Environmental hypocrisy

Bob Irvin, the president and CEO of American Rivers, got on his high horse to blast President Trump over what Irvin hysterically calls "climate change" which he says endangers rivers/.

However, Irvin failed top hold Barack Obama accountable when Obama's regime blundered and poisoned the Animas River with 3,500,000 gallons of toxic sludge and heavy metals.

The Environmental Protection Administration oversaw the worst industrial accident in American history.



Irvin blamed a company that had folded 90 years earlier:
“The toxic waste polluting the Animas River is a tragedy for Durango, and all of the communities that rely on this river for clean drinking water, irrigation, recreation and livelihood. This disaster is a reminder of our dependence on clean, healthy rivers, and the importance of rivers to our health and local economies.”
The company closed the mine in 1923.

The EPA bungled the cleanup effort.

Now Irvin wants that same polluter, EPA, to battle the imaginary problem of carbon dioxide.

From Yahoo News:
“If the Trump administration and Congress don’t continue to address the water issues in the Lower Colorado Basin, we’re facing a real crisis in that region,” Bob Irvin, the president and CEO of American Rivers, told Yahoo News. “We are experiencing historic droughts in the Colorado Basin, and that’s a result of climate change. Unless we pay attention to that and actually address the impacts of climate change on water supplies in the basin, things are only going to get worse.”
The Lower Colorado Basin is located in what we called in the 19th century the Great American Desert.

We should worry about real problems, such as the EPA polluting rivers.




The original, "Trump the Press" chronicled and mocked how the media missed Trump's nomination.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.
Then came "Trump the Establishment," covering the election, which again the media missed.

It is available on Kindle, and in paperback.

  2. That, and the eco friendly windmills chopping birds and bats to death, while the low humming impact on people and animals, not to mention the solar panels frying birds right out of the sky....Solyndra anyone? Then there was the dead body found at the site of the ND pipeline protesters, and all the trash, and the abandoned pets.

  3. In more recent news enviro's are having a fit because Pepsi spilled soft drink syrup into a river in Michigan. If someone managed to drink this the worst that would happen is they would get a sugar high. How about if they drank any water from the Animas River?

  6. Trust the EPA?-ask a Navajo...
    Their 1,5 Billion suit got tossed
    by an Obama appointed judge, and the
    EPA said it is not to blame. Like Mr. Greeblob ..
    I have Navajo friends who are hurt by this...

  7. In the face of Islamic terrorism, what do Greenie-Leftie-Multi-Culti Swedish newspapers do?

    Why, they go after the Volvos, of course: http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/04/11/ban-cars-newspaper-stockholm-attack/

  8. Didn't My President allow them to sue the EPA? My memory....well, you know.

  9. Since we are on the subject of lying greenies, the latest research on the Great Barrier Reef shows that Australia is the fastest moving continent moving north at 1.5 metre a year and the GBR has risen 5 cm so the tides at Lizard Is are 5cm lower are not always covering the reef at low tide where the photos of bleaching are mainly taken. Watch for a new story to emerge. CD

    1. Obama's retirement will no doubt see him switch from stopping global warming to halting continental drift.

    2. I dived the southern part of the GBR near the Tropic of Capricorn the past November and saw little or no evidence of coral bleaching there (consistent with the graphic in the article, which shows most of the effect is north of Townsville QLD).

  10. American Rivers always has struck me as a communist far left bunch of kooks that don't want any development anywhere, and if hillary or obozo pollute the Columbia River and kill a zillion salmon, that's OK b/c they are fellow travelers. Far left kooks. Use science as a pretense to push their anti-coal, anti-development, open borders communist America-destroying agenda.

  11. The pigpen left: Dead body found in DAPL protest debris -- http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2017/04/the_pigpen_left_dead_body_found_in_dapl_protest_debris.html

    he body was of a California man who hung out at protests as an "activist" and who had been reported missing by his stepbrother last October. It was found in the Cannonball River, where it had been left among all the detritus of the protesters, apparently none of them particularly caring, yet all full of self-righteous virtuousness about saving the earth as their demonstration spun into chaos. That's right: they left a fellow protester's dead body behind in a river but piously lectured the people of the North Dakota about the horrors of the Dakota Access Pipeline polluting some lake.

  12. Take a look at Figure 3 here for flow in the Colorado river:

    https://pubs.usgs.gov/fs/2004/3062/

    This is the typical sort of bull crap that climate extortionists use to support their claim(s). If you'll notice that regression it shows the "negative slope" typical of the climate extortionists. Droughts? Sure. Climate? Yep. Man made, uh, no.

    Now, if there is truly a negative trend follow me onward...If you take the data and perform a "moving average" of step n, and then re-do the linear regression you should essentially have a negative slope; the percent variance accounted for (PVAC) should get better. With these data you don't and it doesn't. The statistical "slope test" doesn't violate the null hypothesis that slope=zero. Thus, no change.

    Lies, damn lies, and statistics.

    Statistics is the most "failed" course of STEM majors, not to mention pedestrians on the street. 85% of fourth year college students can't read a relationship between x and y on a single line graph.

    Climate change is the purest form of Gruberism ever invented.

    1. Looks like some cherry pickin' there from USGS. Sure, the 1920s were wet, and 2007-2016 were dry, so what do you expect the trend to be. We now have longer term flow data, extrapolated from tree-ring analysis, that shows a more complete picture and shows that extended deep droughts are part of the river's long-term flow behavior. Carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere barely affect, if at all, Colorado R snowpack and flows (Farm Boy the Science Guy).
