Canadian oil is supposedly worse for the environment, so stopping the Keystone pipeline will help the planet. Umm…how? Instead of moving the oil in a safe way and being processed in US refineries operating under EPA regulations, the oil will now be transported across the (Canadian) Rockies where it will be loaded onto giant tankers [Continue]
Gobar Gas Go read the whole article, it’s three pages, but there are lots of pictures. This is very interesting technology. Basically you make a concrete pit with a domed top and dump in poop (people as well as animal) and you end up with good fertilizer (better than raw poop) and a biogas that [Continue]
Climate cuttings 33: “General reaction seems to be that the CRUgate emails are genuine, but with the caveat that there could be some less reliable stuff slipped in.

Y’all heard about the idiot in Berlin who decided to hop into the polar bear cages, right? She got mauled, but not killed. What the hell are some people thinking?
Bureaucrats Or Radium Dials — Which Poses A Greater Danger? Go read the whole thing, it’s a little long, but it’s crazy. Basically the feds sold surplus airplane instruments, some of which have radium painted dials so they glow in the dark, the parts were stored for 50+ years and gradually sold, the radium level [Continue]
Obama’s Cruel Tax on the Poor: “…For a long time we really haven’t been able to find out who Obama is. But now, as the Anointed Ruler makes his triumphal parade to Mount Olympus, his arrogance is showing. We caught a glimpse when he sneered at religion, saying that we turn to it only out [Continue]
Transcript: “Let me sort of describe my overall policy. What I’ve said is that we would put a cap and trade system in place that is as aggressive, if not more aggressive, than anybody else’s out there. I was the first to call for a 100% auction on the cap and trade system, which means [Continue]
PETA Urges Ben & Jerry’s To Use Human Milk “Group Says Move Would Help Humans, Cows” Huh? If we switch over from cows to people milk, which by the way, ewwwwww!, eww!, why would we continue to breed and feed milk cows? Wouldn’t we just eat them? Does PETA seriously think that we’ll just keep [Continue]

Looks like the gist of the article that Brian Fischer wrote the other day, and that I quoted, is correct. Lynn Moses and the Clean Water Act “So why didn’t the U.S. Supreme Court hear Moses’s appeal from the Ninth Circuit decision? This guy is going to prison over this, and it would certainly appear [Continue]
No smoking hot spot “I DEVOTED six years to carbon accounting, building models for the Australian Greenhouse Office. I am the rocket scientist who wrote the carbon accounting model (FullCAM) that measures Australia’s compliance with the Kyoto Protocol, in the land use change and forestry sector.

“I would like to point out that before the introduction of cattle, millions upon millions of buffalo dominated the Great Plains of America. They were so thick you could not see where the herd started and where it ended. I can only assume that the anti-meat, manmade global warming crowd must believe that buffalo farts [Continue]
“The price of petrol should therefore become less relevant to Americans, as they cop on to themselves and buy more efficient cars. The Citroën C2 that I have does 70mpg! Try getting worked up putting 40 euro worth into the tank every 2.5 months – it’s impossible!” I see that a lot, or similar, but [Continue]
‘It’s true – we’re hypocrites over our huge carbon footprint,’ confesses Sting’s wife “Their claim to be eco-warriors has been met with cynicism in recent times. Sting, for instance, notched up an incredible number of air miles with his band’s world tour. And it was revealed that his wife Trudie Styler travels between their seven [Continue]
Today is Earth Day. I’m celebrating by converting my truck to Hydrocarbon fuels. Much more environmentally friendly! And, surprisingly, available at most gas stations around here. Guess I need to get this sticker, so everyone will know that I am now better than them.
I’m sure y’all have heard the screeching or the gnashing and moaning about peak oil, right? How we’re about to run out of oil. Or how we’re about to get to the point where there will only be less oil from now on, we’ve reached the “peak” of production. Wikipedia defines it as “the point [Continue]
Heard an envirowacko called a watermelon today. Took me a minute to get it, but it fits so well. Why? Because they are green on the outside and red on the inside. Scratch and envirowacko and you get a commie, every damn time.
How Government Makes Things Worse: “WHAT DO ethanol and the subprime mortgage meltdown have in common? Each is a good reminder of that most powerful of unwritten decrees, the Law of Unintended Consequences – and of the all-too-frequent tendency of solutions imposed by the state to exacerbate the harms they were meant to solve. Take [Continue]
