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 […]

December 28, 2020 by

3

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

3

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 […]

September 17, 2020 by

1

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. Presidential candidate Joe Biden’s campaign drove him over to Delaware’s Natural History Museum where he read out the entire litany of the most divisive, unscientific talking points in […]

Kamala Harris Bad Climate Cop

August 15, 2020 by

1

By Craig Rucker ~ As Attorney General of California, Kamala Harris misused her authority to attack the First Amendment rights of climate skeptics and other “deplorables.” In the waning days of the Obama Administration, radicals devised plans to launch a climate inquisition against nonprofit organizations, such as CFACT, that use facts to correct the the […]

August 6, 2020 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ Californians just received terrible news. Marathon Martinez, one of their major refineries, announced that it will go idle indefinitely. This will cost the Golden State thousands of jobs and hamper its economic recovery. Californians already suffer the highest fuel costs in the continental United States.  The loss of this refinery will […]

Biden’s Spoon-Ready “Green” Jobs Plan

July 23, 2020 by

0

By Craig Rucker ~ Joe Biden announced plans to make America prosper through the magic of taxing, spending and regulating. Biden’s plan for economic recovery includes inserting America back into the UN Paris Climate Agreement and spending two trillion dollars on climate change, with 40% of the cash going to “climate justice.” This is as […]

Fact-Checking The Fact-Checkers

July 17, 2020 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ Is there a more insidious threat to free speech online than biased fact-checking? Global warming pressure groups are using every trick in their book to censor and besmirch Michael Shellenberger after he posted an article apologizing for the climate scare on behalf of environmentalists. Forbes actually succumbed to the pressure and […]

Climate Campaigners Want To Make The Shutdown Permanent

June 10, 2020 by

3

By Craig Rucker ~ The world is reopening and economic recovery is gathering steam. Global warming campaigners don’t like this one bit.  They view the COVID-19 shutdown as a model for the future they want. CFACT senior policy advisor Paul Driessen explains: Echoing former Obama science advisor John Holdren, they want the United States and […]

“Scientist” Reveals Politicized GISS As NASA Returns Americans To Space

June 5, 2020 by

By Craig Rucker ~ This has been a (mostly) great week for NASA.  We saw the first successful launch of astronauts into space on an American rocket since 2011 — on a private spacecraft.  Last night SpaceX sent up another Falcon 9 rocket with (count-em) 60 communications satellites on board! NASA getting back to serious […]

“Renewables” Scams On The Ropes

May 6, 2020 by

0

By Craig Rucker ~ The device you’re reading now is likely powered by nuclear, gas, or coal-fired electricity. There’s a smaller chance it may be powered by hydro-electricity or biomass (burning trees, as if that’s Green). There’s little chance, despite billions spent, that it came from wind or solar.  The climate folks and “renewables” corporate […]

Climate Pressure Groups In Conservative Clothing At CPAC

February 29, 2020 by

0

By Craig Rucker ~ Beware of climate leftists in conservative clothing. A group calling itself “republicEn” got itself on a climate panel at CPAC and launched into a personal attack on Princeton physicist Will Happer and Genesis Torres of the CO2 Coalition. After Happer and Torres politely presented facts and science, Alex Bozmowski opened up […]

Time To Retire Polar Bear Propaganda

January 27, 2020 by

4

By Craig Rucker ~ Polar bears are perhaps the most enduring propaganda icon of the global warming campaign. Polar bears’ striking white coats make them great looking animals. Their cubs are positively adorable (when they’re not covered in the blood of their prey). Climate campaigners routinely claim that polar bears are dying out.  The truth […]

Australia’s Fires Are Not Climate

January 9, 2020 by

By Craig Rucker ~ CFACT recently traveled to Australia where we did some serious policy work. Over the years the bonds of friendship we forged with our Australian friends and colleagues have become unbreakable. This is personal. The massive bush fires plaguing Australia are a nightmare. The toll they have taken on Australia’s people and […]

COP 25: UN Climate Talks Collapse

December 17, 2019 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ UCOP 25 was an utter failure for the United Nations. Despite extending the conference into double overtime making it the longest COP ever, the UN was forced to adjourn without advancing the “rule book” for the Paris Climate Accord, or agreeing on a framework for an international carbon market. UN Secretary […]
