That’s absurd


Preposterous. The sinister Bill McKibben, along with scientist James Hansen, now have criminal records for sitting in front of the White House in an effort to raise consciousness about the implications of our addiction to fossil fuels.

Color me skeptical. Talisman Energy offers to our children a coloring book titled, “Talisman Terry’s Energy Adventure.” It features Talisman Terry, the Friendly Fracosaurus. The book assures kids that hydrofracking is safe and patriotic and fun! On the “Before Drilling” page, kids can color a picture of birds, and trees, and deer, and a smiling sun and even a rainbow! The “After Drilling” picture is exactly the same, but this one has a gas well in it!

Everything’s just fine!
