  • Ex-CIA chief: Fear for environment stays US hand on ISIS oil wells

    The Hill ^ | November 25, 2015 | Bradford Richardson
    A former CIA director says concerns about environmental impact have prevented the White House from bombing oil wells that finance the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). “We didn’t go after oil wells, actually hitting oil wells that ISIS controls, because we didn’t want to do environmental damage, and we didn’t want to destroy that infrastructure,” Michael Morell said Tuesday on PBS’s “Charlie Rose.” Morell cautioned that he does not “sit in the room anymore” where strategic decisions are made, but said prior to the Paris terrorist attack earlier this month, “There seemed to have been a judgment that,...

    Thanksgiving is nearly upon us, and many of us will spend time with our families eating too much food and strategically waiting for couch spots to open up so we can sneak in a quick catnap when our unsuspecting relatives abandon their posts for another slice of pie. It's a time when we are thankful for the friends, family, and food. We should also be thankful for fracking. Although many people may not know it, fracking has lowered the cost of energy and other goods and services, makes America more energy-independent, and it is done in an environmentally responsible way....
  • The New ‘Consensus’: 97 Percent Of Americans Aren’t Worried About Global Warming

    While 97 percent of scientists may agree mankind is driving global warming, 97 percent of Americans don't seem to care about the issue when stacked up against other concerns such as terrorism or the economy, according to a recent Fox News poll. A November Fox News poll of more than 1,000 registered voters found that only 3 percent listed "climate change" as the most important issue facing the country today, down from 5 percent in August. Americans were much more worried about terrorism, the economy and immigration than global warming.

    As Americans prepare for their Thanksgiving Day feasts, there's an issue on the horizon that could make that turkey more expensive: taxing meat to reduce climate change. Livestock is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, adding about the same amount of emissions as that of all the world's vehicles, according to a new report from the U.K. policy institute Chatham House. But many consumers aren't aware of the link between their dinner plates and climate change, the report notes. At the same time, meat consumption is forecast to increase by 76 percent over the next several decades, thanks to...

    Due to warming water trends, experts say the province of Prince Edward Island could become a veritable hatchery for lobster within a half-century. While they caution there is a lot they don't know about the spiny delicacies, it does seem almost certain that the trend toward abundance in the Atlantic Canadian lobster fishery is not about to slow down. "With the temperature increasing in P.E.I. waters and decreasing the number of days a baby lobster is susceptible, you have less predation and an increase in settlement size lobsters," says Memorial University grad student Ryan Stanley, who is the grandson of...

    One of the most rightly celebrated books of the early environmental movement was New Yorker writer John McPhee's 1971 page-turner, Encounters with the Archdruid. The quasi-religious figure referenced in the title was naturalist legend David Brower, the first executive director of the Sierra Club and founder of a half-dozen other environmentalist organizations, including Friends of the Earth and the League of Conservation Voters. McPhee's concept was elegantly simple: Send Brower out into environmental no-man's lands with his antagonists—a mining magnate in the Glacier Peak Wilderness area, a golf-loving real estate developer on Georgia's Cumberland Island, and United States Bureau of...

    Fervent environmentalists and fervent free-market advocates can be mortal enemies, at least in a political and ideological sense. To the environmentalists, free markets are not adequately regulated, and are responsible for climate change, the extinction of species, deforestation and a lot of other bad things. To free-market supporters, environmental initiatives kill jobs, innovation and individual liberty. Is there a middle way? Here are some ideas that might be a bridge between those concerned about the environment and those who believe that free markets are necessary and a net benefit to society. We need both a clean environment and a free...

    The speed and scale of Chinas island-building spree have alarmed other countries with interests in the region. China announced in June that the creation of islands moving sediment from the seafloor to a reef would soon be completed. Since then, China has focused its efforts on construction. So far the country has built port facilities, military buildings and an airstrip on the islands, and recent imagery shows evidence of two more airstrips under construction. The installations bolster Chinas foothold in the Spratly Islands, a disputed scattering of reefs and islands in the South China Sea more than 500...

    For more than 100 years, coal-fired boilers at the Municipal Power Plant have helped power the city's electric needs. At 5:30 p.m. Sept. 22, the last day of summer, the Municipal Power Plant burned its last load of coal. The city-owned plant's two coal-fired boilers join a growing number of small, aging coal-fired units across the country that have gone cold in the face of tighter environmental regulations on emissions. A third boiler will continue to burn natural gas. To meet both regulations, Johanningmeier said, the plant would have had to refit the boilers with emissions-reducing equipment costing tens of...

The EPA is still studying the site and considering a wide range of actions to contain the radioactive material under its Superfund program for cleaning severe environmental contamination. But with an underground, smoldering fire in an adjacent landfill, residents...

    Judge Ralph Erickson of the District Court for the District of North Dakota granted plaintiffs an injunction against the Environmental Protection Agency's implementation of new navigable waterways regulations that were set for immediate enforcement. The EPA's new regulations would have extended its authority over every body of water within the United States including rain runoff, temporary puddles, and spillage from yard sprinklers and driveways where home owners wash their vehicles. The Judge observed that "it seems extremely improbable that the proposed EPA authority could conceivably apply to the so-called 'navigable waterways' described. As such, the 13 states suing the EPA...

    Dirty Harry got a little carried away at the recent National Clean Energy Summit in Las Vegas. You should try not to laugh too loudly as the loony libtard makes this passionate plea to protect wildlife, stop melting tundra and reduce the number of hurricanes while necessarily raising taxes and increasing regulations.

    As the world population grows, we have a pressing need to eat better and farm better, and those of us trying to figure out how to do those things have pointed at lots of different foods as problematic. Almonds, for their water use. Corn, for the monoculture. Beef, for its greenhouse gases. In each of those cases, theres some truth in the finger-pointing, but none of them is a clear-cut villain. Theres one food, though, that has almost nothing going for it. It occupies precious crop acreage, requires fossil fuels to be shipped, refrigerated, around the world, and adds nothing...

    Climate Crisis, Inc. $1.5 trillion and Larry Bell book explain how profiteers of climate doom keep the money flowing Paul Driessen No warming in 18 years, no category 3-5 hurricane hitting the USA in ten years, seas rising at barely six inches a century: computer models and hysteria are consistently contradicted by Real World experiences. So how do White House, EPA, UN, EU, Big Green, Big Wind, liberal media, and even Google, GE and Defense Department officials justify their fixation on climate change as the greatest crisis facing humanity? How do they excuse saying government must control our energy system,...

    An environmental advocacy group is promoting what has all the markings of a rigged survey and presenting it as a poll that shows 68 percent of Michigan business leaders (owners, presidents, managers and so on) support President Barack Obamas Clean Power Plan. According to the storyline, the 68-percent figure was the finding of a survey of 403 Michigan business leaders conducted by California-based Fairbank, Maslin, Maullin, Metz & Associates on behalf of Environmental Entrepreneurs, a national group that bills itself as The Independent Business Voice for the Environment. But the poll's methodology was not released and the group did not...

    The Forest Service report cites climate change for the increased wildfires. Other government reports have concluded the same. "Climate change has led to fire seasons that are now on average 78 days longer than in 1970," according to the Forest Service report. "The U.S. burns twice as many acres as three decades ago and Forest Service scientists believe the acreage burned may double again by midcentury." The U.S. Global Change Research Program predicted that wildfires will increase, especially in the Southwest. "These changes are often driven by multiple factors, including changes in temperature and drought patterns, wildfire, invasive species and...
