Environmental propaganda

Clearly in the dark on how wind and solar work

Saw this today on the Greenie Watch blog: http://poorrichardsnews.com/post/99998945868/comedy-gold-coal-plant-protest-deflated-by-miserable This is the only footage showing the failure of the inflatable coal plant.  Is anyone surprised? On other reports, the increase in rates was reported.  One had the monthly fee going from $10.50 to $15.  I’ll trade with them any day.  My monthly fee is $20 […]

Finally!

Update:  December 6, 2013 Yesterday’s Casper Star Tribune had this: http://trib.com/business/energy/in-growing-trend-wyoming-wind-project-seeks-permit-to-kill/article_74a750fc-ed4f-53c5-86a9-37f358b4bbb6.html And another source: http://wyomingpublicmedia.org/post/eagle-take-permitting-gets-underway-wyoming-wind-farm The answer to the number of dead eagles (not including dead bats and other “non-protected” birds) is 36 to 64 estimate for the first 500 turbines.  Of course, it’s very unlikely the number will actually be that low.  That’s the […]

Bird versus Wind Turbines

The realization that wind turbines are killing large numbers of raptors is being noticed in some interesting places: http://news.yahoo.com/study-wind-farms-killed-67-eagles-5-years-160226373.html For years, anti-wind groups have protested that turbines are killing raptors.  This was usually met with “cats kill birds” and other such trite statements.  As I have said before, cats do not take down golden eagles.

Moms Clean Air Force–clueless and dangerous

Mom’s Clean Air Force, as reported on the AWEA site, is calling for an extension of the PTC for these reasons: Wind is free. Wind is clean. Wind is renewable. Wind is non-polluting. Wind doesn’t harm children’s health. Clueless and dangerous they be for these simple reasons: Wind is free. Yes, so is gravity. And both […]

The TV Propaganda Machine Rolls On

I was watching Rizzoli and Isles last night on television. The “genius scientific” medical examiner stated that fracking contaminates ground water. There went her “genius” status and her “scientist” label. Since her biological father is supposed to be a mobster, maybe it was genetics creeping in. In any case, her credibility just dropped to zero […]

Earth Day 2012 — the irrational and irresponsible grinds on for another year

Earth Day 2012 Once again we celebrate the short-sighted “we care about the planet” rhetoric that is environmentalism. Let me say I have no objection to clean air and water. just as most people have no such objection. However, there is clean and then there is clean. A home with reasonable keeping—counters wiped down with […]

Wandering Words

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

“We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert”. - J Robert Oppenheimer.
