Official Report: People Who Worry Most
about Climate Change Use More Energy

Breitbart London [UK], by Nick Hallett

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 7/15/2014 11:54:08 PM

People who are most concerned about climate change use more electricity than those who believe it to be not so serious a threat, a government study has found. The Household Electricity Survey, commissioned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change, said that this discrepancy may be due to the fact that older people, who are most likely to not see climate change as a threat, are generally more frugal with their energy consumption: [Snip] However, even with over-65s removed, there is still only a weak trend suggesting that people who profess to care about the environment actually do more

They had better slow down. They might overheat themselves, have a stroke and die.

The poor should have smaller TVs, the wealthy smaller refrigerators. Never mind the fact that the wealthy might well have several homes.

This is all about control.

Gaza: Two die in Israeli strikes
as ´new truce floated´
BBC News [UK], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 8/25/2014 9:29:12 AM     Post Reply
The Israeli military has carried out a new round of air strikes in Gaza, as Palestinian militants continue to fire rockets and mortars into Israel. Two people were killed as two mosques and the Rafah border crossing were targeted, Palestinian officials said. Meanwhile, efforts have been stepped up to end the six weeks of fighting that have left more than 2,100 people dead. Egyptian mediators have reportedly proposed a new ceasefire deal that would see Gaza´s crossings opened. According to the initiative, aid and reconstruction materials would be allowed in while talks took place to resolve contentious issues that had prevented a long-term truce

   

 

  


 
‘Stop benefits of IS fighter families’:

It is one of a series of measures being considered by the Government to stop would-be extremists travelling to the ­Middle East and threatening the security of Britons when they return home. Belgium and Australia have already introduced similar legislation and last month the idea was included by a think-tank as part of a series of recommendations on counter-terrorism measures in a report to US Homeland Security. Home Secretary Theresa May has vowed that the Government will give itself “all the legal powers” necessary to prevail against the threat of terrorism here and last night a senior Coalition source demanded benefits be

Let’s assume he is indeed who he sounds like--another deluded British-born jihadi. [Snip] Young men such as this killer are famously told that if they die in “battle” they will be welcomed in heaven by the sexual ministrations of 72 virgins. Many of them believe it--even though scholars have suggested that the reference to “black-eyed virgins” is in fact a promise of 72 raisins. I suspect most of us don’t give a monkey’s what happens to this prat in heaven, whether he meets virgins or raisins--we just want someone to come along with a bunker-buster and effect an introduction as

The father of the man suspected of being ´Jihadi John´ is accused of being one of Osama bin Laden´s top lieutenants and is currently awaiting trial in the US for his part in the bombing of two US embassies in which 224 people died, MailOnline can reveal. Adel Abdel Bari, 54, is now locked up in New York awaiting trial for the bombing of the embassies in Kenya and Tanzania after being extradited from Britain along with hook-handed cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri. Bari was allowed entry into the UK when he was granted political asylum from his native Egypt in

In a a world where Islamic Barbarism and Savagery has reached all time new levels with the beheading of the American journalist James Foley. It was not that long ago that Abu Abbas of the Palestine Liberation Front hijacked the tourist filled Achille Lauro Cruise Ship and murdered in cold blood Leon Klinghoffer and threw him overboard with his wheelchair. To pour salt on an open wound the New York based Metropolitan Opera run by Peter Gelb has outrageously decided to run an Opera with music by John Adams entitled, "The Death of Klinghoffer" despite heavy criticism from the Klinghoffer Family

An Englishman on holiday in Spain a century ago found a country with little to recommend it. Waking up on the first morning and consulting his guide book, he would have read the following description: ‘Spain is a bleak and often arid land, with few traces of picturesqueness.’ The towns, the guide continues, are wreathed in tobacco smoke and the cafes are ‘very deficient in comfort and cleanliness’. [Snip] In the Spanish countryside there is great danger of highway robbery, while in the cities the police will arrest anyone they can lay their hands on.

Bruce Blakeman, a candidate for the Fourth Congressional District of New York, will be visiting Israel this week. Ahead of the visit, Blakeman and Congressman Peter King, who will be part of the trip as well, told Arutz Sheva that they support Israel’s right to defend itself from Hamas’s rocket attacks. “Hamas is a deadly enemy. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East. It’s our strongest ally in the Middle East, if not the entire world, and we should not be putting any restrictions on Israel at all,” said King, who added that he was disappointed in President Barack

Richard Attenborough, the British actor and film director, has died at the age of 90. Lord Attenborough´s son Michael confirmed that he died at lunchtime yesterday, just five days away from his 91st birthday.

Prime Minister David Cameron said he ´was one of the greats of cinema´.

A tropical depression formed over the Turks and Caicos Islands on Saturday after drenching Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, and could become a hurricane as it moves over the warm open waters near the Bahamas, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) said. A tropical storm warning was issued for the Turks and Caicos islands and the southeast and central Bahamas as the weather system passed about 75 miles (120 km) northeast of Great Inagua island, with winds gusting over 35 miles an hour (55 km per hour).

