There's been a recent surge of stories about conservatives and climate change in the mainstream media. But oddly, none of them tell voters what they most need to know on the subject. It's time for a primer.
In a speech last week, the president called on Congress to renew wind-industry tax credits, but neglected to mention “climate change” or “greenhouse gases” or even “pollution.”
In 2009, world leaders promised to gradually phase out fossil fuel subsidies. It's time to give them a push in the right direction as the Rio Earth Summit approaches.
The Senate Armed Services Committee has voted to prevent the military from pursuing biofuels initiatives. So much for energy security and patriotism.
The GOP wants to block the military's use of cleaner fuels and push use of dirtier fuels. "Supporting the troops" apparently ends where Big Oil contributions begin.
Mitt Romney promises to revoke federal support for the wind industry. That might not go over well in swing states like Iowa, where the booming wind sector has wide, bipartisan support.
We can't afford to give away more than $110 billion to the oil, gas, and coal industries over the next decade. That's why I've introduced the End Polluter Welfare Act.
To understand the promise of renewable energy for the U.S. military, start as far from D.C. as possible -- say, with a company of Marines in Afghanistan.
The feds just sold 400 million tons of mineable coal at bargain-basement prices to a company that's now going to strip-mine public land and screw the climate.
