Repowering America? How about Refueling America?

This post is tagged “blog news” because of the new tag being introduced. To make up for a paucity of posts recently, I’m going to try to get in another post later today, following up on this one. I teased in my post on alternative sources of energy (which need to become primary sources of […]

Random Internet Discovery of the Week

Is it just me, or do I tend to get a lot of cat-related RIDs? Incidentially, Obama making energy his top priority at last night’s debate – among other things – was pure music to my ears.

Come on, you know this was what you were really looking for Friday.

An addendum to my original panicking-about-climate-change post: If we really are to reduce the presence of greenhouse gases in the way we may have to, it may take turning our cities into true concrete jungles. On to weaning ourselves off fossil fuels. I gave up on a couple of fronts Friday without making any real recommendations, but […]

Al Gore, I’m waiting for my reward.

I have another Pascal’s Wager on the topic of global warming: Regardless of whether you think global warming is primarily man-made, the last thing we should be doing is contributing to it.   But if we’re going to correct global warming as fast as I think we need to, we sure as hell better make […]

Debunking – or legitimizing? – climate change deniers

I’m trying to allow myself to build a bit of a buffer of posts so I can work in advance with little pressure, so I’m going to keep today’s post short and sweet. With luck, today’s Random Internet Discovery (look at the “internet adventures” tag in the sidebar) will be about politics so you’ll get […]

The most important issue in this election, the one that cannot be ignored under any circumstances, is global warming and climate change. I don’t care whether you believe […]

Now playing on C-SPAN 2:

“Senate Republicans are forcing the clerk to read the entire” much-ballyhooed climate change bill. The part in quotes is actually being displayed at the bottom of the screen. Absolutely disgraceful. Not just because I’m morally opposed to the filibuster, but because there is no reason whatsoever not to save the planet. When the s*** hits […]

"Earth Hour" figures to be a complete fiasco

First, there’s the fact that I only just heard about it… and it’s tonight (link courtesy Awful Announcing). That’s especially bad when you consider this is the second year they’re doing this. Then there’s the fact that it runs right up against the NCAAs in pretty much all the United States, prompting AA to ask, […]

Who says global warming is a myth?

It’s f***ing snowing outside. It’s f***ing snowing outside. It’s supposed to be SPRING, and it’s F***ING SNOWING in Seattle.
