Eco-Hysteria We Pay For, Again

Not long ago, I wrote about the hysteria environmentalists cause in order to create “awareness”.  Years ago, we were all told we were using way too many paper bags at the supermarket.

Our Best Hopes, Not Our Worst Fears

Irrational Legislation

I heard from Friends of the Earth, a huge environmental organization, who one would think would favor the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act of 2007 being advanced by Senate Democrats. It would impose a cap-and-trade program to force reductions of so-called greenhouse gas emissions.

Green Scamming

Let’s say you’re planning to contract with a lawn service to tend to your property this spring. To put it simply, you want to hire a firm to mow the lawn. Time was, you could hire a neighborhood kid to do it, but now none of them will consider this or shoveling snow as a means to put some extra change in their pocket.

Will Kyoto turn Europe into Cuba?

The EU steel industry is terrified that Europe’s new cap-and-trade system of penalizing steel-plant emissions will cost 50,000 of its 300,000 steel-industry jobs. But don’t worry, if the EU gets serious about cap-and-trade, it will simply violate the rules of the World Trade Organization and start taxing imported steel for the CO2 emissions from Indian and Chinese steel plants.
