Obama fact sheet too generous to McCain re renewable energy

October 15th, 2008 · No Comments

The spin machines work long and hard and fast nowadays. Email boxes around the country are filled with “fact sheets” and other material from campaigns during presidential debates and in the hours afterwards. Among other things, the Obama campaign produced “John McCain’s 26 Lies Tonight“. Lie #16:
RENEWABLE ENERGY: McCain claimed to support renewable energies, but [...]

McCain: Failing his own “test”?

September 25th, 2008 · Comments Off

Both Barack Obama and campaign-suspended John McCain spoke at a session of the Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting.  Some have already called John McCain’s comments “the height of hypocrisy.”  Reading McCain’s speech and considering John McCain’s spinning out of control flip-flopping on energy and global warming issues over the past year, it is hard to disagree [...]

Bald-Faced Deception: McCain is McShameless …

September 11th, 2008 · 8 Comments

Will the nation reach a limit? Is there no limit to how far things will go? I will put aside, for the moment, McCain advertising lying to make Obama out to be some form of supporter of teaching unvarnished sexual education to kindergardeners (when, in fact, Obama was supporting efforts to teach young [...]

Sarah Palin’s Angry: Global Warming threatens “My Guy’s” hobby

September 8th, 2008 · Comments Off

Beneath her warm and endearing facade, one could suspect that Sarah “Pit Bull with Lipstick” Palin is outraged at the audacity of Global Warming as it threatens the favored sport of Todd “My Guy” Palin.    “My Guy” has won the the “grueling 2,000-mile Tesoro Iron Dog [Pit Bull with Lipstick?]  snowmobile race four times.”  The now [...]

Friedman burns McCain

September 8th, 2008 · No Comments

Tom Friedman is on a roll. He has, clearly, decided that the United States faces a pivot point. Either we will figure out smart energy policies and prosper, or we will fry.  As he looks to the election campaign, he has decided that the choice are clear. We might (MIGHT) prosper with Obama-Biden. However, WE [...]

McCain could have gone Female, Light Green: instead he chose a dark future

September 4th, 2008 · 6 Comments

John McCain has made the choice.

Calculating John’s Housing Carbon Footprint …

August 22nd, 2008 · 2 Comments

John McCain makes much noise about his concern for Global Warming, that he views it as real and something that requires action (even if his actions don’t match his words, also). A more prominent activist on Global Warming, Al Gore, has been hit hard for his supposedly excessive energy use at his home being at [...]

August 16th, 2008 · 3 Comments

John McCain spent part of this last Friday at the Aspen Institute speaking about energy issues, including a meeting with T. Boone Pickens. From an interview there
