“I fear the irrational policies of extreme environmentalists far more than a warmer climate on this relatively cold planet (14.5 C global average temperature today compared with 25C during the Greenhouse Ages.” Continue reading
“Sorry, I won’t proofread the text below because I found the program extraordinarily stupid and decided that I have already wasted way too much time with it. Apologies for all the mistakes in the text below that remain uncorrected.” Continue reading
“It’s time for conservatives to compete with liberals to devise the best, most cost-effective climate solutions.“
Wa-ay ahead of you Fred. The best – in fact only viable response whether enhanced greenhouse is a problem or not – is flat out, no regrets development. And the sooner the obstructionists (including you, Fred) get the heck out of the way the sooner we get all this mess cleaned up and progress back on track. Continue reading
“Activists demand suspension of clearances for new mines, days after blackout highlighted vulnerability of power supplies“
Hmm… somehow I suspect Indians would rather have the fuel and electricity than predators with a propensity to eat people. Continue reading
There is a “growing radicalized environmentalist faction” in Canada that is opposed to the country’s energy sector policies, warns a newly declassified intelligence report. Continue reading
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.

SIGNATURE wild river preservation laws blamed for putting vast tracts of Queensland in economic mothballs are to be scrapped in favour of a regime that encourages mining and development.
Campbell Newman’s Liberal National Party government will begin the process of repealing the laws on Cape York Peninsula, the scene of a bitter dispute between environmentalists who backed the measures and indigenous interests that claimed they strangled the economic life of local communities. Continue reading
Demonstrating once again that “greenery” is reliant on affordability (making it a luxury good?). Whatever, only societies generating a societal surplus can afford environmentalism. I bet it really burns anti-capitalist greenies that they and their “issues” are completely dependent on wealth generation. Just look what a great job the US EPA is doing of destroying US environmentalism by assaulting the cheap abundant energy on which America’s wealth generation depends.
“The amount of “green” advertising rises and falls in conjunction with key indicators of economic growth. That’s what three Penn State researchers found when they examined 30 years of environmental advertising in National Geographic Magazine, America’s leading nature publication, and compared it to what was happening with the gross domestic product at various points in time.” Continue reading
In 2010 the Center for Responsive Politics reported that in the past 20 years corporate oil interests had spent a combined $250 million dollars on political activism. Environmentalists were, as was intended, outraged that the philistine big oil interest was buying and bullying its way into a political advantage. Continue reading
Couple of pieces from Miranda Devine on the havoc being wrought by misanthropists flying the “green” flag Continue reading
The key message of today’s environmentalists is: Accept our worldview, submit to our solutions – or else. This is, let us be blunt, a death threat. It is the voice of an extortionist. Continue reading
Oh, this is rich. After using the damned owl to decimate logging and virtually kill the industry it turns out “logging, thinning, or other fuel reduction activities in areas with high fire risk would be more than offset by improved forest health and fire-resistance characteristics, the scientists said, which allow more spotted owl habitat to survive in later decades“. Continue reading
As we’ve all noticed there’s a drought going on in the American heartland. As many have noted this is leading to soaring prices of three main crops, corn wheat and soya. Continue reading
No, Juniper doesn’t just want to change your values, he wants total control over your life. Continue reading
Jeff Sonderman: Journalists beware: Shell Arctic hoax signals move from subtle spin to activist deception
I give up – when haven’t enviros used blatant deception and falsehood to advance their misanthropic cause? Water’s wet, sky’s blue, professional enviros are bloody liars. Continue reading
Pffthrrrrbt! Jones takes a great example of cooperative community effort for genuine environmental improvement and maliciously couples it to an environmental assault.
The one universally beneficial byproduct of human activity has been the restoration to the biosphere of previously lost carbon, albeit an incidental and accidental benefit. Jones owes landcare groups everywhere an abject apology for so impugning their efforts.
For him to so debase their genuine love of the environment by associating it with such a stupid and superstitious activity as limiting emission of an environmental resource at so enormous an expense that it will reduce society’s capacity for real environmental improvement is appalling.
Landcare is an honest effort at improving the environment and providing benefit for people too. Carbon constraint is rank misanthropy hiding behind the excuse of fantasies generated by PlayStation® climatology. It’s only “use” is to inhibit humanity. How dare he associate the two! Continue reading
Oh no! It actually contains science rather than green dogma! What can we do? Who can we telephone?
Actually we might applaude the practicality and hope that green stupidity finally dies its long overdue death. There’s no place in education for misanthropy. Continue reading
Australia is providing a case study in the self-destructive politics of green ideology, when believers of the religion of global warming gain political leverage. Continue reading
It was a tough week for Cameroonian village chief Wangoe Philip Ekole. People in Fabe, angry at his support for a palm-oil plantation in their rainforest home, had put a curse on its seedling nursery, prompting petrified workers to lay down their tools and flee. Continue reading
