Are Environmentalists Using Native Americans, and Does It Matter?

On the environmental side, the motives are actually mixed. On the surface, the objections to the pipelines have to do with safety and pollution. Really, though, much of the campaign is about climate change. One leading campaign supporting the anti-DAPL protests, for example, is called #keepitintheground (the “it” being fossil fuels in general) and one of its leading voices is climate activist Bill McKibben. (DiCaprio, too, has been outspoken on fighting climate change.)
Anti-DAPL activists say they don’t want the DAPL built here. But in reality, they don’t want it built anywhere. Their real goals are combating fossil fuel development, moving America toward renewables, and mitigating global climate change. (At present, oil, gas, and coal comprise 81 percent of American energy consumption. Renewables comprise 5 percent.)
And that’s why they love to hate pipelines.

Protecting law and order is everyone’s business

If you have been following the Dakota Access pipeline protest and thinking “poor Morton County,” think again.

This fiasco is very much our problem here in Ward County. We pay state taxes too. And our law enforcement officers and National Guard members get sent to Cannon Ball to help keep the peace like residents of any other town in North Dakota. We are all helping to cover the expenses created by a bunch of out-of-state, professional hoodlums who hide behind masks and throw rocks at officers sworn to uphold the law. We are in no way removed from this tragedy that is escalating daily.

The ‘Cult’ of Climate Change (née Global Warming)

Global warming has become a religion.

This is the opinion of Nobel Prize Winning Physicist Dr. Ivar Giaever , Prof. Richard Lindzen, and many others. Climate change alarmism has a surprising number of attributes of a medieval or even ancient religion. Nevertheless, real religions have some pre-requisites, like a tradition spanning at least few generations. So the proper name for climate alarmism is a cult. And these are the telltale attributes:

Winter really IS coming: 'Siberian snow theory' predicts an early and brutal cold season for the US

The United States could be in for a long, cold winter as snow cover in Siberia reaches its highest point for this time of year in decades, the father of the ‘Siberian Snow Theory’ has warned.

Snow cover in Siberia is sometimes used to predict winter weather in the US, and MIT climatologist Judah Cohen claims this year’s conditions are a ‘textbook situation,’ Bloomberg reports.

It’s thought that more snow in northern Eurasia signals the frigid temperatures set to hit the regions below.

And while the cold blast could strike anywhere among North America, Asia, or Europe, the expert warns the US may get hit harder than forecasters are expecting.

Antarctic Sea Ice Has Not Shrunk In 100 Years

Antarctic sea ice had barely changed from where it was 100 years ago, scientists have discovered, after pouring over the logbooks of great polar explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton. Experts were concerned that ice at the South Pole had declined significantly since the 1950s, which they feared was driven by man-made climate change. But new analysis suggests that conditions are now virtually identical to when the Terra Nova and Endurance sailed to the continent in the early 1900s, indicating that declines are part of a natural cycle and not the result of global warming.

Tokyo has seen snowfall in November for the first time in the last 54 years on Thursday. Snowfalls in Tokyo are far from regular. Last year the first snowfall occurred at the start of January. At the start of the week, the weather in the Japanese capital was warm, with temperatures of up to 18 degrees Celsius. However, temperature dropped to 4 degrees Celsius in just one day, which is also a rare occasion for Tokyo.

Save the Planet from Climate Change: Tax Meat by 40%

There’s a brand new way to save the planet, and a group of professors from Oxford University wants to force the issue by assessing enormous taxes on foods said to have higher “climate impact.”

To make a long story short, they want to force everyone that doesn’t have a high income to become vegan by taxing the living daylights out of animal products. If you think your grocery bill is out of control now, just you wait if these scientists get their way.

By taxing items like beef by 40%, dairy products and poultry by 20%, and certain vegetable oils, the planet will be saved.

The REAL FAKE NEWS exposed: '97% of scientists agree on climate change' is an engineered hoax... here's what the media never told you

In the current ridiculous battle over "real news" vs. "fake news," the establishment media liars all claim that climate change is the perfect example of how "fake news" keeps interfering with their truthful facts. They repeatedly claim that 97% of scientists agree on man-made climate change, and therefore anyone who disagrees is obviously shoveling "fake" news.

But wait a second. Where does that "97%" claim really come from? They sure repeat it a lot. Is it a legitimate representation of the science?

Author Mark Steyn dug into that question in the search for a more authoritative answer. What he uncovered was so much fraud and deception by climate change propagandists that he compiled an entire book on the matter entitled A Disgrace to the Profession. Here's an excerpt that explains the shocking intellectual fraud behind the "97% of scientists" claim:

Those were some of the thoughts running through Fetterman's head as the skies grew dark, snow fell and traffic backed up more than six miles on I-81 North from Tully to LaFayette.

Fetterman said he never figured out why I-81 shut down, but Onondaga County 911 reported I-81 North closed at the Tully exit because so many cars, tractor-trailers and other vehicles couldn't get up the hills in that area.

