Vatican Calls for ‘Unprecedented Collective Response’ to Climate Change

The Vatican has called for a “responsible, unprecedented collective response” to the “momentous challenge” of climate change.

Speaking on behalf of Pope Francis, Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Pietro Parolin said in an online address Monday to the Climate Adaptation Summit taking place in the Netherlands that climate change “represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day.”

“The scientific data at our disposal clearly show the urgent need for swift action,” Cardinal Parolin said. “The transition to a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions is a problem not only of the domain of technology, but also a question of consumption patterns, education, and lifestyles.”

The cardinal said that Pope Francis wished to assure participants in the Climate Adaptation Summit “of his closeness, support and encouragement in these days of intense effort.”

Boris Johnson to Launch New International Climate Change Coalition

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson will announce on Monday a new international coalition to tackle the impact of climate change and set the agenda of the COP26 UN Climate Conference to be held in Glasgow, Scotland, in November, his office said in a statement.

"To make sure we get not just warm words but real change, I am today launching an all-new Adaptation Action Coalition to set the agenda ahead of COP26," Johnson is expected to say in a virtual address to the Climate Adaption Summit to be hosted by the Netherlands.

The new Adaption Action Coalition was developed by the UK in partnership with Egypt, Bangladesh, Malawi, the Netherlands, Saint Lucia and the United Nations to turn international political commitments made through the United Nations Call for Action on Adaptation and Resilience into on-the-ground support for vulnerable communities.

Hundreds of climate scientists demand immediate end to Bill Gates’ genocidal “solar dimming” project

One of humanity’s primary sources of life, the sun, is under attack by genocidal maniac Bill Gates, who wants to artificially “dim” it with aerosols in order to stop “global warming.” A growing cohort of scientists, however, is saying no way.

The Calgary-based Friends of Science Society has issued a press release calling on Harvard University to stop working with Gates to “chemtrail” the sky in an attempt to block out the sun. Doing this presents serious atmospheric risks, not to mention unintended consequences that could result in an extinction-level event (ELE).

‘Failure not an option’, US climate envoy Kerry says, as he pushes to phase out coal FIVE times faster

America’s new climate envoy John Kerry has called for countries to phase out coal five times faster than they have been, and to speed up the transfer to renewable energy in order to hit net zero global carbon emissions by 2050.

After officially taking up his role on Wednesday, Kerry posted on Twitter to express his intention to get to work ahead of the COP26 Climate Change Summit in Glasgow, Scotland, later this year.

Speaking at an online event on Thursday, Kerry outlined some key climate change issues and concerns for meeting existing emissions targets, which he said will require the phasing out of coal at a faster rate and the rapid speeding up of the transfer to renewable sources of energy. Raising the stakes for a new collective international agreement, Kerry declared that “failure at the COP in Glasgow is not an option” if the world is to successfully achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, as previously planned.

WhatsApp growth slumps as rivals Signal, Telegram rise

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Encrypted messaging apps Signal and Telegram are seeing huge upticks in downloads from Apple and Google’s app stores. Facebook-owned WhatsApp, by contrast, is seeing its growth decline following a fiasco that forced the company to clarify a privacy update it had sent to users.

Mobile app analytics firm Sensor Tower said Wednesday that Signal saw 17.8 million app downloads on Apple and Google during the week of Jan. 5 to Jan. 12. That’s a 61-fold increase from just 285,000 the previous week. Telegram, an already-popular messaging app for people around the world, saw 15.7 million downloads in the Jan. 5 to Jan. 12 period, roughly twice the 7.6 million downloads it saw the previous week.

WhatsApp, meanwhile, saw downloads shrink to 10.6 million, down from 12.7 million the week before.

Imminent sudden stratospheric warming to occur, bringing increased risk of snow over coming weeks

A new study led by researchers at the Universities of Bristol, Exeter, and Bath helps to shed light on the winter weather we may soon have in store following a dramatic meteorological event currently unfolding high above the North Pole.

