“Sure we have a carbon footprint. We just need to be proud and grateful that it happens to be a size 18 boot-print rather than being ashamed of it.”
But I want to talk about the biggest delusion of our day – the delusional idea that going green will benefit our lives. …..
It’s your life…..don’t let them steal it.
Most people are probably tired of reading or hearing anything more on my personal crusade, the global warming subject, but I ask, …..consider in what way is it important to you.
Most of the Islamic lead atrocities have occurred since Iran’s religious leader called for the death of ‘Satanic Verses’ author Salman Rushdie. They fear our free speech, not our retaliatory defence. If the Muslin world valued life they would stop brutalizing and killing their own people. Hence, brutality does not bother them, only our criticism is intolerable.
……. Only human beings can be programed to destroy the very thing that makes life possible – access to a low cost, abundant energy supply.
…….how much further down this road, taxing one to provide service to another, will we go before we open our eyes and our minds to reality. Are we going to go over the debt cliff before we stop? Are we going to tolerate a state that subverts all law in its zeal to provide all things to all people? Are we going to ignore the lessons of history and destroy a once affluent society,…….
….. If we do become poor, we should know that it’s because we’ve allowed misinformation to chain us – to stop our productive actions with a fraudulent belief…….
True inventions are really mythological constructions. Witches, ghosts and perpetual motion machines fall into that category with the internet finally giving substance to one invention, trolls.
So if you are still determined to turn out your lights, I ask that you not be a hypocrite. Do it for a month or more and then…..
In my pursuit of exploring the history of Barrak Obama and how he came to such influence I followed a lead to Bill Ayer and found this on his web site….. The end of an empire is messy at best And this empire is ending Like all the rest Like the Spanish Armada adrift on […]
…. They have morally elevated a perceived benevolent natural world over mankind’s developed world.The fight is not going to be won by an economic argument, for it is the moral right to support our lives in the only way possible, that is being vilified as being evil.
The Editor: I was disappointed by the October 26th editorial. You deign it appropriate to end with two unsubstantiated paragraphs making claims of impending doom. That we are running out of resources and our society’s energy use is destroying this planet simply perpetuates the two entrenched misconception. I ask, what has happened to that tenant […]
The Editor: The avalanche is no longer stoppable. The Copenhagen treaty has been publicly exposed for what it is, a monumental new level of taxation /welfare scheme with opportunistic leeches draped all over it. Notably, the citizens of Australian can truly take pride in their politicians. A number of them resigned, rather than go along […]
The Editor: At this time I have no idea of how successful the ‘International day of Climate Action’ event that took place this Saturday was but my hope is that it flopped. That rally is symptomatic of the new “green religion” – unthinking adulation for a new level of government control of our lives. The […]
The Editor: It remains a hallmark of green proponents to discredit dissenters rather than to address the real questions raised by the dissenter. I will make no attempt to address Dan Schubart’s unsubstantiated claims of ‘big tobacco’ bias. It is up to him to provide support for those smears. The objection that ‘earth’s temperature are […]
The Editor: I believe there is far to little criticism of the environmental movement carried in the AV Times. Your writers provide to much adulation at the alter of the green church and the paper doesn’t stray much from that one-sided opinion. You begin with replacement of the Kyoto agreement being stymied, by the Chinese […]
As I looked once more at the images of those flaming buildings, I thought back to the day of that ignoble event. I relived my thoughts and feelings at the time, going to work on the west coast and hearing that a plane had struck one of the World Trade Center buildings. The incredulous voices […]
This LTE was sent to the Victoria Times Colonist shortly after 9/11happened, something to hold in mind when asked by President Obama to make 9/11 the day of public service. Sirs: On September 11th 2001, some 3500 of our fellow citizens started their day the same way we did, harboring no grudge toward others and […]
Individual rights -when ideas matter. The origin – It all starts when the idea that we are created or born without sin, obligation, duty etc. become widespread in a culture. the view that equality is the rule, that none can be held to be more than any other, that a covenant of debt can not […]
That said, money is a unique thing in that money is not a prime pursuit. We all work for what money can do, be to acquire basics like food and shelter or ski trips or the thrill of overcoming an obstacle such as going into space or building a bridge.
