Sierra Club sticks nose in Oakland mayors race, gets it “bit off”

Uh oh! Someone's trying to bite my nose off!

Evidently the Sierra Club is out to get a beating this month. First they lost to coal (here), then they complained about getting “their asses kicked” (here), now they’ve stuck their nose into the Oakland, California mayors race by trying to limit who will be at the “Green Oakland” forum they’re sponsoring. To make matters worse, they sent an e-mail to someone who’s not even running for mayor.

Here’s some snippets from what’ I’d term the flaming retort.

This is, if it’s real, without a doubt the most awful email I’ve ever seen in Oakland politics. First, I’m not running for Mayor of Oakland. Second, I’m a video-blogger, which means I intend to make the transmission public. Third, do you realize that the reasons stated for having just three candidates at the “Green Forum” add up to a silly, giant, unfunny joke on the people of Oakland?

The Sierra Club has no business sticking its nose in Oakland politics to try and rig an election. Oaklanders deserve to see and hear from each person running for Mayor of Oakland.

That The Sierra Club, that great organization that seems to pride itself on intellect or at least has cultivated such a brand identity, can’t solve this math and logistics problem presented is both hilarious and sad.

Sierra Club gets ‘asses kicked’ again today

Sounds like the Sierra Club is having a bad day. Perhaps it’s karma for all the money they cost taxpayers and consumers via their greentard lawsuits.

From the Hill we hear them lamenting that “green groups are getting their ‘asses kicked’ in Washington.”

Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune said “clean energy” advocates are getting their “asses kicked” inside the Beltway and is calling on environmental groups to rethink their strategies following the collapse of climate change legislation.

Who’s lamenting? I’m perfectly OK with no climate legislation and I hope it stays that way because it’s not any more of a real problem than Captain Kirk having problems on Star Trek is.

Next we get what amounts to perhaps the stupid moment of the year.

“The first thing we need to do is a good assessment of what went wrong. We should not try to do the same thing and expect a different result. We need to rethink what the best way is to build momentum to fight climate change.

Evidently he just doesn’t get the fact that the reason there’s a problem is because most of us with gray matter inside our cranium have figured out that anthropogenic global warming is a fraud and a hoax. If you want to know what went wrong how about telling people the truth and cease all the hysteria?

He proceeds to lay blame per below. Of course it just couldn’t be that the general public isn’t as stupid as the “warmers” think they are could it? Nah they’re all “geniuses” and the public are dumb.

“As advocates for clean energy we’re getting our asses kicked inside the Beltway, and part of the reason is that the oil and coal companies and, in many cases, the natural gas companies, have a much more powerful, much more dominant voice,” he said.

This is just too funny. Now he’s complaining about natural gas companies. Last I heart it’s one of the cleaner ways to get power without shredding birds or glowing in the dark. Shows you they really don’t like anything at all. What about nuclear? Oh yeah……

He warned against climate legislation that heaps subsidies on “clean” coal and nuclear power…..

Nope, can’t have nuclear either. I suppose if they get their greentard way and we all move back into caves they’ll be complaining about the smoke coming from the fire. Oh wait….we already have that in the San Francisco Bay Area because on certain nights it’s illegal to use your fireplace. I guess we can just all freeze to death, which I’m sure will make the Sierra Club happy, providing any of them are left alive.

More CO2 Insanity. Something I wish we’d run out of.

Coal 1, Sierra Club 0

Can someone hide me from the Sierra Club before they sue me?

The Sierra Club, who seem to be enemies of everything and anything, lost a round today in their lawsuit against a coal plant in South Dakota. Seems they filed too late and the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals threw it in the round file cabinet. I’d wager that had this been a nuclear power plant or a natural gas power plant they would have sued, too.  I’d even wonder if they’d sue over solar or wind power plants, too.  Seems they just don’t want anyone to have anything, regardless what it is. I’m surprised they haven’t sued the Eveready Energizer Bunny, too.

Yet more CO2 Insanity.
