Gulf Coast Hurricane Tracker

A single source reference on tropical weather predictions. With a traditional focus on the upper Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast we've maintained links to track all Atlantic Basin, Caribbean and eastern Pacific storm systems. We are now expanding our view to tropical storms throughout the world intending to be a comprehensive global storm tracking resource.

From the Governor who brought you higher taxes...

New Jersey's governor Corzine created a fiscal crisis in his state when he refuse to sign any budget that did not include increasing taxes. He used the requirements of the state law for a balanced budget to justify the need to raise taxes yet the bill he signed did no such thing. The budget wasn't balanced but taxes were raised and that was the real intent anyway.

Corzine has ordered the state Department of Environmental Protection in the next six months to draft a comprehensive plan for reducing emissions 20 percent by 2020 and 80 percent by 2050 statewide, according to a draft of the order obtained by The Star-Ledger.

The result will quickly be that New Jersey will raise the price of gas, home heating fuels and electricity. And to spread the wealth (or pain) they will require suppliers from outside the state to meet the same unrealistic and unnecessary requirements. Just another way to make New Jersey too expensive to live in.

New Jersey make great strides in reducing real air pollution over the past 30 years. Increasing efficiencies and researching alternate fuels are all good things. Taking the approach that Gov. Corzine is ordering is costly and won't change anything. For the same reasons that Kyoto is bad policy, NJ's attempt to meet the same targets is also bad policy and will hurt the state more than it has any chance of helping the environment.
