Junk Science 04-21

I hate ethanol. Burning food is stupid, stupid, stupid. And it ruins my gas mileage, the more ethanol in the gasoline, the less mileage your car gets. It's a fact. Plus, it actually takes more gas to make ethanol than it does to suck it out of the ground. It is an insult to the American people that we are having this waste of resources shoved into our lives in the name of "saving" resources. Stuff and nonsense! Ethanol Subsidies: Big Elmer Strikes Again

Earth Day: Smile, don't shudder From Bjorn Lomborg whom we like - especially in those tight t-shirts of his.

You can try it but the science is too weak for a court of law. Well a real court of real law. The coming tide of international climate lawsuits.

Earth Day Turns 40. Environmentalist pioneers have had it their way for four decades. It's time for a change.
America’s prosperity not only created pollution, but the wealth and institutions of technological innovation that enabled the country to address the problems caused by pollution. The 1960s and 1970s were the heyday of technocratic centralized planning, and so top-down regulatory schemes were preferred by politicians. The success in reducing air and water pollution shows that top-down regulatory schemes can work. However, environmental regulations are costly. The Washington, D.C.-based think tank, Resources for the Future, estimated in 2003 that the United States spent roughly 2 percent of its gross domestic product (GDP) on environmental protection. That’s about $280 billion per year. That figure matches up with one generated by a free-market think tank, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, which estimated in 2009 that environmental regulatory costs came to $236 billion per year.
May I suggest this for a change? How To Annoy A Liberal on Earth Day.

In Honor of Earth Day, Let's Have Some DDT. Like DeLay did during a Congressional Hearing, I'll drink DDT if it means the ban will be lifted and millions of African women and children can be saved by its use.
