Prepare for a Worldwide Ash Cloud

With 130 volcanoes – both active and inactive – Iceland is one of the most intensely volcanic places in the world.

An expert has now warned that four of the country’s biggest volcanoes are priming to erupt, which could lead to travel chaos.

The volcanoes in question are Katla, Hekla, Bárðarbunga and Grímsvötn – three of which have already erupted in the last 20 years.

The warning follows the 2010’s explosive eruption of Icelandic volcano Eyjafjallajökull, which caused more than 10 million air passengers to be stranded and cost the European economy an estimated £4 billion ($4.9 billion).

$22 Million – The Cost of Policing Loony Protesters

Protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline continue, but you’d never know about the cost for policing those protests after watching some news coverage.

According to January 9 figures from the Morton County (North Dakota) Sheriff’s Department, state and local response to pipeline protests has cost $22.3 million thus far. But Media Research Center and its Newsbusters division says the broadcast evening news shows paid no attention to that on January 10. read more

Global Warming Activists Posing as Scientists Protest Trump

by: the Common Constitutionalist

On December 13, just a few days ago, some 26,000 scientists gathered “in the first major convening of climate scientists since the presidential election.”

Of course, there weren’t, as is described, 26,000 scientists. The 26,000 actually consisted of some “scientists” along with a gaggle of left wing environmentalist wackos who were there not for the “Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union,” but really to just protest the election of president “Climate denier.”

The anti-Trump rally called “Stand Up for Science,” was organized by ClimateTruth.Org and The Natural History Museum, a self-described “mobile and pop-up museum that champions bold climate action.” Neither of these “organizers” has anything to do with real science. They are there, as they all are, for one purpose – to push the man-made global warming agenda.

They claim their greatest fear is that president Trump will begin to dismantle all they have worked for. They are worried that he will decimate “laws and regulations that protect clean air and water, limit greenhouse gas emissions, and restrict drilling and mining offshore and on public land. Other concerns include Trump’s pledge to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.” read more

States Sue Feds Over New Life After People Regulations

A few days ago I heard Mark Levin discussing a lawsuit filed by 18 states over new federal government rules expanding the scope of “critical habitat” for endangered and threatened species.

The rules aren’t actually that new anymore, as they were published on February 2, 2016 and took effect on March 14, 2016. Still, I’m sure very few are aware of them, which is just the way the federal government likes it.

According to the Federal Register, these “final rules” are meant to, “amend portions of our regulations that implement the Endangered Species Act of 1973.” Isn’t that nice.

This is yet another exhausting example of the erection of progressive framework. The original “Endangered Species Act” was passed into law in 1973, under the progressive Nixon administration. This set up the original framework, which is all they ever need to get started. read more

Has Trump Scored Another Win with his EPA Selection

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Trump appears to be scoring a lot of points with the right, regarding his recent Cabinet selections. Just days after he selected Dr. Tom Price for Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS), he appears to have scored another potential winner. To learn more of Dr. Price, you may link to my article profiling him here.

This latest Trump selection is for the business and industry-killing Cabinet position of head of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). As we know, the EPA has done more than practically any other agency to set back the American economy and kill any attempted recovery. The current Director, Gina McCarthy, is a radical environmentalist with, amongst other things, a stated goal of killing off the entire American coal industry, not to mention oil, fracking, and any other industry she finds objectionable.

Her regulatory authoritarianism has been virtually unmatched and unchallenged. And she is evidently far from done. McCarthy is going down swinging in the waning hours of the Obama reign. I recently quoted her as saying: “As I’ve mentioned to you before, we’re running — not walking — through the finish line of President Obama’s presidency,” Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Gina McCarthy wrote agency employees the day after the Nov. 8 election. “Thank you for taking that run with me. I’m looking forward to all the progress that still lies ahead.” read more

Podcast – Children of ExxonMobil are Wracked with Guilt – Saudi Rehab Centers Recruit Jihadists – Czech Man Thinks he’s a Tiger

Two of descendants of John D. Rockefeller, the founder of Standard Oil, now ExxonMobil, are evidently guilty about their family legacy. So guilty are they over their dirty Big Oil legacy, that they are calling out the company, stating that ExxonMobil has downplayed the effect that oil drilling has had on Global Warming – because that’s what guilty rich liberals do.

