Frequent private jet passenger, John Kerry, admits that destruction of the farming industry is essential to achieving 'Net Zero':
"Agriculture contributes about 33% of all the emissions of the world. And we can’t get to net zero—we don’t get this job done—unless agriculture is front and centre as part of the solution."
"You just can’t continue to both warm the planet, while also expecting to feed it. It doesn’t work. So we have to reduce emissions from the food system."
Explains all the talk about eating bugs. I would add I wrote about this many years ago at American Thinker.
Climate-change alarmists have fun scaring people with big numbers without context. Take this article, for instance (https://www.livescience.com/planet-earth/climate-change/energy-of-25-billion-atomic-bombs-trapped-on-earth-in-just-50-years-all-because-of-global-warming). Sounds really scary that our additions to global greenhouse gases have "trapped" 25 billion atomic bombs' worth of energy (using the bomb dropped on Hiroshima as the standard) in the last 50 years. But when compared with the energy of 4.1 million hydrogen bombs per second, well, it's not so scary. (4.1 million per second = 246 million per hour = 5.904 billion per day = 2.154960 trillion per year = 107.748 trillion per 50 years, or 4.309920 billion times as many as we've "trapped" with our greenhouse gas increases.)
We don't have any proof of life of any sort existing outside of the Earth, much less of aliens coming in spacecraft. Wouldn't we find alien microbes at some point, especially if they are landing and opening their ships and whatnot? Crashing? I would think that supposed crashed ship would have been crawling with alien microbes. So where are the slides from the lab?
Carlos Felix Velázquez replies:
Good point. Christian apologist and astrophysicist, Hugh Ross (who was a student at Carl Sagan's lectures), in this year old interview with the Babylon Bee goes into several reasons why carbon based extraterrestrial life is extremely unlikely. He also discusses the UFO phenomena and attributes it to mostly angels or demons. However, I don't find his explanation covers all reported phenomena.
Just some thoughts about the claims of "recovered crashed alien craft".
Now, I assume that the aliens traversed the vastness of interstellar space at some significant fraction of the speed of light. Maybe 99% of the speed of light. That would be a reasonable expectation.
Then, when they finally arrived here, after many years of traveling at that speed, they crashed.
That's very sad for them, but I would like to express my relief and gratitude for the fact that before they crashed into earth, they slowed down.
And one must ask how a vessel moving at near lightspeed through interstellar space, pushing ice and rocks out of its path as it zooms through the darkness, can then crash on the Earth? I mean, it survived in a very hostile, dangerous environment full of junk that could cream it and then amazingly is shot down or just plain old crashed.
Man those aliens sure ain't what they're cracked up to be!
Biden Crime Family now evolved into the Biden Mafia:

This does NOT prove that all "Tic-Tac" UFOs are airliners but in this instance it was another airliner as this detailed analysis shows using FlightAware historical data which he is able to replay and view from several angles. Must watch the whole 10 minute video to follow the detailed reasoning.
Tracking Down a Tic-Tac UFO

"Whistleblower" Grusch testifies the US has possession of bodies of ET UFO pilots. Except he's just parroting what others have told him. He doesn't have first hand knowledge. He's just very gullible. I'm skeptical and want to see verifiable evidence investigated by independent scientists who'll adhere to scientific procedures.
Rep. Nancy Gerace asks him: "Were they – I guess – human or non-human biologics?” Mr. Grusch replied, "Non-human, and that was the assessment of people with direct knowledge of the program I talked to that are currently still on the program.” Ms. Mace then inquired whether this evidence was in photo, documentary, video, eyewitness, or other form. Grusch said that "the specific documentation I would have to talk you in a SCIF about.” A SCIF is a sensitive compartmented information facility that stores highly classified information."
JUST IN: US Recovered 'Non-Human' Beings From UFO Crash Sites, Whistleblower Testifies
Notice how he says "nonhuman" and not "extraterrestrial". Intersting parsing of words. Perhaps what was found was a test plane with an animal in it? A chimp, perhaps? That would be non-human and at the same time would not be of extraterrestrial origin.
I think the government is using this to divert attention from any number of possible things. I think it may be a way to trick our enemies into believing we are wasting time on stupidity.
Or it could well just be a way of diverting attention from the political disasters of the Biden Adminstration. Remember they started talking about this when the Chinese spy balloon passed over the U.S. Very convenient.
How do you hide a conspiracy in plain sight? By making a bunch of conspiracies and thus yours just becomes "another conspiracy theory".
IF they actually found an alien spacecraft with a dead alien in it (and not a Honduran or whatnot but an extraterrestrial) then why are they still playing coy? It is the government itself that has been allowing these people to talk and has been dribbling this stuff out there. They wouldn't do that if this were true, methinks. And why now? Why wasn't this stuff out there years ago? I think this is a top secret program testing advanced military technology.
SCOTUS makes common sense, pro-energy, pro-pipeline decision overruling 4th district court. Oddly enough, Biden's so-called "Fiscal Responsibility Act" is said to have shifted judicial review away from "too environmental" 4th District Court to Columbia District Court, although they were not involved as developers appealed directly to SCOTUS.

