Tax Incentives Are No Way To Drive Energy Innovation. Here’s Why.

March 24, 2021 by

1

By Adam Michel and Nicolas Loris ~ The best ways to tame environmentally harmful emissions is to allow the private sector to innovate cleaner and more efficient ways to produce, distribute, and use energy. Unfortunately, government subsides, mandates, and other regulations largely fail to spur such developments, and instead bolster government-favored technologies. The latest example […]

The Carbon Tax Shell Game

March 12, 2021 by

2

By Duggan Flanakin ~ The oft-spoken premise that there is a “social cost of carbon” (SCC) has led to a myriad of proposals for taxing calculated carbon dioxide emissions from motor vehicles. The idea is to tax (and legislate) “carbon” out of existence by using those taxes to subsidize electric vehicles. The latest of these proposals […]

Why ‘Social Cost Of Carbon’ Is Most Useless Number You’ve Never Heard Of

March 3, 2021 by

2

By Kevin Dayaratna ~ On his very first day in office, President Joe Biden issued an executive order resurrecting the Obama-era social cost of carbon, intended to quantify the economic impact of climate change. The administration on Feb. 26 issued an interim estimate reporting that these damages are approximately $51 per metric ton of carbon […]

IRONIC: Reuters Frets Dem Cities Drastically Underestimating Their Carbon Emissions

February 4, 2021 by

1

By Joseph Vazquez ~ It’s ironic when the liberal media uses the left’s own faulty climate change metrics to complain about liberal cities’ carbon emissions. Reuters whined in a new report that “U.S. cities are underestimating their carbon dioxide emissions by an average of 18%, according to a study released on Tuesday, potentially hindering their […]

China’s Worthless CO2 Pledge

From the team at CFACT ~ By Mark Mathis of The Clear Energy Alliance ~ China is going to be CO2 neutral in just 40 years! Hooray! …Right? No, not really. Communist China’s pledge to be CO2 neutral by 2060 is as phony as its claim of not stealing countless billions of dollars of US […]

CLINTEL Study Finds Most Of The CO2 Increase Is Natural

December 20, 2020 by

7

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Using a new observational approach to an old but most important question, CLINTEL President Guus Berkhout finds that about 62% of the atmospheric CO2 increase is due to natural sources, not human emissions. The study then looks at the implications for drastic CO2 reduction measures, finding that these measures will […]

Could CO2 Actually Cause Slight Beneficial Warming?

December 5, 2020 by

3

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Precision research by physicists William Happer and Willem van Wijngaarden has determined that the current levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and water vapor are “saturated.” In radiation physics that means adding more CO2 or water molecules will bring modest warming that will benefit plant growth, and thus all life on […]

Study Suggests No More CO2 Warming

October 27, 2020 by

3

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Precision research by physicists William Happer and William van Wijngaarden has determined that the present levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and water vapor are almost completely saturated. In radiation physics the technical term “saturated” implies that adding more molecules will not cause more warming. In plain language this means that […]

Crisis Looms In Alarmist Climate Science

October 21, 2020 by

12

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Climate science is dominated by alarmists addicted to the idea that increasing carbon dioxide will cause dangerous global warming. How much warming is thus the central scientific question. This question has been surprisingly difficult to answer despite 40 years of research, costing tens of billions of dollars. Now the issue […]

Could Coal Be The Answer For Billions Without Energy?

August 17, 2020 by

By Todd Royal ~ Over 600 million Africans are still without energy and electricity. The movie “Juice” brilliantly illustrates through visual representation how billions are without electricity; and without electricity and the energy from mainly fossil fuels, life returns to the Dark Ages. Whereas liberal documentary filmmaker Michael Moore exposes the fallacy, human misery, and […]

The High Costs And Low Benefits Of Electric Vehicles

August 7, 2020 by

By Duggan Flanakin ~ The rush to decarbonize every nation in the world in one or maybe two decades reflects the “I want it all NOW!” philosophy imbued through modern education systems. Current and recent former students – and their teachers – demand a perfect world (since they can envision one) and exhibit zero patience (hence […]

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ For the past three decades the public has been taught by the news media and the folks who make a living composing mathematical equations they claim to simulate how our planets climate operates, that our oceans are in jeopardy. They have all told you one of the biggest falsehoods in […]

Checklist Of Green Deal Cost Elements

April 19, 2020 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Green Deal proposals are springing up around the world. The core concept is zero CO2 emissions via decarbonization. The proponents of these Green Deals deliberately avoid cost estimates because the costs are horrendous. To help force these huge costs out into the open I have developed the following simple checklist […]

Carbon Credit Scam Exposed: Carbon Markets Fail As CO₂ Declines

From the team at CFACT ~ Environmentalists and green bureaucrats have watched in shock as the coronavirus global shut down has now caused carbon credit markets to crash. The European Union’s carbon credits price has fallen by 40% this year so far. This market was worth $215 billion last year, according to Bloomberg Environment. The […]

CO2 Has Its Benefits

Common Sense Musings On The Climate Debate

October 14, 2019 by

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Scientists on both sides of the climate debate agree; Fossil fuel use puts C02 (Carbon Dioxide) into the atmosphere. Plants need C02 to survive. C02 is a greenhouse gas. Water vapor (clouds) is the largest greenhouse gas, by far. C02 levels in the atmosphere have increased and are higher than […]
