This idiot on Fox News thinks the Boston Marathon should be a call to kill all Muslims? Aside from the fact we don’t even know who the perpetrator was, responding to tragedy with hate and vengence, with blatant discrimination, is wrong. This amounts to adopting the very same attitude as the terrorists themselves, to stooping to their tactics.

It sure seems like the oil and gas corporations will rig the game and stack the deck to squeeze every nickle and dime out of the compromised consumers that they can manage. Alternate fuel technology has been impeded, blocked, stalled and denied to the motoring and breathing public for many decades.
Yes, some conversions and progress have been made but it is being dragged out as long as it can be. What is good for the oil & gas boys ain’t necessarily of any good for the rest of us.

North America just witnessed the hottest month in the history of record keeping (about 117 years). The month of July shattered every previous record, but was certainly not a freak occurrence. So far, the first 7 months of this year have been the warmest on average since records began over a century ago. Media outlets were abuzz with coverage of floods, droughts, fires, and storms, so naturally you’d think climate change would have played a massive role in their coverage.
You’d be wrong.
A great new study by Media Matters for America shows that our

This morning, the latest in pro-tar sands spin went live. KeystoneXLNow.com takes aim at President Obama for failing to approve the Keystone XL project (even though the White House just announced approval of the southern leg today), calling it "an affront to millions of Americans out of work and an outrage to millions more who are paying higher energy costs as a result of this administration's policies."

In Part 1 of this series, we explored the overall environmental issues that are facing the U.S., mostly as a part of coordinated attacks by politicians in Washington. In the next few articles, we’ll take a look at what each candidate has said or done in regards to both environmental and energy issues.

Since at least last summer, conservatives have been parroting the oil industry talking point that President Obama is somehow the one responsible for the spike in gasoline and oil prices. As we have pointed out, they base this on their assertion that the President has been “hostile” towards the dirty energy industry by prohibiting drilling and denying the passage of the Keystone XL Pipeline proposal. While the Keystone deal is currently on hold (although not even close to being off the table,) the assertion that the president has been hostile to the oil industry is beyond false.

At least Gerarldo Rivera preceded this outlandish claim with “I think”. Otherwise, he would have been taken away the men in the white coats. Just more Fox News craziness. Sad.
Hint to Rivera. Don’t ever come to Vancouver. You might shoot someone. We all wear hoodies here. It has something to do with the weather, not because of culture.
There was a time, believe it or not, when Fox New’s Shepard Smith openly mocked global warming deniers—seriously comparing them to a man who got stuck in a portable toilet. (Hat tip to D.R. Tucker for showing me this clip.) But since then, Fox has become a veritable misinformation machine on this topic.
One way the station sows doubt about the scientific consensus on climate change is through constantly putting climate “skeptics” on the air. A study by American University’s Lauren Feldman and her co-authors, for example, found that in the period of 2007-2008, 46 percent

Whenever the right uses the ‘false equivalence’ charge for well, virtually everything when they are caught red-handed, especially when it comes to hate speech, we on the left just have to laugh. All one has to do is view, on any day on any subject, the comments on a right-wing blog to see there is no equivalence between the left’s mocking and the right’s hating. I’m not just talking about haters
THEN: Back in 2008, Fox News pundits and contributors were eager to deflect criticism of the Bush administration, pointing out the myriad of global market factors contributing to the steep rise in gas prices at the time. Conservative columnist Cal Thomas quite rightly stated that, “no president has the power to increase or to lower gas prices.”
Various commenters observed that increased exploitation of domestic resources (e.g., drilling in Alaska’s Anwar Reserve) would be “literally a drop in the bucket” with no effect on prices (so much for the “Drill baby, drill” strategy). Heck, back then, Bill
