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 […]

“Green” vs “Green”

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 […]

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 […]
