Stephen Hawking calls for a return to the moon as Earth’s clock runs out 21.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Humans are overdue for a return trip to the moon, Stephen Hawking has just opined. Speaking on Tuesday at the Starmus Festival, a science-slash-musical gathering, the astrophysicist offered two parts doom cut with one part scientific optimism. He argued that we should prepare for a cosmic exodus to take place in the next 200 to 500 years. “We are running out of space, and the only place we can go to are other worlds. It is time to explore other solar systems,” he said via video link to the audie...

You can say one thing for California’s initiatives aimed at stemming fossil-fuel-driven climate change: They have the ability to drive conservative politicians from oil, gas and coal states batty.

There’s no other explanation for the overheated and borderline hysterical letter issued this week...

John Oliver picks a fight with the coal industry 20.6.2017 Daily Kos
A certain moment from last year’s presidential election is usually singled out by Trump supporters and out-of-touch elite media columnists who love to write long dissertations about how the Democratic party is out-of-touch with the white working class. During a March 2016 CNN Town Hall, Hillary Clinton was asked, in effect, why poor white should people vote for her.  Her response , where she talked about finding new job opportunities in a green economy that focused on clean renewable energy, was taken out of context and essentially quoted as: “we're going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” Opponents of climate change prevention policies attacked, tying her response together with criticisms of Obama administration policies, and the moment was used by the current president to double-down. Trump has promised to create thousands of new coal industry jobs, but the symbolism of it fit the Trump campaign’s modus operandi. For many of those who believe the bullshit about Trump and ...

Shootings? Beatings? Traffic Deaths? All Trump’s Fault! 20.6.2017 NewsBusters
A crazed leftist attempts to kill Republicans on a baseball field, a local candidate beats up a reporter, and an increase in traffic deaths. What do these all have in common? Liberal journalists managed to blame all of these incidents on President Donald Trump.  In the days after the baseball field shooting of Congressional Republicans there was much talk about violent political rhetoric inciting Bernie Sanders-supporting shooter, but former New York Times Executive Editor Jill Abramson, perversely blamed Trump and the GOP because they benefit from “a kind of rage machine.” Huffington Post writer Jesse Benn disgustingly tried to justify the act: “What’s more harmful: Putting millions already on the margins more at-risk via draconian policies, or shooting a racist lawmaker in the hip?” And Trump wasn’t just blamed for the shooting. When a Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte allegedly assaulted reporter Ben Jacobs, it wasn’t an isolated case of a politician losing his temper, it was because ...

Carbon dioxide not prime driver of warming, energy chief says 20.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • Energy Secretary Rick Perry said Monday he does not believe carbon dioxide is a primary contributor to global warming, a statement at odds with mainstream scientific consensus but in line with the head of the Environmental Protection Agency. Asked on CNBC’s “Squawk Box” whether carbon emissions are primarily responsible for climate change, Perry said no, adding that “most likely the primary control knob is the ocean waters and this environment that we live in.” Perry’s view is contr...
