Earth Needs Fewer People to Beat the Climate Crisis, Scientists Say

(Bloomberg) -- Forty years ago, scientists from 50 nations converged on Geneva to discuss what was then called the “CO2-climate problem.” At the time, with reliance on fossil fuels having helped trigger the 1979 oil crisis, they predicted global warming would eventually become a major environmental challenge.

The scientists got to work, building a strategy on how to attack the problem and laying the groundwork for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the world’s preeminent body of climate scientists. Their goal was to get ahead of the problem before it was too late. But after a fast start, the fossil fuel industry, politics and the prioritization of economic growth over planetary health slowed them down.

Now, four decades later, a larger group of scientists is sounding another, much more urgent alarm. More than 11,000 experts from around the world are calling for a critical addition to the main strategy of dumping fossil fuels for renewable energy: there needs to be far fewer humans on the planet.

“We declare, with more than 11,000 scientist signatories from around the world, clearly and unequivocally that planet Earth is facing a climate emergency,” the scientists wrote in a stark warning published Tuesday in the journal BioScience."


"As though you were watching a movie"

I find that statement so telling. tRump sees the whole world as a performance. The reality president who always speaks of crowd size and ratings. It's a dangerous way to view the military.

Remember once trump is removed from office we still have to deal with Pence...

He might be worse than tRump. Just saying...

tRump rally pushed Bishop over the edge...

I'm sick of hearing this all day long! I highly doubt tRump's rally helped Bishop. That being said tRump seems to get endless press because of his rallies. It seems like it is amounting to millions in free press coverage. What if anything can our eventual nominee do to counter the rallies? It would be nice to match the free coverage instead of having to pay for it. Its a huge advantage. The media will do anything for ratings these days. It sickens me.

Yesterday's election results in NC prove we can't play it safe in our presidential nomination...

We need to nominate a visionary like Bernie (or maybe Warren). The safe choice is going to fail just as it did in NC. Americans want change and are tired of the safe choice. The safe choice doesn't motivate the base to get out the vote. Let us learn from the election results and adjust our course to avoid a disaster.

Can we stop with the...

"This is getting serious..."
"Now he needs to be impeached..."
"This proves he is racist..."
"Now we know _____ about trump..."
Etc. Etc. Etc.

No there are no new lows or new revelations anymore. I'm tired of hearing people bringing up the daily tweets like it is revealing something new. Nope it's all known by now. Why trump is still in office is a disgrace. No one has the guts to do the right thing. I'm just tired of it all...

And that is all.

Ann Coulter says Trump 'deserves to lose,' will vote for him anyway

In an interview with the Washington Examiner, conservative commentator and author Ann Coulter shared her thoughts on the current political environment, including topics ranging from President Trump and the Republican National Committee to the Democratic presidential hopefuls.

Coulter began by slamming Trump for failing to fulfill his campaign promise of building a wall on the southern border.

“[Trump] deserves to lose. We don’t deserve a Democrat though,” Coulter said before adding that she has “repeatedly” told Trump that he does not need Congress to build the wall. When asked what she is most satisfied with about the Trump presidency, Coulter said “the tweeting is great.”


Trump rolls back regulations on energy-saving lightbulbs

The Trump administration on Wednesday announced that it will roll back requirements for more energy-efficient lightbulbs, introducing a set of rules that could lead to increased greenhouse gas emissions that accelerate global warming.

The filing from the Energy Department would prevent new efficiency requirements from implementation on Jan. 1 under a previous law passed in 2007 during President George W. Bush’s administration. That law phased out inefficient incandescent and halogen bulbs, and was approved with bipartisan support in Congress.


The law passed during GWB is being rolled back. GWB was too environmental for this president. Let that sink in.

Biden: "I want to be clear, I'm not going nuts"


Sarah Huckabee Sanders becomes Fox News contributor

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is joining Fox News as a contributor, the network announced Thursday.

Sanders, who left the Trump administration roughly two months ago, will appear on various Fox platforms to provide political commentary. She will make her first appearance on "Fox & Friends" during its Sept. 6 broadcast.

Sanders worked on the Trump campaign and later in the White House, where she spent approximately two years as press secretary. In that role, she oversaw the demise of the daily press briefing and had an at-times strained relationship with the press corps.

Note: bolding by me.
