Earth Day: Kwanzaa for liberals

    Earth Day: Kwanzaa for liberals

    Here we are. Earth Day. Yay. Earth Day was founded back in 1970, making it, according to the figuring of Vox’s Ezra Klein, damned old. Just like the Declaration of Independence or the Magna Carta or one of those really old documents that no one understands. Back when Earth Day was started the world teetered on the brink of destruction. Man was just one more | Read More »

    Happy Earth Day: I want my $10,000

    Earth Day is the only “holiday” you don’t see advertised in the greeting card aisle. But we should buy our Congressmen and Senators Earth Day cards.

    Mine will include a bill.

    I figure I’ll charge them $10,000 (which would put the cost of Earth Day at somewhere around $3 trillion over the last 44 years).

    Why do we need an Earth Day? The Earth is just fine without it.

    Senator Sheldon Whitehouse And Lizz Winstead Refuse To Let A Crisis Go To Waste

    I apologize. Lizz Winstead is no longer part of The Daily Show. An earlier version of this article strongly implied that she still directed the content of Daily Show jokes. Don’t Let The Crisis Go To Waste Senator Whitehouse ‘This tornado is in Oklahoma so clearly it has been ordered to only target conservatives,’ wrote comedian Lizz Winstead, in a tweet, | Read More »

    Dishonest Environmental Scientists Have Pretty Much Killed Earth Day

    It was a damp, rainy Saturday in the land of Global Warming and vapid, rentier capitalism. My little boy and I went to run in his Montessori School’s Annual Spring Zing 5K fundraiser for the school. When I picked up the swag-bag that included my race shirt and number, I found a green-colored water planet that encouraged us all to save the planet in honor of Earth Day. Then I remembered something: it was the first time all week I had heard jack about the !MANDATORY! and creepily ubiquitous Earth Day.

    What has happened to America’s faddishly PC !MANDATORY! celebration? Our occasion for compulsory fun has gone from being like a nationwide company picnic you pretend to enjoy if you can’t squirm away from, to being an embarrassment to those who once lauded its !MANDATORY! civic virtues. Earth Day has collapsed under the irresistible weight of its own brave sierra.*

    I personally decided that Earth Day had completed its predictable fridge-nuking operation about two winters ago thanks to George Monbiot. His column “That snow outside is what global warming looks like” did the trick.

    Earth Day 2012: The Day the Tide Turned

    Happy Earth Day 2012, everyone! One day we may look back on this as the time when the tide began to recede – that being the tide of Anthropogenic Global Warming hysteria. The canary in this metaphorical mine is the Discovery Channel, long a mass purveyor of AGW porn. In its new seven-part series “Frozen Planet” Discovery confronts distraught polar bears and calving glaciers in | Read More »

    The Pelican Brief

    It appears, using the popular phrase by Kanye West, that our president hates pelicans, and fishermen, and the Gulf of Mexico.  Instead of doing something to fix the continued gush of oil into the gulf, the president is meandering about the country giving endorsements to the Huffington Post and caterwauling against the banks.  This kind of inaction would have caused the lame-brained media to excoriate | Read More »

    Did you enjoy Earth Day?

    Really? I think that was rather rude of you, considering that it’s 34 years too late to save the planet, or maybe 24/9, and the planet’s no longer suitable for human habitation, and the pollution’s long since killed us all, and of course the eight billion people that died of hunger for the last four decades, thanks to all the famines, and mass starvation, and | Read More »

    On this Earth Day

    I fired up the charcoal grill to eat some delicious meat and . . . oh . . . I breathed, thereby expelling carbon dioxide into the air to contribute to global warming. That reminds me, now that the Obama administration has decided to regulate CO2 does that mean we’re going to have to apply to the government to procreate since every new baby is | Read More »

    Happy Birthday Lenin

    For Obama voters, that’s Vladimir Ilych Lenin, not John Lennon of the Beatles. How fitting, that the eco-lunatics have designated Earth Day to coincide with the day of their spiritual leader’s birth.  A more fitting day could not have been chosen. Vladimir Lenin lead the Bolshevik/October Revolution that enslaved Russia and most of Eastern Europe for over 80 years and killed tens of millions of | Read More »

    Happy Earth Day! Hope the Sun decides to play along.

    After reading an article on the excellent “Watts up with That”, I got to read a transcript from Charles Osgood on how any effect of global warming done by man can easily be outdone by the sun: I know you’ve already got a lot to worry about as it is, but something rather odd is going on — on the Sun. The Sun normally undergoes | Read More »

    In the beginning there was nothing

    And nothing decided it didn’t want to be alone any longer. So out of nowhere, nothing became something and exploded, becoming everything. On this earth day, I can’t help reflecting on what was created for us to enjoy here. Looking around at the sun, sky, trees, grass, clouds, and oceans, I am awed at just how well designed everything is. Yet some will look at | Read More »
