Drill Here, Drill Now
Every time I see that climate change-related television commercial with Nancy Pelosi and Newt Gingrich on a love seat–I haven’t seen the ad in a while, perhaps because it may have run afoul of campaign finance reform laws–it makes me cringe. Newt, however, may be on the road to redeeming himself. He’s got a petition going (SIGN IT!!) which acknowledges the need to drill for our own resources, and acknowledges many of the obstacles created by our own government.

Confessions of a Global Warming Agnostic

Charles Krauthammer is a genius. I agree wholeheartedly that sweeping legislative, social and economic changes should not be borne from pure speculation. Of course I don’t think we should take this planet for granted–I think those people advocating “Carbon Belch Day” should try to elevate the discussion, and their idea does nothing of the sort–but we should be careful and tread lightly in ALL ways. Socialism has been replaced with this radical activism, all pushing toward the same goals. In Krauthammer’s words: “Environmentalists are Gaia’s priests, instructing us in her proper service and casting out those who refuse to genuflect. (See Newsweek above.) And having proclaimed the ultimate commandment — carbon chastity — they are preparing the supporting canonical legislation that will tell you how much you can travel, what kind of light you will read by, and at what temperature you may set your bedroom thermostat.”
