Insane, bonkers, utterly mad and downright Looney Tunes are all terms which could be used to describe actions a Yorkshire, England power plant is taking to meet Great Britain’s green agenda. Great Britain has coal, plenty of it, and the Drax power plant is one of the most efficient coal burning power plants in the country. So, what are they doing? Burning wood chips. Didn't environmentalists want to hug trees, not burn them?
It is a bad time to be a global warming believer. Seventeen straight years of climate stability will straighten even the most ardent true believers hockey stick. What is a good faithful servant to do with the facts that not even their most ardent leaders can deny?
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has called upon the U.S., its largest contributor, to levy a $500 billion a year carbon tax on consumers to offset what it calls “underpriced” oil, coal, and other energy products. This “mispricing” is supposedly leading to “excessive energy consumption,” which is “accelerating the depletion of natural resources” and contributing to climate change.
While most Americans will just accept the headlines created by the federal government’s declaration of a 2012 heat wave, and the agenda driven global warming pronouncements that followed, sometimes it is good to look behind the data. Because as Paul Harvey used to say, when you look behind the headlines you learn, “the rest of the story.”
A recent report by the World Bank has found that the world will warm by 4 degrees Celsius this century, and that the negative impacts of climate change will disproportionately hurt developing, poorer regions. But even if the U.S. and other nations were to voluntarily restrict carbon emissions — a questionable proposition in itself — other nations like China and India would certainly fill in the gap to meet the needs of their own growing populations.
We're just not hearing as much from the Marxists on the Left about global warming, these days. Could it be because even they realize the science is making it obvious to the world their emperor is as naked as a jaybird? And it keeps getting worse for them, like the information recently released and reported by the Daily Mail over the weekend which shows global warming stopped 16 years ago.
ABC News’ website headlined an article in June, “Emperor Penguins Threatened By Shrinking Kingdom,” with this just being one of a series of articles crying the alarm around the globe that the loveable penguin, star of both the big and small screen is endangered by global warming. Just one problem: Antarctica is actually cooling, not warming, and ice flows on the continent are increasing.
Though more and more people are learning about it all the time, relatively few people have heard of Agenda 21. No, it's not a 1950s sci-fi thriller, nor is it a modern-day spy flick...but it is sinister, and it holds within it real threats every bit as dangerous as the ones in the movies can pretend to be. Agenda 21 is a United Nations (UN) environmentalist initiative designed to bring the environmentalist agenda right to your doorstep (literally) at the local level.
Gov. Mitt Romney has been talking a good game on energy policy. He will approve the Keystone XL Pipeline on his first day in office, and opposes the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) regulation of greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) through the Clean Air Act. Those are all good signs from a free-market point of view. But where the concept of man-made global warming is concerned, the Republican presidential nominee is not exactly a skeptic.
I've always said "green" jobs are a load of proverbial Barbara Streisand. They usually involve paying people for crap and to do crap that, if normal market forces were in play, no one would ever pay for. Of course, you really know you're going to be taken to the cleaners when you mix environmental extremism, union thugs and government--like Project Veritas found when fake company “Earth Supply and Renewal” met with union thugs and bureaucrats to discuss how to make money on BS work projects under the auspices of "green jobs."Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