Iran´s Revolutionary Guards have shot down a radar-evading Israeli spy drone that was trying to penetrate Iran´s Natanz nuclear enrichment site, state news agency ISNA said on Sunday, quoting the Revolutionary Guards. "The downed aircraft was of the stealth, radar-evasive type and it intended to penetrate the off-limit nuclear area in Natanz... but was targeted by a ground-to-air missile before it managed to enter the area," ISNA said, citing a statement by the Revolutionary Guards. The Israeli military said it did not comment on foreign reports. Israel and the West suspect Iran of planning to build a nuclear bomb. In the

The 30-second earthquake struck just before 3:30am about 10 miles northwest of American Canyon, which is about 6 miles southwest of Napa, in California wine country, Leslie Gordon of the U.S. Geological Survey said. It´s the largest earthquake to shake the Bay Area since the 6.9 magnitude Loma Prieta quake in 1989, the USGS said. The shaking set off car alarms and had residents of neighboring Sonoma County running out of their houses in the middle of

Local Winooski, Vermont restaurant Sneakers Bistro has removed a sign that read, “Yield Sneakers Bacon” citing opposition from a Muslim community member and safety concerns. The sign was put up as part of a city program that allows businesses to post an advertisement in an area where they have helped maintain city flowerbeds. The sign that read “Yield Sneakers Bacon” was removed after a woman, identifying herself as a Muslim, posted in an online community forum, stating she was personally offended by the sign, according to a WPTZ News report.

Sometimes a round of golf is just a round of golf. And sometimes it reveals the ­essence of a man. President Obama’s decision to hit the links and yuk it up with pals immediately after speaking about the beheading of James ­Foley was no ordinary mistake. Nor was it a simple gaffe. The decision continues to cause an uproar because, like an X-ray, there is no escaping the image. It shows there is no there there. With even his media praetorian guard appalled, the golf outing is sparking a wider understanding that Obama is hollow, empty of the routine qualities Americans expect from

At last, we know the reason why comedy writers don’t make fun of President Obama much. It turns out the man is completely unmockable. We learn this from Jim Downey, the longtime “Saturday Night Live” specialist in political japery. “If I had to describe Obama as a comedy project, I would say, ‘Degree of difficulty, 10 point 10,’” the writer says in the expanded new edition of the “SNL” oral history book, “Live from New York.” “It’s like being a rock climber looking up at a thousand-foot-high face of solid obsidian, polished and oiled,” Downey says. “There’s not a single thing to grab

According to a new Sunday Times report by Toby Harden, "Pentagon sources said Foley and the others might well have been rescued but Obama, concerned about the ramifications of US troops being killed or captured in Syria, took too long to authorise the mission." It´s claimed that Obama was concerned about his administration being Carterized had the mission failed. For President Barack Obama the decision to send in the Night Stalkers was an agonising one.

FORE! Score? And seven trillion rounds ago, our forecaddies brought forth on this continent a new playground, conceived by Robert Trent Jones, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal when it comes to spending as much time on the links as possible — even when it seems totally inappropriate, like moments after making a solemn statement condemning the grisly murder of a 40-year-old American journalist beheaded by ISIL. I know reporters didn’t get a chance to ask questions, but I had to bounce. I had a 1 p.m. tee time at Vineyard Golf Club with Alonzo

Back in 1968, when I was 30, my entire life blew up. I had a life plan and it collapsed for no rational reason. I had been a newspaper reporter in New York but left the job to help editor Clay Felker start New York magazine. My marriage was breaking up and I was falling in love with Clay. The song that carried me through those years and all stages of my life is "Both Sides Now" by Joni Mitchell. I first heard the song in 1968, when Judy Collins´s version was a huge radio hit.

We are not engaged in a religious war. This is not a confrontation between Islam and the West. To start from that premise is to place Isil (which should not be called by its presumptive title “Islamic State”) on precisely the ground it wishes to occupy. [Snip] The contest is not modern liberal democracy versus the Dark Ages. This is to impose meaning on what is, in truth, meaningless. There is nothing coherent or comprehensible at the heart of the homicidal Isil frenzy. It is just what it looks like: psychopathic nihilism. Indeed, it may be worse than counterproductive to

Civil rights activist and MSNBC host Al Sharpton compared his relationship with President Barack Obama to the relationship between President Abraham Lincoln and abolitionist and famed orator Frederick Douglass. On NBC’s “Meet The Press” on Sunday, Chris Jansing asked Sharpton about a recent article in Politico Magazine labeling him a “surrogate” for Obama’s White House regarding race relations. “First of all, I’m not a surrogate,” he contended. “I have access to the White House in every era going back to Lincoln with Frederick Douglass. Presidents talk to those that were leading at that time.” “Not comparing Marc Morial or Melanie Campbell and I

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

America has a deficit of workers. Willing workers. Capable workers. Skilled, or at least semi-skilled workers, who can do a job and do it well. There are at least one million jobs that go begging day after day if only employers could find workers to fill them. This probably seems hard-to-believe. After all, how can America have a worker shortage when we have about 18 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed? When the real unemployment rate is 12 percent? (Snip) But there are also millions of unemployed Americans who don’t have the skill sets to match what employers are in need

Rep. Paul Ryan said the notion that the House could have unilaterally stopped Obamacare through a government shutdown last year was not a plausible idea to sell the country on. The Wisconsin Republican was addressing a passage from his new book on CBS’s “Face the Nation” in which he described last year’s push toward a government shutdown — in which House conservatives unsuccessfully tried to defund Obamacare — as a “suicide mission.” The purpose of the passage in the book is to try to unify the party, he said, noting that he held back a bit more at the time with party unity in mind. “I don’t think we can succeed if all we do is
