Pat Robertson Attacks Global Warming As 'Climate Religion' 6.12.2018 Crooks Liars
On the 700 Club, Pat Robertson promoted the bogus attacks on climate change perpetrated by Stephen Moore, called the efforts to curb global warming a religion and used an upcoming cold streak to dispel the "so-called climate change. " Pat Robertson, like Trump, confuses environmental protections for air and water as caveats to global warming. Pat said, "But the truth is, this "climate religion" is an attempt to take over the industry and cripple the productive industries of the world." Pat Robertson can't see the irony in these words at all. Much of religion is based on faith, like his climate denials. Climate change and global warming are based on scientific research. Are all these scientists and Trump's own administration involved in creating their own One World Global conspiracy? And then Robertson made believe that when we have cold winters - that's his proof that global warming is a myth. Robertson blamed sunspots and said according to AccuWeather we are "going to have a really cold winter." "A ...

Don't Blame Trump For The GOP's Climate Denialism 5.12.2018 Crooks Liars
There's a great deal of climate change denialism in Republican Party, and The Washington Post's Matt Viser says it's all Donald Trump's fault: As President Trump’s rejection of climate science isolates the United States on the world stage, illustrated by the small U.S. delegation dispatched to this week’s United Nations climate summit in Poland, he has also presided over a transformation in the Republican Party — placing climate change skepticism squarely in the GOP’s ideological mainstream. Yes, according to Viser, "the two major political parties ... not long ago largely shared a fundamental view on the challenges posed by climate change," but then Trump came along and everything changed. Examples of this change, according to Viser? Sen.-elect Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee said falsely in the lead-up to her campaign that the Earth has started to cool, and argued inaccurately that scientists have not reached a consensus on climate change. In Florida, which has been pummeled by hurricanes, Sen.-elect ...

How the Blue Wave Swelled to a Tsunami in Orange County 30.11.2018 American Prospect
AP Photo/Chris Carlson, File Democratic Representative-elect Katie Porter speaks during an election night event on in Tustin, California.  Ever since California’s Orange County helped power the rise of Barry Goldwater and the Reagan Revolution, political observers have viewed it as the quintessential Republican stronghold.  Such congressional representatives as Dana Rohrabacher and Robert Dornan personified the belligerent far right, the Orange County Register promoted a hard-edged libertarian worldview, and Republican lawmakers such as Christopher Cox, Darrel Issa, and Ed Royce wielded considerable clout on Capitol Hill.      Named for orange groves long vanished, the suburban region south of Los Angeles was known for Disneyland, beautiful beaches, master planned communities, and a powerful conservative business class that exercised national political influence via the Lincoln Club, a high-rolling conservative fundraising group. Republican senators from across the nation made the pilgrimage to Orange ...

Climate change is making soils saltier, forcing many farmers to find new livelihoods 29.11.2018 Raw Story

Salt is essential for cooking, but too much salt in soil can ruin crops and render fields useless.

Tom DeLay Claims Government Scientists 'Paid To Further The Politics Of Global Warming' 27.11.2018 Crooks Liars
I fully expect to see former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay raking forest floors in California immediately, if not sooner. At the start of hurricane season, he shall be in Houston with a WetVac. He's not afraid of non-existent climate change. That devastating, 1600-page climate change report Hair Führer released on the Friday after Thanksgiving don't mean NOTHING to him. It was all political, get me? CNN host Brianna Keilar did an admirable job attempting to push back on the intentionally obtuse bulldukey spouted by DeLay, but he kept coming at her with Republican rejection of actual science. She asked him about the report, correctly calling it "buried" on Black Friday, and what he thought Republicans should do about it. DELAY: They should be standing up for good -- I tried to read the report that came out Friday and frankly it is horrible. I can't understand why the trump administration allows -- I know that the statute calls for such a report, but for this report that is nothing more than a political ...
