The owners of the Lion’s Gate Sanctuary, an animal sanctuary in Colorado, recently euthanized all of its animals, including three lions, three tigers and five bears. They claim they were forced to do so by the government after the Elbert County Board of Commissioners denied their request to move to a new location.
But the operators of the Keenesburg Wild Animal Sanctuary balk at that claim. In a Facebook post the owners of the KWAS had But the Keenesburg Wild Animal Sanctuary had “publicly offered to care for the animals at their facility if Lion’s Gate was unable to do so."
First, the commissioners of the Elbert County Board had better have one hell of a reason for denying LGS's request to relocate. Forcing sanctuaried animals to exist on lands that routinely flood is tantamount to cruelty to animals.
But second, federal and state author should thoroughly investigate the actions of the owner/operators of the Lion's Gate Sanctuary. The euthanizing of those animals violates the very idea of "sanctuary." Additionally (and aside from the KWAS offer to take the animals), there are zoological societies across the nation who would have made accommodations for those animals.
This is a moment in time where organizations like PETA and the ASPCA should make their voices heard, loud and clear. The souls of those innocent animals demand it.
A group of Progressive executives who want to fight "global warming" - which the astute eco-zealot now refers to as "climate change" - is calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. The Energy Transitions Commission is made up of green energy executives, activist leaders and investment bankers, including former Vice Pres. Al Gore, all of whom would no doubt get a piece of the action.
It would seem that the opportunistic chameleon, Al Gore, has morphed from politician to climate expert to investment banker. Of course, when you follow the trail of greed this hypocrite leaves in his wake, that just makes sense, now doesn't it.
Gore's home in Tennessee has a gargantuan carbon foot print. He flies around the world on private jets. He drags an entourage around with him who gobble up power wherever he goes and he has the audacity to lecture people on energy austerity.
The truth about the "climate change" movement leaders is that they are copulating with the cash cow. Everything they do and propose ends up putting money in their pockets, including the creation of the "carbon credits" commodities exchange; a lucrative guilt market that allows Liberal hypocrites to continue to use energy the way they always have but pay a "fee" for "borrowing" energy against their quotas. Who profits? The commodities traders and the investment bankers.
You want to help the environment? Condemn these greed merchants and clean-up after yourselves (something eco-protesters never do) and stop wasting energy. That's all you have to do.
An integral Obama Administration scientist purposely brushed aside inconvenient - but accurate - data that showed a marked slowdown in "global warming" in compiling a deceptively alarming 2015 report that just so happened to coincided with Pres. Obama's participation in the Paris Climate Conference. This information comes courtesy of a whistle blower who, evidently, is now free from fear that he will lose his job now that the eco-zealot overlords of the Obama Administration are now out of power.
This should come as no surprise to anyone. The Obama Administration cooked the books on jobs numbers, unemployment, Obamacare, the economy and terror related issues. Of course they were going to cook the books on climate change data.
With big money Progressives in a desperate quest to create a financial scheme based on "carbon credits" the manipulation of truth on the climate is a must. There are trillions of dollars to be made if a carbon market evolves and much of that revenue generation will go to advancing Progressive causes.
Funny...they call it "cooking" the books.
