Why Occupy Wall St When Government Debt Is The Problem?

National governments in Europe and North America have spent money that they don't have. They are creating debt by over-spending. If you or I over-spend we end up with bank loans & credit card debt. Government debt isn't quite so easy to categorize but the consequences for tax-payers are similar to those our families would face: there's fewer goodies, less to go around, everyone has to work harder & gets less from it.
The people of Greece lived it up on a 4 day work week with free government-everything but they're paying the price now. They are complaining bitterly about the harsh cutbacks but the alternative is bankruptcy. The whole European Economic Community is in trouble & it seems like we in Canada & the U.S. are in a hurry to charge down the same blind alley.
False environmentalism is one of the biggest cash drains & yields no real environmental benefits. Meanwhile people are out of work (a situation that will get much worse as gov't debt grows), jails are filling up as crime rises, education & health care suffer, & people in real need are left to fend for themselves so we can build more windmills!

Careful What You Wish For, You Might Get It: Enviros Don't Think About The Consequences of Their Actions

The war is on. You, the youth of today, will be the victims of this left-wing political pseudoscience. Think about it,where would you be without fossil fuels? Seriously, do you want to live without electricity? Or pay 10 times more for home heating? The financial crash that's coming will stun you beyond belief. Time to get serious & let your politicians & newspeople know that you want the nonsense stopped!

Does Shale Gas Development Contaminate Fresh Water?

Some groups are concerned about development of the vast shale gas resources in North America.  I believe that the fear of contaminating fresh water aquifers through production of the shale gas is unfounded. That said, it is certainly up to each concerned person to seek the truth. Let the facts speak for themselves. To the best of my knowledge no cross contamination has ever occurred, but I don't know everything.
We need to remember that risk is a part of life. If our parents & grandparents had never taken a risk we wouldn't have any of the things that have improved our standard of living to a point undreamt of only a few short years ago, things we take for granted. There is risk associated with the mining of coal, production of electricity, and oil & gas; but where would we be without them? Is the risk of developing shale gas resources greater than the risk of relying on foreign energy supplies? Would we rather suffer the pain of giving up our conventional energy supplies or take the risk of developing them?
To answer these questions we must understand the risk, and that's where these issues usually stall. Fanatics & alarmists jump up & down & shout slogans & don the noble mantle of "protecting the environment", but that is not helpful. A clear headed objective review of the facts is necessary to establish the true risk. What might happen? What would be the consequences if it did? That is what is called for in this issue. I believe that the risk of cross contamination is very low, but let the facts speak for themselves.

Windmills, A Religious Icon?

"These static displays have nothing to do with good economics, jobs, or saving the planet and other such nonsense. They are the follies and monuments of the green religion. The ancient world had its towering statues to the emperors and their gods; the medieval world had its shrines and statues to saints and the Virgin Mary, as well as the most prominent spires that money could buy. The communists have their huge statues and ostentations promoting their cult. These useless wind monstrosities are the necessary images that the proponents of green cult need to make them and others believe that their gods and values are the dominant ones, and making the cult conspicuous. Like the idols of old, they are utterly useless in themselves but keep worshippers captive to an ideology. Hasten the day when our countrymen will wake up and see how they have been fooled and tear these things down, and destroy the foul cult that deluded them." A British Blogger
This was written about the windmill farms cropping up in the U.K. at taxpayer expense, but it's every bit as true here in North America.
