13 U.S. States Warn that Giant Climate Activists Funds Are Buying Up Public Utilities

By The Geller Report

We are besieged on all sides

Paraphrasing Ayn Rand, climate as a social principle . . . condemns cities, culture, industry, technology, the intellect, and advocates men’s return to “nature,” to the state of grunting sub animals digging the soil with their bare hands.

“The dinosaur and its fellow-creatures vanished from this earth long before there were any industrialists or any men . . . . But this did not end life on earth. Contrary to the ecologists, nature does not stand still and does not maintain the kind of “equilibrium” that guarantees the survival of any particular species—least of all the survival of her greatest and most fragile product: man.”

13 US States warn that giant climate activists funds are buying up public utilities

Move over divestment and boycott — and move in activist shareholders wielding other people’s money. After naive shareholders sold out, they didn’t have much influence over a company. But if they bought enough shares instead, they could practically run the place.

Good people left their money unguarded in pension plans and it came to be used against them.

The three largest asset managers in the world are BlackRock, State Street, and Vanguard. They swept up the retirement money left unwatched in accounts Big-Government forced everyone to have. The Big Three now manage $20 trillion dollars combined. They also happen to want to end fossil fuel use and save the world — because they are nice people, right. So we face the dilemma — The citizens rejected NetZero, but the citizen’s money gives the power to men like Larry Fink, head of Blackrock, to harrass the boards of oil and energy companies in order to get NetZero through the back door.

To appreciate how influential these monster funds are, ponder that they are the largest shareholders in nine out of ten of the S&P 500 Index companies and lately, they have been buying up US power utilities.

These funds joined the climate activist clubs (like GFANZ), and made their political ambitions clear. Despite that screaming potential conflict-of-interest, the government agency that was meant to stop this sort thing (FERC) gave special approval instead. Apparently BlackRock and Vanguard were allowed to buy as much as 20% of some public utilities if they just promised to be “passive” investors who didn’t use their shares to influence management. Who needs fences, just ask the fox not to eat the chickens OK?

Imagine if someone managing a galactic-blob of money made decisions about your energy grid, and what your electricity will cost, and you got no say in it? Government by Oligarchs? They won’t care what your electricity bill is.

The US State governments are the best hope for the West. Last month 13 US State Attorney’s raised the alarm. Perhaps this was one of the reasons Vanguard dropped out of GFANZ?

This is how we win. But it’s just the start of this battle. This is one facet of the dark bubble driving the madness.

State AGs Sound the Alarm About BlackRock, Vanguard Buying Large Stakes in Utilities

Berkshire Hathaway vice chairman says he doesn’t want Larry Fink to ‘be my emperor’

The acquisition by investment managers BlackRock and Vanguard of ever-increasing shares in America’s public utility companies is setting off alarm bells from conservatives and progressives alike.

In November, 13 state attorneys general petitioned FERC to deny Vanguard’s request. Claiming that residents of their states could be harmed if utilities are compelled to stop using fossil fuels in favor of wind and solar power, the attorneys general argued that “Vanguard is not entitled to a blanket authorization to acquire substantial equity and voting power in utility companies.”

Harnessing The Power Of The Stars—A Step Closer thumbnail

Harnessing The Power Of The Stars—A Step Closer

By Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

Nuclear fusion is the promising technology that could solve our energy needs, but it is always a decade off.

Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory in California have taken a big step forward.

Adam Houser reports at CFACT.org citing Fox Business:

Nuclear fusion has been pursued by researchers for years as the key to the world’s energy future. Clean, efficient, reliable, and powerful, nuclear fusion would change the world, and undercut the debate between solar and wind and fossil fuels almost overnight.

Yet for decades researchers have failed to prove that nuclear fusion can work in the real world, despite hundreds of millions (if not more) spent by governments and foundations across the world.

Now, however, scientists may have turned a corner. According to Fox Business, US scientists working out of a California laboratory “achieved a net energy gain in a fusion reaction.”

Fox Business reports:

“Scientists have been struggling since the 1950s to harness the fusion reaction that powers the sun. But no group has been able to produce more energy from the reaction than it consumes. 

“Though developing fusion power stations at scale is still decades away, the breakthrough has significant implications as the world seeks to wean itself off of fossil fuels. Fusion reactions emit zero carbon and do not produce any long-lasting radioactive waste. Per The Times, a small cup of hydrogen fuel could potentially power a house for hundreds of years. 

“‘If this is confirmed, we are witnessing a moment of history,’ said Dr Arthur Turrell, a plasma physicist, told the paper. ‘Scientists have struggled to show that fusion can release more energy than is put in since the 1950s, and the researchers at Lawrence Livermore seem to have finally and absolutely smashed this decades-old goal.’

“U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm and under-secretary for nuclear security Jill Hruby are expected to formally announce ‘a major scientific breakthrough’ at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory on Tuesday.”

Read the full story in Fox Business here.

In 2019 a team of CFACT researchers met with scientists at the ITER, or International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, in France.  Take a look at the video we posted to YouTube explaining this massive project.

The Wall Street Journal reminds us to temper our expectations, writing “what the experiment proved is that scientists can recreate the physical reactions in stars. But scaling the technology and making it commercially viable by most scientists’ accounts will likely take another few decades.”

At CFACT we remain sober about the scientific and engineering challenges facing the development of nuclear fusion technology.

Nonetheless, the potential of this safe, clean, endlessly abundant energy source could change everything.

Let’s do the science and find out.

For nature and people too.

Fauci merges COVID & Climate thumbnail

Fauci merges COVID & Climate

By Marc Morano

“Infectious diseases ‘largely the result’ of human ‘encroachment on nature’ & ‘often aided by climate changes’.” — Anthony Fauci

“What lab leak!? COVID was caused by climate change!? Fauci and the public health establishment want to keep both climate and COVID fears humming along to push their so-called solutions, so what better way than to merge the two issues!? Worried about COVID-19, then you had better support the UN Paris climate pact, the Green New Deal, and carbon taxes — or else you are a gramma killer!” — Marc Morano

Infectious diseases ‘largely the result’ of human ‘encroachment on nature’ & ‘often aided by climate changes’ – Published in New England Journal of Medicine

Fauci on December 1, 2022, in New England Journal of Medicine:

Fauci: “As I prepare to step down from my dual positions at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), where I have been a physician-scientist for 54 years and the director for 38 years, a bit of reflection is inevitable.” … 

Fauci: “The emergence of new infections and the reemergence of old ones are largely the result of human interactions with and encroachment on nature. As human societies expand in a progressively interconnected world and the human–animal interface is perturbed, opportunities are created, often aided by climate changes, for unstable infectious agents to emerge, jump species, and in some cases adapt to spread among humans.”

List of authors. Anthony S. Fauci, M.D. – From the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, MD.

Published December 1, 2022

N Engl J Med 2022; 387:2009-2011

Fauci Excerpts: As I prepare to step down from my dual positions at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), where I have been a physician-scientist for 54 years and the director for 38 years, a bit of reflection is inevitable.

[ … ]

Today, there is no reason to believe that the threat of emerging infections will diminish, since their underlying causes are present and most likely increasing. The emergence of new infections and the reemergence of old ones are largely the result of human interactions with and encroachment on nature. As human societies expand in a progressively interconnected world and the human–animal interface is perturbed, opportunities are created, often aided by climate changes, for unstable infectious agents to emerge, jump species, and in some cases adapt to spread among humans.

Flashback 2020: Anthony Fauci: COVID-19 is due to ‘extreme backlashes from nature’ – ‘Will require changes in human behavior’ & ‘Other radical changes’ – ‘Rebuilding the infrastructures of human existence’

Fauci, in a September 3, 2020 paper published in the biomedical journal Cell Press: “Living in greater harmony with nature will require changes in human behavior as well as other radical changes that may take decades to achieve: rebuilding the infrastructures of human existence…”


Former NYT reporter Alex Berenson responds: “But, see, if #COVID-19 turns out to be a testing-driven lil-bit-worse-than-a-bad-flu year, what then? Maybe we WON’T need to redesign all of human existence because some 79-year-old bureaucrat wants us to?”

