The Cost Of ‘Climate Action’: $5.2 Trillion To Avert 0.2 Degrees Of Warming

The United Nations is demanding more “climate action,” urging member countries to mobilize trillions of dollars more to fight man-made global warming.

UN climate chief Patricia Espinosa said “the very fabric of life on Earth is under threat” from global warming “We must act right here, right now,” Espinosa told delegates and activists gathered in Bonn, Germany for another round of climate talks.

26 teenage women were found dead at sea. Italian officials wonder if they were killed.

The gruesome discovery Sunday of the bodies of more than two dozen migrant women in the Mediterranean Sea has left Italian officials wondering whether the women were purposely killed, and why all who died were female.

Lorena Ciccotti, police chief in the southern Italian port city of Salerno, told CNN that officials have launched an investigation into the women’s cause of the death to see if they had been tortured or sexually assaulted. Officials believe the 26 women, who are all Nigerian and range from 14 to 18 years old, died attempting the dangerous journey from Libya to Europe over the weekend.

Toronto councillor asks if city can prohibit ‘hate-sponsored rallies’

In an administrative inquiry at a council meeting that starts today, Ward 10 Coun. James Pasternak is asking the deputy city manager to look into what can be done to prohibit white supremacist or neo-Nazi rallies and other demonstrations that incite hatred and violence on City or provincial property.

“Do the Toronto Police Service or City of Toronto have ability and what resources could they utilize to prohibit a rally that is inciting hatred and violence?” Pasternak’s submission read.

Small kirpans permitted on flights under new Transport Canada rules

The World Sikh Organization of Canada on Monday welcomed the decision by Transport Canada to allow blades of up to 6 cm in length on domestic and international flights in Canada. As of November 27, kirpans with blades of up to 6 cm will be permitted on Canadian flights.

Earlier this year, the WSO had reached out to Transport Canada encouraging the adoption of the international standard so that Sikhs wearing the kirpan could be accommodated.

The Twitter comments are worth reading

    Austin is the Toronto of Texas – everything is a “black assault rifle”.

    • Hard Little Machine

      Austin has a highway system built for a city the size of Tokyo. Worst implementation I have ever seen.

    I thought gambling is haram.
    The father of a convicted money launderer bought a £412,000 house with money he claimed he won with 123 prize-winning lottery tickets. Malik Abdullah Farooq, 81, said he enjoyed the incredible run of fortune on the Pakistan Prize Bond Draw between July 2012 and February 2013.
    Winners of the Pakistan state lottery have to wait several weeks to collect their winnings. Because of that, some sell their winning ticket to a black-market agent at a discount. The black-market agents then sell on the winning tickets – for more than they are worth – to crooks needing to clean their criminal money, who get prize organisers to issue payment in their name.

      Enjoy? I couldn’t take it anymore after about 20 minutes. It was like being in Hell and I just had to stop it. I’m surprised at Rubin’s ability to sit there and remain calm/sane. Also, that tranny has so many mannerisms – constantly stroking its hair, adjusting the set of its shoulders etc. – that I began watching (predictively) for them and lost track of the discussion (if that is what you call it). I find my response to this video more interesting than the video itself. After 20 minutes, I liked myself more than ever for being so fucking sane………

  • “…what can be done to prohibit white supremacist or neo-Nazi rallies and
    other demonstrations that incite hatred and violence on City or provincial property.”

    I guess they must be referring to militants in the Gay Pride parade — the “pink Nazis” et alia. Because as I rack the deepest recesses of my memory, I honestly can’t recall ever seeing anything that even reeks of a neo-Nazi or white supremacist rally on City or provincial property before, except events by the militant fascist Left sponsored and paid for by these Governments (using our taxpayer money).

    • Editor

      Yes. I was also wondering how and by whom will “white supremacist or neo-Nazi” be defined. Using your or City Hall’s staff fee-fees, Mr Pasternak?

  • OT, but did anyone else watch Trump’s speech from South Korea late last night? It was the speech on Communism that I have been waiting for my entire life to hear from any Politician. It should be included in the course material of every Secondary School in the West.

    Rotherham, where mahometan men cover their faces.
    A group of three men plied a 13-year-old girl with alcohol before “passing her around” and sexually assaulting her in a graveyard and a carpark, a court has heard.

    The National Post has a major story on how the Liberal government is expecting a flood of Central American refugees during the Winter. Yes, we can look forward to gang bangers, drug dealers and other assorted parasites, thanks to Super Socks. And little Justin is on his way to communist Vietnam. The media is reporting that he wants to strengthen ties with the commies, and will talk primarily about homosexual, trans gender rights, women’s equity, and global warming. He won’t be wasting his time attending Remembrance Day ceremonies for dead white men here in Canada.

    • Observing from afar, these aren’t refugees. The civil wars in Central America have been over for more than 25 years — all the countries are more or less democratized, Police civilianized and military under elected government control (possible exception Nicaragua for the latter).

      The problem is the Mexican and Colombian drug cartels and street gangs who are laying waste to entire communities. And the problem is local law enforcement who are easily bribed — humongous amounts of drug money floating around. But more importantly the problem is the civilian population is disarmed — seems the only people carrying guns are the criminals.

      It was never like that before — even women used to carry the small “ladies pistols” in their purses for self-defense. Hence, criminals were careful about who they messed with — street punks would get a bullet in the head, and Police would back up law-abiding civilians defending themselves.

      Again, observing from afar, it seems to me that the change in gun rules came from foreign Left-wing NGO’s who pressured their Governments to cease giving foreign aid unless guns were severely restricted. But I’ll find out better when I get there.

    “Bacon juice”? Just fry your bacon and you’ll have plenty of juice. My mother used to save bacon fat from breakfast, then remelted it and poured it on our dogs’ hard food. They loved it! (Oh, and lived to a very healthy, ripe old age, not coincidentally.)

    I also read two books where only the military and police had firearms.

    They were called “The Iron Heel” and “1984”…
