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

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.

800px-WolfRunningInSnow

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.
