Marita Noon: More taxpayer dollars for green energy?
Despite the green energy failures and harmful impacts of wind energy–such as it can’t survive without government subsidies; costs more; kills endangered eagles, other birds and bats; reduces property values; is bad land use; and more–the Obama administration is continuing the push for green energy and has just approved a $150m loan guarantee for the Cape Wind project.

University of Wisconsin Gets $5 Million to Create Enviro “Science Fiction”
The University of Wisconsin Madison has received nearly $5 million from the federal government to create a “science fiction” project modeling environmental scenarios for the Yahara Watershed in Wisconsin. The project assumes that climate change will create a serious crisis for the watershed, which includes the City of Madison and surrounding suburbs, and in four scenarios researchers game out what could happen by the year | Read More »
Boko Haram reveals motives behind kidnapping
While the the Obama administration has been taking some flak for its reliance on hashtag diplomacy as the primary means for dealing with serious international situations, the recent #bringbackourgirls campaign appears to be showing some results.

Washington Post (!) editorial writer (!!) slams administration over global warming hysteria.
That it showed up in the Washington Post amuses me; that it showed up under their PostPartisan label makes me anticipate the screaming even more.

Crucifixions, Porn and Other Sick Perversions At The USEPA.
People hold varying opinions on whether Global Warming is occurring. They differ on whether it is a cataclysmic occurrence if it happens. People hold radically different opinions on what should and what can be done about the issue if it were to become a problem. However, I’d argue that anyone not infected with a pseudo-religious zealotry would be concerned if they knew the extent to | Read More »

Global warming is a laughable farce… and John Kerry is a degenerate liar
In 2005, the United Nations Eco-alarmist Division predicted that by 2010 global warming would “displace 50 million coastal inhabitants around the world.” Rising sea levels, diminishing water-tables, and – New Word Alert! – “desertification” would make homeless the equivalent of eight New York Cities…. Folks, it was going to be BAD…. Millions dead. MASS starvation. There was even a rumor that Al Gore would have | Read More »
Erick’s hilarious review of Darren Aronofsky’s new film “Noah” makes it sound ripe for the “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ treatment. John Nolte at Breitbart salutes the technical achievements and solid acting performances, while condemning the overall message of the movie as “brilliantly sinister anti-Christian filmmaking.” Personally, I was of the “let’s give the movie a chance before we condemn it” school during the last few | Read More »
Seven Rough Questions Corporations, Eco-Groups Avoid when they Proclaim ‘We Must Stop Global Warming’
When a prominent person, group or corporation exploits a situation to promote an immediate singular solution to a controversial problem they deem to be settled while having no personal expertise on the topic and in the face of plausible fact-based criticisms of the basic problem, it’s a natural reaction to ask if they fully examined all aspects of it before adopting their final position. On | Read More »
The Supreme Court’s February Docket
Having completed the January sitting of the Supreme Court, they heard oral argument in 12 cases. Four of them could be considered major cases. In National Labor Relations Board vs. Noel Canning, the Court was asked to wade into the concept of recess appointments and whether Obama’s appointment of members of the NLRB was constitutional. Although the government made it appear that all hell would | Read More »
What President Obama Will Predictably Get Wrong About Global Warming In Tonight’s State of The Union Show
Do the scientists and politicians that strongly seek to reduce Greenhouse Gasses want this goal enough to badly jeopardize US relations with Russia, China, South Korea and India? Are they so concerned about this problem that they would willingly pursue a diplomatic and trade strategy that would potentially provide any nations casus belli similar to that cited by Japan to justify the December 7, 1941 | Read More »

The Church of Global Warming hearts communism
Quick show of hands: who’s surprised to learn the global warming fanatics think communism is super-awesome? Oh, I know what you’re thinking, People Who Have Your Hands Down. You’ve seen what communist countries look like. They’re absolute environmental disasters, horrifying wastelands of garbage and toxic pollution. You’re wondering how anyone could possibly review the history of communism and come to the conclusion that it’s a political philosophy | Read More »
Watermelon Environmentalists Cause Global Warming
Brett Stevens was both humorous and thought-provoking when he announced a while back that “Liberalism Caused Global Warming.” I have political evidence that suggests that he may have even had an empirical point. You see there are two types of environmental activists. Honest ones believe that the government should assume greater powers in order to prevent environmental pollution from doing terrible things to people and places they care about. Dishonest environmental activists (AKA Watermelons*) just believe the government should get more power over the lives and wallets of the citizenry. The environment provides an excellent vehicle to usurp power and control the property of other citizens.
United Nations Climate Chief Christiana Figueres is clearly a dishonest environmental activist. She informs us that Communist China, the world’s leading source of CO2 pollution for several consecutive years since 2007, has the right type of governmental system to fight Global Warming. This can only bring me back to questioning why Christiana Figueres calls herself an environmentalist. If she wants to reduce the extent to which human pollution could potentially warm the terrestrial climate, she should not encourage the world emulate a nation that emits 25% of the world’s industrial CO2 pollution on an annual basis. Not only that, they get about 25% as much GDP per ton of CO2 as the United States and about 13% as much GDP per ton of CO2 as Germany or Japan.
