  • Better to murder a billion littler, browner people (we've done nearly that in our history, anyway) than irk a captain of industry. This is the United States, for chrissakes, not a friggin' charity.read » brianwood

Game over: Senate abandons climate bill

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
The Senate's abandonment of climate legislation, confirmed last night, is not a victory of Republicans over Democrats, business over government, skeptics over believers. It's a failure of capitalism, above all, and a failure of capitalism's apprentice: democracy. In facing global warming, human beings have faced the unprecedented necessity--and the unprecedented possibility--of [...]

Nevermind climate change, fear the energy crunch

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Don't believe in global warming? There's a backup disaster. Even without the threat of climate change, economic disaster looms for businesses that fail to switch from fossil fuels to alternative energy sources, the insurance giant Lloyd's of London warns. "Companies which are able to plan for and take advantage of this new [...]

Extreme weather kills more Americans than war

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Safe to say, nothing is so bad that a hurricane can’t make worse. Take an existing problem, toss it around in the wind and smack it with flying debris - it’s certainly not going to improve. Shoddy construction is made worse, communication concerns - made worse, a struggling economy - [...]

I read a passage today in the New York Times that reminded me of one of my favorite moments from The Simpsons.  The passage, and the corresponding quote, after the jump, without commentary. From the New York Times:
Overwhelmingly, Americans think the nation needs a fundamental overhaul of its [...]

In response to Lindsey Graham kinda, sorta believes in Climate Change, if you do, he guesses

KISUMU, Kenya—The rainy season in East Africa is also the malaria season. Rain water collects in puddles and old tires and gutters. It also accumulates in discarded tin cans and in the folds of plastic shopping bags in garbage heaps. Malarial mosquitoes [...]

Lindsey Graham kinda, sorta believes in Climate Change, if you do, he guesses

Yesterday, Kate Shepard over at Mother Jones attempted to figure out what the hell Lindsey Graham (R-SC) thinks about Climate Change this week.  She had, uh, very little luck, because his position is completely incoherent.  Here's further proof that we're a nation of children ruled by liars.

Richard Lugar's "Practical Energy and Climate Plan" calls for increased energy efficiency in buildings and industry, increased vehicle efficiency, more choices in automotive fuels and more diverse domestic energy sources, all in the name of reduced dependence on foreign oil. The wrapper is [...]
