  • Climate change researchers recommend banning frequent flyer reward programs to cut carbon emissions

    A report commissioned by the UK government's official environmental advisers is calling to ban frequent flyer reward schemes to discourage people from traveling by air. **SNIP** The report has also proposed an "air miles levy" to target frequent flyers while protecting those who don't travel as much or travel shorter distances. By placing the levies on frequent flyers, rather than a flat fuel tax, those who don't fly as often would in theory not be disproportionately affected. "Aviation has so far enjoyed generous tax treatment despite a large proportion of flights being taken by a small, wealthy segment of the...

    If this decision stands, every farmer in Minnesota who wants to add more cows (or other animals, presumably) to his farm will have to pay lawyers to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement that calculates the effect of the additional farm animals on the Earth’s average temperature. I can save them some money: the impact is zero, to however many decimal points you want to work it out to. Is this a big deal? It certainly is. Daley Farms has been trying since July 2017 to expand its operation. God only knows how much money it has spent already. With the...
  • New Hampshire poll suggests Michelle Obama would enter race as front-runner

    Former first lady Michelle Obama repeatedly has stated there’s "zero chance" she would run for president in 2020 -- but a new poll in New Hampshire, the state holding the first primary in the race for the White House, suggested that if Obama changed her mind, she would enter the race as the front-runner. The Boston Herald-Franklin Pierce University survey, released on Monday, indicated a three-way tie for the top spot in New Hampshire -- with Sen. Elizabeth Warren at 25 percent support, former Vice President Joe Biden at 24 percent, and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont at 22 percent....
  • WOW! ABC News Uses 2016 Gun Range Video and Lies to Pass It Off as Turkey Bombing the Kurds in Syria

    The fake news mainstream media is working overtime to push their propaganda to smear President Trump. The latest lies coming from the media is the footage of Turkish fighters in northern Syria. ABC News played video this weekend of Turkey bombing the Kurds in Syria. But the video is not from Syria. The video is from a Knob Creek Machine Gun shoot in America back in April 2016 and loaded in 2017 to YouTube. You can see the onlookers watching the entire display.
  • There’s nothing mysterious about Republicans’ support of Trump

    Based on the number of articles written about them, two of the great questions of our time are: Why do Republicans stick with Donald Trump? And what happened to all the “Never Trump” people? In recent days, The New York Times has published items about each of them. In polls, the vast majority of Republicans have consistently given Trump their approval for the job he is doing — even as tariffs and the deficit have risen, even as he rages on Twitter, even as evidence of abuse of power has mounted. His support among conservatives has actually increased over time....
  • SFO plans to surround airport with 10-mile wall to protect against rising bay waters (only $587 mil)

    Concerned that rising waves will flood runways and buildings in the coming years, officials at San Francisco International Airport are moving ahead with a $587 million plan to build a major new sea wall around the entire airport. The plan, the latest example of the growing cost of climate change in California, involves driving steel pilings - sheets with interlocking edges - into the mud and also constructing concrete walls in some places around all of the airport’s 10-mile perimeter. “This is something we’ve been looking at for many years,” said Doug Yakel, a spokesman for the airport. “What’s changed...

    As it is becoming obvious that political responses to global warming such as the Paris treaty are not working... **SNIP** Solving climate change, in fact, requires getting China, India and all the other developing countries on board to cut emissions. But of course, their goal is to lift their populations out of poverty with cheap and reliable energy. How do we square that? A carbon tax can play a limited but important role in factoring the costs of climate change into fossil-fuel use. Nobel laureate climate economist William Nordhaus has shown that implementing a small but rising global carbon tax...

    The UK government must tell the public small, easy changes will not be enough to tackle climate change, warn experts. Researchers from Imperial College London say we must eat less meat and dairy, swap cars for bikes, take fewer flights, and ditch gas boilers at home. The report, seen by BBC Panorama , has been prepared for the Committee on Climate Change, which advises ministers how to cut the UK's carbon footprint. It says an upheaval in our lifestyles is the only way to meet targets. The government has passed a law obliging the country to cut carbon emissions to...

    The televangelist Pat Robertson stood by Donald Trump in 2016 during the storm over the “Access Hollywood” tape of the Republican candidate boasting about assaulting women, dismissing the remarks as “macho talk.” As recently as last month, he defended Trump’s attempt to get Ukraine to discredit Joe Biden, calling the idea of impeachment “absurd.” But this week, finally, Trump did something that “absolutely appalled” Robertson, leading him to warn that the president was in danger of losing “the mandate of Heaven”

    Although the wealthy can and should be expected to make larger sacrifices than the middle class, it's vanishingly unlikely that any plan serious enough to slow global warming will leave the bulk of Americans financially untouched. But if Americans are going to be asked to engage in a war on climate change, they should understand the material and economic sacrifices that will be required of them. The best way to do this is to look at an ambitious, well-crafted climate plan like the one put forward by Washington Governor Jay Inslee. **SNIP** Much of this could be financed with taxes...

    The woman who served as the inspiration for Greece's first Barbie doll has been accused of falsely claiming she is a leading scientist who has won awards for her work for Nasa. Eleni Antoniadou, 31, has been described as a specialist in the fields of regenerative medicine, artificial organ bioengineering and space medicine, as well as training astronauts at Nasa, and working as CEO of Transplants Without Donors, which creates artificial organs for transplants. Cited as a "Greek scientist of global calibre" by national media, her accolades include being named in a Forbes magazine's 30 Under 30 list for Healthcare,...

    She has won awards and accolades, and has been feted internationally for her scientific work, but now a woman hailed as one of Greece's youngest and brightest minds has come under more intense scrutiny than ever before. The rise and possible fall of Eleni Antoniadou, 31, has become the subject of intense discussion among Greeks. For years she has been giving interviews portraying herself as a researcher working for Nasa; an expert on regenerative medicine; a maker of cutting-edge artificial organs; a passionate activist against organ trafficking; and a trainer of astronauts. But it seems that not a single Greek...

    On the eve of a “global climate strike,” a new report revealed that none of the global warming doomsday predictions of the past 50 years have come true. “Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today,” said the analysis from the Competitive Enterprise Institute shared with Secrets. “None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true,” it added. The report cites 30 predictions made by experts, government scientists, and global leaders, including former Vice President Al Gore and Britain’s Prince Charles. **SNIP** “While such predictions...

    Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today. None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true. What follows is a collection of notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science. More than merely spotlighting the failed predictions, this collection shows that the makers of failed apocalyptic predictions often are individuals holding respected positions in government and science. While such predictions have been and continue to be enthusiastically reported by a media eager for sensational headlines, the failures are typically not revisited. 1967:...

    The vegan diet is often lauded as the most environmentally friend way to eat, but scientists have highlighted that cutting down on animal products can also help to protect the planet against climate change. A worldwide move towards plant-focused diets is "essential for meeting climate change mitigation targets," scientists wrote in the journal Global Environmental Change. But how this is achieved depends on the country. The team, from Johns Hopkins University, Maryland, looked at the carbon and water footprints of nine plant-rich diets from 140 countries, and compared them with what is typically eaten. A total of 74 food items...

    FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Thousands of protesters marched in front of Frankfurt's IAA car show on Saturday to demand a swift end to combustion engines and a shift to environmentally friendly vehicles as Chancellor Angela Merkel's government prepares to unveil climate protection measures. Police in Frankfurt said some 15,000, including many cyclists, took part in the march. Organizers put the number at 25,000 and said that around 18,000 cyclists had descended on the city. Protesters took aim at SUVs, seen by environmentalists as a highly polluting status symbol that has no place in cities. "STOP SUV," "SUV not cool," and "We...
