Hurriedly constructed retention ponds, built in an attempt to contain and treat the water spilling from the Gold King Mine.
Orange appears to be a recurring theme for us lately.
Over a week ago (!), the EPA (technically, one of their contractors) turned the Animas River in Colorado a putrid curry orange, when they spilled into the river a tremendous amount of contaminated waste water from a defunct mine. This “accident” happened while the EPA was allegedly trying to prevent a spill and “clean up” a mine that’s been inactive for over 90 years. Their bone-headed blunder is raising many questions in the blogosphere.
Heck of a job, Barry!!!

We need scientific fact-checkers on the facts and statistics that Obama
pulled out of his rear shared during his “weekly address” about forcing power plants to reduce carbon emissions. Below, in bold type, are some of the “facts” and “scientific” claims he shared, with my comments in brackets:
Earlier this month, hundreds of scientists declared that climate change is no longer a distant threat – it “has moved firmly into the present.” [Show me a scientist who does not believe that the climate has constantly changed from the beginning of the world. Change is a reality; the causes are what remain in dispute.]

According to Scott Whitlock of NewsBusters, [emphasis added to quotes]
Chris Matthews appears to have a Mad Libs-style list of the worst insults he hurls at conservative. On Wednesday, he chose “verbal terror” to smear everyone on the right who disagrees with all of the “great things” Barack Obama wants to do. The Hardball anchor opened his show by hyperbolically warning, “Political armageddon!” According to Matthews, the fight between the President and conservatives is not a conflict of ideas. h/t Gordo
No, it’s much more than a conflict of ideas, alleges Matthews. Watch the video of him, salivating like a mad dog, at NewsBusters. Continue reading

Thanks to an anonymous tip, WTPOTUS has breaking news about the MOSCA (Morphable Obama Stealth Cybernetic Agent)–the very first miniature drone developed by the Barack Obama administration. This fly-like drone actually flies and, exactly like a regular housefly, “drones” (on and on and on, like the president).
Unlike some other drone technology (e.g., Darpa’s Hybrid Insect Micro Electromechanical Systems), which inserts mechanics inside of a real insect, the MOSCA was designed to be a totally self-replicating cybernetic organism (or cyborg). Thanks to nano- and bio-technology, a MOSCA can thrive on crap (again, like the president), gathering all the raw material it needs to replicate from sewage. Groundbreaking technology allows the drone to lay “eggs” that develop into cyborg-maggots and then into full-sized MOSCAs, whenever necessary. Continue reading

Dunes Sagebrush Lizard - WildearthGuardians
Question of the Day:
Drill Oil and Save Jobs or Save the Sagebrush Lizard?
Can you believe that there are multiple meetings taking place in New Mexico and West Texas over the Sceloporus arenicolus better known as the Dunes Sagebrush Lizard? I say the lizards are known, but in reality they are only known to those people who deal with reptiles, such as zoo keepers, and those who might have a specialized degree that includes the study of lizards, a few environmental groups, the EPA, and U.S. Department of Fish and Wildlife. Yet we are all now going to learn about the habitats of these small brown, 2 1/2 inch creatures, and how giving them their right to life is going to affect the species called human beings.