Weather forecasting models are predicting with increasing confidence that a sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) event will take place today, 5 January 2021.

The stratosphere is the layer of the atmosphere from around 10-50km above the earth's surface. SSW events are some of the most extreme of atmospheric phenomena and can see polar stratospheric temperature increase by up to 50°C over the course of a few days. Such events can bring very cold weather, which often result in snowstorms.

10 Climate Alarmist Predictions For 2020 That Went Horribly Wrong

Long before Beto O’Rourke claimed the world only had 10 years left for humans to act against climate change, alarmists had spent decades predicting one doomsday scenario after another, each of which stubbornly failed to materialize. It seems climate armageddon has taken a permanent sabbatical.

Many of those doomsday predictions specifically mentioned the annus horribilus of 2020. Those predictions also failed, some rather spectacularly.

Steve Milloy, a former Trump/Pence EPA transition team member and founder of, compiled ten climate predictions for 2020 that fell far off the mark.

Sacrificing freedom for the environment? German MP suggests restrictions ‘similar’ to Covid-19 lockdowns to fight climate change

Humanity should sacrifice “personal freedom” just as many nations did during the Covid-19 pandemic in order to successfully fight climate change, a German MP has said, adding that there will “never” be a vaccine against CO2.

Germany had barely started its coronavirus vaccination campaign when a Social Democratic MP, Karl Lauterbach, warned that his compatriots need to brace themselves for yet another challenge: global warming.

“We need measures to deal with climate change that are similar to the restrictions on personal freedom [imposed] to combat the pandemic,” the professor of health economics and epidemiology at the University of Cologne wrote in a guest piece for Die Welt newspaper. He added that he hoped climate change issues would play “a dominant role” during the upcoming election campaign ahead of the federal ballot scheduled for September 2021.

Siberia braces for close to record-breaking cold over New Year, with temperatures predicted to hit freezing -50 degrees

Russia’s Hydrometeorological Center has forecast that Western and Central Siberia will see temperatures as low as -50 celsius before the end of the year – around 20 degrees lower than the typical December cold.

Earlier this year, in the height of summer, the highest-ever temperature seen above the Artic Circle was recorded, with the small town of Verkhoyansk seeing the mercury reach as high as +38.

“Extremely cold weather in Siberia has not happened for a long time,” explained Roman Vilfand, the scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center, noting that the upcoming freeze will come close to the all-time record. “The temperature is 20 to 24 degrees below normal. For example, in the center of the Krasnoyarsk Region, it will reach -50 degrees.”

With some parts of the US 'feeling like the North Pole,' here's who might get a white Christmas this year

After a mild, soggy Christmas Eve across a large portion of the eastern U.S., much colder weather is in store for Christmas Day.

As the cold air rushes in later today and overnight, it will be accompanied by snow in a few areas, delivering a white Christmas morning for some folks.

Snow should be heaviest around the eastern Great Lakes and into portions of the Ohio Valley and the central Appalachians, where 4 to 8 inches is likely, the National Weather Service said.

Snow is even expected as far south as northern Georgia. Atlanta could see a few flurries on Christmas Day, but no accumulation is forecast.

Blizzard conditions hit Midwest as powerful winter storm threatens East Coast, U.S.

A powerful winter storm brought blizzard conditions to the U.S. Midwest on Wednesday, December 23, 2020, and is set to threaten much of the East Coast on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, December 24 and 25. Heavy rains and the existing melting snow from last week's storm pose a flooding risk to mid-Atlantic and New England, while severe thunderstorms and tornadoes are possible in the eastern Carolinas and southeast Virginia, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Blizzard warnings were in force across much of the Upper Midwest on Wednesday night, with winds over 105 km/h (65 mph) reported in parts of the Dakotas, impacting holiday travelers as road conditions were rough in some areas.

Winter storm warnings were also in place for Minnesota's Twin Cities, with near white-out conditions expected.

