Idaho Mine Could Bring Back Salmon And Jobs

October 23, 2020 by


By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ Who could possibly object to a project that will boost local employment, clean up waste left over from a bygone era of mining, and reduce America’s dangerous dependence on China for critical minerals? The proposed Stibnite Gold Project in Idaho is unique in that it not only promises to supply […]

Japanese Scientists Use High-Res Mapping To Tackle Plastic Pollution

May 15, 2020 by


From the team at CFACT ~ To be sure, plastic is an important part of our daily lives. Yet when that plastic gets tossed into the ocean, it can become an environmental menace. Recent studies indicate that upwards of 0.27 million tons of plastic are adrift on our oceans. This is not good news for […]

Study Shows Penguins And People A Good Mix

September 11, 2019 by


From the team at CFACT ~ To many, the thought of any intrusion by man into the natural world is bad. But it appears that if you ask a penguin, she may beg to differ. According to researchers from the University of Houston, the increase in human traffic to the Antarctic has not perturbed the […]

How To Solve Algal Blooms? Tech And Property Rights

May 18, 2019 by


By Adam Houser ~ We’ve all been there – you and your friends or family are enjoying a beautiful day on the lake, fishing, boating, or swimming. Then a smell that seems like it could only come from the world’s largest porta potty comes wafting in. No, it’s not from your buddy Jim, despite the […]

Perverse, Conflicted Ethical Systems

May 10, 2018 by


Radical environmentalists put people last, and destroy habitats and wildlife to end fossil fuels By Paul Driessen ~ Third Reich Forest Minister Hermann Goering was an avid hiker and ecologist who once sent a man to a concentration camp for cutting up a frog for fish bait. In 1933 he and other Nazi Party leaders […]

Review: Radical By Nature

March 26, 2016 by


By Edward Cline ~ At the outset, I will admit that this review of Thomas McCaffrey’s seminal book on the history of and devastation wrought by environmentalism from its earliest days to the present, Radical by Nature: The Green Assault on Liberty, Property, and Prosperity, cannot begin to do it justice. As I underscored the […]

The Sea Otters And The Case For Conservative Optimism

August 10, 2015 by


By Daniel Hannan ~ I was in Alaska last week with several hundred clever and patriotic National Review readers. It’s a wonderful place, Alaska. We saw whales and bears and bald eagles and sea otters; and I couldn’t help noticing that, despite the mandatory pessimism of the environmental movement, all these species are becoming more […]

The Environmental Apocalypse

August 9, 2013 by


By Daniel Greenfield ~ Early in the morning, while most are still sleeping, groups of elderly Chinese women spread out across city streets. They tear open trash bags, pick through the litter and sort out bottles and cans that come with a deposit. And then they bring them to the local supermarket to a machine […]

Earth Day: People Are Our Most Precious Resource

April 23, 2013 by


By Katie Tubb ~ Google is celebrating Earth Day with a doodle of sunny skies, mountain peaks, hills, and blue waters. Sure, it’s appropriate to celebrate this wonderful planet we call home. But Google—along with too many others—forgot the most important part of Earth Day: people. The best, most interested, and invested stewards of the […]

Signs Of The Times: New York Times Kills Green Blog

March 5, 2013 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Fewer and fewer people care about the apocalyptic claims and outright lies of the environmental movement these days. The end of the world is nowhere in sight unless a stray asteroid is headed our way and, after some seventeen years of a natural cooling cycle, it’s hard to convince people that […]

Living in a Forest

December 24, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Driving around my hometown and surrounding communities in New Jersey, a familiar sight has been tree stumps, the wreckage left behind by Hurricane Sandy. Having lived here with few breaks my entire life, it never occurred to me how many trees there are. From a lookout point in the Essex County […]

Greener Than Thou

February 21, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The most obnoxious and hypocritical people are those who are always preaching a “greener” way of life, insisting that anything that constitutes our modern lifestyles are destroying the Earth and depleting its natural resources. Never mind that we depend upon oil, natural gas, coal, and a host of minerals and chemicals for that lifestyle, […]

