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.

Greens thwart gasoline production

Four-plus dollar gasoline is forcing Americans to realize that increased domestic oil production is needed to meet our ever-growing demand for affordable gasoline.

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Despite this dramatic event by the time the Bob Rae NDP Government repealed the tire tax in 1993 the province had accrued over $150 million in revenue from the tire tax yet had only spent less than one-tenth of that amount on promoting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.

A Heat Wave, But….

While the East Coast swelters in temperatures that are in the high 90’s, I waited for the usual environmental propaganda to say that this was proof of global warming, but it has not yet been pumped through the usual mainstream media system of lies about the climate.

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.

Oil, What, Where & When in North America Over the Next 3 Years

Many countries have very heavy crude oil and it can only be used to refine certain products. Saudi crude cannot be used for gasoline production because of this. Mexico and Venezuela also have almost all of their oil as heavy crude. It can be used to produce heavy bunker oil used in ships and asphalt production. In Canada’s Alberta oil patch, the oilsands is also very heavy crude and must be refined in an upgrader to allow it to become a very light crude then be refined into gasoline and other light oil products. It costs a great deal more time and money to refine the heavy crudes into light grade products..A certain percentage of very heavy crude is also lost in the double refining process which is one reason it brings a much lower price.

Senate Climate Bill Fails -  ‘Largest Tax Bill Ever’ Defeated

Excerpt: This week’s Climate Tax Bill debate revealed many useful insights into why the American people will remain skeptical of a global warming cap-and-trade system. The Wall Street Journal aptly noted on June 6 that environmentalists are “stunned that their global warming agenda is in collapse” after the Climate Tax Bill debate.

Boxer’s Math Does Not Add Up

Click Here to Read Letter: 

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) claimed today that Democrats had the support of 54 U.S. Senators for the Climate Tax Bill. Directly contradicting Boxer’s assertion is a letter signed on June 6 by ten Democratic Senators explicitly stating they “cannot support final passage” of the Climate Tax Bill. The letter indicates that Boxer would apparently only have had at most 45 votes today to support final passage of the bill. (Democrat Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia, who was absent for today’s vote, had previously voted against bringing the bill to the floor on June 2.)


Junk Science: Time to Retire ‘Denier’
