By S. FRED SINGER | Posted Wednesday, February 18, 2009 4:20 PM PT | Investors Business Daily President Obama will be hard put to satisfy his several campaign promises: to restore prosperity and jobs, to conduct a foreign policy backed by a strong economy and to satisfy environmental demands to “save the planet.” His job will be much easier if he listens to independent advice on climate science.

ECOstrive – There is a new consensus on global climate change. Over 31,000 scientists, including over 9,000 with PhDs have signed a petition to reject the Kyoto Protocol and any future climate related treaties. These scientist are experts in their fields and well outnumber the 600 or so “authors” on the IPCC panel.
These 31,000 scientists have peer reviewed this 12-page review article about the human-caused global warming hypothesis that is circulated with the petition.
Bottom line is that these scientists agree that the we are warming. In fact, we are starting to approach the mean temperature prior to the “mini-Ice Age”. They also agree that there is no correlation between the climate cycles and greenhouse gas emissions by humans. Continue reading 31,000 Scientists say Wake Up People!
ECOstrive – Eighteen states filed suite against the EPA on Wednesday to force them to regulate Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions. But the real danger could be Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO). According to the United States Environmental Assessment Center, thousands die each year after inhaling dihydrogen monoxide. It is also a major component in acid rain.
According to DHMO.org, DHMO is a colorless and odorless chemical that kills or maims thousands each year, primarily through accidental inhalation. It has also been revealed to be a causative agent in many environmental exposure incidents, industrial contaminations, automobile accidents, and property damage. The dollar amount losses caused, and the lives impacted, by the DHMO threat are virtually innumerable. Perhaps we should be pressuring the EPA to regulate DHMO as it is very prolific throughout the environment. Maybe not… Continue reading Forget Carbon Dioxide, fight Dihydrogen Monoxide
ECOstrive – After delivering a report to lawmakers last Thursday stating that it will not be rushed into deciding whether to regulate Carbon Dioxide (CO2) as a pollutant related to Global Warming, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was blasted by Rep. Edward Markey, D-MA and Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-CA for not immediately taking action on last year’s Supreme Court ruling ordering that SaveCO2 be regulated by the agency.
Stephen Johnson from the EPA states that such action “could affect many (emission) sources beyond just cars and trucks” and needs to be examined broadly as to other impacts. Sen. Boxer noted that Johnson has had nearly a year to respond to the court but “now, instead of action, we get more foot-dragging” and Rep. Markey said “This is the latest quack from a lame-duck EPA intent on running out the clock … without doing a thing to combat global warming.” They are wrong… Continue reading EPA Blasted for Being Responsible
Anonomyous Post from Old ECOstrive Site.
Gore claims that Himalayan glaciers are shrinking and global warming is to blame. Yet the September 2006 issue of the American Meteorological Society’s Journal of Climate reported, “Glaciers are growing in the Himalayan Mountains, confounding global warming alarmists who recently claimed the glaciers were shrinking and that global warming was to blame.” Continue reading Gorebull warming lies exposed
ECOstrive – Well folks, be prepared to monitor your breathing. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of Massachusetts regarding the question on whether the EPA has to regulate carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions as a “pollutant” in the terms of the Clean Air Act. But humans may be contributing more by breathing than any other source.
Massachusetts contends that global warming is caused by pollutants such as CO2 and that global warming is causing a rise in sea levels, thus causing damage to the state in the form of losing coastal property. Continue reading EPA to Regulate Breathing

An intelligence source, working for a government agency. He’s not a spy, he’s an analyst. He uses computers to crunch numbers and at the end of his work, out pops the truth that was hiding in the original data. Let’s call him “Mann.”
The trouble with Mann is, he has an ideology. He knows what he wants his results to be. And the original numbers aren’t giving him that data. So the agency he works for won’t be able to persuade people to fight the war he wants to fight. Well, that’s not acceptable. Continue reading All for a good cause
ECOstrive – To coin a phrase from a great democratic senator from Georgia, Senator Zell Miller, when talking of what we should arm U.S. Troops with in the war on terrorism; I use his words when talking about Greenpeace on fighting Global Climate Change.
Greenpeace loves to report the problem of global warming and energy. They are against power plants that burn fossil fuels and they are very much against nuclear power. According to their Energy [r]evolution Blueprint, they say that we can get all of our energy from solar, wind and other “renewable” sources and that nuclear power has no place in their blueprint.
Solar, wind and other renewable sources are small contributors to the current electricity supply (see below), or “spit balls” in the terms of this article. There is no denying that these technologies are desirable, and our goal should be to seek their maturity so that they can begin to shoulder the burden of supplying the U.S. energy demand. The problem is that these current technologies cannot make a significant contribution to the U.S. energy demand. Continue reading Fight Global Warming with what? Spit Balls?
