You don't care about me

And why should we when even your parents did not care enough to keep you away from serious harm allowing you to play soldier?

You quit being a "child" the day you picked up a gun and started playing war games. Your age no longer mattered at that point. You wanted to act like a man then, so now you get to continue to play that role. You should consider yourself lucky to be alive, never mind be free to roam as you wish in Canada. Being a "man" sucks don't it.

Welcome to the real world Omar.

This explains a lot of the crap that comes out of PETA. I new they were brain dead. Now there is proof!

EnvironMENTAL Freaks Friday

Everyone that bought a new LCD flat screen monitor and or TV to save money on electricity and to save the planet from the evil CO2 raise your hands. Now go give yourself fifty lashes you earth destroying evironMENTAL nightmare of a person!

Booming demand for flat-screen televisions could have a greater impact on global warming than the world's largest coal-fired power stations, scientists warn.

Let the ranting, raving and banning begin...

I wrote some time ago that Syncrude should have immediately sat down and wrote out a cheque for a million dollars and fire it off to Ducks Unlimited after the disaster at one of its tailing ponds that killed 500 ducks. Now it looks more and more like they will indeed be writing a million dollar cheque. Unfortunately it will be made out to the Alberta government instead to pay the fines levied against them.
The decision on charges against the company that operates the pond, Syncrude Canada Ltd., is expected to be made by the end of August, said Stewart.

“The maximum penalty for this under the Environmental Protection and Enhancement Act is a $1-million fine,” he said.

They should have taken my advice. It would have been great PR. This, not so much...

Speaking of dead ducks...
CALGARY — Federal Liberal Leader St├ęphane Dion rode into the heart of cowboy country Friday to lasso support for his green plan in a province that snorts at any whiff of the old national energy program. [...]

There is an understatement if I ever heard one...
[...] Mr. Dion's arrival coincided with the start of the Calgary Stampede — the annual 10-day celebration of cowboy culture in the heart of Canada's oil country. His visit raised some eyebrows even before he arrived. One political cartoon in a newspaper showed him on a spit roasting over a fire. “If Westerners are so upset, why have I been invited to so many of their barbecues?” read the caption. [...]

Read the rest here, if you care.

I hate to say "we told you so" but...
Biofuel production boosts food prices by 75%, report suggests
The production of biofuels has driven up food prices 75 per cent, according to an unpublished World Bank report obtained by the Guardian.

In an article published Friday, the British daily cites a confidential report authored by Don Mitchell, a senior economist at the bank. The newspaper suggests the report has not been released so as not to embarrass U.S. President George Bush, whose government had suggested biofuels accounted for a three per cent increase in food prices.

"Without the increase in biofuels, global wheat and maize stocks would not have declined appreciably and price increases due to other factors would have been moderate," the report said, according to the Guardian.

The report also said changing diets in developing countries and a drought in Australia were not significant factors in driving up the price of food — which increased 140 per cent between 2002 and February 2008, according to the report.

Instead, a large-scale push in the U.S. and the European Union (EU) to convert food crops to biofuel has tightened supplies and raised financial speculation, said the report.
[...]

What boggles my brain is that they needed to "study" this to figure it out. It was pretty obvious to anyone with a bit of common sense. Then again, common sense is not very common, especially in the environMENTAList community.

Getting back to Alberta's so called "dirty oil" from the tar sands...
It looks pretty damn clean to me!

If an environMENTAList dies in a tree in the forest, does anyone care?

Here is my advice... Do the exact opposite of what the fear mongering environMENTALists say and you cannot go wrong.

Have a great weekend!

Update:
This just in....

Let me tell you a dirty little secret(s)

Not everyone has jumped on the "anti tar sands" bandwagon. Some people realize you can't put the cart ahead of the horse. Reality is, there is currently NO viable replacement for oil at this time. Someday there will be, but right now it simply does not exist. For those of you who think you are saving the planet by using so called clean electric powered motors, whether they be in your car, lawnmower, or whatever, I ask of you one thing. Where does the electricity come from to power those motors? Chances are pretty good it comes from some dirty coal or gas fired power plant that is increasing its output to accommodate your extra usage. Keep on fooling yourselves...

For those of you who believe hydrogen powered vehicles are the answer, I have more questions. What portion of the upper atmosphere contributes more to so called global warming, CO2 or water vapor? What byproduct does hydrogen power produce? Let me help you out a bit. The answer for both is the same.

If some evil force decided to nuke Canada into oblivion and there by eliminating all of our CO2 contribution to the planet, it would hardly be negligible in the big picture. Yet some people think we should pay a heavy price now, even though we have no alternative to run our vehicles, heat our homes or power our lights. Dion will get your green and you will get the shaft. There is no "shift" here. Dion claims that his policy will be revenue neutral. That may be the case for the government, but it surely won't be for your bank account. His claim that his plan will not effect the price of gasoline is garbage. It puts a price on carbon and gasoline is one of those sources. It may not be directly placed on gas so technically he is not lying but he is seriously trying to pull the wool over your eyes. Wool you will be needing badly come those cold winter months when you are forced to turn down your thermostat even further so you can afford to pay the bills. The price of gas will go up reflecting the added cost of oil production due to Dions green shift plan, don't be fooled.

There is an old adage, "If you got it, it came by truck". I challenge you to name one possession of yours that at some point was not in the back of a truck. Your food, clothing, furniture, appliances, even your dental floss at some point was moved by truck. EVERYTHING is going to cost you more,EVERYTHING. This will be over and above the already steady increases we are seeing now in the market. How much more can we afford? You can only cut back so much before you have to start going without something.

Some people don't want Canada's (read Alberta and Saskatchewans) dirty oil. Good luck with that! Let me know how much more you are paying to have that black gold shipped from the middle east to meet the demand. Meanwhile we will just ship our oil to where it is welcomed. The oil tanker companies will laughing all the way to the bank, while spewing tons of CO2 into the air as they cruise back and forth across our oceans. How ironic!

Lastly, lets see what happens if Alberta actually is forced to play its Wild Card. You think prices are high now? Just you wait and see what will happen if this should come about. I seem to recall someone saying something about some people freezing in the dark way back when. I think that was the "Profit" Ralph was it not? It was a very popular bumper sticker regardless...

Wake up people. Use that brain matter to see that tree in the forest. Let your common sense prevail and don't believe all the crap you are fed on a daily basis by people who simply want to take your money for no other reason than that they think they know how to spend it better than you do. People who have way more money than you I might add...
