China's Air Pollution - They Are Blaming The West And Some Are Trumpeting That Dirty Excuse

Tue, 20 Dec 2016 07:09:15 -0600

China has attempted for far too long to forgo environmental issues in order to continue its economic march forward. For three decades the Communist Chinese Government posted 10% year over year gains, recently that number has come down to 6% to 7% merely because it is so big now that there are not enough markets in the world to sell to for the amount of production that is possible there. Yes, but at what cost? Right now 2% of all of the pollution in California comes from China - think of that, it blows across the entire Pacific Ocean to pollute our skies.

Is Climate Change Going To Kill Us All - No, Without It We Wouldn't Even Be Here In The First Place

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 06:56:48 -0600

Many a world leader has stated that Climate Change is the most serious issue confronting humankind. But, I ask; what would a politician know about Climate Science if they are not even scientists? It's interesting that if you doubt Global Warming Theory - you are called a "Denier" of science because there is a so-called "consensus" on this issue with climate scientists who get their paychecks from research grants to prove global warming theory is correct, and yet, "consensus" doesn't have anything to do with actual science, consensus is more of a democratic political term.



CO2 Is a Molecule - It Is A Gas Above Negative 109.3 F, It's Not Evil

Mon, 12 Dec 2016 06:58:10 -0600

When it comes to Global Warming or Climate Change, I for one am not all that concerned about mankind's CO2 output - in fact, I am not too concerned with CO2 at all. Let's discuss this shall we? You see, human emissions from CO2 actually is a very small part of the total CO2 in the atmosphere (about 3% of the total CO2 output on Planet Earth is all). A large wildfire in Australia puts out more CO2 than all of China in 10 months, if you can believe that. If global warming alarmists are worried about CO2 output, then perhaps they need to go talk to coal burning European Nations, who by the way are also driving diesel cars emitting more CO2 and soot.

Help Wipe Away Mermaids' Tears - Plastic Pellets Look Like Fish Eggs to Birds

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 15:09:39 -0600

Mermaids may be mythical but their tears aren't. "Mermaids' Tears" is a term used to describe the tiny plastic pellets that many plastic items eventually break down into.

Harvest Season in October - What Does It Truly Imply?

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 07:20:49 -0500

Harvesting essentially means time of collecting a crop that is ripe and ready to be picked from the field. Reaping is chopping off or cutting of grain or pulse for harvest, with the use of specialized tools. Though for most small farms with less industrialized help or options, harvesting is the hardest part of farming, requiring lots of back-breaking labor, time and effort, must be completely, in a timely way, during the growing season, especially before wild animals, insects or disease has a chance to compete for the rewards on the stalks, plants, ground or trees. We still use the term Autumn, the term is said to originate in England. Hence season of gathering/harvesting the goodies and treats from underground, plants, trees and wherever else these delicious labor of love that farmers provide for us can be retrieved.

The Meaning and Reasons For Sustainable Development

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 08:08:35 -0500

Sustainable development is the strategic development of structures that seek to meet the needs of present and future generations through effective management and maintenance of natural resources. The main aim of sustainable development is to ensure that the present environmental needs of humans do not encroach on those that the future generations would also need and use. It is bent on sustaining thus 'maintaining' or 'preserving' the natural resources that we have now so that the future generations would also have them in ample supply. An "unsustainable situation" occurs when natural capital (the sum total of nature's resources) is used up faster than it can be replenished or replaced. Sustainability requires that human activity only uses nature's resources at a rate at which they can be replenished naturally.

The constitution states "that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness". As a 50-year-old African-American male, those rights were denied me the early part of my life. Although, most Americans will never feel the pain of Jim Crow but it was real.

What to Think About When Recycling Your Clothes for Cash

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 11:19:25 -0500

A lot of people still throw their unwanted clothes into the bin without any thought to the environment.

Is Global Warming a Plot to Control All of Humanity?

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 06:53:06 -0500

It's no secret that the global elitists of the Club of Rome want to limit human population. Indeed, we probably do have more people on said planet than we need, and although it isn't a total crisis yet, someday maybe in 50, 100, 200, 250 years it certainly will be. Some of these global elitists say the problem is Capitalism, as it creates abundance, but it also creates such huge economies of scale that it rapes the planet of resources and converts things into trash and waste - and if this continues the entire planet will be polluted with waste, plastics in the ocean, pollution in the skies, and agricultural fields laden with toxic chemicals - sounds dire indeed, or so their claim goes.

Don't Discuss Global Warming In Mixed Company At a Cocktail Party - Or Else!

