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 […]
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.
Someone handed me “a water” this afternoon. I like to have water, not “a water” in a bottle, but the person walked away to give other people “a water” before I could say no thank you. So, I took a look.
Here’s what I see on this bottle. It says that what’s inside is “purified […]
Lisa Haven, writing for the right wing web site Before It’s News, predicts a wide range of disaster for 2015. She forecasts “the rise of a One World Religion, an economic collapse, policed streets, and more Biblical end times signs… riots, earthquakes and likely numerous deaths“. Yet, the headshot that goes along with her byline […]

For a generation, Americans have disagreed about climate change. They have debated whether or not scientific data shows that Earth’s atmospheric temperatures are warming, and whether human activity is to blame.
Throughout it all, Americans have at least agreed on one thing: They have agreed that the issue of climate change is important to consider, […]
The Koch Brothers, who fund Republican candidates for public office, also donate money to colleges and universities. Supporting education is a wonderful thing to do.
According to an organization created by Greenpeace and Forecast The Facts, “There is mounting evidence to suggest that the Kochs are giving this money with strings attached. Their donations influence […]
I have been silent too long on this subject, worrying that the Speech Police are going to silence me. No more – I shall be brave.
I am a climate skeptic.
There, I said it.
I am a skeptic of wild assertions about climate change that have yet to be supported by good, solid science.
Chellie Pingree voted for the GOP Secret Science Reform Act. Perhaps Representative Pingree simply sees the way the wind is blowing, and is happy to go along with the rising tide of right wing politics in America, health, privacy and science be damned. […]
This morning, I walked out my front door to discover that sometime last night, a lavender plant, nearly a decade old, had been ripped out of the ground and thrown onto the sidewalk.
