Mass Hysteria Driving the EV Phenomenon

Domino’s Pizza is rolling out hundreds of electric delivery vehicles. Cool! Or maybe not. Listen to this:

There was just another story in the news about an all electric vehicle (EV) spontaneously bursting into flames. This one was in California and it took 6,000 gallons of water to put it out.

Even the Left is finally catching on to the environmental consequences of transitioning everything to electric vehicles.  A story in The Guardian talked about water shortages, land grabs victimizing indigenous peoples, and destructive expansions of mining to feed the EV beast.  The facts are right, but The Guardian’s conclusion is all wrong: it’s all your fault and you’ll just have to drive less to make the transition your masters have ordered work.

The vehicle fires and the problems with environmental sustainability are fairly well known at this point, but there are other problems with our government pushing us into EVs that have not received nearly enough attention.

The charging technology just isn’t there.  It takes five days to charge an electric Hummer at home.

When you need a replacement battery, you just might be told to wait four years.

Electric cars are heavier and could cause parking garages, designed for lighter vehicles, to collapse.

EVs are not up to tough jobs.  New York City found electric garbage trucks only last four hours on the street when doubling as snow plows, making them unworkable.  The U.S. Forest Service is transitioning to EVs, but a critic said “they’re still built for highways and nowhere near capable of operating in extreme temperatures, navigating uneven terrain, towing heavy loads, or fulfilling any of the Forest Service’s other numerous responsibilities.”

The economics aren’t working out as expected.  Start-ups find they lose hundreds of thousands of dollars every time they sell an EV, due to climbing raw material and production costs.  Charging an EV in Norway is twice as expensive as filling a gas tank because electricity prices have risen so much.  Switzerland is considering intermittent bans on recharging EVs and lower speed limits because there’s just not enough electricity to go around.  EV production in Britain is falling because consumers are balking at the high price tag.  If the U.S. transitions completely to EVs, lower income people will be left behind.

There are less than 20 million EVs in the world right now.  If you increase that 25 times to 500 million, world consumption of oil would only fall by 10 percent.  That’s because most of the oil is used by airplanes, big trucks, and mining equipment.  Even if countries reach their EV goals by 2030, the temperature would only go down 0.0002 degrees under the United Nations climate model.

I’m all for new technology, but here’s what bothers me:  policymakers, many of whom personally have green energy investments, have gotten the public to romanticize EVs and to buy into the hysteria that we have to completely transition to EVs or the planet will burn up.  The policymakers have to know it’s all a bunch of malarkey as I’ve shown here today.  So why are they doing it?

The answer, as I’ve said in many previous commentaries, is ‘follow the money’.

Their wallets grow fatter when you turn off your brain and follow them blindly.

Hanoi Jane Fonda: ‘There’d Be No Climate Crisis if It Wasn’t For Racism’

This week on NBC’s The Kelly Clarkson Show, actress/activist/Vietnam-era traitor Jane Fonda has declared that the current “climate crisis” is a result of racism, because “everything’s connected.”

“Well, you know, you can take anything -– sexism, racism, misogyny, homophobia, whatever, the war, and if you really get into it, and study it and learn about it and the history of it and — everything’s connected. There’d be no climate crisis if it wasn’t for racism,” she said.

Asked to elaborate, Fonda replied, “Where would they put the shit? Where would they put the poison and the pollution? They’re not gonna put it in Bel Air. They’ve got to find some place where poor people or indigenous people or people of color are living. Put it there. They can’t fight back. And that’s why a big part of the climate movement now has to do with climate justice.”

This is a ridiculous simplification of the issue and doesn’t address where the vast majority of pollution comes from (it doesn’t come from “shit” put in black neighborhoods), but it’s par for the course for climate activists.

This isn’t the first time Hanoi Jane has tried to make bad weather a social justice issue. In a December appearance on MSNBC’s The Beat, she claimed — again without evidence — that racist and misogynistic “mindsets” are causing the “climate crisis.”

