Green Tea Not Welcome at Tea Party

"We need all forms of energy in the mix." is a common statement. This is like saying one needed to add stocks from Bernie Madoff into their portfolios so they had all sources in the mix.

Bag the Bag Ban

Another study I am guessing will never be done is how much purchasing of other plastic bags increases after the ban. As noted by the article and other commenters, these grocery bags have been reused. Now that they are gone, something has to line wastebasket, pick up pet droppings, etc and plastic bags are what people use. So now they will have to purchase the plastic bags--or was that the goal all along? No matter--you still have the same number of bags, just from a new source. "Problem" NOT solved.
No, blaming the radical environmentalists for someone who voluntarily chose an occupation they knew was hazardous and could result in death makes you equivalent to the Left and their insistence that corporations are killing people. It makes the supposedly rational right look just as irrational and reactive and without thought as the left. Fire fighting is a dangerous job for which these people volunteered. We are sad they died, but no one "killed" them. They died in the line of duty.

Finite oil is based on it being a fossil fuel. It is very likely NOT a fossil fuel but rather forms deep in the earth on a continuous basis. Plus, methane can be created from many sources, not just the NG wells. So switching to NG would mean we can make our own fuel. And just because we have plenty does not mean no one is looking for other fuels. It's not true everyone sits around doing nothing until the fuel runs out. Maybe many people find that easy to believe because they cannot plan ahead, but there are always very smart businessmen looking for new ideas to bring to market. The market value of a new fuel with nearly unlimited supply would be a huge score, oil or no oil.

The bats should be so lucky to be deafened. The turbines explode their lungs (due to pressure changes) and kill them. It's gruesome. Then all the bugs and mosquitoes the bats would have eaten thrive. Then we need more insecticide or suffer crop losses. Green is much more cruel and damaging than it claims.

Except where the roads are two-tracks and there is no maintenance. Not all roads are built and maintained by society as a whole.

Top Television Shows Today Full of Garbage

Actually, it seems many blogs don't allow the word CR**. I'm not sure why. Maybe because like the list of TV shows endorsed by the writer, individual preferences vary widely. Flashpoint was hardly suitable for children, "V" was a mediocre scifi show and "Seinfeld" was just plain dumb. However, have anyone list their preferences and you'll get different rankings from all. What is fit TV is very open to interpretation.

Really? The Chicken as Endangered Species

So cats are really bad hunters and would starve if there were not people feeding them? Is that why we call them "domestic"? Or is this just a cat typing in an answer to justify its murderous tendencies?

Actually, for now, the sage grouse plan in Wyoming has had a chilling effect on placement of wind plants. While there is some monkeying around with area boundaries to favor development, there is also the realization that if sage grouse core areas are not preserved, the Feds may show up. How long this will last is hard to say.
