DISQUS Doodlings – once again, Environmentalist proves they hate humans

by Skip July 13, 2017

They get so upset when they get found out when they let slip that their whole idea is that humanity is the evil that plagues Nature and GAIA (the quaint notion that Earth is a living being).  And then they get upset when we merely observe what they say – and repeat it.  The sick […]

This proves two things about Socialism and Environmentalism

by Skip February 12, 2017

Venezuela is a basket case from every view you can take – except if you are a Socialist.  Those folks don’t even want to look in that direction and do you EVER hear them talking about how GREAT Venezuela is?  This headline and article doesn’t help and it should give both Socialists and Environmentalists (but […]

Doodlings – It’s so sad that we all don’t live up to the Treehugger denizens standard

by Skip September 7, 2016

Over at Treehugger is yet another post on the EVEEELS that pod coffee is for mother gaia (reformatted, emphasis mine): Data shows that, despite the environmental implications and high cost of single-use coffee pods, people continue to buy them more than ever before. They’re calling it “the Clooney effect.” Single-use coffee pods are flying off supermarket […]

Unexpectedly! “Malthus Chokes on Bumper Wheat Crop”

by Skip September 5, 2016

From this post over at Watts Up With That, the alternative title could have been: the “Paul Ehrlich is still spectacularly wrong” department: Yep, we were all heading to hell in a handbasket when Paul Erlich was making his predictions – he was all the rage when I was in college in the Bio departments and […]

Everything the Left Supports, Defends, or Does Should be Filtered Through this Context

by Steve MacDonald July 10, 2016

Everything the left supports, defends, or does should be filtered through this context. Emphasis mine.      “The chief appeal of war to social planners isn’t conquest or death but mobilization. Free societies are disorganized. People do their own thing, more or less, and that can be downright inconvenient if you’re trying to plan the […]

“One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy,” “We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy.” -Ottar Edenhofer Co-chair U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change working group on Mitigation of Climate Change from 2008 to 2015.

AG’s and Big Green Coordinating to “Investigate” Energy Companies?

Politically motivated special interests working with politically motivated government officials to punish political opponents? Not the Obama White House, State’s Attorneys General, silly. Emails obtained by the Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) show that the offices of New York Democratic Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and those of other politically aligned AGs, secretly teamed up […]

A Religion Without God

by Steve MacDonald November 6, 2015
Thumbnail image for A Religion Without God

Modern liberalism is best understood as a movement of would-be believers in search of true faith. For much of the 20th century it was faith in History, especially in its Marxist interpretation. Now it’s faith in the environment. Each is a comprehensive belief system, an instruction sheet on how to live, eat and reproduce, a […]

“So you think we should go back to the Stone Age?”

by Skip October 16, 2014

“Yes; we’d be better off than where you’re taking us” This from a guy who’d be without a jacket if petroleum was left in the ground.  When it comes right down to it, folks like him and his co-sojourner Environmental-wackos that want this dreamed about life-style are too enarmoured with the idea of “The Noble Savage” […]

Governor Maggie “Fracking” Hassan

We are right to assume that Democrats favor subsidies for green energy projects, redistribution schemes like the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), renewable energy standards that use government force to require power providers to buy more expensive wind and solar derived electricity to put it into the grid, because they supported, voted for, and defend […]

Capitalism works – thumbdrive beats Greenpeace

by Skip April 27, 2014

And do you really think that a top-down, command-and-control economy that the Democrats and Socialists are trying to implement here in the US, would have ever thought of this?  Possibly, but probably not really; Capitalism is much better suited to where a person can see a problem, see an issue, and then pursue a solution because […]

“Paint Stewardship Program” – look, there’s the gun toting Nanny at the paint racks!

by Skip March 21, 2014

NH State Rep Leigh Webb (D): “The role of government is to legislate behavior“ NH State Rep Laura Pantelakos (D): “I don’t care about protecting peoples’ Liberty“ Yet another Government mandate in search of a problem.  Democrat Progressives just can’t STAND the idea that they aren’t smarter than everyone else and have to pass legislation […]

A Spec of Common Sense in McAllen Texas

by Steve MacDonald July 24, 2012

McAllen Texas rests in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas, right along the border with Mexico.  And for now, at least, McAllen is not hopping on the plastic bag ban train to nowhere. If you have not been following my recent (bizarre and persistent) interest in this annoy environmental stupidity, towns and cities all […]

Internet Doodlings – Of COURSE, the environmentalists over at TreeHugger have only one answer – more spending?

by Skip June 17, 2012

Like I said here:   I guess that’s why the words Democrat and Consistency should never be used in the same sentence (unless one is a stand-up comic) OK, I’ll conserve some words – just swap out Democrat with environmentalist.  A two-fer!  Real conservatism and recyling!  The UN’s RIO+20 conference is going on in Rio all […]

NASA’s James Hansen – one of the grandfathers of Global Warming – was flat out wrong by 150%

by Skip June 17, 2012

I remember the first Earth Day and I think that that the environmental problems we had in the US at that time did have to be addressed.  Rivers were polluted, we couldn’t see very far in our large cities and in industrial areas, and yes, the air was toxic.  And a LOT of that has […]

Piling on Jeanne Shaheen’s Greenie green suck

by Skip May 29, 2012

And as Steve points out here (and mine), being Green means having LOTS of green – and just watching it swirl down the toilet (data points via The Enterprise Blog): …candidate Obama promised to create 5 million green jobs, at the low, low cost of only $15 billion per year Obama spent $90 billion of […]

Free Speech Rights? Not if you disagree with Greenpeace USA!

by Skip April 19, 2012

On their site, they have a page of “FAQs” about why you can’t believe any who is a “climate change denier”, and this page is calling Exxon their personal bogeyman (I notice that no mention of ClimateGate and the MBs of emails and bad data is mentioned – and I just giggled when I read […]

Internet Doodlings – At TreeHugger, environmentalists are like Obama: Constitution?

by Skip April 3, 2012

OK, commenter “mer” had me dead to rights:  Skip,  as a young boy, did you run around with sticks poking bears and hornet’s nests?  😉 My response was:  No, mer, I didn’t – but I have found out, as an adult, that it is good, clean (and cheap!) fun! So, I went back and did […]

Internet Doodlings – Greenies want more, don’t like I’m pointing out we’re broke

by Skip March 29, 2012

Congress, Please Don’t Cut Funding for Bike and Pedestrian Programs In the U.S., cities and states provide most of the funds for bike and pedestrians developments, but the federal government also provides essential funds without which many very important projects wouldn’t have been possible. The previous transportation bill, which was signed into law in 2005 […]

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 […]
