The “them” I am talking about is congress, and the “it” is the ludicrous ethanol mandate that was foisted on us by the evil progressive green movement to make tax payers enrich a bunch of them in return for a royal shafting. AP reports that the ethanol and green lobby are storming D.C. to buy off enough politicians to keep ripping of tax payers and anyone that buys gas so some liberals can make big … Read more

Because as usual with the green communists in charge and their insane energy policies, gas prices are going up. I found some old receipts and was doing the math, and 37 days ago I filled up at $3.48 a gallon. Yesterday I paid $3.93 for each gallon. That’s a 45 cent jump in just 37 days, and there is no economic boon anywhere to justify increased demand for oil. So, WTF is going on? … Read more
Obama and his donkey cohorts are certainly not happy that anyone is pointing out how radical environmentalist assholes at the EPA are actively taking measures to keep Obama’s promise to destroy the coal industry, but the plan exists. And they are in a hurry to foist this massive pile of dung that will cost our economy some $700 billion out of fear of a Romney presidency.
President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency has devoted an
Ah, yes, everyone’s favorite subject. Ugh. If you prefer not to get into AGW discussions, you can just skip this post. I’ve tried to ignore it, but the news has gotten too backlogged to kick this post down the road any further, especially given today’s developments in the idiocy that is carbon credits.
Scientific American, a publication I subscribed to when younger and ravenously read in my pursuit of knowledge and information in my younger years, when completely drawn and consumed by the world of science, was one of the main reasons I went to school and studied engineering. Of course, as they began shilling for AGW over a decade ago, publishing one dumb article after another that pushed a political agenda and leftist one government end goal, … Read more
The other day Hal had a real good post up about how, yet again, liberal social science types – talk about an oxymoron – had found that conservatives hated science, proving how dumb they are. Of course the devil was in the unreported/hidden details. What conservatives objected to wasn’t science, but how politicized so many people claiming to be doing science, but really doing nothing of the sort, were, but considering the source and … Read more
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s he eeevil Bjorn Lomborg again, popping the balloons of those who think wind will be our energy future:
A new report by University of Edinburgh professor Gordon Hughes for the Global Warming Policy Foundation estimates that 36 GW of new wind power [in the UK] would cost $190 billion for just 23 megatons of CO2 reduction per year. In other words, temperature rises would be postponed by a mere 66
Now that energy secretary Chu admitted during testimony to congress that this administrations actually understands what they are doing is going to jack up energy prices and will do nothing to mediate that, can we stop pretending that these people want high gas prices?
COMMENTARY | President Barack Obama’s Secretary of Energy Stephen Chu uttered the kind of Washington gaffe that consists of telling the truth when inconvenient. According to Politico, Chu admitted to
The Left Wing is atwitter over documents leaked from the Heartland Institute, a think tank that is at the forefront of climate skepticism. There’s a bunch of stuff there but … I’m kind of unimpressed. Most of it is about raising money from the likes of the Eeevil Koch Brothers. These are the evil pair who funded the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature program which … um, confirmed the purported temperature trends using the most robust … Read more
Check green this nonsense out:
Oil companies will pay $6.8 million in fines for not meeting federal quotas for blending in cellulosic biofuels – those produced from grasses, wood and plants – even though there weren’t enough of those biofuels available for use, the New York Times reported. Those fines are likely to rise in 2012 because the cellulosic biofuel quotas that refiners have to meet will rise more than 30 percent to 8.65 million