Modern Iceland’s Climate Is Colder With More Ice Than Any Other Time In The Last 8000 Years Except The 1800s

A wealth of new research in glacier and sea ice extent show modern Iceland is 2-4°C colder than all of the last 8000 years except for a slightly colder late 19th century. Even the 1700s were warmer with less ice than today in and around Iceland.

A new study (Geirsdóttir et al., 2020) now affirms peak Holocene warmth at least “?3–4 °C above modern in Iceland” prevailed throughout much of the last 8000 years. Data from tree growth, glacier-induced soil erosion, algae productivity, sea ice biomarker proxies (IP25), and other climate indices affirm these conclusions.

Harning et al., 2020 report an overall 7°C Holocene cooling trend In Iceland’s surrounding sea surface temperatures (SST).

“In terms of foraminifera-reconstructed SST there is an overall trend of cooling throughout the last 8 ka from ~10 °C to ~3 °C.”

One Little Problem With The "All-Electric" Auto Fleet: What Do We Do With All The "Waste" Gasoline?

Regardless of what happens with vaccines and Covid-19, debt and energy--inextricably bound as debt funds consumption-- will destabilize the global economy in a self-reinforcing feedback.

Back in the early days of the oil industry (1880s and 1890s), the product that the industry could sell at a profit was kerosene for lighting and heating. Since there was no automobile industry yet, gasoline was a waste product that was dumped into streams.

Why couldn't the refiners produce only kerosene? Why did they end up with "worthless" gasoline?

The answer is a barrel of oil produces a variety of products. While there is some "wiggle room" to produce more diesel and less gasoline, etc., it isn't possible to turn a barrel of oil into only one product.

Contrary to climate alarmism and media coverage, reef islands are GROWING despite rising sea, says new study

Against all odds, low-lying reef islands actually appear to be growing in some parts of the world, despite rising sea levels, increasing their footprint and defying doomsday predictions.

Geomorphologist Murray Ford from the University of Auckland in New Zealand led a team of researchers who examined Jeh Island, one of the 56 islands that make up the Ailinglaplap Atoll in the Marshall Islands, itself one of the most endangered nations on Earth.

Ford and his team pored over aerial and satellite imagery of the island from above and made the startling discovery that not only has Jeh increased in total land area by 13 percent since 1943, it may actually have once been four separate islands which have now morphed together due to net land-mass gains.

Flow of hot rocks rising from the Earth's core beneath central Greenland is melting the ice from below and contributing to sea-level rise, study finds

Melting of ice in central Greenland is being accelerated by the heat of molten rocks rising from the core–mantle boundary, adding to sea-level rise, a study has found.

Researchers from Japan mapped out the extent and branches of the so-called 'Greenland plume' — the rising flow of molten rock ascending beneath the island.

Geothermal activity is abundant in the North Atlantic region. Iceland and the Norwegian island of Jan Mayen have active volcanoes with their own mantle plumes.

Major winter storm buries parts of Alps under more than 3 m (10 feet) of snow, Europe

A major winter storm that started affecting parts of Europe on Friday, December 4, 2020, has dumped more than 3 m (9.8 feet) of snow in parts of Italy and Austria by the end of December 6 and more than 770 mm (30 inches) of rain in the town of Barcis in northern Italy. The snow is still falling, with up to 80 cm (2.6 feet) more expected in the Dolomites, Italy, and Carinthia and Osttirol, Austria on Tuesday, December 8. Before the event is over, some parts of the Alps might end up under more than 5 m (16.4 feet) of snow.

The general pattern over the North Atlantic and Europe has changed as we entered the much more dynamic weather lately, Marko Korosec of the Severe Weather Europe said.

"A very deep upper trough/low has emerged into southwestern Europe while a persistent upper-level ridge is placed across western Russia and eastern Europe," Korosec explained.

Historic hailstorm hits Beirut, Lebanon

A massive hailstorm accompanied by exceptionally heavy rain and drastic temperature drop hit Lebanon's capital Beirut on December 5, 2020, causing massive floods and traffic chaos. The last time Beirut witnessed a similar event was back in 1968.

