>WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is expected to begin rolling back stringent federal regulations on vehicle pollution that contributes to global warming, according to people familiar with the matter, essentially marking a U-turn to efforts to force the American auto industry to produce more electric cars.

>The announcement — which is expected as soon as Tuesday and will be made jointly by the Environmental Protection Agency administrator, Scott Pruitt, and the transportation secretary, Elaine L. Chao — will immediately start to undo one of former President Barack Obama’s most significant environmental legacies.

>During the same week, and possibly on the same day, Mr. Trump is expected to direct Mr. Pruitt to begin the more lengthy and legally complex process of dismantling the Clean Power Plan, Mr. Obama’s rules to cut planet-warming pollution from coal-fired power plants.

>The regulatory rollback on vehicle pollution will relax restrictions on tailpipe emissions of carbon dioxide and will not require action by Congress. It will also have a major effect on the United States auto industry.

>Under the Obama administration’s vehicle fuel economy standards, American automakers were locked into nearly a decade of trying to design and build ever more sophisticated fuel-efficient vehicles, including electric and hybrid models. The nation’s largest auto companies told Mr. Trump last month that they found those technical requirements too burdensome.

>The E.P.A. will also begin legal proceedings to revoke a waiver for California that was allowing the state to enforce the tougher tailpipe standards for its drivers.

>E.P.A. officials did not respond to emails requesting comment on the move.

Did you even read your own link? It basically says that there are brief periods where the surface temperature stops increasing for a few years due to various weather patterns, but still remains higher than it was previously, and that it began increasing again in 2015- the overall trend continues to show an increase despite these small delays. Even during those short periods, the temperatures of the oceans continued to climb while the levels of arctic ice continued to decrease.
>Heat is trapped on the surface? Like the ground?
There are multiple levels of the atmosphere you dense fuck. The gases in the upper level are keeping heat trapped in the lower levels near the surface.

The point is there was a warming hiatus. And you were totally ignorant of that.

>Even during those short periods, the temperatures of the oceans continued to climb while the levels of arctic ice continued to decrease.
This is totally false. You're trying to tell me the Earth cooled... but the oceans warmed? The oceans are pretty big how is that even possible.

Arctic ice is not decreasing, it is currently GROWING.

>>125746
>The gases in the upper level are keeping heat trapped in the lower levels near the surface.

If the CO2 is trapping heat in the air, the air would be hot first, then the surface.

>Disturbing new details have emerged in the case of two teenage immigrants living in Maryland, one of them illegally, who are accused of brutally raping and sodomizing their 14-year-old female classmate in a bathroom stall on campus.

>The alleged assault happened Thursday morning at Rockville High School in Montgomery County, leading to the arrests of 17-year-old Jose Montano, from El Salvador, and 18-year-old Henry Sanchez, from Guatemala, on charges of first-degree rape and first-degree sexual assault.


>A probable cause statement filed on Friday at the Montgomery County District Court by the arresting officer painted a harrowing picture of the rape, based on an interview with the alleged victim and physical evidence gathered at the scene.

>According to the court document, obtained by the station WJLA, Montano and Sanchez accosted the girl in the hallway at around 9am Thursday.

>The girl knew only one of the teens, Montano, who allegedly asked her for a hug, then slapped her butt and asked her to walk with them. As the trio were passing by a boys’ bathroom on the way to the gym, the 17-year-old Montano repeatedly asked the girl to have sex with him and his friend, and when she refused they allegedly forced her into the restroom.

>The probable cause document describes the assault in extremely graphic detail, recounting how the alleged victim grabbed onto a sink to avoid being forced into a stall, but the two suspects shoved her inside.

That's inherently wrong.

You are forgetting your duty to protect minors, which is a basic thing stated by the UN as well.

Suppose you find a young boy, who wasn't possibly born in the US territory (or, if he was, was never registered). Are you going to kick him out just because?

I'll tell you what: as a collective community that shares *some* duties towards other human beings -- especially minors, and in particular minors who display criminal behaviour... it is NOT your duty to kick them out and wash your hands like Pontius Pilatus (who crucifixed Jesus F. Christ). Rather, you have the duty to take care of them as one of yours.

I'm appalled at your double standards.
It seems to me that, so far, many anons here have defended the Constitution and the entire legal system, regardless of how well it was working.

I kept maintaining the opposite opinion -- i.e. the State is your adversary until proven otherwise, so you have to keep fighting for your rights because at the slightest whim of the élite they might be taken away from you.

Basically, I was saying:
>you have to keep fighting for what is right, because no piece of paper will automatically guarantee it and as long as you delegate, you run a serious risk

Now you come over here and say that the government and the law is wrong whenever they do something that does not please you...

