Climate Today: Concerts, Private Jets, $8 Million Grants

Who’s excited for yet another “global concert” to spread awareness about ‘climate change’?

Lenny Kravitz, Billie Eilish set for Global Citizen’s ‘Power Our Planet’ show for climate financing

Music superstars Lenny Kravitz, Billie Eilish and H.E.R. will team with advocacy nonprofit Global Citizen for a free concert in front of the Eiffel Tower designed to convince world leaders to take further action against climate change.

“Power Our Planet: Live in Paris” is set for June 22 to coincide with the Summit for a New Global Financial Pact, a gathering of the world’s political and business leaders to help developing nations finance sustainability projects.

Global Citizen CEO Hugh Evans says the summit is an opportunity for governments and global banks to collaborate to jump start climate projects stalled by the COVID-19 pandemic. He hopes “Power Our Planet” will encourage leaders to take advantage of that opportunity and provide the $16.7 billion in outstanding climate financing promised in 2009 to lower-income countries. He is also seeking to advance reforms at the World Bank to make up to $1 trillion in additional financing available.

If these projects are so great then why aren’t banks dumping their own money into them? Why is it necessary for “superstars” to take long fossil fueled trips to participate in concerts where people take lots of fossil fueled travel to attend?

France Bans Short-Haul Flights: Decrees Travelers Must Catch a Train Instead

The French government published a decree Tuesday banning domestic commercial airline flights for journeys possible in less than two-and-a-half hours by train.

AFP reports although the move was first included in a 2021 climate law and applied in practice, the Union of French Airports (UAF) as well as the European branch of the Airports Council International (ACI Europe) sought European Commission action to investigate whether it was legal.

It has now been passed into law.

The legislation does specify train services on the same route must be frequent, timely and well-connected enough to meet the needs of passengers who would otherwise travel by air — and able to absorb the increase in passenger numbers, according to AFP.

Here’s where it gets fun

No comparable decree for elite private jet travel on the same routes has yet been issued.

In other words, the Elites, including those passing the laws, can still take their private flights. Funny how this always only applies to the peasants.

Explosion of AP climate change stories following $8 million environmental grant

In the year following a grant of more than $8 million to the Associated Press from key climate change advocates, the news service has poured out at least 64 stories warning of environmental calamity, according to a new media study.

Media Research Center Business charted the stories and language used following the multimillion-dollar grant and found that AP also used over 500 environmental extremism buzzwords in the stories. (snip)

The MRC Business study authors wrote, “The so-called ‘journalism’ AP has been doing on climate involves behaving like the de facto mouthpiece for its major left-wing donors who have an obsession with pushing apocalyptic climate narratives on the internet.”

Funny how journalism is part of the climate cult. For a bunch of cash.

    Bwaha! Lolgf

      And yet, no mea culpas on that. Not from the National Democratic party controlled media. Not from the local commenters. Not even from the Republican controlled opposition media. If they lied about his, it’s not really a stretch that they lied about everything, on every topic.

    Mr Teach:

    If these projects are so great then why aren’t banks dumping their own money into them?

    Because banks are risk averse and pursue low risk, low return investments, e.g., home mortgages, car loans, home equity loans, some business loans… loans with collateral.

    High risk investors are looking for high returns. They are not looking for 7% returns but 700% returns. IPOs, technologies, crypto, startups, junk bonds etc. The risk of losing principal is high.

    Without the 2 trillion dollar permanent tax cut Trump gave to the elites there would not be as many private jets

      Carbon Boy-come up with proof of that assertion yet? Of course not-but should be easy if it’s true, correct?

  4. H says:

    America was great when taxes on the elites was high
    Make America Great Again
    Also no single use plastic bags or plastic straws

    • Jl says:

      Actually, America is greater with lower taxes on the “elites”. Be careful, Carbon boy-you might get kicked out of your club for supporting a system that allows the “elites” to pay a smaller share of the total tax bill.

        Jill – come up with proof of that assertion yet? Of course not-but should be easy if it’s true, correct?

    • david7134 says:

      You have made that assertion many times and have been proven wrong. Fact is there is more tax revenue generated when tax rates are lower. Why don’t you take some courses in economics, would help with your confusion.

  5. MrToad says:

    Can people just write off the cost of those concert tickets since it’s supporting “climate change”? I’d imagine that’s all these folks will do, raise prices enough to cover their “donation” to the cause.

    It had better be a damn big donation too, those stage lights and amplifiers just chew up everyone else’s electricity during this “climate emergency!”

  6. Jl says:

    Sure I did J, you just missed it. The proof is the “rich” paying a higher share of the tax bill because of lower rates. Libs should love that, except for Johnny. Must be over his head..,
