The US Costly Addiction to Plastic; Beijing Bans US Imports of Trash!

Operation Green Fence, a campaign by Chinese customs to strictly enforce laws governing the import of waste, “could be a game changer,” says Doug Kramer, president of Kramer Metals, an international scrap dealer in Los Angeles. “A lot of companies have used China as a dumping ground, getting rid of … substandard scrap and trash,” Mr. Kramer says.

The headlines were recently blaring …Beijing bans US imports of trash! That one my friends, is a very big headline. Bet you didn’t know our biggest export to China is our trash!

Yes, we export more trash than soybeans or wheat. It seems, except for green crusaders, very few people, politicians, or people in the MSM want to acknowledge the silent nightmare that plastic trash and garbage presents.

Oh My God, is Global Warming Causing More Vasectomies?

“I just broke down in tears in boarding area at SFO while on phone with my wife. I’ve never cried because of a science report before.”

To which I want to say, “Really, no R_E_A_L_L_Y?” Well, if the slobbering Mr. Holthaus could put his tissues down long enough, maybe he could take the time to read the entire report.

It seems the real story is buried deep inside the IPCC Report, and no wonder.

Why a Romney Presidency Will Be Better for Jobs & the Environment Than Obama

The constant rhetorical flame throwing on left, riddled with accusations that all conservatives want dirty air, dirty water and to plunder the planet brings nothing but derision and contempt from those who want a better environment tempered with a modicum of practicality. Such is the case of Romney vs Obama and the 2012 election.

Black Rhino Officially Extinct; South African Rhino Kill Rate Up in 2011

It always comes down to cold hard cash, that combined with the cultural heritage excuse. You know, our ancestors did it, so we continue to do it and the consequences to damned because it’s tradition!

Shark finning and killing rhinos for their horns are one in the same hideous unforgivable act. Cutting off shark fins for soup and killing rhinos for their horns to used for ornamental and pseudo medicinal reasons are barbaric acts of cruelty.
