Snow, Not Apocalypse

We’ve been here before. A storm bears down on the media centers of the east coast. Reporters don silly parkas, galosh into the tempest and offer apocalyptic sermons about climate change. “Repent! The End is Nigh!”Because who would expect the northeast to get snow in February — it’s unheard of!When I mock this predictable alarmism, Twitter lefties are quick to attack my blasphemy. “Y u hate sceince?! stoopid rethuglican!!1!” says an engaging fellow with an egg avatar and no followers. Yes, your piercing logic has swayed my scientific understanding, @m1tts4tard.

Sandy: Log-Rolling from Alaska to New Jersey

The House of Representatives passed the second installment of the Hurricane Sandy bailout Tuesday night, as Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) brought up a bill he knew would pass without support from his own party. That allowed conservatives to vote against a bill that conservative groups were adding to their legislative scorecards.The path of the bill has been marked by one consistent strawman argument: opposition has been cast as opposition to relief, rather than opposition to the corrupt spending accompanying it.

Mass Transit Is Not Green Transportation

Here in Portland, Oregon, we've been something of a test lab for mass transit. Our city council, long ago (starting under then Mayor Neil Goldschmidt), threw itself wide open to federal planning experts who wished to use Portland as the template for solutions to the energy crisis of the 70s. That crisis, of course, morphed into the global warming crisis, but the goals were the same - to convince ordinary Americans that their future, and the future of all mankind, came via a trip by bus or train, not in their own car.

Obama Trying to Avoid Coal In His Stocking This Christmas

Earlier this month, Obama mega-donor Bill Maher suggested that the President manipulate the current fiscal crisis as a means of implementing a carbon tax to combat global warming.  Maher was plotting a rather vengeful plan, claiming "it would be just desserts for the oil and coal industries that went all in for Mitt Romney."

Mr. President - Get Off the Sideline, Get on the Pipeline

The time for politics has passed, or so you would think.Throughout his campaign, President Obama promised to make a decision on the Keystone XL pipeline after the election was over.  Nearly six weeks later however, despite facts that reveal the project to be a bipartisan, pro-energy, pro-growth pursuit, the President has still failed to address the issue.

New EPA Mandated Ethanol Fuel Harms Vehicles

The EPA's latest biofuel initiative may cause substantial damage to vehicles, but why let the effects of bad policy get in the way of  implementing unnecessary, burdensome policy?

AWEA and the Wind PTC: Blowing Hot Air

The Wind Industry is a universal model for efficiency… not in energy production, but in marketing its product. Only the best and brightest marketing team, like our friends at the American Wind Energy Alliance (AWEA) could convince so many Americans and their lawmakers that the federal government should continue to subsidize and industry that is the model of inefficiency in the energy sector.

A Fiscal Cliff Litmus Test: The Wind Energy PTC

Over the next two months, members of Congress, the President, and his staff will be tasked with addressing and correcting the issues of debt, taxes, and spending, unmasked by nearly half a decade of weak economic growth. These issues are complicated no matter how easy either side portrays their solution to be. Years of ambivalence towards the cyclical issues surrounding the country’s finances and economy have led many to make inefficient decisions, and come to depend on the status quo.

Obama Is Not Improving Ohio's Economy - Fracking Is

At the Basic American Rights Seminar in Eugene, Oregon on September 29, the keynote speaker was Ann McElhinny, director of the documentaries Not Evil, Just Wrong and FrackNation.  Always an energetic speaker, one subject of her talk really stuck out.
