MOVIELINE: This Earth Day, Join Disney in Terrifying Your Kids at the Movies
Happy Earth Day! Movieline HQ’s efforts to go green largely failed this morning after our all-natural wheatgrass servers refused to boot up, but Plan B is almost as good for the planet.

BBC: 'Quiet Sun' baffling astronomers
There are no sunspots, very few solar flares - and our nearest star is the quietest it has been for a very long time.
The observations are baffling astronomers, who are due to study new pictures of the Sun, taken from space, at the UK National Astronomy Meeting.
The Sun normally undergoes an 11-year cycle of activity. At its peak, it has a tumultuous boiling atmosphere that spits out flares and planet-sized chunks of super-hot gas. This is followed by a calmer period.
Last year, it was expected that it would have been hotting up after a quiet spell. But instead it hit a 50-year low in solar wind pressure, a 55-year low in radio emissions, and a 100-year low in sunspot activity. ...
In the mid-17th Century, a quiet spell - known as the Maunder Minimum - lasted 70 years, and led to a "mini ice age".
This has resulted in some people suggesting that a similar cooling might offset the impact of climate change.
And it has people who aren't part of the scam pointing out that 'climate change' is caused by solar variance, not CO2 emissions.
Meanwhile back at the White House from his world apology tour...the truth comes out. All this propaganda was nothing but an excuse for a GIANT TAX INCREASE.
Obama's Carbon Cap and Trade Policy Is Costly for Consumers
With the president’s plan, companies would pay $13 to $20 per ton of carbon that it wished to emit into the atmosphere. The Obama administration publicly estimated that selling such rights would generate nearly $650 billion in federal revenue between 2012 and 2019. However, Jason Furman, deputy director of the president's National Economic Council, told a bipartisan group of Congressional staff members February 26 that the White House believes that the sale of carbon emission permits, if priced at $20 a ton, will generate between $1.3 trillion and $1.9 trillion in additional government revenue in the period, 2012-2019.
Its Earth Day. Save your children and hold onto your wallet!
