Nearly 60 Vehicles Involved in Pile-Up Crashes on Kennedy Expressway, Officials Say

Nearly 60 vehicles were involved in pile-up crashes on the Kennedy Expressway Wednesday morning, officials said.

The Chicago Fire Department tweeted at around 5:45 a.m. that emergency services were responding to the expressway near North Avenue for the crashes.

Low traction on the expressway due to overnight snow and icy conditions caused multiple collisions, authorities said.

People digging out after April snow storm blankets parts of Northwoods

A spring storm blanketed parts of the Northwoods with snow.

In Marinette County, some people spent Monday morning digging out and cleaning up.

On a side street in the Village of Wausaukee, Steve Stumbris says nearly nine inches of snow fell Sunday night into Monday morning.

"It wasn't too bad last night, even when I went to bed. But I got up in the middle of the night and I looked out the upstairs window, and you couldn't hardly see the home next door. It was snowing so hard," said Steve Stumbris, Wausaukee.

A few blocks away, Bart Stafford is working to clear his driveway.

Delingpole: Coronavirus Is Killing the European Union’s Carbon Trading Market.

The Covid-19 pandemic has turned Europe’s carbon price upside down, with prices dropping by 40% since early March when they were still trading at about €24 ($26) per metric ton, analyst IHS Markit said.

The current trading levels of between €16-18 per metric ton are roughly two thirds of the level of the high of 2019 of €29 per metric ton.

“This is a perfect storm for Europe’s carbon market, and it may well lead to some challenging questions about its role in Europe’s decarbonisation strategy once the COVID-19 crisis has passed,” said IHS Markit director Coralie Laurencin.

World's oceans are capturing twice as much carbon as previously thought thanks to microscopic carbon-loving plankton that float down to the ocean depths, study claims

US scientists say that the level of carbon that is distributed to the ocean floor depends on how much sunlight a microscopic type of plankton gets.

This phytoplankton, which consumes carbon dioxide and releases oxygen just like plants, is present in the ocean’s sun-lit surface area – known as the 'euphotic zone'.

Phytoplankton then enters the food chain or falls as organic dead matter, indirectly distributing carbon to the ocean depths.

But variations in the depth at which the euphotic zone ends means differences in how much carbon is being distributed to the bottom.

By measuring the actual depth of the euphotic zone – which is usually said to span from the very surface to 650 feet (200 metres) down – scientists say global carbon estimates may be inaccurate.

Weatherwatch: Tokyo experiences rare late-March snowfall

Tokyo experienced a rare late-March snowfall last Sunday as a deepening area of low pressure off the coast brought snow to the centre of the Japanese capital. The official observation of 1cm marked the first time in 32 years that central Tokyo witnessed such a snow accumulation. The snowfall was a significant contrast to the newly-blossoming cherry trees, with the cherry blossom season officially starting in Tokyo on the 14 March, the earliest on record.

Vatican Praises UK Jesuits’ Divestment of Fossil Fuel Stocks

The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano has held up British Jesuits as an example of an effective commitment to combating climate change, which it calls “the most urgent challenge” we face.

As Breitbart News reported, in late February the UK Jesuit order announced they were dumping all fossil fuel stocks from their half-billion-dollar investment portfolio because of the fuel companies’ complicity in the “climate crisis.”

“Our trustees took the decision to completely divest from oil, gas and coal-producing companies because they felt these companies were not making enough progress towards better solutions,” declared Jesuit Brother Stephen Power, the order’s British Province Treasurer.

‘I don’t want to shame Greta Thunberg, but…’: Activist dubbed ‘anti-Greta’ by media RIPS INTO ‘climate alarmism’

The media have invented the ‘anti-Greta’ label to portray her as an “evil Right antichrist,” but it only attracted more people to her ideas, Naomi Seibt, who says the human effect on climate change is vastly exaggerated, told RT.

Seibt calls herself a “climate realist” and bluntly rejects the term “climate change denier,” which is another label, used to describe her and her supporters by the opposing side. It implies that “we’re just selfish and ignorant,” but it’s not the case, she pointed out.

