    An environmental group that stands accused of overstepping its inspection authority and trespassing across a Virginia farm also tried to have video cameras installed to monitor the property. An officer of the Piedmont Environmental Council proposed that one of that group’s board members “runs a security company and could offer the use of security cameras to record visitors,” according to documents examined by The Daily Signal. Martha Boneta, who owns Liberty Farm in Paris, Va., last year sued the Piedmont Environmental Council and others because, she said, PEC encouraged Fauquier County officials to harass her with citations of zoning violations...

    Both sides of the political debate think the other is way off in their thought patterns. The Left loves to repeat their mantra that the Right is ignorant of science. Unfortunately, it proves out that the left frequently blindly adheres to a policy developed to forward their agenda and then shames everyone else into myopically following their policies or asserts they are Neanderthals. This is the exact pattern they have followed in attempting to spread a ban of plastic bags at retailers. I first became interested in this when I saw the burgeoning flock of do-gooders coming to the grocery...
  • GM food off the menu in Parliament's restaurants- ministers telling public to drop their opposition

    GM foods are banned from restaurants in the Houses of Parliament despite government claims it is ‘probably safer’ than other meals. Government ministers are demanding that ordinary families should abandon their reluctance to eat genetically modified food, however they are banned from MPs’ plates. This week the food and farming secretary, Owen Paterson, launched an extraordinary propaganda campaign to encourage the nation to accept GM crops and farming. He bolstered his campaign with claims that some seven million children in the Far East could have been saved from blindness or death in the last 15 years if only people had...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Protesters rallied in dozens of cities Saturday as part of a global protest against seed giant Monsanto and the genetically modified food it produces, organizers said. Organizers said "March Against Monsanto" protests were held in 52 countries and 436 cities, including Los Angeles where demonstrators waved signs that read "Real Food 4 Real People" and "Label GMOs, It's Our Right to Know."… The U.S. Senate this week overwhelmingly rejected a bill that would allow states to require labeling of genetically modified foods.

    Genetic engineering in agriculture has disappointed many people who once had hopes for it. Excluding, of course, those who’ve made money from it, appropriately represented in the public’s mind by Monsanto. That corporation, or at least its friends, recently managed to have an outrageous rider slipped into the 587-page funding bill Congress sent to President Obama.[1] The rider essentially prohibits the Department of Agriculture from stopping production of any genetically engineered crop once it’s in the ground, even if there is evidence that it is harmful.

    The Earth - when it rocks! Sunday was Earth Day, and in honor of the occasion, I’d like to say that as far as I’m concerned the Earth can go to hell. The Earth — for those of you who may have fallen behind on your reading — is a piece of rock trapped in a slow death spiral into a cauldron of exploding plasma which, for lack of a better word, we’ll call the sun. Because that’s its name. There is exactly one interesting or worthwhile thing about this hunk of doomed space debris, and that is: it happens...

    Consequences: The green lobby assured everyone it knew what it was doing when it got a judge to cut water to Central Valley farmers to save the delta smelt. But while the Valley economy is now ruined, it hasn't helped the smelt. Some day, environmental radicals will be held accountable for crimes against the ecosystem — the human ecosystem. Back in 2007, they convinced federal Judge Oliver Wanger to rule that the Endangered Species Act gave the federal government the right to cut water to thousands of farmers in California's Central Valley to protect a 3-inch baitfish called the delta...

    It’s outrageous to see how environmentalists blow a gasket every time someone calls them on their distorted ideas and misdirected visions. It is true that this massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico wouldn't be near the catastrophe it is if oil companies were allowed to drill closer to shore in shallower water. However environmentalists got their way in getting legislation preventing this. The Global Warming issue is the biggest lie of all time. Scientific evidence is there disproving every aspect of this farce....
  • Environmental movement responsible for Gulf Oil Disaster

    The environmental catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico with the millions of gallons of crude oil is due to the limits imposed on oil companies by environmentalists and their lobbyists in Washington by implementing restrictions on drilling sites. The bottom line is this gusher at 5000ft. below sea level is almost impossible to control because at such depths any measure used to control the leak that would be successful at shallower depths is either useless or cannot be done because of the difficulty in reaching the source.

