Solar Hot Links- September 20th, 2017

Good Morning! Today I find myself amazed at the fact another Category 5 hurricane is working its way through the Caribbean.  As I’m sure you’ve heard, Hurricane Maria is pounding Puerto Rico with high winds and extreme storm surge this morning.

Solar Hot Links- June 9th

I’m back! I don’t know about you, but it has been a frustrating and worrisome few months witnessing the direction President Donald Trump is steering our great nation. It’s frustrating to see him regurgitate fossil fuel industry lies and misinformation.  And it’s worrisome to see so many good people swallow it all hook, line, and…

The Hypocrisy Of Climate Denial…

As I’ve mentioned before, I was born and raised on a Montana cattle ranch. It should come as no surprise than many of my friends and family from that neck of the woods are quite conservative.

What President Trump Means For The Future Of Energy And Climate…

After a stunning election, the first impulse may be to describe the future in apocalyptic phrases. Game over for the climate! Game over for NATO! Game over…

Rocky Mountain Power Goes For The Knockout…

This has been a particularly lousy week… I started it off by trying to accept the reality that America chose a flamboyant orange science denier for the highest office in the land.  If President elect Donald Trump actually does the things he said he would do in his campaign, he will cause great harm to the environment…

Planet Earth Is The Real Loser Of The US Elections

By Farron Cousins of the DeSmogBlog.com: November 9th, 2016 During the U.S. presidential debates, there was not one single question devoted to the topic of climate change. And it appears that the results from the election have only amplified the silence that Americans seem to have on the subject of the environment. In a stunning turn…

Only Liberals Believe In Climate Change? Not So Fast!
