  Best of TomDispatch: Ernest Callenbach, Last Words to an America in Decline Posted by Tom Engelhardt at 4:19pm, August 25, 2013. Thirty-five years later, it was still on my bookshelf in a little section on utopias (as well it should have been, being a modern classic).  A friend had written his name inside the cover and even dated it: August 1976, the month I returned to New York City from years of R&R on the West Coast.  Whether I borrowed it and never returned it or ...

Fracking

Fracking

To the Editor, Did the Loveland petition carriers ride their bikes to City Hall to turn in their petitions? Maybe, but there are better questions about hydraulic fracturing. What really is happening out there? How often do spills occur, what have been their effects on ground and surface waters, and have there been attempts to keep this information from us? How can we get oil and gas out of the ground without poisoning drinking water or causing air pollution that leads to serious health ... Full Story

Gardner: More Republican lies

What do you know about the Keystone Pipeline?

What do you know about the Keystone Pipeline?

There is a great deal of controversy over the Keystone XL pipeline, the latest addition to the existing Keystone network. The pipeline moves diluted bitumen from the Athabasca Oil Sands in Alberta, Canada, to multiple destinations in the United States. The current network extends to refineries in Illinois and a distribution hub in Oklahoma. Claims that the importing of the tar sands oil will ease the energy “crisis” in the United States are questionable because the oil in the XL ... Full Story

Occupy Our Fears of Iran

By Winslow Myers U.S. behavior long ago provided one causal context for our unease about the presumed nuclear aspirations of the Islamic Republic of Iran: the U.S. and Britain messed with Iran’s last authentically democratic election in 1953, fearing communist influence and the nationalization of oil.