“Why does Dr. Anthony Fauci, a division-level bureaucrat whose day job includes the word ‘allergy,’ think his brief now includes redesigning all of human society? And how monstrous must his ego have become for him to be willing to say so publicly?” Berenson asked.


2022: State Department official joins panel linking COVID origin to ‘human impact on ecosystems’

COVID/Climate Merging: Modeling study claims: ‘Climate Change Will Make Pandemics Like COVID More Likely’

“Climate change is creating a new age of infectious dangers.” Climate Change Could Spark Future Pandemics – “The research, published in Nature, uses modeling to map how climate change could shift the geographic ranges of 3,100 mammals species and the viruses they carry by 2070. … The findings suggest that climate change could “easily become the dominant [human] driver” of cross-species virus transmission by 2070, the authors say.”


Marc Morano: “They want to keep both climate and COVID fears humming along to push their so-called solutions, so what better way than to merge the two issues!? Worried about COVID-19, then support the UN Paris climate pact, the Green New Deal, carbon taxes, etc. or else you are a gramma killer!”

Marc Morano comments: “The climate movement is now merging their focus on linking viruses to “climate change” and thus making fighting climate change a part of fighting deadly viruses. Global warming promoters know that they should never let a crisis go to waste. They are pouncing on any opportunity to inject climate change into the COVID-19 issue.

They want to keep both climate and COVID fears humming along to push their so-called solutions, so what better way than to merge the two issues!? Worried about COVID-19, then support the UN Paris climate pact, the Green New Deal, carbon taxes, etc., or else you are a gramma killer!

The activists will then attempt to piggyback efforts like the Green New Deal as a part of future virus-fighting strategies. Already, media reports are claiming more Green New Deal Style policies are needed because ‘efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions may not be enough to stave off the increased transmission of viruses between species.’ Doctors are now clinically diagnosing patients with ‘climate change” and there are calls from academics to add ‘climate change’ as a cause of death on death certificates. In short, climate change can no longer survive on its own, it needs to be linked with COVID fears to prop it up as a concern.

The climate establishment spent decades trying to scare us about overpopulationglobal cooling, the amazon rainforest (allegedly disappearing), and finally, climate change and they utterly failed. A virus came along in 2020 and they realized that this cut across ideologies, cut across political affiliation and they were able to declare an emergency and suspend normal democracy. They were able to achieve their one-party state with an unelected bureaucracy.

Meanwhile, the data does not support this latest speculative computer model COVID/Climate scare story: See: H. Sterling Burnett’s analysis: Science Crushes Claimed Link Between COVID & Climate– ‘In reality, if a modestly warming Earth has any impact on viruses and pandemics, it is to make them less likely and less severe…Historically, we know that the Black Plague arose and ran rampant in Europe and elsewhere during the Little Ice Age.’

Bill Gates warns ‘climate change’ will cause more viruses like COVID-19 – Claims ‘it’s quite clear’ it originated in bats

Bill Gates: “It’s quite clear in this case, [Covid] came across through animals. And almost all our diseases, like HIV, crossed over from chimpanzees in Africa quite some time ago; Ebola came from bats, this also, with one step in between came across from bats.” – “So it’s going to keep happening, particularly with climate change where we’re invading a lot of habitats. And you want to catch it as soon as you can.”

US News & World Report: Climate Change Will Make Pandemics Like COVID More Likely: Report

April 28, 2022, at 8:36 a.m.

U.S. News & World Report

Excerpt: Planet Earth is growing hotter, forcing different animal species to migrate to new areas and interact with other unfamiliar creatures at an increasing rate. That phenomenon could have dire consequences to human health, a new study says, raising the odds for new viral illnesses such HIV (which originated in primates), as well as pandemics such as COVID-19, which many believe originated in a coronavirus that jumped from species such as bats or pangolins to people. Potential new contacts between different species are expected to essentially double over the next 50 years, increasing the risk that other viruses will jump from animal to animal and eventually into humans, researchers predict. Viruses will move to a new animal species at least 15,000 times by 2070 as a result of migration driven by climate change, according to projections published in the journal Nature.

NPR: Climate change may have one more side effect — another pandemic

Excerpt: NPR’s RASCOE: And you and your colleagues built a computer model to project how viral jumps between species might change in a warming world. What type of information did you use to build that model, and what did your results show?

CARLSON: So we’ve been running simulations on and off for about three years. We take huge climate models. We project where animals can go to track their habitats, and then we use machine learning to figure out what animals might be able to share viruses with each other. What we find is that everybody’s on the move. We found that most species are probably going to have at least one chance to pick up new viruses. And at a sort of global scale, this is really concerning news when it comes to human health because it means that species like bats that have coronaviruses, Ebola virus, all of these things we worry about, they’re probably going to need to share some of the same places that we already live. And they’re going to be sharing a ton of viruses in our backyard.

The Atlantic: We Created the ‘Pandemicene’ – By completely rewiring the network of animal viruses, climate change is creating a new age of infectious dangers.

By Ed Yong

Excerpt: For the world’s viruses, this is a time of unprecedented opportunity. An estimated 40,000 viruses lurk in the bodies of mammals, of which a quarter could conceivably infect humans. Most do not, because they have few chances to leap into our bodies. But those chances are growing. Earth’s changing climate is forcing animals to relocate to new habitats, in a bid to track their preferred environmental conditions. Species that have never coexisted will become neighbors, creating thousands of infectious meet-cutes in which viruses can spill over into unfamiliar hosts—and, eventually, into us. Many scientists have argued that climate change will make pandemics more likely, but a groundbreaking new analysis shows that this worrying future is already here, and will be difficult to address.


Forbes: Climate Change Could Spark Future Pandemics, Study Finds

Global warming could fuel future pandemics by dramatically increasing the risk viruses will jump into humans from other animals, researchers warned Thursday, illuminating another hidden and far-reaching cost of the climate crisis.

As the world gets warmer, many animals will be forced to find new places to live, taking any parasites and pathogens they carry along for the ride, researchers wrote in Nature. The researchers examined how climate change could alter the geographic range of some 3,100 mammal species between now and 2070 and how this might affect the transmission of viruses between species.

Even under the most optimistic climate forecasts—less than 2°C warming—the researchers predict climate change will trigger at least 15,000 new instances of viruses crossing between species for the first time by 2070.  The researchers said these “spillover” events will be predominantly driven by bats—which can travel large distances, are likely to carry pathogens capable of infecting humans and are widely believed to be the source of Covid-19—and concentrated in densely populated areas in Asia and Africa. While it’s not clear precisely how the new viruses will affect species involved, Dr. Gregory Albery, one of the study’s lead authors and a disease ecologist at Georgetown University, said it is “likely” many will “fuel the emergency of novel outbreaks in humans.” With human activity driving temperatures upwards, this process could already be well underway, the researchers warned, adding that efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions may not be enough to stave off the increased transmission of viruses between species.

Climate change ‘already’ raising risk of virus spread between mammals

Excerpt: Mammals forced to move to cooler climes amid global warming are “already” spreading their viruses further – with “undoubtable” impacts for human health, a new study says. The research, published in Nature, uses modelling to map how climate change could shift the geographic ranges of 3,100 mammals species and the viruses they carry by 2070. …

The findings suggest that climate change could “easily become the dominant [human] driver” of cross-species virus transmission by 2070, the authors say.

Climate Change To Increase ‘Zoonotic Spillover’ — Yes, That’s Very Bad

Flashback 2020: Harvard School of Public Health links Climate & COVID: ‘The root causes of climate change also increase the risk of pandemics’ – ‘We also need to take climate action to prevent the next pandemic’

Dr. Aaron Bernstein, Director of Harvard Chan C-CHANGE: “We also need to take climate action to prevent the next pandemic.” … “Climate change alters how we relate to other species on Earth and that matters to our health and our risk for infections.” … “Many of the root causes of climate change also increase the risk of pandemics.”

