Three years ago, Newt Gingrich shared a love seat with Nancy Pelosi demanding the government take action on climate change. Now he wants to eliminate the EPA.
An Australian talk show host interviews climate change denier and right-wing loon Lord Monckton as if he’s really Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest comedic creation.
WASHINGTON — Animals across the world are fleeing global warming by heading north much faster than they were less than a decade ago, a new study says. About 2,000 species examined are moving away from the equator at an average rate of more than 15 feet per day, about a mile per year, according to … Continue reading Explain this, Rick Perry
Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman better stop sounding reasonable if he wants to win over the Tea Party crowd. Can you talk a little bit about how you came to favor civil unions for gay couples? I’ve always been in favor of traditional marriage and thinking that you open Pandora’s Box when you start to … Continue reading How not to win the GOP nomination
What’s the difference between windbag Al Gore getting rich off the green movement and J.R. Cheney making millions from Halliburton? To suggest that Gore is running some sort of carbon-neutral Ponzi scheme is to believe in elaborate conspiracy theories, so please don’t waste our time.
Talk about the politics of fear — Al Gore’s Armageddon speech yesterday served no purpose but to remind people what they don’t like about Al Gore.

Jeff Lewis (R-White), chairman of the House Energy, Utilities and Telecommunications Committee that held the hearing. “There is alternative … Continue reading The most backward state in Dixie?

Mayer appeared at last weekend’s Live Earth festival and, as he wrote on his blog, the former Atlantan was geared for … Continue reading John Mayer: changing the world one uninspiring guitar riff at a time
“I’ve always been against the idea of rock stars lecturing people as if they know something the rest of us don’t – it looks arrogant. “It’s not as if they have a private source of information. To state the obvious as if you are the only person that knows it is intellectually weak.” –Pet Shop … Continue reading What have we done to deserve them?
