‘CO2 Levels’ And Your ‘Carbon Footprint’ – NOT The Problem You’ve Been Told

May 29, 2020 by


By Dan Nebert ~ Last year a student at a nearby university complained she couldn’t focus in class; she was convinced high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) were the cause. The entire building was immediately evacuated and tested for “toxic levels of this dangerous gas.” After determining the CO2 levels were less than 500 parts-per-million […]

Do Green Buses Pass The Performance Test?

February 17, 2020 by


By Duggan Flanakin ~ Should Americans follow China in a massive commitment to battery-electric buses? California has mandated a carbon-free bus system by 2040 and will only buy battery or fuel cell powered buses after 2029. Other states and cities are following suit. The keys to vehicle decisions have typically been cost and performance. Cost includes […]

UN Flies In 5,000 People To Salt Lake To Complain About Fossil Fuels

August 28, 2019 by


From the team at CFACT ~ How does the United Nations convince people that they are super serious in their outrage about fossil fuels? How about flying 4,000 people from all over the world in fossil-fueled jet airplanes to isolated Salt Lake City to whine about it? Sounds like a good plan to the United […]

January 31, 2018 by


By David Kreutzer, Ph.D. ~ A new study shows that if you aren’t ready to go vegan to save the world, then you should quit riding your bike and take a car. An article in the Journal of Insufferable Busybodies (official title: Sustainable Production and Consumption) calculates the carbon footprint for a variety of sandwiches. […]

Al Gore’s Carbon Footprint Hypocrisy

August 16, 2017 by


By Peter Parisi ~ Al Gore’s carbon footprint is the size of Godzilla’s, but to hear the liberal New Republic magazine’s Emily Atkin tell it, it really “doesn’t matter.” But it doesn’t really matter only if “do as I say, not as I do” has become the credo of Gore and his fellow climate change […]

If The Australian Greens Party Cared About Global Warming, They’d Back CSG – And Nuclear Power Too

November 4, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt But when did the Australian Greens truly believe in “the science”?: GREENS’ claims that there is no scientific proof CSG (coal seam gas) is better for the environment than coal have been undermined by a new expert report, which finds the carbon footprint of generating power from gas is up to 87 […]

Overpopulated Rhetoric

August 7, 2011 by


By Ken McIntyre Neglected news out of the Crazy from the Heat Department is word that the global overpopulists are in a terrific snit because soccer superstar David Beckham and his wife, Victoria, dare to continue producing children. Talk about a crime against nature. Fortunately, as The Wall Street Journal noted, the Beckhams had the […]

The Global Carbon Footprint Scam

November 22, 2009 by


By Alan Caruba I never cease to marvel at the environmental alarmists who create one “crisis” after another using wretchedly bad “science” to support their scams. On Tuesday, November 24, the Global Footprint Network is going to “release new data on the Ecological Footprint of 100 nations and humanity as a whole, and the current […]

Sweden’s CO2 Labeling: Deceptive Advertising?

October 26, 2009 by


By Ryan Young. A quick point to add to Fran Smith’s excellent post on Sweden’s experiment in labeling food and menus for their carbon footprints: don’t read too much into the labels. The New York Times notes that “the emissions impact of, say, a carrot, can vary by a factor of 10, depending how and […]

Today’s Calamity: Do We Want A Carbon Footprint Label On Everything We Buy?

September 18, 2009 by


By Nick Loris If cap and trade passes, businesses could soon face “The Scarlet Letter” treatment. Businesses may have to include a carbon label on their products that tells consumers how much carbon dioxide used in the production process. Cap and trade would raise production costs for businesses—forcing them to include a carbon label on […]

NYT Tries To Justify Its Carbon Footprint

April 20, 2009 by


From Clyde at The Patriot Room. This article is uproariously funny. The question posed is this: Is a printed newspaper more eco-friendly than viewing the same news online? Let’s just cut to the chase scene here. First, my computer exists. I read news online. Adding a few articles from another news site and taxing some […]
