What – The Glaciers Aren’t Melting?!

from Flag and Cross:

National Parks Quietly Dump Signs Saying Glaciers ‘Will Be Gone’ By 2020 Due to Mythical Global Warming

The National Park Service removed signs put up by the Obama administration telling visitors that the glaciers would “all be gone” by the year 2020.

 

The National Park Service has quietly removed all the signs put up by the Obama administration that told visitors that the glaciers would “all be gone” by the year 2020 due to global warming… because… it’s 2019 and the glaciers are all still there. read more

DC Residents had Better see Through the New Vision Zero Bill

The goal of the omnibus Vision Zero bill, from council member Charles Allen of Ward 6, is to decrease the number of traffic accidents with pedestrians and cyclists,” writes the Washington Examiner.

At first blush, it may appear to be a “traffic safety bill,” but reading further, the additional proposals make obvious what this really is. The “Vision Zero bill” is a government command and control / Green New Deal style bill, disguised as a traffic safety bill.

The main takeaway of the bill, that many conservative chronicles gleaned, is that neighbors will be allowed to effectively write their own parking tickets – turning otherwise harmless busy-bodies into traffic cops.

Now, knowing that the police can’t be everywhere, the aforementioned D.C. council member Charles Allen of Ward 6 proposes that, “certain residents,” be given the authority, “to write out parking tickets to their neighbors.” read more

George Carlin on Saving the Planet

The following video is comedian George Carlin’s rather politically incorrect take on saving the planet, and how mankind is not to blame for its destruction.

Warning: If you can’t stomach the F-word, you may want to skip this one. Otherwise, enjoy Carlin’s irreverent take on the arrogance of the left: read more

Is Soylent Green Really that Fantastic?

The other day, an internet article jumped off the screen at me.

It was posted on the progressive, Seattle PI website, and was entitled, “After death: Washington state set to become the first to allow human composting.”

That’s right. “Seattleites will likely soon have a unique option to remember their loved ones after they die. Washington state is set to become the first to allow “natural organic reduction” as a burial alternative — commonly referred to as human composting — as a bill legalizing the process was approved by the legislature and now heads to Gov. Jay Inslee’s desk.”

“Democratic Sen. Jamie Pedersen of Seattle sponsored the bill because he said it makes sense — it’s a low environmental impact way to dispose of remains. ‘We can show the way for the world about a better way in dealing with this universal human experience,’ Pedersen said in a tweet. …composting bodies could allow for the deceased to give back. The process will turn a body into soil within weeks.”

Katrina Spade, CEO of Recompose, said that, “Americans are largely faced with two options after death: cremation and burial. Burial takes up a lot of space, and those buried can own their plots forever, which is not sustainable. Cremation releases greenhouse gases and particulates. But composting bodies could allow for the deceased to give back.

Now, to help save the planet, instead of burying or cremating grandma, you can have her ground up and made into compost. What a great and enlightened idea. read more

Squishy Republicans Accept the Left’s Socialist Climate Change Hoax

from Conservative Review:

Republicans embrace socialism in climate change message

What a crock.

In an article titled, “GOP hoping voters open to warnings of Democrats’ socialism,” the Associated Press looks at Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., who has been telling town hall participants that socialism is afoot and that he wants everyone to join him in the fight against it.

The article is slanted, as most AP articles are. Its writer tried to make the point, by interviewing random people, that Republicans are stoking fear when the issue really doesn’t faze most people. The article ends with a wry warning to Republicans that crying wolf over Democrats’ socialist views might actually hurt them in 2020. read more

De Blasio’s Green New Deal

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

“Mayor Bill de Blasio approved an ambitious $14 billion plan last Monday to attack global warming and combat climate change,” writes the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

“New York City’s Green New Deal will drive a nearly 30 percent additional reduction in greenhouse emissions by 2030 while also creating tens of thousands of new jobs.”

So its going to cost the residents and businesses $14 billion to attack global and combat climate change. I dedicated part of this past weekend’s video podcast to just this very thing. Not global warming, but to how the left just gets to make these wild claims without being challenged. Who would challenge them? The Daily Eagle is just parroting de Blasio’s talking points. So much for holding politicians accountable.

And I love the tens of thousands of new jobs. Doing what and paid for by whom? And why 2030? What happens in 2030? Answer – nothing. The year is just arbitrary. It’s close enough to cause the uncurious and dull-witted a sense of panic to “get things done,” but far enough away for people to forget what was claimed, as we close in on it without the world ending. The date was probably focus-grouped.

Okay, back to the propaganda. read more

MSNBC Anchor Calls Out Democrat Senator for Hypocrisy

This is stunning! Seeing an MSNBC anchor call out a fellow climate change traveler for her hypocrisy. I wonder what’s next – that these true believers on Cable News will figure out that the politicians they love are just that – politicians. That they don’t actually believe any of this crap?

from the Blaze:

MSNBC’s Katy Tur presses Sen. Hirono after no Dem votes for Green New Deal: ‘you’re trying to have it both ways’

After no Democratic senator voted in favor of the Green New Deal on Tuesday, the party line was to blame Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) for trying to divide the party with a “show vote.” read more

Words Have Meaning – It’s Why the Left Keeps Changing Them

from Victor Davis Hanson for IBD:

Changing Reality With Words

The reinvention of vocabulary can often be more effective than any social protest movement. Malarial swamps can become healthy “wetlands.” Fetid “dumps” are often rebranded as green “landfills.”

Global warming was once a worry about too much heat. It implied that man-made carbon emissions had so warmed the planet that life as we knew it would soon be imperiled without radical changes in consumer lifestyles.

Yet in the last 30 years, record cold spells, inordinate snow levels and devastating rains have been common. How to square that circle? read more

Video Podcast – A Border Cable – Green is the New Red Deal

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A Texas Republican Congressman, Will Hurd, has an idea to run fiber optic cable from one end of the country to the other, under ground, to detect people crossing our border illegally. This is in lieu of, or instead of a border wall.

Great plan. The cable won’t stop anyone from crossing, but will simply alert border patrol that someone, or group of someones has.

The “Green New Deal” that AOC and others have proposed is nothing more than a new communist manifesto. It’s not Democratic or any other kind of socialism. It’s straight-up communism. And what does their economic program have to do with global warming? Absolutely nothing. read more
