White House Methane Madness

Con­trary to per­sis­tent claims by envi­ron­men­tal­ists, Methane is not an impor­tant green­house gas (GHG); it has a total­ly neg­li­gi­ble impact on cli­mate.  Attempts to con­trol methane emis­sions make lit­tle sense; the just-announced [Jan 14] White House plan to reduce emis­sions by 40 to 45% by 2025 ignores well-estab­lished ‘text-book’ sci­ence. Methane (chem­i­cal for­mu­la CH4) is […]

Oceans not acidifying – “scientists” hid 80 years of pH data

Empir­i­cal data with­held by key sci­en­tists shows that since 1910 ocean pH lev­els have not decreased in our oceans as car­bon diox­ide lev­els increased. Over­all the trend is messy but more up than down, becom­ing less acidic. So much for those ter­ri­fy­ing oceans of acid that were com­ing our way. What hap­pened to those graphs?

EPA’s Wood-Burning Stove Ban Has Chilling Consequences For Many Rural People

It seems that even wood isn’t green or renew­able enough any­more. The EPA has recent­ly banned the pro­duc­tion and sale of 80 per­cent of America’s cur­rent wood-burn­ing stoves, the old­est heat­ing method known to mankind and main­stay of rur­al homes and many of our nation’s poor­est res­i­dents.

Actually, Raising Beef Is Good for the Planet

Despite envi­ron­men­tal­ists’ wor­ries, cat­tle don’t guz­zle water or cause hunger—and can help fight cli­mate change Peo­ple who advo­cate eat­ing less beef often argue that pro­duc­ing it hurts the envi­ron­ment. Cat­tle, we are told, have an out­size eco­log­i­cal foot­print: They guz­zle water, tram­ple plants and soils, and con­sume pre­cious grains that should be nour­ish­ing hun­gry humans. […]

Seven Reasons Why Plan Bay Area is Illegal & Bad Policy for California

Plan Bay Area is a mon­u­men­tal land use doc­u­ment pre­pared by the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Trans­porta­tion Com­mis­sion (MTC), and the Asso­ci­a­tion of Bay Area Gov­ern­ments (ABAG), for the osten­si­ble pur­pose of reduc­ing green­house gas emis­sions by 15 per­cent by the year 2035, as required by for­mer Gov­er­nor Schwarzenegger’s Sen­ate Bill 375.
