August 18, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Here in America and elsewhere around the world, Greens continue to war against any energy other than the “renewable” kind, wind and solar, that is more costly and next to useless.

The Hidden Persuaders Of The Environmental Elite

August 7, 2014 by


If you like the EPA, you’ll love the EGA By Ron Arnold ~ America’s environmental agenda is set by elite foundations that decide which activists get the money.

The Carbon TAX Scam

July 31, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ In a recent appearance before a congressional committee, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy told them that the agency’s proposed sweeping carbon-regulation plan was “really an investment opportunity.

The Idiocy Of “Environmental Justice”

July 10, 2014 by

June 26, 2014 by


By Tom Blumer ~ Wednesday afternoon, Huffington Post’s Sam Stein, whose track record of fundamentally dishonest reporting and refusing to admit the obvious even when caught red-handed goes back at least six years, used a tweet to promote an excuse even a six year-old wouldn’t dare try to use on his or her parents.

If It’s Wet, EPA Wants To Regulate It

June 13, 2014 by


By Ron Arnold ~ President Obama’s shameful attacks on his fellow citizens are piling up: his “War on Coal” (a new EPA “climate” rule to destroy the coal industry) and his “War on Ranching” (a half-million-acre “national monument” smothering New Mexico ranchers), have now been topped by his “War on Everybody Else.” By that I […]

June 3, 2014 by


By Alan Caruba ~ With some of the most sophisticated computers and satellites at its disposal, the U.S. Weather Service cannot tell you with any certainty what the weather will be in your area two weeks from now.
