Koch Industries recently published a response to the work of UK Independent journalist Steve Connor, whose work, Koch says, "misled readers." The two articles accused Koch Industries of secretly funding attacks on climate change.

The articles written by Connor "got many facts about Koch wrong," according to the open letter published on the company's website. Koch was also unhappy that the British newspaper edited down its letter to the paper without their knowledge, "censoring key information and important context." The accusatory pieces were titled "Exclusive: Billionaires secretly fund attacks on climate science" and "Top climate scientist denounces billionaires over funding for climate-sceptic organisations," published on January 24 and 25 respectively. Koch's open letter pointedly said that the articles were "predictable in repeating tired and debunked partisan accusations" about their company and said journalist Connor essentially started with a premise and went on to "prove" his claims, "offering readers just one side of the story."

This is just an effort to justify the EPA's ongoing drive to give itself more power to control our daily lives by cajoling readers to accept its political point of view by stealth.

The Environmental Protection Agency has been indulging its inner propagandist by spending at least $3.5 million to float a newspaper that is purportedly "reporting" on the EPA's pet issues. Unfortunately for the readers of this newspaper, the fact that the EPA is its sugar daddy is never told the reading public. So much for an independent press!

Shockingly, MSNBC and CNN were the lucky recipients of Obama's stimulus bucks for a jobs program that netted no new jobs.

The advertisements were created to promote Obama's so-called "green training" job programs and were handled by the PR firm McNeely Pigott & Fox Public Relations LLC at a cost of $495,000 to the taxpayers. Two video ads ran for two months, 14 times a week during Countdown With Keith Olbermann and The Rachel Maddow Show...

Veganism dates back to 1944, when British Vegan Society co-founder Donald Watson coined the term to mean "non-dairy vegetarian." Vegans eschew animal products in food, clothing, household products, or for any other reason.

There are a variety of reasons why people "go vegan." Some simply don't like the taste of meat. Some claim veganism is "green," and that a vegan lifestyle minimizes impact on the environment. Do ethical vegans live up to this stated standard? Do their actions live up to their own stated ethical principle, that animals have the right not to be treated as property? Do their actions really result in zero animal use?

It was an Ice Age squirrel's treasure chamber, a burrow containing fruit and seeds that had been stuck in the Siberian permafrost for over 30,000 years.

From the fruit tissues, a team of Russian scientists managed to resurrect an entire plant in a pioneering experiment that paves the way for the revival of other species. The Silene stenophylla is the oldest plant ever to be regenerated, the researchers said, and it is fertile, producing white flowers and viable seeds.

Yesterday many US newspapers carried front-page stories on the severity of influenza so far this season. The New York Times story began with "It is not your imagination - more people you know are sick this winter, even people who have had flu shots."

Is this really a bad flu season? Before we answer that question, I would like to complain about what the Times wrote: 'more people you know are sick this winter, even people who have had flu shots". A similar sentiment appeared in a recent Forbes column "Influenza-like-illness is sweeping the country with the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention reporting that most areas of the country experiencing high rates. I should know, my family is in the midst of it despite having been vaccinated." Remember that having a respiratory illness does not mean that you have influenza - it could be caused by a number of other viruses which of course would not be blocked by influenza vaccine. Furthermore, the influenza vaccine is not 100% effective - it's about 60-70% effective in individuals younger than 65 years.

WEST GLACIER - Glacier National Park has cited one of its employees for an incident last weekend that resulted in a park ranger shooting and killing a mountain lion.

Glacier spokeswoman Denise Germann was out of the office Friday and unavailable for comment. Bill Hayden, filling in for Germann, said the park would not release the woman's name because of concerns for her safety. Germann issued a news release that said an investigation determined the woman failed to maintain control of her pet, as required by park regulations.

Often in the wake of a big massacre such as what happened recently in Aurora, people are scared, sad and looking for answers.

Unfortunately, the media ALWAYS distorts the problem; placing blame on the need for stricter gun laws, or gun bans altogether. The truth is the gun is hardly the problem as everyone knows; guns don't kill people, people kill people. When incidents like this occur, shouldn't people be focusing on what caused this senseless act to happen in the first place, rather than the weapons that were used to carry out these horrific acts? But don't expect the media to let you know that one of the biggest causes is the products of the pharmaceutical companies that just happen to bankroll the corporate gatekeepers.