The hailstorm lasted about 1 hour and was described by meteorologists as historic.

"This supercell affected only the coastal area around Beirut and its suburbs. A supercell effect is always local. Weather stations in Beirut recorded 50 mm [1.96 inches] of rainfall in a lapse of 25 minutes," Elias Saadeh, founder of Lebanon Weather Forecast, told Al Arabiya English.

"This quantity is considered enormous since it is equivalent to pouring 50 liters of water in each square meter [13 gallons per 10 feet2] in 25 minutes. Moreover, this supercell caused a drastic drop in temperature from 21 to 13.5 °C [69.8 - 55.4 °F] in a couple of minutes," Saadeh said.

Organized by Elected Officials to Protect America (EOPA), the letter explains that the signatories "believe it is imperative we take action on the climate crisis because it is a threat multiplier for water security, deadly disease, and environmental racism. It is time to enact a national Climate Emergency Plan that protects all our communities."

Winter storm brings heavy snow and power outages

Winter took a hard swing at New England on Saturday as a nor’easter brought rapid, wet snowfalls that dropped as much as a foot of snow in Central Massachusetts, several inches of rain on Cape Cod, and high winds that left thousands without power.

Residents woke up to steady rain Saturday, but falling temperatures throughout the day changed the rain to snow that fell at a rate of about 1 to 2 inches per hour in the afternoon for much of the state, forecasters said.

Climate change 'will end England's snowy winters in 20 years': Whiteouts could become a thing of the past as planet warms, Met Office says

Winter scenes of settled snow could become a thing of the past due to climate change, according to the Met Office.

An analysis suggests by the 2040s the South of England will no longer see freezing days. And by 2080 only very high ground and parts of northern Scotland could experience sub-zero daytime temperatures.

The Met Office warned sledging and snowball fights could be consigned to history without action to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.

Vatican Says Biden Presidency Can Play ‘Key Role’ in Paris Climate Deal

The Vatican suggested Thursday a Biden presidency might inject new life into the stagnant Paris Climate Accord after President Trump pulled the U.S. out of the deal in 2017.

The Vatican COVID-19 Commission announced Thursday that it is organizing a webinar next week in preparation for a December 12 global climate summit to be co-hosted by the United Nations and the UK to mark the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement.

In its preparatory document, the Vatican team lamented the lack of initiative and commitment around the Paris climate goals, something it said needs to gain renewed momentum ahead of the U.N. Climate Change Conference (COP 26) to be held in Glasgow in November 2021.

Lake effect snow continues to pile up in the snowbelt ahead of Tuesday's evening commute

Winter has arrived. Snow is everywhere. Moderate to heavy snow continues across much of the Cleveland metro area. The snow is wet and heavy this morning, weighing down trees, covering signs and causing slick conditions on the roads. Temperatures will stay steady near 32 degrees, but with winds gusting over 30mph, wind chills will be in the teens all day.

UN Climate Agency Slapped With Corruption Allegations 

The Financial Times recently acquired a draft report by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) of audit and investigations, outlining how "fraud and corruption" have been linked to the multibillion-dollar Global Environment Facility (GEF).

FT examined the draft report which described "financial misstatements" that were discovered across UNDP's portfolio of GEF-funded projects around the world.

"Issues identified by the audit could seriously compromise the achievement of the objectives of the audited entity," the report said.

GEF was set up in the early 1990s with the World Bank to combat climate change. Its main objectives have been to help fight environmental challenges such as deforestation, species preservation, and pollution control. In recent years, GEF has become an independent organization with more than $21 billion dispersed in 170 countries, including $7 billion in projects managed by UNDP.

The Ominous Sign Of Things To Come: Biden Places This Deal At Top Of 'First Move' Wishlist

Here we are in the middle of a once-in-a-half-century pandemic, with the economy crushed, millions of people jobless, and tension on the streets of our cities. And President-elect Joe Biden says that one of his leading priorities as president will be to reenter the Paris climate accord.

