Outside The Beltway: Sacridelicious In San Francisco

April 27, 2010 by

By Conn Carroll Addressing The Question of Global Warming, physicist and mathematician Freeman Dyson recently wrote in The New York Review of Books: There is a worldwide secular religion which we may call environmentalism, holding that we are stewards of the earth, that despoiling the planet with waste products of our luxurious living is a […]

Life Without (Electrical) Power (Part Three)

March 22, 2010 by

3

PART THREE OF THREE PARTS If you have not read Part One and Part Two, read them first by taking the links. In Part One, I mentioned the scare campaign of an impending Global Warming/Climate Change ‘catastrophe’, and how Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions, especially from coal fired power plants are the cause of this, and […]

Blowing Wind Up Your Skirt

March 7, 2010 by

1

By Alan Caruba One of the keystones of the Obama administration’s energy policies has been a very expensive emphasis on “clean energy”, sometimes called “renewable energy”, allocating billions to the wind and solar energy producers. Like much of the “stimulus” bill that money is a waste. The wind power trade group, the American Wind Energy […]

Hype Of Global Warming Far Scarier Than Science Shows

By Ben Lieberman The following Q&A with The Heritage Foundation’s Ben Lieberman is cross-posted from The Washington Post’s Planet Panel: Q: As the controversy swirling around the IPCC deepens at the same time some are questioning the significance of global warming now that large portions of the U.S. are buried under record-breaking snow, what kind […]

The Yucca Mountain Blues

February 19, 2010 by

By Alan Caruba Are you worried about your “carbon footprint”? Still think “global warming” is real despite the fact that one of its leading advocates, a climatologist, recently said that there’s no significant data to demonstrate any warming since 1995? Can’t figure out why the White House is still trying desperately to pass the “Cap-and-Trade” […]

Outside The Beltway: AZ Rejects Economy Killing Energy Taxes

By Conn Carroll Utah is not the only Western state that is rejecting the left’s global warming regulation policies. This week Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) signed an executive order stating that Arizona will not endorse any emission-control plan that could raise costs for consumers and businesses. The Arizona Republic reports: Arizona will no longer […]

America’s Global Warming Terrorists

February 10, 2010 by

By Alan Caruba It should tell you something about the federal government’s puerile efforts to advance the global warming (now called climate change) fraud that it had to cancel a scheduled press conference at the National Press Club on February 8th because a huge blizzard had shut down the entire city. Instead, the announcement of […]

Amazing How Old Certainties Can Melt Once Debate Is Allowed

February 7, 2010 by

0

By Andrew Bolt Peter van Onselen is wrong to claims sceptics didn’t like discussing climate change. In fact, what they demanded was more discussion, not censorship and media shut-ups, to achieve just what now so bemuses Peter: How quickly things can change in politics. At the end of last year the (Australian) government’s CPRS was […]

Crazy Nancy, Cunning Barry

February 4, 2010 by

By Alan Caruba When President Obama announced he would commit the nation to reduce “greenhouse gas emissions” in accordance with the failed UN Copenhagen Climate Change Conference goals, Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, issued yet another utterly crazed statement on January 29th. “President Obama’s announcement marks a critical step forward in our effort to […]

Mislead (Again) On Cap And Trade

February 4, 2010 by

1

Electrical Engineers everywhere must be tearing their hair out in frustration. The Carbon Cap and Trade legislation is specifically designed as a revenue raising device alone, and is not designed for the purposes of lowering Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. That’s a pretty bold thing to say, I can see, and requires some explanation, which is […]

Electricity – Paying Three Times For The Same Thing, And Some Unintended Consequences (PART 1)

February 3, 2010 by

0

PART ONE OF TWO PARTS Don’t you just love the way Politicians find new ways to gouge you. They don’t call it a tax, and won’t hear of anyone who does, in fact, roundly vilifying anyone who does dare call it a tax. Then they find a way to give it a name that makes […]

Electricity – Paying Three Times For The Same Thing, And Some Unintended Consequences (PART 2)

