Master Resource: Climate Desperadoes – The Real ‘Deniers’ (part 1)

Paul Driessen — September 23, 2013 “The real climate change ‘deniers’ are the alarmists who deny that natural forces still dominate weather and climate events, and refuse to acknowledge that thousands of scientists do not agree with IPCC proclamations and prescriptions.” The old saws of climate alarmism getting increasingly desperate and intolerant in the face of contrary […]

Wind Energy Gets Away With Murder

James Conca — Forbes — September 22, 2013 I’m not sure what all the fuss is about. So Wind Farms kill eagles. It’s not like we don’t kill beautiful endangered animals all the time.

Letter to the Editor — Lethbridge Herald — September 20, 2013 Re: Alberta lagging in wind power generation, Sept. 14. The CanWEA and Dave Mabell try hard to perpetuate the myth that wind electricity is good for Albertans and good for the environment.