Supporting the Black Lives Matter Movement

In late May 2020, while scores of American cities were being ravaged by violent Black Lives Matter– and Antifa-led riots in the aftermath of the infamous police-involved death of a black Minneapolis man named George Floyd, Fonda claimed that most of the protests were non-violent. “I think it’s important for us to recognize that the media cameras may be focused on the breaking of windows and the burnings and the fires, but the vast majority of people at least in the cities where I talked to people and from what I have seen on tv, it’s non-violent,” she told CNN’s Don Lemon on May 31. “These are people who are white. They are Latino. They are old. They are young. They are in wheelchairs, they have children with them. They have dogs with them. And it’s organized. Black Lives Matter, Color of Change, they don’t want violence. I don’t know who the people are that are doing the violence, but I think what matters is that more and more white people are getting it.”

Great Food Reset: ‘Lab-Grown Meat’ Harvested in ‘Massive Steel Vats’ Edges Closer to Fed Approval

European Union approves worms and crickets for human consumption.


The Great Food Reset: ‘Lab-grown meat’ harvested in ‘massive steel vats’ edges closer to fed approval & U.S. dinner plates – As EU approves human consumption of worms & crickets

Climate Depot’s Marc Morano: “You Will Eat lab-grown ‘meat’ and bugs — and Be Happy. Or so the forces of the Great Food Reset believe. Bill Gates is gobbling up U.S. farmland (now the single largest owner) and the World Economic Forum pushes eating bugs, and the U.S. FDA and USDA edge closer to approving lab-grown ‘meat’ — Bon appetite?!

A food crisis and transformation are just the ticket for even more chaos that the WEF can exploit for their Reset agenda. The World Economic Forum is so eager to promote synthetic ‘meat’ that they are touting numerous ways to print up to 6 kilograms of the fake meat an hour. As part of this new coerced Great Diet Reset, the WEF has advocated eating bugs to save the planet. The Davos-based group has explained, “Why we might be eating insects soon.”

Our future is being planned by our overlords, load up on eating bugs to save the planet! It is a future that will happen, only if we allow it. It’s time for the Great Reject. Rise up and defy the Great Reset.”

Climate Depot Special Report

Lab-grown meat moves closer to American dinner plates – ‘Grown in enormous steel vessels called bioreactors & processed’ into meat-like substance– Eat lab-grown meat from ‘massive bioreactors’ to save the earth! ‘Our planet is in crisis’ – Restaurateur Andrés, known for his work on global food security, told Reuters he wants to sell cultivated meat because of its environmental benefits. “We can see in what is happening all around us, in every country around the globe, that our planet is in crisis,” he said.

(Reuters) – Once the stuff of science fiction, lab-grown meat could become reality in some restaurants in the United States as early as this year. Executives at cultivated meat companies are optimistic that meat grown in massive steel vats could be on the menu within months after one company won the go-ahead from a key regulator. … Cultivated meat is derived from a small sample of cells collected from livestock, which is then fed nutrients, grown in enormous steel vessels called bioreactors, and processed into something that looks and tastes like a real cut of meat. Just one country, Singapore, has so far approved the product for retail sale. But the United States is poised to follow. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in November that a cultivated meat product – a chicken breast grown by California-based UPSIDE Foods – was safe for human consumption. …

Another draw is that growing meat in a steel vessel instead of in a field could reduce the environmental impact of livestock, which are responsible for 14.5% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions through feed production, deforestation, manure management, and enteric fermentation – animal burps – according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).

European Union Approves Mealworms & Cricket Powder For Use in Bread, Crackers, Chocolate, & Soups Despite ‘Inconclusive’ Allergy Data

Europeans now also allowed to eat cricket powder and small mealworms – Earlier in January, the Commission also approved the use of small mealworms. The small mealworm may be used as (spread) paste, frozen, dried and powdered. Powdered mealworm larvae will also serve as a food supplement.

Daily Wire: Cricket powder will now be permitted in a number of food products, such as multigrain bread, crackers, cereal bars, biscuits, beer-like beverages, chocolates, sauces, whey powder, soups, and other items “intended for the general population,” according to the new regulation. Cricket One, a company that asserts that the insects are “nutritionally more efficient” and serve as a more reliable “source of alternative protein” than livestock, submitted the original application.