    In recent weeks while addressing Tea Party rallies here on the left coast, I ask the assembled patriots what appears to be an odd question: "Would all those from the former Soviet Union please raise your hands?" A notable number of hands are always raised -- the San Francisco Bay Area is home to a diverse population. I then ask another curious question: "What does April 22 signify to you?" Without exception, someone will shout with great displeasure, "Lenin's birth date!" The crowd clearly sees that I'm on to something. I next ask the former Soviets, "And as a young...

    As a psychotherapist, I try my best to calm down my anxious clients. But in this case, I inadvertently triggered a panic attack. My twenty-something client Emma, a survivor of the Berkeley public schools, had a coughing fit during our session. I helpfully got up to get her some water. When I handed her a cup, she looked at it, incredulous. Her voice quivering, she asked, "Is this Styrofoam?" I said yes. She stared at the cup, mesmerized by this forbidden fruit. When she finally found her words, she said, "I've never seen Styrofoam before. We learned in school that...

    Here is audio of "The Great One" - Mark Levin - on radio where he blasted the radical Leftist Environmental movement that he says, hates the working men and women of America. They are "the enemy of the working man," he said. Levin pointed out that it is really incompatible for union workers to be in the same party with the "Sierra Club" Environmental wackos. He pointed out how they hate Coal Miners, Oil-Field Workers, Steel Workers, Truck Drivers, etc. Levin also talked about the fact the Obama Administration through the EPA is now ready to move against coal mining.

    If, like everyone else from New England to Virginia, you spent the last 24 hours watching the global warming fall from the sky, you may agree that Sen. Jim DeMint could be on to something. The South Carolina Republican took to the Twitter-sphere to declare that the region's second major blizzard in less than a week must be a sign from God. That is, he said, "It's going to keep snowing . . . until Al Gore cries 'Uncle!' " Fat chance. In fact, the usual suspects quickly took to the Web to declare that the blizzards of 2010 actually...

    Chalk up another 500 to the list of jobs President Obama will need to create or save. A Pittsburgh-based coal company, CONSOL Energy, will lay off nearly 500 of its West Virginia workers next year and its CEO blames environmentalists dead-set against mountaintop mining who have waged “nuisance” lawsuits for the job loss. But CONSOL Energy’s political problems are not unique to the mining industry, which has suffered under the Obama Administration. The Environmental Protection Agency is already holding 79 surface mining permits in West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee. The EPA says these permits could violate the Clean Water...

    Check out the hysterical reaction of the DUmmies to the Obama Administration's decision to open up 381 of 17,000,000 acres of Tongass National Forest in Alaska to logging. Some of the loons went so far as to attack anyone who pointed out the bigger picture as a freeper. Fun stuff. Kool Aid drinkers of all stripes are losing the taste.

    U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan is reported to be on the short list to replace Justice David Souter on the Supreme Court. If she were a Republican on the short list for a court opening, Senate Democrats would move heaven and Earth to turn a 1996 contretemps into a major scandal. On the evidence so far, such a political hit job would not be fair. What is fair, though, is to insist that not all the evidence is in, and to demand more answers. As the Wall Street Journal's "Political Diary" reported May 21, Ms. Kagan was in the middle...

For the next 2 ½ days, I will be assuming the role of your humble correspondent at this year’s International Conference on Climate Change – where the only alarm I expect to hear will be waking me for breakfast. Each evening, I will attempt to homogenize my notes from both interviews and countless expert panel discussions I’ve attended that day. There are some amazingly impressive names here at the beautiful Marriott Marquis in Times Square. And many will be presenting speeches and taking questions at the plenary meal sessions, as well as at the...
