‘Climate Change’ To Get Yet Another Image Makeover

If you do a ‘net search, you’ll find millions and millions of hits regarding ‘climate change’ getting an image makeover or something similar. Why? Because, after all these years of spreading awareness, the Cult is dying off, rather than growing. The have to keep pushing ever-more scary prognostications of doom while attempting to indoctrinate kids, using the power of the state. They cannot produce actual proof, so, hey, makeover time!

Climate change to get an image revamp

What does climate change look like?

For many people, the first – or perhaps only – image that comes to mind is of smokestacks, or polar bears perched on ice floes.

“If you go to Google and click on climate change images, you have to go a long way before you hit many images of people,” Adam Corner, research director at Climate Outreach, an Oxford-based think-tank that aims to boost public engagement on climate change, says.

But climate change already is affecting billions of people around the world, from farmers in Zimbabwe experimenting with new crops to battle drought to grandmothers in India who earn cash selling solar home lighting systems, or children coping with a longer allergy season.

Getting more of those people-focused images into the media, into NGO campaigns and into other public communications could help more people identify with the problem, see the opportunities and understand the need for action, Corner said.

So, what to do?

In an effort to widen that narrow view, Corner’s organisation has launched a new portal for climate change images.

Inspired by Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg’s Lean In effort – which has worked to make sure online searches for images of women offer up more than just lingerie models – the Climate Visuals portal showcases a diverse range of climate change photographs drawn from stock photo agencies.

Huh. So, nothing about getting those who believe that the current warm period is mostly/solely caused by mankind to give up their own use of fossil fuels, make their lives carbon neutral, live in itty bitty homes (nothing against them, I love those tiny house shows, especially the one on FYI), do without AC, and so forth? It’s almost like this is a scam, like you see with Scientology.

Australia Puts Illegal Aliens On Notice: Prove You’re A Legitimate Refugee

Reading the news, one would think that the only nation in the world with a problem with illegal aliens is America. In fact, many other nations, mostly 1st World ones, have issues, and most have more serious laws and enforcement than America. Try and stay illegally in Mexico? You’re in for a rough ride. If you’re lucky, they’ll just deport you. If not, you could end up in one of their horrendous jails.

Australia has long been restrictive on who is allowed to come to their nation, and have had a short fuse for those who unlawfully present. Now

(Daily Caller) Australia has given illegal immigrants until Oct. 1 to prove they are legitimate refugees or face deportation from the country.

Minister for Immigration and Border Protection Peter Dutton announced a crackdown Sunday on “fake refugees” who arrived illegally by boat. Dutton said 7,500 out of the 50,000 people who have arrived by boat in recent years refused to provide any documents of their identity.

“Those people who are fake refugees – people who are refusing to provide detail about their claim of protection … we are going to set a deadline for those people, and we have set that deadline for the end of this year in October,” Dutton said, according to 9 News.

Dutton said “fake refugees” cost taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars each year — money he would rather spend elsewhere.

“This is a very serious situation that’s costing Australian taxpayers hundreds of millions dollars a year — money that could be spent on education, on health, on police, on other services in the community,” he said. “If people think they can rip the Australian taxpayer off, if people think that they can con the Australian taxpayer, then I’m sorry, the game’s up.”

Every nation has the right to enact immigration policies that make the country better and to safeguard its citizens. In fact, governments have a duty to do so. Being compassionate should start with the legal citizens of a nation first. What we’ve seen all too often over the past decade(s) is people coming to nations, both legally and illegally, who want nothing to do with assimilating into those countries, while demanding that the nations change for them. Demands that the government give them food, money, healthcare, shelter, education, and so much more. There doesn’t seem to be much of a “thank you.”

Australia is also changing their legal work visas to put Australian workers first.

The Nation Thinks They Find The Way To Impeach Trump, And It Has Nothing To Do With Russia

It’s an interesting debate, one which The Nation writer John Nichols, nor any other TN writer forgot to make about Obama

Donald Trump Committed Another Impeachable Offense This Week

President Donald Trump committed an impeachable offense this week, but you likely haven’t heard about it on cable news.

