For more than 50 years, members of the scientific community and environmental movement have made climate change predictions that ultimately turned out to be incorrect. Many of these predictions have been embraced by prominent Democrats over the years. President Joe Biden’s climate czar John Kerry is the latest Democrat to promote predictions of impending global disaster. He said during an appearance last week on “CBS This Morning” that the world only has nine years left to avert a climate catastrophe. Today, the U.S. officially rejoins the Paris Climate Accord. America is the second largest emitter behind China of greenhouse gases that are warming the planet. @BensTracy spoke exclusively with former Sec. of State @JohnKerry , who is now the Biden admin’s @ClimateEnvoy . pic.twitter.com/axnOvMOLp6 — CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) February 19, 2021 That number was based on a 2018 projection that global temperature increases would become irreversible by … [Read more...] about Democrats Keep Getting Their Climate Change Doomsday Predictions Wrong

A Republican lawmaker facing a tough re-election campaign will introduce a bill to replace the federal gas tax with a tax on greenhouse gas emissions from industrial activities, according to plans obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation. Florida Rep. Carlos Curbelo’s draft legislation would slap a $23 per ton tax on carbon dioxide emissions on a range of industrial activities, from refining to coal mining, the revenue of which would mostly go towards highway funding. (Here’s A Summary Of Curbelo’s Draft Carbon Tax Legislation) The draft legislation would also direct some funding towards offsetting higher energy costs for poor families, funding global warming adaptation programs and compensating energy workers who lose their jobs. The bill also puts a moratorium on some environmental regulations, though reining in regulations is contingent upon the country meeting emissions reductions goals.

Republican “populists” are on the wrong side of this fight. Photo: J Scott Applewhite/AP/Shutterstock For many left-wing pundits, America’s partisan divide in 2021 is defined by its lack of a strong material basis . After all, a voter’s income level tells you less about her political allegiances today than it has for most of our nation’s modern history . In 2020, some of the wealthiest Zip Codes in the United States backed the party of organized labor by a landslide margin, while some of the poorest broke overwhelmingly for the party of libertarian billionaires. The ties that bind blue America’s tech entrepreneurs to its nonwhite gig workers — or red America’s oil barons to its white rural poor — are those of culture , not economics. Democrats stand for a multiethnic conception of American identity, secularism, cosmopolitanism, racial justice, and gender equality; Republicans, for a normatively white and Christian America, the patriarchal family, and zero-sum nationalism. … [Read more...] about The $15 Minimum-Wage Debate Clarifies the Partisan Economic Divide
China’s economic recovery is notable, some analysts say, after suffering serious pandemic-driven setbacks for the majority of last year. By most accounts, China’s economic numbers at the start of its lunar new year in early February was more significant than those put out by governments in other developed countries. “China’s policy to control the pandemic was very strict. Also, the capillarity of the Communist Party made the implementation of these strict measures easier than in other parts of the world,” Lourdes Casanova, director of Cornell’s Emerging Markets Institute, told VOA. The situation has been different in many democratic countries that found it difficult to use harsh measures to control the spread of the disease and impose lockdown as a tool to enforce social distancing. China’s gross domestic product expanded by 6.5% in the fourth quarter of 2020. The economy grew 2.3% in 2020, according to Chinese government data. The turnaround has surprised economists because … [Read more...] about China Posts Impressive Economic Recovery, but Can Growth Continue?
