Report: China’s Electric Vehicle Industry Destroying the Environment in Indonesia

JOHN HAYWARD 29 Nov 2022 – for Breitbart.com A report published Monday by the tech website Rest of World (RoW) exposed the horrifying environmental cost of manufacturing all those “clean” electric vehicles. RoW took a hard look at how the demand for crucial metals from China’s booming EV industry has ravaged parts of Indonesia, creating a hell on earth that might never be cleaned up. RoW called its report The Dirty Road to Clean Energy: How China’s Electric Vehicle Boom Is Ravaging the Environment. The name highlights the uncomfortable truth that “green energy” proponents have decided to simply ignore the environmental devastation caused by … Continue reading Report: China’s Electric Vehicle Industry Destroying the Environment in Indonesia

Unlocking Fusion Power Would Revolutionize Energy. The Hard Part Is Making It Work

Scientists and startups are edging closer to realizing a decades-old dream. Stephen Shankland Nov. 16, 2022 12:00 p.m. PT – for Cnet.com My cmnt: The future of electric power generation for the world is coal, natural gas and oil for at least the next 30 years. Climate change is unavoidable and is strictly a religious (nature worshiping democrats) sentiment with no real science behind it. Carbon Dioxide is NOT a pollutant and does NOT drive global warming. It is plant food and is necessary in the atmosphere to continue feeding the world. Libs hate people which is why they want … Continue reading Unlocking Fusion Power Would Revolutionize Energy.

Biden’s Magic Electric Cars: Inconvenient Facts

John Stossel |  Nov 16, 2022 – for Townhall.com My cmnt: Electric cars, like every other Green Dream of the Left and democrats, solve nothing. They still require electricity produced by nuclear, coal and natural gas. They require vast amounts of oil to run the machines to produce electric cars and their horribly polluting batteries. They cannot heat the car during winter nor cool the car during summer. Producing batteries is more polluting than pumping and using oil. Carbon dioxide is NOT a pollutant but is in fact plant food and needed to produce the vast amounts of crops we need … Continue reading Biden’s Magic Electric Cars: Inconvenient Facts

High Gas Prices: Obama’s Half-Truths vs. Reality

By Nicolas Loris – February 23, 2012 – for The Heritage Foundation My cmnt: I found this in my files from 2012 and decided to publish it as we see history and democrat policy repeating itself under Faux-president O’Biden. The same failed ideology drives our fuel prices (especially gas and oil) up every time it’s tried. They will never learn because their worldview is nearly completely disconnected from reality. The national average for gas prices is almost $3.60 per gallon, increasing 40 cents from a year ago and jumping 20 cents from just one month ago.[1] Prices are already surpassing $4 per … Continue reading High Gas Prices: Obama’s Half-Truths vs. Reality

Hurricane Hype, Lies, Censorship – and Reality

Paul Driessen | Posted: Oct 09, 2022 12:01 AM – for Townhall.com Hurricane Ian is in the history books, having unleashed its Category 4 fury on southwestern Florida. Even as the area slowly digs out and rebuilds, the devastation and tragedies will linger in reality and memories.   Ian was the latest of 123 hurricanes to hit the Sunshine State since official recordkeeping began in 1851. But not surprisingly, some wasted no time trying to link Ian to the most dominant issue of our time.  Climate change is “rapidly fueling super hurricanes,” a Washington Post headline proclaimed. “I grew up … Continue reading Hurricane Hype, Lies, Censorship – and Reality

Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions

Climate Alarmists have a long history of being wrong – Will we never learn? By Myron Ebell and Steven J. Milloy – 09/18/2019 – for Competitive Enterprise Institute Thanks go to Tony Heller, who first collected many of these news clips and posted them on RealClimateScience.  SUMMARY Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today. None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true. What follows is a collection of notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science. More than merely spotlighting the failed … Continue reading Wrong Again: 50 Years of Failed Eco-pocalyptic Predictions

How Google and MSM Use “Fact Checkers” to Flood Us with Fake Claims

My cmnt: The absolute evil of the Left, the democrats and the MSM (mainstream media – that is all of the alphabet networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS, etc.) the large city newspapers (i.e., The New York Times, The LA Times, The Boston Globe, etc.)) putting out fake news and then rebutting their own fake news when conservatives reference it is the very definition of entrapment. They ought to be ashamed of themselves if they had any shame left. Guest essay by Leo Goldstein – Oct 30, 2017 – for Watts Up With That The Left implemented a novel technique … Continue reading How Google and MSM Use “Fact Checkers” to Flood Us with Fake Claims

