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?

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

Adventurer, environmental activist and “Dude Making a Difference” Rob Greenfield is also involved in the tiny house movement but feels that the rise in luxury models is missing the point. In a bid to prove that small living can be done on a modest budget, he recently built a tiny house for under US$1,500 in Florida using mostly recycled materials. 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

New Democrats Will Solve Our Problems

from the American Thinker:

The Progressives and Your Money

First things first. They’re no longer Democrats. “Democrats” are so yesterday, so obsolete, so unrepresentative of current liberal thought. JFK was a Democrat and he believed in a strong military, cutting taxes and confronting worldwide evil from an absolutist — not relative — vantage point. That’s all so wrong. We need a more enlightened approach, one that benefits from the knowledge we’ve gained in the 60 years since JFK. We’re progressed so far. That’s it — we’ll call ourselves Progressives. read more

National Parks are Trashed after 12 days of Shutdown

After only 12 days of the partial government slowdown, America’s National Parks are beginning to look like the streets of San Francisco.

from the Blaze: 

National parks brimming with trash, human feces as government shutdown continues

Overflowing garbage cans, human feces, and illegal off-roading are just a few of the problems plaguing some national parks where visitors are taking advantage of the lack of supervision during the partial government shutdown.

Park rangers and other staffers are among the more than 380,000 federal employees furloughed during the shutdown that is in its 12th day. read more

Some on the Left have Figured Out the Myth of Organic Farming

Regular readers of this site know that I publish a special interest stories regarding science, health and cool gadgets daily. Many are drawn from the website New Atlas.

While this site is exceptional for its cutting-edge health and technology news, it does lean to the left on many issues. One is most certainly global warming, climate change, or however we care to classify it today.

And as a regular reader, you also know that I am what many would consider a man-caused global warming denier. Notice I didn’t say climate change denier, for who in their right mind can deny that the climate has and is constantly changing over time.

That being said, one of the left’s causes for combating CO2 emissions and thus global warming is “sustainable” farming, a euphemism for organic farming. read more

Video Podcast – Another Global Warming Study Debunked

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Okay, so let’s talk global warming again. Wish there was some.

What I’ll be discussing today could be another cold, calculated attempt to try to convince us that global warming is happening and it’s all man’s fault, or we can just chalk it up to simply human error and definitely not intentional.

Gee, I wonder which side I come down on.

Global warming alarmists dressed up in white science lab coats are at it again. And as predictably as the sun rising in the East, global warming activists dressed up as journalists are giving the latest alarmist “research” paper unwavering and uncontested support and coverage.

But there is one brave soul – one brave scientist who had the courage to look at the research study objectively and release his own conclusions. read more

California Wildfires Were 100 Years in the Making

I think all would agree that the California wildfires have been a tragic loss to life and property. The devastation caused has been

Prescribed Burn

nothing short of catastrophic. Video and pictures of the town of Paradise should cause anyone’s heart to sink.

However, this is not a disaster born of natural causes, but human-caused, and most of these wildfires could have been mitigated if not prevented all together, should the State of California and the federal government have heeded decades old warnings.

The federal government, for a century or so, has been taking various States’ forested lands in order to prevent mining, logging and “urban sprawl.” There goal is to keep these forests as pristine as possible, unaltered by human hands.

In February, 2018, California’s Little Hoover Commission published an 82 page report entitled “Fire on the Mountain: Rethinking Forest Management in the Sierra Nevada.” read more

Liberals in Washington State Like Money more than a Carbon Tax

from IBD:

Climate Alarmists Suffer Huge Blow As Liberal Washington State Votes Down Carbon Tax

Environmentalists were hoping to score a huge victory in Washington state with a statewide tax on CO2 emissions. Alas, even liberals in Washington don’t believe climate change is that big a threat.

Before the election, glowing stories in the press talked about Washington “taking up the fight” on climate change after President Donald Trump dropped out of the Paris climate deal. The state would make history. It would be a “bellwether,” and would start a trend across the country.

Carbon Tax

The initiative proposed a $15 tax on each ton of carbon emissions in the state starting in 2020, with the tax rate climbing each year. It would have cost families in the state nearly $1,000 a year by 2035. read more

A few days ago NASA’s IceBridge project hit the news, but not for any of its impressive scientific observations. Instead, a casually tweeted photo of a strange rectangular iceberg captured people’s imagination. Now, NASA has offered up a few more shots, and video, of this unusual sight, helping explain this common yet rarely seen phenomenon. read more
