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”

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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, […]

    The state budget covers two years at a time, so why make budget writers look ahead further? It’s because the decade preceding 2013 often saw legislators propose or make spending choices that would balloon in the next budget cycle.

  • The New Feudalism April 26, 2016
    Feudalism–an economic system in which all land is owned by the monarch and everyone else must pay rent to use that land–supposedly ended hundreds of years ago.
