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.

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.

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 continuing economic struggles. From raising [...]
In another round of debate that’s become as perennial in the Legislature as the Seahawks playing in the Super Bowl, renewable energy advocates are squaring off with utilities over Washington state’s renewable energy mandate. The post Renewable Energy Mandate Revisions Resurface in Olympia appeared first on Washington State Wire.
Eight in 10 Americans believe science has made life better for most people, but they still don’t trust scientists — and/or aren’t aware of their consensus — on many of the most important science-related issues of the day. And that goes for far more than just climate change. And it includes plenty of Democrats too. The post Americans’ Increasing Distrust of S
A bill to boost the state minimum wage to $12-an-hour over four years passed out of a House committee Thursday, but not before an opposed GOP lawmaker ripped minimum-wage activists as entitled in a “kids-these-days” diatribe.

1) The ISIS prisoner exchange scheduled for Thursday did not take place. Jordan was prepared to turn over imprisoned terrorist, Rishawi, in exchange for a captured Jordan pilot. The deadline for the exchange was at “sunset” but Jordan did not turn over the militant because they had not received proof that their pilot was still alive. … Continue reading Top I
1) ISIS threatened to kill a hostage if a new deadline for an exchange (sundown today) was not met. Jordan announced they would be willing to trade suicide bomber, Sajida al-Rishawi for the captive Jordanian pilot, Lieutenant Muath al-Kasaesbeh. The fate of Kenji Goto, the Japanese man also held, was not mentioned by the Jordanian government. 2) The Pentag
Guest: JUST ME! Japanese Hostage Crisis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izPbmnVmCnA The Islamic State released a video of two Japanese hostages, Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa. In a break from previous ISIS messages, the terrorists announced a 72-hour deadline to receive a $200 million ransom. While announcing a deadline is new to ISIS, the request for ranso
The last 100 or so years of academic literary criticism have been spectacularly heterogeneous. A century that began with dons arguing about Chaucer’s verbs as if their lives were at stake and showering one another with Festschriften ended with Jonathan Goldberg’s famous essay ‘The Anus in Coriolanus.’ The same poem by, say, Marvell might, depending upon whom
The Phoenix veterans’ hospital does not have accurate data on nearly a quarter of patients in need of urological care, according to a new report by the inspector general. “In approximately 23 percent of the total cases reviewed, we frequently found approved authorizations for care, notations that authorizations were sent to contracted providers, and often sc
Supporters of a Milwaukee streetcar boondoggle are chiding a city alderman for expressing the fear that streetcar passengers could be vulnerable to crime. Apparently, opponents of progressive ideas like streetcars aren’t supposed to use real facts when making the case against those ideas. The Bureau of Transportation Statistics reports crime by transit mode.
Self-driving cars could “make congestion dramatically worse,” warns a headline in the Atlantic‘s CityLab. Simulations show that, if just 25 percent of cars on the road are self-driving, the article says, there will be a lot more delays at intersections.

With its “vibrant mix of residential, retail, commercial and green space,” Arlington County, Virginia is exactly where a lot of Millennials in the Washington DC area would like to live–at least according to one such Millennial named Harrison Godfrey.
