So What's the "Smog"-o-sphere?

One of our readers just emailed asking who we would consider to be part of the “Smog”-o-sphere, the antithesis of the “DeSmog”-o-sphere.

Here's a few of the blog sites we keep our eye on:

CEI's Open Market Blog

Heartland Institute Blog

National Association of Manufacturer's Blog

NewsBusters

Amy Ridenour's National Policy Blog

Michelle Malkin's Blog

So there you go. The Smog-o-Sphere. Who did we miss?

SaskBoy recommended we add SmallDeadAnimals to the list and we agree.

You missed Kate’s smalldeadanimals.com which regularly has comments about “Y2Kyoto” and how Tim Ball is the greatest thing since sliced white bread.

Is there anything not in the “About” section you would like to know?

Where? Tell me how you came to that conclusion. 

Gee. Your IP goes to a generic server. You must be “cloaking.”

Disruption

This is a guest post by Zach Roberts.

As a documentary producer, I watch more than my fair share of environmental protest documentaries — probably about 20 a year. And almost all of them have the same, vague message: we need to do something!

Their scenes re-play like a bad video montage in my mind: earnest young people speaking at podiums, boring climatologists rambling on about the coming end of the world, forest fires, melting ice shelves, you know how it goes. In the lefty journalism world, we call this “preaching to the choir.”
