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

Squishy Republicans Accept the Left’s Socialist Climate Change Hoax

from Conservative Review:

Republicans embrace socialism in climate change message

What a crock.

In an article titled, “GOP hoping voters open to warnings of Democrats’ socialism,” the Associated Press looks at Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., who has been telling town hall participants that socialism is afoot and that he wants everyone to join him in the fight against it.

The article is slanted, as most AP articles are. Its writer tried to make the point, by interviewing random people, that Republicans are stoking fear when the issue really doesn’t faze most people. The article ends with a wry warning to Republicans that crying wolf over Democrats’ socialist views might actually hurt them in 2020. read more

Words Have Meaning – It’s Why the Left Keeps Changing Them

from Victor Davis Hanson for IBD:

Changing Reality With Words

The reinvention of vocabulary can often be more effective than any social protest movement. Malarial swamps can become healthy “wetlands.” Fetid “dumps” are often rebranded as green “landfills.”

Global warming was once a worry about too much heat. It implied that man-made carbon emissions had so warmed the planet that life as we knew it would soon be imperiled without radical changes in consumer lifestyles.

Yet in the last 30 years, record cold spells, inordinate snow levels and devastating rains have been common. How to square that circle? read more

Video Podcast – Climate Change Collapsed an Empire – Democrat Amendments

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Akkadia was the world’s first empire.

It was established in Mesopotamia around 4,300 years ago after its ruler, Sargon of Akkad, united a series of independent city states.

Yet after just 100 years, the empire collapsed due to … Climate Change.

But when they tried to flee the empire they discovered their enemies to the South had built a border wall to keep them out.

Democrat Rep. Steve Cohen of Tennessee introduced two Constitutional Amendments after the dems took back the House.

The first is to limit the President’s Constitutional authority to grant pardons. Like everything for the next two years, it’s all to hamper Trump’s presidential powers.

The second is to abolish the Electoral College. Democrats wish elections of the President to be determined only by popular vote. 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

Video Podcast – Climate Hype is back in Vogue – the Midterm Debacle

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

The Atlantic.com recently wrote of the origin of climate science. Interestingly, it coincides with the Western industrial revolution and Western Imperialism. Also interesting is the fact that we in the West are the only ones concerned with man-caused climate change. The rest of the world is just trying to survive.

Also, a short recap of the cheaters trying to steal the last contested midterm elections. read more

WND Exclusive – Gotta Love Wind Energy – Not Really

For decades we’ve been bombarded by leftist environmentalists and global warming alarmists that renewable energy is the only way to go – the only way to save our planet from burning up.

States like Hawaii and California have even enacted mandates which dictate, by a certain year, that all electricity in these states must be derived from clean, non-carbon emitting “renewable” sources like solar and wind.

So obsessed has the left become with evil carbon, which happens to be the essential building block of all life, that they are overlooking a myriad of problems with their renewable cure all – especially when it comes to wind power.

Adding to wind energy’s rash of problems is the latest study done by researchers at Harvard which shows that wind energy actually causes global warming. Yes, you read that right. Wind power causes global warming. Isn’t that rich. read more

Globe is Cooling – That’s Why We Call it Climate Change

from IBD:

Don’t Tell Anyone, But We Just Had Two Years Of Record-Breaking Global Cooling

NASA data show that global temperatures dropped sharply over the past two years. Not that you’d know it, since that wasn’t deemed news. Does that make NASA a global warming denier?

Writing in Real Clear Markets, Aaron Brown looked at the official NASA global temperature data and noticed something surprising. From February 2016 to February 2018, “global average temperatures dropped by 0.56 degrees Celsius.” That, he notes, is the biggest two-year drop in the past century. read more

Celebrating Earth Day with the Silliness

Assuming you lead a normal life, you, like me, were probably unaware that Sunday was Earth Day. And like me, you probably don’t give a crap. But many green-warriors sure did. And as a tip of hat to the green-weenies, the Daily Caller has complied a list. 

A list of the:

The Dumbest Things You Could Do To Save The Earth From Global Warming

Environmentalists sometimes propose radical solutions to save the world from global warming — a disaster some say will destroy almost all life on Earth if not dealt with quickly and radically.

In honor of Earth Day on April 22, The Daily Caller News Foundation compiled a list of solutions suggested or tried, largely unsuccessfully, by environmentalists to roll back the effects of global warming. read more

The White Streets of L.A.

from The American Spectator:

Yes, painting streets.

Having just recently extricated myself from the City of Angels after twenty-two years there, I can recite a litany of taxpayer abuses almost reflexively. Big American cities that have been run by liberals for decades never have a second thought about burdening their citizens, often for the most insane, feel-good, liberal reasons.

Very few things scream “nonsensical waste of time and money” like whichever boondoggle Climate Church orthodoxy is forcing upon the public at any given time. read more
