Hateful Eight producer Harvey Weinstein further confirmed rumors about the film’s fraught weather conditions, saying, “Anyone who doesn’t believe in climate control or climate change should be on our set.”
Film productions starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Channing Tatum, Jennifer Lawrence, and Jake Gyllenhaal were recently besieged by unpredictable and expensive weather obstacles.
According to social activist and best-selling author Naomi Klein, climate change isn’t just destroying our planet — it’s making racism worse, too... “It’s clear that as sea levels rise that this mean streak and open racism is going to become more extreme – climate change is an accelerant to all those other issues,” she continued. Yes — “clear.” The idea that racism rises with the sea is just so “clear” that no further evidence or explanation is needed. Climate change is making people more mean, and that is just a fact.
During the ceremony raising the American flag over the newly opened U.S. embassy in Cuba, Secretary of State John Kerry encouraged the Castro brothers and the Cuban people to join the fight against climate change. “After all we are neighbors, and neighbors will always have much to discuss,” Kerry said, pointing to serious, tough, complex issues like protecting the marine environment and the fight against climate change.
A revenue-neutral carbon tax, one that does not support other programs and instead goes back to households, could fix that distortion, he and others argue. "The question is not, 'Is there going to be a tax on carbon?' It's, 'Do you want a tax that you have a voice in and control, or do you want to keep writing checks after disasters that you have no control over?'" says retired Rear Admiral David Titley, who has advised some of the GOP presidential candidates and directs the Center for Solutions to Weather and Climate Risk at Penn State University. "That $60 billion relief bill for Hurricane Sandy that passed very quickly through a Republican-led House, did you get a vote on that tax? Because that's a tax."
Climate Depot Response: So Rear Admiral Titley is claiming that a 'carbon tax' or EPA regs or UN treaties would have made Sandy less powerful and thus require less relief funds?'
One kid says that his family’s farm has been damaged by drought and wildfire. Another says that his childhood home has been devalued by rising sea levels. A third alleges an assault on his whole culture as man-made climate change upends the natural world. These and 18 other “youth plaintiffs” (ages 8 to 19) sued the federal government on Wednesday, walking a first-of-its-kind constitutional claim up the courthouse steps in Eugene, Oregon. The kids argue that inaction on climate change is a violation of their right to life, liberty and property. And they demand that President Obama, seven federal departments and the Environmental Protection Agency act immediately to preserve the climate for “future generations.”
The people that just accidentally released millions of gallons of toxic materials into a Colorado River have come up with another brilliant plan to combat global warming... Obama Administration has awarded $8 Million in government grants to nine universities to study the impact that climate change has on indoor air quality. The EPA defends the move by claiming that climate change's effects on indoor air pollutants that lead to asthma, as well as mold and mildew, aren't well understood. However, as with everything negative that occurs in the world, the Obama Administration is assuming that global warming probably has something to do with it.
