Earth (Day) Science: Climate and the energy budget

April 23rd, 2009 · No Comments

This guest post from alefnot is a useful look at the climate change science.
The EPA recently announced that greenhouse gases pose a threat to health and welfare through their role in climate change. Climate change is a complex, nebulous thing that we seem to find difficult to attribute to anything tangible. So what [...]

Obama Administration: Moderate or Reality Based (thus “progressive” or ‘radical’) re climate change

December 20th, 2008 · Comments Off

Much is being made of Obama’s ‘moderate’ cabinet which is, somehow the middle-of-the-roaders’ dream.
President-elect Barack Obama spent the campaign fighting the notion that he’s an unabashed liberal.
Now he can point to Exhibit A: a Cabinet that’s a middle-of-the-roader’s dream
In fact, as that Politico article discusses, the mix is more complex, with some arenas ‘traditional’ / [...]

May 6th, 2008 · No Comments

Joining Mark Udall, some 28 members of the House of Representatives responded to Hillary Clinton’s challenge on a gas tax holiday … and rejected her Energy Dumb concept for a gas tax holiday.
While it is important that these 28 have spoken up, some of their words and the implications of their statement are concerning.

Gas Tax Scam (Dot COM)

May 5th, 2008 · 2 Comments

Clinton’s and McSame McCain’s energy dumb and dumber song-and-dance act about a ‘gas tax holiday’ is not getting any support from independent people who actually understand energy issues and/or economics.    As per GasTaxScam DOT com, the merit of this idea is about the merit of setting out on a long voyage with an empty tank.
A secret and [...]

Clinton’s FOE

May 3rd, 2008 · No Comments

Until quite recently, those who focused primarily on energy and global warming issues could see reasons to be supporting Hillary Clinton and/or Barack Obama. In this arena, both have plans and records with strengths … and weaknesses. Both could learn from each other and strengthen their own programs. Thus, with real legitimacy, an “environmentalist”, [...]

Energy Dumb, Dumber, Dumbest …

May 1st, 2008 · 7 Comments

My six-year old son is addicted to the Berenstein Bears. One of his first successfully read books: Ready, Get Set, Go which teaches adjectives and suggests that no one is best at everything. How many times read between us? 10? 25? Maybe 50? As any parent can tell you, a favored book like that becomes [...]

Greenwashing reckless legislation — unintentionally or otherwise

March 12th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Barbara Boxer has been a real leader on Global Warming issues in the US Senate. A leader who suffered for far too long under the ‘tutelage’ of Senator James Inhofe (R-Exxon).  Sadly, for whichever set of reasons, Senator Boxer has being working hard to corral votesin support of the fatally flawed Lieberman-Warner Coal Subsidy Act [...]

The Globe’s Future and November’s Choice

March 11th, 2008 · No Comments

Dr. Slammy over at Scholars And Rogues is one of those thoughtful bloggers that any/all can gain from reading and considering.  Yesterday, he sent An open letter to Progressive America.  This piece, very worth reading, lays out Dr. Slammy’s regret for his non-vote in 2000.
I’d like to begin with a confession: I didn’t vote in 2000. [...]

WashPost Blurs R-D Presidential Race’s Climate Change Differences

February 10th, 2008 · 1 Comment

For anyone who pays close attention, it is clear that John McCain is far behind both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton when it comes to Global Warming.  McCain’s campaign might be a “Green Straight Talk Express” but, when given the opportunity to act, Senator McCain’s reality is more like a Dirty Energy Twisted Delay Action [...]
