When considering these themes in light of ecology, some have come to understand these terms in new ways. Sin has been interpreted as “wrong relationship”, and redemption is seen as restoring people and the… Read More


An article on MSNBC.com discusses the discovery of what seems to be a green or moist period in the region which is now the Sahara Desert (read here). To me this isn’t that revolutionary of an idea. If the continental drift theory is remotely correct, then it seems likely that just about any region on… Read More


A clever blogger recently wrote an interesting piece about the illusion of MPG gains. You can read their article here. The math makes sense, and shows that a rating of gallons/100mi (or something similar) would make more sense, and provide a better comparison. In other words, an increase from 25mpg to 50mpg seems huge because… Read More

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
