Green Hell

Steve Milloy (junkscience.com) has a new book out... Green Hell: How Environmentalists Plan to Ruin Your Life and What You Can Do to Stop Them (Hardcover). I'm going to buy a copy.


for now though, I think I'll just rant.

I hear incandescent light bulbs are going to be banned.
I've not had a great experience with these energy efficient light bulbs. I have found that they don't last as long as the old fashioned incandescent ones. They come with a seven year guarantee but I can never find the receipt or packaging when I need it... it's been recycled.
I have also heard that if you accidentally break one you have to call in a Hazmat team to clean up the mercury. (he he, when the greens say they will "create jobs," Hazmat companies must rejoice. It's like saying we can create thousands of jobs for newly hired fire fighters by lighting huge piles of tires on fire. Kind of like Obamanomics no?)
I notice they have installed some funny kind of system in the toilets in my apartment. To save water I think.
The only problem now is I have to flush about five times to get the job done. I have found a solution though... I fill up a bucket of water and keep it in the tub to assist the flushing process.... I got the idea when I saw the technique employed in a low carbon footprint country... communist Cuba. (It was in a hut on the beach.... one of the few with an indoor toilet... but no running water. The rest of the neighbours had a much better method of saving water... outhouses built just a few yards into the ocean... just around the bend from the tourist beach.)
They used to have showers at the gym I go to. I don't know where they have gone. They have been replaced by sprinklers. I could take my plants to the gym and water them there I suppose. (but I don't have any plants - honest!)
Will, "I am going to take a sprinkle," make into our lexicon? Or would it be too ambiguous?
As for cleaning the sweat off after a workout well, I guess we can always try spitting up in the air.
Hmmm...  a lot of municipalities impose restrictions on when you can water your lawn... I can't wait until they mandate smart water meters... so you can only take one shower a week.
Did you see that video of that British, "climate change," activist throwing green custard on a U.K. government official?
You know... I am getting the impression that these global warming alarmists are starting to realize that their scam is finally starting to fizzle. Maybe it's just me but I detect a subtle change in their choice of words... from "Global Warming," to "Climate Change." I think they are hedging their bets.
In a few years, no one will hear of global warming any more. It will all be climate change... whether the planet is getting hotter or cooler won't matter, it will still be "man made," of course.  Climate change has been just such a wonderful opportunity for politicians and anti-capitalist activists to expand their power and budgets.
Don't worry,  the words "regulate," "ban,"  "tax," "control," "restrict," "mandate," will still be around. And you can take that to the bank.... you know, where your dollarettes are stored.
...and perhaps even "arrest," "jail," "hang," and "throw custard at," or better, "throw Barack Obama at," (ouch!) might be added.  
MacDonald's will offer a new prize in their Monopoly contest.... a free Burger and enough carbon credits to obtain one!
Once the clueless schmoos who make up the majority of voters have fully absorbed this dogma we'll move on to the next step.... man made weather change. Your little league game got rained out? Blame it on the richest guy in your town...
Of course when we reach that point the richest guy in town will be like the hated Kulak (a well-to-do peasant farmer in Russia who profited from the labor of poor peasants and opposed the Soviet collectivization of the land -- yourdictionary.com)
Our standard of living will have truly tanked.



The Kulak was the rich guy who had two cows. In our future, the rich guy with two cows will be the one who can afford to buy enough carbon credits from Al Gore to pay for the evil cow farts.
The politicians will come up with a new idea then.... tradeable rain credits....
Of course, Al Gore and friends will "offset" their rain guilt by storing water in their indoor swimming pools.

How to Save the Ontario Basic Income Program!Background Leftist Ontario virtue signallers have been freaking out over the Ford government's cancellation of the Basic Income free money project that was cooked up by the Wynne government to build up their voter base. I follow a few of these caring individuals on Twitter to study their self delusions. They've all been afflicted lately with Ford Derangement Syndrome, peacocking their indignation at the cancellation of Wynne's free money giveaway "program." But does the program really have to be cancelled? Of course not. All it would require to be saved is for the virtue signallers, and there are loads of them, from Deb Matthews and Andrea Horwath, to a parade of obscure, Twitter addicts, and their offended fans. The good news is that the program can easily continue on a voluntary basis. The only difference is that the leftists would have to reach into their own pockets to show how committed and compassionate they …
Uber in Hamilton Update: Maria Pearson, Don't Delete This One.Molly A cabbie friend of mine told me that she had recently received a follow-up call from her council rep, Maria Pearson - Ward 10, over a recent licensing issue. After some small talk, the councilor asked my friend, I'll call her Molly, how things were going in the Hamilton taxi business now that Uber had been formally exempted from Hamilton's "old category" of taxi licensing bylaws. Molly told her that things were really bad. Then Molly suggested that if Maria wanted more information on the Uber impact, that she should talk to "Hans." Maria replied, "Hans Wienhold?" Molly: "Yes." Maria: "Oh. I just delete his emails." When I heard this I laughed. First, Maria feigns interest in the plight of Hamilton's cabbies (probably just fishing for a vote, IMHO,) and then, when offered a source of information on the Uber impact, Maria unconsciously intimates th…
Cab Drivers Endure Verbal Abuse Friday, October 6, 2017 A group of rowdy young males approached the taxi stand at about 10:00 P.M. looking for a taxi ride to Guelph Line and Upper Middle Road in Burlington, a distance of 18.2 Km. The spokesman for the group offered the driver $20 for the ride. An 18.2 Km. ride in a taxi would run approximately ($1.80/Km X 18.2 Km + $3.90 =) $36.65 at the non-Uber taxi tariff rate mandated by the City of Hamilton for non-exempt (I.E. non-Uber) taxis. The same ride in an Uber taxi, at non-surge pricing would run ($2.50 + $2.80 + 18.2 Km X $.90/Km) = $21.68. As is so typical of younger Canadians, raised and educated in Ontario's liberal dominated "Me First" culture of entitlement, the rider became indignant and intimidating when the driver refused to match Uber's rate and break the law. The millennial then taunted all of the non-exempt cabbies who were present by announcing he would take a tariff-exempt Uber taxi instead. Some …
