Leftist Intimidation – And Assassination?

June 23, 2022 by

0

By Paul Driessen ~ One year ago, ProPublica published illegally leaked IRS data on America’s wealthiest taxpayers. The “newsroom” said it obtained the information from “an anonymous source,” thanks to the ease with which people with access to information can secretly copy and transmit it with a few mouse clicks. ProPublica piously claimed its actions […]

Don’t Look Up!

April 12, 2022 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ In the Netflix movie, Washington politicians “Don’t Look Up” because they prefer to remain oblivious to a special effects meteor that’s about to obliterate Planet Earth. Not surprisingly, the film is really about our refusal to recognize the “existential threat” of “manmade climate change.” Director Adam McKay recently tweeted, “We’ve got […]

Biden’s Plan To Starve America Of Fossil Fuels

March 28, 2022 by

1

By Paul Driessen ~ Presidential candidate Joe Biden repeatedly promised to end fossil fuels in America. There’ll be “no more drilling, including offshore,” he said. “No ability for the oil industry to drill. No more pipelines.” Shortly after reaching the White House, President Biden ended Keystone XL pipeline construction and began working with congressional Democrats, […]

House Democrats Cancel Looming Energy Embarrassment

March 15, 2022 by

1

By Paul Driessen ~ Mike Tyson once observed, everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth. March 8 was to be anti-oil Democrats’ big day. Having pilloried Big Oil executives during two previous hearings over supposed climate change prevention failures, House Oversight Committee leaders had planned to really tighten the thumbscrews. At […]

Bringing Britain’s Energy Woes To America?

January 19, 2022 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Virginia enacted a Clean Economy Act; other states have implemented similar laws. AOC demands a national Green New Deal; President Biden is imposing one via executive decree. The United Kingdom is determined to reach Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions; the European Union is pursuing a Green Deal. All these policies send […]

Channeling Dan And Jane To Confront Biden’s Energy Mistakes

January 3, 2022 by

0

By Paul Driessen ~ As Covid lockdowns eased this past year, people all over the world went back to work and play. But while oil, natural gas, coal and electricity demand predictably shot up, President Biden canceled and hyper-regulated pipelines, leases and drilling permits. European leaders took similarly shortsighted actions. Inadequate global supplies chased rising […]

The Real Climate And Health Crisis

December 16, 2021 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Climate policies promoted and imposed by Team Biden and Democrats are based on junk science, headline-grabbing scare stories, and computer models that create far-fetched “scenarios” asserting that fossil fuel use and emissions will cause Earth to warm by 4 degrees C (7 F) over the next 80 years, and cause Arctic […]

Review: Don’t Waste Time Or Money On ‘Silent Earth’

October 4, 2021 by

1

By Paul Driessen ~ Book reviews usually tell people, buy this new hardback. This article advises, don’t bother reading Silent Earth, much less purchasing a copy; it’s mostly a junk-science, anti-technology screed. Dave Goulson’s book expands on Silent Spring, Rachel Carson’s polemic against pesticides that helped rid Europe and the USA of deadly malaria, and […]

Confronting Yet Another Indoctrinating School Year

September 15, 2021 by

1

By Paul Driessen ~ Labor Day is over, and millions of American children are back in school for their first in-person classes since March 2020. They and their parents are dealing with anxiety and mixed emotions that promise to make this academic year far more stressful than most. Students and families are being thrown into […]

Europe’s ‘Unprecedented Man-Made Floods’

August 11, 2021 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Deadly floods in Germany and Belgium have put climate change back in the news in time for the COP-26 climate gabfest in Glasgow. Not surprisingly, government officials again blamed fossil fuels, greenhouse gases and manmade climate change for the calamities, to deflect attention from their official incompetence – as they did […]

Another Biden Administration Eco-Con

July 17, 2021 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Via yet another decree (Executive Order 14008), President Biden has instructed government agencies to “permanently protect” at least 30% of all US lands and waters by 2030. This “30 X 30 Plan” appears to presume that any areas not designated as park, refuge or wilderness are not “protected,” even though the […]

