Guess what? Antarctica's

Some Environmental Groups Offer Cash For Conservation
private stewardship --
how public stewards can turn out to be total jerks
you can't get rid of
nation's worst environmental villain ...with a sordid history of leaking
radioactive waste into drinking water, dumping
sewage into national parks, spewing jet fuel into
the ocean, pouring PCBs into rivers, etc., etc.,
slap the EPA on the wrist for unscientific
science, and Congress, for unconstitutionally
"sprawl" statistics are meaningless
|In his Earth
Day article, Jonathan Adler, author of The
of Kyoto, makes the point that private
stewardhsip truly delivers on environmental
protection. And in his,
Patrick Michaels shows how apparently any
facts at all will do to "feel certainty"
about global warming. (Also see: "Challenging

He's just not one of the more common type who try to hide their murderous agendas.
|"...America's news media and largest periodicals don't have it [that tiny grain of knowledge]. They work by the T&P (trust and parrot) method. They may differ in whom to trust and parrot; but they share a common inability to evaluate. They will find two opposing viewpoints and manufacture a 'controversy;' for they think objectivity lies halfway between the truth and a lie (or worse, between two lies)." -- introduction to the Access to Energy Newsletter|
|If it were true that a heavy concentration of industry
is destructive to human life, one would find life
expectancy declining in the more advanced countries. But
it has been rising steadily. Here are the figures on life
expectancy in the United States:

"Anyone over 30 years of age today, give a silent 'Thank you' to the nearest, grimiest, sootiest smokestacks you can find." -- Ayn Rand, "The Anti-Industrial Revolution," an essay included in the book, Return of the Primitive: the Anti-Industrial Revolution

|"Clinton realized that America could not economically
afford the Protocol Gore negotiated. The Clinton-Gore
Energy Department found Kyoto would lead to $400 billion a
year in lost output. ... Gore tries to throw Enron on the
back of the current administration. But it was Enron Board
Chairman Kenneth Lay who sold Clinton-Gore on Kyoto's cap
and trade system. Gore, Clinton, and Treasury Secretary
Robert Rubin met with Lay on Aug. 7, 1997 to go over goals
and procedures for the Kyoto session. ... The corporate
smoking memo here was not that from an ExxonMobil adviser
to oppose Dr. Watson, but the Enron internal memo saying
Kyoto 'would do more to promote Enron's business than
almost any other regulatory initiative'." -- Ken Adelman HERE.
"Being a politician means never having to say you're sorry. You don't have to say, 'I never should have voted to subsidize that ridiculous Enron project in India.' ... After all, they're greedy businessmen and you're a selfless public servant."-- Harry Browne
"It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people who pay no price for being wrong." -- Thomas Sowell
Enron, of course, is exactly the kind of corporation which could not exist in pure capitalism. As a creature, in effect, of politicians, it was deliberately converted from a small pipeline company into an international conglomerate by conniving scoundrels who designed it from the beginning to use the power of their politician-friends to give it government contracts, subsidies, monopoly powers, and favorable regulations to force prospective customers to do business with them, essentially at gunpoint. Obviously, this is fascism, not capitalism.

I wish that some way could be found to add up all the
staggering costs imposed on millions of ordinary people, just so
a relative handful of self-righteous environmental cultists can
go around feeling puffed up with themselves. -- Dr. Thomas
