Agenda 21 in Action – The Assault in Coos County

obama_finger

We hear a lot about Agenda 21, which often sounds either conspiratorial or theoretical. It’s this “thing” that’s out there. But right now, the people in Coos County are under assault by the environmental crowd, working in conjunction with State and Federal agencies. It’s Agenda 21 put into action. And real people are being impacted. Take […]

“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 […]

Marine Board Misses Its Chance to Reverse Decades of Exclusion

Nuclear

It’s hard to imagine it now, but the high water mark for inclusiveness in the use of Oregon’s natural beauty came in 1967, with the adoption of the Oregon Beach Bill. Championed by Republican Governor Tom McCall and embraced by a Republican-controlled House, the Beach Bill historically opened the entire stretch of Oregon’s Pacific Ocean […]

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 […]

Oregon Wolves

800px-WolfRunningInSnow

The big news as 2011 thankfully draws to a close is that OR7 hiked around 700 miles from the Wallowas to the California border, which the young wolf crossed on Thursday without answering border checkpoint queries regarding whether or not he was carrying any fruit or other vegetable material from Oregon into the pristine environs of northern […]

Attack Of The Overlords

overlord

“Going green” is not a choice any longer. It’s now a requirement – as Washington, D.C. resident Patricia White has discovered to the tune of $2,000. Her crime: emptying “kitty litter” into the garbage, rather than recycling. So hard-core are they in Marion-Berryland that inspectors pawed through her garbage to determine whether or not she was in […]

Unlawful Diversion

Unlawful Diversion

You good conservationists out there are probably unaware of this, but the rainwater that falls onto your propertybelongs to the government – not to you. Oh, they’ll tax-and-fee you to remove the stuff, but it isn’t yours. Mark Miller, owner of a car dealership in Utah, found that out the hard way, after he set up a […]