PART TWO OF TWO PARTS In PART 1, I detailed how you, as a residential consumer, use electricity, and how you will be slugged further for using it. If you have not read PART 1, it is directly above this on the Home page, or for those of you who are visiting externally, then take […]

The National Madhouse

February 3, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba If you think that you are going mad, based on the statements out of the White House and Congress, let me assure you that you are sane, but those in charge of governing the nation appear to have lost their wits. The Democrat’s third-ranking House leader, Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), during an […]

Global Warming Is The Hottest Hoax In The World

February 3, 2010 by

1

By Sammy Benoit So much has happened to the Holy Church of Global Warming Moonbats during the past few months, both before and after Climategate. Everything from a broken hockey stick diagram by Dr Mann to faked climate numbers presented by NASA’s Doctor Hansen. Things have gotten so bad that the “carbon credit market” set […]

Global Warming Makes The Case Against Global Government

February 2, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba The utterly baseless case for “global warming” is melting a lot faster than the glaciers in India’s Himalayas which, by the way, are not melting. It is time for the Nobel Committee to rescind the Peace Prize given to Al Gore and the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It […]

Obama’s Energy Budget: A Revenue Neutral Cap And Trade System?

February 2, 2010 by

0

By Nick Loris President Obama released his fiscal year 2011 budget this morning; his budget provides $28.4 billion for the Department of Energy (DOE) and $10 billion for Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Both sections in the budget reflect the president’s message in the State of the Union address delivered last week: a government attempt to […]

Obama: Repeating The Same Mistakes (And Lies)

January 29, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba It is the duty of being a “pundit” to have an opinion on the events of the day and, of course, everyone has an opinion about President Obama’s State of the Union speech. My most distinct impression while listening to it was that I had heard it all before. It was a […]

Obama’s Attempt To Revive Cap And Trade

January 29, 2010 by

0

By Nick Loris President Obama gave his first State of the Union speech last night and while his delivery reminded many Americans of the man they saw on the campaign trail, his rhetoric was much of the same. Although the president did call for offshore drilling and an expansion of nuclear, his focus was clean […]

DiCaprio Joins Hollywoodans In Ad Promoting Cap and Trade

By Noel Sheppard Leonardo DiCaprio and a list of Hollywood’s finest have just released a public service announcement encouraging people to petition Congress to pass the Clean Energy & American Power Act aka cap and trade. The ad was paid for by the left-leaning NRDC Action Fund, a group whose board of directors includes Ari […]

How To Watch The State Of The Union Speech

January 27, 2010 by

0

By Alan Caruba Here are some suggestions on how to watch the State of the Union speech. The Washington, D.C. lingo for it is “SOTU” because Washington loves acronyms and, of course, it is delivered by the POTUS, President of the United States. It is rumored that his Secret Service code name is “Moron.” The […]

The New York Times: Desperate, Blatant Lies

January 25, 2010 by

By Alan Caruba Once, very long ago, I used to be “a stringer” for The New York Times. My articles would appear in the New Jersey section and an occasional short book review would make it into the legendary newspaper. My Father read the The Times more faithfully than an ayatollah reads the Koran or […]

National Security And Global Warming: Never Mind

January 25, 2010 by

0

By James Carafano, PhD One of the loudest drumbeats in support of “Cap and Trade” legislation has been if the United States doesn’t tackle climate change with legislation we’ll face a national security catastrophe. Nations will collapse, waves of refugees will sweep the world, and states will war on other states over scarce resources. The […]

The Bill Comes Due For Socialism In America

By Alan Caruba “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” — Margaret Thatcher, former British Prime Minister It began as a beautiful cruise to a land of “hope and change”, but it has become a nightmare in which the ship of state is being deliberately steered toward a […]

Cap And Trade May Be Dead, But Bad Energy Policy Isn’t

January 21, 2010 by

By Nick Loris With the election of Scott Brown and Senator Byron Dorgan’s recent comment that “it is unlikely that the Senate will turn next to a very complicated and very controversial subject of cap-and-trade, climate legislation,” the prospects for CO2 legislation are looking quite grim. But before American energy consumers can break out the […]