President Trump kept his "put America first" word and pulled the United States out of this Obama-era treaty. Biden wants us back in.

Why? Paris is an absolute failure, Many say so, National Geographic for example, a supporter of climate change action, recently ran the numbers and revealed in its recent headline: "Most countries aren't hitting 2030 climate goals." That's putting it mildly. Most haven't even got to half of their promised target for emissions reductions.

The Genocidal Roots of the Green New Deal: The Limits to Growth and the Unchaining of Prometheus

Prince Charles has just given us 18 months to save the world. Over the past years, the prince and his father (among other inbred aristocrats of Europe) have taken an incredible interest in the safety of the earth from the pollution emitting machines who greedily consume and reproduce without any consideration for Mother Gaia. In recent months this green transformation of the globe has taken the form of the “Green New Deal” promoted in the U.S. by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Bernie Sanders. A children’s campaign endorsed by pope Francis and led by Greta Thunberg has spread across Europe and America while a Billionaires Club under the guidance of Al Gore, and George Soros is funding a Sunrise Movement to fight global warming.

It’s Already Snowing in Hawai?i

According to the folks who work at the Canada-France-Hawai?i Telescope, situated atop Mauna Kea on Hawai?i Island, the summit has been getting dustings of snow for weeks. (Nearby Mauna Loa also got a light snowcap on Sunday.)

Cold temperatures combined with some moisture gave the state’s two tallest mountains a dusting of snow visible by the telescope's webcam.

While we enjoyed 82-degree weather in Honolulu on Sunday, it was colder on Mauna Kea (28 degrees) than in Aspen, Colorado or Casper, Wyoming.

These are images from the 3.6-meter optical/infrared telescope over the weekend.

Delingpole: Princess Nut Nut Elbows Bojo Towards the Great Reset

The sale of new petrol and diesel cars will be banned in Britain from 2030 as part of a Great Reset promoted by Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s current official girlfriend Carrie Symonds.

This is part of a ‘green revolution’ being pushed by the Conservatives: despite the fact that green issues are only of marginal issue to voters, they are of huge interest to unelected eco-activist and animal rights campaigner Symonds.

Climate 'Experts' Demand Tax-On-Meat To Fight Global Warming

The UK Health Alliance on Climate Change (UKHACC) urges the UK government to impose a climate tax on food producers by 2025 - unless private industry takes voluntary measures to limit their carbon emissions.

In the report published on Nov. 4, titled "All-Consuming: Building A Healthier Food System For People And Planet," UKHACC outlines that the climate crisis cannot be resolved without reducing food that causes high emissions, such as red meat and dairy products.

"In particular, red meat consumption will need to be cut by half if the food system is to stay within sustainable environmental limits," UKHACC wrote in the report.

Extreme blizzard conditions drop record amount of snow and ice across Alaska and Yukon, Canada

Blizzard-like conditions, record volumes of snow and ice started accumulating Sunday and Monday across Alaska and NW Canada, blocking roads, knocking down power for thousands and forcing school and businesses’ closures.

The extreme cold temperatures are due to a frigid Arctic air moving farther south than expected.

Climate change: US formally withdraws from Paris agreement

After a three-year delay, the US has become the first nation in the world to formally withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.

President Trump announced the move in June 2017, but UN regulations meant that his decision only takes effect today, the day after the US election.

The US could re-join it in future, should a president choose to do so.

UN seeks urgent climate action to PREVENT “greening” of Sahara Desert, proving climate change is a death cult

The Sahel region of the southern Sahara is only barely livable, being the home to the surviving descendants of what that land used to be. The prospect of more moisture and “greening” is good news for these folks, who barely scratch by doing what they can with the marginal land to make a living.

If the U.N.’s predictions are correct, Sahelians will once again have the opportunity to grow things in fertile soil while potentially building a whole new civilization in the process.

