The Climate War On Food

May 29, 2023 by


By Craig Rucker ~ Then they came for our food supply. CFACT senior policy analyst Bonner Cohen reports at on “climate czar” John Kerry’s recent pronouncements at a Department of Agriculture summit. “We can’t get to net-zero,” Kerry said, “we can’t get this job done unless agriculture is front and center as part of […]

Climate Czar Kerry: Emissions From Agriculture Must Be “Front And Center”

May 25, 2023 by


By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ Farmers and ranchers who assume that their main job is to produce food to feed hungry people stand corrected. John Kerry, the Biden administration’s special envoy on climate, wants to enlist them in the global struggle to combat the “climate crisis.” “A lot of people have no clue that agriculture […]

The Challenge: Replacing The Supply Chain That Supports Humanity

May 23, 2023 by


By Ronald Stein ~ Only a handful of individuals have ever seen or touched crude oil, but every one of the 8 billion on this planet is enjoying the products made from the oil derivatives manufactured from that black gold. Chemical products, such as plastics, solvents, medical supplies, and fertilizers, are essential for supporting modern […]

Where’s The Beef?

May 20, 2023 by


By Peter Murphy ~ America and the rest of the world are headed for food shortages if policymakers enact laws based on climate change. The effort to “decarbonize” or to achieve “net zero” carbon emissions has led to deliberate policies to reduce consumption of fossil fuel energy, that is, oil, natural gas and coal. It […]

JP Morgan CEO Calls On Governments To Seize Land For Wind And Solar

April 12, 2023 by


By Bonner Cohen, Ph.D. ~ Jamie Dimon, CEO of Wall Street investment behemoth JP Morgan, is calling on governments to use the power of eminent domain to seize private property for wind and solar farms, as a means to reach the goal of net-zero emissions. In his most recent annual letter to shareholders, Dimon addressed […]

Energy Chinks In America’s Armor

April 7, 2023 by


By Ronald Stein ~ In a rapidly changing world stage, America’s obsession with climate change, Net Zero emissions, and eradicating fossil fuel products, while transitioning to just electricity from renewables that manufacture nothing for humanity, are exposing kinks in our national security armor. Voters, policy makers, and legislators need to focus on what that is […]

Old Refineries Incapable Of Manufacturing Enough Light Hydrocarbons To Electrify The World

March 31, 2023 by


By Ronald Stein ~ The zero-emission movement in the wealthy countries are experiencing a “dangerous delusion” of a global transition to “just electricity” that eliminates the use of the three fossil fuels of crude oil, natural gas, and coal, that made society achieve so much in a few centuries. As old refineries accelerate their closure […]

Breakthrough! A Big Utility Says Net Zero May Not Be Reliable

March 29, 2023 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ Dominion Energy, the big Virginia utility, has finally admitted that net zero may not work. I have been writing about Dominion, which operates under the net zero Virginia Clean Economy Act (VCEA), for awhile now. VCEA requires Dominion to shut down all gas, oil and coal fired power by 2045. […]

A Simple Reason Why Net Zero Is Impossible

March 18, 2023 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ I have a new study out, titled “Constraining Renewables is a National Need”, that provides a simple reason why net zero is impossible. It is simply impossible to provide enough energy storage to make renewables reliable. The headlong rush to replace thermal power generation with renewables must therefore be constrained. […]

The Exorbitant Cost Of ‘Net Zero’

February 23, 2023 by


By Craig Rucker ~ Many were surprised and angered when a member of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Richard Trumka Jr., floated the idea of phasing out new gas stoves and ovens. To many, it seemed random at the time. The Biden Administration, for its part, withdrew the idea immediately, maintaining they were never planning […]

Absolem And Puff Inspire Today’s Green Monsters

January 7, 2023 by


By Duggan Flanakin ~ Absolem, Lewis Carroll’s blue caterpillar in Alice in Wonderland, smokes a hookah to pose as a creature of great wisdom. He blows smoke in Alice’s face and does little or nothing to help her escape a horrible fate planned by the Queen of Hearts. Puff, many may recall, is “the magic dragon” immortalized […]

Net Zero — The Pursuit Of The Impossible

December 21, 2022 by


By Robert Lyman and Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Prodded by the United Nations and numerous radical environmentalist organizations, many industrialized countries have declared that their policy goal is to phase out the use of fossil fuels (oil, natural gas and coal) and to replace them with all-electric energy systems powered by renewable energy. Unfortunately, most […]

Unscrambling Net Zero Deceptions

October 4, 2022 by


By Dr. Jay Lehr ~ Several states and a significant number of electric utilities have committed to decarbonization goals. Net zero emissions is the term most generally used when expressing these goals. Of course decarbonization is a totally false term. It actually means no carbon dioxide emissions, but as always, the term carbon is scarier […]

Is Net Zero Emissions The Trojan Horse For Society?

September 14, 2022 by


By Ronald Stein ~ The transition to electricity generation from breezes and sunshine has proven to be ultra-expensive for the wealthy countries of Germany, Australia, and the USA representing 6 percent of the world’s population (505 million vs 7.8 billion). Those wealthy countries now have among the highest cost for their electricity, while the poorer […]

Net-Zero Is The Real Climate Catastrophe

September 2, 2022 by


By Duggan Flanakin ~ Maybe Vladimir Putin SHOULD get the Nobel Peace Prize after all. To be sure, Putin’s bloody invasion of Ukraine is an affront to humanity, given his targeting of civilians. Russia even fired upon medical and humanitarian aid convoys and is using a nuclear power plant as a shield for his military operations. […]

How And Why Dominion And Other Utilities Lie

February 24, 2022 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ I recently published a report on how Virginia’s big electric power utility, Dominion, deliberately ignores the fact that the state’s zero emission law does not work. Utilities are doing this around the country, because they will make a fortune building useless wind and solar generation, before they finally admit it […]

Ottawa, Canada Is Following Germany’s Failed Climate Goals

January 25, 2022 by


By Ronald Stein ~ Shockingly, just to reduce emissions to supposedly stop climate change, the city of Ottawa, Canada is following the lead of Germany, Australia, and California that now have among the highest costs for electricity because of their decarbonization efforts. Ottawa is prepared to bankrupt the city and risk the safety of its most […]

Bringing Britain’s Energy Woes To America?

January 19, 2022 by


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 […]

Energy Anguish Hits Britain

January 8, 2022 by


By David Wojick, Ph.D. ~ We are just weeks into winter and already an energy crisis is starting to burn in Britain. Part of this anguish is directed at climate policy, especially net zero. The Brits are way ahead of the US when it comes to threatening people with direct hits, so this is no […]

COP 26: India’s Net Zero Pledge – Does It Really Mean Anything?

December 2, 2021 by


From the team at CFACT ~ By Tilak K. Doshi: As the 26th Conference of the Parties (COP26) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) came to an end last week, India became something of a whipping boy in the mass media, accused of being the “last-minute spoiler” by forcing the summit […]

Africans, Others Incredulous At IEA’s “Net Zero” Blueprint

July 24, 2021 by


By Duggan Flanakin ~ The International Energy Agency may have started a firestorm with its blueprint for achieving “Net Zero by 2050.” Its measures demand a swift and immediate shift from petroleum to energy provided through sources such as wind, hydro, and solar power. To avoid what it considers an impending climate “disaster,” the IEA has […]
