “Green Jobs For All.”

    Notorious globalist billionaire (George Soros) has (gone on the record) threatening to “take down President Trump” and promising an audience at the World Economic Forum in Davos that the ( New World Order) are making the necessary preparations to completely and utterly obliterate every single Republican plan.Soros is doing this the only way he knows how – by throwing his dirty money around, (sponsoring hate groups, protestors,) and (NGOs), attempting to subvert the course of democracy and eradicate the silent majority.

    “It could happen in a matter of months,” says Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s Langley Research Center. ________________ “The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age,” wrote Dr Tony Phillips just six weeks ago, on 27 Sep 2018. Sunspots have been absent for most of 2018 and Earth’s upper atmosphere is responding, says Phillips, editor of spaceweather.com. Data from NASA’s TIMED satellite show that the thermosphere (the uppermost layer of air around our planet) is cooling and shrinking, literally decreasing the radius of the atmosphere. To help track the latest developments, Martin Mlynczak of NASA’s...

    The “Blue Wave” shrank to a ripple, the U.S. Senate still in Republican hands, the House of Representatives flipped but by fewer seats than for most midterm elections in decades, Trump era deregulation and fossil fuel production efforts continue, and several governorships and state houses went from red to blue, while state renewable energy and carbon tax ballot initiatives went down in flames.On the global stage, despite Herculean efforts by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and activist groups to redefine “climate change” and conjure up scary hobgoblins, the Paris accords and international obsession over global warming and “green”...

    Matt Stone and Trey Parker — the “South Park” creators known for their take-no-prisoners mockery of cultural issues from both sides of the sociopolitical aisle — apparently are feeling a little guilty for mocking Al Gore’s climate change evangelism. See, way back in 2006, a “South Park” episode featured the former vice president warning South Park Elementary School students about the “single biggest threat to our planet” — i.e., ManBearPig, a monster representing climate change, NBC News reported. Gore was a month away from releasing “An Inconvenient Truth” when that episode came out — and the network noted that since...

    A federal appeals court in Oregon on Thursday granted a motion from the Trump administration for a temporary stay in a lawsuit brought forward by a group of young people who argue that the government is violating their rights by not adequately battling climate change. The Associated Press reported Thursday that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals granted a 15-day stay in the case for either it or the Supreme Court to consider a motion by the Trump administration to dismiss the case. "As set forth fully in the accompanying memorandum of law, a stay is warranted because...Defendants will be...

    A new survey shows that while healthcare and the economy are "very important" to voters, the issues of climate change and alleged Russia collusion in the 2016 election are at the bottom of the list for voters in terms of importance. In the poll, Gallup asked, "How important will each of the following issues be to your vote for Congress this year?"

    The constant media refrain that man-caused global warming is dooming many small Pacific islands to sink beneath rising sea levels continues, even as science – and in one case the former president of an "endangered" island – refutes the alarmists, as Andrew Holt of the Herald-Sun in Australia reports: [A] new paper by Virginie K. E. Duvat, of the Institut du Littoral et de l'Environnement, University of la Rochelle, France: A reanalysis of available data, which cover 30 Pacific and Indian Ocean atolls including 709 islands, reveals that no atoll lost land area and that 88.6% of islands were either stable or increased...

    It’s settled science that climate change is real. So we don’t need to ask whether climate change is happening – or whether humans are causing it. Instead, we need to ask: “what can we do?” What can you do that will have the biggest impact? Here’s our guide. 1. What is the single most important thing humanity has to do in the coming years – and what does that mean for me? The number one goal? Limiting the use of fossil fuels such as oil, carbon and natural gas and replacing them with renewable and cleaner sources of energy 3....

    America Thinker ^ | November 4, 2018 | Norman Rogers
    About 10 years ago the brand name global warming was changed to climate change. The reason was simple. The Earth was failing to warm. An additional benefit of the climate change slogan was that everything that goes wrong with the weather can be blamed on climate change, caused by burning fossil fuels. The 2012 hurricane Sandy, that flooded parts of New York and New Jersey, is routinely blamed on climate change. The great New England hurricane of 1938 struck the same area and was vastly worse, killing more than 600 persons. That could not be blamed on climate change caused...

    Dartmouth College lecturer Mark Bray made the argument to abolish capitalism in a recent op-ed for Truthout, linking capitalism to the prioritizing of profit over the environment and everything else. The professor has previously donated half of the profits from his book chronicling Antifa to the organization, written an introduction to an Antifa comic book, and tweeted glowingly about Antifa flags made by kids at a summer camp. Dartmouth professor argued on Tuesday that "if we don't abolish capitalism, capitalism will abolish us."

    On October 8, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released a report warning that nations around the world must cut their greenhouse-gas emissions drastically to reduce the possibility of catastrophic climate change. The report emphasizes “fast deployment of renewables like solar and wind” and largely ignores the essential role nuclear energy must play in any decarbonization effort. Four days earlier, to much less fanfare, two Harvard researchers published a paper showing that trying to fuel our energy-intensive society solely with renewables would require cartoonish amounts of land. How cartoonish? Consider: meeting America’s current demand for electricity alone—not including gasoline or...
