Global Warming Activists Posing as Scientists Protest Trump

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

Billionaires Assuage Their Guilt by Investing in Climate Change

Just yesterday the Huffington Post gleefully announced that Bill Gates, the world’s richest man, with a net worth of $87.4 billion, is combining his vast resources with 20 or more other billionaires to fight…what else…climate change.

I may have misspoken when I said he was going to combine his “vast resources.” He’s not really. He and 20 or so other fat-cats have established the “Breakthrough Energy Ventures fund.”

Combined these 20 wildly wealthy individuals will chip in a total of $1 billion, “to build companies that will help deliver the next generation of reliable, affordable, and emissions-free energy to the world,” Gates said. A bit of a paltry figure considering their cumulative wealth is in excess of $170 billion. But still, a billion dollars is nothing to sneeze at. Oh, and the initiative plans to invest in “green energy” over 20 years.

The HuffPo writes that, “The fund will focus its investments on projects relating to a number of clean energy issues such as carbon emission reduction and energy generation and storage.” Gates added that, “In addition to mitigating climate change, affordable clean energy will help fight poverty.” 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

My WND Weekly Exclusive

Stupidity is in the eye of the beholder

I think most would agree that Cambridge professor Stephen Hawking is one the smartest guys on the planet. And given his several cameo appearances on “The Big Bang Theory,” he appears to have a good sense of humor. Yet even someone as brilliant as he can have some pretty wacky views.

Hawking says he believes “pollution and human ‘stupidity’ remain the biggest threats to mankind. …” I certainly agree with him regarding “stupidity” being a major threat. After all, look how many millions voted for Hillary Clinton. 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

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.

 

Podcast – Do Hooters Girls Make Good Camp Counselors – Green Weenie Leo DiCaprio’s Latest Hypocrisy

It seems Hooters Colorado thought it would be a fine idea to sponsor a Boy Scout Summer Day Camp. Yes – Hooters and the Boy Scouts – like two peas in a pod. But when some of the parents came to pick up their young male campers at the end of the day, they were more than a bit surprised to see the Hooters girls helping out and taking pictures with the campers.

Segment two, the discussion turns to the new prince of Green Weeniedom, Leonardo DiCaprio who, like so many other idiotic environmental activists, spends his time killing the planet with his globe-trotting in an effort to save it – or at least preach to us about how we all must cut back. He and 500 other A-listers are all flying to St. Tropez to attend Leo’s annual foundation gala. Just how much CO2 are they churning out to get there – I wonder. read more

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Climate Inquisition

by: the Common Constitutionalist

The Climate alarmists are losing it. As each year of the “hiatus” passes – now over a decade of no warming – climate change warriors become more unhinged. They are losing the argument and they know it. Polls regarding what is most important to Americans continue to rank man caused climate change dead last or near the bottom consistently.

But liberals, as we know, never give up on a cause – certainly not this one. In fact, global warming long ago ceased becoming just a cause. It has morphed into a religion, and the faithful followers of this religious sect require all to believe. I would liken the religion of climate change, not to Christianity or Judaism, but more akin to radical Islam. There can be no global warming atheists or even agnostics. All must believe – all must convert – or pay the price.

Oh, I don’t mean that warmists will behead non-believers, but they will and have publicly shamed skeptics, ruined the careers and lives of apostate scientists and academics, as well as attempting to sue deniers like Mark Steyn for millions of dollars for calling the “hockey stick” warming model a lie. read more

No Need to Fret over Global Warming – We Will Just Evolve

by: the Common Constitutionalist

“We’ve got to accelerate the transition away from dirty energy. Rather than subsidize the past, we should invest in the future especially in communities that rely on fossil fuels. That’s why I’m going to push to change the way we manage our oil and coal resources, so that they better reflect the costs they impose on taxpayers and our planet.” That’s what the president exclaimed in his dog and pony show Tuesday night.

But really, is it already too late for that? Americans have been told that global warming will surely cause worldwide drought. At the same time it will cause massive coastal flooding due to melting of all the ice over the entire globe. Even the ice in your freezer will melt.

I suppose then, for those living along the coast it will get really wet and those inland, assuming there is any inland, there will be barren conditions, not to mention packing more and more people into an ever-shrinking land mass– so I guess its pick your poison. This is what the so-called global warming experts tell us. read more