“We’re about being scientific sceptics and looking into more sensible ways to improve the environment to be more in line with our values when it comes to interacting with nature,” the 19-year-old said.

Children are having NIGHTMARES about climate change with one in five saying they are losing sleep over the environmental crisis, survey reveals

A new survey reveals one in five children are having bad dreams about the environmental changes, with 17 percent reporting their concerns are affecting their sleeping and eating habits.

The poll also shows 80 percent say the problem was important to them and nearly half do not trust adults to tackle the long-term problems.

The study, conducted by BBC Newsround in collaboration with Savanta-ComRes, surveyed 2,000 children in the UK from the ages of eight to 16 in a bid to see just how the younger generation feels about the changes to our planet.

Climate Change is Not Decimating Bees

Several media outlets -- namely National Public Radio -- are touting a tall tale that climate change is decimating bee populations throughout North America. The (false) alarm is based on a February 7 study published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The study, however, is deeply flawed and does not change the very low likelihood of climate change seriously impacting bee populations.

Delingpole: Now Boris’s Green Gestapo Are Coming for Your Coal Fires

Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s latest green assault on property rights and freedom is to ban coal fires.

From February next year, bags of traditional house coal will be banned from sale, with deliveries of loose coal phased out by 2023. There will also be restrictions on the kind of wood you are allowed to burn, newly cut (green) wood to be made illegal.

Together with a mooted ban on gas-fired boilers and gas-fired cookers — both extremely popular in the country — the new, green-obsessed administration appears to be signalling that an Englishman’s home is no longer his castle and that his hearth now belongs to the government.

UNESCO: Climate Denial To Be Criminalized And Prosecuted

Technocracy News & Trend’s Editor’s Note:

The Technocrat tango is shifting into high gear to force the world to dump Capitalism and Free Enterprise and adopt Sustainable Development in its place. Global warming deniers would face penalties comparable to war crimes.When climate alarmist Al Gore said in 2015 that “deniers deserve to be punished” everybody chuckled. Well, chuckle no more. Under this proposal, President Trump could be prosecuted for withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord; leaders of “Conservative think-tanks” and other activist organizations that question climate science would be included; widely-read journalists who influence the public to question phony climate science would be individually prosecuted – that would ostensibly include Technocracy News & Trends and its publisher, Patrick Wood...

"Having stumbled across an interview with Greta Thunberg's captain of the sailing vessel that brought her across to New York, I was very surprised at what he said. He was flying back to Europe from New York and 3 others were flying from Europe to New York to sail the vessel back. So that is four flights to save her one flight. Obviously a PR stunt. But it got me curious as to who the heck was paying for these flights? This is a quick synopsis of what I found out.

Delingpole: Britain’s Floods Have Nothing to Do With Climate Change

Boris Johnson’s Greenest Government Evah has come up with a brilliant new excuse to duck its responsibilities for all the floods now swamping parts of Britain: climate change ate our homework.

From Hereford to Shrewsbury and South Wales to North Yorkshire, swathes of Britain are underwater thanks to flooding in the aftermath of Storm Dennis, which so far has claimed five lives. There are currently more than 400 flood warnings around Britain, with more heavy rain forecast to come.

But the government has effectively absolved itself of responsibility by pinning the blame on ‘climate change.’

Electric Shock: China Power Demand Drops as Coronavirus Shutters Plants

China’s industrial power demand in 2020 may decline by as much as 73 billion kilowatt hours (kWh), according to IHS Markit, as the outbreak of the coronavirus has curtailed factory output and prevented some workers from returning to their jobs.

The cut represents about 1.5 percent of industrial power consumption in China. But, as the country is the world’s biggest electricity consumer, the loss is equal to the power used in the whole of Chile and it illustrates the scope of the disruption caused by the outbreak.

The reduction is the energy equivalent of about 30 million tonnes of thermal coal or about 9 million tonnes of liquefied natural gas (LNG), IHS said.

