Economists like to say that there are no solutions, only tradeoffs. This must be a dilemma for the environmentalists: do “green” energy sources justify large-scale killing of wildlife? This is a report about just one plant; thousands of eagles, bats, and other birds are killed by wind turbines every year. The government gives those facilities a pass for killing protected species.

Funny, data continue to flummox the eco-bullshitters who constantly wail “climate change”. Al Gore is busy crafting spin right now that explains how this phenomenon is related to “warming.” Facts are stubborn and uncooperative things when you’re trying to advance an agenda. No matter – they’ll just lie about it, or fudge the data.

From a guy with a history of spectacularly failed predictions comes another sensationalist bomb: we’re headed with “ridiculous speed” toward mass cannibalism. By the way, if you want to read some good sense from a guy that Erlich wouldn’t bet against on one of his bad predictions, read The Ultimate Resource 2 by Julian Simon. Given free reign, human ingenuity can solve all our problems.
The “97% Consensus” on Global Warming is Total BS – Why Do Obama and other Alarmists Continue to Tout It?

John Cook of the University of Queensland in Australia came up with the oft-quoted number, based on an examination he conducted of scientific papers. Members of the media and others, who consider his methodology questionable, want to see his research and the papers he used to cook up his claim, but the university is suing to block access.

The Obama administration had some solar panels installed (again – Jimmy Carter did it back in the ’70s) on the White House roof, presumably to demonstrate his commitment to
wasting money pushing a green agenda green energy initiatives. Various media outlets and administration officials swooned over this huge leap forward:

That would be the Church of Climatology, and its high priests ARE the government. Despite having a really crappy record of prognostication, the climate doomsayers still insist we’re doomed (my bold emphasis in the quoted section) if we don’t pay Mother Gaia tribute by destroying our economy and returning to the 18th century.

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)

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.
