Polar bears on ESA will lead to economic destruction

Hot in the news today is the drive to list the Polar Bear as an endangered species as a result of Global Warming. Urgent messages are being issued by environmental groups that the polar ice caps are melting and thus endangering bear populations.

Mad About High Gas Prices? A Simple Solution

There are only 545 people who essentially run the entire country.  Americans are 300,000,000 strong. 

It only takes a small percentage of that 300,000,000 to change policy. 

Why is it we Americans are so weak that we stand around and do nothing when a major problem is staring us in the face?  That’s not the American can-do spirit for which we are known. 

All it takes is an idea that will sweep the country like a fast-moving infectious virus and gas prices will come down almost instantly.

The Global Warming Scare

These days it is almost considered a punishable offense to cast doubt on the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming; but if there is such a thing, it logically follows that its alleged dire consequences would have to be, well, global.

Dems Running on Empty - Nearly 30% of Dem Senators Opposed Climate Tax Bill

Excerpt: What a difference three years makes: In 2005, I led the charge against a massive global warming cap-and-trade bill. It was a lonely battle with few GOP members willing to join me on the Senate floor to publicly oppose it.


Mother Nature and Man’s Foolish Games

Anyone who has spent any time outdoors knows that Mother Nature is a cruel mistress. She can be awesomely beautiful and astonishingly cruel. This no doubt accounts for the way early man concluded that prayers, rituals, and other efforts to cajole, flatter, and influence nature were necessary to explain and avoid the many ways nature will find to kill you if you are not prepared.

A World Afloat on an Ocean of Oil

Considering how much untapped oil is known to exist, not just in the United States, but worldwide, one would think that its current price was some kind of anomaly and it is. It is more the result of speculation than anything else.

Will the Greens Sacrifice Their Own “Sacred Cows”?

RIP: Renowned Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Reid Bryson Dies At 88

[Note:  Dr. Reid Bryson is prominently featured in the U.S. Senate’s report of now over 500 skeptical scientists of man-made global warming fears. (See: http://epw.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=Minority.SenateReport ) Senator Inhofe frequently cited Dr. Bryson and he was always available to answer questions or email with me personally during the climate change battles. Whether it was posting comments on the New York Times blog or emailing data, Bryson was razor sharp to the very end. One of Bryson’s most cited quotes on his man-made global warming views was: “You can go outside and spit and have the same effect as doubling carbon dioxide.” (New peer-reviewed studies are validating Bryson’s views.) Bryson was a legend in his field and we will be greatly missed and appreciated. God Bless you Dr. Bryson. ]

No Drilling. No New Refineries. Get a Horse!

I keep wondering how long it will take Americans to connect the dots and figure out why the most powerful economy the world has ever seen cannot manage to drill for oil in its own backyard and then get it refined nearby.

Of tire taxes and tire recycling

Nineteen years ago this May the Honourable R. F. Nixon - then provincial Treasurer in the Peterson Liberal Government - introduced a $5 tire tax in Ontario. The tax was supposed to, “… help fund efforts to support recycling and environmentally sound disposal.”

Just nine months later in February of 1990 a 14 million tire stockpile in Hagersville, Ontario burned.

Despite this dramatic event by the time the Bob Rae NDP Government repealed the tire tax in 1993 the province had accrued over $150 million in revenue from the tire tax yet had only spent less than one-tenth of that amount on promoting scrap tire recovery and recycling. Upon repealing the tax then Finance Minister Bud Wildman stated that, “What the industry said is quite true, that the whole amount was not used for recycling and for new technologies related to rubber. The revenues, of course, went to the consolidated revenue fund…

A closer look at the “green” movement

By William Campbell Douglass II, M.D. www.douglassreport.com
These days, there’s nothing more hypocritical - and, if you ask me, downright silly - than the so-called “green” movement throughout the country. It has become nauseatingly trendy for the elite and the self-important (i.e., Hollywood types) to swath themselves in all things eco-friendly in order to diminish their “carbon footprint” and have “less of an impact on the environment.” I’m talking about save-the-planet, tree hugging, global warming alarmists like Al Gore.

Thermometers Are Doing the Talking

What a world!! Global warming alarmists bring us to the brink of world food shortage and economic collapse—using words and computer models, not higher temperatures. As a result, more wildlife species are threatened by palm oil plantations growing biodiesel than by climate change. Heavy sea ice just trapped a big Russian ice-breaker for seven days in the Arctic’s Northwest Passage, which the alarmists told us last year would soon be open sailing. The sunspots and a Pacific Ocean cooling phase are forecasting the earth will cool further over the next two decades. In the past, both have accurate in their in their predictions.
