Climate Depot Note: This is what passes as 'journalism' with much of the media today. Scott Waldman, E&E News 'reporter's' opening line in an allegedly straight news article. Why does Scott Waldman write in editorial style instead of news-writing style? Does Waldman not realize that it is more effective to remove the reporter's bias from the news article?
Waldman's original sentence: "A climate denier working under the purview of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy is attempting to publish cherry-picked and inaccurate research so that it can be permanently archived as a government record."
An example of how Waldman could have written the opening line if he cared about objective journalism: (changes in red): "A scientist who dissents from the UN IPCC's climate claims working under the purview of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy is attempting to publish studies which critics claim are cherry-picked and inaccurate research so that it can be permanently archived as a government record."
Waldman: "Legates is also giving false climate views a different imprimatur: the seal of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy."
If Waldman were an unbiased reporter (changes in red): "Legates is also giving what many other scientists say are false climate views a different imprimatur: the seal of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy."
"Traitors like you and your friends who backed Trump and his goons attacking the Capital are going on the no-fly list anyhow, Halperin wrote to Morano on Twitter.
Morano replied: "I would not be surprised if you are correct. Should I have my utilities shut off and driver's license revoked as well for supporting Trump?" Morano added: "Put me on a no-fly list? Will it matter? If Bill Gates gets his way 99.99 % of humanity will be on no-fly list since all the commercial airlines will have been bankrupted and out of business."
Eric Holthaus: "Our country, and our nation, are in a climate emergency...This country was founded on the exploitation and extermination of non-white people who lived together with Nature, not in opposition to it. Over the past five hundred of years, that racist underpinning has continued to escalate the climate emergency. If we don’t acknowledge the racist roots of opposition to climate action, the world is going to keep spiraling towards chaos. It’s bad now. But it will get much, much worse."
In confronting climate change, Biden won’t have a day to waste: “There’s a lot he can do quite quickly, but what he can do quickly is not nearly enough,” one ally says
Warmist Sen. Whitehouse disses Obama's climate legacy!
Despite President Barack Obama’s support for climate action, said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.), it involved nowhere near the political determination required to curb climate change.
“After eight years, we were left with nothing. No statute, no regulation, no treaty,” Whitehouse said. “A whole different order of magnitude of seriousness and determination is required. The placid and often disinterested approach of those days is no longer an option.”
John Kerry: "I can tell you, we’re not getting done even what we promised in Paris.”
“And even if we did everything that was promised in Paris, the earth’s temperature’s still going to rise to 3.7 degrees Fahrenheit [sic],” Kerry continued. “But because we’re not doing anything, we’re actually heading to [a rise of] 4.1, 4.5 degrees today. It’s beyond catastrophic.”
Time Mag: Global food production accounts for one-third of all greenhouse-gas emissions, according to a comprehensive study published this year in the journal Nature Food that looked at every aspect of food production from transportation to packaging. Meat production alone makes up nearly 60% of that total. The study underscores the growing consensus that in order to stave off the worst impacts of climate change, the world needs a dramatic rethinking of how food is produced and consumed...
Increasingly, companies and scientists are viewing insects as an environmentally sustainable alternative source of protein. Crickets, grasshoppers and beetles are already commercially produced and processed for human and animal consumption. Ynsect, a 10-year-old French company, is focused on mealworms, the larval stage of beetles.
Ynsect co-founder and CEO Antoine Hubert: "We are not far from reaching tipping points where then things get worse and it cascades and waterfalls—you can’t stop it anymore. Time is very critical...There is a huge need to reduce our consumption of beef. We should keep beef consumption, grazing, on a smaller scale with high levels of fresh products. But everything that is a processed meat should be 100% replaced at some point by alternatives. Insects will be a part of the answer."
