“You Know What? We’re Winning”

After we we speculated Monday night as to the identity of the true author of the Rockefeller-Snowe letter to ExxonMobil, I happened to look at the site-tracking meter which tells me a little bit about who happens drops by NN&V.

We had visitors.

Following the trail back to the origin of one particular visit, I found none other than Environmental Defense was named in the Taranto editorial as one of the organiztions aligned against the global warming “deniers”. They are a determined group. Indeed, their legislative point-person, Melissa Carey has boldly declared, “2007 is the year we need to start making law. “

“The special interests who have tried to prevent global warming action have used scare tactics, warning of huge economic costs. They don’t want Congress to understand that if we fight global warming the smart way – by setting a national cap on pollution and creating market incentives for industry to innovate – we not only cut emissions, but we give businesses the opportunity and flexibility to do it efficiently and at a long-term net cost savings.

“And you know what? We’re winning.”

Sounds a little bit like our letter-writer doesn’t she.

I find it interesting that the same people who are most relieved to hear new Sec-Def Gates say that “we are not winning” in Iraq are so excited about the prospects of claiming victory, and ramming home this legislation, the Climate Stewardship Act. And, although I half-jokingly referred to the religious fervor of the global warming enthusiastists as the “GAS Crowd” (Gaiaist Apopcalyptic Syndrome), it is their arrogance self-righteousness that they must not be questioned which makes me want to push back and question them. And not only their science, but the motives behind their apocalyptic conclusions as well.

Fred Krupp, GAS President, in a website blurb made this comment:

Like other Americans, we reviewed our priorities after the September 11 attacks on the United States. We concluded that our job is to preserve a world worth defending.

Unlike Mr. Krupp and the rest of the GAS Crowd, we also reviewed our priorities after the September 11 attacks on the United States, and concluded that our first job is to preserve life and liberty. Without these, who will be left to preserve the world? In their blind devotion to a cause, Krupp and the GAS Crowd endanger the very world they claim to want to preserve.

Much more eloquently stated by Lord Nigel Lawson, (from The American Thinker)

The irrationality and intolerance of Eco-fundamentalism, says Lawson, regards the “questioning of its mantras” as “a form of blasphemy.” And he concludes with an apocalyptic vision of his own – and one far more devastating in its consequences than Climate Change: “There is no greater threat to the people of this planet than the retreat from reason we see all around us today.”

NowPublic is NowAwesome!

Many of you know what a fan I am of the Citizen Journalism news site “The News is NowPublic”. I’ve posted quite a few articles there, and cross-posted entries from this blog as well.

One of the criticisms of NowPublic has been that the blogging software was on the cumbersome side. I’ve said it, and a number of you have said it also. Well, that has changed. I just logged in to my NP account, and…WOW.

Take a look for yourselves

You’ve heard me say for some time now that “user-driven” news stories now account for over half of the stories that are reported in the daily news cycle. Here is your opportunity to make a difference, and give needed attention to stories and ideas that are drowned out in the digg-driven hype of the left blogosphere, and not only with your words, but also with photos and videos. So, Get Busy, and Spread The Word!

MSNBC: Positive Test for Toxins

When the higher ups at MSNBC find out about this report, someone’s gonna be in trouble.

I’m confident , however, that the Olberman network can find a way to blame this on BushCo.

1851089standard.jpgSARGAT, Iraq, April 4 – Preliminary tests conducted by indicate that the deadly toxins ricin and botulinum were present on two items found at a camp in a remote mountain region of northern Iraq allegedly used as a terrorist training center by Islamic militants with ties to the al-Qaida terrorist network. The field tests used by are only a first step in the evidentiary process and are typically followed by more precise laboratory testing that has not conducted. U.S. intelligence agents were conducting their own tests in the same area and had not yet released their results, according to officials in northern Iraq.


Whew, for a minute there I was worried.  But later on in this article, the reporter says, “There is no evidence of Saddam Hussein’s involvement…”
