Europe tried it green and failed: ‘The architect of the European Green Deal has resigned, & next year’s EU elections are announcing a shift away from environmentalist ideas”
https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/europe-tried-it-green-and-failed by Bill Wirtz Nearly 300 votes against, only 207 in favor: Those were the final results of a vote in the European Parliament on the “Sustainable Use of Pesticides” directive, the landmark legislation of the European Union’s agriculture reforms.

European Parliament Rejects Landmark Legislation in the EU’s Agriculture Reforms – Climate Alarmism Is Losing Ground as Economic Situation Deteriorates
https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2023/12/european-parliament-rejects-landmark-legislation-eus-agriculture-reforms/ By Paul Serran The European Green Deal is under attack. As we continue to follow the relentless news cycle coming from Europe, we can identify two major trends that are in play both inside the countries and also in Pan-European terms. The first, of course, is the rejection of unchecked mass migration. And the […]

Watch: Catholic nun tackles an environmental activist trying to stop construction of a religious center in France
Via France 3:
“I didn’t expect that ,” expressed Sylvain Hérenguel, co-president of the association for the future of the Bourges valley. “ I expected the nuns to be a little reasonable for the public order . The problem is that the religious decided to resort to violence. I was attacked 3 times by five people, who snatched me, who wanted to throw me out. There, They decided to protect the site with their actions and their bodies ,” he added.
Calm then returned. However, the nuns continue to surround, on the basis of a human chain, the backhoe loader supposed to carry out the work.
“Prevent the destruction of a rare plant”: “They do not have authorization to destroy the habitats of protected species ,” denounces the head of Ami.es de la Bourges…Generally speaking, opponents fear the deterioration of the site along the river and the nuisance generated by the massive arrival of pilgrims.
Watch: Morano on Fox & Friends on movement to restrict airline travel to four flights per person per lifetime – ‘You will go nowhere & be happy’
Joey Jones: The poll shows 41% of the French population thinks travelers should restrict airline travel to only four times in their entire life. Climate Depot publisher Marc Morano joins us now to react mark that is a staggering number. Help us out.
Marc Morano: “Back in May, the French government mandated flights of two and a half hours or less be canceled to save the climate. So this is what the French public has been getting indoctrinated in, that flying is evil. They believe we’re in a climate emergency…The EU is looking at flight bans for when you take instead take a train ride that takes under six hours. Bloomberg News said cheap airline flights are now a thing of the past due to ‘climate compliance’ costs. This is truly, ‘You will go nowhere and be happy’. The public is being severely indoctrinated in this, and they’re told that the earth can’t handle it unless we radically change our lives. And most of these decisions are being imposed on us: the ban on gas-powered cars, the agricultural restrictions, the meat restrictions, flight bans. This is our world if we allow it. …
Morano: This isn’t unusual, in a climate emergency declaration which Joe Biden wants to do, and NBC News said about three weeks ago would give him the same powers as 911 Emergency executive powers and COVID emergency powers that would literally give the climate activists the ability to tell you you can’t fly unless you have a ‘morally justifiable’ reason — was the exact phrase — you can’t fly, and they’re taking away our cars as well rationing vehicles by banning it.”
NetZero U-Turns Gives Hope to Taxpayers while Clarity on Reduced Climate Risk Relieves Eco-Anxiety says Friends of Science
https://www.prweb.com/releases/netzero-u-turns-gives-hope-to-taxpayers-while-clarity-on-reduced-climate-risk-relieves-eco-anxiety-says-friends-of-science-301941100.html BY Friends of Science Society In the UK, Sweden and Germany, governments are making a U-turn from stringent NetZero policies as taxpayers clamor for relief, says Friends of Science Society. As policymakers and the public understand that an implausible scenario (RCP8.5) drove the fear of a climate emergency, but is now rejected, people are feeling relieved of […]
https://www.cfact.org/2023/09/24/rishi-sunak-speaks-sense-on-net-zero/?mc_cid=5d7249769e By Rupert Darwall Britain’s prime minister, Rishi Sunak, was denounced before he’d uttered a word on net zero ahead of his short remarks on Wednesday. Lord Deben, the recently departed chair of the statutory Climate Change Committee, took to the airwaves to accuse the government of stupidity. Lord Zac Goldsmith, son of the billionaire Sir James Goldsmith, who resigned […]
Watch: Morano on Fox celebrates end to ‘climate emergency’ — IF — we spent just $75 trillion! – ‘We should all have little party hats & confetti. We’re $75 trillion dollars away from not hearing about climate change nonsense’
Plus: Morano interprets AOC’s word salad on why she bought a non-union EV
Morano: If you actually parse what AOC said, which I admit is painful to actually do — she’s basically saying before the vaccine, we had stay-at-home orders, so they didn’t need to go anywhere. So, therefore, an EV fit the bill because I guess the range was so limited. It didn’t matter because she then immediately said well, now they’re ranges better.
This is the controlled demolition of the American auto unions and the American automobile industry. These EV mandates are coming from California, coming from Joe Biden’s EPA, and yet, they’re acting as though they’re the friends of the union. A million people make non electric cars. Just about 40% of those or 400,000 workers, could lose their job if these EV mandates actually went through.
Morano: The United Nations claims that in order to meet Net Zero, you have to keep the temperatures within 1.5 degrees Celsius. We now know from the Climategate scandal that the entire premise of Net Zero was, quote, ‘pulled from thin air’; all of these temperature goals are political statements, and they have no idea how to achieve any temperature goals.
The $75 trillion dollars is similar to estimates for the UN Paris Agreement, which would probably a little bit cheaper, and the Green New Deal, which was a little bit cheaper than these estimates.
The idea is that if we spend enough money, we can finally end the climate emergency. We should all have little party hats and confetti and be throwing it. We’re $75 trillion dollars away from not hearing about climate change nonsense. There won’t be a climate emergency anymore. All we have to do is write this check, and they’ll all go away. Of course, that won’t happen. There are no criteria to end this. This is only a down payment in their minds, $75 trillion dollars.
UK Telegraph: The French plan to save the planet? Stop poorer people flying – Seeking ‘a minimum price for airfares within the EU in a bid to reduce the number of flights’ to reduce CO2 emissions
UK Telegraph: The French plan to save the planet? Stop poorer people flying – Minimum prices for air tickets, proposed by France, will hurt the less well off without doing anything to reduce the number of flights
Cheap deals might be a thing of the past. France is seeking support from other European Union countries for a minimum price for airfares within the EU in a bid to reduce the number of flights in Europe and reduce the aviation sector’s CO2 emissions. Transport Minister Clement Beaune wants to “open the debate on the fair social and environmental price of a flight ticket”. The Netherlands and Belgium support the idea in principle. …
France has already banned domestic flights for journeys that are possible in less than two-and-a-half hours by train. The Dutch government is going ahead with plans to cap the number of flights at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport next year, pending EU approval, in a bid to reduce noise pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.

‘Red tape all over the place’: German Finance Minister calls on European Union to pause Net Zero regulations
German Finance Minister Christian Lindner slammed politicians in Brussels for seeking to enact stricter clean energy rules for buildings, warning that such plans could spark a dangerous voter backlash and fuel the rise of the far right.
Speaking to POLITICO during an interview in the garden of the finance ministry in Berlin on Monday, Lindner argued that Europeans are suffering from overregulation — or “red tape all over the place.” He urged European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen to “pause” new EU legislation aimed at curtailing greenhouse gas emissions during a time of economic stagnation wrought in part by high energy costs.
