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

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

An Energy Plan Lenin Would Love

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

The Soviet Union not long ago was relegated to the “ash heap of history,” but the command-and-control economic policies that served as a hallmark of the regime – and which also helped hasten its demise – remain alive and well, and surprisingly popular, in a country that ought to know better. From economics to agriculture to energy policy, central planning is not in

The Silence of the Lambs

By Sean Paige | On Mar 31, 2013 | No Comments

In yet another act of sequester sadism, Uncle Scam is shorting Colorado $8.4 million in energy royalties that are owed to the state. It’s our share of $110 million Washington is withholding, as a means of maximizing pain in the ongoing game of sequester chicken. But these aren’t like other sequester-related cuts in some important ways, which ought to raise loud and persistent objections from our governor, senators

Sue-and-Settle Gets Needed Scrutiny

By Sean Paige | On Feb 18, 2013 | No Comments

The green-leaning “mainstream media” has largely ignored it, because the crusading regulators at the Environmental Protection Agency can do no wrong in the eyes of equally-crusading reporters, but Forbes contributor Larry Bell has a must-read write-up on the emerging sue-and-settle probe at the agency. What’s alleged is that agency insiders have a wink-and-nod arrangement with outside green groups: the ladder sue and the former happily settle, resulting in a mutually-desired expansion with the

Why Do You Think They’re Called “Mealworms”?

By Sean Paige | On Feb 8, 2013 | No Comments

The kids at Harrison High School in Colorado Springs undoubtedly were pretty grossed-out by the recent discovery of mealworms in the turkey noodle soup. But before long, if climate cultists and nutrition nannies get their way, it might be a regular item on the menu, whether school kids like it or not. Maybe you missed it, but yummy, scrumptious, highly-nutritious and low-fat mealworms recently were being touted

Rigged To Favor Radicals

By Sean Paige | On Feb 7, 2013 | No Comments

Some ”controversial” proposed energy leases were pulled from a pending auction by the Bureau of Land Management this week, delivering another blow to Colorado’s economy and jobs situation. But that’s become routine news across the West, since almost any drilling proposal generates “controversy” with the army of professional activists who roam the land, looking for opportunities to protest. The not-in-my-backyard (NIMBY) element was also a factor in this case, no doubt. But it’s

Energy Subsidy Hypocrisy

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

A looming “green energy” trade war with China highlights U.S. hypocrisy on energy subsidies, according to this insightful piece in Forbes.  Before we accuse other countries of subsidizing and Semenax protecting certain favored industries, via command-and-control economic policies, maybe we ought to take a long look in the mirror and adopt a few “free market reforms” of our own.
