Andrew Bolt: Waking too slowly from our green daze

How is business meant to plan investments, when the Gillard Government changes its mind so abruptly on taxes and mad multi-billion schemes? Dennis Shanahan:

The decision to end the negotiations to buy and close down Australia’s “dirtiest” brown-coal power plants is not just a shift in policy that might ultimately save the budget billions; it is another shift in the goalposts that sends the wrong signals to industry and investors.

Critics Say California Law Hurts Effort to Add Jobs

Environmentalists in this greenest of places call the California Environmental Quality Act the state’s most powerful environmental protection, a model for the nation credited with preserving lush wetlands and keeping condominiums off the slopes of the Sierra Nevada.

Daniel Greenfield: Starving Amidst Plenty

There are two types of societies, production societies and rationing societies. The production society is concerned with taking more territory, exploiting that territory to the best of its ability and then discovering new techniques for producing even more. The rationing society is concerned with consolidating control over all existing resources and rationing them out to the people. Continue reading

39% of Americans feel ‘green guilt’ for wasting food, a much higher number than letting the sink run while they brush their teeth or not buying those stupid low-flow toilets.
