Gavin Newsome. Your Carbon Offsets Are Burning

Original Article

Posted By: shazbot123, 11/4/2019 4:36:30 AM

Those who leave their energy-guzzling multi-million-dollar mansions when they fly off on their private jets to save-the-planet climate change conferences like to ease their consciences and explain their hypocrisy by pointing to their carbon offsets like paying for trees to be planted somewhere that might mature in a hundred years or so. There are a lot of trees in California and a good number of them are on fire, thanks to environmental regulations and policies that are supposed to protect the environment but are in fact destroying it.

California is now pre-modern. As I see it, all their politicians have caved to the environmental nut jobs. Dead brush and trees need to be cleared from the lines all the time. When will they learn?

That area is a fire ecology. It has been burning off and regenerating for eons before humans were even there. Plant species have evolved and adapted to take advantage of fires to reproduce and regenerate. Read about the lodgepole pine. Humans building homes there and suppressing fires has allowed the brush and dead trees to build up, now nature is taking its' course. The leaders in California are just too stupid to recognize this.

We here at L.com have said for years that California only has itself to blame for it's almost yearly deadly conflagrations. Forestry Management works! But what do you expect of a state that elects fools who ignore human feces and contaminated druggie needles on the streets of its most famous and populated cities because of PC? The conservative parts of California need to break off and get away from the terminally stupid and greedy who keep electing Democrats. As to carbon credits.... good grief. Having spoken to some of these gullible fools, upper middle class ones in many instances, who (I kid you not) buy these silly carbon offsets when they fly, I am often rendered speechless with the sheer stupidity they spout. 11 airlines , yes 11!!, offer these scams, ahem I mean, carbon offset credits. What a cash cow for milking cash off guilty rich white people! Hippy dippy old Flower Children and gummy bears for brains Millennials just eat this stuff up.... because they personally are saving the planet, you know.

...and your career is melting. Newsome has been stone-stupid since his first day in office and the condition of California clearly illustrates that.

Harriet Blows Away Democratic Racial Myths 9 replies

History, someone once said, is a lie agreed upon, and nowhere is that more self-evident than in accounts of America’s racial history as told by Democrats. Republicans are the party of racism and slavery when the historical record shows just the opposite to be true. As Thomas Sowell notes, Democrats value black votes but not black voters. Democrats need black voters to be fearful, angry, resentful and paranoid. Black votes matter. If Republicans could get 20 percent of black votes, the Democrats would be ruined.

Beto O’Rourke will never get the chance to take away the AR-15 kept in the home of Jeremy King of Lithia, Florida. King and his family are grateful for that and for the right to keep and bear arms enshrined, without any asterisk, in the Second Amendment of the Constitution that Democrats claim to be defending. Yep, that AR-15, the very same “assault” weapon owned by bitter clingers said to endanger such families and the neighborhoods they live in.

The network coverage of the testimony of National Security Council staffer Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman as a “bombshell” and “damning” was laughable and dishonest, implying that his service to his country wearing its uniform made him a credible and unbiased witness without a political agenda. Particularly egregious were the comments of NBC News anchor Lester Holt, who equated wartime courage with peacetime candor.

In an age of “cafeteria Catholics” who pick and choose which church doctrines they will adhere to and which they will ignore, an age where we have a Pope Francis, who would have us pray for the oceans and invites Amazonian “priests” and their fertility gods into the Vatican, it was refreshing to see a Catholic priest speak truth to power and tell a craven Catholic politician that abortion-on-demand is a moral evil opposed by the Catholic Church and to approve of it means you are unworthy of receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion. .

With Quid Pro Joe Biden's confession to using U.S. resources to pressure a foreign government to benefit his son, maybe in the next Democrat debate, one of the questions will be why, if fossil fuels are evil, the Democrats are committed to ending their use, and we have a decade or so to live before we freeze our hoohahs to death, it was okay for Hunter Biden to sit on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas holding company. Seems Hunter had his very own greenback new deal.

Fox News legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano, who of late has been the poster child for the increasingly leftward tilt of the network touted as "fair and balanced," and who believes that President Trump is guilty of colluding with the Russians to affect the 2016 election and of pressuring Ukraine to investigate a political opponent, insists that the inquiry by Rep. Adam Schiff is perfectly legal because there is no requirement in law that a vote to conduct such an inquiry be taken.

Michelle Obama recently complained about "white flight" in her old Chicago neighborhood. By "white flight " she means that whites left her neighborhood as it became increasingly black. "Upstanding families like ours, who were doing everything we were supposed to do and better -- as we moved in, white folks moved out, because they were afraid of what our families represented," she said. "I always stop there when I talk about this out in the world because I want to remind white folks that y'all were running from us. This family, with all the values you read about: You ran from us. And you're still running."
Sea levels set to keep rising for
centuries even if emissions targets met

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

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly approved removing Dr. Martin Luther King’s name from one of the city’s most historic boulevards, less than a year after the city council decided to rename The Paseo for the civil rights icon. Unofficial results vote showed the proposal to remove King’s name received nearly 70% of the vote, with just over 30% voting to retain King’s name. The debate over the name of the 10-mile (16.1 kilometer) boulevard on the city’s mostly black east side began shortly after the council’s decision in January

Scientists are imploring members of the public to eat less meat as they warn that the world is facing a climate emergency. In a paper published today in journal BioScience, a global team of scientists have declared a climate emergency, detailing six areas of action they say must be addressed that can help slow down the impact of climate change. The paper, which features more than 11,000 scientist signatories from 153 countries, was authored by scientists from the University of Sydney, Oregon State University, the University of Cape Town and Tufts University.

WASHINGTON – The 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said Tuesday night that she did not understand the change she has seen in former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani in recent years, joking that it seemed as if "aliens had seized his brain." She made the comment after "Late Late Show" host James Corden asked Clinton if she had been surprised by Giuliani's behavior. "Totally," she said, laughing. "He was mayor during 9/11. I was a senator, I worked with him, and I don't know what happened. It's almost like aliens have seized his brain."

Tonight there are plenty of delicious tears from Bevin supporters," the party said in a Facebook post Tuesday night.

Actor Rob Schneider one-upped House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about the mentality of Democratic voters. And added an obscenity. The former “Saturday Night Live” comic disparaged deep-blue California’s electorate in the context of commenting on an article about “the Left’s ignorance of Stalin’s tyranny.” “Unfortunately, people in California would vote for a bowl of s—t if it had ‘D’ next to it,” he tweeted. Mr. Schneider himself spelled out the obscene term. Last spring, Mrs. Pelosi disparaged the victory of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in a New York congressional district, saying a “glass of water with a D next to its

Oh boy, have the wounds healed? According to multiple media reports former Attorney General Jeff Sessions is poised to run for his longtime Senate seat in Alabama. He would be challenging Senator Doug Jones who is considered the most vulnerable Democrat in the Senate. Mr. Sessions was generally disappointing during his tenure as AG; driven primarily by his recusal from all issues around the 2016 campaign, including the Mueller investigation. President Trump requested his resignation the day after the mid-terms, and President Trump stated giving Jeff Sessions the AG job was the biggest mistake of his presidency. On the upside, Sessions was a good Senator and dependably strong on immigration and