And somehow this is a bad thing to WMO Regional Strategic Office Director Filipe Lucio, who during a recent press conference warned that Africa “needs to take action” right away.

'Sleeping giant' Arctic methane deposits starting to release, scientists find

Scientists have found evidence that frozen methane deposits in the Arctic Ocean – known as the “sleeping giants of the carbon cycle” – have started to be released over a large area of the continental slope off the East Siberian coast, the Guardian can reveal.

High levels of the potent greenhouse gas have been detected down to a depth of 350 metres in the Laptev Sea near Russia, prompting concern among researchers that a new climate feedback loop may have been triggered that could accelerate the pace of global heating.

The slope sediments in the Arctic contain a huge quantity of frozen methane and other gases – known as hydrates. Methane has a warming effect 80 times stronger than carbon dioxide over 20 years. The United States Geological Survey has previously listed Arctic hydrate destabilisation as one of four most serious scenarios for abrupt climate change.

Arctic blast brings minus-29 degree cold to Montana as snow and ice plaster central U.S.

A blast of frigid Arctic air has descended over the Western United States, toppling records far and wide as readings plummet to some 40 degrees below average for this time of year. Temperatures throughout much of the Rockies dipped below zero to start the week, falling as low as minus-29.2 in Potomac, Mont., early Sunday — the coldest temperature ever observed this early in the season across the Lower 48.

Major early-season winter storm brings heavy snow and record cold temperatures to U.S.

Widespread heavy snow falling across the central Rockies and central Plains is forecast to shift further south and develop into another major winter storm for the southern High Plains Monday into Tuesday, October 26 into 27, according to the National Weather Service (NWS). The station in Potomac, Montana, recorded -33 °C (-29 °F) on Sunday morning, October 25 -- the lowest temperature at an official climate site in the U.S. this early in the season.

Early-season winter storm hits northern U.S., breaking scores of snowfall records

A winter storm hit parts of the northern U.S. this week, breaking scores of snowfall records in Montana, Iowa, and Minnesota, where more than 1 100 road accidents were reported due to heavy snow. A deepening upper-level trough and a surge of cold Canadian air now set the stage for yet another early-season winter storm and more rounds of snow through early next week, possibly as far south as Texas.

Montana was the hardest hit, with up to 35 cm (14 inches) of snow through Monday, October 19, setting a number of October snowfall records.

Season's first major snowfall breaks record in Minnesota, causes hundreds of crashes and spinouts

A winter storm shouldered its way into the record books Tuesday while dumping 6 to 8 inches of heavy snow across the Twin Cities, burying curbs, garden hoses and whatever was left of fall.

The precipitation tapered off Tuesday night after 7.9 inches of snow at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, shattering the previous record for Oct. 20 of 3 inches, set in 1916, and nearly besting the all-time snowiest October day in the Twin Cities.

As flurries turned to a full-on storm, National Weather Service meteorologist Brent Hewett had simple advice: “Have a shovel” at the ready.

Accumulations were deepest in the southern metro with heavy wet snow falling up to an inch an hour: Edina reported 6.6 inches; Burnsville, 6.8; Savage, 8.8; and Apple Valley, 8.5. The widespread storm swept across much of the state from Interstate 90 in southern Minnesota to Alexandria, Brainerd and Duluth in the north.

No Nobel For Greta... Thank Goodness

So, the Norwegian Nobel Committee has awarded the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize to the World Food Programme for its efforts to combat hunger and to prevent it being used as a weapon of war.

They did not give it to Greta Thunberg, one of the favorites.

This is quite right, too, since she did not deserve it.

Far from encouraging peace, she has spread discord and division. Far from making the world a happier, safer place, she has helped make people fearful and pessimistic. Along with Extinction Rebellion, she has peddled the notion that we all have to stop doing the things we enjoy, such as travelling and trading globally – to live narrower, more restricted lives that have less impact upon the planet.