It did not involve firing the director of the FBI, nor conspiring with the attorney general to facilitate the firing that even some Republicans recognized as a potential obstruction of justice, nor bragging to the Russians about how “pressure” was “taken off” by that firing, nor any of the other acts of presidential maladministration that scream out for an accountability moment.

Those developments may have gotten the impeachment clock ticking faster, as Wisconsin Congressman Mark Pocan suggested. But there was another event—nothing to do with Russia—that should have set off the alarm: Donald Trump’s refusal to respect the requirements that the US Constitution places on presidents when it comes to matters of war and peace.

On Wednesday, US forces carried out more unauthorized air strikes on pro-government forces in Syria. Though the Constitution explicitly states that the legislative branch, not the executive, has the power to initiate new military actions, Trump has steered the United States deeper into the Syrian conflict.

Got that? Trump was doing the same thing as Obama, albeit with more force, yet, now this means impeachment.

Where was he when Obama was launching air strikes? Not just in Syria, but all over the Middle East and Northern Africa? Even if we discount that Trump has the ability to do this under the post 9/11 authorization, which some would say does apply because Syria is listed as a state sponsor of terrorism, there is still the War Powers Act in play.

Lieu is not alone in expressing concern about this undeclared war making. After Trump ordered military strikes on Syria in April, Congressional Progressive Caucus leaders Raúl Grijalva, Keith Ellison, and Mark Pocan released this statement:

Nothing in the statement, which you can read at The Nation, mentions impeachment, just some whining by Democrats. But, one has to wonder where all these folks were when Obama unilaterally launched an air war against Libya, which has turned the rogue nation from a retired terrorism player to a hotbed of ISIS and Islamic radicalism. Obama wasn’t even in the U.S when he started the actions. And, even some Leftists stated that this was illegal, yet, no one at The Nation or in Progressive World was calling for impeachment.

The commentariat can and will debate when a president’s refusal to seek congressional authorization for military action becomes impeachable. (There will even be attempts by the apologists for presidential overreach to make convoluted claims about how past authorizations of the use of military force somehow apply to every new conflict.) But, in Trump’s case, there is no evidence to suggest that he will respect the requirements of the Constitution. As such, an article of impeachment is justified.

Of course, impeachment is a political process rather than a legal one….

Boom, stop right there. This is all about politics, about Democrats being utterly unhinged by Trump winning the election per the Constitutional requirements (funny how they don’t like that part of the Constitution) and just can’t move on. Rather than putting forth policies which excite the voting public, asking for votes, working to regain the population segments they lost, they’d rather devolve into insanity.

There Are Two Words That Can Solve Hotcoldwetdry Or Something

Can you guess what they are? It should be easy, as it’s a main thing the Cult of Climastrology pushes

These Two Words Can Solve the Climate Crisis

If you want to see a solution to the climate crisis in your lifetime, they might be the two most important words you hear this year: carbon pricing.

Sure, the crisis is a complex challenge with no one solution. But while carbon pricing may not be a silver bullet, it’s one we’re going to need in the chamber—and critically, support is growing all along the political spectrum right when we need it.

Funny how one of their main solutions always boils down to “take money from citizens and private entities and put it in the hands of government, because government is oh so trustable, eh?” And they want carbon taxes, emissions trading schemes, fuel taxes, and so forth.

I have a few words for them. Practice what you preach. Walk the talk. Stop using fossil fuels. Don’t have kids. Attend a cult exit counseling. And two words, get deprogrammed.

Trump Attempts To Galvanize Muslims To Fight Extremists Islam

While Mr. Obama used his first speech in the Middle East to essentially apologize for America and 1st World nations and avoid mentioning the extremism that was and still is growing within Islam, to blast Israel and coddle Palestinians, all the things that make Leftist knees go weak (it wasn’t all bad, he did yammer about women’s rights, something sorely lacking in the Islamic world. Of course, he then scolded people for complaining about the repressive dictates of the Islamic dress code for women), Trump is going to reportedly use his speech to call for something different

Trump aims to unite against terrorism in speech before Muslim leaders

President Donald Trump, in a high-profile speech Sunday, will look to set the US and himself on new footing with the 1.6 billion Muslims worldwide who have heard much of the President’s Islamophobic comments on the campaign trail and little in the way of outreach.

