I filled up my car today and paid $2.11 a gallon here in The People’s Republic of Connecticut. In some other parts of the nation that don’t have ridiculously high government imposed gas taxes – taxes that they claim they will use to fix the crumbling infrastructure and ill maintained infrastructure they have held tenure over, but somehow always end up in the general fund where they then get spent on vote buying social pet … Read more

Reason writer Ronald Bailey hung out with some of the recent climate protesters at the People’s Climate March. I’ve written about their convenient embrace of science when it suits their biases before, but Bailey really gets into the awful thinking that underpins much of the modern environmental movement:

Among the chief capitalist villains: Monsanto. The assembled marchers fervently damned the crop biotechnology company despite the fact that modern high yield biotech crops cut CO2 emissions
The liberal blogosphere is all aflutter because the US and China have agreed to cut greenhouse gas emissions:

China and the United States made common cause on Wednesday against the threat of climate change, staking out an ambitious joint plan to curb carbon emissions as a way to spur nations around the world to make their own cuts in greenhouse gases.
The landmark agreement, jointly announced here by President Obama and President Xi Jinping,
Because that seems to always be the battle cry of these morons on the left who can’t see the reason stuff like this happens is their policies and the implementation of said policies. Case in point revelations like One in five U.S. workers was laid off in the past five years and about 22% of those who lost their jobs still haven’t found another one, which shows you what happens whenever government assumes the … Read more
For reasons that I hope I’ll explain one day, this week is going to be a bit crazy. So here are a few stories I’ve been sitting on, awaiting longer commentary:
A few weeks ago, Marvel comics unveiled an alternative Spiderwoman cover which was immediately decried as sexist because of her pose. I suspected that this criticism was largely coming from people who weren’t terribly familiar with the medium. And indeed, Maddox easily found a … Read more
Naomi Klein has a new book out. Having failed to rally the forces of socialism with No Logo and The Shock Doctrine, she’s now saying that capitalism needs to go because it’s destroying the environment.
Yes, she is writing these words in 2014 as if this were a brand new thought. But the greens have been pushing this anti-capitalism line for fifty years. The anti-capitalist sentiment got so putrid that Patrick Moore … Read more
Anyone wanting to buy a powerful vacuum cleaner has only 10 days left to be certain of getting one – following new EU rules that come in next month.
From 1 September, companies in the EU will be banned from making or importing vacuum cleaners above 1600 watts.
The new European rules are part of the EU’s energy efficiency directive, designed to help tackle climate change.
The EU is claiming that this … Read more
While I will admit that anyone making the case that there is plenty of competition for all the lying done by this WH, the argument can be made that the ludicrous claim they are transparent in their dealings and want an independent press can be seen as taking the cake. With so many key Obama people, all under investigation, destroying subpoenaed evidence, or the history of Obamacare and the lies and vote buying that … Read more
But we are going to keep pretending we are not talking out of our collective government funding wanting asses. This stuff is just priceless.
From the comments:
Like Astrology, Marxism and Freudianism, Global Warming theory can “explain” anything, but predict NOTHING.
The cultists love to tell us about how the melting of the polar caps, but especially the Antarctic Glacier, validates their cult’s premise that man’s doing this, and not nature. I watched an episode of the heavily politically motivated Cosmos TV show just a week or two ago where they pushed their global warming agenda hard, playing fast and loose with the facts, and never mentioning as alternative energy to fossil fuels the only technology … Read more
