A report on net zero goals commissioned by the British government has said that all new gas-powered boilers should be banned within the next ten years – a move that would cost average households thousands.
The Independent Review of Net Zero, written by Conservative (Tory) MP Chris Skidmore — the man who first introduced Net Zero targets in Parliament — has called for a radical transformation of homes in Britain, arguing that the sale of new gas boilers should be completely phased out within a decade and for legacy heaters to be replaced by allegedly more environmentally friendly heat pumps.
The report was commissioned during the brief tenure of former prime minister Liz Truss, who attempted to lift the ban on domestic fracking — a reform which was swiftly killed off by current premier Rishi Sunak after he was installed in a parliamentary party coup.
A Pittsburgh children's hospital is under fire after its gender program navigator advocated for helping transgender women get pregnant by giving reproductive organs to them from live donors.
In a presentation on "Fertility in the LGBTQIA+ community" last May that went viral this week, the community navigator for a youth gender program at the University of Pittsburgh Children's Hospital discussed the criteria the medical community uses for gender transition in adolescents, as well as a 2018 study on uterine transplants for transgender patients.
"One area that had not been looked at before in any serious way was could the donors be live donors?" Alicyn Simpson, who works with the hospital's pediatric Gender and Sexual Development Program, asked. "Live donation has been something the [transgender] community has talked about for decades, it was really thought about as magical thinking."
Simpson said that trans men "assigned female at birth" would discuss the possibility of giving their reproductive organs to trans females.
The Democrat Governor J.B. Pritzker announced that he would punish law enforcement officers that refuse to enforce his ban on semiautomatic weapons.
The governor has signed a bill to ban semiautomatic weapons in the State, which is not well-received by state officials.
Sheriff Nicholas M. Petitgout stated, “Part of my duties that I accepted upon being sworn into office was to protect the rights provided to all of us in the Constitution.”
The Blaze added that he stated, “One of those enumerated rights is the right of the people to keep and bear arms provided under the 2nd Amendment. Therefore, as the custodian of the jail and chief law enforcement official for McDonough County, neither myself nor my office will be checking to ensure that lawful gun owners register their weapons with the State. Nor will we be arresting or law-abiding housing individuals that have been charged solely with non-compliance of this Act.”
