Everyone loves irony and this tale has irony in spades. Why they chose to go to sea across the North Atlantic in April escapes me. The seas and winds are guaranteed to be awful. Most likely they faced a strenuous expedition to the peak of the ice
The Obama administration waded deeper into climate regulation, proposing new standards for alternative motor fuels and setting off a debate among ethanol producers and environmentalists about scientific assumptions that could be worth billions of dol
Eye-opening, incisive, brilliant! The US has the fastest growing population of any industrial nation, and one of the world's highest consumption rates. Barn burner of a read! This will change the way you look at growth.
Yet anyone who looks at the globe knows that the present well watered ecosystems are a small fraction of the globe’s land area. The Sahara leaps out, but so too does Western North America and most of Asia. Well watered is not how you would describe m
Kyoto-style emissions cuts can only ever be an expensive distraction from the real business of weaning ourselves off fossil fuels. The fact is, carbon remains the only way for developing countries to work their way out of poverty. Coal burning provid
Reclaiming the Earth one garden at a time will reclaim the Garden of Eden for humanity and it will be many times larger than the original and as rich and productive. I cannot begin to imagine just how many people could live on Earth as this comes to
There are now 46,000 pieces of plastic per square kilometre of the world's oceans, killing a million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals each year. Worse still, there seems to be nothing we can do to clean it up.
Facts have a funny way of getting in the way of good ideas—take Carbon Cap and Trade for example.
“Today one billion people live in slums, 90 percent of whom are in developing countries,” said Obaid. “The battle to cut extreme poverty will be waged in the slums.
Earth Day, April 22, 2009, galloped into town like John Wayne, but busted leather hightailing away like Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, and the Hole in the Wall Gang.
Harvard biologist E.O. Wilson described the human race as, “The most devastating meteorite to hit the planet.”
The Environmental Protection Agency concluded greenhouse gases linked to climate change "endanger public health and welfare," setting the stage for regulating them under federal clean air laws. The action marks the first step toward imposin
Obama, Brzezinski and Al Gore have worked closely with Communist backed environmental fronts...to promote the falsehood of significant global climate change...to scare the world and the US into paying such a global tax to “save the planet.”
It’s amazing how millions can look at a steam locomotive bearing down on them and continue walking on the tracks away from the train so they won’t see it when it runs over them.
For more than a decade, Norwegian oil company Statoil Hydro has been stripping climate change–causing carbon dioxide (CO2) from natural gas in its Sleipner West field and burying it beneath the seabed rather than venting it into the atmosphere. Th
What I experience there is a society that does pretty well with VERY little energy, all things considering. Mind you, not 'pretty well' by any standard of the Western world. But survival - and happiness! - are pretty much possible. Oddly, a f
There is a crushing need to create a system of representation that is bound to the land itself and can speak to the interests of the land, one river valley at a time. A river valley needs it rivers to be protected and spared excessive damage. It need
A full third or two billion people lack adequate drinking water daily. Over 3.0 billion humans suffer from malnutrition. Over 18 million human beings die of starvation or starvation related diseases annually.
Bicycle coast to coast 2009: June 1st through September 1st. Three month, 3,800 miles, slow moving, media grabbing bicycle ride across America. San Francisco, CA to Washington, DC. Instead of reading the news: become the news!
Writing in the current issue of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers report that despite decades of forest recovery, Wisconsin's woodlands still only hold about two-thirds the carbon of pre-settlement times - sugge
“Creation destroys as it goes, throws down one tree for the rise of another, but ideal mankind would abolish death, multiply itself millions upon millions, rear up city upon city, save every parasite alive, until the accumulation of mere existence is
He said, “The solution is to be smarter about how we grow. We can create more economic growth, 30 to 40 percent more, while using the same amount of energy.” To that ridiculous statement, I say balderdash, rubbish, twaddle, claptrap and tripe.
[these taxpayer paid guys are f'n crazy!] The concept of using technology to purposely cool the climate is called geoengineering. One option proposed by a Nobel Prize-winning scientist includes shooting pollution particles into the upper atmosphe
This week, Time Magazine reported on the relentless extinction rates facing millions of fellow creatures around our planet. Scientifically, it’s called “The Sixth Extinction Session” and humans cause it.
The federal government has opened a criminal investigation into the capture and death of the last known jaguar in the United States, amid accusations that a biologist working for the state illegally baited a trap to attract the cat.
Al Gore gets it backwards. First the temperature rises due to the activity of the sun, then CO2 increases. CO2 does not drive climate change, the sun does. CO2 is a result of global warming, not the cause of it.
“Most Western elites continue urging the wealthy West not to stem the migrant tide, but to absorb our global brothers and sisters until their horrid ordeal has been endured and shared by all--ten billion humans packed onto an ecologically devastated
The sun works on a pretty well known 11-year cycle of activity, all measured by sunspots and solar flares. But like the stock market, the sunspot cycle is unpredictable. And just when astronomers thought it had hit bottom, it went lower. It has been
Democrats in the House of Representatives announced a sweeping plan to change how the nation produces and uses energy in order to reduce the risk of dangerous climate change. No environmental legislation in America has ever attempted such wide-reachi
Mike Renzulli asks you to join with him today in participating in an idea furthered by the Competitive Enterprise Institute to celebrate human achievement in response to Earth Hour.