USAF colonel says we shouldn't hire white pilots any more. That diversity and inclusivity are the priorities. More proof of the wokeness imposed on our military by this odious administration.
"Stop Hiring White Pilots" Colonel Wootan USAF
And exactly what are the beneifits of "inclusivity" and "diversit anyway? How does it actually improve military readiness, or make for better pilots? I am so tired of this shibboleth. There is nary a shred of evidence to suggest diversity improves anything. On the contrary,t here is considerable evidence it has the exact opposite effect.
"Diversity" might be useful in an organization where a plethora of ideas are valued and input from the workers is important, perhaps, but the military is a rigid top-down insitution and there is no benefit to it. In fact the military labors to break "diversity" and "inclusivity" when training recruits; they are not to be white or black or yellow or anything except olive-drab green. They are supposed to lose their individualism and cultural traits while serving and the military is supposed to be their culture and heritage. They start that in basic training.
So, we try to beat our differences out of recruits, then these woke military nitwits call for "more diversity". Why? Either it is a pearl of great price or it isn't. If it is so valuable then we may eschew basic training and uniforms and military haircuts and every other thing designed to knock individuality out of the recruits.
This is beyond stupid.
It is especially beyond stupid to choose pilots based on affirmative action guidelines. People will die needlessly. Our military efficiency and capabilities will suffer.
I remember the military used to recruit on the basis of merit, and actually encouraged people to join to prove their mettle. Now it is morphing into the U.S. Post Office. That really worked out well for us when they turned the USPS into a minority outreach agency.
I tried to Google studies on capabilities of pilots based on race and sex. I found ones about "bias against women and minorities" but not about actual capabilities. Interesting, no?
My brother was a PACE instructor on a number of naval vessels and he told me that women at least were given a wide amount of latitude. They could have more "downs" on their record than male pilots, for example. And there were cases he told me about. For example,a woman pilot crashed on landing on an air-craft carrier. She had shut her com off because she didn't want them to hear she was crying (which she had been until she shut the com off). The result was a crash. She had had problems before that but she was a female aviator and they desperately wanted such. It's something they've been doing for a long time now (this was back in the '90's.)
It's one thing to put less-competent people in some jobs (like postal carriers) but where lives are concerned it is a dreadful idea. Affirmative action pilots are just daft; it MUST be on the basis of merit.

