By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The news media has been reporting what looks like a conflict within the Trump Administration, over the national security implications of climate change. Supposedly the conflict is between military and intelligence reports describing serious security implications and the Administrations position that climate change is not a serious threat. There may […]

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Our National Environmental Policy is to let nature take its course and that is exactly what is happening with this catastrophic flooding. Blame Congress, not climate change. The dams that would stop this flooding were designed in the 1960’s but they were never built because of the 1970 National Environmental […]

It is milder than AOC’s monstrosity but it is still a multi-trillion dollar monstrosity. Unlike the GND, and perhaps wisely, Beto’s fantastical blueprint has no name.