Scientists Are Predicting Polar Vortex To Bring Big Freeze And Coldest Winter For Five Years :”People Should Be Prepared For a Real Flagstaff Winter”

Polar vortex enters Northern U.S.

The stratospheric polar vortex is a large-scale region of air that is contained by a strong west-to-east jet stream that circles the polar region. This jet stream is usually referred to as the polar night jet. The polar vortex extends from the tropopause (the dividing line between the stratosphere and troposphere) through the stratosphere and into the mesosphere (above 50 km). Low values of ozone and cold temperatures are associated with the air inside the vortex.

BEX ALERT - The North Pole is an insane 36 degrees warmer than normal as winter descends

Political people in the United States are watching the chaos in Washington in the moment. But some people in the science community are watching the chaos somewhere else - the Arctic.

It's polar night there now - the sun isn't rising in much of the Arctic. That's when the Arctic is supposed to get super-cold, when the sea ice that covers the vast Arctic Ocean is supposed to grow and thicken.

But in fall 2016 - which has been a zany year for the region, with multiple records set for low levels of monthly sea ice - something is totally off. The Arctic is superhot, even as a vast area of cold polar air has been displaced over Siberia.

Mid-spring freeze hits New Zealand

A mid-spring freeze has hit New Zealand with sub-zero temperatures, frost and snow, hitting parts of the country this morning.

Queenstown has slipped to below freezing, with an extreme low of -0.9degrees overnight. Frosts in the area and other parts of inland South Island has made for some icy conditions on the roads.

A pilot, fighting frost near Queenstown, was seriously injured when his chopper crashed at 4.30am, just outside of Wanaka. He managed to climb out of the wreck, and was taken to a local hospital.

This morning's high was a paltry 12.4 degrees at the other end of the country - Kaitaia.

Earth faces another ICE AGE within 15 YEARS as Russian scientists discover Sun 'cooling'

THE Earth is heading towards another ice age as solar magnetic activity is set to drop by up to 60 per cent in the next 15 years.

Experts say that solar activity as low as it currently is has not been seen since the mini-ice age that took place between 1645 and 1715 – a period known as the Maunder Munimum where the entire Thames froze over.

A new model has allowed experts to predict solar activity with more accuracy than ever before and it suggests that magnetic activity will fall by 60 per cent between 2030 and 2040.

EPIC IDIOCY: NBC News journo Ron Allen announces that Obama's climate change deal will stop hurricanes forever... even the hurricanes on Saturn?

Delusional democrats are doing everything in their power right now to link Hurricane Matthew to global warming, and the best example of the nonsense we're witnessing on all this is found in a broadcast segment featuring NBC's Ron Allen, a democrat operative who pretends to be a journalist.

While covering Obama's comments on the Paris climate change agreement, Allen stated that Obama's efforts were designed to stop hurricanes, as if somehow paying carbon taxes to Al Gore will halt the spinning of the Earth and the sun's warming of the oceans -- those are the two primary forces resulting in hurricanes, which exist on EVERY planet in the cosmos that has an atmosphere, a sun and some rotational momentum.

UN makes power play against Trump

International governments have made a power play against Donald Trump by ratifying an international climate deal earlier than expected, effectively preventing him from “canceling” the deal as he has promised to do.

The European Union’s Tuesday decision to join the Paris climate deal will push the deal over the threshold for ratification; it will formally take effect in 30 days.

That means Trump, should he be elected president in November, could not “cancel” or renegotiate the terms of the agreement.

Earth heading for ICE AGE as sun goes blank

Analysis of the sun has revealed that there has been a sharp decrease in the amount of sunspots this year.

Sunspots release solar flares and vast amounts of magnetic energy.

For the fourth time this year, the sun has gone blank, which has led some experts to believe that a new Ice Age is on the horizon and could hit us by 2019.

According to, the occurrence of a spotless sun is going to become more regular.

Another Statewide Blackout: South Australia’s Wind Power Disaster Continues

Thanks to its ludicrous attempt to run on sunshine and breezes, South Australia has just experienced yet another Statewide blackout. SA’s vapid Premier, Jay Weatherill and what passes for media in this Country ran straight to the periphery, blaming everything except the bleeding obvious (see this piece of infantile doodling from wind cult central – the ABC).

STT’s SA operatives tell us the blackout occurred during a blustery spring storm (heavy rain, lightning and surging, gusty wind). The power supply went down across the entire State at precisely the same time (a little after 3:30pm). It took more than 5 hours to restore power to a few parts of the State, and many regions remained powerless for much longer than that.

Two local wind farm projects now on hold

At least two proposed multi-turbine wind farms in Grey-Bruce are now on hold due to the province’s decision this week to suspend signing new contracts for large-scale renewable energy projects.

RES Canada had planned to submit a bid under the now-halted Large Renewable Procurement II process for a development with about 63 turbines near Dundalk.

The company, which is in the midst of holding community engagement sessions on the project, has secured agreements for about 12,000 acres of land in Southgate as well as property in Wellington County for the proposed Grand Highlands Wind Project.

