                                  WHO   NEEDS  A  TESLA ?

   FORGET  LITHIUM BATTERIES: A BLACK  TRAFFIC  COP  ARRESTED  AMERICA'S  FIRST  GREEN  PRESIDENT  FOR   RACING  A  FAST ALTERNATIVE  VEHICLE  IN 1872
The Observer  reports that in1872. black Washington D.C. policeman William West 
arrested President Ulysses S. Grant for speeding as he drove his gig down 13th  Street, where Officer West had cautioned him against racing  the day before, and the  President had  solemnly promised to drive more slowly in future.  When West saw Grant racing friends on the same street the next day, he collared him..

 West's  account  of the 1872 incident appears in a 1908 article in the Washington Star celebrating his retirement from the police force :
“I cautioned you yesterday, Mr. President,” answered the policeman, “about fast driving, and you said, sir, that it would not occur again.” 
“Did I?” mused Grant, still with a quizzical smile on his features. “Well, I suppose I forgot it, and that I might have been going a little bit too fast this evening: but hang it officer, these animals of mine are thoroughbreds, and there is no holding them.” 
“I am very sorry, Mr. President to have to do it, for you are the chief of the nation, and I am but a policeman. But duty is duty, sir, and I will have to place you under arrest,” West replied.
“All right,” cried Grant, “where do you wish me to go with you?”
The policeman said he must go to the station house. At the President’s invitation the policeman took a seat in the vehicle, and as they drove, the war hero questioned him about himself and his antecedents.
Grant went to the courthouse and paid a fine of $20.

MOON  JUICE THEFT  THREATENS  BAD  CLIMATE  KARMA

IPCC 8.5  is described on the climate lifestyle blog as "a pathway of the heart, a scenario of Unconditional Fear... It speaks directly to the Heart Chakra, dissolving emotional wounds and resentments, and circulates a sacred metaphysical fluid of Divine loving energy through the body of  the entire ClimateSign Community." Though it's difficult to put a monetary value on sacramentals, awareness training  on the Climate Reality  circuit  can cost thousands. 
Gwyneth Paltrow
The New age millieu of   metaphysical  Climate Awareness is  equally intriguing. An LA shop called Moon Juice.  is described on its website as a provider of "alchemy to nourish and elevate a climate of  beauty and consciousness". Some bloggers have unkindly called the shop's owner, Amanda Chantal Bacon, and her ethos "pretentious". However, Gwyneth Paltrow is a fan. She uses the shop's $55 "dust" as an ingredient in some the recipes of her lifestyle blog Goop. 
Moon Juice and Goop have been accused of selling "overpriced" and "pretentious"  climate memes

So, when Moon Juice said that a crime had taken place, it was bound to grab the attention of  bearded indie  climate film producers , and  rock singer Father John Misty, who is no stranger to dragging people on social media, recognized by the NME music site as"a certified climate communicator."
In an Instagram post that has been shared more than 9,000 times, an anonymous group calling itself the Heartland Institute Irregulars  claimed responsibility for the crime. But modeling locovores in Boulder Colorado claim they " aren't sorry for the act because "to claim that something has been 'stolen' is in itself a tacit endorsement of the capitalist values that blended superfoods and locally sourced produce stands, ironically, in direct opposition to."S
eemingly unconcerned by the warnings 
"The universe, however you may define her, brought this scenario l into our lives  at what can only be described as a 'tipping point'... While  we  sympathize with Climate Reality's  loss , we believe that there is a larger lesson to be gleaned from this experience: namely that material goods, no matter how sacred, WILL come and go from your life."
They  might have a point. The  Metaphysical Properties of Crystals & Climate Models blog notes that a  pathway may evolve into implausibility  and organically leave reality behind due to the following reasons: "divine intervention, giving us messages from angel foundations, focus groups,  or spirit guides that the empirical data  didn't resonate with our energy/vibration/ Perhaps  the pathway  was called to benefit someone else, possibly Peak Oil  opponents or Coal Bears  because  it served its purpose for us and had to move on."

