Greenpeace Founder Debunks “Climate Change” Alarmism

by Mike March 25, 2014

Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore believes in good stewardship of the Earth’s resources, but parted company with that organization when it veered sharply left. He came to realize that “Environmentalists don’t like people” as he said in the documentary “Not Evil, Just Wrong” a few years back. A PhD with impeccable credentials, Moore was recently on […]

Just because you can model it doesn’t mean it models reality

by Skip March 19, 2014

Today we get the news that the Obama Administration is going all out (double down) on climate change (as if the globe has never seen change before – but I guess He’s teed off that “…and our planet began to heal…” is late).  Problem is, all of this is just more hoo-hah from the Watermelon […]

There’s a reason why they call them “Watermelon Environmentalists”

by Skip January 15, 2014

That would be Green on the outside, Red on the inside.  And in this case, this would be the old fashioned reason for Red – and it doesn’t mean the traditional “true blue American” either.  Red for Socialist…..or Communists (and we need to correct the coloration).  Every environmentalist and their actions always require a solution […]

A Great Year For Antarctic Ice….
A Tough Year For Warmist Tourists!

by Mike January 4, 2014

Oh, the folly, oh the ignominy: Earlier this year, a flotilla of lightweight boats filled with yuppie Warmist tourists became stranded off Canada when the NorthWest passage failed to open according to the pronouncements of the Gore-Acle (“Open, Sesame-Street!”), necessitating rescue by Canadian ice breaker. We’d call that a bad omen for folks testing the […]

Doodlings – TreeHugger proves my point of my previous post

by Mike December 1, 2012

Climate change conferences come and go, with repeated attempts by the World Statists to set up International governance to manage a non-existent problem. As Lord Christopher Monckton of Brenchley reports from the latest Hot Air fest in Doha, Man-made Global Warming has been almost exclusively confined to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPeCaC) conferences, […]

RGG-Die!

by Steve MacDonald September 2, 2011

RGGI’s proponents claimed it would be good for the environment, which was only true if the “environment” was one littered with taxpayer financed slush funds whose purposes were as ephemeral as the lefts idea of rights or justice.

It’s Not Easy Being Green…

by Steve MacDonald August 31, 2011

In a profanity strewn diatribe before the Aspen Institute, Gore said mean things about scientists who must be on the payroll of some arch-nemesis bent on brainwashing everyone into letting the evil genius destroy the planet.

Electric Cars Are Worse For The Environment (Hah Ha!)

Back in 2008 when I was talking about how cars like the Prius were not nearly as environmentally friendly as the greens and Democrats let on because the manufacturing process for the battery system was so hostile to the environment. That process erased any benefits you might achieve during use.