Fri, 19 Aug 2016 06:38:04 -0500

All this arguing over politics and global warming seems to be similar to people arguing over religion - what that saying; "There are two things you shouldn't talk about in mixed company or at a cocktail party... " What is totally unfortunate is that Global Warming is now the third thing you can't talk about? Why? One side hijacked the conversation, told the world; "The science is settled, and 97% of scientists agree - discussion over," essentially that's it, no more talk, and they are steamrolling their agenda. Even the scientists in the field were taken-aback.

Major Points Of Contentions On Why Curbing CO2 For Global Warming Is The Wrong Policy

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 07:17:18 -0500

Let me go ahead and easily defeat some of the nonsense behind global warming alarmists' arguments to curb human emissions of CO2. It's okay to fund alternative energy because it will provide good clean jobs, and "More Stimulus Is Good for the Economy?" Oh really, more stimulus is good for the economy? Oh please don't tell me you are a self-proclaimed Krugmanomics Theologian? I know our socialist leaders want us to believe that they can save the economy by printing money and defacing further our currency but, I'd like to point to Venezuela, Zimbabwe, Bolivia, Spain, Portugal, Italy, and our favorite and most recent Greek Tragedy - it doesn't work. Socialism is a dead end. You cannot borrow into oblivion, print money on toilet paper and expect it not to eventually hit the proverbial fan. And to that end I am no fan of socialism, nor should alarmists be its mouthpiece. Further, most of the stimulus for alternative energy of the Obama Administration resulted in very few permanent jobs and lots of bankruptcies.



Global Warming Data A Miss - Garbage In, Garbage Out

Mon, 08 Aug 2016 06:44:46 -0500

Do you believe in Global Warming? The reason I ask, is that I definitely don't - at least I don't believe in the official definition (Mankind's CO2 causing catastrophic warming of the planet). Indeed, I do not believe that CO2 emissions from mankind have much to do with climate variation of temperatures, this can statistically and mathematically be proven - I would be correct to state so, thus I do. Human caused CO2 is inconsequential.



Does Human CO2 Emissions Cause Natural Disasters?

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 06:37:56 -0500

We are told that every time there is a natural disaster be it a Hurricane, Typhoon, Tornado, Flood, Drought, or Wildfire that it was caused by Global Warming Theory - a theory which states that human emissions of CO2 is causing irreversible and catastrophic warming of our planet (Hell on Earth). But, when we look at the Farmer's Almanac, the weather patterns, rains, and winds, all about average out.



Look Who Is For the Global Warming Agenda Now?

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 06:34:46 -0500

It is interesting how academia, politics, and science have been hijacked by the new religion of Global Warming Theory (remember it is only a theory - never proven). If you go against or disagree with the THEORY, you might be called ignorant, stupid, a racist, a neocon, or any number of things. Often people just think you are evil for suggesting we do nothing since they are certain we are killing the planet. Not long ago, I had to stop someone from calling me names in a think tank internet forum, I said "Hey wait one minute, who on Earth are you calling Stupid? WTH is that about?"



Global Warming Is Caused By Man, Nature Would Never Do Such a Thing

Fri, 05 Aug 2016 06:34:23 -0500

Global Warming Theory (AGW) purports that mankind's CO2 emissions are causing catastrophic warming of the planet, and since humans are doing this, the IPCC says humans need to stop their CO2 emissions immediately and stop the abundance derived from Capitalism because it is too efficient and causes degradation of our planet. But does this theory hold water since the Earth is in a warming trend already and has been for 10,000 years and in the last 180-years it's thought that the average temperature has moved upward maybe .8 degrees? Is mankind really at fault and can we really stop a warming trend of our entire planet by killing jobs and economies and throwing the world into the regression of global socialism?



Paper Bags, Your Eco-Friendly Companion

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 15:42:49 -0500

Much has been debated about the advantages of using paper bags over their sturdy companion - plastic bags. Although it still remains a matter of dispute and will continue to be, the question that lingers on is - Are we depleting the mother nature of its resources much faster than we are supposed to?



Man Has Spent the Planet on Which We All Depend for Life

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 07:18:02 -0500

Not many want to hear about the horror of money as they depend on it for their lifestyle and to survive in a world run by economic enterprise and wealth creation. That's why my message is hard to take when compared to that of the religious institutions that state that money is good. This contrast is the result of the Spirit of the Universe versus man's ideas and inventions.



