Biden And Manchin – Building America Backward

August 5, 2022 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ Say it ain’t so, Joes! In 2010, when it looked like Senator Manchin could lose reelection to Republican John Raese, Manchin released a famous ad in which he literally shoots a hole in a climate cap and trade bill.  As a Senator from the energy producing state of West Virginia, he […]

Biden’s Climate Crusaders: What Planet Do They Live On?

June 10, 2022 by

5

By Craig Rucker ~ Things in the world have gotten ugly. Stocks are crashing. Inflation and gasoline prices are soaring. Poor and fixed-income families face growing hardships. Putin’s barbaric war in Ukraine rages on. And violent criminals and illicit drugs stream into America along with millions of “undocumented immigrants.” But amid these crises, Team Biden […]

Even Woke Cancel Culture Won’t Save The Left

May 2, 2022 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ Woke Cancel Culture media censorship and thought control has been a potent weapon for President Biden and Democrats, even on gasoline prices. Having promised to end fossil fuel production and use in America, Mr. Biden immediately shut down the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada; halted onshore and offshore leasing; rejected […]

China And India Drive Coal To Record Highs

December 24, 2021 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ Reports of the death of coal are, to quote Mark Twain, “greatly exaggerated.” In fact, the International Energy Agency (IEA) reveals that coal is having its best year ever, propelled by insatiable demand from China and India. Read the IEA’s full “Coal 2021” report at CFACT.org. Here are a few eye-opening […]

COP 26: Obama And AOC Fly In

November 10, 2021 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ Barack Obama may have served as the 44th President of the United States, but he is just as wrong as anyone else who approaches global warming from deep roving left field. “For those listening back home in the U.S., let me say this,” Obama told UN COP 26, “It doesn’t matter […]

UN Climate Hypocrisy In Glasgow

October 29, 2021 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ The UN is heading to Glasgow, Scotland, for “COP 26,” which is being billed as the most important climate conference since Paris. CFACT will be there! COP 26 has been on hold for a year due to fears of COVID-19. It seems the UN has learned the wrong lesson from the […]

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 […]

China’s “Artificial Sun” Beats Fusion Record

June 7, 2021 by

2

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. The experiment took place at “EAST,” the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak in Hefei, China. South Korea held the […]

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 […]
