Climate Change Busyness

January 27, 2014 by

December 19, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The Obama administration’s relentless war on the nation’s coal industry and on the electrical power generation plants that depend upon it is one aspect of his war on America that doesn’t receive the attention it deserves.

Environmentalism’s Endless Lies

December 12, 2013 by

Global Warming: The BIGGEST LIE Exposed

September 22, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ I will never understand the kind of thinking behind a lie so big that it became an international fraud and swindle.

EPA’s New CO2 Regulations: Time For Congress To Step Up