Who Owns the Rain Water? The Answer May Surprise You

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 07:33:46 -0500

Out here in California we are still in a drought situation, especially Southern California. The 2016 El Nino did great for Northern CA, but not much for sunny Southern Cal. Still even with the Northern CA lakes and reservoirs back up to acceptable (not optimal) levels much of the rain water ran off and did not help. Does that mean we need more reservoirs, dams and catch basins? Why can't people just collect water from their own property when it rains and use that to water their yard later? Well, in some places it is not even permissible - aka unlawful to do so - crazy, yes, so let's talk.



Bring the Change You Want to See!

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 10:02:49 -0500

Change does not stop at changing the government, it begins there. Only when each and every citizen takes up the cause considering his role to be an imperative one in changing the face of the nation, only then will the inaction will change to action.



Why Are Humans Trying To Combat Climate Change In The First Place?

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 06:45:15 -0500

With regards to Global Warming (Definition means; humankind's CO2 output is causing catastrophic warming of our planet) and the re-branded Climate Change (a silly name for an obvious characteristic of our Earth's atmosphere - aka - change is the only constant) we need to be serious about just how much increase human CO2 is really causing our continued 10,000 year warming trend. The reality is; not much. And even if we stop all fossil fuel burning it won't amount to much of any overall change anyway.



Climate Change Alarmists Using False Logic To Silence Reason Are Shooting Humanity In The Foot

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 06:39:20 -0500

Trust me when I tell you that you aren't going to change your 'carbon foot-print' much during this lifetime, your foot is made up of about 17% carbon, so unless you get a plastic prosthesis you will continue to make a carbon foot-print for the rest of your life. Yes, it makes sense to start such a serious article with a joke, merely so you can see how utterly absurd the Climate Change Alarmism really is. Now the IPCC is saying that Capitalism is causing too much abundance and thus too much pollution, but if the global socialists want to get rid of capitalism where are they going to get the money to fund their global warming agenda?



Why Are You Skeptical About Global Warming?

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 06:37:58 -0500

How can any scientist state emphatically that Global Warming (Definition: Mankind's CO2 is causing the planet to heat up and the end result will be catastrophic - IPCC, International Panel on Climate Change) is real? No real-scientist can say that for a fact, because we have no idea. As a non-scientist, I shouldn't have to be the one to point out the fallacy of logic here. However, this issue has grown wings of the most political, religious and false moral idealism - ditching any sense of reason or scientific philosophy. It isn't about science at all anymore - it is about money flow, control and power. Let's talk.



Electronic Waste - Why Is It Dangerous?

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 09:22:24 -0500

This type of waste has become a very serious concern to environmentalists. The reason is because of a growing number of various electronic items that are being discarded in our landfills every year. Unfortunately, there are many consumers that are not aware that electrics such as cell phones and computers do actually contain toxins that can damage the environment by leaching out into the soil of the landfill.



What Is the Emergency?

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 07:34:36 -0500

Rarely does a dream have such an impact on me than the one still on my mind after waking up this morning. It involved my neighbour asking me "what is the emergency?" Immediately my response was "water" as the potential lack of it in coming years is all too apparent.



Can We Continue to 'Grow' Our Way to Prosperity?

Mon, 01 Aug 2016 07:31:22 -0500

The current economic paradigm we are all immersed in, is that the only way to achieve prosperity is through economic growth or the increase of gross domestic product (GDP) in each country continuing on into the future in an indefinite upward spiral. This has worked pretty well for the last 150 years. Modern economics operates on the basis that limitless economic growth is the goal.



Environmentally Friendly Packaging Ideas

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 08:48:12 -0500

It's time we began reducing our carbon print and take responsibility towards saving our Mother Earth. Resorting to eco-friendly packaging ideas, we can take our first step towards conserving our environment. In the not-so-distant past, when plastics weren't around and technology wasn't that advanced, simple people used simple means for packaging.



Environmental Awareness in the World of Industry

The Huge Cost of Global Warming

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 15:44:46 -0500

With floods, fires, devastating winds, and damaged crops all in the mix people are hurting. Homes are washed away or burned to the ground, owners are killed, and many houses tether on the edge of newly formed cliffs. Animals are caught in raging waters and now unseasonably high temperatures are having their own effect as insects hatch in the middle of winter and plants that would normally show up in spring are already emerging from the ground.



Water, None To Drink And None To Spare

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 10:53:21 -0500

Today, as the two party political conventions draws center stage of the news coverage where too many are caught up in all the hype are always forgetting the undercurrent of economic uncertainty that exists in not only the United States but all across the world. We here in the United States have always taken for granted that there would be enough fresh water for us to brew our coffee and brush our teeth in the morning. But, sadly that is not the case in too many areas all across this nation.