Billionaire No More: Patagonia Founder Gives Away the Company

By David Gelles – The New York Times – Sept. 14, 2022Updated 5:45 p.m. ET My cmnt: Here, at last, is an honest environmental billionaire. He walks the walk and not just talks the talk. Of course it is nearly meaningless what the entire West is doing to so-called “combat” climate change. Not only is that impossible but it is ruining America and the West. While China and India continue to build coal and nuclear plants we decommission ours. If the damn Libs were really serious about stopping climate change (not possible) they would advocate war against the world’s biggest polluters … Continue reading Billionaire No More: Patagonia Founder Gives Away the Company

My cmnt: Also click this link: Newsweek 1975: The Cooling Worldhttps://iseethics.files.wor…The closing paragraph is a hoot. “‘The trouble with almost all environmental problems,’ says Paul R.

So-Called Inflation Reduction Act Will Make Stagflation Worse

Matthew Dickerson / July 28, 2022 – for the Daily Signal My cmnt: Biden’s first – unnecessary – massive (vote buying) spending bill of nearly $2 trillion dollars in 2021 lit the fuse that blew-up inflation. Of course his – unnecessary – curtailing of oil leases, killing the Keystone pipeline and making it impossible to build new oil refineries – all while blaming Russia (what is it with these democrats NOW blaming Russia for everything while just a few years ago and forever they have loved the Soviets) for the high gas prices at the pump. After more than a year of … Continue reading So-Called Inflation Reduction Act Will Make Stagflation Worse

Beware: 100% Green Energy Could Destroy the Planet

By Stephen Moore – Posted: Jun 07, 2022 – for Townhall.com My cmnt: Electric vehicles can never replace the internal combustion engine – period. And the mining of rare earth and other metals is an environmental nightmare just to make windmills, solar panels and car batteries. Green is the color of envy and is unbecoming on everyone. The untold story about “green energy” is that it can’t possibly be scaled up to provide anywhere near the energy to replace fossil fuels. (Unless we are headed back to the stone ages, which is what some of the “de-growth” advocates favor). Right … Continue reading Beware: 100% Green Energy Could Destroy the Planet

Environmentalism is the new socialism

By CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER | Orange County Register December 11, 2009 at 12:00 a.m. My cmnt: These are three columns from my files that seem as appropriate on this Earth Day as when they were written. Environmentalism and Earth Day in particular is a religious celebration of the Left and all nature worshipers. C.S. Lewis wrote that the worshipping of nature is like being so enamored with the postman and his uniform that you fail to read the letter he delivered. WASHINGTON In the 1970s and early ’80s, having seized control of the U.N. apparatus (by power of numbers), Third World countries decided … Continue reading Environmentalism is the new socialism

Oh how history repeats itself – Joe Biden political cartoons from 2009

I pulled these cartoons from my file. They show Joe Biden already a gaffe-producing idiot, Barack Obama a disaster of a president, the taxpayer bailout of democrat-induced bank failures and malfeasance, Nancy Pelosi evil, Algore global warming lies, and the Chinese coronavirus (H1N1) swine flu trying to be made into a pandemic by the Left. I have also added some cartoons from 2022 after the senile, old, demented jackass has spent two years ruining the country.

Electric Vehicle Push Is Sparking Massive Deforestation, Environmental Damage

By THOMAS CATENACCI ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT REPORTER for Daily Caller My cmnt: Look, electric cars can never replace gas-powered cars, period. This is a democrat pipe dream. An electric car needs heating and A/C in most of the regions of the U.S. This is not possible to do with a battery or even a bunch of batteries and never will be. So supplemental gas-powered engines (the so-called hybrid gas/electric vehicle) will always be needed. The end result is nonsense and will produce as much overall pollution and more than before. My cmnt: Windmills and solar panels will never replace fossil … Continue reading Electric Vehicle Push Is Sparking Massive Deforestation, Environmental Damage

Obama spotted maskless, surrounded by masked construction workers at new Hawaii mansion

The former president was speaking with a group of masked construction developers By Emma Colton | Fox News – Feb 7, 2022 – for Fox news My cmnt: If the lying global warming hypocrites actually believed their hype all of them would be selling their beachfront properties (the Obamas have multi-million dollar mansions on both Martha’s Vineyard and Hawaii water fronts) and moving further inland because they’ve all told us that the oceans are rising and New York City will soon be under water. My cmnt: Not bad for a former community organizer and a minor hospital administrator. They go into politics … Continue reading Obama spotted maskless, surrounded by masked construction workers at new Hawaii mansion

