Bloomberg News: This is only the beginning of what climate activists need to do in order to be effective, says Andreas Malm, associate professor of human ecology at Lund University and author of How to Blow Up a Pipeline. ... “The task for the climate movement is to make clear for people that building new pipelines, new gas terminals, opening new oil fields are acts of violence that need to be stopped — they kill people,” Malm says on Bloomberg Green’s Zero podcast. ... Malm: “We shouldn't engage in assassinations or terrorism, or use arms and things like that,” he says. “But until that line or boundary, we need virtually everything … all the way up to sabotage and property destruction.”
Daily Caller: Swedish eco-terrorism advocate Andreas Malm was featured in a New York Times guest opinion piece on Thursday where he advocated for climate activists to engage in “sabotage” to prevent the “breakdown” of the environment. Throughout his NYT essay, Malm, who is also an associate professor of human ecology at Sweden’s Lund University, criticized the climate activists who threw soup on a famous Van Gogh painting in London to protest fossil fuel production as their actions were not “gritty” enough. Malm argues that engaging in eco-terrorism is the most productive and logical form of climate activism and is also the author of the nonfiction book, How to Blow Up a Pipeline: Learning to Fight in a World on Fire. ... “As a rule, I tend to think sabotage is most effective when it is precise and gritty,” Malm wrote.
Great Reset By Marc Morano – Chapter 12 Excerpt: ‘COVID Lockdowns Morph to Climate Lockdowns’ - “We Must Embrace . . . Ecological Leninism” - In 2020 Lund University professor Andreas Malm urged, “We must find a way of turning the environmental crisis into a crisis for fossil capital itself.” Malm pointed to Lenin as the model. “The whole strategic direction of Lenin after 1914 was to turn World War I into a fatal blow against capitalism. This is precisely the same strategic orientation we must embrace today—and this is what I mean by ecological Leninism.”
Alberta Premier Jason Kenny: “If President Biden had not vetoed Keystone XL project, it would be done later this year – 840,000 barrels of democratic energy that could have displaced the 600,000 plus barrels of Russian conflict oil that’s filled with the blood of Ukrainians.”
Marc Morano: "Russia gets 40% of its federal budget from oil and gas. In the United States, next to Canada and Mexico, guess who the third-largest supplier of oil is? Russia. It's over 600,000 barrels a day from Russia to the United States. Last year the U.S. hit an 11 year high of Russian oil imports. At the same time, the Biden administration is begging OPEC to increase oil production. ... And our reliance on China for rare earth mining for solar and wind and electric car batteries is going through the roof and China controls by some estimates 80 to 90% of the world capacity for that for this rare earth mining. ... The reality is we need fossil fuels. We need them now. And Biden needs to send a signal to the marketplace that America is open for business when it comes to oil, gas, and fossil fuels."
CNN opinion article by climate activist Paul Hockenos: "The pipeline, which would have constituted Europe's largest fossil fuel project, flew in the face of the 2015 UN Paris accord by ignoring Europe's commitment to lower greenhouse emissions and keep global temperatures from rising less than 1.5 degrees Celsius. ...
Europeans have to realize that they are living in precarious, crisis-fraught times. Ramped up green transformation policies are required now for two reasons: to break free of Putin's energy stranglehold on Europe and meet global climate goals to keep our planet livable.
Daily Wire: Cricket powder will now be permitted in a number of food products, such as multigrain bread, crackers, cereal bars, biscuits, beer-like beverages, chocolates, sauces, whey powder, soups, and other items “intended for the general population,” according to the new regulation. Cricket One, a company that asserts that the insects are “nutritionally more efficient” and serve as a more reliable “source of alternative protein” than livestock, submitted the original application.
The New York Allergy and Sinus Centers has nevertheless found that “several allergic reactions to crickets” have been reported in the past two years. Individuals allergic to shellfish such as shrimp, crabs, and lobsters “may develop an allergy to crickets” because the species share many of the same proteins. ... Proposals for the increased consumption of crickets and other insects occur as many policymakers voice concern about the impact of meat production on climate change.
