    Reject All Energy Subsidies, Not Just the Ones for Fossil Fuels

    For a country that is still heavily dependent on coal power, news of a more efficient (read: lower-carbon-emitting) coal plant should be greeted with roaring applause from the environmental community.

    Obama’s Oil Spill Speech Overreaches on Cap and Trade, Cancelled Drilling

    A little over a month into the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the American public wants answers– from the Obama administration, from Congress and from BP. While there are still many more questions than currently available answers, President Obama answered a few and dodged others in his speech today. He … More

    President Obama's Memorial Day Vacation

    This weekend, President Obama will skip Memorial Day services at Arlington National Cemetery, and instead he will take his family to Chicago for rest and relaxation. The gesture has rankled many on the right and caused the left to swing into full ‘defend Obama’ mode. However, the fact remains that … More

    Obama vs. the iPad

    President Obama’s disdain for new media has become so consistent that it is hard to dismiss as mere posturing.