Update:The ‘Great Reset’: Rule by Unelected ‘Experts’ – COVID-Climate Technocracy has arrived – ‘The danger of letting lab coats run the world’ – Special Report

The climate movement is now merging their focus on linking viruses to “climate change” and thus make fighting climate change a part of fighting deadly viruses.

Former Sec. of State John Kerry on ‘the parallels between the coronavirus and the climate crisis’: “Climate change is a threat multiplier for pandemic diseases, and zoonotic diseases — 70 percent of all human infections — are impacted by climate change and its effect on animal migration and habitats.”

Washington Post’s science reporter claims: ‘Climate change affects everything — even the coronavirus’ – ‘No aspect of life on this planet has been untouched by climate change — viruses included’

Jane Fonda: ‘Climate change guarantees that COVID-19 will not be the last pandemic we will see’ – “The melting of the Arctic ice sheet is releasing untold pathogens to which humans are not immune. Climate change guarantees that COVID-19 will not be the last pandemic we will see.”

The activists will then attempt to piggyback efforts like the Green New Deal as a part of future virus-fighting strategies.

Climate activists: Coronavirus response needs to be ‘a Global Green New Deal’ to ‘decarbonize the global economy as fast as is feasibly possible’

Global warming promoters know that they should never let a crisis go to waste. They are pouncing on any opportunity to inject climate change into the COVID-19 issue including attempts to make sure that federal stimulus bills include going in the “right direction toward decarbonization.”

The expected merging of COVID & Climate: CBS News: Study: Climate change ‘may have played a key role’ in coronavirus pandemic – Claims it may make ‘future pandemics more likely’

Rolling Stone mag: “How Climate Change Is Ushering in a New Pandemic Era”: The author writes, “[a] warming world is expanding the range of deadly diseases and risking an explosion of new zoonotic pathogens from the likes of bats, mosquitoes, and ticks.” The article is long on assertions, touching anecdotes, and personal stories but short on facts and scientific evidence.

Rebuttal: Science Crushes Claimed Link Between COVID & Climate– In reality, if a modestly warming Earth has any impact on viruses and pandemics, it is to make them less likely and less severe…Historically, we know that the Black Plague arose and ran rampant in Europe and elsewhere during the Little Ice Age.

H. Sterling Burnett: Climate alarmists and major media outlets are deceitfully exploiting the coronavirus pandemic to tell the public lies that climate change makes pandemics more likely and severe. In reality, the evidence is quite clear that warmer temperatures make pandemics and underlying outbreaks of viruses like the flu less frequent and severe. In a March 24 editorial in The Hill, Vinod Thomas, former direct-general of the Independent Evaluation Group at the World Bank Group, writes, “There is a link to pandemics, like COVID-19, and a warmer world….” Thomas’s claim follows many others in the media. For example, a recent Time magazine article states, “I have no evidence that climate change triggered this particular virus to jump from animals to humans at this particular time, or that a warmer planet has helped it spread. That said, it’s pretty clear that, broadly speaking, climate change is likely to lead to an uptick in future epidemics caused by viruses and other pathogens.” …

Numerous studies demonstrate that transmissible diseases like the flu and the coronavirus are far more prevalent and deadly during the late-fall, winter, and early spring, when the weather is cold and damp, rather than in the summer months when it is warm and dry. That is a reason the flu season runs from fall through early spring, and then peters out. And colds, while not unheard of, are less common in the summer as well.

Chapter 7 or the Non-governmental International Panel on Climate Change’s report of Climate Change Reconsidered: Biological Impacts details the results of dozens of peer reviewed studies and reports showing premature deaths from illness and disease are far more prevalent during colder seasons and colder climate eras rather than during warmer seasons and warmer climate eras.

In 2010, British Broadcasting Channel’s health correspondent Clare Murphy analyzed mortality statistics from the UK’s Office of National Statistics from 1950 through 2007 and found, “For every degree the temperature drops below 18C [64 degrees Fahrenheit], deaths in the UK go up by nearly 1.5 percent.”

U.S. Interior Department analyst Indur Goklany studied official U.S. mortality statistics and found similar results. According to official U.S. mortality statistics, an average of 7,200 Americans die each day during the months of December, January, February, and March, compared to 6,400 each day during the rest of the year.

In an article published in the Southern Medical Journal in 2004, W. R. Keatinge and G. C. Donaldson noted, “Cold-related deaths are far more numerous than heat-related deaths in the United States, Europe, and almost all countries outside the tropics, and almost all of them are due to common illnesses that are increased by cold.”

More recently, in a study published in the Lancet in 2015, researchers examined health data from 384 locations in 13 countries, accounting for more than 74 million deaths—a huge sample size from which to draw sound conclusions—and found cold weather, directly or indirectly, killed 1,700% more people than hot weather. No, that is not a typo – 1,700% more people die from cold temperatures than warm or hot temperatures.

Contrary to the fear-mongering assertions in The Hill and Time, the overwhelming scientific evidence shows it is cold, not heat, that kills. Therefore, a modestly warmer world, with shorter, less severe winters, should result in fewer premature deaths from disease, viruses, pandemics, hunger, and other natural causes.

2021: Epic Fail: Chuck Todd Tries to Bait Anthony Fauci on Climate Change

BBC: How much does human breathing contribute to climate change?

BBC Excerpt: In one day, the average person breathes out around 500 litres of the greenhouse gas CO2 – which amounts to around 1kg in mass. This doesn’t sound much until you take into account the fact that the world’s population is around 6.8 billion, collectively breathing out around 2500 million tonnes of the stuff each year – which is around 7 per cent of the annual CO2 tonnage churned out by the burning of fossil fuel around the world.

So, on the face of it, we humans are a significant contributor to global warming. But, in reality, the CO2 we’re breathing out is part of a natural cycle, by which our bodies convert carbohydrates from CO2-absorbing plants into energy, plus water and CO2. As such, we’re not adding any extra CO2.

German Molecular Biologist Unveils Concept of World’s First Artificial Womb Facility Which Can Incubate up to 30,000 Lab-Grown Babies a Year (VIDEO)

By Jim Hof,: TPG, December 12, 2022:

On Friday, a German molecular biologist by trade unveiled a new concept for the world’s first artificial womb facility, EctoLife, which could incubate up to 30,000 babies a year.

“My new concept will be unveiled early December, something that I have been working on for a while,” said Hashem Al-Ghaili in November. “The new concept relies on over 50 years of groundbreaking scientific research.”

Hashem Al-Ghaili is a molecular biologist, producer, filmmaker, and science communicator based in Berlin, Germany.

EctoLife, which operates solely on renewable energy, enables infertile couples to conceive and become the biological parents of their own offspring.

“It’s a perfect solution for women who had their uterus surgically removed due to cancer or other complications. With EctoLife, premature births and C-sections will be a thing of the past. EctoLife is designed to help countries that are suffering from severe population decline, including Japan, Bulgaria, South Korea, and many others,” according to its press release.

“According to the World Health Organization, around 300,000 women die from pregnancy complications. EctoLife artificial womb is designed to alleviate human suffering and reduce the chances of C-sections,” Hashem wrote.

In an interview with Science and Stuff, Al-Ghaili revealed that he believes the EctoLife concept would replace natural birth in the future.

A total of 75 fully functional laboratories can be found within the building, according to the press release. Up to four hundred artificial wombs, or “growth pods,” can be housed in each cutting-edge laboratory. Every pod is made to be just like the conditions inside the mother’s uterus.

MIT Climate scientist: Climate is an absurd, quasi-religious scientific narrative thumbnail

MIT Climate scientist: Climate is an absurd, quasi-religious scientific narrative

By Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

CFACT’s Climate Depot is reporting on a hard-hitting paper by Dr. Richard Lindzen, the renowned MIT climate scientist, which rejects the prevailing global warming narrative by relying on peer-reviewed science published in academic journals.

Dr. Lindzen calls into question the extent to which global temperature corresponds to atmospheric concentration of CO2.  He also calls the notion of designating CO2 a “pollutant” ridiculous reiterating the essential role it plays in sustaining life.  He points out that, “if we were to remove a bit more than 60% of current CO₂, the consequences would be dire: namely death by starvation for all animal life.”