”Many children have the power of pester, so in some cases can be great agents of dietary change within the family” said Verity Jones from the University of the West of England in Bristol.

    1. Our current energy system is being intentionally collapsed ;
    2. Our transportation system is being intentionally collapsed; (and our freedom of movement is being stripped away)
    3. Our First Amendment free speech rights are being collapsed by government & corporate collusion;
    4. Our high-yield agricultural system is being intentionally collapsed to create man-made food shortages and chaos; and
    5. The ability to eat meat is being banned to compel us to eat ‘lab-grown’ fake meat and eat insects. Artificially caused food shortages will create demand for insect eating.  And our betters are using our children as hand-picked little ministers of propaganda to promote insect eating and ‘pester’ adults to comply with the agenda.

Dan Bongino: Here to weigh in is the author of the upcoming book, The Great Reset…Marc, no one knows more about the Great Reset than you, you literally wrote a book on it, we just showed the cover. …Is what we are seeing in the Netherlands a sign of things to come if the climate activists get their way here in the U.S. and other places?

Marc Morano: ‘We know that Bill Gates’ goal is to get us to stop eating meat and get us to start eating lab-grown, vegetable oil-processed fake meat. The same with Al Gore. The same with the World Economic Forum. They are pushing insect-eating as well. The United Nations, the World Economic Forum…That’s been their goal, the whole entire goal. First of all, you have the World Economic Forum which Bill Gates is a prominent member. You have Bill Gates buying up farmland — the single largest American farmland owner now, according to NBC News. I know no one likes a monopoly so don’t worry Dan. China is also gobbling up American farmland. So it’s a competition. We actually have good old market competition — China versus Bill Gates. Who do you want to win that battle? …

This will have devastating consequences because as the old Chinese proverb says, ‘When food is on the table there are many problems. When there is no food, there is only one problem.’

Don’t miss this: ‘A Wildflower Super-Bloom for the Ages’

With parts of California recently inundated by more rain than any time in the last quarter-century, the climate crisis industry is portraying the unusual weather event as more proof that the much ballyhooed climate “tipping point” is finally upon us. A few years back, they were making the same bogus claim about a stubborn drought that gripped the state from 2012-15. Below are two short articles I wrote about that massively over-hyped dry spell.


California: A Wildflower Super-Bloom for the Ages

In 2012, California was hit with a statewide drought that lasted 4 years. Over that period, The Los Angeles Times ran a relentless barrage of dire stories predicting that unless the U.S. immediately—immediately!—enacted massive carbon taxes, the drought would drone on forever.

Act now! voters were told, or vegetation in the state would be wiped out by a permanently parched environment, snow would be a thing of the past, and every river and lake in the state would dry up.

Despite a deafening crescendo of frantic, man-made hysteria, no carbon taxes were enacted. And guess what? Much to the consternation of the climate crisis industry, the California drought hit a stone wall in 2016, when plentiful rainfall returned to the state.

After failing to sufficiently terrify voters, red-faced editors at the LA Times had no choice but to report that California is flourishing again:

“It’s official: California is 100% drought-free. For the first time since 2011, the state shows no areas suffering from prolonged drought and illustrates almost entirely normal conditions, according to a map released Thursday by the U.S. Drought Monitor.”

The article continued:

“Reservoirs are full, lakes are full, the streams are flowing, there’s tons of snow.”

Thanks to Earth’s ever-changing climate, droughts come and droughts go. Unusually hot temperatures in the state gave way to cooler ones—Los Angeles just experienced its mildest February in recorded history, with not a single day above 70 degrees.

After being told that vegetation in the state would be permanently wiped out, Californians are now enjoying one of the most spectacular wildflower super blooms ever seen. Take a deep breath before looking at the pictures below, and don’t forget to thank God for climate change.

How could a dying planet produce a magnificent nature show like the one shown below?

Drought Fizzles: After 4 Years of Environmental Hyper-Ventilating by Climate Fear Industry , California’s Lakes Are Back at 100% Capacity

“A lie repeated often enough becomes the truth.” – Lenin


Feb. 2017: Since December 2015, sustained rainfall has caused water to flow into the spillway at California’s Lake Berryessa.

