The Guardian changes their language regarding global warming

As the left has been doing for years, when not content with facts regarding the hysteria of global warming, change the language to scare the masses.

The Guardian (a very, very left-leaning British newspaper) announced last week that they are changing the language they use about the environment. Their intention is to “more accurately describe the environmental crises facing the world.”

From their announcement:

“Instead of “climate change” the preferred terms are “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” and “global heating” is favoured over “global warming”, although the original terms are not banned.

“We want to ensure that we are being scientifically precise, while also communicating clearly with readers on this very important issue,” said the editor-in-chief, Katharine Viner. “The phrase ‘climate change’, for example, sounds rather passive and gentle when what scientists are talking about is a catastrophe for humanity.”

Other terms that have been updated, including the use of “wildlife” rather than “biodiversity”, “fish populations” instead of “fish stocks” and “climate science denier” rather than “climate sceptic”. In September, the BBC accepted it gets coverage of climate change “wrong too often” and told staff: “You do not need a ‘denier’ to balance the debate.”

Earlier in May, Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who has inspired school strikes for climate around the globe, said: “It’s 2019. Can we all now call it what it is: climate breakdown, climate crisis, climate emergency, ecological breakdown, ecological crisis and ecological emergency?”

Rapper Drake purchases massive private jet despite rapping about dangers of climate change

No doubt Leo is hoping to catch a ride on that private plane one day…

From Daily Mail: Drake now owns a massive Boeing 767 cargo plane – despite once rapping about the dangers of climate change on the polar ice caps.

The ‘Trophies’ rapper unveiled his new possession on Instagram Friday and the aircraft features his OVO owl symbol, along with the moniker ‘Air Drake.’

OVO stands for Drake’s company – October’s Very Own – and for his record label OVO sound.

The 32-year-old Grammy winner took viewers on a quick tour of the plane’s interior. Inside the plane are luxury gold and brown sofas adorned with gold walls. ‘No rental, no timeshare, no co-owners,’ he proudly boasts as he shows off his new plane.

In the clip, Drake also pays homage to CargoJet’s President and CEO Ajay Virmani. He stated: ‘That guy made it happen right there, that’s the man.’

The unveiling of the plane comes after news broke that Drake had partnered with the Canadian company.

‘We are very excited to partner with Drake as our ambassador and assisting him with his logistical needs and requirements,’ Virmani said in the statement. ‘We have had a lengthy relationship with Drake and this partnership has grown organically between both parties. Cargojet and Drake are both great Canadian successes, we are thrilled to be partnering together.’

Airways magazine puts the massive plane at approximately $185million – and that is without the customization.

But the new plane does seem to go against a brief moment when the rapper appeared to warn on the dangers of climate change.

In his song ‘Heat of the Moment’ he makes reference to climate change and specifically the melting of the ice cap. ‘And all the cops are still hangin’ out at the doughnut shops,’ he says in the song. ‘Talkin’ ’bout how the weather’s changin. The ice is meltin’ as if the world is endin.’

While the song is about his relationship with a woman, it is clear he was thinking about the impending chaos that would come with climate change.

Now it seems he’s aiding in the process.

———————

Back in 2014, “Kill Your Darlings” described Drake’s “Heat of the Moment” ballad as such:

He uses the song as a platform to rail against climate change and examine his own complicity in the ongoing degradation of the natural world.

He enters a state of existential reflection, with a realisation of his impeding mortality: what will be the intrinsic value of his music, if the ice caps melt and the world is no longer sustainable? Or perhaps more pertinently, he realises that with his stadium-sized cultural standing, and ability to impact on the world at large, he is in an undeniable position of power to enact meaningful change and ensure the survival of the planet’s ecosystem – a network nearly as complicated, beautiful, and wonderfully diverse as Drake himself.

The ‘strap’ (condom) that Drake doesn’t have on him is a poignant metaphor for his hitherto unprotected involvement with the neoliberal capitalist structures that enable his multi-million dollar success as a recording artist. He has engaged with these structures without giving any thought to the potential consequences if he proceeds with his irresponsible lifestyle of shallow pleasures. The reference to the ‘last man’ leaving his girl behind, and him picking ‘it’ up, is a sly post-imperialist nod to the ways in which the Baby Boomer generation have acted without care toward our planet, and an acknowledgement that Drake’s generation, which has perhaps previously been reluctant to assume this responsibility, must now do so.”

