Unlike other books out there about climate change, Carbon Shock takes readers on a journey to the front lines of a changing world, where the same chaotic forces reshaping our weather patterns are also transforming the global economy, playing havoc with corporate calculations, shifting economic and political power and upending our understanding of the real risks, costs and possibilities of what lays ...

Save the Humans

A few years ago, I was talking with Al Gore (yes, I'm name dropping). I asked him a very simple and pointed question: "Animal agriculture contributes about 18 percent of the gases that cause climate change. Why didn't you mention this in your book or movie?" His answer was disconcertingly honest. I'm paraphrasing, but he said: "For most people, the role of animal agriculture in climate change is too inconvenient of a truth. ...

Noon: People's Climate March Wants to Change the System, Not the Weather

Sep 28 2014 11:10pm CDT | Source: Big Government

“Extremist voices and groups have hijacked Islam and misappropriated the right to speak on its behalf,” Iyad Ameen Madani, secretary general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, told the 25th Session of the Arab Summit earlier this year. Surely sincere lovers of nature can similarly see that extremists have hijacked the environmental movement, as evidenced by the People’s Climate March last week in New York ...

It's the sports equivalent of the Chicago Tribune announcing "Dewey Defeats Truman" or NBC calling the 2000 presidential election for Al Gore. The Milwaukee Brewers sent fans tickets for the team's second playoff appearance in 32 years. But last night's loss to the Cincinnati Reds eliminated the Brew Crew from playoff contention. Milwaukee's collapse--going 10-23 since August 20--allowed both St. Louis and Pittsburgh ...

The Rockefeller Brothers Fund has divested from fossil fuels. We know this because it has been splashed all over the media - it got much prominence, for example, on BBC Radio 4's Today programme - for all the world as if we ought to find the news interesting or surprising or momentous. But it is none of these things. "Rockefeller Brothers Fund divests from fossil fuels" is a story right up there with "dentist ...

Can America still be saved?

Sep 25 2014 6:18pm CDT | Source: WND

I believe it is essential that the GOP take back control of the Senate in November because it would help limit the damage Obama can do to this nation in his final two years. But I’m not sure that’s enough. If you doff your rose-colored glasses, it’s awfully hard to see a lot of silver linings. Once you get past our gallant past and the promise of our divinely inspired Constitution, what do you see? What I see are a million abortions a year. I see the foolishness of same-sex ma ...

Soros pushing Obama scheme to shut down coal

Sep 24 2014 8:20pm CDT | Source: WND

A group of wealthy businessmen with ties to the Obama political machine has put out an email blast asking Americans to submit public comments to the EPA in favor of the president’s “aggressive plan to tackle climate change.” The new EPA rules would slap strict regulations on power plants through a plan critics say would result in millions of lost jobs and force consumers to pay more for their electricity. The EPA is accepting comments from the public through Dec. 1. ...
