Eric Holthaus: "Simply put: If Democrats win tonight, the effects will reverberate for centuries and millennia in the climate system. We must cut global emissions in half this decade. What happens in the next two years in the United States is enormously important."
"SEC.405. CLIMATE SECURITY ADVISORY COUNCIL. (1) STUDY REQUIRED. -- "The Director of National Intelligence, in coordination with the heads of other elements of the intelligence community determined appropriate by the Director, shall conduct a study on the effectiveness of the Climate Security Advisory Council as a potential model for future administrations."
Marc Morano comments: "The Great Reset/Green New Deal/Build Back Better are all using COVID and a 'climate emergency', to very clearly lay out your future. No private ownership of homes or cars or even Christmas trees. Air travel will be permitted only when it is 'morally justifiable'. The Great Reset has revealed the future it seeks and you are not free."
World Economic Forum Touts Christmas tree 'rental': Christmas trees are being rented over the festive period in a bid to stop millions from going to landfill.
The trees are taken home in a pot and returned in the same one. The farm then re-plants it until the following year.
96.5% of people say they are 'very' or 'extremely' concerned about 'climate change' impact on their potential offspring - The first-of-its-kind study found that 96.5 percent of people surveyed said they were “very” or “extremely” concerned about the impact of global warming on the well-being of their potential offspring, the Guardian said.
“I feel like I can’t in good conscience bring a child into this world and force them to try and survive what may be apocalyptic conditions,” a 27-year-old woman told researchers. Another participant in the study, published in the scientific journal Climatic Change, worried that future weather conditions would “rival world war one in its sheer terror.” In addition to those people who said they’d forgo reproduction, 6 percent said they felt bad about already having brought children into the world, according to the Guardian.
“I regret having my kids because I am terrified that they will be facing the end of the world due to climate change,” a 40-year-old mom said. The study, titled “Eco-reproductive concerns in the age of climate change,” involved 607 Americans between the ages of 27 and 45.
The North Face Fashion Brand Refuses To Serve Oil Firm: A Texas-based oil company that ordered jackets for its employees from The North Face was rejected because it was an oil firm, with its CEO pointing out the irony of such a decision. “They told us we did not meet their brand standards,” Adam Anderson, chief executive of Innovex Downhole Solutions, told CBS7. “We were separately informed that what that really meant is was that we were an oil and gas company.” The outdoor wear company said it did not want to support the oil and gas industry in the same way as it did not support the porn industry or Big Tobacco.
“The climate today is not safe,” said Gideon Futerman, the 17-year-old founder and president of Worldward, who lives in a suburb north of London. “Millions of people are suffering and millions more will.” By the time net-zero is achieved, he said, the climate will be considerably more dangerous. ...
“Restoration is about removing the CO2, which is causing these problems, and starting to reverse those issues,” said Futerman. ... Climate restoration, as Futerman defines it, has three components: reducing greenhouse gas emissions, actively removing carbon from the atmosphere to offset any remaining emissions, and then continuing to draw it down, so that the concentration in the atmosphere begins to decline, “restoring” an earlier version of the climate. In other words, Worldward — a portmanteau of “world” and “forward” or “onward” —wants to get to net-zero, and then keep going. ... The group does not advocate for a specific temperature goal or atmospheric concentration of carbon — Futerman said that’s a societal decision — but roughly, they want society to aim for somewhere close to pre-industrial levels.
France 24: "Global warming is threatening London's historic Highgate Cemetery, an overgrown oasis housing graves of notable figures from Karl Marx to pop star George Michael, its custodians say. Concerned at rampant fungi, freak storms and shifting graves, the cemetery's custodians are now seeking expert help to ensure its survival."
Winds have got stronger, too, Cano said, and warmer temperatures are causing fungi to thrive and trees to suffer "many more pests and diseases".
