September 17, 2022 by

3

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ A group of academics and environmentalists is proposing reintroducing wolves, beavers, and a host of other animal and plant species on broad swaths of federal land in the West, touting it as a way to mitigate drought, wildfires, and, of course, climate change. “Beyond concerns for human survival and flourishing, […]

July 13, 2022 by

2

By Ronald Stein ~ Shortages of the following may be leading to the new norm of shortages and inflation: Neon -the gas crucial to manufacturing electronic chips. Urea – the ingredient to make the EPA required Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) additive for all diesel vehicles. Refineries – projections of 20 percent closures over the next […]

EPA Now Stuck Between A Rock And A Hard Place On CO2

July 6, 2022 by

3

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ There are lots of happy reports on the Supreme Court’s ruling throwing out EPA’s so-called Clean Power Plan. Some go so far as to suggest that EPA is barred from regulating power plant CO2 emissions. It is not quite that simple and the result is rather amusing. EPA is still […]

Happy 4th Of July: America In Turmoil From Climate Change Policies

July 4, 2022 by

3

By Peter Murphy ~ This Independence Day weekend, the 246th, America is in turmoil, both domestically and overseas due in large measure to federal climate change policies. America’s multiple crises are mostly self-inflicted by our ruling political class, and it’s likely to continue well before any improvement. Consumer inflation is the worst it’s been in […]

Biden’s Solar Power Scam: How Phony Emergency Declaration Will Help China

June 30, 2022 by

1

By Roger Severino and James Carafano ~ When it comes to energy policy, President Joe Biden has become a master of doing the wrong things for the wrong reasons. His policies on solar panel production and imports are prime examples. Everyone agrees that we ought to be good stewards of the planet. That’s why it’s critical […]

Five Real Solutions To Joe Biden’s Energy Failures

June 26, 2022 by

2

From the team at CFACT ~ By Larry Behrens: These days, there are a lot of critics of the Biden Administration’s policies on energy, and for good reason. A gallon of gas reached five dollars, and the response from the Administration has been a collective shrug of the shoulders. Over the weekend, Energy Secretary Jennifer […]

Don’t Blame Putin Or Petroleum Companies For Biden’s Pump Pain

March 21, 2022 by

1

By Larry Bell ~ As his administration now scrambles to solicit supply oil shortages from OPEC, Venezuela, and Iran to reduce skyrocketing energy costs ahead of Democrat congressional mid-term election casualties, let’s remember this contradicts former 2019 candidate Joe Biden’s campaign pledge that “I guarantee you we’re going to end fossil fuels.” Let’s also recall […]

Biden Hitwoman’s Poison Pen Stops Twin Metals Mine

February 4, 2022 by

0

By Duggan Flanakin ~ News flash: January 26, 2022. Headline: Biden Administration Cancels Twin Metals Leases. Did Joe Biden lie to American miners during the 2020 Presidential campaign, or did the lie come from zealous “reporters”? Two weeks before the election, one reporter cited “three [unnamed] sources familiar with the matter” to claim that Biden’s support […]

Russia Moves Into The Arctic As The U.S. Withdraws

January 23, 2022 by

6

By Duggan Flanakin ~ The Biden Administration is proving to be the willing lackey of Russian President Vladimir Putin. At his January 19 press conference, Biden, perhaps aware that Putin’s forces have already surrounded Ukraine, acknowledged that Russia is very likely to undertake a “minor incursion” into the country where his son once held a powerful […]

Biden Policies Unnecessarily Pit Development Against Nature

January 9, 2022 by

1

By Duggan Flanakin ~ The Biden Administration, in a mad and ineffective rush to stave off climate catastrophe, is confounding those who seek protection of threatened and endangered species and habitat. Two recent federal agency decisions champion “sustainable” development over species and habitat protection; an appeal of a third may yield the same result. In a […]

