Possible to Re-connectOriginally uploaded by shaapay First, a special thanks to shaapay (from Flickr) for letting me use his great photo. I find it interesting that this week there are several environmental “problems” occurring at the same time. Global Warming advocates couldn’t ask for a better set of circumstances this week. As noted in my… Read More

In his article, Stu Ostro seems to suggest that the remaining hurricane season will present numerous storms. The problem is his “evidence” is anecdotal by his own admission. His charts or pictures or diagrams or whatever are quite telling. He suggests that 2008 looks very much like 2005 (which created Katrina and Rita). However, anyone… Read More

I really think this guy has something good to contribute to the energy discussions. For and Okie, he’s pretty intelligent. This guy also uses his money for educatin, as most of the OSU campus has his name on it. I wouldn’t be surprised if he ran for president.… Read More

This blogger correctly mentions that Christianity does away with notions of animism. Unfortunately they fail to mention the arguments that have been brought against the views of Lynn White Jr. In addition, they seem to be submitting a view of the earth which goes beyond the usual limits of general revelation, and goes so far… Read More

I learned about hypermiling in mid June, and tried it out immediately on a drive down to Waco (about 100mi from me). I was amazed… Read More

Your probably thinking, “what i thought this was a blog about environmental problems!” It is. However, I’m not completely convinced that climate change is totally at the whim of CO2; and me driving my car (I am now a skilled hypermiling). It seems that other factors influence things a lot more than “mainstream pop-science” might… Read More

I ran across this great video message by a pastor I like. The video makes a point that we are Rich, and don’t even appreciate it. Check it out and see if it’s message fits with the message of living a sustainable lifestyle. part 1 part 2… Read More

Here in Texas we had a pretty bad hailstorm last night. In fact the weather service was indicating a possible tornado right near my house, so we took cover while the hail and wind were incredibly loud. After the noise died down I took this picture. It isn’t snow –its hail accumulation. It got me… Read More