Save the planet & die alone: Swedish prof says we should ditch pet cats & dogs, for climate’s sake

With human populations already on the decline in the West, climate-conscious academics have now taken aim at carnivorous pets. But even if ditching canine and feline companionship helps save the planet, is the loneliness worth it?

A Swedish agricultural studies professor has joined the growing chorus of environmentally-conscious academics scolding pet owners about their four-legged friends' carbon pawprints. Cats and dogs eat meat, which produces significant emissions, and therefore should be replaced with herbivorous pets when possible, Sigrid Agenäs recently told Swedish outlet Expressen.

Forget about balance? BBC now a climate activist saying it’s a ‘privilege’ to have ‘global icon’ Greta Thunberg front new series

With the turmoil surrounding the BBC right now, warring talent arguing over their salaries, the hunt for a new Director General and the bound-to-get-uglier row over the tv licence fee, excitedly announcing a new climate change documentary all about Swedish teen Greta Thunberg shows a palpable lack of feel for the public mood.

But she is exactly the sort of poster child the BBC is looking for, as it turns to climate activism in a bid to boost its audience figures.

The national broadcaster is very much a self-appointed custodian of all things climate. Look at their What is Climate Change website and you will see plenty of broad facts about changes in the environment, but nothing to suggest that environmental change is largely part of the wondrous cycle of nature and not entirely the fault of man. That is where the BBC case lies.

Professor Calls for People to Stop Having Babies – Letting Human Race Go Extinct to Fight Climate Change

A British professor is speaking out this week to demand that people stop having babies and let the human race go extinct to fight climate change.

Patricia MacCormack is a continental philosophy professor at Anglia Ruskin University in the United Kingdom, and she is a researcher of “feminism, queer theory, posthuman theory, horror film, body modification, animal rights/abolitionism, cinesexuality, and ethics.”

In her book “The Ahuman Manifesto,” MacCormack claims that humans don’t see the damage they’ve done to each other and the other species on Earth, according to The Blaze.

'Mini Ice Age' warnings for next 30 years with -50C temperatures in coldest areas

Cold snaps so severe they could threaten food shortages and plummeting temperatures are a very real possibility over the next 30 years, an expert claims.

With the Sun entering a natural "hibernation period" or solar minimum in which it projects less heat at the Earth there could be frostier weather and heavy snow storms.

Scientist Valentina Zharkova, of Northumbria University, said average temperatures could drop by 1C in 2020 and last up to a year - while resulting in wet and cold summers.

And the minimum was the cause for Canada's recent -50C, she claims.

While normal solar minimums are a natural occurrence in the sun's life cycle every 11 years or so, next year's could be especially chilly as it marks the beginning of a much bigger drop in energy, reports the Sun Online.

    Hundreds arrested for deliberately starting catastrophic Australian bushfires

    Directed energy weapons? I think not!

    CANBERRA, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) -- Hundreds of Australians have been arrested for allegedly deliberately lighting Australian bushfires in only a matter of months.

    Australia is currently enduring one of the worst bushfire crises in the nation's history, with at least 25 people having been killed since September.

    The Australian reported on Tuesday that 183 people have been arrested for lighting bushfires in New South Wales (NSW), Queensland, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania.

    Soros-linked political pressure group Avaaz joins forces with MSM to purge climate skeptics from YouTube

    Independent mainstream media outlets are engaging in a politically-motivated campaign to force YouTube to demonetize and hide any video that denies climate change.

    Published on Avaaz’s website, the left-leaning non-profit group released a report on January 16 that claims YouTube is profiting by broadcasting misinformation to millions of people by giving climate denial videos too much prominence. The report is an undisguised intimidation campaign, as not only does it list major advertizers who are running ads on videos that question the legitimacy of the threat climate change poses for humanity, but it explicitly calls for them to put pressure on the platform as a means of putting an end to the so-called disinformation.

    NZ First MP and Minister Shane Jones takes aim at 'eco-bible-bashing' climate-change activists

    Outspoken NZ First MP and Minister Shane Jones has launched a scathing attack on climate-change activists who want Kiwis to eat less meat, blasting their form of "eco bible bashing".