Read the rest here where they state, Drake has bought himself a Prius – he’s ‘riding clean’ – and yet, in this confession he makes directly to God, he is still thinking about his many luxurious gas-guzzling mistresses – ‘but I’m thinking dirty things, yes Lord, yes Lord’.

Pope Francis calls capitalism ‘a fallacious economic model’

Pope Francis, real name Jorge Bergoglio, is a neo-Marxist liberation theology adherent who, in May 2014, endorsed the redistribution of wealth by the state.

On July 9, 2015, he accepted from Bolivian socialist Evo Morales the sacriligious “Marxifix” — a crucifix in the shape of a hammer and sickle.

On May 3, 2019, speaking like the Green Nazi he is, Bergoglio blamed environmental degradation and the world’s poor on capitalism, calling it “a fallacious economic model that has been followed for too long”.

Catholic News Agency reports that Pope Francis made those remarks in an audience with 60 participants in the meeting, “Mining for the Common Good,” in the Apostolic Palace. The meeting was organized by the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development. Mining industry executives from Latin America, Africa, Asia, and Canada participated in the meeting, along with Anglican, Methodist, and Catholic leaders “dedicated to development” — whatever that means.

In his remarks, Pope Francis blames the state of the world’s environment and of the poor (“the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor”) on capitalism: “The precarious condition of our common home has been the result largely of a fallacious economic model that has been followed for too long” — an economic model that is “profit-oriented, shortsighted, and based on the misconception of unlimited economic growth,” which results in a “disastrous impact on the natural world.”

He said “We need a paradigm shift in all our economic activities” because capitalist economic powers “continue to justify the current global system where priority tends to be given to […] the pursuit of financial gain, which fail to take the context into account, let alone the effects on human dignity and the natural environment.”

If Pope Francis thinks the solution of the world’s environmental problems is to replace the “outmoded” economic model of capitalism with socialism, he is only displaying his ideological blindness and gross ignorance. Does he not know that, in addition to a human toll in the hundreds of millions, socialism/communism is an unmitigated disaster on the environment? As examples:

  • East Germany: At the time of its reunification with West Germany an estimated 42% of East Germany’s moving water and 24% of its still waters were so polluted that they could not be used to process drinking water; almost half of the country’s lakes were dead or dying and unable to sustain fish or other forms of life; 44% of its forests were damaged by acid rain. Sten Nilsson, a Swedish forest ecologist, described East Germany as “on the verge of total ecological collapse.” (The Federalist)
  • Poland and Romania: Children from the Upper Silesia area of Poland had five times more lead in their blood than children from Western European cities. In some areas of Romania, the air was heavily polluted that horses were only allowed to stay for two or three years. (1992 Cato Journal paper)
  • Soviet Union: A 1996 study by the Library of Congress found that post-Soviet Russia’s air was “among the most polluted in the world”; 75% of its surface water was polluted; 50% of all water was not potable (drinkable). Then there is the Chernobyl nuclear reactor disaster, one of numerous episodes of serious environmental damage which plagued the Soviet nuclear sector. Less known than Chernobyl is a 1957 explosion at the Mayak nuclear reactor, which resulted in “long-term contamination of an area of more than 800 to 20,000 square kilometers” with 10,000 people forced to evacuate and an unknown number of deaths. (Wikipedia) The Soviet fleet — the largest nuclear-powered navy in the world — sometimes disposed of reactors by simply dumping them into the ocean.
  • China: Thousands of dead, bloated pigs floating down the river that supplies Shanghai with its drinking water. Air pollution in Beijing so impenetrable the U.S. Embassy’s air quality measuring station can only call it “beyond index.” Industrial towns where rates of cancer are so high they’re known as “cancer villages.” More than half of China’s surface water is so polluted it cannot be treated to make it drinkable; one-quarter of it is so dangerous it can’t even be used for industrial purposes. About 1 million square miles of China is now under desertification — that’s about one-quarter of the country’s total land surface, spread across 18 provinces. (Live Science)

Colin Grabow, a policy analyst based in Washington, DC, points out that the environmental destruction associated with communism is no coincidence or accident of history, but rather a logical outcome of political authoritarianism, an absence of private property rights, and capitalism’s production of wealth and technology. His rebuttal to Pope Francis would be:

There is no society, nor has one ever existed, which featured zero pollution or harm to the environment. The only question is how best to manage it, and which system is best positioned to accomplish this. On that question the answer is surely capitalism, home to the world’s richest countries and cleanest environments. It isn’t even close.