The heavy bets are on the Fed raising rates again today. Treasury inversion continues unabated after small reprieve.
The hinky jobs numbers. This is a white collar layoff, therefore they are not immediately going on the unemployment rolls. They are burning through their severance pay and savings, then it will be selling the house and moving to cheaper digs in cheaper areas. This is taking a while.
Also it is going to be close to a decade, at least before we see any light in this. Hard sledding. So prepare to survive it.
The government spending continues apace, Yellen may not be able to get another buy from the Chinese. The debt ceiling has become meaningless, but who will be the buyers? If she forces the debt into American institutions, that takes dollars away from the domestic market and means a very mean jobs recession. Powell has completely changed the landscape, getting rid of London Libor and breaking free from Europe. Yellen is an EU and WEF advocate. Powell has never respected Yellen. The bankers and the FED have no interest of backing up Yellen and this administration and they want free from Europe and their dreams of recovering world dominance using the USA to advance their agenda.
ESG Environmental Social Governance is already being used in China and Russia. The global elites are pushing it because it would concentrate more power in the hands of a few. Sadly, if we remember Germany during the last war the Nazi’s had a similar system. Only 30% of the people supported the Third Reich but every business prominently displayed the Swastika because of the consequences. In Europe now every hotel and business prominently displays the Gay flag. Do you think every business supports the Gay/Trans agenda? People that have no animosity for Gay people are forced to support the cause or they can be denied credit or worse. We saw how not supporting Black Lives Matter resulted in people being labeled as racist. We have been willing in the US to be judged by our individual character and merits because the alternative is Fascism. Have our youth been denied enough history and civics that they can’t see the result of turning over their conscience to the elites of the New World Order?
More proof today.

I expect either another pandemic or some other emergency (like war with Russia or Iran) to come up just in time to aid Joe Biden.

This from Climate Change Dispatch:
The historical data shows no heat-wave crisis, but the media are claiming the opposite using misdirection and cherry-picked data.
Don't Blame Climate Change For Summer Heat Waves. Here's Why
July 26, 2023
There are claims that we will see greater temperature extremes due to climate change. But the evidence for this occurring isn't very strong.
When you look at the IPCC report, what they do commit to is that we have evidence for an increase in heatwaves.
So, obviously, if you define a heatwave at some level of heat that rarely occurs then even if the global average only rises by 0.38 degrees C, then we will see more of those heatwave events.
So, that is strictly true.
However that really has not much to do with the story that the media is presenting. They are not saying that heatwaves are now, on average, 0.38 degrees hotter than the 1979 - 2023 average.
Imagine that, the globe is on average 0.38 degrees hotter. And so heatwaves are on average 0.38 degrees hotter, and also therefore more common based on some arbitrarily chosen definition.
0.38 degrees is of course not a temperature difference which would be noticed by humans. There are greater differences in air temperature as you walk from one side of a room to the other!!
So yes this is a factor. But it's a very small factor.
If a person is feeling extremely uncomfortable in summer heat then there is a far greater chance that they are suffering the impacts of the Urban Heat Island effect, or perhaps the effects of their own Subcutaneous Insulation!! (see how delicately I phrased that last point!!)
As for the Urban Heat Island Effect I used to read Roger Pielke Sr. and he was monomaniacal on that subject. He was convinced all "global warming" was an artifact of land-use change and nothing more. He made a good case for it too. Pielke was, of course, a top player in the climate game.
What feminist don’t think about when they denigrate men in their quest for "equality.”
You just need to look at the mortality stats of the US to see women live longer than men. Perhaps equality is not as desirable as we were led to believe.
Notice how lopsided the image is above age 70? The country is over 30% more female than male above age 70.
If you take a look at the grouping from age 5 to 24, any other group of twenty years or more, the men are dying off at an incredible rate. This says so much about the kinds of things that happen to men by the time they reach retirement age.
90% of suicides are men according to CDC numbers.
90% of the prison population is male.
Zero women in the U.S. are required to sign the military draft, but 100% of men have to sign the selective service when they turn 18.
In some life-threatenin
Few women work in the sewer system.
99% of roofing workers are male.
95% of Bricklayers.
I'm not saying, "Women can't be equal", but perhaps the feminist view of equality needs to stop believing that denigrating men and providing more advantages and opportunities for women will make women "equal.” It is perverse to believe that you can cut off someone’s legs to make everyone the same height.
Perhaps women should appreciate men and feel gratitude for yhe role men play in our society.
Men are literally dying to keep the rest of us alive and give us the benefits of their sacrifices.

When ESG scoring and mandates began, I began to do deeper dives into how ESG companies were rated and their performance impact on portfolios. One of the biggest limitations is the lack of standards for the defining and scoring of ESG factors. ESG ratings agencies can use different criteria to assess companies, which can lead to inconsistencies
One ESG rating agency might give a company a high rating for its environmental performance, while another rating agency might give the same company a low rating. Many highly rated "green" companies source materials using destructive mining practices and questionable fair labor practices.
