  • EDITORIAL: The hippie holiday--Humanity haters bemoan life on Earth Day

    Tomorrow is Good Friday, the day on which Jesus Christ was crucified. More important to many is that it’s also Earth Day, the annual gala that’s taken on the trappings of a pagan religious holiday. At some level, it’s good to celebrate Earth, the source of life and home of humanity. After all, we have to live somewhere. Environmentalists, however, seem divided between those who venerate the planet as a deity and those who think it’s so fragile that it must be saved from everyone but themselves. Newsweek magazine dismissed the first Earth Day in 1970 as “a bizarre...

    High court hears warming case that could freeze the U.S. economyGlobal-warming alarmists have failed to make their case in the court of public opinion, so they’re taking their propaganda to the Supreme Court instead. Like many ideological movements that lack political traction, the left is hoping that what politicians have disposed of the judiciary will impose. On Tuesday, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in American Electric Power Co., Inc. v. Connecticut, the issue at hand being whether states and private groups may sue utilities over purported global warming. Several states and environmental activists sued five electric utilities for...

    Vanity ^ | 28 March 2011 | Unknown
    That Green Thing In the line at the store today, the cashier told an older woman ahead of me that plastic bags weren't good for the environment. The woman apologized to her and explained, "We didn't have the green thing back in my day." That's right, they didn't have the green thing in her day. Back then, they returned their milk bottles, Coke bottles, and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, using the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But they didn't...

    Environmental pressure group Ceres, whose primary activity is to drive corporations to report their greenhouse gas emitting activities and disclose climate risk in their Securities and Exchange Commission filings, recently released a report that outlines exactly what companies should be disclosing. The report, “Disclosing Climate Risks and Opportunities in SEC Filings: A Guide for Corporate Executives, Attorneys and Directors,” was written by three environmentalist attorneys and was reviewed by representatives of Friends of the Earth, Climate Change Lawyers Network, Carbon Disclosure Project, Natural Resources Defense Council, Investor Environmental Health Network, California Public Employees’ Retirement System, California State Teachers’ Retirement...
  • Details on the Republican Attack on Our Environment [Tea Party Success!]

    Environmental protection in the US is under attack from extremist Tea Partiers backed by big business. A backlash by wealthy business owners and conservative activists against President Obama's green agenda has snowballed into the greatest assault on environmental protection that America has ever seen. "This is almost unprecedented in environmental history, in that they are moving in so many directions and in so many ways to effect the same results that even if they are only partly successful, it will still have a serious outcome,"said Bill Becker, secretary of the National Association of Clean Air Agencies, which monitors air pollution....

    The Washington Times ^ | February 1, 2011 | Editorial
    On the rare occasion when federal bureaucrats waver in their commitment to expanding their own regulatory power, environmental extremists can always be counted on to look for a sympathetic judge to expand it for them. The latest clever scheme would undermine the right of Americans to hunt and fish, using the judicial branch to implement policies too hot for regulators or lawmakers to touch. Congress needs to step in and disarm this assault on traditional sporting activities. The California-based Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) fired the first shot in August when it asked the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to ban...

    As part of Obama's new political initiative to bypass a Congress that rejected his leadership in 2009 and 2010, he has announced executive orders to allow the federal government to restrict economic activity to fit legislative goals he apparently no longer believes he can win in political debate.  One of the most important new targets in this new post-congressional agenda is Texas.  The EPA is messing with Texas in ways that threaten to disrupt the biggest jobs-producer in the United States. The EPA is moving to restrict Texas' ability to continue as the largest production base for natural gas...

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is proposing to list the dunes sagebrush lizard, or sand dune lizard, as an endangered species, a move that could restrict oil drilling, grazing and off-road vehicle use in the lizard's habitat in southeastern New Mexico. The Center for Biological Diversity said an endangered species designation would require limits on herbicide spraying used by some ranchers and restrictions on oil and gas drilling, plus additional funding for research and the development of a recovery plan. ... A 60-day public comment period begins with the publication today of the proposal in the Federal Register. Fish...

    Today, U.N. negotiators will begin two weeks of meetings in Cancun, Mexico, looking for a way to move the climate action agenda forward, impose global carbon emissions caps and compel countries to pay a series of new international taxes to underwrite environmental programs. Maybe they'll get what they want when hell freezes over.The mood of climate alarmists going into Cancun is decidedly downbeat. The sense of impending doom they had cultivated over the last decade or so has largely evaporated. The Climategate scandal took a severe toll on the credibility of some of the climate theology's leading high priests,...

    A proposal to ban lead fishing tackle to protect birds and other wildlife has been shot down by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The decision was immediately praised by fishing groups worried lead substitutes would cost more and be less effective in catching fish. Jim Hutchinson, of the Galloway Township-based Recreational Fishing Alliance, said EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson made the right decision. "We're certainly happy with the EPA. It will be helpful in this tough economy for tackle shops, charter boats, and individual anglers. An outright ban would have just kept fishermen off the water, and that's ridiculous," Hutchinson said....

    The Ignorant Fishermen ^ | October 19, 2010 | RMM I.F.
    In light of the recent environmental controversy over splattergate, where the green propaganda ad in the United Kingdom explosively became gory red in the classroom, it is time to be reminded that it was pacifist-leftist Kurt Tucholsky (1890-1935) who pointed out that the Nazis started out green but became bloody red. This political reality came much to the dismay of many German conservationists as they slowly found out the real intent of Adolf Hitler. Naïve German greens had no idea that many of the Fuhrer’s savage premeditations about continental hegemony were often conjured up at his mountain retreat in the...

    (CNSNews.com) - The Environmental Protection Agency recently listed 76 community groups and government agencies that will share almost 2 million taxpayer dollars in the form of "environmental justice grants."The grants – around $25,000 each -- will fund projects that help people living in poor, minority communities increase recycling, avoid heat stroke, improve indoor air quality, "reduce carbon emissions through weatherization," and participate in "green jobs" training programs.But beyond the EPA's mission of protecting human health and the environment, the grant money will boost the coffers, and perhaps the influence, of some far-left groups.The EPA defines “environmental justice” as the...

    One of the most embarrassing environmental facts of the 1930s was that between 60% and 70% of the German greens were Nazi Party members, compared to only 10% of the population at large. In fact, German greens outperformed even medical doctors and teachers, with Nazi foresters and veterinarians leading the charge. Somehow, the so-called independent German wandervogels (German word for "wandering free spirits") found themselves at the footstool of Der Führer. Their wandervogel attitudes about civilization and the wild forestlands found a political niche in the isolationist biology of the Nazi Party. Furthermore, their strong beliefs in holism found a...

    Washington Post ^ | September 24, 2010 | By David A. Fahrenthold
    Federal officials began a historic crackdown on pollution in the Chesapeake Bay on Friday - threatening to punish five mid-Atlantic states with rules that could raise sewer bills and put new conditions on construction. The move by the Environmental Protection Agency is part of the biggest shakeup in the 27-year history of the Chesapeake cleanup. On Friday, the agency went after Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware and New York, which together account for more than 70 percent of the pollution that causes "dead zones" in the bay. The agency told the states that their plans contained "serious deficiencies" and said...
