The US EPA’s science advisers push back against Scott Pruitt’s attempts to dilute environmental regulation

Thought Piece The Double Standards of Reporting About the McCarthy and Pruitt EPAs The coverage about the last two EPA Directors, Gina McCarthy and Scott Priutt, could not be more different. For the ahistorical, the McCarthy EPA was found communicating with the writers of the “Indirect Health Benefit” before-during-after the 2015 Report was finished. The collusion [...]

Climate showdown of the decade?

Thought Piece First, I was there during Dr. Mann’s testimony on March 29, 2017 in front of the Committee of Science, Space, and Technology, where he compared himself to a oppressed Russian scientist from the Stalin era: As he put it, “Call people ‘deniers” all you want, use any name you want...beat them into submission, that’s [...]

Appeals court allows unusual ‘necessity’ defense for Enbridge protesters Pipeline protesters claim threat of climate change compelled them to act.

Thought Piece I had a nightmare last night about Global Warming (aka Climate Change), where anyone can legally commit perjury if they lied because of their higher moral calling. I woke up and remembered Climate Change has already created a large new genre for funding bias; *It funded 1,000s of politicized climate reports; It funds over [...]

Climate Litigation: The Latest Green Effort to Overturn Democracy

Though Piece “Climate Change Warriors Latest Weapon of Choice is Litigation.” I too am worried about the proliferation of environmental lawsuits in the US, at least 5,000. Although, it is a growth market for environmental attorneys and fungible green funding. Most of all, I am against small groups who think they know more than the voting [...]

“Nutty” is as Nutty Does – 2nd MVP Protester Goes Up a Pole in VA

Though Piece More bad behavior in VA. It is hard to retain a modicum of respect for any environmental group (or individual protester) who games the legal system or simply ignores the law, especially if they invoke their sense of moral rectitude, civil disobedience, and intellectual superiority. All of this, while various environmental groups have more [...]

Cuadrilla files injunction to stop trespassing at shale gas site

Though Piece These  British trespassers over the last 18 months are a great example of environmental  extremism and media manipulation, with a misguided sense of moral rectitude. Using name-calling, populist rhetoric, and demonization of fracking, these trespassers—English, Canadians or Americans—are nothing more than scofflaws and law breakers. From bad manners to environmental terrorism to tree sitting, [...]

Thought Piece My major complaint against (now former) Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has always been that he used extra-legal (at best) bullying tactics, not unlike former AG and disgraced Governor Elliot Spitzer. O.K. I have several complaints with Mr. Schneiderman: He has been ruthlessly political, overly arrogant, imperially ambitious, utterly shameless, and essentially lawless. I first [...]

Orion Energy Systems Chosen to Present At The 7th Annual Wall Street Green Trading Summit

Thought Piece  The conversation about quantified energy efficiency and emission reductions is as important now as it was a decade ago. I believe that my  Wall Street Presentation is also available through this link, but if not I would be happy to send you a copy. In a fractured world where scare tactics work, I cannot [...]

UN climate stalemate sees extra week of talks added

Though Piece As a reminder, the Paris Agreement is a voluntary accord, with many unreliable countries, no accounting standards and no independent verification. At Bonn recently, the international technocrats have been arguing that they are the only ones to be trusted, because they are intellectually and morally superior to the private sector. Pascoe Sabido, Corporate Europe [...]

In California, Climate Change Is an ‘Immediate and Escalating’ Threat A new state study lays out the evidence, from heat waves to droughts, wildfires and sea rise. It’s why California is fighting for tougher auto emissions standards.

Thought Piece It's harder and harder to find a trustworthy voice. Like the evolution of “global warming,” it all depends on who is choosing the words, the  "relevant facts" and who is doing the math. It simply depresses me beyond belief. Ultimately, the best of intentions and the bad outcomes of wrong-headedness are not strangers to [...]
