Some on the Left have Figured Out the Myth of Organic Farming

Regular readers of this site know that I publish a special interest stories regarding science, health and cool gadgets daily. Many are drawn from the website New Atlas.

While this site is exceptional for its cutting-edge health and technology news, it does lean to the left on many issues. One is most certainly global warming, climate change, or however we care to classify it today.

And as a regular reader, you also know that I am what many would consider a man-caused global warming denier. Notice I didn’t say climate change denier, for who in their right mind can deny that the climate has and is constantly changing over time.

That being said, one of the left’s causes for combating CO2 emissions and thus global warming is “sustainable” farming, a euphemism for organic farming. read more

Video Podcast – Another Global Warming Study Debunked

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Okay, so let’s talk global warming again. Wish there was some.

What I’ll be discussing today could be another cold, calculated attempt to try to convince us that global warming is happening and it’s all man’s fault, or we can just chalk it up to simply human error and definitely not intentional.

Gee, I wonder which side I come down on.

Global warming alarmists dressed up in white science lab coats are at it again. And as predictably as the sun rising in the East, global warming activists dressed up as journalists are giving the latest alarmist “research” paper unwavering and uncontested support and coverage.

But there is one brave soul – one brave scientist who had the courage to look at the research study objectively and release his own conclusions. read more

California Wildfires Were 100 Years in the Making

I think all would agree that the California wildfires have been a tragic loss to life and property. The devastation caused has been

Prescribed Burn

nothing short of catastrophic. Video and pictures of the town of Paradise should cause anyone’s heart to sink.

However, this is not a disaster born of natural causes, but human-caused, and most of these wildfires could have been mitigated if not prevented all together, should the State of California and the federal government have heeded decades old warnings.

The federal government, for a century or so, has been taking various States’ forested lands in order to prevent mining, logging and “urban sprawl.” There goal is to keep these forests as pristine as possible, unaltered by human hands.

In February, 2018, California’s Little Hoover Commission published an 82 page report entitled “Fire on the Mountain: Rethinking Forest Management in the Sierra Nevada.” read more

Liberals in Washington State Like Money more than a Carbon Tax

from IBD:

Climate Alarmists Suffer Huge Blow As Liberal Washington State Votes Down Carbon Tax

Environmentalists were hoping to score a huge victory in Washington state with a statewide tax on CO2 emissions. Alas, even liberals in Washington don’t believe climate change is that big a threat.

Before the election, glowing stories in the press talked about Washington “taking up the fight” on climate change after President Donald Trump dropped out of the Paris climate deal. The state would make history. It would be a “bellwether,” and would start a trend across the country.

Carbon Tax

The initiative proposed a $15 tax on each ton of carbon emissions in the state starting in 2020, with the tax rate climbing each year. It would have cost families in the state nearly $1,000 a year by 2035. read more

A few days ago NASA’s IceBridge project hit the news, but not for any of its impressive scientific observations. Instead, a casually tweeted photo of a strange rectangular iceberg captured people’s imagination. Now, NASA has offered up a few more shots, and video, of this unusual sight, helping explain this common yet rarely seen phenomenon. read more

WND Exclusive – Gotta Love Wind Energy – Not Really

For decades we’ve been bombarded by leftist environmentalists and global warming alarmists that renewable energy is the only way to go – the only way to save our planet from burning up.

States like Hawaii and California have even enacted mandates which dictate, by a certain year, that all electricity in these states must be derived from clean, non-carbon emitting “renewable” sources like solar and wind.

So obsessed has the left become with evil carbon, which happens to be the essential building block of all life, that they are overlooking a myriad of problems with their renewable cure all – especially when it comes to wind power.

Adding to wind energy’s rash of problems is the latest study done by researchers at Harvard which shows that wind energy actually causes global warming. Yes, you read that right. Wind power causes global warming. Isn’t that rich. read more

Fundamentally Transforming the EPA

from the American Spectator:

WND Exclusive – California’s Next Stupid Idea: 100% Clean Energy

Let’s pass a federal law to end all poverty by the year 2040. That will fix everything.

Oh wait – we already have hundreds of laws attempting to eradicate poverty that were instituted several decades ago. Funny thing – we still have poverty, and at about the same percentage as when the war on poverty began over a half a century ago.

It’s a clear example of the fact just because the government passes a law, it doesn’t magically make it so.

But that’s what leftists do. They see a perceived problem, which usually isn’t, and then set about to pass a law or regulatory mandate to “fix” a problem that isn’t. read more

Podcast – The Fad of Environmentalism Must be Waning

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

There’s an article posted on Campus Reform.org entitled, “Prof touts ‘ecosexuality’ as ‘environmental activist strategy’”

It’s the latest attempt at trying desperately to keep people engaged in the green movement.

So the left’s new attempt is the invention of romancing the trees.

Even the EPA Admits Ethanol is no Good

from IBD:

EPA Says Ethanol Damages The Environment — Isn’t It Time To Kill The Program?

Amid all the media hoo-ha over President Trump’s latest tweets, tariffs and the Russia investigation, you might have missed a significant report — the Environmental Protection Agency says ethanol made from corn and soybeans and added to our gasoline has become an environmental disaster. So why do we continue to make it?

The devastating report — based on, yes, actual “science” — shows that the forced addition of ethanol to the nation’s gasoline is making our air dirtier.

The irony, of course, is that ethanol’s entire rationale is that it would make our air cleaner. read more
