‘Soon it will be unrecognisable’: total climate meltdown cannot be stopped, says expert

Soon earth will be unrecognizableThe publication of Bill McGuire’s latest book, Hothouse Earth, could not be more timely. Appearing in the shops this week, it will be perused by sweltering customers who have just endured record high temperatures across the UK and now face the prospect of weeks of drought to add to their discomfort.

And this is just the beginning, insists McGuire, who is emeritus professor of geophysical and climate hazards at University College London. As he makes clear in his uncompromising depiction of the coming climatic catastrophe, we have – for far too long – ignored explicit warnings that rising carbon emissions are dangerously heating the Earth. Now we are going to pay the price for our complacence in the form of storms, floods, droughts and heatwaves that will easily surpass current extremes.


Gov. DeSantis Uses 1947 Court Ruling To Go After Miami Drag Show

DeSantis takes on drag showFlorida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) is citing a 75-year-old court ruling to go after a Miami drag show in an attempt to shut it down.

The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation filed an administrative complaint for disorderly conduct against R House restaurant, citing the state Supreme Court ruling against “men impersonating women.”

DeSantis said at a news conference Wednesday that a video taken in the restaurant shows a child walking with a drag performer dressed in “lingerie.”

He said investigators found minors present and a “children’s menu” for the popular outdoor bunches at R House, DeSantis added, “You think to yourself: Give me a break. What’s going on?”

Nicholas Sandman

Nicholas Sandmann lost his defamation lawsuits against several major media companies on Tuesday.

The teenager, who was 16 when a video of him and Native American elder Nathan Phillips went viral in 2019, plans to appeal the ruling after a federal judge struck his cases against The New York Times, ABC News, NBC Universal Media, CBS News, Gannett and Rolling Stone, according to Insider.

Court documents showed the lawsuit centered on Phillips’ claims that Sandmann blocked his path. These claims were widely reported on by major outlets including CNN and The Washington Post, both of which Sandmann eventually sued and settled with for undisclosed sums in 2020.

President Biden tests positive again for COVID-19 in 'rebound' case

Biden positive for Covid againPresident Joe Biden tested positive again Saturday morning for COVID-19 as part of a virus "rebound" that patients treated with Paxlovid sometimes experience, his doctor said.

Biden has experienced no reemergence of symptoms, Kevin O'Connor, physician to the president, said in a letter, and as a result, his doctors will not restart medical treatment.

Still, Biden will return to isolation, O'Connor said.

Paxlovid is an at-home antiviral therapy for those at higher risk for severe illness from COVID-19. Biden, 79, was at risk because of his age. He has been vaccinated and boosted against the virus.


Accusations fly after dozens of Ukrainian POWs are killed in prison

The deaths, some of which were confirmed by Reuters journalists at the prison where the men were held, overshadowed U.N.-backed efforts to restart shipping grain from Ukraine and ease a looming global hunger crisis.

Infowars’ parent company files for bankruptcy

Alex Jones

The conspiracy theorist Alex Jones’ media company Free Speech Systems filed for bankruptcy on Friday, but it should not disrupt the Texas defamation trial that seeks to force Jones to pay $150m or more to the family of one of the children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School attack.

The trial in Austin, Texas, where Jones lives and Free Speech Systems is based, wrapped up its first week of testimony Friday and is expected to conclude next week. The bankruptcy filing was announced by Jones’ attorney Andino Reynal.

Reynal and attorneys for the family suing Jones told Judge Maya Guerra Gamble that the bankruptcy filing would not halt the lawsuit.


More missing texts, this time from Trump DHS officials, raise new Jan. 6 questions

Ken CuccinelliMissing text messages for top Trump administration Homeland Security officials in the days surrounding Jan. 6, 2021, are raising new questions about why the agency’s watchdog did not alert officials to the potential destruction of records.

According to a document obtained by the Project on Government Oversight, text messages for former acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf as well as his deputy, Ken Cuccinelli, could not be located.

The late February message to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Inspector General Joseph Cuffari indicates that record retention issues at the agency extend beyond the Secret Service and that DHS’s own watchdog failed in multiple instances to notify lawmakers about the missing messages.
