Latest awful thing that global warming denial has helped cause: Aretha Franklin’s death

Science!

The list of things that are alleged to have been caused by global warming (the preferred summertime usage) and climate change (the preferred wintertime usage) “denial” can already wrap twice around the Earth at the equator, and thanks to Stevie Wonder the list just got a little longer:

Stevie Wonder visited the ailing star days before she died and said that at that point she was unable to speak.

“We have to celebrate her life and continue the legacy by letting people of all the various genres hear the music that influenced us all,” Wonder told CBS This Morning’.

Wonder drew a line between the increase of cancer and the ignorance of global warming. “I just feel that all these various diseases that we have and all that is happening in the world in part is because there are those who don’t believe in global warming, don’t believe that what we do affects the world,” he said. “What we eat affects the world and affects us. I just hope that people will grow up out of the foolishness and know that we all, by how we think, how we view, how we treat others, we will never unlock the key until we truly let go of the hatred, the bigotry, the evilness, the selfishness. We do that and we can unlock some of those things that keep us in this place”.

A 76-year-old woman passed away. If that’s not enough evidence to convince you man-made global warming is real and an emergency, nothing will.

NOT The Onion:

SCIENCE!

GREEN movement: DNC decides after 2 long months that maybe fossil fuel industry donations aren’t all that bad after all

THAT didn’t last long

My tweet best summed up how I feel about this story:

The DNC just wanted to make sure they remain fully committed to the “green” movement:

The Democratic National Committee passed a resolution Friday afternoon that activists say effectively reverses a ban on fossil fuel company donations.

The resolution introduced by DNC Chair Tom Perez states that the party “support[s] fossil fuel workers” and will accept donations from “employers’ political action committees.” It was approved by a 30-2 vote just two months after the committee adopted another resolution prohibiting donations from fossil fuel companies by a unanimous vote.

The new resolution nods to “forward-looking employers” that are “powering America’s all-of-the-above energy economy and moving us towards a future fueled by clean and low-emissions energy technology, from renewables to carbon capture and storage to advanced nuclear technology.”

Just watch now, in an Al Gore-ian twist, the Democrats will spin this to their angry base by pledging to spend the fossil fuel company donations to support candidates who will warn the world that fossil fuels are destroying the earth.

Irony gold standard: Construction of Obama Presidential Library delayed (guess why)

Hahaha!

As everybody knows, when Obama was president he and his administration had a tremendous love of government regulations:

But sometimes regulation-happy pols fall into their own traps.

Here’s more proof that what goes around comes around:

Groundbreaking for the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago will be delayed until next year because of a delay in the federal review process.

Construction on former President Barack Obama’s center was to start this year. However, the Obama Foundation says it now plans to break ground for the half-billion-dollar project sometime in 2019.

Before the presidential center can be built, the federal government will review its impact on Jackson Park. The park on the city’s South Side is on the National Register of Historic Places. The project’s environmental effects will also be analyzed. Any adverse effects must be resolved before construction is allowed.

Finally an environmental regulation has a positive impact! I hope the damn thing’s delayed ten years due to environmental studies, and when the Obama Library is finally constructed, it should be made entirely out of red tape for the perfect tribute to that part of Obama’s legacy.

Of course: U.N. finds way to tie soccer team being trapped in a cave in Thailand to climate change

They’re SO predictable.

They say that to a hammer everything looks like a nail, and the same is true when it comes to United Nations bureaucrats and “climate change.” Here’s the latest evidence:

And there’s this from the U.N. weather alarmist in question:

“It is the start of the monsoon season in Thailand,” she said. “I’ve been looking at the weather forecast there for Chiang-Rai, for the region, every day for the past week. Every day it has consistently shown the risk of thundershowers; now they haven’t, fortunately, materialized.”

So the thundershowers she forecast didn’t materialize. She says that’s a result of man-made climate change, but might I offer another radical explanation: She got the forecast wrong. It’s a crazy suggestion, I know.

They’s SO predictable.

This week’s Albert Gore Jr. Award for Brazen Achievement in Eco-Hypocrisy goes to…

HAHAHA!

Here’s a shot & chaser so hot it could single-handedly trigger a global warming apocalypse all on its own.

Singer Katy Perry is very concerned about man-made climate change caused by fossil fuel emissions:

Fortunately Mother Nature suspends all natural law if an eco-hypocrite celeb has needs on the night of a gala or awards show:

What’s even more amazing is that they’re shocked more people don’t buy into their BS.