    He has compared them to "medieval torture chamber workers" and has vowed to rally against this sort of "absolutism" as Election 2020 draws closer.

    His comments come after the Government, of which he is a Minister, announced school children would be taught about climate change in class.

    Education Minister Chris Hipkins said kids will be taught the role that science plays in understanding climate change, as well as how it impacts the planet both globally and locally.

    They would also be taught how to contribute to reducing and adapting to its impact on everyday life.

    Climate Change Minister, Green MP James Shaw, said one of the ways kids could help reduce emissions was to eat less meat.

    Based on historic solar cycles, solar activity will dwindle in 2020 to the lowest level in over 200 years. The low in the sun’s 11-year cycle is likely to cause odd weather patterns and may cause severe cooling, especially in Europe and North America. Based on 20 years of observation and data, scientists are predicting that the sun will be nearly seven percent cooler and dimmer by 2050 causing a ‘mini ice age’.

    7-year-old children left psychologically terrorized after hearing Greta Thunberg speech… “I don’t want to die!”

    According to the National Post, the schoolchildren were forced to watch a video of a “carbon clock.” The clock counted down from eight years, suggesting the children have less than a decade to live. The video warned that eight years is “the estimated amount of time it will take to emit enough carbon to warm the world by 1.5 degrees Celsius” – setting off a catastrophic string of events that will cause mass extinction of humans.

    Psychologists warn that children are high impressionable at this age. “Children this young are highly impressionable concrete thinkers who interpret what they hear very literally,” says Pediatrician Dr. Michelle Cretella. “Between the ages of 7 and 11, children gradually become able to understand specific examples of cause and effect, but they still struggle with abstract ideas and putting issues in context.”

    These Birds of Prey Are Deliberately Setting Forests on Fire

    A new study incorporating traditional Indigenous Australian ecological knowledge describes the largely unknown behaviour of so-called 'firehawk raptors' – birds that intentionally spread fire by wielding burning sticks in their talons and beaks.

    ...

    According to the team, firehawk raptors congregate in hundreds along burning fire fronts, where they will fly into active fires to pick up smouldering sticks, transporting them up to a kilometre (0.6 miles) away to regions the flames have not yet scorched.

    "The imputed intent of raptors is to spread fire to unburned locations – for example, the far side of a watercourse, road, or artificial break created by firefighters – to flush out prey via flames or smoke," the researchers write.

    Flashback 2018: Prescribed burning debate rages as Australia finds there's no time to burn going into peak fire season

    There is a lot more to prescribed burning, also known as controlled burning, than just lighting the match as a changing climate and environment poses new challenges for fire authorities.

    Deputy chief fire officer with Forest Fire Management (FFA) Victoria, Darrin McKenzie, said autumn burning this year was particularly challenging and the state only managed to achieve about 30 per cent of prescribed burning programs.

    Flashback 2013: Controlled burns are better than the alternative

    Prescribed burning, or burning-off, is a crucial land management tool which stimulates germination and rejuvenates the landscape.

    Flashback 2009: Australian firestorms prompt call to return to Aboriginal bush control

    "The mismanagement of the south-eastern forests of Australia over the last 30 or 40 years by excluding prescribed burning and fuel management has lead to the highest fuel concentrations we have ever had in human occupation," said David Packham, a bush fire researcher at Monash University, Australia. "The state has never been as dangerous as what it is now and this has been quite obvious for some time."

    He said Australia's modern inhabitants needed to learn from the way the Aborigines had deliberately allowed some areas to burn in order to protect others. "There has been a total lack of willingness to instigate a proper fuel reduction management programme based on the skills and understanding of indigenous people who, after all for tens of thousands of years, were the stewards of our environment. We have thumbed our noses at what these people did and knew and we just can't keep on doing it."

    Fight fire with fire: controlled burning could have protected Australia

    ...a not-unrelated court report appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald. It told the story of 71-year-old John David Chia, who in 2014 paid contractors to cut down and remove 74 trees on and around his property.

