August 4, 2021 by

4

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Whoever came up with the unscientific, fallacious idea of your “carbon footprint”?

April 24, 2021 by

1

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ President Biden’s two day virtual “climate leader’s summit” kicked off on Earth Day. The alarming claims made at Biden’s summit bear little resemblance to reality.  The “solutions” proposed would in the main cause massive economic pain and expense for little or no environmental benefit.  In some cases they would cause […]

Extinction Distortion

March 31, 2021 by

3

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ This is one of the shorter articles I have written each week at CFACT. The reason is that the fraudulent distortion of species extinction has so little data behind it for me to dissect, actually none. So there is little to write about. Patrick Moore did write about it in […]

The Real Reason The Left Wants Only Wind And Solar Energy

February 10, 2021 by

6

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ If a person has any science training and a cursory understanding of how we produce energy by burning coal, natural gas or oil and how we can get some energy from the sun and wind, they would quickly recognize that the nation can not trade one for the other. Yet […]

The Grid: Everyone Knows The Word – Few Understand It

January 28, 2021 by

4

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ When we flip the switch, the lights come on without anyone thinking about it. This has only been true for the last 100 years in metropolitan areas, and for only about 80 in rural areas with the enactment of the Rural Electrification Act of 1936. In 1935, only 25 percent […]

September 23, 2020 by

By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ No nation on Earth has been endowed with more valuable minerals than the United States. We led the world in mining output only 30 years ago. Due to environmental activist resistance and unreasonable EPA regulations our nation has fallen to seventh in mining productivity. Yet the National Mining Association estimates […]

Exploiting Calamities And Climate To Push Socialism

July 9, 2020 by

3

By Dr. Jay Lehr and Tom Harris ~ It should be no surprise to our readers that climate change was never a scientific issue, though politicians and well—financed scientists promoted it as such.
