Observations From the Back Row

By Rich Kozlovich

There are some things that no matter what we see on the news or read in the newspapers simply aren't so. For those who aren't sure at what I mean....let me outline a few.

Those who advocate green issues, lie. The journalists, who promote green issues, lie. The big corporations, who support them in order to cash in on various green schemes, lie. The bureaucrats, who are their cat’s paws, lie. The politicians who write legislation the greenies support, lie. Everything you read in the newspapers, see on the news is a lie. Not necessarily lies of commission, although they are blatantly guilty of that also, but it is mostly lies of omission. All of these lies build up until we are faced with disasters that should have been perfectly predictable to everyone, and they would have been if everyone had been told the truth.

However, here are some things you can be sure are absolutely true. Green is a neo-pagan secular religion and to be green is to be irrational and misanthropic! We really do need to get that!

I will be keeping Steve Milloy's outline of the e-mails of the global warming "scientists" in the Observations From the Back Row posts since he regularly updates that link as new e-mails come out. As you read them ask yourself...does the word "lie" come to mind?

Here are my picks for the day. Enjoy!

Radical feminists seem to assume that men are hostile to women. But what would they say to the fact that most of the women on the Titanic were saved, and most of the men perished -- due to rules written by men and enforced by men on the sinking ship? Thomas Sowell

Climategate 2.0 is here! (Last updated at 12:10 pm on 12-02)
by Steve Milloy More devastating Climategate e-mails were released today. We’ve covered juicy ones in the posts listed below. More on the way. Read ‘em all. They validate EVERYTHING the skeptics have been saying. Viva les sceptiques

In 2008, I wrote a book called "Liberal Fascism." That title came from H.G. Wells, one of the most important socialist writers in the English language. He believed, as did his fellow Fabian socialists, that Western democratic capitalism had outlived its usefulness.

Too late. The US now has abundant domestic supplies, freeing liquified nat gas cargoes onto the international market where they compete with Russian supplies.

It’s hard to keep up with all the disasters plaguing “clean” technology. We’ve highlighted some of them in previous columns, but now find ourselves overwhelmed with bad news for the green-at-any-cost crowd. So periodically we’ll provide a “renewable roundup,” reading and deconstructing the latest developments so you don’t have to.

• Running on Empty: Electric Cars
• Tilting at Windmills: Subsidized Failure
• Dimming Solar Prospects
• Global Warming Burn Out

Senate Republicans yesterday told President Obama to release his partisan stranglehold on the Keystone XL Pipeline project, and backed up their demands with new legislation to force quick action…….The permitting and approval process has dragged on for three years, and TransCanada has already agreed to 57 special conditions imposed by the State Department, said Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.

Ohio Treasurer: Washington Targets Ohio Shale Gas
“Job-killers win, American workers lose.”  Ohio treasurer Josh Mandel writes in the Wall Street Journal:

In the Cleveland Plain Dealer: “Republic Steel to add 450 jobs to Lorain as oil and gas exploration booms.” This story reported Republic Steel’s announcement of new jobs in one of Ohio’s hardest-hit counties, to manufacture products in support of the state’s growing oil and gas industry.  In the Marion Star: “Ohio national forest halts sale of drilling rights.” This story reported the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s decision to suspend the auction of leases for oil and gas drilling on more than 3,000 acres of federal land in the most economically depressed region of Ohio.