>The real issue I see with illegal immigration is that solely by managing to cross the border they already did more to deserve citizenship due to meritocracy than someone who just happened to randomly be born in the USA. I think illegal immigrants should be deported, but in the spirit of justice everyone born in the USA should have to take a citizenship test when they hit 18 or be deported.
Interesting plan, except for:
>where the fuck do you deport them?
It's not that other countries with entire different systems (legal and economic) are there waiting for Amerifats to knock at their door and say:
>hey, we got a bunch of idiots that do not deserve to stay here... could you please take them on board on our behalf?

It's even advisable to talk about birth control for kids even younger.

Natalia Jaresko, the American-born Ukrainian investment banker who served as Ukraine's Finance Minister between late 2014 and mid-2016, and oversaw a catastrophic decline in the country's economy, has been tasked with steering the Caribbean island of Puerto Rico out of its economic and debt crisis.

Jaresko has been appointed to the post of executive director of the federal control board overseeing the Puerto Rico's finances, the Associated Press has reported.

Board chairman Jose Carrion said that Jaresko's experience in Ukraine made her exactly the kind of person needed to rescue the US territory from its "near-catastrophic" situation. In Ukraine, he noted, Jaresko "worked with stakeholders to bring needed reforms that restored confidence, economic vitality and reinvestment in the country and its citizens."

The former finance minister commented on the appointment on her Facebook page, saying that she was "honored and humbled to be taking on a new, critically important position to put Puerto Rico back on the path to fiscal stability."

Jaresko will now be tasked with ensuring a balanced budget within a four year period, and with restructuring the territory's $70 billion in public debt. She will be paid an annual salary of $625,000.

There is already a thread on this topic. Check the catalogue before starting a new thread.

https://conservativedailypost.com/breaking-vote-passes-56-44-in-the-house-bill-to-prohibit-sharia-law-in-united-states/

Many on the right know that Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has brought forth a couple of ideas for making sure that sharia law can never be welcomed into America. He wishes, as do many sound minds who honor the precepts of liberty, to halt the hold that radical Islamic practices would have upon our culture, and those who would suffer mercilessly under it. Under this awful rule, humans are treated as objects to be abused for the smallest infraction. This is all due to the teachings of a man who claimed to get the divine message of Islam in between marrying children and trampling the rights of Jews and Christians.

After worrying about the “intent” of a bill to “prohibit state courts from applying foreign law” and to stop the honoring of sharia from poisoning the West as it has the Middle East and is doing in London, the legislation is said to have moved onward. It passed the “House largely along party lines with a 56-44 vote.” Maybe some were worried that the law would be used as it should be, not just against sharia law, but against the United Nations, NATO and any other foreign body who the left worships. THAT is likely what their main concern was, and it is something that could really help America escape the evil edicts of the NWO.

>A married mother in Michigan who authorities say confessed to having sex with a 14-year-old boy in the back seat of her car and sending him naked pictures seems to still have the support of her husband.

>Brooke Lajiness, 38, of Lima Township, admitted to having sex with the boy between eight and 15 times in the back of her parked car, Michigan State Police Trooper Donald Pasternak testified during a hearing earlier this month, MLive.com reports.

>“They started conversing and exchanging nude photographs while he was still in middle school,” said Pasternak, adding that they began their illicit tryst last summer as he transitioned into high school.

>Pasternak told Magistrate A. Thomas Truesdell during the hearing that the boy’s mother entered a Michigan State Police outpost weeks earlier to report a complaint about Lajiness having sex with her son.

>“This case involved a defendant seeking out minors for sex,” Assistant Washtenaw Prosecutor John Vella said.

>Lajiness’ attorney, David Goldstein, took exception to language in court regarding more than one victim, since the current charges relate to only one 14-year-old victim. Lajiness was arraigned earlier this month on 13 counts of third-degree criminal sexual conduct, one count of accosting a minor for immoral purposes and one count of furnishing obscenity to a child, court records cited by the website indicate.

>Some populations are growing, mainly in southern parts of the continent.

>Until now, the conservation status of giraffes was considered of "least concern" by the IUCN.

>However in their latest global Red List of threatened species, the ungainly animal is now said to be "vulnerable", meaning that over three generations, the population has declined by more that 30%.

>According to Dr Julian Fennessy, who co-chairs the IUCN giraffe specialist group, the creatures are undergoing a "silent extinction".

A white Army veteran accused of randomly killing a black man on the streets of New York with a sword has been charged with murder as a hate crime.

>NEW YORK (AP) — One was a neighborly black man who lived in a rooming house in New York's Garment District, liked to collect autographs outside Broadway's theaters, struck up a Twitter friendship with a Hollywood actress and took photos of himself with Oprah Winfrey and Beyonce.