Charles Manson Energy

January 20, 2012 by


By Paul Driessen ~ “… gleaming white wind turbines generating carbon-free electricity carpet chaparral-covered ridges and march down into valleys of Joshua trees.” This is “the future” of American energy – not “the oil rigs planted helter-skelter in [nearby] citrus groves,” nor the “smoggy San Joaquin Valley” a few miles away. The Forbes article’s poetic […]

Electricity, Parks and Progress for Chile

November 12, 2011 by


By Paul Driessen Progress improves lives. It brings better, cleaner, more energy efficient technology. It reduces poverty and improves working conditions, health, nutrition, living standards and social equity. It generates revenues to pay employees, churches and taxes, support government programs, and protect the environment. There can be no progress without investors, inventors, innovators and businessmen […]

Bagging Another Disastrous Green Scheme

August 24, 2011 by


By Andrew Bolt Here’s a trick story, about a mad green plan to save the planet that’s just gone bung. No, no. Don’t guess yet. It’s a green plan based on ludicrous exaggerations and no common sense. It puts consumers to lots of inconvenience, costs plenty, and now turns out to be all pain for […]

What’s Really Killing Carbon Capture and Storage?

August 2, 2011 by


By Paul Driessen Carbon capture and storage could ensure abundant electricity from coal, while cutting the CO2 emissions “responsible for climate change.” Yet, barely two years after “a sense of determination and common cause” inspired the Obama Energy Department to launch CCS projects, industry is “pulling the plug.” What could have gone wrong? Environmentalists had […]

Environmental Activism

July 7, 2011 by


By Herbert London Despite all the talk about energy independence emanating from Washington DC, this government and its allies in the environmental movement do whatever they can to thwart this goal.  Based on reliable discoveries in Utah, Arizona and Colorado there may be enough fossil fuel from shale and natural gas to avoid any reliance […]

Earth Day Predictions of 1970

April 23, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba I do not know the author who compiled these quotes, but they are a good reason why they were wrong in 1970 when Earth Day was established and continue to be wrong today, Earth Day 2011. “For the next 24 hours, the media will assault us with tales of imminent disaster that always […]

Earth Day? Beware The Hype

April 23, 2011 by


By Mike Brownfield Acid rain. Expanding deserts. Global cooling. As explains in its video “The Top Five Environmental Disasters That Didn’t Happen,” all of the above were moments of environmental hysteria that led to nothing. Others they cite? Frankenfoods, the end of biodiversity (the claim that 70-80% of the Earth’s species would be extinct […]

What Greens Really Believe

April 20, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba Earth Day was established in 1970 and millions of Americans and others around the world have been steadily brainwashed to embrace the impression that environmentalism is about protecting the Earth, but when Greens talk among themselves, it is a very different story and a frightening one at that. The massive propaganda program […]

Human Rights for Mother Nature Coming to the UN?

April 15, 2011 by


By Kenneth Spence As part of its initiative “to end capitalism” and realize “harmony” with Mother Earth, Bolivia will propose a U.N. treaty this month for the protection of what it calls nature’s fundamental rights. A “Ministry of Mother Earth” would be created, with an ombudsman to hear nature’s cries and translate them for bureaucrats. From […]

Low-Flush Toilets: The San Francisco Treat?

March 3, 2011 by


By Nicolas Loris Have you noticed that living this supposedly ‘environmentally friendly’ life has drawbacks that don’t make it as attractive as what is made out…..TonyfromOz. San Francisco’s environmentally friendly low-flush toilets are doing what they’re supposed to do: save water. The toilets reduced the city’s annual water use by 20 million gallons, but they […]

Warmists hate not only humans, but the dogs that love them

November 25, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt Matt Smith is a journalism lecturer and thus, of course, a global warmist of the more puritanical kind: Serving up Fido as an entree might be a bit extreme, but one of the most effective ways you can make an impact on your ecological footprint is by not owning a dog… When […]

A green plan to have us all eating bark soup

November 24, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt Let me see if I’ve got this right. Farmers grow crops for food and if those crops fail, they don’t get an income that they would have got for selling that crop to food producers. Now, the Government wants to pay farmers, not to use their land to grow crops, but to […]
