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. The team of researchers conducted a scientific analysis

If they want to cut a significant amount of CO2 then all they have to do is to tell China that they must cut their emissions to equal the US. That will cut 2 1/2 times what their 6 step plan would do.

Considering the teaching standards these days, it's more likely accurate if the wording has been, "...more than 11,000 activist signatories from 153 countries..." science requires testing and opposition. These people have never been anything but acolytes for the new religion of Gaia.

So in the last couple of days, all-knowing "scientists" have said we all have to not eat meat and only have one child. Well, as soon as I see the entire muslim world start to follow this, maybe I will consider it to be something we should listen to. But we all know that that is never going to happen. Scientists are way too weenie to ever ask the muslim hoards to do anything. They just want to weaken and emasculate western people because too many western lie-berals believe all the BS they are feeding them!!!!!

Actually, #12, not "no effect", it has a very beneficial effect, it is REQUIRED for all green plants to live, and if they die, the planet dies. CO2 far from being the "danger" and "pollutant" that the idiot leftists make it out, is a critical life giving gas, which we are critically low on now. The planet needs MORE CO2.

Democrats who ran on newly-progressive platforms, like the Green New Deal, and made major gains in the Virginia state government on Tuesday credit those approaches as part of the reason for their successes at the close of expensive and ultra-competitive races. Democratic proponents and activists argue that a party-wide adoption of the state's Green New Deal plan helped the party flip six seats in the state's House of Delegates and two in the Senate. The Virginia Democratic Party rolled out its support for the plan in September in the run-up to the election. Similar to the Green New Deal legislation

The book apparently isn't shut on Aaron Hernandez's transgressions. A new book by investigative journalist Dylan Howard titled "Aaron Hernandez's Killing Fields" suggests the New England Patriots tight end -- who was convicted of one murder and acquitted in a double-murder case -- may be tied to a fourth murder. The revelation comes from Hernandez's former prison cellmate, Kyle Kennedy, who told Howard in an exclusive interview for the book that Hernandez would brag to Kennedy about his involvement in four murders. "[Aaron] always used to tell me he had four murders," Kennedy told Howard, via Radaronline. "He would just always, all

The chaos was the latest wave in increased violence in the Mexican border city, where daily drug-related murders are routine and more than 1,200 people have been killed this year. Juárez Mayor Armando Cabada said the attacks were retaliation by criminals for an impending prison search. The attacks were intended as a distraction by the Mexicles gang from a search planned to begin at midnight Wednesday at the Cereso No. 3 prison in Juárez, Chihuahua law enforcement authorities said at

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.

Amid new tensions between Tehran and the United States, demonstrations nationwide marked the Iran's National Day of Protest against Global Arrogance. The demonstrators chanted slogans against the United States and Israel and set their flags on fire. In Tehran, students and activists gathered outside the former U.S. Embassy, where on Nov. 4, 1979, a group of students stormed the building and took dozens of U.S. State Department workers hostage.

"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.

The CROWN Act – which has been passed in California and New York – gives residents a legal recourse if their hairstyle impacts their employment status, or if they’re denied service because of it. Montgomery County Council President Nancy Navarro said the CROWN Act “seeks to advance racial equity” by defining Protected Hairstyles.
