There are a number of alternative energy articles on our “oil” site (http://skeptically.org/oil/index.html), including Scientific American’s article on how use solar to supply over 50% of our energy needs, recent energy breakthroughs also from Scientific American, and one on how to get twice as much energy out of fossil fuel (European approach).

 

 

Bush’s (neocon’s) view of the environment is to permit big business to roll back laws which effect profits.  The latest move comes with the new budget which makes necessary the closing of the EPA libraries.  They closing of the data banks in 06 will cripple legal actions against violators.  Moreover, their plans include the laying off of staff; their work is to be replaced by contracts given to the very violators that the EPA investigates.   

 

Skeptics see both sides of issues, and thus often take a middle path.  There is much that is wrong with our political/economic system’s environmental record, and there are many instances where environmental organizations have wanted changes that are clearly not justified by the public weal.

The questions is not “can they reason?” nor “can they talk?” but rather, “can they suffer?”

Jeremy Bentham

 

It isn’t that meat is evil, or that there are cosmic tears for the carnage of the meat farms, or that meat is particularly harmful to health, but rather that a sentient being would recognizes the relationship between the good-life (the concept thereof in Greek philosophy) would eat at most very, very little higher-animal flesh.   JK vacillates between no meats and very little.

Corporate pig farm.   By eating them you are supporting this!

 

 

                                 A much different government, for those who pay the piper call the tunes.  The alliance with business has become more blatant as the awareness of the common people has shifted in their direction.  Business is about profits, and the environmental laws cost money.

Neoliberals have coop democracy, and at the head of this is the financial community.  Don’t be fooled by the rhetoric, the system is about profits.  It aint the words or legislation, but actions which reveals the shadow government.  As Aristotle observed:  “A democracy exists whenever those who are free and poor are in sovereign control of the government:  an oligarchy when the control lies in the hands of the rich and better born.”

The greatest environmental hazard is the drugs we take, followed by the foods and liquids we consume, and then the air we breath.  For a site dedicated to setting the drug record staight go to http://healthfully.org/rc/index.html -- also developed by California Skeptics.  Remember not to trust the media of the corporate elite.