“We can’t advance the project right now because obviously the LRP II has been suspended for the time being,” development manager Rebecca Crump said Thursday.

James Lovelock, Godfather of Green: Climate Change Religion is Bunk

Climate alarmism, he says, is not “remotely scientific”; one volcano could make more difference to global warming than humans ever could; the computer models are “unreliable”; greens have behaved “deplorably”; and anyone who tries to “predict more than five to ten years is a bit of an idiot.”

Though this is not the first time Lovelock has rowed back on his earlier climate catastrophism – in 2012 he was already admitting “I made a mistake” – it’s his most emphatic rejection yet of the green litany.

It's fall, think snow

"It's snowing in them 'thar hills," my friend teased. Hiking this time of year, especially above tree line, requires visitors to dress in layers and carry along Yaktrax in the event of finding yourself on a snowy and slippery trail. Like me, my friend is an all-season hiker and knows a thing or two about trekking in Colorado's high country.

Good Storm

It was snowing heavily as I left the ski area yesterday afternoon. I arrived to a beautiful snowy scene this morning. In the base area there is probably 3-4" of new snow. I suspect more up on the hill. Our temperatures just got down into the snowmaking realm this morning. We didn't quite pull the trigger on making snow expecting the window of opportunity was just a little too small. A good sign none the less. Moisture on the hill and temperatures starting to be consistently colder ---- I like it.

The Air Was So Acidic It Would Pit Windsheilds & Disintegrate Women's Pantyhose

Gary Pittman worked for Occidental Chemical Corporation for 21 years in the phosphate mining industry, working his way up to the position of Mining Supervisor. Using his expertise and years of experience Gary gives the listener a detailed yet easy to understand lesson concerning some of the health dangers faced by people who work in the phosphate mining industry, by the people who live near one of these operations, and the pollution spewed forth into the biosphere we all call home. In this case he discusses how acidic the air around a phosphoric acid plant is (which are onsite at these mining operations), and what it did to windshield glass and female workers pantyhose who were exposed to it.

Climate Alarmist Professors: Vote Hillary or the Planet Will Fry!

Hundreds of members of the US National Academy of Sciences have signed an open letter in support of Hillary because global warming.

The signatories – 375 in all – don’t actually mention Donald Trump by name. But it’s pretty clear that that’s whom they’re getting at when they deliver their hectoring screed about certain candidates during the Presidential primary campaign who claimed “that the Earth is not warming, or that warming is due to purely natural causes outside of human control.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me preface this by saying I come from a science background myself, but all too often science gets hijacked and distorted for political or economic gain, or simply makes goofs which are perpetuated by arrogance!

Why should we not just blindly trust science?

Alchemy, for one.

Phlogiston Chemistry, for another.

Prior to the 14th Century Astronomers thought the Earth was the center of the universe, because, well, that's what the church wanted, and spent hundreds of years of scientific research on the theory of Epicycles, trying to reconcile the Earth centered model with the observed motions of the planets. Epicycles hold the record for longest running scientific goof in history!

17th Century doctors thought rubbing chicken dung into your scalp would cure baldness! They also thought leeches sucked disease out of patients.

18th Century Geologists thought the Earth was 6000 years old, because, well, that's what the church wanted!

Prior to the 1950s, scientists thought proteins carried our heredity.

Until the 19th Century, doctors thought infection was caused by bad air, from which we get the term "Malaria."

Scientists claimed cigarettes were good for you up until the 1950s. They even had a machine to pump tobacco smoke into your anus; the origin of the phrase "blowing smoke up your a**!"

In 1948, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine went to the discovery of DDT. A few years later it had almost collapsed the food chain.

In 1949, the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine went to the discovery of the "therapeutic value" of lobotomy! Patients had their brains butchered by having what was essentially an ice pick shoved up their nose into their brains!

Until 2005, doctors thought ulcers were caused by stress.

National Geographic ran an article in 2015 whining why people don't believe science. But science is not about belief but about facts! And National Geographic should not be questioning why people do not trust science after its own 1999 "Piltdown Chicken" scandal!

Science is not perfect. Science does make mistakes. The beauty of science is supposed to be that they admit it, not use the label of "science" like a modern religious icon to push agendas onto people! Anyone who says the "Science is settled" is not being scientific, they are being propagandistic!

Dr. William Thompson blew the whistle that CDC faked their report that claimed no link between the MMR vaccine and autism. Dr. Farid Fata was sentenced to 45 years in federal prison for telling perfectly healthy patients they had cancer in order to sell them radiation and chemotherapy. The lesson to be learned is that just because someone has a "Dr." before their name does not automatically make them a more honest person. Indeed, the very process of obtaining a PhD amounts to convincing the academics that you believe just what they believe about whatever field of study you may be in!

And, oh yes, the Old Farmer's Almanac has turned out to be right once again; it is already snowing across the northern hemisphere ... in September. That must be quite a shock to Al Gore's minion, who back in 2000 assured us all that snowfalls are a thing of the past (UK Independent, March 20, 2000)
