Marco Rubio signals that he’s anti-environmentalist and anti-feminist in the same (poorly worded and incorrectly punctuated) tweet: “Look at all this outrage over a dead lion, but where is all the outrage over the planned parenthood dead babies.” Rubio Tweet … Continue reading
Dr. Peter Ward, a paleontologist at the University of Washington, Seattle, is an atheist and prolific author (he’s written about a dozen books over his career). He’s also a skeptic concerning two things that a lot of secular people (including … Continue reading
Clear as a bell. Deserves to go viral.
Actually, not that much. Both are children of the Romantic tradition, but whereas one is enamored of nature, the other is enamored of capitalism. One posits leaving nature (with its natural selections) alone; the other posits leaving the market (with … Continue reading
I find Jay Shafer’s Thoreau-like experiment elegant and inspiring. Who needs a mortgage if you have creativity?
Last year, a friend of mine who bird watches noticed that I had promoted wind farms on my blog. He subsequently informed me that wind farms are not an environmentally uncomplicated form of energy. Each year approximately 40,000 birds die … Continue reading
Gap gods and pot holes: are Richard Dawkins’s materialist atheism and Rush Limbaugh’s anti-environmentalism akin to one another?
Why are so many people resistant to Richard Dawkins’s totally materialist explanation of the universe (that is, atoms and void are all that really exist, and they are eternal or came into existence out of nothing)? And it occurred to me this morning that … Continue reading
I finally got around to seeing Avatar this weekend, and while I thought the movie started rather slow, it grew on me. I liked it philosophically: it’s about knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing. And I liked the political subtext: … Continue reading
Atheist biologist Jerry Coyne, at his blog, gave the following title to one of his recent posts: Christians want orca stoned to death In the post, Jerry Coyne breathlessly announced: The Rightly Concerned website, an arm of the religious, right-wing … Continue reading
My kids think this iCarly mini-disaster movie trailer is funny, but with Copenhagen’s global climate talks failing this weekend, it seems to have an unpleasant saliency. Silly climate scientists! Prophets of doom and gloom! They sure are funny, aren’t they? Aren’t they?
And no plan B. In response to the failure of Copenhagen’s climate talks, an editorial writer at Spiegel bemoans humanity: Copenhagen’s collapse merely confirms the opinion of those who view climate change as some pipe dream of scientists, left-wing politicians … Continue reading
Environmental peace in our time? At Salon today, environmentalist Bill McKibben says that, with regard to global warming, civilization has an existential threat before it akin to Adolf Hitler. The slow-working of politics as usual, in other words, won’t work. You … Continue reading
One of the Arctic Ice Satellite Photographs That George Bush Was Hiding, and That Barack Obama Recently Declassified
More polar ice retreat images here.
The wind farm would have been in Texas, but transmission problems (getting the energy from the plains to where people live) seem to have been an insurmountable barrier to bringing Pickens’s ambitions to fruition. Apparently financing wasn’t going well either. Sad. … Continue reading
This video reminds me why I voted for Obama. It’s nice to have a calm and intelligent man in the White House with some environmental and liberal vision:
My wife and I are seriously thinking about getting the roof of our house painted white (for energy efficiency and environmental reasons). And today the New York Times has an article on the “White Roof Movement.” Money quote: Studies show that white … Continue reading
The very smart collection of professional energy watchers at TheOilDrum.com have arrived at something pretty close to a consensus: Oil “peaked” in 2008. Here’s the chart they present: And here’s what they say: As everyone knows, there is never a post on … Continue reading
This today in the NY Times: Just four weeks into Mr. Obama’s presidency, the Democrats boasted that they had already approved three major bills: a measure to curb pay-discrimination against women in the workplace, a broad expansion of the state … Continue reading
Tri Robinson is the pastor of a charismatic, evangelical Christian church in Idaho, and he’s also a SERIOUS environmentalist, and has even written a book on the subject of whether a conservative Christian can also be an eco-activist. (His answer: … Continue reading
