  • Protesters are Environmental Hypocrites

    Few things pollute the earth more than when leftists gather to protest. Let’s reminisce for old time’s sake. Leftists described the 2011 Occupy Movement as a breath of fresh air, although movement trash rats deposited their bowel movements on police cars and Zuccotti Park doorsteps. They also left tons of foul rubbish on streets. Democrats are all about handouts, so maybe they should have handed out doggie doo bags. How about Earth Day 2014? Leftists worried about global warming trashed the protest grounds, then left others to worry about the mess. It should have been called a “garbage march.” Did...

    It should be the obligation of older citizens to try to improve the prospects for their successors. But, here in California, as seen in a new report issued by the Chapman Center for Demographics and Policy, we seem to have adopted an agenda designed to make things tougher for them.Millennials everywhere face many challenges. The U.S. Census Bureau estimates that, even when working full-time, they earn $2,000 less than the same age group made in 1980. Nationwide, a millennial with a college degree and college debt, according to a recent analysis of Federal Reserve data, earns about the same as...

    Recent science and climate marches demonstrated how misinformed, indoctrinated, politicized and anti-Trump these activists are – and how indifferent about condemning millions in industrialized nations and billions in developing countries to green energy poverty. Amid it all, University of Michigan history professor Juan Cole helped illustrate how the marchers became so ignorant, insensitive and intolerant. It’s always amazed me how frequently academics, journalists, politicians and students confuse poisonous carbon monoxide (CO) with plant-fertilizing carbon dioxide (CO2). But Professor Cole’s April 17 article in The Nation presents unfathomable ignorance from the intellectual class that is “educating” our young people, while displaying...

    "Mankind is considered (by the radical environmentalists) the lowest and the meanest of all species and is blamed for everything.""Well tended garden is better than a neglected wood lot.""Reporters no longer ask for verification, thus they print charges no matter how outlandish they may seem, and once having done that, when the truth comes out, it's buried in the back page or never makes it on the air at all.""The reality is that zero defects in products plus zero pollution plus zero risk on the job is equivalent to maximum growth of government plus zero economic growth plus runaway inflation.""The...

    Saturday is Earth Day — an annual event first launched on April 22, 1970. The inaugural festivities (organized in part by then hippie and now convicted murderer Ira Einhorn) predicted death, destruction and disease unless we did exactly as progressives commanded. Sound familiar? Behold the coming apocalypse, as predicted on and around Earth Day, 1970: “Civilization will end within 15 or 30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind.” — Harvard biologist George Wald“We are in an environmental crisis which threatens the survival of this nation, and of the world as a suitable place of human habitation.”...

    "Danger, danger! Run for your lives!" A report was issued on November 22nd that the Arctic Ocean is warming up. Pointing to radical change in climate conditions, and, listen to this, the report said that within a few years it is predicted that, due to ice melt, the seas will rise and make most coastal communities uninhabitable. Sound familiar? Hello, everyone, Wild Bill for America here and THAT frightening report was issued in 1922. Ah, the politics of getting money and votes from frightened and silly people goes back quite a ways.

    “If you could pick just one thing to reduce poverty, by far you would pick energy,” Bill Gates has said. “Access to energy is absolutely fundamental in the struggle against poverty,” World Bank VP Rachel Kyte and Nobel Prize Laureate Dr. Amartya Sen agree. The UN Development Program calls energy “central to poverty reduction.” And International Energy Agency Executive Director Dr. Fatih Birol notes that “coal is raising living standards and lifting hundreds of millions of people out of poverty.” In fact, all fossil fuels are doing so.  Indeed, fossil fuels created the modern world and the housing, transportation, other...

    RUSH: This is a fascinating story. Have you…? You’re aware of — and, by the way, this is not unrelated, as it turns out. You’ve heard of Corporation A being fined X-number of millions or billions of dollars for soiling the snail darter or whatever, right? Have you ever wondered where the fine money goes? I doubt that you have. You probably think it just goes to the government. This is not the kind of thing that people dwell over. I have occasionally been curious, but I have never even thought much about it myself. I just assume that the...

