15 more power plants to close – Federal emissions standards are being blamed for the closure of 15 coal-fired plants and the loss of nearly 480 jobs in Georgia. Georgia Power plans to close the power plants, cutting its grid capacity by more than 15 percent, in a move the utility said was necessary to comply with federal regulations aimed at reducing air pollution.

Biofuel damaging to engines – We all know about the damage biofuel does to cars. It will get worse, much worse, once federal mandates kick in to use E 15.

$20 trillion oil find in Australia – Based on drilling and seismic exploration, the estimated amount of oil in the as yet untapped Arckaringa Basin surrounding Coober Pedy ranging from 3.5 billion to 233 billion barrels of oil. This is a huge game changer.

Peak oil bites the dust – Analysis of the Coober Pedy find.

global temperature changes No global warming for. . . – The lack of global warming keeps on. For 16 years now there has been zero warming. I know that some politicians and media claim the warming is accelerating. But it just isn’t so. The hysteria is needed to justify draconian policies and regulations limiting to human liberty.

Though temperatures are placid, human CO2 emissions skyrocket, thanks to red China and India. The data don’t seem to care about politics, and the “urgent” need to stop using oil and coal.   They have no heart, don’t bleed red.

Meanwhile something important is often missed. We must stop using the widely available energy sources because… (the science is proven, debate is over) … because it will cause catastrophic warming. But, at least on the decadal scale, the theory that CO2 is a huge control knob is disproved. The longer this continues – oh, and pray there is no cooling – the less credibility, and more shame, accrues to global warming alarmists.

Biofuel Policies Increase Death and Disease – It may cause a sense of self-satisfaction to be green. It may seem cool, taste righteous. But this may be a satisfaction that is misdirected.  Misguided and heavy handed environmental policies leave a trail of tears in their wake. Think on this next time someone tries to do a mind job on you, heaping  piles of guilt on your head unless and until you do whatever it is they have decreed is ‘green.’
