The Greenies have been orgasmic over the purported references to man made climate change in the Pope’s latest encyclical. Without a direct and reliable translation in hand, one can’t be sure what is actually in that document, despite media “interpretations”.
One thing that is almost never mentioned, (and we’re not hearing it this week) is the destructive impact of Family Breakdown on the environment.
When each family splits and
occupies two dwellings instead of one,
runs two furnaces,
runs two air conditioners,
runs two hot water heaters,
buys double sets of household furniture and equipment,
shuttles the kids between parents on planes, trains, buses and automobiles,
generates double paperwork for legal matters and records
“Gaia” (mother earth) is crying out from the double assault.
When moms decide that their babies don’t need a real daddy, and the government will take his place,
the paperwork is monumental, and there is an exponential increase in tree death. Social service workers charge out in their Priuses to rescue the “at risk” children. This is not sustainable.
The Pope and other religious leaders are invited to directly address this topmost assault on the environment. There’s no need to subscribe to the false religion of man made climate change to espouse practical environmental stewardship.
The Covanta Waste to Energy treatment plant in Brooks, Oregon was featured at WillametteLive.com in an 2007 article entitled Burn Baby Burn. Years later we find out that this is exactly what has been going on at this facility, which converts biomedical waste to energy. The original article addressed public concerns about the possible toxic or hazardous effects of incinerating imported medical waste. The possibility of dioxin or mercury contamination of nearby bodies of water occupied the minds of those who objected to this facility.
A present day article reveals that part of the medical waste imported from British Columbia to the Covanta facility, for incineration, is comprised of aborted Canadian babies. This admission comes from the British Columbia Health Ministry, acknowledging that these babies have become part of the electricity supplied by the facility to the residents of Oregon. Specifically, the aborted Canadians are burned, along with other Canadian body parts, in a pair of huge boilers, at a temp of 2000 degrees fahrenheit. The heat transfers to water tubes, creating steam to drive turbines, which in turn generate electricity. Read more at Lifesite News, which notes that Oregon joins the UK in the practice of using the remains of aborted babies to supply energy. RECYCLING!!!
Update: Marion County Chairperson, Sam Brentano is upset at hearing that aborted Canadians are being burned for electricity at the Covanta Facility. There is a plan to suspend burning medical waste while this issue is investigated. Brentano apparently does not want to do anything to “facilitate abortion”.
Chris W. Street returns focus to Obama’s stonewalling on the Keystone pipeline.
Another Canadian train derailment on October 20 made an inferno of 13 railroad tanker cars filled with propane and crude oil.
This follows the train derailment, 3 months ago in Quebec, which took 47 lives and left a disastrous mess.
Railroads are carrying the vast majority of oil out of the booming North Dakota. Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway is enjoying the profits from North Dakota’s Oil transport from the U.S. all the way to refineries in Nova Scotia. Is there a policy connection?
Environmental impact and human lives seem not to be a government priority.
NYC has about 1677 hybrid buses out of a total fleet of 5719 vehicles. Unfortunately the cost of maintaining those hybrid engines is very high, and the five year warranty is running out. The “green” engines have proven unreliable, and the city is can’t afford to pay for replacements.
We’ve got a Wolf Sanctuary nearby, with Rescued Wolves, and a listener decided to post a video of them singing, online. Wouldn’t you know, the vid went viral, and the comments had to be shut down, because the Sanctuary was getting obnoxious mail from environmental whackos and animal ‘lovers’, complaining about the animals being penned up. People who want a cushier habitat for the rescued wolves, don’t complain at the Wolf Creek people, send them yourMONEY.
Click HERE if you want to see and hear those wolves. It’s quite a sound……..
Down on the Pharm we hear songs crazier than this at night, when the coyotes and the dogs all go nutz at once. Maybe there can be a recording of them posted sometime.
This is NOT a parody…… found at Newsbusters. CNN anchor Deb Feyerick really asked if global warming had an influence on the meteor passing nearby to Earth on Feb 15th.
One of the priceless gems: “Talk about something else that’s falling from the sky and that is an asteroid. What’s coming our way? Is this an effect of, perhaps, of global warming or is this just some meteoric occasion?”
It seems that a change in Romanian regulations has banned horses drawn carriages from the roads. This has resulted in wholesale slaughter of horses, and is said to have precipitated fraudulent horse meat distribution throughout Europe.
Now it appears that there may be an added problem. Some of the horse meat might actually be DONKEY!! Is it actual donkeys, or have leftists taken their convictions about recycling to the max?? :-)
The Food Standards Agency of Europe is rejecting the idea of a ban on all meat imports. Their claim is that all the products on sale are safe for human consumption.
Possibly the Harvard graduates at the Republican National Committee are not smart enough to understand that if you shrink the birth rate to below replacement rate, there won’t be enough people to support the elderly, and society will switch to a plan of denying health care and other support in order to conserve resources. On the other hand, it might be that they have the same plan for our elderly, disabled, and very young as the democrats do. The birth rate in 2011 is as low as ever recorded in the U.S. That announcement comes from theCDC’s data for 2011.
During the time leading up to the election, your friendly Pharmer was busy, and had no time for the RNC. She was too busy sending donations to the candidates they threw under the bus, among the myriad other work, domestic and political activities.
Soo, yours truly decided to drop an opinion at their site today. It’s short and sweet.
Mr. Priebus et al,
Social policy is intertwined with fiscal policy inextricably. Much of the reason for the debt crisis, to which the republicans paid lip service, is due to population demographics. It’s a conservative estimate that over a hundred million Americans are NOT here due to the propensity of people for killing their offspring prior to birth. If you were wondering how to fix social security and medicare, please get a clue.
I was practically born a republican, and proudly 1st-voted for Ronald Reagan over Jimmy Carter. The RNC does not want me or my kind in the party. We do not fit the agenda. After the RNC violated Reagan’s 11 commandment by throwing pro-life candidates under the bus for incorrect phraseology, it became clear that it’s time for me to move on. I donated to the candidates whom you tossed out.
I am a blogger, public speaker, and health care professional, I am no longer Republican, and am taking as many people to tea-party with me as I can.
