Doody Calls

I still remained baffled by this notion that global warming is going to cause untold disasters, but we should be very cautious about nuclear because… there might be an accident? Germany is making the shift away from nuclear… right back to coal. Is this progress?

Most people (including myself) see gasoline prices rising. Karl Smith explains how they could fall. He also explains our influence on global prices and the state of Peak Oil.

As America gets fatter, non-acceptance of fatness is not abating. Maybe we need to also turn our hadred to mice and marmosets. According to David Sirota, we should certainly start hating on men. (Seriously? Instead of being more compassionate towards women?)

People are worried about the environmental impact of oil pipelines. Maybe we should be more worried about the environmental impact of oil trains.

This piece is in Atlantic Cities, which loves to gloat about increasing poverty in the suburbs. If they think really hard about it, they might see a connection here and consider the implications of it.

The Wyoming Senate race has gotten a lot of attention due to Liz Cheney’s decision to enter it. PErhaps more interesting is the ex Neo-Nazi mercenary.
