Palate Cleanser – UN Environmental Program predicted we’d all be dead 15 years ago

by Skip July 28, 2015

And this is one reason why I rarely take environmentalists seriously anymore.  After all, when in college in the late 70s, the headlines were all chock-a-block about a new Ice Age coming and we’re all gonna die!!  From the San Jose Mercury News 6/30/89: A senior environmental official at the United Nations, Noel Brown, says […]

And this is why most of us blow off environmentalists all together

by Skip April 22, 2014

Want us to join you in your quest for a better Earth?  This ain’t the way to do it.  But it is rather amusing to watch this overblown self-righteous Prius driver take on a farmer and his family for that sin of sins – driving a truck!  Yessiryee bob – even if you need such […]

Poke a stick in the Treehugger cage again: “I am an environmentalist, and yes I do want to limit your freedom”

by Skip August 10, 2013

My, aren’t we being a little totalitarian here, eh (you WILL change your life according to my beliefs)? Your heterodoxy might need tweaking, especially if all of the warmist predictions (and the climate change models are all being shown to be wildly out of whack with their predictions to actual temperatures seen).  And if this […]

Blaming CO2 – We’ll Roast… We’ll Drown… We’ll Starve… We’ll Sneeze???

by Mike June 3, 2013

There is a certain alarmist style of reporting where any series of unfortunate events will be blamed on Global Cooling, er, Global Warming, er, Climate Change, Oh, Heck – Let’s just blame CO2 directly! In that vein, we now have an amazing piece from USA Today blaming allergy season on CO2! They failed to convince […]

Data Point – A Time to Drill

by Skip April 29, 2013

It is clear that if energy is needed, and it is found, it can be drilled for and drilled quickly.  It is also clear that Obama’s Administration does not believe it is needed nor wanted, so they slow walk it (if moving forward on one’s knees is construed as reasonable progress). (H/T: RedState)

Enviroreligion: 12 dead humans. So? Big deal.

by Tim Condon April 26, 2013

Left-wing statists hate religion. Their disdain shines through at anyone or anything that hints of a transcendental nature. Except for nature itself, that is. Now that…well there’s something worth protecting! Even if it means people die. That’s just too bad. So this is what…

Frack-Attack: Tonight The Premiere of ‘FrackNation’, By Ann and Phelim

by Mike January 22, 2013

Tonight, for those of you who get AXS-TV (Dish Network and some cable providers), there is the national premiere of ‘FrackNation’, the rebuttal by Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney of all the hysterical anti-energy “Crockumentaries’ by the Hollywood left, especially Josh Fox’s ‘Gasland’. If it lives up to their prior work, it will be well […]

Data Point – And we need a carbon tax to lower our “carbon usage” – why?

by Skip December 11, 2012

3. The chart above shows the Department of Energy’s estimates of CO2 emissions per capita from 1973 to 2040. Total energy-related carbon emissions are expected to fall to a 20-year low this year, and on a per-capita basis will be the lowest since at least 1973 when the Department of Energy’s data begins. From the […]

Hypocrisy: Thy name be Al Gore (yet another Progressive)!

by Skip October 9, 2012

Since the Kyoto Climate Change treaty was rejected by the US Senate (and this uber-Progressive getting “the boot from the Oval Office” (losing his election)), we’ve had to put up with his (environmental) screeds in the national papers (and TV) about how Republicans (and Conservatives and Climate Deniers)  that if we all didn’t don his brand […]

In America today, we are living in a time of tribulation. WHAT DO YOU DO…

by Tim Condon August 23, 2012

…when you are faced with the poisonous policies and politics of Obama, the Democrats, and their henchmen in government, in the media, and elsewhere?

Where environmentalists explicitly wish no access AT ALL to anyone – and are willing to kill people to enforce it.

by Skip July 24, 2012

I’m not sure if the proper metaphor is “enough rope to hang themselves with” or “let them babble long enough to find out what they really believe.  Once again, from that crazy hothouse of Environmentalism meets Totalitarian Murder, TreeHugger.  This post’s author is absolutely aghast that our civilization has found just SCADS of high amounts […]

When it comes to Green Jobs, Obama Administration: “When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean”

by Skip June 7, 2012

From Alice in Wonderland: “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.” Well, I could easily say that the Obama Administration has been nonsensical in how it uses words (been listening to Jay Carney, his Press […]

Human Achievement Hour – 2012

by Skip March 31, 2012

OK, it’s that time of year again: Earth Hour is upon us where tonite between the hours of 8:30 and 9:30, we are all supposed to act like we are back in the Stone Age and just sit in the dark (ok, maybe a candle might be OK, but remember : IT’S CREATING MORE CO2!!!!!!).  […]

So, how do some “Ecologists” see the human race?

by Skip March 29, 2012

I have several different sets of “bookmarks” in my FireFox setup – one has some environmental sites that I go to.  Yes folks, there are conservative leaning (what I would consider, given that I hold two scientific degrees, “leaning on science” sites).  Others?  I would have to say that one of them is more of […]

Difference between free market vs command-and-control economy could not be starker; why do environmentalists wish to turn us into the latter?

by Skip December 19, 2011

The big international news of the day is the death of North Korea’s despot, Kim Jong Ill (yes, the obligatory “no longer ill,  just dead”).  The Communist regime that has controlled the country since the ’40s with its Stalinist command and control can easily be seen from space at night as the image to the […]

Yes, More US Energy Use Equals More Output

by Steve MacDonald February 10, 2011

This is not a theorem, or a rule, it is more of a guideline. That US Energy consumption produces equals output. I made this case back in 2008 when wackadoodles like Jeanne Shaheen, Paul Hodes and Carol Shea-Porter (among others milking the teats of the earth-mother for green votes) complained about how America used 25% of the worlds energy–or something close to it, and we were evil for using all that energy. The narrative was that we were domestic abuses of a child named “resources.”

More Stupid Environmentalist Notions

by Steve MacDonald December 2, 2010

Liberals say the dumbest things. A few days ago we read that a number of activists are trying to terminate the license renewal for Seabrook Nuclear power plant because, they insist, renewable sources will become available to replace the power Seabrook currently generates.