Dr. Lindzen’s conclusions strike at the very core of the global warming narrative:

This all leaves us with a quasi-religious movement predicated on an absurd ‘scientific’ narrative. The policies invoked on behalf of this movement have led to the US hobbling its energy system (a process that has played a prominent role in causing current inflation), while lifting sanctions for Russia’s Nordstream 2 pipeline, which was designed to bypass the existing pipeline through the Ukraine used to supply Germany. It has caused much of the European Union to ban exploitation of shale gas and other sources of fossil fuel, thus leaving it with much higher energy costs, increased energy poverty, and dependence on Russia, thus markedly reducing its ability to oppose Mr Putin’s aggressions. [ [ … ]

Unless we wake up to the absurdity of the motivating narrative, this is likely only to be the beginning of the disasters that will follow from the current irrational demonization of CO₂. Changing course will be far from a simple task. As President Eisenhower noted in his farewell address in 1961: The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded. Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.

CFACT has known Dr. Lindzen for decades.  His work is first rate.

Dr. Lindzen writes with the courage of a man of knowledge and conviction, but also with the courage of a retired academic who need no longer fear professional retaliation.

Let’s hope more academics with the courage to boldly question the dogma afflicting climate science will bravely speak out.

Do Some Climate Alarmists Wish Us All Dead? thumbnail

Do Some Climate Alarmists Wish Us All Dead?

By Jerry Newcombe

What is the end-game of some extremists who believe in the threat of catastrophic, man-made climate change? The end of humanity.

In contrast, the founders of America operated out of a Judeo-Christian framework. The Bible was by-far the most widely read and studied book during America’s founding.

The framers declared that it is self-evident that we have been created equal and have been endowed by our Creator with certain key rights—first listed amongst them is the right-to-life.

But some of today’s climate alarmists want to see a global change to pull the plug on that right—not just for our country, but basically for humankind. And they certainly want to put the kibosh on the Biblical command to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth with humans.

Why do some climate alarmists essentially wish us all dead? Because they think people are bad for the earth. They don’t believe in God. They claim to believe in science. But what is the evidence that people are supposedly bad for the earth?

The Atlantic recently had an article (January/February 2023 issue), focusing on this idea that some experts today are promoting human extinction, for the sake of the planet.

They write: “From Silicon Valley boardrooms to rural communes to academic philosophy departments, a seemingly inconceivable idea is being seriously discussed: that the end of humanity’s reign on Earth is imminent, and that we should welcome it…. It is a rejection of humanity’s traditional role as Earth’s protagonist, the most important being in creation.” [emphasis added]

They call this view “transhumanism”—that we should get beyond humanity, and we should engage in “drastic forms of self-elimination.”

As noted, this contrasts sharply with the Biblical command that humanity should be fruitful and multiply. Argue the transhumanist “experts” quoted in The Atlantic: “But if being fruitful and multiplying starts to be seen as itself a form of killing, because it deprives future generations and other species of irreplaceable resources, then the flourishing of humanity can no longer be seen as simply good.”

The New York Times features an article on a 75-year old man who promotes a similar message: “Earth Now Has 8 Billion Humans. This Man Wishes There Were None.”

They write: “For the sake of the planet, Les Knight, the founder of the Voluntary Human Extinction movement, has spent decades pushing one message: ‘May we live long and die out.’”

Knight often spreads the message, “Thank you for not breeding.”

They add, “Mr. Knight is among those who believe that overpopulation is a main factor in the climate crisis.” The article notes that “a 2020 poll found that one in four Americans who had not had children cited climate change as a reason.”

Ideas have consequences. What begins as a discussion of hypotheticals in the faculty lounge may eventually become policy somewhere. These are worldviews in conflict.

I remember years ago, one Christian speaker made this observation:

  • In the 18th century, the Bible was killed. (Higher critics beginning in Germany attacked the Scriptures and postulated that they couldn’t be trusted.)
  • In the 19th century, God was killed. (Darwinism supposedly eliminated the need for the “God hypothesis.”)
  • In the 20th century, Man was killed. (Nazi Germany’s Holocaust and the Communists’ murder of some 100 million persons are two prominent examples.) And now some of these climate alarmists are arguing that even more human beings should willingly die out…for the sake of the planet.

I reached out to author Wesley J. Smith, the Chair of the Discovery Institute’s Center for Human Exceptionalism, for a comment on this idea. He told me, “The Human Extinction Movement is a form of nature worship, expressing the belief that the world will be pristine without us. But why will that matter? No one will be around capable of appreciating nature’s wonder.”

I also asked for a reply from Dr. E. Calvin Beisner, the president of the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation, who is a major critic of the unproven hypothesis of man-made, catastrophic climate change.

Beisner noted, “The proposal is absurdity in the extreme. Even the scenarios for the future in the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s scientific reports, exaggerated as they are, don’t depict human-induced global warming as an existential threat or even a great crisis. Such claims come only from the UN’s and various nations’ political leaders, environmental activists, and the mainstream media.”

And he added, “The hope for human extinction is nothing more than anti-human. Christians, who recognize that people are the image of God, will recognize it as attacking God in effigy.”

Beginning with a dubious premise, the alarmists have reached a dubious conclusion. This relatively new push for no more humans reminds me of the verse in the Bible where God’s wisdom says, “All who hate me love death.”

Hanoi Jane: Racist, Misogynistic ‘Mindsets’ Causing Climate Crisis thumbnail

Hanoi Jane: Racist, Misogynistic ‘Mindsets’ Causing Climate Crisis

By Discover The Networks

Friday on MSNBC’s The Beat, anti-American activist and former actress Jane Fonda claimed ludicrously that racist and misogynistic “mindsets” are causing the “climate crisis.”

Anchor Ari Melber began, “What do you think about the progress made and the progress being unwound when you look at the court’s decision in Roe [v. Wade], which we know turned out a lot of voters in the midterms.”

Fonda said, “Yeah, it did. We’ve experienced having the right to control our bodies. That is not going to go away. We’re not going to give that up. So while it is absolutely unconscionable what the Supreme Court did, I believe that we’re going to fight and win to get those rights back.”

Fact check: the Supreme Court did not ban the “right to control” one’s own body. Its recent decision simply returned the abortion issue to the states.

“But, you know, as I learn more about climate and as I dig deep as I have for the last four or five years, what you realize is if there were no racism, there would be no climate crisis,” Fonda continued. “If there was no misogyny, there would be to the climate crisis. It is a part of a mindset. It is the mindset that looks at a woman and says, ‘nice tits,’ or she could work in the fields. It is the same mindset as the person who looks at the tree and said floors that could make good flooring. Everything is transactional, and hierarchy and certain things matter more than other things. So what has to happen is we not only have to stop new fossil fuel development, we have to change our mindsets.”

If there were no racism or misogyny, there would be no climate crisis? How does anyone get away with making such absurd pronouncements in the media? Oh, that’s right — Fonda is a Progressive celebrity. That’s how she gets away with it.

TAKE ACTION: Protect Right Whales from Big Wind Turbines thumbnail

TAKE ACTION: Protect Right Whales from Big Wind Turbines

By Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

CFACT officially weighs in.


I’ve told you about CFACT’s efforts to protect the North Atlantic Right Whale from a huge Virginia offshore wind project.

Now, you can help!

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) is presently accepting comments regarding their “Strategy” to protect the Right Whale as new offshore wind projects go up across the Eastern Seaboard. This comment period ends on Sunday.

Let me assure you, there is no “protecting” going on from BOEM regarding the Right Whale. The Biden Administration is all-in on offshore wind as part of their radical climate agenda, which means the bureaucracies that should be protecting wildlife are turning a blind eye to push through “green” energy.


Click here to tell BOEM “no way!” Just submit your comment in the text box and tell BOEM you are steadfastly opposed to their Strategy to push wind power at the expense of the right whale.


Make sure you submit your comments soon, as the deadline is just days away!