Elizabeth Warren’s Earth Day plea: Elect Dems so things like the BP spill won’t happen again (Um…)

Give it a rest, Dances With Identity Fraud.

Another Earth Day is upon us, which means a fresh round of sanctimonious “fossil fuels and capitalism are killing the planet” BS from rich liberals tweeting on iPhones from their private jets en route to one of their many mansions. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is among Dems all over the Earth Day lectures.

Check out how Dances with Identity Fraud is putting an Earth Day spin on the BP spill and trying to make it about Trump:

That’s not the touting of liberal regulatory prowess Warren thinks it is. When the BP spill happened, the Democrats already had full control of Congress AND the White House for nearly a year-and-a-half. But sure, let’s blame the guy who didn’t even take office until almost seven years later.

Also, the Animas River spill didn’t happen under Trump and the Republicans — it happened during the regulation-happy EPA under Obama. Take your “shilling for the regulatory genius of the bloated bureaucracy” shtick back to the teepee, Fauxcahontas.

On a related note, this cracked me up this morning: EPA chief Scott Pruitt’s Earth Day observance might be enough to hospitalize triggered liberals:

Pass the smelling salts, Leo!

*****

Just for fun, here’s a portion of something I wrote for Earth Day a few years ago. I think it still holds up:

Why am I so grumpy about Earth Day yet again this year? Because I don’t like being preached to about what I should be doing, especially when I already do it. For starters, in my house, we celebrate Earth Day every day, like no doubt many of you do. How so? We don’t leave lights on in rooms that nobody is in. We keep the thermostat fairly low (mostly because I’m usually too hot). We carpool when possible. We don’t waste gas. We pick up trash when we’re out walking. We volunteer to clean up the river walk, and we plant trees because we like trees — not because we’ve fooled ourselves into believing that planting trees is our noble contribution towards helping make Al Gore’s mansions carbon-neutral.

As such, I tend to get a little put off when being preached to by mega-hypocrites who swim in their own heated pools, travel in private jets, play sports under bright lights at night, heat cavernous homes they’re not even living in for months at a time, trash national monuments when celebrating politicians who are going to save the environment, and ride in limo caravans to speeches where they tell the rest of us how our pickup trucks, lawn mowers, hamburgers and 75-watt light bulbs are killing the planet. I mean… F**K. YOU.

Here’s another reason I won’t participate in Earth Day celebrations: I refuse to acknowledge, symbolically or otherwise, that electricity and fuel — and the generation and refining thereof — is the problem and that civilization can be saved by turning itself into North Korea for any length of time.

The harnessing and generation of electricity are among the greatest discoveries ever. It’s helped make the world safer and more sanitary. Electricity runs the equipment that is used to make the medicine that saves lives. It runs the cameras, televisions and computers that allow us to see evils that are being perpetuated around the world that we might not have otherwise known about. And fossil fuels, an energy source that there is currently no substitute for when it comes to powering the masses, will remain a necessity for the wellbeing of the human race no matter how many times progressives click their heels together three times while repeating “There’s no place like Solyndra… There’s no place like Solyndra…” We should be celebrating electricity and fuel instead of pretending it’s some sort of cancer that needs to be cut out of our lives. Notice I said “our” lives, meaning the “regular” people — the rich eco-hypocrites, who will of course still fly on private jets and own multiple mansions, have no intention of ever living by their own proposed rules.

I’ll say this though: The co-founder of Earth Day wasn’t a hypocrite, at least when it comes to composting.

Do as jet-set celebrity eco-hypocrites say NOT as they do, part XXXVII

Al Gore’s hypocrisy spirit animal Leonardo DiCaprio is well known for offering dire warnings about what’ll happen if we continue to rely on fossil fuels:

It won’t surprise you to know that Dicaprio remains skeptical of his own warnings, as evidenced by how he got to Coachella last week (Hint: It wasn’t by bicycle or kumquat-powered golf cart):

The Daily Mail says that tagging along with 43-year-old Leonardo to Coachella this weekend was his 20-year-old model girlfriend of four months, Camila Morrone. They were seen on Saturday night, and they made it obvious they were together because they “couldn’t keep their hands off each other.” Camila was also seen feeding Leonardo pizza in a VIP section.
[…]
But not only did Leonardo let her tag along to Coachella, they also flew out on his private jet

DiCaprio’s pledge to give up private jets lasted about as long as my moratoriums on pizza.

The rest of us are expected to stop eating meat, keep our lights off and drive battery-powered go-carts to offset these massive hypocrites. By the way, it’s now past mid-April and I’m still freezing, so if their global warming warnings are going to ever kick in, now would be a good time.

