What “huge source of carbon pollution”. . . Paul Driessen a senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow writes "that tar sands production would add a minuscule 0.06% to US greenhouse gas emissions, a tiny fraction of that amount to global carbon dioxide emissions, and an undetectable 0.00002 deg F (0.00001 C) per year to useless computer-model scenarios for global warming."

I have linked to Paul's Essay at Sierra Foothill Commentary.

I have written about the EU Fleeing Going Green at Sierra Foothill Commentary.
Our political leaders and local bloggers often pointed to Europe, recommending that California follow the EU example. Now that the EU is fleeing going green to save their economy, now you would think that California Leaders would recommending California follow the EU example again. Oh wait, that does not fit Agenda 21 objectives.

I don't know how true it is but relatives in Wyoming claim their state is doing well because of its oil, coal and gas production. Therefore it's hard not to think the anti-oil grant consuming activists and leaders of America don't want our economy to improve.

Truly clueless George but I wouldn't expect anything different.

Completely without class, Ben...

As am I in this instance.....what's todays beef? Georges dismay at the imposition of maple syrup standards upsetting someone in the black community?

Bill Tozer

No worries. I get my maple syrup from Canada when I visit that uninhabited country. Go Maple Leafs. I always wondered why we just don't take the plunge and buy Canada. Their immigrants are highly educated and speak English. Well, guess we don't need to buy the French parts, just the rest of Canada. :)


Yup,, the Germans have given solar and wind the middle finger, and said,
" Screwin zee THIS!" They are going back to coal.
Anyone see the video of the last oil train derailment? See the fireball from
ONE crude oil tank car when it cooked off? That's some potent stuff! Which equates to less refining time.
The anti-pipeline folk never get the real priorities right. Do they really prefer to see train wrecks that REALLY mess things up? ( environmentally speaking) Warren Buffet makes plenty off each shipment.( Your top LIB 1%er)
But since he's a LIB money man,, that's "OK". ONLY conservative "rich guys"
are in Libby.
Now get this through your noggin anti pipeliners. Stopping the XL going through the U.S. isn't going to stop Can. from extracting that oil. ( ECO LIB plan at the core) China and Russia will be more than happy to take it off their hands.
BTW.. Canada DID "drill their way to prosperity".

What's real funny is "O" taking credit for our "oil and gas boom". Hardly a drop has come from FED or state lands. It's all private property the goods are coming from.
That's the greatness of the American people. No matter how many roadblocks government throws up, they sally forth and stick it to government oppression.

George Rebane

Walt 102pm - And moreover Walt, we recall that none of the oil production Obama's crowing about was enabled by his administration. It was all put in place under Bush2.

Internment Camps In Our Future - Scalia

Justice Antonin Scalia predicts that the Supreme Court will eventually authorize another a wartime abuse of civil rights such as the internment camps for Japanese-Americans during World War II.

"You are kidding yourself if you think the same thing will not happen again," Scalia told the University of Hawaii law school while discussing Korematsu v. United States, the ruling in which the court gave its imprimatur to the internment camps.

The local Associated Press report quotes Scalia as using a Latin phrase that means "in times of war, the laws fall silent," to explain why the court erred in that decision and will do so again.

"That's what was going on — the panic about the war and the invasion of the Pacific and whatnot," Scalia said. "That's what happens. It was wrong, but I would not be surprised to see it happen again, in time of war. It's no justification but it is the reality."

And who would the government thugs be interning this time -- Conservatives? Tea Party Members? Gun Owners?