California Is Blaming Its Crippled Economy On Climate Change

With mass exodus occurring from California and the state on the verge of going broke, Democrats aren't blaming their decades old misunderstanding of economics - but rather are using climate change as the scapegoat.

California is now turning to wildfires that have made their way through 4.1 million acres in the state to lay blame as to the state's worsening financial state. The fires have cost just $1.1 billion to battle over the last three years, a relatively small sum for such a large state, according to Bloomberg.

But, with the pandemic throwing a true wrench into the gears of the state's economy - and the state's residents leaving at an alarming clip - the state needs to blame its $54 billion hole in its budget on something.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the fires were caused by climate change, why are we not seeing such fires in Canada and Mexico?

Greta Thunberg mocks US Supreme Court nominee as eco-activists paint judge's refusal to OPINE on climate change as DISQUALIFYING

Child enviro-prodigy Greta Thunberg is ripping US Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett for declining to give her opinions about the cause of climate change, likening the judge’s restraint to lacking a view on gravity.

“To be fair, I don't have any views on climate change, either,” Thunberg said on Thursday on Twitter, mocking Barrett's answers in her Senate confirmation hearing. “Just like I don't have any views on gravity, the fact that the earth is round, photosynthesis nor evolution. But understanding and knowing their existence really makes life in the 21st century so much easier.”

Socialists are using 'hysteria over COVID as a weapon of economic destruction'

Sky News contributor Cory Bernardi says the panic surrounding the health pandemic is being used as a weapon by socialists wanting to bring about economic destruction to usher in the introduction of the Green New Deal.

“There is something unusual about the continuing pandemic panic,” Mr Bernardi said.

“Medical experts now acknowledge that lockdowns don't work, they say that treatment with Hydroxychloroquine and zinc does work and that government responses globally have led to a massive destruction of wealth, wellbeing and work.

“Now none of that makes any sense until you open your mind to consider if there is another agenda at work.”

Mr Bernardi said behind the COVID-19 pandemic hysteria was an agenda to bring about social and economic change.

Delingpole: Study Confirms Donald Trump Is Right – ‘Clean’ Energy Is the Worst

Renewable energy is cripplingly expensive, hopelessly unreliable, massacres wildlife, destroys landscapes, destabilises the grid, harms indigenous peoples, and causes climate change. But apart from that it’s great, says a meticulous review published in the scientific journal Energies by a team of Irish and U.S.-based researchers.

Actually, the part about renewable energy being ‘great’ is a joke but the rest is true. The scholarly review – Energy and Climate Policy – An Evaluation of Climate Change Expenditure 2011-2018 – is probably the most thorough meta-analysis published on the so-called ‘clean energy’ sector. Its conclusion, though neutrally expressed, could scarcely be more damning:

…The reader may wonder whether the current proposed “zero-carbon” energy transition policies based predominantly on wind- and solar-generated electricity are truly the panacea that promoters of these technologies indicate.

Kamala Harris Wants To Punish ‘Climate Deniers’

It’s bad enough that as a California prosecutor and attorney general, Sen. Kamala Harris allegedly hid evidence that exonerated people wrongly accused or opposed their efforts to clear their names.

But she’s also a massive supporter of the “climate change” hoax and has signed onto Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s country-ending “Green New Deal” that would cost tens of trillions of dollars, devastate our economy, and put half the country in poverty.

‘The Great Reset’: World leaders to harness COVID and pursue 'sinister' climate agenda

Sky News host Rowan Dean says the next World Economic Forum in Davos has morphed from a “jet-setter climate gabfest” into a sinister “anti-democratic enterprise designed to destroy your job, steal your prosperity and rob your kids of a future”.

“It's a hardcore leftist eco-horror show replete with quasi fascism,” he said.

Mr Dean highlighted what he described as a “disturbing trend among many of the world's left-wing elites to increasingly conflate COVID-19 with climate change.

“Many are going so far as to suggest that all the measures applied to the coronavirus, the lockdowns, the destruction of businesses, the suppression of dissent, curfews, strong-arm police tactics, should become the ‘new normal’ for dealing with climate change."

