Carbon Tracking Credit Cards

September 17, 2021 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ The ability to constantly digitally track and record what we do exposes us to the potential for monstrous abuse. Witness the use of “social credit” scores by the Chinese Communist Party to intimidate and control. Now they’re rolling out new CO2 tracking credit cards.  What could go wrong? Marc Morano posted […]

Biden Wrong On Fires And Ida

September 4, 2021 by

4

By Craig Rucker ~ Hurricane Ida brought powerful wind and rain to Louisiana and drenched the Northeast. Devastating fires have consumed California forests and burned people out of their homes. Politicians and pressure groups, from President Biden on down, rushed to capitalize on people’s heart-rending losses, and exploit them to push the global warming narrative. […]

Afghanistan Climate Nonsense

August 27, 2021 by

0

By Craig Rucker ~ Leave it to Team Climate to exploit the crisis in Afghanistan and get everything wrong. Marc Morano featured on Climate Depot a bizarre headline from Newsweek which implied that the Taliban might not be so bad after all.  This is because, apparently, the Taliban wants to curry good will with the world community by […]

Biden Clueless On Much More Than Afghanistan

August 21, 2021 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ The horrible tragedy in Afghanistan revealed a Biden Administration divorced from reality. President Biden and his people not only failed to validly assess the ramifications of their actions, they froze like deer in headlights and proved unable to adapt and respond as new information became available. Afghanistan turned the Biden team […]

The Coming African Century

August 6, 2021 by

0

By Craig Rucker ~ Africa’s 54 countries together host the world’s youngest and fastest growing population. They are also among Earth’s poorest and most energy-deprived. Average per capita electricity use among sub-Saharan Africa’s 1.1 billion people is a tiny fraction of the USA’s. It’s equivalent to having power 1-2 hours a day, a dozen hours […]

Radical Resetters Publish Plan To Wreck America And The Free World

July 6, 2021 by

6

By Craig Rucker ~ Apparently the problem with the world is that you are too free. Americans must slash our energy use 87% and abandon limited government and our free economy if we are to live “sustainably” and meet the goals of the Paris Climate Accord.  That is according to a peer-reviewed study by five […]

By Craig Rucker ~ China set the fusion reaction record on May 23rd by sustaining a temperature of 120 million degrees C (216 million degrees F) for 101 seconds; far hotter than the temperature of the sun.

Waking Up “Woke” Corporations

May 27, 2021 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ American corporations are surrendering en masse to left-wing and Green ideologues.  They think they can maximize profit through appeasement. CFACT is pushing back hard against this disturbing trend by engaging corporations directly in the boardroom, at shareholder meetings, and by educating shareholders and customers directly. CFACT attended ConocoPhillips recent shareholder meeting, […]

Gas shortage — Toilet paper 2.0

May 13, 2021 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ Why rob banks? “That’s where the money is.” Why attack energy? That’s what drives the economy. I had to visit three gas stations today to find enough fuel to run an errand for my child and then make a meeting. The East Coast is experiencing the kind of gas shortages today […]

Biden’s Offshore Wind Energy Mirage

May 7, 2021 by

3

By Craig Rucker ~ President Biden recently announced ambitious plans to install huge offshore industrial wind facilities along America’s Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Pacific coasts. His goal is to churn out 30 gigawatts (30,000 megawatts) of wind capacity by 2030, ensuring the U.S. “leads by example” in fighting the “climate crisis.” Granted “30 by […]

Are The Texas Blackouts A Preview Of Biden’s Coming Green New Deal?

May 1, 2021 by

5

By Adam Houser and Craig Rucker ~ “Don’t mess with Texas!” Unfortunately, “messing with Texas” is exactly what so-called “renewable” energy recently did with Lone Star residents. In mid-February, extreme cold temperatures rocked the state, as well as much of the nation. Yet, unlike the rest of America, Texas was also hit with widespread power […]

New Study Finds Feeding Cows “Seaweed” Cuts Their Emissions 82%

March 26, 2021 by

3

By Craig Rucker ~ For many environmentalists, there are few boogiemen more notorious than the cow. They fret that that these notorious eco-villains account for 10 percent of U.S. greenhouse emissions, and particularly point to their flatulence and belching as being two of the biggest issues. Now comes some good news to help them sleep […]

COVID-19 Spending To Cost Taxpayers More Than WW II

March 13, 2021 by

5

By Craig Rucker ~ Yesterday, President Biden called on Americans to adopt a “war footing” in our ongoing fight against COVID-19. He got it and then some. Adjusted for today’s dollars the Second World War cost $4.1 trillion. The United States just committed to spend an additional $1.9 trillion, boosting total taxpayer pandemic spending to […]

Electric Vehicle Subsidies And Other Fantasies

March 4, 2021 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ Electric vehicles (EVs) are the future. Everyone will want one because they’re emission-free, ecologically responsible, and more affordable every year. That’s why GM, Volvo, and other manufacturers will soon be making only EVs. Or so we’re told. Some people have high disposable incomes and do most of their driving locally. For […]

Left Spins As Texas Turbines Freeze

February 20, 2021 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ Green energy policies have failed Texas. Power outages, in large part caused by frozen wind turbines and snow covered solar panels, are still keeping nearly 500,000 Lone Star residents freezing in the dark. Now, Big Green and the wind and solar industries are in non-stop spin-mode, trying to drum up an […]

Radical Left Executive Orders Discredit Biden’s Unity Talk

January 29, 2021 by

3

By Craig Rucker ~ The torrent of ruinous policy emanating from the White House continues unabated. As one internet memester put it, “pace yourself Joe, you have four years.  You don’t have to destroy the country your first week.” Generations of Americans worked tirelessly to achieve energy independence.  They realized the dream at last, until […]

Indonesia’s Clean Energy Program Sparks Deforestation Worries

December 28, 2020 by

By Craig Rucker ~ Kermit the Frog once famously quipped “It’s not easy being green.” The nation of Indonesia is no doubt finding this is true — especially as it attempts to transition away from fossil fuels toward so-called green energy. As reported in the publication Mongabay, Indonesia is currently embarking on an aggressive program […]

Listen To The Science

December 16, 2020 by

By Craig Rucker ~ “Listen to the science!” shouts the Left. Are they ready to put their money where their mouths are? No less a scientific expert than Greta Thunberg appeared at a House of Representatives committee hearing and used those very words.  Greta came wielding the latest report by the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on […]

Scientists Develop Earth-Friendly Process To Recycle Lithium-Ion Batteries

November 23, 2020 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ Lithium-ion batteries have their pluses. Their energy density is typically twice that of the tradition nickel-cadmium ones. They are low maintenance. And their discharge is less than half compared to regular batteries. Despite these advantages, however, they do have some environmental drawbacks. One is the fact that they use rare-earth metals […]

By Craig Rucker ~ Hurricane Zeta will barrel into the Gulf Coast on Wednesday. This is normal. The Atlantic Hurricane season runs from June 1st to November 30th.  It peaks around Labor Day.  Late season storms happen.  We’ve got one now.

By Craig Rucker ~ If you thought Governor Newsom using climate to distract from his failure to protect California from wildfires was outrageous, brace yourself for Biden.
