Gov’t subsidized biofuels in Western countries responsible for rising food prices

    Guardian.co.uk: This massively increased demand from biofuel is largely determined by the very large subsidies provided in many western countries, which have, ironically, been increasing their subsidisation of biofuel at the same time that they have reduced subsidies on food cultivation. Aside from a few producers, such as Brazil and Cuba, biofuel production in most locations would be completely unviable without these large subsidies.

Renewable Energy Mandate Will Wreak Havoc on California’s Economy

    NCPA Policy Digest: Last month, California’s new governor Jerry Brown signed his first major piece of legislation: a bill that requires the state’s utilities to get 33 percent of their electricity from renewable sources by 2020. Before signing the bill, Brown claimed that the measure “is about California leading the country.” But the governor’s political rhetoric ignores the higher costs that the mandate will place on California’s residents and entrepreneurs, says Robert Bryce, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute.

Texas May Face Electricity Shortages under New EPA Rules

    NCPA Policy Digest: Texas is now the nation’s leading industrial and manufacturing state. Thus, the state will be disproportionately impacted by the recent Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) greenhouse gas (GHG) regulation and the many other major rules to take effect in the next three years. Indeed, the rules on track to go into effect in the next three years could cost more than $1 trillion, result in hundreds of thousands of jobs lost and significantly impair electric reliability, says Kathleen Hertnett White, director of the Armstrong Center for Energy and Environment . . .

Senate vote may end Obama’s climate change ambitions

AB 32: California ‘Cap And Trade’ Program Suspended By Judge

    Huffington Post: “San Francisco Superior Court Judge Ernest Goldsmith ruled Friday that state air quality regulators failed to properly consider alternatives to their so-called cap-and-trade program, a key piece of California’s landmark global warming law, AB 32. Goldsmith ruled that the failure to consider alternatives violated state environmental law, so the California Air Resources Board must conduct further review before implementing the plan.”

How Washington Ruined Your Washing Machine: The top-loading washer continues to disappear, thanks to the usual nanny state suspects.

    Wall Street Journal: In 1996, top-loaders were pretty much the only type of washer around, and they were uniformly high quality. When Consumer Reports tested 18 models, 13 were “excellent” and five were “very good.” By 2007, though, not one was excellent and seven out of 21 were “fair” or “poor.” This month came the death knell: Consumer Reports simply dismissed all conventional top-loaders as “often mediocre or worse.” How’s that for progress?  The culprit is the federal government’s obsession with energy efficiency.

    Michelle Malkin writes at Townhall: The second deepwater drilling ban (which oil spill czar Michael Bromwich admitted was “roughly congruent with the original moratorium”) was “lifted” in October, but still no permits were issued. This is because Team Obama’s eco-radicals never intend to approve them.

    Townhall: “The EPA can only regulate interstate commerce, Howell explains. If coal is produced in West Virginia and burned in West Virginia, it shouldn’t be under the EPA’s jurisdiction. This doesn’t mean that environmental standards won’t be adhered to. It simply means that state agencies can streamline and prioritize enforcement instead of it being handled by a centralized bureaucracy.”

In one paper Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, said the only way to reduce global emissions enough, while allowing the poor nations to continue to grow, is to halt economic growth in the rich world over the next twenty years.”

Jindal: An American solution for energy independence

    Bobby Jindal writing at Townhall: “The problem is that many Washington decision makers are either seriously misinformed or willfully ignorant about energy. Republicans seem instinctively to oppose cultivating energy sources favored by the environmental movement, such as solar and wind power. Likewise, Democrats often stridently oppose the expansion of traditional energy sources such as oil, coal, and nuclear power. Here’s an idea: how about we do it all? That’s not a Republican or Democrat solution. That’s an American solution.”

Contraceptives are polluting women’s bodies and the environment, but who cares?

    Mercator Net: “[T]here are tell-tale signs that a particular type of pollutant, the endocrine disruptor, is wreaking havoc on our ecosystems. And as the world’s rivers are in a crisis of ominous proportions, we are witnessing the alarming effects wrought by estrogenic substances on aquatic life. Feminized male fish that lay eggs and/or have lost their reproductive abilities have been found near waste water effluent areas . . . why are environmental crusaders hounding plastic manufacturers and the canned foods industry while ignoring the most obvious culprit: pharmaceuticals in our water supply? Not just what is dumped by manufacturers or consumers, but more importantly, what is flushed down the toilet after human consumption.”

California’s destructive green jobs lobby

    George Gilder writing in the Wall Street Journal: “The massive vote against repeal of the California law—62% to 38%—supports an economy-crushing drive to suppress CO2 emissions from natural gas and everything else . . . Their economic model sees new wealth emerge from jobs dismantling the existing energy economy and replacing it with a medieval system of windmills and solar collectors. By this logic we could all get rich by razing the existing housing plant and replacing it with new-fangled tents.”
