Australian scientists incubated eggs in tanks heated to simulate temperature changes at the end of the century. They found half died within a month, and those who survived became 'right handed', preferring to swim to the right, a process known as lateralization.
The premier of China’s State Council, Li Keqiang, “urged” energy officials to ramp up coal production this week to stave off electricity blackouts across several Chinese provinces experiencing record power usage during a regional heatwave, the U.K.’s Guardian newspaper.
Bloomberg News: "Pledge to end public financing of such fuels came recently." - Germany is pushing for Group of Seven nations to walk back a commitment that would halt the financing of overseas fossil fuel projects by the end of the year, according to people familiar with the matter. That would be a major reversal on tackling climate change as Russia’s war in Ukraine upends access to energy supplies. ...
A G-7 shift from a commitment initiated last year and firmed up in May would be a u-turn in global efforts to fight climate change. It would make it harder to rally the rest of the world around more stringent targets and direct investments toward cleaner sources of energy. It would also go against International Energy Agency advice that no new oil and gas projects should be developed if the world is to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
The Navy next week will host an open-source table-top wargame to experiment with how climate change could affect a future conflict, a service official said today. ... Each military service now has a chief sustainability officer in an effort to follow President Joe Biden’s executive order on sustainability.
The purpose of the June 29 exercise is “to come together and really think about and experience what it means to operate in a climate-impacted environment,” Navy assistant secretary for energy, installations and environment Meredith Berger said.
Epoch Times: Marc Morano is the publisher of the Climate Depot website and author of the book “Green Fraud.” He told Epoch Times that, “The climate activists are actively preventing the Biden administration from achieving the so-called ‘climate goals’ of renewable energy by hampering domestic energy exploration for vital supplies.” ... “In short, this means that instead of the U.S. extracting, drilling, or mining for key energy supplies, we are going to outsource it to China and Russia, and other nations. The U.S. has the highest environmental standards in the world and yet by heavily restricting our rare earth mining, we are guaranteeing more imports from China and other nations with much more lax environmental regulations,” Morano said.
“The climate agenda has translated into the U.S. giving up our previous energy dominance in exchange for more dependence on rogue countries for key energy components.”

Morano: "You can go back to the words of Vladimir Lenin in Tsarist Russia, 'The worse the better." Those were the words attributed to Vladimir Lenin and the idea for any revolutionary who wants to seek massive and quick change in society, revolutionary change. The idea for revolutionaries is to make it so bad that they seek to collapse the current system and then instill emergencies which gives them more power, which then allows them to implement their policies.
That's literally what we are seeing in America right now from inflation to spending to debt to supply chain to energy costs to shortages to blackouts. All of this is designed to put America on its knees so that government can save us and we'll be more reliant on government. That is, in a nutshell, what the climate agenda is about. That is, in a nutshell, what the Great Reset is about. You're going to turn your life over to more unelected bureaucrats because they're going to save us from the calamity they created."
Heat-trapping carbon dioxide emissions from making cement, a less talked about but major source of carbon pollution, have doubled in the last 20 years, new global data shows.
In 2021, worldwide emissions from making cement for buildings, roads and other infrastructure hit nearly 2.9 billion tons (2.6 billion metric tons) of carbon dioxide, which is more than 7% of the global carbon emissions, according to emissions scientist Robbie Andrew of Norway’s CICERO Center for International Climate Research and the Global Carbon Project.
Washington Post: The administration’s environmental priorities — as well as rising public and corporate concern about climate change — would make many refineries obsolete in the not-too-distant future. Building and upgrading the mammoth structures is a messy, expensive undertaking that can drag on longer than a decade, strain the finances of even the biggest fossil fuel giants and run the risk of getting abandoned before that investment is returned. … The last major refinery to come online in the United States, in 1977, is the one owned by Marathon Oil in Garyville, La. It is capable of pumping out 578,000 barrels per day. Since it opened, more than half the refineries in the United States have closed.
ABC News Australia:Studies suggest wind turbine waste could end up in landfill by the end of the decade
Wind turbines have a life span of 10 to 20 years
Energy companies in Denmark have turned their old turbines into bus shelters and playgrounds ...
Researchers from the University of South Australia are urging renewable energy companies in the state to come up with an end-of-life plan for their ageing wind turbines. A study led by Professor Peter Majewski indicated that tens of thousands of old turbines could end up in landfill by the end of the decade. Worldwide, there could be more than 40 million tonnes of blade waste in landfills by 2050. Wind turbines have life span of 10 to 20 years and are expensive to break down due to their size and the fact they are made from a mixture of composite materials including glass fibre, carbon fibre, polyester and epoxy resins.
This climate video checks off just about every identity politics box: It's got climate change, animal activism, a drag performer, LGBTQ 'Pride' and, yes, even "sustainability" (the bird costume was made using black walnuts and marigolds).
