Friends:

Our proposed national energy slogan is “All of the Sensible” (in contrast to the absurd “All of the Above”). Please pass it on. US citizens should make sure to get up-to-speed with what is on our PTCFacts.Info pages.

I wrote a nine page critique of Bill McKibben, who continues to be a parasite in environmental and energy matters. This is a very good analysis of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring on it’s 50th anniversary. Bill and many other environmentalists are following her lead (sensationalism without science). Make sure to support the upcoming debate.

Quote of the week, from Dr. Gordon Fulks: “Science” by consensus is politics.  “Science” by belief is religion.  “Science” by programmers code is computer gaming.  “Science” by story telling is science fiction.  Etc. On the other hand, Science by logic, transparent evidence and empirical proof IS science.

I just got the following recognition from Slideshare. Thank you!
