Sustainability expert Andrew Winston:”The greening of the supply chain is the most important factor driving the sustainability agenda, and it is definitely not going away”
You can see the video of his speech here at Gaspee Gazette. Mr. Winston states “Wal-Mart is the most powerful company the world has ever seen, and in an effort to “green their supply chain” they are putting pressure on their suppliers to provide proof of their sustainability as a litmus test to doing business with Wal-Mart. He says this movement is “the force to watch” in the sustainability movement in corporate America. Winston states, | Read More »
Evaluating carbon reduction plans
Promote effective environmental policies and hold environmentalists accountable. As a mini case study, which is greener: solar panels on your house or getting a hybrid car?

New study: Carbon less impact on global warming than dihydrogen monoxide vapor
A new study authored by Susan Solomon, lead author of the study and a researcher at theNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, Colo. could explain why atmospheric carbon is not contributing to warming significantly. According to the study, as carbon levels have risen, the cold air at high altitudes over the tropics has actually grown colder. The lower temperatures at this “coldest point” have | Read More »
Are Enviros Like Watermelons–Green on the Outside, Red on the Inside?
One week ago, on the same day 192 nations converged on the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, America’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) drove a stake into the ground, declaring carbon emissions its dominion and an “endangerment” to human health. The coordination of the EPA’s announcement with the opening of the conference was transparent as a political opportunity and it conveyed desperation, likely a | Read More »
Contrived vs. Real Environmental Issues
At this time Barack Obama ponders whether he should go to Copenhagen in December to attend the climate change conference; as of this week he stated that he could go to use that as a means of promoting the Cap and Tax bill in Congress if that were needed. And, once again, Barack Obama would be wasting the taxpayers’ money to travel to Copenhagen in | Read More »
Carbon Taxes? Aren’t YOU a carbon based life form?
As Robert Heinlein put is so succintly, TANSTAAFL. Why Drill Here, Drill Now is not just a political slogan but necessary for the continuation of civilization as we know it and carbon taxes are the ruination of us all. Mostly Cajun explains the real world of energy and why expecting to replace "fossil fuels" anytime soon is as naive as expecting Obama to be honest | Read More »
CO2 Sequestration – What could go wrong?
Risks to underground drinking water from improperly managed carbon dioxide sequestration projects can include CO2 migration into the water table, causing leaching and mobilization of contaminants (such as arsenic, lead and salt), the EPA said. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory is evaluating the potential for leakage of sequestered CO2 to mobilize trace elements of contaminants such as arsenic, barium, cadmium, mercury, lead, antimony, selenium, zinc, and | Read More »
I’m watching the History Channel as I blog and comment, and the channel is presenting various ways in which human beings might go extinct or the world might end. I wait and wonder why I’m not seeing Anthroprogenic Global Warming/Climate Change. The reason is that it’s their “Number One Threat” to human survival, and so saved for last. And here they start talking about how | Read More »
AGW: Making Up the “Science” as We Go Along?
Do you ever get the feeling that the proponents of Anthropogenic Global Warming are just winging it? The mildest conclusion I can draw from the following sequence of news reports is that there is a heck of a lot of science that remains to be done on the subject of global warming, the carbon cycle, and the complex interactions between the atmosphere, the oceans and | Read More »
How Not To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
The Carbon Trust says that people who are attempting use wind energy to supply their needs are actually contributing to carbon emissions in the universe. I am not surprised this critique of rooftop wind turbines is not front page news. This is the kind of fact the Al Gore’s of the world ignore.
