An Inconvenient Tax: How Carbon Taxes Devastate Economies

When the Federal Government desires less of something, they tax it. This is an effective solution to curbing behavior that the government has deemed unhealthy or undesirable. When the government wanted to reduce smoking, it placed high fees upon cigarettes as a deterrent.

Electronic Waste: One Man’s Trash, Another Man’s Treasure

Pixar’s WALL-E presented a dystopian vision of humanity’s future as a result of our culture of disposable products. WALL-E (Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) was the robot responsible for cleaning up an abandon earth trashed by consumerism and corporatism. This is an extreme vision of how many view electronic waste, known as E-waste, overrunning the United States if the government doesn’t step in to tackle our waste problem.

After 10 Years: Time for FutureGen to Retire

Ten years ago, the United States made an investment in a new environmental idea of clean coal through a cutting edge project known as FutureGen.  FutureGen, a public-private partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the FutureGen Industrial Alliance, was intended to construct a net zero-emission fossil-fueled power plant. To reduce carbon emissions, FutureGen uses carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) technology to inject carbon into geological formations rather than allowing emissions into the atmosphere.

Coalition Urges Republicans to Oppose Carbon Tax

The Obama Administration has given every indication that it will reignite the debate over the economically damaging carbon tax. This comes as no surprise. What should come as a surprise, however, is the willingness of some Republicans to be supportive of such a draconian tax. The conservative base must stand and let their voices be heard: No Carbon Tax.

Conservatives Are Not Anti-Environment, We're Anti-Junk Science

In writing my recent continuing series on the proposed coal shipping terminals in the Pacific Northwest, my mind inevitably wandered to the age-old accusation that Conservatives are opposed to science and uninterested in protecting the environment. I find that personally amusing, given my Bachelor's degree in Zoology and a lifelong commitment to conservation and the outdoors, that happen to jibe perfectly with my lifelong commitment to free markets and individual liberty. But the evidence is overwhelming - Conservatives are decidedly in favor of science, human progress and conservation.