REAL Threats To Planet And People

July 7, 2021 by

3

By Paul Driessen ~ Environmental activism was already nasty and lethal when I wrote Eco-Imperialism: Green Power – Black Death 18 years ago. It’s gotten steadily worse since then, especially with hysteria about the “looming manmade climate apocalypse” driving ever more extreme demands that we rid the world of fossil fuels and prohibit or roll […]

Suspect Science Threatens US Farming – Again

February 21, 2021 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Modern American agriculture has wrought miracles over the past 70 years. Conventional farm production per acre and overall nearly tripled, corn (maize) production increased 500% from 20% less land – and farmers used less water, less fuel, less fertilizer, and fewer pesticides and other chemicals for every bushel of food they […]

Two Nuclear Options

January 30, 2021 by

1

By Paul Driessen ~ We’ve heard about “nuclear options” since Harry was still Senator Reid. America now faces two major nuclear options: one involves political power, the other power to run an energy-dependent economy. In the political arena, President Biden and his allies are already going nuclear. With a resurgent Deep State to back it […]

Send The Paris Climate Treaty To The Senate

December 9, 2020 by

1

By Paul Driessen ~ Article II, Section 2 of the US Constitution is simple and direct: “The President … shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur.” It served America well for 225 years. Then, in 2015, the UN’s “international […]

Sheldon Whitehouse’s Climate Inquisition

December 3, 2020 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Five years ago, I said Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) behaves like Torquemada, using Inquisition-like tactics to harass “manmade climate crisis” skeptics, and threatening to prosecute them for racketeering. Tomas de Torquemada was the Grand Inquisitor of the Spanish Inquisition that interrogated, tortured, imprisoned and executed thousands for religious heresy. The senator […]

Your Life Under The Green New Deal

October 6, 2020 by

3

By Paul Driessen ~ During the cantankerous September 29 presidential “debate,” candidate Joe Biden proclaimed “I am the Democratic Party.” He is in charge, he insisted, and his views will be Democrat policy. Others aren’t so sure – about that, about what his views actually are, or about how far to the left he would […]

‘Climate Arson’ And Other Wildfire Nonsense

September 24, 2020 by

1

By Paul Driessen ~ In what has become an annual summer tragedy, wildfires are again destroying western US forests. Millions of acres and millions of animals have been incinerated, hundreds of homes reduced to ash and rubble, dozens of parents and children killed, and many more people left missing, injured or burned. Air quality across […]

Green New Deal Disruption And Destruction

August 22, 2020 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. and Paul Driessen ~ Kamala Harris co-sponsored the Senate resolution to support the Green New Deal. Now Joe Biden has endorsed the plan. Naturally, people want to know what the GND will cost – usually meaning in state and federal government spending. But that is the wrong question. The real question […]

Reporting Renewable Energy Risks

July 2, 2020 by

2

By Paul Driessen ~ Joe Biden has drifted far to the left and made it clear that, if elected president, he would restrict or ban fracking, pipelines, federal onshore and offshore drilling, and use of oil, coal and even natural gas. He’s selected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as his climate and energy advisor and is expected […]

Green New Deal Dress Rehearsal

June 9, 2020 by

0

By Paul Driessen ~ More than 1.4 million cases of Wuhan Coronavirus and 106,000 deaths in the United States alone have accompanied stay-home lockdowns, businesses bankruptcies, over 40 million unemployed workers, plummeting tax revenues and unprecedented debt. Ongoing rioting, vandalism, arson and looting are compounding problems for many cities and minority communities. Yet where many […]

The Real Climate Change Deniers

April 27, 2020 by

3

By Paul Driessen ~ Fifty years ago, I helped organize Earth Day #1 programs on my college campus, calling attention to serious pollution problems that afflicted much of the USA. Over the ensuing decades, laws, regulations, and changed attitudes, practices and technologies reduced most of that pollution, often dramatically. I didn’t buy the 1970 end-is-nigh, […]