For our part, CFACT has submitted comments to BOEM that expose their willful negligence.

Collister “Terry” Johnson explained in his comments how the government’s rules for offshore wind will directly violate its own prior rules regarding the killing of the whales:

“According to the National Marine Fisheries Service’s own definition, ‘this means that for the [right whale] to recover, the population cannot sustain, over the course of a year, the death or injury of a single individual due to human causes.’ …The Strategy proposes to establish a set of rules which seeks to minimize and reduce human caused mortality [of the whales] but does not eliminate it. Elimination can’t be accomplished in an ocean environment which is industrialized with 3,411 turbines and 9,874 miles of submarine cable.”

These turbines will be 700 feet tall and have blades longer than a football field. CFACT isn’t going to stand idly by while the Biden Administration forces these monstrosities on our ocean vistas, destroying endangered wildlife in the process.


Will you help us expose this deadly plan? Click here and tell BOEM you are 100% opposed to their Strategy plan!

While Americans Can’t Afford To Heat Their Homes, Biden Pays Muslim Country Billions to Dump Coal thumbnail

While Americans Can’t Afford To Heat Their Homes, Biden Pays Muslim Country Billions to Dump Coal

By Jihad Watch

As part of talks led by John Kerry, donors are exploring how solar might replace the coal plants.


While Americans can’t afford gas or to heat their homes, Biden is bragging of a deal to subsidize solar panels in Indonesia.

Americans have too much money. And too much everything. Let’s give it all away.

The United States, Indonesia and other allies signed a $20 billion deal on Tuesday at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit that will help Indonesia reduce its reliance on coal.

The goal of the agreement, called the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP), is to help Indonesia reduce emissions and transition away from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

This isn’t a deal.

This is welfare and a bribe to convince a Muslim regime that has massacred Christians and continues to oppress them to switch its energy from reliable coal to worthless wind and solar.

And they’re taking us for every billion they can get.

The G7 and its partners have made multi-billion dollar offers to wean Vietnam, Indonesia and India off coal — but it has yet to convince emerging economies to drop the dirtiest fossil fuel.

The three deals have been under negotiation through much of 2022 and are being modeled on an earlier, $8.5 billion deal to shut down South Africa’s coal industry, dubbed a Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP).

It’s hoped that at least two new partnerships might be unveiled during the COP27 U.N. climate talks, which start on November 6 in Egypt. Discussions with Vietnam and Indonesia have advanced to the point where initial cash offers of around $5 billion and $10 billion, respectively…

If you think that’s bad, the Green New Dealers want to get India and eventually China on board. And at that point we’re talking completely nightmarish numbers that would bankrupt everyone.

U.S. President Biden emphasized the importance of this partnership, saying, “Indonesia has shown tremendous leadership and ambition throughout the development of this partnership. The resulting new and accelerated targets demonstrate how countries can dramatically cut emissions and increase renewable energy while advancing a commitment to creating quality jobs and protecting livelihoods and communities.”

While destroying American jobs, livelihoods and communities.

Save the Planet—Kill Yourself thumbnail

Save the Planet—Kill Yourself

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

The United Nations warned in 2018 we only had 12 years left for global warming to be kept to a minimum of 1.5 degrees Celsius or further warming would bring catastrophic droughts, floods, extreme heat, and poverty for hundreds of millions of poor, suffering humans.  Urgent changes were needed, OR ELSE!  Urgent, I tell you, URGENT! 

You wouldn’t know it from the results of this year’s annual U.N. climate summit which just ended with a deal for rich nations to transfer money to poor nations, but no deal to reduce emissions.  So let me get this straight:  We have eight years left to keep the planet from burning up, but nothing could be done at the climate summit on the urgent business of curbing emissions?

The whole thing is a joke, a psyop – we’re all being manipulated like puppets on a string.  One of the countries eligible for climate reparations under the new deal is China, a rich nation which built almost a hundred new coal-fired power plants last year.  The joke just got worse.

One indicia of psychological manipulation is the way they cranked up the propaganda machine for this year’s summit.  The U.N. Secretary-General said nations must cooperate or perish – PERISH, I tell you.  We’re on “a highway to climate hell with our foot on the accelerator,” he said.  Oh, my, that sounds dreadful, what will we ever do?  The only thing becoming overheated is the rhetoric.  Then there was another sea level scare which arrived right on time, right when the summit was set to begin.  The idea the seas are rising because of climate change is bunk.  A recent study showed coastal cities are sinking due to groundwater extraction, giving the illusion sea levels are rising.  A human-caused problem, to be sure, but not one that can be fixed by eating bugs or buying an electric car.

Another indicia of manipulation is data tampering.  I’ve told you previously how climatistas are tampering with temperature sensors and re-writing satellite data.  Now comes word they’re lying about the number of 90-degree days increasing in the U.S.  They conveniently start their graphs in 1960, deliberately ignoring the fact there were many more 90-degree days in the 1930s than there are now.

A third indicia we’re all being manipulated is the increasing frequency with which climatistas are revealing their true agendas.  I told you before the summit Greta Thunberg’s true aim is to smash the capitalist system.  She’s not the only one.  John Kerry wants to create artificial demand signals in the marketplace for electric cars, renewables, fake meat, and, yes, eating bugs.  By the way, it’s been reported John Kerry wants to leave his climate czar post to make more money for himself raising capital for clean energy projects.  I keep telling you, these people need to put out financial disclosure statements every time they open their mouth and pontificate about the wonders of clean energy or talk up carbon trading markets.  Selling soap, or selling clean energy and carbon credits – what’s the difference?  Speaking of hidden agendas, the open borders crowd is rebranding illegal aliens as ‘climate migrants’ to boost acceptance for open borders policies.  More manipulation.

The logical conclusion, if you let yourself be manipulated by all this, is that you must kill yourself to save the planet.  You have no right to emit carbon dioxide or consume anything.  This is what some climate gurus have been advocating for some time.  So get the ‘Save the Planet, Kill Yourself’  t-shirt, sing the song, then it’s off to a euthanasia clinic in Switzerland with you.  As one climate guru put it, the earth will be so much better off when there aren’t any people on it.

Climate Reparations? When nature strikes—you pay! Climate ‘loss and damage’ hits the UN thumbnail

Climate Reparations? When nature strikes—you pay! Climate ‘loss and damage’ hits the UN

By Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

Are you ready to pay climate reparations totaling more than all the money in the world for disasters nature caused?

For years CFACT has warned of plans to add “loss and damage” to the UN climate regime, making wealthy nations liable to compensate developing countries when extreme weather strikes.

This week 130 nations placed a draft loss and damage funding plan formally on the agenda for the first time at a UN climate conference.  Will the Biden Administration give in to this?  Who else?

Read the official UN COP 27 loss and damage proposal for yourself at CFACT.org.

China is masterfully outplaying Biden and the rest of the free world by both pushing loss and damage forward and exempting itself from paying.  This advances China’s strategy to supplant U.S. influence in the developing world.

This is incredibly dangerous, not to mention ruinously expensive.

David Wojick underlines the danger perfectly at CFACT.org with his coverage of a report the new left-wing government of Colombia submitted to COP 27 estimating its climate “loss and damage” at a mind-blowing $800 billion per year.

That’s just for one small South American country!

Wojick explains that:

Colombia is a relatively small country with a GDP of around $300 billion a year, about the 40th largest in the world and just 0.4% of the global total. Its “loss and damage” claim is roughly 2.5 times its GDP, so let’s assume that ratio globally.

World GDP is about $81 trillion, which multiplied by 2.5 equals just over $200 trillion a year…

Before the “loss and damage” talks proceed we should ask “What kind of money are we talking about?” Because there is no point in talking about paying the developing countries hundreds of trillions of dollars. It cannot happen.

The UN draft demands a loss and damage funding mechanism be in place and operating within two years, before the start of COP 29 in 2024.