You go first: Alec Baldwin says Americans must make certain sacrifices to save the planet from climate change

Want to know what kind of sacrifices Alec makes?

Alec has five children.

Alec has a NYC apartment (comprised of three units) which has two master bedroom suites and takes up the 12th floor of a building.

Alec’s “sacrifice” in the Hamptons…

Alec has a HUGE mansion in the Hamptons.

Back in 2011, Alec was paid to promote airline travel/miles via the “Match My Miles” program for Capital One. The deal: Open a Capital One Venture Card and consumers had the opportunity to match up to 100,000 miles they currently have (had) in an airline credit card rewards program.

Sacrifices for thee but not for me.

From Daily Mail: Alec Baldwin was speaking at a UN panel in NYC on the subject of threats to forest defenders during an annual meeting on Tuesday.

The 61-year-old star opened up about his passion for preserving the planet and called for the public to make ‘certain sacrifices.’

‘I recognize – as does anyone that is paying attention that Indigenous Peoples across this planet are on the front lines of the fight to protect forests and deserve and need the support and protection of the international community,” he said.

The SNL star added that his sole love for the planet wasn’t enough, with the rest of the United States needing to get on board in order to stop the ‘enslavement of Indigenous People.’

‘I’m an American, and I love my country. I’m very proud of my country but I also recognize that the United States is built on a core of building blocks and those are: political resources; friendly and manageable borders; hard work; innovation; ingenuity, but also slavery and the enslavement of Indigenous Peoples.’

Alec called for the public to make ‘certain sacrifices’ if we want to see the planet thrive and help combat climate change.

He also insisted that he loves the UN because of its ‘permanent missions’ to make the world a better place.

‘There are things that we just can’t imagine that can happen in terms of the food supply, in terms of climate change, in terms of flooding in coastal areas in the United States and beyond. The time is now to make certain sacrifices … so that this planet will remain habitable for today’s children,’ he preached.

‘My favorite thing about the UN is the word “permanence”, they have permanent missions and permanent forums. They’re the only ones who can say, “We’re here and we’re not going anywhere.” And I love the inevitability of that.’

Hollyweird stars who are “moving toward reducing their carbon footprints”

Earth Day is upon us!

That means the spin comes out of Hollyweird to highlight actors who claim to care so much about the environment while they spew massive carbon emissions to lecture us all about “climate change.”

Witness excerpts from this fantastic BS article from Hollywood Reporter:

Ben Affleck raising awareness of the benefits of flying via private jets…

Ben Affleck co-founded the Eastern Congo Initiative in 2010 and has been using the organization to raise awareness of threatened natural resources in the region. According to its website, the initiative revolves around the philosophy that local, community-based approaches are essential to creating a sustainable and successful society in eastern Congo. In partnership with Matt Damon’s nonprofit, Water.org, Affleck used his organization to support clean water initiatives in Africa.

The “reality” of climate change doesn’t affect the size of Cameron’s Malibu home…

In a stance against President Trump’s remarks about climate change, director James Cameron targeted and rebutted the president’s claims in the documentary Not Reality TV. The film referenced Trump’s “reckless denial” of climate change and showed a clip of the GOP nominee calling global warming a “hoax.” James Cameron spoke to The Hollywood Reporter back in 2016 about why he felt that making this documentary was necessary. “We made this film to show the reality of climate change — how it’s directly affecting millions of people each day,” said Cameron. “As I’ve said before, to save our planet we need to mobilize like we did during World War II — the threat to our country and children is that severe.”

