Green Extremes Prompt Political Backlash

By Marita Noon | On Sep 16, 2013 | No Comments

Last week, while America dithered over whether or not to depose Syria’s president, an ocean away, a different leader was decisively dumped. The election of Australia’s new prime minister has international implications. On September 5, in a landslide election, Tony Abbot became Australia’s new Prime Minister—restoring the center-right Liberal-National coalition after six years of leftward economic polices. Conservatives the world

Fade to Black

By Marita Noon | On Aug 19, 2013 | No Comments

The power plant closures are coming! The power plant closures are coming! And while no one is riding through town to announce the news, the results to America could be nearly as dire as the coming of the Redcoats. Despite millions already spent on modifications, fully functional coal-fueled power plants are being shut down—not because they are not needed but due to ideology.

The Dirty Politics of ‘Clean Energy’

By Marita Noon | On Jul 28, 2013 | No Comments

Gas pump signage declaring “contains up to 10% ethanol” is so ubiquitous, most of us probably don’t even see it anymore—let alone think about why it is there, what it really means, or how it impacts the price of the gallon of gas being pumped. Despite its omnipresence, ethanol is suddenly center stage. On July 24, the House Subcommittee on

Abound Solar, Unbound Hypocrisy

By Sean Paige | On Jul 16, 2013 | No Comments

In the World According to Greens, oil and gas extracting, piping and refining are the only energy activities with environmental consequences if not managed responsibly. So as not to create cognitive dissonance, or shatter the mass delusion, the dirty little secrets of so-called clean energy are discounted or ignored, as if wind turbines and solar panels appear on Earth by the grace of Gaia, springing from magic beans planted in organic urban gardens. It’s not true, of course,

Binz There, Done That

By Sean Paige | On Jul 6, 2013 | No Comments

President Obama’s recent nomination of Colorado’s most ardent green guru to chair the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission probably didn’t tell us anything we didn’t already know about this administration’s infatuation with “green energy” panaceas, as it doubles-down on pie-in-the-sky while attacking the tried-and-true. After all, former Colorado Public Utilities Commission Chair Ron Binz is nothing if not a fan of windmills and

Senate May Yet Have Its Say on O’s War on Coal

By Phil Kerpen | On Jul 1, 2013 | 1 Comment

So much for the denials. An administration that throughout its 2012 re-election campaign denied it was waging a War on Coal has now come out and publicly declared its intention to shut down coal-fired power plants — putting hundreds of thousands of Americans out of work and sending electricity prices skyrocketing. Obama claims he can do it all with no

Damning Praise from Gang Green

By Sean Paige | On Jun 27, 2013 | No Comments

A legislative guide that purports to enlighten Colorado voters about the environmental record of their state lawmakers has just been released for the 15th year in a row, and enlighten it does—though not in the way its authors intended. The 2013 Colorado Legislative Conservation Scorecard, compiled by the environmental group Conservation Colorado, ranks the members of the General Assembly on

Biased Polls and Accomplice Pundits

By Sean Paige | On Jun 24, 2013 | No Comments

We all know the secret to agenda-driven polling: ask a loaded question and you’ll get a similarly-slanted answer. Journalists know the trick, too, but they sometimes seem happy to go along with the dishonest charade, and suspend their legendary stance of dogged skepticism, if they share the agendas of those conducting such polls. Someday, perhaps, we’ll be treated to the results of a