Helios, ‘science’ denier! Al Gore’s got a new scapegoat if his predicted global warming apocalypse fails to materialize

Like clockwork, the beginning of a new year has brought with a fresh batch of “last year was the hottest year on record” claims. However, if the doom and gloom “science” crowd’s temperature rise predictions fail to occur, they won’t say they were wrong, but rather blame the sun for getting cooler:

Will the coming years mean human extinction from overheating, or freezing to death? Doesn’t look like the “science” is settled:

A study by the University of California San Diego has claimed that by 2050, the Sun is expected to become cool. You might think “what’s the big deal,” but remember that this means the solar activities that create the heat of the Sun to sustain life on Earth may diminish. And the last time it happened was in the 17th century when the Thames River froze. Scientists call this the “Maunder Minimum”.

Physicist Dan Lubin at the university and his team studied the past event and concluded that we are in for a worse case. The Sun is expected to get much dimmer than last time and, in scientific terms, it is a “grand minimum” — a time period in the 11-year solar cycle when the solar activities are at the lowest point.

According to the study, titled Ultraviolet Flux Decrease Under a Grand Minimum from IUE Short-wavelength Observation of Solar Analogs and published in the journal Astrophysical Journal Letters, this grand minimum will be 7 percent cooler than such periods from the past.

Scientists also said that the Sun might have another cooling period in a decade.

Guess we better fire up some more engines and burn some tires in order to speed up the rate of global warming so we don’t all freeze to death! Though Al Gore’s reaction will be something like “My warming predictions were spot-on, it’s just that the sun cooled off and ruined it.” Gore will then accuse Helios of being a “science denier.”

You might recall that another excuse for why the predicted sea rise hasn’t yet engulfed coastal areas isn’t that the melting ice caps aren’t raising water levels, but rather the sea floor is sinking. I shit you not.

They’ve certainly got all the bases covered.

Obama celebrating Earth-saving emission-reductions agreement by taking 3 jets to Hawaii

President Obama is thrilled about the “climate change” agreement reached in Paris by a bunch of people with dollar signs in their eyes:

To celebrate those historic emissions reductions that are crucial if humanity is to be saved, President Obama’s going to torch tens of thousands of gallons of jet fuel and along with it burn millions of taxpayer dollars:

Yep, that’s Air Force One and two other planes:

Fly-time alone will set taxpayers back somewhere in the region of $3.5million as Obama, the First Lady, Sasha and Malia and their two dogs jet off for around two weeks.
[…]
Exact figures for the trip – outside of Air Force One – are hard to obtain. According to a Watchdog.com report on the 2014 trip, there is also an Air Force cargo plane to bring Obama’s helicopter and limo, which costs more than $150,000 to get to Hawaii and back.

A second plane brings a Marine Corps contingent at similar cost.

The air feels cleaner already, doesn’t it?

John Kerry enters pantheon of great leaders like Lincoln, Churchill and MLK, according to… John Kerry

Today I heard Rush Limbaugh read this quote delivered by John Kerry during one of his “we’re all gonna die unless everybody except me stops flying and living in mansions” global warming alarmist speeches and I nearly drove off the highway:

“My heroes are people who dared to take on great challenges without knowing for certain what the outcome would be. Lincoln took risks, Gandhi took risks, Churchill took risks, Dr. King took risks, Mandela took risks, but that doesn’t mean that every risk-taker is a role model,” Kerry said speaking to the Atlantic Council as part of the “Road to Paris Climate Series.”

“Terrorism, extremism, epidemics, poverty, nuclear proliferation, all challenges that respect no borders – climate change belongs on that very same list. It is, indeed, one of the biggest threats facing our planet today,” he added.

Awful comparison by Lurch, who has obviously entered stage 5 of toxic Botox shock syndrome. People like Churchill, MLK, et al took on challenges without knowing for certain what the outcome would be, but Kerry, Gore, etc. have invented a challenge while knowing exactly what the outcome will be — because they’ve already scripted it.

In case anybody thinks that BS isn’t about silencing dissent, twice in the clip below Kerry mentions rights, and how those who disagree with the alarmism don’t have any on this matter:

1) “By what right do people just stand up and say ‘well I dispute that’?”

2) “That is a dramatic statement of fact that no one of good conscience has a right to ignore.”

John Kerry is the collective face of panicked grant recipients fearing the well is running dry, and you lose your “rights” if you disagree with him:

“The biggest threats facing our planet today” include lunatics like obscene hypocrite John Kerry.
