Sanders Lurches Furthest Left with New Climate Change Scheme

Typical brain-dead leftist. Pay for a program by taxing the Golden Eggs from the Goose you vow to kill. Makes perfect sense!

from the Blaze:

Bernie Sanders unveils most extreme climate change plan of all 2020 Dems

He says the plan will ‘pay for itself’ in 15 years

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.) released a climate change plan Thursday that far exceeds the plans of other Democrats in both ambition and cost, according to the New York Times.

Sanders, who supported the infamous Green New Deal posted by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), gave his plan the same title and wants to eliminate fossil fuel use completely by 2050. read more

Glaciers are Being Murdered in Iceland – Global Warming Must be to Blame

You know how we always hear news people describe someone as the alleged or suspected killer, not just a killer who murdered X number of people, or whatever.

It’s because there is supposed to be an assumption of innocent, lacking any evidence and due process.

Well, in Iceland, a murder on a massive scale took place and the funeral service was just held recently. The service was held for the victim, “the once huge Okjokull (OK) glacier.” The glacier perished some five years ago, in 2014, yet it’s taken all this time to decide to hold a funeral? Better late than never, I guess. As the old saying goes: It ain’t getting any deader!

I’d like to say, after all this time, a suspect is in custody. But no one is using the term suspect. Rather, the environmentalists and virtue signaling hangers-on that attended the service know full well who perpetrated this act. They aren’t using the terms suspected or alleged. Oh no – the perp has been tried and convicted in the world environmental court.

The murderer is of course … Global Warming, or Climate Change. read more

In 2012, centuries-old legends of a lost city in Honduras were confirmed when ancient ruins were rediscovered in the dense Mosquita rainforest. Now, scientists have conducted a three-week expedition to these ruins, known as the “White City” or the “Lost City of the Monkey God,” and found a trove of natural treasures. Living in the pristine forests around the city is an incredibly rich array of wildlife, including species new to science, some unknown in the area, some that haven’t been seen in decades and others that were believed extinct. read more

New Design for Wind and Surf Break

Wind storms can cause a great deal of damage to coastal areas, producing waves that erode the shoreline and destroy facilities such as marinas. A newly-proposed “floating forest” could help, however, by blocking both the wind and the waves. read more

Of Regulations and Federal Land

from Breitbart:

Trump’s Department of Interior Axing 7,500 Regs to Give Americans Access to Federal Land

Trump’s Cabinet is putting his America First policies into place, including at the Department of Interior, where Secretary David Bernhardt announced a plan to open up more than 1.4 million acres of federal land through the elimination of some 7,500 regulations.

The land, under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, includes 74 national wildlife refuges and 15 national fish hatcheries.

Bernhardt said: read more

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

Toxic Jellyfish Lurk in Waters off Jersey Shore

Scientists are warning visitors to the Jersey Shore this Memorial Day weekend to watch out for toxic jellyfish said to be invading the waters.

A bloom of roughly 200 to 300 clinging jellyfish have been found in the New Jersey waters, according to Professor Paul Bologna of Montclair State and a group of his students.

‘We’ve just pulled algae and what we’re trying to look for is something called clinging jellyfish,’ Elias Chalet, a biology major at the school, explained to CBS New York. ‘The reason we’re trying to look for it is because they have a very lethal toxin.’

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.

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

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
