Northwest Coal Terminals Advance Despite Opposition From Environmental Groups | FreedomWorks

7252588898_7bd7af91fd

As I’ve documented in previous posts, the organized environmental left is marshalling forces to oppose Powder River Basin (PRB) coal exports to Asia via ports in the Pacific Northwest. Despite their best efforts at fear mongering about supposed environmental effects, local officials are beginning to push back against the prevailing narrative. Realizing that the opposition […]

Northwest Coal Train Fight – The Modern Day Spotted Owl | FreedomWorks

If it’s a cleaner burning coal and it lowers costs for consumers, why would environmentalists oppose it? The short answer is that they’ve waged a war on coal, and they want to kill the industry altogether.

IMG_3984-1024x682

On Tuesday, July 24, President Obama visited Portland. On that day, AFP Oregon organized a rally to remind him that there is opposition to his plans for America.

What we have in mind…ain’t breakfast in bed for 200,000! Nope, it’s bigger than that. This is Rio+20, baby! And what we have in mind…is abject poverty for 350 million Americans. Behold your new, federally-mandated lighting system! Like this:Like Loading…

“Green” vs “Green”

steensmtn

There was an article recently in the Oregonian, “Lawsuit against wind energy project near Steens Mountain pits green groups against green project“.   After reading the article it became clear that there is just no pleasing some people. I am skeptical of “green” energy, particularly wind farms, especially in Oregon where we have an abundance of […]

Through the Royal Astronomical Society in London the Danish scientist Henrik Svensmark released new scientific evidence in the last week that has not yet hit the mass media.  This new examination could revolutionize the way that we view our world’s climate and even the history of life on Earth.  Professor Svensmark examined the history of how […]

Energy Department Prepares To Throw More Taxpayer Money Away On ‘Green’ Loans

0318_1

Here we go again! Andrew Restuccia reports at The Hill: The Energy Department said Thursday it expects to begin tentatively approving new taxpayer-backed loans for renewable energy projects in the coming months. The announcement comes about seven months after Solyndra, the California solar firm that received a $535 million loan guarantee from the administration in […]

Gordon Fulks, Chuck Wiese, Bobby Corser question Phil Mote and Andreas Schmittner

Gordon Fulks, Chuck Wiese, Bobby Corser question Phil Mote and Andreas Schmittner

At the ballyhooed Global Warming Lecture at PSU tonight, questions from the floor ended up getting asked after all. One can now understand why Dr. Mote initially put up such a fight to avoid them. The open laughter at some answers, combined with the refusal to answer others, combined with the dismissal of facts in […]

Dear AMS: Global Warming Alarmist Previously Wanted Debate

As most folks reading this are already aware, the American Meteorological Society’s event for this Tuesday, April 10th, featuring government employees and global warming alarmists Phil Mote and Andreas Schmittner, will not be not be taking questions from the audience. There will be a Q&A of sorts, but it will be more like a politician’s […]

Things Look Different Here

Having solved all other problems, activists in Clatsop County are pushing to ban elephants lions, tigers, primates, and an array of other animals from exhibition or performance. No word on whether they covered hippos. But they left exemptions for horse shows, rodeos, and other stuff that they likely knew would be shot down in a heartbeat if […]

Guest Post: Oregon AMS Allows Phil Mote’s Climate Hysteria To Go Unchallenged

Breaking news from our friend, Gordon Fulks, PhD in the Oregon American Meteorological Society equivalent of a Friday Afternoon News Dump™: Hello Everyone, In a stunning development this afternoon, we learned that the Oregon AMS meeting being held next week as a counterpoint to our climate presentation to them in January will not permit ANY […]

Thousands of “Green Jobs”! Billions of Your Green.

Thousands of “Green Jobs”! Billions of Your Green.

The horribly misnamed Solar Trust of America got a $2.1 billion dollar loan guarantee from the Obama adminstration almost exactly one year ago. They were going to build a solar thermal power plant (“going to” being the operative term, here) – using an array of mirrors to focus sunlight onto a water tower, which would generate steam, […]

  • Capital budget’s impact on school construction funding July 21, 2017
    The third special session ended yesterday without the passage of the $4.2 billion capital budget. Legislators were unable to agree on a water-rights bill to address the Supreme Court’s Hirst decision, an issue rural representatives had tried to raise repeatedly throughout the session. “We’ve never seen anything like this before, but the stakes have never […]
  • Ranker: Unconscionable that Senate Republicans blocked vote on capital budget July 21, 2017
    Sen. Kevin Ranker, D-Orcas Island, released this statement after Senate Republicans refused to allow a vote on the state capital budget: It is incredibly unfortunate that on the final day of the special legislative session, the Senate Republicans placed their political agenda ahead of the wellbeing of our children, mentally ill, homeless, and public and […]
  • Capital budget, Ryan Calkins, #dadhacks July 20, 2017
    With luck, today will be the last day of the 2017 legislative session, giving us a whopping 12 days before the August primary.  We’ve got a few data points for you, both qualitative and quantitative, on the session and the ballot box in this edition of the Morning Wire. As always, thanks for reading our […]
  • On the Road July 22, 2017
    Since the completion of the interstate highway system, we have paid for transportation—and paid a lot: 40,200 deaths last year, up 6 percent from the 37,757 automotive fatalities of the year before. By a huge margin, car wrecks are the leading accidental cause of death in America. Year after year, we hurtle down the road […]

  • “Stability” Is Another Word for “Lack of Accountability” July 22, 2017
    A bill in the California legislature would give Caltrain, the commuter trains that connect San Jose with San Francisco, “permanent financial stability.” That’s good news if you think you will be riding Caltrains one thousand years from now, but it’s bad news for the taxpayers who will have to “permanently”–however long that is–pay for running […]
  • HUD Backs Off on Housing Mandate July 21, 2017
    In a case with national ramifications, the Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has effectively given up on its efforts to impose high-density housing on low-density suburbs in the name of racial integration. HUD had ordered Westchester County, New York, to build low-income housing in response to claims that county zoning led to segregated […]
  • Will Miami Settle for Modern Transportation? July 20, 2017
    “Can Miami afford more rail?” asks the Miami Herald. “Or will it settle for buses?” That’s like asking if you can afford an IBM 700 mainframe computer from the 1950s or if you will settle for a MacBook Pro. Both buses and laptop computers are far less expensive than rails and mainframes, but the former […]