Biden’s Climate Policy A Titanic Disaster In Waiting

November 4, 2021 by

3

By James Carafano and Jack Spencer ~ Rather than spending trillions that we do not have and making promises that cannot be kept, Congress and the administration should focus on implementing policies that reduce regulatory barriers to energy innovation, streamline permitting and regulatory reviews, and promote pro-growth tax policy. President Joe Biden’s approval ratings are […]

Lawsuit Alleges Cronyism At Biden EPA To ‘Rubber-Stamp’ Green Agenda

October 13, 2021 by

0

By Fred Lucas ~ The Biden administration’s Environmental Protection Agency is violating the law in a “purge” of advisory committees in order to “rubber-stamp” regulations, a lawsuit alleges, and in the process sweeping away a Trump administration policy against conflicts of interest. The lead plaintiff in the case is Stanley Young, who in March was […]

Biden Proclaims September “National Wilderness Month,” Bad Timing, Joe

September 12, 2021 by

1

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ As catastrophic wildfires continue to ravage the parched West, President Joe Biden – showing the same deft hand that enabled him to turn Afghanistan along with billions of dollars of sophisticated U.S. military equipment and an undetermined number of American citizens over to the Taliban – chose precisely this moment […]

Biden Climate Change Policy A ‘House Of Cards’

August 24, 2021 by

2

By Peter Murphy ~ “It’s getting late early,” said that great 20th century philosopher, Yogi Berra. For President Joseph Biden, this nugget from the New York Yankees Hall of Fame catcher sticks like butterscotch as his policy blunders pile up and Americans increasingly feel their baleful effects. They include the bungled withdrawal from Afghanistan, menacing […]

What You Need To Know About Biden’s Ill-Conceived Executive Order On Electric Vehicles

August 10, 2021 by

1

By Katie Tubb ~ President Joe Biden issued an executive order Aug. 5 calling for half of all new vehicles sold in the U.S. to be zero-emission vehicles by 2030. A president can’t exactly force Americans to buy an electric vehicle, and Biden largely meant his executive order as a messaging tool to fuel enthusiasm […]

Energy And Climate Policies, Cronyism Don’t Belong In Bloated Senate Infrastructure Bill

August 4, 2021 by

2

By Katie Tubb ~ The infrastructure package being debated in the Senate this week weighs in at a whopping 2,702 pages and $1.1 trillion. While the layman might think of infrastructure as roads and bridges, Washington’s definition is about as nebulous as the measures by which lawmakers are claiming they pay for the bill. Nearly […]

Heads Up: Biden Administration Will Reimpose Disastrous “WOTUS” Water Rule

July 31, 2021 by

2

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ The biggest power grab in the 50-year history of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was significantly blunted in April 2020, when the Trump administration – to the relief of rural communities across the country — rolled back the Obama-era “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) rule and replaced it with […]

Another Biden Administration Eco-Con

July 17, 2021 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Via yet another decree (Executive Order 14008), President Biden has instructed government agencies to “permanently protect” at least 30% of all US lands and waters by 2030. This “30 X 30 Plan” appears to presume that any areas not designated as park, refuge or wilderness are not “protected,” even though the […]

AOC’s CCC Isn’t FDR’s CCC

July 2, 2021 by

1

By Thomas Gallatin ~ Her $70 billion Civilian Climate Corps would be an army of well-paid climate activists. They may share the same initials, but Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Civilian Climate Corps” is no Great Depression-era Civilian Conservation Corps. The Bronx representative and her Green New Deal pal, Massachusetts Democrat Senator Ed Markey, are pushing for $70 […]

Biden Uses Prairie Chicken As A Pretext To Throttle U.S. Energy

June 27, 2021 by

1

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ With its decision to add the lesser prairie chicken to the endangered species list, the Biden administration is using the pretext of protecting a member of the grouse family to further curtail oil and gas development on private lands in five states. Biden officials are seeking the listing of the […]

Green Mania Hits The Wall Of Nothingness

June 24, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ It is now clear that none of Biden’s radical green promises are going to be kept. More broadly the wild green fantasies are going nowhere. There will be some action, but nothing much. None, nowhere, nothing much — welcome to the wall of nothingness. I for one am celebrating it, […]
