French foreign minister going out of his way to endear himself to Obama

This proposal will be an easy sell with the White House:

France’s foreign minister says the global climate agreement being negotiated this year must be worded in a way so that it doesn’t require approval by U.S. Congress.

Laurent Fabius told a group of African delegates at U.N. climate talks in Bonn on Monday that “we know the politics in the U.S., whether we like it or not, if it comes to the Congress, they will refuse.”

That would exclude an international treaty with legally-binding limits on greenhouse gas emissions — something some countries still insist on but which would have virtually no chance of being ratified by the Republican-controlled Congress.

Fabius will host the climate summit in Paris at the end of the year where the new agreement is supposed to be adopted.

Obama’s reply: “You had me at ‘go around Congress.'”

But hey, climate change is a global and national security threat, because Obama said so:

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.

If you need counseling for your ‘climate change’ grief, this eco-nut has you covered

Australia rivals the U.S. in the number of agenda-driven climate change alarmist nutcases roaming the countryside, as Celeste Young, “Collaborative Research Fellow, Centre for Strategic Economic Studies” at Victoria University, demonstrates:

Celeste Young – “a sustainability/climate change professional who works as a communication and operational specialist with a particular interest in innovation and the use of creative and business processes” – asks:

How can we help people and communities work through the climate grieving process?

One of Celeste’s excellent grief-coping suggestions:

Another way to help people accept these changes is through cultural activities that support the expression of grief. In Australia, local government, community, and the arts sector have led in this area. Storytelling is often used as it provides a structured and often empowering way of expressing difficult emotions.

Readers are invited to work through the climate grieving process by telling their stories in comments. Preferably these stories will involve jets, cars, motorcycles, mining, fracking, building, land clearing and other proven grief-recovery methods.

The “grieving process” we should be facilitating is forcing these kooks to watch their government grants dry up as fast as possible.

Guy who owns airline urges action against greenhouse gases (degree of difficulty: one of those actions can’t be shutting down his airline)

This crap is REALLY getting old, especially coming from a guy who runs a f*#king airline and is trying to develop a fleet of suborbital rockets for the purpose of space vacations for hypocritical celebrity eco-douchebags:

Nothing says “death by global warming is imminent” than surrounding yourself with snowmen.

Branson must have made his way to Switzerland on horseback like Al Gore and Pharrell Williams.

‘Green energy’ metaphor alert: Wind turbine keels over in strong 15 mph winds

This wreckage should now be relocated to Al Gore’s front yard:

Looks like it instinctively attempted to form the shape of a hockey stick.

The turbine had been spotted drinking earlier in the day, so maybe that had something to do with this:

A large wind turbine worth £500,000 mysteriously collapsed on an Irish mountainside during light winds.

The 262ft tall structure was found buckled and destroyed at Screggagh wind farm on Murley Mountain in County Tyrone, Fintona.

An investigation has now been launched into what caused the huge structure to collapse amid the sound of grinding metal, which could be heard as far away as seven miles.

It’s possible the thing was sabotaged by local birds.

Shocking! All-electric cars worse for the environment than gas-powered vehicles

Thanks for nothing, DiCaprio!

Where was the media on this a few years ago when the Obama administration and Department of Energy were lying their asses off about electric cars so they could grease their cronies with billions of taxpayer dollars? It’s not like it’s “breaking news,” but the MSM has to pretend it is:

People who own all-electric cars in places where coal generates the power are actually making the air dirtier, according to a new study. The key is the electricity’s source. If it comes from coal, the electric cars produce 3.6 times more soot and smog deaths than gas, because of the pollution made in generating the electricity, according to the study published Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. They also are significantly worse at heat-trapping carbon dioxide that worsens global warming, it found.

The study examines environmental costs for cars’ entire life cycle, including where power comes from and the environmental effects of building batteries. Coal produces 39 percent of the country’s electricity, according to the Department of Energy, with West Virginia, Wyoming, Ohio, North Dakota and Illinois with the highest percentage of coal-fired electricity.

The study finds that overall, all-electric vehicles cause 86 percent more deaths from air pollution than do cars powered by regular gasoline. But if natural gas produces the electricity? Half as many deaths as gasoline cars.

But instead of admitting that, in the current reality, electric cars aren’t feasible economically or environmentally, the green shammers simply “solve” that problem by trying to force coal plants out of business when there’s no replacement for the power they supply.

The sacrifices some people will endure to save Mother Gaia

The people who don’t read the free t-shirt before putting it on are the catalysts for the best jokes:

Let’s all go help her find the letter “e” that, because of climate change no doubt, fell out of the second position in the word “f_ast.”

And the pitch:

HAHAHA! Hopefully the phrase “parasitic climatic ambulance chasing” enters our lexicon on a more regular basis. That’s awesome.
