  • More green hypocrisy

    By Nicole Byerley

    The environmental Left breeds hypocrisy. My last column addressed Denver’s ridiculous green roof initiative and the dissociative ideals of forced solar panels vs. pollution and affordable housing.

    Environmentalists seem to harbor a disconnect between the manufacturing of “green,” sustainable items and the evils of capitalism and true pollution. Regulatory aspects of the environmental movement also mean big power and big votes in cities.

  • Truth on trial

    Editor’s note: This is part I of a bi-weekly six-part series

    “Pilate saith unto him, What is truth?”

    — John 18:38 KJV

    The truth is truth is on trial. The fact is facts are on trial. What’s reality? “The Matrix” in real time.

  • Gravel pit in Empire not a good idea

    The recently proposed Empire gravel pit has understandably raised more than red flags; it has raised alarms, concerns and blood pressure. For good reason.
    It would permanently alter a sizable piece of pristine land west of U.S. 40 on the ascent up from Interstate 70, changing it into a stark moonscape denude of life and inhospitable for wildlife over the next quarter century.

  • Green roof hypocrisy

    The environmental movement is riddled with hypocrisy. I see nothing wrong with respecting our planet, reducing waste, and limiting our individual “carbon footprints.” I do take serious issue with government increasing regulations and passing laws to force businesses and individuals to conform to their ideas of how these matters should be handled.  

  • Adults in the room

    Don’t waste any time mourning. Organize!
    — Labor organizer and activist Joe Hill before his execution by Utah authorities

    Progressives carry an enormous burden: They’re expected to be the adults in the public room, to speak with erudition and behave civilly. They’re not allowed to rant, which Merriam-Webster defines as “bombastic extravagant language.”

  • Rush hour traffic

    “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”
    — Abraham Lincoln

    The debate is now about civility, the act of being nice. America is so debased that we need Miss Manners to urge us to our nature’s better angels.
