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.

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

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

$1500 Tiny House

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
