According to a recent international study, aviation is responsible for 3.5 percent of all human activities that drive climate change. Airbus is looking to a cleaner future for the commercial aircraft industries, where hydrogen powers the zero-emissions aircraft of tomorrow.

SHELLENBERGER: On Behalf Of Environmentalists, I Apologize For The Climate Scare
On behalf of environmentalists everywhere, I would like to formally apologize for the climate scare we created over the last 30 years. Climate change is happening. It’s just not the end of the world. It’s not even our most serious environmental problem.
I may seem like a strange person to be saying all of this. I have been a climate activist for 20 years and an environmentalist for 30.
But as an energy expert asked by Congress to provide objective expert testimony, and invited by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to serve as Expert Reviewer of its next Assessment Report, I feel an obligation to apologize for how badly we environmentalists have misled the public.
Not even during a pandemic, do the enviro-weenies take a break. Nothing will stand in the way of seeing their dream of 100% emission free energy. And after they’ve achieved that, they can purchase the bridge in Brooklyn I have for sale.

Clean Energy Via Legislative Diktat
For those enamored by the clean electric-car, smoke-and-mirrors “emission elsewhere scheme” comes the recently enacted “Virginia Clean Economy Act”, which includes one of the largest energy storage targets in the country at 2.4 GW by 2035, and prompts state regulators to craft a carbon dioxide cap and trade program that meets the objectives of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).

Just when Americans are beginning to see a sliver of light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel – just as some businesses are coming back online and the authoritarian Governors can see a bit of power and control slipping away, an old stalwart crisis is waiting in the wings. But there’s a refreshing new take on this aging crisis.
I’m talking about one of the left’s go-to crises.
No, it’s not racism. It’s not social justice. It’s not gender inequality, or income inequality. Sorry – I forgot how many go-to crises the left has.
No, I’m talking about Climate Change.
But how do you make such a tired old crisis like Climate Change seem new? I mean, it’s been around for several decades now. There’s nothing new about it. The “experts” haven’t discovered anything new or Earth shattering. The climate is just chugging along as it always has. It cools off and warms up at relatively regular intervals, just as it has for centuries.

Horowitz: Senate pushing bipartisan green energy social engineering bill
While there is no bipartisan clamor to use GOP Senate control to force votes on sanctuary cities, there is a rush to pass a bipartisan bill dumping more money into green energy programs. Some might have thought we were done with the green energy venture socialism after the Obama era of Solyndra scandals, but in Washington, both parties are addicted to corporate welfare. Hence the rush to pass S. 2657, the American Energy Innovation Act.
It’s hard to call this bill bipartisan, given that the lead GOP sponsor is Sen. Lisa Murkowski. Yet even after voting against Kavanaugh and flirting with support for impeachment, she seems to control the Senate floor agenda more than anyone pushing the Trump agenda on immigration.

In Victory For Trump, Appeals Court Says Feds Can Withhold Grants From Sanctuary Cities
Ruling could tee up Supreme Court battle
The Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Wednesday that the Trump administration can withhold federal funds from sanctuary jurisdictions for refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities in a decision that will likely trigger a Supreme Court review.
A number of cities have challenged the Justice Department policy that would withhold federal law enforcement grants from cities that refuse to cooperate with illegal immigration enforcement. The Second Circuit ruled against New York City’s challenge to the policy, but three other appeals courts have upheld injunctions that required the Trump administration to disperse the contested funds. The split between the circuit courts increases the likelihood that the issue will ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court, as justices generally take cases featuring questions over which multiple courts disagree.

I haven’t talked about Climate change in a while. So what latest utterly stupid idea from the leftist warming-mongers?
Well, you’ll be happy to know that they’ve gotten more creative by combining climate change with racism.

I truly feel sorry for Greta Thunberg.
This poor kid has been so utterly brainwashed that there may be no coming back from it.
She has not only bought into the climate apocalypse lie, but has been successfully sold the entire anti-capitalist, anti-freedom agenda.
Leftism is a religion. It is the religion of everything anti-capitalist, anti-individualism, anti-individual freedom and rights. It’s communism dressed up as utopian socialist collectivism. And she and countless other lost souls of her age have found a warped purpose doing the bidding of their elder radicals.

The hypocrisy of the left is sometimes so over-the-top that it becomes almost incomprehensible. And the irony is evidently lost on them all.
At the same time, last Saturday, as that eco-privileged children stormed the field during the Yale-Harvard football game, the leftist democrat presidential candidates were having a cookout in Iowa, where they cooked up over 10,000 steaks, using noxious barbecue grills which bellow out smoke and warm the planet. All the major players were in attendance, grilling away.
Yet on the very same day and from the climate warming grill-fest, some of the most staunch (and phony) eco-warrior candidates were tweeting their support for the football field protest to combat climate change/fossil fuel/global warming.
From the smoke filled grill-fest, Bernie Sanders, who is backed by Green New Dealer, AOC, tweeted: “Congratulations to the young people demanding a sustainable future for our planet. We are with you in this fight.” In his defense, Bernie does know quite a bit about fossil fuel, as he is himself, a fossil.
What we anti-alarmists have been saying for years is as true now as it was then – that green is the new red. That socialist/communists never go away. They just find a new cause that fits to a tee, their communist ideology. And the radical green movement does just that.
A group of radicals shuts down an anti-man-caused warming conference in Munich Germany, only because the conference disagrees with the left’s myopic view that only man can cause the climate to warm. And of course no one is allowed to have a differing opinion. One must tow the warmist line or be silenced.
But the proof, once again, that green is the new red, is in the name of the group – the “Anti-Capitalist Climate Society.”