The COP 27 draft calls for loss and damage reparations funds that are:

a) Urgent and immediate

b) New, additional, predictable and adequate so as to assist developing countries in meeting the costs of addressing loss and damage;

c) Additional to adaptation and mitigation funding;

d) Additional;

e) Predictable;

f) Public in origin;

g) Multilateral in origin;

h) Taking a whole-of-institution/organization approach;

i) Timely and through a simple and fast process, without the need for lengthy bureaucratic procedures;

j) Disbursed quickly;

What “loss and damage” scheme will Biden and the West agree to at the UN climate summit in Egypt?

You are not responsible for the weather in Colombia or anywhere else.  America has always been prepared to generously aid a neighbor in distress and should continue to do so.  That is entirely different than accepting legal liability.

Any loss and damage “compromise” in Egypt represents the thin end of a perilous wedge.

America must declare an unequivocal “no” to climate reparations at the COP 27 climate talks.

Anything is too much.

Demoralization of the target audience is yet another step in successful mind control. 


Every big lie in one giant fund. Climate, gender and race. Boom.

“Communist demoralization in the modern times.”

Biden Administration Launches Multimillion-Dollar ‘Climate Gender Equity Fund’ to Address Inequalities

President Joe Biden announced the launch of his multimillion-dollar “Climate Gender Equity Fund” to address purported inequalities women face in climate finance at the United Nations COP 27 climate conference in Egypt on Friday.

By: Jordan Dixon-Hamilton, Breitbart News, 11 Nov 2022:

The Climate Gender Equity Fund will “leverage private sector contributions to help provide women climate leaders with technical skills, networks, and capital to develop and scale climate solutions,” according to a White House statement.

The program will have initial seed funding of $6 million, with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) matching e-commerce giant Amazon’s $3 million investment.

The program will have initial seed funding of $6 million, with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) matching e-commerce giant Amazon’s $3 million investment.

Amazon said the program will have a “global focus” and “help women access the networks and technical skills they need to accelerate the development of their climate change technologies.”

Amazon worldwide sustainability vice president Kara Hurst said:

As an important step in solving climate change, we must address the gender inequalities that persist in climate finance, and ensure female entrepreneurs have an equal seat at the table and access to the funding, networks, and technical support they need to scale climate solutions. We’re proud to collaborate with USAID and the Biden administration to help scale women-led climate solutions globally.

Amazon added that “female-founded companies typically receive a fraction of total venture capital, and that percentage fell during the pandemic.” Amazon also announced it would allocate an additional $50 million from its Climate Pledge Fund to invest in women-founded and women-led climate tech companies.

Biden’s White House also launched, among other programs, the “Indigenous Peoples Finance Access Facility,” a $2 million program that will “enable the continued climate stewardship by Indigenous peoples and local communities improving their access to climate finance.”

Globalists Eat Gourmet Meats at Climate Summit while Pushing Public to Eat Bugs to Save the Environment thumbnail

Globalists Eat Gourmet Meats at Climate Summit while Pushing Public to Eat Bugs to Save the Environment

By Jihad Watch

Globalist elites are dining on a “gourmet selection of meats, fish, and dairy at the United Nations COP27 climate change conference in Egypt, as they push supposedly more sustainable foods like bugs.” Yet the public keeps voting them in. Consider also the fact that the West is in severe decline, with bad economies and energy shortages, which globalists have caused, while also facilitating open-door illegal migration.

The globalist plan is international socialism, but to attain this utopian vision, globalists have determined to crush the people psychologically, financially, and in other ways, including a loss of freedom that makes for a massive power differential between the rulers and the populace. Historically, socialism has never worked, yet the globalists still present it as a solution for the poor. The reality is that it creates a deep divide between the totalitarian ruling class and the poor, with the degradation of the humanity of the latter.

Globalist leaders who travelled by private plane and who are now dining on fabulous gourmet meals used, in total, 118 private jets to go to the COP26 Climate Summit last year. They and burned over a 1,000 tons of CO2. This year’s COP27 Summit is no different.

COP27: Globalist Leaders Munch on Meat as They Push Bugs for ‘Proles’

by Kurt Zindulka, Breitbart, November 9, 2022:

Globalist elites will be dining on a gourmet selection of meats, fish, and dairy at the United Nations COP27 climate change conference in Egypt, as they push supposedly more sustainable foods like bugs.

Beef medallion with mushrooms sauce, chicken breast with orange gravy, and salmon with creamy sauce and chives are some of the menu options that world leaders, diplomats, bureaucrats, and industry bigwigs will be chomping down on at the COP27 meeting in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt this week.

The COP Gourmet service also offers an hour and a half of bottomless cocktails for £110 ($125). Attendees are also offered delivery service for items such as paper cups, plastic water bottles and wooden coffee stirrers.

The menu flies in the face of the stated goals of the United Nations, with a 2018 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report saying: “Meat analogues such as imitation meat (from plant products), cultured meat, and insects may help in the transition to more healthy and sustainable diets.”

The World Economic Forum, which has partnered with the UN at COP27 has also been at the forefront of the meat-free future movement, arguing that people should opt for more “climate beneficial foods” such as algae, seaweed and cacti….

Scottish author and political commentator Neil Oliver said: “They’ve come to lecture us about eating less meat while they sit down to menus featuring beef, chicken, salmon, and sea bass and cream sauces. This is not leadership that we are seeing now, it’s desperation, it’s trolling us proles on a galactic scale.

“The policies that they are preaching are condemning hundreds of millions of the world’s poorest to poverty, starvation, death on a global scale and at the same time, in their cynicism, they are ensuring that the populations of their own countries are plunged into fuel and food poverty for the first time in generations.”

Biden climate speech in Egypt reveals bad science, massive spending and regulation

By Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

President Biden, seeking to “greenwash” his failing energy policy, delivered a speech at COP 27, the big UN climate conference in Egypt.

The President falsely attributed a host of natural weather events to climate change and then went on to detail a massive laundry list of wasteful climate spending and destructive regulation.

The President said that:

In the United States, we’re seeing historic drought and wildfires in the West, devastating hurricanes and storms in the East.

Here in Africa — here in Africa, home to many nations considered most vulnerable to climate change, food insecurity [and] hunger follows four years of intense drought in the Horn of Africa.

Meanwhile, the Niger River in West Africa, swollen — swollen because of more intense rainfall, is wreaking havoc on fishing and farming communities.

In Nigeria, flooding has recently killed 600 people; 1.3 million more are displaced.

Seasonal livestock migration routes have been used for hundreds of years are being altered, increasing the risk of conflict between herders and local farming communities.

President Biden is wrong.

All of this is natural weather.  Government policy can help people suffering the impacts of extreme weather, but nothing on this list was meaningfully caused by our use of energy.

Floods, droughts, fires, storms, even African “livestock migration” are historically normal and not your fault.

Watch President Biden’s full COP 27 remarks at CFACT.org and read the full transcript and judge for yourself.

President Biden’s media office, joined by Climate Envoy John Kerry, released a lengthy U.S. climate “fact sheet” that summarizes Biden’s climate spending and regulation since he took office and their plans for the future.

Here’s a sample:

  • Double U.S. contributions to the UN “Adaptation Fund” from $50 to $100 million this year.
  • $150 million for “climate resilience in Africa.”
  • $20 million for small island states
  • $5 million to the Migration Multi-Partner Trust Fund to support “climate-affected vulnerable migrants.”
  • Launching a “Climate Gender Equity Fund”
  • $250 million for power generation in Egypt
  • Severe clampdown on methane emissions by American energy producers with $20 billion in spending
  • Close to $4 billion on “Green Shipping” initiatives
  • Require federal contractors to publicly disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and comply with government mandated emissions reductions
  • Commit U.S. national government operations to be “net zero” no later than 2050
  • Quadruple U.S. climate finance to over $11 billion a year
  • More than $65 billion in climate finance through the U.S. Trade and Development Agency and U.S. Export-Import Bank

Read the President Biden’s full climate “fact sheet” at CFACT.org.

In addition to Biden, Friday saw a presentation at COP 27 by the Republican “Climate Caucus,” who many see as “useful idiots” playing into the hands of the climate-Left.

