Dutch Court Gets Climate Science Wrong

June 10, 2021 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ A recent Dutch Court decision is getting international attention because it commands climate action. The case itself is like angels on a pinhead, so of little interest. Shell Oil proposed to cut CO2 emissions by 40% and the Court made it 45%, both targets being stupid. The real concern is […]

Your Life Under The Green New Deal

October 6, 2020 by

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 […]

Going Zany On Climate

By Peter Murphy ~ The planet is a large place, and its climate is changing, and always has, for a variety of factors far beyond our reach.  One of the major factors influencing climate change is—not surprisingly—the sun itself.

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Kamala Harris did not mention climate change in her acceptance speech, but she did not have to. She talked a lot about justice and justice is now code for climate.

Kamala Harris Bad Climate Cop

August 15, 2020 by

House “Climate Crisis Committee” Issues Massive Meaningless Wish List

July 8, 2020 by

0

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ The U.S. House “Selects Committee on the Climate Crisis” is a symbolic committee, not a real one. It cannot draft and introduce legislation, which is what House Committees do. It is more of a study group and as such it has produced a study. Well sort of. The document in […]
