Lee, identified by law enforcement as the gunman, Lee...

    The cost of oil is high because our knowledge of how to combat it is low. The media has blossomed into the greatest enabler of this collective shortcoming.

    Primitive man worshipped nature and imbued inanimate things with human qualities. So do environmentalists. James Lovelock, one of the movement's godheads, and the godfather of the Gaia hypothesis, imbued the earth with mystical powers. The Lovelock-inspired concept of "planetary consciousness" is really a philosophical excrescence of animism, "the belief that natural objects, natural phenomena and the universe itself possess souls." Nature worship is a form of this fetishism. Primitives worshipped idols and amulets but also conferred divine honor on the sun, moon, mountains, rivers, trees and animals; air, fire and water. Environmental animists à la Lovelock believe that to...

    WASHINGTON - President Bush on Tuesday ordered a temporary suspension of environmental rules for gasoline, making it easier for refiners to meet demand and possibly dampen prices at the pump. He also halted for the summer the purchase of crude oil for the government's emergency reserve. The moves came as political pressure intensified on Bush to do something about gasoline prices that are expected to stay high throughout the summer. Bush said the nation's strategic petroleum reserve had enough fuel to guard against any major supply disruption over the next few months. "So, by deferring deposits until the fall, we'll...

    A MILLIONAIRE former property developer has emerged as a key figure in the animal rights movement with close connections to its extremist wing. James Gorman, 57, a vegan bodybuilder, has pledged to give more than £1m to the movement and helps a group that raises funds for members who have been jailed. Inquiries by The Sunday Times have established that he is in regular contact with Keith Mann, an Animal Liberation Front (ALF) member and notorious activist. Gorman also regularly meets Greg and Natasha Avery, campaigners for the Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (Shac) campaign, who were jailed in 2001 for...

    This week marks the thirty-eighth anniversary of the launch pad fire of Apollo 1, which took the lives of Astronauts Gus Grissom, Edward White and Roger Chaffee. In a grim irony, this same week also marks the nineteenth anniversary of the Challenger disaster, as well as the second anniversary of the loss of the space shuttle Columbia. Though memorials are certainly in order, a closer examination of the nature and cause of each catastrophe reveals much about the nation throughout the past four decades. Particularly in the wake of the Columbia tragedy and its ensuing investigations, disturbing trends in NASA...
  • Green activists' deceptive "science"

    Green activists have given "environmentalism" a bad name. Tsunami waters had barely receded before Tony Juniper, spokesman for Friends of the Earth, told the press that the tragedy was "... consistent with climate-change predictions." Hogwash! Climate-change predictions are all over the yard and all are based on computer models. None is supported by the actual scientific record. What is known is that carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has increased by about 100 parts per million during the last century, some of which is likely to be the result of using fossil fuel. The BBC is touting a 2001 study by...

    New York, Nov 16 (IANS) An India-born, US-based scientist has proved that large-scale installation of windmills to replace conventional sources of energy may cause drastic local weather changes. According to a newly published study by The Journal of Geophysical Research quoted by the New York Times, a wind farm with thousands of wind turbines also removed an enormous amount of energy from the air. The research was headed by Somnath Baidya Roy who works with Princeton University in New Jersey, along with R.L. Walko of Duke University in North Carolina and S.W. Pacala, also of Princeton University. It showed that...
