I know people need to keep their jobs–but this is certainly a case of misdirected hostility…
An archive of my Big Coal cartoons. The pen is mightier than the sword (but probably not as mighty as the multi-billion dollar coal industry…).
Why did George Bush classify the spy satellite images of Barrow Alaska? What is making the ice up there melt? Why did Obama declassify these images? ENN (Earth Nightly News) has the story…
When it comes to green spending the Right is wrong about “pork”.
902 mayors recently signed the Climate Protection Agreement–a pledge to meet the standards set by the Kyoto Protocol. Makes ya wonder, how many didn’t… and why not?
Welcome to the no spin zone… The future of renewable energy does not bode well with a candidate who was absent for the eight key votes to extend renewable energy tax credits.
With just about every report linking the increase in extreme weather to global warming, it was quite a coincidence that four tornadoes touched down near Denver on Sunday. With the Democratic National Convention beginning there on Monday, it seemed like an attempt by Mother Nature to remind the Democrats to treat climate change with the attention it deserves.

In a recent Grist interview with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi filmed after Al Gore’s speech to move to 100% renewable energy in the next ten years, Pelosi states the environmental impact of supporting Obama over McCain.
When you spend two terms refuting facts from the world’s top scientists and environmentalists and allow the oil industry to call all the shots in regards to the nation’s energy plan you end up with horrible solutions to huge problems…
A vague emissions reduction goal was set–to be reached in 42 years, and without a baseline from which to begin. Seems to me the powers that be are placating the masses as they refuse to take the necessary measures to promote conservation, clean energy, etc.
Sorry Mother Nature…
All of us at GO Media wish a happy Independence Day to our US readers! Here’s our contribution to the celebration: a reminder that we’re still fighting for independence…
From the administration that brought you: * A weakened Clean Air Act * A weakened Clean Water Act * A weakened dollar * An unjust war * An increase in logging contracts * Strained international relations * The border fence *And much, much (MUCH), more… Now brings you: *A solution to floods and fires