Fauci Emails Show We Should Question the ‘Science’ on Climate Change

Katie Pavlich | Posted: Jun 04, 2021 2:20 PM – for Townhall.com This week, thousands of emails belonging to National Institutes of Health Director Dr. Anthony Fauci were released after a Freedom of Information Act request was filed by Buzzfeed and the Washington Post.  The biggest revelations from the document dump include Fauci being told Wuhan coronavirus was “potentially engineered” in a lab, show him arguing drug store masks don’t offer protection from the disease, that he frantically sent papers to colleagues about dangerous gain-of-function research and downplayed the need for a vaccine.  Publicly, Fauci was telling a different story, … Continue reading Fauci Emails Show We Should Question the ‘Science’ on Climate Change

The “Science” Mantra

By Thomas Sowell – Dec 22, 2009 – for Townhall.com My cmnt: Tho’ this was written twelve years ago it is as pertinent for our times as if it had been written today. Since the intelligentsia (as Sowell refers to the Liberal Elite below) decided that Darwinism would assist in the overthrow of the Biblical worldview that underpinned Western culture it has been promoted and insisted upon as science despite the nearly total absence of factual evidence in support of it and the suppression of vast amounts of evidence that contradict most of its central tenets.

Hypocrites Cleared to Land: Glasgow Climate Conference Draws 400+ Private Jets

Carbon for me, but not for thee. SIMON KENT – 2 Nov 2021 – for Breitbart.news My cmnt: Click here for another interesting and entertaining article on EarthDay from 2008. This guy was one of the first to note the ongoing hypocrisy of EarthDay worshippers. Plus he’s kind of funny. My cmnt: People have asked me about this concept of global warming/CO2 hypocrisy. They say that if global warming/CO2 is the impending catastrophe they say it is shouldn’t we listen to their dire warnings even if they are hypocrites themselves? No. The reason is twofold. First, if they really believed … Continue reading Hypocrites Cleared to Land: Glasgow Climate Conference Draws 400+ Private Jets

Bill Gates, Warren Buffett building nuclear reactor in coal-rich Wyoming

By Will Feuer June 4, 2021 | 1:08pm | Updated – for The New York Post Billionaire buddies Bill Gates and Warren Buffett are teaming up to build a nuclear reactor — on the site of a coal plant that’s being phased out in Wyoming. Nuclear reactor design company TerraPower, which Gates founded about 15 years ago, and power company PacifiCorp, which is owned by Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway, are partners on the Natrium nuclear reactor pilot project, the companies said. The Department of Energy is also involved in the project through funding and a cooperative agreement. TerraPower claims its Natrium reactor, which was designed in … Continue reading Bill Gates, Warren Buffett building nuclear reactor in coal-rich Wyoming

Healthy Polar Bears and Thriving Tigers: The Common Climate Tale

Vijay Jayaraj | Posted: Dec 12, 2020 12:01 AM – for Townhall.com Editor’s note: this column was coauthored by Calvin Beisner.  My cmnt: I included the chart below to show that the climate always changes but man-made global warming is a scare tactic that is not happening. The climate warms and cools all the time. This is mostly due to solar activity and sunspot increase or decrease. The earth is also affected by volcanic activity. Neither of these two major contributors to climate change are under the control of man. When I was taking Western History at UNL in 1971 … Continue reading Healthy Polar Bears and Thriving Tigers: The Common Climate Tale

IEA report shows Biden climate policies make US entirely dependent on China

from JunkScience.com Check out how Biden climate policies (i.e., more wind, solar and EVs) would increase out dependency on China for raw materials and processing.  Here is the IEA report. Below are the two key graphs. You would think the green desire for more wind, solar and EVs would grease the skids for more domestic production of vital materials. But you would be wrong.  Check out the front-page New York Times article today on how greens are working to stop lithium production in the US.  If both Biden and the greens succeed, US national security will be entirely compromised.

Due to Global Warming unprecedented cold hits U.S.

By Sycophant Press – Feb 15, 2021 – from the AP Dateline: Lincoln, Neb. Democrat Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird acknowledges that the citizens of Lincoln are in for a Dark Winter echoing her mentor and spirit-guide, fake president Joseph O’Biden. “He who walks in Darkness” warned us that there would be shortages of natural gas after he closed America’s largest natural gas reservoir in the Marcellus Shale (PA & WV) – 2,836 billion cubic feet. Mayor Baird continued, ‘It is unfortunate, and no one expected it would happen so quickly, but we are going to have some rolling blackouts of … Continue reading Due to Global Warming unprecedented cold hits U.S.

