April 19, 2020 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Green Deal proposals are springing up around the world. The core concept is zero CO2 emissions via decarbonization.

1

By Duggan Flanakin ~ Just over a year ago, newly elected U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D, NY) and U.S. Sen. Edward Markey (D, MA) shocked the world by proposing a Green New Deal.

The Green Bridge To Nowhere

February 19, 2020 by

By Peter Murphy ~ Mankind’s attempt to control the climate is going to be very, very costly – to you. Even worse, there is no guarantee of any benefit, environmental, planetary, or otherwise. Every version of the Green New Deal proposed by various politicians will cost trillions of taxpayer dollars in the near term, which […]

April 24, 2019 by

2

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) is by far the best known climate change alarmist today, having way surpassed Al Gore for that title. Gore is now something of a has-been in the fame department. On the other side, Will Happer is far and away the best known skeptic (not counting President Trump, […]

By Larry Bell ~ Uber-left lunacy has launched climate hysteria and fossil fuel replacement fantasies to record stratospheric levels. Such clueless fictions are being trumpeted to advocate policies which would have disastrous consequences to our national economic and social well-being. A growing public awakening to the transparent ignorance and socialist agendas driving this craziness make […]

February 11, 2019 by

By Ron Stein ~ A hopeful, non-binding resolution has been introduced to both houses of Congress. Representative Alexander Ocasio-Cortez, (D) for the 14th District of New York, god bless her fast beating heart, and Senator Ed Markey (D) from Massachusetts are jump starting again the notion that the world can change in its entirety in […]

By Andrew Bolt ~ Even morons can stop mines and jobs. In fact, that’s all morons can do, since they lack the skills or drive to actually create them. Warren Mundine, the former president of The Australian Labor Party, who is now the Liberal Party candidate for Gilmore, lists just some of the damage done […]

The Wacky “Green New Deal”

January 11, 2019 by

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Most of what has been said about the proposed Green New Deal (GND) has been pretty vague and very hyperbolic, but there are some specifics available. One of the holy texts at this point is a 36 page proposal from the Dataforprogress.org think tank. This report provides hundreds of specific […]

Platte River Power’s “Green” Folly

January 3, 2019 by

0

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ In the wacky game of power generating utilities going green, Colorado’s Platte River Power Authority is a true leader. Today they get 65 percent of their juice from coal, but their new green goal is to be “emissions free” by 2030. “Emissions free” refers to harmless CO2 emissions. As I […]

Anti Fracking Climate Madness In Colorado

November 2, 2018 by

1

By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Al Gore’s endorsement of the anti-fracking ballot initiative in Colorado makes it clear that this is a “leave it in the ground” measure. It is not really about health and safety, homes and hospitals, despite being pitched that way. This is climate activism at work. Proposition 112 is aimed at […]

Keep It In The Ground … By Blocking Pipelines

July 2, 2018 by

0

By Paul Driessen ~ You can understand their frustration, as the steady stream of radical environmentalist successes during the Obama years has been replaced with endless setbacks.

Concerns over impacts from energy projects disappear where “green” energy is involved By Paul Driessen ~ It’s a good thing environmentalists have double standards – or they wouldn’t have any standards at all. Empire State legislators worry that anything above the current 0.0001% methane in Earth’s atmosphere will cause catastrophic climate change, and that pipelines […]

The Cost Of The New Fascism: We Are Dumber And Poorer

By Andrew Bolt ~ A new green fascism is replacing reason and debate with superstitions, fear mongering and bullying, and it is making us poorer and dumber. My editorial from The Bolt Report. Andrew Bolt writes for the Herald Sun, Daily Telegraph, and The Advertiser and runs Australia’s most-read political blog. On week nights he […]

New DOI and DOA policy to cut overgrown, diseased, dead, and burned trees is long overdue By Paul Driessen ~ President Trump promised to bring fresh ideas and policies to Washington.

Anti-mining groups “protect” local tribe against phony risks by trampling on Guatemalan workers By Paul Driessen ~ Not long ago, supposed “environmental justice” concerns at least involved risks to mine workers and their families. The risks may have been inflated, or ignored for decades, but they were a major focus. In one case, a state-run mine […]

Energy Poverty Future

August 20, 2017 by

2

By Craig Rucker ~ Green campaigners like to talk about a future with zero fossil fuels. They also like to, as John Lennon might say, “imagine” a world without nuclear power either. We had best be careful, however, about rushing into the hell they’d prepare for us. Senior policy advisor Paul Driessen reminds us at […]

Why Subsidise Mad Green South Australians?

August 19, 2017 by

2

By Andrew Bolt ~ Maurice Newman is right. Why must richer states here in Australia subisidise the poorer States through the GST collection when some, like South Australia, are making themselves poorer through insane green ideology? Why are we subsidising stupidity? Newman: For example, while Tasmania is richly endowed with nature’s gifts, commercial exploitation consistently […]

March 22, 2017 by

By Andrew Bolt ~ South Australian Premier Jay Weatherill claims wind power will not just power his state but create jobs. But not only does the power go out, the jobs in renewable energy have dived from  2360 to 710 in just four years. Which means his wind towers are just monuments to green madness: […]
