    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...

    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 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....

    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...

    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....

    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.

    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...

To avoid lawsuits, American tax dollars are being used to pay off radical environmental groups. The groups are using the money to threaten more lawsuits. Research provided to the Western Legacy Alliance has documented payments of at least $4,697,978 in taxpayer dollars to 14 environmental groups in 19 states and the District of Columbia. These payments are not being made because the radical groups won a legal battle or proved that the federal government was destroying the environment. Instead,...

    The Supreme Court's recent McDonald and Heller decisions have thus far thwarted the gun grabbers' best efforts by upholding the individual's right to own firearms.

On Aug. 3, the American Bird Conservancy and groups like Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency to ban traditional lead ammunition as a "health risk." Obviously, the argument was not that recipients of a 45-caliber slug might suffer from lead poisoning. Instead, these...

    James Enstrom, an epidemiologist who has worked at the UCLA School of Public Health for 34 years, was recently fired, supposedly because his research "is not aligned with the academic mission of the Department [of Environmental Health Sciences]." As Michael Siegel notes, this rationale is patently false. The department's official mission is to "explore the fundamental relationship between human health and the environment," and that is exactly what Enstrom has done. The problem is not that he tackled the wrong questions; it's that he came up with the "wrong" answers. Specifically, he has failed to find a connection between exposure...

The ad opens with a quote from Brown in which he says that ``reducing carbon dioxide emissions in Massachusetts has long been a priority of mine,'' then flashes to a...

    Energy: Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced Monday that his agency would look into drilling for oil in the Atlantic soon. It sounds good. But a glimpse at the strategy suggests Salazar's real aim is to block drilling. Ordinarily, even a little motion from federal bureaucrats to open America's offshore to domestic drilling is welcome news. But in a speech before Platts Energy Podium Monday, the interior secretary took back as much as he gave, announcing that the government would look into drilling in the Atlantic, but only after walking the whole process through a long regulatory gauntlet that will be...

    Journalist and filmmaker Phelim McAleer, the maker of Not Evil, Just Wrong, has been doing a standup job of showing the hypocrisy inherent in not only the man-made global warming schizo's but the left side of the aisle as a whole. Here he is questioning the hypocrisy of those "representatives" to the Copenhagen climate change conference who have belittled and shamed people about the effects of flying a plane. Funny how the dismiss McAleer as not worth their trouble. How dare he question them on their "green" credentials. Right? The U.N. estimates 40,500 tons of carbon dioxide will be pumped...

    A French group which advocates the use of cooking oil to run vehicles had its novel fuel confiscated by Danish police on the ground it could be used to make bombs during the Copenhagen climate talks. Members of the association "Roule ma Frite" (Roll on Fries) had travelled to the Danish capital on a bus powered by used vegetable oil -- but their return home now hangs in the balance. "Police came and confiscated the oil for our return journey on the ground that it could be used to make bombs," Gregory Gendre, the coordinator of the group, told AFP....
  • Everyone in Britain could be given a personal 'carbon allowance'

    Everyone in Britain should have an annual carbon ration and be penalised if they use too much fuel, the head of the Environment Agency will say. Lord Smith of Finsbury believes that implementing individual carbon allowances for every person will be the most effective way of meeting the targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions. It would involve people being issued with a unique number which they would hand over when purchasing products that contribute to their carbon footprint, such as fuel, airline tickets and electricity.

    In a case that could have a major impact on water use in Massachusetts, the attorney general’s office argued before the state’s highest court yesterday that the Department of Environmental Protection can impose limits on the amount of water municipalities draw from aquifers, rivers, and lakes.... The case, which the Supreme Judicial Court did not immediately rule on, stems from a state policy adopted in 2007 that allows the department to limit residential water use to 65 gallons a day per person for basins at risk of drought and 80 gallons a day per person for those with less risk....

    PARENTS have accused early childhood centres of "greenwashing" their children by burdening them with the responsibility of saving the world.Tots as young as three have sent letters to Kevin Rudd about their passion for green living and asked companies to reduce their packaging.Others are growing their own food, repairing toys and walking to preschool in an effort to reduce their toll on the environment.But experts have called for caution in teaching children about climate change because of the potential for fear, anxiety, frustration, anger and despair at catastrophic events.Mother Paula Driscoll, from Sydney, said environmental disaster was the new...

    The Obama administration has ordered the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to conduct studies on the possibility of removing four hydroelectric dams on the Snake River in Washington state in order to “protect” 13 species of salmon on the federal endangered species list. The studies were part of a new “Adaptive Management Implementation Plan” created by a coalition of nine government agencies (which calls itself “the Federal Caucus”) that which manages the salmon population in the Columbia River basin. The plan aims at trying to reverse a decline in the salmon population...

    Environmentalism: Sen. Dianne Feinstein votes to deny water to California's drought-stricken San Joaquin Valley. Farmers, families and food are being held hostage to an endangered fish called the delta smelt. (snip) The Senate rejected the amendment by a largely party-line 61-36 margin, with Feinstein opposing the restoration of water deliveries to farmers. The California senator claimed she was blindsided by the amendment to the bill she was managing in the Senate, bizarrely comparing the move to a "Pearl Harbor." "No one from California has called, written or indicated they wanted this on the calendar," Feinstein protested.
