Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg is looking to the world for suggestions as to how she can re-cross the Atlantic after next month’s U.N. climate summit in Chile was unexpectedly scrapped. The 16-year-old made it from Sweden to California by yacht, train and electric car before Chile’s government announced it was canning the summit because of political unrest in the South American nation. The COP25 summit will now be held in Spain

No such thing as a carbon-free mode of travel. Not even walking or swimming, unless you plan to never exhale.

How about a hot air balloon? A homemade one? That's what two East German families had to use to escape their communist hellhole. Y'know the same kind of place Greta wants.

Swim? Or sail again? But crossing the North Atlantic in winter is not something a small sailboat should be doing. Is this what she recommends the rest of the world does to get around? Or maybe we just forget about doing business and vacations overseas? Sheesh.

Greta.... take whatever mode of transportation that is already going to Spain! Whether a jet or ship, there is one going there whether you are on it or not. The "carbon footprint" damage is already done and you not taking it changes nothing! If it makes you feel better, plant some trees or give a lecture or two on the ship or in the airport. Better yet, take a bunch of Xanax and sedate yourself the entire trip to reduce your personal carbon emissions. Either way, your professed "carbon free" life probably emits just as much or more carbon as everyone else every time you go to a full auditorium full of hot spotlights and climate change crazies who emit a ton of carbon emissions getting to see you spew your rants.

Get a bicycle. Ride is up to Wales, Alaska. (Watch out for bears. The white ones will eat you for sure.) Hire someone to paddle you or sail you the 100 miles across the Bering Strait to Lavrentiya, Russia. Take your bicycle. Bicycle across northern Russia in winter to your native Sweden. (Watch out for bears and wolves) Problem solved.

WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump loses in a hypothetical matchup with all of the leading candidates for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, according to the results of a Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday. Trump – with a job approval rating twenty percentage points lower than his disapproval rating of 58% – trailed by sizable margins against former Vice President Joe Biden (56%-39%); Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts (54%-39%); Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont (56%-39%), South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (52%-41%) and Sen. Kamala Harris of California (52%-41%).

Joe Biden is out pulling rank. In response to a little priest in South Carolina denying him Holy Communion for advocating pro-abortion positions inconsistent with Church teaching, the former vice president and Democratic Party presidential frontrunner made it clear he didn't deal with pipsqueaks. Asked about the incident, Lifesite News reported Biden's response: “It’s not a position that I’ve found anywhere else, including from the Holy Father, who gives me Communion.” So instead of thinking about the priest's position and offering some kind of contemplative thought, Biden declared it was all O.K. to be advocating for abortion from his position,

Sea level rise is set to challenge human civilization for centuries to come, even if internationally agreed climate goals are met and planet-warming emissions are then immediately eliminated, researchers have found. The lag time between rising global temperatures and the knock-on impact of coastal inundation means that the world will be dealing with ever-rising sea levels into the 2300s, regardless of prompt action to address the climate crisis, according to the new study. Even if governments meet their commitments from the landmark 2015 Paris climate agreement, the first 15-year period of the deal will still result in enough emissions

The woman, driving an early 2000s silver Mercedes, can been seen trying to force her vehicle between a pillar and in front of another car in the line.

The announcement last Thursday that popular veteran Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge would be leaving the channel the following day – and moving to a new job as Senior Investigative Correspondent at CBS News later this month – took both viewers and media watchers by complete surprise. On the heels of the declaration three weeks earlier by prominent Fox News Channel news host Shepard Smith during his afternoon program that he would be leaving the channel that same day, the news about Herridge occasioned an immediate wealth of wild speculation by pundits weighing in with their opinions about what her departure means for the future of Fox News.

John Durham may be the most consequential and least known figure in Washington right now. In May, U.S. attorney general William Barr selected Durham, a longtime prosecutor with a résumé so sterling it nearly glows, to investigate the origins of the special counsel’s probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and whether it was properly predicated. Some Trump fans believe there was a vast effort by a “deep state” of high-ranking intelligence and law-enforcement officials to smear Trump or hinder his campaign by creating a perception of corrupt ties to Russia. In late October, the New York Times quoted unnamed sources who said that Durham’s probe

President Donald Trump has waged a war on Mexican drug cartels after three American mothers and six children from a Mormon community based in northern Mexico were massacred by cartel gunmen. The victims, who belonged to the LeBaron family, were ambushed by cartel gunmen eight miles apart on a dirt road in the Mexican border state of Sonora on Monday while traveling in a convoy of three SUVs - one of which had suffered a flat tire. At the time of the attack, the family members were traveling from the La Mora religious community where they live, which is a decades-old settlement in Sonora state founded

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suggested on Tuesday that the United States has “abdicated” its role “as a country that leads the world toward a more hopeful future” under the Trump administration, pointing to the withdrawal of the Paris climate agreement. The U.S. took formal steps this week to officially withdraw from the 2015 Paris climate agreement. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed he submitted a notice to the United Nations, signaling the U.S. withdrawal of the symbolic agreement. (Snip) “On the climate crisis and on so many other fronts, the United States has abdicated its position as a country that leads the world toward a more hopeful future,” Clinton said.