Dubbed “the greenest guy in Hollywood,” Leonardo DiCaprio has made significant strides in conservation. He has made investments in a vegan meat company and donated millions to help wildlife conservation and fight against climate change. DiCaprio has also invested in Allbirds, a sustainable shoe brand. For all of his efforts, the United Nations honored him with the title of Messenger of Peace on Climate Change.

Back in 2011, Emma Watson collaborated with designer Alberta Ferretti to create an eco-friendly clothing line, Pure Threads. Since then, Watson has been intentional about her involvement in the sustainable fashion movement. She launched the Instagram account @the_press_tour specifically to share about her outfits she wore on the press tour for Beauty and the Beast. In captions, the actress educated her followers on the brand’s history and shared about their environmentally friendly standards.

Hollyweird hypocrite Emma Thompson flies 5,400+ miles to protest climate change

Leonardo DiCaprio would be proud.

From The Sun: Emma Thompson was accused of hypocrisy last night after jetting 5,400-miles to take part in London’s eco-protest. The Oscar-winning actress flew back to London from LA to support the eco-warriors plotting to take down Heathrow today.

It is estimated that a single 5,456-mile transatlantic flight between Los Angeles and London Heathrow would run up a three tonne carbon footprint.

Thompson posted a video on social media to pledge her support to the group. She donned denim dungarees and a green sticker of the Extinction Rebellion symbol in front of an inflatable plastic elephant.

The Bafta-award winning actress explained that she would have joined the protest earlier but she had been busy celebrating her 60th birthday. She added: “I am so proud and thrilled to be part of Extinction Rebellion, a new movement that has come up behind all the old ones that I’ve been part of since I was 16 years old.

“A movement that’s telling it like it is and saying to government ‘look, there’s no more time. You can’t lie and you can’t stall any longer’.”

Many protesters involved in the march have demanded that the Government limit how many times individuals can fly each year.

A spokesperson for Dame Emma told the MailOnline: “She had to fly home at any rate, it was just earlier than she thought she could have. At the moment, that is our only available and practical means of trans-global travel.”

Ringleader of the movement Robin Boardman-Pattison declared during a television interview this week that flying “should only be used in emergencies” despite appearing to travel extensively.

An Extinction Rebellion spokesman said: “If Emma Thompson wants to come and help out, that’s great, she’s using her platform which is incredibly valuable to anyone. If she has to fly around the world like a climate lawyer might have to fly around the world, it seems counter-productive in the short term but we are looking at the bigger picture.”

Senate rejects AOC’s Green New Deal in 57-0 vote

Yesterday, March 26, 2019, the so-called Green New Deal, promoted by Demonrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) and 2020 presidential expirant Sen. Kamala “I-slept-my-way-into-politics” Harris (CA), failed to pass a procedural vote in the U.S. Senate.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) put the Deal to a vote to force Demonrats to take a public stand on the measure and so divide the Demon Party’s moderates and progressives. He tweeted:

”I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on the ‘Green New Deal’: a radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire US economy.”

The final vote was 57 against, and 0 for the plan:

  • Two “red state” Democrats voted no: Sens. Joe Manchin (WVa) and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ).
  • 43 Demonrats voted “present”.

Ocasio-Cortez predictably mouthed off, calling the vote a political stunt and a “disgrace”.

Green Hypocrite: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez travels in planes & gas-guzzling cars instead of mass transit

Like so many Democrats, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is a hypocrite.

AOC is a leading advocate of the Green New Deal that, in the name of climate change and saving the environment, aims to end America’s reliance on fossil fuels in 10 years, at a cost estimated by the American Action Forum to be $93 trillion.

Speaking of herself and her fellow millennials, AOC said: “We’re like, ‘The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change.’ And, like, this is the war; this is our World War II.”

She even questioned whether young people should have children, because “Our planet is going to face disaster if we don’t turn this ship around” and “the lives of children are going to be very difficult.”

AOC herself, however, does not practice what she preaches.

The New York Post reports that AOC was treated as a liberal savior at yesterday’s “inclusive” St. Pat’s for All parade:

  • Councilman Daniel Dromm (D-Queens) introduced her as “somebody who has been shaking up Washington, DC, the political world, and has been talking truth to power.”
  • City Comptroller Scott Stringer likened Ocasio-Cortez to his cousin, the late US Rep. Bella Abzug, saying that “when she [Abzug] got elected they said the same things about her and they tried to slow her down.”