    The judge in this case noted that Chia’s primary motivation for the tree removal was ‘his concern about the risk of fire at his property’, but found also the Sydney pensioner’s actions had caused ‘substantial harm’ to the environment. Chia ended up copping a $40,000 fine — more than $500 for each tree.

    Similar legal rulings have become frequent in Australia, as a kind of ecological religious fundamentalism has taken the place of common sense. In 2004, Liam Sheahan was charged $100,000 in fines and legal expenses after clearing land around his hilltop property in Reedy Creek, Victoria. Five years later, that property was the only structure left standing in the area following the state’s deadly Black Saturday fires.

    Electric Cars Will Challenge State Power Grids

    Seattle aims to have nearly a third of its residents driving electric vehicles by 2030. Washington state is No. 3 in the nation in per-capita adoption of plug-in cars, behind California and Hawaii. But as Washington and other states urge their residents to buy electric vehicles — a crucial component of efforts to reduce carbon emissions — they also need to make sure the electric grid can handle it.

    The average electric vehicle requires 30 kilowatt-hours to travel 100 miles — the same amount of electricity an average American home uses each day to run appliances, computers, lights and heating and air conditioning.

    A U.S. Department of Energy study found that increased electrification across all sectors of the economy could boost national consumption by as much as 38% by 2050, in large part because of electric vehicles. The environmental benefit of electric cars depends on the electricity being generated by renewables.

    Thanks to a software glitch at Facebook last week during a software update, anyone and everyone who wanted to see exactly who was posting under the accounts of public figures could do so.

    As such, roughly 3 million followers of young Greta could have discovered that the posts accredited to her were actually being made by her father, Svantes Thunberg, as well as a climate change activist in India who is a delegate at the UN’s Climate Change organization, Adarsh Prathap.

    So much for the teen’s ‘activism’ — though her ‘handlers’ still claim she is the author of the posts.

    Glacier National Park Changes Signs Saying Glaciers Would Be Gone by 2020

    Anyone visiting Montana’s Glacier National Park in the last decade or so would have expected all the park’s glaciers to be gone by now because that’s what the park’s signs said would happen. Now, with the glaciers still intact — and, according to some researchers, even growing — the park is quietly changing its displays to reflect reality, at least to some extent.

    Glacier Park In Montana Set To Remove "Glaciers Will All Be Gone By 2020" Signs

    Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

    Montana’s Glacier National Park is being forced to remove all signs that read “glaciers will all be gone by 2020,” after the doomsday scenario didn’t happen.

    No, this is not a satellite photo of the fires in Australia

    A satellite image of Australia, supposedly showing all the fires that are currently raging, circulates enormously on social networks. We can see that a good part of the country is covered with flames.

    In fact, it is not a satellite photo, but a 3D visualization project by Australian artist Anthony Hearsey. To create his image, he took data from NASA's Fire Information for Resource Management System (FIRMS), a forest fire information system around the world.

    In the image, Mr. Hearsey included all of the data from December 5, 2019 to January 5, 2020, so the image does not show the fires that are currently burning. In addition, the artist claims that the extent of the most illuminated areas is exaggerated by his 3D rendering.

    Australian wildfires were caused by humans, not climate change

    It’s very convenient for alarmist greens to blame the fires of Australia and California on global warming. In reality, the policies they themselves advocate are the culprits.

    Flashback: What's the carbon footprint of … the Iraq war?

    At the time of writing the financial cost of the US military operation in Iraq since 2003 has been estimated at $1.3 trillion, with a further $600 billion anticipated for the lifetime healthcare costs of injured troops. Extrapolating from the carbon intensity of the health and defence industries in the UK, it's possible to have a rough stab at converting this expenditure into carbon. This approach suggests that the US military operation in Iraq may have clocked up around 160–500 million tonnes of CO2e, plus a further 80 million tonnes for the healthcare of troops.

    Add on a few per cent to both numbers to include the coalition forces and, say, another 1% for the footprint of the much more poorly resourced insurgency, and we might be looking at 250–600 million tonnes – roughly equivalent to everyone in the UK flying to Hong Kong and back between one and three times. And that's excluding the direct emissions from explosions.
