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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

  • Biden Used False Data to Smear Marine Corps Over Armored Vehicle Request from Iraq April 24, 2017
    The story on the front page of USA Today in 2007 made a sensational claim: Military leaders in wartime had failed to provide troops in Iraq being killed by roadside bombs with mine-resistant jeeps. The post Biden Used False Data to Smear Marine Corps Over Armored Vehicle Request from Iraq appeared first on Washington Free […]
  • U.S. Weighs More Aid for Saudis in Yemen to Move Nation Toward Political Solution April 24, 2017

The post U.S. Weighs More Aid for Saudis in Yemen to Move Nation Toward Political Solution appeared first on Washington […]
  • The Best Thing Ever to Have Come Out of Canada April 24, 2017
    If I were inventing a country off the top of my head, I bet it would look a lot like Canada. The landscape is beautiful, the weather perfect. Everyone has health care. The government did not ostentatiously bail out its banks in 2008. The citizens are kind beer-drinking sports fans who will give driving directions […]
  • Reason #2 to Stop Subsidizing TransitSubsidies Haven’t Increased Ridership April 21, 2017
    In 2015, the American Public Transportation Association issued a press release whose headline claimed that transit ridership in 2014 achieved a new record. However, the story revealed that 2014 ridership was the highest since 1956. That’s no more a record than if it was the highest since 2013. The truth is that America’s urban population […]
  • Reason #1 to End Transit SubsidiesIt’s the Most Costly Transportation We Have April 20, 2017
    Fifty-three years ago, the transit industry was mostly private and earned a net profit. Today, it’s almost entirely publicly owned, and subsidies have grown out of control. It’s time to take a stand and say all transportation subsidies are bad, but transit subsidies are the worst. The National Transit Database says agencies spent more than […]
  • Another Rail Boondoggle April 19, 2017
    After holding a final public hearing last night, officials in Durham, North Carolina will probably decide next week to build a $3.3 billion ($2.4 billion construction plus $900 million interest on debt) light-rail line from Durham to Chapel Hill. It is hard to imagine any place that is more poorly suited for rail transit. The […]