>The other was a white Army veteran from outside Baltimore who was raised in what was described as a churchgoing and liberal family and served in Afghanistan.

>Late Monday night, officials say, their paths crossed tragically on the streets of New York in a cold-bloodedly random act of racist violence by the white man.

>As 66-year-old Timothy Caughman bent over a trash bin around the corner from his home, gathering bottles to recycle, James Harris Jackson attacked him from behind with a 2-foot sword and walked off, prosecutors say. A bleeding Caughman staggered into a police station and later died at a hospital.

>On Thursday, Jackson, 28, was charged with murder as a hate crime. He said nothing in court.

>"The defendant was motivated purely by hatred," said Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi, who added that the charges could be upgraded, "as this was an act most likely of terrorism."

Maybe it's because blatant black-on-white hate crime happens less often and claims less lives than you think.

It's still an ugly crime, and the black community shouldn't defend it, but to say it's misreported is rather disingenuous considering the massive coverage the 2016 police shooting got, along with other miscellaneous shootings.

A private Facebook group called "Marines United" contained a link to a Google Drive folder, where the photos were being stored, a US defense official told CNN. Members on the site solicited others to submit photos of women without their knowledge. The cloud storage folder has been removed at the request of the military,

Women fought so hard to be in the military and now where has all discipline gone?

My pont here is about discipline, not about gender. They cannot join the military and act like they're in a mall. That's not the point of the military.

Most of the women who willingly took and shared pics should be discharged with dishonour. I mean, nobody messes with what you do in private. They are just required to avoid acting like that on the job. Has someone informed them the military is not a huge summer camp? Or maybe it is, as far as America is concerned.

Where I live, in Europe, it seems like ethics don't apply to them. They are entitled not to show up at a meeting and be excused for that. They are entitled to write you bullshit and then get away with it when they don't stick to their own words. They are entitled to lie and will get angry if you point out some inconsistencies... Etc.

And I am not writing this in a /pol/ kind of way. I am more frustrated than angry. Every time I fall for that and every time the wake-up call is painful and saddening:
>I should never have trusted her
>she could have never kept her word
Etc.

I don't understand how this message could be an objection to the previous one.

Previous one was like:
>I don't get why women are the first ones to share nude pics
>just to complain when nude pics are shared

Sounds legit to me.

Now >>120665 comes here and says:
>You're behaving like all women are here ready to fuck you
So what's the point again? Am I missing some logical step?

House Speaker Paul Ryan sensationally pulled his Obamacare repeal bill from the floor Friday, a day after President Donald Trump had threatened to walk away from health care reform if he didn't get a vote.

After a dramatic day on Capitol Hill, Ryan rushed from the White House to Capitol Hill to tell Trump he did not have the votes to pass the measure, the culmination of seven years of Republican efforts to eradicate President Barack Obama's proudest domestic achievement.

"We were very close," Trump said in the Oval Office after the bill was pulled. "It was a very, very tight margin."

As Ryan presented the dire vote totals in his meeting with Trump, he explicitly recommended the President pull the bill, according to a senior GOP official. The decision was ultimately Trump's. Trump made the call at 3 p.m., as the rest of House leadership was gathering in Ryan's office.

"We came up short," Ryan told reporters. "We are going to be living with Obamacare for the forseeable future."
Ryan told fellow Republicans they are "moving on" from health care, Reps. Andy Barr, R-Kentucky, and Bill Flores, R-Texas, told CNN. Trump said tax reform would be next.

It's because government intervention has made minimum coverage requirements so someone can't shop for a plan that they need.

Yeah, what republicans fail to realize is that the free market, profits, are just a tax on an already very expensive good, leading to exorbitant costs, which extends to when the gov. has to step in to prevent us from being some third world country.

Well that sucks, that's the one thing I actually thought Trump didn't completely suck at.

>LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Scientists in Germany are testing what they describe as "the world's largest artificial sun," which they hope could pave the way toward creating hydrogen to use as a green fuel.

>The system called Synlight - being developed at the German Aerospace Center near Cologne - is an array of 149 bright film projector spotlights. They produce light about 10,000 times stronger than typical sunlight.

>The test aims to find new ways to create hydrogen to fuel vehicles such as cars and planes, explained Bernhard Hoffschmidt, the director of the Center's Institute for Solar Research.

>"We're essentially bringing the sun to the Earth, by re-creating its radiation in a lab," he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in a telephone interview.

>"We orientate all lamps to focus on one point, which can generate temperatures of over 3,000 degrees Celsius."

>The operation produces water vapor that can be split into hydrogen and oxygen, Hoffschmidt said.

>"The hydrogen created can then be used to power airplanes and cars (with) carbon-dioxide-free fuel," he said.
