Extreme weather — not politicians — convinces Americans that climate change is real

Americans find today's climate science increasingly convincing, and a damaging mix of exceptional drought, storms, and record-breaking heat is the reason why.  The results of a new survey — conducted in November 2018 by the University of Chicago's Energy Policy Institute and the research organization The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research — found that nearly half of Americans said today's climate science "is more convincing than five years ago, with extreme w...

North Korean base serves as missile headquarters: think tank

"The Sino-ri missile operating base and the Nodong missiles deployed at this location fit into North Korea's presumed nuclear military strategy by providing an operational-level nuclear or conventional first strike capability," said the report co-authored by analyst Victor Cha. The discovery of an undeclared missile headquarters comes three days after U.S. President Donald Trump said he "looks forward" to another summit to discuss denuclearization with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in late Fe...

Trump confuses weather with climate change again: 'Wouldn’t be bad to have a little good old fashioned Global Warming right now!'

Donald Trump has again confused weather with climate change, suggesting the US would benefit from “a little of that good old fashioned Global Warming right now” amid forecasts of snow and cold conditions. Large parts of the Country are suffering from tremendous amounts of snow and near record setting cold. In November, Mr Trump conflated seasonal weather with climate change, suggesting chilly conditions meant global warming wasn’t real.

Such a move would deepen the Trump administration's already broad rejection of former President Barack Obama's policies on global warming, which Trump has repeatedly suggested is not as serious as scientists claim.

Space is new arena for war, Donald Trump says as he unveils missile defence strategy

Space is the new arena for war, Donald Trump said on Thursday as he announced a major drive to update America’s missile defence system and touted his “Space Force” proposal.  The US president said that he wants a “layer” of sensors placed among the stars that can detect missile launches and will demand that the technology is funded in his next budget. The item was one of a host of improvements the Pentagon is attempting to make to its decades-old missile system, outlined in its new Missile Defen...

‘Star Wars’ returns: Trump calls for space-based missile defense

The President has announced that the Defense Department will pursue a space-based missile defense system reminiscent of the one proposed by Reagan in 1983. As with Reagan’s ultimately abortive effort, the technology doesn’t actually exist yet and may not for years to come — but it certainly holds more promise now than 30 years ago. In a speech at the Pentagon reported by the Associated Press, Trump explained that a new missile defense system would “detect and destroy any missile launched against...

America’s most stunning jerks are flocking to your national parks. Who are they?

Like an unlocked museum, national parks have been left largely defenseless during the most recent government shutdown, allowing scoundrels and cheats to tramp over unstaffed lands. While much of the federal government is funded during the longest-ever shutdown, the national parks aren't. Yet in 2018, the Trump administration made the unusual — and possibly illegal — decision to keep many of the nation's crown jewels operating with skeleton crews. Destruction, mounds of litter, and vand...