Mayor unable to clear snow but proud of gender representation on snowplows

By Sycophant Press – Jan 26, 2021 – from the AP Dateline: Lincoln, Ne. Democrat Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird acknowledges that citizens of Lincoln are upset that she has failed to clear the streets. She says that Nebraskans have a bad habit of wanting to get to work and need to chill out and get with the times. In Portland, Oregon, where mayor Baird hails from (and is currently on fire again from recent riots by Antifa and BLM) people gladly stay home from work for three days before and three days after any appreciable snow fall. She fails to … Continue reading Mayor unable to clear snow but proud of gender representation on snowplows

No Need to Panic About Global Warming

The Wall Street Journal OPINION JANUARY 27, 2012 No Need to Panic About Global Warming There’s no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to ‘decarbonize’ the world’s economy. My cmnt: Anyone with any real knowledge of the history of science knows that ‘scientific consensus’ is not how we settle scientific arguments.   Too many times to mention has scientific consensus been proved wrong by later discoveries.   What matters in science is demonstrable data and facts available to everyone that show some article of scientific doctrine to be correct, at least for the time being. The science we universally teach … Continue reading No Need to Panic About Global Warming

Earth Day at 50: Progress, Not Politics, Cleaned Up America

by Steve Milloy – for Real Clear Politics  June 2020 Environmental activists decreed in 1970 that April 22 was to be commemorated as Earth Day. Fifty years later, if you listen to these activists, especially as they are fog-horned by the mainstream media, you might get the impression that our environment is in more jeopardy than ever. Is this true?  Let’s stipulate that post-World War II America was much dirtier than 2020 America. Industrial cities were beset with smog. Pollution in rivers caught fire. Waste dumps weren’t always managed well. Not much thought was given to use and exposure to … Continue reading Earth Day at 50: Progress, Not Politics, Cleaned Up America

The Real Climate Science Deniers

Paul Driessen|Posted: May 16, 2020 12:01 AM – for TownHall.com Posted: May 16, 2020 12:01 AM Fifty years ago, I helped organize Earth Day #1 programs on my college campus, calling attention to serious pollution problems that afflicted much of the USA. Over the ensuing decades, laws, regulations, and changed attitudes, practices and technologies reduced most of that pollution, often dramatically. I didn’t buy into the 1970 end-is-nigh, doom-and-gloom, billions-will-die hysteria that Ron Stein and Ron Bailey summarize, including the manmade global cooling crisis. I don’t buy it today, either – certainly not this year’s Earth Day focus on the alleged manmade global warming crisis, also blamed on emissions … Continue reading The Real Climate Science Deniers

University dumps professor who found polar bears thriving despite climate change

By Valerie Richardson – The Washington Times – Sunday, October 20, 2019 Nobody has done more to sink the claim that climate change is endangering polar bears than zoologist Susan Crockford — and she may have paid for it with her job. After 15 years as an adjunct assistant professor, Ms. Crockford said the University of Victoria rejected without explanation in May her renewal application, despite her high profile as a speaker and author stemming from her widely cited research on polar bears and dog domestication. Ms. Crockford accused officials at the Canadian university of bowing to “outside pressure,” the result of her research showing that polar … Continue reading University dumps professor who found polar bears thriving despite climate change

Climate ‘Experts’ have poor track record

Breitbart News Climate ‘Experts’ Are 0-41 with Their Doomsday Predictions by JOHN NOLTE 20 Sep 2019 For more than 50 years Climate Alarmists in the scientific community and environmental movement have not gotten even one prediction correct, but they do have a perfect record of getting 41 predictions wrong. In other words, on at least 41 occasions, these so-called experts have predicted some terrible environmental catastrophe was imminent … and it never happened. And not once — not even once! — have these alarmists had one of their predictions come true. Think about that… the so-called experts are 0-41 with … Continue reading Climate ‘Experts’ have poor track record

Concerned Scientists Reply on Global Warming

My cmnt: With the further politicalization of science by the world’s Leftists and nature worshipers we must all be on our guard against false claims of ‘science’ and scientists who, like in the former Soviet Union and Russia today, demand consensus rather than actual observations to be the determining factor in what is science and what is not. Wall Street Journal on-line OPINION February 21, 2012 Concerned Scientists Reply on Global Warming The authors of the Jan. 27 Wall Street Journal op-ed, ‘No Need to Panic about Global Warming,’ respond to their critics.
