Maryland Guv: ‘Climate change is not an ideological issue any more than gravity is’
“It is physics, pure and simple…” — from his State-of-the-state speech.
The verdant hills and plains of earth « Samizdata
“Did you know that the Earth is getting greener, quite literally? Satellites are now confirming that the amount of green vegetation on the planet has been increasing for three decades. This will be news to those accustomed to alarming tales about deforestation, over-development and ecosystem destruction.”

- Matt Ridley
Green Weenie of the Week: The Desperate Sierra Club | Power Line
I’ve argued for a long time that environmentalists are the cheap dates (or battered spouses) of the Democratic Party, but even Obama’s shout out to climate change in his inaugural address isn’t satisfying them...The Sierra Club has grandly announced that it is going to start engaging in civil disobedience, because, you know, they’re just like Henry David Thoreau and Martin Luther King.
...I’m guessing Sierra Club membership is down at the moment. Rumor has it that most environmental groups have experienced a significant loss of members and a decline in revenues. There have been lots of layoffs. I’m sure they can all find green jobs somewhere else.