For the last four years, California votes were repeatedly told in increasingly frantic terms that the drought that began in 2012 was nail-in-the-coffin proof that the climate collapse “tipping point” had finally been reached.

Progressives in government, academia, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and the media relentlessly trumpeted dire warnings that California’s lakes would permanently dry up unless Americans agreed to immediate remedial action in the form of massive new taxes on carbon energy. Such taxes were never enacted, so did California’s lakes permanently dry up, as ominously predicted?

No, they didn’t. Not even close.

Last week, an official of the Data Exchange Center of the California Department of Water Resources told me the water level of the 47 selected reservoirs measured by the state are collectively 109% above historical averages.

One of the state’s most famous lakes, previously dried-up Lake Tahoe, joined the party with its largest water level rise in recorded history. In recognition that most of California’s lakes have returned to full capacity, the state’s Democrat governor was left with no choice but to declare an official end to the heavily-hyped drought.

Below are side-by-side pictures of Almaden Reservoir in Northern California near San Jose. One was taken before the drought started, the other when the drought was in full swing. This image is typical of the kind of visual terror progressives use to frighten voters into acquiescing to stratospheric new energy taxes.

Lake Almaden

But before enough voters could be sufficiently frightened, Mother Nature dealt progressives a devastating setback. In December 2015, rain returned to California, lots of rain, something that wasn’t supposed to happen unless massive new taxes were enacted.

By spring 2016, Lake Almaden was back at full capacity, exactly where it was in 2011, and exactly where voters were told it would never be again unless they submitted to crushing new taxation. According to the Santa Clara County Water District, as of May 1 of this year, Almaden and other reservoirs in the District were at 106% of historical average capacity.

Contrary to what progressives would have you believe, even the most severe droughts eventually end. And even though they know better, progressives would also have you believe another Big Lie, that extreme droughts were scarce as hen’s teeth until man began burning fossil fuels.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Nothing.

Ancient mega-droughts

Here’s part of California’s drought history that progressives try to hide at all costs: Studies of tree rings, sediment and other natural evidence have documented multiple extreme droughts in California over the last 1,0000+ years, including several that lasted more than 20 years–that’s FIVE TIMES longer than the relatively puny 4-year drought of 2012-15.

Twenty years is a long time, but some California droughts lasted even longer. Much longer.

One that began in the year 850 AD droned on for a staggering 240 years, and that mega-drought occurred 1,140 years before progressives of the 1980s invented the climate crisis industry out of whole cloth.

The drought of 850 wasn’t alone. Fifty years before it began, another mega-drought, one that lasted 180 years, was just winding down. Here’s an inconvenient truth progressives will never share with you: the region now known as California has been plagued for eons by extreme droughts, 100% of which eventually came to an end.

Why won’t Democrats tell you about California’s drought history? Because it would blow a hole bigger than Grand Canyon in another Big Lie they repeatedly tell, that extreme weather events in recent years are worse than at any time in Earth’s history.

Not a single one of their apocalyptic climate predictions has even come close to happening, yet they keep using Lenin’s teaching that a lie repeated often enough becomes the truth.

The Cult of Davos

“Davos”, the joke goes, “is where billionaires tell millionaires what the middle class thinks.”

The mega-elites in Davos have invested completely in climate, prompting CFACT policy advisor Joanne Nova to describe the gathering as, “what it would look like if a doomsday cult had a billion dollars to spend on a skiing holiday.”

Headlining Davos this year were the comedy team of Kerry and Gore.

Gore’s global warming exaggeration traveled far beyond the pale:

We’re still putting 162 million tons into it every single day, and the accumulated amount is now trapping as much extra heat as would be released by 600,000 Hiroshima class atomic bombs exploding every single day on the Earth… That’s what’s boiling the oceans, creating these atmospheric rivers and the rain bombs and sucking the moisture out of the land and creating the droughts and melting the ice and raising the sea level and causing these waves of climate refugees predicted to reach 1 billion in this century… Look at the xenophobia and political authoritarian trends that have come from just a few million refugees. What about a billion? We would lose our capacity for self governance on this world.

