  • MSNBC Freaks Out Over EPA Chief Rejecting Climate Hysteria

    During Friday’s 1:00 p.m. ET hour, MSNBC anchors Stephanie Ruhle and Ali Velshi were aghast at Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler dismissing climate change fearmongering in a recent interview with CBS News. The hosts denounced his comments and even brought on former Obama administration EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy to blast him. “The Trump administration has managed to downplay the impact of climate change again. Andrew Wheeler, the new EPA administrator, insisted the effects of manmade global warming are not here yet,” Ruhle complained as she teed up a clip of Wheeler talking to CBS correspondent Major Garrett in an...
  • Liberals pushing Green New Deal have no idea what it would cost

    The Green New Deal would come at a hefty cost - but figuring out how much is proving to be an impossible task for the bean-counters. The American Action Forum, a right-leaning think tank run by a former Congressional Budget Office director, says the plan could run anywhere from $51 trillion to $93 trillion in costs to the government and private sector over a decade. Liberal lawmakers who made the proposal laughed that off, with Sen. Edward J. Markey, Massachusetts Democrat, calling it “Big Oil misinformation.” The problem is the backers don’t have any studies of their own, only promises...

    The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Psalm 23:1-3 KJV We are seeing an explosion of suicides and nobody knows why. Some are blaming cell phones and computer screens while others are fostering the bullying and hatred we are seeing in our society when it appears the answer is far more evil. The real reason people and especially the young are committing suicide is the Global...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y, thinks the planet will be destroyed in 12 years if we don’t stop producing carbon dioxide with our cars, planes and oil consumption. I think this is the way she put it: “We’ll all be dead in 12 years, if we’re not serious about climate change.” Not only is the fake news loaded hourly with tales of imminent doom and gloom for the Earth if we don’t transform our lifestyles, economies, diet and say goodbye to air-conditioning and heating in our homes, but even the corporate ads play homage to this apocalyptic charade, this monumental hoax,...

    Idiots who support bans on fracking and restrictions on new pipelines say it’s “unexpected” that New York has a shortage of natural gas One of the most simple and basic signs of intelligence is the understanding that actions lead to consequences.In New York, some people are showing a basic lack of understanding of this concept.In New York state, fracking is banned, and new pipelines have been prohibited in certain locations. The natural and logical outcome of these policies is that the state has a shortage of natural gas. Developers who had been planning to build new housing will not be allowed...
  • Judge blocks oil-drilling in Wyoming because of climate change

    An outrageous ruling from a federal judge will halt hundreds of oil and gas drilling projects across 500 square miles in Wyoming because he says the government did not adequately take into account climate change when granting the leases on public lands. Talk about out-of-control Judiciary. NBC News: U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras in Washington appeared to go a step further than other judges in his order issued late Tuesday. Previous rulings focused on individual lease sales or permits. But Contreras said that when the U.S. Bureau of Land Management auctions public lands for oil and gas leasing, officials must...

    limate change activism is increasingly the domain of the young, such as 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, the unlikely face of the school strike for climate movement, which has seen many thousands of children walk out of school to demand that their parents’ generation takes responsibility for leaving them a planet to live on. In comparison, the existing political establishment looks more and more like an impediment to change. The consequences of global warming have moved from the merely theoretical and predicted to observable reality over the past few years, but this has not been matched by an uptick in urgency. The...

    **SNIP** "We need a new president, and we need a president committed heart and soul to the climate crises," Gore said during an activist training conference in Atlanta hosted by his nonprofit, nonpartisan Climate Reality Project. "I'm very happy that so many of the Democratic candidates have made it clear that's the way they would intend to govern if they won." Trump's presidency "is unfortunate in so many ways," Gore said, but he also credited Trump's open contempt of the scientific consensus that human activity affects the Earth's atmosphere with pushing many moderates and even some conservatives toward the more...

    Today, at least 50 rallies planned across Australia are expected to draw thousands of students who are walking out of school to protest climate change inaction. These Australian students join children from over 82 countries who are striking to highlight systemic failure to address climate change.But the strikes represent more than frustration and resistance. They are evidence of an even bigger process of transformation. My research investigates how young people's sense of self, identity, and existence is being fundamentally altered by climate change.Canaries in the coalmineStriking children are experiencing "existential whiplash," caught between two forces. One is a dominant culture...

