How politicians and governments around the world are dealing with climate change, solar energy and harnessing renewable resources.
Planet in Peril
Everybody is talking about climate change and the need for green energy production, in order to curb greenhouse gas emissions. I want to demonstrate the link between greenhouse gas emissions, carbon foot prints, and their inexorable link to economies. I want to show why climate change, to some countries at least, there are very limited options for tools to fight the problem. But, first, if you allow me, I want to recapitulate some basic facts on climate change as they are known within the scientific community and to the general public.Michael Taguma
Denmark Leads the EU and World in Renewable Energy
Climate change has been changing the way the European Union looks at how its States are consuming energy. The planet is telling us that due to our dependency on fossil fuels, deforestation, livestock-farming, and other human activities, it is suffering. We are now seeing suffering water resources, rising sea levels, and weather phenomena. This global effect has called for mass action in order to reduce greenhouse gases and our dependence on fossil fuels. In order to provide the population with electricity, renewable sources have to be put in place at a rapid pace. With goals of lessening the use of dwindling sources by 2030, the EU has invested infrastructure changes, resources and research to increasing the use of renewable energy.KJ Mullins
Let’s be completely and totally honest with ourselves here; the climate is changing. This is not really up for debate. Some may think that it is, but if you look at the data and even just use the eye test it is clear to see unless you’re sticking your head deep into the sand like an ostrich. 97% of experts agree on climate change, which begs the question: why is there so much opposition to it?James Mullen
Climate Change: Time to Rethink?
Some thoughts based on limited academic research but on a lot of life. The climate of Planet Earth has been in a state of constant change since it first started to form as an object in space.Peter Rose
A Grim Fairy Tale, the Paris Environmental Accord and Its Repudiation
I am a very strong believer in protecting and preserving the environment but I am not a believer in deceptive use of smoke and mirrors to obfuscate that goal. The recently rejected Paris “Accord” was, in my opinion, not only inadequate, but fraudulent. It is non-binding for heavens sakes! How much more than that do real environmentalists (as opposed to political opportunists) need to know? It’s as though the nuclear non-proliferation treaty were non-binding and merely aspirational. Or criminal laws just suggestions. Aspirations are fine for what they’re worth, especially when, as in the Paris Accord, they include details and targets, a positive thing. But to fool progressives into thinking that they are more than wishful thinking and to deflect real efforts to create binding standards likely to be complied with is malevolent.Guillermo Calvo
Conversation with Robert Kennedy Jr.
It is no secret that we are currently in an unprecedented environmental tailspin. Carbon levels are rising dangerously, the polar ice caps are melting, and species are rapidly disappearing etc. While the rest of the world has taken steps to mitigate the damage humans cause the planet, The United States has taken a cynical and irresponsible path towards climate change.Michael Lee Nirenberg
Descent Into Darkness
As time marches on the tempo of life has filled the world with an anxiousness, a foreboding premonition of darker times ahead. Today, the world has morphed into a more violent and troubled place. A place that is far removed form the serenity of those glorious days of yesteryear. A world now filled with terrorist groups and rouge nations whose leaders spread terror far and wide to achieve their diabolical ends. We also live in an age where drug cartels continue to spread their poison to an already susceptible public. The carnage that follows is all to apparent today in practically every city across the US. And, now the United States is being led by Tweedledee and Tweedledum who are steering this country to the brink of disaster by their eagerness to catapult this nation closer to international conflicts that have really no bearing on the lives and livelihoods of everyday Americans. In all probability the United States will instigate the ultimate disaster that will send international tremors reverberating all around the globe.
Morality Lost in the Age of Decadence
We have seen it on our TV screens, we hear it on the radio, we continue to witness it in the movies and we have experienced it in person. The age of decadent, amoral behavior has redefined our nation. This transformation has rendered the United States incapable of healing the wounds that have divided this nation.
