Writings of J. Todd Ring: The real costs of fossil fuel-powered vehicles – and the alternatives to them

  There is some rising concern, and at times vitriol, about electric car drivers not paying their fair share, because they buy no gas, and therefore do not pay gas taxes, which go to maintaining roads. While this is true, it is only a sliver of the bigger picture. The more salient fact is that ...

Writings of J. Todd Ring: Conservatives in Canada swing further to the far right – the other two major parties are little better

The Conservative party of Canada is clearly playing into fear, xenophobia and racism as a way to win votes, as its “War on Terror” narrative, its racial baiting and its new snitch line show.

Saskboy's Abandoned Stuff: Oil Putting Food on Families

Pardon the Bushism. The CPC’s spin regarding the oil crowding out grain shipments by rail must be inspired by Dubya. @saskboy @LHubich That's an odd argument.

The Scott Ross: Atheist For Christmas, Christian For St.Paddy’s

Most atheists are as irrational as those who believe in religion. And perhaps even more hypocritical.  There’s no greater example of this than those vocal opponents of religion who criticize Christmas but in just a few months time celebrate St.Patrick’s Day and other religious holidays with unrivaled enthusiasm.