Phew!  Have you been to the ocean lately?  Was it “boiling?”

Maybe Gore and the Davos crowd are confusing the ocean with the hot tubs at their swanky resorts (although hot tubs don’t “boil” either).

Kerry tried to one-up Gore with bizarre rhetoric which soared right off the planet.

“It’s so… almost extra-terrestrial to think about, saving the planet.” President Biden’s Climate Envoy said, “If you say that to most people, they think you’re just a crazy tree hugging and lefty liberal, you know, do-gooder, whatever.”

Kerry’s “most people” are absolutely right about him.

Could Kerry and Gore be any more out of touch with climate reality or the hard-working Americans they purport to speak for?

CFACT’s Marc Morano summed up Davos perfectly on Dan Bongino’s Show on Fox saying, “We’re living in a time now where conspiracy realities outnumber conspiracy theories.”

The Latest Madness: Coffee Is Contributing To Climate Change

Researchers Claim Coffee Is Contributing To Climate Change

By Anthony Scott, Gateway Pundit, January 19, 2023:

First red meat, then gas stoves, and now coffee.

Researchers from Canada are currently analyzing coffee’s “contribution to climate change”.

The new analysis was published by researchers from the University of Quebec at Chicoutimi in a piece titled “Here’s how your cup of coffee contributes to climate change”

In their analysis researchers concluded “Limiting your contribution to climate change requires an adapted diet, and coffee is no exception. Choosing a mode of coffee preparation that emits less GHGs (greenhouse gases) and moderating your consumption are part of the solution.”

In their study, the researchers compared the climate impact of traditional filter coffee, Encapsulated filter coffee, Brewed coffee (French Press) and Soluble coffee (instant coffee).

The study concluded traditional coffee has the highest carbon footprint.

Unhinged in Davos: Kerry Likens Self to ‘Extraterrestrial’ Here to ‘Save the Planet’

Gore blames ‘climate change’ for Xenophobia.


Watch: John Kerry Says WEF Davos Elite Are Like ‘Extraterrestrials’ Here to ‘Save the Planet’ – Touts himself as one of a ‘select group of human beings’

John Kerry at the World Economic Forum:

“And when you stop and think about it, it’s pretty extraordinary that we select group of human beings…are able to sit in a room and come together and actually talk about saving the planet. I mean, it’s so almost extraterrestrial to think about quote ‘saving the planet.’ If you said that to most people, most people they think you’re just a crazy tree-hugging lefty, liberal, you know, do-gooder or whatever, and, and there’s no relationship. But really, that’s where we are.”

Marc Morano comment:

“Kerry and the World Economic Forum, the UN, and Al Gore all seem to believe they are the chosen ones to save the planet. But, Kerry actually said something we can all agree with when he noted, ‘most people they think you’re just a crazy tree-hugging lefty, liberal’. Yes, Kerry is correct, most people do think that.

We have heard this type of elitism before. See: Klaus Schwab At 2022 WEF: ‘The Future Is Built By Us, By A Powerful Community As You Here In This Room’Klaus Schwab Opens the 2023 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting with a Call to “Master the Future”

Morano: “The Great Reset crowd assembling in Davos genuinely believe themselves to be above the rest of humanity and are able to own multiple mansions and fly private jets while spewing ‘saving the planet’ rhetoric or even picking up environmental awards.

Kerry may be on to something! Kerry’s friend and fellow climate activist Al Gore was born nearly nine months after the Roswell, New Mexico incident, so there may be a linkage to Extraterrestrials! The Roswell incident was on July 8, 1947. Al Gore was born on March 31, 1948.”

Flashback 2015: Aliens Could Attack Earth to End Global Warming, NASA Scientist Frets – The thought-provoking scenario is one of many envisaged in a joint study by Penn State and the NASA Planetary Science Division, entitled “Would Contact with Extraterrestrials Benefit or Harm Humanity? A Scenario Analysis.”

