Mark W. Hendrickson: A Book Review of Brian Sussman’s “Eco-Tyranny”

In “Eco-Tyranny,” author Brian Sussman sounds a timely and important warning: The radical “greens” are not in retreat. With the defeat of cap-and-trade legislation in 2010 and the increasingly discredited alarmist theory of anthropogenic global warming, the greens may have lowered their public profile; however, with the full cooperation of the Obama administration, they are forging ahead with their illiberal agenda of gaining ever more control over the American economy and people.

Failing the Acid Test – Jane Lubchenco

In the whole panoply of distortion and disinformation surrounding the claims of global warming, few can be more dishonest than the claims of Ocean Acidification.  Head of NOAA, Jane Lubchenco, is currently on the Australian circuit to try and convince people that the new Carbon tax is valid and necessary to save the planet and of course, as it’s Australia, to save the Great Barrier Reef from extinction. Ocean acidification first saw the light of day in 2003 and found its way into AR4. It is now embedded in AR5, based on the shakiest of science.

Read on, to find out how the claim of a “30% increase in ocean acidity since the industrial revolution” came into being and check out the NOAA video, where Jane Lubchenco tries to fool the public with “The Vinegar Trick” and a piece of chalk.

Tim van Gelder: Sustainability demands public wisdom

Sigh… Actually Tim, Australia is still pretty much a blank sheet, waiting for us to terraform into an environment that suits us better. Once we have done so we can sustain anything we want. There is nothing magical about the way it was before we started improving it any more than there is some special quality about its previous desperately unproductive state.

We were a country of nation builders but constant white-anting by the green left has eroded us to a collection of effete worriers, too uncertain to manage a trip to the corner store. That’s not ‘public wisdom’ but societal sabotage. Continue reading
