Fracking, the process of blasting deep rock strata to release methane that can then be pumped to the surface and sold as natural gas, is one of the ugliest innovations the energy industry has come up with. And unlike the ugliness of the Alberta Tar Sands, fracking takes place in pristine rural farmlands of the […]

It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years since the release of Who Killed the Electric Car. And hard to believe how much has turned around in that short time – back then, electric cars were being destroyed, not built. Now, everyone has jumped on the bandwagon. In Revenge of the Electric Car, director Chris […]
It was supposed to be the middle-of-the-road answer to the “global warming sensationalism” of Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth”. But “Skeptical Environmentalist” Bjorn Lomborg’s un-scary climate change documentary, “Cool It”, appears to be anything but sensational. It opened this weekend to the rousing reception of a tree falling in the forest with nobody there. It took […]
Bjorn Lomborg’s documentary, “Cool It”, opens today. Claiming to take a middle ground between climate deniers on the right and fearmongers on the left, it could be a moderate’s dream. Or it could be yet another mishmash of garbled facts and half-baked ideas that doesn’t move the debate forward one iota. And it doesn’t help […]
For years, Bjorn Lomborg was one of the leading climate skeptics. He even authored a book, “The Skeptical Environmentalist: Measuring the Real State of the World“, on the subject. Lomborg has since become a believer in global warming, but he has his own take on it: We’re focusing too much on fear and not enough […]
Wow. Bill Maher weighs in on the debate over offshore drilling, and specifically the issue of whether or not a deepwater offshore drilling ban will be a job-killer.
“You know, maybe your job needs to go when it starts killing things. Maybe this whole mess is a sign that people who work in the oil industry should look into producing something else that’s less immediately harmful… Yes, the oil industry creates jobs. So does the kiddie porn industry.”
The Copenhagen agreement fizzled, but failure to take global action on climate change may have greased the skids for transition from the post-9/11 epoch into a new global Eco Cold War.
President Obama outlines his administration’s economic accomplishments, hurdles it faces, and plans to overcome these hurdles.
Author, activist and eco-crusader Bill McKibben visited the Colbert Report last night to bring attention to the 350 campaign to limit carbon emissions and the October 24 day of action in support of the goal.
Palin’s chain of independent clauses may have sounded a little disjointed to the untrained ear, but not to William Shatner.
Twenty-five workers holed-up in the Vestas facility on the UK’s Isle of Wight for about a week now may have saved their jobs if a proposed deal is agreed upon by both parties – but only if they happen to work in the offshore research division.
While I know the details of climate policy can be a little dry at times, I didn’t know it was quite this sleep-inducing.
U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu visits Jon Stewart at the daily show, and much to the host’s surprise (and unlike other members of the cabinet who’ve visited the show), Chu is alive.
We already know that Fox News’ telepundit Bill O’Reilly believes anthropogenic global warming is real and shouldn’t be ignored. Now we know he’s not a huge fan of a cap-and-trade policy because it would fatten the wallets of Goldman Sachs and Al Gore.
What Ever Happened to the Lawsuit Brought by Weather Channel Founder Against Al Gore over Global Warming?
Coleman made headlines last year with a series of op-eds saying that 30,000 scientists (only 9,000 of whom actually have PhDs) wanted to sue Al Gore over the fraud.
My questions is this: how is that lawsuit coming Mr. Coleman?
