The Climate-Industrial Complex, or Green Energy Whores

    I am RedState’s self-described energy whore. My life and my livelihood are wrapped around the oil and gas industry. With that fact fully disclosed, a reader can consider the possibility that Vladimir’s opinions may be influenced by self-interest. When it comes to energy policy, the industry voice (and that of anyone with an industry connection) is deemed by the current Administration to be tainted and | Read More »

    Nationwide No-on-Cap-and-Trade Tax Rally; Bonus Policy Details

    Dear Friends: This is both a save-the-date request, as well as a clarion call to action. Many of you have been following Henry Waxman’s actions to push-forth a free enterprise-endangering, liberty-impeding monstrosity nicknamed “Cap-and-Trade”. The details are provided HERE. Our little group of agitators, the Southern California Tax Revolt Coalition, is calling for a nationwide protest of this bill, perhaps inspiring some wobbly Republicans and | Read More »

    LA striving to become greenest city

    The city of Los Angeles is leading the way in energy conservation by wasting electricity and tax dollars. From nbclosangeles dot com: In some areas, the city has been leaving streetlights on all day long, needlessly burning electricity in broad daylight. Even worse, residents tell us they’ve been calling the city’s 311 line for months, asking the city to turn off the lights during the | Read More »

    Beware of “our deteriorating atmosphere”

    Global Warming will now be referred to as “our deteriorating atmosphere”. Environmentalists are afraid that the problem with global warming is not that it is based on junk science and completely absurd on its face, but rather the phrase “global warming”. From the New York Times: The term turns people off, fostering images of shaggy-haired liberals, economic sacrifice and complex scientific disputes, according to extensive | Read More »

    Is It About Windmills Or Windfalls?

    Promoted from the diaries by Skanderbeg.  Do be sure to read down to the tabulation of the incipient green oligopoly that’s trying to coalesce around all this “AGW” nonsense…. After the “global warming” terminology morphed into “climate change”, the EPA dedicated a large section of their website to the issue. With EPA now able to provide the comprehensive information, the challenge to curtail “climate change” | Read More »

    Carbon Cap and Tax: Environmental Oppression You Can Count On

    This week, as the stock market continues its perilous slide towards an unknown abyss; the House Energy and Commerce Committee will begin hearings on a national energy tax bill that will cost every American household $3,128 a year for the “right” to emit carbon dioxide. The discussion draft of the American Clean Energy and Security Act (ACES) has four primary objectives (a renewable energy production | Read More »

    Science Advisor John Holdren admits Administration has no clue on Global Warming

    In an interview on April 8, 2009, John Holdren, Dear Leader’s Science Advisor states: “We don’t understand the system well enough to predict it’s responses in detail.” Now, I am somewhat confused. I have been brainwashed and brow beaten by Al Gore and his ‘consensus’ of experts to believe that they have this Global Climate System all down to a predictable science. They know EXACTLY | Read More »

    Quick, somebody tell Al Gore and Hussein the Usurper

    Global warming is complete rubbish! Remember when “global warming” was going to cause more hurricanes? It is not happening. In fact, since 2005, America has only been struck by one major hurricane. From WorldNetDaily: A new study by Florida State University researcher Ryan Maue shows worldwide cyclone activity – typhoons, as well as hurricanes – has reached at least a 30-year low. Two more studies | Read More »

    The recent collapse of Tropical Storm activity. I’ll wager the irony is not lost on the doctoral student in meteorolgy from Florida, the erstwhile Dr. Maue.  Tropical storm activity worldwide has completely collapsed, by any measure, although his statistics bear some semblence of mathematical rigor.   He bothers to gauge cumulative cyclone energy rather than rely on the digital staccato of the annual named-storms lists.  A more layman-friendly illustration of Altantic hurricane seasons, and | Read More »

    Calling Bulls**t on Climate Change (But in a Rational, Open-Minded Way), Part I

    In order to achieve the Ultimate State of Enlightenment re: Climate Change Policy, we have been encouraged to swallow Al Gore’s panicky conclusion (that We Must Act Now! to Combat AGW!) in one giant leap of faith. Doubters are marginalized with the label “Global Warming Deniers”. Using simple mathematical and decision-making principles, you, too, can be a bona-fide Climate Change Skeptic, and not a Global | Read More »

    When at first you don’t succeed…

    …try again, but don’t lead with your real agenda. Two key leaders of the Evangelical Climate Initiative (ECI) have decided that evangelicals aren’t buying the ECI’s claims that human activity–and especially the use of fossil fuels–is driving climate change. Time to re-tool the message. Publicly, Jim Jewell (erstwhile Chief Operating Officer of the ECI) is perfectly willing to distance himself from those who would make global | Read More »

    The Land of Oz: The Absurd Cost of Clean Energy

    So, clean energy and green jobs are the future. We can save the world by revolutionizing the way we produce electricity.  So what would it take for the world to achieve the high goals of people like NASA’s James Hansen? A Wired Magazine blogger recently sat through a lecture that crunches the numbers: [T]he land area dedicated to renewable energy (“Renewistan”) would occupy a space | Read More »

    The Goracle

    The day after a snow and ice storm hit Washington D.C., Al Gore aka Algore aka the Goracle, was warning the senate about Global Warming.  Gore, a blithering idiot by any normal person’s standards, was in front of the right audience.  In fact, the abomination that is the U.S. Senate, provided the Goracle the only forum in which he wouldn’t be laughed out of the | Read More »
