Twitter war!

Environmental Economics

Just call me the Darren Rovell of environmental economics. I received this comment via twitter: neither confuse big government with more efficient government, which is an even more frequent bias. The problem with that, and twitter in general, is there is little explanation for the comment. Is the tweeter saying that a benefit-cost analysis should be conducted to determine the most efficient amount of monitoring and enforcement?

The "war on coal" continues

Environmental Economics

David J. Hayes and James H. Stock: CONGRESS long ago established a basic principle governing the extraction of coal from public lands by private companies: American taxpayers should be paid fair value for it. They own the coal, after all. Lawmakers set a royalty payment of 12.5 percent of the sale price of the coal in 1976. Forty years later, those payments remain stuck there, with actual collections often much less.

War is a racket

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) War is a racket, said Maj. Butler wsaid and wrote in 1933: "In the World War ( and he was here referring to World War One. The Second World War was still a few years away) a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during the World War. How many other war millionaires falsified their tax returns no one knows.

War is never the answer.proper pricing is

Environmental Economics

Politically, the White House is hesitant to say they’re having a war on coal.    On the other hand, a war on coal is exactly what’s needed. ”. Phrasing this as a war on coal just puts people on the defensive and creates political backlash.  “Everybody is waiting for action,” [Daniel P. Schrag, a White House climate adviser and director of the Harvard University Center for the Environment] said.

War on Nature

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) In a few centuries since the industrial revolution, modern humans have waged war on nature, destroying ecosystems and collapsing our one shared biosphere. The issue is, however, that if man ever wins that war, he, and that is all of us, is doomed. Not make war on it. Only when we learn that we cannot win the war on Nature and that it will destroy ourselves will balance come back into the system and we need to work on that as well.

Overcoming the Water Wars

Cool Green Science

Photo: Peter Warren. By Giulio Boccaletti. In stories about water in the Western U.S., we read too often about conflict. The word recalls the severity of water issues we face globally, from drought-prone areas of Asia to the infrastructure-poor countries of central and southern Africa. And, understandably, it begs the question: Is our own water future one of scarcity? At the heart of that question is how we as a society will manage our water resources in the future.

This is yet another sign of what many of us have been saying for years – but then we are but conspiracy theorists – namely that freedom of opinion and freedom of speech is only valid as long as you only say that what the governments agree to.

The timeline of wars can seem to go on for what seems like forever, but it’s really the contaminants as a result of the war that seep into the earth and affect humanity in unfathomable measures.

The war on the homeless

Green (Living) Review

There was a time when we waged a war on poverty and not on poor people and this is not just the case in the USA. In the UK the war on homeless people has taken another twist in that it is now a serious criminal offense – felony to our American cousins – to occupy an unoccupied building and make it into a home; squatting, as it is called here.

Austerity a cover for class war against the poor

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Austerity is being used as a cover-story for class war against the poor Austerity and deficit reduction are being used as a cover-story for conducting class war against the poor as simultaneous reductions in taxes on the wealthy and cuts to spending on social security amount to a redistribution of wealth away from the poor to the rich. Thus it can be called nothing else but class war, or maybe we could even go as far to call it warfare on the poor.
