By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ In poker if you are dealt a hand with a card missing that is a misdeal and the dealer must shuffle the deck and start again. The EU’s so-called Green Deal is just like that. What is missing is any hint of a plan. The proponents of this planless nonsense […]

By Steve Goreham ~ Occasionally a report appears which claims to be wisdom, but after careful analysis, offers solutions that don’t make much sense.

Breathe Free: Capitalism Helps Protect The Environment

October 23, 2019 by

2

By Nicolas Loris ~ A recent Rasmussen poll found 20% of voters feel we should eliminate capitalism to protect the environment. That’s like saying we should eliminate teachers to improve education. Truth be told, capitalism has helped cleanse our planet—improving living standards while protecting the environment. Rather than eliminate capitalism, policymakers need to unleash it. […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Is paralyzing traffic and stopping trains an act of civil disobedience, which should be tolerated? I would call it “serious disruption” and this is just what the climate alarmists plan for DC, September 20-23. They call it “civil disobedient disruption” but it is not a march, rally, sit-in, or other […]

By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ A constant refrain of climate alarmists and “clean-energy” business eager to cash in on the scare is that the use of fossil fuels to create energy is endangering the climate by overloading the atmosphere with manmade greenhouse gases. This, we are told, is responsible for rising sea levels, floods, droughts, […]

Climate Change Australia – Prime Minister Turnbull’s Carbon Tax Hits Hurdle

June 19, 2018 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s objection to this carbon tax is the better:  Labor is warning that a government proposal to impose 10 years of legislated emissions cuts on the electricity sector will be too weak and will undermine its support for Malcolm Turnbull’s signature ­energy policy, which also faces the […]

From the team at CFACT ~ The United States and Western democracies as a whole are increasingly minor players among global carbon dioxide emitters, U.S. EPA data show.

Two CO2 Climate Change Myths

March 14, 2018 by

5

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ CO2 does not “trap heat” in the atmosphere and the increase in CO2 is not a buildup of our emissions. In fact these are two pseudoscientific myths that appear frequently in alarmist press reports and teaching materials. Neither one is true. The science is quite different. It is actually pretty […]

To Improve The Environment, Look To The Free Market

March 7, 2018 by

1

By Nicolas Loris and Elliott Raia ~ Over the past three years, China had become the new poster child for economists and environmentalists alike. The country seemed to attain the impossible by maintaining high growth in gross domestic product, while at the same time reducing reported carbon emissions.

Germany Becomes The New Poster Child For Climate Change Hypocrisy

January 12, 2018 by

By Nicolas Loris ~ Climate hypocrisy is nothing new. Celebrities cruise around the world in their private jets, eating filet mignon while telling you to pack a salad and bike to work to reduce your carbon footprint. So, color me not at all surprised that Germany, a vocal critic of the U.S.’ decision to exit […]

Not News: Reductions In U.S. CO2 Emissions Dwarf The Rest Of The World

November 13, 2017 by

By Tom Blumer ~ The establishment press is making a big deal out of the fact that President Trump has not been and will not be personally invited to a climate summit in Paris in December. Both the media and the folks running the summit, where the utterly unoriginal theme is “Make Our Planet Great Again,” […]

Climate Change Australia – Hands Off Our Cars, Warmists

July 13, 2017 by

By Andrew Bolt ~ First our politicians turned electricity into a luxury item. Now they want to make cars too expensive as well.

By William R. Hawkins ~ A great deal of hysteria has been displayed on both sides of the Atlantic after President Donald Trump announced the withdrawal of the United States from the Paris Climate Accord, negotiated under the auspices of the United Nations in 2015.

World CO2 Emissions have risen hugely, while in the U.S. CO2 emissions have fallen ….. hugely.

By Tom Blumer ~ On the day after Earth Day’s “March for Science,” it seems appropriate to point to a column by University of Michigan History Professor Juan Cole in The Nation, a far-far-left publication considered a credible and authoritative go-to-source by the liberal intelligentsia. On April 18, Cole, echoing statements made during their final years […]
