Environment

We have a choice to make: which comes first, the human environment or the non-human environment? So-called environmentalists often sacrifice the human environment to the non-human environment. True progressives judge all environmental issues in terms of the human environment.

Mark Ruffalo: Be an Avenger for Fracking

Dear Mark Ruffalo, As an energy researcher I am disappointed that you are using the media attention over your new Avengers movie to attack “fracking”–the revolutionary technology that uses controlled explosives high-pressure water jets to fracture once-useless rock formations so as to release bountiful oil and natural gas. I have no objection to celebrities getting […]

Creator of FrackNation: “we have seen the devastation that occurs when development is halted”

Ann McElhinney is one of the gutsiest critics of anti-industrialists–self-proclaimed “environmentalists”–around. She is spearheading the upcoming documentary, FrackNation, which aims to educate the public about the incredible technology that is hydraulic fracturing (see our recent piece, “Fracing Amazing,” for more). The Objective Standard blog recently conducted an interview with McElhinney, which is well worth reading. Here’s […]

Climatology Establishment Smears Scientific Critics

Responding to a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed by 16 scientists who reject global warming catastrophism (discussed here), 38 academic climatologists have offered their counterargument, which amounts to 1) disagreeing with the 16 scientists’ factual claims about the climate and 2) claiming that since most of the scientists are not climatologists, their claims are uninformed.

It’s certainly not every day that a documentarian blasts the notion that oil is an “addiction.” Mark Mathis’s SpOILed, coming out in limited release in October, is both a tribute to the role of oil in our […]

My Speech about the Keystone XL Pipeline

This past Wednesday, there was a public hearing on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline (bringing oil from Canadian oil sands to the US) in Austin, TX.
