Corporations See a Different Kind of “Green” in Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal”

 

If you suspect I don’t entirely trust Miss Cortez, you may be onto something.

A rapid global shift to clean energy is needed to prevent runaway climate change, says António Guterres

“What we’ve done is build a [direct-air capture] process that is—as much as possible—built on existing processes and technologies that are widespread in the world,” said David Keith, a professor of applied physics at Harvard and the lead author of the new study. “That’s why we think we have a reasonable possibility of scaling up.”

Turning Air Into Gasoline

The new paper says it can remove the same ton for as little as $94, and for no more than $232. At those rates, it would cost between $1 and $2.50 to remove the carbon dioxide released by burning a gallon of gasoline in a modern car.

While I don’t like linking to Mother Jones, with a disclaimer that they will mislead on controversial issues, this seems pretty straightforward:

The most crucial piece of info is on this image:

When that day comes, it’s time.

Remember Mother Jones, The Nation and a host of other so-called “progressive” and “alternative” outlets receive shady foundation funding, some of it connected to the Ford Foundation and the CIA.

This is truly scary shit that I hadn’t heard about.  The “Permian Extinction” resulted from a massive volcanic release that warmed the earth by 6 degrees Celsius.  That warming led to massive releases of methane from the oceans and permafrost which doubled the temperature gain, killing off 95% of species on earth.

Scientists say we are already at the same levels of carbon release as that volcano.

I’m glad we have that global cooling I read about on those angry right-leaning websites, because it’s only 110 degrees today in North Cali.  Although it was 114 a couple weeks ago, and that was warm.  I’m glad those guys have our best interests at heart, and I expect the climate scientists to all come around any time now.

Josh Fox’s Gasland II to expose power politics of fracking

“Sequel of Oscar-nominated film on natural gas boom puts focus on climate change, oil lobby and the US government”

 

Josh Fox goes after the corruption that is the US system.

Obama Climate Plan Touts Gas Fracking As “Transition Fuel,” Doubling Down on Methane Risk

 

There is a clear disconnect between the president’s stated commitment to a healthy future for children, and the vast expansion of natural gas drilling and fracking, which are scientifically proven to be polluting the air and drinking water of Americans.”

“That premise is false. When measured in its entire life cycle – as Cornell University researchers found – fracked gas is actually dirtier than coal  and therefore is a bridge to nowhere other than extreme climate disruption.”

 

First Study of Its Kind Detects 44 Hazardous Air Pollutants at Gas Drilling Sites

With gas wells in some states being drilled near schools and homes, scientists see a need for better chemical disclosure laws and follow-up research.