Despite getting a hero’s welcome, AOC ducked out of the parade before the end and hopped into a chauffered white minivan at 48th Street and Skillman Avenue, a mere 5-minute walk from a subway station (at 46th and Bliss).

The 2016 white Chrysler Town & Country minivan gets an average of just 17 mpg in the city, according to the US Department of Energy.

A day ago, the New York Post reported on the reliance of AOC’s political campaign on gas-guzzling cars and planes, instead of public transit, even though a subway station was just a one-minute walk (138 feet) from her Elmhurst campaign office in Queens:

  • In all, AOC’s campaign spent $25,174.54 on 66 airline transactions, and $29,365.70 on emissions-spewing vehicles, including 1,049 transactions for Uber, Lyft, Juno and other car services, federal filings show. The campaign had 505 Uber expenses alone.
  • AOC’s campaign shelled out only $8,335.41 on 52 MetroCard (public transit) transactions.
  • AOC or her staff took Amtrak only 18 times, despite high-speed rail being the cornerstone of her Green New Deal.
  • In contrast, fellow freshman Rep. Max Rose (D-NY) — whose 11th district is more than twice the size of AOC’s, but has limited public transit options — listed only 329 transactions for car services, totaling $6,091.29.

Ocasio-Cortez: “Like, is it okay to still have children?”

What happened to my body, my choice?

From Fox News: Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said young people have to ask a “legitimate question” in the wake of climate change and mounting student loan debt: “Is it okay to still have children?”

In an Instagram Live video over the weekend, Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., welcomed supporters into her kitchen—and gave a “special hello to my haters”—while she made chili and poured herself a glass of white wine.

“Our planet is going to face disaster if we don’t turn this ship around,” she said, as she chopped sweet potatoes. “And so it’s basically like, there is a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult and it does lead, I think young people, to have a legitimate question. Ya know, should—is it okay to still have children?

She continued: “Not just financially because people are graduating with 20, 30, 100 thousand dollars of student loan debt so they can’t even afford to have kids in the house, but there’s also just this basic moral question, like, what do we do?”

“And even if you don’t have kids, there are still children here in the world and we have a moral obligation to them to leave a better world to them.”

Ocasio-Cortez answered questions from viewers while she continued to prepare her meal. “What would Trump put in chili? BOLOGNA!” she quipped. “He would put bologna in chili. Both because I think that’s what his taste palate is developed to, and for the obvious reason.”

But one of the serious questions was about her signature proposal in the House- the Green New Deal.

The whole premise of the Green New Deal, is that we’re screwed on climate. I’m sorry to break it to you,” she said. “When it comes to climate in particular, we’re actually screwed. There is a global threat to the planet.

She added: “At this point, we don’t even have to prove it. Just walk outside in the winter in a lot of places, and its, either way worse than you’re used to, or way warmer than you’re used to.”

“Hurricanes, storms, wildfires,” she said. “We are dying now.”

While the resolution itself would do little because it is non-binding, it is the first time the policy proposal has been formally outlined in Congress.

“If we called a vote on the Green New Deal, tomorrow or Tuesday when I got back to D.C., and it passed, NOTHING WOULD HAPPEN,” she stressed, seemingly downplaying the impact should it be passed. “Literally, nothing would happen because it is a resolution. It is a statement. Be it resolved. It is us agreeing to a statement. Not any binding course of action.”

The resolution says “a new national social, industrial and economic mobilization on a scale not seen since World War II and the New Deal” is an opportunity to tackle systemic injustices toward minority groups, create millions of high-wage jobs and “provide unprecedented levels of prosperity and economic security for all people of the United States.”

Its proposals include “net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers;” job creation; healthcare for all; infrastructure investment; guarantees of clean water, healthy food and sustainable environment; and a curiously undefined “access to nature.”

Beyond those broad proposals, the plan and accompanying documents from Ocasio-Cortez include a range of far-fetched goals — and drew swift scorn from Republicans and other critics. The Republican National Committee dubbed it a “socialist wish list” that would kill at least 1 million jobs and disrupt global trade — while costing trillions.
