Obama Chooses Extreme Environmentalism Over Workers

Mitt Romney campaigned in Ohio today and launched an attack on President Obama’s coal policies, telling the audience that the president is waging a “war on coal.” The extreme left-wing environmental agenda is an obvious wedge in the Obama coalition and the president is on the wrong side. The left wing has chosen privileged environmental protestors over working-class jobs in the coal industry... More

Pope Benedict’s environmentalism

Protecting the environment has been a consistent theme throughout Pope Benedict’s papacy. Though I’ve not had the pleasure of reading his latest book on the subject, it’s worth reviewing what he’s already said about being “green.” Too often the debate about environmentalism is hindered by focusing on the politically divisive issue of global warming.

The archbishop threw the Vatican�s weight behind the climate change �consensus�, including that �the scientific evidence for global warming and for h... More

BettNet on statistics showing greenhouse gas pollutions down

More grist for the (hopefully energy-efficient/minimal-waste-producing) mill: “To sum up: Even as population grew, American industry grew, the amount of energy consumed grew, and the amount Americans used their cars grew, greenhouse gas emissions went down. Despite everything that environmental extremists tell us we need to do to ?save the environment? from the ?human-caused? catastrophe of... More

Estrogen could be an environmental hazard

If you haven’t heard about this before, you probably should at some point. Dr. Philip Blosser explains: Widespread use of birth control pills harming the environment, says “Estrogen overload,” California Catholic Daily (April 29, 2007).
