Caught on Tape: Environmental Extremists Enjoy Protest Aboard Catered Yachts

Dateline Sunday July 28, 2013 – Portland Oregon:   “How Much Is Enough!?!?” asks Jill MacIntyre Witt, a former Occupier and Certified Presenter for Al Gore‘s Climate Reality Project. This shortly after she is caught on tape accepting deliveries and mowing down copious amounts of food aboard “The Gallant,” a private yacht which was one of […]

Oregon Environmental Commission Targets Fossil Fuels

84940461

If it’s successful, convenient, inexpensive, and makes our lives better, environmentalists want to kill it.  They won’t be happy until we’re all back in utopian bark hut villages, walking on dirt paths, illuminated only by moonlight. The Oregonian reports: Oregon’s Environmental Quality Commission voted 4-1 today to require fuel distributors to begin reporting the carbon content of […]

This is what ICLEI and Agenda 21 look like when they are put into implementation at the local level. KOBI 5 News reports: Generated energy in Oregon could soon come from the waves of the Pacific Ocean. The state is setting up a number of buoys along the Oregon coast in an effort to reduce […]

The Oregon “Conservation” League (i.e., the legalized-theft-and-destruction-of-private-property league) is mass-mailing an email saying Gov. Kitzhaber wants “input” on his 10-year Energy Plan for Oregon. Take a listen: I Spy Minute Thurs July 26 2012 Or read the transcript below. Here are the links mentioned in the Minute: Go here for details of the plan or […]

“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 […]

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 […]

Once again, we are faced with an election year. Democrats & Republicans and others will be begging for our vote and for our money while making lavish promises most have no intention of keeping or won’t be able to. We’ll see and hear each candidate boasting of some record or grand idea to fix our […]

  • State senator asks U.S. AG to intervene in King County’s safe-injection site plan February 17, 2017
    As King County officials work to open two safe-injection sites, state Sen. Mark Miloscia, R-Federal Way, is working at the state and federal level to block the sites. Miloscia’s bill that would ban sites where heroin users can safely inject around medical professionals, has passed out of committee, according to a press release from his office. […]
  • Column: Doug Ericksen is being too cute by half February 17, 2017
    The idea that someone can serve as a sitting state senator during the legislative session and hold down a full-time job on the side is ludicrous on its face to anyone remotely familiar with the duties of a state legislator. That’s why there has been no shortage of critiques of Sen. Doug Ericksen, R-Ferndale, attempting […]
  • Column: Inslee and the White House, or why we have a federal system February 17, 2017
    The parlor game of thinking through future elections can be entertaining.  I advocated for Jay Inslee to run for President in 2015, for example, in a column that drew private comments from both my left and my right of the “Are you serious?” sort. And, with the recent court battles led by AG Bob Ferguson […]
  • Congestion Cost U.S. $295 Billion in 2016 February 21, 2017
    Speaking of congestion (as the Antiplanner was yesterday), a new congestion scorecard from Inrix estimates that congestion cost America $295 billion in 2016, which is more than 1.5 percent of 2016 GDP. Where the Texas Transportation Institute’s previous estimates of congestion costs counted only the cost to commuters, Inrix adds costs to consumers who must […]
  • Good News and Bad News February 20, 2017
    Good news: The United States had 56,000 structurally deficient bridges in 2016. That’s good news because the number in 2015 was nearly 59,000. In fact, the number has declined in every year since 1992 (the earliest year for which records are available), when it was 124,000. The American Road and Transportation Builders thinks 2016’s number […]
  • The Economic Implications of Housing Supply February 17, 2017
    A new paper with the above title by urban economists Edward Glaeser and Joseph Gyourko provides more evidence to back up the Antiplanner’s recent paper on the New Feudalism. One of the major points of that paper was that the Obama administration’s plan to force suburbs to relax zoning codes to allow higher density housing […]