But the main objective of Trump’s address will be to galvanize the Muslim world into confronting the radical Islamist ideology that birthed terrorist groups like ISIS, which Trump has vowed to destroy.

“Our goal is a coalition of nations who share the aim of stamping out extremism and providing our children a hopeful future that does honor to God … Every time a terrorist murders an innocent person, and falsely invokes the name of God, it should be an insult to every person of faith,” Trump will say, according to excerpts of his speech.

“This is not a battle between different faiths, different sects, or different civilizations. This is a battle between barbaric criminals who seek to obliterate human life, and decent people of all religions who seek to protect it. This is a battle between good and evil,” Trump will say. “That means honestly confronting the crisis of Islamist extremism and the Islamist terror groups it inspires.”

We can certainly expect that there will be some softening, such as we see in the “falsely invokes the name of God” bit (which probably will end up being Allah in the speech, but, hey, we know CNN and other Leftist outlets love replace one word with the other). The problem here is that Mr. Trump is directly butting heads with what has been growing for decades, the notion of hardcore, repressive, medieval Islam. He’s going against what is being taught in Islamic schools and in mosques. Fathers teaching sons and daughters Islamism. Mothers obeying. And it starts with little things, which seem perfectly OK to so many Muslims. And it has spread throughout the Islamic world.

But, this seems to be aimed more at getting the Middle East nations to Do Something about rising Islamism and terrorism. Will it work? Well, Trump’s off to a good start

(Washington Post) President Trump and the leaders of six Persian Gulf states joined forces here Sunday to counter global terrorism, reaching an agreement to crack down on terror financing, including the prosecution of individuals who continue sending money to militants.

The accord came during a series of meetings Trump held with several of his Middle Eastern counterparts on the second day of his first foreign trip, as he sought to strengthen U.S. alliances in the region and isolate the Islamic State and other extremist forces.

A centerpiece of Trump’s morning talks in Riyadh was a memorandum of understanding between the United States and the Gulf Cooperation Council, which includes Saudi Arabia as well as Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. The agreement includes the creation of a center in Riyadh to fight extremism.

Instead of going on an Apology Tour like Obama, Trump’s looking to actually work towards something. How much will this help? There’s the question that will be answered over time.

Good News: Arctic Doom Pushed Off Till 2040

Isn’t funny how the Doomy Goal Posts Of Doom are constantly moved? Now we have the World Economic Forum, a hotbed of Warmists and extreme Socialists who love to redistribute Other People’s money making a prognostication

The Arctic is now expected to be ice-free by 2040

The last piece of summer sea-ice in the Arctic is expected to melt away in just 23 years, three decades earlier than previously expected.

Scientists now believe that the summer of 2040 will see the end of the frozen north pole after a rapid shrinking of the ice coverage in recent years, according to a report from the Arctic Council.

Seriously, they just can’t help themselves with their prognostications. And, let’s see, from Watts Up With That?

  • 101. June 2008, Ted Alvarez, Backpacker Magazine Blogs: “you could potentially sail, kayak, or even swim to the North Pole by the end of the summer. Climate scientists say that the Arctic ice…is currently on track to melt sometime in 2008.”
  • 106. June 8, 1972, Christian Science Monitor: “Arctic specialist Bernt Balchen says a general warming trend over the North Pole is melting the polar ice cap and may produce an ice-free Arctic Ocean by the year 2000.”
  • 6. “In summer under certain conditions the scientists reckon with a complete melting of the Arctic sea ice. For Europe we expect an increase in drier and warmer summers. Winters on the other hand will be warmer and wetter.” Erich Roeckner, Max Planck Institute, Hamburg, 29 Sept 2005.

And then you had the prediction that 2016 would be ice free. And next year or the year after (2017 or 2018). And so many more, including Gore’s prediction which failed. So, of course, now, after they’ve all been spectacularly wrong, they’re pushing their crystal ball reading out further.
