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 […]

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.

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.

“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 […]

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, […]

  • Treating the Symptoms, Not the Problems August 29, 2016
    Portland-area politicians love to build things. In 2004, Multnomah County, the county in which Portland is located, built a new jail, called Wapato, at a cost of $58 million even though county officials knew they had no money to operate the jail. It has been empty ever since. Now officials want to spend $60 to […]
  • Travelogue August 26, 2016
    Interstate 405 is crossed by numerous bridges as it circles halfway around downtown Portland, and none of those bridges are estimated to be capable of withstanding a severe earthquake. Rather than update the bridges, Portland is going to spend $5.9 million building a bike-pedestrian bridge across the freeway that can survive a 9.0 earthquake. After […]