    Hi kids, Many of you will be marching today, demonstrating for an issue you believe to be very important. Many years ago, I was young, well informed, and absolutely convinced I knew enough to make good decisions for the future of the world, and couldn’t understand just how obtuse all the oldies were, how they just didn’t know the stuff I had just learned. Malthusian economics drove most of us, the Club of Rome had reported, and to my subsequent shame, I confess that in 1975 I voted for the Values Party…. I wanted a better world, I knew resources...

    On March 5, 58 senior military and national security leaders sent a letter to President Trump denouncing his plan to form a National Security Council panel to take a critical look at the science underpinning climate change claims. Their objections to such a Red Team effort were basically that the “science is settled.” But if the science is settled, what are they afraid of? Wouldn’t a review of the science come to the same conclusion as the supposed consensus of climate scientists? The letter claimed, “Climate change is real, it is happening now, it is driven by humans, and it...

    The “elite” that are in positions of power in our country have decided to make a final push on climate change before being debunked in the future. The man-hater from Hawaii Mazie Hirono stated in the past week that the Green New Deal is recognition that climate change is happening and that we should not stick our heads in the sand. She has described President Trump, and his minions know zero about the subject and that they deny the "science" behind climate change. Since the subject has gone from global cooling to global warming, to climate change, it proves that...

    California is free of drought for the first time in more than seven years and only a small amount of its territory remains abnormally dry as a very wet winter winds down, experts said Thursday. More than 93 percent of the state is free of drought or dryness, and areas of abnormal dryness along the Oregon border and in parts of four southern counties amount to less than 7 percent of the state, the U.S. Drought Monitor said in its weekly update. The conditions in the far south are because of very dry prior years, the monitor said, noting reservoirs...

    Dear Fr. _______, I find the re-theming of Lent by Climate Crisis this year-- apparently a "wholesale" international push (Global Catholic Climate Movement, Catholic Climate Covenant, etc. etc.) with local "retail" distributors --- deeply misplaced. It's hard for me to know how to express this. Getting a reasonable and godly perspective is a struggle, but let me give you my best. I write as a spokes-person (ha) for my little circle of Church Ladies at this point. Several -- I won't name names -- have started this conversation with me, and what we all agree on is this: Nobody here...

    Climate alarmists constantly warn us that man-made global warming is making our world less habitable and that climate doomsday is fast approaching. But a closer look at our climate reveals a surprising climate discovery that our mainstream media have conveniently ignored for decades: the role of the sun in determining Earth's climate. For the first time in humanity's history, our leaders could be actively devising policies — based on their defiant and biased obsession with global warming — that will render us highly vulnerable to even the slightest cooling in our climatic system. "We are causing irreversible damage to our...

    SANTA FE — Complex legislation that would push New Mexico toward carbon-free energy generation over the next 25 years won approval in the House on Tuesday — sending the bill to Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham in the final days of the session. The proposal, Senate Bill 489, would authorize the use of bonds for Public Service Company of New Mexico to pay for costs associated with closing a coal-fired power plant in the Four Corners area. It would also phase in requirements for PNM and other public utilities to shift to carbon-free energy generation by 2045. They would have to...

    Co-founder of environmental organization Greenpeace Patrick Moore said Tuesday that the climate change crisis driving much of liberal politics today “is not only fake news. It’s fake science.” Moore also wondered during his appearance on “Fox & Friends” why people would be worried about global warming: “A little bit of warming would not be a bad thing, for myself being Canadian.” Moore bounced back into the climate change debate last week in an online feud with New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after he blasted her Green New Deal for being not ambitious but ridiculous. “Well, it’s a silly plan;...

    Political figures who support the so-called Green New Deal and other proposals to restrict carbon dioxide emissions are up against some “inconvenient facts” that Americans may access immediately through a smartphone application, a geologist and author says. But there’s one big problem. The app, called Inconvenient Facts, is available only to Android users through the Google Play Store. Since March 4, users of Apple’s iPhone no longer can access the app through the tech giant’s App Store. Gregory Wrightstone, a geologist with more than three decades of experience, told The Daily Signal in an interview that he has his own...