    Climate Change: U.S. output of so-called greenhouse gases continues to decline, a new report shows. Even so, global warming activists are likely to be disappointed. The drop has nothing to do with their pet cause, alternative energy. That's right. The Environmental Protection Agency's yearly greenhouse gas emissions report noted that after rising slightly in 2013 and 2014, greenhouse gas output fell in 2015 — the most recent full year for which data are available. OK, but maybe it was a one-year fluke? Hardly. First off, the drop was significant in size — 2.2% on an annual basis, far too big...

    BISMARCK, N.D. – Federal and state officials announced plans Wednesday to accelerate cleanup at a camp in southern North Dakota that has housed hundreds and sometimes thousands of Dakota Access pipeline opponents. Officials fear the camp near the Cannonball River will soon flood due to warm weather and rapid snowmelt. They worry trash and debris left behind by people who have left in recent weeks might pollute the Missouri River and other nearby waterways. “With the amount of people that have been out there and the amount of estimated waste and trash out there, there is a good chance it...

    Environmentalism How many times have we seen this play out? Whether it’s the Earth Day mob leaving mountains of trash on the national Mall, Leo’s private jets and mega-yachts, or Al Gore’s enormous carbon footprint, it’s always the same. The people who scream the loudest about the environment always seem to be the worst offenders when it comes to the planet’s alleged destruction. Case in point, the Dakota Access Pipeline protest camp in North Dakota. A small army of hippies had nothing better to do, so they descended on the site, screamed about the evils of oil, then left. Now...
  • We Used Terrible Science to Justify Smoking Bans

    (Skip) A decade later, comprehensive smoking bans have proliferated globally. And now that the evidence has had time to accumulate, it’s also become clear that the extravagant promises made by anti-smoking groups—that implementing bans would bring about extraordinary improvements in cardiac health—never materialized. Newer, better studies with much larger sample sizes have found little to no correlation between smoking bans and short-term incidence of heart attacks, and certainly nothing remotely close to the 60 percent reduction that was claimed in Helena. The updated science debunks the alarmist fantasies that were used to sell smoking bans to the public, allowing for...

    “As the new Republican administration marches the English-speaking world out of Europe’s climate crusade transatlantic relations will surely plummet. At the same time, and to the mortification of Europeans, US-Russia relations will probably thaw. After all, it wasn’t Moscow that led a 30-year economic warfare campaign against America’s energy infrastructure via the ruse of Global Warming; no, that was our old “Allies” in Berlin. Insights into European deep-state machinations can be gleaned from Timothy Snyder’s Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning – published in 2015 by the German media conglomerate, Bertelsmann ....

    It’s the grand, exotic trees that especially call to Julianne Skai Arbor — the ones with gnarled outgrowths, tangled roots or hollows into which she can crawl. She likes to drape herself across swooping branches or ease herself into small spaces, exploring the habits, curves and textures of the different species she seeks out around the globe and absorbing their life force. The Sebastopol resident’s affection for the trees of the world has evolved into a unique vocation, one that forms the basis of a new coffee table book that features photographs of the author posing nude, enmeshed or intertwined...

    Environmentalists are really worried that your home's Christmas lights will ruin the planet. They worry that both the manufacturing processes of the lights and the electricity needed to power them will generate lots of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. They worry that the lights are manufactured in China and thus the amount of CO2 emissions generated during their construction is effectively unknowable. [Snip] Christmas lights aren't the only pressing issue troubling the minds of environmentalists this holiday season. The left-leaning news website Huffington Post encouraged readers to consider the environmental impact of Christmas trees in an article this month comparing the...

    Environmental groups are ready for a fight with President-elect Donald Trump. Trump’s victory in November’s presidential election was a shock to the green movement, which is now consolidating opposition to a GOP-controlled government bent on undoing President Obama’s environmental agenda. If the initial reaction was depression and despair, environmental activists now sound energized to take on Trump. "Our goal is to channel that sense of outrage into political pressure," said Jamie Henn, the co-founder of climate group 350.org.

    2016 will go down in history as the year when the world finally saw sense. Nowhere will this be more apparent than in America’s bold and brilliant decision to elect Donald Trump who, in my view, is set fair to be one of the truly great U.S. presidents. I realise that this isn’t obvious to some people—even those who claim to be on the conservative side of the political argument. But after a recent trip to D.C. for some private briefings, both with his transition teams and with key members of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy, I came away more confident...