Flashback: Activists compare climate change to alien attack: Former Calif Gov. Jerry Brown: ‘This is almost like we’re suffering an attack from Mars’ & MSNBC’s Joy Reid: If ‘aliens…come & attack us, it’s going to be because we destroyed the planet’

Flashback: UN IPCC Chief Pachauri okes about sending climate skeptics to outer space — ‘When leaders are unable to deal with reality, they just get the critics sent somewhere else’

Money, including philanthropic capital, is key to tackling climate crisis, John Kerry, Al Gore tell World Economic Forum – “The lesson I’ve learned in the last years … is money, money, money,” Kerry said during a panel discussion. “One of the keys to this is philanthropy and public money. But there is no way we can win this battle without partnerships [with the private sector].”

‘Enough already! Enough!’ Watch: Al Gore at WEF Davos rants ‘we need desperately to scale down anti-climate finance’

Islamic Republic of Iran: Leading Imam Says Drought Has Come Because Women Aren’t Wearing Hijab

This kind of magical thinking lends itself to fanaticism. If one assumes that Allah is withholding rain because women aren’t wearing hijab (which must also be why it never, ever rains in non-Muslim countries), then one may also assume that one suffers any misfortune or setback in life because of disobedience to Allah. Someone who thinks that way will become ever more vigilant in his observance of Islam, and of course the pinnacle of observance of Islam is jihad.

A hadith has a Muslim asking Muhammad: “Instruct me as to such a deed as equals Jihad (in reward).” Muhammad replied, “I do not find such a deed.” (Bukhari 4.52.44)

Iran Imam Says Less Rain Result Of Women Without Hijab

Iran International, January 13, 2023 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The Supreme Leader’s representative in the city of Karaj says the reason for low precipitation in the country is a lack of hijab observance of hijab, after many women took off their veils following months of protests.

Mohammad-Mehdi Hosseini Hamedani, the Friday prayer imam of the city, reiterated that observance of hijab should be enforced strictly in society.

Describing anyone who unveils in public as an enemy, he emphasized that all such people must be confronted by the state. “It is not possible to imagine that we are living in an Islamic country when we enter some institutions, shopping malls, pharmacies, etc.!” he said, calling on the authorities to warn shops and malls that serve women who have removed their hijab and close them down if warnings did not suffice.

This is not the first time that the Islamic Republic’s hardliners are linking Islamic rituals to drought or natural disasters….

Prosecutor General Mohammad Jafar Montazeri in 2019 said, “The judicial system does not allow women to unveil in public, because it causes natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes in the country.”…

If I Wanted To Reshape The World To Have Fewer People →

It occurs to me that our failings in the past decades all have one thing in common. We consistently and with a flawless record, fail to think as big as the people creating the problems facing us. That is to say, when we oppose a line of effort against us, we always treat the problem or issue as presented. When in fact it’s larger, and part of a much bigger planed assault on ourselves.

Take Global Warming.

There are a few layers of opposition. Those who know the science is fabricated and argue the science and try and get people to understand that Global Warming by man’s actions simply isn’t a real thing. That has nearly no chance of succeeding, but its one level of activism people can do.

Then, there are those who think Global Warming is a dialectic device to take control of especially Western industrial man using control of CO2 production as a means of ending productivity, or at least being in full control of it. One may notice that no alternatives to create of energy, such as nuclear or other means can be allowed. Only the problem of CO2 must remain in the forefront as a means to shape the future. Even when there are multiple ways to create the needed energy without producing it. Bad solutions, like electric cars are encouraged. Sorry, not bad solutions, things that kinda sorta look like solutions but actually make no difference or add to the problem and create new ones.

But a real psychopath might take it to the next level.

Imagine being so committed to the idea that the world has too many people on it that you needed to embark on a serious plan to reduce the world’s population.

Imagine that you had convinced enough people that the world was warming, despite all the evidence to the contrary, to the point that no one would interfere with a plan to geo-engineer the atmosphere to block out solar radiation for a time that would significantly cool the Earth.

Imagine that you had managed to get millions of people from warm parts of the Earth to move to cooler parts, even though it would multiply their carbon footprint by a factor of FOUR and the resources needed for life are far greater for each individual in say, Canada than in Namibia.

Imagine that the people doing the geo-engineering to “solve Global Warming” know damn well it isn’t happening. They would also then know that a warmer Earth means more food and more plant life and more animal life. Especially if the level of CO2 goes up a few more parts per billion.

