Capitol Climate Action – Mass Civil Disobedience

December 19, 2008 // 0 Comments

Quite a few environmental groups are organizing an event that will send a powerful message to congress. Their wish is to halt the building of Coal Plants immediately with fear that each new plant will set us back 50 years on the environmental front. On March 2, 2009, thousands of people will emerge on “Capitol Coal-fired Power Plant in Washington DC– a plant that literally powers Congress with dirty energy.” For more info: Capitol Climate […]

Fair and Balanced?? The Coverage of the UN Climate Conference

December 11, 2008 // 0 Comments

I realize that there are a lot of things going on in the news these days, but I find it amazing that when something like the UN Climate Conference is happening in Poland as we speak, I am hard-pressed to find anyone covering it. Yes, I realize that the economy is in the forefront of everyone mind,(mine included). And Bailouts are the hot topic at the water-cooler. But, (and you knew there was going to […]

Another Oxymoron – Clean Coal

December 10, 2008 // 2 Comments

My favorite commercial on television lately is one that opposes “Clean Coal”. It actually starts off with a man who is dressed in a yellow hard hat and promises a tour of a “Clean Coal” factory. As he walks you through the doors of the factory, he is showing you every inch of the production plant that offers “Clean Coal”. But as we see him walk around and shot over the machines, what you see […]

Asking the EPA to regulate Carbon Dioxide Pollution

November 26, 2008 // 0 Comments

Friday is the last day to voice your opinion on whether the EPA — the Environmental Protection Agency — should regulate carbon dioxide pollution, the primary cause of the climate crisis. This is a big deal. The EPA is taking public comment before making a ruling. I sent my message in and it will appear on the EPA’s website, and be part of the public record. Of course, special interests — like the oil and […]

Bye Bye Mr. Waxman

November 20, 2008 // 0 Comments

By a secret vote of 137 to 122, House Democrats ended the 28-year reign of John Dingell(who is literally married to an executive for GM) by replacing him with Henry Waxman , the author of the “Safe Climate Act” and a true global warming champion. Henry Waxman will now be the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee. This is as momentous for the likelihood of science-based global warming policy as the election of […]

President Elect Obama Makes A Committment to Stop Global Warming!

November 18, 2008 // 0 Comments

If you asked me a year ago if I thought that this could happen, I would have said, “not in this life time.” I have spent too long trying to convince people that there is such a thing as Global Warming. I was getting very tired of hearing myself talk. Now… I can say this: We will soon have a President in the White house that has declared his commitment to Clean Renewable Energy! Wahoo! […]

Who Would Shakespeare Choose for Obama’s Cabinet?

November 16, 2008 // 0 Comments

The whole world is watching the United States once again, wondering who will be the players that will help President Elect Obama accomplish all that he sets out to do. Like the Shakespearean audience awaiting the reveal of his cast of characters, we too are also waiting to see who will be cast as a part of our future, our history. So far, here are some of the names circulating for President Elect Obama’s new […]

Britain’s Eye On POTUS – President Of The United States

November 14, 2008 // 0 Comments

Hello, my name is Michael and I’m a British person. I know this because I watched the American election, despite it having no apparent significance to my life. I sat, glued to my computer, watching the results come in. “Wow, Pennsylvania has turned blue, that’s a bad sign for the Republicans. And look, Ohio has turned blue as well! Surely an Obama victory is certain, now!” I decided at 3.30 am, somewhere between Ohio and […]

A “Shout Out” to Charlie Crist.

November 13, 2008 // 0 Comments

Here’s another “shout out” to Charlie Crist for having the fortuitousness of knowing when to be smart about a land deal. The state of Florida is in the process of purchasing U.S. Sugar, the nation’s biggest producer of sugar cane, and restore the land around Lake Okeechobee. The hope is to not only turn the farmed land back into it’s natural state, but also to help restore the Everglades. Originally, the deal included the purchase […]

Hey Detroit! Are You Listening??

November 12, 2008 // 0 Comments

I was watching the The Morning Joe with Joe Scarborough this morning. He reported that President Elect Obama and Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, are supporting a bailout for the auto industry. In return for the bailout, they are asking for production of more environmentally friendly cars that give us 40 mpg and fuel alternatives, such as electric and hydrogen. A comment was made that the government shouldn’t have to impose such a requirement […]

A “Shout Out” to Howard Dean

November 11, 2008 // 0 Comments

Since Governor Sarah Palin gave a “shout out” to a third grade class during her only Vice Presidential Debate this past fall, I have had the urge to do the same. So my “Shout Out” goes to the Democratic National Committee Chairman, Howard Dean. I feel that it was his efforts with the “50-State Strategy” that gave President Elect Obama the infrastructure that he needed to have a successful campaign. Howard Dean became a common […]

Doesn’t It Make Sense?

If we are to invest in America and create more jobs that will free us from our independence from Foreign Oil, why wouldn’t we invest in Alternative Energy? var PLUCKIT_APIKEY = ‘f407aef9-6bfd-414d-a47e-11340068dff1’; var PLUCKIT_WIDGET_OPTIONS = { ‘direction’ : ‘horizontal’, ‘numberOfTags’ : ‘5’ }