As CFACT’s Adam House posted to CFACT.org: “by participating in this ‘Decarbonization Day,’ these Republican lawmakers have legitimized the UN’s message of collectivism, massive taxes and government spending, corrupt and alarmist science, and centralized power. In their attempt to be part of the conversation, they have only eroded the conservative message.”

President Biden’s climate and energy agenda is based on unsound science, would lead to massive erosion of national sovereignty, individual liberty, and prosperity that will weaken the free world and empower its adversaries.

This cannot stand.

Yet what lies in store for those of us with the courage to marshal the facts and correct the record on climate?

Take a look at this photo Marc Morano posted of a climate radical calling for the “death penalty” for “climate deniers” to CFACT’s Climate Depot.

If world leaders go on shamelessly egging them on, could climate radicals go from attacking great works of art to attacking people?

Watch: CFACT Protesters ‘Glue’ Themselves to Egyptian Museum

By Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

Left-wing climate protesters have been going nuts (more than usual) throwing soup on precious works of art and gluing themselves to things.

Not to be outdone, Marc Morano and I “glued” ourselves (well, watch the video) to a display case in the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization.

“No Net Zero! No Green Energy Mandates!” was the call of CFACT’s activists before we were (jokingly) escorted out by security.

WATCH NOW

The wave of lawlessness, trespass, and vandalism left-wing radicals have unleashed has become surreal.  Imagine throwing canned soup on Van Gogh paintings in London and Rome (as if poor Vincent didn’t torture himself enough).

When protesters identifying themselves as “scientists” recently glued themselves to the floor of a Volkswagen factory in Germany, they were shocked when workers turned off the lights and heat and denied them a bowl to use for a toilet.  Nothing “settled” about these idiots’ “science.”

Over the years CFACT has made quite a name for ourselves, not only for the outstanding scholarship and sound science the Left has come to fear, but for poking more than a little creative fun at clueless radicals who so richly deserve it.

“The human race has only one really effective weapon,” Mark Twain said, “and that is laughter.”

What better way to thwart our would-be leftist overlords than to laugh them off the stage?

For nature and people too!


P.S. President Biden is hoping his appearance at the UN climate summit in Egypt will somehow justify his disastrous policies that are blocking American energy production and transportation.  Thank you to everyone who had given so generously to make it possible for CFACT to blow the whistle on the destructive plans being unveiled in Sharm El Sheikh.  Please make the most generous gift you can right now and together let’s defeat the climate-Left with cold hard facts and then laugh them off the stage.  Thank you!

UN Climate Conference Does Not Value Our Freedom But Loves Our Cash thumbnail

UN Climate Conference Does Not Value Our Freedom But Loves Our Cash

By Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow

CFACT is at the big UN climate conference in Egypt where we are engaging in climate diplomacy with a far different perspective than most.

CFACT questions fearlessly, informs diligently, and communicates relentlessly.  Underlying our approach is our bedrock confidence that individual freedom is both the most efficient way to order human society and an “unalienable right.”

At the UN climate conference a freedom-oriented approach can be a lonely endeavor.  Freedom creates prosperity.  One thing the ideologues and profiteers here assembled do value, however, is our cash.

CFACT’s Marc Morano told Mark Steyn on GB TV that, “Al Gore went beyond billions, tens of billions, he’s now talking four trillion dollars annually and he doesn’t even want it from governments. He wants some kind of corporate spending on climate. Al Gore has upped the money game like I’ve never seen in the history of all these climate summits.”

CFACT’s Peter Murphy engaged a COP 27 energy panel and reports that, “when I questioned her about the concern that many people do not want to live in cities and enjoy having their own car, and that such government mandates are at variance with democracy, she retorted that “we are not against democracy…we are about showing people that it benefits them.”

Murphy saw the climate command and control mindset was on full display when urban planner Kathleen Cameron told the panel “if we make roads narrower so people can’t speed through them, people feel inconvenienced, and they’ll want to go to alternative forms of transit. If you make it less fun to drive, you will soon discover that riding a bike is incredibly free and empowering.”

There are some signs that government officials are waking up to our continued need for fossil fuels, but sadly they would rather import them than produce them at home.  Real Clear Energy published an article I submitted where I write, “European and other countries are finally realizing that they still need fossil fuel energy – that wind and solar are too expensive and unreliable to power modern economies, preserve jobs, and keep people warm during frigid winters. Russia’s war on Ukraine has driven this home dramatically.

So Europe wants to switch from Russia to Africa for oil, gas and maybe coal – while still refusing to finance fossil fuel projects for Africa’s own needs, and telling Africa to rely on wind and solar.”

While Europe and America definitely need to wake up and unleash domestic energy production, Duggan Flanakin points out at CFACT.org that one positive note being repeated at COP 27 is that Africa has vast energy resources that can lift up that continent and the world.  “The message that.. countless African entrepreneurs and growth-oriented officials have for COP 27 is to get out of the way and let us “Drill, Baby, Drill.” The world, they argue, will benefit from a prosperous, energized African continent.”

The UN climate folks are intent on wrecking our energy economy and are making a concerted push for vast power as they seek unimaginable riches.

Too many people are unaware of what the UN is up to in Egypt and just how dangerous climate extremism has become.  That needs to change.

Lions, Tigers, and Polar Bears – Oh, My! thumbnail

Lions, Tigers, and Polar Bears – Oh, My!

By The Daily Skirmish – Liberato.US

The 27th annual U.N. climate change conference (COP27) got underway in Egypt today.  This time, they promise to get down to business, but it doesn’t have anything to do with the climate.  It has to do with poor nations shaking down rich nations for money.

More on that in a moment, but we start with the fact the United Nations, which organized the conference, has a very bad track record on climate predictions.  It predicted in 1989 entire nations would be wiped off the face of the earth if global warming was not stopped by the year 2000.  It said global warming would be irreversible after that year.  Last week – 33 years later – it said we are very close to irreversible changes in the climate.  Ah yes, climate change is the fake religion of the future – and always will be.

But a bad track record of predictions didn’t stop the climate change crowd from cranking up the propaganda machine for this year’s conference.  The past eight years were the hottest on record, the U.N. screamed.  Except there was a 20-year pause in the rise of the global mean surface temperature of the earth ending in 2019 that the climate change crowd can’t explain.  Now we’re in a New Pause.  They don’t want to talk about that, either.  They also don’t want to talk about another one of their great deceptions – rising temperatures killing more older people than ever before.  The fact of the matter is that heat deaths among the elderly are not up significantly after you adjust for population growth.

But the glaciers are disappearing, we were told in the run-up to the conference.  They say the glaciers will all be gone by 2050, but in 1923 it was predicted the glaciers in Glacier National Park would be gone by 1950.  It didn’t happen.  So they changed their prediction to 1961, then to 2000, then to 2020.  Still didn’t happen. In fact, the glaciers in the park have actually gotten bigger in the last 30 years.  You can put the disappearing glaciers right next to the disappearing coral reefs and polar bears.  They didn’t happen, either.  You know, the climate liars really should give it a rest, especially after NPR let the mask slip last month and revealed recycling is a huge fraud on a gullible public.

But let’s get down to business – there’s money to be made.  Despite repeated failures by many nations to live up to past promises, this year’s conference will extract new promises from rich nations to redistribute wealth to poor nations in the name of climate change.  ‘Loss and damage funding’, they call it.  Rich nations must pay their fair share for causing the climate change that didn’t happen or wasn’t caused by human activity, you see.  How much money are we talking about?  As much as ten times the amount rich nations are forking over now.  Poor nations will need half a trillion dollars by 2050, the U.N. says.  But why be so miserly, and why wait?  Developing countries are demanding a trillion dollars a year right now.  We feel so guilty – how can we not give it to them?

Germany is knocking down wind turbines to make way for coal mining, and the leftist finance minister there now supports fracking to boost natural gas supplies.  Climate whiz kid Greta Thunberg won’t be happy until the entire capitalist system is overthrown.  Well, that puts the true agenda right out there, doesn’t it?  The whole phony climate agenda is continually being shown as unsustainable and for the fraud it really is.

