Breitbart UK and Jo Nova:
New estimates published by the Climate Change Business Journal put the total size of the industry at $1.5 trillion a year, or $4 billion a day, equivalent to the size of the global online retail market. The figure includes carbon markets, carbon consulting, biofuels, carbon sequestration, renewable technologies, eco buildings and hybrid cars.
The climate change consultancy market alone is worth $1.9 billion worldwide; $670 million in the United States, thanks to businesses need to keep on top of climate policy. And these figures are expected to more than double by 2020.
“Most industries this size exist because they produce something the market wants,” commented Nova. “They worry that competitors might chip into their market share, but they don’t worry that the market might disappear overnight. Normal industries fear that a “bad” political outcome might reduce profits by ten or twenty percent, and sometimes they donate “both ways”. But the climate industry has literally a trillion on the table that depends on big-government policy and election outcomes.
“So while The Guardian worries about the dark and evil influence of the fossil fuels industry they don’t seem at all concerned about the vested-monster-in-the-kitchen, the 1.5 Trillion Climate Industry. Ditto for the intrepid souls at the ABC/BBC/CBC who think they speak truth to power, but miss the most powerful lobby in the climate debate.”
If the Climate Change industry doesn’t produce anything the market wants, then neither does the Tobacco Control industry, which is probably just as big, if not bigger. With such giant leeches guzzling global taxes, is it any wonder that we’re in a global recession.
Meanwhile, The Donald rolls on. Sarah Palin:
It’s no surprise pundits and politicos are determined to destroy a candidacy they can’t control or shape with their mere words. Expect marginalization of anyone speaking well of Trump’s efforts. He’s a threat to the permanent political class. Non-traditional candidates always are because when they’re in touch with the people, they show their guts and just do the right thing.
Donald Trump isn’t afraid to say what needs to be said. Now the billionaire, television personality and presidential aspirant has a straightforward message for Christians.
“The Christians are being treated horribly because we have nobody to represent the Christians. Believe me, if I run and I win, I will be the greatest representative of the Christians they’ve had in a long time,” Trump said in a recent interview.
The Christian response in Charisma Magazine:
God began to speak to me concerning the destiny of Donald Trump in America. The Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “Trump shall become My trumpet to the American people, for he possesses qualities that are even hard to find in My people these days….”
The flaperon may not have been the first piece of flight MH370 to arrive at Reunion. Seats and full suitcases have been spotted. And have all been burned:
…hundreds of items could have been washing up on Reunion for the past few months, with no one paying any attention.
“Even now I can’t quite understand it. For me, it was something totally normal – I see it all the time. I can’t really say if it was the first time or the last time I saw bits like that, because I never pay attention.
“From now on I will look more closely.”
Has he found any other interesting or unusual objects?
“Maybe,” he said. “But I wouldn’t know. I just throw them on the fire.”
