    A teen said he was cyberbullied for wearing an I Love Fossil Fuels shirt on Earth Day. John Digiacobbe said he loves fossil fuels because theyve been around for millions of years and provide for more than 80 percent of energy. Some of his classmates, however, dont seem to share that view. Digiacobbe said wearing the shirt prompted comments at school and a firestorm of negative tweets.

    "Over four decades ago, Americans from all walks of life came together to tackle a shared challenge," declared President Obama in his Earth Day address. "The first Earth Day was a call to action for every citizen, every family, and every public official. It gave voice to the conservation movement." In fact, well before the first Earth Day, millions of Americans "came together" in a conservation movement. Alas, to President Obama and most of his staff those millions of Americans mostly belonged to those insufferable rustics who cling to guns and bibles. To wit: The Pittman-Robertson Act (1937) imposed an...

    The environmental orgy known as Earth Day has come and gone. Disney opened their annual Earth Day movie homage, Pinterest made available a slew of Earth Day activities for kids, and public and private schools have had their requisite ceremonies. In all the celebration, the one thing that is seemingly never asked is whether or not environmentalist policies by the government are actually helping the environment? Wind energy is just one example. The United States government has provided billions of dollars of subsidies to the wind industry over the past twenty years, subsidies that have not yet been renewed in...

    This week marks the 44th anniversary of Earth Day. In years past, the day has been marked with great media fanfare and attention. This week, it marched by with little mention. This is not so much a reflection of any lack of interest in the Earth, but a reflection of how mainstream and ongoing the topics of recycling, reclaiming and sustainability have become. They are now part of our daily lives, rather than a topic to be raised once a year. For the first Earth Day, in 1970, the Keep America Beautiful organization ran a commercial that portrayed what...

    If you didn't realize it, yesterday was Earth Day. Founded back in 1970, this event was created to foster support for environmental protection. (Coincidentally, it's also the day communists celebrate the birthday of Vladimir Lenin.) Chances are you saw some news reports on the joys of recycling and other such fluff. Personally, I find such Earth Day nonsense quite tiresome as the environmental movement went from wanting to stop pollution to full-tilt insane in a few decades. One of the Earth Day consequences that we have is the EPA, which liberals and eco-nuts will gleefully remind us was signed into...

    After the masses departed and the smoke cleared, workers descended Monday on Golden Gate Park to bag up and truck away all that was left behind by those who celebrated the pot holiday of 4/20 - an annual event that again tested the patience of some residents and city leaders. While thousands enjoyed Sunday's informal smoke-out, police arrested 11 people around Sharon Meadow, and paramedics tended to four others. Traffic in the area was jammed all day. And officials estimated the cleanup cost would exceed last year's tab.

    As we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord this weekend, I thought Id pause for a moment and examine how we give honor (ahem) to Mother Earth. After all, in the eyes of some people, Earth Day (April 22) supersedes Easter (April 20) in importance, significance and even worship. I mean no disrespect, of course. But many readers are already familiar with our Christian faith. What they may be less familiar is how we (cough) honor Gaia. You see, green living has come to be associated with Gaia worship.

    "The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That's how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we've survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers. Great -- but now we're told that we're in big trouble because greenhouse gases cause global warming. I mean, climate change....

He included a link to a compostable, shovel-ready statement by Bp Stephen Blair. I am aghast.

    On April 22, in cities across America, some environmental activists will celebrate Earth Day, claiming only increased government control can protect the environment. Those celebrations will expose a couple ironies. First, many activists will arrive in a Toyota Prius, which has become the symbol of environmental consciousness. Ironically, however, the Prius is not a triumph of political planning but of the free market. In the 1990s, while California was requiring "zero-emission" vehicles, leaders at Toyota and Honda saw an opportunity to sell cars to people who want to spend less on gasoline, drive a car that emits less carbon dioxide,...

In other words, liberals are like grown up Boy Scouts who...
