Only two sources of electricity are available to humans at this stage of our development: solar and atomic. When we burn anything to generate electricity, we release solar energy stored as biomass in coal, oil, gas, wood, or even municipal garbage.

As we have explored the “Green world” together, you may have gotten the impression that “environment” and “environmentalist” have very little in common.

In-depth interview covering Climate Change, looking at specific information that contradicts the current hysteria. Commences with Medved's description of a new children's book about the polar bears dying in the Arctic. Examines nuclear weapons and nuclear power, as well. Following this interview, the book hit #7 on the Amazon.com Bestseller list for environmental books, and hit #247 overall on Amazon Sales.

It's almost Thanksgiving, it's way too damned early in the morning, and the most profound thing I have to say is... I'm thankful.

Drought is becoming a way of life for many Southwestern communities. They sing the refrain, “Water, water, everywhere but here . . . ,” as with covetous eyes they gaze at the Columbia River and its tributaries. Several are seriously proposing to divert some of this water southwards.

In your mind, travel back to 1970, the year the first Earth Day happened. Flower children loved freely on our college campuses, but emerging violent protest painted an ugly backdrop. Leisure suits were popular, although men wearing them were developing thick waistlines and high foreheads. The micro miniskirt had replaced the mini, and “topless” had migrated from strip joints to certain “in”-crowd parties.

A country vocalist croons that we “burn fossil fuel and get it back as acid rain.” A popular conception is that many of our forests are being depleted to manufacture paper and that the remainder are dying because of acid rain; that our lakes are becoming acid laden, killing fish and other aquatic life. This is based in large part on the mineral titration theory, which was the key to environmentalist alarms regarding the acid rain threat during the 1980s.

The Greens have “alerted” all of us to the alarming possibility that we are destroying the Earth’s ozone layer and threatening all life on Earth. It’s an interesting premise. Let’s examine this acorn more closely.

Do you remember the story of Chicken Little? Chicken Little was hit on the head by an unseen falling acorn and convinced everyone that the sky was falling. This is a chapter about acorns, big ones and little ones. Some of these acorns relate to other acorns, perhaps because they fell together or close to each other. Some are lone acorns. A couple may even become oak trees, holding up the sky so it won’t fall.

Fourteen hundred Oregon family farmers located on 200,000 acres in the Klamath Basin are seeing their land dry up and blow away. Yielding to pressure by the Oregon Natural Resources Council, who threatened a lawsuit under the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation stopped the irrigation water the farmers have used since 1909.

A radioisotope thermoelectric generator, RTG for short, is a small, very long lasting power source—an outgrowth of the nuclear power program. About the size of a thermos bottle, it can supply useful power for very long periods of time. Because it has no moving parts, it is more reliable than most other power sources, and because it is not dependent upon any outside element, it can supply power where nothing else will work.

The mindset of Green deep ecology would be amusing if its consequences were not so drastic.

While I was at McMurdo Station on the Antarctic continent during the austral summer of 1981 and 1982, Greenpeace showed up with video cameras. Their obvious intent was to capture footage of the ter­rible environmental damage done to the pristine Antarctic landscape by the evil U.S. Navy polluters. What they discovered, however, were neatly stacked fifty-five-gallon oil drums awaiting transport back to the United States. In fact, the area was a poster-child example of how to manage the environment effectively.

While working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, I was assigned in the late 1970s to the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program to help determine an environmental baseline against which future environmental impacts could be measured. This kind of study is crucial to a complete understanding of the Arctic and should have been high on the Green's list of good things to do.
