Interesting post from Trey Garrison: Urban yokels like to complain about urban and suburban sprawl, but it turns out one of the reasons the DFW has been spared from the national real estate bubble is because — with the exception of the forwardDallas! plan — Dallas and the surrounding ‘burbs aren’t saddled with onerous “smart […]

 EXCERPT from Lights Out in 2009?  (PDF) While renewable energy proponents, and some elected officials, are saying that the U.S. needs to only add renewable power facilities such as wind farms, the annual capacity factor of wind generators is typically about 25 – 35 percent. However, the probability that wind generators are available at their […]

The Cognitive Dissonance of the Media in relation to Global Warming EXCERPT: it is especially pathetic sophistry to claim, as dedicated `global warmers’ are wont to do, that `natural forces’ are having the temerity to “suppress” `global warming’. The fundamental point has always been this: climate change is governed by hundreds of factors, or variables, […]

The Senior Economics Writer for the Wall Street Journal, Stephen Moore, writes about the authoritarian climate surrounding recycling in his op-ed “Gang Green” (a very appropriate title on several levels). Excerpt from the article: Do-gooders also once wanted to “celebrate diversity,” but total conformity seems to be the aim of those in Seattle these days, […]

I was pleased to see that our U.S. Congressman, Dr. Michael Burgess, joined the revolt on Friday afternoon, 01Aug08, against the draconian tactics of Democrat House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi wishes to replicate the failed energy policies of California on a national level. Democrats have even shut […]

Top Australian greenhouse expert now a skeptic Leaving the church of Al Gore and entering the bright sunshine of climate reality. I DEVOTED six years to carbon accounting, building models for the Australian Greenhouse Office. I am the rocket scientist who wrote the carbon accounting model (FullCAM) that measures Australia’s compliance with the Kyoto Protocol, […]

Of course, we saw plenty of hypocrisy — especially the fact that Gore didn’t ride his bike or take public transporation to the event. He didn’t even take his Prius! Instead, he brought a fleet of two Lincoln Town Cars and a Chevy Suburban SUV! Even worse, the driver of the Town Car that eventually […]

The irradiation of food to kill disease-causing bacteria would dramatically reduce deaths from salmonella, E.coli bacteria and other microbes. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that 75 million Americans (1 in 4) get sick and 5,000 die every year from food-borne bacteria. Three children died in Washington State in early 1993 after eating Jack […]

A really good article in the ST today about a building that is using a more common sense approach to “Going Green.” Mitchell Schnurman: There is more than one way to go green By Mitchell SchnurmanStar-Telegram Staff Writer Like most home builders these days, Frank McCaslin is especially eager to sell his stock of finished […]