But I’ll make you a deal:  I’ll agree to a new carbon tax on fossil fuels IF you’ll agree to child and slave labor taxes on the minerals in your electric car batteries, AND a tax on Chinese influence and Russian funding of American green groups, AND a data tampering tax.  Let’s call the last one the ‘hockey stick’ tax.  It should bring in a lot of money because the climate crowd keeps cooking the books.  I’d propose a failed predictions tax, but the U.N. couldn’t afford it.

VIDEO: Carlson, ‘The Left Has Run This Country Into the Ground’

By The Geller Report

At this late stage in the ruin of our country, Tucker Carlson’s opening monologues are the lighthouse, a safe harbor in this dark and terrible storm. If there is one thing you do, tune in – every night – this oasis of truth will fortify you and stiffen your resolve to fight this overwhelming take down of our once great country.

It is our responsibility as Americans to defend our Constitutional Republic.

TRANSCRIPT

Polls suggest that even places that supported Joe Biden by a wide margin in 2020 are about to swing dramatically against him and his party. A week from today, New York, of all places, could have a Republican governor. The last time there was an election in New York, Biden won the state by 23 points. What we’re seeing is what political scientists refer to as a realignment, and there’s no mystery as to why it’s happening. Democrats failed conclusively. No group in American history has done a worse job running this country than the neoliberals currently in charge. They’re vicious, they’re intolerant and they are utterly corrupt, but above all, they are incompetent.

In less than two years, it is not an overstatement to say, they have run this country into the ground, wrecking our economy, desecrating our military and opening the borders of the United States to more than 5 million lawbreakers. The destruction they have wrought is so profound it’s hard to describe. So of course, there will be consequences for that.

In a country with democratic elections, how could this party stay in power? Honestly, we don’t know, but maybe Joe Biden does. Tonight, Biden traveled across the city of Washington to Union Station. Built by Teddy Roosevelt more than 100 years ago, Union Station was for generations one of the most beautiful public buildings in this country. Under Joe Biden, it has become a homeless encampment, a place that is too filthy and too dangerous for Starbucks. Standing at this monument to his own failures, Biden proceeded to do what he now so commonly does: Bark at the rest of us for our moral failures. The guy who showered with his daughter is telling you you’re a bad person. Tonight’s topic: Democracy. Here’s a taste of it.

PRESIDENT BIDEN: Yet now, extreme MAGA Republicans aim to question not only the legitimacy of past elections, but elections being held now and into the future. The extreme MAGA element of the Republican Party, which is a minority of that party, as I said earlier, but it’s the driving force is trying to succeed where they failed in 2020 to suppress the right of voters and subvert the electoral system itself.

Well, that’s very weird if you think about it. Here we are less than a week before the Democratic Party is expected to suffer overwhelming losses in the midterm elections and here you have the leader of that party, Joe Biden, commanding you not to complain about the election results. Why is that? Well, let’s see. Here’s Joe Biden telling you that thanks to the changes, the many changes, Democrats have made to our system of voting, all of which make voter fraud easier to commit, we may not know the results of the elections for a few days, but don’t be alarmed. Everything is completely on the level and whatever you do, do not ask questions or else you’re a criminal.

BIDEN: We want Americans to vote. We want every American’s voice to be heard. Now we have to move the process forward. We know that more and more ballots are cast in early voting or by mail in America. We know that many states don’t start counting those ballots until after the polls close on Nov. 8. That means in some cases we won’t know the winner of the election — for a few days, until a few days after the election. It takes time to count all legitimate ballots in a legal and orderly manner. It’s always been important for citizens in a democracy to be informed and engaged. Now it’s important for citizens to be patient as well. That’s how it’s supposed to work.

What is this? What is going on here?

We’re a week from the election, six days. Biden could have given, would under normal circumstances have given, a speech about his policies and how they’ve made your life better. He tried to convince you this country is actually in better shape than it looks and he did that. He could, in other words, have made a pitch for your vote based on what he has done. That’s what politicians do in functioning democracies. They try to convince you to support them on the basis of what they have done for you. That is democracy. That’s not at all what Joe Biden just did. Instead, Biden commanded you to accept the election results whenever they arrive, no matter what they may be. It was bizarre and it did not inspire confidence.

You would hate to think that what’s happening here is a version of what is happening tonight in Brazil. According to official tallies, a convicted criminal, an avowed socialist, called Lula da Silva, beat the incumbent president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, by a narrow margin this weekend and yet millions of Brazilians, millions, don’t believe that’s what actually happened. Bolsonaro himself has not conceded. There are protests all over Brazil right now. You’re seeing some of them on your screen right now. There are questions about whether all the ballots had been counted, why so many were thrown out — millions — and whether election laws were violated in the process.

We can’t render judgment on those questions, but if you care about democracy, if you think the process is essential, then you would look into those allegations. Anything less is not democracy, and yet what’s interesting and maybe a point of concern for the rest of us here in the U.S., is that you are no longer allowed to ask questions about this election in Brazil and you’re not allowed because the Biden administration doesn’t want you to. That’s true. YouTube, which has functioned for the last two years as an arm of the Biden administration, has announced it is censoring any posts in Brazil that question the election results. Brazil’s courts have also rejected any inquiry into the election.

Gavin Newsom Shells Out $1.6 Million To Stop Climate Measure That Would Raise Taxes On The Rich thumbnail

Gavin Newsom Shells Out $1.6 Million To Stop Climate Measure That Would Raise Taxes On The Rich

By The Daily Caller

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s reelection campaign spent over $1.6 million to oppose a climate initiative that would raise taxes on millionaires to help low-income Californians buy electric cars. Despite this, Newsom, who is a multimillionaire, has previously touted his administration’s efforts to rapidly cut carbon emissions and get more electric vehicles (EVs) on the road.

Newsom, who boasts an estimated net worth of around $20 million, signed a bill in September to codify ambitious emissions reduction targets and praised the California Air Resources Board’s decision to ban all gasoline-powered car sales by 2035. However, Newsom’s campaign gave $1,617,216 to the “No on 30” committee, which opposes Proposition 30, a ballot measure that institutes an additional 1.75% tax on individuals that make over $2 million a year to help disadvantaged Californians buy EVs, according to campaign finance disclosures filed Tuesday.

Newsom aims to make his state’s auto industry “all-electric” by 2035 and will spend $10 billion of taxpayers’ money to “aggressively fight the climate crisis” by phasing out gas cars and building EV infrastructure. The Democrat called Proposition 30 an irresponsible “special interest carve-out” and argued that the proposed law was designed to “funnel” state income tax to Lyft, a large rideshare company, according to a statement Newsom’s campaign provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Newsom aims to make his state’s auto industry “all-electric” by 2035 and will spend $10 billion of taxpayers’ money to “aggressively fight the climate crisis” by phasing out gas cars and building EV infrastructure. The Democrat called Proposition 30 an irresponsible “special interest carve-out” and argued that the proposed law was designed to “funnel” state income tax to Lyft, a large rideshare company, according to a statement Newsom’s campaign provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“California’s tax revenues are famously volatile, and this measure would make our state’s finances more unstable − all so that special interests can benefit,” Newsom said in the statement. “Californians should know that just this year our state committed $10 billion for electric vehicles and their infrastructure, part of a $54 billion nation-leading package to fight climate change and build a zero-emission future.”

A small percentage of California taxpayers would fund Proposition 30’s EV initiatives as only 35,000 of the state’s residents reported adjusted gross incomes greater than $2 million, according to 2019 statistics published by the state’s Franchise Tax Board.

Although the measure could help Lyft by raising money to help the company’s drivers buy electric cars, environmentalists began drafting the measure before the company became involved, CEO of California Environmental Voters Mary Creasman told CBS News. A Lyft spokeswoman previously told the Daily Caller News Foundation that none of the $3.5 billion to $5 billion in tax revenue generated by the law was “earmarked” for the rideshare industry.

Californians will vote to implement or reject Proposition 30 on Nov. 8.
