IRONY is watching Seattle enviros protest oil…

They came in auto­mo­biles fueled by oil, wear­ing cloth­ing made from oil, to protest oil, in kayaks made from oil. Then they tweet­ed their pho­tos on phones made from oil and drove home. Share the irony.

Who Owns the Environmentalist Movement?

From: 21st Cen­tu­ry, Fall 1992 Who pulls the strings of envi­ron­men­tal groups? The estab­lish­ment fig­ures who fund and con­trol it — from England’s Prince Phillip and the Nether­lands’ Prince Bern­hard, to U.S. cor­po­rate fun­ders like Robert O. Ander­son. Far from a grass roots move­ment, envi­ron­men­tal­ism is a big busi­ness, fund­ed and direct­ed by the lead­ing […]

Renewable energy ‘simply WON’T WORK’: Top Google engineers

Wind­mills, solar, tidal — all a ‘false hope’, say Stan­ford PhDs Two high­ly qual­i­fied Google engi­neers who have spent years study­ing and try­ing to improve renew­able ener­gy tech­nol­o­gy have stat­ed quite blunt­ly that renew­ables will nev­er per­mit the human race to cut CO2 emis­sions to the lev­els demand­ed by cli­mate activists. What­ev­er the future holds, […]

EPA regs to increase Vermonters’ gas and electric bills by $880

By 2020, the aver­age annu­al house­hold gas and elec­tric bill in Ver­mont will increase by more than $880, thanks to the Oba­ma administration’s pro­pos­al to reg­u­late car­bon diox­ide emis­sions from U.S. pow­er plants. A study released Thurs­day by Ener­gy Ven­tures Analy­sis, a Vir­ginia-based con­sult­ing firm, finds that EPA reg­u­la­tions will spike pow­er and gas costs […]

EPA Funds Environmental Projects Along US-Mexico Border

Efforts of the U.S., Cana­da and Mex­i­co to “inte­grate” into the North Amer­i­can Union con­tin­ue. “Bor­der 2020” is a pro­gram of the U.S. Envi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion Agency (EPA), tied to the North Amer­i­can Free Trade Agree­ment (NAFTA). The North Amer­i­can Devel­op­ment Bank (NADB) finances envi­ron­men­tal infra­struc­ture projects iden­ti­fied by the Bor­der Envi­ron­ment Coop­er­a­tion Com­mis­sion (BECC). Both […]

Expensive Green Energy A ‘Bad Gamble’ As Gas Price Drops — Britain’s Green Energy Fiasco Deepens

Fam­i­lies face pay­ing up to £40 extra each year for wind and solar farms to meet cli­mate change tar­gets after the gov­ern­ment revised its ener­gy price fore­casts. The sub­sidy required for each unit of renew­able elec­tric­i­ty will rise after the Depart­ment of Ener­gy and Cli­mate Change (DECC) con­ced­ed that gas was much cheap­er than it […]

Sochi 2014 — A ‘Rich Green Legacy’ to Remember … or Forget?

Since the late 1990s, the Inter­na­tion­al Olympic Com­mit­tee (IOC) has been com­mit­ted to sus­tain­able devel­op­ment. Since the Agen­da for the Olympic Move­ment in the 21st Cen­tu­ry (Agen­da 21) was adopt­ed in 1999, the envi­ron­ment has become the third pil­lar of the Olympic move­ment, along with sport and cul­ture. The IOC works close­ly with the Unit­ed […]

Restructure US Government to Make “Huge” Green Changes in America, Study Proposes

Excerpt:  One of the major imped­i­ments, the study says, is cre­at­ed by America’s “basic frame­work of gov­ern­ment, estab­lished by law,” which is “one of sep­a­rat­ed and dis­persed author­i­ty,” in which “gov­ern­ment agen­cies at all lev­els — fed­er­al, state, local, trib­al and even inter­na­tion­al — can only do what they have been autho­rized to do by […]