So what would happen to the available food supply if the temperature of the Earth’s most productive growing regions fell by a few degrees?

Media Blackout Over Islamic Terror Attack At Vegas Solar Power Plant

A Muslim is facing terror-related charges after police said he rammed his car through a gate at a solar plant outside Las Vegas and set his car on fire, disabling the huge facility, the 8 News Now Investigators have learned. Nothing to see here. No media coverage – even though it was a SOLAR plant.

Las Vegas Metro police responded to the solar plant on U.S. 93 north of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, sources told the 8 News Now Investigators. Employees at the plant said they found a car smoldering in a generator pit. The Mega Solar Array facility provides energy to MGM properties but is run by a company called Invenergy.

The driver, later identified as Mohammad Mesmarian, 34, is accused of ramming through a fence and setting the car on fire. The car is registered out of Idaho, documents said.

Mesmarian faces charges of committing an act of terrorism, arson, destroying or injuring real or personal property…..

Media Blackout Over Terror Incident At Vegas Power Plant

by Tyler Durden, Zero Hedge, Jan 07, 2023:

The US power grid is under attack as extremists shoot, sabotage, and vandalize electrical equipment at power stations. One of the highest-profile attacks was when two men used guns to paralyze a substation in Washington state on Christmas Day, leaving thousands without electricity. The incident made national news, but strangely enough, another attack last week on the Las Vegas power grid went unnoticed by the national press.

Mohammad Mesmarian, 34, rammed his car through the gate of a solar power generation plant outside Las Vegas on Wednesday and set his car on fire, intending to damage a massive transformer, 8 News Now reported.

“Employees at the plant said they found a car smoldering in a generator pit,” 8 News Now said, adding the Mega Solar Array facility provides power to 13 properties on the Las Vegas Strip, all belonging to MGM Resorts.

Investigators believe Mesmarian “siphoned gasoline from his car to put on wires at the transformer,” 8 News Now said, citing documents from investigators.

“Mesmarian clarified he burned the Toyota Camry,” police said. “Mesmarian said he burned the vehicle at a Tesla solar plant and did it ‘for the future.'”

Here’s security camera footage of Mesmarian lighting his car on fire next to a giant transformer.

Here Is The Climate Cult’s True Agenda

With the Biden administration’s latest bid to ban gas stoves, many Americans might be asking themselves where they came up with this one. As usual, climate change is one of the culprits – despite Snopes telling you otherwise. This campaign comes as businesses argue it would annihilate the restaurant industry and drive up consumer prices. But that might be exactly the point.

Climate alarmism is calculated to achieve a series of goals that for too long have been considered the domain of “conspiracy theorists.” It’s easy to dismiss them as craziness when we’re treated to spectacles of activists gluing their nipples to pavement or defacing priceless works of Western art.

But ignore the theater and look at a blueprint for climate goals: the C40 2019 report titled “The Future Of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World.”

C40 defines itself as an alliance of “mayors and [their] cities … taking ambitious, collaborative and urgent climate action that aligns with science-backed targets.” It includes New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles – you know – the usual suspects. The World Economic Forum (WEF) gives it a platform, so you know it’s going to be good.

The report says people must reduce consumption to “mitigate climate change.” So far, no problem. After all, in consumerist America, the amount of polluting junk that ends up in landfills boggles the mind. But that’s not what C40 has in mind.

Instead, C40 calls for phasing out all meat and dairy consumption by the year 2030. Fortunately, the WEF has a solution: Eat the bugs. It’s more eco-friendly than raising livestock for meat and milk.

Now on to air travel. The C40 project calls for citizens to only take “1 short haul return flight (less than 1500 km) every three years per person.” That means you get one ~1,000-mile flight – a little more than a flight between Chicago and New York City. No more international travel for you.

As for cars, the goal is a grand total of zero private vehicles. For clothing, you get a total of three new clothing items per year, all by 2030.

Now, skeptics will say there is no way anyone will sign on to this. And they would be correct. That is where the coercive hands of government, “philanthropy” and the private sector combine to screw you over.

