CNN: "What do you say to those families that say, 'listen, we can't afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years?’"
BIDEN ADVISOR BRIAN DEESE: "This is about the future of the Liberal World Order and we have to stand firm."
Video of Biden Adviser Defending 'Liberal World Order' Viewed Over 1M Times - According to World101, an online course from the Council on Foreign Relations think tank, the "liberal world order" refers to a "series of international organizations and agreements to promote global cooperation on issues including security, trade, health, and monetary policy." It was created by world leaders in the wake of World War II in an effort to prevent the world from devolving into such violence again, and the U.S. has "championed" the system since, according to the explainer.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren: "Our planet is on fire, and this extremist Supreme Court has destroyed the federal government’s ability to fight back. This radical Supreme Court is increasingly facing a legitimacy crisis, and we can't let them have the last word."
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.
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.
Newsbusters: Michael Mann went full Doomsday prophet, “Rapid and narrow. We have less than a decade now to bring carbon emissions down globally by 50% if we are to remain on a path that keeps warming below that, sort of, catastrophic one-and-a-half degree Celsius, three degree Fahrenheit warming of the planet where the things that we’re starting to see now become much worse and we get extremes that we haven't seen before and so that’s not someplace we want—we want-- to go.”
Mann's Magic Science: Don't like the weather or climate?! Have Congress pass new legislation to change it!
Michael Mann: "We want to prevent the problem from getting worse and that means decarbonizing our economy rapidly. That means we need legislation and there’s still an opportunity to pass climate legislation this term in Congress, if we can, you know, get a few stragglers to get behind some—some--, you know, basic policies that would incentivize renewable energy that would begin to defund infrastructure for fossil fuels.”
Counter Signal: “Everyone now faces a health risk,” official Fabienne Buccio told France Bleu radio, after announcing the regional restrictions around Bordeaux. Officials in France banned people from attending concerts, outdoor gatherings, and events due to safety concerns over a heatwave. ... Outdoor events – including, ironically, annual ‘Resistance’ celebrations – are banned until the officials declare the heatwave is over. They’re even restricting some indoor events that don’t have air conditioning. ... Nonetheless, rather than let people take responsibility for themselves – to hydrate or stay home – French officials are comfortable deciding for them.
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).
Steve Milloy: Today’s elevation is not all that different from the low points of 1956 and 1965 (about 1,090 feet, shown in first graph), especially when you consider the increases in water use and human management of reservoir levels over time. No doubt that drought is affecting Lake Mead. But Western drought is natural (the region is a desert, after all), and Lake Mead was comparably low more than 100 ppm CO2 ago.
Bill Gates, Sir Richard Branson, Hollywood actors, venture capitalists — they’re all pushing lab-grown meat as the solution to world hunger and environmental sustainability, but scientists last week told a panel of experts they have serious concerns about the product’s safety.