               REVERSE GEOENGINEERING FOR DUMMIES

Neogeoengineer &  PR hack  Papaya Fancier Eric Worrall's latest brainstorm  manages to make it through  nearly four  paragraphs before making its  first  three  order of magnitude science error :

Lets Cook Limestone to Raise

 Atmospheric  CO2  to 1000ppm

Dumbarton castle in 1800 and functioning lime kiln with smoke in the foreground.

The world has a CO2 problem – there is not enough free CO2 in the atmosphere, to maximise food production, alleviate world hunger, green deserts, and to attempt to hold off the next ice age. But if my calculation is correct, raising CO2 to a safer level would be surprisingly affordable. 
Although a lot of nonsense has been written about CO2 ...

JULY 7, Elevated CO2 Stimulates the Growth of Papaya 
By CRAIG D. IDSO
Papayas are spherical or pear-shaped fruits known for their delicious taste and sunlit color of the tropics. Upon his arrival to the New World, Christopher Columbus apparently could not get enough of this exotic fruit, reportedly referring to it as the “the fruit of angels.” And the fruit of angels it may indeed be, as modern science has confirmed its value as a rich source of important vitamins, antioxidants and other health-promoting substances to the consumer.

Papaya production has increased significantly over the past few years to the point that it is now ranked fourth in total tropical fruit production after bananas, oranges and mango. It is an important export in many developing countries and provides a livelihood for thousands of people


Its not just Greens who are worried about Europe – the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker stated in a speech that leaders of other planets are worried about the direction Europe will take, in the wake of the Brexit vote.
Did EU chief confirm aliens EXIST? Juncker ‘speaks of BREXIT to leaders of other planets’
ALIEN conspiracy theorists were sent into overdrive after European Commission president Jean Claude Juncker appeared to say he had “heard from the leaders of other planets”.
Clips of the EU big wig speaking in a Brexit debate are going viral online, after he was heard to say aliens were worried about the looming Brexit by the UK from the union.
He said, translated from French: “You need to know that those who observe us from afar are worried.
“I have have seen, listened and heard many leaders of other planets and they are very worried because they wonder about the course the EU will follow.
“So we have to reassure both the Europeans and those who observe us from afar.”

CFACT: New warming study 

devastates alarmist claims

  • Gore prospects for nature

Two climate scientists skeptical of man-made global warming are closely watching a study they say could be a “death knell” to climate alarmism.
A major scientific study conducted at the University of Reading on the interactions between aerosols and clouds is much weaker than most climate models assume, meaning the planet could warm way less than predicted.
“Currently, details are few, but apparently the results of a major scientific study on the effects of anthropogenic aerosols on clouds are going to have large implications for climate change projections—substantially lowering future temperature rise expectations,” Cato Institute climate scientists Patrick Michaels and Chip Knappenberger wrote in a recent blog post.

                  THE NEW  ICONOCLASM : EMOJI  CENSORSHIP

THE  HEAD OF THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND MAKING  A  BRRRREX-EX-EX-SOUND  

  The Emoji Bible's  debut   has drawn mixed reaction from Protestant divines and the

What  happened  to  the  rifle  emoji?

Should there be a rifle emoji?
According to BuzzFeed, Apple and Microsoft say no. A new update to emoji, the series of tiny images available through most operating systems, is due to be released at the end of June by the Unicode Consortium, of which both Apple and Microsoft are voting members. And up to a relatively late stage of planning, the list of new emoji included both a rifle, and an image which showed a man shooting a pistol.
The update is partly themed around the Rio Olympics, and features a series of medals, boxing gloves, fencers and a goal net. (There's also a juggler, perplexingly, despite the fact that juggling is not an Olympic sport.) The rifle was meant to symbolise competitive shooting, while the man shooting a pistol appears in an image of the "modern pentathalon".
A statement on the Emojipedia website notes that both have been "bumped" and are "no longer coming to an emoji keyboard near you". 
The rifle emoji in particular has been controversial since it was first suggested. A British gun control group spoke out against the gun’s inclusion to the BBC last October, saying:
"It would be familiarising and popularising the image of a weapon which is not a good idea."