Obama has been releasing terrorists from the prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, so he might finally fulfill his promise to close the facility and further his radical legacy. Some of those released have been sent to a rehabilitation center in Saudi Arabia. However this rehab center appears to be a front for recruiting jihadists.

Don’t do drugs! If you do, you may begin to think you are a wild animal, like a young man in the Czech Republic, who was caught on video by a trail camera, completely naked. He thought he was a Tiger. read more

Pool of Death Discovered on Sea Bed

It is known as the ‘jacuzzi of death’ – and is one of the oddest places on the planet.

Researchers first discovered a massive brine pool under the Gulf of Mexico in 2014 using a robosub.

Now, they have returned to create the first high resolution map of the area – and say it could hold the key to finding life on other planets.

Scroll down for video 

The first high resolution map of the 'jacuzzi of despair' that kills almost anything that swims into it. The circular pool - about 100 feet in circumference and about 12 feet deep - lies nearly 3,300 feet below the surface of the Gulf. This image was created from 2,000 stills taken by a robosub.

The Hitler Youth of 2016

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

The Hitler Youth Movement, or Wandervögel, began in 1920 with few members. By the 1930’s its ranks had swelled into the millions.

The children were indoctrinated in the ways of the Arian Nation and brainwashed to believe only in teachings of the Führer – not their teachers, friends – not even their parents.

Today, the same appears to be happening to our young skulls full of mush (h/t: Rush), as they are being similarly indoctrinated and brainwashed to believe global warming is happening and mankind is the one and only cause.

The Weather Channel had long ago sold out to the global warming lobby, but the nation, and frankly the world, is no longer buying into their hysteria.

The United Nations publishes a poll each year ranking the concerns of millions throughout the globe. The most recent was released just a couple of weeks ago. Of the 10 million or so people who responded, global warming, or climate change, ranked dead last amongst the list of pressing issues – even below the need for “phone and internet access.” read more

A Letter from the U.N.’s Latest Eco-Conference

from: Craig Rucker at CFACT:

Why does the UN hate your house?

Friend,

After spending two days at the UN’s Habitat III in Ecuador, it is abundantly clear the Greens are not hip on the American dream.

For many gathered here, the notion that it’s a good thing to own a home with a nice front lawn and two car garage is akin to admitting it’s o.k. to smoke cigarettes, drive an SUV, or worse yet … vote for a conservative.

What do they have against the American dream? Well in listening to them it seems to be clear they don’t trust people to be able to make the “right” decisions. They need the UN’s guiding hand to show them the path to eco-topia.

I heard this for myself when attending a briefing today (with what I might say had the somewhat troubling title) called “Metropolitan Governance: Multi-Level Coordination for Comprehensive Territorial and Urban Planning.” One of the leaders of the panel from New York’s New University seemed excited by the idea that he could organize cadres of students to monitor and collect data to turn over to government leaders so they could better manage their subjects.

The chairman of another meeting called “Contextualizing and Inspiring Sustainability in the New Urban Agenda” called for “radical” measures in our cities to change their patterns of behavior in order to fend off climate change.

And yet another conference titled “The Role of Media in Building Better Cities” was all about influencing the power of the fourth estate to spread the message of doom and gloom and move the citizenry to an acceptance of green dogma. CFACT policy analyst Bonner Cohen gives more details in his article on the second day’s events at CFACT.org.

Yes, to those gathered here in Ecuador it’s all about control – whether it’s cramming people into dense urban dwellings, forcing them to use public transportation, or limiting their use of electricity to stop global warming, the leaders of Habitat III want to call the shots.

Of course the record of pursuing a path of heavy-handed government management over human affairs is an abysmal one – whether it’s undertaken in China, Cuba, Venezuela, North Korea or the former Soviet Union.. Human liberty and free markets have always provided better results. And while most of those at Habitat III aren’t open to hearing this, the good news is … some are – particularly in the developing world. I look forward to telling you more about that later.

In the meantime, be sure to follow CFACT’s ongoing coverage of the events here in Quitoat CFACT.org.

For nature and people too,

Don’t forget to visit CFACT  for all the news of the wacky enviro-leftists.

 

Easier Cheaper Desalinization

 Researchers from the University of Alexandria have developed a cheaper, simpler and potentially cleaner way to turn seawater into drinking water than conventional methods.

This could have a huge impact on rural areas of the Middle East and North Africa, where access to clean water is a pressing issue if social stability and economic development is to improve. read more
