The idea that polluters should pay reparations for climate change is gaining steam among advocates. Some environmentalists and academics argue the companies or states that are most significantly contributing to the climate crisis should be made to compensate the people bearing the brunt of its impacts. Advocates have been calling for such reparations for years, especially since evidence emerged that fossil fuel companies were aware of the impact of carbon emissions. But the idea is now more practically achievable due to scientific advances, said Adrien Salazar, policy director at the nonprofit Grassroots Global Justice. He pointed to the increased sophistication

Stupidity, mental issues, deranged -- are just some of the words that describe the irrational climate activists who want to get rid or damage the oil industry

Stop. The. Insanity. But while we're on the subject, how about reparations for having corn syrup added to our food in the '70's. It's even in toothpaste.

This is classic. The climate hysterics expect big oil to pay in advance for climate tragedies that their hyperbolic models say are yet to come, even though there is no definitive link between carbon emissions and weather events that have occurred throughout human history.

If they despise Whitey as much as they claim, they are FREE to return to their AFRICAN homeland. No one will inhibit their exit.

I remember reading about the effects of higher levels of CO2 in the late 70's or early 80's. Research proved that higher levels of CO2, about 3 to 4 times today's level, dramatically increased plant growth and food production. The idiots and greedy thieves demanding climate reparations have already received tremendous benefits in the form of an abundant food supply and affordable grocery prices. They have to look no further than todays skyrocketing food prices to see the "benefits" of their "modern" so-called science.

Descendants of slaveholders should receive reparations from the gov for taking of private property. Sunlovers she get reparations from the jet plane industry for high altitude contrails that diminish the sunlight. Every traffic incident, every motorcade that causes a jam should unleash reparations for the inconvenience of being blocked. All books and movies that are not perfectly balanced across 157 genres, 179 national origins, etc need to be burned. This will continue until nothing is left

Have someone explain to these people what New York City was like before the automobile. Even with a fraction of today's population, the people were ankle deep in horse puckey and disease and flies were rampant. In the 80s, I stopped at a local sawmill to order some wood. they had an article pasted to the counter with details of the standing timber in the country over the previous 100 years. We had twice as much standing timber as the country had in 1900. Thank gas and coal. Of course, to grow enough corn to meet ethanol standards, a lot of trees had to be chopped down. Further, that land was 'marginal' for agriculture meaning more fertilizers than usual had to be used. The maximum size of the Gulf of Mexico dead zone increased by 38%. Of course, that mean the left stopped reporting that. But, if ethanol did that, I ask you.... shouldn't THEY pay reparations????

They can do their part by giving up public transportation, their cars, electricity, paint and all plastic items. And since food is brought in trucks that use fossil fuels they need to grow their own food using hand tools, And since most medical treatments involve plastics in some measure, including prescription bottles and syringes, they will need to go to a witch doctor to be treated when they become ill from sun stroke while weeding their turnips.

Brandon Johnson fails his first ‘big

Last Thursday, Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson held an event with law enforcement personnel and other “community leaders” to unveil his Memorial Day weekend “safety plan.” Holiday weekends in Chicago are notoriously violent, so Johnson’s attempt to curb it constituted his first “big test” as mayor. The consistent and senseless violence on holiday weekends is also why it was disappointing to hear so little substance during the event. Johnson briefly discussed how the Office of Emergency Management and Communications would “monitor citywide events and weather conditions” and all relevant agencies would coordinate with one another. He also tweeted that Chicago police

After sales dropped for the sixth straight week, industry analysts are likening the backlash to Bud Light’s partnership with transgender influencer Dylan Mulvaney to what happened in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina. "This could be a promotional summer the likes we haven’t seen since after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, where there was so much beer inventory backed up in the trade that it initiated the price war of all price wars," Beer Business Daily said, explaining that "large price wars are often sparked by external events—in that case Hurricane Katrina, and in this case Hurricane Mulvaney."

A cursory examination of history reveals that the United States is mired in the same process that precipitated the collapse of the great empires of the past. The foibles and failures of human nature and their impact on the rise and fall of empires is amazingly consistent and the end result always inevitable. Can this nation avoid a similar fate? Empires are defined as great military and economic powers encompassing large occupied or controlled land areas. Although they vary greatly, they average around 250 years in duration. The United States will be celebrating its 250th anniversary in 2026.

At least nine people, including a one-year-old child and two other minors, were injured in a Memorial Day shooting on a packed Florida boardwalk. Authorities say a dispute between two groups ended in gunfire at around 6.45pm Monday in the area of the 1200 block of North Boardwalk in Hollywood Beach, north of Miami. One suspect has been detained, while another is still at large. An online video showed the moment gunfire erupted on the popular hotspot. The crowd frantically scattered for cover and away from danger when gunshots started to ring out near the Margaritaville resort.
