All of these projects would be great if they were a better mouse trap; if they were cheaper, more reliable and better land use. But they are not. They are more expensive, less reliable and use more land (or water).
Bill Clinton declared last week that Americans "look like a joke" because leading Republican presidential contenders decline to embrace the agenda of the global-warming alarmists. Presumably he had in mind Texas Governor Rick Perry, who says that "global warming has been politicized" and calls claims of a decisive human role in climate change an unproven theory. "You can't win the nomination of a major political party in the US," fumed the former president, "unless you deny science?"
Delaware’s political establishment thinks First State electricity consumers should subsidize the manufacturing of super-sized fuel cells, under the auspices of California-based Bloom Energy, to replace natural gas and coal-fired power plants in generating electricity.
Let’s take a look at what Barack Obama, like any president, is empowered to do and see if it squares with his actions.
Millions of Americans recently celebrated the demise of the Environmental Protection Agency’s job-killing ground-level ozone regulations. While a toast was appropriate, we shouldn’t drink too much champagne just yet.
Climate alarm campaigners make pitiful case that manmade climate change threatens coffee
From a land use, economic, environmental or raw materials perspective, wind is unsustainable.
I like to rattle the cage about liberal politicians. I think people need to have their cages rattled. In fact, I think we go easy on most of the people in charge. That includes voters who voted for Obama because they were blinded to the truth about how awful he was. It really should have been obvious to everyone. He is who we said he was.
Perhaps the most attractive feature of migrating our automobiles to compressed natural gas would be transferring the investment of capital and jobs into the American economy, finally breaking our foreign oil dependence.
Addressing the declining public alarm about global warming, Edward Maibach, director of the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University, said, “The erosion in both public concern and public trust about global warming should be a clarion call for people and organizations trying to educate the public about this important issue.”
Frustrated that Congress refused to enact cap-tax-and-trade, President Obama unleashed EPA to promulgate thousands of pages of rules governing carbon dioxide, “toxic” pollutants that have already been reduced dramatically, “cross-state transport” of emissions, and other power plant operations. All tout health claims based on virtual reality computer models, cherry-picked research and illusory benefits.
Some people have attacked the credibility of the Forbes article. I knew in advance they would. They miss thr real point. The real point is about the silliness of cap-and-trade as a solution.
Hundreds of United Nations global warming scientists just met in France via Earth-destroying air travel, ironically at a time of unseasonably cool temperatures across France, to once again justify their funding.
Why aren’t employers hiring more workers? Why are so many people seeking work unable to find anything other than part-time positions or temporary employment? And that’s when they can find a job at all.
When Tim Geithner whipped out his pocket Constitution in May to address the debt ceiling issue, the rivers in Hades must have been packed with ice skaters.
