While you celebrate Earth Day being green, or whatever it is that people to on Earth Day, read a little about the interesting history of the great day. I especially like the part of how, despite no proof of any ill effects on humans or animals, DDT was banned. Millions of third-worlders have died as a result. But, have no fear, you can still assuage your guilt by raising money for mosquito nets.(Graphic by SooperMexican, click to view full size)
Eco-Bullsh*t Alert: Your Odds of Getting Robbed or Raped Will Go Up Because of – You Guessed It: Global Warming

Hide yo’ wife! Hide yo’ kids! Is there anything that the fear-mongering global warming alarmists won’t say to further their cause? Um, no. From the stretching-credulity-to-the-point-of-absurdity department at Mother Jones comes a report on the latest doomsday prognostication:

Why would they do this, if the exchange is such a smashing success? I love how they released the number anyway: 14. Fourteen people have signed up for Obamacare in North Dakota since October 1. That’s less than one per day. Maybe that’s why they don’t want the number out there.

Someone call Algore and tell him the jig is up. This article mentions the fact that the arctic ice sheet has grown by 60% in ONE YEAR (something I posted about earlier), which kinda throws a wrench in the whole “the poles are melting, and the polar bears are drowning” crap that the eco-kooks have been spewing for several years.

Six years ago, the BBC was reporting that “scientists” expected the Northwest Passage to be ice-free by this year. Oops.
A chilly Arctic summer has left nearly a million more square miles of ocean covered with ice than at the same time last year – an increase of 60 per cent.The rebound from 2012’s record low comes six years after the BBC reported that global warming would leave the Arctic ice-free in summer by 2013.

He says “there’s pretty good evidence that millions have already died because of climate change” but offers zero evidence – because there isn’t any. Go look at the YouTube video where he presents his “evidence”, standing in front of a bogus graph and behind some lab instruments like he’s some kind of scientist – he says he’s an “energy scientist” but his Wikipedia bio says his degree and dissertation are in physics. These nuts who want a carbon tax don’t seem to realize that it will destroy what’s left of our economy.

So, chumps, we got ours, but you don’t get yours. Besides uttering this totally unsupportable BS about global warming, he’s going to give away some more U.S. taxpayer dollars to build some more useless windmills and solar panels. But hey – he’s got a stellar record for that stuff, right? Besides, what difference does it make – it’s somebody else’s money he’s giving away.

Daniel Hannan examines why the Eurocrats and Greenies don’t want fracking going on in England (or anywhere for that matter). They don’t just dislike the idea of using fossil fuels; they don’t want progress. I particularly like his elicitation of the things that fossil fuels have brought us – that Greens apparently don’t want to have (my bold emphasis).