CO2 and Temperature

Global warming/cooling cycle happened over and over before human. Glacial maximum was 23k years ago(kya) and warming. China/Taiwan/Japan was connected. By 15kyp sea started to rise and near sea level began to submerge and people/pottery spread to world. Sea level already rose 120m/400feet by around 6kya and compare to this it is almost flat for 6ky after.In last 4500 things like extreme high or low temperature caused many civilization failure.

Oregon State University professor blames white CHRISTIANS for West Coast wildfires

An Oregon State University (OSU) professor is blaming White Christians for the massive fires sweeping through Washington, Oregon and California.

In an essay published by Baptist News Global on Sept. 11, Susan Shaw, a professor working for the Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies Program at OSU’s College of Liberal Arts, said that White Christians who deny climate change are a contributing factor to the wildfires.

“The West is burning while most White Christians turn away from the root causes of the devastation,” Shaw wrote.

Shaw’s essay asserts that climate change is undeniably the reason why the wildfires have grown in intensity. However, she also argues that the fact that so many White Christians do not believe in climate science is also a contributing factor. To make her case, she presents statistics that she believes proves that White Christians do not care about the environment.

Delingpole: NATO’s New Mission – Saving the World from ‘Climate Change’

NATO has a new mission. Defending the West from the Russians is so last century: now it wants to save the world from ‘Climate Change.’

According to an op-ed, written by NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg:

Climate change is making the world more dangerous. NATO’s task is to preserve peace and keep us safe. So to fulfil our main responsibility, NATO must help to curb climate change for our security today and for the security of future generations.

There are lot of heroic assumptions in that paragraph. Perhaps it was written in the hope that Joe Biden will be America’s next President. Certainly, there’s no chance that President Trump would be swayed by such a flimsy argument nor approve of such mission creep. As far as Trump is concerned, NATO is a military defensive alliance, not another tentacle of the polar-bear-hugging, virtue-signalling green blob.

New Madrid Seismic Zone earthquake swarm raises concern

Missouri-based YouTuber Dutchsinse, a.k.a. Michael Yuri Janitch, issued an earthquake warning for the New Madrid Seismic Zone earlier this week only to be right as a swarm of earthquakes was detected on Wednesday resolidifying fears of a bigger one.

“A new earthquake swarm has broken out down here on the New Madrid Seismic Zone,” Janitch said in a video posted on YouTube Wednesday. “…right on the edge of the New Madrid Seismic Zone right where the bend goes up to the north into the foothills of Missouri.”

The swarm of quakes hit near the town of Success, Arkansas, and ranged from 2.0 to 2.6 in magnitude.

Woke wind power is NOT a viable energy policy Boris says SIR BERNARD INGHAM

WE now have conclusive proof that Boris Johnson is just a bag of wind. His plan to have our homes entirely powered by the four winds by 2030 shows that, like the Bourbons, he has learned nothing and forgotten nothing.

Mind you, he is no worse than those responsible for energy policy for the last 30 years. We have not had an energy policy worthy of the name for decades. If we persevere with this loose talk about relying on unreliable renewable sources of energy then sooner or later the lights will go out. Instead of parading his green virtue for all to see with his £50bn plan – no doubt prompted by his technologically obsessed adviser, Dominic Cummings – he should be told what constitutes a viable energy policy.

As RedState’s very own Sister Toldjah reported earlier today, the doubts President Trump recently expressed about the wisdom of Dr. Fauci’s advice on COVID-19 have elicited a chorus of smug accusation from the usual suspects that he’s “ignoring the experts.”

Sister Toldjah pointed out that it’s hard to know what their complaint even means given how often Fauci and other media-anointed authorities have done total 180s.

But, even putting aside how their advice seems to change with the political winds, the idea that there’s some scientific consensus in favor of the extreme measures inflicted on us in response to COVID-19 couldn’t be further from the truth.
