Hillary Clinton and Jill Stein on Fracking

If throwing environmentalists under the bus worked for Obama, why won’t it work for Hillary Clinton? […]

A Very Cold Warming?

From where I sit as I write this, I can look outside through a window, and see, even in the dim light of this early hour, that it is very snowy, and very cold, outside. It is easy to forget, in these conditions, that last year was the hottest year for Planet Earth in the […]

Roll Call: The House Democrats Who Voted For The XL Keystone Pipeline

The bill was written by Republicans, but it wasn’t just Republicans who voted for this anti-environment legislation. 29 Democrats joined the Republican Party to vote for the Keystone XL pipeline. […]

Is This A Satanic Bill From Republicans In Congress?

Christian literalists warn to be on the lookout for anything that incorporates the number 666, because “666 is the number, or name, of the wild beast with seven heads and ten horns that comes out of the sea.” You may be thinking, “What beast with seven heads and ten horns that comes out of the […]

Aaron Schock Says No Jobs Can Be Created Unless America Burns Huge Amounts Of Dirty Coal

It sounds like an exaggeration, but these are the words that actually came out of the mouth of Republican Congressman Aaron Schock yesterday: “No corporation, however globally well-positioned or integral to our state’s economy, can create or save American jobs given the current administration’s anti-fossil fuel agenda.”

Representative Schock was complaining about regulations designed to […]

Roll Call: Anti-Environment Democrats Who Voted To Send Tar Sends Pouring Into The USA Through The Keystone XL Pipeline

Today, the U.S. Senate voted to approve S. 1., legislation to approve the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, despite strong environmental problems and the export of American steel jobs overseas for the duration of the construction. The legislation was passed without meaningful reform, a corrupt giveaway to the fossil fuels corporations.

Most of the […]

Five House Democrats Help Republicans Chain America To Outdated Energy Technology

In the 20th century, America discovered how to harness the power of fossil fuels. It was a powerful source of energy – for its time. That was generations ago, however, and America’s energy needs have changed.

Coal, methane, and crude oil don’t meet our century’s need for sustainable, clean, advanced sources of energy. Yet, the […]

Rick Santorum vs. Science – Who Wins?

Rick Santorum is running for President again, using old talking points from the last century. Santorum is claiming that climate change is a “hoax”, though he has never been able to point to any specific evidence of the supposed hoax.

Now, Santorum is saying that, even if climate change is real, there’s no point of […]

Three Senate Democrats Join Climate Change Deniers

This week, Senator Bernard Sanders offered an amendment to S.1, Republican legislation to approve the construction Keystone XL tar sands pipeline across the American Midwest. The amendment didn’t require any action. It simply consisted of the reality and urgency of climate change, affirming the following points:

“(1) climate change is real;

(2) climate change […]

14 Democrats In Congress Vote To Rush Fracking Pipelines Through With Less Time For Public Input

H.R. 161, approved yesterday by the U.S House of Representatives, provides a special fast track for new fossil fuels pipelines planned to bring huge amounts of methane, a greenhouse gas, to market from fracking operations in the Marcellus Shale.

If it receives final passage into law, the bill will radically shorten the time voters have […]

Scythe For America?

I’ve learned this morning about a new British passion. Well, actually, it’s an old passion, but it’s newly reborn. I’m talking about the scythe.

The scythe is an ancient tool with a curved wooden handle and a long metal blade. Before gasoline-powered lawn mowers, the scythe was the tool people used to cut grass.

It’s […]
