In the Pipeline: 5/3/13

These are the people on the other side. Watts Up With That (5/2/13) reports: “From the Fahrenheit 451 department comes this indictment of California’s higher education’s “tolerance” for opposing views. When I first got the tip on this, I thought to myself “nobody can be this stupid to photograph themselves doing this” but, here they are, right from the San Jose State University Meteorology Department web page:”


So, if someone lies to you, and they know they lied, that would make them a . . . Washington Post (5/2/13) reports: “Readers should always be skeptical when political ads attach a particular meaning to a congressional vote. In this case, the Obama group has twisted the meaning of a relatively minor amendment — which was clearly intended to become fodder for future campaign ads… There’s little evidence that a vote against this amendment meant that a lawmaker was affirming that climate change was a “hoax.” There are clearly lawmakers who voted against the amendment who believe that human activity contributes in some way to climate change — and the underlying bill actually states that there is “established scientific concern” that climate change exists.”

We worry that the Republic is doomed when “profits” are confused with “legalized theft”. E&ENews (5/2/13) reports: “The nation’s largest biodiesel company posted its strongest first quarter ever on the heels of the retroactive reinstatement of a key tax credit and the incentives provided by the renewable fuel standard.”

Murkowski strikes again. Huffington Post (4/25/13) reports: “Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, the ranking Republican on the Senate energy committee, has acknowledged climate change is ‘real’ and ‘we need to fight it.’… Following her keynote speech at the Bloomberg New Energy conference in New York City, Murkowski discussed her views on climate change with Fortune’s Brian Dumaine. ‘It doesn’t make sense to argue about how much global warming is caused by man — whether it’s 5 percent or 50 percent. The best approach is to have a no-regrets policy,’ she said Tuesday.”

We’ll throw AEA’s hat in the ring for this horse at the Derby. Fuel Fix(4/26/13) reports: “‘Ken and I kind of consider this horse, named Frac Daddy with all the fracking going on, as a tribute to the oilfield workers of America,’ Stewart said told the paper… The men talk about their history with horse racing, energy and this horse in the story.”
