Opposition to oil pipelines has led to sharp increases in train transport. Not only is that method less safe, it costs significantly more.
A new, 73-page paper about America’s “most visible environmental activist” doesn’t mention that he’s an emotional basketcase.
An oil pipeline is described as a “carbon bomb” that will impact the “children of all species forever.”
This blog will return in mid-September. In the meantime, here’s a video of a presentation I gave in Australia last month – and some thoughts on the bankruptcy of contemporary green analysis.
Why do journalists never doubt green groups?
In the world inhabited by this environmental crusader, climate change is “a crisis that’s breaking over our heads at this moment,” ExxonMobil peddles petroleum the way drug dealers peddle heroin, and we “have no choice” but to turn our backs on fossil fuels.
Those seemingly nice people brimming with such concern for the planet are actually profoundly intolerant.
People are surprised to learn that eco icon David Suzuki (who insists there are too many humans on the planet), has himself fathered five children. But his autobiography reveals this to be the case. It also tells us he began dating his second wife when she was 22 – and he was 35.
The video in which people are summarily executed for questioning the need for emissions reduction is being denounced by prominent global warming activists.

Smart, thoughtful people value dispassionate investigation, careful analysis & logical arguments. Eco guru McKibben seems to think we should listen to him because he cares. Because he cries.
Roy Spencer is a bona fide climate scientist who disagrees with the dangerous global warming hypothesis. I review his book Climate Confusion – and also discuss Bill McKibben’s The End of Nature.