Americans can look to Europe for what the Biden administration is planning here. France has already banned short-haul domestic flights within the country. In the Netherlands, the government has moved to close nearly 12,000 family farms and cut the livestock capacity of roughly another 18,000. And if a buyout doesn’t work, the Dutch government has indicated it will expropriate the properties.

In America, such measures are already under consideration. Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, for all his incompetence in handling the various air crises, appears a willing player in this climate power grab, floating a mileage tax allegedly to help pay for infrastructure. However, anyone paying attention will realize that taxing mileage will disincentivize car ownership and aid towards the goal of zero private vehicles. When AOC talks about cow farts, she may sound stupid, but she is unwittingly pushing the same agenda as in the Netherlands.

And if people resist, there’s always the corporations ready to cut you off. Mastercard is already pioneering such an experiment with a “carbon limit” credit card (which is voluntary for now) that cuts your purchases off if you exceed your monthly limit. And the calculation tool is available to other banks, too. It’s not just Mastercard. Look at the list of the WEF’s partners and see how many brands you recognize that are involved in this “Great Reset.” This is how the C40 goals will be enforced. You will comply or be cut off from the financial system.

And if you think that’s bad, just wait until the Federal Reserve rolls out central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) to control and block any transaction you make. Sound like something out of Communist China? That’s because it is. It’s exactly how the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) social credit system is designed.

Yet, none of the climate alarmists follow these suggestions. When John Kerry visits Davos, Switzerland, for the WEF summit, he will be flying ~4,000 miles, likely on a gas-guzzling private jet. Davos attendees certainly won’t be eating the bugs. Despite touting a meatless menu, there will still be the option of steaks at expensive Swiss restaurants. And if and when global emissions regulations do kick in, they will always have the option of buying carbon credits to increase their allowances.

And the worst part is that none of this is a “conspiracy theory.” It’s all documented and suggests these guys have nothing but contempt for you. Just look at what they say vs. what they do. Jill Biden gets to use a gas stove, but you don’t. Ted Turner gets to have five children, but you only get one. Bill Gates gets a massive yacht, Kerry gets his private jet and Al Gore gets his mansion, but you get to fly once every three years, live in a pod and eat the bugs.

Pay no attention to the crazy climate activists. They are simply a cover for this agenda which certainly seems hellbent on making sure you own nothing and are happy.

Washington Post Now Claims Climate Is ‘Not Warming’ But It’s ‘WORSE For the Planet!’

So here we how, thirty years of this manure and it’s never mind, but wait, it’s worse than that!

They shit on you with impunity. They are destroying everything we value in our civilization with this insulting, contemptuous lie.

A new climate reality: Less warming, but worse impacts on the planet

The most severe climate change scenarios now appear less likely, but extremes are nonetheless poised to overwhelm societies, scientists say

By Scott Dance, Washington Post, January 6, 2023:

In the not-so-distant past, scientists predicted that global temperatures would surge dramatically throughout this century, assuming that humans would rely heavily on fossil fuels for decades. But they are revising their forecasts as they track both signs of progress and unexpected hazards.

Accelerating solar and wind energy adoption means global warming probably will not reach the extremes once feared, climate scientists say. At the same time, recent heat, storms and ecological disasters prove, they say, that climate change impacts could be more severe than predicted even with less warming.

Researchers are increasingly worried about the degree to which even less-than-extreme increases in global temperatures will intensify heat and storms, irreversibly destabilize natural systems and overwhelm even highly developed societies. Extremes considered virtually impossible not long ago are already occurring.

Scientists pointed to recent signs of societies’ fragility: drought contributing to the Arab Spring uprisings; California narrowly avoiding widespread blackouts amid record-high temperatures; heat waves killing tens of thousands of people each year, including in Europe, the planet’s most developed continent.

It’s an indication that — even with successful efforts to reduce emissions and limit global warming — these dramatic swings could devastate many stable societies sooner, and more often, than previously expected.

“We see already that extremes are bringing about catastrophe,” said Claudia Tebaldi, an earth scientist at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Wash. “The question is: How are we going to possibly adapt and lower the risk by turning the dial of what we can control?”
